Code Orange Kids at Acheron, Nov. 2011 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
You'd never guess it, but Code Orange Kids have almost gone goth with their new track "VI (Worms Fear God // God Fears Youth)", part of a four-way split with Tigers Jaw, The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die and Self Defense Family due tomorrow (4/23) via Run For Cover/Topshelf Records. Opening with a shimmering guitar riff, buried clean vocals and reverb galore, the song opens up into something darker/more sinister as the track progresses. Stream it below, and order your copy on digital/7" via Bandcamp or one of the labels (Top Shelf, Run for Cover).
COK have a limited number of US dates scheduled so far, but will hit The Studio at Webster Hall on May 18 & 19 as part of the Anti-Flag 20th Anniversary celebration. COK will join Hostage Calm and Worlds Scariest Police Chases on 5/18; with 5/19 featuring This is Hell, Luther and Worship This! Tickets are on sale for both nights as a package or individual shows (May 18 HERE, May 19 HERE). The band will also appear at Scion Rock Fest in addition to other dates.
All shows and that new song is below.
The Fest is back for round 11 (!) adding bands from across the spectrum of punk rock for the multi-day Gainesville, Florida extravaganza. The Fest announced its initial lineup earlier this month but has doubled that number, bringing the total tally to a whopping 217, and there are more to go! The lineup includes Lagwagon, Naked Raygun, Baroness, Red Fang, Off with Their Heads, Torche, Valient Thorr, 7 Seconds, F.Y.P., Braid, Titus Andronicus, Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland, Frank Turner and many more (see below). Tickets are now on sale (and sold out quick last year).
Full lineup is below, expect to see some surprises at The Fest as well; Sleepytime Trio reunited there last year.

Hot Water Music
Chuck Ragan (of Hot Water Music) is taking The Revival Tour 2012 across the US and Canada this March and April. Like past Revival Tours, the shows feature a number of singers (usually of the punk scene) and their acoustic instruments collaborating on stage in a traditional folk music fashion. This year's tour hits NYC on March 30 at Bowery Ballroom, and in addition to Chuck Ragan, features Dan Andriano (of Alkaline Trio), Tommy Gabel (of Against Me!), and Lucero-associate Cory Branan. Tickets go on sale Saturday (2/4) at noon. The Revival tour also has ticket bundle options available with tour samplers, vinyls, posters, and more.
Nathaniel Rateliff, who released his debut album back in 2010, is on a number of the dates too, but unfortunately will not play at the Bowery Ballroom show. However, he will play in NYC one day before that show as part of the Communion-presented "Austin to Boston" tour, which kicks off at this year's SXSW in Austin. That tour hits Mercury Lounge on March 29 and also includes Ben Howard, The Staves, and Bear's Den. Tickets are on sale now.
Chuck Ragan's band Hot Water Music, who have been reunited since 2008, have announced that they're working on their first new album since the reunion and since 2004's The New What Next. They've been recording the album with Bill Stevenson (Descendents) and it should see the light of day this May on Rise Records, the label they signed to over the summer. Hot Water Music released the single "The Fire, The Steel, The Tread," b/w "Up to Nothing" in September of 2011. There's no word of whether or not these songs will appear on the new album, but you can stream them both below.
Hot Water Music have a few shows scheduled in 2012 including Bamboozle in Asbury Park, NJ and SXSW. Single day passes for 5/19 when HWM plays Bamboozle, along with The Promise Ring, A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, and others, are on sale now. HWM doesn't have many other shows announced at the moment but maybe they'll schedule a NYC show when they're in the area for Bamboozle like The Promise Ring did.
All dates, streams, and tour fliers below...
When we first mentioned the lineup for this year's Bamboozle, which is taking place from May 18-20 in Asbury Park, NJ, it only included Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, Skrillex, Blink 182, Incubus, and Mac Miller. The generally lame festival has since revealed more artists including a surprising number of not-lame artists like the reunited Promise Ring (their first East Coast date announced, hopefully an NYC show to come?), Hot Water Music, Bouncing Souls, A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, and Murphy's Law. Take that, Warped Tour.
Tickets for Bamboozle are on sale now. Updated lineup below...
