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.



DS Exclusive: Nadir (ffo: OWTH, Jimmy Eat World) premiere “Doomed from the Start” off debut album, “Collecting Misery”

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.



Guttural Riot release new track, “Take A Break”

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.



DS Exclusive: Manic Kat Records stream “A Very Merry Punxmas, Volume 1”

The fat man’s coming and all those corporations we’ve been talking shit about are lining their pockets with our Christmas bonuses… but the bag’s full and the reindeer are high.

DS Exclusive: Titans In Time stream Senses Fail cover “The Fire”

Greetings scenesters. Today we are premiering a new track off the upcoming Senses Fail tribute album being released by Pacific Ridge Records, which can be purchased here. This time it’s the title-track off their fourth studio album, The Fire, a song which, you may remember, was previously included on Senses Fail’s Greatest Hits.

The culprits are Titans In Time. They are a Cleveland alternative band, currently in the middle of a twelve-day tour through the American Midwest, who offers a unique take on the track, throwing some of their own influences and imaginative perspective into the mix. The melodies are tight and enthusiastic, with some seriously good musicianship going into tackling the song. Who doesn’t love a good cover? Check out Titans In Time cover “The Fire” by Senses Fail below.



DS Exclusive: Fastfade (ffo: old Blink 182, Lagwagon) stream new album, “Happy If You Aren’t”

STTOOOKKKAAAGGEE!!… Oh, sorry. Is this thing typing? My cat just crossed the keys – a Cheshire cat – and out the front door. No worries, though. This band seems perfectly capable of chasing after it.

Fastfade are a group of well-meaning young F.S.P’s (fast sloppy punks) out of London kicking some cool palm-mutes and starry-eyed riffs, aggressive basslines with big-band breakdowns, and a drummer who, as far as my drummer fetish is concerned, kind of does it for me with his sped up, pop-punk simplicity. With sophistication in simpatico skate punk delivery, Fastfade can go “boo boo da, boo boo da” on the snare drum of my heart all day long, and maybe/maybe not, I let them get away with it.

This is one for the snotty-nosed and broken-hearted – fourteen tracks of progressive pop punk blending the best of those great bands we’re all so comfortable with under the covers, but when it comes to date-night, “Yeah, they were good until Dookie came out.” Relax. Fastfade is all “Netflix and chill.” No reason to be antsy. These are the golden daze. Backing vocals are on point throughout, with moments of power-pop undertones reminding us that skateboarders get to have friendships and girlfriends too, sometimes, like that night you went to bed with Tell All Your Friends and realized that the back-and-forth was actually pretty pleasant… Maybe it was just beer goggles. Songs like “Naked Attraction” are supplemented with All-esque inspired riffage, where happy/poppy tunes capitulate to themes of overthinking, loneliness and being a fucking weirdo. “These days in between/ strung out on caffeine/ making sense of what don’t make sense to me.”

Fastfade is coming of age. Hell, if they ever make it stateside, these boys are going to need a friendly liaison at the bar. I know you’ll be there when the time is right. Their new album, Happy If You Aren’t, releases December 14 on Umlaut Records and is available here for pre-order. You can stream that album below, and if not… then why not just help me kill myself, then? ‘Cause that’s what’s gonna fucking happen. Gawd. WTF!? Peace.



DS Exclusive: Wadeye (Anarcho, UK) Stream Latest EP “Spooneye With A Vengeance”

Manchester’s Wadeye have been good enough to give you Dying Scenesters an exclusive listen to their latest EP days ahead of its general release. Spooneye With a Vengeance is the third collection of music to date from the band. It features seven tracks of fierce, fiery yet immensely dance-able anarcho ska punk.

Taking the helm in terms of recording and mixing was Andy Dazzler of UK melodic hardcore act Dead Neck at Flush Studios, Manchester. The demented, politicised artwork has been provided by the immensely talented Flid Vicious. Handling distribution will be Pumpkin Records in the UK and Europe and No Time in the US.

The band, widely considered Manchester’s most dangerous, have scheduled the release of Spooneye With A Vengeance for this Wednesday. However, you lovely lot can check it out below. You’re most welcome.



DS Exclusive: Panhandler (ffo: Hot Water Music, Hard Girls) premiere new single, “Wherever That Is”

Here’s some new music out of Stockholm, Sweden to titillate your ear-holes. It’s a little bit country, a little bit punk, a little bit emo. Whatever you wanna call these guys (and lady) they’ve put together a righteous little indie tune that goes well with bands like The Menzingers, and Hard Girls.

Panhandler is gearing up to release their first full-length, Wherever That Is, on Trash Crusader Records (Europe) and Whisk and Key Records, (Australia) on December 8, 2018, following-up their 2016 EP, There Goes the Neighborhood. The band is fresh off a tour of The Outback, and promises the title-track to be “a painfully bittersweet, nostalgic tribute to past friends,” reminding us that, “no matter what separates you, the times you had will never go away.

