Stream the new Pennywise album “Never Gonna Die”

It’s getting late down here in Africa but I’m a little disappointed my team of DSers missed this story earlier so sometimes you just gotta take matters into your own hands… If you haven’t heard it yet, I invite any of you punks who at one point in your lives enjoyed Pennywise to check out “Never Gonna Die” below. It’s the first album with original vocalist Jim Lindberg back on vocal duty in over a decade and it does not disappoint.



Pennywise stream “Won’t Give Up the Fight” off upcoming coming album

Check out “Won’t Give Up the Fight” below!



Pennywise streams new song “Live While You Can” off upcoming album “Never Gonna Die” (it’s good!)

I have to admit, I was a little “meh” when I listened to the first single Pennywise streamed from their upcoming come-back album “Never Gonna Die.” Being the first new Lindberg fronted Pennywise material in over a decade I had high hopes but the track just didn’t do much for me. I’m happy to say, however, that with this second single, they’ve completely redeemed themselves! “Live While You Can” is the Lindberg Pennywise track I’ve been waiting to hear for over ten years and I recommend you give it a listen at peek volume below.

“Never Gonna Die” will be released April 20th via longtime home Epitaph Records.

“Never Gonna Die” will serve as a follow-up to 2014’s retrospective album Yesterdays. Before that the band had released “All Or Nothing” with Zoli Teglas on vocal duty during a temporary rift with Lindberg.



Pennywise and Strung Out announce Ontario and Quebec tourdates

Tuesday morning Canadianity check in. Pennywise and Strung Out have announced a string of shows in Ontario and Québec. It’s not often Pennywise or Strung Out make the trek to this part of Canada so move quick on tickets or be left wondering what could have been.

Pennywise announce new album “Never Gonna Die”, streams title track

Aaaaand, it’s finally here. The first new Jim Lindberg fronted Pennywise album to be released in 10 years! The band has just announced that on April 20th they will be releasing “Never Gonna Dia” via longtime home Epitaph Records. Get yourself fired up by streaming the album’s title track while you read through the band’s upcoming tour dates below.

“The goal of the song is to try and get young people to finally say enough, and that the system isn’t working,” Lindberg states. “It’s going to take a massive evolutionary shift in consciousness to change it, starting with the youth, because unless we do, we’ll just have more of the same carnage we’ve seen happening all over the world reincarnated with every new generation.”

“Never Gonna Die” will serve as a follow-up to 2014’s retrospective album Yesterdays. Before that the band had released “All Or Nothing” with Zoli Teglas on vocal duty during a temporary rift with Lindberg.

DS Exclusive: My Year in Photos 2017 (Meredith Goldberg)

2017 provided me many great opportunities to document the punk rock scene. Most especially, the punk rock scene in my adopted city of Chicago. For my compilation of my favorite images of 2017, I am including a mix of my faves from both veterans bands well known nationally and even internationally; and upstart groups grinding out their place in the punk rock world. I also am including images both published here, heretofore not featured in any online or hard copy publications. These were exciting and compelling shows. If you see any of these bands (hover over pictures in the gallery to catch the names) coming through your city, town; or general area I suggest checking them out! Check out the full gallery below!



Pennywise finish new album, spring 2018 release expected

Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge recently told OC Weekly that the band has finished recording their long-awaited new album, soon to be mixed for a potential spring 2018 release. He stated:

“It’s already done, just waiting for it to be mixed. We have about 15 songs in the can. One of them is called “American Lies,” if you want some inspiration it’s right there, a song Jim wrote and I think you can probably figure out what the song is about from the title alone. We’ve got a raging fast album that I feel like is our best work since Full Circle and Straight Ahead. We’re able to go back to the old school vibe and that’s hard to do. Bands try to go back and recreate their first or second albums and somehow this time we stumbled across an old formula that really worked. It’s aggressive and has a lot of cool lyrics. We’re looking forward to getting it out there around March. We don’t have a title for it yet but we’re meeting this week to put the finishing touches on it and get another one out there for the masses.”

Pennywise’s recent most recent album, Yesterdays, was released in 2014 on Epitaph. The band last released the compilation album, Nineteen Eighty Eight, in May 2016 via Hardline Entertainment.



DS Photo Gallery: Riot Fest Chicago – Day 3 (Jawbreaker, Hot Water Music, The Flatliners, The Menzingers and more)

The weekend of September 15-17 saw the annual return of Riot Fest. Riot Fest 2017 was held for the 12th consecutive year in Chicago and for the third consecutive year in Douglas Park. Once again, Riot Fest saw an eclectic crowd turn out, including multiple generations of families. You can check out our coverage of day one here and our shots from day two here, but we, like Riot Fest organizers this year, certainly saved the best for last. 

While last year’s Riot Fest included a Danzig-led Misfits reunion that was noteworthy in its own right, this year’s headline reunion band felt somewhat bigger and more important in a lot of ways. There’s a giant faction of the punk rock scene that’s effectively been the House That Jawbreaker built, and that was certainly reflected in this particular day’s lineup. There’s a direct sonic and stylistic connection from newly-reformed trio, playing only their third show in over two decades, to bands like Hot Water Music to more recent torch-bearers like The Flatliners and The Menzingers. All of the above were on display on a hot and sweaty third-and-final day of Riot Fest 2017, marking a notable past, present and future that seemed to find each generation drawing inspiration from the others.

But wait, there was plenty of other punk rock history to go around! GWAR have kept on keeping on following the death of frontmonster Dave Brockie a few years ago, and have been Riot Fest regulars for years. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones made another stop on their Let’s Face It 20-year celebration shows that’ll wind down with this year’s Hometown Throwdown around Christmastime. Pennywise, who will be celebrating their thirtieth birthday as a band next year, played one of the weekend’s best-received sets. Check out our full photo rundown below!

Show Review: Rebellion Festival Day 1

DS recently attended the annual, 4 day punk rock extravaganza that is Rebellion Festival in Blackpool, North West England. Read the first of our reviews of the festival below – looking back at the ridiculously strong line up on day 1.

Rebellion – Day 1

High summer in the UK is unpredictable down in London. One day it’s beautiful, sunbathing weather. The next it’s pissing it down. But, in Blackpool, as a soft southerner, you can be sure to be freezing, regardless of the fact its early August. You find yourself swept off your feet by the blasting wind and greeted by people in t-shirts looking at you funny for shivering. Luckily, the annual pilgrimage up there is for Rebellion – the unique, 4 day punk festival held in the cavernous Winter Gardens. And a couple of us were there for Dying Scene. [Continued below]
