NOFX, Lagwagon announced for “Fat Wrecked for 25 Years” celebration in Japan

If you’re like some of the more senior members of the Dying Scene staff, your personal foray into this crazy punk rock world overlaps completely with the existence of Fat Wreck Chords. As a result, 2015 is a pretty special year, as it marks a quarter-century since the first Fat Wreck release hit the streets!

To honor the occasion, the Fat Wreck crew will be embarking on what we think will be a series of pretty cool events. The first of those to be announced is being dubbed “Fat Wrecked For Twenty-Five Years,” and conveniently enough features the two very first bands to release albums on Fat Wreck, NOFX and Lagwagon. The gig takes place in Japan on November 23rd. No further information is available for now…but stay tuned! Meanwhile, check out the “Fat Wrecked for 25 Years” announcement video below.

Video: Punk Rock Holiday 1.4 (what you missed at last year’s Slovenian punk festival)

The festival organizers for Slovenian festival Punk Rock Holiday just released a pretty cool recap video of last year’s event.  Between the green trees, beach, blue river and the bands who play this thing every year I’m going to go out on a limb and say this might be the coolest punk festival of the year.  If I lived anywhere near Slovenia I’d definitely make this an annual trip.

Anyway, the video has great music, little interview snippets and quality footage so if you’ve got 8 or 9 minutes to kill I suggest you do it below.

2015′s festival is already in the works.  It will take place on August 4-7th and has already announced a plethora of bands including Satanic Surfers, Against Me!, Mad Caddies  and more.  Check out their website for more info.

Also, the tour has now doubled in size, to accommodate the overwhelming demand. In addition to the previously announced shows, the bands will play four more dates. Check the full, updated list of shows below, along with a video announcement from Joey and Chris Flippin of Lagwagon.

13 Punk Songs About Heartbreak To Celebrate Anti-Valentines Day

There are few things more known to any wayward punk than heartbreak. Politics, for some of us–but what drove us to our anarchist ways in the first place? Skating culture is as lonely as one can get sans a mid-90s Hook-Ups board. Heartbreak is at the very core of emocore, for crying out loud!

Pun completely intended.

In honor of the worst of commercial holidays I give you 13 of the best punk rock heartbreak tunes. Why 13? Because the 14th was stolen by the cynical commentators of my heart. One for each day of this frozen February leading up to this bittersweet day. Read on, kids.

DS Staff Picks – Best Albums of 2014 (Midwest Punk)

Hi, I’m Ben (in the hat, not the weird-looking bald guy; that’s Brandon from Well Aren’t You Precious), and below you will find my impossible list. As it always is, picking out just 10 albums from this entire year of music is just too damn hard! I’ve experienced so much amazing music over the past year, through my writing with Dying Scene, my contributing at The Fat Wreck Wiki, working on my label, Coastless Records (shameless plug: new release from Well Aren’t You Precious in the new year!), and going to tons of shows. With all that music, I couldn’t pick just 10 and leave it at that…

DS Staff Picks – Best Albums of 2014 (Rob Smittix)

Here you have it, a list of my top ten “punk” albums from 2014. Coming up with this list was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do, this week. Unfortunately I probably haven’t listened to every single punk album in its entirety that was released this year, although I tried. The order of these favorites are in the order in which they were released. 2014 proved to be a resurgence for punk rock music.

Click here for my top 10 picks of the year.

DS Staff Picks – Top 10 Albums of 2014 (vdubowner)

Hey folks, I’m Bruno and I’ve been contributing stories on Dying Scene since last year. Before I joined DS my music repertoire consisted mostly of bands I first heard about 20 years ago. I wasn’t even trying to get to know new bands or stay up to date with the scene. So in my case 2014 was all about catching up and making great discoveries. In fact, I’ve been so impressed by some releases from new and less known bands that I had to give them a spot on my list, I even ended up kicking out some releases by well known veteran acts. Like it or not, here’s my top 10 below.
