Roxx Records goes Punk? That’s right, Roxx Records is proud to announce their first signing of 2011 in the way of the punk outfit, Jump Ship Quick!

Jump Ship Quick is a brand new outfit featuring former members of Focused and Ultimatum! Jump Ship Quick are ready to take the punk world by storm this year unleashing their debut CD upon the world this spring. Fans of bands like NOFX and The Crucified are going to love their approach to the old school vibe reviving that classic punk sound and attitude and mixing in a little modern day twist that is going to leave their fans wanting more! And Jump Ship Quick are sure not afraid to speak their minds and tell it like it is as you will hear in some of their very politically charged lyrics!

Jump Ship Quick consists of Harry (Vox and Rhythm Guitar), Jeff (Lead Guitar), Greg (Bass) and ‘J’ (Drums). Jump Ship Quick actually began about 6 years ago when Jeff and J began putting together a few songs just for fun. They had no singer or bass player at the time and they just wanted to lay down some ideas. As time went on the songs would begin to evolve to what would soon become the signature sound of Jump Ship Quick.

Before Jump Ship Quick, there were numerous bands for all of the members most notably Jeff, who was one of the original members of Focused and one of his songs he wrote the music for, “Walk Beside Me” would even make it on to the band’s historical debut album “Bow”. ‘J’ and Greg both have origins in the New Mexico thrash outfit Ultimatum, Greg appeared on Ultimatum’s debut entitled Fatal Delay. During college Jeff and ‘J’ came together to form a Ska core band and have been playing together ever since. Harry has been in several rock and punk bands that have been featured on various compilations and full length CD’s receiving recognition and praise by critics throughout the Vancouver area.

Jump Ship Quick’s debut CD will also receive some help from famed Five Iron Frenzy saxophonist ‘Jeff ‘ the girl! (aka Leanor Inez Ortega Till) who will be handling the production of this new release!

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
