Knockin’ Chucks (TX Pop-Punk) release “Can You Hear Me Knockin” LP (FFO The Queers, Descendents)

Texas punkers Knockin’ Chucks, are releasing their first official full-length, “Can You Hear Me Knockin’?”

The release is set for July 12 at Faust Tavern in San Antonio and judging by the first three songs streaming on their Bandcamp page, this one is going to knock your socks off, kiddos.

This is how Texas pop punks.

If you’ve been fucked over just once in your life then you’re probably going to love one or two of these tunes, with their pleasant blend of sparkling-eyed pop-punk charm and witty pessimism, throw in a dash of teenage insecurities, good booze and a party and, “Bam!” You’ve got Knockin’ Chucks. I get the feeling that this is what Mike Ness sounds like in a Ramone’s hoodie.

I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of this one. Stream the first three songs and pre-order below.

DS Exclusive: 2016 – A Year in Pictures (Jay Stone)

2016 might have been a multitude of suck for myriad reasons, but the music scene — and the live music scene in general — was nowhere on that list. Your friendly neighborhood Dying Scene editors continue to travel far and wide to try to not only take in as much local and national live music as possible, but to show you first-hand what we’ve been up to.

Because everybody loves year-end wrap up posts (you do still love year-end wrap up posts, right?) your photographer friends decided to pour through the thousands of photos we took this year and pare them down to highlight some of either the best ones, or our personal favorites. For yours truly, shows ran the gamut this year, from neighborhood bars and Elks Lodge basements to sold-out 2500 capacity nightclubs and, of course, the Warped Tour (I know, right?). The highlights were almost too numerous to name, although seeing The Falcon twice, The Loved Ones, Bob Mould, Chuck Ragan a few times, Descendents, NOFX, Teenage Bottlerocket, Lucero (twice), Against Me!, The Interrupters (twice), Bad Cop/Bad Cop, The Scandals a few times, Brian Fallon a few times, Cory Branan four times (in four states!), Laura Jane Grace and Off With Their Heads acoustic in the same year is pretty damn great, and only scratches the surface, really.

Also, for the second year in a row, I think I saw The Scandals’ Jared Hart more times in one year in one form or another than I’ve seen anybody else in a given year, although I may have topped that by probably seeing Rebuilder more times than I’ve seen my own mother. Sorry, ma!

Anyway, check out the gallery below, and stay tuned for more cool concert moments in 2017!



DS Staff Picks – GellmanB’s Top 10 Punk Albums of 2016

Hello, my name is Brian and I’m new to the DS team. I’ve been helping out here since July, and it’s been great. Although I am happy for this year to come to an end, it has been quite an interesting year for music, myself, and my friends. The picture above captures my boy Hunter and me scarfing on some legit NY pie this summer. Anyway, enough about me, let’s talk about MY top 10 punk records of the year. There were so many wonderful EPs this year, that I had to split up my list to cover what were some of my favorite, and most anticipated releases of the year.

Click here to see my top 10!



DS Staff Picks: Jay Stone picks his top sixteen albums of 2016 with Spotify playlist!

I’m not entirely sure how, but we’ve reached the middle of December 2016 without the Earth’s core opening up and swallowing us all down into the burning fiery furnace below. That can only mean one thing; it’s time for people who spend all year pretending to be entertainment journalists to narrow down the most entertaining things of the last 365 days into bite size pieces. And in list form! This is the sixth one of these I’ve done for Dying Scene, so the intro stuff might start to get a bit repetitive. As such, I’ll spare you my normal rambling 1500 word babble and jump in to the music itself. You’re welcome.

As is usually the case, I didn’t trim my list to ten, in spite of our esteemed leader, Johnny X, instructing us to do so. What can I say; I’m not a fan of restrictions, or base ten number systems. I thought there was something apropos about reclaiming the number 16 from the giant shitstorm that was this year. I also genuinely love all of the albums in my final list, and if I were to submit this list a week from now, the last half-dozen or so might be in a very different order. I did adhere to the instructions about keeping the list Dying Scene-relevant. If you’re into expanding horizons, you should check out Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide To Earth, Amanda Shires’ My Piece Of Land, Sadler Vaden’s self-titled album, David Bowie’s Blackstar, Wilco’s Schmilco, and probably a bunch of other mid-tempo stuff I’m forgetting.

As always, I didn’t include EPs, split-releases or live albums in my final list, because…because I didn’t. However, you should by no means skip toyGuitar‘s Move Like A Ghost, Useless ID‘s We Don’t Want The Airwaves and Dead To Me‘s I Wanna Die In Los Angeles on the EP front. You should also check out The Darlings‘ live album, and the Bundles/Dan Webb And The Spiders split 12-inch that came out a couple months ago. Oh, and Oklahoa’s Don’t Make Ghosts put out an EP, Death Ride, that’s easily one of the best debuts this year.

I did include tracks from all of the above, and obviously all of the below, on the Spotify playlist I curated for this story…scroll all the way down for that and hit “play.”

Check out my list below.

Descendents collaborate with San Diego brewery to create signature beer

California punk veterans the Descendents now have their own signature beer. The band collaborated with Mikkeller Brewery to create “Feel This,” a 7.3% coffee IPA named after a song from their latest album Hypercaffium Spazzinate. The beer debuts on November 4th at San Diego Beer Week and it will ship out to distribution outlets in 25 states across the US this week.

Here’s what Bill Batten of Mikkeller Brewing San Diego had to say about getting to collaborate with a legendary punk band like the Descendents:

“Having grown up in the punk rock and skate punk scene, it was an honor to be given the opportunity to create a beer for the Descendents to celebrate their recently released album. While doing this collaboration we got an opportunity to meet the Dark Matter boys and learn about their coffee process. Using their roasting profiles, in combination with our passion for hop-forward IPA’s, we were able to create a special beer as unique as the band.”

Hypercaffium Spazzinate was released on July 29th through Epitaph Records. It is the band’s first album in over a decade, serving as the follow-up to 2004’s Cool To Be You.
