Teespring teamed up with a bunch of bands and artists to create limited edition t-shirts for their favorite NFL teams. Fall Out Boy, Underoath, All Time Low, and more are all featured. The full list of bands can be found below. There’s no way in hell I’m buying a OneRepublic shirt though.
For the first time ever, a select group of artists have joined forces with the NFL, each representing their favorite team and city through unique, official NFL gear. These limited edition shirts are perfect for NFL fans to show their pride in their city’s football and music. These will be available for a short time only and after that, they’ll never be sold again.
Most of us can relate to that that quiet moment right before a personal earthquake hits – where the world shatters at your very core and reality slowly cracks up to the surface like the protruding veins in your wrist. BLOOM explores the truth behind rising above failure and harnessing new life from it. The film stars the ever-amazing Scout Taylor-Compton (The Runaways, Halloween 2, Nashville) as a troubled young motorcyclist whose journey along a winding desert road is violently halted at a crossroads. Through sheer force of will she must choose a new, more positive life path, in order to rise from the ashes.
Andy Hurley from Fall Out Boy is also playing in a band called Sect. They’ve posted three songs up on Bandcamp and will be releasing their debut album on August 5th via Deathwish. Noisey has more details on the band:
Comprised of [Chris] Colohan on vocals, James Chang and Scott Crouse on guitar, Ian Edwards on bass, and drummer Andrew Hurley, Sect rips and roars, chugs and stomps, and generally just fucking shreds. Colohan’s caustic vocals are instantly recognizable, all sneer and snarl, and the unexpected shards of melody studding the otherwise cutthroat template of tracks like “Sinking” add a darker, moodier dimension to the short, sharp hardcore shocks of songs like “Scourge of Empire” and “Death Dealer.”
From there, you’ll step into an entirely new ride vehicle. The changes start with its sleek, modern new look. Once on board, you’ll discover a brand new, in-seat audio system that booms an original ride score created by Patrick Stump, front man for the internationally-renowned rock band Fall Out Boy.

I believe that each time we select an album out of the ether and push play, it says something not just to us, but about us. It becomes a reflection of that instant and transcends into both a personal and social entity simultaneously. It is this duality of frozen moments, between headphones and shared experiences, that helps define why we listen. We listen to be touched. We find comfort in intimate moments alone with songs, and we tie memories with the best of friends to the soundtracks of our nights. The songs that have stayed with me the longest are the ones that exist forever between these two realities: the ones that I suffer with and the ones that I share.

The only way to open this review is to be honest about my intentions. Everyone knows I’m a fan of this band. My website has followed their career closely over the last few years and I have a personal relationship with some of the band members. It’s not often you hear a reviewer admit their bias, but I am doing just that. I’m a fan of the band, always have been, and probably always will. The reason I’m doing this is because I’ve come to the conclusion that there will be very few reviews (public or personal) on this album that, if the reviewer is honest with themselves, are completely objective. It seems everyone has a preconceived notion on how they feel about this band. The truth is — it’s their third (official) full-length, by this time you know if you like what they do or not. If you’re already a hater: don’t try and fool anyone into thinking you really thought, “you just might like this one” – because you won’t.
