Crash The Calm will be releasing their new album, How’ve You Been?, next Friday, May 19th. The album is up for pre-order right now and each bundle comes with an instant download of the two singles “The Ambient Sound of Traffic” and “Irish Exit” (which you can also stream below). The band has an alternative/rock sound that should be right up the alley for fans of Brand New, Balance and Composure, and Moving Mountains. Give the first two singles a stream, and if you like what you hear, make sure you pre-order the new album.
Our general forum’s infamous “food thread” is putting together a fun little “Chopped/Iron Chef” like competition. If you’re interested in participating, check out the thread and rules:
Anybody can participate as long as you meet the deadlines. If you miss one week don’t worry! There will be more than one opportunity to participate. Anybody can be a contestant or a judge. You can participate every time we do this or come and go as you please.
Pierce the Veil have been going strong for ten years now. The band is comprised of singer Vic Fuentes, guitarist Tony Perry, bassist Jaime Preciado, and drummer Mike Fuentes. The band has endured exactly zero line-up changes. This is a testament to the bond this fun-loving four piece has. While some old bands are back doing ten year album anniversary tours, Pierce the Veil are playing songs from their first album A Flair for the Dramatic on its We Will Detonate Tour.
This new interview is a retrospective of sorts. In under twenty minutes the band discusses their inception, their side projects, sources of inspiration, their song writing process, and what’s next.
Super American return with their new album, Disposable. The songs are jams through and through. “Sloppy Jazz” opens the album with a high energy. The EP contains seven songs and each of them offers something to catch your ear. Whether it’s the melody or lyrics, Super American has it covered. You’ll be wanting to sing along to these songs after the first listen. And the lyrics are simple, but still thoughtful, enough to quickly learn them.
