News Bits & Pieces

Tim Barry will release his new album ‘High On 95‘ this Friday through Chunksaah Records.

A video clip for the title track, shot by his daughter is now online to check out ahead of the album’s release. Take a look below.

Right now, Tim Barry is detoxing. Not from drugs or alcohol, but from his own music.

When the record’s finally done, and the master is approved, I erase every file that’s been sent to me and I throw out all the CDs with all of the rough mixes. I get rid of everything.

And that’s exactly where he’s at, in the home stretch of cleanse from his own work. But on September 8, he’ll sit down with his new record one last time. And like everyone else listening to it that day, it’ll be for the first time.

I generally never listen to the record again except one time on the day it comes out. That’s when I actually hear the record from the perspective of the people who are into it.

Pre-orders for the album on Vinyl & CD are available from Chunksaah [Here]. It will also be available on all digital outlets on Friday.

Frank Iero and the Patience will release a new EP, ‘Keep The Coffins Coming,‘ on September 22nd via BMG / Vagrant Records.

Recorded with Steve Albini, ‘Keep The Coffins Coming‘ will feature four tracks that bridge the gap between ‘Stomachaches‘ and ‘Parachutes‘, the band’s acclaimed debut and second albums.

When we were done touring Stomachaches, I talked to my manager, Paul, about what we should do. I had my bucket list and one of the things on there was to work with Steve Albini. Paul asked how long I’d wanted to work with Steve and I was like, ‘Since I was, like, 11!’ I wanted to make a Steve Albini record! Paul said he’d call him and I was like, ‘You can’t do that… that would be weird. Don’t do it.’ And he was like, ‘That’s my job!’ He called him, Steve said he could do it and he had three days. Next phone call I made was U-Haul; I fuckin’ packed the U-Haul up and drove the band to Chicago. I got to record an EP with my friends and one of my heroes in this, like, giant firehouse building in Chicago. The EP is this missing link between Stomachaches and Parachutes. It’s everything I wanted it to be. It’s fuckin’ awesome!

On the upcoming EP, fans may notice a name change on the cover art. For this release, the band will jokingly refer to themselves as Frank Iero and the Patients in light of their accident in Sydney last year.

Hailing from sleepy regional NSW come Rumours with the first taste of new material, ‘Lost Together‘.

Since conception, Rumours have been sharing stages with Northlane, Make Them Suffer, Hands Like Houses and Dream On Dreamer, on the back of the release of their debut EP ‘The View From Here‘.

A first taste of the things to come, ‘Lost Together‘ receives a fitting visual accompaniment thanks to Heidrich Films, shot in the band’s hometown of Wagga Wagga it is a cold story of love, loss and despair.

Watch the video below. Catch the band at The Bass Bar in Wagga Wagga on September 22nd, The Basement in Canberra on September 23rd, Bang! in Melbourne on September 30th and Enigma Bar in Adelaide on October 1st.

Emmer Effer is set to release their debut full-length album, ‘From The Bottom Down‘, via Felony Records on October 6th.

A music video for the track ‘Two Timer‘ can be viewed below.

Emmer Effer is a four-piece punk band from Los Angeles, California. Three members of the band were raised on South Bay punk rock, while Jake the drummer was raised on the punk sounds of the Pacific Northwest. This meshing of styles has resulted in a straight forward punk sound that is fast and to the point. Most songs are purposely kept under two minutes and guitar solos will not be found.

Founded in 2012, the band released their first EP, ‘Dead Men Tell No Lies‘, digitally on their own Emmer Effer Records in 2013. In 2016, Felony Records signed the band and released an EP on vinyl called ‘The People Are The Answer‘.
