The Good Life Announce First New Album in 8 Years, Stream Lead Single

After eight long years of inactivity, Tim Kasher (also of Cursive) has decided to put some oil back in the old indie rock machine that is The Good Life. The band has just announced that they will be releasing a brand new record this summer via Saddle Creek.

Entitled Everybody’s Coming Down, the impending effort is slated for an August 14 release date, about eight years since the release of their last record, Help Wanted Nights. This will immediately be followed by a US tour alongside Big Harp set to run until early in September. In …

You Can Now Stream Four Year Strong’s Brand New Album In Full

Following their highly-anticipated, return-to-the-scene 2014 EP, Go Down In History, Four Year Strong make a very firm “we’re back and better than ever” statement in the form of their brand new full-length, self-titled record.

The Worcester, MA four-piece welcomed eleven killer tracks into their catalog, serving up some of their finest easycore material to date and transcending their music further and further to the top – proving more and more each day that musicians are always able to move past bad reception for an old release.

This record, which we just reviewed over the holiday weekend, is officially out …

Refused Stream Second ‘Freedom’ Single, “Françafrique”

On June 30, Refused will unleash Freedom, their first new album in nearly two decades. In anticipation, the Swedish four-piece have begun streaming a poignant new track titled “Françafrique.”

Though considerably “lighter” than the previously released “Elektra,” the hardcore titans’ latest offering is no less affecting, drawing its power from the vivid imagery of frontman Dennis Lyxzén. Some exceptional guitar work further adds to the fun, and over the course of five minutes it becomes increasingly clear that, even after 17 years, Refused are still willing to take risks that most of their peers wouldn’t dream of. …

The Weeknd Drops “The Hills”

The Weeknd may still be enjoying the success of his single “Earned It,” but he’s back today with a new single and video fans are sure to enjoy.

“The Hills” arrives online just two days after a number of unexpected leaks from The Weeknd hit the net (including the incredible “I Can’t Feel My Face“). Whether this release is a response to those leaks or an attempt to better control the conversation remains unclear, but the quality of this material is undeniable. There is very little to the song that is outside the typical sound of …

The New Sorority Noise Album Will Probably Change Our Lives

Anyone who is connected to the alternative and indie rock worlds with even the faintest of interest no doubt failed to make it out of 2014 without hearing The Hotelier‘s phenomenal album, Home Like NoPlace Is There. And that’s perfectly fine. It’s great, in fact. That album is incredible and it deserves to be heard by as many people with ears to hear that exist today, but as far as buzzworthy records go it’s high time a new king be crowned and Sorority Noise are currently making a damn strong argument that their upcoming release be next in …

We Came As Romans Stream “The World I Used To Know”

Michigan natives We Came As Romans continue their transformation from breakdown-loving bad boys to radio rock titans this afternoon with the premiere of “The World I Used To Know.”

It has been a minute since fans last heard from We Came As Romans, and in that time the band has spent a lot of time developing their skills as both songwriters and musicians. The band reportedly wrote forty songs for their upcoming self-titled album, but in the end decided that only ten of those tracks were good enough to make the actual record. “The World I Used To Know” was …

A$AP Rocky Releases New Album ‘At.Long.Last.A$AP’ A Week Ahead Of Street Date

Rejoice, for Lord Flacko Jodye has bestowed upon us his latest gift. You can now stream the highly anticipated follow-up to Long.Live.A$AP below, via Spotify.

As a passing fan of A$AP Rocky who leans more in favor of his mixtape output, I can say after a few preliminary listens that the new record, At.Long.Last.A$AP, is the A$AP Mob star’s most impressive work to date. “Holy Ghost” is one hell of an opening track, “Canal St.” and “Excuse Me” are certified bangers, and “L$D” is just as trippy now as it was when we first heard it last week. The …

Rick Ross & Big Sean Remix Future’s “Commas”

Following a lackluster 2014, Future has spent the first half of 2015 reaffirming his positing amongst the hip-hop elite. His latest offering, “Commas,” boasts an ego-driven flow that has spent the past several weeks winning over rap fans coast to coast. The song hasn’t cracked the top of the charts as of yet, but a new remix making the rounds online this morning leads us to believe that will soon change.

Late last night, May 25, a new remix of “Commas” found its way online. The tracks strips all of Future’s verses from the original effort and replaces them with …

The Weeknd Shares “I Can’t Feel My Face”

With “Earned It” continuing to dominate the charts, The Weeknd has surprised fans once again with a surprise single release.

“I Can’t Feel My Face” appeared online late Monday night, May 25. The song boasts dance-ready production inspired by the heights of funk and soul. It’s the kind of endless groove that could play all night long, and Abel’s voice only serves to take the entire affair to the next level. The drug use alluded to in the title is not as present in the music as one might expect, but it’s implied nonetheless. You can stream the song below.…

Rob Thomas Returns With New Single “Trust Me”

Matchbox 20 frontman Rob Thomas has stepped back into the pop spotlight with the premiere of a new song titled “Trust Me.” I should warn you: It’s catchy.

Co-written with One Republic frontman Ryan Tedder, “Trust Me” is a fast-paced pop song that further evolves Thomas’ already dynamic and tenured sound. Thomas may have made his name in alternative rock, but his solo career has always boasted a heavy pop influence that is once again present on this track. That said, it’s not so in line with current radio hits as to feel immediately disposable in any way, shape, or …

New Music: Juicy J Feat. Drake & Ty Dolla $ign – “Tryna F*ck”

Without warning or promotion, a new Juicy J track has begun to circulate online that many are already calling the next big hit of summer 2015.

“Tryna Fuck” is not the kind of title you can sell to radio, but the studio quality song that leaked from Juicy J over the weekend is actually the edited version of a song with that very name, only this time the hook has been changed to “Tryna Love.” Make no mistake though, it’s clear from each line in every verse, not to mention the celebratory hook, that the headliners behind this track have …
