After initially having their original tour dates postponed due to Visa complications, THE CASUALTIES have confirmed they will still be playing Australia with some new dates just announced for late November and early December.


Poison City is extremely excited to announce the forthcoming release of RESTORATIONS highly acclaimed debut Self-Titled album. While often described simply as music for "grown-up punks" the appeal of Philadelphia's RESTORATIONS is much broader, speaking loudly to fans of everything from shoegaze and indie-rock, folk/ punk and beard-core. 


Over the weekend it was revealed in an interview that FUCKED UP frontman Damian PINK EYES Abraham is considering quitting the band due to the stresses of touring and fatherhood. "I can't tour anymore," Abraham says. "I don't want to take that away from them, so I would love to find a way to basically make it into a constantly evolving thing..."


Much like their contemporaries Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust have become one of the most well respected and authentic sounding metal bands that have risen out of the old school thrash revival. This January, Toxic Holocaust will be hitting every major city in Australia, on their first tour down under in over five years!


Deathwish Inc. have announced that the new 7″, Deceiver, from Belgium’s Rise & Fall is now available to be ordered. The label has also posted the title track, which is also the first taste from their forthcoming album Faith, which you can stream here.

The Danzig Legacy show was meant to play an hour and a half set of Danzig, Samhain and even Misifts songs reunited with Doyle, but only ended up playing two Misfits songs. On stage Danzig blamed the promoter trying to incite a riot, now the promoter tells his side of the story.
