Our First 100 Days is a compilation designed to protest and raise money for groups and charities that may struggle under President Trump's time as President.

"All profits raised from Our First 100 Days will go directly to organizations working on the front lines of climate, women's rights, immigration and fairness."

You can find more information about the compilation here.

Check out "Spell" below!

August Burns Red's vocalist Jake Luhrs is featured on a new The Voynich Code track

"Delusion" is on The Voynich Code's new album, Aqua Vitae, coming out on May 5 through Primordial Records.

Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach has started a punk hardcore side project

Leach announced the project, inspired by bands like Black Flag and Minor Threat, through Instagram along with writing "I'll drop details or a sample track as soon as I have them"

 

It's been a long time coming man! Woke up with a fire in my heart! These 4 albums serve as inspiration for a jam session today with 3 killer humans! Don't tell anyone ��but I've put together a punk hardcore band/project for fun and today is our first jam session here in NY! To say I'm excited is a vast understatement! Now I just need to hack my car out of a couple of feet of ice! Stay tuned, you know I gotta big mouth on here and I'll drop details or a sample track as soon as I have them. This is a side project and it is being done for the pure enjoyment of playing. It is also a necessary outlet for a singing/yelling style and lyrics I can't fit into any other band or project I've ever done. My 15 year old self is quite proud of me! GO!!!!!!! ✊��☠️ . #HardcorePride #UpThePunx #ProtestMusic #Friends #Passion #PMA #Hardcore #Punk #Bands #MinorThreat #7Seconds #BlackFlag #discharge #JesseLeach #FedUp #SpeakOut #Anarchy #Stoked #FightBack #TheWeapon
