Today we're streaming a brand new song from Shreddy Krueger called "Inamorata" and you can hear it in the replies. This group features members from Secret and Whisper, a band lots of people were into when I was still rounding up Canadian news for the site. The Grieving will be released on September 3rd through InVogue Records and pre-order bundles are available if you like what you hear.

This one is for the older crowd. If you're a fan of Death By Stereo or Propagandhi, allow me to introduce you to A Dying Regime. The Orlando, FL natives have just signed to Dying Scene Records and are going to put out their new EP Shuttles next month. Listen to "Stand Up" in the replies and leave your thoughts as well.

Rather than put out a music video in support of The Few and the Far Between, Vanna have decided to release an entire film made up of music videos for each track. The coming-of-age saga, aptly titled The Few and the Far Between: The Movie, follows the themes explored on the album. Head to the replies to watch the first chapter, which is set to the first two tracks, "The Few and the Far Between" and "The Lost Art of Staying Alive." Check every Friday, as we will be premiering all ten parts to reveal the complete narrative.

With their sophomore EP, Totem, Los Angeles' Culprit are exploring new territories while sticking to those good ol' hooks. Produced by Dryw Owens (From Indian Lakes, Consider The Theif), the qualities that evoked I The Mighty and Armor For Sleep comparisons linger, but are tinged with HRVRD and Moving Mountains-esque sounds. "Piece Of Eden" sums it up nicely - head to the replies to hear our exclusive of the track. And in honor of the premiere, the band's giving AP.net users a treat - 15% off all pre-orders for their new EP with the code "absolutepunk" at check-out. So enjoy Eden, and grab Totem on August 20 via Easy Killer Records.

Maps For Travelers may not be well-known now, but that should change after listeners hear the quartet's No Sleep Records debut, Change Your Name. Today we're bringing another slice of that record exclusively to you by premiering the song, "World On a Wire." The band has the intensity of all your favorite late 90s/early 00s post-hardcore bands. Check out the song in the replies and then pre-order the record here.

There's been a lot of hype and anticipation for the upcoming Rookie Of The Year record, and rightfully so. The Goodnight Moon Part II delivers the follow-up that ROTY fans have been waiting for. The band has given us two songs from the new record that flow into each other, so take a listen to "Raleigh" and "Love and War" in the replies. You can pre-order here.

Say hello to your new favorite band, Little Big League. Today, we're premiering the band's spectacular Tiny Engines' debut, These Are Good People. Rolling in the vein of late 90's emo and indie guitar rock, the band is led by Michelle Zauner's intense, unique vocals that paint a picture of tension, impending danger, and vulnerability amongst the dark musicianship. It's absolutely one of my favorite releases of 2013 and I know a lot of users here will love this release. Check it out in the replies and pre-order it here and use the code "LBL20" to save 20% on the LP, which is gorgeous by the way.
Drew Beringer on 08/05/13 - 10:40 AM
At the beginning of last month, we premiered a new song from Long Lost's (Transit vocalist Joe Boynton's side project) No Sleep Records' debut, Save Yourself, Start Again. We thought it'd only be appropriate for us to premiere the entire LP at the beginning of this month then. Head on over to the replies to stream the album in its entirety and then pre-order it here. The album is in stores tomorrow.
Drew Beringer on 08/05/13 - 09:17 AM
Two weeks ago we premiered Rigoletto's music video, and now we're premiering the band's latest single "Twenty Five." It comes from the band's upcoming record Delusions Of Grandeur, which you can pre-order here. My comparison to The 1975 was deemed pretty accurate, others also got a Coasta vibe. Listen to the song in the replies and let us know what you think.
Christian Wagner on 08/05/13 - 04:30 AM
Hailing from Madison, WI, Serianna is set to release their new LP Define Me in less than two weeks. Signed to Bullet Tooth, the metalcore outfit is undoubtedly releasing their most punishing music to date. Today we're streaming the track "Analog" and you can hear it in the replies. You can pre-order the record on CD and digital and read an interview we did with the band here.

Nathan Hussey has had some damn good years. As vocalist/guitarist/songwriter of All Get Out, Hussey and friends played their way to the top of our Best in '11 lists with their stellar full-length, The Season, then hit the road with La Dispute, Anberlin, Transit, and more. Today we're pleased to bring you an exclusive album stream of Nathan's first solo release, Ground Me - listen to the full record in the replies & grab it online August 6. Recommended for fans of Kevin Devine, Andrew Jackson Jihad, and Owen.

You've never heard of The Malones, and that's okay. Neither have I, and neither has anyone else. The fine folks at Quiet Country Audio decided to do a session with them and this is undoubtedly my favorite session to date. This band is brand new, but you'll be hearing big things from them soon. If you like The Strokes, you need to check this out now. Watch the videos in the replies and you can purchase the audio here.
Christian Wagner on 08/01/13 - 07:10 AM
Today we have a new song from Flint, MI, four-piece Deer Widow. The band will be releasing its debut EP on Save Your Generation Records and you can get a sneak peek at that EP in the replies by checking out "Russian River Veins." The band features members from Kid Brother Collective, Dead by Sunday, Empty Orchestra, and more. If you dig what emo originally sounded like back in the 90s, then you may love this. You can pre-order the EP on 10" vinyl here.
Drew Beringer on 07/31/13 - 09:51 AM
I cannot stop raving about San Francisco's Ghost Parade. The band encompasses all my favorites, showcasing the technicality of The Receiving End Of Sirens and Circa Survive, the grit of Balance & Composure, all while channeling Deftones in their own unique way. It's aggressive, it's passionate, it's raw - so, so good. We're premiering their energetic new music video for "Low" - check out the awesome in the replies. And in honor of the premiere, the band's giving 20% off their debut EP to AbsolutePunk members - just use the code 'absolutepunk' on their BandCamp. So buy that. Also, Panda.

