Well, if this isn’t the coolest thing I’ve ever written a story on I don’t know what is!

The guys in Less Than Jake have partnered with the nice people at the Sing Me a Story Foundation to release a song to gather donations for Gilda’s Club Nashville – an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community which is dedicated to providing support, education and hope to all people affected by any type of cancer, including the family members and friends of those diagnosed.

Titled “Warm Chicken,” the song was written by an 11-year old boy named Gabe who really likes Minecraft! It can be heard on the Sing Me a Story Foundation’s official website, and if you donate money to the cause you’ll get an mp3 of the track.

I started Dying Scene because I love discovering new punk music, which is why I love seeing comps like “D.I.Y. In The Summertime” being released.  It’s full of a ton of punk, hardcore and skacore bands I’ve never heard of.  A lot of them are terrible, I won’t lie, BUT there are definitely a few gems on this release, so if you’re one of those fringe diggers who get a thrill out of new band discoveries I recommend you give it a listen below.  Especially if you like bands like Leftover Crack.

Oh, and this comp was released for a good cause too.  It benefits the Manchester Hun Sabs. Association who fight back against the fox hunters in Manchester who are hunting illegally. All proceeds from the album will go to them.

The Last Slice’s van, trailer, and gear stolen in Miami, FL

Posted by Screeching Bottlerocket on Saturday, July 19, 2014 at 11:43 AM (PST)

Extremely unfortunate news coming out of The Last Slice‘s camp today. According to a recent post on the band’s Facebook page, their van and trailer, which contained all of their musical equipment and some personal belongings, were stolen last night when The Ska Revival Tour stopped in Miami, Florida, leaving them stranded with little money:

“Last night in Miami, FL our van and trailer were stolen. This had all of our musical equipment including a brand new drum set, nord organ, bass cab and amp , guitar amp, two guitars and a bass, saxophone, trombone, keyboard amp, two computers, two camcorders, and all our clothes! We’re not sure what is going to happen right now, but we’re stranded. WE’RE ASKING FOR PAYPAL DONATIONS IF ANYONE CAN HELP US OUT PLEASE SEND MONEY TO (ethan_thelastslice@yahoo.com)”

Please, if you can, help these guys out. And if you’re in or around Miami, keep an ear to the ground. It’s horrible that this seems to be happening more and more often but until things change we need to be there to help bands that fall victim to theft while on the road.

Sublime With Rome to begin recording new album in November

Posted by ChrisDude on Friday, July 18, 2014 at 11:53 AM (PST)

Sublime With Rome have announced that they will be entering the studio in November to begin recording their second album, which will be their first since 2011′s Yours Truly, and their first without drummer Bud Gaugh, who has been replaced by Josh Freese. About the album, frontman/guitarist Rome Ramirez told Billboard.com:

“We already have some songs and stuff we’ve been working on. That’s what this tour is — we’re doing some of the old favorites and some of the stuff we’ve been working on in the studio and backstage and stuff like that. We have a shit-ton of parts and probably have five or six songs completed, half the album.”

The new album is being self-produced by the band, but Rome noted, “I’ve been talking to a couple of people I would like to bring on board. I would be doing a lot of the album, but there’s obviously some people who are so talented and bring so much to the music I’d really want to involve them in the project and get their ideas in here.”

Askultura (gypsy rumba ska punk) stream new album “I.N.F.E.R.N.O.”

Posted by vivalalexy on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 2:36 PM (PST)

Miami worldly punk ska group Askultura is streaming their June 12th album release “I.N.F.E.R.N.O.” and you can check it out, along with some of their upcoming tour dates, below.

I had the good fortune of seeing Askultura last week in my hometown opening for Mrs. Skanotto and they put on an absolutely incredible show. There was almost no one in the crowd but the energy on the stage made it one of the best performances I’ve ever experienced. The band has nine members, they travel around in a yellow school bus, and they are very friendly, down to earth people.

The group’s mission statement does a pretty great job of summing them up:

Mission Statement: To spread the party gospel of energia positiva & symphonic rumba punk elements to all curves of the galaxy. To exercise the spirit of the streets on stage. To hang with good people in every town Askultura is lucky enough to pass through. To incite moments of brief rebellion while leaving a lasting aftertaste for change.
