Cory Branan (feat Dave Hause) streams politically charged ‘Another Nightmare In America’

I’d usually say, anything Dave Hause touches is pure gold, but that would seriously sell Cory Branan short on this one. The Richmond, Virginia-based singer/songwriter extraordinaire took on social injustice and police brutality beautifully in his new song ‘Another Nightmare In America‘ whilst The Loved Ones frontman came in more to give the track some extra layers.

‘Another Nightmare In America’ is one of the singles from Branan’s upcoming album ‘ADIOS’. You can give it a spin here.



Al Scorch releases weirdest music video for the best folk-punk song you’ll hear all year “Everybody Out”

I must admit I hadn’t heard of Chicago bred, “intrepid songwriter and lightning-fingered banjoist/guitarist” Al Scorch until a press release for his new music video hit the DS inbox. Dutifully clicking play despite the off-putting press photo that accompanied the announcement, I stumbled on to what I’m sure will be my favorite folk-punk song discovery of the entire year.

“Everybody Out” is a cut from Scorch’s most recent album “Circle Round The Signs” released last May on Bloodshot Records, and I have no idea what is going on in its freakishly bizarre music video but I don’t care. The song is f’ing awesome and I just bought the entire album sight unseen because of it.

Scorch says this about the video:

“Coming from a community of punks, queers, puppeteers, and activists, I’ve never felt totally comfortable in the folk/country/Americana realm. Folks have been really welcoming, though, and while some of the audiences — and other musicians for that matter — might have more traditional views and lifestyles, I’ve met a lot of people who are willing to consider and question and have conversations. As artists, we can’t be afraid to challenge people right now; it’s more important than ever.”

Check out the music video for “Everybody Out” below. When its done I suggest just listening to the song one more time without the video. If you don’t fall in love with it, you’re not a fan of any banjo infused folk-punk.



New Music: Cory Branan streams new track “Imogene” from upcoming album “Adios”

Assuming we haven’t been swallowed up by the fiery hellscape of damnation by the first week of April, we’ll have a new Cory Branan album to look forward to!

It’s called Adios, and it’s billed as “Cory’s death album.” If you saw him out on the road with the likes of Chuck Ragan or Brian Fallon or Lucero last year, you got a taste of what’s to come by way of a song called “The Vow,” penned as an ode to his late father. It’s heart-breaking but razor-sharp, which is pretty much Branan’s wheelhouse.

Adios is due out April 7th on Branan’s longtime label home, Bloodshot Records. Pre-orders of the album, including limited-edition pink vinyl (which yours truly just did — apropos on a day like today) are available here. In the meantime, you can stream the album’s lead single, “Imogene,” right here, and check out Branan’s upcoming tour dates here. Stay tuned for more on Adios in the coming months.

Branan’s last album, “The No Hit Wonder,” was released back in 2014 on Bloodshot Records,

Riot Fest announces guests for Speakers’ Stage

Last year, Riot Fest unveiled a Speakers’ Stage, where musicians and activists engage in a panel discussion in front of the audience.  Due to the success of last year’s lineup, which included members of Russian female punk group Pussy Riot, Riot Fest is bringing back the Speakers’ Stage.

This year’s speakers will be split over 2 days, with the September 12th event featuring Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin of the “West Memphis Three.”  In a panel moderated by Henry Rollins,  they will discuss their history and the way music activism contributed to their release after 18 years in prison, after being wrongly accused of the murders of three young boys in 1993.  On September 13th, the event will feature Joe Principe (Rise Against), Jeff Pezatti (Naked Raygun,), Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms), Nan Warshaw (founder, Bloodshot Records), Daryl Wilson (The Bollweevils) and Dem Hopkins (owner of the legendary Club Oz).

You can find all the Riot Fest info that Dying Scene has to offer right here.
