Shana Cleveland & The Sandcastles
Apr 24, 2015 12:30pm | StereoGum
La Luz frontwoman Shana Cleveland is releasing her solo debut with her other band, the Sandcastles, in May. We premiered the finger-picked rattler "Itching Around" a few weeks back, and before that she also shared the quiet, cat-stretch lazy track "Golden Days." Now, she's directed a drama-kid-weird video for yet another excellent song … More »




Plague Vendor share new song "Wanted Man"; tickets still available for Brooklyn with Bad Religion
Apr 24, 2015 12:28pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Last year, California garage punks Plague Vendor released their ripping debut album Free to Eat on Epitaph, and they're currently in the studio working on its followup. To give us a taste of what's to come, the band posted a demo of the tentatively-titled "Wanted Man," which makes this new album seem pretty promising. It has all the unfiltered fiery punk of the debut intact, but there's also a flamboyant swagger that reminds you they're not only on the label that brought us Rancid and NOFX, but also the one that put out the first Hives album. Check out the new song below.

As previously mentioned, Plague Vendor have an upcoming tour opening for Epitaph honcho Brett Gurewitz's band Bad Religion. That tour has Bad Religion playing two-night stands in various cities with an all-20th century set on night 1 and an all-21st century set on night 2. There's two separate runs in NYC -- 6/9 & 6/10 at MHOW and 6/11 & 6/12 at Bowery Ballroom -- and three of those are sold out but you can still get tickets to the 6/10 MHOW show, which is a 21st century set.

Plague Vendor also play Desert Daze Festival in Mecca, CA with Failure, Chelsea Wolfe, White Lung and more; and open one of Alkaline Trio's discography shows in San Francisco. All of their dates are listed, with the new song, below...

Shut Up, Dude: This Week
Apr 24, 2015 12:16pm | StereoGum
Here at Stereogum we love musicians. But musicians do not always love us, especially this week. Amanda Palmer stopped by to address our criticism of her crowdfunding endeavors, though to her credit she stuck around and answered questions. We ranked post-punk band Wire's albums worst to best and they were not impressed. More »



Planes Mistaken For Stars Announce Mercy Reissue, Promise New Music
Apr 24, 2015 12:03pm | StereoGum
The Colorado-by-way-of-Illinois band Planes Mistaken For Stars were ticketed for some degree of stardom when their first full-length album, Fuck With Fire, dropped in 2001. That was the same year that brought Thursday's Full Collapse, Hot Water Music's A Flight And A Crash, and Converge's Jane Doe. In other words: a boom time for scathing, … More »

Fucked Up are joining forces with DOOMSQUAD to become an epic 9-piece
Apr 24, 2015 11:42am | Chart Attack

As much as Fucked Up's albums have been praised for destroying the conventions of punk and hardcore, their Zodiac series of singles is where they really stretch out (last year's "Year of the Dragon" made our Best Canadian Songs of 2014 list). These pieces, each upwards of 15 minutes long, are even more epic than the rock operaiest David Comes To Life track, beefier than The Chemistry of Common Life, more progressive than your parents' record collection. They're so ambitious that they need more arms and voices and smoke machines to play live, and so their performances are few and far between.

This June, with the release of the new Year of the Hare, they'll go on their first Zodiac tour. And they're not doing it alone. Because three guitars aren't enough to represent the scope of the "Year"s, they've expanded to a nine-piece, enveloping the Toronto/Montreal moon siblings in DOOMSQUAD. Expect costumes, ample amounts of flute and recorder, and, probably, lots of weed smoke.

Get caught up below with "California Cold" the B-side from Fucked Up's upcoming Hare below and the brand new (and very funky) DOOMSQUAD single "Two-Way Mirror." Then head to Fucked Up's new standalone Zodiac site to listen to all six previously released Zodiac singles (if you listen to them all in a row, it might break your brain, but it's worth it).
