Hello everyone and welcome to Navel Gazing: your look back in the week in Punknews. I'm Brittany Strummer and I'll be your guide through some of the juiciest, most popular and otherwise noteworthy stories from the last seven days. Remember, every Punknews story is built from tips from our wonderful, good-looking readers, so get to submitting. Here's what got the strange, slow and old community talking this week:
- To celebrate Canada Day we created a mixtape comprised of songs from some of our favorite Canadian artists.
- 6131 Records unveiled plans to reissue the major label debut from Handsome which featured members from Jets to Brazil, Helmet, and Quicksand.
- Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! announced the dates for a solo tour in support of AM!'s latest album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, which the band finished tracking last week.
- Heartsounds released a video of what they're currently working on in the studio.
- After 6 years together Sharks decided to call it a day.
- AFI released yet another teaster for their upcoming album.
- Former drummer for The Ramones, Richie Ramone, unveiled plans for a solo album.
With that, we hand over this Sunday evening to the Punknews community, where anything is possible, from the next amusing-then-overwrought meme, to the creation of bands and message boards, to alienating sports chatter. So talk amongst yourselves, spin some tracks in the Navel Gazing turntable.fm room and we'll see you Monday morning
