More pictures, including a couple of opening band, Continental, and more tour dates, are below.

Government Warning
Government Warning

Tons of great hardcore and punk shows in the coming months!

Richmond hardcore rippers Government Warning will hit the road for a string of dates with Night Birds in late February, hitting NYC for a pair of shows on Feb 19th. The day of old-school hardcore madness begins at an early show at Cake Shop (5PM) with Perdition and Ex-Humans and continues into the wee hours at a late show (11PM) with 0megas at 538 Johnson, # 201. Full tour dates are below.

As previously mentioned, 108 teams up with Ensign, Incendiary, and Torchbearer at Cake Shop at 3PM on Saturday (1/08, yeah I know). Tickets are still available, but this 21+ show WILL sell out. As a result, 108 has added a second ALL AGES show at Death By Audio with Primitive Weapons, Heavy Breath and Black Kites that will kick off at 9PM. No advance tickets, and $10 gets you in.

And now for all of you who missed them on their first go around, you're in luck. Tear It Up have reunited and will play Europa on March 25th with Last in Line & The Cell Mates.

Since forming out of the ashes of Dead Nation in 2000, Tear It Up has become a mainstay of the American DIY hardcore scene. Their aggressive fast hardcore sound and intense live performance won over legions of fans from the start. Tear It Up toured the US and Europe constantly, and when not on tour still played as many as 4 shows a week anywhere within a days drive of their native New Jersey. Tear It Up survived several line up changes most notably Paul went on to form Cut the Shit and John was drafted from Down in Flames. Tear It Up broke up shortly before [their final record Taking You Down With Me] was released... Let it be known that Tear It Up went out at the top and never put out a weak record or put or a lame half hearted show.
Tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale.

Most Precious Blood are back, and will play Cake Shop on January 30th with Suburban Scum & Spectators. Advance tickets are available now.

The previously discussed 'Steve Ignorant plays Crass' show at Santos Party House on March 10 has added Leftover Crack and Thulsa Doom to it's ranks. Tickets are still available. Leftover Crack played Music Hall of Williamsburg on the day after Christmas 2010, but not with Bouncing Souls in Asbury Park that same week.

Reverend Horton Heat has a pretty impressive set of tour dates laid out for the first half of the year, and one of thise is scheduled for The Bell House on May 6th. Tickets are on sale. Full tour schedule is below.

Though Stiff Little Fingers still exists as a band, original guitar player Harry Cluney will play Europa to perform "Stiff Little Fingers Classics" on Feb 11th. Tickets are on sale.

Supertouch has reunited, and will play Santos on Feb 12th with Sweet Diesel. The show originally had 1.6 Band on the bill, but they have since been removed. Tickets are on sale.

Reagan Youth will team up with Yuppicide, Beer & Cable, and Agitator to play Europa on January 23rd. Tickets are on sale.

The Brooklyn venue will also host a monsterous hardcore lineup two months later featuring Urban Waste, Ultra Violence, Step 2 Far, Down Low NYHC, Darkside NYC, Kincaid, Fed Up, Caught In A Trap, Chesty Malone & The Slice Em Up's, Not Without A Fight, Sexual Suicide, Olde York, and Yo Scunt. The March 26th show will begin at 1PM and tickets are on sale.

Tour dates and some video below...

"Ah Lemmy, I ain't gonna be as sprightly as you are when I hit 63 (didja know he's only 5 years younger than Dylan?)" - Jason Gross


For a couple of weeks during Motörhead's U.S. headlining tour, the band's long-time basher of skins, drummer Mikkey Dee, will be filming season one of Kändisdjungeln, Sweden's version of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Of Here! where ten celebrities live together in the Malaysian jungle for 16 days. They are being watched by cameras 24/7 and the viewers will decide which celebrity will have to take on crazy and challenging contests. The contests will consist of everything from facing scary bugs to frightening heights. If the celebrities can overcome their phobias and fears, they can bring back food or other needed things to the jungle camp. Finally, the viewers will decide which celebrity will be the winner.

"I can't wait to see that," chuckles Lemmy to Canada's Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles. "He's in the Malaysian jungle, and he doesn't like bugs. And I think they have to be parachuted into the f**king thing - and he doesn't like heights either. So it's definitely going to be worth watching." Mikkey had agreed to do the TV show before the tour was booked. Says Lemmy, "I think he's already had the f**king shots, the anti-tropical disease shots."

But the tour will go on.

Velvet Revolver drummer, Matt Sorum, got the call from Lemmy and will fill in during Mikkey's absence. Formerly of Guns N' Roses and The Cult, Matt is a world-class musician. He and Lemmy have been friends since they toured together when Motörhead performed some dates with GN'R and Metallica years ago. Matt will come out to a few of the early tour dates to "watch Mikkey and get the idea," says Lem. "He'll be alright, he's a professional." [All Access Magazine]

Matt Sorum was the drummer at last night's Motorhead show at Roseland Ballroom in NYC which had almost as many bands on the bill (4) as the number of dollars some people paid for tickets (5). Opening acts at the 9/9/9 show were Reverend Horton Heat, Nashville Pussy, and The Episodes who come from Ohio and have some members that aren't old enough to drive yet. More pictures, and a few more words about the show, below...

Black Anvil are playing a free show at Duff's TONIGHT (6/27).

Asphyx's Death... The Brutal Way is out now overseas, but the LP will drop on Ibex Moon in the US on September 1.
