Introducing New Punk Act: Splitfist (free EP download)

Posted by Johnny X on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at 8:49 AM (PST)

Here’s a new punk act for you to add to your radar.  Splitfist hails from Milton, Ontario and the fivesome play a an aggressive brand of punk rock that calls to mind the vocals of The Flatliners’ Chris Cresswell against a slightly more pop-punky backdrop.  The group’s debut 2 song EP “Knuckle Dragger” is catchy as hell and if its any indication of what’s to come from these guys in the future I think we’re going to be hearing a lot more of these guys.  But don’t take my word for it, stream their new EP here where you can also download it for free.

Introducing: Skatepunk act Hell & Back (Full album stream + music video)

Posted by Bizarro Dustin on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 11:44 AM (PST)

To call German punk act Hell & Back a “new” band would not really be an accurate description seeing as how they’ve been around since at least 2011 (an assumption based on both their Facebook page and their appropriately titled “2011 demo”). However, we here at DyingScene just came across them and we think it’s only fair to share them with you, too. If you like your punk rock melodic and easy to skate around to (and let’s not kid anyone here, of course you like that), you might want to give Hell & Back a listen.

They released their debut album, Heartattack, this past March and are streaming the whole thing online. In the chance that you’re pressed for time (we know you’re not, but we’ll let it slide), the band has also released a karaoke-styled music video for their song “Reverse Psychology”, which comes off Heartattack.

You can find both the album and the music video below.

Posted by vdubowner on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at 8:14 AM (PST)

Fans of 90′s punk rock, hold on tight…

Different Homes are a punk rock quartet from The Netherlands and they have just released their debut EP entitled “Out In The Open”. They’re playing a politically inspired 90′s style punk rock and man, it is well worth a listen. With that being said, if you dig bands such as Bad Religion, Face To Face, Millencolin and Dillinger Four, you might just want to stop whatever you’re doing right now and stream the EP below.

Introducing Female Fronted Punk Act: Uneeda

Posted by vdubowner on Monday, September 15, 2014 at 11:13 AM (PST)

I came across Uneeda while bouncing around on the World-Wide-Web and man i’m glad I found them…They’re a Canadian trash/punk band from St. Johns, Newfoundland, inspired by bands such as NOFX, Lagwagon, Misfits, Slayer and Metallica. They play a speedy riffing and fast-paced drumming metal infused punk rock. The band recently released a music video for a new song entitled “Momentum” which will appear on their upcoming album to come out later this year.

Check out the rad video below.

Back in 2012, Uneeda released a demo EP entitled “Handout”. You can download/stream it on the band’s Bandcamp.

When reading the bio on Travis James & the Acrimonious Assembly of Arsonists I must admit they had me at “the Meat Loaf of punk”.  Perhaps a better comparison could be made to World/Inverno Friendship Society but either way these guys are worth a listen.  The band just put out a new full-length titled “Overdressed & Under Arrest” that any fan of piano and accordion infused anarcho folk punk is going to seriously dig.  If that’s you, or you’re just looking for something a little different, give it a listen below.

Introducing “Cougar” Pop-Punk Act: Alyson’s Anthem

Posted by Johnny X on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 12:50 PM (PST)

I’m a sucker for female fronted pop-punk acts.  I’m not talking the Paramore, radio friendly kind.  I’m talking the whoa-oh filled, three-chord heavy, we’re going to be broke as long as we play this type of music kind.  If you’re with me on that you should check out Alyson’s Anthem.  I’m seriously digging on their debut EP “Cougar Punk EP (vol 1)” and you can stream it here.

Introducing New Punk Act: Go Die (free EP download)

Posted by Johnny X on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 1:03 PM (PST)

Go Die is for punk fans looking for something a little different.  Consisting of only two members the band still manages to churn out pretty dynamic sounding tunes through insightful lyrics and electronic effects.  They sorta remind me of a slightly more lo-fi version of Intro5pect meets early era Dwarves.  Anyway, the duo released an album called “Nail House Rock” somewhat recently and you can stream and/or download it for free on their bandcamp.  Check ‘em out!

Introducing UK Pop-Punk Act: Sunken Monkey

Posted by vdubowner on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at 9:15 AM (PST)

First let’s start by saying that these guys from the UK aren’t new to the punk rock scene. In fact, Sunken Monkey last released their self titled debut album back in 2009, and the band’s actually gearing up to release a new record entitled “Party Scars” this October through Bumface Records. They take their influences from bands like NOFX, The Menzingers, Rise Against and Four Year Strong.

If this sounds good to you, stream the song entitled “This Town’s Too Big (For The Both Of Us)” off Sunken Monkey’s upcoming album and check out the official music video below.

Introducing new skacore act: Wasted Daze (full album stream)

Posted by JerryLowLife on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 12:06 PM (PST)

According to their Facebook page, UK skacore/hardcore/punk act Wasted Daze have been around since 1998, and if that’s the case, I feel like we all have been missing out.  Listening to their newest album Morningcide, I immediately heard the skacore influences of Choking Victim and other related bands, but diving further into the album proved that the 2 piece incorporates many more influences into their approach to this high octane style of punk music.  Doses of 90′s skate punk as well as old school pop punk and hardcore also make it’s way into the albums 11 tracks, and they do it all very well.

Anyway, I’ll let you guys judge for yourself.  You can stream Morningcide in its entirety below.
