The American Scene Release First Single From ‘Haze’

A few days ago The American Scene announced their new album, Haze, due out September 9 via Pure Noise Records. Today we have been treated with the first single from the record, in the form of a music video for the killer track “Royal Blue.”

“Royal Blue” expands on the band’s abilities with a heightened groove, and even tighter musicianship. Try not to dance around during the chorus. Go ahead, I dare you. The video shows the band playing in black and white, accompanied by cityscapes.

Speaking to Alternative Press on the record, guitarist Jeff Wright had this to …

Stream Boardroom Heroes’ New Song “Never Ready,” Pre-Orders for ‘New Wage’ EP Live

The punks in DC-based band Boardroom Heroes just released a killer new track, titled “Never Ready,” which comes off of their latest EP, New Wage. The song is fast, catchy, and sounds like that late night skate session you have with your buddies on a cool Summer night. Is that a weird comparison? Probably, but it fits.

Boardroom Heroes also put up the pre-orders for the new record; the 10-inch vinyl version of the record is limited to 500 copies, and you can pre-order that here, or you can pick up a digital copy on Bandcamp. It’s …

Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) Share “A Keepsake,” Put Up Album Pre-Order

Forces of emo unite on “A Keepsake,” the second single off the upcoming Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) album You Will Eventually Be ForgottenBob Nanna of Braid - which released a wonderful new album earlier this summer – features on the track with a guest verse.

It’s always odd to hear another voice on an Empire! Empire! track, what with Keith Latinen’s distinctive voice and the band’s telltale twin guitars being so intrinsically tied on almost every other song from the band. It makes for a striking passage, akin to Matt Agrella’s verse on the finale

Guster Announce New Album For Early 2015 Release

Four years after releasing their last record, Easy Wonderful, Guster have finally finished working on their seventh studio album and are set to release it early in 2015.

Seeing as they will be independently putting the record out, the band states that they were able to write unrestrictedly, and that fans can expect a lot of good things. Fans were also given a vast array of pre-order bundles, which include fun stuff like shaving lead singer Ryan Miller’s beard in any way, shape, or form, or Karaoke with drummer, Brian Rosenworcel, in exchange for helping release the record.

Trioscapes Announce Sophomore Album, Stream “Stab Wounds”

A progressive fusion trio, aptly named Trioscapes, was first formed in 2011 by bassist Dan Briggs of Between the Buried and Me, and initially intended to be a one-time musical venture. After teaming up with Walter Fancourt (Casual Curious, Brand New Life) and Matt Lynch (Eyris), the guys found the project was too enjoyable to put down, and we’re certainly glad they came to that decision. The group went on to release a full-length debut entitled Separate Realities in May of 2012, and when we asked them if they had plans to continue the project beyond that release, …
