Dying Scene Record Radar: New punk vinyl releases & reissues (new NOFX, Bad Religion, The Vandals, Dropkick Murphys & more)

Whaddup, fuckers! Thank you for joining us for this week’s edition of the Dying Scene Record Radar, where we cover all things new in the world of punk rock vinyl. Kick off your shoes and make yourself at home, because it’s time to run through this week’s releases. I hope you’re feeling spendy, because there’s a lot of good stuff that might find its way into your record collection. Let’s get into it!

Bad Religion continues to reissue their back catalog. The latest is a 40th Anniversary reissue of How Could Hell Be Any Worse?. Once again, there are a billion variants, with regional and retailer exclusivity. Links to where you can buy all of these can be found here.

The Vandals have re-pressed their debut LP When In Rome (Do As The Vandals) on pink and black splatter vinyl. Head over to their Bandcamp page to grab it.

Punk Rock Radar and Cat’s Claw Records are releasing a Split LP from two great German pop-punk bands Lookit, Martians! and The Cheap Pops. There are two very creatively named color variants, each limited to 100 copies. If you enjoy 90’s pop-punk even half as much as I do, this shit’s right up your alley. Check out a few tracks below, and pre-order here (US) or here (EU).

Celtic punk veterans The Real McKenzies have announced a new covers album. Songs of the Highlands, Songs of the Sea is due out in November on Fat Wreck Chords. Check out their cover of “Scotland the Brave” below. Pre-order the record here (US), here (CA), here (EU), or heeeeeeere (AUS).

Speaking of Celitc punk, Newbury Comics has a new exclusive pressing of the Dropkick MurphysThe Gang’s All Here. This one’s limited to 500 copies on blue vinyl. Grab it here.

Earache Records has announced a new crowdfunding project called Earache on Demand. Every month they will be announcing a few new releases, each with its own funding goal. If enough people pre-order and the goal is met, the release gets pressed. If the goal is not met, you get your money back. Very cool! My favorite record from their first round is Municipal Waste‘s Hazardous Mutation. This has been out of print since 2005. Head over here to pre-order and help make this reissue a reality.

Next up is the much-anticipated new album from NOFX. It’s the follow-up to Single Album, which was released back in February. This one is called…you guessed it…Double Album! The lead single is “Darby Crashing Your Party” and it’s full of the kind of self-deprecation and wordplay you’ve come to know and love from Fat Mike. The video is below and vinyl pre-orders through Fat Wreck Chords are here.

Last but not least, Big D and the Kids Table have announced a 15th anniversary edition of their 2007 SideOneDummy debut Strictly Rude. The updated edition comes with five previously-unreleased tracks. It’s also a double LP with one record coming in an exclusive color. Oh, and there’s updated artwork and a poster. Pre-orders are available here, and it looks like it’ll ship in December 2022. Tell your mom to add it to your Christmas list!

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!
