The Menzingers have posted a new song entitled “The Obituaries” via SoundCloud. The track is the first material to be released off their upcoming Epitaph debut, which is scheduled for a spring 2012 release.

In January, the Philadelphia-based band will be joining Rise Against and A Day To Remember on the eastern leg of their US tour.

Fest 10 Wrap Up Video

A great wrap up video from this year’s The FEST 10 in Gainesville, FL.


The debut album from Buffalo, New York’s Lieutenant comes after a long wait. With unfinished demos and pre-mastered CD-r’s floating around the better part of a decade, all loose ends were finally tied earlier this year to finally give the band’s self-titled LP the release it deserves. Featuring members spanning a number of Buffalo bands such as Lemuria, Running For Cover, To Hell And Back, and Resist Control, current (or is it former?) members of Lieutenant have mostly moved on to their respective labels, hence the three way collaboration on the LP pressing between Art Of The Underground, Peter Walkee, and Warm Bath.

Bands You Need To Know- Run, Forever

Run ForeverThere really isn’t a good reason why Run, Forever shouldn’t already be your favorite new band. The Pittsburgh, PA-based trio has found their stride playing tunes that blend the folk-rock sounds of early Against Me! and The Sidekicks’ ‘90s emo-pop homage to create a sound that should be welcoming to anyone that appreciates anything that falls under the blanket term of punk music. The band’s debut full-length The Devil, And The Death, and Me is beautifully morbid and insanely poppy, and their recently released split 7” with Atlanta’s The Wild takes from the most intense, driving sounds of their full length and turns it up a notch. If you want to check out a band that in a couple months/years will have you can saying “I knew about this band before they got huge,” then go listen to Run, Forever pronto. A band this good cannot go unnoticed for very long.

Be sure to check out Run, Forever at FEST 10 on Friday Oct. 28th at The Laboratary at 11:20pm
