France's SCHOOLYARDS - COMRADES 2.0 music video (feat. Cédric Pouiol Beast & Toki The Arrs)

Mitry-Mory, France resident and self-labelled rock'n'core combo SCHOOLYARDS (with members of Memories of Dead Man, Dirty Baztard, Ana sage, The Arrs, Beast, if you know the French HC PUNK scene these names may ring a bell) has just released an official music video for the song "Comrades 2.0", a demo version of the eponym song to be featured on their upcoming debut album.
The lyrics address the GAFA tax evasion scheme which jeopardises the nations sovereignty at its core.

SEX PRISONER - HARM DONE - Split 12"/CD/Tape, upcoming Euro tour kicking off on Oct. the 25th

A bulldozer of a split from USA's SEX PRISONER and France, Nantes based's HARM DONE...

After they worked on a European tour happening in October 2017 both bands decided to release a split record. 8 tracks (4 each) of their own kind of furious Powerviolence / Hardcore filled with Metal influences.

SEX PRISONER, Tucson, Arizona - powerviolence/Hardcore unit, sounds a lot like Crossed Out mixed with some Infest. The sound is heavy, abrasive, and definitely rife with anger. They rarely venture into full-on thrash, which is a plus and offering sixteen furious bursts of burly powerviolence/hardcore.

HARM DONE, featuring members of RAW JUSTICE, DIREWOLVES and REGARDE LES HOMMES TOMBER, started in the Fall 2013. They recorded their debut 7″ in April 2014, a promo tape in May 2015 and debut full length later the same year. They play some kind of cold and no frills powerviolence filled with speed, ignorant breakdowns and HM2 metallic guitar sound.
This record is a collaboration between 4 labels: STRAIGHT & ALERT records and RSR records for the European pressing. DEEP SIX records and TO LIVE A LIE records for the North American pressing. And the artwork is cortesy of Sebastian Bxe (Negativ Null).

You can listen here to the 2-minute trailer Straight And Alert records made for pushing the split

Psychedelic ritualists ETHEREAL RIFFIAN release a new documentary

This psychedelic litanistic heavy experimental doom rock band from Kiev, Ukraine kind of stands among a league of its own; not just because of the crossing of musical boundaries and heading out to unknown roads but the whole complex yet entralling concept, vision and drive behind this artistic project.
As the quartet states "The band’s activity has two main objectives: to compose unconventional music, which is able to expand the frames of the listener’s musical perception, and to shed light on the existence of a subtler plan, whose laws if understood properly may help to perceive the reality on a deeper level".
The band released their latest opus "Afterlight" on August the 17th.

The new documentary “Ethereal Riffian Relics” is dedicated to the band’s very special approach to crafting limited editions. It’s divided into two parts: in the first one, frontman Val Kornev answers 10 questions about ETHEREAL RIFFIAN’s limited editions series; in the second one, all limited editions created by the band to date are showcased.

The band comments: “We already have a short documentary called “Robust Rehearsal”, which describes the background of the band, its creative world, work in literature and its very essential philosophical and spiritual components,” says band leader Val Kornev. “And now we release “Ethereal Riffian Relics” documentary which explains the role of visual presentation and can help our listeners to create a more thorough understanding of our work. This short film will be of interest for all lovers of limited editions, for those who already create exclusive items and for those who only have an intention to create it”.

Now streaming: Czech Rep's REMEK "LP"

This isn't actually a brand new record since it was released on May 4th 2014 but we believe it's really worth checking out.
LP, yeah that's how it looks like they named it, is the second to last release of Czech screamo diy foursome REMEK, a prominent band among the Czech Rep. hardcore punk scene around since 2010.
Their song are screamed in the band's mother-tongue language but you can read the English translation available for each and every track.
I have learned off bandcamp the band is behind and involved with Coffee Breath Records, a label through which they release records on a pay-what-you-want basis and give the money they collect to organizations they care about—mostly those that work around human rights and animal liberation.

MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY - Live @ Superbowl Hardcore - Pescara 24/02/1996

I was recently going through the tales H.P. Lovercraft, the famed horror fiction poet/writer from Providence, wrote in the last years of his career going from 1931 to 1936 (the tales include the classics "At The Mountains Of Madness" and "The Shadow Over Innsmouth"). In these writings the uncanny name Miskatonic University, the fictional varsity located in the likewise imaginary city of Arkham, which comes up in several of his stories, took me down memory lane and made me think of a 90's harcore band from Ravenna, Italy.
The 4-piece band, bringing the same name of Lovercraftian university, has been around in the Italian and European punk hardcore between 1992 and 2000 and self-labelled their blend of metallic hardcore sounds and pulp culture infused lyrics Pulp-Core.
Before calling it a day the Miska released two full-length albums, the s/t dated 1993 and the 1995's follow-up "There Will Be Only One" on Boundless records (their own label), and 3 7" EPs.
In 1996, at the peak of their "career" (quote from the band), Miskatonic University played the Pescara Superbowl Hardcore on Feb. the 24th and somebody shot the video of their whole gig you can watch here -it was 1996 so don't complain about video and sound quality, which is pretty good all things considered

Oldies but always goodies: LIFE OF AGONY "This Time"

Got first introduced to this band thanks to a show aired in the 90's on the late Video Music channel and titled INDIES.
Attilio Grilloni, the host, was using big words to present this hot new band from Brooklyn, New York named LIFE OF AGONY and debuting on Roadrunner records with the album "River Runs Red". When the video of the song "This Time" kicked off...baam! How couldn't the host be more right about LOA?
Their music just blew me away big time -that break at around 1:24 to 1:38 and the song speeding up into the 1st chorus "You said, "I've got time"But you ain't got time for me" is just freaking awesome. The best mix ever of heavy doomy metal and melodic hardcore.

THE LILLINGTONS to release new album "Stella Sapiente" on Oct. the 13th

Sci-fi punks alert! Read on Fat Wreck press release on THE LILLINGTONS' return...

It’s been over a decade since The Lillingtons released a full-length album—and an anomaly of a record at that. 2006’s The Too Late Show proved The Lillingtons were just as powerful as they were in their initial run, even if the band wasn’t inclined to hop back in the van and be a full-time concern. But with recent spats of activity—touring sporadically and releasing the Project 313 7-inch on Red Scare Industries—*The Lillingtons* are once again giving this band thing a go.

Having signed to Fat Wreck Chords, The Lillingtons toiled away on their new record in secret, crafting an album that is both a continuation of the band’s legacy and a dramatic reinvention. It’s called Stella Sapiente, a title that vocalist-guitarist Kody Templeman says roughly translates to “wisdom of the stars,” and that phrase proves apt given his claim that it’s “centered around secret societies, astrology, and the occult.” This kind of subject matter makes perfect sense for The Lillingtons, a band that has never— and likely will never—find much interest in the mundane. Their songs are pulpy vignettes steeped in intrigue, unraveling mysteries, conspiracies, and cloak-and-dagger operations while bashing through buzzy, pop-focused punk songs.

VLADA INA interview

by marcs77

After having had to go through quite a few email exchanges and countless phone calls, with managers, PRs, you name it, we have finally somehow managed to get hold of the up and coming and hottest a cappella boy-band from Leipzig, Germany. The stylish tanned boys named themselves VLADA INA and while gracing the stage, wearing fresh-from-the-runway looks, they’ll be moshing your asses up with their sounds; ah, these dudes don’t lip-sync, ok?. The Vlada Ina’s are addicted players of Pokémon and all things Pokémonian and, thus far, they have two recordings out; the latest being entitled “True Chill” and out through Toxic Tape records, on cassette, and on 7” vinyl via Powetrip records. Well, here we are, some of above facts are true but a good bunch of other stuff is totally false bullshits. So, read on what Max had to reply to our questions and discover yourselves how to tell the truth from complete falsehood about Vlada Ina. Have a good read!

gan: Hey VLADA INA what’s up?

