Green Day's Dookie turned 20 this year, but its influence can still be felt to this day. Case in point: Rochester, NY punk rock trio Envious Disguise. Head to the replies to stream "She Hates Me" from their debut album, Blood, Sweat and Beers, which comes out tomorrow via Eat Here Records. The concise, punchy number could easily fit between four-chord anthems by Green Day and MxPx on your skateboarding mixtape.

California has produced its fair share of punk bands over the years and The Mighty Fine is looking like it's going to be a part of that group of artists very soon. The band is releasing Brothers and Smugglers on March 4th via Creator-Destructor Records. It was recorded and produced by Kyle Black (Strung Out, Set Your Goals, Comeback Kid) and fans of 90s melodic punk bands like Hot Water Music, Alkaline Trio, and The Lawrence Arms will definitely love this. We're happy to premiere the group's video for "Daphne" which you can view in the replies.

Today, we're premiering one of my favorite 2014 releases thus far - the full-length debut album from Creative Adult.

The 12-track album is a dark, fuzzy noisemaker infused with psychedelic haze in the vein of Fugazi and the like. Check out Psychic Mess in the replies and pre-order it via Run For Cover.

Chiodos have always had an affinity for the bizarre and what goes bump in the night (after all, the band is named for the trio of brothers who directed the cult film Killer Klowns from Outer Space), so it couldn't come as a surprise that the band's new video for "Why The Munsters Matter" is full of old black-and-white horror movie clips. The song is classic Chiodos - as it contains a Bone Palace Ballet feel while maintaining the band's rejuvenated energy and chaos (as seen on last summer's Warped Tour). Today, we are proud to premiere the band's new video along with the reveal of "The Devil Dance Tour 2014." The band's upcoming album, DEVIL, hits retailers on April 1st, but if you...

Now the group is digitally releasing an EP called Boulders through Gold Stock Records tomorrow and its debut full-length Peaks/Valleys is due out sometime this summer. If you're into Polar Bear Club this is definitely a band you might want to check out.

Idlehands is going to be one of those bands you're going to want to know about right now. The San Diego rock act is starting to make a splash on the national scene and it'll be a damn shame if you catch the group on their upcoming tour with Being As An Ocean, A Lot Like Birds, and My Iron Lung and not know the band's material. Listen to the track "Mellow Christ" in the replies which comes from the split with Ghost Parade. The track features GP's vocalist Justin Bonifacio and the split is available for pre-order.

In case you haven't noticed, Tiny Engines has been killing it thus far in 2014. And you can add another hit to the list as Florida's Direct Effect will be unleashing its brand of abrasive punk rock in the form of its new album, Sunburn, this March 11th. We're offering up a taste of that LP today by premiering "Thoughts of Honey" and if you like loud, noisy punk in the vein of Pissed Jeans, then check this jam out in the replies. You can pre-order it on vinyl or buy it now digitally for $5 at Bandcamp.
