We're very excited to bring you the exclusive debut of Dance Gavin Dance's animated video for "Death of the Robot with Human Hair."

Somewhere In Time are taking the old saying 'a penny for your thoughts' to heart for their debut 3 song EP entitled Pay To Play. Email your paypal address to paytoplayep@gmail.com and the band will send you a penny on March 18th along with a link to download the release. Today, we're premiering the track "Diploma Candidate" and you can listen to it in the replies.

In this day and age, there is an abundance of music to choose from, in literally any genre, for music fans. In my experience, this has been a blessing and a curse at the same time -- finding new artists to truly connect to is an indescribable feeling, but one that has ceased to be special as it used to be by the sheer fact that there is so much wonderful music to explore. However, once in a while, an artist comes by who makes a lasting impression because their music simply blows you away. And that's exactly what happened when I first heard East Forest's music: I felt the same overwhelming feeling that few similar artists, such as Balmorhea and The Album Leaf, made me feel years ago. And...

You're going to have to set the clock back a few years for this one. At one point, Canada's Fighting For Ithaca was part of a large core of bands doing the Four Year Strong-style songwriting. Flash forward several years later and the band is still going strong, albeit now they're one of the few remaining doing the style. Listen to the band's new track "Better Off" in the replies.

Today, we're premiering the new video for "Unfamiliar" from Kansas City pop-punk group Get Busy Living. The band's new EP, All Good Memories Fade, is available on iTunes. The song takes its name from a book written by lead singer/guitarist Chase Peterson’s fiancé, best-selling author Komal Kant. Her new book, Unfamiliar, which is co-authored with Erica Cope, is also out this week. In the meantime, check out the new video in the replies.

Today we're happy to be streaming the new EP from Something You Whisper called From The Other Side. The Canadian metalcore act has paved its way through the scene and is hoping 2014 will be the group's breakout year as its contemporary influences like We Came As Romans and The Word Alive continue to grow. Listen to the EP in the replies.

We're proud to exclusively reveal that Intheclouds Records has signed Ghost House (Athletics, ex-The Vinyls, The Years Gone By [for all you NJ scene historians]). Pre-orders for their new record Sorry About Everything are now available. Check out the music video for "Patterns" in the replies.

Comeback Kid won't be releasing its new album, Die Knowing, until Monday, but we got a special treat for you as we're premiering the album today and will be streaming it throughout the weekend. The highly anticipated fifth album from the veteran Canadian hardcore group features CBK at its heaviest yet, as Die Knowing is as punishing as hardcore goes. Check out the entire LP in the replies and don't forget to pre-order it.
Drew Beringer on 02/28/14 - 08:57 AM
Today we have another Quiet Country Audio session, this week with NY hardcore/rock act Kills And Thrills. Fans of Every Time I Die and Letlive will love this session. Check out the videos in the replies and you can grab the audio on Bandcamp.

Youth Conspiracy Records and Veggie Co. Records have partnered up to release Sweet Empathy Leaving Me, a new 7" from Massasschusetts' Foreign Tongues, on April 8th. Today, we are streaming the A-side of the upcoming release - a fantastic track titled "Wishing Well." The EP was produced by Jay Maas of Defeater and mastered by Greg Dunn of Moving Mountains. Check out the new song in the replies. After you do that, make sure you pre-order it.

With Have Mercy and Daisyhead joining forces on a new split EP, listeners are granted the opportunity to get in on the ground floor with two bands that have a very bright future. Have Mercy's phenomenal debut, 2013's The Earth Pushed Back, is an addictive, emotive punch to the chest and producer Paul Leavitt supplies the missing X-factor into the songs on this split, while Daisyhead's emo-grunge isn't without flashes of Balance and Composure and Daylight. Both bands are relative newcomers and both should use this release - out tomorrow - as a building block for huge 2014s. Stream the four-song split in the replies, and preorder it over here.

Today we're bringing you the sweet indie rock sound of Dreamtigers new album, Wishing Well. Dreamtigers is the songwriting collaboration of Jake Woodruff (Defeater) and Andrew Gary and is rounded out by Mike Moschetto and Joe Longobardi (also of Defeater). Wishing Well is a dynamic, folk-tinged album featuring contributions from members of Caspian, Balmorhea, and Polar Bear Club. Wishing Well can be streamed in the replies and will be available tomorrow, February 25th via Broken Circles.

California has produced its fair share of punk bands over the years and The Mighty Fine is looking like it's going to be a part of that group of artists very soon. The band is releasing Brothers and Smugglers on March 4th via Creator-Destructor Records. It was recorded and produced by Kyle Black (Strung Out, Set Your Goals, Comeback Kid) and fans of 90s melodic punk bands like Hot Water Music, Alkaline Trio, and The Lawrence Arms will definitely love this. We're happy to premiere the group's video for "Daphne" which you can view in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 02/21/14 - 07:03 AM
Today, we're premiering one of my favorite 2014 releases thus far - the full-length debut album from Creative Adult. The album's titled Psychic Mess and it's available next Tuesday via Run For Cover Records. The 12-track album is a dark, fuzzy noisemaker infused with psychedelic haze in the vein of Fugazi and the like. Check out Psychic Mess in the replies and pre-order it via Run For Cover.

