REVIEW: The Madden Brothers – ‘Greetings From California’

Artist: The Madden Brothers
Album: Greetings From California
Genre: Pop, Rock

The Madden Brothers may have made their mint in the world of pop punk, but their latest collaborative release proves this duo are capable of far more than anyone could have imagined.

Greetings From California is the first release from Benji and Joel Madden to hit shelves under the name The Madden Brothers. It’s a fun and eclectic mix of music that strays far from the rock-driven world most think of whenever the pair are mentioned while digging deep into the works of those who influenced their creativity. My …

Purge Announce ‘Sewage’ 7-inch Pre-orders

Pittsburgh-based band Purge just announced pre-orders for their brand new 7-inch, Sewage, which is being released by Harm Reduction Records, an imprint label of Deathwish Inc.

For those unfamiliar with the band, Purge is the kind of band that crawls inside of your skull, plays around with your brain, then comes out your ears, leaving you feeling more angry than you already were. In short, they’re heavy and pissed, and are a necessary listen if you are a fan of bands like Nails.

If you like what you hear, make sure you pick up Purge’s new 7-inch on Deathwish …
