DS Exclusive: Triple Sundae (Indie Punk, UK) Release New Video for “Pollution” and Announce EP “Glow”

London indie-punks Triple Sundae are about to release a video for a new single titled “Pollution” and we’re giving you lot the first look at it. The fresh visuals accompany an announcement of a new six track EP Glow, which will be released this summer. Vocalist, Hassan Afaneh, had the following to say about the new single:

“’Pollution’ is a song that highlights how our own bad habits and ways of procrastinating can poorly affect our mental health without us noticing directly.” 

Since 2014, Triple Sundae have been a notable presence in London’s punk rock scene and with the release of Glow we’re expecting them to make even bigger waves.  Recorded at Anchor Baby (Ghouls, Chris Slade, Chapter & Verse) and using 2018 EP Peace of Mind as a springboard, the new record draws influence from the likes of The Menzingers, Spraynard, and Jeff Rosenstock.

You can check out the video for the first single from Glow, “Mental Pollution”, below.

Choking Victim Adds Stacked Second Night at Market Hotel

Choking Victim at their last New York City headlining set October 30, 2016.

As if the excitement wasn’t high enough for one Choking Victim show in New York City on June 14,  Scenic Presents decided to hit the Big Apple off with another dose of Crack Rock Steady on June 15. The Friday night lineup was already completely ridiculous with the Crack Rock Steady originators being joined by The Pist, All Torn Up, Trashy, and Eve Minor.  But the Saturday night rowdy down has to be one of the best punk lineups to hit the Empire City in a decade and it’s all devoid of corporate dollars as all Scenic shows are.

For the second night of musical mayhem, Scenic went out and tapped the otherworldly entertaining World/Inferno Friendship Society, Philadelphia heavy-hitters Soul Glo, New Jersey’s wildest in Crazy & the Brains, and Wisconsin’s own folk-punks We the Heathens. Anyone of these bands as direct support for Choking Victim is already an unbelievably stacked bill, but all of them together following what is a wild lineup on the June 14th show … it’s like true love, this doesn’t happen every day.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, and they will be on sale tomorrow. This one is going to sell out so get ’em early. … can you hear that? It’s the WIFS faithful chanting “Tonight, we’re gonna, fuck shit up!” before Jack and Scott lead an uproarious crowd in obliterating Bushwick’s Market Hotel.

 



Introducing Everyone Knows: Bluesy Alt-Rock (Sergio of The Early November solo project)

Look, as much as we’d all like to pretend that we subsist on a diet of Crass, recreational drugs and dumpster diving, there comes a time to admit sometimes we want, nay, need something more in our lives. I can’t help you with your questionable life choices or the lack of Vitamins in your diet, but I can point you in the direction of some music that your tinder dates will be able to stomach.

Everyone Knows is the solo project of Sergio Anello, bassist of The Early November. With ‘Tell or Be Told’ he has created a bluesy alt rock album that conjures images of a smoke-filled backroom bar frequented by people who have money, only you’re not sure where their money comes from. And you sure as hell shouldn’t ask.

Songs languorously flow into each other like hungover recollections of the night before and the vocals curl around you like cigarette smoke, seeping into your skin and staying with you all day. This album has all the layered notes of an end of night whiskey. It’s mature, sure. You might even call it smooth. But there’s an understated raw fragility in the lyrics and vocals that creates a slow, building burn that sticks with you.

Check it out here.
