DS Exclusive: Postage (ffo: Direct Hit, The Murderburgers) stream new track, “Mail Patterns”

Albany post-rockers Postage have a new EP releasing November 1 on Paper + Plastik Records, the title-of-which is Flexi 2. It’s the follow up to their debut Flexi EP, and if the exclusive single premiere they’ve just granted Dying Scene is any indication, then you can expect the EP to really deliver. Postage is a band that’s sealed and stamped for greatness. They’ve got the full package. Are you getting the message?  I hope so, because I am sincerely out of puns.

Pre-orders for Flexi 2 will go on sale October 7 here. In the meantime, please enjoy the new song “Mail Patterns” below. It’s a song that asks “What’s the point in negativity anyway?” Why should we be so angry with each other when we can all just not give a shit? That’s what fucking Krishna would say, and that’s what I’m kicking to you young warrior scenesters.

P.S. Peep the kitty in the mailbox. 



The Ataris release new acoustic album

It’s been over twelve years since The Ataris delivered a studio album of new material. Their last effort was ‘Welcome To The Night’ in 2007 which saw a reinvention of their sound with a more indie-rock approach. In recent times long term fans have seen the band change members numerous times and release several singles, compilations and live recordings. The latest edition to The Ataris discography is not a new studio album, but a collection of stripped-down acoustic versions of songs from across their career. ‘Hang Your Head In Hope’ is out now digitally via Kung Fu Records.

If you are still a fan of Kris Roe and co., check out the track listing and video for ‘In This Diary’ below.



Protagonist (melodic) streaming new single “Generation Lost”

Check it out for yourself below.

Protagonist last released Jean Jackets back in 2015. No word yet on whether this might lead to a new album, but one can only hope.



DS Exclusive: Matt Pless premieres new single, “When the Frayed Wind Blows”

Paper + Plastik Records is bringing us a new EP from folk artist Matt Pless this September 13, a follow-up to the 2017 full-length Catch Me if You Can. If you’re already a fan of this long-winded young singer/songwriter then that bit of news probably arouses more than a little excitement, and if you’ve never heard of him then you’re in luck, because Dying Scene is premiering a wonderful new track off the upcoming Nero EP called “When the Frayed Wind Blows” RIGHT MEOW! It’s a song filled with wise-cracking perspective harried in the Greenwich Village tradition of American folk rock resurgence re-personified as:

“xeroxed zines, pixel memes and screen printed patches waxing philosophical mayhem on a leather jacket. It’s prophetic graffiti, stickers, pins and stick and poke tattoos, It’s self education, self organization, and selfish yet selfless all at once. It’s in the starry hungry eyes of every idealist weirdo I have met along the road, spitting in the face of injustice and hitching a ride toward a new tomorrow. It’s a wild moment in history and if you are reading this, you are probably a part of it. Call it DIY, call it folk punk, call it revolution, call it foolishness…call it whatever you want. I like to think that this is the stuff of inspirational legend, lightning in a bottle, magical liberating chaos on fire.”

That’s an old quote but it still fits, and perhaps predicates a bit of the passion Pless obviously feels about his craft. Of course, I’m of the camp that just calls it folk punk, but when it really comes down to it, “When the Frayed Wind Blows” is a tune that speaks for itself and there’s not much I can say that Pless doesn’t already punctuate conclusively.  There is no shortage of clever lyrics for excerpts with the only issue residing in the decision where to actually place that closing quotation mark. No way are this writer’s chicken peckers typing out that whole song! You can stream “When the Frayed Wind Blows” below, and enjoy!



Hans Gruber and The Die Hards release video for “The Ballad of Burro the Man”

Austin punks Hans Gruber and The Die Hards have released a video for their song “The Ballad of Burro the Man”. The song comes off the band’s most recent release Hans Gruber and The Die Hards 2, which was released back in August on Paper + Plastick Records. The video is a throw-back to the spaghetti Western days, with the hero riding his noble steed across a rugged Western landscape, where our beloved hero is suddenly struck with a mental flashback to happier times perhaps. Singing with his comrades and grabbing a spin with a fair maiden.

Alright maybe it’s not all that deep, but it’s a pretty awesome song and video, so check it out below.

As mentioned above Hans Gruber and The Die Hards just released Hans Gruber and The Die Hards 2 a few weeks back, so giddy-up on out there and give it a listen pardner.



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.
