AFI working on new album?

California punk/rock legends AFI have posted a cryptic picture of vocalist Davey Havok and guitarist Jade Puget working on songs for what appears to be the band’s next album, which will be their first since 2013′s Burials.

We’ll keep you posted as more details on new music from AFI come to light. The band went back on hiatus last summer, and Davey Havok just recently joined an as-yet-untitled project with the members of No Doubt.



Blaqk Audio stream new song “Anointed”

Blaqk Audio have released a new song titled “Anointed.” The song is the first song off the electronica duo’s still untitled (but may very well be titled Anointed*) third album, and you can hear it below.

*That’s pure speculation and in no way official.

Blaqk Audio’s last album, Bright Black Heaven, was released in September 2012 on Superball Music. No word on when the new album will be released yet.



Music Video: Rise Against – “People Live Here”

Chicago punk veterans Rise Against have premiered a music video for their song ”People Live Here”, taken from their latest album The Black Market, which was released back in July 2014. You can watch the video below.

Last summer, it was reported that Rise Against were signed to Virgin Records, thus ending their seven-year relationship with Interscope Records, who released the band’s last three albums.



Video Archive: AFI rehearsing cover of David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust”

In memory of David Bowie, who passed away yesterday, an AFI fansite shared a video clip of the band rehearsing a cover of the classic “Ziggy Stardust”, which was recorded during soundcheck at a show in New York. You can listen it out below.

AFI released their last album Burials in October 2013 and went on hiatus last summer, but rumors are circulating that the band will return with a new album this year.



Hunter Burgan says AFI will return next year

Last August, we reported that AFI were on back on hiatus, due to members focusing on other projects. However, bassist Hunter Burgan revealed that the band is planning to do something next year, which could involve a new album or just some shows. He states:

“I know that many of you want to know what’s up with AFI. I can’t tell you much at the moment, but we have plans for 2016. Circle that year on your calendars.”

We’ll keep you posted as more details on the future of AFI come to light. The band has gone on hiatus before, most notably back in 2011 when fans believed that they were actually breaking up, which proved untrue. AFI ended their hiatus in 2013, and released Burials, their first album in four years, that October.



Some maniac mashed up Blink 182 with “Hotline Bling”

If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if Drake’s “Hotline Bling” was mashed up with Blink 182′s “Adam’s Song”, well here’s your answer. The song takes the beat from the Drake song, and lays it over the baseline and lyrics of Blink. I’ve gotta be honest, I was a little underwhelmed. Seeing as how gifs of the Drake music video have recently flooded the internet, I was hoping that the music video would have done something crazy; like “Drake playing pickup basketball with a coked out Travis Barker” crazy. Still, as it stands, it’s a neat experiment and is worth checking out below.



Jawbreaker announce vinyl reissue of “Dear You”

To coincide with the 20th anniversary of its release, long-defunct California punk legends Jawbreaker will release a vinyl reissue of their iconic final album Dear You on December 18th, which will be pressed on blue vinyl. You can pre-order a copy of the reissue here.

Jawbreaker broke up in 1996, shortly after the release of Dear You. While no official reunion has been announced, the members of Jawbreaker got together last spring working on a documentary called Don’t Back Down.



Rare Blink 182 video surfaces of ’96 Warped Tour

Just imagine, it’s 1996, you’re in Miami in the summer and you’re sweating, and I mean sweating, and the below knee level denim shorts you’re wearing are soaked. You’re at Warped Tour, which at this point hasn’t really hit the peak of it’s being yet, and Bink-182 is playing in the distance. You grab a seat on the lawn, and check out their set between sets from Limp Bizkit and Guttermouth.

This 30-minute video of Blink-182 playing Warped Tour ’96 in Miami, including songs like “Peggy Sue”, “Carousel” and “M&M’s” and more, will bring you back to that moment. Check it out below



Travis Barker says Blink-182 has recorded five new songs with Matt Skiba

In a recent interviewBlink-182 drummer Travis Barker revealed that the band has recorded five songs with Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio, who replaced the band’s original singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge earlier this year. Travis states:

“Matt’s killing it. He’s fun to play with and write with. We’re just getting started but I think we’ve got like four or five songs right now that I’m really, really happy with. There’s a song called ‘Punk Rock Cliché’ which I love the most right now. It’s about friends of ours and their relationships.”

