Tegan And Sara

Tegan and Sara to release early years memoir

Tegan And Sara are going to release a book covering their earliest years up through High school. It's called High School and it’s due out September 24, 2019. The sisters switch writing each chapter. They described the book as “How did you start your band? When did you know that you were gay? What were you like before Tegan and Sara? We have spent 20 years answering those complicated questions with simple answers. Writing High School gives us the opportunity to tell the intricate stories that shaped our relationship as sisters, musicians, and queer girls.” It will be out via Farrar, Straus & Giroux’s MCD division in the United States, via Simon & Schuster in Canada and via Virago in the UK. The band released Love You to Death in 2016.

NOFX relaunches 'Punk in Drublic' Fest in Europe

NOFX relaunches 'Punk in Drublic' Fest in Europe

Last year, Stone Brewing Company and NOFX had a partnership where they released a Punk in Drublic beer and the traveling festival Punk in Drublic fest. However, that partnership crumbled when Stone brewing cut ties with Nofx and removed Nofx from the festival after comments the band made at Punk Rock Bowling 2018. Now, Nofx, sans any brewing partners, has launched a Punk in Drublic Fest that will hit 11 cities in Europe. The Festival appears to be directed by Nofx's Fat Mike himself.

The list of bands playing includes NOFX, Bad Religion, Lagwagon, Less Than Jake, and The Bombpops. On select dates Anti-Flag, Millencolin, Mad Caddies, The Interrupters, The Real McKenzies, Get Dead, and The Lillingtons will join the festival respectively as well. Punk In Drublic Fest Europe is scheduled to May 2019. You can see the list of dates below.
