Sponsor: My Fake Band — A Card Game for Music Fans

My Fake Band

My Fake Band is a new 4-8 player card game that is built for “music fans and shit talkers,” and they’ve just launched a Kickstarter.

Have you ever wondered how your favorite band came up with their name? Have you ever heard a song title that flat out made you laugh, or scratch your head in confusion? MYFAKEBAND is a party game that celebrates the Music Industrywhile shining a light on the absurdity that surrounds band names and song titles. I mean let’s be real, both “Hoobastank” and “Butthole Surfers” had hit singles that peaked on Billboard’s top 10 (no joke, look it up). 

MYFAKEBAND is a hilarious game that allows you to be the creator of some epically ridiculous bands, putting out equally cringeworthy hit singles.

Sponsor: My (Giant) Thanks to MxPx

MxPx - Worries

My thanks to MxPx for sponsoring the website these past few weeks. They recently released the new song “Worries,” and it’s out now on all digital platforms. There is also a video for the song and some limited merchandise in their webstore.

As many of you know, my first website was a MxPx/Blink–182 fan-page. When this whole pandemic started, MxPx reached out to me to see how I was doing and wanted to sponsor the website for multiple weeks knowing how crazy the online ad market and the economy were acting. It was an incredible gesture, and so I want to give my personal pitch: Check out “Worries” and if you’ve never dived into the band’s discography before, this weekend is a perfect time to do it. I fell in love with Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo as a kid, and if you’re looking for pop-punk perfection, they have an incredible catalog to experience. There’s never a wrong time to discover great bands, and this is a great band, full of great people.

Also, Mike Herrera will be doing weekly livestreams every Friday on the MxPx Facebook page throughout all of May. Make sure you check that out each week at 6pm PT.

Sponsor: My Thanks to Collider

Collider

My thanks to Collider for once again sponsoring the website this week. This time they’re promoting the brand new single “Learn to Let it Go” that was released last week to all streaming services. They also released a new music video for the song and if you like music with an atmospheric rock vibe not unlike Saosin or Anberlin, this should be right in your wheelhouse.

Check out the new song on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Google, or Amazon.

Sponsor: Northvale Release New Single Featuring AJ Perdomo of The Dangerous Summer

Northvale

Today’s a great day to get introduced to Northvale. Northvale are a new band from New Jersey in the vein of Sleep On it, Grayscale, and Mayday Parade, and today they’re debuting their brand new song “High Tide” featuring AJ Perdomo of The Dangerous Summer. The weather’s just starting to warm up and it’s getting just about perfect for this style of music, and while we may all still be stuck at home, that doesn’t mean we can’t turn up the volume up on some good ‘ol fashioned pop-punk.

Chief State

My thanks to Chief State for sponsoring the website this week. I always like when a band sponsors the website and then I read the comments and people are like, “Oh yeah, this rules,” or “I’ve been playing this EP nonstop.” It always makes me smile.

The band just released their new EP Tough Love via Mutant League Records. The album is up for stream on Apple Music, Spotify, and available for purchase on Amazon.

They also released a video for the lead single “Reprise.”
