The trailer includes interviews with the likes of Against Me‘s Laura Jane Grace, Scorpios’ John Snodgrass, and Propaghandi‘s Todd Kowalski.

Big D and the Kids Table stream cover of Propagandhi’s “Ska Sucks”

Seemingly out of nowhere, Boston ska-punk veterans Big D and the Kids Table have released a cover of “Ska Sucks” by Propagandhi.

You can give their take on the classic track a listen below.

“Ska Sucks” originally appeared on Propagandhi’s 1993 debut album How to Clean Everything. No word yet on whether Big D will include this cover of the song on an upcoming record.

Edit: This cover actually appears on A Fat Comp: A Fan-Made Tribute to Fat Wreck Chords, which is free to download on Bandcamp.



The Ultimate Punk Rock Valentine’s Day Playlist

We all know that Valentine’s Day isn’t a real holiday. It’s nothing more than a dastardly ploy concocted by advertising conglomerates to separate you from your hard earned money, all cleverly wrapped in pink and red heart shaped boxes of chocolate. However, there’s no reason we can’t use their fabricated, financial booby trap as a good excuse to acknowledge and show appreciation for those we love. Doing that doesn’t cost a dime! Now, the hard part. Outside of Emo, the Punk genre isn’t known to produce a ton of great odes to love. So how will you ever be able to convey your feelings using your preferred music format without racking your brain, trying to remember “that artist, that released that one random love song that one time, on that album about 10 years ago”? Don’t fret! We’ve compiled the most comprehensive list of punk rock love songs for you to woo the love of your life with. Because we’re a bunch of cynical, sarcastic assholes without a romantic bone in our bodies, we’ve decided to exclude the more traditional love songs, which means no Emo bands allowed (I’m certain that over half our readers just cheered, silently in their heads). We’ve included songs from almost every other genre for every type of relationship though. Who knows, perhaps you’ll use one of the songs on our list and end up finding the perfect someone. It’s highly doubtful, but possible. You’ll never know unless you check out our Ultimate Punk Rock Valentine’s Day Playlist, in no particular order below!

Propagandhi play new song live

Progressive hardcore legends Propagandhi delighted fans in Winnipeg, Canada earlier this month with the performance of a new song. The track “Laughing Stock” is the first new material to feature guitarist Sulynn Hago and followers of the band will be pleased to hear that the offering remains faithful to the bands now signature sound. Whilst there has been no official announcement with regards to a time-frame for a new record, the unveiling of new tracks live is certainly a positive omen that the wait is nearly over.

A video from the Winnipeg show can be viewed below.



Propagandhi announce new guitarist

Canadian punk legends Propagandhi have announced guitarist Sulynn Hago (from Feral Babies, New Bruises, and Ink & Sweat) as the replacement for David “Space Beaver” Guillas, who left the band last summer. On joining Propagandhi, Sulynn writes:

“Hey everyone! I’m Sulynn. I’ll be responsible for adding long hair head banging and stage left guitar riffage at Propagandhi shows from here on out. I’m from Tampa, Florida where I spend my days drinking lots of coffee, nerding out on the guitar for hours, running my own business teaching guitar, and squeezing in sweaty yoga sessions when I can. I feel beyond stoked to get to play with a group of guys who have influenced my playing and taste for a very long time. It’s gonna be a rad time, and I hope to get to share the experience with you all. Let’s rage!”

Propagandhi’s latest album Failed States was released in 2012 through Epitaph Records. They have been working on a new record for the past year or so.

Propagandhi still actively writing new songs for next album

Back in July of 2014, we let you all know Propagandhi were working on some new songs for their next full-length album. Yesterday, the band revealed via Facebook that, seven months down the line, they’re still actively working on music for the album. Five days a week, to be precise:

“We’ve been practicing 5 days a week working on new tunes and they are going great! We’ve had a few of our best jams ever in the last couple weeks, if all continues as planned this next record is going to be a really good ‘ern!”

If they keep going at their current pace, I’m assuming we’ll have a new 69-track follow up to their 2012 Epitaph debut Failed States within the next week or so. But I’ll wait ’til the band makes an official announcement before jumping to conclusions.

Propagandhi’s last album, “Failed States,” was released back in 2012 via Epitaph Records. They’re presently working on new material.



Interview: Chris Hannah (Propagandhi) on the best G7 Welcoming Committee releases…and the one that got away

Winnipeg-based G7 Welcoming Committe Records has long been a bastion for all-things politically-charged punk rock. Label head Chris Hannah (most likely better known for his “day job” as vocalist/guitarist for Propagandhi) recently gave a Canadian TV station a pretty extensive interview on the label’s philosophy and history. It includes a list of his favorite releases from the G7 catalog as well as some insight on an album he hoped to release but never got the chance to.

Pretty good read – check it out here.
