DS Exclusive: Thirsty Guys premiere new single, “Bad Chemistry”

Thirsty Guys are a brilliant young ska/punk band from New Brunswick, New Jersey featuring members The Best of The Worst, and Hub City Stompers. They’ve got a new album on the way which promises to take you “on a wild ride through the mind of vocalist / keyboard player Joe Scala, as he belts out 10 tracks about quarter life crises, scene drama, depression, and other fun topics not usually synonymous with our favorite Hawaiian shirt stained genre. The songs sway back and forth between the dance-able ska that you’d no doubt be sweating to in a New Brunswick basement, and speedy punk with traces of technical hardcore… a small tip-off that you’re listening to the same guys who’ve been pushing the boundaries of ska-core for over a decade.”

Parched hits digital shelves with vinyl ready to ship on or around August 16 courtesy of Bad Time Records, (featuring “coke bottle green”, and “oxblood in milky white” variants) as well as Choke Artist Records. (Featuring red with black splatter) Pre-orders are available here, and on Thirsty Guys Bandcamp page.

Dying Scene is happy to give these guys (and gal: guest vocalist Liz Fackleman) the premiere treatment today with their brand new happy/sad, dance-y personal crisis song “Bad Chemistry”. It’s a “beacon of our wrecklessness”, Scala sings along a surf-y skank rhythm made all-the-better by an adventure-game-esque synth-laden bridge and Fackleman’s contributions.

DS Exclusive: For The Record (ffo: Streetlight Manifesto, Reel Big Fish) premiere new EP, “The Mess They Call My 20’s”

Here’s a new one for all you happy dancers out there, filled with quirky tunes, and timeless scenarios, replete with an energy not uncommon to the genre (Third Wave) and stuffed to the brim with gooey brass goodness like a crispy cheese stick ready to burst hot lava all over the roof of your totally expecting but super impatient palate. It’s time to shake off those skankin’ boots and hit the dance floor with a little one-two one-two, and if you get knocked down, just skank on up again. That’s just the mess they call “life”.

Here’s a new dish from central Cali ska-punkers, For The Record, all about those coming-of-age years that I like to call “second puberty”. It can be a confusing time for a young rudey, with so many falling victim to the pizza plague third-wave ska resurgence of the 90’s. (Which of course led to the oft-not discussed pepperoni shortage of the early-’00s.) For The Record are a new era sextet of true believer practitioners attempting to keep the sounds fresh going into the 2020’s… and yeah, you’re seeing this clearly. That’s 3x the 20’s.

The Mess They Call My 20’s is due out tomorrow (7/19/19) on Manic Kat Records, but the band wanted to reach out and give all you Dying Scene homies a nod and a shake before then so you can go and tell all your friends about this super-cool, awesome-dope jam that you were in on a day early because you’re a super-cool-awesome spaz-matic uber-music-dweeb. (Like me.) The Mess They Call My 20’s is the band’s second EP in as many years and showcases “a melting pot of expression and enthusiasm developed over eight years and three promising records.” Fondu-bitably… I know, I know. I’m so cheezy.

DS Exclusive: Filthy Hearts (ffo: Against Me!) stream new single, “Ambulatory”

 

Filthy Hearts out of Denver, CO have a jaw-dropping new banger of a track they are releasing with Dying Scene today. They are a group of rogue punk rock beer warriors featuring ex-members of The Larimers and The A-OKs who are looking to take over the world with the sounds of a bedside battle ax, and a dissenting sentiment or three. Since the band’s onset in 2016 with the release of I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead (Inside) they’ve graced the ineffable stages of such DS favorites as The Lillingtons and Murderburgers, and caught the interest of Hidden Home Records who is putting out Filthy Hearts’ debut LP Beyond Repair this coming August 30th. No pre-orders available yet, but keep an eye out for packages dropping somewhere on the interwebs soon. (probably here) If you’re in Denver, then be shure and check out the pre-release party later this week on July 13 at The Moon Room, where a limited number of CD’s will be available for ONE TIME ONLY before the official release date.

And what’s this song that we are talking about anyway? But, of course! It’s called “Ambulatory”, and you can stream that track below.

