DS Exclusive: The Butts stream “Alex Jones Is One Of Them” off upcoming “Nightmare at Area 51” EP

Austin, TX punkers The Butts have just announced their upcoming EP, Nightmare at Area 51, to be released on Stars at Night Records this coming June. This will be a follow up to the band’s 2017 self-titled full-length, and hopefully marks a pivotal stance towards more future releases from the group who had not previously released any music since their 2011 Second to All LP which “took about a year and half, two guitar players, and three drummers to release… [they’re] lazy.”

Taking a new trajectory, these goofballers with the best band name since The Misfits, have formulated a concept album of four punkers broken down in the vast West Texas abyss, kidnapped by space invaders and forced to do gawd knows what at Area 51. All that remains of their mysterious disappearance is a tape. See? It says that here.

 

A tape? C’mon I mean this is 2019… anyway… this calamitous documentation has been disbounded and manifestly declassified to be made available on all streaming parameters June 7. Also, a preview has been released to the general public regarding some of these futuristic transgressions in an effort presumably to ease the rudimentary minds of those unwilling to accept the implications of such developments.

That preview, a warning that others may already be among us is streaming below. It’s called “Alex Jones Is One Of Them”. Included are lyrics hacked and decoded by DSLeaks themselves, at the upheaval of American authorities. The people have a right to know.

UP THE BUTTS!!!!

 

 



Manchester Punk Festival 2019: Photographers’ Spotlight

This year’s Manchester Punk Festival was yet another sublime cacophony of smiles, sounds, and sozzles. As always, the organisers went above and beyond to make it an event to remember. The addition of even more styles of music, the addressing of previous years’ venue capacity issues, and the trial run of a new three-full-day format all enhanced what was already the obvious highlight of the UK festival calendar.

Rather than cover the event by way of endless stream of “and then I watched…., and they were good”, I thought it’d be great to shine a little light on some of the unsung heroes of festivals and live musical performance in general – the gig photographer. Seeing a wicked set of pictures can take you back to watching a band absolutely smash it or turn an idea of a punk rock road trip into a reality for next year. There’s always loads of great pictures of festivals too but it’s rare you get to see the work of (nearly) all the photographers in one place.

With that in mind I tracked down as many of the photographers covering Manchester Punk Festival as I possibly could; the idea being to showcase what they think to be their finest work from the event. Below, you’ll find their submissions, along with a few words from each about their experience of the festival and their work outside of documenting all things punk.

 



Slam Dunk 2019 Reveals Clash-Proof Stages

In a first for the UK punk / emo / metalcore all-dayer, Slam Dunk 2019 has announced that some stages will alternate their programming, becoming clash-proof. This year, neither the Jagermeister Stage or Impericon stage will clash, making sure fans of hardcore and metalcore will be able to catch both stage lineups throughout the day. In addition, The Dickies Stage and The Marshall Stage will not clash with each other either.

This means fans of the heavier end of the spectrum will be able to catch Atreyu, Glassjaw, Silverstein, Gallows, The Bronx and Cancer Bats, amongst others, without fear of missing out.  Similarly, fans of the more emo and indie spirited acts can see the likes of The Menzingers, Touche Amore, The Get Up Kids, Saves The Day, Plain White T’s, Real Friends, Seaway, Trophy Eyes and more without needing to choose between stages.

The one day event, with dates in the North and South of England, is rounded out with Fat Mike’s Punk in Drublic stage (NOFX, Bad Religion, Less Than Jake, Millencolin, Lag Wagon and more), Monster Energy stage (All Time Low, New Found Glory, Neck Deep, Boston Manor and more) along with 3 other stages showcasing up and coming and and acoustic artists.

DS Exclusive: Ten Foot Pole premiere new album, “Escalating Quickly”

I know it’s a little last minute, but I figure every once in a while it’s only right to do something nice for those special night walkers in all of our lives. So, here you go, my children of darkness. Ten Foot Pole… a whole, like hour or something before it’s supposed to release officially.

If you didn’t know this album was coming out then you’ve probably been sleep walking through life again. I mean… don’t you get excited about anything? Personally, I’ve been wondering what took this thing so long to hit my inbox. I was almost starting to think that Thousand Islands Records was holding out on me. :p

Escalating Quickly jumps from head-banging to booty-shaking, screams to giggles, and anger to hope. The goal was to push beyond the musical expectations set by our past music, to have fun, and to be honest in a way that helps us feel connected with people. I hope you like these songs as much as I do,” says singer/guitarist, Dennis Jagard. Guest artists who get in the mix include: Dan Palmer (Death By Stereo), Dan Jacobs (Atreyu), Sean Sellers (Good Riddance) and Joe Raposo (Lagwagon).

The new album drops tomorrow on Thousand Island Records with vinyl variants available via Disconnect Disconnect Records(UK), Morning Wood Records (Europe) and Pee Records (Australia). Here is the link for purchaseEscalating Quickly was somewhat of a DIY experiment and the band “seeks patrons willing to subscribe at $1 per month or more, to help fund future recording, and in return offers supporters newsletters and early access to music, podcasts, videos and more.” Click here for more info on becoming a patron… and duh! Stay up and enjoy the new album from Ten Foot Pole below for a non-alcoholic reason to show up to work dark-eyed tomorrow morning. G’night!

It’s due out this Wednesday, May 1st, via Snubbed Records in the US and Umlaut Records in the UK, but you can check it out below right now!
