They’re also going to give their shitty opinions of the most noteworthy scene news from the last few weeks that you were probably too lazy to read, so there’s that, too… All of that and more in Episode 16 of Dying Scene Radio!

Milo Aukerman hopes Descendents will record new music later this year

In a recent interview with Kerrang!, Descendents frontman Milo Aukerman confirmed that they are indeed writing new material for the band’s follow-up to 2016’s Hypercaffium Spazzinate. He’s quoted as saying:

“We’re currently writing. We tend to write a variety of stuff, which for me personally tends to range from love songs to hyper-fast songs about coffee, which we still do. So we continue to mine our background in early LA punk rock pretty heavily. I still like to write that kind of music because for me it’s the best way of getting my point across powerfully. But right now Stephen [Egerton, guitarist] and I have written about 21 songs, and we’re waiting for songs from Bill and Karl [Alvarez, bassist]. We’re kind of weird because everyone in the band writes, so we’re just waiting til everyone has finished up with their compliment of songs and then we’ll be putting another record out. I hope that we’ll start recording it later in the year.”

Exactly when the next Descendents record will be released is unknown at this point. Fans had to wait nine years for 1996’s Everything Sucks, eight years for 2004’s Cool to Be You and then twelve years for Hypercaffium Spazzinate, but over a month ago, Milo promised that it won’t be too long before the arrival of the next album.



Descendents are working on new music, says Milo Aukerman

Descendents frontman Milo Aukerman confirmed in an interview with OC Register that a new album from the band is on the way. Fans had to wait nine years for 1996’s Everything Sucks, eight years for 2004’s Cool to Be You and then twelve years for 2016’s Hypercaffium Spazzinate, but Milo promises that it won’t be too long before the next record arrives.

He’s quoted as saying, “When we put out the last record we thought, ‘OK, I bet we could put out another record after this one and not wait a decade to do it.’ It was such a rewarding experience and you know what? Our fans deserve better. They deserve more than a record every decade or so. We started writing almost immediately after that record was done. I have been writing and Stephen (Egerton) has really picked up the mantle, too. Between us I think we have like 20 songs written and Bill (Stevenson) and Karl (Alvarez) have been writing songs as well. We’ve done some basic tracking, but it’s still a work in progress but I hope we’ll have something out by the end of the year.”

We’ll keep you posted as more details on the next Descendents record come to light.

Punk Rock Bowling 2019 Lineup Announced (Rancid, Descendents and a Crap-Ton More)

We’re six months out from the 2019 installment of Punk Rock Bowling, so you know what that means…it’s lineup announcement time!

As you can see from the epic poster above, the festival, now in its 21st year, takes place in Las Vegas next Memorial Day weekend (May 24 – 27th). The lineup is as strong as ever, with headline performances from Rancid, Descendents and The Specials and it seems to me that it’s a deeper lineup this year with a heavier nod toward the classics than the early announcements of the last couple of years. There also don’t seem to be many – if any – repeats from last year at first glance, meaning it’ll be a totally new experience with a seemingly endless run of bands young and old, big and small (shoutout to my pals in Street Dogs and Louise Distras for getting the call to go back and for local buds Radiator Rattlers for getting their first crack at the PRB goodness). Head here for full ticket info, and start saving your pennies!

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.
