Red Scare Roundup! (How much punk can you take?)

Our stalwart comrades at Red Scare Industries have plenty going on lately.

If you haven’t heard, Nothington put out their new album, “In the End” in February, and everyone (including myself, and I’m a pretty cool dude, just ask my high school English teacher) thinks it’s great. It’s easily one of my favorites in years.

Red Scare also released a 7″ for the single “Cobblestones” from the new album for Record Store Day. They still have some copies left at the Red Scare webstore.

Speaking of buying rad music that your brain needs, Red Scare has unfurled their mighty bandcamp page, where you can pre-order The Lillingtons upcoming EP, Project 313. It’s their first release in 11 years and is due out in June. The teaser has me.. teased. Check it out below.

DS Photo Gallery & Show Review: Nothington / The Bombpops / Western Settings (The Hi Hat – Los Angeles 3/29/2017)

Jay Northington of Nothington

We imagine that Wednesday night shows are hit or miss in most places, but in Los Angeles, the prospects are even more bleak. However, every once in awhile, there comes a lineup so good that even Humpday can’t put a damper on the turn out. This was one of those shows, drawing an impressively sized crowd that even drew fellow punk artists, with members of Get Dead and True Rivals among the audience. Hell, Dying Scene even had two staffers in the bouse for this one! Read the review and check out the photo gallery (nearly a month after the show…really, AP?) from this incredible mid-week performance below!



New Music Teaser: The Lillingtons – “Project 313”

 

Awwwwwwe yeah, boys and girls! New music from The Lillingtons is finally (almost) here.

It’s not much to go on, but the Wyoming-based pop-punk trailblazers have unveiled a thirty-second teaser video for what is being dubbed “Project 313,” featuring a snippet of what appears to be the title track to whatever the release of the same name ends up becoming (EP, 7-inch, full-length, etc).

The only other info we learn is that Project 313, which we’re assuming is not the soundtrack to the remake of the 2006 crime drama of the same name, is due out in June 2017 on Red Scare Industries. Check out the teaser below!

The only other material The Lillingtons have released since their 2006 full-length The Too Late Show was the song “Pyramids” that was released on Red Scare’s 10th anniversary compilation.

DS Exclusive: Nothington Streams “End Transmission” From New LP “In The End”

Six years doesn’t seem like a long time unless that period is devoid of new music from San Fran punk rockers Nothington, then it can seem painfully slow. Even though their last album, Borrowed Time (released in 2011) is incredibly infectious and has sky high replay value, it was time for something new. Well, our prayers were answered and they’ve finally returned with a brand new album, In The End which released digitally last week. In advance of the physical copy release this Friday, the Bay Area boys sent us a track from the LP to stream exclusively for Dying Scene readers! The single, “End Transmission” features the signature, rugged vocals of Mr. Northington, blended with impeccably written melodies and unadulterated, classic punk rock riffs. AHHHHH! That’s the good stuff! Get your fix, below.

Album Review: MakeWar – “Developing a Theory of Integrity”

Developing a Theory of Integrity is proof that Red Scare is a punk rock tastemaker. They’re what Fat Wreck was to the scene in the 90s, standing alongside the greats of No Idea and Epitaph as labels with a specific vision of what punk rock should be. I mean, this is a release I only listened to because I saw it announced on Red Scare’s website; one year ago, I’d never heard of MakeWar— now, they’re one of my favorites of the year. See? Tastemakers.

That isn’t to shift all the credit of this release from the artist to the label, but it does bear to mention the “Red Scare Sound.” MakeWar fit in with the lineage just fine, playing heartfelt melodic punk with huge hooks and cherry songwriting. They also have an interesting story, being a band of South American immigrants. But, front and center of Developing a Theory of Integrity are the songs, and it’s the anthemic choruses, with all their wistful and resistant energy that give this release it’s legs.

MakeWar’s lyrical topics aren’t new. Being a twenty-something living an extended and booze-filled adolescence is a well-tread melodic punk trope. But, as with anything, it’s all in the approach. Songwriter Jose Prieto has a knack for imagery that makes his songs about more than just fuck-ups fucking up. And what makes it all work is that he captures the youthful enthusiasm of drinking and partying with friends, and lets tomorrow’s regret creep right along side the empty cans and high-fives. The opening lines of the first track, “Matador Pool Party,” set up the juxtaposition: “Summer is showing her feet, at my doorstep but not coming in. Creeping with sunny flares out my window, while pissing all over the streets.” Even within the scene-setting, Prieto opens us up to the summer and all it’s positive associations, while never letting it become too idyllic.

“Ode” might just be the anthem of the year for me, with perhaps one of the most-singalongable hooks in beard punk history. “I can’t fall asleep, so many demons inside of me, I hope they die, with this shot of whiskey,” is destined to be communally screamed and toasted at live shows for years to come. “Sallie” is another tune made for weekend nights with it’s rallying cry of “fuck nine to five!” With lines like these, Developing a Theory of Integrity coalesces into the ultimate cut-loose album. It’s unapologetically relatable, attacking its cliches with as much gusto as poetry.

It’s bands like MakeWar that keep me in the fold. Every once and awhile, a new songwriting talent emerges and reminds you why you stick around in the first place. It all comes down to recognition. It’s that epiphany in a song, when you’re bobbing your head and you hear that exact couplet that you needed to hear at that exact time. It’s when you recognize a feeling, given muscle and bone through art. Developing A Theory of Integrity is a collection of feelings, as genuine and loud as they come.

5/5
