DS Exclusive: Filthy Hearts (ffo: Against Me!) stream new single, “Ambulatory”

 

Filthy Hearts out of Denver, CO have a jaw-dropping new banger of a track they are releasing with Dying Scene today. They are a group of rogue punk rock beer warriors featuring ex-members of The Larimers and The A-OKs who are looking to take over the world with the sounds of a bedside battle ax, and a dissenting sentiment or three. Since the band’s onset in 2016 with the release of I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead (Inside) they’ve graced the ineffable stages of such DS favorites as The Lillingtons and Murderburgers, and caught the interest of Hidden Home Records who is putting out Filthy Hearts’ debut LP Beyond Repair this coming August 30th. No pre-orders available yet, but keep an eye out for packages dropping somewhere on the interwebs soon. (probably here) If you’re in Denver, then be shure and check out the pre-release party later this week on July 13 at The Moon Room, where a limited number of CD’s will be available for ONE TIME ONLY before the official release date.

And what’s this song that we are talking about anyway? But, of course! It’s called “Ambulatory”, and you can stream that track below.

From the band: “Ambulatory is about the struggle of becoming a better person. It’s about how you have to let things go and do things differently because it’s such a waste of time to be bitter and hateful. It’s about bettering yourself among people who may not want to change and so you have to let them go. I just don’t want to be bitter and mean my whole life and that’s something I have struggled with in the past.”



Down I Go (Experimental / Hardcore) release surprise EP, “All Down the Church in Midst of Fire the Hellish Monster Flew, and Passing Onward to the Quire, He Many People Slew”

Inimitable UK experimental hardcore trio Down I Go have released a surprise new EP.

Thef tracker carries the catchy monicker of “All Down the Church in Midst of Fire the Hellish Monster Flew, and Passing Onward to the Quire, He Many People Slew”, and tackles “shadowy figures of death from around the world” (the band have previously taken on the likes of Greek Gods and Tyrants on their releases).

It further cements their status as a cult UK band, and is well worth checking out if you like your punk conceptual and off-the-wall.

Introducing Sub Dio (aggressive South Bay punk rock)

Today, I’m happy to introduce Sub Dio, a band that consists of a lot of familiar faces from the Bay Area punk scene. Featuring former members of Great Apes, The Ghost, and Reunions, Sub Dio play a brand of punk that is rooted in urgency and aggression. Their self-titled debut will release on July 19th via Underground Communique and Side With Us Records, but you can get a preview of what’s to come by listening to “Skeeters.” The song is a direct response to predatory, parasitic, and incessant behavior many men feel entitled to exhibit towards women. Brian and Danica’s dual vocal approach is a shot to the gut and demands your attention. Give it a listen below.

This EP includes five aggressive songs that set an urgent and relentless pace that pull you through from start to finish. The anger fueling Sub Dio’s lyrics are inspired by Danica’s work as a Bay Area social justice lawyer and time working to end mass incarceration and the criminalization of poverty. Brian’s history of thematic lyrics have always brought a unique feel to his songs, which are also undoubtedly influenced by his job as a South San Francisco middle school teacher.

Brian and Danica trade vocals to create a powerful audio counterbalance between her fierce screams and Brian’s guttural yet melodic voice. The way each vocalist occupies completely separate spectrums while still melding together in a unique way bring to mind early Fugazi records.



Introducing New Punk Act: Fine Dining (FFO older Rise Against)

Remember when Rise Against was a little more edgy and a little less radio friendly? I miss that stage of the band, and if you do too then I’ve got a new group for you to check out. Spinning out of South Bay, Los Angeles Fine Dining isn’t breaking any molds with their style, but they’re certainly doing the genre justice. Speed, melodic aggression, gang shouts… If that’s the stuff that floats your boat like it does mine I recommend you check the band out via the music video and a full stream of their debut EP, “Grass Fed Tunes,” below.



Stringer and fans posthumously complete music video for “Through The Walls” after untimely death of lead singer

In a joint statement, the surviving members of Brooklyn, NY indie rock band Stringer say, “Mark Fletcher, our brother and bandmate passed on Feb. 19th, 2019. For six years we made music. We lived our lives together with a bond that can only be forged by the most intense and ecstatic experiences, we spoke in our own language. Mark and filmmaker Chris Elia made this video featuring a collection of strangers and his best friends singing his words. We think this is fitting because Mark made friends so easily and it didn’t take long for a stranger to become a best friend.”

Elia, a longtime friend of the band and frequent collaborator adds, “When Mark was in the Bay Area this past winter, he used his camera phone (as well as his outgoing & charming personality) to start filming the 1st verse in my old neighborhood. We spent literal hours talking on the phone during his trip, part of which involved his vision for a lyric video. He was so ecstatic about the initial rough cut I had sent him, so I can only imagine the happiness it would have brought him to see the completed video full of familiar faces singing his song.”

Watch Stringer’s ‘Through The Walls’ video below.

Members of Stringer, along with family and friends of Mark’s have also banded together to launch The Mark Fletcher Studio, a non-profit that has been set up in his memory. Stringer’s practice room in Bushwick, Brooklyn has been refitted to host analog recorded sessions that are free for artists.

The band adds, “We are running this studio solely on community donations so any help is greatly appreciated! Even $5 or $10 will go a long way. Please donate here.

Produced by Adam Reich (So So Glos, ex-Titus Andronicus), Stringer’s critically-acclaimed album ‘My Bad’ was released in July on Wiretap Records.
