Media: Cinema Cinema: “Decades”

Posted by johng on Friday, September 19, 2014 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Image Punknews is excited to debut the new video by Cinema Cinema. The video is for the song "Decades," off the band's recently released A Night at the Fights album.

In the video, the band stomps around a warehouse while warping Ginn-style guitar spasms into the booming post-punk refrains. As they further destroy an already destroyed building, the pair reflects on the ravages of the decades and dangerous living. They talk about how horrible HIV is and then blame their parents for other things. This is all done while frontman Ev Gold twists out facial expressions borrowed from The Exorcist.

You can click read more for the video. Punknews spoke to the band earlier this week.

GWAR introduces new vocalist, Vulvatron

Posted by kira on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 5:00 PM (EDT)
Image This past weekend at Riot Fest, GWAR's new leading lady, Vulvatron, made her debut sharing lead vocal duties with reinstated vocalist Blothar (Mike Bishop). She's played by Kim Dylla. Wonderingsound reported:

Meet Vulvatron, a spiky purple Amazon whose massive (prosthetic) breasts occasionally shoot geysers of blood out onto her hapless audience. Vulvatron is not dancing, or breathing fire, or keeping the slaves in line (though one assumes she'll be adept at all three). For the first time since the departure of dancer and backing singer Slymenstra Hymen (Danielle Stampe) in 2000, GWAR has a female member, and she's the frontwoman.

GWAR's founding member, Dave Brockie, who acted as the group's ringleader Oderus Ungus, passed earlier this year.

Streams: Stray Bullets: “New Prisons”

Posted by brittany on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Stray Bullets Today's stream comes from Boston, MA-based Stray Bullets. We've got a stream of the band's new song, "New Prisons," from their forthcoming record Ghost Town Rockers, which is due out October 7, 2014 via Dying Scene Records. The song is about vocalist Jon Cauztik's experience during the Occupy protests.

I served as a Street Medic, taking shifts both in the medical tent in Dewey Square and at some of the protests that took place around the city, and things that I saw there profoundly changed my life. There have no doubt been protests of one sort or another since the beginning of language itself, but I've never heard of one that was supported by such vastly different demographics of the population. Black, White, Latino, Asian. From students to veterans, from the homeless to business owners. Union ironworkers camped out in tents next to transgender crust punks. Grandmothers from Brookline marching arm in arm with teenage rappers from Dorchester. All brought together by the same thing, all willing to listen to and engage with each other, all fighting for a common goal. I've been an American since the day I was born, but I was never proud to be an American until the things I saw and heard as part of Occupy Boston.

You can read Cauztik's entire explanation below. Pre-orders for Ghost Town Rockers are available here. You can find "New Prisons" on Stray Bullets' Punknews.org Profile
