Upon A Burning Body Release “Turn Down For What” Video Featuring Ice-T

Upon A Burning Body and Ice-T have worked with the fine folks at Spencer’s to deliver a video for their cover of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What.”

Released in the hours before Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6 hits digital retailers, the official video for what can best be described as the metal version of “Turn Down For What” is chock full of strippers, booze, and attitude. Ice-T, Cocoa, and the members of Upon A Burning Body took over a Detroit area night club to shoot the clip, and though it’s fairly generic the visuals are cut together nicely. You …

REVIEW: Various Artists – ‘Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6′

Artist: Various
Album: Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6
Genre: Covers/Compilation
Label: Fearless Records

Two years have passed since Fearless Records shared Punk Goes Pop Vol. 5, and in that time the world of top 40 music has undergone quite a transformation. There is less music created by actual instruments at radio today than ever before, replaced at a startling rate by EDM headliners and star-studded collaborative efforts that revolve around mindless hooks backed by thumping bass. Transforming these tracks into well-executed covers performed by artists using guitars is no easy task, but Fearless found thirteen artists up to the …

REVIEW: The Color Morale – ‘Hold On Pain Ends’

Artist: The Color Morale
Album: Hold On Pain Ends
Genre: Post-Hardcore
Label: Fearless Records

The Color Morale has been astonishingly prolific since signing to Rise Records back in 2009 as Hold On Pain Ends marks their fourth full-length, but first since making the jump from Rise to Fearless Records.

Typically, the concern with bands that churn out records this quickly is that they’re simply throwing together another 10-12 tracks that follow a familiar formula, cashing in while they can — because, let’s face it, you never know how long your buzz is going to last these days. But in the …

Guitarist JB Brubaker had the following to say about the signing:

“We are all extremely excited to be a part of the Fearless family. Fearless has done an amazing job building a community within the label as well as a bunch of our friends bands and careers. We can’t wait to see what they can do

REVIEW: Real Friends – ‘Maybe This Place Is The Same And We’re Just Changing’

Artist: Real Friends
Album: Maybe This Place Is The Same And We’re Just Changing
Genre: Pop-Punk
Label: Fearless Records

“Easy on the eyes, heavy on the heart.”

Real Friends‘ lead singer, Dan Lambton, perfectly describes their new record with their own lyrics. Maybe This Place Is The Same And We’re Just Changing channels so much of their previous material, so much so that I wouldn’t have been surprised if they threw in a line or two about sleepy eyes and boney knees. This did not happen, thankfully, although I must admit it almost felt fragmentary.

Going into this record …

Real Friends Release “I Don’t Love You Anymore” Music Video

Chicago pop punk outfit Real Friends are continuing the promotional run towards their debut full-length this morning with the release of the official video for “I Don’t Love You Anymore.”

For those keeping score at home, this is the third single Real Friends have released during the summer of 2014. Add to this the group’s ongoing participation in the Vans Warped Tour and you have a recipe for complete alternative scene takeover that has not been this poised for breakthrough success since The Wonder Years delivered The Upsides a few years back. The new video features a story of love …
