Crime In Stereo has announced the first of several upcoming releases. The CD / LP Selective Wreckage will feature ten unreleased songs chronicling the band’s evolution from 2006’s The Troubled Stateside to `07’s Is Dead. The set is not a b-sides collection however. Guitarist Alex Dunne explained:
Originally we planned on doing two separate 7″ EP vinyl records because they were two separate sessions. The side of songs recorded after Troubled Stateside features the 3-songs from the never-released split 7″ EP with Capital, another recording of “When The Women Come Out To Dance” from our free EP on Nitro and “Love,” a song that never made the STATESIDE album which I think is better than anything on that record….
DEAD was a difficult record to make and we had to leave off some songs that were really strong – but we just didn’t have enough time to finish them at the time before having to leave to tour, which was frustrating. Three of these songs are more energetic and upbeat and another is really slow and sad, but I love it.
The record is set for a September 30th release. In addition, Bridge Nine Records will be re-releasing the band’s The Troubled Stateside on vinyl on September 16th. The band previously announced plans to release three full lengths and two EPs in the next 12 months.
Crime In Stereo will tour soon with Fake Problems, following which they’ll join the Easycore Tour with New Found Glory, A Day To Remember, Four Year Strong and the International Superheroes of Hardcore.

Nashville’s Be Your Own Pet are calling it quits. The band announced:
To all of our fans, we are sad to bring you the news that our upcoming shows in the UK are going to be our last as a band. We thank you for all your love and support these past few years. It’s been a blast, but the time has come for the four of us to go our separate ways.
Those dates can be found here.
The band released Be Your Own Pet in 2006 via Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace! label, followed by Get Awkward this year. The band specialized in bratty, adolescent garage punk, with much of their critical acclaim coming from indie rock circles. This, combined with recent disparaging comments made on the Warped Tour made them a polarizing band among more traditional punk fans.

HORSE the Band has recruited a new drummer in the form of Bleeding Kansas‘ Daniel Pouliot:
We’ve known Daniel for like 5 years. He was there when Nathan did his first show on vocals. He has watched the ages of Karuza, Alex Duddy, Eel Eye, Christopher Prophet, and our beloved Jon Karel from the 12 Looks Like You come and go. He is also the hardest-hitting, most brutal, passionate, smartest, coolest drummer any of us have ever seen in 10 years of touring this planet “Earth”. Any of you who have seen Bleeding Kansas understand, we now have the most brutal drummer ever. He would have been our drummer like 5 years ago but he was finishing up college.

After four years as a band, Ottawa’s the Fully Down has announced their break-up.
The band released this statement on MySpace:
As some of you may have heard, we’ve decided to call it a day. It was not an easy decision for any of us, but it got to the point where people began to become interested in other things, and we couldn’t put enough into the band anymore. As people began to leave to pursue other projects, it became harder and harder to find replacements and still believe that we were the same band. In no way is there any bad blood between any us, and I’m sure some of will work together again on some new musical endeavors.
