As if the likes of Strike Anywhere, Belvedere, and Paint It Black weren’t enough, the team behind Manchester Punk Festival have announced yet more bands for their 2017 edition. Joining the already gigantic lineup are Inner Terrestrials, After the Fall, The Afternoon Gentlemen, Muncie Girls, and many, many others (listed below).
There are still some tickets left for the three day event happening in April. If you want to grab one, or you’re planning on attending the festival this year, get over to their official website, for the latest festival news, ticket information, a bit about the bands, and of course the full lineup.
“With Love” was shot by film producers Nine One Films, and documents the band on one of their final tours. The documentary is summarized as: With their final tour looming, hardcore band Expire revisits their roots and embarks on a midwest only house show run playing 12 shows in 11 days. WITH LOVE documents the band’s tour from inside the van, showing and in-depth look at the inner workings of a band coming to a close as they play their most intimate run of shows to date.
Expire has also announced their final run of shows, and their final live show together as a band, the posters for both of which can be found below the video.

The lineup for next year’s Manchester Punk Festival is going from strength to strength with latest addition Strike Anywhere. The Virginia five-piece will round off the Friday evening’s show in style, joining the likes of Paint It Black and Belvedere for a truly spectacular weekend of live music in the city of Manchester, UK. However, Strike Anywhere are not the only festival announcement this week. I have it on good authority that there will be another wave of bands added to the MPF lineup this coming weekend.

Strike Anywhere’s vibrant and prescient style of political hardcore has been around for nearly two decades now. Their last release was in 2009 but the songs still ring as true as ever; if not even more than when they were written. I was lucky enough to catch up with singer Thomas Barnett at the final show of their short run with A Global Threat and War On Women to talk about the politics of punk, how age and experience shape your view on the music that changed your life growing up and the current political climate. You can read the whole interview below.
Strike Anywhere’s last record was “Iron Front” in 2009.

War On Women shows tend to straddle the line between protest and punk show. They exploded onto the scene in 2011 with their 10-inch “Improvised Weapons” and in the last year put out their eponymous debut full-length to thunderous applause from the punk rock community. Malamute sat down (figuratively) with singer/lyricist Shawna Potter and discussed, among other things, the band’s popularity in and outside the punk scene, sexism in Lord Of The Rings and punk show etiquette. You can read the full interview below.
War On Women’s last release was their self-titled full-length in February 2015.

Manchester Punk Festival returns for its third installment next April and the lineup for the event is already starting to look pretty tasty. The festival has grown from strength to strength since its inception in 2014 and this year’s event looks to continue the trend. Bands announced so far include Paint It Black, The Toasters, Larrakia and Edward in Venice.
Manchester Punk Festival is the product of three of the cities best punk-rock promoters coming together to create a massive urban music festival that sprawls across multiple venues. Anarchistic Undertones, Moving North and TNS Records work tirelessly to make the event special and as such Manchester Punk Festival should be on every British and European punk-rockers to-do list for 2017.
If you’re planning on kicking next year’s festival season off in style, then check out the festival website for tickets and follow the event on social media for all the latest news.
It’s the end of a work week; it’s raising a fist; it’s screaming your lungs out—it’s diving headfirst into a hundred sweaty bodies. South Carolina’s Longshot Odds captures the energy and abandon of a raging pit, a marriage of iron-heavy chords and honey-thick leads—the kind of music where the bruising comes with the chorus. Their new EP, Circle the Drain, is a six-song EP from an exciting new voice in punk rock—but what they bring to the table is more than the same old sounds. From the metallic “Challenger,” to the grandiose and cinematic “Movin’ On,” all the way to the bouncey folk of “Blood and Asphalt”—Longshot Odds bring a diversity to their sound practically unheard of in today's skate punk scene. But above all this, Circle the Drain promises deliverance through rock ‘n roll, and Longshot Odds fight tooth and claw to deliver. The EP, out now on Dying Scene Records, can be streamed here.
