DS Exclusive: Downway premiere “Wild Ones” off upcoming “Last Chance for More Regrets” LP

Formerly of California-based Sessions Records, Downway (ffo: Goldfinger, Lagwagon) have recently come out of retirement and signed with Thousand Islands Records to release a new album, Last Chance for More Regrets. It drops May 1, and is the band’s first release since their split with Belvedere in 2003.

15 years is a long time to be away from the studio, but all early previews of the new album indicate that Downway, who reformed in 2017 after a lengthy hiatus, haven’t quite lost their touch. Last Chance for More Regrets promises more of the same anthemic 90’s-style melodic skate punk that initially earned them a few stints on the Warped Tour docket, and even a video spot on the historically beloved MTV network, before it was taken over by the Kardashians.

Since the band’s newfound rejuvenation they have toured western Canada as well as Japan, with more Canadian tour dates to look forward to surrounding the release of the upcoming LP. Today, I’m proud to showcase for you all their latest single, “Wild Ones”. If you’re a fan of catchy hooks, poppy harmonies, and energetic palm mute sections to bounce your head to, then this jam is one you may want to consider. You can stream “Wild Ones” as well as view Downway’s fast-approaching tour schedule below. Cheers!



DS Exclusive: We Found a Map stream “Royal Blue” off upcoming EP, “To the Robot Graveyard”

It’s new music day!! I mean, everyday. We’re punks not brainless Clear Channel amateurs, and today I’m here to wisen you up to a distinct group of so-Cal pop/skate punxx called We Found A Map. (There name has got to be a Goonies refernece, right? It just has to be.)

Earlier this week they streamed the first single, “Zelda is a Girl”, off their upcoming EP, To the Robot Graveyard, on their bandcamp page, which is also where you can stream and pre-order the EP that comes out in full on March 5. I’m happy to say that today I get to release the second single off that record, “Royal Blue”, which speaks largely of the band’s form and musical approach by design with intricate palm-mute patterns, and baroque bass lines that appropriately highlight the honest aspect in character of highly tangible lyricism and a fast-tempo pop punk backbone.

It’s a song about the team that can be seen as a metaphor for the American dream, and how we all chase it in our own varying ways, mostly in horse blinders.

To the Robot Graveyard is releasing on the heels of the band’s 2018 EP, To the Haunted Arcade. (Also available for streaming and download) There’s no telling where the great adventure will take us next. Stream “Royal Blue” below

Introducing Australian Punks All Hope Remains: FFO of Epi/Fat Skate Punk

All Hope Remains are apparently based in Australia, but I’m finding that hard to believe. Everything from the Euro-English stylings of their name, to the slightly metallic, melancholy-tinged sound screams ‘Alienated European punks who grew up listening to Epi/Fat’ to me. This isn’t the type of Aussie punk that conjures images of board shorts, beers and ‘barbies, it’s something deeper and more brooding than that.

Their latest single ‘Hit Rewind’ is sure to tickle the fancy of skate punks across the world; the opening snare roll and subsequent harmonic-laden guitar riff rolling back the years to when Ten Foot Pole and Pennywise were hotter than an ill-prepared British tourist walking in the Australian sun.

What sets these guys apart is their knack for melody and the clarity of the vocals. Plenty of bands are tight and technical, but few also have hooks that stand out over the flurry of riffs and drums fills that skate punk is heaving with.

Check them out here.
