BIO

Admittedly, we don’t know much about the mysterious Three Man Cannon, other than the fact that the four piece includes members of Tigers Jaw, Idiot Kid and King God. Public appearances have been limited and the band’s previous releases – 2010′s Nelson and the 2008 debut LP The Sound. The Fury. – have won a dedicated, albeit small fan base. Regardless, these five new tracks will undoubtedly be where 3MC makes its mark, with a sweet, slightly off-kilter sound that has the ability to incite raucous singalongs and bouts of foot stomping in one instant, and soothe the masses with bittersweet melodies and atmospheric flourishes the next. Imagine a folkier Modest Mouse … or maybe a more punk Mountain Goats and you get the idea.

Portland, OR’s Lee Corey Oswald is a different beast than its East Coast brethren, finding warmth in the hooky, blown-out fuzz rock and reverb-drenched riffs of yesteryear. Recorded and produced completely in analog by Kind Of Like Spitting’s Ben Barnett, these six new tracks revel in punk rock’s reckless abandon and the skewed pop harmonics of ’90s indie rock. The band originally started as an acoustic folk duo between Lee Ellis and Corey Ciresi, but the group has taken on many different incarnations. Never was that more apparent than in 2011′s Moon Songs, a full-length split into two camps: the electric side and the acoustic side. Lee Corey Oswald has grown quite a bit since then, traveling the US and touring with the likes of The Menzingers and Luther. The result is a confident blend of songwriting prowess and youthful exuberance that’s downright infectious.

Luther – On Tour

By , 13 October, 2011, No Comment

LUTHER – Fall Tour (OCT 14 – NOV 15)
——————————————————————————————————

* In support of Siblings & Sevens
* 12″ available now on Black Numbers
* CD available from UK label Disconnect Disconnect

——————————————————————————————————

Luther (Philadelphia, PA) are heading out on tour in support of the band’s newest release, Siblings & Sevens. Luther will be playing shows with an amazing itinerary of bands that includes Anti-Flag, Banner Pilot, Broadway Calls, Dead To Me, Spraynard, The Bouncing Souls, The Great Explainer, The Holy Mess, Timeshares and Tom May (The Menzingers).

Siblings & Sevens was released on 12″ vinyl via Black Numbers (Grey Area, Go Rydell, Banquets) in August. The vinyl is limited to 500 on three different colorways (100 x opaque blue / 200 x opaque white / 200 x opaque gold). A limited edition CD version is available from UK label, Disconnect Disconnect. Of course, Siblings & Sevens is also available digitally from Bandcamp, iTunes and other online retailers. For more information, go here.

You can still hit up a bunch of exclusive streams and downloads at various sites. Head over to Rock Sound to hear “This Is Like Fight Club”. Additionally, RCRD LBL premiered “There’s Always Money” and you can still download an exclusive mp3 for the song here. And don’t forget that “The Communion” is still streaming at Absolute Punk as well.

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. Coming out swinging, Luther have played over 30 shows, an east coast tour, and recorded a 12 inch with producer Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, The War on Drugs) within a four month period.

As always, if you’d like to attend a show or speak with the band, please drop me a line here.

By , 8 March, 2011, No Comment

BLACK NUMBERS Announce GREY AREA / GO RYDELL split 7″
——————————————————————————————————

* Record now available for Pre-Order
* Songs now available for pay-what-you-want download on Bandcamp
* Exclusive Alternative Press streams for Grey Area and Go Rydell
* Both bands playing Generic Insight Radio Fest

——————————————————————————————————

Black Numbers are stoked to announce the first recordings from legendary NYC pop punk veterans Grey Area in over ten years! Various members have had a part in Token Entry, Kill Your Idols, Warzone and Black Train Jack amongst others. After last releasing “Fanbelt Algebra” on Victory in 2000, Grey Area did successful reunions this past summer in Philly and NYC and then were surprise guests for last summer’s This is Hardcore Fest. Grey Area will be headlining Generic Insight Radio Fest and then heading over to Belgium for one show at Groezrock Festival.

Joining them on this split 7″ (limited to 500 – 100 clear, 150 red, 250 blue) will be Florida’s Go Rydell, who are following up their highly-acclaimed debut LP “The Golden Age” on Black Numbers. Go Rydell recently made the cut for AP’s 100 Bands You Need To Know in 2011. Mixing heartfelt lyrics with short bursts of punk rock fury to create a fun, positive atmosphere, Go Rydell’s dynamic take on melodic hardcore is ripe with conviction and a palpable sincerity. With a raw injection of energy and enthusiasm, Go Rydell push beyond its influences with supreme confidence.

Check out the exclusive streams over on Alternative Press for Grey Area and Go Rydell now.

The record is now available for Pre-Order. Anyone who orders the physical record will get the digital download ahead of the physical shipping date. In celebration of the release and GIR Fest, Black Numbers has made the songs available ahead of time. The digital version of the record is available now via Bandcamp for the next two weeks for a pay-what-you-want sliding scale (suggested donation is $4).

As mentioned, both bands will be making an appearance at Generic Insight Radio Fest, in Brooklyln, NY March 11 + 12 @ Party Expo. The Fest includes Grey Area, Go Rydell, Restorations, Iron Chic, Slingshot Dakota, Soul Control, Mikey Erg, Daytrader, Banquets, Static Radio NJ, The Saddest Landscape, We Were Skeletons, The Holy Mess, After The Fall, Caleb Lionheart, The Great Explainer, Timeshares, Snowing, Big Eyes, Nightmares For A Week and more.

Beartrap Bands @ FEST 9

By , 20 October, 2010, No Comment

BEARTRAP PR Bands Are FEST-ing!
——————————————————————————————————

• Catch our bands as they tour to FEST 9 in Gainesville, FL (Oct 29 – 31)
• Real question remains, “How many soused, bearded punks can one city hold?”

——————————————————————————————————

It’s that time of year again, where what feels like half the Beartrap Roster asks Will and I, “Can you send out a press release regarding our tour to the FEST?”

So instead of saying “yes” 18 separate times, we decided to compose one all-encompassing FEST 9 press release. It not only highlights when and where our bands are playing during the upcoming Halloween weekend, but all the shows surrounding these three debauched days in Gainesville, FL as well. It’s basically just a friendly heads up for anyone attending the No Idea-sponsored festival or living in towns through which the bands are touring.

Check out the relevant information below for these bands: After The Fall, Annabel, Banquets, Bars Of Gold, Billy Wallace, Campaign, Carpenter, Charles The Osprey, Franz Nicolay, Go Rydell, Grown Ups, imadethismistake, Junior Battles, One Win Choice, Pianos Become The Teeth, PJ Bond, Static Radio NJ and The Great Explainer.

If you’d like to speak with any of the bands or have any guest list requests, drop me a line here.

On a semi-related note, a handful of these outfits (Annabel, Banquets, Campaign, Junior Battles, One Win Choice, and PJ Bond) have contributed previously unreleased and rare material, demos and exclusive tracks for the the Pastepunk 12th Anniversary MP3 Compilation. Featuring 17 songs from the Beartrap PR roster, the comp is available for free download for the next month. Grab it here.

For fans of Hot Water Music, Latterman and Small Brown Bike, the Trenton, New Jersey quartet formed in 2008 and has risen to prominence within the Garden State’s thriving underground music scene. Smearing the lines between punk, hardcore and indie, The Great Explainer offers a progressive alternative to the typical punk rock fare. Look forward to dual contrasting vocals, complex yet aggressive guitar work and a powerfully locked in rhythm section.