NOFX at Bonnaroo (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
The Bouncing Souls ended their 4-night run at Highline Ballroom last night (7/9). They played all 8 of their albums over the course of the four nights in NYC. A full report and pictures are coming soon. If you missed it, the Souls will now do the same for Philly starting on July 13th. Tickets are still on sale for one of the nights. They also do it in London, Vienna, Denver, and LA. LA tickets go on sale... in September. Bouncing Souls have also added some new US dates in October before the Denver and LA runs too, including a few shows with NOFX.
The NOFX shows are part of a longer North American tour that NOFX headlines in October with Anti-Flag and Old Man Markley. That tour includes two nights at Irving Plaza, 10/7 & 10/8. Tickets for both shows are on sale now. NOFX also tour Europe in August.
Speaking of Los Angeles punk bands playing 2 nights at Irving Plaza, as previously mentioned, X are doing that too. They will head out on tour in September and October, playing "Los Angeles" in full at each show along the way. As previously mentioned that includes Riot Fest East in Philly, Riot Fest in Chicago and two nights at Irving Plaza in NYC. But it also includes September 25th in Asbury Park, NJ and a bunch of other dates which are listed below. Tickets are available for the two NYC shows and the NJ show.
X released "Los Angeles" in 1980. Seven years later the Dave Alvin-written song "Fourth of July" appeared on their album "See How We Are" (which was reissued in 2002). Grab that song, and a recently made cover of it (in honor of last week's holiday), above.
In somewhat related news, Kid Dynamite will, as mentioned, reunite at FYF Fest in LA with Descendents, The Dead Milkmen and many others this September. While we await another east coast reunion, Kid Dynamite frontman Jason Chevchuk's other band None More Black will play some shows to tide us over. They'll play on October 25 at Knitting Factory Brooklyn and November 2 at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, NJ. Dig It Up, TheCore and Polygon open both shows as part of a tour down to the Fest 10. Tickets for the Knitting Factory show are on sale now.
To bring things full circle, TheCore covered The Bouncing Souls "True Believers" with Chuck Ragan at their show together on February 26 in Las Vegas. Video of that and all tour dates and other videos below....
Evan Dando at The Bell House (more by Graeme Flegenheimer)
Evan Dando & The Lemonheads have a few random upcoming dates scheduled. The Lemonheads will share a bill with The Canon Logic on April 28th at Maxwell's in Hoboken. Tickets are still available. You can also catch Josh Lattanzi of The Lemonheads at Bowery Ballroom on May 26 & 27 as part of the Bob Dylan tribute that will also include members of the Strokes, Hold Steady, etc, etc.
All other upcoming Evan Dando dates are in other countries at the moment, including a June 16th Evan & Juliana Hatfield show in Toronto for the NXNE festival which, like Brooklyn's own multi-venue festival Northside, recently expanded its lineup. Some of the other bands playing are in the title of this post. The rest are listed below.
All Dando-related dates and some videos below too...
"Little 7 yr. old Stella Connelly with the help of songwriter performer "Hoop the Last Folk Singer" is sending an important message to everyone this Earth Day 2010. Earth day is every day! The message is passed along through the new song "Earth Day Everyday". The song was recorded by Stella Connelly and reggae recording artist Carlos Jones and First Light."I don't fully know what that means, but it's the bio that goes along with Stella Connelly who, along with Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, The London Souls, and many more, are performing as part of the Eary Day celebration at Grand Central in NYC on Friday and Saturday. The full schedule and more details below...
Stza of SFH, at Gramercy with Leftover Crack (more by Justina Villanueva)
Star Fucking Hipsters is a ska-punk/crust punk/Indie band that was started by Leftöver Crack's vocalist Stza and [then] drummer Brandon as a side project.. Unfortunately, Brandon died before the band was fully formed. However, Stza continued and... the band started playing shows in the New York City area early in August 2005.... Their debut album was released by Fat Wreck Chords on September 30, 2008, entitled "Until We're Dead". -[Wiki]Star Fucking Hipsters have a new slab of tunes out on Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles label. Dig on a pair of tracks from that release, Never Rest in Peace, above.
The NYC band will hit the road for a string of dates with Anti-Flag, Cancer Bats and Aiden as part of "The Economy Sucks, Let's Party" Tour. Look for that to hit NYC at Highline Ballroom on 2/4/10. Tickets are on sale. Prediction: bottle service and the Highline Ballroom kitchen will not do well that night. The tour hits Starland Ballroom one day later. Tickets are on sale for that too.
