RAD.

I was really into skateboarding when I was a little kid. Through skating and specifically Thrasher Magazine @thrashermag, I discovered Skate Rock Vol. 3 when it was released in 1985. I was too young to fully understand what I was submerging myself in, but through skating and specifically punk, I started on a journey that would teach me what was right and wrong, good and bad, and ultimately I developed moral guidelines though subcultures and the people who were part of it all.

Here we are in 2020, and as part of the Black Lives Matter movement, a protest was organized here in San Diego by skaters, for skaters, and for anyone who is an ally. The energy was unlike anything I have experienced. It's smart, calculated, and it's roots are interwoven among the things that will ultimately impact society and possibly change this world. The speakers I heard at this protest were 100% spot on. The masses that came out to skate were spot on. After today I have hope for this cruel world.

Skate or die!

CIA veterans who monitored crackdowns abroad see troubling parallels in Trump handling of protests

Rep. Spanberger and others say that, “They know this playbook.”

If it ever feels like we find recent events exceedingly worrisome, it’s only because we LIVED it back in the ‘80s.

Please be watchful.

WASHINGTON - The scenes have been disturbingly familiar to CIA analysts accustomed to monitoring scenes of societal unraveling abroad - the massing of protesters, the ensuing crackdowns and the awkwardly staged displays of strength by a leader determined to project authority. In interviews and posts...

F**k it all up!!!
lyrics
F**k it all up
I don't give a sh*t
I don't give a sh*t
f**k it all up
Turn that flag
upside down
rip it down throw it
on the ground
don't trust the system
it's too corrupt
the time has come to
f**k it all up
Throw that brick
break that glass
desecrate
destroy it smash
tear it all down
rip it all up
burn it to a cinder
f**k it all up

“It's important...because we’re important.” Throwing back to earlier this month with Ruin By Design (ruinbydesign.bandcamp.com) at Sound of Music Studios for their split release show with Genosha.

“Merger” via Settle For It Records (sfirecords.bandcamp.com) is now live and streaming everywhere and even better, you can also hit up a local show for physical copies and y’know, mosh for real.

Hey everyone,
Bandcamp is waiving their fees for artists again today, which means 100% of purchases go directly to the bands without a cut taken out.

With that being said, you can check out our album The Prophecy on Bandcamp, as well as a new 8-bit version of our song "Departure," which we're uploading as "name your price".

Thanks to our pal Brian O'Leary for the alternate version of the song 🤘🏻

Because Bandcamp is rad, we're going to try to do a thing.

Since we don't know yet when our next show will be, on May 1 - from 12:00am to 11:59pm, we're going to sell these shirts direct through bandcamp. We will be mailing them on June 1 or before if possible.

These are super limited - first come first serve. Ladies' S-L available.

Always liked this HellpieBand song...

HellpieBand at the Sparta Inn late last month. We first saw the band in Leesburg, VA of all places. "Here's to Your Hellth", a six-track acoustic reverie/riot on everything that aches is undoubtedly one of the best local releases this year.

A couple copies of the DT Volume 1 comp are still available on Discogs from Wax Moon and Smash! records. We still have a handful of copies, you can DM us if you need a copy. We suggest going to Discogs first to support the local businesses that have it for sale. You can also hit up the bands that are on the comp, they might still have extra copies too.
