New Music: Cory Branan streams new track “Imogene” from upcoming album “Adios”

Assuming we haven’t been swallowed up by the fiery hellscape of damnation by the first week of April, we’ll have a new Cory Branan album to look forward to!

It’s called Adios, and it’s billed as “Cory’s death album.” If you saw him out on the road with the likes of Chuck Ragan or Brian Fallon or Lucero last year, you got a taste of what’s to come by way of a song called “The Vow,” penned as an ode to his late father. It’s heart-breaking but razor-sharp, which is pretty much Branan’s wheelhouse.

Adios is due out April 7th on Branan’s longtime label home, Bloodshot Records. Pre-orders of the album, including limited-edition pink vinyl (which yours truly just did — apropos on a day like today) are available here. In the meantime, you can stream the album’s lead single, “Imogene,” right here, and check out Branan’s upcoming tour dates here. Stay tuned for more on Adios in the coming months.

Branan’s last album, “The No Hit Wonder,” was released back in 2014 on Bloodshot Records,

Davey Dynamite (Dying Scene Records) talks new album, new sound and new plans

There’s a moment in a short school project film about the Chicago folk punk scene where Davey Dynamite stands, legs apart, a battered guitar around his neck, locking eyes with a bearded man less than a meter away as he sings his heart out for all he’s worth. The man bellows the lyrics back with the same amount of intensity and gusto, as if the lyrics mean as much to him as to the young man who wrote them. Rather surprisingly, that bearded man turns out to be a professor of Anthropology which seems to be a fitting summary of Davey Dynamite the artist. He is a singer with that rare ability to connect with his audience on their level no matter who they are or where they come from. He has that uncanny ability to frame instantly relatable lyrics around passionate and powerful punk songs.

Davey grew up in and around Chicago and has been playing as “Davey Dynamite” since 2010 when he discovered the city’s thriving and nurturing punk scene. After a number of solo acoustic albums sprinkled with a handful of “plugged-in” tunes, his new album “Holy Shit” finds him supported by a full band on every track. It is without doubt one of the most inspiring, raw and dynamic releases of the last 12 months. 11 taut, anthemic punk songs replete with irresistible hooks and seismic choruses that sit somewhere between Frank Turner and Against Me! Just like those artists he has an exceptional ability to write lyrics that describe the human condition in new and interesting ways. Below, Davey tells us more about the recording of “Holy Shit”, his influences and what inspires him to write songs that rally against injustice and intolerance in contemporary society.

It will be getting mixed and mastered within the next couple weeks and will be available digitally through cdbaby, followed by all online outlets. December 30th, forever changing my life, was supposed to be the release of #lostandlosingit, but due to the busy holiday season and schedules not always lining up, the release date has been changed to Valentine’s Day. I really hope you guys dig these new songs, but more than that I hope they help others who have gone through hard times and have had trouble finding their way out. These songs aren’t about fictional monsters, but are based on my own reality within this last year. I will begin 2017 a stronger person having dealt with a divorce I didn’t want and the letting go of past beliefs about God, love, and purpose. Some people take counseling in a private room to deal with their demons. I write songs for everyone to hear. This album has been my therapy.
