DS Exclusive: Downway premiere “Wild Ones” off upcoming “Last Chance for More Regrets” LP

Formerly of California-based Sessions Records, Downway (ffo: Goldfinger, Lagwagon) have recently come out of retirement and signed with Thousand Islands Records to release a new album, Last Chance for More Regrets. It drops May 1, and is the band’s first release since their split with Belvedere in 2003.

15 years is a long time to be away from the studio, but all early previews of the new album indicate that Downway, who reformed in 2017 after a lengthy hiatus, haven’t quite lost their touch. Last Chance for More Regrets promises more of the same anthemic 90’s-style melodic skate punk that initially earned them a few stints on the Warped Tour docket, and even a video spot on the historically beloved MTV network, before it was taken over by the Kardashians.

Since the band’s newfound rejuvenation they have toured western Canada as well as Japan, with more Canadian tour dates to look forward to surrounding the release of the upcoming LP. Today, I’m proud to showcase for you all their latest single, “Wild Ones”. If you’re a fan of catchy hooks, poppy harmonies, and energetic palm mute sections to bounce your head to, then this jam is one you may want to consider. You can stream “Wild Ones” as well as view Downway’s fast-approaching tour schedule below. Cheers!

DS Exclusive: A Page Unturned (ffo: Yellowcard, Set Your Goals) premiere new song, “One Light”

Here’s a slow jam for all you starry-eyed young scenesters. A Page Unturned are a talented trio of L.A. up-and-comers featuring Japanese implant, Yoshihiro Imae on guitar and keys, bringing some interesting Reggie and the Full Effect type melodies. He’s come together with bass player/lead vocalist Damon Porras, showcasing in harmony and disposition, and an all-out synchronous Ryan Sebold on drums providing the beat. You can catch them playing shows around southern Cali, or carrying-on their rawkin’ shade of pop punk back home to Japan. They even opened for Unwritten Law last October. (RAD!)

Today, they are self-releasing “One Light”, the band’s second single follow-up to their self-titled debut 3-track EP. (All of which are available here.) This one’s not so hectic, but I dare say the energy is still in it. Give it a listen below. I bet it’ll suck you in. Enjoy!



DS Exclusive: We Found a Map stream “Royal Blue” off upcoming EP, “To the Robot Graveyard”

It’s new music day!! I mean, everyday. We’re punks not brainless Clear Channel amateurs, and today I’m here to wisen you up to a distinct group of so-Cal pop/skate punxx called We Found A Map. (There name has got to be a Goonies refernece, right? It just has to be.)

Earlier this week they streamed the first single, “Zelda is a Girl”, off their upcoming EP, To the Robot Graveyard, on their bandcamp page, which is also where you can stream and pre-order the EP that comes out in full on March 5. I’m happy to say that today I get to release the second single off that record, “Royal Blue”, which speaks largely of the band’s form and musical approach by design with intricate palm-mute patterns, and baroque bass lines that appropriately highlight the honest aspect in character of highly tangible lyricism and a fast-tempo pop punk backbone.

It’s a song about the team that can be seen as a metaphor for the American dream, and how we all chase it in our own varying ways, mostly in horse blinders.

To the Robot Graveyard is releasing on the heels of the band’s 2018 EP, To the Haunted Arcade. (Also available for streaming and download) There’s no telling where the great adventure will take us next. Stream “Royal Blue” below

DS Exclusive: The Blanche Davidians premiere new song, “Copaganda”

Here’s one, “Copaganda” – a new track from a band brought to you first by Dying Scene, The Blanche Davidians. It’s a harmonious skate punk anthem dedicated to those who “protect and serve”.

The band’s last release, “Alex Jonestown Massacre”, made headlines and a lot of headway for a group leaning heavily on the spooky, mysterious side of the occult. “Copaganda” comes out this Thursday, and will be available for streaming on their bandcamp page. Of course, you can check it out a few days early below. (Lucky you!) Their debut EP, Placeholder, will be out March 20.



DS Exclusive: Nadir (ffo: OWTH, Jimmy Eat World) premiere “Doomed from the Start” off debut album, “Collecting Misery”

So, there’s this band I’ve gotten really into lately. They’re called Nadir and they’re from Queens, which is weird because I thought they were from wherever Off With Their Heads is from because their lead singer is in Off with Their Heads, but whatever. They’re really good, and of course, you should know I was gonna say that because I fucking love Off With Their Heads. I saw them (OWTH) at 1919 Hemphill with like two other people in the audience, and it was a straight-edge club, but nobody cared. It was a fun night.

