Tony Molina 'In The Fade' is out today, vinyl shipping now

Guitar pop extraordinaire Tony Molina has released his highly anticipated new album, In The Fade. Out today via Summer Shade (a new imprint from Run For Cover Records curated by Madison Woodward of Fury, Object of Affection, and many other great bands), In The Fade manages to encapsulate all of the sounds and styles from each of Molina's previous releases, and combine them all into one immensely appealing album. In just 18 minutes, the record bounces from satisfyingly crunchy power chords, to scrappy jangle, to legitimately Beatles-esque arrangements, never letting the sheer hookiness lag for even a second.

To celebrate the album's release, Molina has shared a new music video for "Burn Everyone," a cut of perfect pop set to footage of a rare live appearance last month in San Francisco.

Tony Molina is one of modern guitar pop's best and most unique songwriters. The Bay Area musician is serious about the craft that goes into songwriter, and not much else. Following Kill The Lights, his more pared-back 2018 full-length, Molina found that some listener reactions threw him off. "I kept hearing: 'Oh, he's maturing, he's getting into other shit, writing more mature stuff," he explains. "I thought, 'Man, that's kinda lame, no I'm not...'" In The Fade finds Molina still incorporating the delicate '60s folk rock elements from his recent work, while also returning to some of the distortion and volume of his early days. The result is an album that offers something from every phase of his catalog, almost like a Tony Molina greatest hits, except with all new songs. Very few artists can credibly evoke everything from The Beatles, to The Fastbacks, to Weezer, to Belle and Sebastian, and even fewer can do that while still sounding completely like themselves--but that's why there's only one Tony Molina.

Runnner Shares New Single "Vines To Make It All Worth It"

Runnner, the musical moniker of LA-based songwriter Noah Weinman, has returned with a bite-sized new single, "Vines To Make It All Worth It." Out today via Run For Cover Records, the track follows Wienman's 2021 release, Always Repeating, and offers an enticing hint of where Runnner is heading next.

Stream "Vines To Make It All Worth It" everywhere

Clocking in at just one minute and thirty six seconds, "Vines To Make It All Worth It" wastes no time in introducing everything that makes Weinman's songwriting so compelling. The song builds on a foundation of fingerpicked banjo and gently swells towards a conclusion of layered vocals and shimmering keys that leaves the listener wanting more.

Weinman discussed the new single saying:
"I wrote 'Vines' a few years ago. It’s a tiny song about placing a lot of weight on seemingly small memories, and living with the love and frustration of those moments, both then and now. The title was inspired by a conversation with my sister and I want to thank her for that because I write most of my songs starting with the title."

Since 2017 Weinman has been releasing music as Runnner, and the songwriter has already amassed an impressive catalog of beautifully homespun indie folk. Runnner's music often manages to feel both deeply intimate and cinematically sweeping all at once, utilizing a unique mix of hifi/lofi dynamics and intricate arrangements that incorporate guitars, banjo, synths, piano, and most importantly, Weinman's warm vocal and inviting vocals. The songs often unfold in ways that are instantly appealing but reveal themselves even more with each listen, offering new musical and lyrical insights like an old friend that's still always surprising you.

Runnner have also announced an upcoming headlining show in Los Angeles at the Troubadour scheduled for September 8th. Stay tuned for more from Runnner.

Rival Schools Announce United By Fate Deluxe Edition 20th Anniversary Reissue of Legendary Debut LP

Rival Schools have teamed with Run For Cover Records for a 20th anniversary deluxe reissue of their legendary debut full-length, United By Fate. With the standard edition/digital due out October 28th and the deluxe/collectors editions in-stores in time for RSD Black Friday on November 25th, this re-release of United By Fate offers a chance to rediscover one of the most impressive and influential post-hardcore albums of all time.

United By Fate Deluxe Edition provides something for both longtime fans and those looking to discover this important album for the first time. In addition to the original 13 songs (all remastered for vinyl) the release includes every official United By Fate b-side, all of the Rival Schools tracks from their split with Onelinedrawing (never before released on vinyl), and the new take on "Holding Sand." The 23 total songs sound just as vibrant and essential today as they did over 20 years ago when they first came out. And for the ultimate fans, the collectors edition of the reissue is housed in a hard-cover linen case with stamped lettering, holding a hardcover sixty-four page book that includes handwritten lyrics and never-before-seen photos from the band’s personal archives.

