    Watch NOFX skewer "Big Pharma" in their new video

    As a four-year wait between albums draws to a close with the Oct. 7 release of First Ditch Effort less than a month away, NOFX have dropped a brand new video for the track "Oxy Moronic," which you can view at left. As the title suggests, the video takes on the pharmaceutical industry with the power...

    Pixies reveal animated video for new 'Tenement Song'

    The new Pixies album is still more than three weeks away, but the iconic rockers have already released a third song from the upcoming set, in the form of an animated video. “Tenement Song” is the seventh track on Head Carrier, due out Sept. 30, but follows on the heels of “Um Chagga Lagga,” which...

    Faith No More reunites with original singer for 2 shows

    With 1989's The Real Thing, San Francisco rockers Faith No More showed America that not only could their idiomatic brand of metal be adventurous and experimental, it could be marketable as well. With the crossover success of tracks like "Epic" and "From Out of Nowhere", the band saw their popularity...

    Hear Freya Wilcox & The Howl cover Fleetwood Mac

    Punk rock has come a long way in the 40-odd years since its inception. In the '70s, a band like Fleetwood Mac would likely have been sneered at by punks from New York to London. Whether fair or not, to punks at the time they represented the ills of the music industry with their highly polished sound...
  • California punks The Shell Corporation announce tour

    California punks The Shell Corporation announce tour

    As you might have guessed, The Shell Corporation are a band with some strongly defined political ideas. Like many punk rock bands, they hold themselves to a strict code of individualism and D.I.Y. methods, and question figures of authority wherever necessary. This subversive stance is by no means...

    Pixies reveal new 'Head Carrier' track 'Talent'

    The new Pixies album is still more than a month away, but that hasn’t stopped the band from revealing another track from the Sept. 30 release. “Talent” is the second song to drop from Head Carrier, following the sonic burst of “Um Chagga Lagga.” While the latter track is an unabashed punk-rock...

    Chixdiggit! celebrate 25 years with their own beer

    You heard that right; 25 years on the scene, and Canadian pop-punkers Chixdiggit! are finally getting their own beer. They certainly won't be the first punk band to have a beer, as labelmates NOFX, fellow Canadians PUP and several others have already done so. It's unlikely they'll be the last either...

    The Interrupters announce tour with Bad Cop/Bad Cop

    Since their inception in 2014, L.A. ska-punks The Interrupters have been on a mercurial rise to the top of the ska-punk scene, releasing two successful albums and even having tracks featured in television advertising. Improbable as the rise of a two-year-old band to the upper echelons may seem, it's...

    Hear a new track from toyGuitar, "Move Like A Ghost"

    Jack Dalrymple has been a fixture in the punk rock scene for years now, but seemingly never with the same band. While his impressive vocal talents have helped bring San Francisco bands like One Man Army and Dead To Me to the forefront of punk rock, Dalrymple always seems to be moving on to a new...

    The Menzingers unveil new track

    Since their 2012 gem of an album On The Impossible Past, which received almost universal praise, The Menzingers have been the undisputed kings of "triumphant sadness". On The Impossible Past tugged at listeners' heartstrings in all the right ways, lamenting the loss of times past yet simultaneously...

    Dinosaur Jr. hit the skate park in new music video for “Goin Down”

    Of all the bands that have come and gone from the alt-rock scene in the late 80s and into the early nineties, Dinosaur Jr. are one of the few that keep finding ways to push their perfected, original garage band sound well into the 2010s. It’s not only their signature style of music that they’re...

    Hear a new track from Against Me!: "Haunting, Haunted, Haunts"

    Earlier this month, Against Me! gave fans a preview into their anxiously awaited 2016 full-length Shape Shift With Me with the first single, "333."

    Japandroids announce new tour dates

    Canadian indie rockers Japandroids waited a while to get noticed, but when they did, they made it count. Despite being initially conceived as a last gasp for the band, their first full-length album Post-Nothing vaulted these indie genre-mashers into the consciousness of alternative rock fans...

    Seattle pop-punks Four Lights stream debut album

    Four Lights are a four-piece punk group from Seattle with some serious power-pop leanings. On Aug. 15 they'll be releasing their debut album Death to False Posi on Bomb Pop Records, and have made it available to stream. Now, the phrase "death to false metal" may sound familiar, as it was first...

    Joyce Manor announce new album, stream new track

    Torrance, CA pop-punkers Joyce Manor have debuted a new track and detailed their upcoming release due out Oct. 7 on heavyweight label Epitaph Records.

    Watch a new video from Brian Fallon (of The Gaslight Anthem)

    It was not so long ago that The Gaslight Anthem were a gruffly melodic punk rock band in the vein of Hot Water Music or The Lawrence Arms. Their first album, Sink or Swim, was a rollicking gem full of jagged guitar riffs and shout-along choruses, but at times it showcased lead vocalist Brian Fallon...

    Riot Fest Chicago announces after shows with Rise Against and more

    Riot Fest has been building up quite a buzz recently, whether by virtue of their viciously sarcastic Twitter account or through the sheer magnitude of the artists they've managed to book (do The Misfits and Morrissey ring a bell?). Now, they've announced the "after-shows" for their Chicago festival...
  • Hear a brand new track from Bayside

    Hear a brand new track from Bayside

    Since forming at the turn of the millennium, Bayside have been a mainstay in the pop-punk scene. They've released six full-length albums in addition to countless EP's and found more and more success as their career has progressed. Coming off their highest-charting release to date in 2014's Cult...
  • Face To Face announce new shows

    Face To Face announce new shows

    Calling Face To Face a "veteran" punk rock group seems inadequate. Although it's true that they're now heading into their third decade as a band, their legacy is so much more than longevity. Compared to bands like Bad Religion or NOFX, they were somewhat late to the skate-punk party, but their sound...
