From Knoxville, Tennessee, Skytown Riot will be releasing their new EP, Soul Or System, tomorrow. Today, we are streaming the whole thing. Fans of more atmospheric material with haunting pianos and elements of Muse should enjoy "Sensational" or even their rendition of "House Of The Rising Sun," while "The Afterglow" could be played on soft rock radio. Even though it only has six tracks, this EP pulls from a lot of places, making it hard to really categorize. Be sure to give it a listen in the replies.

17 year old Cade Garett is someone to keep our eyes on in the future. Going under the moniker Outliers, the Dallas, TX native is looking to create a great brand of pop-rock that we have come to love from acts like Artist Vs. Poet, older Forever The Sickest Kids, and more. "Left To Let It Go" is a powerful single that you'll want to hit the "repeat" button on. You can listen to it in the replies and available for download.

Andy Elwell recently recorded a new three track EP, Grand, in Ireland - quite a long way from his home in Minneapolis. Today, we are excited to premiere the video for "Buried" off of the EP - it's in the replies. Fans of indie-folk singer songwriters like Damien Rice or Bright Eyes should enjoy this one.

Those Australian rapscallions in Closure In Moscow have returned, and not a moment too soon. It's been a long four years since First Temple and The Penance & The Patience, two fantastic releases that left significant marks on the scene. We've got another three months until Pink Lemonade hits stands, but we'll indoctrinate you into "The Church Of The Technochrist" today via their new music video. Check out the high-tech video in the replies, pick up their sophomore LP in February 2014, and plug in, plug in.

Today we're premiering the video for "Where The Hell Is Douglas" from Cincinatti, Ohio's BoyMeetsWorld. The pop-rock group are young but finding their stride in their songwriting and hopefully we'll see bigger and better things as they grow from their EP Do What's Best For You. You can view the video in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 11/12/13 - 08:16 AM
Last week we streamed a song from Scholar's upcoming debut full-length. Today, we're excited to premiere Choose Adventure in full.

Zac Djamoos on 11/11/13 - 12:34 PM
Today we are stoked to premiere Close Your Eyes' video for "Frame & Glass" which comes from the band's new album, Line In The Sand.

Very excited to premiere the video for "11:22" from thrash pop-punk outfit So Many Ways. The band's new EP Seer is coming out Nov. 19th and is available for pre-order.

Christian Wagner on 11/08/13 - 09:32 AM
Today we're premiering a new single from Anavae called "Bring Me Down." It comes from the band's upcoming LAB Records release Dimensions. If you're a fan of early VersaEmerge or Paramore, this is for you. Listen to the track in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 11/08/13 - 08:35 AM
Head to the replies to watch Absolute 100 alumni The SpacePimps perform an acoustic rendition of "Party Foul." Even stripped down, the song retains a great energy. The track comes from their latest effort, Eternal Boy. If you haven't heard the album yet, you can still stream it on their AP.net profile; it'll bring you back to the Drive-Thru Records era.
Alex DiVincenzo on 11/07/13 - 07:32 AM

Drew Beringer on 11/06/13 - 05:20 AM
Koji is one of the most genuine and passionate musicians you'll find in the scene. He's releasing a new EP, Matters, next week on a limited edition cassette tape from The Native Sound, as well as digitally. Listen to a song from the effort, "Matters (of The Heart and Mind)," in the replies. It brings to mind the acoustic approach of his earlier work.

If you're not already familiar with July, that's bound to change with the release of their TDR Records debut, What We Signed Up For, which comes out November 12. The Canadian pop punk group were recognized as part of the Absolute 100 in 2012, and they've continued to impress us since. Head to the replies to stream "To All the Kids," a banger that sounds like a cross between All Time Low and Four Year Strong.
Alex DiVincenzo on 11/04/13 - 08:18 AM
Today we are very excited to premiere Thief Club's "Follow You." The solo project of Nick of Hit The Lights, he channeled the style that brought Hit The Lights to prominence - aggressive pop-punk songs with honest lyrics and humongous hooks. This body of work proves why Hit The Lights wrote some of the most influential (and in my opinion underrated) releases in the genre. "Follow You" features site favorite Shane Henderson of Valencia lending his voice on the track. Listen to it in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 11/04/13 - 07:18 AM
We're excited to have the guys from Stick To Your Guns come back and chat with us at 5:15pm PST.

Today we're premiering Reach's video for "Pins & Needles." You can view it in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 10/31/13 - 08:10 AM
Undesirable People...you are a cool band. You have the twinkly emo parts that make the Topshelf crowd happy, you have the modern pop-punk/alternative parts a fan of No Sleep, Pure Noise, or Run For Cover would be into, and at times you have the soulful vocals that would please fans of Squid The Whale and the like. The band's upcoming release is coming out on South Division Records. Listen to "Alive In Your Grave" in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 10/31/13 - 07:39 AM
It's a Mark Rose-athon around here lately. Last week we had Mark on our podcast, and right before that we teamed up with Swell to premiere some Spitalfield acoustic videos. Well, today, we've again got some acoustic videos filmed by Swell for you to check out. If you head to the replies you'll find Mark performing "Georgiana" and "I Can See You (With My Eyes Closed).
Jason Tate on 10/30/13 - 11:29 AM
We're excited to bring you the EP stream from Winnipeg, Canada's Sights And Sounds. Signed to Pure Noise and Distort Records, the band will certainly be making new fans on their UK tour with Bring Me The Horizon and Pierce The Veil. Silver Door will satisfy the post-hardcore and punk palette and I am confident this band will be making an impact in 2014 and beyond. Listen to it in the replies.
Christian Wagner on 10/30/13 - 09:50 AM
We're streaming a new Such Gold song titled "Choosing Cages" in the replies. It continues on the melodic hardcore path the band carved out on their last effort, Misadventures. The track will appear on an upcoming split with Placeholder as part of Secret Audio Club's Wax Packs project. The 7" series comes packaged like baseball cards, and they're due out January 28th.
Alex DiVincenzo on 10/30/13 - 08:08 AM

