This is a massive thanks to anyone who ever helped us in anyway, whether it be on tour, releasing our records, or just buying our shit and supporting us.

These are the final shows we’ll play, more info on each coming soon. Come and party with us one last time!!”

Mischief Brew releases official statement regarding the passing of singer Erik Petersen

Philadelphia folk-punk band Mischief Brew has confirmed and released an official statement on facebook regarding the tragic loss of their frontman Erik Petersen. What exactly happened is remaining a private matter between close friends and family but the facebook post did state that the band’s upcoming European tour has, not surprisingly, been cancelled and that Erik’s label, Fistolo Records, will carry on. Read the entire statement below.

I never got to meet Erik in person but we communicated quite a number of times over the years via email. As a huge fan of his music I was always struck by how incredibly humble and kind spirited a person he was and I remember how proud I was that he was willing to contribute an unreleased Mischief Brew track to the first comp I ever put out. For some reason I never expect somebody so talented to be so kind and gracious but he was exactly that. I think I speak for a lot of us when I say he and his music will be sorely missed.

Mischief Brew last released a compilation album Bacchanal ‘n’ Philadelphia in January through Square of Opposition Records. Their latest studio album was This Is Not For Children, which came out in June of 2015 via Alternative Tentacles.

But like all great fucking things, it must, at some time, come to an end.Thank you if you helped with a show, bought merch, let us sleep on your floor, or got us ripped drunk or hella stoned. We love you. Thank you to Toby Jeg and Brendan Kelly for their support through the years. Thank you to everyone involved at AF RECORDS. To our friends bands that let us tag along for killer shows throughout the years thank you. You know who you are. Steveo has his Crippling Addictions, and Jeff has his Bella Vista Social Club. Go see them play shows if they’re ever in your area. The list of people that had a hand in this band surviving on a somewhat professional level is 16 miles long. We appreciate everything.

T H M 2006-2016”

The Holy Mess’ final release – an EP titled Trash Age – came out on April 1st. Their last studio album Comfort in the Discord was released back in 2014. The band’s full discography is available to stream and purchase on their Bandcamp page.

Brand New hint at dissolution of band

Although it’s hardly anything new as it’s been happening for a few months now, Brand New appears to have confirmed the rumors that they will be breaking up the band in the semi-near future. This morning the band released three new shirts on their website, with one design featuring an inverted cross made of roses with the text “Brand New 2000 – 2018.”

Of course, it could also just be a promotional stunt of some kind. They are, after all, releasing a new album this year. Anyway, you can check out the shirt design below.

Lionheart announce plans to break up, play final shows

Northern California hardcore band Lionheart have announced that they have decided to call it quits after 12 years together. Prior to the breakup, they will play their final shows and release some new material. The band explains:

“Toured with some good bands, toured with some bad ones. Met some great people, and some complete idiots. Started this band in a living room in San Francisco and ended up getting to see the world. Seen a million bands, scenes, trends, and people come and go- now it’s our time. Everyone has jobs or careers that make doing this (even part time) next to impossible. One more EP, a split with one of our favorite bands, and some final U.S. shows will be announced soon. The current Canadian & European dates will be our last shows in those territories. Thank you for everything- this was one hell of a ride.”

Lionheart released their recent album Love Don’t Live Here last January through their own label LHHC Records.



Suicidal Tendencies part ways with guitarist Nico Santora

Suicidal Tendencies guitarist Nico Santora announced on his Facebook page that he has left the band to dedicate himself full-time to his metal side project Lillake, who have an album on the way. He explains:

“To whom it may concern: I will no longer be playing guitar in Suicidal Tendencies and will be focusing on my new band Lillake as well as opening my availability to tour with other bands. I’m not getting into details and won’t be answering messages about why or what happened, etc. I’ve put my time in, and am ready for new things. It’s been an amazing 4 years, and I am sincerely thankful and grateful to everyone who has supported me from the beginning.”

Who will replace Santora on their upcoming European tour is unknown, but rumor has it that either Mike Clark (whom Santora had replaced back in 2012) or Rocky George (who was the lead guitarist for Suicidal from 1984 to their temporary breakup in 1995) will return to the band. We’ll keep you posted as more details on a replacement for Santora come to light.

Santora isn’t the only member of Suicidal to have left or been missing out on their current activities. Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo filled in for Eric Moore (also a member of Lillake) on the band’s U.S. tour with Megadeth last February, and will be filling in for him again on future tours, which has lead to speculation that Lombardo is a full-time member of Suicidal, but neither Suicidal nor Moore or Lombardo themselves have commented on the situation.

Suicidal Tendencies recently announced plans to release a new EP and full-length later this year. Their most recent studio album 13 was released in 2013.

Bad Ideas announce break-up, release final album

U.K.-based emo/punk quartet Bad Ideas, who had planned to release their third album over the coming summer, have just announced their break-up. Sam Cook, the group’s vocalist, had this to say;

“As the founding member of Bad Ideas all of five years ago, and the main catalyst in this decision, Ive been nominated to write this- but I will try to speak for us as a collective as much as possible here… Bad Ideas has been a massive part of our lives. We’ve had endless amazing experiences, and met countless wonderful people in many different parts of the world. We’ve had incredible support, understanding, and love from so many of these creative, caring and marvellous individuals, and first and foremost- THANK YOU to you all!”

However, this announcement was accompanied with an early release of their final, self-titled album, which you can check it out below. On the early release, Cook had this to say;

“We made a record last summer that we’ve not managed to release yet. Its something we poured a huge amount of time, love, and energy into, and were immensely proud of it. At this juncture it feels appropriate to finally share it with the wider world- We hope you love it as much as we do!”

Atlas Losing Grip throw in the towel

After 11 years as a band, Swedish skate punks Atlas Losing Grip have called it quits, making the announcement through a YouTube video and a short statement. They don’t cite specific reasons for breaking up, but instead say there are, “Too many reasons to mention really.”

ALG was set to play Manchester Punk Festival later this month, but according to festival organizers, they have cancelled. So it seems as though the band will not be playing any farewell shows; we’ll keep you posted if we hear otherwise, though.

Over the course of a decade, Atlas Losing Grip released three albums – Shut the World Out, State of Unrest (one of my all-time favorite records), and Currents – and the Watching the Horizon EP. From 2009-2014, the band was fronted by Rodrigo Alfaro of Satanic Surfers.
