Trophy Lungs Release “Bathroom Graffitti” Video

After weeks of talk, Boston pop punk favorites Trophy Lungs have released the long-awaited video for “Bathroom Graffiti.”

Taken from their Antique Records debut, which is due out October 16, Trophy Lungs’ latest single is an ode to the friends who are no longer among the living.

Handguns Rise Above Genre Trends With “Disenchanted”

As much as Handguns have been considered a part of the current pop-punk movement, I have always thought of them as something of an outlier. Their music may play well alongside current alt-rock favorites, but the themes in their music and the way their fans engage with them is something wholly unique unto Handguns. What gives them this ability is not something you can pinpoint or pick apart, but rather something you feel when their music plays. It’s inspired by the now, but it’s also hoping to be something so much more than a disposable perspective on a fleeting moment …

The Weekend Classic Stream “Shattered Glass”

Indiana pop-punk favorites The Weekend Classic are continuing to carve a path all their own with the release of a new single titled “Shattered Glass.”

The first song to surface from the group since their early 2014 split with Before The Streetlights, “Shattered Glass” is an aggressive ode to coping with heartache. There are bruised egos and broken promises everywhere you look, but the band will power on, using their experiences as fuel for creativity. They’re done wasting time feeling sorry for themselves. They’re done trying to hold back the words they need to say. This is their battle cry …


Tonight Is Not The Final Fireworks Show

Tonight, after nearly a decade spent touring the world, Michigan pop rock outfit Fireworks are performing what will be their last show for the foreseeable future. This is not the same thing as their final show, and we felt it was important to remind you of the difference.

2015 has been a big year for the alternative scene. Between controversies, big singles, and bands falling apart it can be very hard to keep every band’s current plans straight in your head. When Fireworks announced this current tour would be their last before taking a well-deserved break, the defenders of …

Clouded is easily one of the few albums that are at the top of my “most anticipated” list so far this year. This Wild Life seemed to have come up out of nowhere and took the scene by storm.
