The Swellers 2013

This Acoustic Version Of The Swellers’ “Best I Ever Had” Will Make Pop Punk Loving Hearts Burst With Joy

The perfect song for Warped Tour has just become the perfect song for your next campfire with friends.

It’s incredibly hard to put into words what happens to someone when a song as good as The Swellers’ summertime classic “Best I Ever Had” comes barreling through a stereo system. In a few short notes you, the listener, are transported from wherever you are to the first time you thought you knew what love was, then overwhelmed with the fresh pain of realizing you could not have been more wrong. You don’t cry, however, because those years when you felt …

Fucked Up Year of the Dragon

Check Out Fucked Up’s 18-Minute Single “Year Of The Dragon,” Along With Its B-Sides

The biggest news for Fucked Up fans was the recent announcement of Glass Boys, the band’s summer follow-up to the momentous David Comes To Life. Matador isn’t unleashing that beast until June 3, though. The Year of the Dragon dawns much sooner.

The wily Canadians’ annual-ish Zodiac releases continue to trickle out, with Year of the Dragon set to be the sixth installment of the series to be released. Dragon is actually the eighth in the series – years of Hare and Rabbit have yet to be officially released – but few complaints as to that fact are …


Taking Back Sunday Stream B-Side “How I Met Your Mother”

Taking Back Sunday released their new record Happiness Is… this week, and we really like it. The band has just premiered “How I Met Your Mother,” a B-side from the album that you can hear after the jump. The song appears as the B-side to the Flicker, Fade 7″ record.

The track is definitely different from the majority of the new record, somewhat reminiscent of “El Paso” and the more aggressive moments from the band’s 2011 self-titled record. What do you think of the song? Let us know in the comments and make sure you check out Happiness Is…

Required Listening: Eminem – “Don’t Front”

We have been discussing the new album from Eminem for a number of weeks, and now that the album is in stores we assumed the flow of new material to stream had come to an end. Fortunately, we were wrong.

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is currently available in regular and deluxe editions. The latter of those two contains a handful of additional songs that have been making the rounds online, but the track we’re featuring today can’t be found on either pressing of MMLP2. “Don’t Front” drops all the gimmicks Slim Shady has embraced over the last decade …

Rise Against 2013

Rise Against Stream “Sight Unseen”

Most of the time, there is a small minority of music fans who actually care for rarities releases, but then again, most of the time, we’re not talking about Rise Against‘s upcoming Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers 2000 – 2013 album. Revolver Magazine just got the exclusive premiere of the latest track to be revealed off the album and it sounds absolutely incredible.

Long Forgotten Songs… won’t be hitting shelves until September 10, but pre-order packages are currently available on the band’s website. Follow the jump to listen to “Sight Unseen.”…

Property Of Zack got ahold of a potential unreleased b-side track by Vinnie and Jesse of Brand New.

Norma Jean Stream “Family Bike Wreck” B-Side

Norma Jean have released a leftover from their forthcoming album to keep fans chomping at the bit for new material. If you needed a reason to go absolutely apeshit crazy, this is it.

“Family Bike Wreck” joins a long line of hilariously fantastic song titles from the almighty Norma Jean.

Ellie Goulding B-Side “You, My Everything” Surfaces Online

Not that you need another reason to think the week of Independence Day is awesome, but Ellie Goulding has given fans one just in case.

Letting the internet have a look into what her hit album Halcyon could have been, Ellie Goulding has released an album leftover entitled, “You, My Everything.”

Produced by Jim Elliot, the drum-and-bass leftover is filled with ambient verses and a wobble-till-you-dance chorus that feels meant for larger exposure. The song originally premiered on Skins (UK, of course), but has no official release plans at this time. You can stream the track below.

Halcyon was admittedly …

Michigan’s I See Stars have returned to the UTG headlines with the release of a new song and the promise of more to come in the (very) near future.

“Can We Start Again” is the first song to surface from I See Stars since the 2012 release of Digital Renegade. The song, which started as a b-side, features guest vocals from Frankie Palmeri of Emmure and Mattie Montgomery, as well as lyrics from the legendary hardcore group Bane.
