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.



DS Exclusive: The Undertaking! stream new EP, “Scavengers” (ffo: Dillinger Escape Plan, Boy Sets Fire)

New San Diego hardcore punk band The Undertaking! are premiering their debut EP, Scavengers, a day in advance for all you saavy young Dying Scene readers out there. It’s five-songs of adrenaline fueled, guitar heavy punk rock and roll mayhem clocking in at just under twenty minutes, inspired by time spent away from the stage and that unsettling craving feeling that calls us all back home to hardcore and punk rock music.

Scavengers is being self-released, with the aid of Sassafras Management, on April 19th and will be made “officially” available for purchase and streaming at all the regular spots then. It goes well with Dillinger Escape Plan and Boy Sets Fire. Check out the jams below, and don’t sleep on these happy-go-angsty music-loving punx.

All artwork for the album was handled by renowned artist, Dave Quiggle, (Disney, Adventure Time, Star Trek, Foo Fighters) and production credit goes to Daniel Bourget.

 

 



DS Exclusive: Illiterates stream 30 second song, “God is E Flat” (ffo: Black Lips, Surfbort)

“Seeking bassist for loud, fast, extremely drunk rock & roll side project. Influences: Dead Boys, Dead Kennedys, Stooges, MC5, Mudhoney, early Replacements. Minimal time commitment. We have to really like hanging out with you. Also, no complaining or creative disagreements allowed. In fact, creativity is frowned upon. We favor pure adrenaline and enthusiasm over chops and interesting ideas. Have no songs yet, but we have a show booked.” That’s the Facebook add answered by bassist Jesse Cole, who would go on to finalize the creation of the fast, loud and seedy garage punk band, Illiterates.

Illiterates are a new band out of Atlanta with LA ties, recently picked up by Baby Robot Media. Their debut album, Makeout Mountainwas released in September of last year to blistering reviews, and Illiterates have since busied themselves recording a follow-up LP, Goddamn Gun-Toting Junkie Camaro Enthusiasts, which is produced by Ed Rawls (Black Lips, The Coathangers) and promises more of the frantic and impulsive transmittal velocity as the first. That album will be released on June 14th.

Of Goddamn Gun-Toting Junkie Camaro Enthusiasts,  guitarist Steve Labate says, “We’ve always wanted illiterates to be raw. We force ourselves to keep things simple. If anyone’s ever overthinking a part, anyone else could throw up a veto and strip the idea down to its base layer. Recording totally analog with Ed and Justin was a reflection of that ethos. It was all about the feel of each take rather than capturing a perfect performance.” “God is E Flat” capitalizes, perhaps excessively on that concept being one note strummed in concession as an inventory is taken over people’s various past and present theistic obsessions.

“In classical music, E-flat is considered the ‘Key of the Divine.” continues Labate. “A lot of old composers would write their divine-inspired symphonies to God in E-flat, so we wrote a whole song around just that one note.”

Simple songs for simple people… That’s you young scenesters, and I’m glad to premiere “God is E Flat” for you today, available below – and I highy (cough, cough) recommend going back and giving Makeout Mountain another listen as well. (Link provided above.)

“We just want to hit that primal part of your brain that’s all id,” explains vocalist, Steve Albertson. “Just sex, drugs, violence, viscera, energy.”

Labate goes a step further… “Maybe it’s a bit of escapism, trying to get away from everything going on in the world right now, but just for a moment, we want to let people live out that fantasy of what rock & roll was when you were a kid.”

DS Exclusive: I Survived (TX) streams “Lungs like Gallows” from upcoming Senses Fail tribute

Senses Fail fans rejoice! The wait is almost over. An upcoming tribute album brought to you by the good people at Pacific Ridge Records is about to hit the digital shelves. The album will be available at the label’s Bandcamp page, and includes twenty-three bands ranging stylistically in performative execution of twenty-three Senses Fail fan-favorites.

A Tribute to Senses Fail drops on March 27, and Dying Scene is thrilled to bring you the next installment of post-hardcore retrospective glory a la I Survived, a few days early. They are a San Antonio band known for their cynical approach, melodic sections, and range-driven vocalist.

Previously, Dying Scene premiered “Can’t Be Saved” and “The Fire” off the upcoming comp.

DS Exclusive: Urban Outfielders (Baseball Punx) Premiere “Where Did He Go (Tito)” In Tribute to Former Bandmate

Baseball punkers Urban Outfielders are releasing their new single “Where Did He Go (Tito)” tomorrow (March 22nd) on all major streaming platforms. The single comes from their new EP, Out of This World, which is slated for release on April 22nd. You can hear the single one day early at Dying Scene exclusively, though!

