Introducing new folk punk act: The Old Ironsides

Posted by JerryLowLife on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 11:31 AM (PST)

Coming off the break up of  Those Hated Hearts, guitarist/vocalist Jarett Slionski has started a new folk punk project called The Old Ironsides.  To give you a taste of what to expect, you can download a copy of their first album Losers, Dreamers, and Saints for free.  Give it a listen below.

The album was recorded by Jarett acoustically, but he has found some additional members for the band and they will be playing these same songs as a full electric band going forward.

Introducing: What’s Left Is Yours (Punk Rock)

Posted by vdubowner on Saturday, July 19, 2014 at 6:15 AM (PST)

My latest discovery comes from the Land Down Under and goes by the name of What’s Left Is Yours. The 3-piece punk outfit is currently streaming their debut self-titled EP and offering it as a pay what you want download. They’re playing a catchy-sing-along-Hardcoreish Pop-Punk. Confused? Let me explain: Being the sucker that I am, I got hooked at the 0:25 mark of the highly addictive opening song “Punk Rock Party”. But when I started listening to “Insanity”, the song that followed, I was like “Fuck, am I listening to the same band?!” A completely different sound from the first tune, a much more heavy and less poppy approach that somehow reminded me of Only Crime, and it didn’t stop there…I’ve been brought back to Blink-182′s “Dude Ranch” era as soon as the 3rd song “Mexico” kicked in… Anyway, I’ll stop there and let you guys judge it for yourself. If you like diversity and you feel like being all mixed up in a good way, give a listen to the Aussies in What’s Left Is Yours here.

Favorite track: “Insanity”

If you’re at all a fan of thrashy, technical, melodic punk rock in the vein of A Wilhelm Scream or Propagandhi I’ve got a band you need to add to your RadarClass of 86 hails from Minneapolis and the 5 piece will be releasing their debut full-length “Future On Fire” on August 1st.  I highly recommend you stream the 5 or so songs they have streaming from the album on their bandcamp.

Introducing garage punk act: Dangerous Chickens (members of The Manges)

Posted by JerryLowLife on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at 10:57 AM (PST)

Here’s a new (to us at least) garage punk band coming out of Italy.  Dangerous Chickens consists of Max and Manuel Manges from veteran pop-punk act The Manges.  The band has been going at it for 13 years as a Manges side project, releasing a 7″ here or a 10″ there.  Recently, the guys recorded some of their best songs for a 13 song album called Thirteen, released on Surfin’ Ki Records.

You can stream their new album in its entirety below below.

Introducing Ska-Punk Act: Three Cents Short

Posted by Johnny X on Sunday, June 15, 2014 at 5:39 PM (PST)

Alright ska-punk fans, I’ve got a new band you need to add to your radar!  Grand Rapids, Michigan’s Three Cents Short just came to my attention with their 2 song teaser EP for what looks like an album called “The State Of Things” and I am sufficiently fired up to hear more from these dudes.  It looks like “The State Of Things” isn’t too far out from being released so I highly recommend you give these 2 tracks a listen to legitimately say you knew the band before they got big.

Introducing Garage Punk Act: Old Man Coyote (free EP)

Posted by vdubowner on Saturday, June 14, 2014 at 1:49 PM (PST)

Germany is fucking amazing. I mean, great cars, awesome beers and on top of that, rad punk rock bands. In my opinion, Old Man Coyote is one of those bands. They’re a 4-piece German outfit with a catchy addictive garage/punk’n roll sound. The band is currently streaming and offering as a free download their latest EP entitled “Atomic Tea Time”. As a comparison, I would say that they sound like a freshly blended mix of Gasoline Kills and Bet Your Life.  Give them a listen here (favorite song: “Nuclear Party”).

Introducing New Punk Band: Ted Dibiase And The Million Dollar Punk Band

Posted by Johnny X on Monday, June 2, 2014 at 11:49 AM (PST)

Halfway into the very first song of Ted Dibiase And The Million Dollar Punk Band‘s debut full-length album I knew I was going to enjoy the entire release.  As the name suggests these guys are quite a bit tongue in cheek but their music is decidedly punk rock, washed down with all the piss and vinegar you can handle.  Think World’s Scariest Police Chases, but British.  If you’re not laughing out loud at the lyrics you’ll be slam dancing alone in your bedroom when you listen to the album.  Most likely you’ll be doing both at once.  Anyway, I highly recommend giving these cheeky bastards a listen right here.

Introducing: Oklahoma Car Crash (Folk-Punk)

Posted by vdubowner on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 4:00 PM (PST)

Oklahoma Car Crash, based in Newington Virginia, is a solo folk-punk outfit created by Nat Brown. He’s currently streaming and offering as a pay what you want download his latest EP entitled “I Know Better Now”.  Sometimes mellow folk, sometimes pop-punk, acoustic or full band, lets just say that there’s a great diversity on this 6 track EP.  To give you an idea the opening track “Bad For Anyone” has the alt-country sound of Drag The River, while the last song “Father” makes me think of a “Wringer-PUP” mash-up.

With that being said, If you dig anything that fits in the folk-alt-country-pop-punk category, stream “I Know Better Now” below.

Favorite song: “Father”

Fans of 80s-eque hardcore/thrash-punk a la Minor Threat, Black Flag, etc. should do themselves a favor and check out Chicago punk act Step Right Up.  The band just released their “Brassknuckle Lullabies” EP and its a fun as hell listen.  Stream/download it here (favorite song: “Nic Is A Teen”).

We normally don’t do band spotlights for bands we’ve already written about but this is a special case. While browsing the Promote section on our forum (yes, we have a forum here on Dying Scene) I came across a post about a Belgian skate punk band called Think Ahead and holy shit do they kick ass!! Some of you said they sound like Good Riddance when we posted about a music video they released in March and I’d say that’s a pretty fair description… They’ve got the iconic “Fat” sound at least. Head over to Bandcamp and give their debut EP Driven a listen for yourself.
