From the ol’ inbox:
Tiny Engines is beyond excited to announce the sophomore release from Philadelphia, PA’s Beach Slang. Following quickly on the heels of their breakthrough debut, the band went right back to the studio in late June to record Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street, a new 4 song 7″, due out this Fall on Tiny Engines. Official digital release is 9/30/14. Official physical release is 10/28/14.
The band will be hitting the road with Modern Baseball and I Am The Avalanche in September. Those dates are listed below. The band will also be playing The Fest in Gainesville. More October and November tour dates to be announced soon!
Beach Slang have been the talk of the scene this year making a big splash with their powerful debut EP, Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken?. A supergroup of sorts, featuring James Snyder of Weston, JP Flexner of Ex-Friends and Ed McNulty, formerly of Nona, currently of Crybaby, Beach Slang’s seamless mix of indie, emo and pop/punk is the perfect punk rock soundtrack.

Baltimore’s salty hardcore heroes Old Lines have revealed plans to release their full-length album, No Child Left Behind, on October 14th via No Sleep Records. The band has also premiered a new song called “Traps” today with AVClub.com. (click here)
It’s only fitting that Old Lines live on the doorstep to the nation’s capital. The band’s vehement disdain for political and social corruption is the fuel that feeds the band’s molotov cocktail of hardcore, crust punk, doom and powerviolence. And on their latest effort, No Child Left Behind, Old Lines leave no stone unturned, from politicians to the environment, as they rip and shred their way through eleven tracks of pure frustration and aggression.
“This record in general is about somewhat taking the focus away from corporations and the lawmakers that support them, and instead taking responsibility for our own part in letting them do it,” says vocalist Matt Taylor. “As long as people remain silent and apathetic to what’s happening around them, these issues will multiply, and the repercussions will become more severe for the earth and everything on it. In 2014, we don’t have the luxury of ignorance anymore.”
Apathetic behavior is a theme that runs throughout the new record, including on the band’s new track “Traps.” The song puts society on blast for turning a blind eye for so long to the destruction of our planet and the resulting changes in climate.
“Traps is a song about how we all are responsible for the state our environment is in, and (more specifically) our collective regret that these issues have reached such a catastrophic degree,” Taylor adds. “We’ve ignored countless warnings from scientists all over the world for the sake of our own personal convenience. Only now, as the damage is becoming more visceral and the earth as we know it is in a tailspin, are people starting to admit that issues such as global climate change have real consequences and demand attention. However it’s all just a little too late. We set the traps ourselves, and now we’re crying that we’re caught in them.”
No Child Left Behind Track List:
1. To Ashes
2. Cold Teeth
4. Remote Controlled
5. The Hunt(ed)
6. Paint Them In Gold
7. All Locks Have Keys
9. The Quick Sales
10. War Is Declared
11. Plastic Coffins

03. Harbor (BBC Live Version)
04. Non Fiction (BBC Live Version
Also on September 30th, Touché Amoré will re-press the TA/Title Fight split 7″ EP on Secret Voice Records. This EP was originally released via Sealegs as a Record Store Day 2013 exclusive, and features Touché Amoré covering Title Fight‘s “Crescent-Shaped Depression” while Title Fight covers Touche Amore‘s “Face Ghost”.
Coming right off their recently-released Deluxe Reissue, a twenty song collection featuring their classic self titled debut album (out of print since 2006) paired with eight essential bonus tracks from their primordial years, Coliseum are premiering a video for the song “Detached”. Video was directed by Joe Watson.
The Muffs have premiered the video for “Weird Boy Next Door” off their newest album, Whoop Dee Doo.
Ontario’s Single Mothers are ready to unleash their full-length debut album on to the world. Negative Qualities is slated to be released on October 7th via XL Recordings and Dine Alone Records. Pre-orders for the LP can be had here.
In the meantime, the group has released the first track off the LP. Titled “Marbles”, the new song has the group pushing the boundaries of their style of breakneck speed punk. It’s all over the place loudness and oozing with a snottiness deeply grounded in their warped sense of humor.
Single Mothers shouldn’t exist and neither should their debut album, Negative Qualities. Led by mercurial troubadour Drew Thomson, the band was shakily hatched in London, Ontario where it ran through a dozen members before finally recording its debut album last year. At 10 songs, Negative Qualities serves as the perfect introduction to one of Canada’s most ferocious young bands – an explosive mix of raw energy, high-end punk and intellectual rendering of small town frustration.

There is no slowing down Code Orange. The Pittsburgh hardcore group are in high gear for the impending release of their second full-length I Am King due out on September 2nd via Deathwish Inc. As a follow-up for the oh-so disturbing video for “I Am King”, the group is now premiering “Dreams In Inertia”. As directed by Max Moore, the video finds the band tackling some more perverse and dark imagery and visuals and contains a feel for a horror B-movie. Musically, “Dreams In Inertia” has Code Orange slowing down their usual frantic and spastic pace and heading into a groove-oriented heaviness in rhythm.
I Am King is already looking and sounding to be a next-level evolution in what can and is aggressive and heavy music at the hands of Code Orange.
On Wednesdays, we watch videos. Keeping up with that tradition, we bring you Youth Code performing “First & Last” for the Converse Red Light Sessions. Filmed live at this year’s SXSW, it’s evident that Youth Code are one of the best strictly BPM industrial groups out there right now.
Indie pop group Kittyhawk recently did a few songs live at Little Elephant. As with all previous performers and bands, the music was recorded and filmed live. In one the sessions, Kittyhawk performed a new song, “The Petravicz Estate”, from their upcoming new album Hello, Again due out October 14th via Count Your Lucky Stars.
If “The Petravicz Estate” is any indication, then new the album will be a little more crunchy in guitar sound while still maintaining that deep sense of melody that Kittyhawk pulls off so perfectly. We’re definitely looking forward to the new record.
