The Dahmers: "Cut Me Down" (Punknews Exclusive)

The Dahmers: “Cut Me Down” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new tune by The Dahmers.

As you can tell by their name, The Dahmers are horror-punk fanatics. So, on "Cut Me Down," they bridge the gap between the different disciplines of scare-jams and take a little bit of Cramps reverb, a little bit of Misfits b-movie reverence, and A LOT of pop-punk energy. The result is a snappy slasher that at times, could pass for an early Oingo Boingo track.

Their new album, In the Dead of Night is out April 7 and you can order that right here. Meanwhile, check out "Cut me Down" right now!

DFL Streams 'The Tape Show!' (Punknews Exclusive)

DFL Streams 'The Tape Show!' (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, we have got a Saturday treat for you and what a treat it is! Today, Punknews is THRILLED to stream The Tape Show, the "alternate album" by hardcore heroes DFL!

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the band's fantastic Grateful album. But, when they released that album twenty years ago, they also released an alternate cassette version of that album called The Tape Show.

The Tape Show was really cool because while it included most of the tracks from Grateful, it also included alternate versions, live cuts, out-takes, and skits and was mixed like a homemade mixtape. Now that the release is twenty years old, DFL and Epitaph are working on a re-issue. But, in the meantime, for the first time ever, the band is streaming the whole release for free! Check that out below along with a short interview with the band's guitarist Monty Messex!
