None or Unknown
Holy. Fucking. Shit. Those were the exact words that came out of my mouth when I first heard The Greatest Sons. This Canadian 3-piece's debut EP "We'll Take The Road" is pure perfection and it's got a little bit of something just about everyone can enjoy, mixing the fast-paced fury of NOFX with the The Bouncing Souls' bass-heavy sound and The Loved Ones' melodicism. That's all I've really got to say - stop reading this and go over to Bandcamp and listen to this bad ass EP!

So it looks like this video has been floating around the web for a while now but its the first that its come to my attention and I thought it was hilarious. Somebody did a great job editing and dubbing NOFX‘s “All Outta Angst” over an old Donald Duck cartoon and I gotta say, it came out perfectly. Watch it below.

Skate punk super group Implants are looking for a little help from you to get a tour van.
The band recently kicked off an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the van, so they can do some extensive touring throughout the US and Canada.
The campaign features some pretty sweet perks, especially for those willing to spend a bit of extra dough. In the market for a new (signed) guitar or three? Or how about NOFX guitarist El Hefe’s (signed) trumpet? You can check out the campaign and donate right here.
Implants released their debut full-length, From Chaos to Disorder, in May 2013 through El Hefe’s label Cyber Tracks.Add to My Radar
So here’s a new organization much in line with what Dying Scene is all about. Bird Attack is a new podcast and record label that has just launched with its first episode and a pretty killer roster of melodic/skate punk bands. Here’s a press snippet from Bird Attack themselves:
Established in 2012 and broadcasting out of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, Bird Attack Punk Rock Radio was founded by Garrett Wadford based on an absolute unwavering love for punk rock – Fast, Loud, Shredding, Melodic, Skate punk to be exact. “I consider the genre I love to be more of an underground group of bands that deserve to get more exposure. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Pennywise, Lagwagon, Strung Out (and other similar bands) with a passion, but the new music that really gets me fired up as of late, has a hint of metal to it, which brings an extra level of AMP! to the table.”
“I have always loved performing in some way shape or form, whether it has been on stage playing or behind the mic, focused on the voice only approach, so I decided to bring the music I was passionate about to the airwaves or internet-waves, as it has now morphed to a podcast.”
We are bringing new school punk mixed with the best older punk from as far back as 15 years, mixing it up with roughly 20 songs, throwing in a prank call, adding a dash of comedy and slamming the door shut with an insane interview from some of the best names in punk rock! These interviews range from different members of bands from across the spectrum; Pennywise to Lagwagon, Belvedere to Forus, Dutch Nuggets to Counterpunch. We are really turning up the quality this year.
Finally, the podcast is professionally produced, so whether you are playing it in your headphones or cranking it at your house or in your car, you are going to love the quality!
They haven’t announced any new releases yet but it looks like they’re helping to distribute previous releases from some great skate punk acts including Dutch Nuggets, The Human Project, Adrenalized, Forus, Does It Matter and Whaleface.
