Teenage Bottlerocket to release split 7-inch with Human Robots via Fat Wreck Chords

Guess what? Teenage Bottlerocket has a new release, and it’s called Teenage Bottlerocket vs. Human Robots! The split 7” comes out on September 6th via Fat Wreck Chords, and you can pre-order it here. Additionally, TBR will be tearing it up, headlining the FAT TOUR, which kicks off this month! Check out what Ray Bottlerocket had to say about the 7” and teaming up with his son Milo, below.

“Hello all! When Teenage Bottlerocket was at the Blasting Room working on “Stay Rad,” my son Milo came to the studio and recorded two songs with his band Human Robots. It wasn’t hard getting his band together, because Milo plays all the instruments and sings on the two songs he wrote. I guess it’s a one-man band (yes, he has no friends). His songs turned out great, and we somehow convinced Fat Wreck Chords to release a split 7” featuring the TBR songs “Olivia Goes to Bolivia” and “Everything To Me,” as well as the Human Robots songs “Step On Em All” and “I Want to Hang Out With You.” Chris Shary did the artwork, and it all turned out great. This is the best split since Taco Bell teamed up with KFC! I love sharing this rock n roll life with my son, Milo. Look out world; Human Robots are stoked to shred and ready to party!”

Speaking of party, the 2019 Fat Tour is just around the corner. Check out the dates and locations below.

Introducing the Crapsons’ CrapFest (UK): A Punk Rock All-Dayer of “Friends, Families, and Fellow Idiots”

We’re all about promoting the little guy with a grand plan here at DyingScene and following that train of thought, we though we’d share with you an event that caught our eye recently.

The hopefully ironically-titled CrapFest launches this year in the UK city of Liverpool. The event will take place at the city’s Phase One venue on 25th August and features an eclectic stack of bands looking to leave their stain on the once acclaimed European Capital of Culture. Whereas many all-dayers these days have a clear overarching theme, CrapFest is varied to say the least.

The brainchild of featured two piece Crapsons, Mike and Andy, the event is clearly looking to bring together a host of bands that don’t generally fit into a particular genre/scene; maybe they don’t want to fit with anything. Liverpool has a long history of promoting unique and interesting music and this will be no different.

Headlined by punk rockers Healthy Junkies and featuring the always-raucous Habits, Crapsons themelves, Salt The Snail, and Mr. Ted to name a few, the all-dayer has already sold out of its lower-priced early bird tickets but there are full price ones still available. If you’re keen to get involved in this diverse cluster-fuck of a show, don’t sleep on it!

You can find all ticket and other information for CrapFest here. You can also see the full lineup on the promotional poster below, as well as some words from the team behind the event.



Comminor release video for single “Work Ethics of a Working Girl”

Swedish punks Comminor have just announced they have a new video for their single, “Work Ethics of a Working Girl.”

From Comminor on the new video and single:

We just wanted to say fuck the patriarchy with a song and this is the result. 

The video reflects on stuff we felt writing the song, fucked up new (and old) abortion laws, women getting raped by men that get away with it and a bunch of other vile things. Sadly it’s a long list.

It’s one of the faster and harder songs that will appear on our upcoming album Answering Machine For Broken Dreams that is planned to be released in September 2019.”
