Everyone loves a good guest spot - there's just something so fun about a surprise vocalist sneaking their way onto track you wouldn't expect. When I The Mighty needed a female set of pipes for Satori, they called in The Material's Colleen D'Agostino to fill out "Four Letter Words," a stand out track on a damn good record. We reunited the band with their guest at the House Of Blues, grabbing an acoustic rendition of the song - check it out in the replies.

The band is yet to determine whether the EP will be a self-release or label release.

We are very excited to finally be able to share with everyone that Sam Robinson is the vocalist of Close Your Eyes. I’m already blown away by the new material that we have been working on - his voice is a very strong addition to the CYE family. He is an incredible vocalist and a great guy that shares our vision and purpose. We cannot wait for everyone to hear the new songs and to be back on tour again. Come hang out and say what's up to Sam!

Read my review of the Mansfield, MA stop of the Mayhem Festival here. The tour features Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Mastodon, Machine Head, Children of Bodom, Amon Amarth and more. You can also check out my interview with Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 here.
When the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival rolled through Mansfield, MA on July 16th, it was about 90 degrees out, humid, with no breeze and barely a cloud in the sky. A bright, sunny day doesn't exactly scream "metal" (although I suppose you could equate the heat to the fires of Hell). No matter how you put it, it was oppressively hot - but the climate didn't stop the bands nor the fans from giving their all.

Nothing's better than watching a new band move full steam ahead, especially one teeming with potential. Featuring ex-Daytrader guitarist Matt Mascarenas, Heartless Breakers are those guys - anxious to work their asses off while showcasing skills both classic and unique for pop-punk. Their Prescriptions EP certainly hits that energy and angst of a Taking Back Sunday or The Wonder Years, but channels the musicianship of Bayside or older Transit. We could keep spitballing comparisons, or you could hit the replies and listen to their EP in full. Grab Prescriptions from the band's merch store, iTunes, and most other online retailers/streaming services.

Comedian Kyle Kinane and some of his friends (among which is musical guest Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms) put together a self-proclaimed 'love letter to Chicago' comedy show a few months ago, and the general public is finally able to purchase it starting today. Entitled 'Dancing Around the S*** Fire,' it highlights Kinane's "return to a sold out crowd to confess his hilariously true stories and hijinks of living in the ‘Windy City’." You can check out the purchase optionshere.
