Our Thanks to Lavisher

My thanks to Lavisher for sponsoring the website this week.

The band recently their new music video for “Syzygy.” The song comes from the band’s debut, self-titled, EP, which isup on Spotify and Apple Music.

Lavisher are a rock outfit from Chicago that often draw comparison to Failure, A Perfect Circle, and Queens of the Stone Age. The band describes their darkly uplifting songwriting as “minimalist poetry with stabs of virtuosity.” Front-man and principal songwriter Gavin Cushman III softens the hard edges with restrained melodic vocals while drummer Idin Alexander pounds rhythms into calculated eruptions.

Sons of Stereo Release “West Coast”

Sons of Stereo have released their debut single, “West Coast,” to all digital outlets. This alternative rock group, based out of Kansas City, blends scene staples The Maine and Fall Out Boy with the modern indie/pop flavoring of groups like Bad Suns and Young The Giant. The aptly titled song captures the vibe perfectly.

This single was produced by Kevin Gates (Never Shout Never, The Ready Set) and Nashville-based producer Andrew Pacheco and there will be more music from the band coming very soon. The video for the song can be found on YouTube, and you can follow the band’s social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) for tour dates and to stay up to date on when new music is released.

My Thanks to MxPx

MxPx released a new album this week and it’s really good. Seriously! I like it, longtime and more casual fans are talking about how much they like it in our forums, and it’s something you should check out. It’s got this youthful energy to it that feels like a throwback to the late 90’s while also being fresh and just fun. You can tell the band had a blast making this one.

Check it out now on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon, YouTube, or wherever you stream your music. Vinyl and CDs can be bought directly from the band themselves at MxPx.com.

Hailed by Rock Sound Magazine as “quite possibly the next great pop-punk band,” Belmont is stepping up to the plate with their debut self-titled full-length album which is slated to hit stores on August 17th. Belmont spent the better part of the last two years racking up miles and fans through constant touring with the likes of Have Mercy, Hot Mulligan, Capstan, and more in promotion of their previous release Between You & Me. The EP was celebrated by fans and critics alike, gaining millions of streams and views across digital music platforms. As a shining example of what’s to come; Belmont’s new single “Hollowed Out” touts a superior level of musicianship for the band. The forthcoming album was mixed and mastered by Dan Korneff (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore) and engineered by Jason Inguagiato at Graphic Nature Studio.

My Thanks to Foxera

My thanks for Foxera for sponsoring the website this week. Foxera just released a new video for their song “Memories” featuring Tilian Pearson on vocals. I read multiple people in our forums talking about how this was one of their favorite songs Tilian’s been featured on in years. So, that already makes this worth checking out, but if you think you’ve got some vocal chops yourself, the band is also currently looking for a new singer. They plan to record a collection of songs with producer Taylor Larson (Periphery, I See Stars, Veil of Maya, Asking Alexandria) in the near future and are searching for “the voice of their band.”

Curious for more information? Check out their website.

Foxera Release Video for “Memories;” Looking for Vocalist

Foxera have debuted their video for “Memories.” The song features a collaboration with Tilian Pearson of Dance Gavin Dance on vocals. When describing the song and video the band said:

The song reflects on the moments in our lives that feel like we aren’t in control of our hardships and struggles. We must remind ourselves to choose to focus less on what we can’t change and more on what we can. The video catalogs the confusion felt when those moments and our memories get the best of us.

Foxera are a melodic rock band out of Phoenix, AZ and are currently getting ready to record a diverse collection of debut songs with producer Taylor Larson (Periphery, I See Stars, Veil of Maya, Asking Alexandria). They are on the search for the voice of their band and encourage anyone interested to visit their website to learn more, contact the band, and preview their other songs.

My Thanks to Babygotbacktalk

My thanks to Babygotbacktalk for sponsoring the website this week. So, it’s the weekend, you’re looking for something new to listen to, right? If you’re into bands like The Matches or Chumped, this is going to be right in your wheelhouse. It’s clever, violin-powered, and the band described it as “D-I-Why?-because-we-gotta punk,” which is just damn good copywriting if you ask me. You can grab the EP right now on Bandcamp, and, at the very least give a song or two a spin.
