Mudhoney to release 'Digital Garbage' LP

Mudhoney will release their new album on September 28 via Sub Pop Records. It's called Digital Garbage. Singer Mark Arm stated, "My sense of humor is dark, and these are dark times. I suppose it's only getting darker. I'm not on social media, so my experience is somewhat limited. But people really seem to find validation in the 'likes' - and then there's Facebook Live, where people have streamed torture and murder, or, in the case of Philando Castile, getting murdered by a cop." Hear the first single, "Paranoid Core," below.

Check out Swan Prince's new video “Disguise”

Punknews is pleased to bring you an exclusive premiere of the new video from Redditch UK quartet Swan Prince. The song, "Disguise," is the lead track off of the band's newest EP Never Look Back, which released last month as a name-your-price download on their Bandcamp page. Unlike the other three tracks on the album, this song takes a decidedly more poppy sound that belies the subject matter. As vocalist/guitarist Rachel Blewett notes below, that same tack was taken for the video itself:

Back From Hell with Satanic Surfers

Forming almost three decades ago in Sweden, Satanic Surfers have been serving up hard driving and melodic punk. After disbanding in 2007, the band returned for a few festivals in 2015. After making their return, Satanic Surfers released their new album Back From Hell in April of 2018. Back From Hell picks up right from where the band left off, which combines their classic fast and technical brand of skatepunk. While the release doesn’t abandon their classic sound, the album shows off a matured worldview. Punknews contributor Christopher Barrett got a chance to chat with guitarist Magnus Blixtberg about their reunion, writing a new record, trying to tour on a more part-time basis, and what he looked forward to with their upcoming appearance at the 77’ Montreal Festival later this month.
