John G here and I'm bringing you three ballzy new reviews. So, c'mon, don't bullshit me, right here. Read the reviews and let off some steam.
Today's reviews are:
Andrew Seward formerly of Against Me! is in a new band called Strange Lords. They just released their self-titled debut album on their Bandcamp page. The album was released in a low-key fashion with Seward stating via Twitter: "My new bands record is out today, cause we put it out today."

Stiff Hombre records has announced the release of a Big Boys tribute album. The release is called Influence: A tribute to the Big Boys and includes contributions from Toys That Kill, Night Birds, Mind Spiders, Spokenest, Drunk Injuns, Tight Lips, Neighborhood Brats, Subtle Pills, Negative Degree, Riverboat Gamblers, The Distressers, The Nervous, Low Culture, Whiff, Ghost Knife, Ditch Patrol, Car 87, The Junk, Landline and Los Olvidados.
The release includes an introduction by Gary Floyd of the Dicks and is out now.
BraidedVeins (members of The Swellers, Kid Brother Collective, Empty Orchestra) will record their debut LP in late August with Marc Hudson (Taking Back Sunday, Saves The Day, others). The band is the first new project from Swellers members since the band announced their split.
The band's first EP is available as a free download from their Bandcamp profile.
Punknews is pleased to debut the new split EP by the Caffiends and Wolf-Face. The release is out August 7, 2014 via Swamp Cabbage Records/Anti Authority Records/Mooster Records, but you can check it out here, first.
On the split, both bands blast through a series of songs that draw as much from classic pop-punk as they do from punk's nastier first wave. The Caffiends' songs take the sort of Dead Milkmen-demented-kid-from-the-suburbs approach while Wolf-Face, a band whose members each have wolf faces and glasses, threatens to beat people up.
You can find both bands' tunes right here.
Stoner metal titans Sleep have released their first studio recording since 1996's Jerusalem, which was later edited and released as Dopesmoker. The new song is a 10-minute epic and is called "The Clarity." The song is being released as part of the "Adult Swim Single Series." After NPR asked the band if the song was a lyrical follow up to Dopesmoker, the band has described the song as "a lyrical follow-up to a lifetime of marijuana enjoyment."
There is no word yet if more new songs will follow, though on recent tours, the band has been playing songs which have never been recorded in the studio and may be newly written tunes.

The video was directed by Luke Jones. You can click Read More for the video.
