I’m not even sure how I’m typing this sentence considering my face has just been melted off by the insane riffage of New Dead Project‘s brand new EP “Run To The Hills”. I know practically nothing about this Budapest punk act except they play incredibly fast, metal infused punk rock and the lead singer sounds like Zoli of Ignite. There’s no info on their facebook. Not a lineup or a band description. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out this was a secret Zoli side project, and almost hope it is after that last disastrous Ignite album. But I digress… Whoever makes up New Dead Project, they completely shred and I highly recommend you stream their new EP below. If you dig it, download it for free on bandcamp.

The brand new punk band Deposit Man from Oulu, Finland has released their debut EP and if you dig the gritty, no frills sound of classic punk rock you’ll probably want to check it out. The record is imaginatively named ‘ep’ and it contains five melodic punk songs that discuss everything from politics to everyday life issues of a punk rock Daddy. Stream it below.

UK sad punks Kamikaze Girls have joined forces with the burgeoning label from Belgium: Bearded Punk Records. In addition, they’ve been slated to play Fest in the first round of their announcements (which you can check here). No word yet from either band or label on a future release, but we’ll keep you updated.
The two-piece has a similar sound to White Lung (if they were just a bit calmer and more British). You can check out their sound for yourself on their track “Tonic Youth” below.

Throwing Darts are a new 5-piece punk band from Orange County, California, who just released a new album titled Stone Age through Basement Records. Their music draws heavy influence from iconic bands like Agent Orange, D.I., and The Adolescents. Odds are, if you’re into those bands, Throwing Darts’ new record will be right up your alley. Give it a listen below, and if you like what you hear, head over to Bandcamp and grab a copy.

Why these dudes can’t just stay in the same band is beyond me but as long as they keep pumping out tunes like this I don’t really care what they call themselves. Oakland punk act Daydream is the latest band to be formed by former members of Hear The Sirens and The Restless Hearts. Same singer, same song writing structure, same heartfelt lyrics and same speedy pop-punk delivery. In this case no change is a very good thing. Their debut EP “Promise You” is the band’s open letter to the past few years, detailing self realization, change and loss. Stream it below and if you dig it download it for free on bandcamp. ———————-

UK newcomers, Captain Trips, have released their debut EP to stream for free via the band’s bandcamp page. The record is four tracks of rapid-riff laden skate punk, as appears to be the tradition from the British Isles these days.

Here’s a new band for you fans of melodic skate punk to check out. Brazil’s Backdrop Falls have just released their debut, two-song self-titled EP and I’d say it’s sound falls somewhere between Useless ID and Pennywise. But don’t take my word for it, give both tracks a listen below and judge for yourself.
The band is already working on a new single to be released soon and on a longer EP to be released later this year.

Remember Coercion 96? The punk supergroup comprised of members of Good Riddance, Fury 66 and The Lonely Kings? No? Well that’s because they disbanded 20 years ago so don’t beat yourself up. Luckily for us the foursome has reformed and recently hit the studio with legendary producer/engineer Michael Rosen (Rancid, AFI, Testament, Vio-lence) to record a 4-song E.P. tentatively titled “Exit Wounds” (label TBD). Influenced by the metal likings of Black Sabbath, Metallica and Killing Joke as well as punk rock icons TSOL, Agent Orange and Bad Religion, Coercion 96 hopes to release the E.P. in the near future. For the time being check out one of the new songs, “Crime Scene” below.

This week on Dying Scene Radio, Bobby Pickles ventures to Fort Pierce, Florida to interview SoCal rockers Unwritten Law about their brand new record, Acoustic (which drops April 1st via El Hefe’s Cyber Tracks), prior to their stop at The Inlet – a kickass venue right on the beach! It’s also a pleasant surprise to find homegrown Floridumb talent in local openers, Church Girls – whose grimey orgy anthems and interesting stage presence, leave this serious-minded music journalist thirsting for another dash of whiskey-spit. Paul Lavesque (last name unpronounceable), bassist/vocalist for Arizona skate punks LightSpeedGo, joins Chris Fox (Vampirates/Voted Best Band) and I (Mr. Pickles) “in-studio” (this past Easter Sunday) to spin the latest punk, exchange war stories, and swear.

The punk rock group Noi!se has got to be the Northwest punk scene’s best kept secret. I have yet to hear a bad song put out by these guys and that includes an entire full-length called The Scars We Hide which hasn’t quite been properly released yet but should be soon.
Whilst we’re waiting for that we’ve got the next best thing, an acoustic side project from Noi!se vocalist Matt Henson and Noi!se drummer Kenny Dirkes. It’s called Stadium Way and it appears they’re just about to release their debut album through Pirates Press (US) and Randale (Europe). No release date yet but the fellas are streaming three tracks from the release to give us a taste of what’s to come.
Check out “Misplaced Rage” (featuring organs from Interrupters’ Kevin Bivona), “Lessons Learned” and “Ever Afraid” below.

If you were as upset I was over the demise of Dying Scene Records band Chimp Change then here’s something that might excite you. Alberta’s Trashed Ambulance is a new band featuring one of the co-vocalists and the old drummer from Chimp Change and on March 25th they’ll be releasing their debut full-length “Blurry Thoughts”. If you dug Chimp Change, or just skate-punk in general, you’re going to dig Trashed Ambulance but don’t take my word for it, stream 4 of the songs off the upcoming album below.

When I first saw an email in my inbox about a band called No Nipples releasing a new album, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. But a few seconds after clicking play, I knew this 4-piece punk band from Spain was something special. Though I’m only a few tracks in, their new album No Babies Allowed is without a doubt the best thing I’ve heard this year. If you like your punk rock melodic, fast, and with a little español thrown in every few tracks, I highly recommend giving the album a listen below. It’s also free to download on Bandcamp, but if you like what you hear, please support the band by kicking a few bucks their way!

Iowa pop-punk quartet The Starry Nights (members of Lipstick Homicide, The Blendours) have a new self-titled EP out, and they’re letting you download it for free/name your price. Listen and/or download below.
If you’re looking for a physical copy of the EP, head over here to the band’s Bandcamp page to grab a copy on CD. While there, you can also download their first release, Full Moon Spells, an acoustic album from founding members of The Starry Nights, Trevor Treiber and Kate Kane. It’s also free/name your price, but I’ll kindly suggest you share the “wealth” and toss them a few dollars if you can.

I typically don’t like to do band spotlights on bands that I can only hear one song from but in the case of Perth’s Two For Flinching I’m willing to make an exception. The band is getting ready to release their debut EP “So We’ve Got That In Common” and are offering up a free download of the album’s first single “Super”. It’s got some great intro riffage, a fantastically catchy chorus and just the right amount of gang chants and shouts. All in all, enough for me to put this album on my “wishlist” and to share them with you readers. I highly recommend you give the track a listen below.
