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.
Equal Vision Records' Set It Off have posted the video for "Ancient History."

On this episode of the Punknews Podcast, Tom Crandle, Adam White and John Gentile chat about Marky Ramone's new book, Sleater-Kinney's No Cities To Love, the upcoming Gallows record, Jeff Rosenstock's new LP, and what an H.R. show is like in 2015. All this we break down the punk music listening audience into two main buying personas: Tommy Microchip and Jimmy Leatherbag. Each is a horrible person.
This episode features music from Hivehead and Black Lungs.

Jade Tree Records ended the week with the announcement that they've signed Orlando, FL / Philadelpha PA's Direct Effect. There's no word yet on when the band's first full length release for the label will arrive.
Direct Effect last put out Sunburn in 2014 on Tiny Engines and followed it up with a digital EP released on Bandcamp in February. The group is touring Europe this month with Swain (formally This Routine Is Hell). You can find details over at jadetree.com.
This is the third recent signing for Jade Tree, as they added Dogs On Acid and Spraynard to their roster earlier in the year.
