Baltimore, MD-based co-ed feminist hardcore punk band War On Women have joined the Bridge Nine Records roster. They recently completed recording 11 new songs that will be released in early 2015 on their yet-to-be-titled debut full-length.
The five piece band which included former members of AVEC and Liars Academy, released their debut EP, Improvised Weapons, back in 2012 on Exotic Fever Records and played alongside the likes of Propagandhi, Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School of Medicine, Murder City Devils, The Menzingers and more.
More information on War On Women‘s new album will be available soon. Next month they will be going on tour through the U.S. and Canada with Propagandhi and RVIVR.
Frameworks and The Saddest Landscape will be doing a European tour together which will see them playing shows in the UK, France, Belgium and Germany this October. The Topshelf Records acts will be joined on several dates by the Mannheim five-piece The Tidal Sleep.
This is Frameworks‘ first time overseas and will have them supporting the release of their critically acclaimed debut full length “Loom” which was released in April. The Saddest Landscape, who has released over 25 splits, EPs and full lengths since their formation in 2002, haven’t been to Europe since 2011.

Rain City Rockers, the band assembled by Andrew Conroy and including members of punk rock stalwarts such as Gob, Goldfinger, Die Mannequin and Sum 41 have announced that their debut record, Mayday, will be released on September 16th via Flashlight Music Group. The album is full of catchy pop punk hooks and in order to create and capture a more raw sound the tracks were laid down in a single day and Conroy has said this about the process:
“The entire album was recorded live off the floor…I wanted to capture that feel with a modern sound. You may even hear some of our little mistakes – but I love the energy behind it. To me, the energy and feel is more important than making sure every note is perfectly in tune, or every drum hit is perfectly on time.”
Rain City Rockers also features Tom Thacker (Sum 41, Gob), Anthony Bleed (Die Mannequin), Darrin Pfeiffer (Goldfinger) and you can hear the first single from Mayday, titled Saint Babe here.
London based outfit The One Hundred have announced details of their debut EP, Subculture which is due for release on September 1st via UNFD Records.
