Legendary hardcore punk band DYS is proud to announce a series of new Digital singles, beginning launching on November 8th. The band will release one song (available via iTunes, Amazon and others) each month, in multiple Digital formats, from November 2011 through March 2012, via Bridge Nine Records.
These songs feature the band’s all new line-up. Co-founders Dave Smalley (ex- Dag Nasty, All, Down by Law) and Jonathan Anastas (ex-Slapshot) are joined by guitar player Franz Stahl (Scream, ex-Foo Fighters), drummer Al Pahanish Jr. (ex- Powerman 5000) and guitar player Adam Porris (ex-Far From Finished).
A mix of new songs and covers, this is the band’s follow up to their live album, More Than Fashion: Live From the Gallery East Reunion, which was released in August, also on Bridge 9 Records.
The DYS single series will kick off on November 8th with the song “Wild Card,” which will be premiered exclusively one week prior (starting 11/1/2011) on RevolverMag.com.
The follow-up, a love letter to Boston’s unique musical history, “Sound of Our Town” is scheduled to debut on December 13th, “Unloaded” will follow on January 17th, 2012, “(We are) The Road Crew,” a staple of the band’s live set since their reunion, will be released on February 14th, 2012. A fifth new song will be announced in early 2012 and released that March.
Produced by Andrew “Mudrock” Murdock (Avenged Sevenfold, Riverboat Gamblers), recorded at his Hobby Shop Studio, West in Los Angeles, and mastered by Dave Shultz at D2, these are the band’s first new songs released since reforming last year for the Gallery East Reunion in Boston.
