South African progressive melodic punk hybrid, ATFN (All This For Nothing) is back after a twelve year hiatus to release a new 6-track EP titled Reverence. The EP is dedicated to singer/guitarist Paul Gioia’s former girlfriend, one Marne Esson, who he says, “sadly lost the battle against a darkened mind” in March 2018. That tragic incident was the catalyst for ATFN’s resurgence. “When Paul suffered the loss of his girlfriend Marne Esson in March 2018, drummer Francois Lessing reached out to him and suggested that they reform the band to begin to work on
music as a means of healing through familiar, positive musical connections.” (EPK)
Reverence releases on December 6 with pre-orders available here. All proceeds from album sales will go towards Sparrow’s Rescue Center, described as “a place of refuge and healing for people and animals,” set up in loving remembrance by Marne’s mother.
Today, ATFN is premiering the lyric video for “Divine Contraption”, which is the first single off their upcoming EP. Gioia describes it as “a testimony of love, hope and remembrance to a soul who only enriched our lives and will hopefully inspire those suffering with depression to seek help in family, friends or professionals.” Lessing adds, “This track to me is the first in the current ‘band energy’. It is definitely up a notch in pretty much every department. There was a definiteness of intention, that seems to have engulfed the whole band when we started to work on it.” Stream All This For Nothing’s “Divine Contraption” lyric video below.

California supergroup Angels & Airwaves have released a music video for “Rebel Girl”, the new single from their upcoming as-yet-unnamed sixth studio album on Rise Records and first original song since 2016’s Chasing Shadows EP. If you’re curious what Tom DeLonge has been up to while Lil Wayne is touring with Blink-182, check out the video below for a taste.
Joy Opposites, made up of Adam Graham (formerly of FACT (Japan)) and Imran Siddiqi (formerly of The Amity Affliction (Australia)), have released a brand new EP with the name Bad Phase. You can listen to it below.
The EP features 3 new tracks, and 4 covers of musicians that have shaped their sound over the years. You can find the tracklist below the stream. Bad Phase sees the band head in a new direction lyrically, as well as further exploring the sound of their last full length Find Hell.
On the change, Adam stated: ““Lyrically, these songs deal with societal issues more than personal ones. Both of us have been strongly affected by how the world is changing and how things are spiraling out of control. Our first album was recorded in California – Summer 2016 – pre-Trump and pre-Brexit. So much has changed since then. Divisions between people are getting wider and wider. Our governments, religions and corporations are doing whatever they can to make this worse because that is how they profit … and we’re falling for it. Honestly, it was quite a challenge for me to write about a certain subject rather than about a feeling since my lyrics are generally quite stream-of-consciousness, so this was something new.”

The consistent drummer and creative force behind New York’s Chilton, Josh Carothers, describes the band’s sound as “Alien Skate Rock” and to be fair to him, it’s rather fitting. The debut effort from the fluid lineup, Little Birds is an absolute ripper and showcases the group’s creative songwriting beautifully. Plenty of noodling, interesting musicianship, and a whole lot of straight up rocking out. Alien skate rock is far better than I can come up with, so that’s what I’ll go with.
You can check out Little Birds below. It’s bloody good.

Ohio’s The Story Changes have returned with a new video for the first single off their new album, “Shooting Stars.”
Mark McMillon says, “I love the feel of 80s movies, and what’s not to love about two rival gangs of ‘nerds’ and ‘punks’ battling it out at their local roller rink? I think everyone can relate a little to the nerds as they get picked at until they finally snap and retaliate. I wouldn’t want to be on the other side of the line in that rink when the nerds say enough is enough.”
You can watch the new video below.
The Story Changes new album, To Hell With This Delicate Equation is out on April 26th via Magnaphone Records.

Scenic Presents could hardly contain themselves when they announced they would have a mysterious headliner at Bushwick’s El Cortez Tuesday night and when news broke it would be the World/ Inferno Friendship Society word spread quickly. WIFS at El Cortez was a hot ticket that became a hot and sticky event as about 100 people crammed into the tiny Safari Room.
It was a packed room for the Brooklyn based 7-piece and they delivered by playing the hits with passion and vigor. WIFS was fresh from a show in Teaneck, New Jersey at Debonair Music Hall and after a show over the bridge, it showed they were happy to be back in New York City for the evening.
Songs mostly from Red Eyed Soul and This Packed Funeral dominated the setlist and World/Inferno’s stalwart leader Jack Terricloth kept the energy high in the room from beginning to end. It was a sweaty mess by midset with the entire crowd moshing along and Jack spraying the crowd with his own perspiration.
It was reallyinterestig seeing them in such an intimate environment in their home city seeing as they regularly play venue’s two and three times the size of the narrow hallway of a space at El Cortez. It must have been pretty interesting for Terricloth as well as he proclaimed loudly as soon as he hit the stage, “what the hell are we doing at El Cortez. But reguardless of venue size WIFS gave the crowd an unrelenting set worthy of Madison Square Garden.
Brooklyn punks Cop/Out who will be touring the West Coast in support of Leftover Crack next month went on right before WIFS and they are just about the clostest thing to a super group that the Brooklyn punk scene can produce. All 4 members play in other successful bands and all 4 members help produce New Yorks best punk festival every year, Punk Island.
Cop/Out is still in their infancy and they are already rocking rooms all over the city with a major tour on the horizon. They are definitely worth keeping an eye on. Pop-punkers Fat Heaven and two piece guitar and sax duo Flesh rounded out the evening.

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.
