Following the news of their upcoming album, Touché Amoré, released a kickin’ new single titled “Displacement.” The song is off forthcoming album, Stage Four, which is scheduled to release on September 16 through Epitaph Records.
The song explores what happens when someone you care about believes in a higher being, but you can’t get yourself to believe in the same God.
“You died at 69 with a body full of cancer,” Jeremy Bolm sings. “I asked your god, ‘How could you?’ But never heard an answer.”
Stream the song below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments section. To hear more from the band, you can purchase a CD, here.
Touché Amoré is currently on tour with Ceremony, Gouge Away, Hum, Basement, and Balance & Composure, each on different dates. You can check out a list of tour dates, below, and buy concert tickets here.
New and upcoming artist Scarlett Saunders is making a name for herself in the music industry. With a new EP coming soon entitled Blue Again, we are definitely feeling the summery vibes with her newest single “Circus”. Saunders takes her audience on a journey, allowing her music to not only entertain but takes a more literary approach to her work, as the music paves the way for exploration. Saunders prides herself on exploring the nature of human relationships through various mediums, and through music and lyricism is just a new way of expressing those intimate relationships and connections.
“Circus'”insights just that thought, with imagery play coming to the listeners mind, but also the soothing voice of Saunders bluesy vocals comparable to that of Lana Del Rey, really makes this track stand out as a special one on the EP indeed. Paired with some interesting synth, “Circus”can be seen being added to any indie collection as well as some pop airplay in the future.
Check out and listen to “Circus” via Soundcloud below the jump or purchase the EP Blue Again here.
Our Last Night have plenty of awesome original material, but have been dabbling in a lot of new covers lately. As part of their “Decades of Covers” series, the group released a new ’90s inspired cover.

Post-hardcore supergroup, Sianvar, released a new song titled “Psychosis Succumbing.” The song is the second single off the band’s impending debut full-length release, Stay Lost.
The song’s aggressively smooth sound creates a demeanor that is not always explored in post-hardcore bands.
With beautiful instrumentation that comes across as groovy meandering, the song shows a careful, and catchy, mixture of prog-rock, experimental rock, and post-hardcore influences.
Sianvar is made of up Will Swan of Dance Gavin Dance, Donovan Melero of Hail The Sun, Sergio Medina of Stolas, and Joe Arrington and Michael Franzino of A Lot Like Birds.
Stay Lost is following up Sianvar’s self titled 2014 EP. The full-length is scheduled to release on August 5th through Blue Swan Records. Pre-orders for the release are available now. To get your own copy, you can purchase a CD here.

We’ve only been playing under this guise for about a year and a half now but in that time we’ve done two tours, four weekend runs, recorded and released a split, and recently released our first EP Table Talk. We decided early on that we were going to make an honest attempt and try to progress this band in the direction we want it to go.
Writing played a huge role in advancing our passions as we really hadn’t played together for a very long time before deciding to write the record. Ryan had joined our band only three months before we released our first split which we recorded while on our first tour so there wasn’t a lot of time for us at the beginning to really get a chance to work with one another intimately.
Ghostbusters is sure to be a big hit this summer, with the stacked soundtrack to match. The reboot’s soundtrack features artists like Zayn, Fall Out Boy (ft. Missy Elliott), and 5 Seconds of Summer.
5SOS premiered their cut featured on the soundtrack, “Girls Talk Boys.” It is a change of pace for the normally rambunctious pop-rockers, featuring some seriously skillful vocals and a dance-y, diso-inspired beat. Check it out after the jump!
Last month, The Color Morale released a new song titled “Walls.” And now, the band are back with a music video for the single. The track is off the band’s upcoming album, Desolate Divine, which will be released on August 19 through Fearless Records.

Check out the video, below, and let us know what you think in the comments section.

Every year, guitar string manufacturer, Ernie Ball, holds a huge Battle of the Bands competition for Vans Warped Tour. Artists submit music and the public votes. This year, 41 bands for 41 dates were chosen to perform on the Journey’s main stage.
Yesterday was Day 17 and the day Boston-based post-hardscore band, Actor|Observer, got to live their dream. It was their third time playing Vans Warped Tour, their second time winning the competition, but their first playing the main stage.
“It was pretty unreal,” frontman, Greg Marquis said. “We had a huge crowd and so many familiar faces, but also new faces getting really into our music, and all day had people telling us they loved our set. It felt great.”
“After 11 years of attending Warped Tour, it was an absolute dream come true to not only be a part of the show, but to actually play the same main stage as New Found Glory and Sum 41. Those two were huge influences to me picking up a guitar,” guitarist Kyle Kowalsky said.
None of that, though, could top Chad Gilbert (New Found Glory), one of the Ernie Ball judges, watching from side stage.
“We were all truly amazed by the experience and are endlessly grateful to Ernie Ball, Chad, Kevin Lyman, and everyone we encountered during the day for making it such a gratifying experience,” Kowalsky added.
The Ernie Ball contest isn’t over. The Grand Prize is $40,000 in cash and prizes and will be awarded to one artist after Warped ends. In the meantime, Actor|Observer are planning shows to fill out their 2016 calendar and writing their next album. Their last record, The Longer Now (Heads Up Records), will be pressed to vinyl soon and is available for pre-order.

2006 was a much simpler time, where pop punk was king and we all loved the fad of skinny jeans, eyeliner and going absolutely everywhere with straightened bangs and our favorite music playing. The year of 2006 also marked the release of one of the most iconic albums from Cute Is What We Aim For, Same Old Blood Rush With A New Touch.
With tracks like “Curse Of Curves”, “Newport Living” and “There’s A Class For This” there was something special about this debut album that the fans eagerly latched onto.
Frontman Shaant Hacikyan spoke fondly about the album when the band announced the anniversary tour stating, “10 yearrrrrrs! This is so surreal. I’m not entirely sure what to say about a record that turned our lives into a movie for a few years other than to thank you from the bottom of my left side for making it possible and allowing us to live a dream one more time this fall.”
Now with a decade passing since the album’s release, the band have announced a huge headlining tour for the 10 year anniversary beginning in September for the USA, but will be hitting Australia for tour in just a few months with shows beginning in August.

Being a band of two married couples, our lives are filled with so much more than just making music together. Throughout the making of our latest record, Crooked Orchards, we would unwind after a long day of tracking by sitting on the couch with a glass (or three) of wine and binge-watching TV shows together. It was these moments that helped make the recording process so comfortable.
Life moves so fast and in so many different directions nowadays that taking an hour or so to just sit and relax with a glass of wine is a very cathartic experience. (We highly recommend it!) Therefore, we decided to put together a playlist to help you do just that. The four of us each chose four songs that we feel are perfect to drink wine to. So grab a glass, sit back, take a deep breath and hit play. Without further ado…
Check out the full list after the jump or stream the entire playlist here.
Crown The Empire released a new song titled “Weight Of The World.” The single is off the band’s upcoming album, Retrograde, which is scheduled to release on July 22 through Rise Records.
The song is about living under the limelight and learning to adjust to what people demand of you. It’s about wanting, and trying, to belong. “No you can bite your tongue, ‘Cause I won’t bite mine,” sings vocalist David Escamilla over fast, punchy verses.
Stream the song, below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments section.To hear more from Crown The Empire, you can purchase a CD here.
