Info: 
Neighborhoods and Morningwoods, a humorous name that in concert with the 14 tracks is meant to pay homage to a legend in Pop Punk. If you noticed, the songs on this record consist of the entire Blink-182 album 'Neighborhoods'. Most people think this in and of itself is a joke. I mean, why choose to cover what's widely considered to be Blink's worst album? Simple, it's all in an effort to make each and every song sound more like the Blink-182 we all fell in love with back in the day.

To put it succinctly, the reason behind recording this album was to demonstrate how the original record should have sounded. That's not a slight towards Blink-182 either. The fact that fans were disappointed with Blink's latest album shows the kind of high standards that the Future Idiots and the fans hold the legendary trio to.

Joey Cape talks about the new Lagwagon album

 

Our friends of DyingScene did a very nice a interview to the Lagwagon's singer Joey Cape where he talks about the new Lagwagon album and Bad Astronaut¡s b-sides among other things. You can read the entire interview here.

Have there been any moves toward creating a new Lagwagon album?

Yes, yes, just recently. We have always had this thing where we don’t really rush records and because of that the downside is that we have no momentum as a band. The upside of it is that I don’t think we have really released anything that we’re not proud of except that EP “I Think My Older Brother Used To Listen To Lagwagon”. It had a good title, but that’s it. With the exception of that one, we never rushed anything. It’s like when you’re in a band and you’re a songwriter for that band you’re waiting to wake up one day and find out the true identity of your band. People want that stuff, they calculate that stuff, they search through their old records, and they try to figure out what they did before. But the thing is, when a band makes a record with that mentality it doesn’t have the same kind of purity. I don’t think Lagwagon has really done that yet at all. And other than that one EP, and it was only an EP, it’s fine, all our full lengths are really true to where we were at. We take a long time to make records, but we have been touring this whole year to support that box set, and all the old stuff is really riffy. Honestly like doing that all year has kind of awakened something in me. Two months ago we were on tour in Europe and I woke up one day and was like “I got it, I know what to do!” and started writing. I have written a whole bunch of stuff, and basically we’re waiting to finish out this tour and then the Australia tour, and after that we’re gonna get in a room together. I’ve already talked to the other guys in the band about what we’re gonna do.

04. Destroyer of Worlds

Download: Zippyshare
Genre: Progressive / tech skatepunk
Quality: 128 kbps
Release date: 2009
Label: Self Released
MySpace: www.myspace.com/etmmusic

Info:
Erase The Memory blazes with the speed of melodic punk, screams with the intensity of emotional hardcore and blasts with the breakdowns and tempo changes of our metal forefathers. The songs can turn on a dime, switching from lightning speed to driving mid-tempo to brutal collapse and back in the space of a few seconds... .. Buzzing, interplaying dual guitars lead the way (Matt and Brian), pushed forward by a pummeling bass assault (Craven) and a diversified blitzkrieg on drums (Chris, aka Poobie). Meanwhile, singer Drew's vocals and screams fearlessly forge ahead with unforgettable melodies, anguished screams and raw bellows from depths better left unexplored by surface dwellers. ETM formed in the Summer of 2008 as the result of the merger of two long-time cordial Phoenix punk and hardcore bands, Elyasin and Keep/Away. Sharing overlapping members and playing lots of Valley gigs over the years, it was perhaps inevitable that the two would one day merge... .. Destiny? Dead men tell no tales and the bones are silent, so we may never know. But whatever the case, from this happy coupling we now have ETM, combining the strengths of both bands into a powerful and emotional five piece that has been attacking local stages since the release of their initial six-song ep in Fall 2009. ETM are big fans of the Phoenix Suns, beer and all the many peoples of the Earth. Bring them to your town and they'll drink your beer, explore your people and cry about the Phoenix Suns' last season. And, if you give them a minute, they might just rock your socks off... ..
