Orlando, Florida’s Debt Neglector has sign with Smartpunk Records just in time to release their debut full length which is out on August 18th. From what we’ve heard this one’s gonna rip.

Since we’ve still got a few weeks ’til the album drops, we begged the guys to let us premiere the debut video from the impending AtomiclandWhen asked about the video for the title track, Guitarist Chris Pfister told us “We try to maintain as much of a DIY, in-house mentality as much as possible. Between the four of us we bring a pretty well balanced mix of skill sets integral to being in a band: from art to merch and video production. Zach (Anderson, drums) is the video guy, he made this himself, with the help of our good friend Michael Eliassen and bunch of free stock video clips from the Cold War.” Point your peepers at Zach’s masterpiece below.

DS Exclusive: Technicians Premiere “Funk/Spring” Off of Upcoming Debut LP “Now That We’re Home”

Forming near the end of the Bush era, Washington, DC’s politically charged melodic hardcore act Technicians have never been afraid of voicing their anger towards the administration with their passionate anti-war stance often a theme in their writing. Now, it seems they have a new target in our Nation’s Capitol to direct their frustrations at and their debut LP, Now That We’re Home (due out April 14th) is the culmination of that ire. Fully recorded in 2015, the quartet was  unhappy with the result and decided to start from scratch, re-recorded it themselves. In addition to the incredible cover art, the album features well written, topical songs, shredding guitars and unique, gut rumbling bass riffs. Stream it, exclusively here at Dying Scene, below!

The folk punk scene in The City of Angels is stacked with all sorts of awesome acts. Today, we’re proud to present you with one of our favorite bands from that extraordinarily deep pool of talent. Birote the Musical, from San Dimas, plays a unique, experimental brand of aggressive, foot stomping folk. The trio has been around for about five years now and has become a staple of the scene when not on tour. We caught them at one of LA’s (in)famous backyard shows a year ago and instantly fell in love with their chaotic, rustic style. So, we got in touch and begged them to send us a track to stream, exclusively for Dying Scene readers and although begging shouldn’t be rewarded, they were kind enough to comply!
