Streams: World War IX: 'If One of These Bottles Should Happen to Fall'

Posted by johng on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Image Punknews is pleased to debut the new EP by World War IX. On the new release, they make it clear that they love booze and it's called If One of These Bottles Should Happen to Fall. The EP is five tracks of loud, energetic, sloppy punk where the band sings about getting wasted. Though, if you listen closely, the band seems to salute and decry the party lifestlye in the same breath... Also, they're releasing a comic book that coincides with the release! The EP is out May 12, 2015 and you can pre-order it here.

Meanwhile, you can stream the whole thing right now on their Punknews.org Profile. You can also download a preview of the comic book right here.

Videos: Anti-Flag: “Sky Is Falling”

Posted by aubin on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 3:30 PM (EDT)
Anti-Flag Anti-Flag have posted a new video for "Sky is Falling." The song will appear on American Spring which is out May 26, 2015. The song and video concern drone strikes and the band adds:

We release this song and video days after President Obama apologized for a drone strike that inadvertently killed an American and an Italian being held captive by al Qaeda in Pakistan. President Obama did the right thing by apologizing to the victims and their families. This onslaught of aggression is sold to the American people as a surgical strike program that combats terrorism and makes the U.S. safer, when its net total result is neither.

Matt Skiba hopes Blink-182 gig will be a permanent one

Posted by aubin on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 2:30 PM (EDT)
Image Though he's not hurting for projects -- with Alkaline Trio, Matt Skiba and the Sekrets and now Blink-182 -- Matt Skiba is hoping his gig in Blink-182 is a long term one. In an interview with Alternative Nation, he said as much:

I’m about to go on an Alkaline Trio tour for a couple months. There’s some time and some things that those guys need to figure out before we can start saying I’m a permanent member. But that is a hope of mine. If we’re discussing recording an album, I think that seals the deal.

Skiba is replacing guitarist Tom Delonge, who has had a pretty acrimonious split with his former band.
