Kerpunk posted an interview with The Vandals bassist Joe Escalante in which he discusses the state of the band, his label (Kung-Fu Records), the state of punk rock in general and other standard interviewy type of things. You can check out the whole interview here but here are some interesting excerpts:
On why the Vandals haven't released any new material since 2004's "Hollywood Potato Chip
", Joe explained:
"Our last release was marred by a frivolous lawsuit filed against us by the show business trade publication The Daily Variety. They are really into promoting show business by ruining the releases of punk bands and record labels."
On when we can expect to see new Vandals material, Joe responds:
"Well, they've sued us again, for something we didn't do, so we have to deal with this first."
