On a podcast hosted by Propagandhi‘s Chris Hannah, Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! claimed that the group’s highly anticipated new album, “Transgender Dysphoria Blues” is almost finished, and should be out by April or May of this year. The album will be the first since Grace publicly came out as a transexual, and is said to be a concept album of sorts dealing with trans-issues and the public perception of them. Listen to the whole podcast here.

DS Staff Picks – Top EPs + Albums of 2012 (Lauren Mills)

What’s up, everyone? My name is Lauren. I’m the the numero dos in command here at Dying Scene and I live in central Florida. This fact causes me to have to answer the same question from everyone and here’s your answer. You can stop now. Use Google. I’m also the friendliest / most sarcastic gimp you’ll ever meet. 2012 has been a trying year for America. There’s been so much senseless violence and political division that sometimes it all gets to be overwhelming. As this year comes to a close I am reminded that what really matters is who you have in your life. I’ve been an editor for DyingScene since 2010. It is years like these that I am extra thankful for the privilege to be friends with such wonderfully creative, talented people from all parts of the world and to have such a warm, supportive family. Forgive me if that sounded like a boring Oscar speech, but I do mean it with great sincerity. Despite the rough year, I did finish my first year of college with all A’s, turned 21, am still Straight Edge, I proudly voted in my first national election and my lifelong favorite football team hopefully has found a real QB for the first time in a decade. Boooooom!

Now let’s talk about my list. Over the years I’ve been noticing that I’m a little weird. My favorite shows are about a depressed young person that smokes weed with his neighbor’s dog, Meth Dealers and a a genius bipolar CIA agent. I feel like my taste sticks out a little bit from some of my friends. Out of all of our staff I’m probably considered the “Melodic Hardcore” kid if that means anything to you. Don’t get too caught up in defining genres or people though. This is just my personal taste / opinions. I’m a person full of lots of crappy opinions about everything and I’d like to share mine with you. Feel free to let me know what I missed and what you enjoyed this year in the comments Also, be aware that I loved the new Rocky Votolato and Matt Pryor. (I’m a huge fan, maybe he’s reading?) Reading this will be more fulfilling than watching my used to be favorite fictional Miami serial killer now turned into a generic soap opera star, Dexter. I promise not to jump the shark tank. Please let me know if you enjoy it.

With all that in mind, check out my favorite releases from this year here in descending order.

The best Propagandhi article you will ever read (probably)

Man, I wish we could take credit for this one.  Canada’s Exclaim! magazine did an absolutely fantastic article on Propagandhi chronicling the evolution of the band in a year by year breakdown beginning with the group’s inception in 1986.  It’s got awesome insight in to all sorts of things you probably didn’t know much about including the break with John Samson (who went on to start The Weakerthans) and the fallout between the fellas and Fat Wreck Chords.  Tons of great quotes from the band (past and present members) as well as some really interesting quotes from Fat Mike.  Here’s one from him about Propagandhi’s decision to release their last album “Failed States” on Epitaph, as opposed to Fat or their own label G7:

“I advanced them $50,000 to start G7,” says Fat Mike. “I helped them start their own label and was very supportive of them doing their own label, and they stopped doing their own label. Now they’re on Epitaph. I don’t really see how Fat Wreck Chords went wrong, or how we wronged them.”

It’s long so you’ll need to dedicate some time to it but if you’re a Propagandhi fan I highly recommend reading the entire article here.
