Every Last Stitch – The Mizzerables (WHOA-0015)

Every Last Stitch, the debut album from The Mizzerables, is an 11 song artillery shot, whistling by your ear and blowing you off of your feet. Part therapy session, part declaration of independence, The Mizzerables tell you all what it’s like to love, long and learn life’s lessons the hard way.

From the single, “Bottoms Up” to more aggressive tracks like “Everything I Need,” “Rise With Me,” and “Every Last Stitch” through the infectious hooks on tracks “Fourteen,” “Beauty Queen,” “Fatal Valentine” and “Scarlett Letters,” Every Last Stitch gives you everything punk and rock fans could ever want.

The single, “Bottoms Up,” will be released July 9th on iTunes, Amazon, and at the band’s bandcamp page, and the accompanying video will be out on BlankTV (dategoeshere). The full album will be available on iTunes, Amazon, and at the band’s bandcamp page on July 23rd. CD & Vinyl release dates will be forthcoming.

The Mizzerables will be premiering the video at the Whoapacolypse show July 13 at the Token Lounge in Westland, MI. The digital album release show will be on Thursday, July 25th at Liars Club in Chicago, IL.

The bulk of the album was engineered and mixed by Adam Instefjord, who has also worked with Lights Alive… (etc waiting for list) at the band’s Chicago studio. The final track, “Scarlet Letters,” was engineered and mixed by Jeff Dean at Million Yen Studios. Jeff has worked on albums from The Bomb, Dead Ending, Samiam, and more. The album was mastered by Doug McBride at Gravity Studios, where he has worked with acts such as Veruca Salt and Smashing Pumpkins.

Music like this, by artists like these, is the glue of the world. It’s what holds it all together. Without this, life would be meaningless. These are the kinds of tunes that will make you want to run up on the roof and sing them at the top of your lungs for everyone to hear. So check them out, you won’t be sorry.

The Wanton Looks – The Wanton Looks (WHOA-0013)

The Wanton Looks first album is a 12-track hard-driving tramp through love, lust and the occasional schizophrenic episode over a soundtrack of forceful yet melodic guitars and a propulsive backbeat.

Long known in the Chicagoland area for their frenetic, take no prisoners live shows, the Wanton Looks have masterfully translated that energy to this record.

The self-titled album is full of tight hooks, simple and poetic vocals and and an occasional, unexpected guitar solo that will knock you on your ass.

Influenced by their experiences in the punk scene, folk bands, their love of Motown and more, the Wanton Looks bring a powerful brand of distorted, heartfelt (and a little edgy) rock and roll the likes of which you rarely find.

I WILL SMASH YOUR FACE INTO A JELLY!!! – Mix Tape Monday 4/29/13

Every now and then you have a morning where nothing goes right. On those days you just want to listen to something fast, loud and profane while you punch your fist through your cubicle wall.

So here it is, a playlist of pissed off bands singing songs about being pissed off.

Enjoy it or don’t, we couldn’t care less. If you don’t, though, you can get bent.

Whoa! Records Gives You the D! – Mix Tape Monday 4/15/13

Clear your afternoon, this is going to take a while.

This week we bring you some of Detroit’s best punk and ska music. We’ve got 80s hardcore and 90s pop punk, ska, old school shit from the MC5 and the Stooges all the way up to kids and old bastards who still rock the clubs in and around the D. Old or new, we’ve built the best damn Detroit playlist that Spotify would allow.

Here are just a few of the bands we wanted to share on this playlist but couldn’t find on Spotify.

Run For Your Life: A Tribute to the Beatles – Mix Tape Monday 4/8/13

They were punks before punk existed, and forty three years ago this week, they broke up.

There’s no phony Beatlemania here, these guys were doing shit that resonates across genres to this day.

Sex, drugs and rock-and-roll? Check.

Telling the establishment to fuck off? Check.

Doing it all on their own terms? Check.

To celebrate the Fab Four, we’ve compiled a list of the top punk and ska Beatles covers, spanning the entirety of their careers. Enjoy!

The Mizzerables to shoot a video for Bottoms Up in Detroit this Saturday!

mizzerablesCome Monday morning, are you going to make your poor coworkers hear about all the shit you didn’t do this weekend? Hell no! You’re going to go to the Toepfer House in Warren for the Mizzerables video shoot this Saturday (April 6)!

Fresh off of their east coast tour, your favorite pop-punk misfits will be rocking the Toepfer House and shooting a video for their song Bottoms Up. This is your chance to make your parents proud when you show them the video on YouTube where you are shirtless, Miller Lite held aloft, screaming the lyrics to your favorite Mizzerables song.

Face it, the work week sucks. Get out to the Toepfer House this weekend and show the world that you still know how to have fun.

Bands start at 9 p.m. and the video shoot will be over by 1:30 a.m. Cover is a mere $5 and as always at the Toepfer House, it’s BYOB.

But I’m in Chicago and I like punk rock, why can’t I see the Mizzerables this weekend?

Good news, you sad bastard, you can see them!

The Mizzerables will be playing 27 Live in Evanston, Ill. Friday (April 5). Doors are at 8. More information on the show can be found here.
