One of my top five favorite bands of all-time has a new record hitting the streets on May 13, when PRONG releases RUINING LIVES. Just two years after the release of the excellent CARVED INTO STONE (which I reviewed here on THE ROCK FATHER). Produced by PRONG mastermind TOMMY VICTOR with Steve Evetts (SEPULTURA, HATEBREED) there to add "his shine" to the record, you can imagine that I'm more than a little excited. Here's what Victor has to say about the forthcoming release...

It's no secret that I dig an interesting cover. It's also no secret that I'm a huge fan of Fearless Records' PUNK GOES... series of compilations. Now, with PUNK GOES 90s VOLUME 2 due out on April 1 (Pre-order: iTunes | Amazon), tracks are starting to spring forth, and the latest comes courtesy of ASKING ALEXANDRIA. They've chosen to cover NINE INCH NAILS... but I have to say that their song choice, "Closer" is my least-favorite song by Trent Reznor and the gang. Take a listen to the lyric video below and let me know what you think of it...

It was thirteen years ago that I bought THE FAINT's DANSE MACABRE? That's the realization that hit me tonight when browsing my emails to find the announcement that THE FAINT's first album since "ceasing to exist" in 2008 is about to hit the streets on April 8. DOOM ABUSE (pre-order now on iTunes) will be released by SQE Music, and today the music video for the first single hit the net. Check out "Help in the Head" below...

Alternative rock outfit The Nearly Deads have announced dates for 'The Survival Tour," running March 8 - 21

Kicking off in Milwaukee, with a co-headlining slot at the inaugural LIAN Riot Music Series, the band then synchs up with Providence, RI rockers It Lives, It Breathes, from March 9 - 21, as they storm Chicago, Allentown, Baltimore, Springfield, Harrisonburg and other cities along the East coast. The band then returns home to Nashville to open for Halestorm at Cannery Ballroom on March 28.

On April 19, 2014, in conjunction with Record Store Day (the annual celebration of independent music retailers), GREEN DAY will release DEMOLICIOUS Demolicious - a collection of 18 demos recorded at Jingletown Studios in Oakland, CA, in 2012 during the sessions for the band's Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, Green Day ¡Tré! album trilogy. The two-disc set will be released on red or clear vinyl, and will also be available on CD and cassette. Additionally, the collection will include the previously-unreleased song, "State of Shock," along with an acoustic version of "Stay the Night." Check out the cover art below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

It's very appropriate to see bands like INFORMATION SOCIETY regrouping and returning to their roots... hearing how many current "alternative" acts have just been aping the 1980s new wave and electronic movements without due credit. Ahead of their summer 2014 album, _HELLO WORLD, Paul Robb (synths), Kurt Larson (vocals) and James Cassidy (bass, keyboards) will be releasing a new single called "Land of the Blind" on March 4 (via HAKATAK International), but you can check out the lyric video today, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...
