Mischief Brew releases details on new LP, out on Alternative Tentacles

Posted by johng on Monday, March 2, 2015 at 7:00 PM (EST)
Mischief Brew Punknews is thrilled to report that Mischief Brew have released details about their new album. The album will be called This is Not for Children. It will be released in late May 2015 on legendary punk label Alternative Tentacles Records. The band produced the record alongside Steve Roche, who previously worked with the band on 2006's Songs from Under the Sink. Mischief Brew members and associates appearing include Erik Petersen, Shawn St. Clair, Christopher Peterson, Doc Kulp, Denise V and World/Inferno Friendship Society's Rebecca Schlappin. Speaking to Punknews, Mischief Brew frontman Erik Petersen said:

The Stone Operation was a traveler's record, spanning worldwide, taking you everywhere from Paris to Dallas to Romania to Nevada City. This Is Not For Children is more home-based, using Philly and the state of PA as the backdrop, a running theme throughout. This record hunkers down at the South Philly dive bar around the corner from the practice space and shares stories of home, deaths of friends, gentrification, squatting, coal mining, baseball, working, drinking, and horror movies... yet we think any person in any city will relate to it. It's also simpler in instrumentation: less chaotic ornamentation, not as much clanging and banging. No banjos, more punk, less "Gypsy"...if you will.

Streams: Mean Jeans: “RU Mental”

Posted by johng on Monday, March 2, 2015 at 4:00 PM (EST)
Mean Jeans Punknews is mega-excited to stream the new single off the upcoming Mean Jeans singles compilation. The track is called "RU Mental" and finds the band blasting out a lovably boneheaded stomp while they sing about being insane and drinking liquor. The sugary "ooo-ooohs!" added on top of the whole thing make this slice of nihilism feel like a party.

The track is off the upcoming Singles release due out March 24, 2015 on Dirtnap Records. You'll be able to buy it here. But, until then, you can hear the kicking "RU Mental" on the band's Punknews.org Profile.
