Red Scare to release comp with unreleased Brendan Kelly, Broadway Calls, Sundowner and more

Red Scare Industries is celebrating their 15th anniversary with the release of “Red Scare Industries: 15 Years of Tears and Beers,” a compilation featuring new, previously-unreleased songs from Brendan Kelly (covering The Lillingtons), Broadway Calls (covering The Menzingers), the first new Sundowner song in years, the first new Lippies song since they reunited, as well as tracks by Sincere Engineer, The Copyrights, Elway, The Bombpops, Tightwire, Ramona, MakeWar, Billy Liar, and more. Here’s what the label says:

Fifteen years?!? Now that Red Scare has overstayed its welcome for a decade and a half, we figure we better celebrate it… ‘cuz no one else will! We’ve got the label’s past, present, and future represented on this album: fifteen Red Scare artists with fifteen brand new, unreleased songs. Good ones too! The keen observer will recognize some Red Scare covers in the mix. That, along with some cool artwork/liner notes and a bonus poster with the vinyl make this a pretty sweet package. Needless to say, it requires a lot of support from listeners and the underground music community to last this long, and these fifteen hits are the best way we can repay y’all. Crank it or spank it, comrades.

The comp comes out September 27 via Red Scare (pre-order digital or physical). Check out the full tracklist below.

The beautiful Upcote Farm hosts a weekend of chaos known as 2000 Trees Festival (or Trees if you’ve been before), cutting off the real world (in the literal and figurative sense) for punks, indie kids and the hardcore faithful.

DS Exclusive: Amos Pitsch (Tenement) Interviews Walt Hamburger about The Hamburgers’ First Show in 9 Years

The Hamburgers were a pop punk band from Appleton, Wisconsin that I recall existing between the years 2004 and 2005. My high school band, Social Classics, often played locally with them at coffee shops and VFW halls; in basements and fast food joint parking lots. For me, at sixteen years old, they filled a void where no energetic, melodic, and slightly juvenile music existed anymore in the Northeast Wisconsin region. They encompassed the idea of fun and did it without an air of pretension. They seemed almost like a cartoon strip in band form and I think managed to make an impression on a lot of young minds in spite of themselves. As the years have passed, Walt and I continue to evolve into such different people, but I still consider him one of my closest friends; a madman at the wheel that somehow manages to continue to steer himself toward his own personal success. He’s released two solo albums on Lagwagon front-man Joey Cape‘s record label One Week Records, crosses the ocean yearly to play for international fans, and finds purpose at home running his own non profit organization dedicated helping animals in need. This weekend, The Hamburgers are reuniting at Appleton, Wisconsin’s Mile Of Music Festival for their first performance in nine years.

-Amos Pitsch, July 2019
