Happy Friday, gang!
Dying Scene are stoked to bring you some brand new music from English hardcore vets The Restarts! The East London-based trio has got a brand new LP, Uprising, due out on Pirates Press Records on October 25th. BUT because they love you, the Pirates are bringing you the debut single, “Black Dog,” today!
Here’s what Kieran Plunkett, who mans bass and vocal duties for The Restarts, has to say about the song:
“The song Black Dog touches on the awareness of mental health and how it has been stigmatised. We all know people (some quite near and dear to us) who struggle with depression or other forms of mental health. With a little understanding people (who suffer manic depression and bipolar disorder) can quite easily live productive lives. It is the stigmatisation and shame that worsens the illness and increases likelihood of suicide. We have lost friends over the years to suicide and conversely know others who manage to cope with it. So the more we understand it the better chance we have to fight this.”
The term “Black Dog” was coined by the English writer Samuel Johnson and later popularised by Winston Churchill. Here’s a video explaining that analogy.

Stray From The Path, one of the most enduring bands in Long Island hardcore, have announced their ninth full-length album, Internal Atomics, out November 1 via UNFD. Internal Atomics is ten tracks fueled by the same politically-charged passion and furious energy that have kept Stray From The Path going strong for almost two decades. Through this album they hope to provide both a release and a call to action for listeners, aiming to mobilize them against apathy, corruption, and the misplaced priorities of past generations. To that end they’re debuting “Kickback”, a single off the forthcoming album that features Counterparts‘ Brendan Murphy on vocals.
“Counterparts have been brothers to us for nearly a decade. We came up together, and we support each other in our careers,” said Stray From The Path of the collaboration. “We’re lucky to be able to have Brendan feature on our new song ‘Kickback’ and do our first tour on our new albums together. We also got to do some stupid/fun stuff with Counterparts making a mystery cover 7” and offer it with both of our albums and tickets to our tour together.”
To celebrate both bands’ new releases, Stray From The Path and Counterparts will be embarking on a North American tour together in October, immediately followed by a solo tour across the U.K. and Europe for Stray From The Path. Listen to “Kickback” and check out the tour dates below.

Canadian hardcore act, Kennedy are back with a new studio release called Blood and Soil due out sometime this coming fall. It will be the band’s first of such since their 2015 debut full-length The Guilty Poor which is available for streaming on their bandcamp page. In that time the band has toured Canada relentlessly, from DIY basement shows to maxed out theaters opening for the likes of Dillinger Escape Plan and Norma Jean, among others.
Kennedy has just released the music video to the title-track, “Blood and Soil” which highlights class struggle, and recent (yet persistent) aggressions from those traitors to the working-person, the boys in blue. Art and video direction were handled by Nick Pegg of Hashtag Hope with the help of one Joe O’Connor. “Blood and Soil” was produced by Felix Crawford-Legault, recorded and mixed by Ben Evans at Burning Room Studios, and mastered by Brad Boatwright at Audio Siege Mastering Studio.
Please enjoy the video for “Blood and Soil” below, and for those of you celebrating Labor Day, please remember the blood, sweat and tears of those who battled and died before us.

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.

You can give it a listen below.
Time & Pressure last released their demo in August 2018.
It’s the end of a work week; it’s raising a fist; it’s screaming your lungs out—it’s diving headfirst into a hundred sweaty bodies. South Carolina’s Longshot Odds captures the energy and abandon of a raging pit, a marriage of iron-heavy chords and honey-thick leads—the kind of music where the bruising comes with the chorus. Their new EP, Circle the Drain, is a six-song EP from an exciting new voice in punk rock—but what they bring to the table is more than the same old sounds. From the metallic “Challenger,” to the grandiose and cinematic “Movin’ On,” all the way to the bouncey folk of “Blood and Asphalt”—Longshot Odds bring a diversity to their sound practically unheard of in today's skate punk scene. But above all this, Circle the Drain promises deliverance through rock ‘n roll, and Longshot Odds fight tooth and claw to deliver. The EP, out now on Dying Scene Records, can be streamed here.
