Earlier this week, the band released the LP's track list and art.
Today's reviews are:
Composed of Dan Potthast of Mu330 and Rick Johnson of Mustard Plug, the band puts their pedigree to use and comes out swinging on this energetic release. There are smashing riffs, Elvis Costello inspired love tunes, spastic refrains, and a song about pillow fights. This is pop-punk that keeps something weird in the background at all times.
The album is out October 7, 2014 via Community Records. You can pre-order this bad boy here. Meanwhile, you can hear the whole thing on the band's Punknews.org Profile
The INTERNET has a lot of opinions about stage diving. The annual hardcore festival This is Hardcore trolled with a shirt design and then later posted "Joyce Manor jokes aren't funny anymore." In contrast, Joyce Manor has gotten support from various other bands including Candy Hearts, Balance and Composure and Code Orange (see below).
Johnson has also apologized for his reaction at Friday's show on the band's Facebook page stating:
I wasn't able to watch people being hurt so I asked people not to act in the way that was hurting people. If that means you don't support the band, I respect that. If you don't want to attend the shows, we respect that. If you've bought a ticket to the show and want your money back because you want that to be your experience, we will refund you.
I don't have an issue with anyone's lifestyle. I apologize to losing my cool in Houston. I saw someone whose full intention was to harm people and was upset.
I look forward to playing music in a safe environment for everyone from here on out.
Paul Levitt approached us about the idea of doing a record, and it couldn't have come at a better time. We were super lucky to cross paths with him, because we knew what we needed for the next record was a change, and his production is great. We couldn't stay at home and do another record, the idea didn't sit right, not for this at least.. We'll be living in the studio we're recording at for an entire month, which is something we've never done and is one of the most exciting part. It will allow us to purely focus on making the best record we can make at this point.
The release is out via sideonedummy records and will be available on Rosenstock's upcoming tour. (The video also claims that you'll be able to buy it online). Rosenstock is going on tour with his Antarctigo Vespucci project soon.

Today's reviews are:
"I am really happy with what we are coming up with and it's been a lot of fun. I don't know how I wrote songs before GarageBand on my Mac computer. Being able to sit down with my laptop, plug in my guitar and demo a whole song is incredible. It is awesome. We have about 2 months or so before we go in, we have most of the music down and I have to start getting lyrics and melodies together. It's going to be fun."Good Riddance's last album, My Republic, was released in 2006 via Fat Wreck Chords
Frontman Paul Mahern stated: "On the night of Terry's death, I woke to the sound of a buzz saw in my living room. I rushed to see what was going on and realized I was hearing the opening chords of "Vicious Circle" coming from my stereo speakers. I examined the CD player and realized it was not turned on. I knew without a doubt Terry was saying goodbye and telling me to never stop believing in the energy of Rock 'n' Roll. Terry left behind many songs. A few months ago we decided to look through his catalog and record some of them. This Zero Boys release celebrates the life of a good friend and a true unsung guitar hero." The band released Monkey earlier this year.
