Today, Punknews is super thrilled to stream Sharkanoid's debut LP, the timely named Have a Great Summer.
Composed of Dan Potthast of Mu330 and Rick Johnson of Mustard Plug, the band puts their pedigree to use and comes out swinging on this energetic release. There are smashing riffs, Elvis Costello inspired love tunes, spastic refrains, and a song about pillow fights. This is pop-punk that keeps something weird in the background at all times.
The album is out October 7, 2014 via Community Records. You can pre-order this bad boy here. Meanwhile, you can hear the whole thing on the band's Punknews.org Profile

Joyce Manor's stance on stage diving was made clear last week at two different shows. The first, in Jacksonville, FL - where frontman Barry Johnson stopped mid-song to bring the stage-dive offender onstage -- and then on Friday in Houson, TX Johnson reportedly stated at the beginning of the show that they would not tolerate any stage dives, when a fan did stage dive, he called them out.
The INTERNET has a lot of opinions about stage diving. The annual hardcore festival This is Hardcore trolled with a shirt design and then later posted "Joyce Manor jokes aren't funny anymore." In contrast, Joyce Manor has gotten support from various other bands including Candy Hearts, Balance and Composure and Code Orange (see below).
Johnson has also apologized for his reaction at Friday's show on the band's Facebook page stating:

Pentimento announced today that they will begin recording their upcoming sophomore LP with Paul Levitt (Circa Survive, All Time Low, Have Mercy). The release is still untitled and does not have a release date. Pentimento's drummer, Mike Hansen, told Punknews exclusively:
Paul Levitt approached us about the idea of doing a record, and it couldn't have come at a better time. We were super lucky to cross paths with him, because we knew what we needed for the next record was a change, and his production is great. We couldn't stay at home and do another record, the idea didn't sit right, not for this at least.. We'll be living in the studio we're recording at for an entire month, which is something we've never done and is one of the most exciting part. It will allow us to purely focus on making the best record we can make at this point.