I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on a press copy of Nadir’s debut album, Collecting Misery, and it’s easily my first favorite thing that’s come out this year. (That I know of!)  And I’m absolutely thrilled to show it off to you! Well, the first song anyway, off their first album. So, unless you’re one of the ones in-the-know enough to have snagged the demo, then I proudly present Nadir with “Doomed From the Start”.

Collecting Misery is being self-released by Nadir, and drops Feb. 25. Stream “Doomed From the Start” below.



Guttural Riot release new track, “Take A Break”

Sweet fucking tracks coming at you around 2 or 3 AM, stoned and drunk and wondering if it’s worth it to ingest that last .3 or 4 grams of Christmas mushrooms to ease the pain and suffering… saved for some odd reason. What’s the point in micro-dosing anyway when God gave us these nutrients to be alive?

Guttural Riot is out-and-about in L.A. streaming at you with some new material in the form of “Take a Break”. It’s the first single off their upcoming album, Too Fucked To Die, which will be available everywhere you put your mind to it right around January 25.

These homies are down to party and they’re bringing the trash rock, shit-eating and gutter-punk style, too drunk to fuck, but not too drunk to fuck your mother, taking a break type shit down on Dying Scene tonight with a jazzy ensemble about getting the fuck away from you and your likeness, top speed. Making headway.

Take a(nother) break is damn sure what I wanna do. How do you feel? Stream that track, “Take A Break”, below.



DS Exclusive: Manic Kat Records stream “A Very Merry Punxmas, Volume 1”

Christmas music is dope. Don’t be a cotton-headed ninny-muggins, and get into the spirit… or spirits. The fat man’s coming and all those corporations we’ve been talking shit about are lining their pockets with our Christmas bonuses… but the bag’s full and the reindeer are high. Shotguns are loaded and the rottweiler is asleep by the fire. That poor bastard Elf on the Shelf just joined the “Me Too” movement. Oh yeah, Christmas is here. It’s time to spike the punch bowl.

DS Exclusive: Titans In Time stream Senses Fail cover “The Fire”

Greetings scenesters. Today we are premiering a new track off the upcoming Senses Fail tribute album being released by Pacific Ridge Records, which can be purchased here. This time it’s the title-track off their fourth studio album, The Fire, a song which, you may remember, was previously included on Senses Fail’s Greatest Hits.

The culprits are Titans In Time. They are a Cleveland alternative band, currently in the middle of a twelve-day tour through the American Midwest, who offers a unique take on the track, throwing some of their own influences and imaginative perspective into the mix. The melodies are tight and enthusiastic, with some seriously good musicianship going into tackling the song. Who doesn’t love a good cover? Check out Titans In Time cover “The Fire” by Senses Fail below.



DS Exclusive: Fastfade (ffo: old Blink 182, Lagwagon) stream new album, “Happy If You Aren’t”

STTOOOKKKAAAGGEE!!… Oh, sorry. Is this thing typing? My cat just crossed the keys – a Cheshire cat – and out the front door. No worries, though. This band seems perfectly capable of chasing after it.

Fastfade are a group of well-meaning young F.S.P’s (fast sloppy punks) out of London kicking some cool palm-mutes and starry-eyed riffs, aggressive basslines with big-band breakdowns, and a drummer who, as far as my drummer fetish is concerned, kind of does it for me with his sped up, pop-punk simplicity. With sophistication in simpatico skate punk delivery, Fastfade can go “boo boo da, boo boo da” on the snare drum of my heart all day long, and maybe/maybe not, I let them get away with it.

This is one for the snotty-nosed and broken-hearted – fourteen tracks of progressive pop punk blending the best of those great bands we’re all so comfortable with under the covers, but when it comes to date-night, “Yeah, they were good until Dookie came out.” Relax. Fastfade is all “Netflix and chill.” No reason to be antsy. These are the golden daze. Backing vocals are on point throughout, with moments of power-pop undertones reminding us that skateboarders get to have friendships and girlfriends too, sometimes, like that night you went to bed with Tell All Your Friends and realized that the back-and-forth was actually pretty pleasant… Maybe it was just beer goggles. Songs like “Naked Attraction” are supplemented with All-esque inspired riffage, where happy/poppy tunes capitulate to themes of overthinking, loneliness and being a fucking weirdo. “These days in between/ strung out on caffeine/ making sense of what don’t make sense to me.”

Fastfade is coming of age. Hell, if they ever make it stateside, these boys are going to need a friendly liaison at the bar. I know you’ll be there when the time is right. Their new album, Happy If You Aren’t, releases December 14 on Umlaut Records and is available here for pre-order. You can stream that album below, and if not… then why not just help me kill myself, then? ‘Cause that’s what’s gonna fucking happen. Gawd. WTF!? Peace.



