The “red cloud” variant pictured will only be available at a show he plays in Richmond, Va. on Friday, August 5 (more on that here).
Fat Wreck Chords Repressed Frenzal Rhomb’s Incredible Smoko at the pet food factory. Grease doesn’t usually reveal its colored variants, but my super official sources tell me that’s what this pressing looks like. Take your copy here.
UK melodic punks Darko just announced a new EP titled sparkled. It’s due out on October 21 and you can pre-order it here. The first single “Cruel to Be” is really good; Check out the music video below!
Zia Records has a new exclusive variant of NOFX’s Punk in Drublic, limited to 500 copies on colored vinyl “Transparent Beer With Red Splatter”. You understand here.

Now that all the cool stuff has been covered, here’s what I listened to… Saving money by not buying every new release gave me a chance to dig up some stuff I haven’t played in a while. moment. The first of this week was Much The Same’s Dropouts never win, a highly underrated punk skate record that will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year. MxPx The moment that always passes from last year’s box set also got some playing time. I also revisited one of my favorite Murderburgers records The 12 Habits of Highly Defective Peopleand the fantastic Civil War Rust debut LP pleasure and loneliness.
