The Muffs announce first album in five years, “No Holiday”

Southern California icons The Muffs have announced their new album, the first in five years, titled No Holiday. Out on October 18th, the album will feature 18 songs, written between 1991 and 2017. That’s a long time to wait to record something!

Drummer Roy McDonald adds, “I think No Holiday is the most unique album we’ve ever made — 18 songs that run the spectrum from full-blown productions to intimate home recordings. This was a labor of love for us and I think that comes out in the record. We wanted to create something lasting and special. I, for one, couldn’t be happier with the results.”

You can watch a trailer for the album below.

NOFX release new single “Fish In A Gun Barrel” (proceeds going to Moms Demand Action)

Ahead of the band’s upcoming album, NOFX have released a brand new single titled “Fish In A Gun Barrel.” In an intro to the song Fat Mike explains that the song was written in 2016 but the band held off on releasing it due to it hitting a little too close to home so soon after the Vegas shootings. Given the recent spate of gun violence in the US earlier this month, the band decided to use the track to help raise funds for Moms Demand Action, a grassroots movement fighting for public safety measures that protect people from gun violence.

Check out the song, along w/ Fat Mike’s introduction below.

NOFX last released Ribbed – Live in a Dive in 2018 via Fat Wreck Chords. Their last studio output was First Ditch Effort in 2016.

DS Exclusive: Doc Hammer stream “Vamparty Diaries” off upcoming LP, “Neon Devil”

Calling all party punks! You’re invited to a vamparty, which is kind of like a van-party with less sucking… or MORE! I don’t know, but Dying Scene is ON THE FUCKING GUEST LIST, and we’re thrilled to be taking all out readers along to crash this sucker with us. Figuratively, of course, we’re actually almost never on the guest list for anything. Remember that, and make sure and tip your bartenders and hook up your neighborhood volunteer punk rock journalists every time ya’ get the chance.

Doc Hammer is a hardcore rock and roll five-piece led by front-man Josh Ravin who is “all about letting loose and letting go.” For fans of Dillinger Escape Plan, the band claims they are “equal parts party/ equal parts metal for the people.” They will be releasing their first full length album, Neon Devil, on Paper + Plastick Records Sept. 1, which should then be available on all the regular streaming platforms. Dying Scene is stoked to bring you the early release of Doc Hammer’s newest single off  Neon Devil titled “Vamparty Diaries”, today.

“As veterans of the music industry, the dudes of Doc Hammer are no strangers to the scene, evidenced by the grit and sense of determination felt in all their songs. Their driving guitar riffs and catchy, anthem-like hooks create a harmonious blend of hardcore and rock n’ roll. With live shows notorious for their energy and spirit, Doc Hammer is setting a new standard for rock n’ roll. Be it jumping into and playing inside the crowd or crawling around and hanging from the rafters, Doc Hammer is all about stirring it up and starting the party.” (EPK)

Following the release of Neon Devil,  Doc Hammer will be embarking on an eleven-date tour along the west coast (U.S.) before returning to their San Diego home where they can be found tapping kegs and Magic The Gathering cards (apparently) for the forseeable furture. Check out that tour schedule and stream “Vamparty Diaries” below.
