Problem Daughter premiere the catchiest damn punk song you will hear this year

If you’re ever going to stop and take three minutes out of your day to stream a song from a band you might not be familiar with, Problem Daughter‘s “Like A Dog” is that song. It’s off their upcoming album “Fits of Disorganized Boredom”, and yes I f’ing love the entire album, but this is the song that literally gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it. Stream it below and see if it does the same for you (if it doesn’t, you’re not listening to it loud enough. Try again).

“Fits Of Disorganized Boredom” is slated for release on February 24th through Dying Scene Records (pre-order it here).



Introducing Folk Punk Artist Ryan Kerr

If you’re in the mood for some brooding, whisky drenched, americana folk-punk I have a new artist that you need to check out, right now. Ryan Kerr hails from Fort Wayne, Indiana and on February 28th he’ll be releasing a new full-length titled “Live Well” that is one of the more honest and beautiful albums I’ve seen come out of the americana/folk-punk genre in quite some time. Just give the song “A Ghost (While I Wait)” a listen below and see if you disagree.



Problem Daughter sign to Dying Scene Records for release of new album “Fits Of Disorganized Boredom”

Four days ago I received an email from a band I’d never heard of imploring me to give their newly recorded album a listen. It’s by no means an uncommon occurrence and for perhaps the ten-thousandth time I dutifully plugged in my headphones, clicked a play button and prepared to halfheartedly listen while I moved on to the next email. Thirty seconds in I had to stop typing and turn up the volume. By the end of the first song I suspected I had stumbled onto something special and by the third song I was sending the album off to a few trusted DS reviewers demanding they check it out. When the sixth song literally gave me goosebumps I decided I desperately wanted to put the album out on Dying Scene Records.

So, today, after a flurry of phone calls and emails, it is with great pleasure that I announce Salt Lake City punk act Problem Daughter will be releasing their sophomore album Fits Of Disorganized Boredom through Dying Scene Records on February 24th.

In regards to the band’s sound, think the melodic earnestness of a Flatliners meets Banner Pilot but with the grand, incendiary arrangements of Morning Glory. Confused? Just judge for yourself by streaming the album’s first track “O Bother, Where Art Though?” below.

Bridge City Sessions debuts with live performances of Western Settings/ Gentlemen Prefer Blood

Newly minted YouTube channel Bridge City Sessions has posted some killer footage of SoCal melodic punks Western Settings and Gentlemen Prefer Blood.

The channel was formed by Portland’s Davey Death Ray, formerly of Absent Minds and Danger Death Ray and all around presence in the PDX punk scene. He had this to say on his new project:

“Bridge City Sessions is a relatively new project concocted by myself and a few fellow musician friends. Basically, it’s a YouTube show where we capture live, in-studio performances by musicians. The idea is that exposure for up-and-coming bands can be difficult to come by and we want to offer another platform for musicians to have their music heard. We strive for a professional presentation all around in order to allow the bands to be able to showcase their specific brand of boss tuneage.”

You can check out the video here and download the recorded tracks at bandcamp.

Believe it or not, 2015 is already half over. There’s a lot to look forward to in the coming months with Frank Turner, Spraynard, and more all gearing up to put out new albums, but we at Dying Scene decided to get introspective for a moment and take a look at some of our favorite albums that were released in the last six months.

Anything released between January 1, 2015 and June 30, 2015 was up for consideration, and after several long nights of endless yelling and countless insults (okay… it was really just one long email chain), we were able to narrow it down to 25 releases. Organized by release date, you can find our collective choices for the best punk albums of 2015 so far below.
