Note the UK tourdates in late November as well.

The excellent Swedish pop-punk act Smalltown reports that their new album "Implosion" is mixed and mastered. The band describes it by saying "it is very different from the last one, while still sounding very much like Smalltown. If that makes sense. We've tried some new stuff, with a lot of different instruments and other things." All that's left is the layout and then it's up to labels Combat Rock and Deranged to see it released.

Monument Records will be putting out a 7-track 7" from Swedish upstartsFirst Cut, a no-frills hardcore band that features members from bands such as Achilles Last Stand, Smalltown, Hearts Alive and The Arson Project. Hear samples at myspace:
