Foxing Announce Sophomore Full-Length, Stream Lead Single

St. Louis indie/emo band Foxing have just announced that they will be releasing their sophomore record this coming Fall via Triple Crown.

Entitled Dealer, the eleven-track album will serve as the direct follow-up to the band’s stellar debut record from 2013, called The Albatross.

“I was raised in Catholic school [which] imposed a very difficult stance on the freedom of sexuality,” frontman Conor Murphy tells NPR. “When I lost my virginity, I felt like it was less about love and more about sin. I have really never let go of or dealt with that guilt, which made …

Trivium Release “Until The World Goes Cold” Video

We still have over a month until Trivium drop their new studio album, but that isn’t stopping the metal titans from sharing another single from the highly-anticipated release.

Showcasing a mid-tempo side from Silence In The Snow, “Until The World Goes Cold” is as close to a power ballad as Trivium will ever release. That isn’t to say it’s a love song, but it does swing a big emotional hammer with driving guitars and Matt Heafy’s powerful vocals. I dare say this is the best he has sounded when singing, and it makes me excited to hear what …

Bring Me The Horizon Share New Song, “True Friends”

Bring Me The Horizon are continuing to turn heads and build anticipation for their upcoming album this afternoon with the release of yet another new song. If you thought the previous singles kept you on your toes, get ready. “True Friends” is one of a kind.

“True friends stab you in the front.” These words serve as the clincher to the hook of Bring Me The Horizon’s latest That’s The Spirit promotional single. The song is more or less a straightforward anthemic rock song, complete with sampled string accompaniment, and its driving midtempo melody is catchy enough to stick with …

That ‘Free’ Miley Cyrus Album May Not Be What You Expect

Miley Cyrus has yet to officially announce her fifth studio album, but already the pop star has found herself at the center of yet another media frenzy.

Cyrus has been planning for some time to release her new studio album for free. According to manager Adam Leber, the pop diva was even willing to buy out her record deal to make it happen. “If RCA wasn’t down the gratis plan, she was prepared to buy herself out of the label,” he told Marie Claire. Such a move should be grounds for a history making event. Never before has a …

The Oh Hellos Share “Bitter Water,” Fantastic Folk That Goes Down Easy

Maggie and Tyler Heath–maybe better known as the sibling duo The Oh Hellos–have announced that they’ll be following up their near-perfect 2012 release, Through The Deep, Dark Valley, with a brand new full-length this fall, titled Dear Wormwood. Yesterday, NPR had the honor of premiering the album’s new lead single and, if I’m being completely honest, it took me till today to stop listening to it long enough to write this piece.

The Oh Hellos’ sense of melody is refreshingly organic and truly untouchable, due heavily in part to both members’ staggering vocal abilities. Their huge walls …

Polyenso Share Tranquil New Single, “Osaka Son”

Late yesterday, Polyenso graced the interwebs with a dreamy new single titled “Osaka Son,” taken from their impending sophomore LP, Pure In The Plastic. Give it a listen below (via Consequence Of Sound).

“This song is about head versus heart,” vocalist Alex Schultz told COS. “In this case, you’re focusing on the head. It’s about all of those things you do throughout your life–big and small–that may not fulfill your soul, but for the meantime, you’re content because you’ve satisfied some kind of immediate desire. Like sleeping with someone you don’t love, or spending frivolously on things outside …

Motion City Soundtrack Release Lyric Video For New Track “TKO”

Motion City Soundtrack have given us the first taste of tunes from their upcoming, as of yet untitled new LP, with “TKO,” a new single from the band.

“TKO” is exciting for the band, as it feels like a return to form of freeing rock tinged with electronic pulses. The band has created a wonderful new jam with an infectious chorus and stellar production.

The track is also currently up for purchase on iTunes, something that I certainly recommend.

Hopefully more will be released about the new album, release window, and of course, more tunes. But, for now, “TKO” …

Fetty Wap Drops “679” Featuring Meek Mill And Rick Ross

“Trap Queen” superstar Fetty Wap is not taking his time in the spotlight for granted, and today he’s keeping us hooked on his unique sound by sharing a new track fans new and old are sure to love.

“679” is the kind of radio-ready track that could further solidify Fetty Wap’s recently-earned title of Billboard chart topper. The song finds the New Jersey native going in over bass-heavy production with assistance from Maybach Music Group heavyweights Meek Mill and Rick Ross. Such features would overshadow a lesser artist, but “679” remains Fetty’s track from beginning to end. You can …

Parkway Drive Is (Still) The Best Heavy Band In Music Today

Anytime Parkway Drive decide to treat the world to new music is cause for celebration as far as we are concerned, and their latest single is no exception.

Released this morning, June 9, “Vice Grip” reintroduces the world to Parkway Drive’s unique take on hard rock with huge riffs and an even larger hook. It’s the most straightforward rock song the band has ever shared, so much that it feels destined for radio play but it’s undeniably born from the same minds and influences that birthed the group’s heaviest material. Think of it as post-modern hard rock with a metal …

Shura Provides 7 Minutes in Heaven With “White Light”

Shura‘s singles have been dominating my playlists as of late and I never hesitate to add more. Following the beautifully infectious “2Shy,” the London pop songstress is back with a 7-minute dance epic that echoes her previous works with catchy choruses and undeniable ’80s influence.

“White Light” will make you move, and even at double the length of most of Shura’s tracks, you’ll probably be hitting play again as soon as it ends. It boasts a lot of airy atmosphere, Shura’s perfectly fitting vocal delivery, and some funky backing bass lines.

There doesn’t appear to be word …

Carly Rae Jepsen To Release ‘E•MO•TION’ This Summer; Listen To Its Lead Single

Having recently put out “I Really Like You” and “All That,” two absolutely sensational tracks, the Canadian singer-songwriter that brought us the radio hit “Call Me Maybe,” Carly Rae Jepsen seems to be gearing up for the release of her third full-length record, which is reportedly entitled E•MO•TION.

iTunes from Japan seems to report that the record will be released there on June 23. There has been no word as to whether or not the release date for North America is similar. In the meantime, though, you can listen to E•MO•TION‘s title track over …

DEATHS Continue To Impress With “Saviour”

Berlin’s DEATHS released two of my favorite tracks last year with “Sold” and “Lonewolves,” which were released on a b/w 7-inch. It took maybe 30 seconds of the latter before I was hooked. I’ve been craving more ever since and I’ve been watching closely as I expect DEATHS to blow up in no time and start occupying spots in the lineups all your favorite festivals.

Early last week, DEATHS returned with their third track to surface. “Saviour” is a tad more upbeat and hectic in its production but the brooding, somber tone is still very much …
