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.

Album Review: Dog Party – ‘Vol. 4′

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.

DS Photo Gallery & Show Review: Unwritten Law and Ten Foot Pole in Hollywood (6/5/15)

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!

Album Review: Matt Skiba and The Sekrets – ‘KUTS’

It’s safe to say that Matt Skiba knows what he’s doing. He’s been writing his goth-tinged punk songs and pop melodies with Alkaline Trio for nearly twenty years now, and when you include the songs he’s written and performed with The Sekrets, Heavens, theHell, as well as his own name, it’s easy to imagine that he’s picked up a thing or two along the way. KUTS, his second album with Matt Skiba and The Sekrets (featuring the same lineup as before: AFI bassist Hunter Burgen and ex-Death By Stereo drummer Jarrod Alexander), sees him going Full Skiba without looking back.

Much like Babylon, the first album put out under The Sekrets moniker, KUTS takes the successful marriage of Skiba’s catchy hooks and dark lyricism, and tosses heavy doses of synthesizers into the mix. Possibly even more this time around. Fans of Skiba’s songs on more recent Alkaline Trio albums (This Addiction and My Shame Is True in particular) should be pleased. As a matter of fact, there are several songs that sound like they didn’t quite make the cut during the My Shame Is True sessions, as they carry the same themes of heartbreak and separation, likely due to Skiba’s divorce.

It doesn’t offer much by way of genre experimentation, but what KUTS lacks in variety it makes up for in fun, sad songs. From the opening notes of “Lonely and Kold” to the infectious choruses of “Krazy” and “Krashing” (the band likes to replace their C’s with K’s a lot), to the closing notes of “Vienna,” the album is full of top notch pop songs to listen to while drinking, much like one would hope for from the same man that wrote songs such as “Stupid Kid,” “97,” and “Blue in the Face.”

Everything on this album has all been done by before, by Skiba himself nonetheless, but he’s doing things exactly the way he wants them to be done. Who are we to say that he’s wrong?
