Banner Pilot
Banner Pilot

Minneapolis punks Banner Pilot recently put out their new album, Souvenir, via Fat Wreck Chords. In their own words, "We sound a little like Jawbreaker, Lawrence Arms, Dillinger Four, and other bands like that," so one's trying to reinvent the wheel here, but if you're looking for more stuff like that Banner Pilot's got it. They're on tour now and will hit NYC on May 24 at Knitting Factory with local bands Sad & French and The Jukebox Romantics. Tickets are on sale now. Stream a track from the new album, with their list of dates, below.

Speaking of modern Fat Wreck Chords bands devoted to sounding like older ones, Masked Intruder (who literally perform masked) are touring with their former Red Scare labelmates Direct Hit! and directly hitting NYC on June 25 at The Studio at Webster Hall with The Priceduifkes. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Yet another Fat band, The Flatliners, will team up with melodic hardcore vets A Wilhelm Scream in NYC on July 12 at the Marlin Room at Webster Hall. Local pop punk faves Chumped are on that show too, as well as A Balance Between. Tickets are on sale.

As discussed, Gainesville's The Fest is returning this year from October 31 to November 3, and they've just expanded their lineup to include more artists. Additions includes post-hardcore/screamo giants Circle Takes The Square, who have been reunited for a bit but still only rarely play US shows; Geoff Rickly's United Nations, who are also back, but have not been as active as Geoff's solo project; punk vets ALL; Titus Andronicus (who have multiple NYC-area appearances coming up); Fake Problems and more.

Those recent additions join previously announced names like Torche, White Lung, Bouncing Souls, Ceremony, Braid, Paint It Black, Samiam, Knapsack (reunion), The Draft (reunion), The Menzingers, The Lawrence Arms, Hop Along, Code Orange Kids, Creative Adult, Pity Sex, Mean Jeans, Retox, Lemuria, Greys, Tenement, Tim Barry, Toys That Kill, The Night Marchers and more. Tickets for The Fest are on sale now.

Circle Takes The Square returned in December, 2012 with Decompositions Volume Number One, their first album of new material since reuniting and second overall. It's not the instant masterpiece that their 2004 debut, As the Roots Undo, is, but it's still damn good. Download it in its entirety at bandcamp (name your price) or stream it in its entirety, along with the updated The Fest lineup, below.

Danzig

We previously discussed Phily's Riot Fest East that will feature an appearance from the mighty Descendents and The Suicide Machines who they also play with in NYC. Riot Fest East, an offshoot of the Chicago festival, happens on September 24th.

The Chicago version of the festival, October 5-9, previously announced that Weezer, Social Distortion, Descendents, 7 Seconds, ALL (two different eras!), Helmet, and X (playing Los Angeles) were all on the lineup, but left one big announcement for today...

On Friday October 7, 2011 Danzig will headline Riot Fest and perform a career spanning show featuring sets of Danzig, Samhain and Misfits songs with none other than Doyle joining on guitar the Misfits set. We've waited years for this and we can't wait to see the inside of the Congress Theater turn into a churning sea of humanity.
Tickets for both Riot Fest Chicago and Riot Fest East are now on sale, and more band announcements are stil to come(!).

Tickets are now also on sale for the Descendents show at Roseland Ballroom that Suicide Machines and H20 are opening.

X are performing Los Angeles at both Riot Fests AND on two nights at Irving Plaza in NYC. Tickets are on sale for those shows too.

Riot Fest show flyers and some videos is below.
