DS Exclusive: Captain Trips (skate-punk) stream new EP, “Stand By”

Here’s a few fresh cuts from South Coast, UK skate-punk band, Captain Trips. Their latest release, Stand By, comes out on Umlaut Records on the 5th and they’ve graciously allowed DS the exclusive premiere a few days early. Here’s what it is: dope lyrics, super cool bass lines, dual-guitar harmonies, chants, and a mix of heavier metal influences with those most exquisite fine-tunings that make solid punk music punk music, all packaged fresh with the seal of a post-apocalyptic kiss and what one can only assume is the UK skate-punk-scene absolutely exploding around them.

“Come down the rabbit hole with [Captain Trips]… and burn that fucker right into the ground!” they say in their Siren Song as the world burns in the constant fast-paced drumming of Andi Farrar with the underlying leads of dual guitarists, Rich and Phil, bouncing off each other arioso, and bassist Lee Warren compounding a few leads of his own.

Captain Trips is a fast melodic skate-punk band, for fans of The Offspring, No Use For a Name and Pears. From “Bottom of the River” where the band calls you in with lines like, “You are all my brothers to me,” and bleed you dry, “who we were at the bottom, we found the strength to cut the head off the snake,” to the reason of “The Voice”, “You’re the voice. Try to understand it. Make a noise and make it clear,” and unfettered rage of “Siren Song” which breaks down in a cacophony of emotion, “for love not hurt there has to be some sense left in fucking humanity!” This music is cutthroat, like a tiny pebble under the wheel of your skateboard. Aimed at “the enemies of human progress,” and the “tired anthems” of the old ways, but made assuredly for you, young skate-punk-loving-zombie-scene-heads. Stream Stand By below and order your copy here.

Captain Trip’s self-titled EP was released in April, 2016.



DS Exclusive: I Against I (Punk-O-Rama) stream new album, “Small Waves”

I love this job. Doing write-ups for hard-working bands is an incredibly satisfying thing. The amount of unheard of, yet absolutely fantastic bands out there is truly unfathomable… but you’re a punk rocker, so surely you can already understand the importance of these bands, the music they make, and the amount of positivity that punk rock has contributed to each one of our lives. (Think you’re pretty up-to-date on all your scene-head knowledge? Why not take a look through our Dying Scene band profiles and see for yourself?)

(Unfathomable…)

That being said, it’s always a thrill when something really cool and genuine comes traipsing through the door… a figurative door, I mean. (And figurative traipsing.) Actually word came to me via e-mail that legendary Dutch punk band I Against I, notorious for their two-album stint with Epitaph, and inclusion on Epitaph compilations Punk-O-Rama Vol. 3, and Punk-O-Rama Vol. 5, is releasing a new album, their first in 13 years.

Small Waves is set to drop on Friday, October 5, 2018 on White Russian Records, (Tasty!) and if you can’t get excited about the first ever European band to sign with Epitaph (Did I not mention that already?) coming out of retirement to put out some new tunes and get back out on the road, then, as we say in my hometown, Dallas, TX, “Partner, I don’t know what’s wrong with you.”

I’m going to go ahead and compare this album to the latest Descendents release, where these guys are older and wiser, but still ready to fuckin’ party! “Of course, our lives are totally different now from when we just started,” illuminates bass player Bob Hoorweg. “Back then we were kids. Now we have kids of our own, and jobs, and mortgages… and station wagons.” Singer/guitarist, Ronald van Maren adds, “Because our lives have changed so much, we now feel the need to play music as an outlet more than ever before.”

The band’s drummer Jasper Blazer (who has the coolest name ever, BTW) goes on, “That’s why we now play with an intensity that wasn’t always there in the past, but what’s really priceless is the fact that after all these years we are still the best of friends. Still searching for that perfect song. That’s worth more to us than any of our past achievements,” and it’s statements like that that really make this band appeal to me. ”We feel that our best work is yet to come, otherwise we would never have climbed on stage again. We’re really excited to play our new songs live,” and Dying Scene has them early, of course. Stream the new album, Small Waves, below.

Listen to the new Thrice album “Palms”

We’ve come along way from the days of “Identity Crisis,” punk fans. But to move forward it to progress and Thrice does exactly that on every single one of their releases. Their Epitaph Records debut, “Palms,” is no different, but if they’ve left their punk rock influences a little further in the dust, their angsty spirit is clearly still alive and well.

If you loved this band at any point over the last 20 years you owe it to yourself to give their new release at least one listen below.



If Punk Rock Holiday’s aftermovie doesn’t have you purchasing tickets to next year’s festival nothing will

It’s official, I’m going to next year’s Punk Rock Holiday. I don’t care that it’s halfway around the world in Slovenia. The festival released it’s traditional “aftermovie” and I’m not sure if its the footage or the fact that it features Chaser’s new track “The Show” but if this doesn’t convince you to go to next year’s festival nothing will.

DS Exclusive: No Real Hero premieres “The Forest” EP

Dying Scene is stoked to roll out the red-carpet premiere of Montreal band No Real Hero‘s new EP, The Forest, out September 6, 2018 on Thousand Islands Records. Pre-orders are on sale now and available hereThe Forest is a wonderful follow-up to their 2014 self-titled debut, which highlights the band revolving around heavy metal riffs and a punk rock attitude.

With The Forest, members of No Real Hero have garnished their sound splendidly, and evolved it into a much subtler simpatico development of punk rock with some of the band’s heavier influences than in their previous release, giving it some of those Fat Wreck Chords-esque characteristics we’ve all come to know and love, while still maintaining all the (abused) substance and charm of a good ol’ dirty rock and roll band. It’s a beautiful thing when a band finds itself and comes together, and The Forest wreaks of band maturation. So much for eternal adolescence, ehh guys?

Stream The Forest below.
