If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if Drake’s “Hotline Bling” was mashed up with Blink 182′s “Adam’s Song”, well here’s your answer. The song takes the beat from the Drake song, and lays it over the baseline and lyrics of Blink. I’ve gotta be honest, I was a little underwhelmed. Seeing as how gifs of the Drake music video have recently flooded the internet, I was hoping that the music video would have done something crazy; like “Drake playing pickup basketball with a coked out Travis Barker” crazy. Still, as it stands, it’s a neat experiment and is worth checking out below.

To coincide with the 20th anniversary of its release, long-defunct California punk legends Jawbreaker will release a vinyl reissue of their iconic final album Dear You on December 18th, which will be pressed on blue vinyl. You can pre-order a copy of the reissue here.
Jawbreaker broke up in 1996, shortly after the release of Dear You. While no official reunion has been announced, the members of Jawbreaker got together last spring working on a documentary called Don’t Back Down.

Just imagine, it’s 1996, you’re in Miami in the summer and you’re sweating, and I mean sweating, and the below knee level denim shorts you’re wearing are soaked. You’re at Warped Tour, which at this point hasn’t really hit the peak of it’s being yet, and Bink-182 is playing in the distance. You grab a seat on the lawn, and check out their set between sets from Limp Bizkit and Guttermouth.

In a recent interview, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker revealed that the band has recorded five songs with Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio, who replaced the band’s original singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge earlier this year. Travis states:
“Matt’s killing it. He’s fun to play with and write with. We’re just getting started but I think we’ve got like four or five songs right now that I’m really, really happy with. There’s a song called ‘Punk Rock Cliché’ which I love the most right now. It’s about friends of ours and their relationships.”

Well this one’s a throwback. Some new footage has just emerged, from the bowels of who-knows-where, showing Blink-182 preforming at Warped Tour, 1996. The trio deliver a set that includes the likes of “M&M’s”, “Peggy Sue”, and “Carousel”. Probably the most interesting thing about the video is just how bare bones the stage arena is, with a blank stage and a relatively tame, medium-sized audience. As a child of the late 90’s, I can barely remember a time before Blink-182 changed the face of pop-punk, so this is definitely a surreal watch. Check it out below.

Frank Turner‘s reputations as both a seemingly tireless live performer and an open and honest songwriter (and interview subject) have been thoroughly vetted on these and other pages for years. As the thirteen pages of “Frank Turner” search results on Dying Scene alone will attest to, the English folk-punk troubadour (assuming that such descriptors are still necessary at this point) has been one of the most talked to, and talked about, members of the scene. (As an editorial side note, we should probably change that bio page on this set, lest people thing Poetry Of The Deed is still his forthcoming album…)
That the songs have become a tad glossier and a little (or at times a lot) more generally accessible to a broader audience is part of the natural order of things, but it hasn’t stopped Turner from staying true to his roots as an emotional storyteller. While much of the material on his latest release, Positive Songs For Negative People (Interscope Records/Xtra Mile Recordings) stays true to the theme spelled out in the album’s title, the closing track, “Song For Josh,” is as gut-wrenching as anything you’ll find in most artists catalogs. The ode to Josh Burdette, longtime employee and public face of Washington, D.C.’s legendary 9:30 Club, was written just after Burdette’s untimely passing two years ago and recorded live at the 9:30.
The Dying Scene Radio fellas caught up with Frank on the eve of his current US tour that’ll find him on the road for the next six-weeks, traversing the States with Skinny Lister and Beans On Toast. You can check out that podcast entry here. Here at the print side of things at Dying Scene HQ, we chatted with Turner about the more emotional moments on Positive Songs For Negative People, about keeping up with a relentless tour schedule and all it entails, and about what happens if he achieves the long-term happiness he seems to pine for in his songs and inevitably turns into Jack Johnson.

Although it was revealed earlier this year that a new album was in the works, AFI bassist Hunter Burgan revealed that the band has been on hiatus (again), due to members focusing on other projects, but promises they will return soon. He explains:
“”When’s AFI coming to ______?” “When’s the next AFI record?” “You guys need to stop doing other things and do some AFI!” — Patience, my friends. AFI is an important part of our lives, but we’re all just human beings. We’ve got things to do and people to see. Sometime you have to stop and smell the roses to remember that you live in a neighborhood with a rosebush on the corner. We’ll be back soon, I promise.”
AFI have gone on hiatus before, most notably back in 2011 when fans believed that they were actually breaking up, which proved untrue. The band ended their hiatus in 2013, and released Burials, their first album in four years, that October.

AFI frontman Davey Havok is lucky enough to have a mom who loves him. Unlike the rest of us, who might have to endure their moms telling their friends embarrassing stories about that time they threw up all over the rest of their family on a camping trip (oh wait, was that just me?!), Davey Havok has to endure the stories told in a public forum.
Havok’s mom, Penny Marchand, recently talked to The AVA, an online news site based in Mendocino, all about raising a punk rocker. You can read the full piece here.
AFI last released Burials, their first album in four years, on October 22, 2013 through Republic Records. Rumor has it that a new album is in the works, and we’ll keep you posted on that as details emerge.

Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus has apparently confirmed that Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio is an official member of the band, replacing their original guitarist/singer Tom DeLonge, who left the band last January.

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.
Today’s cover comes from 90’s punk staples Jawbreaker, tackling “You Don’t Know What You’ve Got” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. The original version of the song appeared on Jett’s debut solo album, Bad Reputation in 1981 (initially released as Joan Jett in 1980), while Jawbreaker’s cover first appeared on the Chesterfield King EP, before being reissued on CD versions of Bivouac (both in 1992).
You can listen to both versions below.

In a recent interview with the Das Process podcast, Blink bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus confirmed that the remaining two-thirds of the band were going through a “friendly divorce with (their) former guitarist.” Hoppus added: “hopefully things clear up and it doesn’t get all manager-y and lawyer-y and all that and we can move forward.” You can check out the rest of the interview here.
It would appear that this would pave the way for DeLonge’s recent replacement, Alkaline Trio‘s Matt Skiba (pictured above with Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker) to take a more official role in what would, in many ways, become a sort of supergroup. Stay tuned.
