Crossover legends M.O.D. (fronted by S.O.D. and United Forces singer Billy Milano) are offering a free download of a new song entitled “Hermano” and you can snatch it up by clicking here.

Here’s what Billy Milano had to say about the band’s as-yet-untitled upcoming album, which will be their first since 2007’s Red, White & Screwed:

“Greeting M.O.D./S.O.D. fans. Billy Milano here. M.O.D. is in the final stages of writing a brand new ripping record. I had a few offers from some labels. But in the end, the offers were nothing more than worthless bullshit.

I have done M.O.D. for 26 years. And I have always made a record that I was proud of. Now I want to make this record that I have been working very hard on for the last 6 months. That is where you fans come in. I have always helped out many bands and musicians. And now I am asking my fans, OUR FANS, for donations to help make this record a reality. M.O.D. is currently getting ready to leave for our European tour as I type this.

In return, I am offering you a very real NYHC Punk record that will be the best M.O.D. record I have ever done. And believe me, it is!!! The record will be available as a FREE download to all the M.O.D. fans in the world. Or would you just rather have another Justin Bieber record?

Peace and respect as always.
March on!

We’ll keep you posted as more details on the new M.O.D. record come to light. The band will be touring Europe from mid to late June. Details on when and where they’ll be stopping can be found below.

Random Cover Song: M.O.D. – “I Love Livin’ in the City” (Fear)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today’s cover comes from one of New York’s finest crossover bands: M.O.D., covering “I Love Livin’ in the City”, originally performed by the legendary L.A. punk band Fear. The original is taken from Fear’s 1982 classic debut album The Record, while M.O.D.’s cover version appears on their 1989 album Gross Misconduct.

Feel free to compare both versions of “I Love Livin’ in the City” below.

ALL to reunite with Scott Reynolds again

ALL are once again reuniting with their former singer Scott Reynolds for at least one show at the Mohawk in Austin Texas on February 16th. A partially reunited M.O.D. (fronted by Billy Milano of S.O.D. and United Forces) will also be at the show as well as Tony Scalzo, Brewtality, Oklahomos, Flametrick Subs, Sabbath Crow and Douche Magouche. According to Reynolds’ Facebook page, more acts will play at the show.

Reynolds, who was the band’s singer from 1989 to 1993, had previously reunited with the band in 2008 for some shows, including that year’s Riot Fest in Chicago.

ALL released their last studio album, Problematic, in 2000 on Epitaph Records, but the possibility of new material from the band has been floating around for years.
