Comeback Kids will release one of the raddest albums of 2014 in March and the band has released a teaser for the track “I Depend, I Control.” This track sounds like a killer and it only makes you want to hear more. I promise you that you will not leave this sixteen-second teaser and think this will suck. Check out the teaser after the jump. Word. Continue reading
My day started up late, circa 1 PM, nauseated and banged up from the usual “it’s probably Asbestos” climate of my upstairs bedroom. What started as just a few videos on r/youtubehaiku somehow turned into two hours and at that point, I presumed it to be the right time to start the day with some breakfast. Fish cake noodles…along with a viewing of Bad Boys II, which culminated around the slo-mo sequence where Martin Lawrence gets shot in the ass, the fated dropoff point for the eternally damned Michael Bay film which to the chagrin of the writers of Hot Fuzz, I have yet to finish. My pops and I headed down from Van Nuys to Pomona for me to hit up Gnarmageddon III at the Glasshouse and for him, to prepare for the day after of midi-tracked keyboard karaoke sessions AKA every party my family will ever celebrate AKA IN THIS INSTANCE as my grandpa and uncle’s death anniversary party version 2K14.

Sacramento’s own Death Grips have a history of surprising just about anyone that follows their exploits. 2013 proved to be no different due to various show cancellations and other controversies, but the band seems to be finishing the year out by dropping a new record for free on the internet with absolutely no warning whatsoever.
In this review Profane Existence, one the most trusted names in crust/d-beat, were kind enough to furnish me with preview copies of their 2013 Limited Edition Singles Series. With 12 7″s of some the best crust, d-beat, powerviolence, grind,Oi!, and even some folk punk; your ears will sure to never find themselves bored with this eclectic mix of all things punk.
When the band emerged, I didn’t really think I would be getting into Iron Chic. I thought their name was funny enough but I didn’t think their music would live up to my expectations. As a huge fan of punk, the term “melodic punk” isn’t usually something I usually seek out, but I decided it was time I check into Iron Chic because, well just because. As it turns out, the band is currently streaming their new album The Constant One right now and you can check it out below thanks to the Dan Ozzi over at Noisey! Continue reading
