Neverlearn (Melodic) streaming new album “We Want More”

Finnish melodic-punk outfit Neverlearn is streaming their new album We Want More. The album is being released via Fast Decade Records (Finland), Milestone Sound (Japan), and Punk & Disorderly Records (Canada). The new album features ten all new tracks, I must admit I was thoroughly impressed with this one. I particularly enjoy the track “Pest Control”, the intro reminds me of something you might hear from Propaghandi before the song settles into a much more mellow tone, just a great song from start to finish.

Check out the awesome new tunes below.

This is the first new music from Neverlearn since their EP Start Tomorrow, which came out back in 2016. If you’re a fan of Much The Same or Downway, these guys are for you.



New Music: Lucero – “Before The Ghosts” and “PBS – Bluegrass Underground”

Lots of cool news from the Lucero camp this week, so I thought I’d wrap it up in one tidy post. First and foremost, the Memphis rockers kicked off their three-week US tour with such varied acts as Vandoliers, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, and Rhode Island’s The Huntress And Holder Of Hands. Check out those dates here.

Next up, PBS unveiled the band’s performance for their Bluegrass Underground series. It was filmed at The Caverns in Pelham, Tennessee. If you’re not familiar, The Caverns is exactly what you think; an underground music venue set in a cavern deep below the Cumberland Mountains. Cool! Anyway, you can stream the band’s unique performance here.

Last but certainly not least, the band put out a new digital-only release yesterday. It’s called Before The Ghosts: Acoustic Demos and Other Ideas from Among the Ghosts, and as you might imagine, it consists of demos and reworked versions of tracks that appeared on last year’s Among The Ghosts. It’s definitely one for the hardcore fans, but it’s a pretty cool listen as to how the proverbial sausage was made. Check it out here.



Riot Fest 2019 Day 2: Rise Against, Avail, Turnstile and Anthrax Bring the Hard to the Park; The Struts Evoke the Glam Rock 1970’s and The HU Combines New with Very Old

Words: Fredric Hall
Photos and Additional Words: Meredith Goldberg

Day two of Riot Fest 2019, the 15th Anniversary event, saw a bit of a change up. This was a bit slim on the punk side as the metal took over. Still, they were some standouts. You have Avail doing their “Over the James” album set. Honestly, there really is not that much to talk about. Singer Tim Barry mentioned it was his daughter’s birthday which got a collective “awww” from the already captivated crowd.

Avail

 

Avail

 

Anthrax

Anthrax started a few minutes early with a riff from Pantera’s “Cowboys From Hell”, which totally caught me off guard. From there they went into their setlist which was voted by fans via their website. With the band donning Bulls jerseys they tore through all the hits, including “Caught in a Mosh”, “I am the Law” and their cover of “Got the Time”. No “Among the Living” though. Sorry. The did, however, end the set with “Indians” which really got the crowd in uproar. Granted, this isn’t really “punk” but, like I said it was slim pickings that day.

Turnstile

 

Turnstile

Turnstile provided for an especially high energy set under the bright middle afternoon sun. Numerous band members kept busy going airborne and hopping back and forth from stage to speakers. You got the feeling the band members would have like to be performing in the crowd and would be if not for the wide barricaded area/photo pit. Turnstile in a non-barricade venue must surely be mandatory to experience for anyone calling themselves fans of the group.

The Struts

Derby U.K.’s The Struts, with lead singer Luke Spiller, channeling the spirit of Freddie Mercury, took over the Rise Stage. A welcome dose of variety to complement the otherwise predominantly hard-core punk and metal heavy day. Spiller, in a red glittery outfit and thick black eyeliner; and bassist Jed Elliot clad in black leather pants and his leather shirt unbuttoned half way down his evoked 1970’s glam rock.

The Struts

 

The HU

For many Riot Fest attendees, The HU afforded them possibly their first introduction to what the band calls Hunnu Rock. The HU, from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, combine Mongolian throat singing with traditional instruments such as “The morin khuur (Mongolian: морин хуур), also known as the horsehead fiddle, is a traditional Mongolian bowed stringed instrument. It is one of the most important musical instruments of the Mongol people, and is considered a symbol of the Mongolian nation.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morin_khuur].

The HU

Senses Fail

Rise Against

Rise Against

The day ends with Rise Against headlining the evening. Singer Tim McIlarth mentioned he is from Douglas Park (where Riot Fest is held) which obviously get applause from the crowd before going into the hit “Savior” followed by “Prayer of the Refugee.”
