The tracks keep coming the highly anticipated sophomore album from United Nations, The Next Four Years (due 7/15 via Temporary Residence Ltd). You've already heard "Serious Business" and "Meanwhile on Main St" and the band have now unleashed a third, "United Nations vs United Nations." When I saw UN play this song at 285 Kent last year, singer Geoff Rickly introduced it by saying that the other United Nations sued them over their name, and said he thinks it's really easy for people with money and power to push around people without money and power, so they did a little pushing back. Hence, "United Nations vs United Nations." Check it out below.

United Nations' tour with Frameworks hits NYC on August 2 at Saint Vitus with Descender and Pagan Girls. Tickets for that show are still available.

United Nations isn't the only thing Geoff Rickly has been up to lately though. The former Thursday frontman also recently re-launched his label, Collect Records. The label was already responsible for releasing the first Touche Amore album (with 6131) and the first United Nations album (with Eyeball), and currently has new 7" releases planned from Touche Amore, Title Fight, Saves the Day and more.

Collect also just released the a-side of the new single from No Devotion, aka the new band of Geoff Rickly (vocals) plus the members of Lostprophets (you may know that Lostprophets' singer is in jail for some unspeakable crimes). The single will be out July 22 but you can now stream "Stay," a track more akin to arena goth than United Nations' searing hardcore. Check it out below.

For those keeping score, Geoff also fronts Strangelight with members of Made Out of Babies, and has a softer solo project.

You really think those guys wrote and recorded music, hung out socially, shared a tour bus and hotel rooms touring the world for like 15 + years and had NO IDEA their lead singer was a BABY RAPIST? I bet Sandusky's wife was tottttttally in the dark too, right?
