You can read our interview with Unifierhere. The band have just released their debut full length album, Colorado and we discussed to process behind the album and their recent name change.
They are definitely from a personal point of view for me. I try to be poetic and use fairly general themes, without being vague so that the listener can make their own interpretation and decide what the lyrics mean to them to a certain extent. A lot of the general ideas and themes on the album came from a time of reflection I had when I was in Colorado quite a few years ago, which is why we decided to name the album that. I'd say some of the main topics I come back to are: people being deceitful or...

Tiny Engines is quickly becoming one of my favorite indie labels around, so I'm excited that we get to announce their latest signing - Philadelphia's Little Big League. This female-fronted quartet is a bit shoegazy, a bit indie-pop, but totally worth checking out. And check them out you can, as we're also exclusively premiering the band's single, "My Very Own You," in the replies (or over at the band's AP.net profile). Drawing comparisons to Sleater-Kinney and Now, Now, the band will release its debut, These Are Good People, this summer. You can pre-order the band's 7" here.

To my friends, family, and all the amazing Motionless In White fans, this is very hard to say, and I’m sure it will hit me harder soon, but I will no longer be in the band. This decision did not just all of sudden happen. After doing this since I was 17, the nonstop touring, and everything else that comes with the life of a musician, has finally caught up with me. It has affected me mentally and physically and it’s to a point where the best thing for the rest of the band and myself would be for me to call it quits. Please know that the band and I are on good terms, best of friends and I love them all very much. No matter...

Three undeniable talents from the world of heavy music have joined forces. Howard Jones: the former Killswitch Engage and Blood Has Been Shed frontman, who garnered two gold records and a grammy nomination during his decade-long tenure with the Massachusetts band.

I’ve been writing and recording music in one form or another since I was 12 years old. It had always been something I “just did” and I can’t honestly say I ever gave it a fair chance to reach its full potential. But recently, with an extra bit of confidence, a series of liberating events, and an unwavering determination, I decided now is the time and finally made a full-length record of my own. And around it, formed a new band called Mosey. Here is the first song from that record.
My record label was really unsure, but I said ‘Look. Either I go make this record or I go to a mental health clinic. So it’s really not your choice: This is what I’m going to do, for my own personal mental health. This is what I have to do, because music is my therapy.’
