AGAINST ME SINGLE

Tom Gabel from AGAINST ME have posted a blog entry  discussing the story behind "I Was a Teenage Anarchist" and it covers much of his political development as a teenager in Florida and on early, solo Against Me! releases:

I got into radical politics when I was 15 years old, shortly after discovering punk music. At first I thought punk was just nihilism, misanthropy, self destruction, Sid Vicious. Then when I was 15 I got beat up by the cops; the experience changed my life. […] The experience politicized me. I dropped out of high school. I started doing a zine. I started a distro of political pamphlets and Anarcho-punk records. I started a Food Not Bombs chapter with a group of friends. We met other like minded people across Florida and started a radical activist network.

The real revolution was the political awakening. That initial spark that made me want to change the world. And that’s what I’m interested in, maintaining that fire. That’s what the song is about.

The song, of course, comes with a twist with the band singing about a fantasy football team of counter culture icons like Bob Marley, Joe Strummer, Syd Barrett, Marc Bolan, Patti Smith, Lee Scratch Perry, Frida Khalo, Elvis Presley, John Lennon and Iggy Pop playing alongside historical genius like Leonardo Da Vinci and Ghandi and captained by George Best in what Goldblade consider to be the most unbeatable team of all time.    The band are also recording a Portuguese version of the song for Brazil where the band are really popular.    Goldblade are playing several festivals over the summer including a headline slot at Rebellion festival in Blackpool on August 12th.    The single comes with a rebel folk mix and a dub mix from the band.

DEVO-SOMETHING 4 EVERYONE

 DEVO are set to release their first new studio album in 20 years.  The new album, entitled "Something For Everybody," is the follow-up to 1990¹s ³Smooth Noodle Maps.²  UK release date for the album is Monday June 14th, followed by North American release on Tuesday 15th June.  "Thirty years ago, people said that we were cynical, that we had a bad attitude," says Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh. "But now, when you ask people if de-evolution is real, they understand that there was something to what we were saying. It¹s not the kind of thing you want to see proven right, but it does make it easier to talk about."  More than three decades after the release of their visionary debut, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo, and a full 20 years since their last studio album, Devo are back with the aptly titled "Something for Everybody". The long rumored, wildly anticipated album (which was recently launched with a memorable performance in Vancouver at the Winter Olympics) features the band's classic line-up - Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh, Gerald and Bob Casale ‹ joined by drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n' Roses).  Click here for the full announcement and album artwork - http://www.noblepr.co.uk/Press_Releases/wme/devo.htm  Produced by Greg Kurstin (The Bird & The Bee), the album also includes contributions from John Hill and Santi White (better known as rising hip-hop star Santigold), John King of the Dust Brothers, and the Teddybears.  Devo's sound, style, and philosophy have been an influence on artists from Rage Against the Machine to Lady Gaga. Kurt Cobain once said, "Of all the bands who came from the underground and actually made it in the mainstream, Devo is the most challenging and subversive of all."  "The world is in sync with Devo," says his band-mate and co-writer Gerald Casale. "We¹re not the guys who freak people out and scare them - we¹re like the house band on the Titanic, entertaining everybody as we go down."

