Emo vets Sunny Day Real Estate haven't released any new music since their 2000 LP, The Rising Tide, and they've been pretty quiet since reuniting in 2009, but we'll finally get to hear the first new SDRE song in 14 years this Record Store Day (4/19). The song, titled "Lipton Witch," will come out on a split 7" with Circa Survive. That's the artwork above, by Chris Thompson, who also designed 1998's How It Feels to Be Something On.
SDRE aren't the only veteran emo band to announce long-awaited new material though. The Jazz June, who reunited at CMJ 2013, will put out their first song since 2002's Better Off Without Air this year too. Their song, titled "Over Underground," comes out on a split 7" with Dikembe this May via Tiny Engines/Topshelf. The Jazz June's only upcoming date at the moment is in Philly on 4/12 (tickets).
Both of these announcements also come only days after The Van Pelt announced they'd be digging up unreleased material for Record Store Day as well.

Jason Shevchuck w/ Kid Dynamite at House of Vans (more by David Andrako)
Producer Will Yip has become a go-to guy in the punk scene, sitting behind the boards for Title Fight, Balance & Composure, Pity Sex, Sainthood Reps, Citizen and many others, and on October 8, he'll release a compilation titled Off The Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation (pre-order) with previously unreleased songs from those artists and a number of others he's worked with. Proceeds from the album will go towards funding his partnership at Studio 4.
One of the songs on the compilation, which makes its premiere in this post, is "That Thing That Separates Em," the first new song in years by None More Black, the band fronted by Jason Shevchuk of the once-again defunct Kid Dynamite. Check it out, in all its scrappy punk glory, along with the comp's album art and tracklist, below.

Minus the Bear at Webster Hall in 2010 (more by Matthew Eisman)
Minus the Bear released their most recent album, Infinity Overhead, last year and they're continuing to tour in support of it this year with Circa Survive and Now, Now (who have other upcoming dates including a NYC show with Bob Mould). That tour doesn't exactly hit NYC but it will be in the area for shows at Poughkeepsie's The Chance on March 17 and Long Island's The Paramount on March 19. Tickets for the Paramount show go on venue presale today (1/17) at 10 AM (password: "PULSE") and general on-sale starts Friday (1/18) at noon. There's also a presale for the whole tour available at Minus the Bear/Circa Survive's wavesoverhead.com but the two NYC area presales are sold out.
Minus the Bear also just performed on Live from Daryl's House, the web-to-cable series of Daryl Hall (as in, Daryl from Hall & Oates). They hung out with Daryl, did some interviews, cooked, ate dinner, and played some songs while they were at it too. You can video from that below and check out footage of the entire event HERE.

Steve of Torche, riding the (fat) waves (more by Justina Villanueva)
Over the coming weeks, we'll be announcing details of some of our (many) day & night shows happening in Austin during SXSW this year. Emo's on March 17th is the first of these shows, and mark my words, it will be utter pandemonium. Proof? The first announcement of more than twelve bands slated for the free gig is Torche. Stay tuned for more announcements, but until then, save the date.
Later that night we move over to Club DeVille for an official showcase featuring Serena Maneesh, Califone and more TBA. Then on Friday, we've also just revealed, that we'll be hanging out at Club DeVille again for another day party with Lucero and many more TBA there too.
The Wednesday BV Day Party is one of a handful of Austin dates for Torche before the band takes a breather, only to reignite for a string of dates with Coheed & Cambria and Circa Survive that include May 26th at Rumsey Playfield (aka Central Park Summerstage). Ticket info is forthcoming.
In related news, Torche will team up with Boris to domestically release Chapter Ahead Of Being Fake for Hydrahead. No word on an exact release date. Torche's Steve Brooks is getting his old band Floor back together. Robotic Empire will release a mega-mega-mega boxset for the band. Preorder it here.
A new-ish video for "King Beef" and full Torche dates are below.
