New Episode of Dying Scene Radio! Back after hiatus with new time/format. Interview with Fraser Murderburger about recording with Masked Intruder. Also, Mike Beer of Sparklefight.

This week on Dying Scene RadioBob Noxious and Bobby Pickles are finally back after nearly a month long hiatus! There’s been a mini format change, plus new episodes are posting each and every Monday morning. Get yourself a recap of last week’s new music and headlines, brought to you by the Bobs. On this week’s episode, Bobby talks about his travels to Floriduhh where he gets too drunk to record a DSR podcast episode with Bob in-person. Bobby asks Bob if he’s ever seen the iconic 80’s punk movie, Dudes (1987), directed by Penelope Spheeris; Bob mentions that he and the acclaimed Decline of Western Civilization director are Facebook friends. Bobby asks Bob if he ever likes bands’ Facebook pages, prior to listening to any of their music, simply based on their ridiculous name. Bob thinks new NOFX music is not newsworthy because they’re always dropping new music. Bobby informs Bob that Fat Wreck Chords has only existed for 24 years and nobody checked to verify dates – everyone just bought the 25 year anniversary marketing ploy. Bobby gives 45 Adapters frontman Pickabar a FAT ENZO BB Allin t-shirt at the 2015 Long Island Punk Rock BBQ. Bill stevenson declares Propagandhi the best band ever. Bob declares that Fletcher Dragge is a name nazi. Bobby interviews Fraser Murderburger about doing a pre-order in lieu of a crowdfunding campaign, recording with Masked Intruder, Matt Allison (Atlas Studios), and having a million different drummers involved with The Murderburgers’ line-up during the band’s existence. Bobby says Bob should go join The Murderburgers too  - since his band, PigPen, dawns masks just like the Masked Intruder fellas. Bob says he won’t be wearing a mask in his next band because it’s too hot. Bob talks about attending Underoath’s high school in Tampa, FL. Bobby accuses Bob of “lazy thievery” – not wanting to steal the new Epitaph sampler via one-track on youtube. Bob “drops the mic” on Bobby, then reads two weird definitions of the newly accepted pop culture phrase; the alternative definition of which brings this week’s episode rating from R to X for vulgarity. Bobby declares, “Darkbuster must be a great name to hear uttered in the Boston accent!” Then, Bob attempts a Boston accent but sounds more like Vinnie Barbarino from Welcome Back, Kotter. While discussing Iron Reagan’s (Bobby mispronounces name) new craft beer flavor by Stragtimes Brewery, Bob tells Bobby the tale of PigPen’s Stale Ale and Swine Wine. Bob realizes that he could never go solo because he would have to rival the Bobnoxious band of Canada. Bob wonder why contests are so difficult these days, referencing New Found Glory’s music video contest, Bob says to win you have to be multi-talented. DSR could be the official podcast of FEST 14 in Gainesville – so stay tuned for that. Bob discusses his “hipster neighborhood” and having not mowed his lawn since finding out his house is to be sold. Sparklefight in the news, so Bobby reaches out to Mike Beer about a commercial they made in jest nearly 4 years ago – there’s a Facebook protest group calling for the boycott of Connie’s Ric Rac because they say the video (which is pure schtick) supports rape culture. Mike argues their side of the story, explaining why they won’t take down the video – it’s the principality of the situation. New one-man band, Distorted Signals, lives in a van down by the river, and they/he/she also records their/his/her records in said van, as well. Episode 27’s recurring themes: name nazis and bad words, which start with the letter “C”.

Zebrahead debut new song “Save Your Breath” off upcoming album “Walk The Plank”

Orange County punk/alternative rock act Zebrahead are now streaming the lyric video for a new song, “Save Your Breath,” off their upcoming album titled Walk The Plank.

Give it a listen below.

Walk the Plank is a follow up to 2013′s Call Your Friends and will be released this October. Since then, Zebrahead released The Early Years – Revisited as well as a split 7″ with Japan’s Man On A Mission earlier this year.



Album Review: You Vandal – “Abandon All Hope”

You Vandal play a form of emotive pop punk somewhat removed from the saccharine variety their Saves the Day-inspired moniker might imply. Instead, the Gainesville group employs a 90s alternative-leaning sound that owes more to early Brand New and like-minded UK brethren Moose Blood. Sound like an interesting mix? It is!

Abandon All Hope ticks off the necessary boxes over the course of its satisfying run-time. The band at times echoes the uptempo flair of Jimmy Eat World, particularly on the title track, while vocalist Eric Cannon has a knack for channeling Adam Lazzara with his charismatic delivery and catchy lyricism. The album pleasantly eschews genre archetypes by occasionally slowing things down and settling into a melodic groove (“Pixies,” “O.K.”) or upping the distortion and letting their grunge influences shine through (“No Fun,” “Die Alone”).

The only knock against the album is that some of the slower tracks tend to run together, though when they’re this enjoyable is that really a con? Pop punk and emo aficionados and fans of the aforementioned bands should spend some time with You Vandal. They haven’t reached the genre-defining heights of their namesake, but they have put together an album with hooks for days and the tight musicianship of a group clearly working to hone their craft. Recommended listening.

3.5 / 5 – Listen below.

Standout tracks: “Abandon All Hope,” “Say It Out Loud,” “Take Me Home”

Dowzer release music video for “My Number One”
