WATCH: Kalimur “Fighting For A Will” Acoustic

10898082_1529275750672944_8616484749690876705_nUsually rock and theatre only come together in musicals like Next To Normal or Spring Awakening, however, lead singer and pianist of Kalimur, Brett Steinberg is doing the opposite. He brings his theatre sensibility to alternative rock. This not only plays into his vocal technique, but also the way he interacts with a camera, as in Kalimur’s newest acoustic video, “Fighting For A Will.” Filmed and edited by, friend of the band, Victoria Stein, this video has a very amateur-like style, but, it works. The simplicity of the video exemplifies the way both Steinberg and Tyler Berkich (vocalist and bassist) perform. For Berkich, it’s as if no one is watching, he is completely in his element, singing along at different times to Steinberg’s lead vocals. However, Steinberg, being someone of the theatre, spends most of the video looking through the camera. It’s like he can see me as I watch the video and is singing to me. That’s a pretty amazing talent to have. The juxtaposition between these two performers is a beautiful and mesmerizing experience to witness.

The-Wonder-Years-CardinalsYesterday we told you that The Wonder Years had announced and revealed the cover art for their brand new album No Closer To Heaven, due out September 4th, via Hopeless Records.

Well last night midnight, the band released the video for the first single titled “Cardinals.” In the video, lead singer Dan “Soupy” Campbell is seen struggling to carry an unresponsive and dripping wet Mike Kennedy (the band’s drummer) down a street in a deserted suburban neighborhood. As the video progresses, you see the other members of the band in the background looking upon the situation. Towards the end, the camera angle changes, and you see Campbell is trying to get Kennedy to an ambulance. Unfortunately, the ambulance doesn’t stop and drives away without Kennedy. It’s some pretty intense and heartbreaking stuff, but isn’t that pretty much expected from The Wonder Years?

You can check out the video for yourself after the jump!

shine smallAfter a lengthy three-year hiatus, Florida rock group Shinedown is back with a new single called “Cut The Cord,” which debuted on Billboard.com today. You can see the band’s video for the single below the jump.

Shinedown has yet to top their emotionally charged 2010 single “Second Chance,” but with this new rock stomper, the band’s appeal to angsty teens gets kicked up a few notches – not to mention that the repeated chants of “freedom la la la” add to the cult-like aspect of the tune.

The single is a first glimpse of what’s to come from the band’s fifth album, which will be released later this year.

[UPDATED] Brand New Is Being Mysterious And Fans Are Going Crazy

7-7 Brand NewNine years later and it seems as though Brand New are finally sending out the lyric book found in their third full-length record, The Devil And God Are Raging Inside of Me. 

Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well, back in 2006, the group released their album along with a lyric booklet that was filled with random photos rather than the words to their songs. As listeners neared the end of the book, the band left this comment: “Please send $1 to *address* for a complete copy of the lyrics.” However, dollars were sent and booklets were never received. This whole mess has long since been forgotten — until now?

Recently, pictures have been popping up on the Internet of fans apparently getting their lyric booklets in the mail along with a dollar bill and an ad for a cassette of the band’s 2005 demos. Brand New has yet to confirm if this whole scheme is the real deal, but the Internet is freaking out. Some think this is a giant prank while others are crossing their fingers in hopes that the group will break their silence and release a record. No one’s really sure what’s going on right now, but some brand new Brand New would be pretty dang cool.

Check out some photos of the booklets below and let us know what you think of this whole mess in the comments!

Fans can purchase a CD or buy concert tickets here.

UPDATE #8: It’s been a few months and we still have no idea what Brand New is doing, but this time it seems that neither do they. In a recent interview with Rockzone, and his first in a while, Jesse Lacey mentioned that the band has yet to figure out whether they want to possibly (?) release this year and if so, what they will produce. Will the beloved, heart-wrenching quartet quit their teasing and embark on their infinite return with a full-length album or will they decide to spare their fans the anticipation and share their finished work on an EP? I don’t know. You don’t know. No one really knows, but people are trying to figure it out.

You can also take a look at a clip of Rockzone’s interview below along with all of the other madness that this band has inflicted upon devoted Brand New listeners everywhere.

On May 27th our phones rang, informing us that Logan Fincher (Millennial’s Lead Guitarist) was in the emergency room with a brain bleed. The waiting game began with nurses coming in and out, telling us the next steps. Logan showed no fear until they told him he would be in ICU to await surgery a long ten days later. He only asked one question: “Am I going to be ok?”

It is times like these where it is hard to think positively, it feels much easier to fear the worst. We chose not to give in. Our goal was to go into the hospital and dream with him. Talk about everything we want to do, everything we want to accomplish. Collectively, we wanted to keep reaching for something more, not knowing what the surgery would bring the following day. Huddled together in his hospital room, we prayed for a miracle.