From the band: “Ambulatory is about the struggle of becoming a better person. It’s about how you have to let things go and do things differently because it’s such a waste of time to be bitter and hateful. It’s about bettering yourself among people who may not want to change and so you have to let them go. I just don’t want to be bitter and mean my whole life and that’s something I have struggled with in the past.”



DS Exclusive: Diablogato (Rockabilly) stream new single, “Boston Blood, Memphis Heart”

Boston rockabilly outfit Diablogato just signed with State Line Records to release their sophomore album, Old Scratch, which is due out on August 23 on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. They’ve joined with us at Dying Scene, today, to give all you lovely readers a quick sneak peak at the wholesome goodness that awaits with an Old Scratch order – details on that, they promise will be available soon. Until then we’ll just have to satiate our palates with the brand new song, “Boston Blood, Memphis Heart”, streaming exclusively below.

Here’s a great tune that’s just as much country and americana as rockabilly punk. It pulls at the heartstrings of those storied roads crisscrossing America with vibrant harp and big bodied tremelo, canonical click clacking of the upright bass in tangent with the euphonious howls of a grizzled punk rock lifer into a 50’s-style Unidyne microphone pressing the urgent necessity, “Johnny don’t you worry, Johnny don’t you fret. The road’s been paved with… hard work, blood and sweat. When I look into the future the darkness settles in, in a fight that lasts forever and a war that noone wins. So, get on up. Get on up. If you fall down, boy, you gotta’ get back up!”

“Boston Blood, Memphis Heart” is a warm-bodied singalong that goes well with train hoppin’, slinking around the bayou, or cruising off in you shiny white-walled rat rod for fans of Social Distortion, Kings of Nuthin‘ and The Living End. It was recorded at Mad Oak Studios in Allston, MA, and produced and engineered by Benny Grotto along with the rest of the album.

Old Scratch consists of seven hits including two covers in which Diablogato gets to show off their Boston heritage, and I think I’ll just leave the reader guessing on those two for awhile. Be sure and add this band to your radar as they are sure to play a show near you in the near future. Devil Cat’s on the prowl. Yikes!



DS Exclusive: Russian Girlfriends stream new single, “Pride Parade”

Albuquerque hardcore punk band, Russian Girlfriends have a new album on the way, In The Parlance of Our Times. That album can be expected to hit shelves on June 21 courtesy of A-F Records. This is Russian Girlfriends first release on A-F Records, and their first full-length since their self-released All Around debut (later repressed on Orange Whip and Gunner Records) which came out in 2015. Pre-orders for In The Parlance can be found here, and to celebrate they are rolling out gold and silver vinyl pressings in limited quantities for the first lucky custos, almost like a “new year new me” kind of thing… in the middle of summer.

Here’s an energy-laden teaser off that album for fans of Pears, Propagandhi, and a little bit of that old thyme rock and roll. The guitars get after it while lead singer Adam Hooks spreads a little positivity, “Love is love, man, let it grow,” this song is called “Pride Parade” and it’s coming at you first on the Dying Scene airwaves. Stream that track below. The record release show will take place in Albuquerque at Launchpad. So check THAT out if you’re in the area, and be sure and catch these homies at Fest this year in Gainesville, FL.



The Slaughterhouse Chorus premiere “Wellsville” off upcoming farewell album “…In The Name of Progress”

*whistles in americana*

The Slaughterhouse Chorus are an ameri-kinda punk band from Albany, New York who many Dying Scene readers have come to love and cherish over the years. They offer a slice of something different… a folkier side that showcases the roots of American rock and roll music with a punk rock (detre)mentality. The pace is snappy and upbeat, never lingering too long on the classisized roots stylings of dual guitarists Chris Jordan and Jay Bonafide albeit allaying due credence in thought out swampy blues signatures at times while at others laid out in freewheelin’ heartland cow punk vibra-tones. 

The bands new album …In The Name of Progress  is set for release on May 31 on  Built4BBQ Records, a co-operative label co-pioneered by members of The Slaughterhouse Chorus amongst other well-meaning musicians from the Empire State. Sadly, this will be the band’s final release, as they plan to part ways at the closing of this year. …In The Name of Progress is available for pre-order on vinyl and digital download here.

