THE RUN UP FEELING DOWN!

Bristol melodic punks THE RUN UP have just unveiled a brand new video.

‘The Upside Of Being Down’ is taken from the band’s new 5-track EP Good Friends, Bad Luck which is set for release through Real Ghost Records on 28 September.

Says frontman Larry Bernard, “We decided on Good Friends, Bad Luck because of the amount of shitty luck we’ve had on the road recently with our van breaking down, missing shows and even getting robbed of our wheels on a dual carriageway in Germany. We are super lucky to have each other to rely on to make the best of the bad situations.”

Formed in 2014, the band released their self-titled debut album last year, and since then have played successful tours of the UK, Europe and the USA. The band head out on a run of UK and European shows this week, kicking off with a gig tonight in their hometown, culminating in a London date at the O2 Academy, Islington. Full dates are…

AMPLINE UNVEIL NEW VIDEO!

Cincinatti post-punks AMPLINE have just unveiled a brand new video for the track ‘Shrunken Heads’.

CURSE OF LONO VIDEO PREMIERE!

London Americana act CURSE OF LONO have a new single out today and they’re premiering it exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

‘Tell Me About Your Love’ is the second single to be lifted from the band’s forthcoming second album As I Fell which is set for release through Submarine Cat on 17 August. The song was written after frontman Felix Bechtolsheimer visited his Grandfather in hospital shortly before he passed away last year.

“I witnessed a conversation between my Grandfather and my Grandmother, who had been married for sixty-nine years and hadn’t spent more than a handful of nights apart in all that time,” says Felix. “My Grandfather had lived through the Holocaust where he lost a lot of family and he had lost his son a few years ago, but he insisted that his life had been amazing. He said that he would love to hang around a few more years but that he was ready whenever his time came. Then he took her hand and said, tell me the stories of our life. And I watched them hold hands and look out over the lake together as they recalled their adventures. It was one of the most emotional things I have ever witnessed but it was also incredibly inspiring.”

The album, which was produced by Oli Bayston at Rancho V, a remote desert studio in Joshua Tree, California and Flesh & Bone Studios in Hackney, is accompanied by a documentary, Somewhere In Their Heads, by Gregg Houston,  which has been nominated for Best Short Documentary at the Los Angeles Film Awards, Best Cinematography at the Independent Shorts Film Festival, Best International Short Film at the Summerfolk Short Film Showcase in Canada, and Best Director and Best Short Documentary at the World Music & Independent Film Festival Awards.

Curse Of Lono play the following dates in August….

JON SPENCER ANNOUNCES SOLO ALBUM!

NYC punk-blues legend JON SPENCER returns returns in the Autumn with his debut solo album and a bunch of live dates.

Spencer Sings The Hits is to be released through In The Red Records on 2 November and features the single ‘Do The Trash Can’, shown here.

To make the record, Spencer headed out to the Key Club Recording Comapany in sleepy Benton Harbor, Michigan where the BLUES EXPLOSION made 2012’s Meat and Bone to lay down tracks with Bill Skibbe, who also produced the most recent BOSS HOG album Brood X, along with keyboard player Sam Coombes and drummer M Sord.

Says Spencer, “Sam is someone with whom I have crossed paths many times over the years. I have always been a fan of his wild keyboard style and twisted tunesmith-ery. (In fact we kicked around the idea of a collaboration way back in the early aughts.) I got to know Sord from previous visits to and projects done at the Key Club, he was the handyman and assistant engineer that turned out to be a great drummer.”

Laying down the basic track during late 2017, the sessions were brought to an abrupt halt when Spencer was forced to return to New York on the sudden death of his father-in-law.

“I had to rush back East to be with family,” he explains. “But we accomplished enough – got basics down for all songs. I went back to Michigan (solo) in January to overdub and mix. In general, throughout the project, I tried not to overthink anything and instead just kept pushing forward, trusting in my instincts. I figured that I had already spent months and years thinking about this record and these songs.”

