Virginia’s favorite sons Worn In Red are streaming a new track, titled “White Heavens Dark Daydreams,” which you can check out below. The track comes from Banshees, the bands upcoming No Idea Records sophomore release. While Banshees wont see an official release until August 7th, you can pre-order a copy from No Idea’s website.
Gainesville, FL’s Post Teens (members of Averkiou, Asshole Parade, Torche and Shitstorm) have announced a follow up to their 2011 debut S/T 7″ EP, entitled The Heat. The new 7″ will be out on June 5th, 2012 via their local No Idea Records.
Post Teens’ S/T 7″ on Sound Study Recordings made my “Best Of 2011″ list.
Hot Water Music will be releasing the Live In Chicago collection on September 27th via No Idea Records. The collection, available on 3xLP, 2xCD, and Digital, will compile all of the band’s out of print Live In Chicago 7″ series and a selection of the best tracks recorded those nights of February 1st & 2nd at The Metro.
Rewind to 2008. HOT WATER MUSIC shocks many by resurfacing for a string of reunion shows. Everyone was in a frenzy, shows sold out in record time, airline tickets were purchased and fans were ecstatic. No Idea Records got the crazy idea to record the shows to document the grand reunion. Turns out the results were amazing, so the label created a 7” series. Six volumes in total were made over 2010 and 2011. Each volume was limited to 1,000 copies and sold out immediately leaving many folks empty handed.
Enter the present. No Idea takes the best version of every song they played at The Metro in Chicago on February 1st & 2nd, 2008 and compiles them into one collection. The final product boasts a 30-song, 90-minute live journey through the band’s history in your choice of three formats.
Release Date: 9/27/11 via No Idea Records.
-3xLP, die-cut, wide-spine jacket with printed inner sleeves.
-Digital (First time available for any of the songs.)
Vinyl color variations will be announced on release date.

Tacoma, Washington’s Seaweed are set to release a new 7″ of newly-recorded songs this July. The band was mainly active in the 1990′s and lumped in with the grunge music movement of the time. Their sound was more akin to punk but with a dirtier rock sound. So I guess I can see how they would’ve sounded grunge. The band broke up in 2000 but reformed in 2007.
No Idea Record brings us this 7″ of two new tracks: “Service Deck” and “The Weight”. Get your pre-order on over at No Idea’s webstore here. Can’t wait to hear these new songs and see how the band has evolved in their sound.
Amherst, Massachusetts natives AMPERE are set to release a full length entitled Like Shadows via No Idea Records on June 7th. The full length comes in succession of a very lengthy discography already. Like Shadows will mark the band’s first release with Florida-based No Idea Records, and they’re going to fit right in. Continue reading for the full album tracklisting and the streaming tracks.
We’re probably a little late to the party but if you’re into Midwest-style hardcore, then you need to check out Black God. Comprised of Rob Pennington, Ryan Patterson, Nick Thieneman, and Ben Sears, Black God has a hardcore pedigree that would make most bands in the genre blush and just pack up their bags. The members have done their time in bands like Black Cross, Young Widows, Coliseum, Endpoint, By The Grace Of God, Breather Resist, and Mountain Asleep. Impressive, yes.
Black God delivers a style of hardcore and punk that is driving and in-your-face and harkens back a bit to the early days of D.C. hardcore with a foundation of deeply personal and open lyrics. If this does not get your attention, who knows what will. Oh yeah, they hail from Louisville, KY so you know it will rock your socks off!
Big Cheese Magazine is hosting a leak of another new Small Brown Bike song, entitled “Rescue Mission” from their upcoming Fell And Found. The record is the band’s first since 2003′s The River Bed, and the first with the original lineup since 1999′s Our Own Wars.
The Fest have officially shown us that it’s never too early to start creating hype! A full 8 months before the annual punk rock festival, and we already have the first installment of boner-inducing bands to look forward to. Heavy hitters include Hot Water Music, Against Me!, None More Black, Less Than Jake, Dillinger Four, Lifetime, Bouncing Souls, Small Brown Bike, and so many more. Notably, the show will also be The Measure [SA]‘s last show.
The festival takes place over the Halloween weekend in Gainesville, Florida. 2011 marks the 10th anniversary of the festival, and will probably be the best-est fest-est ever! Continue reading for the full (yet far from complete) listing, and the hi-res flyer.

In what possibly might be my most upsetting post of the year (based on the first 11 days), The Measure [SA] are breaking up. Over the course of 7 years, the band has released 18 records, on just as many record labels. The band recently release their final full length Notes on No Idea Records.
