Belgian melodic-punks Chump have released a video for their song “Alcohol & Painkillers”. The video features Chump’s good buddies Hitch & Go. Live concert footage as well as the shenanigans a Belgian punk-rock outfit can get into while out on tour gives us a pretty good look into tour life for Chump.
You can check out the new video below.
The song comes off of the punk compilation album Survival of the People of Punk Rock which came out earlier this month.
It seems like it was only yesterday that I was sitting at my dining room table, chatting on the phone with Joey Cape about Lagwagon‘s blistering new album, Hang, which he had semi-jokingly referred to as having been written during his “bitter old man” phase. Somehow, it was actually five years ago! And Lagwagon are back!
The new album, as you hopefully know, is called Railer, and it’s twelve-songs of vintage skate-punky goodness that even includes a jokey-but-still-really-awesome cover of a 1980’s power ballad. Just like the old days! Anyway, the album came out yesterday on Fat Wreck Chords and you can stream the album below, but you really should buy it here and also go here to see where you can catch Caper and the boys on tour with the mighty Face To Face and newly-signed Fat Wreckers MakeWar.

Skate-punk veterans Laughing In The Face Of excel in tight melodic hardcore, riddled with hooks, riffs and head-banging breaks. This is fun, fast punk with rock and metal influences, played by four broke dudes who just love doing it for the hell of it.
‘Running With Coffee’ is the band’s first video single since 2011. It’s an anxious, sarcastic and fun shredder of a tune, showcasing some of LITFO’s adrenaline-drenched race to rush through life.
Formed in the summer of 2009, Laughing The Face of have undergone a number of line-up changes but have stuck with Lockjaw Records since their debut album ‘Lubrication of Social Anxiety’, released in 2011.
“[Running With Coffee’ is] about rushing through life, trying to fit everything in and not necessarily looking after yourself enough in the process,” say frontman Steve Lowry. “Feeling run-down yet pushing on, fuelled on caffeine and what can often seem like a constant manic rush which ultimately wears you down. Daily routines, minimal sleep and then finally things you enjoy in the remainder of time.
It’s one of maybe a few songs on this album that I think, behind the main subject, have an underlying theme of being very aware of how quick time flies. It’s also taking the piss out of the very idea that these kind of issues could even be considered as real problems. Bullshit comes in many different flavours, but you have to sing about what’s real to you and what bothers you, or some cases keeps you going.”
Keep your eyes peeled for new singles and an exiting new release from Laughing In The Face Of in the coming months.

You’ll be pleased to learn that the 12 riff-laden, rapid-as-they-come tracks have lost none of their urgency through the remastering process and it hits just as hard as it did on first release.
The previous release from Chaser was the 2016 effort Sound the Sirens.

Southern California icons The Muffs have announced their new album, the first in five years, titled No Holiday. Out on October 18th, the album will feature 18 songs, written between 1991 and 2017. That’s a long time to wait to record something!
Drummer Roy McDonald adds, “I think No Holiday is the most unique album we’ve ever made — 18 songs that run the spectrum from full-blown productions to intimate home recordings. This was a labor of love for us and I think that comes out in the record. We wanted to create something lasting and special. I, for one, couldn’t be happier with the results.”
You can watch a trailer for the album below.

Ahead of the band’s upcoming album, NOFX have released a brand new single titled “Fish In A Gun Barrel.” In an intro to the song Fat Mike explains that the song was written in 2016 but the band held off on releasing it due to it hitting a little too close to home so soon after the Vegas shootings. Given the recent spate of gun violence in the US earlier this month, the band decided to use the track to help raise funds for Moms Demand Action, a grassroots movement fighting for public safety measures that protect people from gun violence.
Check out the song, along w/ Fat Mike’s introduction below.
NOFX last released Ribbed – Live in a Dive in 2018 via Fat Wreck Chords. Their last studio output was First Ditch Effort in 2016.
