Guerilla Poubelle (punk) release video for “Golgotha”

French punks Guerilla Poubelle have released a new video for their song “Golgotha”. Guitarist and singer Till had this to say about the new video: “Here’s our new video, we used footage for the Carpenter movie ‘They Live’ (or ‘Invasion Los Angeles’ as they named it in France, don’t ask me why!), what a delight to watch our hero finds out about capitalism and punching cops, destroying a bank and rampaging a TV station building.” The stirring video is about as punk as it comes and features the iconic Rowdy Roddy Piper, and I’m pretty sure you can’t argue with a Canadian who wore a kilt to the squared circle.

Along with the new video, Guerilla Poubelle has announced a tour through Europe with label-mates Arms Aloft.

You can check out the new video and tour dates below.

This is the first new material from Guerilla Poubelle since their acclaimed album La Nausée was released back in 2017. 



TSOL release video for cover of Amerie’s “1 Thing”

Southern California punk legends TSOL have released a video for their surprising cover of Amerie’s 2005 hit “1 Thing”. Frontman Jack Grisham says, “I like go-go music and soul and anything that really moves. I first heard Amerie’s “1 Thing” in 2005, when it was released. Fucking infectious man, the way that groove keeps rolling, and she’s such a great vocalist. The lyrics were your basic relationship trip but then it hit me, this isn’t just a song about some dude, these lyrics read like a song to a system or a government that’d been up to no good. When she sang, “memories keep ringing bells” I was thinking of the state of our union today, the turmoil in our society, and where we’d been before—I was musing on our involvement in the Middle East, Latin America, Vietnam. I was thinking about the dirty deeds that this nation had been up to and then she sang, “why don’t you just admit it” and I realized that no one in power, not in this country, was ever gonna admit that we were wrong.”

You can check out the rousing cover below as well as some tour dates.

The new song will be available on 12″ single. This is the first new music from TSOL since the release of Live At The Observatory last year. You can order the upcoming single here.

According to a press release from TNS, Grand Relapse is the finest work from the Pizzatramp three to date. Guitarist and vocalist Jim had the following to say of it:

“This album tackles the cult of Scientology, the dangers of taking pills on school nights, the stupidity of white racist scum, the systematic destruction of the NHS, the mindless hell of working rubbish jobs and a load of songs about hangovers, comedowns and drinking.”

 

The previous release from Pizzatramp was just last month – a split record with The Domestics called Discipline.

Dead Bars Announce New Album, Release First Single

News that is literal music to my ears: Seattle’s Dead Bars have announced their new album Regulars (due out May 3rd), following up 2017’s Dream Gig. The new album is produced by Seattle grunge legend Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney) and mixed by Jay Maas (Defeater, Ceremony)—bringing some high-level talent to Dead Bars’ boisterous and earnest melodic punk.

They’ve also graced us with a new track—the sludgey, kinda funny/kinda sad banger “I’m a Regular.” Vocalist John Maiello had this to say: “I like this idea of being a regular. There are moments of highs and lows; loneliness and community, sadness and celebration. That’s what it’s like to be in a band. That’s what it’s like to be in Dead Bars.”

Straight from the press release:

“…Yet, while ‘Regulars’ retains much of what makes Dead Bars so great, it is no mere repeat of past successes. Instead, it features the group’s most ambitious songs to date – a consequence of more collaboration and a settled line-up. In turn, this has allowed for more of the group’s classic influences to start informing the songwriting – from the Beatles to Tom Petty and the Stooges.

“Everything was different, this time,” says Maiello. “We jammed a lot more during the writing of this, so there’s definitely more guitar stuff – and more vocal stuff – going on. Also, two of C.J.’s songs made it onto the album.”

