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.

Punknews is pleased to debut the new EP by Pittsburgh, PA's Fake Grave. On their self-titled release, the band, which includes members of Divorce and Killing Thing, takes distanced cold of the Pixies and mashes it up with some spastic, jagged musicianship. There's a little bit of alt-rock here, a little bit of emo, a little bit of punk and they all collapse together into a spiraling, beautiful mess.
The release is out today and you can order the 7-inch here. Or, you can get the cassette here.
Meanwhile, you can stream the whole release on the band's Punknews.org Profile. You can click read more for tour dates.

Punknews is extremely excited to announce that famed agit-punks Really Red are going to reissue their entire catalog. Really Red made a name for themselves in the early '80s Texas scene by fusing a post-punk texture into the hardcore punk scene, espousing a radically leftist view point, and playing alongside bands like The Dicks and Big Boys.
Well, on January 20, Alternative Tentacles Records will release a three volume set comprising every single officially released Really Red track, along with some never before released tunes. The collection will be sold as a two CD set or as three individual vinyl records.
Volume 1: Teaching You The Fear includes the band's first LP. Volume 2: Rest In Pain is the band's second LP that has been out of print for 30 years. Volume 3: News Strings For Old Puppets collects the band's singles as well as unreleased tracks, including the "Modern Needs" and "Crowd Control" singles as well as a never-released track that has survived only on a cassette found in Jello Biafra's personal collection. The entire set was remastered by Jello Biafra himself.
Plus, we've got an extra little treat. Right now, almost two months before the release date, we're streaming two of the band's remastered tracks. You can check out "Teaching You the Fear" and "Too Political" on the band's Punknews.org Profile.

Punknews is excited to debut the new album by Legendary Wings. The LP is called Do You See and it's a real barnstormer. The band takes Ramones-core speed and chugging and then completely rips the whole thing apart with messy, garage rock distortion and just a smidgen of Weezer-ish balladry. The album rocks up front but has soul at the edge of every riff.
The release will be out in the next few weeks via Dirtnap Records. Ordering information is here. Meanwhile, you can listen to the whole thing right now on the band's Punknews.org Profile
