Bird Attack Podcast and Record Label launches

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.

You can check out their website and stream their first podcast episode right here.

Band Spotlight: Does It Matter

does-it-matterFans of metal-infused, melodic punk rock done 90’s style, get stoked because Jacksonville’s Does It Matter are breathing new life into the genre.  The band’s self-released debut album, “A Patriot’s Pride”, will easily hit home with any fans of the Fat Wreck or Epitaph rosters in the mid 90’s, fitting nicely somewhere between Strung Out’s “Another Day In Paradise” and RKL’s “Riches to Rags”.  Recently finishing a slew of dates with Guttermouth, Does It Matter are busy writing songs for a new album, which they hope to have released early next year.  Do yourself a massive favor and go listen to a couple songs on their MySpace.  The song “Mankind” is a classic!



Album Review: Does It Matter – “A Patriot’s Pride”

does-it-matter-a-patriots-pride1Does It Matter is a melodic metal-ish, punk/thrash band from Jacksonville, Florida. “A Patriot’s Pride” is their first release put out DIY because as yet the band remains unsigned, which is unbelievable to this reviewer.

Instrumentally these guys play fast, hard hitting, metal tinged punk rock.  Vocals are melodic, but in that gritty, angst filled style that give their songs a catchiness without losing that pissed-off edge.

“A Patriot’s Pride” tares through 10 fist pumping, steering wheel pounding anthems before winding down with an acoustic tune to close the album with.  These days, finding an album that you can listen to all they way through without being tempted to hit the skip button is rare.  To find that in an unsigned punk band is even more rare, but in “A Patriot’s Pride” Does It Matter proves it can still be done.

Literally every song on this album is great.  You might even say that most of the songs are Awesome, particularly the first 3 tracks.  The song “Mankind” made me want to quit my day job and start a record label just so I could sign them and be the first to hear more from them.  Most of you reading this won’t have heard of this band before but Does It Matter?  Hell no!  Go give this album a listen!