The song serves as a tribute to their fallen outfielder and bandmate, Tito Rogers. Rogers disappeared tragically last year in a flash of light after leaving the dugout earlier than advised. The band believes extra terrestrial motives may be at play here.

Out of This World will be out on April 22nd via Hidden Home Records. Listen to the new single “Where Did He Go (Tito)” below.



DS Exclusive: Fallen Monuments stream new song, “It Doesn’t Mean a Thing”

Fallen Monuments is a rawkin’ little San Diego punk quartet for fans of Descendents and Strung Out that’ll get you up and moving this happy Tuesday afternoon, or I ain’t the damn Dolly Llama. Gary, Todd, Brandon, and Aaron are four old-timer best buds that whether it be through excretions of hyperintensive melodic leads or the sweet Bill Stevinson-esque bass kick snap tone, apparently secrete punk rock down to their very core. They’ve been making music together since 2016, and released the band’s debut full-length, Distance and Time, in May of last year.

To follow up on that well-received album (available here) Fallen Monuments is releasing a new EP, Experiments, which is set for release on April 2, this year of our lord, and will be again made available on the (previously linked) band’s bandcamp page for digital streaming and purchase.

“It Doesn’t Mean a Thing” is the first single off the EP, as well as the only original, where just for funsies they’ve included a couple of covers: “Overkill” by Men at Work, and “Under the Milky Way” by The Church. Of “It Doesn’t Mean a Thing”, it’s a damn-good song, and has the sounding of playability where you can listen to it on repeat for a while, or at least until you’re bashing your head on the rails and begging for …Men at Work to come on(?) Can you hear the thunder? I for one can’t wait for the rest!

“It Doesn’t Mean a Thing” talks of growing old and falling folly. It almost takes a sarcastic air with the  thematic cant of a more insightful Nelson Muntz. “It’s just so sad that it happened to you. It doesn’t mean a thing.”

I’ve listened to it like twenty times and all I hear is “Ha-Ha,” but you tell me.



DS Exclusive: Swan Prince (pop/skate punk) stream new EP, “Enjoy the Rain”

Hell hath no fury like a riot girl scorned, and Hell Hath No Fury Records is letting you know exactly what’s up, dishing out some sweet poppy skate punk vibes here, centered on the Bristol and Manchester DIY female-fronted, non-binary and queer punk movement.

Swan Prince is a Birmingham band who’s been making all the right moves touring through the UK. They’ve only been around for two years and already have amassed quite the following and show portfolio, having shared the stage with such acts as Bad Cop/Bad Cop, MEST, The Murderburgers, The Bombpops, and Teenage Bottlerocket. Their newest EP, Enjoy the Rain, was released today, hot on the heels of their latest and pretty recent debut EP, Never Look Back, which just came out last summer to applause and affirmation.  You can purchase both of those albums hereEnjoy the Rain is streaming below, and be sure to check out Swan Prince’s upcoming tour schedule as well so that you aren’t caught out of the loop. Cheers!



DS Exclusive: Downway premiere “Wild Ones” off upcoming “Last Chance for More Regrets” LP

Formerly of California-based Sessions Records, Downway (ffo: Goldfinger, Lagwagon) have recently come out of retirement and signed with Thousand Islands Records to release a new album, Last Chance for More Regrets. It drops May 1, and is the band’s first release since their split with Belvedere in 2003.

15 years is a long time to be away from the studio, but all early previews of the new album indicate that Downway, who reformed in 2017 after a lengthy hiatus, haven’t quite lost their touch. Last Chance for More Regrets promises more of the same anthemic 90’s-style melodic skate punk that initially earned them a few stints on the Warped Tour docket, and even a video spot on the historically beloved MTV network, before it was taken over by the Kardashians.

Since the band’s newfound rejuvenation they have toured western Canada as well as Japan, with more Canadian tour dates to look forward to surrounding the release of the upcoming LP. Today, I’m proud to showcase for you all their latest single, “Wild Ones”. If you’re a fan of catchy hooks, poppy harmonies, and energetic palm mute sections to bounce your head to, then this jam is one you may want to consider. You can stream “Wild Ones” as well as view Downway’s fast-approaching tour schedule below. Cheers!

DS Exclusive: A Page Unturned (ffo: Yellowcard, Set Your Goals) premiere new song, “One Light”

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!



DS Exclusive: We Found a Map stream “Royal Blue” off upcoming EP, “To the Robot Graveyard”

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

DS Exclusive: The Blanche Davidians premiere new song, “Copaganda”

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.
