In regards to the new video, Masked Intruder vocalist “Blue” said:

“This video is like a public service announcement about the dangers of live music. Like, a lot of people don’t realize it, but this shit is risky business. And I’m not talking about Tom Cruise movies. And, if I was talking about Tom Cruise movies, I’d be talking about Legend, cause that shit is THE BOMB. But, I’m not, so whatever. The point is, watch out!

Can’t Swim Announce New LP; Premiere New Video

Can't SwimNew Jersey alt-rock/pop-punk band Can’t Swim have announced details for their next LP.  The disc will be titled Fail You Again, and is set to frop on March 10, 2017 via Pure Noise Records.  Coinciding with the announcement the band has premiered a new music video for the track, “We Wont Sleep Now.”  Vocalist Chris LoPorto comments:

“The video for “We Won’t Sleep” shows a scenario that a lot of kids go through growing up. The boy character is interested in Ballet, an art form mostly dominated by women, and his struggle to be accepted by his over masculine father. The girl character wants to be a painter and follow the arts, which is also shunned by her business oriented mother. Something I too have personally dealt with, playing music has never been a lucrative endeavor and I have been told countless times to consider a “different path” in life. In the climax of the video, the parents have an epiphany realizing they should support their children which is the message I hope people take from this video.”

“With this video, we wanted to acknowledge online existence, and how in this day and age, likes and comments can affect our real, waking lives.

We shot this video at The Frequency in Madison Wisconsin, which is where we played our first show ever of all time! The show depicted in this video seems like it would be our last show ever of all time. It’s just a video, though, so chill. No Intruders or cops were harmed in the making, but several pizzas and a lot of booze got fucked up real bad.
 
All the actors and extras in the video are fans that responded to an Instagram casting call! Thanks everyone! It was directed by Bobby Makar with assistance from Chris Norman, and we’re stoked on it!
Cool!'”

“.. You can’t always explain life through things like bad luck,  being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or fate. The lyrics tackle that deep down stress and depression and how it tugs you places you never want to go, the thing about those situations though is that you can choose to push through, choose to walk a thin line and come out safe and happy on the other end. No matter the storm or dark cloud days you keep your own path..”

Less Than Jake To Release New EP ‘Sound The Alarm’

Less Than Jake - Sound The AlarmGainesville, Fla., ska punk legends Less Than Jake are releasing a new EP titled Sound The Alarm on Feb. 3, 2017 via Pure Noise Records. LTJ joined the southern California label’s roster after stopping in San Francisco for Warped Tour last year.

The band is now streaming a track off the upcoming EP. Listen to Things Change here.

In regards to the song, Less Than Jake lyricist and drummer Vinnie Fiorello said:

“‘The only thing constant is change’ is one of the lines in the chorus of the song and such a massive truth to me. The sooner you could realize this, digest it, and embrace it the better off you’re going to be. Let it all move forward, at lightning speed. Everything and everyone changes, the world keeps on spinning like it or not.”

Along with signing to a new record label and releasing an EP, Less Than Jake is celebrating 25 years as a band.

Fiorello continued:

“We started writing this set of songs, similar to our last record ‘See The Light,’ sitting around a table in our warehouse with some acoustic guitars, lyrics scribbled on scraps of paper, and a constant barrage of ideas. Trying ideas as they would come out, sometimes chasing the idea, or getting connected or not connected to an idea right away. We had been writing and were planning on fleshing out the ideas while on Warped Tour.”

Beginning on Jan. 20, Less Than Jake will co-headline a tour through February with rock three-piece Pepper. Check out the tour dates below. Tickets are available here.

Can’t Swim – Stranger

Cant Swim Cover ArtNew Jersey alt-rock/pop-punk band Can’t Swim have premiered a new song.  The track is titled “Stranger,” and is a precursor to their expected 2017 album, of which details are currently unknown. The band released their latest EP, Death Deserves a Name, back in February via Pure Noise Records.  Vocalist Chris Loporto comments:

“”Stranger” is a good representation of what our new record sounds like. The songs are spread out across the spectrum, some quiet and slow while others are fast and aggressive, and I think “Stranger” captures both of those sides pretty well. The idea for the video is also very similar, showing all kinds of relationships between all different types of people. “Stranger” is certainly a good foreshadowing of the band we want to be and the message we want to portray. I hope it sheds some light on what we have planned for the future and how excited we are to release more music.”

“These days putting out new records for LTJ has become a lesson in record collecting, but the choice of label is always about mutual respect. Watching Pure Noise work hard over the years and maneuver through the modern music industry should be a lesson for any labels that are just starting out. Couple that with how much they understand the history of LTJ, that they have favorite songs by the band, and understand where we are right now in our career, makes Pure Noise a perfect place for LTJ and the new release.”
