Posted by kira (g+) on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
The Reaganomics As part of the 5 bands in 5 days, Red Scare 10-year anniversary announcements, we're happy to report that The Reaganomics are the newest addition to the lineup. They'll be joining The Falcon, Teenage Bottlerocket, Masked Intruder, The Lillingtons, Direct Hit!, The Methadones, Elway, The Brokedowns, and more still TBA. Reaganomics frontman Greg Alltop stated:

Most of the bands that have been/are on Red Scare are the reason we started The Reaganomics and we are thrilled to get super drunk with them, compare beards, try on each others flannels and see who's wearing the dirtiest Chuck Taylors. Our plan for the show is to get sloppy drunk, play a few Nomix, cover some old Metallica songs, and hope the Cobra Skulls are gonna play. One might say we're "stoked".

Tickets are available here for the October 25 celebration in Chicago, IL.

Media: The Number Ones: “Girl”

Posted by johng (g+) on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 3:30 PM (EDT)
Image Punknews is pleased to debut "Girl" by The Number Ones.

The track is a classic slice of power-pop-punk. The band yearns for that "one special girl" the way only young men can. But, despite their lovesickness, the band keeps a fire in their coals with a jangly, but driving, backbeat. The Undertones would be proud.

The band's self-titled album is out August 5 via Deranged Records. Pre-orders are here. Meanwhile, you can click Read More for the tune.

Misfits, Jello Biafra added to 2014 Gwar-B-Q

Contributed by alex101. Posted by mark on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
The MisfitsWith less than a month to go, it has been announced that the Misfits have been added to this year's Gwar-B-Q. Bassist/vocalist (and sole remaining original member) Jerry Only will also participate in a 'VIP Celebrity Meet & Meat' alongside others such as Ice-T, Bam Margera, Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed), as well as your Galactic Overlords themselves, GWAR.

Further, A "viking funeral" for the band's late frontman, Dave "Oderus Urungus" Brockie, will be held a day prior to the GWAR-B-Q at the same location. Jello Biafra will serve as the viking funeral's master of ceremonies. Reportedly, Oderus' body will be set ablaze on the "SS Boat," which, of course, is the craft that the proto-GWAR band Death Piggy would often ride onto the stage. Jello Biafra starred alongside GWAR in their Skullhedface film.

The Gwar-B-Q will be held at Hadad's Lake in Richmond, VA on August 16th and feature performances from Body Count, Hatebreed, Revocation and many more. Brockie was found dead by his roommate earlier this year.

Full details of the event can be found at the official Gwar-B-Q site.
