Touring 101: How To Promote Your Show

darcy_malone_and_the_tangle_CD_release_tipitinas_jm_032616_032Hard work, hard work, hard work…….did I say hard work?  Hard work is what it takes to put fans through the door at your show.  But first things first.  Make sure your songs are  as tight as they can be. Rehearse the set so it becomes part of muscle memory…no thought involved so one can just sink their entire heart and soul into the emotion of the song being played.  Remember: it’s a performance that folks are paying for, and there are a million live music choices out there.  So it’s important you give them a concert that is worth their money. Once the songs and the set are up to par, the mundane and not so sexy work of promoting the show begins.

Blink-182 Announce New Album & Tour, Debut New Track

Blink 182

Blink-182 are back in the studio after nearly five years. California will be their seventh album and the first without founding member Tom DeLonge. (Last year, drummer Travis Barker and bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus issued a statement saying DeLonge decided to “indefinitely” leave the band.)

In a tell-all interview with Rolling Stone‘s Patrick Doyle, DeLonge revealed he was completely blindsided by their decision to remove him from the trio. “If they would have come to me and said, ‘Hey, you’re really busy right now. We really want to do something, maybe we should get someone to fill in,’ or something, I would have probably been fine with it.” But they didn’t.

This isn’t their first gap in communication. “The band has always been dysfunctional. The only time we all really communicated daily was in Blink’s first, sort of, trimester,” DeLonge said. After that, there were years without speaking and messages passing through managers.

While DeLonge is trying to focus on family life and numerous creative projects that extend beyond music, Barker and Hoppus are looking forward to Blink’s future, releasing a new album with collaborator Matt Skiba, the guitarist for Alkaline Trio. Perhaps not by coincidence, “Bored To Death,” the first single off California, is a catchy and nostalgic song about moving forward.

Blink is taking their new lineup on the road this summer, kicking off on July 22 in San Diego, CA. Joining them are A Day To RememberAll Time LowAll American Rejects, and DJ Spider.

California will be released on the 182nd day of the year, July 1. Listen to “Bored To Death” and see the full list of tour dates after the jump. To purchase CDs or buy concert tickets, click here.

ALBUM REVIEW: The Woodsman’s Babe – ‘Babeland’

the woodsman's babe babelandThe Woodsman’s Babe is an acoustic indie solo project straight out of Los Angeles that blends life’s crazy uncertainty with complex tales of passionate love, lost love, and a longing for love. Babeland is the third release following their 2015 self-titled full-length in April of 2015, and their self-titled EP in April of 2014. The band like to keep things consistent, and this release was no exception.

In all, Babeland is just layers upon layers of sad stories, and solo artist Joe Lengson’s ability to place listeners in his shoes is something that not all musicians can achieve. The entire album is just heartbreak disguised as art, and it seems to work.

Spencer Chamberlain Hints At Future Underoath Touring

Underoath NEWUntil recently, the future of metalcore giants Underoath was unclear. The guys were on good terms and had a reunion tour, but what would come after? For now, it seems that the reunion is going to be more permanent than expected.

Vocalist Spencer Chamberlain celebrated the end of their enormous reunion tour and stated he “can’t wait for the next UO tour.” More Underoath shows would certainly be welcome, and you can check out Chamberlain on tour with his group Sleepwave in the meantime.

BAAO-5

Being As An Ocean stopped at Chain Reaction for the last date of their headlining tour that SOLD OUT! The second that Joel stepped on stage to get his mic set up, fans roared with excitement & started stage diving immediately. Who says you need music to have a good time at a show? (It helps sometimes, haha)

They opened up with Little Richie (How can we know Love when we were never shown it?) Joel gave the crowd a speech about how we are all humans & every single one of us deserve love. He went on to talk about how It doesn’t matter what religious beliefs you have or what sex you are, you’re a human & you deserve to be treated as one. I couldn’t agree more with that statement.

The fog really added to the atmosphere of the show, the lights were hidden by a cloud of smoke as were the members of the band, everyone once in a while you could catch a sight of Tyler (Lead Guitarist) & Ralph (Bass) on the right side of the stage as well as Michael (Clean Vocals, Rhythm guitar) on the right. Jesse (Drums) was hidden all night long, but his contribution to the show was well appreciated!

STREAM: Beartooth, “Always Dead”

Beartooth NEW 2016The guys of Beartooth are not slowing down. Just after releasing their newest single, “Aggressive,” the guys dropped another new track from their upcoming album. Beartooth revealed “Always Dead” as their newest release, and it is a doozy.

Filled with heaviness and catchy vocals, it truly rips. If these two songs are what we can expect from Aggressive, out June 3, there is a solid album in our midst. Check it out after the jump!
