None or Unknown
Hey punk fans, here's my latest kick-ass discovery : The Surrogates. Based in Syracuse NY, the Pop-punk quartet have been around since 2010 and they have just released their latest EP entitled "Easier Without You". I can honestly say, it fucking shreds! Heavy guitars riffs, catchy hooks and one of my favorite features: 2 different singers! There's something about them that reminds me of vintage Face To Face... Anyway, I'll let you judge on that. Stop reading this and stream the EP here.

Get ready, Boston thrash/hardcore fans. The cover art and some more specific release information has been announced for the upcoming Tenebrae / PanzerBastard split!
Entitled “The Sons Of Belial,” the split is currently at the pressing plant in anticipation of a July 8th release. No pre-orders available yet, but stay tuned; the first hundred will be on “blood-splattered vinyl.” Knowing Tenebrae and PanzerBastard (the former features Mark from The Unseen and Rob and Craig from Blood For Blood, while the latter features Keith Benentt and Dom DiBenedetto whom you should all be familiar with), that means it’ll be splattered in actual blood. Sweet.
“The Sons Of Belial” will be released by Jailhouse Records.

The Tony Sly tribute website (tonysly.org) has been compiling little stories about Tony, written by contributors to the “The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute” album.
When my band was just getting our feet wet as part of the FAT Wreck Chords family, Tony took us under his wing and had us play several shows around California with his band. Later that year, when our first album was released, Tony invited us to tour Europe supporting his band. We had never been overseas and we were really stoked to get the chance. Our first album was a collection of songs cobbled together by various riffs brought in by various members over a period of 3-4 years, with me writing lyrics and melodies over them. As we were writing our first album, I began picking up my guitar (which I could barely play) and tried to write more complete songs. I didn’t consider this “songwriting” per se, it was more for expediency’s sake. While in Europe, Tony and I had several conversations about music and songwriting. He gave me tons of insight and advice, although I don’t know if he realized at the time how helpful he was. He asked me about our songs, which he knew surprisingly well, and who had written them. It turned out that he particularly liked some of the songs I had written start to finish, as opposed to the collection of separate riffs strapped together. He told me something I will never forget: he told me that I was the songwriter of the band, and that I needed to take the reins and assume that responsibility. He told me to start thinking of the process in terms of writing complete songs, rather then just bringing a riff or two to practice. It was completely new information for me, but it helped shape the way I have approached songwriting ever since. He believed in me as a songwriter, and he believed in our band at a time when we were still unsure if we’d be able to make a real go of it.
I will always remember his calm demeanor and his understated humor. He always had a way of making the endless monotony of tour seem fun and adventurous. He found the wonder in everyday things and helped everyone around him enjoy them that much more.
The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute, featuring covers of songs by No Use for a Name and Mr. Sly from NOFX, Bad Religion, Strung Out, Rise Against, Pennywise, The Gaslight Anthem and many others, was released on October 29th through Fat Wreck Chords.Add Good Riddance to My Radar
Back in February we reported on a little recording session for San Francisco punks Bum City Saints, where Dying Scene joined the band at Shark Bite Studios in Oakland to observe them (and contribute to) laying down vocals for their upcoming album, “Ride The Storm”.
