Even though The Promise Ring has moved on to the Anti label, we can’t let all of you fans forget about the many wonderful releases that they had on Jade Tree! From the 7" that started it all, Falsetto Keeps Time (JT1023) to the pop fest Electric Pink (JT1048) CDS, The Promise Ring was one of Jade Tree’s greatest pleasures. The band is on tour right now with Jimmy Eat World, which makes this a perfect time to catch these two friendly acts tearing it up across the states.

What the hell are you waiting for? The Fury Resurrection (JT1077) CD EP has been out for almost a month and you still haven’t picked it up? Don’t sleep on this dose of true-grit punk rock. This band burned themselves out before they even started and all that remains is this testament to punk’s true passion and, well, fury. Even the almighty rag Alternative Press said that "editors prayers" were answered with the release of this CD EP. What more can we say? Get off your ass and buy buy buy!

Strike Anywhere is still out on the road promoting their near year old Change Is A Sound (JT1060) LP/CD. This time, the revolutionary lads return to Europe for the second time in under a year to treat audiences to more politically charged and socially conscious good times. After months of constant touring, Strike Anywhere is simply awe-inspiring live and should not be missed by European fans.
