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.

DS Interview: Josiah Hughes (Blink-155 Podcast)

Two Canadian sellouts started a podcast in which they discuss every single blink-182 song. They titled it Blink-155, named after the amount of songs the band had at the podcast’s inception. Two years in, Exclaim! journalist Josiah Hughes (also of Pre Nup) and major label shill Sam Sutherland (also of Junior Battles) are well past 100 episodes and make over $1,300 a month in Patreon support.

To get to the bottom of this senseless endeavor, I interrupted Hughes mid-settling in to his new Montreal apartment to talk about if Dude Ranch is a dirty joke, being friends with the singer of Imagine Dragons, and why he started a blink-182 podcast. You can read our discussion below.

Blink-155 Releases “Free Punk Lyrics” Compilation (not for free)

Blink-155, a podcast run by members of Junior Battles and Pre Nup, has released a 39-song compilation of artists using lyrics from a Tumblr page called Free Punk Lyrics.

As explained on Bandcamp:

“‘Free punk lyrics’ was a joke Tumblr started by Alex and Josiah in 2011 where they would write absurd punk lyrics in four minutes or less. The lyrics were posted online under the pretense that upcoming punk bands could use them for free. It’s all right there in the name. 

In 2018, listeners of the Blink-155 podcast started making real songs out of the lyrics posted on Tumblr. 39 tracks later, the Free Punk Lyrics Compilation is here.”

The album is available on Bandcamp and can be streamed 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.

Introducing Female-Fronted Punk Act: The Sonder Bombs

Occasionally, I’ll find a band that speaks to my soul in a very serendipitous way. A lot of times, this happens because I’m going through some emotional turbulence or traveling a lot for work. I’ve been realizing a lot of the music I listen to is topically similar and aesthetically repetitive. Feeling a certain way in the era of #MeToo and the pain felt coming in on the coat tails of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and all of the fallout after, I finally found a band that’s really out there punching back. I’m a little late to this party, but just I found The Sonder Bombs. Let me tell you, this band is it, sis. Their latest album came out in October called Modern Female Rockstar, and it is everything and then some ukulele. Not to mention Willow Hawks has the voice of the punk rock angel of my dreams.

This band is incredibly honest and relatable because of the content of their songs. I don’t think I’ve come across a band that takes some fairly serious topics every woman encounters and makes those moments a source of power quite like The Sonder Bombs do. Covering important topics like the power and consequences of coming into female sexuality and having to work harder in male dominated industry. To me, this content is very real, at times painful, and truly appreciated. “I don’t want to be your merch girl, I want to be your god damn idol”, girl same. If the future really is female, I cannot wait to see where this band goes. Check them out below.

Introducing Pop Punk Act: Halogens

My New Year’s resolution for 2019 was to have more diverse playlists. I’ll admit it, I get hyper fixated on a band or song and listen to them over and over. On my quest to spend more time listening to new music, I discovered Halogens and I’ve repeated the old pattern. I’ve taken solace in breaking my new year’s resolution because of how dope this band actually is. The catchy melodies are what caught my attention and their unique interpretation of romance and the human psyche is what earned them a spot in the heavy rotation of music I cannot stop listening to.

More importantly, they just released their sophomore EP called Happy Hour. Halogens have refined their sound while covering a variety of emotional musings. They touch upon completely relatable topics like not being able to pull-off wearing a denim jacket, which may or may not be my own personal problem. Let’s face it, we cannot all be Deaglans. So, if you want to get in your feels while bopping around, you should check them out below!

Introducing Chicago Pop-Punk Act: Tougher Than You Thought

I’m going to admit it, I miss Myspace. A whacky time for youthful exploration of the important stuff; cool bands, HTML code, and those weird bulletins that would kill you if you didn’t re-post them in 30 minutes. Listening to Tougher Than You Thought, feels a lot like this. They sprinkle in a little twenty-something heartache with a sound all their own. Their debut EP Check, Please has had me in my feels since the first time I heard it.

Their song “Open Book “ is the culmination of dope guitar riffs, catchy drumbeats, and lyrics that I would have probably used for a picture caption or two. Not to mention, the band members themselves have an extremely awesome back-story, according to their facebook “2 members of the band have parents who won the immigration lottery (1 in 900,000 odds) in their home countries”. This band is dynamic and worth a listen, check them out below. &Hearts;

Introducing Pop Punk Act: Cassettes (FFO The 80’s + Pop Punk)

From the deep depths of battling seasonal effective disorder, and wistfully thinking about replacing my scarves and fleeced lined tights with shorts and sunglasses—the Cassettes appeared. I desperately needed a mid-January pick-me-up. I had a need for some serious feel good tunes. The Cassettes came in clutch with the release of their debut LP “Wild Heart”. Their light-hearted and high energy 80’s flavored pop punk is exactly what I needed. What can I say; I’m a sucker for catchy 80’s music and solid keyboard solos. This band is the exact slice of summer I have been craving on this miserably cold day. Warm your soul and stream “Wild Heart” below.
