So you may not know this but Smartpunk is back and they are putting out punk rock records. Today we have a premiere from one of the newest signees, Boca Raton, Florida's Protagonist. The band's new EP is titled Jean Jackets in June (available October 23rd) and the song is titled "Let's Get It." It'll bring back warm memories of early Rufio and Saves The Day. Check out the tune in the replies and then pre-order these jams via Smartpunk.
Apparently Pope Francis was working behind the scenes to undermine gay rights in America. How shameful and pathetic of him. I have been so impressed with his approach to climate and his call to end the death penalty in the US. But for him to make insidious comments about how the "traditional family" is under threat (presumably from gay marriage) and then to secretly meet that poor misguided cretin Kim Davis...

Phoenix's Sundressed will release their second EP of the year, The Same Condition, on October 23rd via Take This to Heart Records.

If you like acoustic tunes that are a little more folk than punk you might want to check out Sam Russo, a singer/songwriter all the way from the U.K. who is releasing his sophomore full-length, Greyhound Dreams, next week on October 9 via Red Scare Industries.

If it's your thing you can pre-order the record and if you live in the U.K. you can catch him in November on tour with Dan Andriano from Alkaline Trio.
"I wrote it with my friend James Hull from Leagues Apart. It's written from a load of scrambled notes and memories about being down and out in New York City and Holloway, London. We sat down and...

“This is tremendously exciting,” James L. Green, the director of NASA’s planetary science division, said during a news conference on Monday. “We haven’t been able to answer the question, ‘Does life exist beyond Earth?’ But following the water is a critical element of that.
