Ready to do this? You’re in luck because PEARS, our New Orleans punk road warriors, kicked off their tour with Teenage Bottlerocket this week! Then Dyingscene posted an exclusive premiere of their new single, Letters to Memaw, which is out tomorrow! You can order your copy today, or snag it directly from the band at one of their shows. Warning, if you are within three feet of the stage, bring a raincoat because it’s officially dubbed the “splash zone” due to the high velocity of vocalist Zach Quinn’s live performance. If you aren’t getting sprayed by his sweat, you just aren’t close enough. Seriously, folks walk out of their shows looking like this! Now sit down and write your grandmother a letter while listening to the new PEARS songs. And catch them at FEST!
San Francisco’s most nefarious residents— Get Dead —have been recording the follow up to their aptly title Fat debut, Bad News. Their new album is being recorded at Motor Studios with Fat Mike producing and will be released early next year. Stay tuned for details! While you wait, go catch their rowdy live show as the band heads out on a 10-date tour with Australia’s finest punks, Clowns, which routes them up and down the West Coast. Check out what Get Dead had to say about recording:
For the last few weeks we’ve been in Motor Studios working on our next full length album. Fat Mike is producing/helping us fine tune our songs and party skills while Josh Garcia is behind the wheel engineering. Meanwhile, we are juggling NA meetings, court dates, tour van insurance fraud allegations, teaching in public school systems, fatherhood, as well us an un-payable bar tab at more than one Bay Area establishment. So just to mellow things out a bit we are hitting the road for some quiet evenings. We are taking a short break from recording to hit the road with the Clowns from Australia for a West Coast tour starting this Thursday in Seattle. The new album is sounding great and we can’t wait to get back and finish it up.
