Yours for only $136.
Likewise, Rancid are celebrating their 20th anniversary by releasing their entire discography as a huge box of 7"s. Pre-orders began today.
To quote Merge Records, "You're Living All Over Me by Dinosaur Jr., the groundbreaking album from the masters of alt-guitar rock, turns 25 this fall. To celebrate, Merge Records is releasing Chocomel Daze, a rare live show (featuring the classic, original line-up of J, Lou, and Murph) recorded in 1987 at Dorrnroosje, Nijmegen, Netherlands. Limited edition on 150-gram vinyl for the first time, this release follows their recent I Bet on Sky." Listen to one of the tracks at the bottom of this post.

Highly influential streetpunk band Sham 69 will reunite their 'classic' 1977-1979 lineup (or at least most of it) to play a pair of US shows including Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas and Chaos in Tejas Austin. The 1977-1979 lineup is:
Jimmy Pursey: vocalsThis lineup, also known as the Pursey/Parsons lineup (which may or may not have Mark Cain on drums this time around), is not to be confused with the version of the band led by Tim V (otherwise known as the Tim V lineup) (that's Tim V, Neil Harris, Ian Whitewood, Tony Feedback, and Al Campbell). The Tim V lineup operates out of Sham69.com, and both versions are currently playing live.
Dave Parsons: guitar
Dave Tregunna: bass
Mark Cain: drums
Sham 69 (Pursey/Parsons lineup) joins names like Rancid, NOFX, Pennywise, The Adicts, Youth of Today, Street Dogs, Toys That Kill, and many more for Punk Rock Bowling 2012 in Las Vegas, NV on May 25-28, 2012. The fest also features pool parties, a bowling tournament, late-night club and much more in addition to the outdoor festival appearances. Tickets go on sale soon.
Rancid also have some anniversary shows coming up with Cock Sparrer.
Youth of Today are also playing the Black N Blue Bowl this year in NYC with many other hardcore bands incluiding The Mob who also play Chaos in Tejas this year (May 31-June 3).
Sham 69 (Pursey/Parsons lineup) is one of many new additions to Chaos in Tejas which also added No Age, pygmylush, Screaming Females, Secret Prostitutes, Slug Guts (Australia), S U R V I V E, and Tenement. These additions are not to be confused with the set of bands that were announced earlier this week. Latest Chaos in Tejas lineup listed in full below.

