Greetings, and welcome to the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us! This is the weekly* column where we cover all things punk rock vinyl; new releases, reissues… you name it, we’ve probably got it. Kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time and this week’s Record Radar is, once again, fucking yuuuuuuge. Let’s get into it!

Check out the video edition of this week’s Record Radar, presented by our friends at Punk Rock Radar:

Two Pulley EPs are back in print, thanks to SBÄM and Double Helix Records. Time-Insensitive Material and The Long and Short of It are being reissued, each limited to 300 copies on three different color variants. You may recall these were just repackaged as part of the Encore 2xLP a few years ago, but this is the first time in over a decade either of these has been reissued as a standalone release. If you’re in the US, you can grab your copies here; if you’re in Europe, you’ll want to go here. These should start shipping in late April.

Another Record Radar, another sold out Fat Wreck release. Perhaps I should start doing those one-off Record Radar posts if a big release is announced in the middle of the week? Anyway! It’s NOFX. It’s The Decline. It’s the 25th Anniversary reissue. It’s sold out. Womp womp.

30footfall! They’ve got a new EP coming out later this month on People of Punk Rock Records. It’s their first new record in like a bagillion years! The 12″ EP titled National Treasure …And Other LaForgeries features 6 songs that were in the works before 30footfall guitarist Chris Laforge unfortunately passed in 2017. Pre-order the record here.

People of Punk Rock Records have a few more awesome new releases you should add to your cart while you’re grabbing that 30footfall record. Exhibit A: Montreal skate punk band Down Memory Lane‘s new Breathing Space LP. If you’re a fan of all things fast, melodic & awesome, don’t sleep on this. Shit’s a banger. Buy the record and while yer at it buy their last one, too.

Exhibit B: Hurry Up and Wait, the new album from Toronto melodic punk band Wasting Time. This one’s due out on April 12th and (spoiler alert) your friends at Dying Scene are exclusively premiering the album’s lead single tomorrow! Yes, that’s right. 9am eastern standard time, be there or be square. Also, pre-order the record!

Last week (I guess it was two weeks ago technically), I told you about a bunch of Aquabats reissues. Well there’s more Aquabats on tap this week because they announced their new album Finally!. Pre-orders are available here. You can get the double LP for $39.99, or if you’re a fucking idiot you can pay $119.99 for an autographed copy. LMAO

The Adolescents have a new 2xLP live record due out May 17th on Concrete Jungle Records. As its title suggests, The Rob Ritter Tapes – Live At Starwood 1980/1981 is a collection of recently unearthed recordings from Adolescents shows at Hollywood’s Starwood Nightclub in the early 80’s. For 32 euros* (plus value-added tax and shipping), you get two – count ’em, two – 180g LPs on red and blue wax AND two CDs! It’s an unbeatable value, folks. Pre-order the record here.

Let’s talk some ska, shall we? Albany three piece Girth Conrol‘s new record Life’s Too Short For Girth Control is the first of five(!) ska records I’m boutta tell you about. These guys are awesome, this record’s awesome. It’s out now. You should listen to it. You should buy it.

Less Than Jake and Bowling For Soup just toured the UK together and released a 7″ where they cover one of each other’s songs. LTJ does “High School Never Ends”, BFS does “The Science of Selling Yourself Short”. SBAM Records has this up for pre-order, only on their EU store for some reason. People of Punk Rock Records has some copies on their store for the North American crowd. Limited to 125 copies on Pink Splatter & 125 copies on Clear Splatter colored wax.

22 years after its original release Mustard Plug‘s Yellow #5 is finally getting a reissue. There are two variants for this one; the Smartpunk Exclusive Purple w/ Yellow & White Splatter is limited to 200 hand numbered copies, and Hopeless Records doesn’t say how many copies they pressed of the White w/ Purple & Green Splatter variant. Links to all the places you can buy are here.

Orange County (California, not Florida) ska band Half Past Two has signed to Bad Time Records for the release of their new album Talk is Killing Me, which is due out on April 19th. Check out the lead single below and pre-order the record here.

And last up in the ska segment of this week’s Record Radar we have The Kilograms, a new band with an all star lineup including Joe Gittleman of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Sammy Kay, former Bouncing Souls Drummer Michael Mcdermott & J Duckworth from Newport Secret Six. The first pressing of their self-titled debut EP sold out almost instantly a few weeks ago, but the good news is Asbestos Records has already issued a second pressing of 300 copies on “Olive Drab” colored vinyl. Listen to the EP below and grab the 12″ here.

