"Not Afraid is the new belgian hardcore sensation featuring ex members of Justice and True Colors ( Paco's still on the mic). They got together and started belting out songs, playing hardcore the way they have always loved it. There's hints of that early 80's rage, late 80's power and even some early 90's melody but all in all it is safe to say that genuine passion and raw energy is what ties it all together. The 'Be Yourself' EP features Not Afraid's first batch of songs and by the looks of things we can only expect great things from them in the future." 
Straight And Alert

Ampere

New album, Like Shadows, from Massachusetts own Ampere. This album has 15 tracks of raw yet beautiful chaos and it drops in early June via No Idea Records. Keep your eye out for that!
I don't have a download link for this record yet, but I do have a track for you to stream. This is the second track off the album entitled Escapism Pt. II
Ampere is your average DIY punk/skramz band, so I don't believe there are any pre-orders available. If there are, I'm not aware of it, so just keep your eyes open in early June for the release of this amazing album.

Until then, enjoy this track and get super stoked on this new album and this band.

Beau Navire

Beau Navire's last EP Life Moves was pretty amazing, and this LP is a huge step up. I am absolutely enthralled with this band and their music. They work their asses off to make such amazing stuff and it's easily noticeable within the first listen of any of their material. If you've never listened to these guys, please change that. Beau Navire are a fairly new screamo band from Oakland,California and are highly recommended for fans of Ampere, Loma Prieta, and Pianos Become The Teeth. Currently, this album is not released in the US so keep watch for that.

Tracklist:
1.Hours
2.The Looking Glass
3.A Book, A Mind
4.Reinventing The Wheel
5.Respire (Meta)

1994!/Snowing/Boys and Sex/Algernon Cadwallader Split

Personally, I am so stoked on this split. These are some of my favorite bands in screamo/post hardcore and to have them do a split together makes me all fuzzy inside.

TheDiscordOfAForgottenSketch

TheDiscordOfAForgottenSketch are a band from Montréal, Canada. Last year, they were on a 4 way split with Beau Navire, Carrion Spring and Te Lloraria Un Puto Rio and they also have a couple split vinyl records coming in the next year and a tape version of their album release by Dwyer Records from Ottawa.

They are definitely a band to get in to. If your a fan of Daïtro, Funeral Diner, or any of the bands listed above, then this band is a must have in your music library.

Within the last couple of weeks, they've released a new album and I suggest you get your hands on that. They've got it up for download on their bandcamp, in which you can name your own price to pay. 50 cents or 5 dollars, you need to own this album. I expect many great things to come to these guys.

Tracklist:
1. Pluto
2. Zombie, Zombies
3. Ghost Town
4. I'm Here
5. Hall Of Famers
6. A Punk Band
7. Tdoafs

Beastie Boys

Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 is a throwback to the days when the Beastie Boys ruled New York; when you could read 100 pages worth of articles on the Moog organ in their Grand Royal magazine; when you could buy Ben Davis and Fuct in the XLarge Store on Tompkins Square and then skate over to catch them play a surprise punk set with Murphy’s Law at Coney Island High. At the same time, Hot Sauce isn’t just for veteran fans; it’s the rare case of something brand new that replaces the “Greatest Hits” album as a primer for newbies; a perfect soundtrack for 30 more years of endless summer.

Balance and Composure

Balance and Composure have done it again by proving to me that they can create an even more mindfully catchy and amazingly structured set of songs. Separation far surpassed anything I had in mind for this band and then some, no song feels like a filler song and each one compliments the next. What is interesting about Balance and Composure is that they have three guitarists to make this trifecta of amazing melody and harmony that works perfectly together. I can even say, confidently at that, that this has one upped Title Fight’s Shed and will be on repeat for the next few weeks or so. Go out and buy this record, buy some other merch, go see them when they come through your city on tour with The Dear Hunter and Dredg, anything. Just support good people that make good music.

Pre-order's for this album are currently all sold out, but support these awesome guys and buy some of their other merch that is available!

Tracklist:
1.Void
2.Separation
3.Quake
4.Stonehands
5.I Tore You Apart In My Head
