THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES have just put the finishing touches on their debut full length, Oxeneers or The Lion Sleeps When its Antelope Go Home (JT1097) and in order to whet your appetite for a new batch of their rousing and twitchy punk, the band has decided to take their riotous act on the road. Expect all the hits from last year’s EP as well as an armful of new songs, guaranteed to knock the socks right off your feet. Joining them this time out will be Indiana-based quintet , Madison Wisconsin’s , and Lookout Record’s .

Please consult the These Arms Are Snakes for updates.


STATISTICS, whom had been touring Canada with Jade Tree homies DESPISTADO, have sadly pulled out of their remaining dates due to unforeseen circumstances. While Denver Dalley and crew were torn on the decision, the boys leave on the best of terms. Be sure to look out for more STATISTICS dates stateside and beyond in the coming months. DESPISTADO will certainly continue to whip the North into a frenzy as they finish out the tour and plan their US invasion.


Beginning today the considerate folks in PEDRO THE LION, still celebrating the release of Achilles’ Heel (JT1095), will be posting a new live MP3 everyday from the Summer tour; a collection of new songs, old songs, sound checks, record store and radio station performances. Each MP3 will be posted at 2pm (CT) and will be available for 24 hours only. Think of it as a audio documentary of the tour…and all you need is the username and password found in the liner notes your copy of the Achilles’ Heel CD and LP.

Please consult the Pedro the Lion for current dates.


ONELINEDRAWING’S recent full length, The Volunteers LP/CD (JT1093), has been busy turning heads and breaking hearts since its late March release. So, in keeping with that momentum, we are excited to announce that this coming June 13th at midnight, M2 will be premiering director Tess Ernst’s video for “We Had A Deal” as part of Subterranean. You can link to join us in a steady harassment, voting the badhair bandits of Nickleback exiled to Canada while giving Jonah Matranga and crew some props. While you’re at it you can always drop in on the message board who recently added ONELINEDRAWING into rotation on The Wedge. And if that’s not enough the video has also been spining this week on MTV’s new channel which is broadcast on tons of college campuses across the U.S. For anyone taking care of a few lost credit hours this summer be sure to check it out and let them know what you think!