We're super excited to premiere Blue Jay, the second release from Texas post-hardcore band, Meraki/Toska. Eight tracks of blistering post-hardcore, Blue Jay is sure to wake you up at this fine hour. Head to replies to check it out.

Recent Solid State signees The Ongoing Concept are aiming to turn heavy music on its ear. The band will release its debut album, Saloon, on August 20th but we're here to premiere the new single, "Class of Twenty-Ten." The Idaho quartet incorporates banjos, handclaps into its brand of chaotic metal. I can't stop listening to it. Check it out in the replies and if you like it, pre-order the album here.
Drew Beringer on 07/30/13 - 10:23 AM
We're premiering NY hardcore act Still Rings True's video for "Empty." One of the newest signees to Anchor 84 Records, the video has spray painting, performance parts, and molotov cocktails. You can watch the video in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 07/30/13 - 06:56 AM
Today we're streaming a new track from Anton Kellner And The Lone Stars, which features Fred Mascherino (Terrible Things, The Color Fred) with a guest vocal spot. The track is a really fantastic song that has great pop, country, and folk elements. You can listen to "Where We Used To Lay" in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 07/30/13 - 06:39 AM
When influential bands call it quits, we can deal - as long as those musicians keep making music. Problem is, it's been three years since lowcountry - we've been ready for Envy On The Coast's members to return for some time now. Enter Heavy English, the answer. EOTC's vocalist/keyboardist/guitarist Sal Bossio and drummer Dan Gluszak have teamed with bassist Ari Sadowitz to bring the new jams - and we've got the first track. Head to the replies to hear "21 Flights," and grab the track on iTunes tomorrow.

Earlier this year, Kevin Devine raised well over his Kickstarter goal to fund and release two albums in 2013. We're fortunate to be able to exclusively release the first song off the Jesse Lacey-produced Bubblegum (aka LP8, more album details here). The song is called "Private First Class" and it is about Bradley Manning, the United States Army soldier arrested in May 2010 in Iraq on suspicion of having passed classified material to the website WikiLeaks. You can check out the song in the replies and I think it's one of the best songs Kevin has ever released. More details on both albums will be coming soon, but for now check out the new song and let us know what you think.
Drew Beringer on 07/28/13 - 08:26 PM
Boston post-hardcore band Actor|Observer will release their second EP, Circular Mill, on August 2nd. You can listen to the blistering opening track, "Deliver Me From Clever Art " featuring Dylan Massucco of American Verse, in the replies or on the band's AP.net profile. Pre-order the EP here.
Alex DiVincenzo on 07/26/13 - 10:32 AM
We're thrilled to be premiering the first song and title track off of Dowsing's upcoming new album, I Don't Even Care Anymore. The Chicago-based emo group have matured and refined its sound on its second LP for Count Your Lucky Stars, so take two minutes out of your day today to check out the band's rad new song in the replies.

I'm beyond excited to be premiering one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite albums of 2013. In the replies, you can stream "Miles Apart," one of the highlight tracks from The Dangerous Summer's upcoming stellar album, Golden Record. This is a special song and I think it'll end up being a lot of fans favorite TDS song to date. After you check it out, make sure you pre-order the record here (if you haven't already). The band is also heading out on a headlining tour soon and you can pick up tickets here (tour dates in the replies). I think Golden Record is the band's best effort to date and you can check out my thoughts on that in my official review. So let us know what...
Drew Beringer on 07/25/13 - 10:45 AM
Today, we're excited to bring you a premiere of a brand new Reverse The Curse song. "Deliverance" is from the band's forthcoming full length Existent, out on August 27. The band has drummed up comparisons to the likes of Thrice, Brand New, and Gifts From Enola, and "Deliverance" does these comparisons complete justice with unique songwriting and emotive vocals that fans of those bands will be sure to love. You can check out the song in the replies, and be sure to pre-order the record here via Paper + Plastick.
Jake Jenkins on 07/25/13 - 08:23 AM
Head to the replies to watch the U.S. premiere of recent No Sleep Records signees Moose Blood's new music video for "Boston." The track appears on the UK emo group's latest 7", Boston/Orlando. Not only is the song great, but it also contains a reference to Brand New's Deja Entendu to which most of us can probably relate.
Alex DiVincenzo on 07/25/13 - 08:16 AM
Today we've got another fantastic Quiet Country Audio Session, with this week featuring Captain, We're Sinking. The Scranton, PA punk act rips through "Brother" and "Beer Can" and you can view these videos in the replies. You can purchase the audio from the live sessions here.

03) magic eight ball
04) whiskey and words of encouragement
Ryan Gardner on 07/24/13 - 08:00 AM
Everyone loves a good guest spot - there's just something so fun about a surprise vocalist sneaking their way onto track you wouldn't expect. When I The Mighty needed a female set of pipes for Satori, they called in The Material's Colleen D'Agostino to fill out "Four Letter Words," a stand out track on a damn good record. We reunited the band with their guest at the House Of Blues, grabbing an acoustic rendition of the song - check it out in the replies.