INSANITY release first single "Down" off the upcoming album "Toss A Coin”

Tough female sport-related (I didn't know what was all about, and whether it classifies as sport, really, before looking for some info) video clip, which features some live-action-photage of Luzerne all-female Roller Derby team named The Hellveticats, over a beatdown hardcore soundtrack.
That's the music video, hardcore five-piece INSANITY just released, for the first single "Down" off the upcoming album "Toss A Coin", out through Bastardized Recordings on May the 26th 2017.

Lucerne, Switzerland's Insanity stand for unique, genuine Hardcore that is highly addictive through a lot of gangshouts and singalongs, based on moving rhythms following the New York Hardcore tradition. The band is internationally experienced, headlined many tours and shared the stage with pretty much all the legends of the scene (Hatebreed, Agnostic Front, Madball, Sick Of It All, Terror, and many more).
Their songs connect social criticism and joy of life, and the guys are well-known for their original music videos and energetic live shows.
"Toss A Coin" follows the debut album “No Limit “and the EP “Ready To Row”.

BUIOINGOLA: Italian darkwave/neocrust shadowdwellers released final mesmerizing album "Il Nuovo Mare"

Italy's BUIOINGOLA shouldn't be a new name to you since we reviewed their first self-released
work "Dopo L'Apnea". The band is back with a new opus of abyssal music.
Read on the press release from San Francisco cultist of blackest sounds Sentient Ruin Laboratories about "Il Nuovo Mare" the new record from Buioingola...

We are extremely excited to announce the release of "Il nuovo mare". The new and final album by mysterious Italian experimental darkwave/post-doom band Buioingola.
Perhaps reaching the end of their obscure but unparalleled existence, Buiongola present their swansong to the world in the form of a brand new monolith of obsidian black sonic affliction. This brand new - and perhaps final - full-length player by the now dissolved tuscan three-piece is an ulterior step the band has taken toward an unfathomable abyss, shaped once again by the band’s signature strain of agonizing, shoegazy crust and haunting post-punk, interwoven with dismal dark wave dirges, towering black/doom passages, and martial industrial tapestries.

ALL FOR NOTHING just released their new full-length "Minds Awake, Hearts Alive"

Rotterdam's female fronted hardcore band ALL FOR NOTHING released on April the 7th the follow-up to 2014's "What Lies Within Us" (GSR Music), which is poignantly titled "Minds Awake, Hearts Alive" and out through Düsseldorf based Redfield records.

You can now watch here the official video for the song "At First Sight" off the new record

CJ RAMONE takes "American Beauty" on tour in the USA and Europe

A very super lengthy press item from Fat Wreck Chords. But it's about CJ RAMONE, you know?

Out of the seven billion or so people on the planet, only seven men have been lucky enough to be gifted with the Ramone surname. As of 2017, four have already headed off to that great gig in the sky. Thankfully, CJ Ramone has no plans to leave any time soon. He expertly stepped in for Dee Dee in 1989 and played with the legendary punk quartet until their 1996 breakup. He sang lead on “Strength To Endure”; he wrote two tracks for the band’s farewell album, ¡Adios Amigos!; he was onstage for their epic final show, delivering those iconic “1-2-3-4!” shouts and rubbing shoulders onstage with Eddie Vedder, Tim Armstrong and Lemmy. CJ Ramone is as important a part of punk rock history as anyone else you can think of, and the best part is he’s just getting started. “When you’re in the Ramones family, you’re a Ramone for life,” CJ says. “Richie Ramone still has it; Marky Ramone still has it; hell, Johnny Ramone’s wife changed her last name to Ramone. I absolutely feel obliged to keep the legacy going. I 100 percent do. I feel it. I don’t sit down and try to write Ramones songs, but I was a huge fan since I was a kid. I played in the band for seven years. I’m undeniably influenced hugely by them. I’ve heard people say what I do sounds like the Ramones. Of course it does! How could it not?”

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…
