DS Record Radar: This Week in Punk Vinyl (NOFX, Bad Religion & More)

Greetings, fellow degenerates! Welcome to the latest installment of the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us! This is a weekly column where we cover all things punk rock vinyl; new releases, reissues… you name it, we got it. So kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time. Let’s get into it!

NOFX makes yet another appearance on the Record Radar, this week with two releases! Up first is their upcoming record Double Album, which is now available to pre-order on colored vinyl. Fat Wreck has the LP (along with a shitload of bundles) available on their webstore. Europeans can grab it here, and our Australian friends can buy it here. Check out the album’s latest single “Punk Rock Cliché” below.

The other NOFX record making an appearance in this week’s column is a brand new EU-exclusive color variant (see the picture) of the almighty Punk in Drublic. Go here to get your hands on this one.

Next up is Bad Religion with a new pressing of 2004’s The Empire Strikes First. This red and black marbled LP is a Newbury Comics exclusive, limited to 600 copies. Grab it here.

Also from Newbury Comics: a new pressing of Flogging Molly‘s Drunken Lullabies, limited to 500 copies on “clear with yellow and purple splatter” colored vinyl. Get your copy here.

In addition to recording a new album, Frenzal Rhomb recently announced 2003’s Sans Souci would be released on wax for the first time. If the “Russel Crowe Shit Brown” colored vinyl didn’t do it for you, they’ve revealed additional variant! The LP is available to pre-order on “Ballchef Blood Red” colored vinyl here.

Another recently-announced reissue to get a new color variant is Less Than Jake’s ever-divisive In With the Out Crowd. In addition to the purple LP limited to 1,000 copies, LTJ now has a blue variant on their webstore. It’s limited to 500 copies and they want… $40 for it.

Revelation Records has an exclusive color variant of the upcoming LP from Lenny Lashley’s Gang of One. This pressing of Five Great Egrets on yellow vinyl is limited to 100 copies. Check out the first single “Heart of Stone” below, and grab the record here.

The Dickies have announced a new 7″ with some old-ass (previously unreleased) songs. “Blink 183” was supposedly recorded for a Fat Wreck Chords compilation but didn’t make the cut, and “Clean Money” is a b-side from their 2001 album All This And Puppet Stew. These are good songs (listen below for yourself), but $16 for a two-track 7″ is insane. If you can stomach the asking price, feel free to buy it here.

The 1991 debut album from French melodic punk veterans Burning Heads is getting a 30th Anniversary reissue on Radiation Records. If you’re a fan of that fast, melodic 90’s Epifat sound, I highly recommend checking these guys out (they were briefly on Epitaph btw). Check out my favorite track below, and go here to get a copy of this great record.

Spanish Love Songs‘ 2018 LP Schmaltz is back in print on a few new color variants, limited to 250 copies each. Grab your copy here. A few colors have already sold out, so you’ll want to act fast.

Citizen‘s Youth has been reissued on “highlighter yellow” colored vinyl. Head over to their Bandcamp page to grab this one.

Today’s the day! Now available to order (and shipping immediately) are three brand new reissues from MxPx. After being out of print since the turn of the century, Life in GeneralSlowly Going the Way of the Buffalo, and The Ever Passing Moment are back on wax. Head over to the band’s webstore to get a piece of the action.


We here at Dying Scene are all about trying new things, so this week I’m challenging you, loyal reader, to listen to something new! This week’s Record of the Week comes from a band featured on our recent “Ten Underrated Punk Bands That Should Be On Your Radar” column. If you like blazing fast skate punk in the vein of Belvedere and Mute, you’ll wanna check out Quebec City’s Fullcount and their 2018 LP Part of the Game. Give it a listen below, and grab that beautiful colored wax here.

And 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, 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. See ya next week!
