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.)

SPOTLIGHT : Bryan Howell and The Standalones

Showcasing artists in the scene is a huge part of this blog, and today we will dive into the story and inspiration behind musician and alt. rocker, Bryan Howell. Hailing originally from New York, the musician made the move to the big city of Nashville, TN for a chance at recognition and stardom in his music career. Being inspired by vintage rock and roll, Howell makes a name for himself through putting everything he has out into his music, which is displayed clearly in his new album entitled Take The Risk.

With a few singles released under the name Bryan Howell & The Standalones, this alternative rocker has a shot at making it into on-air radio, with the grit and guitars very reminiscent of many rock and alternative icons.  The track “Apologies And Promises” can appeal to almost any generation who just loves the classic rock and roll sound, while Howell’s other single, “Your Saturday Night” gives a faster-paced sound with the same classic grit many will enjoy. With Howell’s unique voice, “Your Saturday Night” makes it a great track to add to any alt. rock lover’s collection.
