Matt Skiba finally recording with new project, theHELL

Frequent readers and punk savants will remember earlier this year when we informed you that one-third of Alkaline Trio (Matt Skiba, of course), would be recording with a new project, THE HELL, along with Atom Willard (who recently left Angels & Airwaves and may still be in Danko Jones). And then…nothing.

Nothing until now, that is. Skiba has taken to Twitter again in the last few hours with a long-awaited update:

For those who have been asking, theHELL is recording this week. Music ASAP. We got songs, a font, a logo, and after tomorrow: hard evidence.

Of course we’ll keep you posted with any new developments. We’re just as curious as you as to what we can expect from theHELL.



Random Cover Song Thursday: Alkaline Trio cover The Cure’s “Exploding Boy”

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.

This week, it’s Alkaline Trio covering The Cure’s track, “Exploding Boy.” You can check out the cover and compare it to the original here.

You can find the Alkaline Trio cover on their 2000 self-titled compilation album.



Alkaline Trio announce more Europe tour dates

Ask the boss for a few extra days off in November, Trio fans…

It was announced last month that Alkaline Trio were headed across the pond to play a series of UK tour dates in November. Today brings word of at least one A3 appearance in the mainland. Seems they are due to play the Telekom Extreme Playgrounds in Berlin on November 20th with Incubus, among others.

Since a one-off continental Europe date seems unlikely, we’ll keep you posted about any future dates.

Alkaline Trio’s latest album, the all-acoustic “Damnesia,” was released July 12th on the band’s own Heart & Skull Records.



Heather Gabel to exhibit Alkaline Trio work

Gabel will also be releasing a limited-edition book at the exhibition that details the history between herself and Alkaline Trio over the past fifteen years.

Alkaline Trio released a semi-acoustic fan-favourites album, “Damnesia,” earlier this year via Heart & Skull Records.

Cover Art Battle: Alkaline Trio, Sublime With Rome, Earth Crisis and more… GO VOTE!!

Remember when buying an album meant something more than adding a dozen audio files to an already endless collection of impersonal mp3s? It was a time when liner notes actually got read and there was something really special about the art that graced an album’s cover. Today, in an industry dominated by iTunes and Pandora, it seems the cover art of an album is getting a little under-appreciated.

Well, we here at Dying Scene aren’t letting the art form die off so easily. Whether bizarre, beautiful, thought provoking, or hilarious, each Tuesday we will present the most interesting album covers of the week and let you readers vote on which one you think should win “Best Cover Art of the Week!”

Check out the offerings for the week of July 12th right here and get voting!
