Mission punks Dead to Me have a new album out on local label Fat Wreck. Today marks the release of African Elephants, the six-year-old band's first record without original guitarist Jack. The single-named ax slinger left the fold to start a family, and Dead to Me is now a trio, comprising the other other first-name-basis dudes Chicken (bass/vocals), Ian (drums) and Nathan (guitar).

Check out a very Clash-inspired, upbeat single off African Elephants, "A Day Without a War." The song uses a pop punk chorus, gruff vocals, and a warning that we'll "never be safe again" so long as the U.S. is engaged in conflicts, calling on the punk community to use its voice to demand an end to war.

Dead to Me's CD release is this Friday, Nov. 13 at Thee Parkside with Hüsker Dü's Grant Hart.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
