Stream letlive.’s “Dreamer’s Disaster” Featuring Chris Conley

Earlier this year, post-hardcore outfit letlive. announced that they would be putting out Renditions, a compilation album of songs they’ve previously released in the past. Renditions will be special because this time around, all the tracks will feature a guest vocalist. They have already put out two “renditions” with “27 Club,” which featured Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die, and “The Dope Beat,” which featured Soupy Campbell of The Wonder Years.

Today, the band brings us “Dreamers Disease,” off of The Blackest Beautiful from 2013. The Renditions version features Saves The Day‘s very own Chris …

dear youth

REVIEW: The Ghost Inside – ‘Dear Youth’

Artist: The Ghost Inside
Album: Dear Youth
Label: Epitaph Records
Genre: Metalcore

Over the course of their steady climb up the ranks of the music scene, The Ghost Inside have developed a dedicated fanbase through the combination of crushing metalcore, memorable choruses, and brutally honest lyricism (e.g. “Engine 45″). Thus, there wasn’t necessarily a pressing obligation for the group to evolve as long as they stuck to their proven formula, but it became clear settling for safety wouldn’t be the case when it was revealed that their newest effort, Dear Youth, would be a loose concept album. As noted …

Stream A Reimagined Version Of Letlive.’s “The Dope Beat”

Last year Letlive. released their hugely successful album The Blackest Beautiful. It’s certainly my personal favorite of theirs, and I’m definitely not the only one. Starting in January, the band released their first Renditions track from the album. According to the group, these are reimagined versions of songs from The Blackest Beautiful featuring a variety of guest vocalists. The first song was a reimagined version of “27 Club,” and it included guest vocals by Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die. Now they have revealed the second track in the series, which is “The Dope Beat.” For this …

stillglow

REVIEW: Stillglow – ‘Wrath’

Artist: Stillglow
Album: Wrath
Genre: Post-Hardcore

Eccentricity is an art in of itself. The process of combining intertwining elements into a cohesive piece of work is a difficult thing, but certainly something post-hardcore act Stillglow strive for. With their new EP Wrath, the band aggressively shoves influence after influence into the listener’s mouth, sometimes making it difficult to swallow, while other times creating a perfect meal.…

Letlive. Release First ‘Renditions’ Track Featuring Keith Buckley

We hear remixes, covers, and collaborations every day, but post-hardcore act letlive. are aiming for a little of all three with their Renditions project. The Los Angeles band enlisted a number of guest vocalists from around the scene to write and perform their own parts over sections of songs from letlive.’s 2013 sophomore album, The Blackest Beautiful.

Here’s what frontman Jason Butler had to say about the project:

We presented them one song off of our latest album and asked them what they would do with a certain section if I (Jason Aalon) never sang in said section. We

Letlive. Frontman May Be Guest Vocalist On Upcoming Emarosa Album

I don’t follow a whole lot of people on Twitter, mostly just people that I work with or bands that I’m interested in. There are some musicians that I love seeing regular updates from, and one of those people is Bradley Walden. Mr Walden, as you may know, is the new frontman of Emarosa. The band has been in the studio working on a new album, and fans have been anxiously waiting to hear what they have been working on.

Walden has been updating fans on the progress of the album via Twitter over the last couple of months, …

Jacob Tender’s ‘Best Of 2013′ In Music

‘Tis the season to make the most difficult choices I have to make all year. Seriously, my life is easy enough to make that statement true. I hate making these lists, more-so this year than any year previous. Yet I’m obligated to do so. So here I am.

You see, in January, I told myself that it would be a good idea to listen to more music. What resulted in that was a fine list of albums that I liked, some that I loved, and some that surprised me. Come December, I had roughly 90 records in a tidy Google …

Kyle Florence’s ‘Best Of 2013′ In Music

When I first sat down earlier in the week and began compiling my favorite albums of 2013, I had grand aspirations. I intended to compose a poignant piece of literature; a perfectly concise, beautifully cultured work of art. Yes, through the power of the written word, I would illustrate the life-altering potential of each of my favorite releases, and readers would be so overwhelmed with emotion that tears of joy would rain down from all directions.

Jump ahead four days, nine pots of coffee, and six annoyingly narcissistic drafts; I had still produced nothing, and I was growing quite irritated …
