MUSIC VIDEO: The Wonder Years – “Dismantling Summer”

Family is a key topic of The Greatest Generation, the latest album from Philadelphia, PA pop punk forerunners The Wonder Years. From the stark resolve of “Madelyn” to the anxiety that comes with sick and aging relatives on “Dismantling Summer,” frontman Dan “Soupy” Campbell’s lyrics hit close to home in very real sense. The family theme continues in the new music video for the latter track, which you can check out after the break. The clip finds Campbell’s family going through a typical day with a bearded mannequin as his stand-in while he anxiously tries to get a …

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…

WATCH: All Time Low Perform “A Love Like War” With Jenna McDougall (Tonight Alive)

All Time Low are currently overseas in the middle of a short UK leg of the A Love Like Tour, and to kick things off the right way, the band performed their most recent single and tour namesake “A Love Like War” with Tonight Alive frontwoman Jenna McDougall.

“A Love Like War” comes from the 2013 reissue of the band’s well-received 2012 full-length and return to form, Don’t Panic. The studio version features guest vocals from Pierce The Veil’s Vic Fuentes, who performed the song with the band during their time on A Day To Remember’s House Party arena …

WATCH: We Are The In Crowd Acoustic Performance

Poughkeepsie, New York’s We Are The In Crowd recently sat down with Glamour Kills to record an acoustic version of “The Best Thing (That Never Happened),” and you can check out a video of the performance after the break. The stripped-down rendition retains all of the intensity of the studio version, and it’s worth a listen for any fan of the group.

“The Best Thing (That Never Happened)” appears on We Are The In Crowd’s latest album, Weird Kids, released last month on Hopeless Records. Pick up a copy of the album right here and make sure you catch …

Taking Back Sunday Release New Song, “Stood A Chance”

Taking Back Sunday‘s sixth full-length album and second since reuniting with their classic lineup, titled Happiness Is, is due out March 18 on Hopeless Records, and earlier this morning, the Long Island band released the album’s second single, “Stood a Chance.” You can stream the track right here.

“Stood a Chance” is markedly more upbeat than the lead single, “Flicker Fade.” Shaun Cooper’s steady bass line anchors the verse, and the rousing chorus and punchy guitar lines make for a final product that sounds more like vintage Taking Back Sunday than anything on the group’s 2011 …
