Birmingham art-punks Youth Man have released a video for their song “Valley Girl”. The song comes off the band’s recent aptly named EP Five Songs, released through Alcopop! Records. Youth Man drummer Marcus Perks had this to say about the track: “Valley Girl was the first result of our attempts to distill our songwriting into something that was as direct as possible without being bland. Funnily enough, it’s about blandness. Specifically about basics.”
Check out the new video below.
Five Songs is the first new music from Youth Man since their 2017 release Wax.

The lights dim, the crowd quiets, and a chorus of “Tonight, we’re gonna, fuck shit up! Tonight, we’re gonna, fuck shit up, Tonight, we’re gonna, fuck shit up,” fills the cavernous Warsaw International Polish Home before the demonic despot Jack Terricloth hits the stage with his mischievous gang of rabble-rousers The World/Inferno Friendship Society.
It doesn’t take them long to break into their perennial opener “Tattoo’s Fade” and with its opening notes the clawed hands of the WIFS faithful reached for the heavens and moved toward their frenetic leader, the Pumpkin King. Their mere appearance on stage is a happening, but when the World/Inferno are on like they were for Hallowmas 21 they are one of the most powerful sonic forces on Earth
Hallowmas is so much more than a Halloween concert, it is a New York City underground tradition as important for its fun factor as it’s cultural significance. 21-years isn’t just a tradition, it’s an (and I apologize to Mr. Terricloth for using this word) an institution. It’s New York City’s officially unofficial punk-rock Halloween party.
Year after year WIFS pulls out all the stops for their flagship show and without fail they top themselves every time. The giant Jack puppet that performed the show’s overture was a fitting and creepy ode to Jack’s 1950’s aesthetic, while the addition of an LED screen and graphics added a more modern flair the often more vintage tones the World/Inferno are known for taking on.
Modernity aside The overall feel of the band remains that of the devil’s lounge act and what better night for them to show out than all hallows eve. The crowd full of familiar faces bounced around the room pushing and shoving and singing along because every World/Inferno show is a sing-along.
Through their extended set WIFS played a mix of the hits and the deep cuts and through the revere “Politics of Passing Out” sticks out as a complete highlight of the evening. As does their classic Halloween closer “Pumpkin Time” which when performed was accompanied by a stilt-walking great pumpkin who mid-song stripped out their orange costume into a bedazzled BDSM outfit.
But Hallowmas is about so much more than what songs World/Inferno played or which band’s open, Crazy and the Brains, and Gallows Bound as it were.
It’s about the fact that every year you know it’s going to happen. It’s about getting out there and mixing it up with the creatures of the night and it’s about throwing a New York City Halloween Party that’s meant for the weirdos.

Genre defying, Philadelphia-based five-piece mewithoutyou are streaming their latest album. The record features 12 post-hardcore-influenced, mixed tempo tracks that will likely excite fans of punky sounding music that doesn’t fit into labelled boxes easily.
You can enjoy the latest work from mewithoutyou below. The previous effort from the band was their similarly untitled EP, which came out in August of this year.

We’ve been waiting on this one for a looooong time, and all of a sudden, it’s here!
But first, a history lesson. Viva Death started as a baritone-guitar driven project spearheaded by Face To Face’s Scott Shiflett and Trever Keith. The lineup on the band’s first few albums (2002’s Viva Death and 2006’s One Percent Panic) was filled out by Shiflett’s younger brother, Chris, the omnipresent Josh Freese on drums and producer extraordinaire Chad Blinman (Face To Face, Saves The Day, The Get Up Kids and more). 2010 brought the project’s third release, Curse The Darkness, but also had turned into a labor-of-love project between Blinman and the elder Shiflett, who played virtually all of the instruments on that go-’round.
In the years since Curse The Darkness, Face To Face has obviously become much busier again and Shiflett and Blinman live on opposite coasts, so Viva Death took a back seat. They came together a while back to record a brand new album, and the fruits of their labor are finally upon us. The new album is called Illuminate, and it is due for release on October 26th. Pre-orders are available at all the normal outlets here, and you can check out the album opener “Ready To Go” below!
