Taking Back Sunday Is Still Your Favorite Band Ever

The band that served as the soundtrack to your first true romance and the heartache that inevitably followed have a new single that is proof they’re only getting better with age.

“Better Homes And Gardens” was an immediate standout on Taking Back Sunday‘s Happiness Is…, so it’s great to see it have a chance for additional exposure with the release of a fantastic new music video. The clip mirrors the emotional turmoil filling the spaces between vocalist Adam Lazzara‘s croons of a once great romance falling apart while standing on the verge of an eternity together with …

Anthony Raneri (Bayside) Announces Solo Record, Drops New Single

Anthony Raneri, best known as the frontman of emotional punk rock outfit Bayside, has announced a brand new solo record, Sorry State of Mind, which is due out June 30 via Hopeless Records.

Along with the announcement of the new record, Raneri dropped an acoustic pop-infused new single, “Gone,” via Billboard earlier today. The song — which is far from what fans heard on Bayside’s latest full-length, Cult, comes in the form of a lyric video, which can be viewed after the jump.

Sorry State of Mind comes after Raneri’s delightful 2012 release, New Cathedrals. …

Neck Deep Promo 2013

Neck Deep Announce New Album ‘Life’s Not Out To Get You’

One of pop-punk’s biggest international acts, UK’s Neck Deep, have announced a new record called Life’s Not Out To Get You. Album pre-orders drop May 12 along with a new song called “Can’t Kick Up The Roots” and a music video. Artwork can be found below.

I can’t help but make a stray observation about the release date. The album releases August 14 via Hopeless Records. Given the May 12 pre-orders, that’s a three month album roll-out. A roll-out that long probably indicates that Hopeless Records anticipates this to be a huge release, possibly with a big single …

REVIEW: All Time Low – ‘Future Hearts’

Artist: All Time Low
Album: Future Hearts
Genre: Pop Rock
Label: Hopeless Records

It’s 3:51 a.m. At this point, I’ve listened to All Time Low’s Future Hearts at least 7 times continuously, and I still can’t figure out what I want to say about it. I could hop on the bandwagon and gush about how the band’s sixth studio effort is all for the fans. I just have one question: Isn’t that the point of all albums? While I understand where other critics are coming from when they point this out, it seems like a cop out. There’s so …

The Definitive Ranking Of New Found Glory’s 20 Best Songs

There are more listicles than ever these days, and for what it is worth we have tried very hard to not succumb to the temptation of flooding our front page with every meaningless list we could conceive. We pride ourselves on crafting content we would actually want to read ourselves, and though it hasn’t always been the most successful way to run a site, it has served us well so far. Recently, we decided to begin doing more lists, but only if we found some topics worth discussing at length. After a few ideas, we ultimately settled on ranking the …

Have Mercy Announce New Spring Headlining Tour With Weatherbox, You Me And Everyone We Know, Head North

Things don’t always go as planned in the music industry. Today, Have Mercy showed everyone how to make the best of a bad situation.

Several weeks ago, Front Porch Step announced a spring tour featuring support from Have Mercy, Alcoa, and Head North, with Hotel Books and Brigades set to appear on select dates. After allegations of sexual abuse against Front Porch Step mastermind Jake McElfresh surfaced online in late December, Have Mercy and Head North separately announced that they would not be touring with Front Porch Step, insisting that they would make it up to fans.

Today, Have Mercy …
