DS Exclusive: Doc Hammer stream “Vamparty Diaries” off upcoming LP, “Neon Devil”

Calling all party punks! You’re invited to a vamparty, which is kind of like a van-party with less sucking… or MORE! I don’t know, but Dying Scene is ON THE FUCKING GUEST LIST, and we’re thrilled to be taking all out readers along to crash this sucker with us. Figuratively, of course, we’re actually almost never on the guest list for anything. Remember that, and make sure and tip your bartenders and hook up your neighborhood volunteer punk rock journalists every time ya’ get the chance.

Doc Hammer is a hardcore rock and roll five-piece led by front-man Josh Ravin who is “all about letting loose and letting go.” For fans of Dillinger Escape Plan, the band claims they are “equal parts party/ equal parts metal for the people.” They will be releasing their first full length album, Neon Devil, on Paper + Plastick Records Sept. 1, which should then be available on all the regular streaming platforms. Dying Scene is stoked to bring you the early release of Doc Hammer’s newest single off  Neon Devil titled “Vamparty Diaries”, today.

“As veterans of the music industry, the dudes of Doc Hammer are no strangers to the scene, evidenced by the grit and sense of determination felt in all their songs. Their driving guitar riffs and catchy, anthem-like hooks create a harmonious blend of hardcore and rock n’ roll. With live shows notorious for their energy and spirit, Doc Hammer is setting a new standard for rock n’ roll. Be it jumping into and playing inside the crowd or crawling around and hanging from the rafters, Doc Hammer is all about stirring it up and starting the party.” (EPK)

Following the release of Neon Devil,  Doc Hammer will be embarking on an eleven-date tour along the west coast (U.S.) before returning to their San Diego home where they can be found tapping kegs and Magic The Gathering cards (apparently) for the forseeable furture. Check out that tour schedule and stream “Vamparty Diaries” below.



Patent Pending (pop punk) release first original song in four years

The last release from the band was a cover album ‘Other People’s Greatest Hits’ in 2017. There is yet no mention as to whether this new song will feature on a more substantial release in the near future.
