Skateboarding in the 1960s


Shot by Bill Eppridge back in the 1960s for LIFE magazine, these black and white images depict both kids and adults skateboarding around New York and, by the looks of it, this was a time when anyone could get involved and skating wasn't so frowned upon by society like it sometimes is now.

New NOFX double A-side single



From the Fat Wreck page:

Xmas may have been X’ed back in September when Self Entitled dropped, but given that this is the last Christmas, we thought we should spoil you with one last NOFX limited edition vinyl release. It’s the third single of the year from NOFX, and a double A-side at that: Xmas Has Been X’ed / New Year’s Revolution. The A-side is classic NOFX, a true punk rock Christmas anthem to be filed right next to Fear’s Fuck Christmas. And in typical NOFX fashion, it’s a Christmas story wherein the Jews come out on top. Shocker. Now flip the record over to the AA-side and you’ve got your “New Year’s Revolution,” an outtake from the Self Entitled sessions, followed by a new recording of the much-loved but overlooked gem “Wore out the Soles of My Party Boots.” If you pre-order now, you’ll get the digital copy delivered to you on December 25th, but you gotta wait til the new year to get your vinyl mailed to you. Check the killer original art for both sides below, and pre-order it today!

Bad Religion members talk about new album 'True North'


Preeminent punk band Bad Religion will release their new album 'True North' this January 22nd on Epitaph Records. In a world still brimming with rampant anti intellectualism, inequality and oppression, the band’s signature brand of sonically charged humanist dissent seems as relevant as ever. On their newest record, the storied band deliberately revisits and refines the powerful and melodic Southern California sound they helped to define.

“We went back to our original mission statement of short concise bursts of melody and thought,” co-songwriter and guitarist Brett Gurewitz explains. “The intent was to record stripped down punk songs without sacrificing any conceptual density.”

Info: 
Blasting out of a dirty basement’s rehearsal room there comes the straight forward punkrock sound of Austria’s very own Astpai. Think of None More Black meets Angus Young meets Dan Yemin, never lacking a sense in melody and sing-a-longs. This heavy rocking Hardcore/Punk sound comes along with both very personal as well as political views and offers some new ideas without just presenting shallow paroles and drained statements.

New Half Hearted Hero album entitled 'Whatever' to be released this January



We're pleased to once again work with Half Hearted Hero on their new record "Whatever" due out January 15, 2013 on 12" vinyl / digital. The 8 track release was recorded and mixed by Half Hearted Hero guitarist Clinton Lisboa and Ben Barnett and mastered by Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane, Have Heart, Transit, Title Fight).

"Whatever" is the follow up to 2010's EP "Running Water" and signifies a slight departure from the band's previous material but should continue to please fans of old and new, "In the past we've tried too hard to corner album lyrics into one theme and it usually ends up falling flat," AJ Mills, guitarist, said, "Maybe that's what this album is about. I think it's less about finding the right thing to say and instead saying how you feel."  


The band are planning a ten day tour in January leading up to the record's release.