Bayside has a new album coming out on May 10th. It’s called There Are Worse Things Than Being Alive and so far three variants have been announced. The Smartpunk Exclusive clear(?) variant was limited to 300 copies and is already sold out, the splatter variant is sold out on Hopeless Records‘ US store but is still in stock on the EU store, and the translucent purple retail variant is in stock everywhere.

TSOL‘s new album A-Side Graffiti is out now on Kitten Robot Records. It features a mix of new original songs and covers. Check out my favorite song off the record below and get it on “colored vinyl” here (they don’t specify the color on the label’s store, but Rough Trade has it listed as “Red/White/Blue Blended”).

A few weeks ago we premiered the first of many tracks from our friends at Coffin Curse Records‘ upcoming NOFX tribute album I Heard They Broke Up!!. Since then, the 3xLP comp featuring 62(!) NOFX covers went up for pre-order and that shit is already soul doubt! If you missed out that sucks, but you can still get it on CD and hey, maybe there will be a 2nd pressing? Perchance.

Speaking of awesome shit we’ve done premieres for recently, let’s talk about Middle-Out! These guys are from Detroit and they kick fuckin’ ass. They’ve got a new record coming May 24th on Punkerton Records and it, too, is going to kick fuckin’ ass. Check out the latest single below and pre-order the LP on one of five variants (or just buy all five, why not?) by clicking this hyperlink.

The friendly people at Thousand Islands Records are flexing their might with a new label sampler comp! The Sauce Vol. 1 features 17 tracks from great bands like Belvedere, Chaser (they’ve got a new album on the way, too – that shit’s gonna be awesome), Straightline, Counterpunch & more. You can get it on green and/or purple colored wax here.

28 years after its original release on compact disc (otherwise known as CD by those not in the trade), Aussie punk veterans Nancy Vandal‘s 1996 album The Debriefing Room is getting its first-ever vinyl release thanks to Endless Detention Records. Limited to 200 copies on “Oh Yes, You’re Beautiful Splatter” (Purple w/ Green Splatter) and 50 copies on “Gladiator Green” (Translucent Green) colored vinyl. These are selling fast; get your copy here. Fun fact: Jay from Frenzal Rhomb was in the band and is on this record. It’s a great record!

Ceremony’s Rohnert Park LP gets its 10th pressing from Bridge Nine Records, with four new color variants. These are what they are, how many there are, and where you can get them:

– Red/White/Blue vinyl (300 copies, only available at Hollywood Palladium show on 2/29/24)
– Orange vinyl (300, Hard Times)
– Yellow vinyl (500, Revelation Records)
– Pink vinyl (1000, Bridge Nine store)

Cock Sparrer announced their new album Hand on Heart will be released on April 5th. Pirates Press Records (US) has some exclusive color variants up on their store, some of which have already sold out. Cherry Red Records (UK) has an exclusive variant of their own on red & black splatter, which also has alternate cover art – you can get that right here. Both labels have a picture disc as well, but why would you want that?

And last up this week, keeping it in the UK, we’ve got Snuff! Their new album Off on the Charabanc is due out March 22nd (or maybe it’s April 5th, I’m seeing both dates listed in different places) on SBAM Records. Two variants will be available to pre-order from the band’s webstore very soon – Red/Black and Grey/Black Marble. Three tracks are already streaming on YouTube as well, though I haven’t seen any mention of it on the band/label’s social media:

To wrap things up, I wanna give a quick shoutout to Planet Retro Records, a local record store I’d probably frequent if I wasn’t too fucking lazy to make the 30 minute intra-county pilgrimage from Clearwater to St. Petersburg, Florida. I stopped in this weekend and they’ve got all kinds of awesome shit – the “punk section” takes up half the store! I picked up one of my favorite Honest Don’s Records releases, Big In Japan’s Destroy the New Rock, for $9! Also Dead To Me’s Moscow Penny Ante, another record I’d been hunting for a while, for $18! I also scored a copy of Glue Gun’s The Scene is Not for Sale, an “import” (wink wink nudge nudge) copy of AFI’s Crash Love, and records from some St. Pete locals in No Loves and Awkward Age. If you find yourself in Pinellas County and you’re a punk record collector, be sure to hit up Planet Retro.

Well, that’s all, folks. Another Record Radar in the books. As always, thank you for tuning in. If there’s anything we missed (highly likely), or if you want to let everyone know about a new/upcoming vinyl release you’re excited about, leave us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram, and we’ll look into it. Enjoy your weekend, and don’t blow too much money on spinny discs (or do, I’m not your father). Until next time…
