Volcom joins the vinyl party

Volcom is the latest label to produce exclusive vinyl. Following labels like Victory Records and Fat Wreck Chords who have each launched vinyl reissue series, the label will be releasing a series of bimonthly seven-inches. The subscription-based series will include music from Birds of Avalon, Dark Meat, Earthless, Monotonix, Red Fang, Rtx, Totimoshi, Turbonegro, Tweak Bird, Valient Thorr, Witch and Year Long Disaster.

Every other month – beginning in February with Turbonegro/Year Long Disaster – subscription holders will receive one of the splits. Fat Wreck Chords took a similar approach with monthly seven inches from NOFX to considerable acclaim. Some – but not all – of that music ended up on NOFX’s last album, Wolves in Wolves’ Clothing.

The Mars Volta: “Wax Simulcra”

With their new record due out January 29, 2008, The Mars Volta have launched a new “webisode” series in anticipation of The Bedlam In Goliath.

Though billed as a “webisode,” the clip appears to be a fairly straightforward video for the first single “Wax Simulcra,” the video includes what appears to be a surreal Birthday party. It’s difficult to explain, but let’s just say that it’s a long, long way from “One Armed Scissor.”

Every Time I Die addresses appearance with Fall Out Boy

The seemingly innocuous live cover of Pantera’s “Walk” from Every Time I Die‘s Keith Buckley and Fall Out Boy has apparently created some backlash against the Buffalo hardcore band. Guitarist Andy Williams addressed it:

Long time ago, when we were first starting out we would play places like Chicago and Milwaukee. We would play with bands like Kill the Slave Master, Extinction, Race Traitor and Arma Angelus All great bands from that area at the time. We would joke around and fuck around with the dudes in that band cuz they were our friends.

On [a recent] tour Pete [Wentz] came to a show in Chicago and danced for us and then we stayed with them. He gave me a demo and said “hey man, I know you wont like this. Its my new band. We’re a pop punk band!” I chuckled and didn’t really take him serious. I went back and listened to it. I have to tell you honestly, I really didn’t like it. He was right. But I gave it the benefit of a doubt cuz he always treated me with respect.

But there is a bit of history between us and those boys. Nothing changes when you consider someone a friend.
