Our latest installment of Live Sessions comes from the sold out stop of the Glamour Kills Tour at Royale in Boston, MA on March 12th. Watch full sets from Polar Bear Club, Transit and The Story So Far in the replies. Check back next week for The Wonder Years' set.
How's this for a way to kick off your weekend? To make your Friday go by a little faster, we've got a full stream of the Glamour Kills Tour Split featuring The Wonder Years, Polar Bear Club, Transit, The Story So Far, A Loss for Words and Into It. Over It. The concept of the split is that each band on the tour covered another band on the tour. So head to the replies to stream each of the six songs on the split, and read a little ditty from each of the bands talking about why they covered the songs they covered and why they're stoked for the GK Tour. Dates can be seen in the replies and the tour starts today.
Former Suicide Machines frontman Jay Navarro has formed a new band called Break Anchor with members of The Story So Far and Seized Up. The band will release their debut 7" EP, Blackhearts and Blackouts, on March 20 via Paper + Plastick. Stream one of the three tracks, "A Failure of Epic Proportions," here.

The Story So Far's van broke down today in Maryland. Consider helping them out by picking up some merch. In my humble opinion, their new album, Under Soil and Dirt, is one of the best pop punk releases this year.
The Story So Far will be taking video at their upcoming record release show on 7/18 at The Red House in Walnut Creek, CA that will be used for the official music video for "Quicksand" off of their upcoming record Under Soil And Dirt. All the show info can be found here.
