Avril Lavigne on Mark Hoppus’s Podcast

Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne is on the latest episode of After School Radio.

I was really excited to work with you. To be honest, you’re one of my favourite artists. ‘Dude Ranch’ and ‘Enema Of The State’, those were the records I was listening to in high school and as a teenager and I feel like they were really impactful on me as I was coming into my own musical identity.

”So when I had the opportunity to work with you, which was over Zoom, which was different. I was so excited and I was really impressed with how efficient you are in the studio. You write, you record yourself, you can engineer, you sing, you’re playing. So having you on the album is a huge honour for me. So I’m really excited about our collaboration.

Weatherstate – “Headstone” (Video Premiere)


Today I’m beyond thrilled to share the latest music video for a UK-based punk band called Weatherstate for their song “Headstone.” The song comes from their upcoming Rude Records set called Never Better, out everywhere on February 11th. The band shared this about the new single:

Probably the second softest song on the record, and not being as morbid as the name might suggest, ‘Headstone’ is about trying to make something out of ourselves in the time we have here. It’s okay to go through periods of life unhappy and that’s what makes the good bits all the better. ‘Catch me I don’t want to come down’ specifically relates to friends being around when you need a safety net, and how important it is to have the support network that can get you through those monotonous times. We’re only around here for so long, and that’s the way it is, we shouldn’t beat ourselves up too much, and it’s completely okay to sometimes just roll with the punches.

I also had a chance to catch up with lead vocalist, Harry Hoskins, before the release of Never Better. If you’re enjoying the singles that have hit the streets thus far, consider pre-ordering the record here.
