The P-Funk of Street Punk is back! New London, Connecticut’s premiere ska/funk act, The Hempsteadys are about to release their sophomore LP Seance! Seance! and they want your help! In true DIY fashion, the eleven man troupe (if we’re counting drummer, Matt Covey as a man) has started a Kickstarter campaign to get the album released to the masses on good ole vinyl. We’re considering taking out a loan for a house in Southeastern Connecticut just so we can pledge $100 to have Chef Jon Logan come cook us some ramen! If you can’t afford a mortgage, or the $100 for that matter, head over and check out the other less ridiculous options they have for donating to the cause. These are extremely hardworking guys, making incredibly important music and you’re lucky enough to have a chance to be a part of it! You won’t regret it. Trust us, this one has Album of the Year contender written all over it. To prove our point, we’re premiering the smooth af, debut single “Classic Cars”. Check it out below!

The Hempstedays last released the 2015 fantastic rock ska-pera El Amor de los Muertos.

DS Exclusive: 7 Minute Martians (Pop Punk) Premieres Track From Upcoming Album

Later this week, Cincinnati-based pop punks, 7 Minute Martians will be releasing their debut album, Curious. To get you stoked, the boys sent over the third single from the forthcoming freshman offering (due out 3/15) exclusively for Dying Scene reader!  The track, “Smoked Out” is a melodic, lyrically-emotional, yet upbeat track with tight, Blink-182-esque harmonies. When asked about the new single, guitarist/vocalist Wil Viars told us, “This is a song about decaying love and one of my favorites off of the record. I like the metaphor of comparing a relationship to being in a burning building and a high-speed car chase in the chorus. The third verse will always hit me hard, as it’s about my mother’s suicide.” Check it out below!

DS Exclusive: At Face Value Premieres Video for “Cinderella” From Upcoming EP

Baltimore, Maryland’s At Face Value (formally just Face Value) has a new album coming out later this Spring and to get you hooked, they sent over the debut music video from the upcoming EP Ivy & Echo. When we asked the lads about the video for the song, bassist Grayson Ross told us “’Cinderella’ was our first jab at writing a lighthearted party song. We came to a consensus that most of our songs are pretty sad or angry, so we wanted to mix it up. In the past, any attempt at writing a ‘merry’ song, seemed so cheese-ball. So, I started with the line ‘Tonight I’ll be, out back kicking it with old friends, listening to every song you can’t stand’. From there it formed into this loose story about getting over a negative situation through friendship. The name ‘Cinderella’ is an inside joke because I kept confusing our interim song title, ‘Skippity-BAM-BAM’ with ‘Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo’, which is how we got to ‘Cinderella’. We wanted a sort of Cinderella story with the video. We had a parkour gym location with Walmart animal mask, and just combined these in a cauldron with a hint of “The Wiggles” and what came out was this crazy, wonky, fast video.” Check it out below!

DS Exclusive: Dead Neck (UK) Premieres New Single “Die Tryin” From Upcoming Split With ActionMen

UK punks Dead Neck have announced a new split called Defections which will also feature Italian punks ActionMen. Although a release date has yet to be determined, the lads wanted DS readers get an early taste, so they sent over the debut single “Die Tryin'”. When we asked the lads about the track, they told us “We wrote this song a couple of years ago. It’s been in our set for a while and it’s good to get it out. It’s called ‘Die Tryin” because it’s about making the most out of what’s at our disposal, mutual aid and focusing my life on something other than trying to be rich. We’re currently on our way to start a tour of Japan with the world’s prettiest punk band ActionMen and are cacking our pants with excitement.” So, if you’re in the path of said tour (and don’t mind the smell of soiled pants) head on out and support the scene. Until then, stream the debut single, below, and avoid the odor all together!
