Punk rock band Venerea is scheduled to release its new album, Euro Trash this summer through SBAM Records, and in anticipation has released the record’s new single and video.

The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘Summer of ’94‘ and its companion video Thursday. The musical arrangement featured in the song is a light, upbeat composition. It will appeal easily to any pop punk fan through the positive mood that it sets.

The positive mood set through the arrangement is important to note because the song’s lyrical theme is a warm reflection on what was obviously a fond memory of 1994 for one of the band members. There is even a brief mention of Green Day in the song and its role in those fond memories.

The video that accompanies the song features the band on the road and on stage as the song plays over the visualization.

Pulley Announces New Album Details; Debuts Album’s Lead Single, Video; Announces New Live Dates

Veteran punk rock band Pulley is keeping itself busy this year.

The band announced Friday, it is scheduled to release its latest album (its sixth), Golden Life, next month. In anticipation of the record’s release, the band premiered the album’s lead single and its companion lyric video Thursday. The album is scheduled for release May 13 through SBAM Records.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Golden Life’ is an infectious guitar-driven punk composition. The subtle vocal harmonies alongside the catchy guitar riffs, solid time keeping and low end from the bass line makes the song fully engaging and entertaining.

Frontman Scott Radinsky talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“Golden life; Observing a generation of kids who have seemingly been robbed of an experience,” he said. “Life without ease of access to good, and/or bad. Much of what they have seen in the world has been negative, unimaginable terrorist acts, war and violence, a division of people. In regards to music, our generation really had to earn it if we wanted to get a proper listen or visual. Technology, although having its good aspects, has removed an experience that offered a deeper appreciation of life.”

The lyric video for ‘Golden Life’ is a simple presentation. It features the song’s lyrics over images, such as a $5 bill, Donald Trump blindfolded, and silhouettes of people over stock market figures.

In other news, Pulley recently announced an extensive tour of Europe and Canada in support of its new album. The tour’s European leg is scheduled to launch May 18 in Valencia, Spain and to run through May 29 in Mannheim, Germany. The Canadian leg is scheduled to launch June 1 and to run through Aug. 28 in Edmonton, AB.

The Venomous Pinks Addresses Addiction In New Single, Video

Courtesy: SBAM Records

Punk band The Venomous Pinks gave audiences another preview of its new album this week.

The band debuted its new single, ‘Apothecary Ailment‘ and its companion video Thursday. The song and its video are the latest from the band’s forthcoming album, Vita Mors, which is scheduled for release June 3 through SBAM Records. The band debuted the record’s debut single, ‘No Rules‘ and its video last month.

The Venomous Pinks’ debut album is preceded by its EP, I Want You, which was released in 2020. The record produced the single, ‘I Really Don’t Care‘.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Apothecary Ailment’ is another straight forward, guitar-driven surf/skate punk style composition from the band. It will appeal easily to fans of the likes of Pennywise, Counterpunch, and Chaser what with that familiar sound and style.

Singer/guitarist Drea Doll talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“‘Apothecary Ailment’ is a track about how consuming the cycle of addiction can be,” Doll said. “I witnessed someone close to me struggle with severe addiction. It was a matter of life or death. The lyrics are a plea for them to choose life. I’ve had my own personal battles over the years, and facing one’s demons is never easy.

The video for the band’s new single finds the band out in the desert, performing its new single as the sun sets.

Doll talked about the presentation in her statement.

“For the video, we escape to the beautiful landscape near the lost Dutchman park in Apache Junction, AZ. Since this is our first album, it was important for us to show the world our roots and where we grew up.”

Punk band The Venomous Pinks debuted its new single and video this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘No Rules‘ and its video Thursday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming debut album, Vita Mors, which is scheduled for release June 3 through SBAM Records.

The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single is a catchy three minute-plus composition. The vocal harmonies and the instrumentation makes the song a work that will appeal to any punk rock purist.

The song’s lyrical theme centers on the all too familiar topic of a broken relationship, according to singer/guitarist Drea Doll.

“‘No Rules’ is a scorned love letter in song form that attempts to break the vicious cycle of a toxic relationship,” Doll said. “It was a fun track to record, because regardless of what stage you are at in life, everyone can relate to a little heartbreak.”

Doll also talked about the song’s video.

“We are collaborating again with director Alexander Thomas to create the video,” she said. “I’m stoked, because we were taping at The Pinks old stomping grounds, The Yucca Tap Room. The venue is an Arizona punk rock staple, and we really came into our own as a band on that stage – so it’s only fitting.”

The video features the band on stage in the performance space as two women sit at a bar inside, watching the performance. Audiences will also appreciate that the unidentified bartender featured in the video is sporting a Chaser t-shirt. Chaser is a well-known punk band in its own right.

In other news, The Venomous Pinks are scheduled to perform live in late May at the Pouzza Fest 10 in Montreal, Quebec. They will join the likes of Propaghandi, Cloud Nothings, Belvedere, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, and War on Women for the festival.

The Venomous Pinks’ debut album is preceded by its EP, I Want You, which was released in 2020. The record produced the single, ‘I Really Don’t Care‘.

Chaser Debuts ‘Look Alive’ Lyric Video

Courtesy: Thousand Island Records/Sound Speed Records/SBAM Records/Pee Records

Skatepunk band Chaser debuted the lyric video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘Look Alive‘ Monday.  The song’s musical arrangement is an infectious composition whose guitar, bass, drums and vocals are all well-balanced with one another.  It quickly lends itself to a comparison to works from the likes of Pennywise.

The song’s lyrical theme is just as similar to that of works from Pennywise as said band’s musical arrangements.  It is clearly a sociopolitical statement that urges listeners to take a stand for their beliefs and to unite against all the wrongs in the world.

‘Look Alive’ is one of two songs featured on Chaser’s forthcoming 7″ which is scheduled for release Sept. 4.  The two-song recording will release on four different color variants through Thousand Island Records (Canada), Sound Speed Records (USA), SBAM Records (Europe) and Pee Records (Australia).  Its A-side is listed as ‘Look Alive’ and its B-side as ‘Found Myself Again.’

Bassist Jesse Stopnitzky said in a prepared statement, the record’s release will serve as a fundraiser to help four different nonprofit agencies.

“Our proceeds from the record will be donated to 4 carefully handpicked charitable organizations: Equal Justice Initiative, Educational First Steps, Crisis Aid International, and Surfrider Foundation,” he said.  “2020 has been a year like no other. In the face of such unprecedented crises, one’s impact feels further minimized. However, if we have learned anything from these experiences, it is that we are all in this together and have a responsibility to do our part. At the minimum, manage what we can control.”
