The internet, including Wikipedia (which we are STILL banned from), will tell you that supergroups never work out. However, that fact falters in the face of Versus The World. Featuring members of the Ataris and Lagwagon, the California act churns out melodic anthems and serves as a reminder that heavy songs can still sound fun. The band exemplifies this in their third studio effort Homesick/Roadsick, a sucker-punch of an album that gets catchier with every listen. We were able to catch up with frontman Donald Spence before he embarks on an extensive European tour with the rest of our crew.
You can read the full interview below.

A handful of big-time acts have been added to the lineups at the three Riot Fest locations for later this summer…because you needed MORE of a reason to go.
Now appearing at the Denver Riot Fest (Aug 28-30) will be System Of A Down, The Prodigy (who are still a band because 1990s big beat music will somehow never die…) and Death Grips. Added to the lineup at the Chicago installment of Riot Fest (September 11-13) will be System Of A Down and The Prodigy, and now appearing in Toronto (September 19-20) will be Cancer Bats, The Prodigy, Bleachers, and Weezer, who’ll be performing “The Blue Album” and “Pinkerton” in their entirety.

Today, the Santa Barbra punk band Versus the World (featuring members of the Ataris and Lagwagon) released their incredible third full-length studio album, Homesick/Roadsick, and they are now streaming it online. Listen to all 11 anthemic tracks below.
Homesick/Roadsick was released today, June 23rd, through their original home Kung Fu Records, and it can be purchased here. It serves as the follow-up to 2012′s amazing Drink. Sing. Live. Love through through Viking Funeral Records.
Dog Party are a teenage female duo that really seem set to take the punk world by storm, expanding further from the niche spots they’ve already charmed their way into. They’ve got quite a radio-friendly, bouncy and catchy style that somehow manages to fit the pre-established notions set by punk rock elitists. Vol. 4 nods to surfer, breezy punk as you’d expect but this time around the band is filled with much more intent and a serious approach to storytelling that bodes well for anyone looking to mature musically in the punk world.
“Forget” and “Creepin’” are two examples of them being more driven as opposed to the poppier tones of punk- thus allowing Dog Party to pay attention to their older stuff and servicing their cult following. For their age, they’ve really got it mapped out. Their music isn’t formulaic and each track stands on its own. Maybe the record is one or two tracks too long but still, Vol. 4 is another decent addition to their catalog. Cheesy at times but very much adult at others.
“Dead Guy” is a stark reminder as to this. It’s very oddly structured in terms of lyrics and it’s not a bad thing as I like how the band’s gotten into the slightly more disturbing experiences of life, especially given I’ve seen a lot of inappropriate comments thrown at them at other punk sites (really sullying the movement). They seem to take these criticisms in stride, harness and channel them into an album that feels grittier, angrier and one they vent on even more. They sound pissed and it’s definitely something that I can see them using to hash out even better music in the future. Let’s just respect them and nurture them along the way. We’re here to take care of each other, after all.

Legendary Canadian hardcore punks SNFU have announced a tour of Australia and New Zealand to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album. The band has not toured in this part of the world in nearly 20 years, so the shows are most likely going to sell out.

DyingScene was thrilled to be at the first show of the new “Love Is The Law” tour featuring Unwritten Law and Ten Foot Pole. The tour kicked off in Hollywood, CA at the House of Blues on June 5th, 2015. Southern California mainstays Unwritten Law headlined this show with support from the legendary Ten Foot Pole as the Friday night crowd danced and sang along on the Sunset Strip.
Ten Foot Pole reappeared in the LA scene last December when they headlined the Cyber Tracks Christmas Show at The Roxy. It is great seeing these guys hit the stage again, and they powered through their energetic set at the HOB with fan favorites like “Hammering Out The Details” and “The Getaway.” You can always count on these guys to run around the stage, jump along with the music (which makes for some pretty great photography), and wear some interesting…shorts. With smiles on their faces, you can tell that these guys are happy to be on stage and playing for the audience. If you are planning on catching this tour, make sure to get there in time to see TFP!
Chances are, if you live in Southern California, you have seen Unwritten Law live at some point in your life. These guys are extremely hard working and play local shows regularly. It’s great seeing them put together a full tour and hopefully you will get to check them out in a city closer to you. The band, led by Scott Russo, kept the party going with the staples of their setlist, including “California Sky,” “Shoulda Known Better,” “Up All Night,” “Cailin,” and my personal favorite, “She Says.” It was a great way to spend a Friday night and a great way to kick off this tour!
Check out the full gallery from the show below!
