DS Exclusive: Dead Neck (UK) and Actionmen (Italy) Stream “Defections” Split

Two of Europe’s finest melodic hardcore bands have united on record and DyingScene is proud to give you lot a sneak peak of the results 24 hours before release day.

The UK’s Dead Neck and Italy’s Actionmen will release Defections tomorrow with the help of Germany’s Mud Cake Records. You can pick up a copy from the label’s website, and pre-orders currently live.

The split effort opens with five experimental, hyper-technical jams from Actionmen who once again display their off-the-wall approach to song writing and virtuosity on record.

Closing out the split is Dead Neck with five tracks that feel like they pick up where the band’s recently re-issued self-titled debut EP left off. It’s rapid, aggressive, oh so melodic, and offers its own share of technicality to boot.

We asked the two bands to say something about the new release. Both were good enough to give a brief description of each of the tracks appearing on Defections. You can find out exactly what inspired each band’s contributions to the split whilst listening to the entire thing below.

DS Exclusive: Actionmen (Italy) Premiere New Single “Lion” From Upcoming Split With Dead Neck

Ravenna, Italy’s Actionmen have announced a new split album titled Defections which will also feature UK punks Dead Neck. When we asked the trio about the new track they told us, “It’s about (frontman/guitarist) Matteo. When he’s high, he feels himself like a lion, the symbol in the animal kingdom of majesty and beauty. He feels so good looking and sexy, and when he gets out, he feels himself observed by everybody. In the song (and in reality) he asks himself if people stare at him because he’s high or because he’s gorgeous, somewhere between reality and dream, expectations and fears ‘I’m doomed to be gorgeous’… Is it a stoned guy’s delirium or a stoned guy taking conscience?” Holy shit! We gotta get to Italy to party with these fuckers because they sound nuts! Hear what all the fuss is about, below!
