According to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, a snail has been named after Joe Strummer. The snail is called A. strummeri. Shannon Johnson, a researcher at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, explained “Because they look like punk rockers in the 70s and 80s and they have purple blood and live in such an extreme environment, we decided to name one new species after a punk rock icon.”
Bad Cop/Bad Cop have finished recording their first full-length. The album was recorded at Hurley HQ and it should be released in April 2015 on Fat Wreck Chords.
Earlier this year, Alkaline Trio took their full discography on tour, playing all their albums in three different cities. Consisting of individual four-night residencies, the Trio will bring their full-album shows next year to eight more cities, including Denver, Philadelphia, Orlando and San Francisco. You can see the dates after the jump.
A small number of pre-sale tickets are already on sale, with general sale tickets available starting Thursday, Dec. 18. The band's last full-length release, My Shame Is True, was released on Epitaph in 2013.

Punknews is pleased to debut the new self-titled release by Stay Clean Jolene. The band takes the gruff, ragged delivery of Leatherface and kicks out messy, energetic tunes. It's out Today on Dead Broke / Drunken Sailor / Eager Beaver / Rad Girlfriend/Bombed Out records... that's right, five labels feel that this release is so good that they wanted to put it out. You can get it here, here, here, and here.
Before that, you can hear the whole album on the band's Punknews.org Profile
The Exploited are now working on a new album. The release will be out via Nuclear Blast records and is expected to be released in summer 2015. This will be the first Exploited release since the on-stage heart attack of frontman Wattie Buchan and also the fist since 2003's Fuck the System..
The band stated, "It was very important for us that Wattie cures completely. Now he's recovered and we can go on working with new power. We're totally hooked to enter the studio to record new songs, and, of course, we're thrilled to play the upcoming live shows. Watch out / get ready, THE EXPLOITED is back and better than ever!"
