I am one of those people who always crave something new and interesting. This is most definitely reprensented in the music I listen to. At the end of every year I clear out a large amount of my iPod to make room for new music, something intriguing that I haven’t heard before. Well, this year I have experienced one of my favorite records of the year and it consists of only three songs. The band is Wolfnote and they consist of two members of Harm’s Way. However, if you go into this EP think you’re going to experience Harm’s Way-style hardcore, you may be disappointed. If you go into it with an open mind, I think you will be happily surprised.

Danzig and Cancer Bats on tour together? Sure, I can see that. Throw Pennywise in the mix and you have my attention. That is a strange addition to this tour package and I am curious if fans of the former will dig the latter and vice versa. It should be somewhat interesting to say the least. You can check out the dates below and see if you’ll be hitting up any of these shows. Again, Danzig. Cancer Bats. Pennywise. Weird. Continue reading

No. Not that Death (i.e. the Chuck Schuldiner one). The proto-punk band from Detroit. If you haven’t heard the story of Death, the band that was almost lost forever, check out the documentary A Band Called Death (currently streaming on Netflix). It is a fascinating story about a band consisting of three brothers that actually broke up in 1977. The bands original recordings surfaced in 2009 and, after decades, the album was finally released. Unfortunately guitarist David Hackney had passed away from lung cancer and never saw the bands music explode.
Well, if that interests you, the band is releasing their new album N.E.W. and you can stream it right now. Click on over after the jump and get a dose of the rock and roll that you’ve been craving. Enjoy. Continue reading

Bay Area hardcore/punk/post-punk/whatever band Ceremony announced today the release date for their new LP.
