Lookout Records has confirmed that it indeed is closing its doors, releasing a lengthy statement. The big question on everyone's lips is, how does a record label with a back catalog that spans the likes of big sellers Green Day and Operation Ivy, along with Avail, Screeching Weasel, Neurosis, Mr T Experience and a bunch more go broke?


Swedish hardcore giants RAISED FIST have been tearing at the ears of fans like a rabid pit-bull on steroids for over 15 years releasing a procession of classic albums. Now they join Hatebreed, Cro Mags and Biohazard for two action packed sideshows in Melbourne and Newcastle.


ANCHOR keep proving to be one of Europe's most active hardcore bands with close to 300 shows in less than four years. Following the release of their highly acclaimed album "Recovery" on Pee Records last year, ANCHOR are now set to add Australia to their extensive tour diary playing thirteen shows and covering five states in the first two weeks of March.

smlCOLLate last week Coliseum debuted a new music video with a touring themed clip for "One Last Night." from their most recent release, the Parasites EP.  You can also check out the first video released from the EP, "Waiting (Too Late)".


Crucial Response Records have launched preorders for a new double LP from Dutch band ManLiftingBanner entitled "The Revolution Continues".  The album collects their previously released Myth of Freedom (1991), Ten Inches That Shook The World (1992), and a compilation track, as well as eight newly recorded songs from the reunited band.


BTMI, notorious for raucous shows, supplying paint and stencils for fans to create their own merch, band members spread out all over the continent, and always gathering new ones wherever they go. Songwriter and producer Jeff Rosenstock travels to Australia to join one of Australia’s most talked about DIY punk band of the moment The Smith Street Band. 


In recognition of their influence on the Poison City family of bands, SHUFFLE AND SCRAPE: A Tribute To Blueline Medic. will feature tracks from THE NATION BLUE, A DEATH IN THE FAMILY, ARROWS, THE GIFTHORSE, JAMIE HAY & THE SMITH STREET BAND, HARMONY, JEN BUXTON, PAPER ARMS, DARREN GIBSON and GRIM FANDANGO.


You may recall back in December we told you OFF! were planning on hitting the studio real soon to record a follow up full length. Well they recently confirmed the news this week, with a few updates including a photo of Keith Morris working on some new lyrics, as the band is due to hit the studio next month.


Richmond, Virginia’s IRON REAGAN have posted their demo online for streaming and free download. The band notably features Municipal Waste frontman Tony Foresta along with ex-members of Darkest Hour.


"EN VIVO!" was filmed on 10th April 2011 in front of over 50,000 ecstatic fans at the Estadio Nacional, Santiago during the Round The World In 66 Days leg of The Final Frontier World Tour. This live show encapsulates to perfection the heart and soul of Iron Maiden 2011.
