Local Music News

The Zeros

Having announced new music on the horizon, the influential reunited punks are reissuing their classic single "Don't Push Me Around" in an autographed starburst vinyl pressing with an original insert, released by Bomp Records.

The New Regime

Their new EP Heart, part one of a four part EP series called Heart, Mind, Body, & Soul, will be followed November 22 by part two, Mind, with a video now streaming online for "A Way To Feel Again," directed by John David Moffat.

Ariel Levine

A new single drops October 22, "If This Isn't Me," along with a music video directed by Grant Reinero. "The songs take a new direction for me," Levine told the Reader, "as they are very personal and focus on my own life experiences, inspired by some recent events and hardships in my life. No plans to play these new songs live, they may just live in the recorded world. However, some members of my band Ariel Levine & Mechanical Royalty are considering coming out of hiatus and forming a new three-piece with new music."

Marc Intravaia

In response to Eve Selis' post about the two no longer working together, he replied "Eve and I remain friends and will always be friends. We did not have a fight or a blowout or anything of that nature. The fact is we just drifted apart musically. It’s been happening for the last couple years and now she is on a much different path than me."


Fronted by singer-guitarist Riley Hawk (Petyr), son of skateboard star Tony Hawk, the band's first video from their debut full-length Down In Flames, "Bleed Me Free," was shot entirely on Super 8 film. They're on an album support tour with San Francisco stoner rockers Acid King.

The Palominos

Singer-songwriter Mark Merrell (who also played with Whiskey Heart and the Neverly Brothers) passed away

Tom Waits

Come On Up To The House: Women Sing Waits (due November 2) features new renditions of classic Waits songs by Aimee Mann, Phoebe Bridgers, Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer, Corinne Bailey Rae, Patty Griffin, Rosanne Cash, Courtney Marie Andrews, and others.

Rob Halford

The Judas Priest frontman is streaming video of "Donner And Blitzen" as the lead track from forthcoming Rob Halford & Family & Friends Christmas album, Celestial, featuring his brother Nigel on drums, nephew Alex (son of Priest bassist Ian Hill) on bass, sister Sue, on bells, and guitarists Robert Jones and Jon Blakey. Other tracks include "Deck The Halls," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Joy To The World," and "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing."


The new lineup has released several singles off their new album Nine (due September 20): "Darkside," "Happy Days," "Generational Divide," "Blame It On My Youth," and "I Really Wish I Hated You."

Odessa Kane

His new single and music video for "Tres Sietes" comes in advance of his upcoming studio album King K.A.N.E.

Thousand Below

A single for "Chemical" is streaming online from their second album Gone In Your Wake, along with a video for a new track, "Disassociate," as they tour in support of the release with Of Mice & Men.


Their third album Dreamer is being supported with a national headline tour that began October 11 in Ventura and ends in San Diego at Observatory North Park on November 23. A video for the album's fourth single "Message In A Bottle" is streaming online.

Cattle Decapitation

Their Geocidal Tendencies tour with Atheist kicks off November 22 in Austin and wraps at Brick by Brick on December 22.

Stone Temple Pilots

The reissue includes three unreleased songs from the 1994 KROQ Acoustic Christmas show, including a version of "Christmastime Is Here" from A Charlie Brown Christmas, as well as demos ("Unglued" and "Army Ants"), alternate takes ("Meat Plow" and "Interstate Love Song"), and acoustic recordings ("Big Empty").

Jacob Turnbloom

The Mrs. Magician and First Wave Hello guitarist formed Cheddar Goblin Records for his debut solo studio album, Cemetery Luau, due in October. After that, "I'm going to be releasing a new cassette tape with a lot of weird songs, demos, and instrumentals...it's kind of a sister tape to the 'death tape' that I released on Grizzly Records in 2012."
