Portland, Maine’s Roseview have released a music video for an acoustic version of their song “December.” The band have teamed up with the super talented ballerina, Rhiannon Gurrette, to create a video that apparently documents the the struggles the band have dealt with both personally and collectively.

“‘December’ is about working through your pain. Every step of the journey is important and part of the bigger picture. You must keep moving forward, no matter how hard it is.”

Italian melodic HC/skate punk band, Stanis, recently announced their debut full-length, Tales From A Modern Society, to be self-released by the band on June 20. They previously wet everyone’s beaks with the first single “Society” (listen here), and today are premiering a new video for “Ready Reply”, the second teaser single off the upcoming release. It’s directed by the band’s own bass player Claudio Stanghelleni, who has done previous video work with such notable groups as Petrol Girls, Antillectual, Such Gold, Astpai, Darko and Strike Anywhere.

Stanis relates: “Ready Reply is about the discouragement you feel when you find the right words to say or the right things to do just when everything has already gone wrong… For this reason it kind of felt right to pick it as a topic for our first video! We love this production and we are proud of it especially because we created, directed and developed [it] all together, the three of us!”

Stream that fun and creative little video below, and look for Stanis on tour this coming summer with scheduled stops at both Punk Rock Holiday and Fest. Cheers!



DS Exclusive: Dead Neck (UK) and Actionmen (Italy) Stream “Defections” Split

Two of Europe’s finest melodic hardcore bands have united on record and DyingScene is proud to give you lot a sneak peak of the results 24 hours before release day.

The UK’s Dead Neck and Italy’s Actionmen will release Defections tomorrow with the help of Germany’s Mud Cake Records. You can pick up a copy from the label’s website, and pre-orders currently live.

The split effort opens with five experimental, hyper-technical jams from Actionmen who once again display their off-the-wall approach to song writing and virtuosity on record.

Closing out the split is Dead Neck with five tracks that feel like they pick up where the band’s recently re-issued self-titled debut EP left off. It’s rapid, aggressive, oh so melodic, and offers its own share of technicality to boot.

We asked the two bands to say something about the new release. Both were good enough to give a brief description of each of the tracks appearing on Defections. You can find out exactly what inspired each band’s contributions to the split whilst listening to the entire thing below.

One Week ‘Til Manchester Punk Festival: An Interview With The Tree

It’s just one week until a few thousand punks descend on the northern UK city of Manchester for what has fast become an absolute festival-calendar highlight. Returning for its fifth and biggest edition yet, Manchester Punk Festival will play host to more than 130 bands spanning just about every sub-genre of punk.

The festival is the product of three of Manchester’s most-active purveyors of underground sounds – Moving North, Anarchistic Undertones, and TNS Records. Helping them is a vast team of volunteers drafted directly from the UK punk scene. Essentially, it’s about 10 massive DIY gigs running simultaneously, with hundreds of bands, that span three days. It’s fucking great.

With just a few tickets remaining, we put some questions to long promoter Ian “Tree” Robinson (of Manchester’s Anarchistic Undertones and Oasis tribute band-fame) to find out what goes in to putting on an underground slobber-knocker as grand in scale as that occurring next weekend. Below is the result of just that.

Wolfrik (ffo: A Wilhelm Scream, Converge) break down lyrics to “Skeleton City” EP to celebrate vinyl reissue

Alberta thrasher punks, Wolfrik, have an eclectic sound, to say the least when describing their music. For starters, lead singer Dylan Toews’ archetypal bellows – at times, redolent of Scott Sturgeon (Leftover Crack, Chocking Victim) – swim anxiously through some seriously ripping melodic metal solos, and dreamy face-melters to almost give the impression that this could be what crack rock sounds like if it didn’t pawn all their guitars. Dual harmonies provided by Kevin Perry and Mark Seifiddine, and a fast-as-fuck rhythm section in Luca Properzi (carpel tunnel) and Nathan Troock (involuntary muscle spasms) bring together the weird, disquieted melodic thrash-punk anomaly that is Wolfrik, and their album, Skeleton City which somehow emerges the disparate haze, as a seamless and functioning… fucking really good debut EP.

Skeleton City was originally self-released by Wolfrik last Spring on CD and digital formats. It has since been picked up for a vinyl reissue by Thousand Island Records (North America) and Lockjaw Records (Europe), with the vinyl release set for March 1, 2019. You can order those at each respective link provided above.

Wolfrik has a 16-date European tour lined-up in support of the Skeleton City. Check out those dates as well as the neurotically perturbed lyrics, with a breakdown of their meaning from vocalist, Dylan Toews, below. Enjoy!
