So technically this is a little bit more of a “re-introducing” spotlight piece as Belgium’s Chump actually got their start around 2001. They kicked around the scene for a bit until 2005 then disappeared. Until now. Pulling influences from exactly where you’d expect a European punk act from 2001 to pull from, Chump isn’t reinventing the wheel when it comes to melodic skate punk, but they are churning it out with passion and talent, doing the sub-genre serious justice. Give their new EP “Welcome To The Punk Rock Family” below – it’s got one of the best instrumental, intro tracks I’ve heard this year.

This is it! The moment I finally get to share with you guys the reason why I signed Southern California skate-punk act Chaser to Dying Scene Records. I’m an absolute sucker for 90’s era punk rock, and Chaser’s new album “Sound The Sirens” sits firmly between ‘94 NOFX and ‘95 No Use For A Name. If you dig double-time drums, anthemic choruses, and big, sunny SoCal “whoa-ohs” you’re going to seriously love this release.
Stream the entire album below.

From The Toadies’ Rubbernecker Red to Hanson’s MMMhops and… what was that other group again? Strung Out is the latest in the trend of bands and musicians to team up with breweries to try and bring beer-drinking fans a little something special.
Astrolux Golden Ale is expected to be “light, refreshing, crisp, and clean, but pack more punch than your daily drinking beer,” describes Brian Shmitz, the breweries founder, and at 6.1% ABV with Strung Out’s track record for putting out superb tunes, we are all sure hoping it satisfies… Oh, and science is involved in the beer-making as well.
Astrolux is already available in the breweries taproom and select bars and restaurants, with an official release party set for July 21 including a special guest acoustic set by… Can you guess who? It’s Strung Out.

Southern California skate-punk act Chaser have premiered a lyric video for a brand new track off their upcoming release on Dying Scene Records. “The Show” is their homage to the annual tradition of punk rock festival pilgrimage. Doesn’t matter if your festival of choice is PRB, Fest, Punk In Drublic, or Punk Rock Holiday, you’re going to relate to this song. The band had this to say about the inspiration behind the tune:
“The Show” pays tribute to some of our favorite moments growing up. The sun is shining, the music is blasting and we’re shoulder to shoulder with thousands of people singing along. Warped Tour started it all for us, and luckily, the rise of these modern day festivals has filled the void. We’re all grown up now, and expected to take it easy, but you can’t take the punk rock out of the boy. So you’ll still find us crowd surfing, pitting, stage diving, and singing every word. “And we will stay forever this way!”
Sing along to “The Show” over at punknews.