DS Exclusive: Wadeye (Anarcho, UK) Stream Latest EP “Spooneye With A Vengeance”

Manchester’s Wadeye have been good enough to give you Dying Scenesters an exclusive listen to their latest EP days ahead of its general release. Spooneye With a Vengeance is the third collection of music to date from the band. It features seven tracks of fierce, fiery yet immensely dance-able anarcho ska punk.

Taking the helm in terms of recording and mixing was Andy Dazzler of UK melodic hardcore act Dead Neck at Flush Studios, Manchester. The demented, politicised artwork has been provided by the immensely talented Flid Vicious. Handling distribution will be Pumpkin Records in the UK and Europe and No Time in the US.

The band, widely considered Manchester’s most dangerous, have scheduled the release of Spooneye With A Vengeance for this Wednesday. However, you lovely lot can check it out below. You’re most welcome.



DS Exclusive: Panhandler (ffo: Hot Water Music, Hard Girls) premiere new single, “Wherever That Is”

Here’s some new music out of Stockholm, Sweden to titillate your ear-holes. It’s a little bit country, a little bit punk, a little bit emo. Whatever you wanna call these guys (and lady) they’ve put together a righteous little indie tune that goes well with bands like The Menzingers, and Hard Girls.

Panhandler is gearing up to release their first full-length, Wherever That Is, on Trash Crusader Records (Europe) and Whisk and Key Records, (Australia) on December 8, 2018, following-up their 2016 EP, There Goes the Neighborhood. The band is fresh off a tour of The Outback, and promises the title-track to be “a painfully bittersweet, nostalgic tribute to past friends,” reminding us that, “no matter what separates you, the times you had will never go away.

Pre-orders for the album are available at Whisk and Key, and you can stream “Wherever That Is” below.



DS Exclusive: Italian HC band NOFU stream new EP, “Qui Ed Ora”

When I heard that my favorite Italian hardcore band, NOFU, was putting out new music, I jumped at the opportunity for an exclusive. I hopped on messenger and started up a chat and before you know it, I was beneficiary and custodian to exclusive content beholden to no one but myself. (and maybe a few of the band’s buds and whatnot) The weight of badassery fell squalidly on my shoulders, alone. Holy crap! What was I gonna’ write?

I first got the chance to see NOFU last year on their Thrashin’ the Bible Belt Tour, at my favorite local punk dive, and was absolutely blown away. The lead singer, Emanuele, was like seven feet, goddamn tall and radiating rock and roll eminence in cut-off jean shorts and high-kick glory. He had a voice like napalm and a smile like Jesus. Claudio, on guitar, was thrashing around in a performance reminiscent of Captain Sensible, but along with Bitto and Curzio (on bass and drums) terrorizing the place, these guys were playing the loud, fast shit.

The pit was ferocious (due props to my beloved hometown scene) and, needless to say, I gladly coughed up the measly 20 bucks for the vinyl, Interruzione, which has sense seen innumerous spins on my dusty, old table. I love this band. They are legitimately super badass. With influences ranging from Motörhead and Venom, Accused, Suicidal Tendencies, and Italian bands like Frammenti, Kina, and Stinky Rats to more post-hardcore influences like Crimpshrine and Hüsker Dü (who have a big influence on this new album, Qui Ed Ora) – the band knows their history, and, I think, could become a big part of it, if you let them.

NOFU is headed back on the road, embarking on a West Coast (U.S.) tour this month, with 14 stops from Tijuana to Washington, including one sold out show with The Cro-Mags and EYEHATEGOD. Qui Ed Ora won’t officially release until this February, however CD’s and cassettes are being made available for the tour via Carr’Amato Records and Reality is a Cult Records. Tapes and CD’s will be done FOR THIS TOUR ONLY!! So, if you’re lucky enough to catch these guys in the act, be sure and scoop one up. (or maybe two, so you can mail me a copy.) The February release will be on 7″ vinyl, however the band is still reaching out to labels. So, if you know a guy who knows a guy… cough, cough.

Qui Ed Ora is unbelievable. It’s a pleasant 4-track surprise that highlights the bands maturity, growth and dynamism as they depart from their hardcore/metal roots to touch on a transcendental time and element in punk rock music. Stream that EP and check out NOFU’s tour dates below.

“What we are, it has always been a postponement, omitted, of everything we do not have. Never could. Just beyond the fears. Just beyond the uncertainties. Just beyond the insecurities. Just beyond. The goal, the place, we are looking for. We aspire to. It’s so close, but we do not see it. What we call the path. The path, it is only the name of fear, of hesitation. Here and now, quotes of what we would like here and now, broken phrases. Silences. Redeemed and fragile.” (Lyrics to “Qui Ed Ora” from translation)