Pre-orders for the album are available at Whisk and Key, and you can stream “Wherever That Is” below.



DS Exclusive: Italian HC band NOFU stream new EP, “Qui Ed Ora”

When I heard that my favorite Italian hardcore band, NOFU, was putting out new music, I jumped at the opportunity for an exclusive. I hopped on messenger and started up a chat and before you know it, I was beneficiary and custodian to exclusive content beholden to no one but myself. (and maybe a few of the band’s buds and whatnot) The weight of badassery fell squalidly on my shoulders, alone. Holy crap! What was I gonna’ write?

I first got the chance to see NOFU last year on their Thrashin’ the Bible Belt Tour, at my favorite local punk dive, and was absolutely blown away. The lead singer, Emanuele, was like seven feet, goddamn tall and radiating rock and roll eminence in cut-off jean shorts and high-kick glory. He had a voice like napalm and a smile like Jesus. Claudio, on guitar, was thrashing around in a performance reminiscent of Captain Sensible, but along with Bitto and Curzio (on bass and drums) terrorizing the place, these guys were playing the loud, fast shit.

The pit was ferocious (due props to my beloved hometown scene) and, needless to say, I gladly coughed up the measly 20 bucks for the vinyl, Interruzione, which has sense seen innumerous spins on my dusty, old table. I love this band. They are legitimately super badass. With influences ranging from Motörhead and Venom, Accused, Suicidal Tendencies, and Italian bands like Frammenti, Kina, and Stinky Rats to more post-hardcore influences like Crimpshrine and Hüsker Dü (who have a big influence on this new album, Qui Ed Ora) – the band knows their history, and, I think, could become a big part of it, if you let them.

NOFU is headed back on the road, embarking on a West Coast (U.S.) tour this month, with 14 stops from Tijuana to Washington, including one sold out show with The Cro-Mags and EYEHATEGOD. Qui Ed Ora won’t officially release until this February, however CD’s and cassettes are being made available for the tour via Carr’Amato Records and Reality is a Cult Records. Tapes and CD’s will be done FOR THIS TOUR ONLY!! So, if you’re lucky enough to catch these guys in the act, be sure and scoop one up. (or maybe two, so you can mail me a copy.) The February release will be on 7″ vinyl, however the band is still reaching out to labels. So, if you know a guy who knows a guy… cough, cough.

Qui Ed Ora is unbelievable. It’s a pleasant 4-track surprise that highlights the bands maturity, growth and dynamism as they depart from their hardcore/metal roots to touch on a transcendental time and element in punk rock music. Stream that EP and check out NOFU’s tour dates below.

“What we are, it has always been a postponement, omitted, of everything we do not have. Never could. Just beyond the fears. Just beyond the uncertainties. Just beyond the insecurities. Just beyond. The goal, the place, we are looking for. We aspire to. It’s so close, but we do not see it. What we call the path. The path, it is only the name of fear, of hesitation. Here and now, quotes of what we would like here and now, broken phrases. Silences. Redeemed and fragile.” (Lyrics to “Qui Ed Ora” from translation)

 



DS Exclusive: The Castor Troys stream new EP, “Legends Never Die”

The Castor Troys are a hard punk/rock band out of Hamilton, ON, for fans of Silverstein, Rise Against, and The Offspring. They will be self-releasing a new EP, Legends Never Die, on November 9, 2018. Luckily for all you young Dying Scensters, we’ve got the first-peak at those tracks here for you, today. The band will make the album available through CDBaby, here. Read that story and check out the exclusive stream below.



DS Exclusive:The Functional Citizens (pop-punk) stream new album, “Game Night”

Mid-terms are here and we have a band for you that’s not afraid to ask the important questions… like, “Trivial Pursuit or Scategories?” :D

It’s Game Night, and you’re invited to the party with The Functional Citizens, from Kalamazoo, MI,  who have been “putting the fun in functional” for the past three years… and with just as many releases.

They’ve been busy playing punk rock shows around the northern U.S., and cranking out material, working closely with Mustard Plug bassist Rick Johnson at Cold War Studios to put out some really great tunes for everybody. Themes range from the woes of white-collar working-class to the lost cause that is nerd-punker dating, and the classic tale of despair where you find that you’ve already paid for your french fries, but somehow end up stuck at window #2 through song after song, wondering if the fast-food employees are going to remember to include a straw in the bag for your Dr. Pepper.

This is classic, highly-caffeinated pop-punk music for fans of The Lillingtons, which at times sounds as if NoFX and Blink 182 were squished together in some sort of terrible chemical-shmelting accident to create the suit-and-tie wearing trio that is Functional Citizens. (Terrifying!)… and these guys are down to speed things up to take out the frustration of a day-to-day grind and let upper-management know that they can kiss off just in time for the weekend.

