What do you get when you have Tanner and Nick of You Blew It!, Steven of Dikembe, and Jason of Crucial Dudes? You get Donor, and if you like any of their other bands than this is right up your alley. Jeremy Records and Paperweight Records will be putting out their debut 7" Ache Through My Bones in late November. Listen to "Everything Is Illegal" in the replies.

When we streamed a Sudden Suspension track two weeks ago, the response was overwhelming. Over 50 replies for an unsigned, unknown, young pop-punk band meant we had to make sure to give you guys a full EP stream of the band's new EP Second Place. For fans of Real Friends, The Wonder Years, and more, these new-comers to the genre have a bright future ahead of them. Stream the full EP in the replies and you can pre-order on their Bandcamp.

Next month, Heartsounds will release its latest album, Internal Eyes, via Creator-Destructor. Today, we're bringing you an exclusive premiere of the title track - an uptempo and in-your-face anthem from the San Francisco punk quartet. Check it out in the replies. The record is available to pre-order and will be in stores October 15th.

Ever since we announced Haden Brightwell as The Company We Keep's new vocalist, we've been excited to hear results. Today we have "Control" from their upcoming full-length, Sound/No Sound (more on that later). The sound's exactly as I'd hoped - Haden's stellar vocals, molded through melodies from Motion City Soundtrack's Justin Pierre, flanked by Brian Southall's guitar/programming wizardry a la The Receiving End Of Sirens/Isles & Glaciers, and percussion via Misery Signals' Branden Morgan. Hit the replies for their music video, tour dates, and Brian's explanation of #SoundNoSound; pre-order Sound/No Sound here - the album releases October 29 via Easy Killer Records.

In the replies, you can find our exclusive premiere of The Used's new video for "Quixotica." The song is from the band's recent EP release, The Ocean Of The Sky. The band will be going out a few headline tour dates this October.

The sixth chapter in Vanna's ambitious 10-part video series, The Few and the Far Between: The Movie, is set to one of my favorite tracks on the record, "Please Stay." The video matches the song's intensity, as our protagonists take mushrooms and trip in the woods. The members of Vanna appear in this one, looking like they're part of Cobra Kai. Check it out in the replies.

It seems like a lot of exciting new bands are emerging from the Nashville scene lately, huh? Add another to the list, as Courtesy Drop plans to unleash its style of melodic post-hardcore in the form of its Animal Style Records debut, Songs to Drive to; Cry, and Make Love To. Today, we have a sneak peek from that LP - you can exclusively stream "A Toast To The Valiant Phil Coulson" in the replies. The band's new album will be available on October 15th and is available to pre-order.
Drew Beringer on 09/12/13 - 10:49 AM
I think this is going to be a big hit on the site. Today, we're introducing Arliss Nancy, the latest band to join the Black Numbers family. The Fort Collins, CO, quintet will be releasing its new album, Wild American Runners, in mid-October and today we're bringing you a great slice of said album by premiering "Coals." If you're a fan of Lucero, The Gaslight Anthem, and The Hold Steady, then this band and song will be right in your sweet spot. Check out "Coals" in the replies. If you dig it, make sure you pre-order it as well.
Drew Beringer on 09/12/13 - 10:33 AM
I'm delighted that we're exclusively streaming the debut EP from Illinois pop-punkers, Game Changer. Three Years is an exhilarating, fun, youthful EP that brings to mind the likes of The Story So Far, Handguns and early All Time Low. The EP is officially available to buy from the band's Bandcamp tomorrow, but until then, head to replies to hear it. Thank me later.
Kelly Doherty on 09/12/13 - 04:31 AM
It's tough to put my finger on who to compare Microwave to. I hear some influence of Jimmy Eat World, Balance and Composure, and even hints of modern pop-punk bands like Real Friends. Whatever the case may be, the band has a new EP When The Fever Breaks coming out next week and we're premiering the track "Labor Day" for you. Listen in the replies and leave your thoughts.

