Orange pop-punk band Dive At Dawn releases a new single titled “Shrink” on Thursday.
Here is band member Andrew Rice’s description of the song: “The track kicks off with a cool filtered guitar riff, and then it breaks out into a massive post-punk / emocore type rhythm, with vocals that make me think of artists like Taking Back Sunday, Papa Roach, Funeral For A Friend, or The Used, among others. The song’s bridge is heavier and darker, with big down-tuned guitar riffs and heavy half-tempo drums that add more weight to the track.”
Guess we’ll have to wait until Thursday to see if we agree … or we can watch this video now:
Hey, does that sound like the kind of song/band you’d like to hear live? Then go to Programme Skate & Sound this Friday, when Dive At Dawn shares the bill with Forever Emerald, Iridescent (CA), Viridity and S.S. Something.

Over in Huntington Beach, glammy indie rockers Tokyo Lucky Hole–who we previously featured here–just announced a new video for the single “The Boys (And a Bottle)” from their recently released sophomore album Satanic Mystery Feast.
“The Boys (And a Bottle)” was shot on a VHS camcorder by writer/director Blaine Fuller (brother to Tokyo Lucky Hole front man Clay Fuller), who concocted a superhero spoof set to power pop hooks with retro rock and doo wop elements. Blaine says he dreamt up the concept “in response to superhero cinema mundanity, 90’s nostalgia overkill, and the love of strippers.”
Let’s take a look, shall we:
