STREAM “FUCKMYLIFE666”: (Via SoundCloud)

Against Me Band PhotoAgainst Me! have announced their upcoming Winter 2014 headlining tour. Hitting the road in advance of the release of their highly-anticipated sixth full-length album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, the 22-date tour begins on Tuesday, December 31 in Pittsburgh, PA at the Altar Bar and will visit markets such as Cleveland, OH on Saturday, January 4, Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, January 9, Birmingham, AL on Friday, January 17, Nashville, TN on Sunday, January 19, and will culminate in a performance at the Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on Sunday, January 26. Support on the entire run will be provided by The Sidekicks and The Shondes, and more information on tickets can be found on Against Me!’s official website.

Against Me! have also recently released the first song from the upcoming full-length. Titled “FUCKMYLIFE666,” the track was recently released on Against Me!’s acoustic

True Trans EP but receives the full-band treatment on the upcoming album that will be released through the band’s own Total Treble label in North America on Tuesday, January 21 (Resist Records will release in Australia and Xtra Mile Recordings to the rest of the world.)

 

Transgender Dysphoria Blues is now available for pre-order through iTunes HERE, and those ordering the album will receive an instant download of “FUCKMYLIFE666” with their purchase. Additionally, a physical presale for the album can be found in the Total Treble webstore, which offers exclusive vinyl and bundles not available anywhere else.

 

Transgender Dysphoria Blues is the intense follow-up to the Against Me!’s previous full-length album, White Crosses, and stands as another major benchmark for the band and its career spanning 10+ years. Recorded at Studio 606, Earth Sound Studio, Motor Studio, Total Treble Studio and mixed by Billy Bush (Garbage, Muse, Tegan and Sara), Transgender Dysphoria Blues is an insightful and highly-provocative 10-song offering written by frontwoman Laura Jane Grace, whose material examines one’s grappling with gender dysphoria, the loss of a young friend and pure self discovery, as well as love and ultimate acceptance. Featuring Grace’s signature, explicit songwriting and dominant vocals, the album also features longtime guitarist/vocalist James Bowman, drummer Atom Willard and Fat Mike of NOFX on bass for “FUCKMYLIFE666” and “Unconditional Love.”

 

With its lineup firmly in place that includes new bassist Inge Johansson, Against Me! will be making the following appearances during December and January. Tour dates below.

Platinum sellers Ugly Kid Joe have come back after a long vacation, and they’re ready to rock harder than ever. The California band’s new EP, Stairway to Hell, is due on April 16th through MRI, and it contains songs that span the full repertoire of influences that made Ugly Kid Joe the soundtrack for young snowboarders, surfers, and keggers worldwide.

Watch the video for the single, “I’m Alright”, below.

 

Stairway to Hell track listing:

Devil’s Paradise
You Make Me Sick
No One Survives
I’m Alright

Another Beer
Cat In the Cradle (acoustic)
Would You Like To Be There (acoustic)
No One Survives (acoustic)
EPK (video)*

Whether it’s the hypnotic riffery of “Devil’s Paradise”, the melodic power-fueled darkness of “No One Survives” or the irrepressibly chuggin’ chorus of “I’m Alright,” Stairway to Hell makes it clear that Ugly Kid Joe has everything they started with, and have added fatter chops and a superior grip on songwriting to their arsenal.

Tour dates are to be announced soon so be sure to follow Ugly Kid Joe on Facebook, Twitter, and their official site to get the latest news on the band! Page links are provided below.

audio ‘stache: THE CULT Release New Studio Album “Choice of Weapon” (Cooking Vinyl/MRI/RED Distribution)

Iconic British rock band The Cult have released their new album Choice of Weapon on May 22nd via Cooking Vinyl/MRI, the group’s first studio album in five years!

Co-produced by long-time Cult collaborator and producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Bush) and Chris Goss (Queens of the Stone Age, U.N.K.L.E.), the album was written by founding members Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy. Choice of Weapon is aimed at the heart of The Cult’s loyal following, and according to the members, it reflects their current discontent with the destruction of the world’s eco systems, search for individual meaning against a tide of rampant materialism, narcissism and disconnected lives.

Read a recent interview from Rolling Stone to get a look into the making of the album. You can also watch the band’s live performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, here is “For The Animals,” “Wildflower” or watch the entire show!

“Offering catchy music with a twisted core, The Cult continue to thrive by sticking to their basic muse, and they are showing pretty much no signs of rust.” – Paste Magazine

Choice of Weapon is streaming week of release at AOL Spinner and is available digitally on iTunes, physically on Amazon and all other retailers. For tour, news and more information, follow The Cult online and visit www.thecult.us.

New album, Choice of Weapon, 5/22 through Cooking Vinyl/MRI!

The Cult are set to release Choice of Weapon, their ninth studio album, on May 22nd. The record is their first full-length work in five years, though the band has kept active by putting out “capsules” of new songs and live recordings in recent years. Co-produced by Chris Goss (Queens of the Stone Age, U.N.K.L.E.) and longtime collaborator Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith), Choice of Weapon was made in several studios, including the band’s own Witch Mountain as well as spots in New York City, Los Angeles and the California desert. Rolling Stone caught up with frontman Ian Astbury to talk about his inspiration for the new album, which addresses the many things he believes are poisoning contemporary culture.

Read more and preview ‘Lucifer’ from upcoming album Choice of Weapon (5/22) over at Rolling Stone. Get your free download on the band’s Facebook page.

In recent news, The Cult song ‘She Sells Sanctuary’ was heard around the nation during the Super Bowl in a Budweiser commercial to the tune of a Flo Rida mashup.  Check it out here.