The Slaughterhouse Chorus has gifted us faithful fans with another early release, this time for the song “Wellsville” which is the final song on the upcoming EP and one which the band expects to represent the culmination of their time together and with their listeners in a grand finale. It is a song about “the American dream and the accompanying suburban nightmare. We’d have to assume it’s also the only rock ‘n’ roll song that references both Van Morrison and ‘The Adventures of Pete & Pete’. It’s the longest, heaviest, and somehow most exhausting thing we’ve ever done, and a song that we collectively feel is the best we’ve ever written and recorded. As the closing track on our last record it seems like a good high point to go out on.” And then, as they say, The Slaughterhouse Chorus will ride off into the sunset.

Check out the exclusive early stream for “Wellsville” below.



DS Exclusive: The Problem Addicts premiere upcoming “Bad Breaks” LP

Breaking: Florida band, The Problem Addicts descend upon America with their new LP, Bad Breaks. Yes, we are aware this is probably the least bizarre news story you’ll hear come out of Florida today… Fully.

Bad Breaks releases tomorrow on A Jam Records but The Problem Addicts have been mindful enough to think Dying Scene readers ought to get a little taste of it first. It’s “Lonely nights and bad breaks, hospitals and heart breaks,” and goes well, with Murderburgers, early Alkaline Trio, and No Use For A Name.

The band was previously reviewed at Dying Scene (here) by my colleague Daron and honestly, I don’t think I could have said it better myself. “Me like good much, too.” With dope ass album art by Brian Burkes, Bad Breaks was produced, mixed and mastered by Matt Goings at Killian Studios. Get a load of the new record below, and swing by the band’s bandcamp page to purchase your own digital album. 



DS Exclusive: Holly Would Surrender premiere new EP, “Wish You Were Bread”

German pop punk band Holly Would Surrender are “flipping the bird to conformity”. They’ve announced they are releasing a new EP via White Russian Records on May 26, titled Wish You Were Bread, and what do you know? Dying Scene has got it a few days early. The inspiration for this record came out of a unique place for the band. Lead singer Ole says, “We wanted to try something new this time. We were in a situation, where we on one hand, [we] had to stop as band or on the other hand, work on new material, and besides that, find new members to join.

In this process we decided to work with friends in other bands on our material to get a new focus and expand our sound and music. Every song got a name on it you probably know. Oshie Bichar (Beartooth, City Lights), Callum Amies (the bottom line), Andy Vossenberg (the 101s) and Chris Piquette (Trophy Wives) We really love how the EP turned out. It’s something new but it’s still us. The mixing part took place in the Wachusett studios by Michael Harmon, who we met on tour with Four Year Strong. The mastering was made by Jay Mass (Defeater, State Champs and many more..) We hope you like it as much as we do and will enjoy it!”

Holly Would Surrender is hitting the road for a few dates with Reel Big Fish this summer, so be sure and add them to your radar so you don’t miss out.  You can stream Wish You Were Bread below



DS Exclusive: The Butts stream “Alex Jones Is One Of Them” off upcoming “Nightmare at Area 51” EP

Austin, TX punkers The Butts have just announced their upcoming EP, Nightmare at Area 51, to be released on Stars at Night Records this coming June. This will be a follow up to the band’s 2017 self-titled full-length, and hopefully marks a pivotal stance towards more future releases from the group who had not previously released any music since their 2011 Second to All LP which “took about a year and half, two guitar players, and three drummers to release… [they’re] lazy.”

Taking a new trajectory, these goofballers with the best band name since The Misfits, have formulated a concept album of four punkers broken down in the vast West Texas abyss, kidnapped by space invaders and forced to do gawd knows what at Area 51. All that remains of their mysterious disappearance is a tape. See? It says that here.

 

A tape? C’mon I mean this is 2019… anyway… this calamitous documentation has been disbounded and manifestly declassified to be made available on all streaming parameters June 7. Also, a preview has been released to the general public regarding some of these futuristic transgressions in an effort presumably to ease the rudimentary minds of those unwilling to accept the implications of such developments.

That preview, a warning that others may already be among us is streaming below. It’s called “Alex Jones Is One Of Them”. Included are lyrics hacked and decoded by DSLeaks themselves, at the upheaval of American authorities. The people have a right to know.

