Max Kagan & Mark Fletcher, both native New Yorkers, met on 12/12/12 during a 24-hour long noise show at their beloved hometown venue/clubhouse Shea Stadium. After joining forces with powerhouse drummer Johnny Spencer, the three have been making music under various names ever since. The most refined & fully-formed version of that collaboration can be found in the form of Stringer, who, with the addition of Riley Zimmer (bass), have been a band since late 2015. Stringer likes eating ethnic food & drinking at old man bars that open at 8am.
Belmont has announced that their upcoming self-titled full-length album will be out on August 17th through Mutant League Records.
Belmont spent the better part of the last two years racking up miles and fans through constant touring with the likes of Have Mercy, Hot Mulligan, Capstan and more in promotion of their previous release "Between You & Me". The EP was celebrated by fans and critics alike, gaining millions of streams & views across digital music platforms.
It's been a few years since Post Season's last release, but the wait will prove to be worth it. Produced and engineered by Paul Leavitt (All Time Low, Senses Fail, The Dangerous Summer, Have Mercy), the band's self-titled record still delivers on their signature sound with catchy hooks, powerful instrumentation and genuine emotion, but also displays a furthered sense of maturity in their musicianship and lyricism, echoing the ongoing struggle of growing older and chasing your passions while facing the realities of everyday life.
Jupiter Styles' new album "Be Good" will be out July 13 via Other World Recordings (U.S.) and Human Noise Records (U.K.).
Jupiter Styles is the solo project from Chicago-based singer-songwriter Sean Neumann. This record (and variations of Jupiter's live band) features members of Ratboys, Pet Symmetry, ex-Pinegrove, Lifted Bells and more. The 10-track album ranges from pounding punk songs that last less than a minute to pedal-steel infused alt-country tracks built on storytelling.
Twenty-one years is a long time between albums.
Since calling it quits in 1997, Tampa, FL's Pohgoh has been known to break out the guitars for the occasional one-off reunion over the years. The last one reignited a missing passion and desire to write and perform music together. Susie Ulrey (vocals, guitar), Matt Slate (guitar), Keith Ulrey (drums) and new bassist Brian Roberts (Hankshaw, Murder Suicide Pact) spent the last couple of years hunkered down in their practice space revisiting the old material while hashing out fresh ideas.
Canadian punk/rock band Like Pacific will make their return this summer with the release of the band’s 2nd full-length album In 'Spite Of Me', which comes out July 27th from Pure Noise Records.
"When we wrote Distant Like You Asked, I felt super proud of writing an entire full length album but was very nervous. In Spite of Me means more to me than anything I’ve ever done creatively. We worked super hard writing and recording this album. The hardest I’ve ever personally worked” - Jordan Black (vocals)

“Of all my bands, this name makes the most sense of all,” explains FORMER MEMBER frontman Jason Shevchuk. “I have a musical past. Anything I do musically comes with baggage. No matter what I do, I’ll always be a former member of something.” Shevchuk messing around on his guitar with no agenda and Grammy-nominated producer Will Yip having the urge to play drums lead to the culmination of their debut album Old Youth which is set for a worldwide release on July 13th via Yip’s very own Memory Music.
Canada's The Dirty Nil have been tearing their way through the world's grimiest basements and loudest clubs for years, and their new LP ‘Master Volume,’ (Dine Alone Records, out September 14th) multiplies their JUNO-winning (Breakthrough Group of the Year) sound to stadium-filling, nosebleed-reaching dimensions. Asserting an amplified, technically informed, yet polish-free style, the band proves their punk mastery while retaining all of their raw, buzzed-out power.
