TyDi Releases New Song Featuring Chris Carrabba

Australian breakthrough electronic artist, tyDi, has just put out a new song, entitled “The Closer I Get,” off of his upcoming album, Redefine, set to be released on September 30. This track features Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional and Twin Forks.

In a recent interview on The Gunz Show, tyDi mentions that his love for music is very much influenced by the bands he used to listen to growing up, such as Blink-182 and the like. This is made evident in how melodic and alternative-fused his other music is, even with its electronic nature. Having worked with artists such …

VINYL REVIEW: Blink-182 – Blink-182 (Hot Topic Exclusive)

Artist: Blink-182
Album: Blink-182
Label: Geffen Records
Original release date: November 18, 2003

I think it’s safe to say that Blink-182 was my first favorite band. Not only their music, but their personality as a group spoke to me as a pre-teen and teenager with an unequivocal desire to be more outspoken and extroverted. My very first (and second) concerts saw Blink headlining and co-headlining and both of those experiences had a lasting effect on the future me. Looking back on it all now, I can’t help but feel that if it weren’t for Blink-182, I likely never would have …

Travis Barker Is Working On A Memoir

Travis Barker of blink-182 has announced that he is writing a memoir. Barker says that he’s been working on the book for months, and that it will be released in Fall 2014.

LIVE REVIEW: Blink-182 ‘Untitled’ 10-Year Anniversary Show (11/7/13)

For some reason Blink-182 has always been a band everyone likes. I have vivid memories of hearing “Going Away To College” for the first time when I was 15, and my older brother then giving me a copy of Buddha for my birthday. Their music became the standard for car trips and singing along to “Josie” set the bar for how to have fun driving down route 146. My mom even loved to sing the high harmonies on songs like “First Date” so despite the vulgar language they were acceptable to play in the car.

There has just always been …
