DS Exclusive: Doc Hammer stream “Vamparty Diaries” off upcoming LP, “Neon Devil”

Calling all party punks! You’re invited to a vamparty, which is kind of like a van-party with less sucking… or MORE! I don’t know, but Dying Scene is ON THE FUCKING GUEST LIST, and we’re thrilled to be taking all out readers along to crash this sucker with us. Figuratively, of course, we’re actually almost never on the guest list for anything. Remember that, and make sure and tip your bartenders and hook up your neighborhood volunteer punk rock journalists every time ya’ get the chance.

Doc Hammer is a hardcore rock and roll five-piece led by front-man Josh Ravin who is “all about letting loose and letting go.” For fans of Dillinger Escape Plan, the band claims they are “equal parts party/ equal parts metal for the people.” They will be releasing their first full length album, Neon Devil, on Paper + Plastick Records Sept. 1, which should then be available on all the regular streaming platforms. Dying Scene is stoked to bring you the early release of Doc Hammer’s newest single off  Neon Devil titled “Vamparty Diaries”, today.

“As veterans of the music industry, the dudes of Doc Hammer are no strangers to the scene, evidenced by the grit and sense of determination felt in all their songs. Their driving guitar riffs and catchy, anthem-like hooks create a harmonious blend of hardcore and rock n’ roll. With live shows notorious for their energy and spirit, Doc Hammer is setting a new standard for rock n’ roll. Be it jumping into and playing inside the crowd or crawling around and hanging from the rafters, Doc Hammer is all about stirring it up and starting the party.” (EPK)

Following the release of Neon Devil,  Doc Hammer will be embarking on an eleven-date tour along the west coast (U.S.) before returning to their San Diego home where they can be found tapping kegs and Magic The Gathering cards (apparently) for the forseeable furture. Check out that tour schedule and stream “Vamparty Diaries” below.

Bombay-based hardcore unit Death By Fungi have a new EP out. It’s called Die In Bombay and features four ruthless tracks – two completely new and two re-recordings of tunes featured on the band’s 2015 self-titled debut.

Band’s guitarist and founding member Vrishank Menon had the following the say about Die In Bombay:

“This EP is our first step forward in finding a sound that’s ours. Frantic, heavy, melodic, whatever we like in music. We’ve written about the violence of growing up in Bombay, where lives are seen as expendable for capital gain. We also remixed and remastered two songs from our first EP because we love those songs and it felt like they don’t get enough love.”

Die In Bombay is currently streaming in full over at PureGrainAudio. Head over and check it out. If you like it, buy it. They’ve also got some beautiful new shirts to accompany the release too. They’ve got a majestic owl on them.

Their critically-acclaimed 2012 S/T debut launched Die A Legend towards the direction of playing every major Norwegian festival and providing tour support for the likes of Converge as well as Norwegian Grammy-winning band, The Good The Bad and The Zugly, before they went MIA into the lost oblivion or Valhalla… or community college or whatever.

Well, they’re back, and that’s great news for anybody who likes blistering hardcore punk rock with venom-spitting vocals and mean noisey breakdowns. Their newest release, WINNING, is set for release this September 6 on Loyal Blood Records which promises to be “an awkwardly titled 10-inch audiovisual spectacle” containing “a hardcore and contemporary commentary on the state of things.”

If that’s not enough to get you excited about new Norwegian Hardcore music then check out this quote from the band: “BLOODTHIRST is the second single off our new ten inch release titled WINNING, and it’s a blatant burst of hardcore energy. A contemplation on vengeful emotions – the track embodies our firm roots in both hardcore punk and post-hardcore and is a vibrant precursor of things to come.”

Guess who’s got it! Die A Legend is streaming Bloodthirst for you here first at Dying Scene. Give that track a listen below, and order the new shizzz here.
