Hayley Williams has written a little post to clarify what's going on with her hair dye line. I think AP.net should help her come up with the color names.
Just wanna make clear that, yesssss, I am in fact in the early stages of creating a hair dye lineÖ However, the rumor that I am teaming up with Manic Panic to do it is not true. Their dyes are rad and the company as a whole is a massive source of inspiration for me. Donít want Manic Panic folks thinking that Iím using their name to get ahead.. Awkward! This is gonna be my thing! 100% my vision and Iím pretty psyched about it. Still a long way to go but Iím working hard and cannot wait to really be at a point where I can share more....
Adding noodly math rock and strange time signatures to pop-punk has always been Icarus The Owl's mission objective - it's a bizarre marriage that the band's made work for some time. For their self-titled album, the boys teamed with produce Kris Crummett (A Lot Like Birds, Night Verses, Issues) to amp up their catchy, off-kilter fun. Hit the replies for the new song "Black Fish" - Icarus The Owl is due February 7, and can be pre-ordered on their BandCamp.
The musicians of Tides Of Man have always been championed. The band's brand of post-hardcore featured a unique vocalist, but was anchored in strong instrumentals far surpassing their peers. That musical backbone is thrust into the forefront with Young & Courageous, the band's first instrumental release. It'd be silly to bemoan what once was when this new direction works so well - it's certainly a steep transition with some learning curve, but a sound Tides pulls off. Today we have "Hold Still", a booming track filled with dynamics and builds - hear it for yourself in the replies, and pre-orderYoung & Courageous before its February 4 release.
