Jack Terricloth of The World/Inferno Friendship Society is contemplating death. You see, when he first moved to New York he became infatuated with the band-du-jour, The Paranoid Style. Fronted by the lovely Grace Talicious, The Paranoid Style perfected the difficult combination of sophisticated elegance and radical art.
Terricloth pined after Talicious for years, only building up the courage to finally contact her last year, just before World/Inferno’s annual Hallowmas concert. But, just as Terricloth was about to reach out to Talicious, she was struck dead. Instead of Hallowmas being a celebration, it was quickly converted to a wake for Talicious (although, it was still a big party).
Now World/Inferno is on the verge of releasing This Packed Funeral out November 11 via Alternative Tentacles Records. The album features Terricloth and the rest of the band, speaking at Talicious’ wake, reflecting on what was, and what could have been. Days before the band’s annual Hallowmas show (the details of which the band is keeping hush-hush, though surely, it will play into the album somehow) features editor John Gentile spoke to Terricloth about life, death, and pagan gods.

After nearly a month of entirely mundane but nonetheless paralyzing technical issues, we're back with the first of four new episodes we'll unleash over the next week. On this round, John Gentile, Tom Crandle and Mark Little are joined by Scotty Heath of the mighty Oakland-based record label Tankcrimes for the show. Along with a discussion of the killer year Tankcrimes had, Heath shares his perspective on what it's like to run an independent label in today's age. On the news the group has an extended discussion on the Joyce Manor stage diving controversy, the new video from Mischief Brew, new music from Restorations, Rancid Meghan O'Neil leaving Punch, the big reaction to the latest Mastodon video and more.
We play music this episode by Iron Reagan, Dystopia and GHOUL.

Divided Heaven has posted a video road blog of his tour of Japan this past August. This was Divided Heaven's first time touring Japan. The blog speaks of his thoughts and photos while on tour. You can view the blog post by clicking here.
Hang dropped yesterday and is Lagwagon's first full-length in almost a decade, and everyone is really excited. It's for a good reason, considering that Lagwagon is such a renowned band in the punk scene. But, the question remains: Why was it such a long time between full-lengths? When you are a band as loved as Lagwagon, you would think that you'd feel the need to satiate your fans constant hunger for new music. But, Joey Cape thinks differently, and his reasoning may be part of why Lagwagon has released solid albums for the 20 years they've been around, and this is the first time he's been able to say that the band is 99 percent excited for Hang.
It seemed prudent to speak with Joey and get a full understanding of Hang, so contributing editor Xan Mandell called him up. What followed was a detailed conversation on not only just the writing and recording of Hang and the length of time between full-lengths, but his thoughts on Lagwagon in general, the various themes on Hang, creativity and embracing being a "bitter old man."
