Strike Again is a new skate punk 4-piece based out of Tokyo, Japan. The band formed in 2013, and they have since released three EPs titled Blue, Red, and Green – look at the covers and you’ll understand why. While the music’s not breaking any new ground, the songs are melodic, fast paced, and energetic.

If you wanna check ‘em out, you can give all three EPs a listen and check out the new music video for their song “Shout To The World” below.

New Band Alert: Wolf Bites Boy (street punk) full EP stream – Recommended

Posted by vdubowner on Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 2:14 PM (PST)

Remember this name: Wolf Bites Boy. It’s a name you’ll likely hear a lot more of in the future. The UK 3-piece punk band was formed earlier this year and has so far released an EP entitled “Say Something”, music videos for “Stevie Boy” and a new song “Fighting On” plus a stream of another new track entitled “Rise Again”. Let’s just say that they’re just not wasting any time. Think of an aggressive street punk/Oi!, blended with the vintage hardcore sound from the late 70′s early 80′s. Anyway I’ll stop there and let you guys judge it for yourself.

Stream their debut EP, the new track “Rise Again” and check out their latest music videos below.

Introducing Philadelphia Ska-Punk act: Behind Deadlines (Free EP Download)

Posted by vdubowner on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at 3:34 PM (PST)

The first time I heard the music of Philly ska-punks Behind Deadlines, I was unfortunately stuck in my car during a never ending trafic jam. Not the best place for skanking but their pop-infused ska-punk anthems definitely made the drive more enjoyable! If you like horns and sing-along choruses (or Less Than Jake) you’ll want to check out the band’s debut EP entitled “Good Bye Drake City”, which you can stream below. If you like it, snag a free download or consider throwing in a fews bucks in support!

Introducting New Nerd Punk Act: Thundering Asteroids! (free EP download)

Posted by Johnny X on Thursday, October 23, 2014 at 3:43 PM (PST)

I’m stealing this from the band’s own Facebook, but I thought it did a great job of describing Thundering Asteroids‘ overall aesthetic:  “This female-fronted cadre of melodic cacophony remembers when punk was punk, games were 8-bit, and skateboarding wasn’t considered a sport.”  Fun, nerdy and definitely punk rock, the band’s debut EP “The Nerd Punk Guide To The Galaxy” is 100% worth listening to below.  And if you dig it you can download it for free on bandcamp.

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.

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.
