Good news for Blaqk Audio fans; album #3 is in the works!

In a new interview that appeared on The Sunset Strip, Davey Havok had this to say regarding the electronica duo that also includes his AFI bandmate, Jade Puget:

And Jade and I, we’re done writing the new Blaqk Audio record; so we should be recording [that] very soon I would hope… And I would imagine that would come out this year as well.

Blaqk Audio’s last album, “Bright Black Heaven,” was released back in September 2012 on Superball Music. No word on why they spelled “black” correctly in the title.

Album Review: Shinobu – “10 Thermidor”

Posted by Bizarro Dustin on Monday, January 26, 2015 at 6:48 PM (PST)

On Friday, January 2, not even a full 48 hours into 2015, Shinobu took the metaphorical bar that we all use to measure how great or terrible things can be, and launched it into the atmosphere by releasing their brand new album 10 Thermidor. It’s always kind of unfair when a band sets the bar high so early into a new year, but at the same time, who really cares when the music is this good?

For an album with two songs that surpass the six minute mark, 10 Thermidor is a surprisingly quick listen and it’s over much too soon. It’s easy to get lost in the melodies of each and every song. From the opening progressions of “Untitled Michael Haneke Project”, 10 Thermidor casts its hook and reels listeners in with things like the repeated refrain of “It’s a lie” in “Culture, Inc.”, the aggressive, in-your-face “Jokes”, and the bouncing bass and “oooos” of “9 Thermidor”. By the time you reach the title track, it’s hard to believe that it’s already over.

Whether it’s Jeff Rosenstock’s production [Editor's note: I've been informed that Rosenstock did not produce this album, his involvement was merely as the "hot-shot record mogul"] or due to guitarist/vocalist Mike Huguenor’s time spent with the likes of Hard Girls, Classics of Love, and The Bruce Lee Band, or simply because it’s just the natural progression of musical evolution between friends, 10 Thermidor is Shinobu’s most accessible album to date. Gone are the short interludes and filler tracks, resulting in a much more consistent listen. That said, the album still has plenty of quirks to keep it grounded in Shinobu’s indie rock background, including quietly layered keyboards to oddball guitar riffs, and a two minute emptiness in “The Void” (pretty clever, you guys).

Being the first record to be released in 2015 (well… probably the first), can be a lot of pressure, but 10 Thermidor handles that pressure with ease. It’s a fun, catchy, strong album and a promising start to a new musical year. Don’t sleep on it because of its early January release.

4 / 5 – Don’t let this one slip into the void, stream it below!

Letlive. barred from playing Florida venue

Posted by Lauren Mills on Monday, January 12, 2015 at 10:19 AM (PST)

letlive have been barred from playing the House of Blues in Orlando, FL.  Here’s what the bad had to say,

Ladies and Gentlemen that were planning on attending the Lake Buena Vista, Florida date at the House Of Blues on the upcoming tour with Taking Back Sunday and The Menzingers and expecting to see ll.- due to reasons we cannot control, we will not be permitted to play said date. We have just been notified by the people at Disney Orlando/HOB that we have been pulled from the event. We cannot offer any details as to why since we were given none ourselves. Rumor has it that Goofy, Pluto, and most of Toontown were in protest against the decision, but Chairman Mouse exercised veto powers and struck down the proposition in the end. In the meantime, we will be trying to set up a one off at another venue in place of the this. Thank you so much for the unwavering support. It’s moments like these we deeply appreciate it/you.

You can read more here. “The Blackest Beautiful” was released July 9th via Epitaph Records.

Random Cover Song: Samiam – “Here Comes Your Man” (Pixies)

Posted by Bizarro Dustin on Thursday, January 8, 2015 at 11:45 AM (PST)

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 Samiam and their cover of the Pixies tune “Here Comes Your Man”. The original version of the song first appeared on the Pixies’ 1989 album Doolittle, and Samiam’s version was recorded for the 1999 tribute album Where Is My Mind?: A Tribute to the Pixies.

You can listen to both versions of the song below.
