Biffers cancel US tour after being denied entry to country

According to a recent post on their Facebook page, Italian pop-punks Biffers were denied entry to the US while going through customs at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport this past weekend because their “VISAs weren’t correct”.

Shortly after they began booking shows for the tour, the band found out their documentation wasn’t correct, but it was too late to apply for different VISAs. Apparently they knew this could potentially keep them from entering the country, but didn’t want to cancel the tour.

The Kung Fu Records band did end up getting turned away at the door, and they were put on a plane to London from where they could make their way home to Livorno. Needless to say, the tour was cancelled but Biffers plan to reschedule soon. Hopefully the next one goes better!

Album Review: Biffers – ‘Vice’

Everyone loves the 1990s. That’s just an inescapable truth. Between TV and movie remakes/sequels, entire TV stations dedicated to re-runs and endless Buzzfeed (and Buzzfeed knock-off websites) listicles, this love for the decade even permeates into punk rock. How many punk bands have popped up in the past decade that gain traction for sounding like a band that could’ve been signed to Epitaph or Fat Wreck Chords circa 1995? Hell, how many bands have we here at Dying Scene covered based around the fact that they sound like an Epi-Fat band?

In case you couldn’t tell where I’m going with this, Biffers have a sound heavily influenced by the California skate punk scene of the early 1990s. Their new album, Vice, is a perfectly fine album. 12 songs that average 2 and a half minutes, all played competently and they never venture into slow, adult contemporary jams that wax poetic. These are all things that one wants in a punk album, indebted to the 90s scene or not.

The only real issue with Vice is that is lacks a certain… I don’t know what, but it’s missing something. There are some punk albums that, regardless of innovation or not, can be listened to multiple times with great ease. Hopeless Romantic by The Bouncing Souls or Let’s Talk About Feelings by Lagwagon are great examples- neither album particularly pushed the genre forward, but once their final tracks ring out, there are times when you can’t get  the whole thing to start over again quickly enough. Vice is missing that same kind of replay value.

Not to say that it’s a chore to listen to Biffers. In fact, if they continue on the path that they’ve been traveling on both their debut album, Whoa! and now Vice, they’ll be writing their own Dookie (or at least their Punk In Drublic) in no time.

Biffers release new EP “Frankie Road”

Today, Italian pop-punk act Biffers have released a new EP titled Frankie Road. It was released digitally though Kung Fu Records, and will be released on vinyl (in three different variations) through Greenway Records. Check out the artwork to the left and the tracklisting below.

Kung Fu Records owner (and Vandal) Joe Escalante on the band : “They posted an amazing song right on our (Facebook) page.  They made it very easy for us. The Biffers are one of those bands, like the Ramones, wiht the ability to break down a genre, and build it back up again with an innocence and simplicity that was somehow lost along the way as others in the field have taken punk rock for granted. The result is a happy re-interpretation of punk rock where each song hits you like a shot of Galliano, which by no coincidence is distilled and bottled in The Biffers hometown.”

Frankie Road was released today, June 9, and serves as a follow-up to their 2013 debut album Whoa! which was re-released last year through Kung Fu Records. Purchase the new EP digitally through iTunes or Amazon, or pre-order the vinyl here.



Biffers sign to Kung Fu Records for re-release of debut album “Whoa!”

Italian pop-punk act Biffers have signed to Kung Fu Records with plans to re-release their awesome 2013 debut album Whoa! on August 5th, with European tours following shortly after. Here’s what label owner Joe Escalante had to say about signing the band:

“They posted an amazing song right on our page. They made it very easy for us. Biffers are one of those bands, like the Ramones, with the ability to break down a genre, and build it back up again with an innocence and simplicity that was somehow lost along the way as others in the field have taken punk rock for granted. The result is a happy re-interpretation of punk rock where each song hits you like a shot of Galliano, which by no coincidence is distilled and bottled in Biffers’ hometown. This album is a drinking game waiting to happen!”

Trust me, Joe’s not bullshitting you when he says this band’s great. If you haven’t heard Whoa! already, listen to it below and be sure to pick it up on vinyl or whatever Kung Fu releases it on in August.
