Introducing Sub Dio (aggressive South Bay punk rock)

Today, I’m happy to introduce Sub Dio, a band that consists of a lot of familiar faces from the Bay Area punk scene. Featuring former members of Great Apes, The Ghost, and Reunions, Sub Dio play a brand of punk that is rooted in urgency and aggression. Their self-titled debut will release on July 19th via Underground Communique and Side With Us Records, but you can get a preview of what’s to come by listening to “Skeeters.” The song is a direct response to predatory, parasitic, and incessant behavior many men feel entitled to exhibit towards women. Brian and Danica’s dual vocal approach is a shot to the gut and demands your attention. Give it a listen below.

This EP includes five aggressive songs that set an urgent and relentless pace that pull you through from start to finish. The anger fueling Sub Dio’s lyrics are inspired by Danica’s work as a Bay Area social justice lawyer and time working to end mass incarceration and the criminalization of poverty. Brian’s history of thematic lyrics have always brought a unique feel to his songs, which are also undoubtedly influenced by his job as a South San Francisco middle school teacher.

Brian and Danica trade vocals to create a powerful audio counterbalance between her fierce screams and Brian’s guttural yet melodic voice. The way each vocalist occupies completely separate spectrums while still melding together in a unique way bring to mind early Fugazi records.



Introducing New Punk Act: Fine Dining (FFO older Rise Against)

Remember when Rise Against was a little more edgy and a little less radio friendly? I miss that stage of the band, and if you do too then I’ve got a new group for you to check out. Spinning out of South Bay, Los Angeles Fine Dining isn’t breaking any molds with their style, but they’re certainly doing the genre justice. Speed, melodic aggression, gang shouts… If that’s the stuff that floats your boat like it does mine I recommend you check the band out via the music video and a full stream of their debut EP, “Grass Fed Tunes,” below.



Zach Quinn (PEARS) and Brian Wahlstrom (Scorpios) form punkiest non-punk band Bandaid Brigade

Bandaid Brigade is a brand new musical project from Zach Quinn (PEARS) and Brian Wahlstrom (Scorpios, Gods of Mount Olympus) intent on ripping up, setting fire to, and consigning to history the genre rulebook, with their eclectic and decade-spanning approach to songwriting.

The duo have just announced their debut single, ‘Travel Light’, the first track to be taken from their forthcoming debut album, I’m Separate. Further details of the full-length’s release are yet to be revealed, but you can watch the hilarious video for the lead single below.

“Both Brian and I wrote different sections for this song independently during different years, on different sides of the country,” says Quinn of the single. “Two unused chord progressions found their counterparts, and it was f*cking magical. As far as the video goes, I figured I’d let the camera crew in so they could film some of my spin class that I teach when the gym can afford my rates…”

Recorded at Black in Bluhm Studios in Denver, CO, and co-produced with Chris Fogal (The Gamits), the album features drummer Paul Rucker (Street Dogs, Drag the River). Quinn and Wahlstrom stretch beyond their punk roots on this project with ambitious songwriting, polished arrangements, and a throwback sound that draws some detectable influences from early progressive rock. The heavy ‘80s disco groove of lead single ‘Travel Light’ is light on the distortion, instead opting for a heady mix of Sprinsteen’s attitude, Elton John’s artistic balladry, and classic pop rock disco grooves echoing ABBA and Earth Wind & Fire.

“The thing that I kept thinking about the whole time was how much it reminded me a lot of a post-first-album The Clash,” says Quinn on the inspiration for the new project, “but then, I also thought to myself, ‘This is also way easier to listen to than Sandinista! ever was.’ We had the advantage of being able to look retrospectively over decades of rock and pop, and we were kind of able to pull from all of that—all the good stuff, and leave all the bad stuff out. You know, one band that kept coming up as we were making the record is Genesis, but Genesis songs are sometimes eight minutes long. We were like, ‘Well, that’s not necessary. We don’t need to do that.’ I feel like there were elements of that, all different examples of that.”

As for the band itself’s genesis, Quinn made his name fronting critically acclaimed New Orleans-based hardcore punk band PEARS, whilst Wahlstrom is a classically trained opera singer and pianist whose touring and recording career is rooted firmly in punk rock, and has included frequent collaborations with Joey Cape (Lagwagon). The duo connected on a tour produced by Cape’s label, One Week Records, which brings artists into a high energy, week-long write-arrange-record process that culminates in a completed album and follow-up touring. The pairing fully leverages the combination of Quinn’s raw edge, Wahlstrom’s finesse, and the lyrical power of dual songwriters.

Stay tuned, as tour dates for 2019 will be announced soon.



Stringer and fans posthumously complete music video for “Through The Walls” after untimely death of lead singer

In a joint statement, the surviving members of Brooklyn, NY indie rock band Stringer say, “Mark Fletcher, our brother and bandmate passed on Feb. 19th, 2019. For six years we made music. We lived our lives together with a bond that can only be forged by the most intense and ecstatic experiences, we spoke in our own language. Mark and filmmaker Chris Elia made this video featuring a collection of strangers and his best friends singing his words. We think this is fitting because Mark made friends so easily and it didn’t take long for a stranger to become a best friend.”

Elia, a longtime friend of the band and frequent collaborator adds, “When Mark was in the Bay Area this past winter, he used his camera phone (as well as his outgoing & charming personality) to start filming the 1st verse in my old neighborhood. We spent literal hours talking on the phone during his trip, part of which involved his vision for a lyric video. He was so ecstatic about the initial rough cut I had sent him, so I can only imagine the happiness it would have brought him to see the completed video full of familiar faces singing his song.”

Watch Stringer’s ‘Through The Walls’ video below.

Members of Stringer, along with family and friends of Mark’s have also banded together to launch The Mark Fletcher Studio, a non-profit that has been set up in his memory. Stringer’s practice room in Bushwick, Brooklyn has been refitted to host analog recorded sessions that are free for artists.

The band adds, “We are running this studio solely on community donations so any help is greatly appreciated! Even $5 or $10 will go a long way. Please donate here.

Produced by Adam Reich (So So Glos, ex-Titus Andronicus), Stringer’s critically-acclaimed album ‘My Bad’ was released in July on Wiretap Records.