Featuring a lineup of NYHC greats--guitarist/vocalist Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today Quicksand), drummer Sammy Siegler (Youth of Today, Judge, CIV), bassist Cache Tolman (Iceburn, Institute) and Ian Love (Burn, Atlantic/Pacific)--Rival Schools' 2001 debut is a post-hardcore masterpiece that managed to seamlessly blend the sheer kinetic energy of aggressive music with deeply melodic rock songwriting. Not only is the album packed with untouchably catchy and innovative songs, it also solidified Schreifels legacy as a trailblazer and created a blueprint that allowed many younger musicians in hardcore to feel comfortable with allowing themselves to grow and change creatively.

To mark the announcement Rival Schools have shared a new version of United By Fate standout, "Holding Sand." Recorded by Schreifels, the acoustic take strips off the distortion and churning bass of the original to reveal the expert song-craft that has always been at the core of the musician's storied career.

Today, Virginia band Turnover announces their fifth full-length album Myself in the Way due November 4th. Along with the album's announcement, Turnover shares the title track "Myself in the Way" featuring vocals from Brendan Yates of Turnstile, which arrives with the digitally-altered, montage-style visuals of the band performing and exploring nature spliced together with artwork from bassist Danny Dempsey.

Myself in the Way was born out of Turnover's desire to continue evolving their sound, making each body of work more exploratory than the last, but it's also a byproduct of the band's growth both as individuals and collectively. Armed with a flurry of new ways for the band to express themselves creatively, they challenged themselves to make their most ambitious body of work to date. Co-produced by frontman Austin Getz alongside frequent collaborator Will Yip, Myself In The Way sounds more expansive than anything they've done, intently honing in on sound design this time around, and yet it's wholeheartedly more intimate and self-reliant on their vision and execution.Turnover is also announcing a trio of headlining shows to take place this November and December to celebrate the release of Myself in the Way. The band will play Roadrunner in Boston, Brooklyn Steel in New York City and The Wiltern in Los Angeles. Tickets will be available for pre-sale beginning today at 10AM ET and will go on sale to the general public this Friday, July 29th at 12pm ET here.

Upcoming Live Dates
11/5 - Boston, MA @ Roadrunner
11/6 - Brooklyn, NY @ Brooklyn Steel
12/3 - Los Angeles, CA @ The Wiltern

Field Medic announces new album & releases video for "i had a dream that you died"

Pre-order "grow your hair long if you're wanting to see something that you can change" out 10/14

Field Medic, the long-running project of Los Angeles-based musician Kevin Patrick Sullivan, announces a new album today, titled grow your hair long if you're wanting to see something that you can change. Out October 14 via RFC, Field Medic’s fifth full-length sees him completely reinventing his recording approach. The result is an ambitious, fully-formed, and emotionally resonant collection of tracks: a triumphant picture of an artist diving deep into himself and coming out stronger than ever, both as a songwriter and as a person.

With the album announcement comes a new single and video, “i had a dream that you died”. “I had a dream that you died, somehow made it about me,” Sullivan sings, continuing, “so I keep fighting each day against this maelstrom / I feel like a chia pet, the way my hair looks dumb and my heart is made of stone.”

Watch the video for "i had a dream that you died":

grow your hair long contains some of Field Medic’s most immaculately arranged and ambitious recordings yet, like album opener “always emptiness”, the first track Sullivan brought into the studio. It also includes four self-recorded and self-produced tracks, some of which stemmed from his post-studio, late-night moments of clarity, like “i had a dream that you died”. Within these delicate and lovingly made songs, there’s an underlying and tangible hope someone finds a way out of their own struggles.

”Music is definitely a vessel for some form of healing,” says Sullivan. “Sometimes the best way to get out of your own head is to just get to work. Making this album helped me find my happiness again.

Beginning October 2022, Field Medic embarks on a headlining fall tour through the US and Canada, with support from Sadurn, Derek Ted, and Juliet Sunflower. For the first time, he’ll be accompanied by a band in addition to his trusty boombox. Find a full list of tour dates below; buy tickets here.
