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 …

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 …

Refused Stream Second ‘Freedom’ Single, “Françafrique”

On June 30, Refused will unleash Freedom, their first new album in nearly two decades. In anticipation, the Swedish four-piece have begun streaming a poignant new track titled “Françafrique.”

Though considerably “lighter” than the previously released “Elektra,” the hardcore titans’ latest offering is no less affecting, drawing its power from the vivid imagery of frontman Dennis Lyxzén. Some exceptional guitar work further adds to the fun, and over the course of five minutes it becomes increasingly clear that, even after 17 years, Refused are still willing to take risks that most of their peers wouldn’t dream of. …

Rob Thomas Returns With New Single “Trust You”

Matchbox 20 frontman Rob Thomas has stepped back into the pop spotlight with the premiere of a new song titled “Trust You.” I should warn you: It’s catchy.

Co-written with One Republic frontman Ryan Tedder, “Trust You” is a fast-paced pop song that further evolves Thomas’ already dynamic and tenured sound. Thomas may have made his name in alternative rock, but his solo career has always boasted a heavy pop influence that is once again present on this track. That said, it’s not so in line with current radio hits as to feel immediately disposable in any way, shape, or …

Citizen Release “Stain” From ‘Everybody Is Going To Heaven’

Citizen are preparing to shatter any kind of assumption about their sophomore LP, Everybody Is Going To Heaven. Due out June 23 via Run For Cover, Citizen are bathing in darker and grittier waters than most would assume.

With the release of “Stain,” the second single from the LP, the band solidifies their new sound. Speaking with Alternative Press, guitarist Nick Hamm says, “we’re doing whatever we feel like and we’re not too worried about people missing a certain old sound or anything like that. The stuff we have prepared for the record is twice as big as …

Terror Return With Punishing New Track, “The Solution”

Hardcore heavyweights Terror have unveiled a bone-crushing new tune titled “The Solution.” Check it out after the jump (via Noisey).

“The lyrics are about children that had grown up in households that are negative, violent, and destructive to their innocence,” said vocalist Scott Vogel. “As the cycle continues, they soon will too become bitter and aggressive in their lives.”

The track is taken from the LA outfit’s sixth full-length album, The 25th Hour, which is set to arrive on August 7 through Victory Records.

Fast, heavy, and in your face from start to finish, Terror’s latest single is …

Sorority Noise Stream “Art School Wannabe”

Sorority Noise have begun streaming the lead single off their upcoming Topshelf debut, Joy, Departed.

Bubbly and accessible, “Art School Wannabe” finds the Connecticut four-piece stretching their creative muscles, resulting in what is quite possibly their most concrete undertaking to date. The hooks are huge, the songwriting is top notch, and Modern Baseball’s Jacob Ewald lays down an absolutely killer guest spot during the second verse. Check it out after the break (via The A.V. Club), and let us know what you think in the comments section.

Joy, Departed will arrive on June 16. Pre-order it here
