Punchline sign with InVogue Records, announce new album “Thrilled”

Pittsburg pop-punk/emo band Punchline announced that they have signed to Ohio’s InVogue Records and will be releasing their new upcoming album Thrilled on December 4th, 2015. Label owner Nick Moore had the follow to say about the upcoming release:

“Punchline is for sure one of my favorite bands of all time so I’m beyond honored to be putting out “Thrilled”. Being an artist, I can say that their albums have had a huge influence on the way I wrote in my band throughout the years. On top of being amazing musicians, they are some of the best guys I’ve ever met in the industry. This new album shows their growth and I haven’t stopped listening since they sent me over the master,”

Bassist Chris Fafalios also made some comments regarding the album:

“Thrilled. That about sums it up. As I sit here listening to our new album, I think about how a year ago, a more appropriate title might have been Bummed. We are now, however, sitting on what I believe to be the best Punchline album yet.”

Pre-orders for the album will begin on October 9th.

Their last release, Politefully Dead, came out in 2013. Check out the video for the title track below and stay tuned for more from these guys soon.

The Matches stream new song “Life of a Match”

In direct contrast to previous statements about not recording new music, The Matches have released a brand new song, their first new song in 6 years. Titled “Life of a Match,” the near five minute tune picks up where the band left off in 2007 with A Band in Hope and appears on a new two song single available now. Vocalist Shawn Harris said this of the song and how it came to be:

“None of us really planned on writing new Matches music, but after the shows, we were hit with inspiration and creativity. While we were living in different places around the U.S. and working on other things, we managed to work remotely on a batch of songs, but zeroed in on two.  We wanted them to be great and something you guys would love.”

You can stream the song here. You can order physical copies of the new single here.

The Matches released a rarities compilation, The Matches Album 4, Unreleased; Graphics? Title? Or Not Needed?, in 2009, and went on hiatus that same year. In late 2014 they played a round of shows celebrating the tenth anniversary of their debut album E. Von Dahl Killed the Locals, and released a live album on their Bandcamp page called 10YearsEVDKTL.

Video: Bobby Pickles interviews Millencolin in Brooklyn

Dying Scene Radio is off this week, but if you didn’t get a chance to catch it - Bobby Pickles had a chance to chat with Mathias Färm and Erik Ohlsson of the legendary Swedish skate-punk band Millencolin prior to their stop at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, a few weeks ago. Pickles probes the two Scandinavian guitarists about that time their mutual friend, Frankie D, an acclaimed tattoo artist who passed away unexpectedly at the age of 35, had the entire band tattoo their signatures onto his leg. Erik says they have the entire encounter on video somewhere and they will post it soon, now that they have heard the news of Frankie’s untimely demise. Bobby also asks the two about Millencolin’s iconic sound, their preference for Viking women, and then relays several offensively idiotic questions that were penned by Bob Noxious.

Watch the FULL video interview below.

Album Review: The Wonder Years – “No Closer To Heaven”

“We’re no saviors if we can’t save our brothers.”

You’d hear it throughout a few songs on No Closer To Heaven. You’d hear Dan ‘Soupy’ Campbell’s voice wailing and cracking as he waxes on about the loss of friends, death in general, drugs and so many personal issues that touch us all. Make no mistake, there are elements of The Wonder Years here that you’d connect to their old pop-punk brand but this album is a much more serious diary. It’s alternative rock, driven, guitar-aggressive, written with so much heart and emotion… but more so, it’s a collective of what makes the world tick for a bunch of guys maturing in the face of tragedy.

“Cardinals” embodies so much of what I mentioned above. Catchy, melodic, warm… yet depressing when you realize how much angst it packs. It diverts from the simpler chords of old and it sets the tone for what’s to come. The loud/soft dynamic of “A Song For Patsy Cline” follows this up and starts of hauntingly a la Brand New before bursting at the seams a la Manchester Orchestra’s “Top Notch”. It’s a well-crafted start/stop dynamic that’s loud and in your face — a perfect precursor to “Cigarettes & Saints” which follows the same pattern.

But fret not for the pop-punk elements of old do crop up. And with some fine-tuning to the rougher edges as well. “I Don’t Like Who I Was Then” and “A Song For Ernest Hemingway” are prime examples of this, evolving their old sound as opposed to the preceding paragraph which feels like a stylistic shift to fit a certain narrative. One thing remains constant though and it’s that no matter which gear The Wonder Years shift to, they pay just service to records of old but as they chart new waters, they’re as full of character and real stories as ever. In fact, this is their best work to date. Bold statement but to me, it rings so true. It’s such a human album that feels like our conscience on fire.

New Music: Seaway – “Airhead”
