Dying Scene Records to release first plugged-in album “Holy Shit” from Chicago acoustic punk act Davey Dynamite

I must admit, when a promo from some Chicago based artist named “Davey Dynamite” hit my inbox a couple weeks ago I did not think I was about to discover the next Dying Scene Records band or what would become one of my top 3 favorite albums of 2016 – I mean, the cover art and the band name didn’t exactly conjure up a mental image of the angst ridden punk rock I typically like to put out on the label. Regardless, I jacked in the headphones, spun up the first track and found myself intrigued 30 seconds in. It appeared to be a catchy yet slower tune but there were hints of a build and by the 1:55 mark, HOLY SHIT!, things just exploded into the saliva spraying, vein popping, voice losing fury that embodies everything I love about punk rock. Turns out this first track was but just a taste of what the rest of the album would hold and by the time I reached the last song I knew I had discovered something extraordinary special. Something I had to share with all of you, starting with the album’s title track, “Holy Shit” which you can check out right here.

On December 20th Dying Scene Records will be releasing “Holy Shit”, the first fully plugged-in album from Chicago acoustic-punk act Davey Dynamite.

If you’re new to Davey Dynamite he is as political as he is emotional and you might say he is the folk-gone-electric lineage of O Pioneers! and Against Me! born anew in the vein of Chicago punk rock.

While Dying Scene Records is handling digital distribution, the folks at Don’t Panic Records & Distro are handling vinyl, which you can pre-order here.

Half of proceeds collected for this album will be donated to the water protectors fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock.

DS Exclusive: Danvers premiere new song off upcoming LP “Jazz Standards”

Remember when we covered Pittsburgh pop-punk prodigies and overall solid dudes Danvers in our Hidden Gems feature about a year ago? No? Well, after discovering them and their impeccable EP Gallant, Side C, we said this of them: “They still need some work, but not all gems come polished and ready to be affixed in a fine, golden setting. Some require a little bit of work and those are our favorite gems. The ones that you grow with and invest in. Luckily, these boys appear to have that blue collar work ethic that you would expect from some Steel City kids.”

Now, we’re not saying we were right, but the boys sent us a new track off of their upcoming, fourteen song album Jazz Standards, and holy shit…we were right! Just as we thought, these boys have put it the work and have made magnificent strides since the last time we heard them.

Don’t believe us? Gold Star for you! Always question what you’re told! Luckily, you don’t have to take our word for it. You can listen to it for yourself exclusively here at DyingScene!  Stream “Save the War Stories, Hot Shot” below and then head over to Bandcamp to pre-order the album today. The album is set for digital release on August 15th and vinyl later on in October.
