Noi!se (street punk) release new single “Mass Apathy” ft Skinhead Rob, donate proceeds to charity

Punk has never been a stranger to tackling controversial issues. On the contrary, for more than 40 years, punk has shown time and time again to be a LOUD voice of reason and unity in a chaotic, irrational and often devastating reality. True to their punk roots, Tacoma streetpunks NOi!SE tackles these issues head-on, more specifically here, the issue of gun violence and school shootings, in a very powerful, non-political way.

“Mass Apathy” (previously unreleased) is brutal, and the intentional vocal silence between verses is deafening; a symbol of lives [children] lost. The words themselves and the vocal contribution from Skinhead Rob (TRANSPLANTS/RANCID) really bring it over the top.

Stream the single below.

Unquestionably, this important song and message will spread far and wide, adding a colorful set of voices to an already loud and vibrant movement. The real goal though is to get people standing up and demanding changes to policies that endanger the lives and futures of America’s children.

In response to the recent barrage of public shootings, especially those involving school children, NOi!SE and Pirates Press Records will donate all proceeds from this song/record to several charities. In the true spirit of this band, and to make sure no voice is unheard, fans will have the opportunity to vote on the charities which will receive donations on behalf of NOi!SE and Pirates Press Records.

Riot Fest Recap – Day Two (Street Dogs, Total Chaos, Conflict and more)

Riot Fest’s second day found that bastard, the sun, at it again when California punks Total Chaos began their afternoon set. Before they began, they did treat the crowd with a quick verse from Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades”during soundcheck. The band played a blistering set of breakneck punk like “In Unity,” “Riot City” and their recent track “Street Punx”off their eponymous EP. Both the band and the crowd were wearing studded jackets, patched-up vests, Mohawks and liberty spikes.

Lower Class Brats keep the momentum going. Wearing all black and singer Bones channeling his inner Adicts with his derby hat, the Austin, Texas band covered “All The Young Dudes” as a dedication to David Bowie. The rest of the set was blessed with an insane circle pit and folks just crowd surfing.

British anarcho-punks Conflict were a bit disappointing. Keeping up Lower Class Brat’s all-black-everything look, the band tried their best to get the crowd going with a smattering of success. Even singer Colin Jerwood (the only original member), stepping off stage to sing and greet the crowd didn’t help. Add to the equation some problems with the vocal mic and the overall set was a bit of a let down.

Street Dogs, on the other hand, put on a pumped set. Even with their covers of “Guns of Brixton”, “Borstal Breakout,” and “Blitzkrieg Bop” the Boston band infused it with a kinetic energy that slammed the crowd into hysterics. Even singer Mike McColgan stage dived and kept singing while he was crowdsurfing.

Street Dogs announce new album, tour dates (East and West coast)

Working class punk rockers Street Dogs are preparing for the release of their sixth studio album titled “Stand For Something or Die For Nothing”, due out June 22 via Century Media.

“The dumbing down of America is a reason to write songs in 2018,” vows Mike McColgan (vocals). “The theme is wake the f*ck up and the working class needs to unite across all colors, creeds, nationalities, genders and realize that we are being pitted against each other by snake oil salesmen and autocrats.”

“Punk, to me, is people living how they want to not how they are told to,” says McColgan. ‘Stand For Something or Die For Nothing’ expresses that ideal through songs like the title track that focuses on freedom of speech and “Working Class Heroes” that focuses upon living the American dream. 

The album was recorded at Woolly Mammoth Studios, Sugarland Studio, and Q Division Studio and was produced by bassist Johnny Rioux.

You can check out the album artwork and track listing, as well as several upcoming shows, below.
