Save Face (pop-punk, NJ) release cover of My Chemical Romance’s “Teenagers”

It’s been twelve years since My Chemical Romance first premiered their single “Teenagers” at the height of the emo/pop-punk intersection, but now Jersey boys Save Face have brought it out of retirement. There’s a lot of the same elements to be found here, though the Save Face version is a little tighter and cleaner than the MCR original, especially when it comes to vocalist Tyler Povanda’s performance. The cover is off of Save Face’s new split with Graduating Life out now. You can check out their take on “Teenagers” below.

The Menzingers share video for new song ‘Strangers Forever’

As we get closer to the release of The Menzingers new studio album, they have treated us to a third single ‘Strangers Forever’. 

On the song, singer Greg Barnett said “Lyrically, the song is inspired by Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel, ‘Anna Karenina’. In it, the character Darya Alexandrovna learns of her husband’s infidelity and declares: ‘Even if we remain in the same house, we are strangers — strangers forever! The idea of becoming a stranger to someone you so intimately know stuck with me and became the overarching narrative to this song.”

‘Hello Exile’ is out on Epitaph Records on October 4th. Check out the video for ‘Strangers Forever’ below.

DS Exclusive: Sicko (Red Scare pop-punk) premiere lyric video for “The Sprinkler”

Do you guys remember Sicko, the pop-punk band from Seattle who had their heyday in the mid 90s? You might if you’re over 35 and the rest of you should get familiar by checking out their back catalog available digitally through Red Scare.

Anyway, for the pre-initiated, you’ll be pleased to know that Red Scare just released an anthology/”best-of” album “In The Alternate Timeline” containing 19 remastered songs, hand-picked by the band, and I couldn’t be more pleased to bring you a lyric video from one of said tunes. Being “old” and into punk for 25 odd years I can proudly say I owned every Sicko record when I was but a youngster. Join me in my fandom by scoping the lyric video for “The Sprinkler” along with some of the band’s rare(!) upcoming gig dates below.

Oh, and here’s a cool little story about the footage from the band themselves:

Once, on a warm spring evening long ago, 3 pop punkers drove their beloved touring van onto the island of Manhattan, through the streets of Greenwich Village, and played a show at a club called Coney Island High (15 St. Mark’s Place?). We had a lot of fun playing to an at-the-time rare enthusiastic audience. Was that Alan Rappaport from Popkid Records swinging from the overhead pipes while we played? Watch the video and you be the judge. That was quite a display of youthful energy and abandon, looking back on it now. The truth is New York scared us: the size of it, the all-hours press of people, the lack of identifiable traffic lanes, movies like Escape from New York… it was all too much for 3 tense provincials just stepping out into the world. In the event, New York held surprises for us and our misconceptions: an 11pm parking ticket, cafes full of happy chatting people at 2am, and some of the friendliest, kindest, warmest punk rockers we would meet in a 10,000 mile tour across America. We’re looking forward to seeing a few of you again, old friends. Come down to Gold Sounds in Brooklyn, hear the sounds of your youth (ours too!), share your old stories and do-you-remember-when with us a bit. This time we’re leaving the van at home! Love, Sicko.