Agnostic Front @ Santos Party House
Agnostic Front are currently out on tour with Mongoloids in support of a somewhat new record...
"My Life My Way was released on March 22, 2011. The album features 13 new powerful and anthemic songs laid down by Erik Rutan (MADBALL, GOATWHORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, etc.) at his Mana Recording Studio in Tampa, FL under the watchful guide of producer Freddy Cricien of MADBALL. The record was mastered by Alan Douches (NILE, MASTODON, etc.)."The tour hit Santos Party House in NYC on 11/4. Some pictures are in this post. More them with all remaining dates below.
Fellow DMS crew band H2O also has a new record coming out, but not of their own songs. As their own press release reads...
"H2O has been a mainstay in hardcore and punk since their inception back in 1995 and have had many influences along the way. The band is thrilled to pay homage to those influential artists by covering their songs on the forthcoming album, Don't Forget Your Roots, which will be available November 15th from Bridge Nine Records.No Agnostic Front on the tribute album, but there is Madball, Descendents, Bad Brains and many more. The full tracklist, all tour dates, and more Agnostic Front show pictures, below...
Additionally, H2O will be playing the Gramercy Theater on November 19th [with Killing Time], with a special set consisting of cover songs and originals- both new and old. This show will be a celebration of H2O's covers album available just three days prior, as well as a re-release of their self-titled album, available on LP also on November 15th. Vocalist Toby Morse had this to say: "NYC is H2O's roots - where we started - and couldn't think of a more perfect place to release our covers album and the re-issue of our first record. We'll be playing old songs, new songs and cover songs for our fans there! They'll also be able to pick up copies of our self-titled album on vinyl - Bridge Nine is re-pressing that and we couldn't be more excited. It was originally released back in 1996 and has been out of print for a long, long time. Also Don't Forget Your Roots will be available as well!" He continued, "Our covers album is a big personal accomplishment for us - being able to pay homage to the bands that have influenced us so much since we got into punk rock and helped get us where we are today is an amazing thing. We think we've done them justice!"
Yes, that is Rancid's Lars Fredriksen
Rancid's Tim Armstrong is putting on a musical theatre series, complete with dance numbers, singing and more costumes than a Lady Gaga concert... Tim Timebomb's RockNRoll Theater rivals anything currently showing on Broadway. Paying homage to classic American musicals, the series finds Rancid's main man leading a variety of actors and musicians through a string of suspenseful story lines. Each segment features extensive song and dance numbers, with frenzied tunes and rousing moves that are wrapped in a dark, sexy edge. Armstrong acts as host, guiding the audience through the shows; yes, Twilight Zone fans, our hero has been deemed a "punk rock Rod Serling"...Look for it on VEVO on 10/21. Or don't. Trailer is below.
"Dante," the first episode of Tim Timebomb's RockNRoll Theater, brings the 14th Century epic poem Dante's Inferno up to 21st Century speed with a new take on greed and corporate corruption. Starring AFI frontman Davey Havok, Rancid guitarist and vocalist Lars Frederiksen and CSI star Robert David Hall, this one provides a glimpse at just how fun this series is going to get. -[VEVO]
Matt & Kim @ ACL 2010 (more by Tim Griffin)
Who would have thought back in 2006 when Matt & Kim were rising through the ranks of the Todd P Brooklyn DIY scene that one day they'd be third on a three-band tour with Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance?
As you may have heard in a commercial playing in the backseat of a cab or elsewhere, Blink 182 are going on the "Honda Civic Tour" with My Chemical Romance. Openers for that tour, which vary by date, include Manchester Orchestra, Rancid, and.... Matt & Kim. Manchester is supporting the first leg of the tour which hits NJ's PNC Bank Arts Center on August 5 and Long Island's Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on August 6 and 7, though Manchester won't open the August 7 show, as they will be at Lollapalooza. A different opener is to be announced. Pre-sale tickets are on sale now, with a general sale starting Saturday (6/11) at 10 AM. Matt & Kim open most of the dates in September and October, as you can see below.
Maybe Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino, who covered "Dammit" (video below), will come out to one of the shows (thinking from her seat during the Brooklyn duo's opening set, "that should be me!"). Mark Hoppus loves Best Coast and also interviewed her boyfriend Wavves.
For now Bethany will have to be satisfied with her contributions to pop punk band New Found Glory. According to the band's website, "Today our friend Bethany from the band Best Coast came into the studio and sang vocals on one of our new songs! We are totally pumped to have her guest on our record."
Best Coast play a Planned Parenthood Benefit w/ Those Darlins at Le Poisson Rouge on June 16, two days after opening the sold out Decemberists show at Prospect Park (6/14). Tickets for the LPR show are still on sale.
Wavves open for Guided by Voices in McCarren Park on June 18th and has other dates scheduled too.
Meanwhile, Matt & Kim are on tour with The Thermals (Who ever thought the Thermals would go on tour with a band that would go on tour with Blink 182?) (though it is consistent with The Thermals' thing about always touring with bands that include at least one female member). Their Terminal 5 show together is sold out, but tickets are still on sale for the show The Thermals are headlining (without Matt & Kim) at The Bell House on July 1 with Big Troubles and (the female-fronted) EULA.

Rancid w/ Vinnie Stigma (Agnostic Front) @ BB Kings in 2006 (Hardcore Shutterbug)
Odd charges on my credit card bills. Unexplainable website visits. I must admit, I do have a secret love.
They are Rancid, punk godfathers to Hot Topic'ers and old faves to old school Op. Ivy fans like me. Tim, Matt, Lars and Brandon (Steineckert, original drummer Brett Reed departed the band in 2006) are currently working on a new album with Brett Gurewitz (of Bad Religion/Pres of Epitaph Records fame) that will come out later in the year. Their first in five years since 2003's Indestructible, it also marks the return of Brett Gurewitz to the boards for Rancid, previously producing Rancid (2000) and their near classic Let's Go.
Presumably to road test some of that new material, Rancid has scheduled a few shows, including a 5 night stay at the Fillmore @ Irving Plaza from 8/13 - 8/17. Ticket info currently unavailable.
Tour dates below, but keep it on the down-low.
