Punk/hardcore luminaries OFF! have announced the impending release of their new full length Wasted Years on April 7th from Vice Records. In an attempt to capture the sonic embodiment of the album’s thematic darkness, the album was self-recorded live to 8-track ½” tape in the quartet’s practice space, with a minimum of overdubs and an inability to punch in (i.e. every performance is an unedited take).


After an explosive 2013, punk MC iTCH announces the anticipated release of his debut album The Deep End on March 24th via Red Bull Records. iTCH has also announced a UK tour with Dan Le Sac VS Scroobius Pip.