Set for release on 2 November, Spencer Sings The Hits is available to pre-order here.

Spencer will be playing UK dates at the end of October as special guest to THE MELVINS.

23 Oct Birmingham 02 Academy 2
24 Oct Norwich Waterfront
25 Oct Cardiff Y Plas
26 Oct Leeds Stylus
28 Oct Manchester Academy 2
29 Oct Brighton Concorde 2
30 Oct London Koko

Tickets go on sale on Friday 27 July here.

ANTI-FLAG ANNOUNCE DATES!

Pittsburgh punks ANTI-FLAG have announced a series of UK and Irish dates for the Autumn.

The band, who formed back in 1993, released their most recent album American Fall a year ago. They’ve just released a video for the track ‘Trouble Finds Me’ from the album.

Their UK dates kick off in Birmingham on 30 October and take in a date at London’s Heaven club. Full dates are…

30 Oct – Birmingham, UK – Asylum
31 Oct – Bristol, UK – SWX
1 Nov – London, UK – Heaven
2 Nov – Manchester, UK – Academy 2
3 Nov – Glasgow, UK – Garage
5 Nov – Belfast, UK – Foundry
6 Nov – Dublin, IE – Whelan’s

Support comes from CANCER BATS and WORRIERS.

The band have also announced two happenings of their occasional one day Antifest on mainland Europe.

The first takes place at Paronaat, Haarlem in the Netherlands on 26 October and features Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Silverstein, Cancer Bats, Prestige, Black Peaks, Culture Abuse, Worriers, Tusky and Drones.

They then head to Wiesbaden, Germany on 28 October, where they take over the Schlachthof with a bill featuring Silverstein, Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Cancer Bats, Black Peaks, Worriers and Tusky.

In a statemen, the band say, “Anti-Flag have always seen punk rock as a vehicle for change; community leads to recognizing commonality, which leads to a recognition of our collective power, which leads to us knowing we have the power to create the future we want to see.

“This tour, this line-up, eclectic in sonics but all bands believe in sharing empathy over apathy, optimism over cynicism. The goal is to bring people from all walks of life through the door. Introducing them to new people, new friendships, new ideas.

“As with any Anti-Flag tour, records, bands, and t-shirts are not the predications of our work. Amnesty International, Sea Shepherd, Kein Bock Auf Nazis, (and hopefully many other local organizations) will be involved. Disseminating ideas on how to fight fascism, fight for human rights and fight for the life of our planet at every show. At a time when we see the right and fascism as a whole on the rise, racism being emboldened, and hatred commonplace in public discourse… these shows will hopefully provide solace, a place for us all to come together and recognize our power, recharge our strength and continue to fight bigotry with every breath we take.”

GANG OF FOUR UNVEIL NEW VIDEO!

GANG OF FOUR have just revealed a new video for the track ‘Lucky’ from their Complicit EP, which came out this Spring.

The claustrophobic clip by filmmaker Pete Cannon is a homage to the Italian neo-realist cinema of the 1950s.

Speaking about ‘Lucky’, guitarist Andy Gill explains, “It’s about how luck defines more than we imagine. You might think of the words from Macbeth concerning life being an hour upon the stage where the walking shadow struts and frets but can change nothing. A parallel idea is that luck may have as much impact on the course of a life than anything an individual does. As in Sartre’s ‘les jeux sont faits’, action, truth, morality will always play second fiddle to luck.”

The band have revealed that a new full-length Gang Of Four album, the follow up to 2015’s What Happens Next, is set for September release.

CULTURE ABUSE UNVEIL NEW VIDEO!

Bay Area pop-punks CULTURE ABUSE have unveiled a video for their new single ‘Dip’.

The single is taken from Bay Dream, the band’s first album for Epitaph.