The result is 11 songs of heartfelt and passionate punk rock, which will appeal to anyone who has ever struggled to find their place in the world. ‘Lucky’ and ‘Another Day’ are pure garage-tinged pop-punk ragers that are built for sweaty bar-room call-and-responses, while ‘You Never Left’ and ‘Rain’ show the group’s ability to mix the hopelessness and hopeful. ‘Freaks’, meanwhile, is a rallying call for the misunderstood, while ‘Producto Toxico’ – a song about going to an exotic place and doing the same thing you do at home – carries a relatable world-weariness.”

If you aren’t down with Dead Bars yet, check out our reviews (here, here) and then go straight to their bandcamp. New Dead Bars is worthy of your internet excitement.

DS Exclusive: Greg Attonito on “Crucial Moments,” The Bouncing Souls’ thirty year retrospective book and new EP

The year was 1989. The first George Bush had just been inaugurated President, and yours truly was turning ten years old. Bobby Brown’s Don’t Be Cruel and Aerosmith’s Permanent Vacation and Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire” and Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 were in near constant rotation on the Panasonic cassette player in my southern New Hampshire bedroom. Elsewhere in the world, bands like The Cranberries and 4 Non Blondes and Wilson Phillips and The Black Crowes and EMF (remember them?!?) and Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch and Right Said Fred and SHeDAISY were in their formative stages. And down the I-95 corridor in a central Jersey college town, a group of four high school buds, Greg Attonito, Bryan Kienlen, Pete Steinkopf and Shal Khichi, had started a new musical project and were playing the first shows in that new band’s tenure. That band, of course, is The Bouncing Souls.

Fast-forward to 2019. With but a few changes to the role of drummer in their history (Khichi would be replaced by Michael McDermott in 1999; McDermott would in turn be replaced by Hot Water Music’s George Rebelo in 2013) the Souls have at this point carved out a career that includes ten full-length studio albums, countless splits and 7-inches, and long-ago established a reputation as one of the hardest-working groups in the punk rock scene. All the while, the band maintained – and even strengthened – reputations as genuinely good dudes, establishing personal friendships and relationships with fans across the globe.

To celebrate the Herculean achievement that is maintaining a band over the course of three decades essentially without interruption, The Bouncing Souls have a whole slew of special events planned. There are somewhere between 40 and 50 tour dates that’ve already been announced, featuring support from such heavy hitters as Swingin’ Utters, The Bronx and Off With Their Heads. Yesterday brought with it the announcement of Stoked For Summer, the band’s annual outdoor throwdown at the Stone Pony, located along the boardwalk in Asbury Park, New Jersey. All tour dates can be found here, but you’ll have to wait a little while longer for the full Stoked lineup.

But perhaps most intriguing amongst the 30th Anniversary festivities is Crucial Moments. Due out this coming Friday, Crucial Moments is a six-song EP of new material and companion 100-page book that culls stories and pictures and anecdotes from all stages in the band’s career. It’s a compelling trip down memory lane, regardless of when and where you first encountered the Souls on your own musical journey. There are requisite stories from longtime friends of the band like Tim Barry and Dave Hause and Benny Horowitz and Mark Stern and Kevin Seconds and Jack Terricloth. If you’re a longtime Souls fan, you’ll recognize some of the stories from the likes of Dubs and Wig and Johnny X and Matt Gere and Pedro Serrano and, of course, the mighty Kate Hiltz. There are myriad stories, most of them short and sweet, from fans, the true believers and hopeless romantics from all corners of the globe. There are even a few surprisingly poignant stories from the likes of Shanti Wintergate (Greg’s wife) and Dr. Neel Khichi (Shal’s younger brother).

We caught up with Souls’ frontman Greg Attonito via phone from his snowy Idaho home this past weekend to talk about both new releases. As always, we found Attonito to be open, honest, reflective, and pretty fired-up to chat about the legacy that he and his high school buddies Pete and Bryan (with assistance from Shal and Mike and George) over the course of the last three decades. Head below to check it out! While you’re at it, you can check out the first two singles from Crucial Moments here and here. The album is due out on Rise Records; you can still pre-order it here.
