New Mexican Disaster Squad have just informed us that they will be getting together to play "Rad Fest" next May.

Here is the statement from the band:

"So maybe calling it a "hiatus" would probably have been a better move (as this will take place only a year and a half after our official last show), but the four of us have decided to play a one-off show at Rad Fest in Wilmington, North Carolina this coming May (14th and 15th). Don’t get us wrong, No Friends is our hardcore band now and Virgins and Gatorface are still going to be releasing shit and playing shows. However, we’re all still great friends and saw this festival as an excellent chance to dust-off and bash-out the songs that were such an important part of our lives for almost 10 years. Don’t expect any tours or new records. We’re not planning on doing any other one-off shows either. Basically if we feel like playing, we will, and we want to right now. This is going to be a really great punk festival in a cool city with a great lineup of bands and thats the main reason we are doing this. Now that all the technical mumbo jumbo is out of the way, we can’t wait to see all of your sweaty, smiling faces in Wilmington NC in May!"

The band released the Peace With Nothing EP in 2007.

1. No Protection

It is with great sadness that we must report the tragic passing of Jerry Fuchs. Jerry was renown for his drumming with such bands as Turing Machine, The Juan Maclean, Maserati and !!! amongst others. We offer our condolences to everyone who knew and loved Jerry. He was an amazing musician and an even better man. Grateful for having the opportunity to know and work with Jerry, we will miss him fondly.

Is it punk? Hardcore? Garage? Make up your own mind about Cloak/Dagger’s latest full-length, Lost Art.

Colin Barth’s winding guitars juggle melody, punch and vitriol on par with the Avengers, John Reis, Mission of Burma and Greg Ginn. Play it loud on tracks such as “Deathbed Rebels” that push the punk envelope a bit further with frenzied, circle-pit fodder reminiscent of the Circle Jerks and Big Boys.

Underneath, snaking rolls of bass drive the proceedings with the flawless percussive thrust of the Ramones, Hot Snakes and bygone Boston hardcore heroes F.U.s, Jerry’s Kids. Over this Jason Mazzola distinguishes the band with a full, arching tenor that’s more bellow than scream. Mazzola’s delivery and lyrics shine especially on numbers like “Lower Eastada” and “Dead Idols,” where the band’s punk ‘n roll swagger takes over (think more Johnny Thunders, less Ray Cappo). After listening to Lost Art, you won’t be worried about categorizing the band, only when they go back on tour.

Lost Artis out out now on CD, LP and as a digital download. Each LP includes a coupon allowing a download of the songs in MP3 format. All formats are now available for in the Jade Tree Store as well as fine record stores and digital music services everywhere.

The band just returned from in Gainesville where they played to a sold out crowd on Halloween (check out Jason’s ).

Upcoming Dates:
11/28/2009 Richmond, VA @ Strange Matter (was Nanci Raygun)
12/19/2009 Richmond, VA @ Gallery 5
