Punknews Exclusive: Planes Mistaken for Stars to tour, reissue 'Mercy''

Posted by johng on Friday, April 24, 2015 at 9:00 AM (EDT)
Image This morning, after months of mysterious postings, post-hardcore titans Planes Mistaken for Stars have announced that they are going to reissue 2006's Mercy LP. Punknews is also excited to debut a new video about the band and the reissue. The video is called We Do As We Must, Together... and is described as a "testimonial" about the band and the re-release of the Mercy album. In the micro-film, Ryan Patterson of Coliseum, Nate Newton of Converge and Jeremy Bolm of Touché Amoré, talk about the influence and importance of the band. There are also snippets of some remastered Mercy tracks.

Mercy will be re-released by Deathwish Inc. on July 14, 2015. The new version has revamped packaging and was remastered from the original 1/2” tapes by Brad Boatwright at Audiosiege. To support the release, the band is also kicking off a tour in July. You can see the short film and live dates below.

Interviews: Sean Hart and Robert Selander (Tartar Control)

Contributed by DesertBurst92. Posted by johng on Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Tartar Control The Mormon hardcore punk trio Tartar Control, composed of Sean Hart, Robert Selander and Robot, have been spreading the good word of The Lord and the great benefits of good oral hygiene to the Southern California punk rock scene since they self-released their first album, Holy Crap!, in 2011.

For those of you who are new to Tartar Control, just know that they are a very visual band. The “Jesus Is Love” video will give you what you need to know. And then if you can see them live, do it (especially is you plan on attending Punk Rock Bowling)! Just check out their their full live sets online.

Four years after Tartar Control released Holy Crap! , they finally self-released a new album called We Forgive You earlier this month. I, Ricky Frankel, reviewer, podcast panelist and occasional interviewer drove down to The Doll Hut in Anaheim, California, where the “Jesus Is Love” music video was filmed, coincidentally, to interview Sean and Robert outside of the sketchy and potentially haunted hotel that was near the venue before they performed that night. Just know that I was pretty much laughing during the whole interview, but I spared you all from having to read a ton of “hahahas” throughout it.
