DS Exclusive: For The Record (ffo: Streetlight Manifesto, Reel Big Fish) premiere new EP, “The Mess They Call My 20’s”

Here’s a new one for all you happy dancers out there, filled with quirky tunes, and timeless scenarios, replete with an energy not uncommon to the genre (Third Wave) and stuffed to the brim with gooey brass goodness like a crispy cheese stick ready to burst hot lava all over the roof of your totally expecting but super impatient palate. It’s time to shake off those skankin’ boots and hit the dance floor with a little one-two one-two, and if you get knocked down, just skank on up again. That’s just the mess they call “life”.

Here’s a new dish from central Cali ska-punkers, For The Record, all about those coming-of-age years that I like to call “second puberty”. It can be a confusing time for a young rudey, with so many falling victim to the pizza plague third-wave ska resurgence of the 90’s. (Which of course led to the oft-not discussed pepperoni shortage of the early-’00s.) For The Record are a new era sextet of true believer practitioners attempting to keep the sounds fresh going into the 2020’s… and yeah, you’re seeing this clearly. That’s 3x the 20’s.

The Mess They Call My 20’s is due out tomorrow (7/19/19) on Manic Kat Records, but the band wanted to reach out and give all you Dying Scene homies a nod and a shake before then so you can go and tell all your friends about this super-cool, awesome-dope jam that you were in on a day early because you’re a super-cool-awesome spaz-matic uber-music-dweeb. (Like me.) The Mess They Call My 20’s is the band’s second EP in as many years and showcases “a melting pot of expression and enthusiasm developed over eight years and three promising records.” Fondu-bitably… I know, I know. I’m so cheezy.

DS Exclusive: Noise Brigade stream “Color In” off upcoming EP, “Find What You Love and Let it Consume You”

It’s not every day an Alaskan band comes around… (well, Anchorage exports. They currently reside in Portland.) Yet, today we have Noise Brigade‘s new shizz for streaming straight from the mountains to the sea. Here’s a band who’s been putting out new music pretty steadily these past few years and staying busy on the road. They’ve come a long way since performing at their high school’s battle of the bands around the time of their conception, and even hit a few Warped Tour stages in Alaska before packing up their gear and heading down to the lesser 48.

Since that time they’ve released a few albums, a few singles including a skanky song about sad Christmas with no Turbo Man, and debuted an album on Manic Kat Records in May of last year titled This is Fine. They followed up that release with a busy show schedule making their way up and down the west coast and around the southwestern U.S., playing with some notable acts including The Movielife, SUCH GOLD, and The Flatliners. They’ve also recorded a new five song EP, Find What You Love and Let it Consume You to be released on May 10th on Manic Kat. Pre-orders for that are available here.

I’m pretty pleased to be able to bring you the first single off that EP today. I’m somewhat new to Dying Scene and I don’t know if I’ve been sleeping on these guys or what, but I think they’re dope! The new one is a track called “Color In” written from the outside perspective of watching a friend or loved one involved in an abusive relationship, not knowing how best to be a friend, and the frustrations inherent in that situation for all parties. The struggle is real, and it’s important to know that help is there if you seek it, but also it’s important to be the helping hand when you see a friend who’s down and out, or a stranger for that matter. Go make someone’s day undead scenesters. Here’s some pop punk. Stream “Color In” below.
