Chaser (DS Records) premiere lyric video for “The Show” off upcoming album “Sound The Sirens”

Southern California skate-punk act Chaser have premiered a lyric video for a brand new track off their upcoming release on Dying Scene Records. “The Show” is their homage to the annual tradition of punk rock festival pilgrimage. Doesn’t matter if your festival of choice is PRB, Fest, Punk In Drublic, or Punk Rock Holiday, you’re going to relate to this song. The band had this to say about the inspiration behind the tune:

“The Show” pays tribute to some of our favorite moments growing up. The sun is shining, the music is blasting and we’re shoulder to shoulder with thousands of people singing along. Warped Tour started it all for us, and luckily, the rise of these modern day festivals has filled the void. We’re all grown up now, and expected to take it easy, but you can’t take the punk rock out of the boy. So you’ll still find us crowd surfing, pitting, stage diving, and singing every word. “And we will stay forever this way!”

Sing along to “The Show” over at punknews.

The track will appear on Chaser’s upcoming album “Sound The Sirens” due out digitally through Dying Scene Records (pre-order) and physically through Effervescence Records (pre-order) on July 20th.



Chaser (skate-punk) signs to Dying Scene Records for release of new album “Sound The Sirens”, stream first single

Southern California punk act Chaser were one of the bands that inspired me to start Dying Scene eight years ago. I couldn’t understand why they weren’t on Fat, or being written about on Punknews, so I launched a site to get deserving bands like them more exposure. But that’s not why I’ve signed them today to Dying Scene Records. Personal relationships or past releases, no matter how good they are, aren’t enough get on DS Records. It’s simpler than that. I have to hear an album before I’ll agree to release it, and I have to legitimately love the album – like top 5 releases of the year love them. By the second listen of “Sound The Sirens” I was sold. 

On July 20th Dying Scene Records will be digitally releasing the band’s 4th full-length album, “Sound The Sirens,” while the folks at Effervescence Records are handling vinyl. To get you appropriately stoked check out the album’s first single “Bonfire” below.

 

While you listen here’s a fun tidbit from the band about the recording of the acoustic intro to the track:

“So while our engineer/producer, Ian Petersen, was editing one of our songs, we were standing in the parking lot jamming “Bonfire” on acoustic guitar and singing the chorus together as a band. Ian came outside and said, “That sounds awesome. What are you guys playing?” So he pulled us into the studio, and we tracked the intro to “Bonfire” with all 4 band members singing the chorus, and Bill playing guitar at the same time. We recorded it as one take, and it sounded so good and natural that we kept it!”

Pre-orders are up and running for this album. Snag a digital copy here and vinyl/CD/Bundles here.

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!
