Tim Armstrong forms “fictional” side project punk band Landfill Crew, stream first single

It’s getting harder and harder to keep up with Rancid member side projects, particularly Tim Armstrong’s. The latest is Landfill Crew, a fictional animated punk rock band set in the 1980’s. Describing it Tim writes:

I play one of the characters named Bagga and my friend Tippa Lee plays the character Hux. Tippa Lee is one of my favorite Jamaican vocalists that has been recording reggae music in Kingston since the early 80s. J Bonner animated the videos and helped develop the characters. Hope you guys enjoy this 4 song EP as much as we do.”

The aforementioned self-titled EP is being split released via Hellcat Records and Pirates Press and you can stream the title track below.

Punk Rock Bowling 2019 Lineup Announced (Rancid, Descendents and a Crap-Ton More)

We’re six months out from the 2019 installment of Punk Rock Bowling, so you know what that means…it’s lineup announcement time!

As you can see from the epic poster above, the festival, now in its 21st year, takes place in Las Vegas next Memorial Day weekend (May 24 – 27th). The lineup is as strong as ever, with headline performances from Rancid, Descendents and The Specials and it seems to me that it’s a deeper lineup this year with a heavier nod toward the classics than the early announcements of the last couple of years. There also don’t seem to be many – if any – repeats from last year at first glance, meaning it’ll be a totally new experience with a seemingly endless run of bands young and old, big and small (shoutout to my pals in Street Dogs and Louise Distras for getting the call to go back and for local buds Radiator Rattlers for getting their first crack at the PRB goodness). Head here for full ticket info, and start saving your pennies!

“I wanted to do this completely differently because ‘SCUM’ took so long, and I was learning the whole way through making it,” says RAT BOY. “I wanted to make something more personal and raw, which reflected me more. I was trying to find that sweet spot between hip-hop and punk, and Tim really understands that stuff. I’ve never really spoken to anyone else who love hip-hop and punk like I do.”

You can stream “Chip On My Shoulder,” a new track from the forthcoming album below.
