If you have not heard (which would be very surprising), All Time Low are touring with Blink-182, A Day To Remember, and DJ Spider this summer. The huge tour will see the group across U.S. arenas.
However, the guys can only partake in half of the tour. While it may be a bummer to fans missing out on their opportunity to see them, there is a silver lining: vocalist Alex Gaskarth explained the decision allows for time to write more music. Sounds good! Check out a tweet from Gaskarth with the details after the jump!
In addition to announcing signing to Hopeless Records, Emarosa have even more tricks up their sleeves. The group also released a new single and music video. The clip is for “Cloud 9,” off of their forthcoming album 131 due July 8.
The song is nice and catchy, with some interesting guitars to make it a fun listen. The music video toys with an concept, with vocalist Bradley Walden traveling through a neighborhood and having interesting encounters with those in it. Check it out after the jump!
San Diego, CA Pop Punk band Alive & Well, have announced their sophomore release, From Basements to Beaches which is due out June 3rd. The 4-song EP was engineered and mixed by Beau Burchell (Saosin). The band has explained the album as a “concept album about addressing a problem in your life and working hard to resolve it. The overall message is to have a positive and determined attitude about your life.” You can check out a song called “No Winter In The West” off of their upcoming EP below.
If you’re a fan of bands like Light Years, Driver Friendly, Such a Mess, or Head North, you’ll definitely want to hop on the Alive & Well bandwagon.

Hard 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.

The 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.
The hits just keep coming from Saosin. In anticipation of their new album, Along the Shadow, the group have dropped a new single/video. Billboard hosted the premiere of “Control and the Urge to Pray,” the third single from the forthcoming effort.
A stripped-down video of Saosin performing the track is just enough for a song that is equal parts infectious and instrumentally varied. Between the chorus and guitars that draw you in, it’s a great listen. Check it out after the jump!
For the first time in a couple of years, we can expect something new from Bayside. A fan shot video from the group’s set at the Launch Music Festival in Lancaster, PA confirmed the news.
When the band was about to tear into “Don’t Call Me Peanut,” vocalist Anthony Raneri announced a new album will drop in August. He also said the formal announcement for the effort, currently titled Vacancy, should come any day now. Check out the video after the jump!
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!
We are always excited for when our favorite couples in the music scene tie the knot.
This time, the happy couple are none other than Black Veil Brides frontman, Andy Biersack and his longtime girlfriend, the equally as talented singer, Juliet Simms.
The couple shared photos announcing their marriage in a few Instagram posts and over other social medias.
As fans and others rejoiced in the comments, we couldn’t be happier for these two.
With Andy working on his solo project Andy Black coming along this year, and Juliet releasing a new EP, All Or Nothing, after her time spent on The Voice, music has always been a huge part of the couple’s relationship. The couple met years ago at Warped Tour 2011 and have been dating exclusively for 5 years, making music together and are often on tour together being absolutely adorable.
These two are definitely a match made in music heaven!
Congratulations to Andy and Juliet!
Check out photos of the happy couple and Juliet’s music video for “End of the World” after the jump!
Albuquerque pop-punkers Right On, Kid! have released their new EP, On The Brighter Side of Things. They’re currently streaming the EP on their bandcamp page. With a sound reminiscent of Forever Came Calling, Hawthorne Heights, Handguns and Mest, this quintet makes sure to deliver. If you’ve been looking for raw, gritty, pop punk music, listen to Right On, Kid!
Philly punk group, JANK, released a music video for their song “Caitlyn.” The track is off the band’s 2015 debut album, Awkward Pop Songs. The album was released in November and became a success almost overnight.
The trio are known for their frantic, indie-rock, emo sound and cannabis. This video is exactly what one would expect from a band with a name like theirs. The music video features the band as they dive head-first into a smoke session, and an imaginary dog named Caitlyn that is something, yet nothing, simultaneously.
Long Island alternative band, Table Talk are releasing their debut, self-titled EP on June 3. In anticipation of the EP, the band released a new song titled “Evident” which will be featured on the release.
Despite forming just over a year ago, the band sound like they’ve been creating music together for years. The song alternates between raspy ad melodic vocals that flow perfectly with the song’s instrumentals. Drawing influences from
Drawing influences from Motion City Soundtrack and Jimmy Eat World, the Table Talk have their own charm to their music that draws the perfect balance between twangy vocals and intricate alternative melodies.
Check out the cover art and tracklist for the EP, below, as well as the new song, and let us know what you think of it in the comments section. To hear more from Table Talk, you can purchase a CD here or buy concert tickets here.
