San Diego melodic skate punks CASTOFF have released the stream of their new self-titled EP, premiering today through New Noise Magazine. The EP will be available as a digital download on Friday, August 5th through Castoff’s Bandcamp, with the proceeds going to Help a Mother Out. Additionally, if you purchase any releases through the Bird Attack Records store you’ll receive a free download of the Castoff EP.
The band will be kicking off a string of East Coast shows with Invaluable this weekend (see dates below), along with an appearance at Punk Rock Holiday in Slovenia.
Help a Mother Out works to improve baby and family well being by increasing access to diapers for families in need.
A family’s access to a reliable supply of clean diapers reduces the risk of infectious disease outbreaks, improves baby’s health and comfort, and enables baby’s participation in early care and education programs. Our vision is a day when every baby has a healthy supply of diapers.

About the band:
In the spring of 2015, Castoff went into Doubletime Studios to work with Jeff Forrest (Blink 182, Rocket From the Crypt, As I Lay Dying) to track and mix their first effort with the current lineup. The Lines and Passages EP was the result and was mastered by Jason Livermore at Blasting Room Studios. It was quickly picked up and released in early July on Bird Attack Records and Morning Wood Records. The band continued to play shows through late Fall 2015 to support the release.
The band recently released their first official full-length album First Step to Recover on Bird Attack Records and Morning Wood Records. It was recorded and mixed by Patrick Burkholder (Wraths) at Screaming Leopard Studios and mastered by Daryl Phenneger at The Freq Zone Studio.
