A press item we recently got from Facedown records camp about their newest addition to their ever-

Facedown Records is proud to welcome Mouth of the South to the Family, and MOTS is so excited that they're offering an exclusive download of their brand new song "Idle Hands", a sneak peak into the new album they'll be recording for Facedown in April.

For six years Texas’ Mouth of the South has been blazing trails with their fiery metalcore riffs and tenacious southern attitude. Though the band has evolved almost entirely from the original lineup and sound in 2007, the fervor is still there as is evidenced by their three self-released albums and well-established touring schedule.

ANTI-FLAG interview

Indie sux, hardline sux, emo sux, you sux and what about punk rock?

by marcs77

The year that recently came to its close saw ANTI-FLAG celebrating 20 years around as a band and on June the 18th, the day this interview happened, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, punk rockers were a few days into a 6 weeks tour and about to play a gig with Bad Religion (out on the “True North” tour) in Milan, Italy at Alcatraz (opening were The Manges from Italy).
Anti-Flag last full-length album “The General Strike” was released on March the 20th 2012 but Pat Thetic (drums and founding member) has been more than happy to do an interview with us and chat about his band, punk rock, activism before the show.
Moving out of comfty air-conditioned venue to the mid afternoon summer sunlight, because of the noisy sound check going on, we sit-squatted right before a nearby run down store on a pretty traffic clogged Milan's street and recorded what you're gonna read.

BURY TOMORROW stream brand new track off upcoming album

Hampshire metallers, BURY TOMORROW, are now streaming their brand new track, 'Watcher', on
YouTube. The track, which got an exclusive first play on Monday evenings Radio 1 Rock Show, is taken from their forthcoming third album, entitled ‘Runes’, set to be released on May 30th, 2014 on Nuclear Blast Records. 

Check out 'Watcher' at or watch it here below.

"We felt this song gave the best representation of the sound we have gone for with Runes. Watcher shows our heavy and melodic side really well and we were stoked to show the world some new riffs," says frontman, Daniel Winter-Bates. "The response so far has been beyond our expectations, people seem to have completely got what we were going for musically and lyrically. We can't wait to release an official single but for now this is a little taster. Runes is the album we have always wanted to make and we cannot wait for everyone to hear it. Progressing from (2012’s) ‘Union of Crowns’, we've tried to capture our favourite era of metalcore whilst blending the nuances of what make the genre so great today. It's a faster, more aggressive album, but it still sounds like us, we couldn't be prouder of it!”

The band can also reveal a tour of intiminate venues around the UK in support of the album’s release.
