Every month, the Lockjaw Crew will be sharing our hidden gems from the depths of the Lockjaw distro. Whether you’re discovering a new band or rekindling an old flame, give them a listen and let us know what you think. It’s exciting to see all the new music being released this year, but it’s easy […]
Other than my 2002 Gibson SG Standard that I’ve been using for the last 13 years, it almost always felt impossible for any other guitars to feel right in my hands. For any reason, it seems like I always slip back into my old comfy shoes. For that reason, the few other guitars that I own suffer from severe lack of love (actually exchanging embarrassing eye contact with my Gibson Nighthawk…).
We are thrilled to introduce the latest addition to the Lockjaw Records roster: Canadian melodic thrash whirlwind Wolfrik.
All the way from Edmonton, Alberta, Wolfrik deliver an irresistible concoction of punk, metal and thrash. Complex yet catchy, melodic yet heavy: this band is nothing short of a good time. They’ll tear through your town and leave you begging for more.

For my axe of choice, I’m gonna talk about my ‘Partscaster’ that my friend Pete Darwent at Darwent Guitar Works helped me to build as a summer project, with some assistance and patience from my buddy Ryan Firth too! A shout out to those guys.
We are proud to announce that Misgivings will be joining the Lockjaw Records roster to release their debut album Hermitage.
Portsmouth’s Misgivings are a powerhouse of gruff melodic punk rock that will wrap you in riffs and tug at your heartstrings. Combining the hooks of The Flatliners and the rasp of Leatherface with the gut-wrenching power of Iron Chic, Misgivings bring emotion alive with every intricately constructed song.
The most rewarding thing about this thriving music scene that we’re a part of is meeting people who share our enthusiasm for all things live and loud. So that you can come and grab us for a chat, we thought we ought to tell you where we are! We’ll be bringing you a monthly update […]
Axe of choice would be quite an overstatement; guitar of fiery in-store infatuation and losing a bet is more accurate. Us scandis (meaning Rebuke and our on-again off-again road wives in Forever Unclean) have an ongoing, risky game of “what are the odds” that resulted in me buying this guitar on the day of a show in Hamburg (at the lovely Booze Cruise festival, go there if you haven’t already).
Guildford’s best-kept indie-punk secret, Wild Tales, released their first single Hourglass for your listening pleasure on 14 September 2018. “This song is asking the listener to question reality and telling them to not let the small issues in life cause them stress,” said vocalist and guitarist Adam Rains, “I love this track as it was […]
