DS Exclusive: One Armed Joey (Pop Punk) Premieres Video For “You and Your Friends Are Dead (Game Over)” From Upcoming EP

When last we heard from San Francisco pop punkers One Armed Joey we were lauding their debut EP White Windowless Vans back in 2015. Now, the trio is back with more music worthy of our praise! Their new EP, The Best We Know How is due out on May 12th but we got our hands on a video premiere from the upcoming release. “You and Your Friends Are Dead (Game Over)” is a ‘Day in the life’ style video, following the lads as they tour, party, and record in the studio. If you have a penchant for percussionists, you’re gonna love this one as it features an awesome drummer cam for you to watch James Allen’s handy work in astonishment. Pop, melodic hardcore, skate? We don’t care what you call it, just watch it below exclusively, here on Dying Scene!



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!

FFO: Tool; Fugazi; At The Drive-In

So the boys sent over the first single from the new album to stream, exclusively for our readers! If the single isn’t enough to satisfy your itch, the boys are hitting the road on “The Scutches Go West Again Tour” later this week, so if they show up in your neighborhood, go show ’em some support (dates and stops below). Until then, jam out on the debut single “One True Crutch”, below!

DS Exclusive: Birote the Musical (Folk Punk) Premieres “Christmas Boy The Vietnamese Wonder” From New LP “Bulldog”

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! The song, “Christmas Boy The Vietnamese Wonder” is from their second LP Bulldog which was released late last year. Give it a listen, below. We’re pretty sure you’re gonna dig it!

Hermosa Beach’s One Square Mile is comprised of former members of Saccharine Trust, War Called Peace, Zero Down, The Resolutions and others and that pedigree shows! Right out of the gate, these guys are already adding to the lineage, with an authentic, old school, blue collar hardcore sound that has been the calling card of the area for decades. But don’t take our word for it! To celebrate their debut EP the guys sent us a track to stream, exclusively for our darling readers! So, less reading, more thrashing!!! Stream the debut single “Judge, Jury, Executioner” below!

DS Exclusive: Among Legends (Pop Punk) Premieres “The Wall” From Upcoming EP “Starting Over”

This pop punk trio from Waterloo, Ontario recently leveled up to a quartet with the addition of their new drummer, Sara Fellin. But that’s not the only news coming from their camp lately, they’ve also announced the release of a new EP due out on February 28th! Titled Starting Over, the seven track EP combines catchy, energetic music with messages of inclusiveness and positivity. Since we’re entitled assholes that are above having to wait, we begged the band to send us a track to premiere and damn if they didn’t! When asked about the featured single, lead guitarist and primary songwriter Cameron Bechtloff said, “‘The Wall’ is a song about never giving up on the people you care about. The strongest relationships can make it through some pretty bitter fights, and this song takes place in one of those times where that bond is really tested.” With the recent uptick in wall popularity, this single should be an instant hit! Stream it below!

DS Exclusive: Tired (Hardcore) Premieres Debut EP “It’s All a Lie”

We got ourselves a twofer today, kiddies! Not only are we premiering a new EP, but this hardcore act from Durham, North Carolina is fresh to the scene also! We don’t know much about them yet other than they are a ‘supergroup’ of sorts consisting of members of Dogs Eyes, Almost People and Severed Fingers, all bands from The Great North State. Outside of that, the only other thing we know for sure is that the EP fucking rips! It’s four tracks of acerbic, contentious brutality and if you couldn’t tell by the album cover, most of their ire stems from the current state of the country. Perfect timing to welcome in the new regime! Check out all four face-meltingly (?) fast songs below!



Davey Dynamite (Dying Scene Records) talks new album, new sound and new plans

There’s a moment in a short school project film about the Chicago folk punk scene where Davey Dynamite stands, legs apart, a battered guitar around his neck, locking eyes with a bearded man less than a meter away as he sings his heart out for all he’s worth. The man bellows the lyrics back with the same amount of intensity and gusto, as if the lyrics mean as much to him as to the young man who wrote them. Rather surprisingly, that bearded man turns out to be a professor of Anthropology which seems to be a fitting summary of Davey Dynamite the artist. He is a singer with that rare ability to connect with his audience on their level no matter who they are or where they come from. He has that uncanny ability to frame instantly relatable lyrics around passionate and powerful punk songs.

Davey grew up in and around Chicago and has been playing as “Davey Dynamite” since 2010 when he discovered the city’s thriving and nurturing punk scene. After a number of solo acoustic albums sprinkled with a handful of “plugged-in” tunes, his new album “Holy Shit” finds him supported by a full band on every track. It is without doubt one of the most inspiring, raw and dynamic releases of the last 12 months. 11 taut, anthemic punk songs replete with irresistible hooks and seismic choruses that sit somewhere between Frank Turner and Against Me! Just like those artists he has an exceptional ability to write lyrics that describe the human condition in new and interesting ways. Below, Davey tells us more about the recording of “Holy Shit”, his influences and what inspires him to write songs that rally against injustice and intolerance in contemporary society.



Problem Daughter release music video for “My Other House Is A Meth Lab”

Salt Lake City pop-punk outfit Problem Daughter have just premiered a new live footage based music video for their epic track “My Other House Is A Meth Lab”, a song as entertainingly quirky as it is poppy, and you can check it out below.

The track is off Problem Daughter’s latest album “Fits of Disorganized Boredom” released last February through Dying Scene Records. If you haven’t heard them yet or missed them on tour with Direct Hit! then we seriously need to get you out from under that rock you’ve been living under! Stream the entire album on bandcamp and find out what all the hype is about.

Word on the street is Problem Daughter are working on material for a new album. More details coming soon!



DS Exclusive: Nathan Leigh Premieres New LP “Ordinary Eternal Machinery”

A few weeks back we premiered the supremely good single “The Slumlord’s Kids” from folk punk, Nathan Leigh. Well, you guys loved it so much Mr. Leigh said that when the new album was released, he’d let you guys get a hold of it first! Well, the day of it’s release is upon us and he made good on his promise and sent Ordinary Eternal Machinery over for us to stream, exclusively for your precious little ears! Even if you’re not a fan of the genre, you’ll want to give this one a go. Sure, it has overtly anti-political lyrics and songs of solidarity as you would expect but it also has sensational music composition that goes far beyond the traditional confines of the trusty acoustic guitar that reminded us of the versatile and ageless Paul Simon. Listen to all eighteen incredible tracks, below!
