Philadelphia based REIGN SUPREME has signed with Mediaskare Records and will release their upcoming EP ‘Sky Burial‘ later this year through the label.  “We just want to work with a label that will bend over backwards to help us achieve our goals as a band, we feel like Mediaskare is that label.”  said vocalist Jay Pepito.


Alkaline Trio have postponed their imminent UK tour, following vocalist/guitarist Matt Skiba breaking his foot. The injury occurred when he was stopped at a traffic light on his motorcycle, and a truck ran over his foot. Skiba stated, via Twitter, that the band plans to make up the dates as soon as possible. 


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..."

This January, Toxic Holocaust will be hitting every major city in Australia, on their first tour down under in over five years!

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.
