Tom Gabel of Against Me! interviewed Chris Hannah of Propagandhi at the recent Harvest of Hope Festival. The two musicians discuss the festival, recording with Bill Stevenson, Fat Mike, metal and more.
Of particular note was the band’s explanation for leaving longtime home, Fat Wreck Chords:
Fat just didn’t express any interest or enthusiasm in the record we were making. We asked if they wanted to do it and the only responses we would get from Mike were some stories about how he was too busy too negotiate the terms because he was gambling in Vegas. Obviously, that is not the level of enthusiasm you want to have behind something you’ve worked really hard on, so we just thought we’d do it on our own.
You can check out the interview here.

The first video from Green Day‘s previously announced 8th studio album 21st Century Breakdown is set to air on April 24th. The video will be for first single “Know Your Enemy”.
Speaking in an interview with MTV regarding the video, director Matthew Cullen (who has also made videos for Weezer, Beck, Modest Mouse, R.E.M and Velvet Revolver) commented:
Oh, this was definitely the biggest video I’ve ever done. It has a lot of really big visuals, because I was trying to match the song, which is huge. There’s a lot of symbolism that I tried to mirror [in the shoot]. I took a lot of influence from Green Day’s lyrics and the imagery of [street artist] Banksy. It may not sound like a lot, but it’s huge visually. It’s gonna be a new experience for a lot of their fans. I mean, it’s still Green Day, but it’s just bigger.”
21st Century Breakdown is sheduled for release on May 15th
