Rancid - Tomorrow Never Comes (CD)€17,00
Carrying the same raw energy since their 1991 inception, RANCID has been deemed by Stereogum as ”incapable of making a bad album.” Today, the Berkeley, California, punk stalwarts continue that streak with the announcement of their highly anticipated tenth studio album. ”Tomorrow Never Comes” is due for a June 2 release via Epitaph, produced by longtime collaborator, BAD RELIGION guitarist and Epitaph founder Brett Gurewitz.
Their first new music since 2017’s ”Trouble Maker”, RANCID also shares the exhilarating title track and lead single today. Highlighting their collective ear for melodic rock hooks and catchy, sing-a-long choruses, the song is complete with the familiar wailing guitars and punishing punk rock rhythms that have solidified RANCID as the legends they are.
At a whopping 850 million catalog streams to date, fans and critics alike seem to agree that RANCID’s brand of high-impact, no-frills punk still flows abundantly in their blood, while easily translating to a modern audience. Now embarking on their tenth full-length effort, this is evident throughout ”Tomorrow Never Comes”. With its sixteen blistering tracks barely making the two-and-a-half-minute mark, the album boasts the same gritty, straight forward punk-with-a-purpose that the world just can’t get enough of.
On their last studio album, ”Trouble Maker”, Pitchfork explored the band’s themes of ”contemporary political turmoil–blue-collar identity crises, tense demonstrations, the ever-present shadow of the Man — through the prism of their rebellious past, a little more wizened but just as rambunctious as ever.”
Punk News also raved, ”RANCID makes a radical left turn from the norm, pushing far past the boundaries, not just of punk, but of the traditional rules of music itself, creating the most original sound to come out of any musical artist since Beethoven.”
Throughout the last three decades, RANCID has remained fiercely independent, never losing their loyalty to their community or each other. Their music confronts political and social issues, while balancing personal tales of love, loss, and heartbreak with attitude. By carrying on the traditions and spirit of the original punk rock bands that came before, Rancid has become a legend and inspiration to punk bands that have come after.

Hooker Jane Lee - Spiritus (CD)€18,00
2018 release. Start spreading the news – New York’s hottest punk-blues collective are back in business. If you didn’t catch them first time round, then it’s high time you got to know Jane Lee Hooker better. Individually, the five members have pedigree to burn, turning heads and tearing up stages in seminal bands from Nashville Pussy to Bad Wizard. But when Dana ’Danger’ Athens (vocals), Hail Mary Z (bass), Melissa ’Cool Whip’ Houston (drums), Tracy ’High Top’ (guitar) and Tina ’t Bone’ Gorin (guitar) hooked up in 2012, they swore a blood pact to take Jane Lee Hooker all the way. ”We’re a gang,” say the lineup. ”We’re a family.” Now, as a twist in the tail of 2017, second album Spiritus finds Jane Lee Hooker writing their own entry into the great rock ’n’ roll songbook. ”Spiritus is almost entirely original music written by the band as a unit,” they explain, ”which has been really exciting and really gratifying. We write so naturally well together, it’s been pretty effortless.” ”We wanted to have an ’album’ that people would listen to from beginning to end,” explain the lineup, ”and find something to love about every song.” Mission accomplished. In a world of manufactured bands and bubblegum pop, Jane Lee Hooker are the real deal. Join their rock ’n’ roll revolution.

Relentless - A Loving Memory (CD)€15,00Viime vuonna kymmenvuotisjuhliaan raivokkaasti punkrollannut Relentless on valmistellut samalla salaa uutta albumiaan, joka julkaistaan17. maaliskuuta.”Janne Tanskanen” Oman järjen käyttö ja omalla päällä ajatteleminen on aina ollut mulle se punk. Se siinä kiinnosti alun pitäen ja se on ohjannut koko elämän läpi. Nuorena, vihaisena, ”kapinallisena” helposti vetää yksioikoisia johtopäätöksiä ja mielipiteitä. Sitä helposti tarttuu tiettyihin sloganeihin ja ideologioihin, niitä sen pitemmälle miettimättä. Jälkikäteen saattaa huomata, että ei kaikki ihan näin mustavalkoista olekaan. Asioilla on kääntöpuolensa ja niitten puolien väliin mahtuu vielä rajaton määrä erilaisia mahdollisuuksia. Eikä se siltikään tarkota, että olisit luovuttanut! Hommat voi tehdä monella tapaa ja on niin monta tapaa pitää lippua korkealla ja työntää kapulaa rattaaseen. Ajat muuttuu ja on ihan hyvä muuttuu niitten mukana”, hän jatkaa uuden biisin teeman valottamista.Tulevan studioalbumin tuotannossa on ollut mukana myös No Shame -yhtyeen Sampsa Sarparanta, jolle Tanskanen antaa jo tässävaiheessa ison hatunnoston ideoista ja inspiraatiosta. Samalla kyse on ensimmäinen kerta, kun Relentless on uskaltautunut päästämäänulkopuolisia korvia mukaan biisinkirjoitustyöhön ja sovittamiseen.
