Minnesota emo/pop punk band Remo Drive released their debut album Greatest Hits last year, and they've now signed to Epitaph, who have released the album on vinyl, CD, and digital platforms. They've also announced a new release for the label, the Pop Music EP, which drops on March 9. The lead single off Pop Music is "Blue Ribbon," which is a nice dose of indie rock/pop punk crossover that fans of Joyce Manor and PUP might dig. Listen and check out the EP tracklist below. You can pick up Greatest Hits and pre-order Pop Music here.

As mentioned, Remo Drive are playing Bunbury Music Fest (with Jack White, blink-182, Dropkick Murphys, Third Eye Blind, Coheed & Cambria, Manchester Orchestra, The Front Bottoms, and more) and also touring with Sorority Noise. The tour with Sorority Noise includes a leg with Jelani Sei that hits Asbury Park's House of Independents on April 1 with additional support from Animal Flag (tickets) and NYC's Bowery Ballroom on April 5 (tickets). All Remo Drive dates are listed below.

Sorority Noise

Speaking of Sorority Noise, they just announced an acoustic re-imagining of their 2017 Triple Crown debut You're Not As _____ As You Think. It's called YNA_AYT, and it will be out on March 16, and part of the proceeds go to the JED Foundation, which "works with teens and young adults to prevent suicide and protect emotional health." Singer Cameron Boucher says, "We got together in the summer of 2017 and rearranged You’re Not As ______ As You Think with strings (performed and arranged by the brilliant Michael Underwood) as well as other instrumentation to evoke a different perspective for the songs and record as a whole." This version of the album replaces "Where Are You?" with an absolutely gorgeous cover of Leonard Cohen's "Chelsea Hotel No. 2" and replaces "New Room" with a new song called "Windowwww." You can listen to the Leonard Cohen cover below.
