Teenage Bottlerocket Added to Red Scare 10th Anniversary Show -

Today we’re announcing that Teenage Bottlerocket is playing the Red Scare Industries 10th Anniversary show in Chicago on October 25 at the Metro. The band joins Direct Hit!, Elway, The Falcon, The Lillingtons, The Methadones and The Brokedowns. Tickets are still available and below you’ll find a quote from bassist Miguel Chen. TBR is currently on the Warped Tour and recently signed with Rise Records.
Holy shit Red Scare is ten years old! That means it’s been ten years since we met Toby Jeg, our dear friend who’s been with us ever since! We have a lot of great memories together and it’s certainly safe to say Red Scare was a critical label in TBR’s journey. Celebrating a rad label, run by a rad dude with a rad show sounds like the best time ever! AND if that wasn’t enough it’s taking place in one of our favorite cities in the world: Chicago!!! Sign us up!

AP.net Podcast: The Gaslight Anthem's "Get Hurt" Discussion (Episode 43) -

Check, check … is this thing on? Is it Friday? Well, not quite, but it’s still podcast day. Today we’ve got a special edition episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast talking exclusively about The Gaslight Anthem's upcoming new album, Get Hurt. Your two favorite hosts, and me, talk about our impressions of the album from first listen all the way up to now. Then we tackle the whole thing track-by-track and give thoughts, complaints, and discuss what we think works or doesn’t work. The end of the episode has us looking at what we think about “deluxe” albums and if we consider the bonus tracks part of the canonical album or not. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.
