Avail Announce More “Over The James” Anniversary Shows

If you’re like me, you’ve been hopeful that the Avail reunion shows were going to make their way outside the Commonwealth of Virginia, and today we can finally say that those wishes have come true!

The monumentally-influential Richmond, Virginia band are taking the show on the road for a long-weekend of Over The James 21st anniversary shows in the northeast: September 6th at Union Transfer in Philly, September 7th at the Warsaw in Brooklyn, and September 8th at Royale in Boston. Support on all dates comes from Angel Du$t. Tickets go on sale this Saturday (4/20) at 4pm Eastern, and at least 200 tickets will be available for walk-up purchase at the Union Transfer, Gramercy Theater and Sinclair Box Offices respectively. All of the gigs will feature the original OTJ-era lineup of Tim Barry, Joe Banks, Beau Beau, Gwomper, and Erik Larson. Pack those sleeping bags and we’ll see ya in line!

Over The James was initially released on April 7, 1998, on Lookout Records, and was later released by Jade Tree a couple years later. Avail’s final release was their 2002 Fat Wreck Chords full-length Front Porch Stories.

The gig will feature the original OTJ-eralineup of Tim Barry, Joe Banks, Beau Beau, Gwomper, and Erik Larson.

Tickets are on sale this coming Friday (March 29th) at 10am Eastern at this here link, so plan your sick time accordingly.

Direct Hit! Stream Latest Music Video “Altered States”

Milwaukee-based punks Direct Hit! are streaming a music video for a tune that appeared on their 2018 album, Crown of Nothing. 

Nick Woods, the vocalist for Direct Hit!, had the following to say about the track chosen to release as a single:

“Devon brought “Altered States” to the table early on in the process of writing Crown Of Nothing. Lyrically, it’s a nihilist song – it’s the point at which the characters in the album’s story find themselves on the same page, and come to a bunch of bleak conclusions about humanity and the afterlife… Even though it’s one of my favorite tracks on the record, if I listen too closely I have to listen to all the rest of the tunes that follow it to remind myself of the redemption that comes from hopelessness. We shot the video pretty quickly in a single night with our pals Adam and Derek and their crew, who’ve created a lot of our media over the last few years.”

You can check out the video for”Altered States” below.

Miguel Chen (Teenage Bottlerocket) Announces New Book, “The Death Of You: A Book For Anyone Who Might Not Live Forever”


Rad news from the Teenage Bottlerocket camp today. The band’s bass player and resident yogi announced details behind his sophomore book. It’s called The Death Of You: A Book For Anyone Who Might Not Live Forever, and it’s due out this coming September on Wisdom Publications. Here’s the book’s description:

DEATH.

Even the word itself probably makes you a little uncomfortable. Just look at it, sitting there, demanding to be acknowledged. It might even make you a lot uncomfortable.

We spend so much time trying to deny death, going on about our lives as if we and our loved ones are immune to it. Then, one day, its truth becomes undeniable. The Death of You doesn’t flinch in looking into this vital, urgent matter. Join Miguel for a wild ride where we get real about death—and even have a few laughs at its expense.

If you might someday die—or if you know someone who will—this book is for you. If you’re afraid of dying, this book is for you. If you’re excited about the Great Unknown, this book is for you. In plainspoken, kind, and encouraging language, Miguel will show you how to transform your relationship with death—and in doing so, you’ll get to know your life in a whole new way. Today is the perfect day to start. Don’t wait—you’re not gonna live forever.

We’re still big fan’s of Chen’s first book, I Wanna Be Well, and have referred back to it quite often since its release last February via Wisdom Publications. We’re sure this one will be much the same! Pre-order yours at Amazon right here while you’re still alive enough to do so!
