Today marks the official release date of the first new slab of Snuff vinyl in just about a decade. In the Stocks is a classic single in all the essential ways: Number one, clearly, is that it is not a CD; it is a 45 RPM 7” vinyl record. Two, the A-side is a hit, a genuine Snuff classic in all senses, destined to be a mandatory part of every Snuff live show from now on (all ONE of them). Three, you get something extra on the B-side, an acoustic version of the Demmamussabebonk classic “Sunny Places”, recorded specifically for this single. And a bonus number four for you rarity-obsessives out there, this single version of “In the Stocks” is a completely different mix from the one that appears on the forthcoming 5-4-3-2-1-Perhaps? album! So if you haven’t already, go order your copy now.
APB! We’re happy (and somewhat afraid) to announce that Fat will be bringing you the self-titled debut full length from Masked Intruder. We’d love to tell you where they’re from and all that other happy stuff, but intel on these hoods is very murky. The record was originally released a couple months ago by our friends at Red Scare, but they called us in for back up. And lemme tell, it’s a real crime scene. What we do know is that these thugs have been on tour with our buds Teenage Bottlerocket and people describe their music as “Descendents meets Jersey Boys”. That’s all the leads we have for now, but the gumshoes down at Alternative Press have been on the case and have a story about the signing. So lock your doors, shutter the windows, and go pre-order the CD or LP. This is the first time this thing has been on vinyl, so pick it up if you know what’s good for ya, bub.
Xmas may have been X’ed back in September when Self Entitled dropped, but given that this is the last Christmas, we thought we should spoil you with one last NOFX limited edition vinyl release. It’s the third single of the year from NOFX, and a double A-side at that: Xmas Has Been X’ed / New Year’s Revolution. The A-side is classic NOFX, a true punk rock Christmas anthem to be filed right next to Fear’s Fuck Christmas. And in typical NOFX fashion, it’s a Christmas story wherein the Jews come out on top. Shocker. Now flip the record over to the AA-side and you’ve got your “New Year’s Revolution,” an outtake from the Self Entitled sessions, followed by a new recording of the much-loved but overlooked gem “Wore out the Soles of My Party Boots.” If you pre-order now, you’ll get the digital copy delivered to you on December 25th, but you gotta wait til the new year to get your vinyl mailed to you. Check the killer original art for both sides below, and pre-order it today!

It’s release day for The Flatliners’ debut full length, Destroy To Create, available on vinyl for the first time ever. Pretty cool way to bring the band full circle as they’ll be kicking off their 10th anniversary tour in Canada this December. Check the dates here, then go buy their first record! If you missed what motivated The Flats to release this, read what Chris Cresswell had to say about it below:
“Ever unearthed an old drawing you did as a child at your parent’s house? Ever gone back and read the weird shit people wrote in your High School year book? Feels odd doesn’t it? You’re proud of what you’ve accomplished, but for some reason, you can’t help but laugh. Well this November, we will be releasing our first album Destroy to Create on vinyl for the very first time ever. The lovely folks at Fat Wreck Chords have reluctantly agreed to allow our die-hard fans to finally snatch up these songs on a piece of wax. And we think it’s a pretty cool way to celebrate the band’s 10th Anniversary.”
