Light Years has announced that they will be heading on tour with Mixtapes and You Blew It! this summer with support from Modern Baseball and Last Call on select dates. Light Years are supporting their debut LP, I Won’t Hold This Against You, which is available now throughout the world on a variety of formats through various record labels.
A second pressing of their Escapist Records released Just Between Us 7” is currently in the works for a winter release on all new color variations; more details in the coming months.
Major League has debuted a brand new music video. The video features the song “Final Thoughts” from their latest album, Hard Feelings, out now on No Sleep Records. Guitarist/co-vocalist Brian Joyce comments on the song meaning:
“When I’m laying on my deathbed, it’s not going to matter what kind of car I’m driving or how big my house is… It’s the experiences and memories we’ve made that I get to take to the grave with me. If all of this ended tomorrow than we’ve been extremely blessed with the opportunities we’ve been given. That’s what both this song and video mean to us.”
Austin’s alt-punks Driver Friendly have released a video for their track Run from their new EP Peaks + Valleys. The video was recorded over 2 days at an abandoned school and features the band inside rooms with wall to wall TV’s. Singer and synth player Tyler Dagger had this to say about the shoot:
”We used over 30 TVs in the music video, and we found them in various garage sales or on Craigslist. The school only had a couple working electricity outlets so we bought huge extension chords that were over a hundred feet when combined.”
Don’t try that at home kids, but DO check out the video for Runhere.
Filthy metallic hardcore act Cowards has debuted a brand new song. The track is titled “Fork Out” and appears on their upcoming 12″ EP Hoarder, due out September 1, 2013 on Throatruiner Records and Ruins Records.

Hamden, CT’s Wolves At Bay have announced an east coast tour from July 5-12 in support of their latest release, I Was the Devil Once which is out now on Animal Style Records.
The record follows Wolves at Bay’s 2011 LP, Only a Mirror. The EP was produced, mixed, mastered and engineered by Nick Bellmore (Make Do And Mend, Hatebreed, Toxic Holocaust, Death Threat) at Dexter’s Lab Recording in Milford CT.
Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong has posted yet another new song under the moniker Tim Timebomb and Friends.
Just as he has down in the past, the newest song from Tim is a re-imagined version of a classic Rancid tune as they tackle Journey To The End of the East Bay from their landmark album, … And Out Come The Wolves.

Columbus Ohio’s punk sons Two Cow Garage have announced their new album The Death of the Self-Preservation Society will be released in partnership with Last Chance Records in September of this year. The band retreated to the countryside setting of Hi/Lo Studios, which is actually a 100 year old barn (we suspect more than 2 cows could fit in this ‘garage’ though). Vocalist Micah Schnabel enjoyed being back in the studio and has said that being in a more isolated location helped the band focus:
“We’ve recorded there a few times and we have just fallen in love with it,” Schnable said of the studio. “We sleep in the old farm house and wake up every morning to go out and record all day and night. The studio is actually up in what would be the hay loft and it overlooks the farm. It’s just a great place to be locked away and not have the distractions of every day life.”
The Death of the Self-Preservation Society was initially funded through an Indiegogo project, but for those who didn’t, its not long to wait now!
