After 6 years of hard work and dedication, New School Records has made a remarkable presence in the punk music scene with their multi-genre roster of hard working bands scaling across the US and Canada. Not only does their catalog consist of 25 releases to-date, but they have had booths at major festivals such as Warped Tour and have had numerous artist showcase tours nationwide. So, with the continuous success of the label, New School has decided to release an artist sampler to please their current fans and to take on a new group of listening ears.
Punk Off! Volume One is the first installment of their new sampler series, which is a collection of songs by each artist that has been released on the label over the years. Before you label this CD as just another over-rated compilation, take a moment to realize this release is the blood and sweat of New School Records. The release contains an album track by all 14 of the artists on their roster and an additional unreleased bonus track by eight of them, including 7-10 Split, 800 Octane, Nuclear Saturday, Twenty2 and more. Priced at only a few dollars, how could you go wrong by giving it a try?
