As shameful as it is some of you readers don’t actually check Dying Scene every hour of every day. For you slackers we’ve put together a list of last week’s biggest stories to help you stay in the loop and maintain your punk cred. You’re welcome.
1. Henry Rollins announced his retirement from music with some very eloquent words. Maybe some of you older dudes should take a cue. Wink.
2. Here are some fun facts about Social Distortion’s Mike Ness. Another fun fact: I used to live down the street from him.
3. OH! And here’s some more stuff about Dexter Holland. I don’t think I ever lived near him though.
4. Former Coheed & Cambria bassist, Mic Todd, is a dirtbag and apologized for scamming his fans.
5. We unearthed a video of the dudes from Lagwagon talking about how much they love The Descendents.
6. Defeater are streaming a new song off of their upcoming album, Letters Home.
7. Did you know that Mest is still a band? Neither did I! But here’s some new music they put out this week.
8. Former Thursday frontman, Geoff Rickly, was robbed at gunpoint in NYC this week. Some people are just the worst.
9. Are you down with some Canadian punk? Well, I have got just the compilation for you.
10. SNFU put out their first song in nine years. Party time!
