Slam Dunk 2019 Reveals Clash-Proof Stages

In a first for the UK punk / emo / metalcore all-dayer, Slam Dunk 2019 has announced that some stages will alternate their programming, becoming clash-proof. This year, neither the Jagermeister Stage or Impericon stage will clash, making sure fans of hardcore and metalcore will be able to catch both stage lineups throughout the day. In addition, The Dickies Stage and The Marshall Stage will not clash with each other either.

This means fans of the heavier end of the spectrum will be able to catch Atreyu, Glassjaw, Silverstein, Gallows, The Bronx and Cancer Bats, amongst others, without fear of missing out.  Similarly, fans of the more emo and indie spirited acts can see the likes of The Menzingers, Touche Amore, The Get Up Kids, Saves The Day, Plain White T’s, Real Friends, Seaway, Trophy Eyes and more without needing to choose between stages.

The one day event, with dates in the North and South of England, is rounded out with Fat Mike’s Punk in Drublic stage (NOFX, Bad Religion, Less Than Jake, Millencolin, Lag Wagon and more), Monster Energy stage (All Time Low, New Found Glory, Neck Deep, Boston Manor and more) along with 3 other stages showcasing up and coming and and acoustic artists.

DS Staff Picks: Carson Winter’s Top Albums of 2017

For us list-making, taste-making, coffee-drinking, taco-devouring, unpaid-punk-curators— end of year lists are a time to shine. We spend a lot of time listening to the hottest, freshest tracks and occasionally liking some of them too. 2017 was no exception, and for me actually, I thought it was one of the better years in recent punk history. Old bands I loved released new material, I found new bands I’d never heard, bands I thought I didn’t like released music that I did. It was a varied, interesting, and eclectic year for punk rock. And at the same time: almost too varied, interesting, and eclectic. Unfortunately, being spoiled for choice goes hand in hand with writing articles that shouldn’t take that long to write. Oh well, as said by a million tattoos and a guy named Vonnegut, “So it goes.”

Without further ado, here are my top ten picks for the best punk of 2017.



DS Staff Picks – Bizarro Dustin’s Top Albums of 2017

2017 was not a great year for me. Between looming mental health issues, broken hearts (both breaking someone else’s and having mine torn), and a handful of failed attempts at restarting my life, I don’t even have to mention the state of the world to get into how bleak things were… I even stopped regularly contributing to Dying Scene this year! But I still got invited to share my 10 favorite records and since music is one of the things that helped me get through this year, here I am.

In years past I’ve gone all out when sharing my favorite albums: bringing attention to those that might not have gotten as much notice as the heavy hitting names in the scene, or giving each album a number one spot in their own category. This year I’m keeping it simple: my 10 favorite albums by artists that we cover at Dying Scene. You can check it out below.



DS Photo Gallery: Riot Fest Chicago – Day 3 (Jawbreaker, Hot Water Music, The Flatliners, The Menzingers and more)

The weekend of September 15-17 saw the annual return of Riot Fest. Riot Fest 2017 was held for the 12th consecutive year in Chicago and for the third consecutive year in Douglas Park. Once again, Riot Fest saw an eclectic crowd turn out, including multiple generations of families. You can check out our coverage of day one here and our shots from day two here, but we, like Riot Fest organizers this year, certainly saved the best for last. 

While last year’s Riot Fest included a Danzig-led Misfits reunion that was noteworthy in its own right, this year’s headline reunion band felt somewhat bigger and more important in a lot of ways. There’s a giant faction of the punk rock scene that’s effectively been the House That Jawbreaker built, and that was certainly reflected in this particular day’s lineup. There’s a direct sonic and stylistic connection from newly-reformed trio, playing only their third show in over two decades, to bands like Hot Water Music to more recent torch-bearers like The Flatliners and The Menzingers. All of the above were on display on a hot and sweaty third-and-final day of Riot Fest 2017, marking a notable past, present and future that seemed to find each generation drawing inspiration from the others.

But wait, there was plenty of other punk rock history to go around! GWAR have kept on keeping on following the death of frontmonster Dave Brockie a few years ago, and have been Riot Fest regulars for years. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones made another stop on their Let’s Face It 20-year celebration shows that’ll wind down with this year’s Hometown Throwdown around Christmastime. Pennywise, who will be celebrating their thirtieth birthday as a band next year, played one of the weekend’s best-received sets. Check out our full photo rundown below!
