Andy Suzuki & The Method share “I Can’t Live,” tour (2017)

Brooklyn’s Andy Suzuki & The Method are preparing to release their new album The Glass Hour on February 3. In anticipation, the band shares the anthemic single “I Can’t Live” today with Impose Magazine. Strapped with an invigorating baseline, the track showcases Suzuki’s striking vocals and the duo’s harmonically-rich collaborative talent.

Drawing on their roots in R&B and soul, The Glass Hour is a 13-track-collection collection that radiates a future-pop aesthetic and features first single “Overtime” (via Billboard.) The product of a decade-long creative friendship between Andy Suzuki and Kozza Olatunji-Babumba, the album builds off 2013’s Born Out of Mischief LP and demonstrates their growth into a formidable musical force. Produced by Juny Mag, mixed by Will Hensley, and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Santigold, Lupe Fiasco), The Glass Hour sees the band emerge with one of their most ambitious works to date.

In celebration of album release, Andy Suzuki & The Method will kick off a national winter tour on February 10. Stay tuned for more!

Iron Reagan share video for “Bleed the Fifth,” tour (2017)

Richmond crossover punks Iron Reagan have shared the official music video for “Bleed the Fifth” off their impending Crossover Ministry full-length. Follow the strung-out antics of two rogue cops, played by the stars of Comedy Central’s new show Delco Proper (http://www.cc.com/shows/delco-proper), who stumble into the wrong crowd at the wrong time. Watch the video now at this location.

Hear the previously released track “Grim Business” via YouTube HERE and SoundCloud HERE. Also listen to the album opener, “A Dying World,” via YouTube HERE and Soundcloud HERE.

Recorded by guitarist Phil “Landphil” Hall and mixed by Kurt Ballou, Crossover Ministry features 30 minutes of relentlessly catchy riffs and irresistibly mosh-ready breakdowns paired with lyrics that run the gamut from satyrical to serious.  In the wake of one of the most controversial presidential elections in American history, Crossover Ministry couldn’t have come at a better time.

Additionally, Iron Reagan are featured on a Donald Trump “Inauguration From Hell” inspired cover of New Noise Magazine Issue #30. The special edition features the previously unreleased “Take the Fall” track on limited flexi disc, an 18×24 screen printed poster and a subscription to New Noise Magazine. View the cover and order the limited bundle at this location. Cover illustration by Matt Stikker (@bargainbinblasphemy). All poster proceeds go towards the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Iron Reagan has also announced new Southeast US tour dates with support from Night Birds and label-mates Wrong on select dates following the North American tour with Power Trip. A full tour schedule can be found below.

Diet Cig share “Tummy Ache,” tour (2017)

Diet Cig announce the forthcoming release of their hugely anticipated debut album. Titled Swear I’m Good At This the album will be released on April 7 via Frenchkiss Records. The band share the first single off the album – the highly infectious “Tummy Ache.”

LISTEN to “Tummy Ache

Diet Cig is Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums). The duo have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman’s other band for a lighter. New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 Over Easy EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back.

Swear I’m Good At This accumulates Diet Cig’s tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.

Swear I’m Good At This was produced, engineered and mixed by Christopher Daly at Salvation Recording Co. in New Paltz, NY with additional recording at Atomic Sound in New York City.

Career Suicide share “Distractions,” ready Machine Response for Deranged Records

Career Suicide are finally returning with a new full length called Machine Response (out February 24 on Deranged Records), and you can listen to a new song now (see NPR debut)…

Listen: “Distractions”

Career Suicide is a purist hardcore punk band from Toronto, Canada. Formed in 2001, the band was founded by vocalist Martin Farkas and guitarist Jonah Falco (who splits his time as drummer of Fucked Up).  The band has multiple records under its belt and is no stranger to performing in all corners of the World.

Writhing, sneering, tight cornered Machine Response is the only acceptable follow up album to the blistering and landmark Attempted Suicide. Nearly ten years of beating around the bush, casually playing around the world and drip releasing music along the way, Career Suicide is backed by their best lineup ever, ready to break back through themselves with this new full length. Machine Response veers in and out of pure speed, bursts of melody, and chunky tempo shifts, indenting the long standing influence of early 80s USHC, late 70s punk, and a peppering of 60s swagger, with their own clearly developed style. Dallas Good (Sadies, Andre Williams, John Doe, Half Japanese, Elevator and a million more) presents a magnificently essential 2nd guitar and lead presence; a screaming contribution by great friend and long time supporter of the band, Souichi Hisatake, (Forward, GISM, Insane Youth, Gudon etc) to crack your brain up; artwork in collaboration with Ryan Tong of S.H.I.T. and Toronto’s life-giving Faith/Void; and a thundering recording, once again helmed by the decorated and limitless in his pursuit of smooth hearing loss, Jon Drew, provide the most damaging clarity Career Suicide have been able to capture to date.

Run The Jewels ready RTJ 3, tour (2017)

Jaye Jayle to tour in 2017

Louisville, KY’s Jaye Jayle (feat. Evan Patterson of Young Widows) recently revealed a partnership with label/management team Sargent House.  This deal follows the release of their excellent debut full-length, 2016’s House Cricks and Other Excuses to Get Out, in addition to extensive U.S. touring this past year with the likes of Daughters, Freakwater, Sumac, and others.  

Now, Jaye Jayle have announced a string of of shows in the midwest / east coast this January with Cloakroom and, following the tour’s completion, the release of a six-song split E.P. with Sargent House label mate Emma Ruth Rundle.  Titled The Time Between Us, this split features three songs from each artist and will be available February 24th, 2017.

Formed in 2013, Jaye Jayle are veterans of Kentucky’s dark indie scene.  Naming themselves as a pen name or a pseudonym to veer away from a traditional band moniker, the group sought to eliminate unnecessary variables and deconstruct their compositions down to their most concentrated essence. Jaye Jayle owe less to our nation’s roots music and more to peripheral rock bands that have taken the “less is more” attitude to its furthest reaches. Their music is an exercise in tension and restraint, a tightrope act between singer-songwriter traditions and art rock experimentation, and an intersection of Southern cultural permutations and otherworldly sounds. 

2017 will be an exciting year for Jaye Jayle – more news to surface soon.
