In the exclusive interview below, we got the details on the making of the album, some fun studio stories, dream tour plans for the band and much more!
Emo is in the midst of a Renaissance. Blink-182 released their first new music in five years. My Chemical Romance has hinted at re-releasing “Welcome to the Black Parade,” despite their breakup in 2013. Young adults postulate that Suicide Squad will begin a new era of teens saying “rawr” and dying their new shades of neon, especially with the soundtrack tune from twenty one pilots, which some people consider to be the new “emo.”
But prior to this recent flurry of events, Emo Night Brooklyn was already ushering in the genre’s renewal.
“This is about going back to 2004 – when emo was the genre on the tip of everyone’s tongue – and partying your face off with people who remember it just as fondly as you do,” the event site proudly proclaims.
We all have favorite albums that we’ve grown up with that have an iconic soundtrack to years or even decades of our lives. One of those iconic albums for me was the 2001 album Bleed American from alternative rockers, Jimmy Eat World.
Today, the album turns a happy 15 years old, and with tracks that sparked a whole generation to sing “The Middle” at the top of their lungs and even “Praise Chorus” and “Sweetness” reaching ranks on the US Billboard charts, it was an album of mass potential. Being a more aggressive album than the previous releases of the band, Bleed American was a huge highlight in the emo/pop punk genre for the early 2000’s as it was highly praised for it’s edge, but also alt. rock smarts with lyrics.
So with the nostalgia plaguing this year of 2016, it’s always nice to pay a little homage to some great artists and some great albums. Happy Birthday Bleed American!
In addition to being one of the best movies out this summer, Ghostbusters rolled out one hell of a soundtrack. It includes the likes of Zayn, Fall Out Boy (ft. Missy Elliott) and 5 Seconds Of Summer.
5 Seconds Of Summer premiered a new music video for their single from the soundtrack, “Girls Talk Boys.” The clip is full of whimsical fun and perfectly compliments the song’s irresistibly catchy vibe. Check it out after the jump!
Moose Blood have a new album, Blush, dropping August 5. The group have been touring in support of the effort, but have found the time to give fans a taste of what to expect.

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.
