Shane Told (Silverstein) is back with another sports blog in which he offers another perspective on the incident involving Tigers Jaw. Check it out in the replies.
But we are. Everyone is the same. Whether it's a boy or girl singing on stage or someone walking down the street or in a classroom, no one should have to deal with being touched or sexually assaulted. For some reason musicians on stage are viewed as some kind of approachable sex symbols. And I'm sure a lot of people have seen a girl get on stage and hug a lead singer and not thought twice about whether or not they wanted to be hugged. But I certainly wouldn't walk up to a girl on the street I thought was cool or attractive...

People in Cars used to be the solo project of Etay Pisano. Now a trio comprised of Pisano, Mike Toohey (bass) and Jesse Hangen (drums), the band is getting ready to release a self-titled seven inch this June. Today we're excited to premiere the A-Side to the single, entitled "Let Go." It's a spacious alt-rock track perhaps in the vein of some Anberlin music. Listen to it in the replies and pre-order here.
Zac Djamoos on 05/22/14 - 01:01 PM
Sad and French consists of Jose Prieto, Edwin Santacruz and Greg Taylor. The band's press release tells me that the trio "writes songs about girls and booze," which is right up my alley. Today, we're premiering "Second Floor," a raucous and twangy number that'll get you tapping your feet. The song is off the band's upcoming self-titled debut, which will be available on May 27th via Black Numbers (pre-order now). Check out the song in the replies.
Drew Beringer on 05/22/14 - 10:11 AM

Check it out in the replies and then scoop it up by pre-ordering it.
Drew Beringer on 05/21/14 - 08:51 AM
Hit the replies to view our premiere of Tied To Machines' video for their new single, "Tampa Bay Mutiny". "Tampa Bay Mutiny" is the raging follow-up single to the Belfast-based hardcore punk band's critically-acclaimed debut album, Carla. The track is a sonic call to arms from a band very much at a crossroads in their journey. If you're looking for two minutes of rage and anger to kick off this fine Wednesday, the band are at your service. The track is available to download on their Bandcamp.
Kelly Doherty on 05/21/14 - 06:08 AM
Two of our favorite up and coming bands, Tiny Moving Parts and Old Gray released a split 7" today and you can stream it in the replies. It's one of the better splits you'll hear in 2014 and if you dig it, make sure you pick up the split immediately.
Drew Beringer on 05/20/14 - 12:09 PM

Ryan Gardner on 05/15/14 - 08:15 AM
Today we are bringing you an exclusive premiere of Echosmith's brand new video for "Come With Me." Check the replies for the video. Lead vocalist, Sydney Sierota, had this to say about the video's concept:
We loved the miniature photography concept for this web video. We thought it was such a unique way to represent the songs message of when you have someone special to love it makes life's journey an adventure
Jason Tate on 05/14/14 - 04:45 PM

We've got a brand new Shellshock Lullaby track for you today, and we couldn't be more excited. The track, entitled "The Look in Your Eyes," sounds like a cross between old Midtown and Somos. Stream it in the replies.
Zac Djamoos on 05/08/14 - 02:18 PM
Bands that are fun loving and kind of chill are always talked about in conjunction with the seasons, which is bogus. Because really, the only thing less interesting than talking about the weather is writing about it, so we won't do that. Instead what we'll do is introduce you to the laid-back hazy-pop cool dudes in No Nets. Their new album, Affable & Ready For Small Talk drops on May 20th, but right here this very moment we have the organ-tinged, beautiful people indie grunge of "Bonnie Tyler." (It really is quite amazing how good I am at describing music in a way that is both simple and makes sense!) Take a listen in the replies and make sure to pick up the band's album when it's...
Blake Solomon on 05/08/14 - 08:15 AM
Hit the replies to check out a cat-themed lyric video for The Nearly Deads' "I Said," taken from their debut record Invisible Tonight, out June 24.

"This song is about how sometimes you have to break your own heart to grow from a situation, like a bad relationship or something. It's very honest and clear, that was my goal with this track."
Drew Beringer on 05/01/14 - 10:05 AM
Last summer, Light Years' released their debut album, I Won’t Hold This Against You.

If you like what you hear - or see - grab the album for $5 digitally from Paper + Plastick Records.