Throw in a dash of gamer fantasy to take the edge off, and you’ve got Game Night, set to release on Halloween on Smoking Cat Records. (That’s October 31, pumpkin-head.) Just go ask the Mushroom Man. You can order that album here, and check out the exclusive stream below.



Tightwire (ffo: The Queers, Teenage Bottle Rocket) stream video for new single, “Six Feet Deep”

Tightwire is a Minneapolis pop-punk band that has been gracing Mid-West stages since 2016. Their debut album, “Six Feet Deep” drops this Friday, (10/16/18) on Red Scare Industries, who have played host to bands like The Lillingtons, The Copyrights and TBR. They’ve hooked-up with Dying Scene for the scoop on the band’s new title-track music video.

Six Feet Deep is a woeful love ballad… kind of, except it clocks in at a-minute-and-a-half long. It goes well with The Queers’ classic, Debra Jean, and is for anyone with a broken-hearted “DNR” tattoo.

While I can’t boast one of those, I can say that I know the feeling well, and this is easy listening music on any lonely Saturday night.  It’s old-fashioned pop-punk for wallflowers and left-overs, skeezers, steezers, and sleazers. They’ve got a few rad dates coming up with Kung-Fu Necktie, Teenage Bottle Rocket, Dillinger 4, and OWTH, to check out if they come through your town. Be sure and pick up the album when it drops on Friday and peep the first-take of Tightwire’s new video for “Six Feet Deep” with those show dates below.



DS Exclusive: The Contenders (ska, rocksteady) premiere new song, “Double or Nothing”

It’s a good day for ska fans! Time to shine up your dancing shoes, pick your head up, and give tomorrow another whirl… (Today!) with this fresh new Jamaican beat about mulligans coming at you from Athens, Greece.

The Contenders are a soulful rocksteady band, originally conceived four years ago by two friends in Vathis Square, as a side-project. Since that time, their evolution has evinced itself in each new addition of colorful instrumentalists to the roster, providing eclectic melodies down to the jazzy roots. They’ve been picking up a bit of steam since 2017, when the current band line-up cemented itself into form, playing shows, and working with Vincent Fiorello (Less Than Jake) to release the new EP, “Jes Grew” on Paper + Plastick Records, out October 26 on flexi-disc. Order that phonosheet here.

The band came up blending legacies, the likes of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding with the sounds of the rudies. Decidedly coming into their own around 2017, with the current swinging seven-man line-up complementing each song with sexy trombone solos and saxophone arrangements. The Contenders have received a bit of industry love, of late- not to mention the love of the crowds for their intimate and lively performance- and we’ve got the exclusive first-take of their newest single “Double or Nothing” below… right in time for all the ghoulies and Frankenstein-folk to start skanking and mashing down your neighborhood street. I mean… I do it every Tuesday. Enjoy!



DS Exclusive: The Hanging Judge (Street Punk, GA) Stream Video for “Vultures”

The Hanging Judge has been kind enough to give you lovely Dying Scene readers the first glimpse of a new video for a previously unreleased track “Vultures”. The Atlanta-based, street punk unit features Chris May, aka Cheeto Mayhem of The Queers on bass and the tune used with their latest visuals was recorded at Joe Queer’s personal recording studio.

You can check out the video for “Vultures” below.



DS Exclusive: Captain Trips (skate-punk) stream new EP, “Stand By”

Here’s a few fresh cuts from South Coast, UK skate-punk band, Captain Trips. Their latest release, Stand By, comes out on Umlaut Records on the 5th and they’ve graciously allowed DS the exclusive premiere a few days early. Here’s what it is: dope lyrics, super cool bass lines, dual-guitar harmonies, chants, and a mix of heavier metal influences with those most exquisite fine-tunings that make solid punk music punk music, all packaged fresh with the seal of a post-apocalyptic kiss and what one can only assume is the UK skate-punk-scene absolutely exploding around them.

“Come down the rabbit hole with [Captain Trips]… and burn that fucker right into the ground!” they say in their Siren Song as the world burns in the constant fast-paced drumming of Andi Farrar with the underlying leads of dual guitarists, Rich and Phil, bouncing off each other arioso, and bassist Lee Warren compounding a few leads of his own.

Captain Trips is a fast melodic skate-punk band, for fans of The Offspring, No Use For a Name and Pears. From “Bottom of the River” where the band calls you in with lines like, “You are all my brothers to me,” and bleed you dry, “who we were at the bottom, we found the strength to cut the head off the snake,” to the reason of “The Voice”, “You’re the voice. Try to understand it. Make a noise and make it clear,” and unfettered rage of “Siren Song” which breaks down in a cacophony of emotion, “for love not hurt there has to be some sense left in fucking humanity!” This music is cutthroat, like a tiny pebble under the wheel of your skateboard. Aimed at “the enemies of human progress,” and the “tired anthems” of the old ways, but made assuredly for you, young skate-punk-loving-zombie-scene-heads. Stream Stand By below and order your copy here.

Captain Trip’s self-titled EP was released in April, 2016.
