Signals Midwest Recording New Album For Tiny Engines

By , 7 March, 2013, 1 Comment

SIGNALS MIDWEST - Recording New Album for Summer Release on Tiny Engines

• New LP coming Summer of 2013 on Tiny Engines
• Latitudes And Longitudes LP 2nd pressing pre-order available now
• March/April shows announced / Band playing Stay Sweet Fest
• New Album Details Coming Soon

——————————————————————————————————

Cleveland, OH’s Signals Midwest is set to begin recording their new LP this weekend. The band will once again record at Bad Racket in Cleveland. The new album is expected to be released this Summer on Tiny Engines (Tigers Jaw, Dikembe, Restorations, Run, Forever). This will be the follow up to Signals Midwest’s highly-acclaimed sophomore album, Latitudes And Longitudes, which came out in the Fall of 2011. The 2nd pressing is now available for Pre-Order.

Frontman Max Stern had this to say about the new record:

I like making records because they’re both a reflection of where a band has been and where they’re at in that particular moment. Geographically, musically, mentally, – the setting and experience come through one way or another. I wrote these songs in a living room in Portland, in a basement in Brooklyn, at a bus station in Tel Aviv, in an attic in Cleveland, and in the back of a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan that may have been pretty much anywhere in the continental United States. Two years to the day after making our last record, we’re going back into the same studio to create something new. Contained within those two years have been incredible highs, crushing lows, long tours, practices, arguments, inside jokes, spectacular views, friends and lovers lost and found, and everything else that life seems to accumulate regardless of whatever the “plan” seems to be. I hope some of that experience shines through on this record, if only just to see where we’re at and where we might end up.

Rarely do you come across a young band that startles you with such inherent quality. While Cleveland, Ohio’s Signals Midwest might be rooted in the ethos of punk rock the band quickly transcends the tag both musically and lyrically on their sophomore album, Latitudes And Longitudes. Paying tribute to the continual growth of legends like Small Brown Bike and Fairweather while echoing the emotional tones of modern bands such as The Menzingers, Signals Midwest provide a unique perspective that resides firmly outside the punk-by-the-numbers formula. Call it post-pop/punk if you will.

Signals Midwest will be playing a few shows in March and April including Stay Sweet Fest in Richmond, VA. The band will hit the road hard this Summer in support of the upcoming LP.

Lipona Joins Disconnect Disconnect Records

LIPONA Joins Disconnect Disconnect Records

Networks: New Full-Length Out June 18th on 12″ + Digital formats
Alternative Press Premier: Exclusive song stream for “Breakthrough

——————————————————————————–

Disconnect Disconnect Records (This Is A Standoff, Luther, Jet Market) is excited to welcome Lipona to its growing roster. The punk label will issue the Tallahassee, FL outfit’s newest full-length, Networks, on June 18th, 2012 in the UK, while Lipona will self-release the album Stateside.

Networks will be available digitally and as a 12″ LP, with the latter being limited to 250 on white vinyl. Stay tuned for pre-orders, which will launch in a few weeks.

To celebrate today’s announcement, Disconnect Disconnect and Lipona have teamed up with Alternative Press for an exclusive debut of the song “Breakthrough.” To stream the first single from Networks, go here.

Networks is the follow-up to Lipona’s critically acclaimed 2009 EP, Pigeonholed (available for free download), as well as the band’s debut long-player, Atlas (2008). While previous releases have been outward-looking and pseudo-philosophical, Networks finds the four piece treading more personal waters, such as coping with loss and the delicate balance of musical ambition with the transition into adulthood.

Lipona’s sound, however, remains firmly anchored in the technically precise, fiery punk rock that first attracted us to the Florida quartet nearly four years ago. Scorching riffs and a pummeling rhythm section remind the listener that thrash-y, hardcore-inspired skatepunk is alive and well, yet front man Yamil Velez’s vocals soar through shimmering choruses and introspective instrumental passages. Perhaps Lipona’s most noteworthy attribute is its ability to temper the relentless, forward-moving attack with a seemingly unending infusion of melody and atmosphere. Simply put, Networks is the continuing evolution of Lipona’s inspiring, progressive hybrid-punk sound.

