If a brand new song off LAGWAGON’s upcoming album, Hang, doesn’t get your blood moving on a Monday, nothing will. Today, Revolver Magazine is premiering the album’s leadoff tracks, a one-two punch of “Burden of Proof”—the poignant introduction to the entire album—followed by “Reign,” an instant Lagwagon classic and a total ripper. All Hang pre-orders come with two BONUS TRACKS and a DVD; head over to grab your copy today! Then, check the dates for their upcoming North American tour with label-mates, the Swingin’ Utters. The tour kicks off next month and trust us, you don’t want to miss it. Dates and tickets here.
The muse has given generously to Koski, Bonnel and company as of late, resulting in a wealth of fantastic new music, with all of us the lucky beneficiaries. Today you have the privilege of pre-ordering the fabulous new Swingin’ Utters album, Fistful of Hollow. Listen to the title track below if you need any convincing. Every pre-order will come with a 10-inch Swingin’ Utters punk patch! In case you’ve been sleeping on this great band’s recent output, we’ve also got a very limited number of colored vinyl copies of Poorly Formed and Stuck in a Circle.
The Dwarves with a record on Fat? Yeeah! And it’s about time.We’re longtime fans and while we’ve admittedly squirmed at some of their record covers over the years, that’s part of what makes The Dwarves the “motherfucking rock legends” that they are. Plus, you know, they invented rock ‘n’ roll! You know what to expect: high velocity punk rock ‘n’ roll with loads of hooks, visceral cover art and raucous live shows. So of course we wanted to work with them! A handshake deal was struck at a Bl’ast! show and the result of this summit of world powers is the four-song blast, Gentleman Blag. Due out late this Fall, the EP features a rare cover appearance from lead vocalist Blag Jesus, alongside the cover models you’d expect. But you’re going to have to wait until you get this limited edition slab of wax in your hands to discover the equal opportunity ideals on display when you turn this sucker over… if you dare! Like the recent album on Recess Records, Gentleman Blag was recorded by Andy Carpenter at Brand Bjork’s (Kyuss) studio and features guest vocals by Dexter Holland (Offspring) and Rex Everything a.k.a. Nick Oliveri! And, coming full circle, the recording features ALL the Dwarves, including HeWhoCannotBeNamed and Salt Peter from the original lineup. And now, a brief quote from the man himself, Blag Jesus:
‘The song “Kings of the World” reminded me of that Fat Wreck Chords sound-straightforward punk, big harmonies and lyrics about social issues. In other words, it was just the opposite of “Gentleman Blag,” which is about how big my cock is. Combined with a stoner style track from Nick Oliveri and another song so short it’s over before it starts, I thought we had a perfect Fat 7"!’
We hope you’ve got your reading glasses and dancing shoes handy, ‘cuz Mad Caddies have a brand new lyric video premiering today at AUX! The vid is for the contagious ditty “Down and Out", the lead track from their latest album, Dirty Rice.
