Single Player: "AC/DC Changed My Life" (Punknews Exclusive)

Single Player: “AC/DC Changed My Life” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Single Player.

In the video for "AC/DC Changed My Life," frontman Sean Neumann chomps down on Cheerios while he gets serenaded by a crew of six inch Angus Youngs. Despite the title, the tune borrows from classic pop punk and 90s alt-rock and sits comfortably somewhere between Guided by Voices and Weezer.

Speaking to Punknews about the track, Neumann said, "People are probably going to see the song and think it's pretty goofy, so we wanted to make it fun. I also now have a Halloween costume for the next few years."

The tune is off the upcoming EP At The Buzzer out Feb 24 via Rat King Records. Pre-order it right here and check out the new video below!

Dine Alone and Buzz Records announce merger

Dine Alone and Buzz Records, two of the most prominent independent record labels in Toronto have announced a merger. Buzz was founded by Ian Chai and grew out of the 2010s noise-punk scene that made its home at the Garage venue in Toronto's Chinatown. It's been behind a number of critically-acclaimed releases from acts like Greys, Odonis Odonis, Weaves, Dilly Dally, Twist, and HSY. Joel Carriere's Dine Alone Records emerged from St. Catharines, Ontario in 2005 alongside local acts Alexisonfire and City and Colour. It's grown into one of Canada's biggest rock indies, with releases over the years from Attack in Black, Bedouin Soundclash, The Dirty Nil, The Flatliners as well as becoming the Canadian home for a growing stable of US acts.

There's no word yet on what changes the merger will make to either label's upcoming slate of releases, but you can find statements from the principles of both labels below.
