Smoke or Fire are playing their only show in 2014! Grab a 12 pack and don’t miss it!
Honor Is All We Know is Rancid's eighth studio album and was produced by Bad Religion guitarist and Epitaph CEO Brett Gurewitz. The album is the follow up to their 2009 release Let the Dominoes Fall.
This album is unique in that it is filled with growing insight of a band who has been doing this for a while now: it feels natural and organic, written without an agenda or bone to pick, rather the culmination of lives lived largely with a keen interest in the world and a sense of brotherhood.
Pre-orders for Rancid's …Honor Is All We Know here
Get your questions ready because Bill Stevenson from the Descendents will be doing a “We’ll Do It Live Session” tomorrow on Punknews from 8-9PM EST.
Last year, Decibel brought you Carcass’s first sustained domestic tour in five years, as the reanimated death metal legends introduced North America to long-awaited comeback album Surgical Steel. In 2015, we’re stoking fans’ salivary glands again, offering the first live taste of death metal icons At the Gates’ incredible 19-years-in-the-making At War With Reality. Presented by Century Media, IndieMerchstore.com, Nuclear Blast Mailorder, Handshake Inc., Lace Music, Deathwish Inc and Profound Lore, the 2015 Decibel Magazine Tour will slaughter the souls of North American concertgoers for 15 unforgettable dates, offering a bounty of extreme trailblazers making their best music right now.
“Super-stoked at finally getting to be part of the Decibel tour!”enthuses At the Gates frontman Tomas Lindberg. “A great mag, with great people behind it! And finally being able to rip out new stuff in front of a U.S. club audience? Sweet! The bill looks amazing, too! The most relevant hardcore band on the planet and the fiercest old-school death metal band on the same night as us? Excited!”
Four-time Decibel cover stars Converge continue to not just push, but outright obliterate the boundaries of extreme music, most recently with our favorite album of 2012, All We Love We Leave Behind. “We are excited to be part of this fantastic and diverse tour,” says frontman Jacob Bannon, who designed the tour logo and art. “For me, At the Gates are one of the most important bands in contemporary heavy music. It will be an honor to tour the country with them.”
Boasting present and past members of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and At the Gates, old-school death-dealing supergroup Vallenfyre can’t wait to debut songs from 2014’s critically acclaimed sophomore stunner, Splinters. “This will be Vallenfyre’s first U.S. tour, and what a tour,” beams frontman Gregor Mackintosh. “I think this is the most diverse and exciting bill of any metal tour I have seen this year. Great to be a part of it. We will be injecting some British filth into your unsuspecting American ears. Cheers.”
We know you can’t wait to GO to war with this lineup either, so here’s your chance to score a great deal and avoid standing in line. There will be a number of VIP premium packages available in each market, providing you with a limited edition T-shirt, 18 x 24 tour poster, “Skip the Line” pass, exclusive digital tour issue of Decibel Magazine, a coupon for 15% off a purchase on Indie Merch’s webstore, and free digital sampler from Century Media. The price of this package is less than you would spend on a ticket and a tour shirt at the show!

Keep You is the band's third full-length release and first with Epitaph Records. While Pianos Become the Teeth have evolved within their sound, front man Kyle Durfey insists Keep You is more of “a musical growth [than] a departure”. Dealing with subjects such as mortality and communication, the band continues to put forward music that is both profoundly honest and deeply personal. Their intensity is ever-present, expressed now with heaviness and raw emotion instead of distortion and screams. Keep You is a mature leap forward for Pianos Become the Teeth as they have embraced a beautifully pining and ambitious rock sound.
Brooklyn Vegan calls this "their best material yet." Noisey asserts that "a lack of screaming does not equate a lack of intensity." And according to SPIN, "luminous guitar swell with furor."
Pianos Become The Teeth will celebrate Keep You with a few special record release shows with Gates and Frameworks at the end of October. The band will also embark on a US tour with Circa Survive and Title Fight this November through December.
