“I cannot thank John 5 enough for having us aboard his sold out tour, and getting to play for his audience was a very special experience that we will never forget,” vocalist Michael Orlando said in a press release. “And we’re back to work, thrilled to get out on the road to play for all our fans and give them the full Dead Girls Academy experience! We will be playing 10 songs off of Alchemy, which I’m very stoked about.”

When asked about what DGA has planned for the rest of 2019, Orlando said, “After the John 5 tour, we played a few festivals but our main drive and ambition was looking towards album number two. We learned a lot playing live and watching our favorite bands so we are taking that knowledge into the studio and currently we are finishing up the writing process. I’m excited for everyone to hear what we’ve been cooking up. I have no doubt it will take DGA into a whole new stratosphere. I’m very proud of it and we are getting ready for a giant 2020!”

Ultra Q, Girlpool, B.A.G., More To Play SWMRS’s Fifth Annual UNCOOL Festival

SWMRS’s annual Halloween festival is back for it’s fifth time.

The Cali rock quartet revealed the lineup for the fifth annual UNCOOL Festival, and it’s quite stellar. Joining SWMRS are Ultra Q (formerly Mt. Eddy), Girlpool, Bane’s World, DYGL, Kuromi, and B.A.G. (Blimes x Gifted Gab).

When asked about the history of the festival by Alternative Press, drummer Joey Armstrong (son of Green Day vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong) said, “A few years back, we invited a couple of our favorite California bands to perform with us at our local all ages DIY venue. It’s been pretty surreal to watch UNCOOL Fest grow to the extent it has, but our objective hasn’t really changed. We want to continue to make UNCOOL Fest a platform for modern music made for and by young people.”

The festival takes place in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Palladium on October 25 with Bane’s World, Girlpool, B.A.G., and DYGL, and in Berkeley at the UC Theatre the next day with Girlpool, Ultra Q, B.A.G., Kuromi, and DYGL.

Waterparks Wants To Tour With Smash Mouth

Waterparks Wants To Tour With Smash Mouth

Well that’s something.

Texan pop-rock trio Waterparks are 100% interested in touring with 90s Cali rock band Smash Mouth. Let me explain why.

Late last month, Waterparks released their new song “Turbulent”, their first new track with Hopeless Records (Hands Like Houses, New Found Glory, The Wonder Years). That’s when on June 12, Smash Mouth retweeted Waterparks’s tweet about “Turbulent”, telling their fans to check it out.

Touched by this, the Texan trio then asked Smash Mouth if they could tour together this year. And to make things even stranger, Anti-Flag’s bassist Chris Baker aka Chris#2 responded with numerous jokes.

What a weird timeline we’re in.

Mundy’s Bay Sign To Pure Noise Records, Release New EP “Control Room”

Mundy’s Bay Sign To Pure Noise Records, Release New EP “Control Room”

Canadian indie darlings Mundy’s Bay have signed with American pop-punk label Pure Noise Records (Like Pacific, Reggie And The Full Effect, Year Of The Knife).

The Montréal-based quintet announced the news yesterday. “This is a huge opportunity for us and we’d like to thank everyone that’s helped us out since the beginning,” the band wrote in a statement. “Mundy’s Bay might be the 5 of us, but we wouldn’t be here without our friends!”

Pure Noise dropped the quintet’s new EP Control Room today. Listen to the EP here.

While it might be odd for Pure Noise to sign an indie band, the group have their roots in hardcore. “One of the best things that’s come out of the streaming age of music is an openness to all genres,” guitarist Victor Beaudoin told BrooklynVegan. “We were still able to be part of the hardcore scene while reaching out to new people.”

Their debut full-length will be coming out later this year.

“AMERICA. The first chapter of the resistance is closing. This is the end of the beginning. Since the very first song came out in September 2016 we have been dreaming of what it would feel like to play bigger spaces. Tell bigger stories. Use a larger visual component to the shows to add more commentary to what being a grandkid is all about. Now, 3 years later, at rock bottom, we are ready to take that step.”
