Review: Rancid - ...Honor is All We Know (Beat)

 

 

In the early ‘90s, Rancid were fresh-faced punk rockers from Berkeley, California. Charged up on youth nitro, Rancid figured they could rattle cages forever. Partly true. On their eighth record, time hasn’t wearied Rancid so much as hardened them.

Hysteria #27 - Digitally Online for Top Speed Access

 

Embrace luxury. Indulge your senses. Only the best is right for you. You want the hardest of cores. The most anarchic of punx. The screamiest of metal. Embrace the Hysteria lifestyle. The Ghost Inside's Dear Youth fashion, emblematic of the romantic spirit. Devin Townsend's chic strings, boho meets casual. You Me At Six sensuously breading scalding wings for discerning tastes. If it's too loud, good. Experience Hysteria Style

I was also crowned Digital Editor of the place this month. I'd like to say it's more than a licence to mess with their Facebook. Oh well.

Hysteria #26 - Cover This, Spencer

 

It finally happened. I duped some poor schmoe to put my story on the cover of his mag. Hope you got insurance, PAL. But 4 srs - this is one of the best interviews I've had the pleasure to file. Spencer Chamberlain is a man who stands up bloodied, baying and broken to keep kicking against the industry pricks. If rock n' roll is dead, Sleepwave is its last flickering soul.

I also got intellectual with Tomas Lindberg of At the Gates, gushed over Decapitated's newie with Vogg and ate Gothenburgers with Peter Iwers of In Flames. There's a tofu scramble with Architects in the Hysteria Kitchen, a cheese n' beer guzzling with Neck Deep and we let our youngbloods run free forever with The Amity Affliction on tour. It's like downloading a mosh into your pocket. DO IT MAN

Interview: Ryan Wolfe of Windhand (Beat)

Courtesy Popmatters

Crushing, abrasive and drip-fed wild hooks, press and fans easily dub Windhand a doom band. The term doesn’t sit well with the band, though. Drummer Ryan Wolfe insists the Richmond, Virginia outfit’s rooted in a tradition far more pure: “it’s all just rock n’ roll,” he says. “In my head, when I think about what I’m doing? I’m playing rock n’ roll.”

Interview: Jeff Martin of The Tea Party (Beat)

Courtesy The AU ReviewThe Canadian "Morrocan Rollers" are back, tearing up Australia this October with special guests the Superjesus. Sitting down with Jeff Martin is nothing short of a joy. We talked new record The Ocean at the End, learning to love the hurdy-gurdy and "rock n' roll firecrackers."
