Indie Vision Music proudly presents their first ever Punk Rock free digital compilation titled “Punk Never Dies Vol. 1″ launching for Free Today! This compilation is split into 2 files to make for easier downloading. The 2 files will start in alphabetical order so you must download the 2 files if you want to hear the entire thing (and every song/band). Each file is approximately 175MB.

I am so proud to be presenting bands as diverse as The Altar Billies, which feature legendary singer/songwriter/guitarist Mike Stand who helped inspire a whole generation of punk rockers with his time in The Altar Boys, to Mxpx who helped usher in a new era of “punk rock” in the 90′s that wasn’t afraid to have a good time and still wear “faith” on it’s sleeve, to Dogwood who singer Josh Kemble declared “My Faith in you will never die….” and on to a whole new crop of bands that will hopefully re-establish what it means to be punk rock and inspired by Faith, here in 2011. I encourage you to check out this free digital download (going live on November 1st), listen to all the songs, and finally visit all the bands on their social media sites listed below. Support these hard working bands by going to their shows, buying their merch, buying their albums, telling your friends about them, and spreading the word. Every little bit helps. Enjoy!

    Holy crap. The new Blood and Water song is amazing. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the comp!

    You should partner with a cheap distribution partner like CD Baby ($35) and release this on all the popular music sites (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify) and donate the proceeds to a non-profit. The hardest part would be getting label support, but that is easy enough.

    Reply

    • Brandon says:

      That’s a good idea but it would be very difficult on my end to try and get approval from some of the bands and their labels. Plus then I have to handle the money and make sure it gets distributed to the correct non-profit without people thinking I am holding on to it. It’s just easier to do things for free plus it really helps promote independent music. Thanks for the suggestion though :)

    • Nicole says:

      The hardest part is easy enough? lol

  4. DT says:

    Awesome, downloading now.

    And everyone should also go here and download some music from Vincible for some more punk with a strong spiritual message:

    I’m curious how the DL is working for others. So far, I’ve tried Dling it twice and it has stopped in the middle, giving me an invalid file. Comments?

  8. Brandon says:

    Attention everyone: We are having traffic issues relating to the number of people trying to download the files all at once. It is slowing the download speed and causing issues for some of you. I did test it yesterday on two computers and it downloaded perfect for me so I do know that it works. My suggestion is just to visit the site later in the day and try to download again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  26. Thanks Brandon!

    Covenant has a special place in my heart, but I and the wife were thrilled to hear Watashi Wa, Dogwood, and MxPx. The band that stood out most though was From the Eyes of Servants, great stuff.

    So this is what they call “punk rock” in 2011? No thanks…

    Excellent compilation! Great job.

  29. Wretched says:

    Allan, you forgot to say,”Hey you kids… GET OFF MY LAWN!!!”

    Ok, Allan and I probably agree that there’s some songs on here that we both have trouble calling PUNK, but there’s way more real punk on here to satisfy the title and the project as a whole.

    • Allan Aguirre says:

      “Allan, you forgot to say,’Hey you kids… GET OFF MY LAWN!!!’”

      Hilarious! :)

    • Brandon says:

      “Punk” can be defined by different people in different ways. It’s all based on perceptions, backgrounds, and diy attitude. I think just the fact that this is a totally free digital compilation with no strings attached and featuring many struggling artists without label backing, is pretty punk rock if you ask me. PS- There probably are a couple of songs that wouldn’t fit the traditional tag of “punk” but as is the story with all genres, things change. Hey Allan, you should of sent me a Scatered Few track ;)

  38. Dj Wednesday here just saying THANK YOU BRANDON! for giving my band the opportunity to be on Punk Never Dies. We really appreciate it. It is really rad to be on a comp with bands like Dogwood, Mxpx, Craigs Brother…They are some of our punk rock hero’s. Furthermore, it is really rad to be on a comp with some of our new friends Grave Robber, and Head Noise. I would encourage all who read this to check them out as well as their other Grrr Records, and Rottweiler Records label mates. Thanks again and God Bless.–Dj.wed

    Is it me or are the lyrics to the Eleventyseven song a little suggestive of drinking and partying (“Everybody’s gettin’ wasted”)? If I’m wrong about what that’s about, tell me. I just think it’s an odd message from a Christian band. One of my favorite songs on here though, without a doubt.

    Good Luck Varsity (Liars & Thieves) & The Sower and the Soils (The Good Soil) are my two favorites off of this comp, and I had never heard of either of them before downloading this.
    I was excited to see Dogwood, Craig’s Brother and Watashi Wa on there too! I got the privilege of interviewing Watashi Wa on my radio show back in college, and it was a blast getting to meet them.
    Thanks for putting this together!

  42. Sam says:

    Fantastic comp! One thing I noticed that seemed kinda funny: the All at Risk song is fantastic, don’t get me wrong, but there wasn’t really anything “punk” about that particular song at all. But again, I’m really liking this compilation, good mix of pop punk and punk, this HAD to take a lot of time to get together.

      what now?

      that’s not possible. the two files are archived in zip format which you can uncompress with windows and get all the music files out. then you can add them to your windows media player library or however you use it.
