Mike Park (Skankin' Pickle, The Bruce Lee Band, The Chinkees, Asian Man Records) and the great newer ska band Catbite join us for a joint chat! If you're unfamiliar, Mike is a veteran and lifer of DIY, ska, punk, and indie rock, and remains prolific and consistently today, and he refers to Catbite as his favorite new ska band. The episode is in celebration of their new split 12" on Bad Time Records as part of the label's 'Wavebreaker' series, which brings together ska musicians from different generations. We talk about the new split, as well as the current ska scene, some ska history, why ska still gets a bit of a bad reputation (and why it shouldn't), the recent divisive AltPress article on The Interrupters, and much more.   We've also teamed up with them on an exclusive electric blue vinyl variant of the split, limited to just 100 copies and only available in our stores. Pre-order yours now while they last!   Theme music by Michael Silverstein.

All four members of LA ska-punk band The Interrupters join us for a chat as they welcome their new album 'In The Wild,' due 8/5 via Epitaph Records. It's the most personal and genre-defying album the band have written, with Aimee Interrupter opening up about struggles with mental health and abuse, and we discuss the intense therapeutic process that led to these songs being written, as well as the impact of COVID lockdown on the album, the various styles of music explored on it, its many cool guests (Hepcat, The Skints, Tim Armstrong of Rancid, Rhoda Dakar of The Bodysnatchers), and more. We also talk about the recent comeback of ska, the members' favorite ska bands of all time, the time members of The Interrupters backed Tim Armstrong and Jesse Michaels in an impromptu, semi-Operation Ivy reunion, recording vocal harmonies backstage at Citi Field while opening for Green Day, and much more. Subscribe to The BrooklynVegan Podcast wherever you listen to podcasts, and stay tuned for more episodes.

Thursday's Geoff Rickly joins us for an 20th anniversary interview about the band's classic breakthrough album, 'Full Collapse.' Geoff also reflected on the entire history of the band, from their early days up through their initial breakup and then their 2010s reunion. He reflected on the early 2000s emo/post-hardcore boom that 'Full Collapse' helped kickstart, and the way the scene rose and fell and was later revived with a new generation of bands in the 2010s. He talked about other bands he's collaborated with, like My Chemical Romance and Touche Amore, and much more.   Thursday are playing 'Full Collapse' in full on tour this year, and Geoff's band No Devotion also have a new album due in September via Velocity Records.   The interview featured in this podcast episode originally aired on Vans Channel 66. Interview conducted by Andrew Sacher. Music and editing by Michael Silverstein.

Joyce Manor's Barry Johnson joins us on the first-ever episode of the new BrooklynVegan podcast. With their first two albums recently turning 10, Barry discusses the early 2010s emo scene that Joyce Manor got their start in (1:20) and his current relationship to their divisive sophomore album 'Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired' (11:10). He also discusses their new album '40 oz. to Fresno,' and how it was partially inspired by Barry digging through the band's vaults of old ideas and unreleased material during the pandemic (22:10), the parallels between 'Of All Things...' and the new record (25:50), the story behind how one of the new album's songs ("Secret Sisters") was actually a reworked version of another song on the album ("NBTSA") (27:15), working with producer Rob Schnapf and the parallels between Rob's work with Joyce Manor and his work with Saves The Day (30:04), and bringing in Motion City Soundtrack drummer Tony Thaxton for the new album (36:30). He talks about his relationship with ska (48:20) as well, and he tells the story of how Joyce Manor's new album was named after an auto-corrected text about Sublime (56:24). Joyce Manor's new album '40 oz. to Fresno' officially drops June 10 via Epitaph, and you can get it on opaque pink vinyl in our shop. Joyce Manor are also touring this summer with Citizen, Prince Daddy & the Hyena, and PHONY. Dates here.  Subscribe to The BrooklynVegan Podcast wherever you listen to podcasts, and stay tuned for more episodes.
