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.

Belmont Release Announce New Album; Release New Video

Belmont have announced that their upcoming, self-titled, full-length album will be out on August 17th through Mutant League Records. A video for the first single, “Hollowed Out,” was just released and exclusive pre-order bundles are now available.

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.

Babygotbacktalk Release New EP

Babygotbacktalk are a violin-powered, coed, multiracial D-I-Why?-because-we-gotta punk quartet from New York City. On April 14th the band released their new EP, Up in Open Arms, on Bandcamp. If you’re into bands like Chumped, The Matches, or similar artists, this is going to be right in your wheelhouse.

Check out “I Guess This is Glowing Up” and then download the EP.

Side Project Release New EP

Side Project are a pop-rock band from Leicester, UK and they will be releasing their debut EP, The Shapes and the Colours, this Friday, April 13th. You can stream “Dance the Night Away” to get a good idea what the band sounds like. Think anthematic rock music with big choruses and a summer vibe.

Their EP is available early on their webstore and if you’re looking for something new to spin as the weather starts to warm up a little bit, this should do nicely.

My Thanks to Pylons

My thanks to Pylons for sponsoring the website this week. The band just released their sophomore album, Macro Eye Close Up, which rips its name right from the center of the first song on the record, “Page Torn Down the Middle.” At under twenty minutes, the album manages to hone in on consistent stability, and an expansive sound, panning out and pulling in from an array of influences. Teetering somewhere on the brink of punk, alternative and rock ‘n’ roll, the dual vocal band utilizes their female/male fronted dynamic to give their listeners something both refreshing and reminiscent. Macro Eye Close Up earns itself upon the initial listen, and each and every one that will inevitably follow.

You can check them out on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, and iTunes.
