Allister (pop punk) to release new record ‘Twenty Years and Counting’

Chicago pop punk veterans Allister have announced that they will release a new record on January 30 via Universal Japan. ‘Twenty Years And Counting’ will feature songs from all of their albums along with four previously unreleased tracks. Given they do not own the rights to their first three records, they have re-recorded some of the old songs. It should be particularly interesting to hear the older tracks re imagined.

Allister’s last official full length was 2012’s ‘Life Behind Machines’. The band has not toured full-time for many years, but the members have remained fairly active in the music world, notably bassist Scott Murphy with his double act with Rivers Cuomo ‘Scott and Rivers‘.

Update: The band filmed two new videos for the release. You can see the video for the new version of ‘Somewhere On Fullerton’ below.

Fenix TX announce new “CRE.EP” release

Houston pop-punk band Fenix TX have been laying low for a long time now, but that has now changed with the announcement that the band will be releasing their first new material in 15 years. The long awaited EP, CRE.EP will feature 5 new songs that showcase the new sound that the band has developed over the course of their 15 year hiatus.

This new release comes as a result of lead guitarist Will Salazar’s near death experience in 2015, which saw massive support from fans around the world in a rally to support. Guitarist Chris Lewis notes, “I got the text message in the middle of the night that Will had a stroke and put an online donation together right away. Will was blown away by the outpouring of well wishes he received. That was a wake up call that nothing in life is guaranteed.”

Pre-orders for the album are currently being taken here.

CRE.EP is scheduled for release on September 30th, 2016 through Cyber Tracks. It follows their 2001 full-length Lechuza.
