Noi!se (street punk) release music video for “Pawn In The Game”

I’m a big fan of street punk.  I run Dying Scene so obviously I’m familiar with the band name Noi!se but even I can’t figure out how the hell I didn’t realize how awesome this band was until literally 10 minutes ago.  The Tacoma based foursome just released a music video for their song “Pawn In The Game” and it is hands down the best “new” punk song I’ve heard in months.  Check it out below.

The tune appears on the band’s most recent full-length, The Scars We Hide, released last September on GMM Records.



Punk Rock Bowling: Night Two – Templars, Beltones, Bishops Green, Booze & Glory (Country Saloon)

Before Rancid finished their headlining set on the main stage at Punk Rock Bowling, I was already on my way to refresh and re-hydrate before running off to catch one of the best club shows of the weekend – Booze & Glory, Bishops Green, The Beltones, and The Templars. While fellow Dying Scenester HopelessRomantic headed to the Bunkhouse for a night of Turner and Grace, I was in for a night of beautiful streetpunk and Oi! with a house full of Canadians. Unfortunately I missed opening band Straight Outta Luck, but from the glistening of the crowd, I imagine it was a great set.

London-based streetpunks Booze & Glory mix classic pub and football themes with a modern touch. The band keeps fans involved with lots of gang vocal sing alongs, Oi!s, and plenty of opportunity to jump around. I have been a fan for awhile and some stand-out tracks were their ‘anthem’ of sorts “London Skinhead Crew” and a more reflective “Only Fools Get Caught”.

Up next is one of my absolute favorite bands right now (and perhaps of all time), Bishops Green. The Vancouver-based quartet pretty much filled the entire venue with eager fellow Canadians, who loyally sing along and view the band as local heroes. Frontman Greg Huff embraced the energy and the band played probably one of the best sets I’ve seen (he ended his set by jumping into awaiting fans who helped him crowd surf to safety). The band just recently released their new album “A Chance To Change” and I was finally able to see “Resistance” performed live.

This was my first Beltones show and I think it was pretty much everything I imagined. Hard, yet whimsical…fast, yet lightweight. Members of the band also perform in Pink Panzer, which they sampled from as well. Great show with a comical edge.

Headliners for the night were New York legends The Templars. I’ve always loved seeing the band perform, however they leave a bit to be desired in terms of stage presence. The fans pay no attention, and march around as usual to the classic, ripping guitar, powerful lyrics, and driving bass.

Have a look at all photos from the bands’ sets below.

Free EP Download: Radical Failure – “When Everything Collapsed”

French punk act Radical Failure claim influences from a variety of Epitaph and Fat bands but the ones that make the most sense to me are Good Riddance and Vision.  The foursome recently put out their new EP “When Everything Collapsed” and if you like your skate and street punk with a dash of hardcore influenced vocals you’re going to want to stream it below.

Album Review: Bishops Green – “A Chance To Change”

Bishops Green is a band that shows us how timeless classic punk really is.  They take the best parts of 77 punk and old school Oi!, throw in some melody, and finish it off with a modern street punk edge.  The bands’ sophomore album A Chance to Change took me by surprise and really grew on me.  It’s impassioned, energetic, and catchy.  And one of the best albums I’ve heard so far this year.

The music seems like typical street punk fare at first, with mid-tempo drums behind driving bass and guitar.  But further listens reveal there is more going on.  Dark undertones and shredding guitar solos permeate the entire album, giving the whole thing a slight post-punk and classic rock sound behind the street punk.  This works surprisingly well with lead singer Greg Huff’s more melodic approach to vocals.  Songs like “Invisible” and “Specter” in particular showcase this dark melodicism and come out sounding like they could have been classic TSOL songs.

Bishops Greens biggest accomplishment on this album is how catchy almost every song is.  After just a few listens I was singing the chorus to “Government Lies” all day: “Take what you want / push our rights aside / make rules for yourself / rules for yourself!”  This is an album full of anthems.  From barn-burners like “Caged,” to the desperate cries in “We Got Nothing,” A Chance to Change will get in your head and have you singing along in no time.

While most of the album is filled with great songs, there are some that seem to fall short of their comrades.  “Dead and Gone” just never really grabbed my attention, and album opener “Lost Generation” starts off a little underwhelming before leading into an otherwise spectacular album.  “Can’t Walk Away,” the last song on the vinyl version, feels like it was building up to an epic climax that never got there.  I think “Soldier,” the bonus track on the digital version, serves as a better closer.

Bishops Green has reminded me why I was so drawn to street punk as an angry youth.  It was passion and fury in a package I could sing along with at the top of my lungs.  The adult me, that’s just a little less angry and has a bigger appreciation for melody, got hooked on the melodic street punk in A Chance to Change.  Now I’m excited to see what the band, and the genre as a whole, does in the future.

4.5/5 Stars

Introducing Street Punk Band: Radical Failure

If you like your skate and street punk with a dash of hardcore influenced vocals I’ve got a fantastic new band for you to check out.  Radical Failure hails from France but after listening to them they could just as believably be from Texas.  They claim influences from a variety of Epitaph and Fat bands but the ones that make the most sense to me are Good Riddance and Vision.  The foursome has a new EP coming out in May and they’ve just released a teaser for it in the form of a music video for a new song titled “Unbreakable”.  Check it out along with their debut EP below.
