Rising feminist punk outfit War on Women are gearing up to release their sophomore album, Capture the Flag, on April 13th via Bridge Nine. Much like 2015's incendiary, eponymous debut, the new album - which they cut with Jawbox mastermind and area legend J Robbins - acts as an ear-splitting extension of the band's staunch feminist ideals. Rather than include the usual gang vocals, the band say they chose to "cultivate the singular voices of women who have devoted their lives to riling against the powers that be." One of those voices belongs to riot-grrrl icon Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, Julie Ruin), who gives a screaming assist on the roiling "YDTMHTL" (short for "You don't tell me how to live"), a track penned in opposition of cat-callers, slut-shamers, politicians, and worst and most insidiously of all, garden-variety misogynists. Capture the Flag preorders are live now at this location, including an "workbook" edition featuring lyric sheet and song dissections, relevant quotes, a reading list, and more.

Comeback Kid is a Canadian punk band from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Formed in 2000, the band is signed to Victory Records. Their name comes from a headline in a newspaper about hockey player, Mario Lemieux coming back to the NHL. The band was formed in 2002 by Andrew Neufeld and Jeremy Hiebert who were both members of the band Figure Four, which is currently on hiatus. They were joined by their friends Scott Wade and Kyle Profeta, but CBK was originally intended only to be a side project. Their initial popularity was mainly due to word of mouth within the hardcore scene.

ALTERNATIVE TV



















"the image has cracked"
Year:  1978
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Deptford Fun City
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk  Rock

















As a vocalist, ATV took an unknown radio disc jockey and editor of one of the first punk fanzines, "Sniffin' Glue", started the band in March 1977 with Alex Ferguson on guitar, Micky Smith (and later Tyrone Thomas and then Dennies Burns) on bass, John Towe (and later Chris Bennett) on drums. The singles Love Lies Limp (Sniffing Glue, 1977), Knights of the Future/ Alternatives to Normal Eating (Red Ronnie's Bazar, 1977) and How Much Longer/ You Bastard (Deptford Fun City, november 1977) heralded a new era for British rock music, an era that would soon revel in the modernist sounds of The Clash, The Ruts or Magazine. Ferguson had already left by this time. ATV's songs were melodic and complex, although they still boasted punk's angry "take-no-prisoners" attack. The Image Has Cracked (Deptford Fun City, 1978) is a milestone of that era, as are the singles Life After Life/ Life After Dub (Deptford Fun City, 1978), Life/ Love Lies Limp (Deptford Fun City, 1978) and Action Time Vision/ Another Coke (Deptford Fun City, 1978). But the band was falling apart. Only Perry and the bassist were left on the album Vibing Up the Senile Man (Deptford Fun City, 1979), a much more experimental album at the border between free-jazz and electronica, while the market also received a couple of live albums and a bootleg or two. The last single was The Force Is Blind/ Lost in a Room (Depford Fun City, 1979). ATV split up in 1981 but reunited late 80's decade, with a regular activity until nowadays. Despite ATV is not a militant political band, their lyrics have always showed a certain interest related to political conscious, social issues, against prejudices, etc.

PIG DESTROYER




















"book burner"
Year:  2012
Country:  US
City:  Washington, D.C.
Label:  Relapse
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  19
Time:  31 min.
Lyrical themes:  social issues, politics
Genre:  rock
Style:        Grindcore
















Pig Destroyer was formed by guitarist Scott Hull aside from his other major grindcore band Agoraphobic Nosebleed. The reason for forming Pig Destroyer is to bring back what "grindcore should be". The explanation behind the name of the band was a story in which the members were waiting in line to go on a roller coaster when they were thinking of the "most absurd punk rock name they could come imagine." They thought of Cop Killer and Cop Destroyer, but then thought of Pig Destroyer; a less-obvious name than the other two. At the time they were more political and it made the most sense to them, but now they claim it's just the name of the band. For a very long period of time, Pig Destroyer never had a bass player, nor did they use bass in their music. They went without a bass player in their entire career up until October of 2013 where John Jarvis was incepted into the band. Before 2013, the only ever exception was the recording of a live gig with a bass player for the bonus part of their song "Terrifyer". Contrary to popular belief, Scott Hull did not collaborate with Tribes of Neurot on the album "Static Migration" under the pseudonym "Walking Time Bombs", this pseudonym was used by Pain Teens guitarist Scott Ayers. Shortly before Pig Destroyer formed, JR Hayes and Scott Hull were in the band Treblinka together - the lineup completed by Mason (Enemy Soil), Jeff Kane (City of Caterpillar), and Eric Kane (Strike Anywhere). They played one show at Club Soda (Washington DC) in 1997 opening for Assuck before splitting up.

ANTHRAX



















"stomp 442"
Year:  1995
Country:  US
City:  New York
Label:  Nuclear Blast
Format:  CD
Tracks:  11
Time:  50 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Alternative Metal





















Anthrax is one of thrash metal's "big 4", together with Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth. Anthrax was always most playful of them all already in 1980s, best known from their flirtation with rap music. In 1990 the band had released their most mature, and slower, thrash metal album, 'Persistence of Time'. And then Joey Belladonna left... With new vocalist John Bush came another change: Anthrax took more and more steps towards more groove metal presentation with fine 1993 album 'Sound of White Noise'. Then Dan Spitz left, who played most of the lead guitar parts. Maybe it means something, that Mr. Spitz didn't write anything for 'Sound...' album any more, even though he never was a main writer for the band. Maybe he didn't want the band to get too groovy, rocking? So, welcome to the first Anthrax album, that can be said to contain alternative rock and nothing else. Back when it was released, it might have sounded heavy as the ball of metal junk (no pun intended) on the cover. On the other hand, it looks more like a rock album artwork. Guys were around 30 years old, and new winds were blowing. So many bands tried to survive the attack of grunge rock by making changes in their sound and songwriting in early 1990s. The album is rocking and at times also punk, and those nu-metal whiffs featured aren't so much of killjoy as they could have been. Anthrax, generally, still did things by their own book. 'Stomp 442' is definitely better than their complete discography and is specially recommended for those non-orthodox metalheads!
