The formidable 9-song collection is the band’s strongest and most cohesive album to date.
Formed in 1976 at the forefront of the fledgling London punk scene, The Damned kick-started the birth of punk as we know it, leaving an influential legacy for generations to come. Their musical journey has seen the quintet intent on moving forward, courageously exploring sights and sounds way beyond their brash wide-eyed beginnings - and they’re back to do it all over again. Some ten years since the release of their last studio recordings, The Damned return with a new album, ‘Evil Spirits’, to be released April 13th on Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records.

THE LAST GANG hit the ground running with their Fat Wreck Chords debut 7" Sing for your Supper in December 2017. From the second that needle dropped, fans felt the infectious energy this LA threesome has become known for.
Gods of Mount Olympus originally started as a duo in 2013 when Brian Wahlstrom met Paul Rucker (Street Dogs) through mutual friend Joey Cape (Lagwagon). The band now also includes Matt Riddle of No Use For A Name and Steve Morris of Unwritten Law. The band is best defined as a piano-centric, punk & jazz aka “Billy Joel on Meth” sound and with legendary members from punk rock and Brian’s constant touring with Scorpios and Joey Cape, this project has all the ingredients of greatness. Brian was the first One Week Record artist, and he also helped launch the label with Joey Cape.

Damien Done (As Friends Rust/Morning Again/Culture/etc.) returns with his first full-length effort, Charm Offensive -- an album laden with tales of blackmail, voyeurism, secrecy and guilt. Still nodding to the doom-tinged rock'n'roll of his previous releases, Charm Offensive now sees Damien Done exploring a lush, gloomy pop frontier, at times calling to mind the shimmering black art of Tears for Fears, Billy Idol or Echo & The Bunnymen. Charm Offensive is dense and unsettling, but strangely sweet and impossibly distinct.
Friday, March 16th, 2018 will mark the worldwide release of Hot Snakes’ Jericho Sirens, the long-awaited fourth album (and first in 14 years!!!) from the San Diego-based punk rock recidivists. The album was produced by the band and recorded in Philadelphia and San Diego throughout 2017.
Earlier this month, Hot Snakes whet fan appetites by unleashing a trailer featuring :60 (of a total :78) seconds of the monster Jericho Sirens track “Why Don’t It Sink In?” And late yesterday afternoon, Jenny Eliscu premiered the tumultuous new single “Six Wave Hold-Down” on her Sirius XMU show.
Northern Michigan rock band Hot Mulligan has announced they will release their long-awaited, debut album, Pilot, on March 23rd with No Sleep Records.
It’s easy to get lost in Wisconsin. Metropolitan centers might anchor to the Midwest, but patches of sprawling wilderness and bitter weather make for an American outlier. Barely Civil was built from this backdrop — four different dots on the state map. Despite this, their debut full-length We Can Live Here Forever plots a journey home, whatever and wherever that means. Stopovers across genre and structure keep the pace measured and lean, while Matt Riefler’s layered production explodes any breathing room into powerful statements.
