If you get a minute—and of course, after you’re done reading all of your favorite content here on RiotFest.org—head on over to Noisey to check out Laura Jane Grace rank Against Me! records, please.
With a new seasons of Stranger Things comes all sorts of intrigue and awesome old-school movie references, as well as haunting new jams from Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon, known to their management as S U R V I V E.

We interviewed Sciatic Nerve and premiered their latest video last week, and now you can hear the band’s new album in its entirety over at New Noise. The self-titled album comes out tomorrow, and you can buy it from Anxious and Angry Records. Thanks to Ryan and Anxious and Angry, we are now slightly less of both.
No parody jams!

It’s The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour!

Green Day has a new best-of-type album coming out next month, named after a funny skit they did on Colbert, which rules.
