STREAM : Romance & Rebellion – “Boys Don’t Cry”

Finding a name for themselves in the social media digital age, Los Angeles musicians Romance and Rebellion (David LaViola (Guitar, Lead Vocals), Aaron Medina (Guitar, Harmony Vocals), Aleksander James (Guitar, Harmony Vocals), Brandon Davis (Bass, Vocals), Kyle Jordan Mueller (Drums) broke into the music scene in 2015. After the release of their debut EP in June 2016, they had to opportunity to take the stage at influential festivals such as Warped Tour and SXSW, and even headlined Emo Nite LA.  With a few years now under their belt, Romance and Rebellion are currently promoting their sophomore EP release, Amps & Anthems.

The lead single from the record is titled “Boys Don’t Cry” and is dedicated to breaking down the traditional gender stereotypes associated with daily interactions between men and women. Highlighting this factor, LaViola shares the deeper message behind the track stating, Boys don’t have to be ‘boys’…girls don’t have to be ‘girls’…and everyone should be able to rock a little pink.  ‘BOYS DON’T CRY’ is an anthem for anyone who is anything but normal.”

Amps & Anthems is detailed as having the right mixture of ” emo-studded angst, dripping with candy-coated heartache, wrapped in youthfully rebellious pop rock” says LaViola, as the album signifies a huge stepping stone in the band’s overall career and the path to success.

Amps & Anthems is available for purchase through the bands |Webpage|.

SPOTLIGHT : SCIENTIST

Diving deep into the metalcore scene of Chicago, I recently discovered SCIENTIST. SCIENTIST include guitarist/vocalist Eric Plonka, guitarist/vocalist Patrick Auclair, drummer Justin Cape, vocalist Barry Kotarba, and bassist Mathew Milligan and are currently gearing up for their third album release this spring and hails influence from the diverse comic book worlds of Grant Morrisson’s series, The Invisibles. The upcoming record titled Barbelith, details the ever-mystifying search for one’s self and the meaning of life, as the name hails from what is known as a “placenta” of human knowledge and connection in the comic book lore.

SCIENTIST spoke on the effort put forward for Barbelith, as it pushed the band musically to a new level and new experiences with production, “Barbelith will be our first record featuring a single, full-time vocalist, having historically opted for a mix of instrumental tracks and a revolving cast of guest vocalists. Barry Kotarba  was brought on board just a couple months before we began recording, and a series of synchronicities were gradually made evident to him the themes and ideas that would become Barbelith, one story of a single soul’s perspective within humanity’s search for truth and self.”

Barbelith is set to release on April 13, 2018 and is currently available for preorder online |Here|.

Watch : Green Day “Still Breathing”

The monumental release of Green Day‘s 12th studio album, Revolution Radio took diehard fans for a ride, but the band isn’t done just yet. With a huge tour announced for North America, Green Day also released an emotional video for Revolution Radio and a popular fan favorite track, “Still Breathing”.

“Still Breathing” is heavily influenced by Billie Joe Armstrong’s own struggles from the frontman’s 2012/2013 stint in rehab for alcohol abuse and the isolation and lost feeling is heavily mirrored with the music video, setting an emotional tone right off the bat.  The video also showcases other people within the shots, sharing this overwhelming feeling of being lost, which is a very beautiful and creative way to develop the music video along with the emotional tones of the song.

The climax of the video shows fellow Green Day members, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool, playing alone in a warehouse…just patiently waiting for their frontman to return.

(Not going to lie, I shed a few tears…Green Day fans it’s a tough one.)

Watch the emotional video for “Still Breathing” below the jump, and make sure to catch Green Day on tour now by purchasing tickets here or purchase Revolution Radio or any cd here!

Music and Media: Blink 182 “Bored To Death” Covers Sweep The Internet

blink-182-all-american-low-2016-tour-dates-poster-600x454.jpgSomething has to be said about the massive wave of 2000’s pop-punk nostalgia we are getting from the music scene this year…And with this comes new music from some of our all time favorites, Blink 182. From last year’s breakup and lineup changes removing Tom Delonge for Alkaline Trio‘s Matt Skiba… the band has been working on new material and touring with the new lineup.

Now, Blink have announced a new album called California, which is set to be released on July 1st, 2016. California will be special as a comeback record, as it will be the first album in 5 years from Blink 182, and the first including Skiba.

With the announcement of the album, also came tour news and the new song that has the internet and fans rejoicing, “Bored To Death”.  Bringing in an eerie “Adam’s Song” likeness and style of older Blink 182 with heavy basslines and Mark’s vocals, it’s no surprise it is a huge hit among fans as the band makes their comeback.

The song even sparked internet creators to do various covers, including one in particular from Youtuber Alex Melton. Although the original recording is the official lineup of Mark, Travis and Matt… this Youtube musician took it a step further with his cover to mimic the iconic vocals of old vocalist and guitarist, Tom Delonge.

Alex states, “I was curious to know what the new Blink-182 single would sound like if Tom was still in the band, so I recorded a version doing my best Mark and Tom impressions, and just trying to get a passable attempt at Travis’s ridiculous drum parts.”

We commend your talent Alex, to give such an interesting take on the new song (and giving all our hearts a bit of homage to the old Blink lineup and Delonge) as it gives a dynamic that is so unique in itself coming from another musician so inspired by the band.

Check out the cover below and make sure to preorder California here or purchase tickets to the tour here!

Stories For Monday Is Here!

The highly anticipated album, Stories For Monday, from The Summer Set is finally here!

The album plays out as a comeback album for The Summer Set, although never officially broken up, the band did almost give up on music a year ago before coming back together to write Stories For Monday, making it unique with it’s themes and lyrics.Along with the soft vocals of front man Brian Logan Dales, this album is definitely something special to the band, and something new and unique to share with their audience.

The track “All In” definitely fits the vibe for a comeback record, as it highlights all the current band members and the moment they came back together as a band to continue making music and continue on as friends.

Make sure to purchase Stories For Monday and catch The Summer Set on tour in May, as well as dates on the Vans Warped Tour this summer!

Bring Me The Horizon release video for ‘Follow You’

Bring Me The Horizon have just released a brand new video for the track “Follow You” off of their 5th studio album released earlier this year, That’s The Spirit.

The video has an eerie,  apocalyptic vibe which was not what most fans expected for this song… but definitely gives the song a whole new image and feeling. There are many graphic scenes, violence, some societal commentary and even zombies. It’s definitely a war zone to say the least.

Although different than expected, the internet has already spread a few memes of the video’s main character… and it’s pretty entertaining.

All in all, the video is beautifully done and definitely sends the message that That’s The Spirit embodies as an album.
