Literally my favorite thing about running Dying Scene is the discovery of new bands. Every morning I throw the headphones on and start dutifully working my way through the review requests, profile requests and simple pleas from bands to check out their music. I won’t lie, the vast majority of it falls somewhere between the terrible and the mediocre but at least a couple times a week I stumble on to unexpected little gems like Wisconsin’s Not Dead Yet. The 4 piece recently released their self-titled debut and halfway through “Johnny Cashed Out” I was hooked. At times the band reminds me of early Against Me! (“Die Someday”) but these guys are definitely faster and a little more straight forward punk rock. Don’t take my word for it though, listen the the entire release below and judge for yourself.
