Strung Out parts ways with long time drummer Jordan Burns

Sad news from the Strung Out camp. Looks like the genre defining Southern California punk act are splitting with their long running drummer Jordan Burns. Not much detail on why exactly the split occurred but from the language of the official statement below it would appear that it wasn’t exactly amicable. We’ll let you draw your own conclusions.

Here’s the statement:

“To all our friends,

Next year will mark our 30 year anniversary as a band. That is quite an extraordinary feat for any relationship ESPECIALLY a band. We have always taken pride in this fact. Keeping it together for so long and making music that we can all be proud of. To us that is truly inspiring. Like any marriage, treating each other with HONESTY and RESPECT is THE MOST important factor. Passion, sacrifice and honor for each other and all we create are essential to keeping the unit whole. When those bonds are broken it can never be the same. Sometimes in order to survive and grow changes must be made.

Strung Out would like to take this opportunity to officially announce that we will be parting ways with our drummer of 20 + years Mr Jordan Burns. We greet this new chapter with a deep sense of gratitude and relief. We could not be more thankful for everything we have accomplished together and for our renewed sense of creativity and enthusiasm. We are brothers again plain and simple. It is extremely important to us that all of our devoted fans know how much the four of us love and honor this band so we expect you to trust that this is in the best interest of Strung Out. We wish Jordan all the best and we promise all of you that we will continue to raise the bar and ALWAYS do it for the love because we still believe! Stay tuned brothers and sisters for the best has yet to come.”

So yeah… But fear not Strung Out fans. We have it on good authority that the band has already enlisted a new drummer (RJ Shankle of Runaway Kids) and as you likely know, the band heads out on tour with Pennywise next month. As if that wasn’t enough excitement, in May they’ll be releasing their acoustic album Black Out The Sky for which fans can expect the first single/video next month as well. As always, we’ll keep you posted…

DS Photo Gallery: Strung Out, Street Dogs, The Adolescents and The Alarm represent the old school at Warped Tour (Hartford, CT)

Much has been made of the backseat that traditional punk rock took for quite a while at the annual Vans Warped Tour. Over the last handful of years, however, those old-school punk rock vibes have been slowly returning, albeit on a bit of a smaller scale. While bands like Attila and I Prevail and Beartooth seem to represent the lion’s share of the sounds emanating from most of the 2017 edition of the Warped Tour’s seven stages, there is a distinct presence of bands from what I guess we’d call an older school of more straight-forward street punk and hardcore and rock and roll bands. Hatebreed, Sick Of It All, Valient Thorr, Municipal Waste, Anti-Flag and GWAR have all been drawing fairly sizable crowds night-in and night out in recent days. Dying Scene took in the Hartford stop on the Vans Warped Tour last weekend, and caught a couple of our favorite throwback heavyweights.

Boston working-class heroes Street Dogs played a late-afternoon set on the Skullcandy stage, set on one of the outdoor parking lot areas at Hartford’s Xfinity Theater. If you’re a veteran of Warped Tours in the late 90s – early 00s, you’re no doubt familiar the concept at the outdoor stages; bands alternate playing on what are basically oversized trailers placed side by side, resulting in a constant barrage of roughly twenty-five minute sets. That means you’re not going to hear an awful lot deep cuts, although Street Dogs, themselves veterans of three prior Warped Tours, do an admirable job of keeping things interesting. The set on this particular day kicked off with personal favorite of mine “In Defense Of Dorchester” and threw fan favorites like “Back To The World,” “Punk Rock And Roll,” and “Not Without A Purpose” into the mix. Frontman Mike McColgan spent at least half the set on the barricade, interacting personally with a lot of the band’s notoriously die-hard, blue collar fans. The “new lineup” consisting of longtime bassist Johnny Rioux and more recent adds Lenny Lashley and Matt Pruitt on guitar and Pete Sosa on drums) have actually been plugging away for four years now, and have finally got some new music due out before long. That’s a good thing, as the band’s trademark rallying cries are much needed in times like these.