Homelife – Announce Debut LP on Black Numbers/Bermuda Mohawk / Song Premiere / Pre-Order Now

By , 18 April, 2012, No Comment

HOMELIFE – Announce Debut LP on Black Numbers / Bermuda Mohawk / Now Available For Pre-Order
——————————————————————————————————

* Translation to be released 5/15/12
* Pre-Order available now
* “Viewfinder” streaming exclusively at Alternative Press
* Artwork/Tracklisting revealed

——————————————————————————————————

Lansing, MI’s Homelife is excited to announce their debut full-length, Translation, will be released by Black Numbers (Grey Area, Go Rydell, Luther, PJ Bond) and Bermuda Mohawk (Cheap Girls, Tin Horn Prayer, imadethismistake) May 15, 2012.

The 12″ vinyl for Homelife’s Translation will be limited to 500 on black vinyl and is available for Pre-Order now. The first single from Translation, “Viewfinder”, is streaming exclusively on Alternative Press right now!

Carrying the torch for rugged Midwest bands into the next generation of punk rock, Homelife is expanding upon its forebears with 2012 full-length debut, Translation. Since forming in 2009 in the same rugged plains and college towns around Lansing, MI as like-minded acts such as Small Brown Bike and Cheap Girls, the band’s debut full-length album marks not only a progression for Homelife and its members’ roots in hardcore acts, but for the genre itself.

Translation follows up Homelife’s 2011 split with Bike Tuff as well as their 2009 Demo. Both can be downloaded for free here.

While the members’ hardcore background is still on display in some aspects of Translation (most of the songs clock-in the 2:30 range and sound best played LOUD), the sparkling and sharply-cut dynamics on display have set the ideal background for Weston’s unique delivery and lyrics that throwback to the sincerity of 90’s favorites such as Jawbreaker, Knapsack (whom the band covers here), and The Promise Ring. Taking a number of sonic risks, beyond what its peers may have been comfortable with, represented a monstrous swing from Homelife and a clear homerun with Translation, which is almost certain to gain traction one of the best surprise debut LP’s in punk rock that 2012 will have to offer.

Luther – SXSW Tour

LUTHER – SXSW Tour (MAR 10 – MAR 24)
——————————————————————————————————

* In support of Siblings & Sevens & 4-Way Split
* Both releases available now on Black Numbers
* Shows with Hot Water Music, The Menzingers, Cheap Girls, Braid, The Sidekicks, etc.

——————————————————————————————————

Luther (Philadelphia, PA) are heading out on tour in support of the band’s newest release, the 4-Way Split with The Copyrights, Grey Area & The Reveling released on Black Numbers recently. The tour will also be in support of their 2011 release, Siblings & Sevens. Luther will be playing shows with an outstanding itinerary of bands that includes Hot Water Music, The Menzingers, Cheap Girls, Braid, The Sidekicks, Signals Midwest and Captain, We’re Sinking.

You can check out the full album stream of the 4-Way Split on Punknews now as well as the exclusive song stream for Luther’s “The Door Is A Penthouse” which is streaming at AMP.

Forming in late 2010 Luther bring back memories of a simpler and more organic time in rock music. While making no attempts to hide their punk rock roots Luther replace the overt aggression flooding the current world of punk with passion and a sincere sense of urgency. Living in South Philadelphia, Luther’s exposure to the city’s diverse music scene creates a varied sound that results in a refreshing mixture of indie, punk rock, post-hardcore and pop. Luther’s brand of songwriting comes with a natural nervousness that is layered with harmonies and an abstract approach to lyrics, all on top of a driving and unified rhythm section.

Banquets – New Video Premier at Alternative Press

BANQUETS – Releases Video For “Sometimes A Wolf”
——————————————————————————————————

* Premiering exclusively at Alternative Press
* Top Button, Bottom Shelf available now
* Upcoming Winter shows

——————————————————————————————————

BANQUETS (Jersey City, NJ) has unveiled the video for “Sometimes A Wolf,” a track from the band’s debut full-length, Top Button, Bottom Shelf, on Black Numbers (Grey Area, Go Rydell, Luther, PJ Bond). The video was directed by Kevin Slack (The Gaslight Anthem, Dave Hause). You can watch the exclusive premier of the video courtesy of Alternative Press.

