2Minute Minor (Hardcore, IL) Announce Album “Snake That Ate Its Own Tail”, Stream Title Track

Chicago hardcore act 2Minute Minor have just announced that they will release a new album this summer. Titled Snake That Ate Its Own Tail, it’s the first new collection of music from the five-piece since the 2017 effort, Blood on Our Front Stoop.

According to the band’s Bandcamp page, during the process of recording the album, there was quite a serious lineup change. Therefore, the first five tracks are with the previous lineup and the end of the record is with the new. The only two consistent members are vocalist Wiley Willis and guitarist Bob Shields.

 

The band had the following to say about Snake That Ate Its Own Tail:

“We decided to name the Album “Snake That Ate Its Own Tail” because it’s a symbol of the eternal unity of all things, the cycle of birth and death -the infinite circle that continues, a rebirth if you will. We feel that 2Minute Minor has been reborn and find this album title quite ironic; appropriate and suitable for our reincarnation of this circle of 2Minute Minor.”

The full release will be happening on July 1 but you can listen to the record’s title track below.

Manchester Punk Festival 2019: Photographers’ Spotlight

This year’s Manchester Punk Festival was yet another sublime cacophony of smiles, sounds, and sozzles. As always, the organisers went above and beyond to make it an event to remember. The addition of even more styles of music, the addressing of previous years’ venue capacity issues, and the trial run of a new three-full-day format all enhanced what was already the obvious highlight of the UK festival calendar.

Rather than cover the event by way of endless stream of “and then I watched…., and they were good”, I thought it’d be great to shine a little light on some of the unsung heroes of festivals and live musical performance in general – the gig photographer. Seeing a wicked set of pictures can take you back to watching a band absolutely smash it or turn an idea of a punk rock road trip into a reality for next year. There’s always loads of great pictures of festivals too but it’s rare you get to see the work of (nearly) all the photographers in one place.

With that in mind I tracked down as many of the photographers covering Manchester Punk Festival as I possibly could; the idea being to showcase what they think to be their finest work from the event. Below, you’ll find their submissions, along with a few words from each about their experience of the festival and their work outside of documenting all things punk.

 



Breather (alternative/melodic punk) release new single “Your Body Separates”

Check out the video for “Your Body Separates” (which was directed by Ryan Mackfall) using the player below.



Broadside (pop punk) deliver first new songs in two years

Virginia pop-punk band Broadside have made two new songs available. Before heading out on their first tour of 2019, Broadside have released ‘King Of Nothing’ and ‘Empty’. Their last album, ‘Paradise’ was released in 2017 through Victory Records.