LA punk veterans Strung Out played an early afternoon set on one of the two side-by-side stages inside the venue’s amphitheater. I will say that when the Warped Tour venues started to change a bunch of years ago and started to center, at least in this part of the country, around amphitheater settings, I and others were more than a little skeptical. But I’ll tell you what – it’s actually pretty cool having the stage split in half and allowing large crowds to stay out of the heat and/or other imposing weather elements. Like with Street Dogs, it’s tough for a band like Strung Out to adequately represent their catalog in a twenty-five minute set, but songs like “Too Close To See” from 1998’s seminal album Twisted By Design and “The Animal and the Machine” from their latest album, 2015’s Transmission.Alpha.Delta do a pretty adequate job. Frontman Jason Cruz remains one of the defining voices in the genre, and guitarists Jake Kiley and Rob Ramos continue to shred blistering, metal-infused riffs over lock-tight rhythm section Jordan Burns (drums) and Chris Aiken (bass), and no member off the quintet stays in one place for very long, making for a tightly packed, high energy set.

Representing the even older school on one of the amphitheater stages for back-to-back sets were The Alarm and the legendary Adolescents. The former, if you’re not familiar, are a seminal early-80s new wave band from Wales who have been plugging away in some form of another ever since. The brainchild of Mike Peters (also co-founder of the Love Hope Strength Foundation, which you should be familiar with), The Alarm played to a modest crowd that consisted, as you might imagine, of older fans who were very well aware of the band’s legacy, singing along with every word to tracks like “Sixty Eight Guns.” The Adolescents, who themselves are veterans of their fair share of Warped Tours since reforming fifteen-or-so years ago, played one of those sets that the other bands took notice of. Unarguably one of the coolest parts of Warped Tour is watching the camaraderie amongst the bands on the bill, and members of Street Dogs, Strung Out and Bad Cop/Bad Cop were among those present around the stage as living legends Tony Reflex and Steve Soto and the gang (Dan Root and Ian Taylor on guitar, Dave Cambra on drums) went to work. Again a case where members have changed but the core have remained just as steady as ever. Let’s face it: Tony Reflex/Cadena/Adolescent and Steve Soto are legends for a reason (and not only because their self-titled debut has been a desert island album since before most of our readers were born!).

Lineup announced for 2017 Vans Warped Tour Presented By Journeys (Anti-Flag, Sick Of It All, Bad Cop/Bad Cop and more)

As you can tell from the minuscule print in the picture posted to the left of these very words, the lineup has been announced for the 2017 installment of the annual Vans Warped Tour Presented By Journeys. While perhaps not entirely as enjoyable to Dying Scene readers as last year’s edition of the Vans Warped Tour Presented By Journeys was, there are still a handful of kick-ass bands playing.

The lineup, which you may have seen a leaked version of floating around in recent days, includes Anti-Flag, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, The Adolescents, Big D and the Kids Table, CKY, GWAR, Goldfinger, Hatebreed, Sick Of It All, TSOL, Strung Out, Suicide Machines, Street Dogs, and a bunch more. They aren’t all playing each day, obviously, so head here for info on your local stop!



Exclusive: Jason Cruz spills surprising details on new Strung Out EP “Black Out The Sky”

Last week word quickly spread through the interwebs that California punk legends Strung Out had begun working on a new album titled “Black Out The Sky”. Beyond that, details were largely nonexistent, but luckily for you DS readers we were able to get the full scoop directly from singer Jason Cruz himself.

What we learned is as exciting as it is unexpected. Basically, this isn’t going to be your standard Strung Out release. For one, it’s going to be acoustic. Yeah. Second, its apparently going to be some of the band’s “darkest” work to date. Intriguing! Here’s exactly what Cruz told us:

“Strung out is currently working on a 5-7 song EP entitled “Black Out The Sky” set to release early summer 2017 on Fat Wreck Chords. BOTS will be a collection of acoustic songs written with a loose theme to match the title. To simply call it an ‘acoustic album’ would not be doing it justice and it very well may be our darkest release yet.

Never writing same record twice – yet at the same time staying true to our fans has always been our priority as a band. We do not plan on abandoning our signature sound but with the way things are now, this record may be the perfect remedy in a world where everything is turned up to eleven. We are confident fans of Strung Out will not be disappointed.”

We’ll keep you posted as progress is made on the album and with any luck we’ll convince the band to let us premiere a song early for you guys. Stay tuned!

Strung Out’s last album Transmission.Alpha.Delta was released in early 2015 on Fat Wreck Chords.

There is no word on a possible release date at this time, but we’ll keep you posted as more details on the new Strung Out record come to light.
