Dual Music Video: Aficionado – “The Things You Like” / Self Defense Family – “I’m Going Through Some Shit “

What a unique way to release a music video. The recently disbanded Aficionado has released one final music video, featuring a performance of their song “The Things You Like” off of their self-titled album. As the band finishes their song, none other than Self Defense Family takes their place on stage and jump into their song “I’m Going Through Some Shit” from their 2011 7-inch of the same name.

The video was filmed at Valentine’s, in Albany, NY, although it was made to look like it was filmed for a fictional “Top of the Pops” esque TV show.  You can check it out below.

Aficionado split up earlier this year, their final release being 2011’s Aficionado on No Sleep Records.  Self Defense Family, meanwhile, will be releasing their next album Try Me on January 7th, 2014, through Deathwish Inc.

Aficionado throw in the towel

After 9 years of being a band, Albany NY’s Aficionado have announced they are officially calling it a day. Here’s what frontman Nick Warchol had to say:

“Since I was a kid, all I ever wanted to do was live the “band life”…revolve everything around music, do nothing but create, record, and then get in a van, travel around and play shows with my friends. For the past couple of years that was my life and I’m really grateful for that experience.

Thanks so much to Chris Hansen of No Sleep Records for taking a chance on us. Thanks to Phil Battiato at the Agency Group for working his ass off and getting us on a bunch of awesome tours. Thanks to anyone who ever cared about what we were doing, all the bands we’ve played with, all the people who ever came out to see us, everyone who gave us a place to crash, or supported us in any way.

I’d especially like to thank all past members who gave their time and energy to this project. I’m honored that I had the chance to make music with you assholes.

Sometime within the next couple of months there will probably be a last show here in Albany. Some of us, myself included, are going to continue on with a new musical projects of some kind. Stay tuned for those.

-Nick Warchol

Cover Art Battle (July 26th): Heartsounds, Black Veil Brides, Bomb The Music Industry, more… VOTE!!


Remember when buying an album meant something more than adding a dozen audio files to an already endless collection of impersonal mp3s? It was a time when liner notes actually got read and there was something really special about the art that graced an album’s cover. Today, in an industry dominated by iTunes and Pandora, it seems the cover art of an album is getting a little under-appreciated.

Well, we here at Dying Scene aren’t letting the art form die off so easily. Whether bizarre, beautiful, thought provoking, or hilarious, each Tuesday we will present the most interesting album covers of the week and let you readers vote on which one you think should win “Best Cover Art of the Week!”

Check out the offerings for the week of July 26th right here and get voting!
