DS Exclusive: Sicko (Red Scare pop-punk) premiere lyric video for “The Sprinkler”

Do you guys remember Sicko, the pop-punk band from Seattle who had their heyday in the mid 90s? You might if you’re over 35 and the rest of you should get familiar by checking out their back catalog available digitally through Red Scare.

Anyway, for the pre-initiated, you’ll be pleased to know that Red Scare just released an anthology/”best-of” album “In The Alternate Timeline” containing 19 remastered songs, hand-picked by the band, and I couldn’t be more pleased to bring you a lyric video from one of said tunes. Being “old” and into punk for 25 odd years I can proudly say I owned every Sicko record when I was but a youngster. Join me in my fandom by scoping the lyric video for “The Sprinkler” along with some of the band’s rare(!) upcoming gig dates below.

Oh, and here’s a cool little story about the footage from the band themselves:

Once, on a warm spring evening long ago, 3 pop punkers drove their beloved touring van onto the island of Manhattan, through the streets of Greenwich Village, and played a show at a club called Coney Island High (15 St. Mark’s Place?). We had a lot of fun playing to an at-the-time rare enthusiastic audience. Was that Alan Rappaport from Popkid Records swinging from the overhead pipes while we played? Watch the video and you be the judge. That was quite a display of youthful energy and abandon, looking back on it now. The truth is New York scared us: the size of it, the all-hours press of people, the lack of identifiable traffic lanes, movies like Escape from New York… it was all too much for 3 tense provincials just stepping out into the world. In the event, New York held surprises for us and our misconceptions: an 11pm parking ticket, cafes full of happy chatting people at 2am, and some of the friendliest, kindest, warmest punk rockers we would meet in a 10,000 mile tour across America. We’re looking forward to seeing a few of you again, old friends. Come down to Gold Sounds in Brooklyn, hear the sounds of your youth (ours too!), share your old stories and do-you-remember-when with us a bit. This time we’re leaving the van at home! Love, Sicko.



“Clash of the Titans” tour reboot rumored to be in the works

Clash of the Titans. Do you remember that tour from the early 90’s? Were you even alive back then? Did you miss it when it happened? Well, now rumors have been floating around that a reboot of this legendary tour will happen next year or so in honor of its 30th anniversary.

However, as indicated by the Facebook page Thrash Metal Family, the rebooted “Clash of the Titans” tour may not include Slayer (who are in the middle of their final world tour) but likely Megadeth and Testament. Other thrash veteran acts, including Kreator, Exodus, Death Angel, Overkill and Anthrax, have been suggested a fill-in for Slayer, while “new school” bands such as Suicidal Angels, Havok and Warbringer have been suggested to open the tour.

There were two lineups of the “Clash of the Titans” tour. The first one took place in Europe in September and October 1990 and it was co-headlined Megadeth and Slayer, and supported by Testament and Suicidal Tendencies. A U.S. leg from 1991 was triple-headlined by Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax and the opening act was none other than Alice in Chains. Megadeth and Slayer actually toured together again back in 2010, co-headlining the “American Carnage” tour, with the first leg supported by Testament and the second by Anthrax.

We’ll keep you updated when details on the rebooted “Clash of the Titans” tour surface!



2nd Annual Red Rocks Beer Festival: Punk in Drublic

Beer/Music Fests are all the rage these days, but we’ve had a gaping hole in that department over the last year or so here in the US ever since punk legend Fat Mike and his trailblazing Punk in Drublic Fest was banished after making insensitive comments following the Las Vegas mass shooting. But things have blown over as they seem to do over time and the Festival has made it’s triumphant return to the States. We sent Anarchopunk down to snap some shots when the tour rolled through Red Rocks Amphitheater just outside of Denver and he didn’t disappoint (anyone other than his wife). Check out his write up and a full gallery below!

We don’t care either way, just watch it below.



New video: Tiny Stills – “Everything Is Going Great”

Rise and shine, boys and girls!

There’s a brand-new music video from the great Tiny Stills available for your viewing enjoyment. It’s for a track called “Everything Is Going Great,” and it’s probably their finest work to date, and I say that as an immense fan of the band. Check it out below.

“Everything Is Going Great” appears on the recent Tiny Stills/Odd Robot split that comes out next week on Wiretap Records. The band’s last full-length, Laughing Into The Void, came out last year.

DS Exclusive: Suck Brick Kid (Orlando pop punk) – “Get Even” from upcoming album “Salt To Taste”

Happy Friday, boys and girls!

Dying Scene are fired up to bring you the lead single from the debut full-length from Orlando, Florida’s Suck Brick Kid! The track is called “Get Even,” and it appears on the pop-punk sextet’s upcoming album Salt To Taste, which is due out October 25th on Smartpunk Records.

Here’s what the band’s frontman Grant Tchekmeian has to say about the track:

“The song is about wasting your life (or a chunk of it) on a significant other. Anyone who has dealt with a cheating ex that lies constantly can relate with the range of emotions that flood in. I wanted to put myself in a friend’s shoes and write about how they felt while dealing with that shit.”

Check out the video for “Get Even” below. Pre-order Salt To Taste here while you’re at it!



Omnigone (ex-Link 80) release debut album “No Faith”

Omnigone, the brand new East Bay ska-punk outfit started by Adam Davis of Link 80 and featuring members of We Are The Union, Rx Bandits, Ogikubo Station, and Skatune Network, just dropped their long-anticipated debut album No Faith via Bad Time Records. The thirteen-track release is an evolutionary chart of all of the best parts of ska music we’ve seen grow and change over the past four decades that really showcases Davis’ skill as a musician and songwriter as well as his unflinching love for the genre. No Faith is written from the perspective of someone who has been making and playing punk music for more than twenty years, so there are a lot of complicated emotions tied up in these songs, but at the end of the day Omnigone’s central themes are rooted in positivity and gratitude. Is it the ska record we deserve in 2019? Maybe not, but it’s the one we need right now.

No Faith is out now on all streaming platforms but you can still stream the full album over at Pure Grain Audio if that’s more your speed, or snag a vinyl variant through Bad Time Records.
