There’s lots going on in the Against Me! camp. The band recently announced the formation of their own record label, Total Treble Music. Within the US and Canada, the label will be distributed via RED/MRI and will be the home of all future Against Me! releases. Having spent their career on both major and independent labels of varying sizes, the creation of Total Treble Music will afford the band full control of their creative and professional destiny moving forward. The band hopes to partner with other labels for the rest of the world for future releases.

In addition to the band’s label news, Against Me! are gearing up for the release of their brand new two-song 7″/digital release. Recorded at the storied Smart Studios in Madison, WI, prior to its closing, “Russian Spies”/”Occult Enemies” will be released via Sabot Productions on June 14.

The band kicked off a new headlining tour on the last day of May that will continue through June 21st.  Immediately following the headline tour, the band will be performing as part of this year’s Vans Warped Tour through August. Additionally, the band will be performing a number of dates supporting blink-182 and Rancid in Canada from August 25-31.  For all Against Me! tour dates and ticketing info, hit up their website.

The band recently shredded the The Paradise in Boston, MA to bits.  TWRY photographer Matt Wood braved the passionate crowd to capture the band’s performance.  Check out his gallery from the show below.

Concert Gallery: B.O.M.B.Fest (Day 2) at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT

June 1, 2011 by  
Filed under Latest Photo Galleries

This past Memorial Day Weekend the non-profit B.O.M.B.Fest returned to Connecticut.  Standing for “Bring Our Music Back” the festival pairs local up and coming acts with larger more nationally known acts to help the local music community gain some exposure and to enlighten music fans to the talented local musicians that are often right in their own back yard.

This year’s event grew so quickly that it was moved from the original planned location of Western Connecticut State University to The Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT.

While there were a few hiccups with the lineup due to George Clinton falling ill and having to drop off the bill (hope you’re feeling better George!) and a few acts having to cancel (Wiz Khalifa, The Dum Dum Girls and Miss PussyCat) for unknown reasons, the spirit of the festival was strong and the music was flowing over.  Not only did they mix local acts with national acts but the styles of music were as diverse as the day was long from Weezer to The Cool Kids to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, there truly was a little something for everyone!  The sun even came out for the day!

Oh, and we did mention that B.O.M.B.Fest is a non-profit so where does your money go for all that great music?  Well, B.O.M.B.Fest is passing on the musical torch to future generations.  Part of the money you spend will help kids who don’t have it so good….like the ones at The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp and Connecticut Children’s Hospital.  For more details on that, visit the festival’s official site.

So for those of you who made it out to the festival – which of the local acts was your favorite? Who do you think might be on the bigger stage before we know it?

Our photographer Diana Guay was on hand to capture it all and here are shots from Day 2!  (And you can check out our previously posted Day 1 gallery here)

Day 2
Featuring:
Snoop Dogg, The New Pornographers, River City Extension, Portugal The Man, Neon Trees, Man Man, Coheed and Cambria and Against Me!
