"Something Higher, Hard To The Soul" positive hardcore compilation out on Youth Crew records

I hadn't heard much of Youth Crew records since 2010, the year they released the debut full-length
from Vicenza's sXe posi-core Inner Reason and then beginning of 2014 they knocked again to our door to instroduce the new EP from Milano's Safe (an interview with the band is in the works and will be up soon).
With the end of last year coming to a close some posts on FB were up starting to generate some buzz about a new release from Milano's label. This time around the new outing from Youth Crew camp is an international compilation, of course, this is not the first one in their catalogue, titled "Something Higher, Hard To The Soul" which features 9 bands and includes 2 bonus track from The Netherland's Birds Of A Feather and Milano's Fumbles In Life.
On February 18th the compilation went finally to print therefore it will be available shortly. Keep checking their FB for updates.

Read on a post typed by Dharmavit, founder of Youth Crew, about the compilation...

Hello everyone, after months of work I'm really happy to announce the new release on my records label Youth Crew Records: "Something Higher, Hard To The Soul" compilation.
It is the result of work begun in my mind about six months ago. It should be out next January.
During the next few weeks there'll be some important news, so stay tuned! (A special thanks to all the bands on this compilation, and an extra special thanx to Loren "Safe" for all the works of mastering/editing and to Sevaparayana Krishna das for the cd booklet). Love, Dharmavit

BAYSIDE premieres new song and lyric video “Dancing like an idiot”

Some fresh news about the post-punk New Yorkers who released their newest effort last year on Hopeless records...

Queens punk rockers Bayside have partnered with Billboard to premiere their brand new song and lyric video “Dancing Like An Idiot”.
The song comes from Bayside’s forthcoming Cult White Edition, a special edition double LP reissue of the band’s latest album, Cult.

On “Dancing Like An Idiot,” lead singer Anthony Raneri tells us: “There is no such thing as bad music. Music, like any art form, is subject to people’s opinion and for every person who thinks a band is bad, there is someone who loves them. My problem is with artists that are actually responsible for dumbing down the youth. Encouraging ignorance instead of encouraging morals and encouraging the youth to be a better generation. When I wrote the song, I was thinking about the sarcastic remarks that people make about how the movie “Idiocracy” was coming true or this or that about “kids these days”. Instead of complaining about kids these days, I decided to talk about the people responsible for kids these days.”

WOAHNOWS releases ‘Sounds Like Spitting’ Video

Plymouth turbo-charged-indie-punks WOAHNOWS have revealed the video for their new single
'Sounds Like Spitting' after premiering it with Clash Magazine a few days ago. In keeping with their usual DIY tongue-in-cheek ethos it features the band playing in a dingy pub and addresses their recent change of line-up in typical WOAHNOWS fashion...

SPRAYNARD joined the Jade Tree family, Jade Tree celebrates 25th anniversary

Everybody who have been into punkrock, emo and indie music growing up in the 90's must have
heard of a seminal indie label based in Wilmington, Delaware and named Jade Tree. And if you had you surely know about band like Lifetime, The Promise Ring or Kid Dynamite (unfairly mentioning only a very few). The label is 25 years old this year and they ought to celebrate such an important milestone. And what a better way than signing new bands and release new stuff?

2015- West Chester, Pennsylvania punk trio SPRAYNARD joined the Jade Tree family last week.
The three members began playing together in 2009 and ultimately announced a hiatus in 2012. The band is back and will be releasing their reunion record this spring/summer, and let us tell you: It's incredible.

Listen to Spraynard's previous outing titled "Funtitled" here,

London's THE KUT reveal 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' the new EP

Hosting this news about an odd sounding band (odd sounding by the hardcore, punk metal standards normally covered here) hailing from London, UK. This all female grungy three-piece is called THE KUT that is gonna drag you back to the 90's. I don't know whether this is gonna be the new revival thing that will take the scene in the near future (I also got to see other new bands playing stuff which wouldn't have cut a bad figure among the Sub Pop catalogue) but who knows...
Read on the press item...

"Without music there is never any balance,” opines Princess Maha, lead vocalist and guitarist of returning London grungers, The Kut.“We’ve put a lot of work into our band, made the requisite sacrifices and accepted the financial pressures of being an independent act, but the pride we feel for our music and the creative milestones we achieve makes it all worthwhile.”
The Kut’s latest milestone is new E.P, Rock Paper Scissors and it sees the trio – completed by drummer Violet Cannibal and bassist/vocalist Alison Wood – taking a more stripped back, visceral approach toward their Riot Grrrl tainted alt-rock. Twinkling guitars, accompanied by harsh growls and contrastingly sweet melodies.