So you're a fan of skittish, sunny punk rock, huh? In that case, you should probably check out Plymouth, UK trio Woahnows. Below is a first look at the band's video for new single "Watching Accidents", which takes cues from the likes of Japandroids and fellow Brit-punks Gnarwolves. The track is up for free download for a limited time on Bandcamp and the official single is set for release on the 10th of March via Big Scary Monsters. Soak it in.

Today we're streaming Knuckle Puck's "Fences" from the band's upcoming split with Neck Deep out on Bad Timing Records / Hopeless Records on February 25th. Online copies are sold out, but 500 copies of the split will be available on tour, which starts February 28th. Listen to the song in the replies and you can grab the songs on Bandcamp.

You may have heard Massachusetts post-hardcore band Lions Lions take on Bruno Mars, Jay-Z and more in the past. Their latest cover is The Neighbourhood's "Sweater Weather." Head to the replies to check out the video.

We're really excited to premiere a brand new track from up and coming metalcore band The Prestige, who will be releasing their debut album Ecotone (prod. Antoine Lussier) on March 18th. You can pre-order the album here, and you can check out "World At My Feet" in the replies.
Jake Denning on 02/18/14 - 12:44 PM
NJ's Abilities is gearing up for the release of its new EP Encouraging Calm and label debut on Meletov Records. For fans of Moving Mountains and Athletics, this 4 track release will certainly satisfy your craving for that ambient instrumental sound. Listen to "Maple" in the replies.

Chiodos have always had an affinity for the bizarre and what goes bump in the night (after all, the band is named for the trio of brothers who directed the cult film Killer Klowns from Outer Space), so it couldn't come as a surprise that the band's new video for "Why The Munsters Matter" is full of old black-and-white horror movie clips. The song is classic Chiodos - as it contains a Bone Palace Ballet feel while maintaining the band's rejuvenated energy and chaos (as seen on last summer's Warped Tour). Today, we are proud to premiere the band's new video along with the reveal of "The Devil Dance Tour 2014." The band's upcoming album, DEVIL, hits retailers on April 1st, but if you...

Energy pay homage to the legendary Misfits with their new covers EP, aptly titled A Tribute to the Misfits. The effort features the Massachusetts rock group's take on such classics as "Astro Zombies," "Die, Die My Darling," "Where Eagles Dare" and more. Stream the album in the replies. It will be self-released by the band tomorrow on bandcamp - for free!
Alex DiVincenzo on 02/17/14 - 08:12 AM
Today we're bringing you a brand new song from Distances and an interview with the group's guitarist Florian Maier. Listen to "Heavier Than You Know" in the replies and let us know what you think. This Winnipeg based punk band formed in 2012 and headed to Vancouver last summer to work at Rain City Recorders with ex-Daggermouth guitarist Stu McKillop. Now the group is digitally releasing an EP called Boulders through Gold Stock Records tomorrow and its debut full-length Peaks/Valleys is due out sometime this summer. If you're into Polar Bear Club this is definitely a band you might want to check out.

Idlehands is going to be one of those bands you're going to want to know about right now. The San Diego rock act is starting to make a splash on the national scene and it'll be a damn shame if you catch the group on their upcoming tour with Being As An Ocean, A Lot Like Birds, and My Iron Lung and not know the band's material. Listen to the track "Mellow Christ" in the replies which comes from the split with Ghost Parade. The track features GP's vocalist Justin Bonifacio and the split is available for pre-order.
Christian Wagner on 02/17/14 - 07:32 AM
Today we are premiering another new track from Rust Belt Lights called "Parkside" which comes from their upcoming LP Religion & My Ex out on February 24th on Adeline Records (US) and Disconnect Disconnect Records (UK). Physical preorders are available and you can preorder digitally on Bandcamp. Listen to "Parkside" in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 02/13/14 - 02:59 PM
In case you haven't noticed, Tiny Engines has been killing it thus far in 2014. And you can add another hit to the list as Florida's Direct Effect will be unleashing its brand of abrasive punk rock in the form of its new album, Sunburn, this March 11th. We're offering up a taste of that LP today by premiering "Thoughts of Honey" and if you like loud, noisy punk in the vein of Pissed Jeans, then check this jam out in the replies. You can pre-order it on vinyl or buy it now digitally for $5 at Bandcamp.
Drew Beringer on 02/13/14 - 09:35 AM
We've featured Ghost Parade before but if you haven't checked them out you should do that now. Today we're premiering the San Francisco three piece's track "Drugs With Strangers, On Lovers" as part of their split Idlehands. The track also features Johnny O'Hagan Of Idlehands. The split will be available on Feb. 25th but is available for pre-order. You can listen to the track from the Absolute 100 alumni in the replies.
