Marianas Trench Releases Four-Song EP

marianas_trench.jpg.size.xxlarge.promoWe’ve all been patiently awaiting the arrival of Marianas Trench‘s new album Astoria, and it looks like we will have to wait just a little while longer. The band announced today that their fourth studio album will see a release much later this year, with a lead-off single being debuted in early fall.

But to thank fans and tie them over until then, the Canadian pop-rockers have released a new digital EP titled Something Old / Something New. The EP contains four songs – two of which are previously unreleased tracks that were recorded before the release of their very first album Fix Me. So we’re talking some old school MT material here.

The other two songs included on the EP are the two that have previously been released within the past year – “Pop 101 (barely feat. Anami Vice)” and “Here’s To The Zeros.” All four of these songs will not be included on Astoria. So just when we thought we knew what we were in for with the new album, they throw us this curve ball.

You can purchase these new songs, or any of their old CDs, here.

Marianas Trench will be heading out on The Legend Continues Tour starting at the end of June. Check out a complete list of dates after the jump. If they are coming to a city near you, you can buy concert tickets here.

WATCH: Asking Alexandria Release First Single With Denis Shaforostov, “I Won’t Give In”

10408687_10153060416975818_8840820043040339034_nSometimes it is hard to tell how much a change of members really changes a band. Was this guitar run something no one else can do? Was that vocal technique really that crucial? For Asking Alexandria, the best way to explain the change in sound is, it’s just different. Original vocalist, Danny Worsnop had a gritty and fairly classic rock vibe to his voice. This put Asking Alexandria into the hard rock side of metal and gave them a fair number of fans because they displayed a very unique side to metal. However, Denis Shaforostov (formerly from Down & Dirty and Make Me Famous) does not have this quality to his voice rather, he’s a screamer who sings in a pop punk style. Like many fans are saying, “I Won’t Give In” is a great song, but it doesn’t feel like Asking Alexandria and the amount of bands they are now competing with, sound-wise, just increased 10 fold. With Shaforostov the band is beginning a new chapter, they will need to work a lot harder, but I believe it can be as good, or even better than the last one. Welcome to the AAfamily Shaforostov!

Check out the song below as well as all the welcome messages from the band to Shaforostov below. Let us know what you think in the comment section.

STREAM: Refused “Françafrique”

Dustin Rabin Photography, Refused, Dustin RabinRefused are back in action! Just last month, the Swedish punk rockers announced their roaring comeback with the single, “Elektra.” Today, the band has released their politically heavy and surprisingly poppy second single, “Françafrique.” With a simple and clean cut sound, the four-piece seems to ditch their dynamic hardcore influences for a a more original, straight up rock and roll-esque sensation.
