This four song collection features a studio track from Aim & Ignite, a live rendition of "Take Your Time (Coming Home), a b-side, and a remix of "Walking The Dog" from the RAC collective.

A&O vocalist Luis Hernandez said they are working on ten new songs and going about recording them "… in a new way, taking it one day at a time. We're recording guitar, bass and vocals for a different song every day and making sure each song gets the right amount of attention." He continued, "I can't wait for people to hear these new songs.

We've got a bunch of great news today from So Cal pop-punkers Stanley And The Search. The band has signed to Lead Astray Records and will be releasing a new EP on CD in June and vinyl in August.

We have another great exclusive on the site today, as we're streaming a brand new song from Philadelphia punk band, Restorations. The song is "Quit," and it's a chunky, slow-burn type of song that shows off Jon Loudon's deep vocals. It's off the band's upcoming Side One Dummy debut, LP2. You can stream the song over at the band's AP.net profile or in the replies. I have a feeling that if you really dug the vibes of The Menzingers in 2012, then you'll really enjoy this band and album. If you like the song, make sure to pre-order the album here.