Christian Wagner on 10/28/13 - 08:28 AM
Foxing are set to release The Albatross in just a few weeks on November 12 on Count Your Lucky Stars, continuing a streak of quality releases for the label. I'm excited to bring you the first taste of that record, the plaintive math-y indie tune "The Medic." The band has upped the ante for bands slapped with the loose application of "emo" these days, incorporating the noodly guitar tone into a larger atmosphere, instead of allowing it to dominate the conversation with the song. It's a tantalizing tease from a promising debut LP, and you can check it out in the replies.
Ryan Dennehy on 10/28/13 - 05:29 AM
Crusades is a Canadian punk band that will issue its second LP, and first for No Idea Records, on November 5. The album has a really long title. It's Perhaps You Deliver This Judgment with Greater Fear Than I Receive It and we've got an exclusive stream of "The Expulsion" in the replies. The record has a long name for a reason – according to the band, it's a concept album centered around the life of philosopher, heretic and antichristian martyr Giordano Bruno as an archetype for the modern atheist, freethinker, artist, poet and lover. Listen to the track in the replies and let us know at what exact timestamp your mind explodes.

If you enjoy the indie-folk stylings of Fleet Foxes and Anathallo, then you're going to want to check out The Hand in the Ocean. We are premiering the band's new song, "White Noise," in the replies - it's gentle yet powerful; full of emotional vocals. The Detroit trio will be releasing its new album, Tree/Forts, on November 5th via Save Your Generation Records but you buy it now digitally and pre-order it on vinyl at their Bandcamp.
Drew Beringer on 10/22/13 - 10:51 AM

Over the weekend, I interviewed former Misfits guitarist Doyle, who is currently on tour with Danzig. Although details are scarce, Doyle revealed that he recorded a new song with Danzig earlier this year. Check back for the full interview later this week.
Is there any chance of you recording anything with Danzig?

We actually did something. I think we did it in April of this year. Some song he wrote, we recorded it. I don't know the name of it, I have not heard the lyrics. He made me play something, and I was just like, "What? What is this?" Then we got half way through it, and he's like, "Okay, that's half the song. Do you want to do it again or do you want me to just fly it...

Tomorrow, Bear Girl's debut 3-song EP, Psychodrama, will release. Today, we are premiering the EP in full, which you can stream in the replies.

It's pretty dope and if you like what you hear, you can pre-order it via iTunes.
Drew Beringer on 10/21/13 - 10:59 AM
Tiny Moving Parts are rapidly drawing attention to themselves in the Midwest and Northeast, and we're bringing to you today a couple of remastered song streams from the Minnesota-based emo trio. New versions of "Old Maid" and "Coffee With Tom," which are being released in a 7" single via Skeletal Lightning Records on October 29, can be heard in the replies. Think of slightly mathy Midwestern emo with vocals that bring to mind Jordan Dreyer from La Dispute. You can also check out their tour dates in the replies, and preorder the 7" via the label's webstore.
Thomas Nassiff on 10/21/13 - 10:00 AM
You may have been wondering what's been going on with Socratic. Well, today we're premiering the band's new song, the painfully honest lullaby entitled "My Girl's First Baby." This is the group's first studio release since the band's self-titled release, which was released last year (available on iTunes). Post Drive-Thru Records fallout, Duane Okun, Lou Panico, Vincent Damico, Tom Stratton, and Chris Grzan continue to create, collaborate, and perform. The band will soon be releasing a statement regarding their future plans and projects. In the meantime, check out "My Girl's First Baby" in the replies and let us know what you think.
Drew Beringer on 10/21/13 - 09:55 AM
If you're a fan of early Taking Back Sunday, you may want to take a listen to Staten Island's Backslashes and Bad Ideas. Head to the replies to hear their new single, "No Matter What Happens, Don't Ask Who." The track comes from their new EP, There's No Place Like Home, which is due out on November 12 via Harbor Records.

On November 12th, two of the UK's most promising acts, Departures and Moose Blood, will release a split 7" via No Sleep Records. Today, we have one of the Moose Blood's contributions to the split, a song titled "Stay Here," which you can stream in the replies. The band's sound harkens back to the days of Deep Elm and 90's emo bands, so check it out. If you dig it, make sure you pre-order it (Euro fans go here).
Drew Beringer on 10/16/13 - 10:06 AM
The Republic of Wolves made some noise around these parts with the 2010 release of Varuna, a weighted, introspective record that came served with some Devil and God-esque leanings and captured much of our attention during the winter of that year. Now the band is following up that LP with their sophomore full-length, No Matter How Narrow, on Dec. 17, and they've said the self-produced record is more concise, more accessible and more light-hearted than its predecessor. If the album's leadoff single, "Spare Key" – which you can listen to exclusively in the replies – is any indication, that description is spot on. There are still remnants of The Dear Hunter here, but "Spare Key" is purely...
