Our buddies in the Mizzerables shot their video for One More Day this weekend, so we thought we’d put together a mix of our favorite music videos. You can listen to the tunes on Spotify or take a trip down memory lane with the videos below:
We wrap up our journey through the history of punk with the 2000s, a time when being a punk band meant a lot more than knowing how to scowl and play three chords. With bands adding elements of folk, pop, celtic music and straight-ahead rock and roll, the definition of punk got much more hazy. It’s an interesting — and very exciting — time for punk music. Punk’s not dead, it’s just not sneering at you as much anymore.
This week we bring you a diverse mix from bands such as The Ataris, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Dropkick Murphys, Against Me!, The Gaslight Anthem, Jimmy Eat World as well as songs from our friends in Slo Poke, Wrist Rocket, Common Rider, Break Anchor, The Wanton Looks, Few and Far Between, Cruise Italy, P.T.’s Revenge and the Mizzerables.
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 Whoapocalypse is coming, where do you want to be when it does?
Don’t worry, the world isn’t going to end, but it may feel like it if you miss this show. Could you live with yourself if you missed the premiere of The Mizzerables video for their new single, Bottoms Up? Of course not, so get to the Token Lounge in Westland on July 13.
While you’re there, you’re going to see some kick ass punk rock from Bottle Kids (Chicago), Due North, Cruise Italy, Wrist-Rocket, The Mizzerables and P.T.’s Revenge.