Speaking about the single, frontman David Kelling says, “It’s a song is about missing the ones that I love and time going by so fast. Trying not to get crushed by the pressures of life or losing hope. I feel like a lot of songs start from a place of pain or sadness, and then I process things for a bit and try to find the beauty and hope in life.”

In making the video for ‘Dip’, director Ryan Baxley (with the assistance of Alice Baxley and Brandon Schwartzel) created a human-sized photocopy machine—a process that involved printing 4,500 images, draining 14 drums of toner, and logging 400 hours of work. High-concept yet lo-fi, the video essentially serves as an animated zine, and perfectly reflects the DIY ethos of the band.

“I like the idea that the things I make don’t require a whole lot more than a bunch of effort,” says Baxley. “You don’t need a lot of money or extravagant sets, an art degree, or even a whole lot of skill. Just the willingness to work hard and make shit. And in my case, friends that share the same ethics and are surprisingly willing to work with you. So if anything, I hope this video inspires someone else to make something for themselves, ’cause it’s just fun to do.”

The band are current on tour throughout Europe. Catch them at…

GOING BLANK AGAIN!

Former FOLK DEVILS frontman Ian Lowery has just had his late-80s solo work as KING BLANK reissued by Beggars Arkive.

The Real Dirt was originally released in 1988 through Beggars Banquet’s sister label Situation Two, and featured fellow former Folk Devil Kris Jozajtis on guitar, plus bassist Hugh Garrety, drummer Kevin Rooney and future BUSH guitarist Nigel Pulsford.

Following the implosion of Folk Devils in 1987, Lowery – who’d also fronted Sunderland punks THE WALL and post-punk funkers SKI PATROL – was still contracted to Beggars. Hooking up with Bill Carter of SCREAMING BLUE MESSIAHS, he delivered the single ‘Mouthoff’ under the King Blank name, which led to the recording of The Real Dirt, featuring the singles ‘Blind Box’ and ‘Uptight’, the latter accompanied by a video (above) directed by Viv Albertine of THE SLITS.

Lowery’s musical career continued with THE IAN LOWERY GROUP and DRUG OF CHOICE until his untimely death in 2001. The Real Dirt is the latest in an ongoing reissue project managed by his brother David Lowery and Folk Devils and Ski Patrol guitarist Nick Clift.

The new digital-only edition of The Real Dirt sees all 10 tracks fully digitally remastered with the inclusion of all three singles and B-sides. Buy The Real Dirt here.

TOP GIZAS! SHARKS VIDEO EXCLUSIVE!

SHARKS return with a new album this month, and they’re premiering the first video from it with Vive Le Rock!

‘That Girl’ is taken from Ready Set Go, the band’s second album since their 2014 reunification and the follow-up to last year’s Killers From The Deep.

Speaking about the video, the band commented…

“With a deadline looming and an expensive location on hold, Chris Spedding and Steve ‘Snips’ Parsons were both unavailable to film a promo for their new album Ready Set Go. The ever resourceful director Charles Hennegrave decided to hire 2 professional actors who studied the signature moves of S and S and dressed up in Egyptian Mummy outfits. We think you’ll agree that the result is much better than having two veteran performers make utter fools of themselves.”

Ready Set Go is set for release through 3MS Records on 29 June. It’s available to pre-order here.

STRING ALONG A BLOATER!

BIG BOY BLOATER has unveiled another new video from his new album which is released next week.

‘Stop Stringing Me Along’ is the third video to be taken from Pills, the guitarist’s first album with his new stripped down version of THE LIMITS. It’s released through Provogue/Mascot Label Group on 15 June.

“This isn’t really directed at any one person or a specific organisation, but is a general song about things that have happened to me,” says Bloater about the song. “The shared experience a lot of my musician friends have had and an ode to the old days of the music business – the man with the big cigar who promises the World and delivers nothing is real and he’s still out there! I guess it’s a cautionary tale for anyone starting out in the music industry today!”