DANZIG ALBUM N’ TOUR

 DANZIG: DETH RED SABOTH (The End Records; June 22)  Glenn Danzig, at the forefront of the hardcore/dark metal movement for nearly three decades, announces a special nine-city concert trek that will kick off in Norfolk, VA on June 15. The dates, played to usher in the release of Deth Red Sabaoth(evilive/The End Records), Danzig's first new studio album in six years, will feature long-time Danzig cohort, guitarist Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry), drummer Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative) and former Samhaim bandmate, bassist Steve Zing. Support for the east  coast dates will be Gorgeous Frankenstein, the band of original Misfits member Doyle, and Seventh Void, the band that includes of Danzig/Type O Negative drummer Johnny Kelly and Type O guitarist Kenny Hickey.  A special internet pre-sale has now launched at www.ticketmaster.comand is ongoing through Thursday, May 13. During this internet pre-sale, fans who purchase a ticket can also purchase a special, limited edition Danzig 7" vinyl single with two brand new songs - "On a Wicked Night," the first single from the new album, and "The Revengeful." See the itinerary below for on-sale info and where to purchase tickets.  Danzigplans to dig deep into his career-defining catalogue and perform tracks from Danzig, Lucifuge, How the Gods Kill, and on up to the present, including several new songs from Deth Red Sabaoth.  "Danzig fans have their own favorites from throughout the years," said Glenn, "and I hope the set list we put together will satisfy everyone."  Deth Red Sabaoth, which marks Danzig's ninth studio venture that began back in 1988 with the Rick Rubin-produced, Platinum-certified Danzig, is an 11-track collection penned by Danzig, and is laced with Glenn's lycanthropic growls and blues-infected wailing. Tracks  including "Black Candy, "The Revengeful," and "On A Wicked Night," emit a spectral glow to rival the highest points in Danzig's colossal discography. Part I of the exquisite two-part "Pyre of Souls" opens with acoustic guitar, haunting piano, Glenn's plainsong vocal, and an almost dirge-like feel; Part II explodes with electric guitars and a driving, mesmerizing cadence.  In addition to the upcoming Deth Red Sabaoth, Danzighas just published a book of  select, previously unreleased Misfits, Danzig, and Samhaim lyrics, titled "Hidden Lyrics of the Left Hand" (Verotik). The book features illustrations by Simon Bisley, who has painted numerous album covers for Danzig and collaborated on many Verotik comic titles.  Glenn Danzighas received many titles, from the Godfather of Dark Metalto a punk pioneer to a man of integrity, but most agree that over his near-30-year career, his intense musical and lyrical statements have left a permanent mark on rock music. He is a gifted songwriter, and his songs have been covered by such diverse artists as Johnny Cash, Metallica, Guns N' Roses, and Roy Orbison, just to name a few. His "13," originally written for Johny Cash and then recorded for Glenn's own Satan's Child, was the  opening song in last year's box office smash and Golden Globe winner, The Hangover. Danzig's music is dark, gothic, and haunting, and continues to influence generation after generation of musicians and music fans across the globe.  Confirmed itinerary for Danzig's special nine-city tour are as follows:  JUNE  15 Norva - Norfolk, VA (public on-sale May 14 @ 10AM through Ticketmaster)  16 The Fillmore, Charlotte, NC  (public on-sale May 14 @ 10AM through Ticketmaster)  18 Nokia Theatre, New York, NY  (public on-sale May 14 @ 10AM through Ticketmaster)  19 Trocadero Theatre, Philadelphia, PA  (public on-sale May 14 @ 10AM through Ticketmaster)  21 House of Blues, Boston, MA  (public on-sale May 14 @ 10AM through Ticketmaster)  24 Knitting Factory, Boise, ID  (public on-sale May 14 @ 10AM through Ticketfly)  25 Knitting Factory, Reno, NV  (public on-sale May 14 @ 10AM through Ticketfly)  26 Nokia, Los Angeles, CA  (public on-sale May 14 @ 10AM through Ticketmaster)  27 Regency Ballroom, San Francisco, CA  (public on-sale May 16 @ 10AM through Ticketmaster)  www.myspace.com/danzig

SOCIAL DISTORTION -NEW DEAL

 SOCIAL DISTORTION SIGNS WITH EPITAPH RECORDS   Epitaph Records is proud to welcome Southern California¹s iconic rock Œn¹ roll group Social Distortion to the label with plans to release their first studio album since 2004 in Fall 2010.  The signing pairs one of rock Œn¹ roll¹s most renowned bands with one of the most respected independent labels for what could be the greatest match in decades.   "We feel that Epitaph has a natural understanding of Social Distortion; both the history of the band and the direction we want to go,² says frontman Mike Ness.  ³Combine that with their successful track record and it felt like a good next step for us. We've always been open to new ideas and pushing the envelope, but we have also been very conscientious about the decisions we've made. We considered a lot of options, but in the end, Epitaph feels like the right home for us. We're looking forward to taking this step forward, opening some new doors with this upcoming album and this next chapter of Social Distortion."   ³My relationship with Mike goes way back to the beginnings of our careers in the LA music scene,² adds Epitaph owner and president Brett Gurewitz. ³Through the years Social Distortion have been a matchless voice in American rock and roll and I couldn't be more thrilled to play a part in the next chapter for this great band.²   In March the band entered a Burbank studio to record their yet to be titled seventh studio album, produced by Mike Ness, which is slated for release this fall.    ³We went back to tape, old compressors and old microphones,² Ness recently told Spinner.com. ³We¹re just really trying to fight modern technology as much as possible.²     ³The record reminds me very much of Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell (the band¹s 1992 release), but also I'm bringing elements of early New York '70s punk," said Ness.   Social Distortion also recently announced a U.S. summer tour with Dan Sartain and The Action Design. The tour kicks off July 27 in Poughkeepsie, NY and makes seven stops in the Northeast before the band heads to Chicago for an August 7 main stage performance at this year¹s Lollapalooza. Dates with Dan Sartain and The Action Design resume in Green Bay, Wisconsin on August 8. A complete list of tour dates follows.   Formed in Fullerton, CA in 1979, Social Distortion have spent the last three decades performing their signature style of roots driven rock Œn¹ roll and hard luck stories for fans worldwide while recording six classic, critically heralded albums including Mommy¹s Little Monster, Prison Bound, Social Distortion, Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell, White Light, White Heat, White Trash and Sex, Love and Rock Œn¹ Roll.
