The Offspring and 311 cover each other’s songs

Coinciding with the Never-Ending Summer tour, The Offspring have released a cover of 311‘s 1996 hit “Down”, while the latter have released a cover version of The Offspring’s 1994 hit “Self Esteem”. You can hear the new renditions on Spotify or Apple Music, or below.

311’s Nick Hexum recently spoke to Billboard.com about how this idea came together: “It was the Offspring’s idea, and a great idea. They said, ‘We had the idea to cover your song, and we’ve done it,’ and I was like, ‘Wow! I have to hear this,’ ’cause it’s such a signature song. Were they going to cover it faithfully or rework it?’ They reworked it just enough; There’s punk to it, and Dexter (Holland) actually does a killer job of rapping SA (Martinez)’s parts in more of a punk rock style, with fast drums. We were so blown away, It was so my fun to hear that. So we returned the favor and reggaefied (‘Self Esteem’), which is probably my favorite song of theirs. It’ll be a lot of fun to give the fans new versions of these songs they love so much.”

The Offspring’s first album since 2012’s Days Go By is tentatively due for release this year. 311 released their last record Mosaic a year ago and are reportedly working on new music.

Suicidal Tendencies announce release date of new album “Still Cyco Punk After All These Years”

According to various sources, California thrash/hardcore punk legends Suicidal Tendencies will release their highly-anticipated new album Still Cyco Punk After All These Years on September 7th.

While the album’s title is an obvious reference to the re-recording of the band’s iconic 1983 self-titled debut album, Still Cyco After All These Years (originally recorded in 1989 but not released until 1993), it is apparently a re-recording of frontman Mike “Cyco Miko” Muir’s 1996 solo debut album Lost My Brain! (Once Again) in its entirety. The record’s track listing is below.

Suicidal Tendencies released the EP Get Your Fight On! last March, and recently parted ways with Jeff Pogan, whose replacement is former Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman.

DS Photo Gallery: Supersuckers, Legendary Shack Shakers, Nuns of Brixton and more from Chicago’s Motoblot 2018

As promised in our feature on a recent Motoblot 2018 participating band, Mystery Actions, we present to you today a full photo gallery of some highlights from the weekend. If you’re not familiar with Motoblot, allow us to fill you in. Now in its fifth year, Motoblot is an annual vintage motorcycle and hot rod street rally that takes place at Chicago’s Cobra Lounge/All Rise Brewing. Hot rods and motorcycles might be the focal point of the weekend, but music is an ever-present force.

Dying Scene had our Doc Martens on the ground all weekend and captured photos of blistering performances from the likes of Supersuckers, The Legendary Shack Shakers, Mothership, Rotten Finko and the Convicts, Mystery Action, Hot Rod Walt and the Psycho-DeVilles, Wreckin’ Ball, and, of course, Nuns Of Brixton (the only Clash cover band that matters). Head below to check out our full photo gallery!

***Editor’s note: Hi gang, Jay Stone here. Meredith and I had been working through some technical glitches over the last few days to try to get these photos up. We got things (we think) buttoned up and had the post that you see here scheduled to run. And then came Wednesday morning’s news about Johnny Wilson, pictured above. For whatever dopey reason, I’d been out of the loop and and it didn’t quite click to me that he’d been playing drums in Nuns Of Brixton. Johnny meant a lot of a lot of people that he crossed paths with in this weird little scene of ours; sincerest condolences go out to all of his family and friends and bandmates.***



“The Hard Stuff: Dope, Crime, the MC5 and My Life of Impossibilities”, new book by Wayne Kramer

Legendary lead guitarist of MC5 and early punk rock innovator, Wayne Kramer has written a memoir on sale August 14, chronicling his life with MC5 and thereafter, his struggles with addiction and the positivity he’s found through music.

He fought for racial equality with the White Panther Party, became an FBI target, served in federal prison and afterward helped found the non-profit Jail Guitar Doors which aims to rehabilitate inmates with the power of creative musical expression.

Kramer played an intrinsic role in the early institution of the punk rock movement, and has since released ten solo albums and been named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s top 100 guitarists of all time.

If you’re into rock and roll history then I wouldn’t miss out on this one. It sounds like a hell of a read. Distributed through Da Cappo Press, find out more about the title here.

Anyone down for a cover-to-cover bender?

 



The Offspring/Social D to headline Surf City Blitz, motorcycle racing

“This is an incredible line-up of bands over two days, and combined with Roland Sand’s Moto Beach Classic, this is going to be an awesome show…To be a part of an event like this that’s never been done before is pretty cool. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

These words from legendary Social Distortion front man Mike Ness, and honestly I couldn’t have said it better myself. This event looks absolutely epic, with two days of kickass bands on the beach including Bad Religion, Rancid, TSOL, Suicidal Tendencies and more… combined with a dirt track right on the sand for drag racing…

The Offspring‘s Dexter Holland “Can’t wait to hang out on the beach with some of our SoCal punk friends and idols when we play Surf City Blitz.”

If you’re going to be anywhere around Huntington State Beach October 27 and 28 then you can set up your itinerary right here, with tickets for single day passes starting at $49.50, and going on sale this Friday, July 20.

Life Hacks and Awful Man stream split album

Bear with me a bit because this one is a little complicated.  Boston punk act Awful Man was originally supposed to release a split album with fellow Boston band Ex-Planets in 2015, but both bands broke up after procrastinating on that release, so the label canned it.  The members of Awful Man went on to form a new band, Life Hacks.  So when this new band were ready to release their first set of songs, they thought, “Why not put out a split release with the last songs from our former selves?”  And so the Life Hacks/Awful Man split was born.

You can give it a listen below.  The split was released on July 13th via Dead Broke Rekerds.
