Not Sorry is the first full-length album from Bad Cop/Bad Cop. Aptly titled, Not Sorry —produced by Fat Mike and recorded by Davey Warsop at Hurley Studios in Costa Mesa—brazenly blasts out some of the most vibrant pop-punk around today. Laden with catchy hooks, three part harmonies that’d make The Beach Boys jealous and tons of attitude, all thirteen tracks showcase their uncanny ability to blend aggressive instrumentation with polished vocals. Curious to see them live? We’ve got you covered because they’ll be tearing up North America with hefty amounts of touring to support the release. Don’t be a stranger to our site because we’ll be announcing those dates and premiering a new song shortly. Californians! This is where you should pay attention because Bad Cop/Bad Cop is joining Good Riddance for their series of record release shows starting TODAY in Los Angeles! Don’t miss this bombastic show because both bands will be bringing it. And now, a few words from Bad Cop/Bad Cop:
“We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with Mike on our first full length record. Continuing our creative relationship with Davey and Hurley was very important to us, as we love him and he is such a tremendous part of our sound. We are excited to share Not Sorry with the world—it covers a lot of true stories and ideals, issues we talk about together as a family. Also, the prospect of touring the shit out of the U.S. and more is pretty thrilling. Bring on the month-long slumber parties!”
The new Good Riddance record doesn’t come out until next week, but we just couldn’t wait to share Peace in Our Time with you, considering how amped we are on it! Americans, Australians and Kiwis: go to Pandora now! Europe, we have you covered compliments of Visions Magazine. And we didn’t forget our neighbors to the north: Canadians, Exclaim has your premiere. Californians, Good Riddance launch their series of record release shows this week with label mates Bad Cop/Bad Cop!
Today is the day that we crush you with another ripping new Good Riddance song. Head over to Revolver Magazine to listen to “Disputatio,” lead track from Peace in Our Time, out April 21st! Vocalist Russ Rankin defines the song as “Holding on to what one believes is their truth, even in the face of opposition and ridicule.” The subject matter for their new full-length—their first in nine years—is clear: global turmoil, conflicting ideals and the oppression that corporations inflict in our daily lives are all making living in peace truly a daily exercise. We’ll be premiering their full-length next week, stay tuned for details but you’ll get a sense of the album’s momentum by listening to “Disputatio” and then “Dry Season” which you can hear over at Noisey. Don’t miss Good Riddance live, they’ll be tearing up California this month before heading to Europe to tackle Groezrock in May!

Darius Koski’s debut Fat record, Sisu, is filled with catchy melodies, dynamic songwriting and a slew of instrumentation that weaves it’s way through blues, country and much more. We’ve been doling out songs and doing our best to describe it, but in case you missed the full album stream, you can listen to Sisu by heading to Substream Magazine. Then, read a stellar review or two and grab your copy today! Or, better yet, purchase a copy from the man himself as his tour kicks off this week, winding up and down the west coast. Don’t miss it!
Our favorite highlanders, The Real McKenzies, return with a brand new full-length Rats in the Burlap! The album opens with a rousing anthem and maintains the boot-stomping passion and traditional Scottish elements the band has made a career perfecting. There is no question that they’ve mastered the call of the wild, interlacing their Scottish heritage with street-punk standards making Rats in the Burlap a fast paced, ultra-riffy punk classic. Just check out their latest video ‘’Catch Me’’. It beautifully illustrates the love of their homeland, their punk sensibilities, and their fun-loving sense of humor. Then, bring the whole experience home by listening to the album in full over at Spotify and purchase your copy today. Well, what are you waiting for? Throw on your kilt, throw down some whiskey, and catch them live while they’re still stateside, or when they take over Europe later this month!
