The Reaganomics As part of the 5 bands in 5 days, Red Scare 10-year anniversary announcements, we're happy to report that The Reaganomics are the newest addition to the lineup. They'll be joining The Falcon, Teenage Bottlerocket, Masked Intruder, The Lillingtons, Direct Hit!, The Methadones, Elway, The Brokedowns, and more still TBA. Reaganomics frontman Greg Alltop stated:

Most of the bands that have been/are on Red Scare are the reason we started The Reaganomics and we are thrilled to get super drunk with them, compare beards, try on each others flannels and see who's wearing the dirtiest Chuck Taylors. Our plan for the show is to get sloppy drunk, play a few Nomix, cover some old Metallica songs, and hope the Cobra Skulls are gonna play. One might say we're "stoked".

Tickets are available here for the October 25 celebration in Chicago, IL.

Punknews is pleased to debut "Girl" by The Number Ones.

The track is a classic slice of power-pop-punk. The band yearns for that "one special girl" the way only young men can. But, despite their lovesickness, the band keeps a fire in their coals with a jangly, but driving, backbeat. The Undertones would be proud.

The band's self-titled album is out August 5 via Deranged Records. Pre-orders are here.

The MisfitsWith less than a month to go, it has been announced that the Misfits have been added to this year's Gwar-B-Q. Bassist/vocalist (and sole remaining original member) Jerry Only will also participate in a 'VIP Celebrity Meet & Meat' alongside others such as Ice-T, Bam Margera, Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed), as well as your Galactic Overlords themselves, GWAR.

Further, A "viking funeral" for the band's late frontman, Dave "Oderus Urungus" Brockie, will be held a day prior to the GWAR-B-Q at the same location. Jello Biafra will serve as the viking funeral's master of ceremonies. Reportedly, Oderus' body will be set ablaze on the "SS Boat," which, of course, is the craft that the proto-GWAR band Death Piggy would often ride onto the stage. Jello Biafra starred alongside GWAR in their Skullhedface film.

The Gwar-B-Q will be held at Hadad's Lake in Richmond, VA on August 16th and feature performances from Body Count, Hatebreed, Revocation and many more. Brockie was found dead by his roommate earlier this year.
Full details of the event can be found at the official Gwar-B-Q site.

Wire have released one of the songs from their upcoming reissue of 1981's Document and Eyewitness. While the album is a set of tracks recorded on three '80s-era live dates, this track never appeared on any of Wire's studio recordings, but definitely feels like it would fit on 1979's 154.

The centerpiece of the original vinyl release was a recording of the concert at the Electric Ballroom that grew out of the band's performance art-based residency at the Jeannetta Cochrane Theatre the previous November.

Delivering a traditional rock gig -- or even fully realized songs, for that matter -- was not a priority at the Electric Ballroom, and Wire's set was composed of largely new (and often under-rehearsed) work, accompanied by a series of artistic actions and interventions. The reissue is out August 19, 2014.

Shirts For A CureShirts for a Cure, the organization dedicated to raising money for cancer patients in need after the death of founder Mark Beemer's wife, was robbed at the Virginia Beach, VA stop of the Vans Warped Tour on July 23.

According to the organization's Facebook:
This is not a post we ever thought we would ever have to make, but unfortunately we were robbed yesterday at the Vans Warped Tour in Virginia Beach. Anyone with information is asked to contact the authorities. For those who don't know, our profits go directly to cancer patients in need and so having our money stolen is a huge loss for our cause. Our donations from this summer were designated to help with our ongoing financial support of the Community Health Center in Chicago and we do not want to let this organization down. We really need your help in replacing the funds that were tragically stolen.

Direct donations can be made at this location.

Every Time I DieSome bands find challenging themselves is what makes them better. For Every Time I Die, reaching back and working with someone new has been found to make all the difference. Armed with their new album From Parts Unknown, Every Time I Die looks to cement themselves as one the most consistent hardcore bands of today. Punknews interviewer Christopher Barrett sat down with frontman Keith Buckley to talk about tours and dream tours, refining their sound and not disappointing a producer.
