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.



Stream Tommy And June, the new acoustic Fat Wreck Chords band you probably missed

If you’re confused about who the hell Tommy & June are, join the club. Fat Wreck Chords quietly released the acoustic duo’s debut album last week without any of the usual fanfare you’d expect from the prominent label. If you’re curious what the deal is, here’s the origin story straight from label owner Fat Mike himself.

I never really put a band together before. It seems like a weird thing to do, but some things need to happen. I meet a lot of people on tour. Tommy I met in Israel about 12 years ago. Great singer/songwriter playing in a punk band. He was cool, and I started listening to his solo stuff. It was great, but no one ever came to see him play in the US. I felt bad. One day in SF Tommy asked me what he should do. He said no one comes to see his punk band or his solo shows. I said that’s how it goes. You’ve been doing this for over ten years and if you’re not drawing a crowd now, you never will. He was bummed. I was bummed. He’s a great songwriter, but who cares? Two days later I remembered I met an Iranian Colombian dude on tour that was a great singer-songwriter too. I hadn’t spoken to him in years….I had a weird idea. I emailed both of them and told them to start a band together. I know you live in two different parts of the world….but I think you would make a great two-piece band. Let me produce the record and we’ll see how it goes. You don’t have to tour. Just spend a week in the studio with me. I said record short acoustic weird songs with a new wave edge. They did. We did ten songs that came in at 20 minutes. I fucking loved it. Totally simple and clean and short and catchy and I had never heard a band sound like this before…. AND like Stiff Little Fingers (Protestants and Catholics), no one expects a Jew and a Colombian Arab to be making music together. Like SLF, it’s fucking good.

I introduce to the world Tommy and June…. two kinda boring guys that make really fucking great music together.

Ink Bomb release new single, “Scourge”, off their upcoming debut album

Dutch skate punks Ink Bomb have just released the second single off their upcoming album, Fiction, which is due August 23. The song is called “Scourge,” even though it wasn’t always.

“Before the song was named Scourge, ‘Poppy song’ was the working title during song writing. We called it that way, because the song is more pop punk than many of our other songs,” says drummer Paul van de Geijn. “We wrote multiple new songs at the same time. This way, we immediately knew what new song we were talking about in the rehearsal room.”

Do you like this poppy direction from Ink Bomb? Listen to “Scourge” below.

Pardon Us (punk) stream “Inconvenient Reminder” off upcoming album “Wait”

If ever there was a single song stream that could convince me to buy an entire album without hearing the entire thing, this might be it. Liverpool’s gritty pop-punk act Pardon Us will be releasing “Wait” on September 13th through Everything Sucks Music (UK) and Johann’s Face Records (US). To prime their fans they’re streaming the track “Inconvenient Reminder” ahead of the release and it 100% grabbed my attention. Let it grab yours below.

Of the track, the band writes:

Much of our music is about being directionless 30-somethings but more ‘political’ tracks like Inconvenient Reminder have found their way into our writing in response to events in recent years.

This will be the Pardon Us’s first release since the 2017 self-titled EP.



Fat Wreck to release new Mean Jeans album “Gigantic Sike,” stream new song “Party Line”

Since their recent foray into the world of brand marketing, Mean Jeans have been living the life: chugging Mountain Dew, scarfing Totino’s, auditioning for the next Bill & Ted’s excellent adventure, and generally keeping it real.

Lucky for us, they found the time to bang out a new album, and according to their publicicst it’s a ripper! Mean Jean’s new full-length, Gigantic Sike, hits the streets on August 30th through Fat Wreck Chords. The first single, “Party Line,” is meant to be cranked up with the top down. Check it out below.

Here’s an endorsement from the party captain himself, Billy Jeans:

“Selling out to Mountain Dew wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be, so Mean Jeans are back with a straight-up stripped-down party punk record. It’s called Gigantic Sike. It was gonna be called something more reasonable and the songs were gonna be more marketable and I was gonna get a real job, but we put a big ‘ol sike on it instead. ‘Party Line’ is basically a jingle for the party hotline that nobody seems to be calling anymore. (My cell phone). Give it a try, I’m standing by.”
