Antillectual release “Truth Hits Everybody” (The Police Cover)

Antillectual have released the third instalment of their ongoing singles series, this time opting to release a cover of The Police. The track, “Truth Hits Everybody”, is out now in all the usual places.

Antillectual guitarist Willeme explains the decision to put covers in with their own material in the series:

“We wanted to experiment and record other people’s music. Most of the bands we grew up on are still around or reunited, but we didn’t feel like covering bands that are still active. It was much more interesting to go back one more generation and find early punk songs with a modern melodic vibe to them. Truth Hits Everybody was the first song that came to mind. From the first time I heard it, it felt like something that would match with our own style very well. Not surprisingly the song appeared to be in a key we use a lot ourselves.”

The video for the track is shot in Antillectual’s hometown Nijmegen and was inspired by The Pomusic video for So Lonely, also from The Police’s debut album Outlandos d’Amour from 1978. That album was also the inspiration for the artwork of the single, created by Andy Dahlström (Satanic Surfers’ bass player). The audio is recorded by the band’s sound tech, Emiel Thoonen. Mixing and additional instruments are done by Menno Bakker who also recorded Antillectual’s debut album Silencing Civilization and many legendary Dutch punk bands such as Undeclinable Ambuscade, NRA and Seein’ Red. Carl Saff (Iron Chic, Touché Amore, Small Brown Bike) did the mastering of the track.

DS Exclusive: Urban Outfielders (Baseball Punx) Premiere “Where Did He Go (Tito)” In Tribute to Former Bandmate

Baseball punkers Urban Outfielders are releasing their new single “Where Did He Go (Tito)” tomorrow (March 22nd) on all major streaming platforms. The single comes from their new EP, Out of This World, which is slated for release on April 22nd. You can hear the single one day early at Dying Scene exclusively, though!

The song serves as a tribute to their fallen outfielder and bandmate, Tito Rogers. Rogers disappeared tragically last year in a flash of light after leaving the dugout earlier than advised. The band believes extra terrestrial motives may be at play here.

Out of This World will be out on April 22nd via Hidden Home Records. Listen to the new single “Where Did He Go (Tito)” below.

Guerilla Poubelle (punk) release video for “Golgotha”

French punks Guerilla Poubelle have released a new video for their song “Golgotha”. Guitarist and singer Till had this to say about the new video: “Here’s our new video, we used footage for the Carpenter movie ‘They Live’ (or ‘Invasion Los Angeles’ as they named it in France, don’t ask me why!), what a delight to watch our hero finds out about capitalism and punching cops, destroying a bank and rampaging a TV station building.” The stirring video is about as punk as it comes and features the iconic Rowdy Roddy Piper, and I’m pretty sure you can’t argue with a Canadian who wore a kilt to the squared circle.

Along with the new video, Guerilla Poubelle has announced a tour through Europe with label-mates Arms Aloft.

You can check out the new video and tour dates below.

This is the first new material from Guerilla Poubelle since their acclaimed album La Nausée was released back in 2017. 



TSOL release video for cover of Amerie’s “1 Thing”

Southern California punk legends TSOL have released a video for their surprising cover of Amerie’s 2005 hit “1 Thing”. Frontman Jack Grisham says, “I like go-go music and soul and anything that really moves. I first heard Amerie’s “1 Thing” in 2005, when it was released. Fucking infectious man, the way that groove keeps rolling, and she’s such a great vocalist. The lyrics were your basic relationship trip but then it hit me, this isn’t just a song about some dude, these lyrics read like a song to a system or a government that’d been up to no good. When she sang, “memories keep ringing bells” I was thinking of the state of our union today, the turmoil in our society, and where we’d been before—I was musing on our involvement in the Middle East, Latin America, Vietnam. I was thinking about the dirty deeds that this nation had been up to and then she sang, “why don’t you just admit it” and I realized that no one in power, not in this country, was ever gonna admit that we were wrong.”

You can check out the rousing cover below as well as some tour dates.

The new song will be available on 12″ single. This is the first new music from TSOL since the release of Live At The Observatory last year. You can order the upcoming single here.

According to a press release from TNS, Grand Relapse is the finest work from the Pizzatramp three to date. Guitarist and vocalist Jim had the following to say of it:

“This album tackles the cult of Scientology, the dangers of taking pills on school nights, the stupidity of white racist scum, the systematic destruction of the NHS, the mindless hell of working rubbish jobs and a load of songs about hangovers, comedowns and drinking.”

 

The previous release from Pizzatramp was just last month – a split record with The Domestics called Discipline.

Dead Bars Announce New Album, Release First Single

News that is literal music to my ears: Seattle’s Dead Bars have announced their new album Regulars (due out May 3rd), following up 2017’s Dream Gig. The new album is produced by Seattle grunge legend Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney) and mixed by Jay Maas (Defeater, Ceremony)—bringing some high-level talent to Dead Bars’ boisterous and earnest melodic punk.

They’ve also graced us with a new track—the sludgey, kinda funny/kinda sad banger “I’m a Regular.” Vocalist John Maiello had this to say: “I like this idea of being a regular. There are moments of highs and lows; loneliness and community, sadness and celebration. That’s what it’s like to be in a band. That’s what it’s like to be in Dead Bars.”

Straight from the press release:

“…Yet, while ‘Regulars’ retains much of what makes Dead Bars so great, it is no mere repeat of past successes. Instead, it features the group’s most ambitious songs to date – a consequence of more collaboration and a settled line-up. In turn, this has allowed for more of the group’s classic influences to start informing the songwriting – from the Beatles to Tom Petty and the Stooges.

“Everything was different, this time,” says Maiello. “We jammed a lot more during the writing of this, so there’s definitely more guitar stuff – and more vocal stuff – going on. Also, two of C.J.’s songs made it onto the album.”

The result is 11 songs of heartfelt and passionate punk rock, which will appeal to anyone who has ever struggled to find their place in the world. ‘Lucky’ and ‘Another Day’ are pure garage-tinged pop-punk ragers that are built for sweaty bar-room call-and-responses, while ‘You Never Left’ and ‘Rain’ show the group’s ability to mix the hopelessness and hopeful. ‘Freaks’, meanwhile, is a rallying call for the misunderstood, while ‘Producto Toxico’ – a song about going to an exotic place and doing the same thing you do at home – carries a relatable world-weariness.”
