Dark and brooding. Angry and loud. Belgium’s DEPTHS. are everything you’re looking for in a post-hardcore band, and their new EP “Until Sleep Narrows My Conscious Mind” is every bit as complicated and epic as its name implies. I must admit, I wasn’t too familiar with these guys until this very moment but as I write this on a foggy fall morning in the Southern Hemisphere they’re a very welcome new discovery. Discover them yourself below.

Here’s a slow jam for all you starry-eyed young scenesters. A Page Unturned are a talented trio of L.A. up-and-comers featuring Japanese implant, Yoshihiro Imae on guitar and keys, bringing some interesting Reggie and the Full Effect type melodies. He’s come together with bass player/lead vocalist Damon Porras, showcasing in harmony and disposition, and an all-out synchronous Ryan Sebold on drums providing the beat. You can catch them playing shows around southern Cali, or carrying-on their rawkin’ shade of pop punk back home to Japan. They even opened for Unwritten Law last October. (RAD!)
Today, they are self-releasing “One Light”, the band’s second single follow-up to their self-titled debut 3-track EP. (All of which are available here.) This one’s not so hectic, but I dare say the energy is still in it. Give it a listen below. I bet it’ll suck you in. Enjoy!

It’s new music day!! I mean, everyday. We’re punks not brainless Clear Channel amateurs, and today I’m here to wisen you up to a distinct group of so-Cal pop/skate punxx called We Found A Map. (There name has got to be a Goonies refernece, right? It just has to be.)
Earlier this week they streamed the first single, “Zelda is a Girl”, off their upcoming EP, To the Robot Graveyard, on their bandcamp page, which is also where you can stream and pre-order the EP that comes out in full on March 5. I’m happy to say that today I get to release the second single off that record, “Royal Blue”, which speaks largely of the band’s form and musical approach by design with intricate palm-mute patterns, and baroque bass lines that appropriately highlight the honest aspect in character of highly tangible lyricism and a fast-tempo pop punk backbone.
It’s a song about the team that can be seen as a metaphor for the American dream, and how we all chase it in our own varying ways, mostly in horse blinders.
To the Robot Graveyard is releasing on the heels of the band’s 2018 EP, To the Haunted Arcade. (Also available for streaming and download) There’s no telling where the great adventure will take us next. Stream “Royal Blue” below.

Here’s one, “Copaganda” – a new track from a band brought to you first by Dying Scene, The Blanche Davidians. It’s a harmonious skate punk anthem dedicated to those who “protect and serve”.
The band’s last release, “Alex Jonestown Massacre”, made headlines and a lot of headway for a group leaning heavily on the spooky, mysterious side of the occult. “Copaganda” comes out this Thursday, and will be available for streaming on their bandcamp page. Of course, you can check it out a few days early below. (Lucky you!) Their debut EP, Placeholder, will be out March 20.

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.

So, there’s this band I’ve gotten really into lately. They’re called Nadir and they’re from Queens, which is weird because I thought they were from wherever Off With Their Heads is from because their lead singer is in Off with Their Heads, but whatever. They’re really good, and of course, you should know I was gonna say that because I fucking love Off With Their Heads. I saw them (OWTH) at 1919 Hemphill with like two other people in the audience, and it was a straight-edge club, but nobody cared. It was a fun night.
I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on a press copy of Nadir’s debut album, Collecting Misery, and it’s easily my first favorite thing that’s come out this year. (That I know of!) And I’m absolutely thrilled to show it off to you! Well, the first song anyway, off their first album. So, unless you’re one of the ones in-the-know enough to have snagged the demo, then I proudly present Nadir with “Doomed From the Start”.
Collecting Misery is being self-released by Nadir, and drops Feb. 25. Stream “Doomed From the Start” below.

Sweet fucking tracks coming at you around 2 or 3 AM, stoned and drunk and wondering if it’s worth it to ingest that last .3 or 4 grams of Christmas mushrooms to ease the pain and suffering… saved for some odd reason. What’s the point in micro-dosing anyway when God gave us these nutrients to be alive?
Guttural Riot is out-and-about in L.A. streaming at you with some new material in the form of “Take a Break”. It’s the first single off their upcoming album, Too Fucked To Die, which will be available everywhere you put your mind to it right around January 25.
These homies are down to party and they’re bringing the trash rock, shit-eating and gutter-punk style, too drunk to fuck, but not too drunk to fuck your mother, taking a break type shit down on Dying Scene tonight with a jazzy ensemble about getting the fuck away from you and your likeness, top speed. Making headway.
Take a(nother) break is damn sure what I wanna do. How do you feel? Stream that track, “Take A Break”, below.

From Louisville, KY- for fans interested in a melodic blend of soulful punk rock with a definitive southern charm, we have for you, today, the new album from Nowhere Fast, Aeonian. Nowhere Fast is a thriving young mid-western band that has just made good on putting together an exceptional album which Dying Scene has the stream for, days before the official release this Friday, October 5, 2018.
Aeonian is the band’s first album since their 2013 release, Trials, and they have spent that time dedicated to their craft in the studio, playing shows with great acts like The Bouncing Souls, The Ataris, Teenage Bottlerocket, and Cobra Skulls, and honing in on enhancing their live-performance, touring the Midwest and East Coast.
Aeonian is a wonderful collection of songs about identity straight from the heartland of America. This is music for the drive home. It opens with “Dark Towns” and lead singer/guitarist Seth Robinson alluding to the “small details in your story… [to] round out the wild blue yonder. It’s just another night in these dark towns. Just another night in these last rounds. Here’s to the let downs.” The band has previously said of the album, that it is their “most mature and nuanced work to date,” and I couldn’t agree more. Nowhere Fast is a three-piece: bass, drums, and guitar- sweet and to the point, (the perfect rock and roll arrangement for a more intimate act, IMO) and they incorporate simple song-structure with musical dynamism where you can get lost in the rocking and alluring amiability of Seth’s guitar playing, or the rhythm of Steve Keely’s bass flow winding through your stereo cables as drummer, Phil DiMarco keeps time with his poppy embrace, all while the wholesome and seductive qualities of Seth Robinson’s enrapturing vocal leads help to pack your bags for you and place you on a train to Kentucky to go and meet him.
For fans of Elvis Costello and The Hold Steady, Nowhere Fast is a sexy, slowed-down rock and roll band that belongs under the lights. Aeonian is produced by ex-Swellers singer/guitarist Nick Diener who has done an excellent job capturing those tricky subtleties in the digital sound that make recording a good, live rock and roll band so difficult. Here’s some songs to meet your next boyfriend or girlfriend to. Enjoy! Stream Aeonian below.