Top Button, Bottom Shelf is available now. The vinyl was limited to 500 on three different colorways (100 Pink w/ Black Swirl, 150 Blue w/ Silver Swirl, 250 Yellow w/ Blue Swirl). A limited edition CD version is also available here. You can download Top Button, Bottom Shelf for $6 at the Black Numbers’ Bandcamp. Of course, the album is also available digitally from iTunes and other online retailers.

You can still head over to Rock Sound to hear/download “The Sound Of Money”. RCRD LBL has an exclusive mp3 for the track “Fireplug” as well. Additionally, you can also stream the track “Forever Bender” at Punknews.org.

Top Button, Bottom Shelf blows all expectations and pre-conceived notions out of the water. The ten songs that make up the band’s debut full-length build and hold the momentum for an incredibly rewarding and all too short 25 minutes. Waiting for some lull or filler to catch your breath is fruitless as the band delivers gem after gem. Of course you can talk of the band’s pedigree, Banquets lead singer Travis Omilian was the original singer for Let Me Run and other members have played in bands such as Outsmarting Simon, Static Radio NJ, The Stand In and The Banner, but all that undersells just how quickly Banquets have grown into their very own exciting entity. No doubt the past experiences served them well but Banquets have upped the ante for all melodic pop/punk rock with Top Button, Bottom Shelf.

Banquets has four shows on the horizon with Ignite, Grey Area, Saves The Day, Senses Fail and Ensign.

 

UPCOMING SHOWS

The Reveling – Nervous Energies Session Posted

• Featuring two songs from Tributaries (out on Black Numbers)
Test Pressing Contest: win limited-edition vinyl & more
• SIRIUS XM Takeover on Faction’s DIY Radio (9/18)
Record release show this Thursday (9/8)

——————————————————————————–

The Reveling (Brooklyn, NY) recently teamed up with Nervous Energies to film an acoustic performance of two new songs from its debut full-length Tributaries. The session, which features the tracks “Charlotte Thompson” and “Unglued,” are now posted on the site and can be viewed here.

Released by Black Numbers (Grey Area, Static Radio NJ, Go Rydell, PJ Bond) earlier this summer, Tributaries was pressed on both CD and 12″ vinyl formats, with the latter being limited to 500 on three colorways (100 x clear / 150 x green / 250 x blue) and featuring gatefold jackets and an mp3 download card. The record is also available digitally from Bandcamp, iTunes and other online retailers. For more information or to grab a copy, go here.

On that note, The Reveling is currently sponsoring a contest for limited, hand-numbered vinyl test pressings of Tributaries, as well as the CD version of the record. Enter now and the band will choose three random winners on September 12th.

In other news, at 8pm on September 18th, The Reveling will host DIY Radio on Faction (SIRIUS XM Channel 41). The band’s guest spot will feature an hour of great independent and punk music, including songs from RVIVR, Dead To Me, Make Do And Mend, Grey Area, Red City Radio, Banquets and many more.

Finally, the official record release show for Tributaries is happening tomorrow (9/8) in NYC at The Local 269. Details below. As always, if you’d like to attend the show or speak with the band, drop me a line here.

Record Release Show
——————————————————————————————————

SEP 08 – New York, NY @ The Local 269, 269 E Houston St, 7pm, $7, 21+ w/ Luther, Nightmares For A Week, William Manning

Recorded by Alex Newport (Frank Turner, At The Drive-In, Rival Schools, Samiam) at Big Blue Meenie and Futureshock Studios, and mastered by Jeff Lipton (Arcade Fire, Dead Milkmen, Piebald, Sebadoh), Tributaries features 10 tracks of propulsive, highly infectious working-class punk rock that is as catchy and immediate as it is textured and nuanced. Much like The Reveling’s well-received 2009 EP, 3D Radio, this new full-length is anchored by a punchy rhythm section and plenty of throw-your-fists-in-the-air anthems. Still, Tributaries finds the band in top songwriting form, tighter and more cohesive than ever, with an even greater emphasis on the soaring harmonies that made The Reveling so irresistible in the first place.
