Looks like some new music coming from Challenger! They recently posted this not too long ago. It's a new song, Days Are Gone, coming up on their new EP, Pastor Aleman. Sounding really good. Can't wait to hear the rest of the EP. Be sure to check them out on Facebook HERE.
Four-piece from South Wales, Saturday's Kids, release a new record titled, Grey On White. It's a three way split with label's Art for Blind, Bombed Out, and Time As a Color. The two songs featured on the record are a lot heavier than the material on their 2011 self-titled 10". On Grey On White they open with noisy feedback on mid-tempo drumming and some warm undertones. The guitars are heavy throughout the song and later drop into some hardcore riffs alongside a thick low end. Side B features the song, Black Pocket, which opens with a crispy bassline. The drums are constant on the double-pedal action with a lot of buzz bleeding out from the guitars. Their songs really are a nice blend of rock and hardcore. Somewhere in between the smokey madness and chaotic rock lies a fresh breath of originality. I'm really liking this band a lot right now.

I just heard the new track from Pennywise, All or Nothing, the title track to their new album set to be released May 1 through Epitaph Records. The song features new singer, Zoli Teglas. I've been listening to the song over and over...fantastic track. I've always loved this band and will always love this band.
Opposition Rising (check out their website HERE) are a four-piece consisting of veterans of the Boston Punk and Hardcore scene. The band includes members formerly of Toxic Narcotic and Mouth Sewn Shut. They released their first album, Aftermathematics, in November 2011 digitally. Check it out here on BANDCAMP. It's currently up for free download. The album features 10 songs of tight hardcore punk and ska with some socially conscience lyrics and ideals. The band released the LP with the help of several different labels which includes the band's own label, Opposition Records.
The Seriouslys are a three piece from Las Vegas, Nevada. I heard of the band, but didn't hear their music until recently. Now I wish I was still living up there just to check out one of their shows. Really awesome punk rock. I'm gonna have to agree with their REVERBNATION profile when it says they sound like Lunachicks. I'll say they also kind of remind me of Bangs. They right now have four songs up streaming. The songs sound amazing, loud, catchy, and with lots of vocal harmonies. They even have a SHOW coming up on March 16 in Las Vegas at the Double Down. Check it out!