Blink-182 last self-released an EP entitled Dogs Eating Dogs in December of 2012 after parting ways with Interscope Records. Their last studio album, Neighborhoods, was released in 2011.



Rare Blink-182 set from Warped Tour 1996 emerges

Well this one’s a throwback. Some new footage has just emerged, from the bowels of who-knows-where, showing Blink-182 preforming at Warped Tour, 1996. The trio deliver a set that includes the likes of “M&M’s”, “Peggy Sue”, and “Carousel”. Probably the most interesting thing about the video is just how bare bones the stage arena is, with a blank stage and a relatively tame, medium-sized audience. As a child of the late 90′s, I can barely remember a time before Blink-182 changed the face of pop-punk, so this is definitely a surreal watch. Check it out below.



DS Interview: Frank Turner on “Positive Songs For Negative People,” touring the US with his old mates, and writing a song for a fallen friend

Frank Turner at the Boston Calling Music Festival – photo by Jay Stone for Dying Scene

Frank Turner‘s reputations as both a seemingly tireless live performer and an open and honest songwriter (and interview subject) have been thoroughly vetted on these and other pages for years. As the thirteen pages of “Frank Turner” search results on Dying Scene alone will attest to, the English folk-punk troubadour (assuming that such descriptors are still necessary at this point) has been one of the most talked to, and talked about, members of the scene. (As an editorial side note, we should probably change that bio page on this set, lest people thing Poetry Of The Deed is still his forthcoming album…)

That the songs have become a tad glossier and a little (or at times a lot) more generally accessible to a broader audience is part of the natural order of things, but it hasn’t stopped Turner from staying true to his roots as an emotional storyteller. While much of the material on his latest release, Positive Songs For Negative People (Interscope Records/Xtra Mile Recordings) stays true to the theme spelled out in the album’s title, the closing track, “Song For Josh,” is as gut-wrenching as anything you’ll find in most artists catalogs. The ode to Josh Burdette, longtime employee and public face of Washington, D.C.’s legendary 9:30 Club, was written just after Burdette’s untimely passing two years ago and recorded live at the 9:30.

The Dying Scene Radio fellas caught up with Frank on the eve of his current US tour that’ll find him on the road for the next six-weeks, traversing the States with Skinny Lister and Beans On Toast. You can check out that podcast entry here. Here at the print side of things at Dying Scene HQ, we chatted with Turner about the more emotional moments on Positive Songs For Negative People, about keeping up with a relentless tour schedule and all it entails, and about what happens if he achieves the long-term happiness he seems to pine for in his songs and inevitably turns into Jack Johnson.

It’s a pretty entertaining read, and you can check it out below. While you’re at it, head here to see where you can catch Turner and his comrades on the road.



Hunter Burgan reveals AFI is on hiatus (again)

Although it was revealed earlier this year that a new album was in the works, AFI bassist Hunter Burgan revealed that the band has been on hiatus (again), due to members focusing on other projects, but promises they will return soon. He explains:

“”When’s AFI coming to ______?” “When’s the next AFI record?” “You guys need to stop doing other things and do some AFI!” — Patience, my friends. AFI is an important part of our lives, but we’re all just human beings. We’ve got things to do and people to see. Sometime you have to stop and smell the roses to remember that you live in a neighborhood with a rosebush on the corner. We’ll be back soon, I promise.”

AFI have gone on hiatus before, most notably back in 2011 when fans believed that they were actually breaking up, which proved untrue. The band ended their hiatus in 2013, and released Burials, their first album in four years, that October.



Davey Havok’s mom talks about raising a “rock star”

AFI frontman Davey Havok is lucky enough to have a mom who loves him.  Unlike the rest of us, who might have to endure their moms telling their friends embarrassing stories about that time they threw up all over the rest of their family on a camping trip (oh wait, was that just me?!), Davey Havok has to endure the stories told in a public forum.

Havok’s mom, Penny Marchand, recently talked to The AVA, an online news site based in Mendocino, all about raising a punk rocker.  You can read the full piece here.

AFI last released Burials, their first album in four years, on October 22, 2013 through Republic Records.  Rumor has it that a new album is in the works, and we’ll keep you posted on that as details emerge.
