So here’s a new organization much in line with what Dying Scene is all about. Bird Attack is a new podcast and record label that has just launched with its first episode and a pretty killer roster of melodic/skate punk bands. Here’s a press snippet from Bird Attack themselves:
Established in 2012 and broadcasting out of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, Bird Attack Punk Rock Radio was founded by Garrett Wadford based on an absolute unwavering love for punk rock – Fast, Loud, Shredding, Melodic, Skate punk to be exact. “I consider the genre I love to be more of an underground group of bands that deserve to get more exposure. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Pennywise, Lagwagon, Strung Out (and other similar bands) with a passion, but the new music that really gets me fired up as of late, has a hint of metal to it, which brings an extra level of AMP! to the table.”
“I have always loved performing in some way shape or form, whether it has been on stage playing or behind the mic, focused on the voice only approach, so I decided to bring the music I was passionate about to the airwaves or internet-waves, as it has now morphed to a podcast.”
We are bringing new school punk mixed with the best older punk from as far back as 15 years, mixing it up with roughly 20 songs, throwing in a prank call, adding a dash of comedy and slamming the door shut with an insane interview from some of the best names in punk rock! These interviews range from different members of bands from across the spectrum; Pennywise to Lagwagon, Belvedere to Forus, Dutch Nuggets to Counterpunch. We are really turning up the quality this year.
Finally, the podcast is professionally produced, so whether you are playing it in your headphones or cranking it at your house or in your car, you are going to love the quality!
They haven’t announced any new releases yet but it looks like they’re helping to distribute previous releases from some great skate punk acts including Dutch Nuggets, The Human Project, Adrenalized, Forus, Does It Matter and Whaleface.