UP THE BUTTS!!!!

 

 



DS Exclusive: Ten Foot Pole premiere new album, “Escalating Quickly”

I know it’s a little last minute, but I figure every once in a while it’s only right to do something nice for those special night walkers in all of our lives. So, here you go, my children of darkness. Ten Foot Pole… a whole, like hour or something before it’s supposed to release officially.

If you didn’t know this album was coming out then you’ve probably been sleep walking through life again. I mean… don’t you get excited about anything? Personally, I’ve been wondering what took this thing so long to hit my inbox. I was almost starting to think that Thousand Islands Records was holding out on me. :p

Escalating Quickly jumps from head-banging to booty-shaking, screams to giggles, and anger to hope. The goal was to push beyond the musical expectations set by our past music, to have fun, and to be honest in a way that helps us feel connected with people. I hope you like these songs as much as I do,” says singer/guitarist, Dennis Jagard. Guest artists who get in the mix include: Dan Palmer (Death By Stereo), Dan Jacobs (Atreyu), Sean Sellers (Good Riddance) and Joe Raposo (Lagwagon).

The new album drops tomorrow on Thousand Island Records with vinyl variants available via Disconnect Disconnect Records(UK), Morning Wood Records (Europe) and Pee Records (Australia). Here is the link for purchaseEscalating Quickly was somewhat of a DIY experiment and the band “seeks patrons willing to subscribe at $1 per month or more, to help fund future recording, and in return offers supporters newsletters and early access to music, podcasts, videos and more.” Click here for more info on becoming a patron… and duh! Stay up and enjoy the new album from Ten Foot Pole below for a non-alcoholic reason to show up to work dark-eyed tomorrow morning. G’night!

Today, Dying Scene is bringing you a band that’s close to this young writers heart, undead scenesters. Here’s one that hits close to home… literally. From Parts Unknown is from my hometown.

We rule.

From Parts Unknown has been working hard for years, stacking tours and making their rounds across the U.S. They’ve got a kickin’ Spotify channel, and have played with countless kickass bands in jam packed rooms slangin’ sexy punk rock and roll carried out with excelsior energetic performances, with the unique distinction of Chris Parrish rocking the swinging upright. Old Benji McCraken wears his heart on his sleeve and slays the six-string… which is a Gretch… which is Wicked, and Jimmy Sefcik is the newest edition on the sticks, who’s poised to push this band into the future… That’s your minds and your hearts, young scenesters.

DS Exclusive: Give You Nothing stream upcoming self-titled full-length debut

Happy Monday, gang!

We’re pretty stoked to bring you a killer new album today. It’s the self-titled debut release from Santa Cruz’s Give You Nothing. The quintet cut their teeth playing in other bands like Downpresser, Uzi Suicide, At Risk, and No Truce in and around the Santa Cruz area, and formed came together as a sort of skate punk Voltron back in 2016. 

The band holed up at Oakland’s Sharkbite Studio recently, and the result is their kick-ass debut, self-titled full-length. It’s due out this Wednesday, May 1st, via Snubbed Records in the US and Umlaut Records in the UK, but you can check it out below right now!

DS Exclusive: Dead Neck (UK) and Actionmen (Italy) Stream “Defections” Split

Two of Europe’s finest melodic hardcore bands have united on record and DyingScene is proud to give you lot a sneak peak of the results 24 hours before release day.

The UK’s Dead Neck and Italy’s Actionmen will release Defections tomorrow with the help of Germany’s Mud Cake Records. You can pick up a copy from the label’s website, and pre-orders currently live.

The split effort opens with five experimental, hyper-technical jams from Actionmen who once again display their off-the-wall approach to song writing and virtuosity on record.

Closing out the split is Dead Neck with five tracks that feel like they pick up where the band’s recently re-issued self-titled debut EP left off. It’s rapid, aggressive, oh so melodic, and offers its own share of technicality to boot.

We asked the two bands to say something about the new release. Both were good enough to give a brief description of each of the tracks appearing on Defections. You can find out exactly what inspired each band’s contributions to the split whilst listening to the entire thing below.
