Punk Rock festival BAY FEST 2017, final line-up confirmed

After months of very hard work the staff behind the BAY FEST, an Italian summer punk rock festival that this year marks its third edition, confirms the final line-up for the 3-day event that kicks off on Aug. 13th to end on Aug. 15th (the Ferragosto Italiano).
The location by the Adriatico sea is the same that held the previous editions, the Pavese park (Beky Bay) in Bellaria Igea Marini (Rimini).
The festival started out on a humble key as a 4-band-one-day gig that saw skate-punkers Millencolin headlining and playing their sole Italian gig, after some 7 years since the release of their last work, to grow up into a 2-day festival last year.
For the third edition the bands that will be playing are 19 and the guys added on the 13th a warm-up day on for a special price deal.

The following bands will be hitting the stage:

LESS THAN JAKE interview

by marcs77

The older among our readers, those who were young kids and living the punk rock scene in early/mid 90’s, certainly will remember that Ska-2-tone sounds got their bit of renaissance (somebody labels this revival as third-wave or even post-third wave being the ska-2-tone style first making its splashes in the 50’s) and lotta cool bands from USA and different corners of the world came out and started writing music definitely drawing influences from ska genre's classics but that got brilliantly fused together with punk rock and its attitude and urgency; this new soulful bouncing sound soon after got labeled as Ska-Punk or Ska-core.
GOTANERVE-ZINE got to email a few questions to Gainesville, Florida's LESS THAN JAKE, one of those 90’s bands still rock n’ rolling and doing strong 25 years and 9 records into their career, and that has a new EP, titled “Sound The Alarm”, out now on Pure Noise records. Vinnie Fiorello (drums and founder member) took some time out while on tour with his band to answer. Read on…

HOLY+GOLD releasing "Feral Children" on February 17

Some sounds that may take you back to the 90's...


While the name HOLY+GOLD might not instantly ring a bell, the Atlanta five-piece consists of some familiar names including former members of the band's Norma Jean, The Chariot and The Glass Ocean, to name a few.
Friends for nearly half their lives, the band members only recently formed Holy+Gold, after making a concerted effort to spend more time together playing music, after adulthood and everyday responsibilities got in the way.
In early 2016, the guys convened in the home studio of their friend Dave Fountain (of the band Murder By Death) to record their debut album "Feral Children" themselves. The album was also partially recorded in the tool shed that they practice in. It was then mixed and mastered by their other close friend Ryan Boesch at his Parhelion Studios.
Holy+Gold released "Feral Children" as a "pay-what-you-want" on Band Camp in late 2016, where it racked up an impressive number of streams and was the best-selling rock album on the site for a few weeks), and now the album will finally get an official release on February 17, 2017.

They are back! THE OBSESSED announce new album "Sacred" and premiere new song

This is really comes as a news we weren't expecting at all; the doom icon Wino exhumed from the cold wet soil THE OBSESSED (if you haven't heard of this band you must check their seminal self-titled debut LP recorded in 1985 and released in 1990 on Hellbound records after the band split up in 1986)...
Maryland doom legends THE OBSESSED will unleash "Sacred", the band’s first studio album in over 20 years. April 7, 2017 is the release date set worldwide for "Sacred" and the album is gonna be out via Relapse Records on CD/LP/DLX 2xLP/Digital.

With renewed energy and purpose, THE OBSESSED sounds heavier and more relevant than ever before. On Sacred, the band doubles down on enormous, heaving riffs and pummeling low-end across 12 tracks of eternal doom. Rounded out by Wino’s lyrical honesty and iconic throaty vocals, Sacred is an album that further pushes THE OBSESSED into the annals of heavy metal history, well worth the two-plus decade wait. The band will perform once again as three piece featuring Wino, Reid Raley and Brian Costantino.
