A Week In Punk: Last Week’s Top Stories Recapped (1/20/13)

A Week In Punk: Last Week’s Top Stories Recapped (1/20/13)

As shameful as it is some of you readers don’t actually check Dying Scene every hour of every day.  For you slackers we’ve put together a list of last week’s biggest stories to help you stay in the loop and maintain your punk cred.  You’re welcome.

1. Bad Religion streamed their new album, True North, a week early. It’s like early (or late?) Christmas. As an added bonus, the band is set to tour with young up-and-comers, Against Me! and Polar Bear Club. Ever heard of them?  We also published a review on the album.

2. Trusty DS writer Carson Winter told everyone to stop downloading music illegally. Agree or disagree? Discuss.

3. NOFX’s Fat Mike sat down for an episode of Maximum Rocknroll to play some of his favorite songs. Fat Mike: still relevant after all these years.

4. Filter Magazine release their Descendents tribute album. The best part about Milo Turns Fifty? It’s free!

5. Authority Zero posted a new studio update for upcoming album, The Tipping Point.

6. It’s almost time for Punk Rock Bowling, you guys! Slot machines, punk rock, bowling and dry heat guarantee a good time. Did we mention (sort of) Black Flag is playing?

7. Cockney Rejects will kick off a US tour with Youth Brigade on Valentine’s Day. Oi! Oi! Oi! How romantic.

8. Robots are now capable of playing instruments and are playing Motorhead songs. Run for your lives. Just kidding. But, Compressorhead did release a video for their Ace Of Spades cover, featuring some cool robots.

9.We streamed Edge: Perspectives on drug free culture. Before you ask, yes, Ian MacKaye is in it.

10. The UK Download Festival has begun announcing bands. Slipknot and KoRn are both playing. Brace yourselves.

This week on Sacred Cow Saturday: We pick apart the Misfits’ standard, Walk Among Us.

Those were just the most read stories from last week, but there were plenty more stories written.  Let us know what what you loved, what you hated and what your personal favorite story was in the comments.
