The 25 Best Punk Albums of 2015 (So Far)

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.

DS Records comp features new tracks from Stray Bullets, Ellesmere, A Dying Regime, & Yankee Brutal

When I was younger one of the pivotal releases responsible for getting me obsessed with punk rock was the first Fat Wreck Chords compilation, “Fat Music For Fat People”.  It introduced me to a bunch of bands that I still cherish today and though I became quite familiar with the label’s roster afterward, I would still eagerly await each new Fat comp simply for the few previously unreleased tracks they would inevitably feature.

Sadly, that tradition sorta fizzled away, but as an homage to the glory days of “Fat Music For Fat People”, “Punk O Rama” and the rest of those fantastic label comps put out in the 90′s it is my distinct pleasure to bring you “Dying Music For A Dying Scene”, the first Dying Scene Records compilation.

It includes 2 tracks from each band on the label including brand new, previously unreleased tunes from Stray Bullets, Ellesmere, A Dying Regime and Yankee Brutal.  Oh, and did I mention its FREE?

Please give the comp a listen below and download it for free on bandcamp.

Ellesmere launch merch store, giving away previously unreleased song with purchases

Vancouver skate-punk act Ellesmere have launched a new sale in their merch store to help pay for their upcoming studio time.  To help motivate you they’re offering to give away a previously unreleased song with larger purchases.  Here’s what they had to say:

“We live! And we are immensely excited to be heading into the studio this May to finally record some new tunes! In the mean time how would you like to get your ears on an unreleased b-side from the Bail City EP? We just updated our online store with all the merch we have left. If you spend $25 or more we will email you the un-released (and most likely never-to-be released) b-side from Bail City (WARNING: don’t let the kiddies listen). The more money we make the more studio time we can get to make this next release the best it can be!”

The band plans to head into the studio May 8th to record the highly anticipated follow-up to their 2013 debut EP “Bail City” which came out through our very own Dying Scene Records.  You can/should stream it here.

Ellesmere (skate punk) recording new “faster and harder” EP

Good news skate punk fans!  Vancouver’s Ellesmere have announced that they’ll be heading into the studio on May 8th to record 4 new tracks for an upcoming EP.  As for what fans can expect from the new material here’s a couple interesting tidbits from the band:

“We’ll be keeping our flow for the next album so it ties in with the last EP, but stepping up our game a bit in all respects,” says drummer Jordan.  Singer Kurt Anderson adds, “The new tunes will be overall faster and harder but still melodic and catchy.  One song can actually get played right after ‘Man Horse’ as a continuation of the last riff.”

Sounds aces to me!

For those of you somehow not in the know, Ellesmere released their debut EP “Bail City” in December 2013 through Dying Scene Records.  It was very well received by any punk who considered themselves a fan of “Punk In Drublic” and if that piques your interest you can stream it here.

Stabbed In Back (Dying Scene Records) stream “Missing Pieces” off upcoming album “Dasvidaniya”

In less than one week New Mexico punk act Stabbed In Back will be releasing their long awaited and highly anticipated debut full-length “Dasvidaniya” on our very own Dying Scene Records.  To pump you guys up for the release we’re premiering “Missing Pieces”, a new song from the album, with the fine folks at ForTheLoveOfPunk.  This 2 minute chunk of blisteringly fast punk rock intensity just might be my favorite tune on the release.  Crank up the volume, give it a listen, and let me know what you think in the comments.

Dasvidaniya will be officially released on March 31st.  You can pre-orders the album and listen to three additional tunes (“Dead Inside”, “Dasvidaniya”, and “More Songs About Drinking And Blood”) right here.

Stabbed In Back (Dying Scene Records) premiere “Dead Inside” off upcoming album “Dasvidaniya”

Today New Mexico punk act Stabbed In Back are premiering a brand new tune off their highly anticipated debut full-length Dasvidaniya. The track is titled “Dead Inside” and you can give it a listen right now over at Exclaim!

Here’s what they had to say about the song:

“The band have been playing together since 2004, and more than a decade later, they’re ready to reveal 24-minute-long record of fast, furious punk rock. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that “Dead Inside” clocks in at under three minutes, but the track proves that quantity isn’t more important than quality.

Despite the short timespan, Stabbed in Back manage to deliver breakneck drums, loud guitars and vocals that run the gamut from melodic to menacing on “Dead Inside.” The lyrical content is bit grim, with a repeated refrain of “Living is easy when you’re dead inside,” but it’s a feisty, fistpump-friendly beast of a song, nonetheless.”

Dasvidaniya is slated for release on March 31st via the worthless hacks at Dying Scene Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available here where you can also stream two more tracks from the record (“Dasvidaniya” and “More Songs About Drinking And Blood”).

Stabbed In Back stream epic punk anthem “More Songs About Drinking And Blood” off upcoming album

Stop what you’re doing, jack in your earphones, and blast this track because I promise you one thing; “More Songs About Drinking And Blood” will be the best punk rock anthem you’ve heard this month.  Guaranteed.

The track will appear on Stabbed In Back‘s debut full-length album “Dasvidaniya”, slated for release on March 31st via the ridiculously good looking folks at Dying Scene Records.

Want more?  You can stream one more track and digitally pre-order the album now on bandcamp.
