"Dyne Side’s lead single is an ode to all the visionaries out there looking to keep their hustle alive and rep their city while they do it."
- The Noise
DYNE SIDE is a post-hardcore band from Miami, FL. August 11th marks the release of Immigrant, their sophomore LP, four years after their last.

With the opening track, “An Argument With Myself”, the band draws a heavier influence reminiscent to Underoath. The guitar tones are raw, and there is a bass heavy leading riff delivering a punch in the vein of Norma Jean. Tracks like "Nothing to Lose" and "Ask Columbus" are the album's hits, swaying back and forth from their heavier and melodic sides, guided with a strong song structure. “Despite” is the somber pop hit on the record with production nodding to Sade and Nine Inch Nails, and with vocals in tune with Glassjaw and Head Automatica. Vocalist Emman Costa Maya has an exceptional range, and it is particularly showcased on this track.
The record relates to a lot to the human condition and is explained through many different perspectives. Immigrant has a lot of open ended stories being told throughout that allow the listener a chance to connect with the tracks. The title is fitting too, as bass player Ariel Ramirez came to America with his parents on a boat when he was 3 years old.
Immigrant was recorded and mixed by Paolo Angulo at The Heat Studios, and was mastered by Kris Crummett (Sleeping With Sirens, Issues, Drop Dead, Gorgeous) at Interlace Audio.
