NO TURNING BACK
never give up (2015/TAKE CONTROL)
Does NO TURNING BACK really need an introduction? Probably not. In more than 15 years of existence, the Dutch powerhouse has been around, spreading the good spirit and playing stages all over the world. They also released a lot of material, their new album "never give up" already being their 8th full-length. You can count on NO TURNING BACK to craft furious short pieces with a positive state of mind. With 12 songs under their belt, they proved once more, if need be, why their achievement and longevity is greatly deserved.
NO TURNING BACK
HARDCORE. Starting in 1997, NO TURNING BACK have been steadily building an impressive career - touring worldwide and becoming a household name in hardcore music. NO TURNING BACK took 10 days for the studio and simply did what they wanted to: they recorded their best record to date. With album art done by tattoo artist Bas Kahle and guest vocals from DOWN TO NOTHING, COLD WORLD and ENEMY GROUND, NO TURNING BACK delivers a new album that's not to be missed by anyone who believes in real hardcore.
NO TURNING BACK
take control (2011/REFLECTIONS)
HARDCORE. Finally... the brandnew album, housed in a gatefold cover, from one of the biggest hardcore bands in europe. After their last full-length "stronger", NO TURNING BACK played every continent on the planet and showed the world what, in their opinion, real hardcore is made off. With "take control", the band delivers just that...and more. By far their hardest, yet most diverse album so far. There's no stopping this band!
NO USE FOR A NAME
all the best songs (2016/FAT WRECK CHORDS)
PUNK/MELODYCORE. Over the course of their more than 20-year career, NO USE FOR A NAME amassed an impressive catalog of albums packed with hit songs. In 2007, NO USE FOR A NAME compiled a "best of" collection from their material up to that point. In order to encapsulate the true life of the band from start to finish, "all the best songs" has been thoughtfully updated. Now including songs from their resurgent and critically acclaimed release "feel good record of the year" as well as new artwork, "all the best songs" is a definitive collection. The reissue also marks the first time "all the best songs" is available on vinyl. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
NO USE FOR A NAME
the feel good record of the year (2008/FAT WRECK)
PUNK/MELODYCORE. With more than 20 years under their belt, NO USE FOR A NAME are widely recognized as one of independent music's most dominant and everlasting forces. Their 9th proper studio release, "the feel good record of the year", serves to solidify their firm grip on the underground music scene. Laden with the perfect marriage of aggressive guitar work and the ear-catching, melodic hooks that NO USE FOR A NAME have become known for, this release promises to satiate long time fans and endear a plethora of new ones. Vinyl version includes CD.
united we die (2010/REAPER)
HARDCORE. NO VALUES originally started in the summer of ‘06 and features members of BRACEWAR and FIRE & ICE. The 4 tracks sounds like a mixture between early '80s hardcore in the vein of 86 MENTALITY, VIOLENT MINDS, with a tough edge from common bands like DOWN TO NOTHING or BRACEWAR. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
ill blood (2013/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE. NO WARNING was a hardcore punk band from Toronto, Canada. In the fall of 2002, NO WARNING released what some fans consider to be the band's best work and a monumental album of that era of hardcore, "ill blood". This is best NYC-hardcore with guest appearances by Porter (FLOORPUNCH) and Matt (MADBALL). The vinyl version of this release is a 10-year anniversary reissue of "ill blood", the band's 1st 7" and demo, together, all on one release. Vinyl version includes a digital download and an etched d-side.
suffer, survive (2014/SIX FEET UNDER)
HARDCORE. Only time will tell if FUCKED UP guitarist Ben Cook will reassemble his old NO WARNING buddies to follow-up last year's charity 7", but fans can at least look forward to snagging a new copy of the thuggy troupe's 2004 album "suffer, survive" on vinyl. Musicwise - qual parts punk, hardcore, Canada's NO WARNING rock with aggression, but there's a melodic side too. Sixteen test presses were made 10 years ago, with plans to have the set issued on vinyl via Bridge Nine Records, but the release was scrapped. The album was previously delivered only on CD. The limitred vinyl edition comes housed in a gatefold-cover featuring artwork from Jacob Bannon.
lower berth (2015/MAN IN DECLINE/1859)
PUNK-ROCK. "lower berth" deliver 13 new power-packed punch tracks from this incredible American punk band (now with members split between Portland and Oakland). Ex-members of YOUTH BRIGADE, GLASS & ASHES, YOUNG LIVERS, STOP BREATHING etc.. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
s/t (2012/ROTTEN TO THE CORE)
PUNK-ROCK. California kidz big wave mentality. Wanna be another rat in the pack? This isn't your little brother's snooze-tunes borecore. Take a combination of feral street COCKNEY REJECTS and a bit of Scandinavian treble n' gain and you've got all hook all bite. Spend a decade with your tongue in a fan gargaling gravel and you couldn't have cut your teeth so precise as the NO///SE sound. For fans of bands like THE MARKED MAN, THE SPITS, RED DONS. Vinyl includes a download card.
first blood (2011/GONER)
PUNK 'N' ROLL. America’s favorite loopily leporine rock 'n' roller, NOBUNNY, is back with a new album, "first blood". In under half an hour, NOBUNNY goes through every worthy rock 'n' roll subgenre - bubblegum pop, garage, rockabilly and psych - and still beautifully articulates every single human emotion with ease. Vinyl version includes MP3 download card.
backstage passport soundtrack (2015/FAT WRECK CHORDS)
PUNK/MELODYCORE. In 2008, NOFX starred in the TV show "backstage passport", a series that documented the insane hijinks of the band as they weaved an unsteady path through exotic locales where most sane bands fear to tread. The reality romp originally aired on Fuse and later went on to be released on DVD which served up tons of "too hot for TV" bonus footage. After the resounding success of the series, NOFX has been met with endless requests for a soundtrack including all the rare and exclusive songs (5 previously unreleased) from the show. Packed with 15 tracks from both seasons, the "backstage passport soundtrack" is a one-stop shop for all the rare, remixed and unreleased material that fans could only previously enjoy as snippets during the show. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
frisbee (2009/FAT WRECK)
PUNK/MELODYCORE. This release marks the 25-year point in the career of NO FX, who singlehandedly created a genre of fast, technical, melodic and satirical punk-rock that spawned thousands of imitators. This time around, vocalist Fat Mike tackles such important topics as politics, drug abuse, religion, and, of course, lesbians. This vinyl version contains the same songs as the "coaster" CD but has alternate cover artwork and a different name. Vinyl version includes a digital download card.
heavy petting zoo (1996/EPITAPH)
PUNK/MELODYCORE. This is the LP version of NOFX's "heavy petting zoo" album. Following the progression of "white trash two heebs and a bean" and "punk in drublic", "heavy petting zoo" is a damn-near perfect mix of the low humour and (often overlooked) high ideas, together with music that veers from the slamming to the sublime. It isn't as instantaneous as usual, and you may not get it on the first listen. But on plays three, four and five, the appeal of this album will grow like a nursery kid with a steroid habit.
liberal animation (2008/EPITAPH)
PUNK/MELODYCORE. Recorded by Brett Gurewitz of BAD RELIGION fame, NOFX, in 1988, proved to be a formidable challenge for even him. After selling it independently with dismal results, the band finally turned it over to Epitaph in 1991. One song, "beer bong", still creeps into the band's set list and features Fat Mike belching on command.
