Allusondrugs Offer New Single For Free

AllusondrugsWest Yorkshire grunge rockers Allusondrugs have released a new single, I Should Have Gone To Uni (Clue Records), and are offering it as a free download via their soundcloud page. Guitarist and songwriter Damo Hughes has this to say about the track:

This song was written about 3 years ago while i was at a particularly low point…I was watching all the people I used to know starting up families, moving towards higher education and going on to do great things while I wasn’t really doing anything with my life. It’s basically about being depressed and feeling like you’ve done all the wrong things and don’t really have a place in the world. Musically I think the song is fairly upbeat though, I’ve always really liked the juxtaposition of dark, depressing lyrics over optimistic sounding music.”

Break-Ups: Ex Friends (2011-2014)

Ex FriendsEx Friends (featuring members of Plow United and Beach Slang) has called it a day.  The band made the announcement on PunkNews, stating:

“After almost exactly three years as a band, Ex Friends is calling it a day. The punk rock universe has been very kind to us and we are grateful. We played our first show in a basement and our last show on a festival stage. We made a lot of records and met a lot of great friends. One day we woke up and it was 2014 and we were five people with pretty intense day jobs and lots of other musical commitments. Life is pulling us in different directions. That’s cool. That’s how life is supposed to be. Breakups are sad but, hey, don’t feel bad for us. We got to meet the Wu-Tang Clan! 

Audrey and Leta continue to play in Pushin’ it 2 the Limit and Mohawk Town. Leta continues to play in Retreevers. Jayme continues to play in Glitter. Joel continues to play in Plow United. His new project, The Rentiers, will release its first record in 2015. JP continues to play in Beach Slang.”

This year’s Animal Needs marked the band’s final release.

Stream: Two Inch Astronaut – ‘Part Of Your Scene’

Two Inch AstronautMaryland noise punks Two Inch Astronaut are streaming Part Of Your Scene, a track taken from their upcoming album Foulbrood, due for release on November 25th via Exploding in Sound Records. Guitarist/vocalist Sam Rosenberg commented about how the song came together:

“The riff from “Part of Your Scene” actually came about when we were in practice trying unsuccessfully to impersonate the band Dead Wives. It was pretty much written in one day and wasn’t really tinkered with after that, which is highly unusual for us…It’s about how bratty and unattractive people (bands) can become when they feel like their art is unappreciated.”

Part Of Your Scene can be streamed here, and check out the cover art for Foulbrood below.

 ”It’s specifically about when we were signing to sire and how it felt like such a gamble to go with such a big label…We’re referring to Blackjack. It’s like saying ‘give me the next card and let’s see if it pays off.’ Maybe we’ll hit 21 or maybe we’ll go bust, either way we prefer the unknown, fuck it.”
