Who's number 1?
Head over here to check it out.
Straight from the band's Myspace page: "So there are a couple of vocal lines I'd like to have a huge group of people shout along with me on the record. Don't think gang vocals like on hardcore records. Think more like a group of people chanting at a protest or a church choir or something. The lines are "Armies of the half dead with their arms to the sky" and "Not Prayer". I only state that so if any of you religious folks are shy about that you may want to avoid the task. We'll be meeting at Andy's studio this Sunday at 3. (March 1st) Post here if you're interested. Its going to be a bit crazy to organize so it may take a few runs through. We'll put your name in the credits and you'll be heard around the world Reply back if you're in so we can get a count on how many we should expect.
3416 south 300 west

James Bockas, Eagle Scout and cornerback for the Weber High Warriors by day, leads a different, less apple-pie life by night.
Ruddy-cheeked with crystal-blue eyes, the 17-year-old comes from a strong Mormon family, mows lawns for gas money and is a member of Straight Edge, a movement that, on its face, is a parent's dream: Its adherents abstain from alcohol, drugs and smoking.

Did anyone go see his show on the 12th?
Anyone remember this show? I know I do. Great acts from Danzig to the Notorious B.I.G. to Quicksand and Sunny Day Real Estate graced the stage of the Jon Stewart Show in the early '90s. Sadly, those videos aren't online. But here's what we could dig up.
We'll start off with Mr. Stewart introducing "one of his favorite bands of all time," Bad Religion...
One of my favorite bands of all time.

What are the odds?
Salt Lake Tribune -- A 21-year man was taken to a North Ogden fire department Wednesday afternoon with a gunshot wound to his eye and police have arrested a second man for shooting him.
Just after 2 p.m., firefighters at North View Fire Department heard a man banging on the station door and yelling that his friend needed an ambulance, said North View fire Deputy Chief Dave Wade.
Paramedics went outside and found the 21-year-old man conscious and breathing in his friend's car holding a towel over his bloody eye, Wade said. They treated him, put him on a gurney and sent him to Ogden Regional Medical Center in an ambulance, Wade said.
The man's friend drove to the fire station from a residence about a mile away, Wade said.
According to Harrisville Police Chief Max Jackson, the man who was shot had been in a fight or dispute with another man who grabbed the gun and shot the man. The bullet apparently only grazed the 21-year-old, but he may lose the eye, Jackson said.
The shooter was arrested.
In addition, Street Dogs have added a new section entitled "Veteran's Aid" to their website, a resource guide which provides links to organizations helping veterans transition back into society with mental health services, housing, financial aid and more.
The single, "War After The War," is due out March 10th, 2009.
That's their name.
NOFX is planning on releasing a DVD and new full length soon. The DVD is the tour diary/reality show ”BACKSTAGE PASSPORT” which aired last year on the FUSE network. “Backstage Passport” followed NOFX on a tour stretching from Japan, to Russia, to South Africa. The 8-episode release has ben slated for March 17th.
This is what they have to say about their new record, available April 29: "That’s right, NOFX have your coffee table in mind this spring with the release of their 12th full length studio record, Coaster. Not only will Coaster protect your favorite end table from that offending gin and juice cocktail, but music will also be included! That means 12 brand new songs to sip that drink to. And for all you athletic types, the record will also be available on a vinyl 12” Frisbee!

The band released New Lexicon in 2008.
Mike Patton—of Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Fatomas,and Dillinger Escape Plan at one point—has just finished his first feature length film score for the new Jason Statham action pic, Crank 2: High Voltage.
Crank was completely ridiculous but fun, and I'm sure Crank 2 will be somewhere along the same lines. Here's a plot synopsis: "In spite of having fallen a mile from a helicopter at the end of CRANK, Chev Chelios faces a Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working."
Here's the red band (read: R-rated) trailer. Now just imagine some Mike Patton-esque craziness to go along with it. Should be good times.

Someone took money from OCL and Raptor city.
Because of this we are short on the money we need to book the venue for Trash Talk, No Truce, and Steel Nation. It's kind of sad that someone would care more about themselves than being able to have good bands come to UT. If you can help by donating any money at all call or text Alex or JP at 801-814-4566, 801-645-0894. Thanks.

Reviver - Versificator
8 of 10 Stars
Reviver is a band that I have only recently discovered due to the fortunate tour routing on their upcoming tour. They come from Salt Lake City and they bring with them a unique style of melodic hardcore/punk that is quickly addicting and very enjoyable. ‘Versificator’ is the band’s debut full-length out on Exigent Records, it was released last year in July and it a powerful debut... Get the rest here.
Dead Format -- Torche's newest release, "Healer / Across The Shields" 12" is now available from Blue Collar Distro. This features 2 tracks from the "Meanderthal" album and 2 brand new songs on the flipside, and the DVD includes 2 videos made for the above mentioned album tracks. There are 3 vinyl colors (black, orange, or purple) and an exclusive preorder-only t-shirt is available as well.
