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.

DS Exclusive: West Grand stream “Hostage Situation”, next single off upcoming EP

For those who haven’t been following: Paper + Plastick Records has a new band, West Grand, giving off Midwestern cow-punk/punk rock and roll vibes set to release their debut S/T EP digitally on August 9. (Hey, that’s today!) West Grand is based around singer/songwriter Kyle Green (Break Anchor) who takes ownership over depression as an unrivaled motivator, if not heavy-handedly. Coming together with fellow-Break Anchorian bassist Chris Golan, and Shawn Gryzb on drums West Grand previously streamed “Here to Stay” on Dying Scene and today we’re celebrating the EP release with “Hostage Situation”. Stream “Hostage Situation” below.

500 Miles To Memphis release amazing video for “Hold On Tight”

Cincinnati based punks 500 Miles to Memphis have released a video in collaboration with horror specialists Rue Morgue for their song “Hold On Tight”. The video is absolutely phenomenal, zombies, live shots and blood, lots and lots of blood. 500 gallons ironically enough.

Give the new video a watch below.

“Hold On Tight” comes from 500 Miles to Memphis’ upcoming album Blessed Be The Damned. Due out August 9th through Paper + Plastick, if this is just a taste, the rest of the album promises to be a real banger. If you’re a fan of The Raygun Cowboys or Lucero you will enjoy these guys.

DS Exclusive: West Grand premiere new song, “Here to Stay”

Here’s a new group to get excited about. Recently signed to Paper + Plastick Records, West Grand is a Detroit post-hardcore, mellowed out punk rock and roll band that started out the way so many pornos do – with a couple best buds and a few recordings on a cell phone. Their self-titled EP will be available for download on the Paper + Plastick website in a week or so on August 9.

West Grand’s music goes well with late-7Seconds, Rites of Spring and The Get Up Kids. Almost Strokes-ish even, with Kyle Green playing host over (perhaps) a more stripped-down (nasally) Casablancas… and I definitely don’t mean that in a bad way. “Like his mom always said, ‘Honey, you write your best songs when you’re feeling down’, and we couldn’t agree more. Thanks Depression!! These songs are so relatable, we’ve all been there. We all grieve in different ways. For West Grand, this is our way.”

West Grand is streaming a new single off that 4-track EP ahead of it’s release. You can find “Here to Stay” exclusively here on the site, below.

Stream Devon Kay And The Solutions (pop-punk) new track “The Great American Runaround”

Devon Kay and The Solutions is a Chicago based pop-punk band fronted by Direct Hit’s Devon Kay and on February 1st they’ll be releasing Yes, I Can’t, their first new album in 6 years via Paper + Plastick.

To keep your interest piqued the band is streaming a fantastic little number from the upcoming release titled “The Great American Runaround” and you can check that sucker out below.

Devon Kay and The Solutions (pop-punk) premiere new video-track, “Old Scent”

Chicago-based pop-punkers led by Devon Kay of Direct Hit, Devon Kay and The Solutions have announced a new album after six long years of dormancy. (Some might call that stability.)

Yes, I Can’t is being released on Vincent Fiorello’s (Less Than Jake) label Paper + Plastick, digitally on February 1st, and the album drops on vinyl April 26th. Pre-orders are sure to go up for grabs soon at the labels website.

A lot has changed with the band that “was born, now is here, and sometimes gets boners” since their last release in 2013. Their bassist left to pursue an actual productive life while Devon toured with Direct Hit! doing the exact opposite, composing songs in his spare time (which was a lot) with The Solutions drummer and long-time friend Ryan Solava over the internet. They threw in a horn section and YesI Can’t was borne, 12 pop-style tracks blending ska, folk, and punk in a progressive medley to the theme of a 20-something coming of age tale, and yes, I imagine the boners are still pretty consistent.

There’s some rawkin’ drums opening up the track we’re premiering, “Old Scent” which is available for streaming below, along with some tour dates and a previously released music video for the band’s title-track, “Yes, I Can’t”. Enjoy. Cheers!!
