Only 150 first editions of Ricky Frankel's book now available!

Hey everyone, your perfect holiday gift has finally arrived! My book I'm Outta Here!: A Collection Of Interviews And Anecdotes From The Punk Scene (2014-2018) is officially out! For those of you that missed the original announcement, the book is a collection of about 45 interviews (approx. 440 pages) of punk artists that I have conducted over the years of my involvement in the punk scene. Along with these interviews will be never before published anecdotes and stories, professionally shot photographs, and more. Many of the interviews are from different outlets (not just Punknews) as well as some that have never been published in written form before. Some of the musicians that are featured in I'm Outta Here! include members of the Ramones, Rage Against The Machine, Swingin’ Utters, Off With Their Heads, X, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes, Good Riddance, The Flatliners, Masked Intruder, The Interrupters, The Dwarves, The Lawrence Arms, Direct Hit!, and many more. I'm Outta Here! is self-published and has a limited first edition of 150 copies. The book is now available to buy (signed or unsigned) right here!

One again, huge thanks to Aubin Paul for the opportunity to use Punknews as a platform for this. Without the ol' Org, Aubin, Adam White, John Gentile, the rest of the staff, and the readers, this would not have been possible. I truly appreciate it.

For more information about the book feel free to follow me on Twitter and/or Instagram.

The Aquabats

Watch the Aquabats play “Shark Fighter” at the 2018 Musack Carnival!

Today, we are excited to bring you a live video of The Aquabats playing "Shark Fighter!"

This is a raw and raucous version of the track as the band bends a new wave sheen over a pop-punk kick. The video was recorded at the Musack 2018 Carnival

Every year, Musack throws the Rock 'n' Roll Carnival in order to fund a program that has a mission of giving kids and teens a voice through music. All proceeds from the event go to providing guitar, drums, and other instruments to Musack programs in Compton, LA, Nantucket, Haiti, Appalachia, Cuba, Chattanooga, Australia, and Alaska. It'll be back again in 2019, so stay on the lookout. You can learn more about Musack here.

The vid was shot by Mitch Cleaver and Matt Rowbottom. Josh Roush (who's in production on a feature length documentary about actor Michael Parks) directed it. You can see the video below, right now!

Check out the new split by 69Enfermos and Symphony of Distraction!

Check out the new split by 69Enfermos and Symphony of Distraction!

Today, we are excited to debut the new split release by Brazil's 69Enfermos and California's Symphony of Distraction!

This is match made in Heaven… er… Mars. 69Enfermos play the classic form of rushing, melodic skate-punk. Symphony of Distraction respond with a side of distinctively Cali-pop punk. All around, there's a lot of riffs, a lot of melody, and a lot of homage to the classic Epi-Fat sound.

The album is out next week and you can pre-order it right here! Meanwhile, check out the whole thing below, right now!
