New Video: Teenage Bottlerocket – “Everything To Me” from upcoming album, “Stay Rad”

Even more rad news from the Teenage Bottlerocket headquarters today. This time, it’s a brand new video for the track “Everything To Me.” The video, as you might imagine, is about the radness that is being a dad (dadness?!?) and how cool raising a kid can be. It features a pretty lengthy cameo from Ray Carlisle’s rad-as-hell son Milo, and even a few shots of Miguel Chen’s baby kiddo, Olivia. Check it out here!

“Everything To Me” is the latest track to be released in advance of TBR’s upcoming full-length, Stay Rad!, which is due out March 15th on Fat Wreck Chords. Pre-orders are still here. It marks the follow-up to March 2017’s Stealing The Covers, and their first studio full length of originals since 2015’s Tales From Wyoming.



Miguel Chen (Teenage Bottlerocket) Announces New Book, “The Death Of You: A Book For Anyone Who Might Not Live Forever”


Rad news from the Teenage Bottlerocket camp today. The band’s bass player and resident yogi announced details behind his sophomore book. It’s called The Death Of You: A Book For Anyone Who Might Not Live Forever, and it’s due out this coming September on Wisdom Publications. Here’s the book’s description:

DEATH.

Even the word itself probably makes you a little uncomfortable. Just look at it, sitting there, demanding to be acknowledged. It might even make you a lot uncomfortable.

We spend so much time trying to deny death, going on about our lives as if we and our loved ones are immune to it. Then, one day, its truth becomes undeniable. The Death of You doesn’t flinch in looking into this vital, urgent matter. Join Miguel for a wild ride where we get real about death—and even have a few laughs at its expense.

If you might someday die—or if you know someone who will—this book is for you. If you’re afraid of dying, this book is for you. If you’re excited about the Great Unknown, this book is for you. In plainspoken, kind, and encouraging language, Miguel will show you how to transform your relationship with death—and in doing so, you’ll get to know your life in a whole new way. Today is the perfect day to start. Don’t wait—you’re not gonna live forever.

We’re still big fan’s of Chen’s first book, I Wanna Be Well, and have referred back to it quite often since its release last February via Wisdom Publications. We’re sure this one will be much the same! Pre-order yours at Amazon right here while you’re still alive enough to do so!

Short/Fast/Loud: Dollar Signs – “This Will Haunt Me”

Here at Dying Scene, we’ve been talking a lot behind the scenes about how to maximize our content—not only covering more, but covering better. We’ll be making some changes to our output in the coming months, and the end goal will be to provide our writers with more opportunities to write in-depth reviews, editorials, and interviews. Part of this is adapting our review format—there is simply too much out there to cover and full-length reviews just aren’t time effective. That doesn’t mean we’re getting rid of longform reviews (we’d rather die), only that when we do them, we’ll be investing more in them and treating them as we would a feature. For the rest, we want to cover the multitude of bands that are working hard out there but might get squashed under the great wheel of the album submissions game. Short-form reviews—as short and loud as punk itself—will be a way for us to cover more while still providing honest, dependable feedback. Let us know what you think of the new format, we plan to roll out capsule reviews as they accumulate from here on out.

Dollar Signs have been flying under the radar for a couple years now, poised for something bigger. This Will Haunt Me may very well be that something bigger. The Charlotte quintet pride themselves on their tongue-in-cheek sad sack anthems that straddle the lines of hardcore, pop punk, and folk punk. They drive forward with a garagey energy that brings to mind the likes of Jeff Rosenstock (who singer Erik Button is a vocal dead ringer for), while being self-deprecating, young, and painfully open. This Will Haunt Me continues the grand tradition of punk rock as talk therapy, and Dollar Signs work through their shit with talent to spare.

Introducing Chicago Pop-Punk Act: Tougher Than You Thought

I’m going to admit it, I miss Myspace. A whacky time for youthful exploration of the important stuff; cool bands, HTML code, and those weird bulletins that would kill you if you didn’t re-post them in 30 minutes. Listening to Tougher Than You Thought, feels a lot like this. They sprinkle in a little twenty-something heartache with a sound all their own. Their debut EP Check, Please has had me in my feels since the first time I heard it.

Their song “Open Book “ is the culmination of dope guitar riffs, catchy drumbeats, and lyrics that I would have probably used for a picture caption or two. Not to mention, the band members themselves have an extremely awesome back-story, according to their facebook “2 members of the band have parents who won the immigration lottery (1 in 900,000 odds) in their home countries”. This band is dynamic and worth a listen, check them out below. &Hearts;

The Tenth (Bubblegum Punk) Releases Debut LP, Dunes

Keep an eye on the band’s Youtube page as well, because they premiere the music video for the track, “I Saw A Ghost”! If guitarist/vocalist Harley Quinn Smith looks familiar to you, it’s probably because the she is the offspring of world famous Indie film maker, Kevin Smith. In addition to her music endeavors, the nineteen year old has also made appearances in films, such as 2016 Sundance Film Festival favorite Yoga Hosers (also starring Johnny Depp, Natasha Lyonne and Justin Long), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (at the age of 1), Jersey GirlClerks IITusk and her newest film All These Small Moments.

Only on Weekends (pop-punk) premiere music video for “Always Greener”

Dying Scene has been stocking up on “whoa’s” to bring you Only on Weekends‘ new music video, “Always Greener”, a song about the woes of having a love life while playing in a rock and roll band. Noted for their cleverly entertaining videos, this one tells the age-old disaster story of what it’s like to date a musician.

Directed by Tim Matthews, “Always Greener” is an inward reflection about self-centeredness and neglecting those we cherish, and imparts a lesson to the wise of the value of communication. It’s a funny video, with a plot borrowed from every sitcom ever-made, (Boy Meets World and The Flinstones to name a few) portraying the juggling act of divided attention, which nearly always terminates poorly in assured self-sabotaging obsolescence.

This four-piece pop punk ensemble from Philly (by way of New Jersey) has been running their GMC Vandura up and down the east coast for the past several years and recently released a new full-length album, Another Wasted Night, which was recorded and produced by Jesse Cannon. (The Menzingers, Saves the Day, The Misfits) It is available for streaming and purchase here. Check out the video to “Always Greener” below.
