Teen Suicide share video for “Violets,” tour (2016)

Baltimore’s Teen Suicide are sharing a video for their track “Violets” today via Nerdist from their recently released double LP, It’s the Big Joyous Celebration, Let’s Stir the Honeypot, out now on Run For Cover Records.

It’s the Big Joyous Celebration, Let’s Stir the Honeypot is the first release for Teen Suicide since 2012. The band began as the solo project of Sam Ray (Ricky Eat Acid, Julia Brown) with a rotating cast of musicians but has since morphed into a full band. Big Joyous Celebration is now available via the Run For Cover webstore. Teen Suicide embarked on a full US tour this week, all tour dates are below.

Teen Suicide’s new album, It’s the Big Joyous Celebration, Let’s Stir the Honeypot is also, according to the band, their final record. Recorded over fourteen months with a Robert Altman-sized group of collaborators and performers, it’s both a skeleton key for the band’s earlier work & a great corrective addition to it. Updating rather than refuting all of the past themes and styles of their revered first LP “i will be my own hell because there is a devil inside my body”, “Big Joyous Celebration” shifts between punk, noise, country, house & a myriad of other electric dance genres to create something as messy, sprawling, and captivating as its mouthful of a title. Spread over twenty six tracks, there is plenty that Teen Suicide’s swansong has to say for itself in the band’s distinct, enjoyable and refreshingly unique voice.

All Your Sisters share “Open Wide”

A band with a name such as All Your Sisters, whose two sole members are men, is not surprisingly hard to nail down. Ambiguity extends to the band’s genre as well; “I think All Your Sisters is a lot of things: post punk, industrial, noise, ambient,” says frontman Jordan Morrison.  The duo, who hail from deceivingly sunny city of San Francisco, have one foot planted firmly in darkwave and post-punk, leaving the other free to wade through a variety of unconventional influences. Their forthcoming album, Uncomfortable Skin, is steeped in nostalgia, but entirely contemporary and album’s first single, “Open Wide,” seamlessly shifts between genres, yielding a sound that is both brooding and catchy.

After the dissolution of his previous band, Morrison (guitar, synth, vocals) formed All Your Sisters as a solo project, then moved from Reno to San Francisco where he eventually brought like-minded musician Mario Armando Ruiz (bass, synth) into the fold. The duo connected immediately, bonding over their tumultuous upbringings and dark personal tragedies. Their first album, Modern Failures, was released by Belaten in 2014 and then on vinyl by Weyrd Son Records. It was followed by a successful European tour in 2015.  All Your Sisters performs with a palpable sense of urgency. “I get physically and mentally ill if I’m unable to play music for stretches. It’s perhaps the only way I know how to express myself,” says Morrison.

Morrison draws on his personal experiences for lyrical inspiration, especially his time spent working as an EMT. “I was 19, living in Las Vegas and driving an ambulance,” he says. “I became a full blown paramedic by the time I was 23. I eventually moved to Reno and worked for a few more years. The job started to wear on me. I saw the worst things you can imagine. People in their worst, most vulnerable states. There was definitely no sign of a god anywhere “I can’t un-see a lot of what I saw. These images might be in my head forever. So the feelings from it kind of sneak their way into the lyrics”.

Uncomfortable Skin arrives courtesy of The Flenser on July 8, 2016.  More announcements and premieres coming soon.

Mock Orange ready Put the Kid On the Sleepy Horse for Topshelf Records

Having been a band for over two decades, Evansville, IN’s Mock Orange have seen and done quite a bit throughout the years. Despite releasing a handful of ever-evolving albums and EPs, touring the world over, and slowly amassing a devoted fanbase, there was bound to be a hiccup at some point. It arrived upon the culmination of the band’s most recent recording sessions when a hard drive failure meant all of their recordings were in jeopardy. Fast forward a couple years — and several hard drive specialists later — and the recordings were finally recovered safely.

Self-recorded and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side, the result is Put the Kid On the Sleepy Horse — the band’s eighth full length studio album and most cohesive work yet.

In addition to being available digitally, on CD, and cassette, Put the Kid On the Sleepy Horse will be available on vinyl in the following color variations:

Coke Bottle Clear (limited to 100)
Opaque Blue (limited to 200)
180g Black (limited to 700)

Put the Kid On the Sleepy Horse will be released May 20, 2016 on Topshelf Records.

Sneeze to release Rot EP

Careening out of Boston MA’s thriving Allston scene, Sneeze follow up 2014’s acclaimed Wilt LP with six more ferocious cuts. Tracking again with Justin Pizzoferatto at Sonelab, the trio return in somehow even heavier and wilder form on 2016’s Rot EP. Laid down in three days, the band is captured at their rawest and nerviest yet, punching and reigning in equal amounts. Mastered by Carl Saff, and with art by John McCarthy, Rot is certain to make a worthy addition to any modern punk collection.

Preorders include a limited 12″ vinyl press of 300 (100 on Black Smoke color variant) or a limited deluxe cassette that comes with a silkscreen layout. Both come with a digital download of the record.

Upcoming shows
05/14/16 Dover, NH @Red Alert Indoor Skate Park w/Greed Island, Dead Cats Dead Rats, Charles, Shifty
05/28/16 Cambridge, MA @Lilypad w/Shakusky, Spelling (ex Crinkle Face)

A Lovely Crisis sign to A-F Records

A-F Records announced the signing of A Lovely Crisis. Their forthcoming full length, Where Do You Stand? is due out June 3 in CD and digital formats.

Formed in Pittsburgh, Pa in 2010, brought together by a mutual love of old school punk and post-punk artists, A Lovely Crisis is a 4-piece punk rock band that looks to find the beauty that comes out of turmoil. Having spent a large percentage of their lives during war time and financial crisis, their songs give voice to their frustration, touching on corrupt politicians and human rights.

Their new full length, “Where Do You Stand?” is a challenge to the listener to question where they stand on issues that affect all of us. Produced and recorded by Anti-Flag’s Chris(#2)Barker, “Where Do You Stand?” is due out June 3 on A-F Records with extensive East Coast and Midwest touring to follow.

Pre-orders are available HERE.
