This week we'll be following up the Top 100 Albums of 2010-2019 with interviews with each participant, where we discuss their personal #1 picks of the decade. It is Thursday and we have one more day to go. Only two interviews today, but the second one is a long one.
PEARS have a busy 2020 ahead of themselves: a self-titled release is out today, it's their first LP in four years, and they've got a heavy touring schedule on the horizon.

Welcome back to the Punknews Saturday afternoon movie! Today we are thrilled to show Two Worlds by Andy Lefton of War//Plague!
In War//Plague, Lefton grinds out nasty, mean as hell crusty riffs. But, as a digital animator, Lefton's view is decidedly more hopefull. Often drawing from Speilberg, Lucas, and Henson, Andy makes films that scare as much as they delight, and are at once dark and optimistic.
Two Worlds, starts off with a robot crashing his ship and then follows the little guy as he tries to recover from the crash… but will he meet friend or foe in his new home, an uncharted wasteland? Watch the short film below to find out, and stick around for a short interview with Lefton himself! You can also check out Andy's other works here!
The new World/Inferno Friendship Society album is an accomplishment. It's the band's most multi-faceted, most genre hopping, most psychedelic release, and that's saying something for this band of circus-punk-anarchists who have already released albums about astral projection, Peter Lorre's tortured life, and summoning gourd-dieities from hell. All Borders are Porous to Cats tells the tale of a cat, that jsut happens to be in a hat, as he scurries away from the crushing manacles of a corrupt government that wants lock people in cages for simply being different… sound familiar? You can read all about it below.
