Jakob Danger previews new music in hilarious music video

Yes, the youngest Armstrong is back with more music. Jakob uploaded a video titled “What Is This” to his youtube channel… and the video features the teenager playing guitar, boredom, dancing to karate fighting with an appearance of mom (Hi Addie :3 ) and it is all kinds of wonderful.

The tune is simplistic and done acoustically, but also fun and upbeat to narrate the hilarity throughout the video. Definitely excited to see what Jakob Danger brings to the music scene with his personality, humor and of course, the alternative Cali-vibed music he is creating. Keep it up Jakob Danger!

3 Songs Released from Jakob Armstrong’s Solo Project: Jakob Danger

Green Day frontman and guitarist, Billie Joe Armstrong has some talented kids with music born in their veins. Both sons, Joey and Jakob, have embarked following in their father’s footsteps to music. While Joey is working with longtime band Swimmer’s (previously Emily’s Army), younger brother Jakob has decided to go the solo route and working on creating his own career as a musician as he recently signed to Burger Records.

Three songs have been released via Soundcloud and Youtube on the younger Armstrong’s solo project, self titled as Jakob Danger. Jakob Armstrong’s songs were posted in late June and the suspense is already building in anticipation for this album to be released.

So far, the sound is phenomenal. Classic Cali vibe and cool acoustic settings, with some songs featuring older brother Joey on the drums. The melodic voice behind “King of the World,” “Waiting to Dance” and “Don’t Try” doesn’t sound like it’s coming from someone who’s just 16 years old…already mind blowing.

Check out the songs below:

This project has promise, and it’s one for any die hard Green Day fan to get behind… already in anticipation for this album’s release!

Bring Me The Horizon release video for new single “Throne”.

Say what you’d like, but Bring Me The Horizon are back and in a BIG way; as the new single for “Throne” hits hard in a new direction for the band.

“Throw me to the wolves, Tomorrow I’ll come back leader of the whole pack…Beat me black and blue, every word will shape me, every scar will build my throne!”

BMTH Vocalist,Oliver Sykes, sings as the chorus blends into a electronic breakdown in the new song for the band entitled “Throne”. Proper title for such a powerful song matched with imagery that looks like it was lifted from the popular Game Of Thrones itself.

“Throne” is the third single that Bring Me The Horizon has released over the past few months in previewing what the new album will sound like (Such as “Drown” and “Happy Song”). Sound wise, the band has been taking a new turn after the release of highly popular “Sempiternal” in 2013, as this new album.”That’s The Spirit”, will be quite the followup. BMTH showed their softer sides in “Drown”, but brought back the action one knows and loves about BMTH in both “Happy Song” and “Throne.”

“Throne” being more electronic is definitely a new feel for many hardcore BMTH fans, but the band has been evolving and changing over the past few years with releases, and the fanbase has been changing alongside them. With the previous album “Sempiternal” using many synth elements as well, the metal core vibe was gone and had very little of Sykes screaming that he had become known for in the bands early works, such as “Suicide Season” or “Count Your Blessings”.

Sykes described the new album as being about where society stands as a generation and that message can be noticed if you listen to the lyrics. Our generation uses music as so much more than just entertainment, as some depend on it as a sort of lifeline which can be heard from the chorus of “Happy Song”, where Sykes belts out ,“if I sing along a little fucking louder to a happy song I’ll be alright” which follows the scarily short verse about suffering from depression.

“Throne” is the opposite, as it is highly empowering and just listening to it makes one feel like they can do practically anything and stand their ground against something so much bigger… whether the problem or fear be physical or not.

With more synth sounds, new relatable lyrics and changes comes a new side of Bring Me The Horizon, that I am personally really excited for, and hope that others are just as excited as well.