A couple months ago, we premiered a track from Deer Widow's upcoming self-titled EP. Flash forward to today and we're premiering the entire thing. The Flint, MI, quartet features members from Kid Brother Collective, Dead by Sunday, Empty Orchestra, and more. If you dig what emo originally sounded like back in the 90s, then you may love this. The band will be releasing its debut EP on Save Your Generation Records and you can pre-order the EP on 10" vinyl. In the meantime, stream the entire EP in the replies.

Emma Ate the Lion will digitally release their full-length debut, Songs Two Count Too, tomorrow. The concept album follows the life and death of a man shaped by the world around him. Jump to the replies to stream it. If you miss the progressive indie rock styling of Forgive Durden, you're going to want to give this a listen.
Alex DiVincenzo on 09/09/13 - 09:42 AM
SURPRISE! Bet you didn't see this one coming. Today we've got a brand new song from The Morning Of called "Holden." It's the classic TMO that we have all come to know and love, and the song is inspired by the book "The Catcher in the Rye." Take a listen in the replies and catch them in NYC at The Webster Hall on September 29.

This release includes the band's original 1985 version of the classic song "Letís Drink Some Beer."

Today we're premiering Down With Webster's new video for "Party For Your Life." The infectious track is coupled with a montage of movie clips from some of the most iconic films over the last few decades and it will be sure give you a wave of nostalgia all the while keeping your foot tapping and singing along.

Fresh off its recent appearance in this year's Absolute 100, I'm excited to premiere a brand new track from post-hardcore/post-rock band Caterpillars. Without repeating what I wrote about the band in the Absolute 100, the Dallas, TX, quartet has released one of the most exciting albums of 2013 (The Other Side will be available on September 24th) and continues what Thursday left behind. Check out the blistering "Rebirth" in the replies. A pre-order of the digital version of The Other Side is available.

A few months ago, Shane Told of Silverstein reached out to me about starting up a monthly sports column on the site. I thought why not? We have a very strong sports forum and a lot of our users are very knowledgable about various sports. Now that his band just wrapped up its stint on this past summer's Warped Tour, Shane sent me his inaugural AP.net sports column, which you can read in the replies. It's not often that sports and this scene crossover, but in this month's column Shane discusses how musicians and athletes cheat to get ahead.

We're back with the fourth chapter in Vanna's ambitious 10-part series, The Few and the Far Between: The Movie. This week's video features a scuffle set to the chugging breakdown of "Casket Rhythm." Jump to the replies to see the story unfold. In case you're behind, watch the first, second and third segments.

We gave you the first taste of Lonely Kings' new material a couple of months ago, and now we're streaming the entire record. American Heartache releases this Tuesday, September 3 on Epochal Artists Records. It features a guest appearance by Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix on the track "Promises." Listen to the album on the band's AP.net profile or in the replies.

We've got a really great exclusive for you guys today. You might not recognize the name Dave Hill right now, but with all the pots he has his hands in, you will soon. Bearing a multi-hyphenate title that would rival James Franco's, Hill is a published author (of a collection of essays entitled Tasteful Nudes), stand-up comedian, podcaster, host of a monthly live variety show, and also frontman for the power-pop group Valley Lodge. The group is gearing up to release their third album, Use Your Weapons, next Tuesday, but we're happy to be streaming the entire record a few days early. Filled to the brim with massive hooks and infectious vocals, this record is right up the alley of anybody...

Drive-Thru Records had an unbelievable roster in their prime, but one band that went criminally overlooked was Day at the Fair. The New Jersey pop punk group's 2005 effort, The Rocking Chair Years, is making its vinyl debut on September 17th via Broken Heart Records. In addition to the original album and several bonus tracks, there is also a limited edition lathe cut available only in a bundle. It features "Broken," which is one of the first songs the band ever recorded but was never released. Head to the replies or the band's AP.net profile to listen to the track and be brought back to the golden age of pop punk.
