Where We Exist, the follow up full-length from NJ Ska Punk band Survay Says, will be released by TTLR on July 20th. The album, recorded at the Highland House, is the band’s most personal to date focusing on themes of loss and isolation. However, Survay Says, still stays true to their two-tone roots and their tongue-in-cheek lyrics and humor.
To promote the release of Where We Exist, Survay Says will be doing a series of shows this weekend. On Friday, Survay Says will be playing the Clinton Community Center in Clinton, NJ, if you buy a ticket for the show you get a copy of Where We Exist! On Saturday, Survay Says will be playing the Crocodile Rock in Allentown, PA. The band will finish their series of release shows with a stint at Warp Tour at the Comcast Theater in CT. Until then check out “The Netflix Song” from “Where We Exist.”

Formed in Tel Aviv, Israel, it was almost natural for the members of Kids Insane to find punk rock. Kids that live in Israel are forced to join the military and serve a mandatory 3 years. Pacifists are thrown in jail if they refuse recruitment. Other kids seek a way out of service through the mental health officer. The band found an outlet in the culture and music of punk. Drawing on the events that surround them in the news, other art forms, and their personal lives, Kids Insane have stripped down hard core and have begun rebuilding one angry brick at a time.
The band’s upcoming debut release, All Over, due out in August, is a punk rock manifesto that questions everything and denies nothing. From start to finish, All Over brings Kids Insane’s message that there is never one truth through the fury and aggressiveness that is in each song.
Winslow continues to carry the banner of the Quebec Punk scene with their second full-length “Get Nice,” releasing today (6/6) through Third Time Lucky Rekords. Engineered byDan Bosse, Rene Garcia (The Brains) and Stu McKillop (Daggermouth, Rain City recorders), “Get Nice” has been a jump for the band in terms of production and song writing. The sophmoric release, features songs like “El Suave,” that have been written and performed over the last year but have remained unreleased, as well as more recently written songs like the well-crafted aggressive pop punk anthem “The Cat’s Meow.”
The release of “Get Nice” kicks of Winslow’s Canadian Tour to promote the new album.
If you lived in the northeast last year there is no way you can forget the horrible snow storm we were all slammed with in October. For days you were cold and pissed. “Dear JCP&L I’m tired of This Nonsense,” the new single released from NJ ska/punkers Survay Says!, encapsulates the anxiety and isolation we all felt on those dark days with humor and a two-tone groove.
“Dear JCP&L,” previews the shift Survay makes with this newest album, to be released through Third Time Lucky Rekords on July 20th. The songs on the album tend to focus more on the lives and struggles of the band more so than previous albums, making this album the band’s most personal to date.
