Masked Intruder premiered a new video today for their single “The Most Beautiful Girl” via Noisey/Vice. This sweet tune is culled from their upcoming full length, M.I. which can be pre-ordered here and will be released on May 27th. The band is now en route to Australia where they will commiserate with their criminal brethren and perform at the Hits & Pits Festival! Check those dates, and their upcoming U.S. and European tours here.
We have a brand new Old Man Markley single, Stupid Today which is available now! The release features two brand new songs: the title track is the a-side and an OMM original while the flipside pays homage to their love of NOFX with a cover of “Reeko”. Artwork for the 7" was created by the talented Chris Shary (Descendents, Snuff) and you can pick it up here, or from the band at one of their dates below!
