This week’s recommendations from Lee Jackson

By Mark Johnson

Here’s another ten tracks from Lee Jackson to guide you through the week.

Drug Church – ‘Weed Pin’

‘Weed Pin’ is the new single from the Albany quintet. Another huge tune to add to their already impressive catalogue. Catch them on tour all over the States this month.

Turnstile – ‘Real Thing’

Put this on and bang your head. ‘Real Thing’ is the first new single since signing to Roadrunner Records. Turnstile are currently on the road throughout the USA now.

Anti Flag – ‘The Criminals’

The Pittsburg punk-rock legends have the fire back in their bellies. Having just finished up on the ‘Fireball Fuelling The Fire Tour’ in the UK, their new album ‘American Fall’ is out now through Spinefarm Records.

The Run Up – ‘WKND’

‘WKND’ is the lead single from Bristol-based The Run Up’s self-titled debut LP,  which is released next week through Real Ghost Records. A fine slice of melodic punk rock.

Old Wounds – ‘Only Your Enemies Leave Roses’

A punishingly heavy new tune from the New Jersey crew, out now through Good Fight. Think Converge meets Poison The Well. They’re back on the road for a handful of shows across the North West of the US before the end of the year.

Phinius Gage – ‘Battered And Bruised’

Having split up back in 2008, after touring an insane amount since their formation in 2002, the Brighton-punks are back together and active again. ‘Battered And Bruised’ is taken from a best-of collection, out now through Disconnect Disconnect Records.

Thrice – ‘Red Telephone’

Thrice are just awesome. Originally a B-side from the 2009 album ‘Beggars’, ‘Red Telephone’ has been given a proper release, which it truly deserves. Currently on tour in the US with Circa Survive.

Random Hand – ‘Anger Management’

Random Hand are back together and active again after a few years away. Fantastic news for UK ska punk. The first announcement is an appearance at Manchester Punk Festival in April.

Waco – ‘Mother Mercy’

Truly one of the jewels in the crown of the underground scene in the UK. ‘Mother Mercy’ is taken from ‘Deathless’ – out now through Venn Records. Catch them at The House Of Vans, London on November 15.

Dinosaur Pile-Up – ‘Red And Purple’

Dinosaur Pile-Up are currently smashing their way through an extensive UK tour. Be quick and make sure to make it to a show! Riffs and melodies galore! ‘Eleven Eleven’ is out now.
