DS Exclusive: The Butts stream “Alex Jones Is One Of Them” off upcoming “Nightmare at Area 51” EP

Austin, TX punkers The Butts have just announced their upcoming EP, Nightmare at Area 51, to be released on Stars at Night Records this coming June. This will be a follow up to the band’s 2017 self-titled full-length, and hopefully marks a pivotal stance towards more future releases from the group who had not previously released any music since their 2011 Second to All LP which “took about a year and half, two guitar players, and three drummers to release… [they’re] lazy.”

Taking a new trajectory, these goofballers with the best band name since The Misfits, have formulated a concept album of four punkers broken down in the vast West Texas abyss, kidnapped by space invaders and forced to do gawd knows what at Area 51. All that remains of their mysterious disappearance is a tape. See? It says that here.

 

A tape? C’mon I mean this is 2019… anyway… this calamitous documentation has been disbounded and manifestly declassified to be made available on all streaming parameters June 7. Also, a preview has been released to the general public regarding some of these futuristic transgressions in an effort presumably to ease the rudimentary minds of those unwilling to accept the implications of such developments.

That preview, a warning that others may already be among us is streaming below. It’s called “Alex Jones Is One Of Them”. Included are lyrics hacked and decoded by DSLeaks themselves, at the upheaval of American authorities. The people have a right to know.

UP THE BUTTS!!!!

 

 



DS Exclusive: Ten Foot Pole premiere new album, “Escalating Quickly”

I know it’s a little last minute, but I figure every once in a while it’s only right to do something nice for those special night walkers in all of our lives. So, here you go, my children of darkness. Ten Foot Pole… a whole, like hour or something before it’s supposed to release officially.

If you didn’t know this album was coming out then you’ve probably been sleep walking through life again. I mean… don’t you get excited about anything? Personally, I’ve been wondering what took this thing so long to hit my inbox. I was almost starting to think that Thousand Islands Records was holding out on me. :p

Escalating Quickly jumps from head-banging to booty-shaking, screams to giggles, and anger to hope. The goal was to push beyond the musical expectations set by our past music, to have fun, and to be honest in a way that helps us feel connected with people. I hope you like these songs as much as I do,” says singer/guitarist, Dennis Jagard. Guest artists who get in the mix include: Dan Palmer (Death By Stereo), Dan Jacobs (Atreyu), Sean Sellers (Good Riddance) and Joe Raposo (Lagwagon).

The new album drops tomorrow on Thousand Island Records with vinyl variants available via Disconnect Disconnect Records(UK), Morning Wood Records (Europe) and Pee Records (Australia). Here is the link for purchaseEscalating Quickly was somewhat of a DIY experiment and the band “seeks patrons willing to subscribe at $1 per month or more, to help fund future recording, and in return offers supporters newsletters and early access to music, podcasts, videos and more.” Click here for more info on becoming a patron… and duh! Stay up and enjoy the new album from Ten Foot Pole below for a non-alcoholic reason to show up to work dark-eyed tomorrow morning. G’night!

Today, Dying Scene is bringing you a band that’s close to this young writers heart, undead scenesters. Here’s one that hits close to home… literally. From Parts Unknown is from my hometown. I’ve shared stages with these cats… booked them for a keg party once. We had a day-old keg of 9% beer up for grabs that we had picked up for 20 bucks down in the arts district. Woohoo stale beer!

DS Exclusive: Give You Nothing stream upcoming self-titled full-length debut

Happy Monday, gang!

We’re pretty stoked to bring you a killer new album today. It’s the self-titled debut release from Santa Cruz’s Give You Nothing. The quintet cut their teeth playing in other bands like Downpresser, Uzi Suicide, At Risk, and No Truce in and around the Santa Cruz area, and formed came together as a sort of skate punk Voltron back in 2016. 

The band holed up at Oakland’s Sharkbite Studio recently, and the result is their kick-ass debut, self-titled full-length. It’s due out this Wednesday, May 1st, via Snubbed Records in the US and Umlaut Records in the UK, but you can check it out below right now!

DS Exclusive: Dead Neck (UK) and Actionmen (Italy) Stream “Defections” Split

Two of Europe’s finest melodic hardcore bands have united on record and DyingScene is proud to give you lot a sneak peak of the results 24 hours before release day.

The UK’s Dead Neck and Italy’s Actionmen will release Defections tomorrow with the help of Germany’s Mud Cake Records. You can pick up a copy from the label’s website, and pre-orders currently live.

The split effort opens with five experimental, hyper-technical jams from Actionmen who once again display their off-the-wall approach to song writing and virtuosity on record.

Closing out the split is Dead Neck with five tracks that feel like they pick up where the band’s recently re-issued self-titled debut EP left off. It’s rapid, aggressive, oh so melodic, and offers its own share of technicality to boot.

We asked the two bands to say something about the new release. Both were good enough to give a brief description of each of the tracks appearing on Defections. You can find out exactly what inspired each band’s contributions to the split whilst listening to the entire thing below.



DS Exclusive: Down Memory Lane (Canada), Bare Teeth (France), Nerdlinger (Australia), and SHAMES (Japan) stream 4-way split, “Bridging Oceans”

YES!! Just when you’re thinking, “man, nobody does splits anymore”, we all get blasted in the face with this awesomely ambitious split compilation featuring four punk bands from four different continents – Bridging Oceans. 

It’s a behemoth of a record featuring three exclusive tracks a piece from Bare Teeth (France), Down Memory Lane (Canada), Nerlinger (Australia), and SHAMES (Japan) brought to you by four different labels: Thousand Islands (North America), Disconnect Disconnect (Europe), Pee (Australia), and Attractive Records (Japan) all joining forces to bring you this colossal unified skate punk monument which Dying Scene has streaming a few days ahead of its official release, below.

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.

Today we are premiering I Survived’s rendition of “Lungs Like Gallows”, which originally appeared on Senses Fail’s third album, Life is Not a Waiting Room, released in 2008 on Vagrant Records. Stream that song below.



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.
