Show Review: Rebellion Festival Day 1

DS recently attended the annual, 4 day punk rock extravaganza that is Rebellion Festival in Blackpool, North West England. Read the first of our reviews of the festival below – looking back at the ridiculously strong line up on day 1.

Rebellion – Day 1

High summer in the UK is unpredictable down in London. One day it’s beautiful, sunbathing weather. The next it’s pissing it down. But, in Blackpool, as a soft southerner, you can be sure to be freezing, regardless of the fact its early August. You find yourself swept off your feet by the blasting wind and greeted by people in t-shirts looking at you funny for shivering. Luckily, the annual pilgrimage up there is for Rebellion – the unique, 4 day punk festival held in the cavernous Winter Gardens. And a couple of us were there for Dying Scene. [Continued below]

Bad Religion working on new album

Bad Religion bassist Jay Bentley stated in a recent interview with Krone that they have started working on a new album but haven’t booked studio time yet. He explains (thanks to Ultimate-Guitar.com for the translation):

“We have not even talked about when we go to the studio. We are still on the starting line. We do not have a plan to go where the trip is, but we want to go on the journey. Every single Bad Religion album was created exactly like this. It was never about having to do something, but to do it. I can not be forced into anything else in life.”

We’ll keep you posted as more details on the new Bad Religion album come to light. It will be their first full-length studio album since 2013’s True North as well as their first with Mike Dimkich (replacing Greg Hetson) on guitar and Jamie Miller (replacing Brooks Wackerman) on drums.



The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die announce new album “Always Foreign”

Connecticut emo/rock act The World is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die have announced the release of a new album. “Always Foreign” is out on Epitaph on September 29th. “When we started writing we were fresh off Trump being elected, so there’s an anger to the album that’s different from what we’ve done in the past,” says TWIABP vocalist David F Bello. “There’s a lot more resistance thinking throughout the songs—not in a way that’s strictly anti-Trump, but also addressing things like white supremacy and controlling elements of the state.”

To mark the announcement, the band are streaming advance track “Dillon And Her Son” over at The Fader. The album is the followup to 2015’s “Harmlessness”.



Social Distortion’s Mike Ness talks new album, studio plans

In a recent interview, Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness stated that, in the next six-to-nine months, the band will begin pre-production and the recording process of their long-awaited new album, due for release sometime next year. He explains:

“Once this tour ends, we’ll spend six to nine months in pre-production. Then we’ll record the album. I’ll do some reference recordings at our studio, but they’ll be pretty crude. For arrangements and experimenting with stuff, the recordings don’t need to be high-quality.”

Mike also explained why the band takes a long time to make records, “Journalists will say, ‘It’s been seven years since your last record.’ But it didn’t take seven years to write the record. It probably took seven years to wind down from five years of touring. And I have a family, I have responsibilities. Sometimes I need five years to live life, so I have stuff to write about. Sometimes I don’t pick up a guitar for six months, but when I do pick it up, the past six months pour out of me.”

He was also asked if it’s too early to offer a preview of the new record, and his response was, “There are things about Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes I want to keep, but the next album may have more of a garage feel to it. I want it to have a little bit more high energy. And for this new record, unfortunately, I feel like I have to write the album of my career. There’s going to be a lot of thought put into it.”

Social Distortion’s recent album, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, was released in 2011. That was the band’s first release on Epitaph Records, and their first studio album since 2004’s Sex, Love and Rock ‘n’ Roll.
