British emo pop punks BASEMENT have joined the Fueled By Ramen Family, TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET have returned to the FAT Wreck Chords roster, Maryland rockers LIONIZE have joined The End Records, and San Diego melodic post hardcore / rock band THOUSAND BELOW have inked a deal with Rise Records. Most of the bands have release new music and it’s available right here – listen and see more details below.


BASEMENT have launched pre-order’s for their new album Promise Everything Deluxe, available March 3rd on Fueled By Ramen / Run For Cover Records in their Webstore! You can now stream their new version of the title track ‘Promise Everything’ in the video above!


TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET have returned to the FAT Wreck family! The label commented: “We couldn’t be more excited to share this news with you, because we’ve missed them terribly. Their infectious energy and positive vibes are hard to duplicate. Now, let’s get to the super fun stuff, their plans for 2017, which include a brand new album and touring.”

Guitarist/vocalist Ray Bottlerocket commented:

Fat Mike once told me, “Teenage Bottlerocket will always be a Fat band.” Guess what? Our new record, that we begin recording at the Blasting Room on March 5th, will be released on Fat Wreck Chords sometime this summer! We have always had a tight relationship with Fat and we are looking forward to working with them again. 2017 is going to be a busy year for TBR; we hit the road with Mr. T Experience in early April for a stint in California and Arizona. We are also shredding a one off at Reggie’s in Chicago, one of our favorite cities to play rock music. Personally, I’m looking forward to the March 31st show in Denver which is Brandon and I’s birthday. Playing a hometown show in Laramie, Wyoming on the 1st of April, that’s no joke! We’re heading back to Japan for the first time since 2009. I know I’m leaving out some shows so stay tuned for more tour announcements. Fully stoked! Stoked for the sick sesh! / Love. -Ray


Melodic post hardcore / rock band THOUSAND BELOW have released “Tradition,” a new song and music video, which can be streamed above.

Vocalist James Deberg commented on the signing with Rise Records:

“We’re beyond excited to have signed with Rise Records. Rise was the label that opened the door to the world of ‘heavy’ music for most of us, and it’s such an awesome opportunity to begin our story on such an amazing platform. The record we finished is without a doubt the best work I’ve ever been apart of, and is the emotional culmination of our past year’s hard work. When we heard the Rise team was interested in giving us a chance to jump-start our careers we were overwhelmed with excitement, and we’re beyond grateful for everything they’re doing to help us share our story. We felt ‘Tradition’ was a great song to come out the gate with as it showcases various aspects of our sound, and we really hope people connect with the vibe of the song and the emotion we put into it.”


Maryland groovy soul rockers LIONIZE have signed with The End Records to release their new reocord, co-produced by CLUTCH associate Jean Paul Gaster, J Robbins and the band themselves.

They commented:

“Our excitement about this album is hard to compare to our past releases because of the reaction to road-testing the material to a live audience internationally this past December. The shows took us to UK, through Europe, and ended in our home city of Washington DC. We played a set of mostly new songs that no fans had heard before – and the reaction was incredible. Instantly the energy and response was at the highest level of enthusiasm the band had ever received. The band is looking forward to forging our relationship with The End and bringing this sound to a vast new audience. The band was looking for the right home to settle into and introduce ourselves to the world and we are very happy to do it with The End.”
