Red Scare unveils Direct Hit! collection (Exclusive First Look)

Posted by aubin on Monday, June 29, 2015 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Direct Hit! Red Scare will be releasing a collection of Direct Hit! material called More of the Same (Satanic Singles: 2010-2014). It's out August 21, 2015 on physical formats and a week early for you digital people. Vocalist Nick Woods adds:

Seemingly every Direct Hit! release from the band's inception until now has involved songs written by different people in and out of and graduated from the group, as performed by a different band of musicians, every time. This'll be our second release in a row featuring the same band, for the first time in Direct Hit-story (get it?), from which the middle period may be chronicled by these 11 songs, plus Brainless God . We expect a Nobel Peace Prize any day now.

Punknews Podcast: Episode 254

Posted by adam on Sunday, June 28, 2015 at 9:40 PM (EDT)
Podcast On episode 254 of the Punknews Podcast, John Gentile and Adam White are joined by our returning guest host Nikki of the Clash-worshipping Everything and the Kitchen Sink podcast. We discuss the Clash, of course, or at the very least their questionable Twitter doppelgangers, and revisit the big Apple Music debate in light of their post-Taylor Swift change of heart. We also discuss what state the Misfits will be in without Dez Cadena in the mix, as well as Neil Young feuding with the Donald over use of "Rockin' In The Free World" at a campaign rally.

This episode features music from Vancouver acts Tough Age and The Ballantynes as well as a special birthday song to celebrate Danzig's 60th.
