The Burnt Tapes (punk rock) announce full length and release video for ‘Yuzi’

London band The Burnt Tapes will release their debut LP “Never Better” on February 22, 2019 via Wiretap Records (US) and Lockjaw Records (UK/EU).

Lead singer Phil Georgoulopoulos said the following about the album’s lead single “Yuzi”:

“Yuzi is about putting the puzzle of yourself back together after the end of a relationship you thought defined you. That’s kinda the theme throughout our songs in many ways, and the video ties in a lot of those themes but mainly its about finding a place where you can finally find some peace.”

Watch the video below.

The band (originally from Greece) have worked tirelessly on the UK scene over the past few years and it’s encouraging to see them doing so well. They have honed their sound and their live show has gotten stronger and stronger. Expect to see some big tour announcements from them soon.



DS Exclusive: Fastfade (ffo: old Blink 182, Lagwagon) stream new album, “Happy If You Aren’t”

STTOOOKKKAAAGGEE!!… Oh, sorry. Is this thing typing? My cat just crossed the keys – a Cheshire cat – and out the front door. No worries, though. This band seems perfectly capable of chasing after it.

Fastfade are a group of well-meaning young F.S.P’s (fast sloppy punks) out of London kicking some cool palm-mutes and starry-eyed riffs, aggressive basslines with big-band breakdowns, and a drummer who, as far as my drummer fetish is concerned, kind of does it for me with his sped up, pop-punk simplicity. With sophistication in simpatico skate punk delivery, Fastfade can go “boo boo da, boo boo da” on the snare drum of my heart all day long, and maybe/maybe not, I let them get away with it.

This is one for the snotty-nosed and broken-hearted – fourteen tracks of progressive pop punk blending the best of those great bands we’re all so comfortable with under the covers, but when it comes to date-night, “Yeah, they were good until Dookie came out.” Relax. Fastfade is all “Netflix and chill.” No reason to be antsy. These are the golden daze. Backing vocals are on point throughout, with moments of power-pop undertones reminding us that skateboarders get to have friendships and girlfriends too, sometimes, like that night you went to bed with Tell All Your Friends and realized that the back-and-forth was actually pretty pleasant… Maybe it was just beer goggles. Songs like “Naked Attraction” are supplemented with All-esque inspired riffage, where happy/poppy tunes capitulate to themes of overthinking, loneliness and being a fucking weirdo. “These days in between/ strung out on caffeine/ making sense of what don’t make sense to me.”

Fastfade is coming of age. Hell, if they ever make it stateside, these boys are going to need a friendly liaison at the bar. I know you’ll be there when the time is right. Their new album, Happy If You Aren’t, releases December 14 on Umlaut Records and is available here for pre-order. You can stream that album below, and if not… then why not just help me kill myself, then? ‘Cause that’s what’s gonna fucking happen. Gawd. WTF!? Peace.

Inside All Silk Mastering House With Ed Hall (Egos At The Door): Interview, Live Session Premiere

We spend a lot of time covering music here at Dying Scene and not so much looking at the people behind the sounds. Today, we’re going to buck that trend with an interview with mastering engineer and owner of the All Silk Mastering House, Ed Hall.

Ed has spent most of his life in and around the DIY punk scene in the north of England. He’s probably best known as guitarist with the recently disbanded, hugely underrated techcore proggers, Egos At The Door. With Egos, Ed has travelled across Europe and America, allowing him to build a strong network of contacts from the international punk scene.

His latest venture involved the creation of a sonic fantasy lab in an undisclosed location in Colne, Lancashire in the north of the UK. Ed was kind enough to share his experiences setting up the All Silk Mastering House, which has been a complete DIY effort. From construction and decorating, through to fitting the space out with all the necessary gear and, of course, the mastering itself, Ed handles the entire process. He’s an inspiration to all those who long to cast off the shackles of the daily grind and chase their dreams but lack the gusto to take that initial plunge.

Below, you’ll find an interview with Ed, as well as an exclusive look at his latest project – a regular live session from the All Silk Mastering House floor itself. We’ve also thrown in an example of Ed’s recent work with UK garage punks SWEARS’s latest single, Space Invaders.

BK Punks THICK Release Video For “Lyfe”

Brooklyn punks THICK released the video for their newest single “Lyfe” at Brooklyn Bazaar on December 8. I don’t want to overstate how good I think THICK is, so lets just put it this way …. get on that wave right now because THICK is the new religion and it’s not going anywhere but up from here.

THICK is already one of the most exciting bands in the BK and it’s only a matter of time before their infectious sound crosses the East River and spreads through The Big Apple like a plague of ass-kicking destruction. THICK may not be reinventing the wheel with their pop-punk tunes but what they are doing is bringing a whole new energy and attitude to the genre.

Glass Slipper, Fat Heaven, and Whiner acted on support on THICKs big night in Greenpoint.



Leftover Crack Owns New York City

Leftover Crack put on a command performance for a sold-out crowd in their hometown on December, 3,  just a few short days after dropping a new record. Sturg and the gang rocked the hordes of Crack Rock Steady fans at Brooklyn Bazaar into a punk induced sweat laced frenzy touching on all the CRS hits. Stza Crack can be a bit of a prima donna at times but acting as the ringleader of a raucous punk rock circus like the one they put on in the BK, the Crack Daddy had no problem rising to the occasion.

Leftover Crack is being joined on tour by Midwest hardcore legends Negative Approach and New Jersey wildmen Crazy and the Brains, and also had Brooklyn’s Cop/Out and (A)Truth out as local support.

Check out the full show review below.
