The Maine Announce Spring Headlining Tour Featuring Real Friends, Knuckle Puck, And The Technicolors

Every time I see The Maine in the news, I have to remind myself that this is not the same band that released Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop and Black and White back in the neon days of yore.

The Tempe, AZ indie pop group have announced plans to head out on a monster Spring headlining tour with support from pop-punk giants Real Friends and recent Rise Records signees Knuckle Puck. The Technicolors will be opening each night of the tour, which starts with an April 4 hometown show for The Maine in Tempe and runs through mid-May.

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 …
