Boise punk label Hidden Home Records has made everything on their Bandcamp “pay-what-you-want” for the rest of the month. All donated proceeds will serve as a birthday gift to their mail guy, Mike.
“[Mike] has happily chosen to do all of our mail order from Idaho since I moved across the country for my career. He is a one-in-a-million friend and deserves the world. Happy birthday Mike, I couldn’t do it without you. For the rest of September, everything on our Bandcamp is pay-what-you-want in celebration of MIIIIKE. All donations will go to him, cuz we rarely break even as it is. Link in bio.”

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.
California punkers Audio Karate have announced the re-release of their debut album “Space Camp” on vinyl after a long period of inactivity.
Pre-orders are available at the Wiretap Records and Hidden Home Records web stores. You can see a video interview with the band detailing the re-release and reminiscing on the making of the album below.
Today we get to show the other side of a songwriter we’ve championed on Dying Scene. Casey Keele of the band Wicked Bears (who’s latest album “Tuning Out” was in Dying Scene owner Dave Buck’s Top 10 of 2017) – has been writing songs and playing basement and living room shows as MCKC for almost a decade. Today we’re featuring his new song “Baker,” a folky, organ driven track off of his new EP “IS OK”, slated to be released on April 14th through Hidden Home.
Keele had this to say about the track:
“Baker is a solitary town located in the Mojave Desert of California. It’s one of the only cities you’ll pass as you drive from Barstow to Las Vegas. This song is an imagining of what it would be like to live there.”
You can hear the new track below. Pre-order “IS OK” at MCKCinfinity.com, and if you’re in the Salt Lake area, consider grabbing a ticket to the EP release show on April 14th at the Beehive in Salt Lake City (666 S. State Street).
No other details have been announced yet but you can stream the band’s last release, a self-titled EP, here.
Dying Scene is proud to bring you the exclusive premiere of Corona, California-based pop-punk band Casual Friday‘s new music video, “Weekend Forever.”

Casual Friday was just announced to play The Fest in Gainesville.
