It's not really the first Rock Against... and sadly to say surely it isn't gonna be the last.

Fat Wreck Chords signs THE BOMBPOPS

Read on the lengthy press-release about FAT WRECK's latest addition to their family...

As the saying goes, you have your whole life to write your first record, and only a few years to write your second one. SoCal punk quartet The Bombpops are still caught up in the first part of that saying, though: Formed in 2007 by co-frontwomen Jen Razavi and Poli van Dam, The Bombpops are just now getting their debut full-length, Fear Of Missing Out, out into the world. However, according to Razavi, there are a lot of very valid reasons for the delay.
First off, the intervening decade found The Bombpops endure an absurd amount of lineup changes. “We’ve had three drummers and six bass players,” Razavi says with a sigh. “Each time felt like starting over.” Adding to that was an opportunity to work with No Use For A Name frontman Tony Sly, who expressed interest in producing the band before his sudden death in 2012. “I had one of the best conversations in my life with Tony at Punk Rock Bowling in May, and then he passed away in July,” Razavi laments.

Hardcore punk band LAST LIGHT debuts new song "Conquer and Rise"

Rising hardcore-punk band LAST LIGHT, feat. ex-members of Unity, Uniform Choice, Ignite and
Outspoken, has released an incendiary new punk-rock anthem called "Conquer and Rise".
Conquer and Rise is a song about the fundamental insecurities everybody deals with. Sometimes it's wired into our life experience or sometimes these insecurities surface when we are challenged to perform or function outside our comfort zone. When fight or flight ensues we have the opportunity to advance or retreat. “Conquer and Rise” is the call to fight the questioning of self-worth, and the lack of confidence insecurity creates when we need to obtain or achieve a goal greater than we have before.” - Jae Hansel (vocals).

Germany's pop punk STORYTELLER released a new video


Pop Punk is definitely not dead, not as of now and surely not in the very near future either...do you agree?

STORYTELLER just released a new music video for their song "Consequences", taken from their brand new album "Problems Solved", released on Let It Burn records last September 16th, 2016.
The album, their third outing, counting the debut EP and first full-length both dated 2013, was recorded at the Sawdust Recording Studios by Christoph and Peter.
The amazing artwork is by Chris Brodily / Hatrobot.com.
The record contains 11 late-summer bangers that hit the pop punk spot without bullshitting around and the 5 boys from Dessau, Germany seriously stepped their game up with this new release. Through extensive touring and playing shows & fests all over the country the band has reached the next level as musicians, without sounding too grown up on "Problems Solved".
Summer posi vibes are guaranteed!

NERVUS get well spooky and cover a bunch of spooky songs

NERVUS is a Watford based indie-punk rock band that sounds like the wonderful amalgamation of
Alkaline Trio and Into It. Over It.. Nervus started as a bedroom project and saw guitarist/vocalist Em create and write music to help cope overcoming addictions in various different forms as well as working through their own gender identity.

Nervus' LP "Permanent Rainbow" comes out next Friday and because it's the spookiest time of the year they've only gone and done a Halloween covers record called Permanent Painbow. Featuring such spooky bangers as "Over At The Frankenstein Place from The Rocky Horror Picture Show", Obituary's "Chopped In Half" and Entombed/Roky Erikson's "Night Of The Vampires".
