Game & Drake Swap Bars About The Realities Of Fame On “100″

The Game and Drake just delivered a new single that is destined to take hip-hop by storm in no time at all.

Remember when Drake was spotted dropping a few unreleased bars to a sold out Detroit crowd late last month? That so-called freestyle was actually an unannounced preview for the Toronto native’s latest collaboration with California heavyweight The Game. “100″ finds the two top shelf emcees swapping bars that address the snakes in the grass who think they slink by unseen, as well as the reality of pursuing your dreams in a time where most feel unable to even …

Senses Fail 2015

Senses Fail Stream ‘Pull The Thorns From Your Heart’

Senses Fail have begun streaming their highly anticipated Pure Noise debut, Pull The Thorns From Your Heart, a full week ahead of its official June 30 release. Check it out below (via MerchNow), along with a track-by-track commentary courtesy of vocalist Buddy Nielsen.

“Music-wise, it’s heavy as fuck, and I think on another level, it’s very post-rocky,” Nielsen told Alternative Press back in March. “There are a lot of movements and space and fluidity to the music. I’m really proud of it musically. I’m really proud of it lyrically. It’s the most complete presentation of the band as …

Self Defense Family Stream New Album, ‘Heaven Is Earth’

Self Defense Family are streaming their new LP, Heaven Is Earth, via Stereogum. The album is set to release June 30 via Deathwish, and you can pre-order the album here.

The recording process for Heaven Is Earth is as eclectic as the album sounds. Recorded in four different studios filled with nostalgic fame, Self Defense Family looked to Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios (Mind Eraser), Kurt Ballou at God City Studios (Converge), Mark Millar at Sone Lab (Dinosaur Jr), and Jon Low at Miner Street Recordings (Kurt Vile) to help in the production of the release. …

The Money Pit Will Fill The Hole Left By Gatsby’s American Dream

You can cut your hair and dress better than you did in college, but deep down all your mid-oughts emo and scene kids know your heart will always be glued to your shoulder with the permanent adhesive known as Jesse Lacey’s best lyrics. I know it and you know it. Just accept it and we can move on.

Alright. We all know the best bands of that era died too soon and most of those who didn’t have done everything in their power to evolve into something more than they were when they mattered to you. I prefer the ones …

The Devil Wears Prada Unleash Lead Single From Forthcoming EP, ‘Space’

Earlier today, The Devil Wears Prada offered fans their first glimpse of their forthcoming concept EP, Space.

Titled “Supernova,” the Ohio foursome’s newest single isn’t quite as heavy as many probably expected, but is no less engaging thanks to some stellar guitar work and smart synth. Stream it below, and let us know what you think in the replies.

“We learned a lot from the Zombie EP,” said frontman Mike Hranica. “We wanted each song on the Space EP to have specificity about it; to have its own identity separate from the others, to have its own sound, but …

Tigers Jaw 2015

Tigers Jaw Stream Moving Acoustic Rendition Of “I Saw Water”

Last year, Tigers Jaw mercilessly melted our hearts with Charmer, an evocative 12-song effort that beautifully showcased the outfit’s top-notch musical prowess. On June 30, the Scranton duo will return with their first-ever acoustic collection, Studio 4 Acoustic Session, and from all indications, it is going to be equally enthralling and wonderful.

Case and point: the record’s second single, “I Saw Water.” Straightforward, but not at any point boring, the group’s latest offering puts Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins’ airtight melodies front and center, and in doing so highlights the pair’s simple but effective songwriting. Check it out …

WRVTH

Stream WRVTH’s Spectacular Self-Titled Debut

The death metal masterminds of WRVTH (formerly Wrath of Vesuvius) have joined forces with Metal Sucks to begin streaming their brand new self-titled album in full.

While I’m usually hesitant to lean on bold proclamations, WRVTH is, without question, one of the best metal albums of the year. The Bay Area quartet’s stunning debut is both dynamically devastating and expertly refined, comprised of 11 pulse-pounding tracks that will almost certainly appease fans of Fallujah, All Shall Perish, and other shred-happy headbangers. Lush atmospherics share the stage with bone-crushing breaks and dizzying guitar solos, making for a delightfully unpredictable …

Meek Mill Joins French Montana & Chris Brown On “Poppin” Remix

It seems impossible to deny the fact rappers are seriously enjoying Atlanta newcomer Rico Richie’s street anthem “Poppin’.”

Following a series of remixes from Lil Bibby and Troy Ave, Meek Mill has joined French Montana and Chris Brown for a remix of “Poppin’” that is destined to leave your speakers smoking. It’s pretty much the Meek Mill show from beginning to end, but Montana delivers a few signature yelps of “Hanh” to remind you why he’s one of the most overused collaborators in hip-hop today. Brown is forgettable, but that is typically the case when the pop star …

Well Kept Things Stream ‘Homegrown’ EP

The wait is over, pop punk fans. After months of teasing and just two song premieres, Well Kept Things have shared a stream of their debut EP with the world.

Homegrown is the result of several young lives spent almost entirely in upstate New York. Buffalo has proven to be a breeding ground for innovative new bands and Well Kept Things continue that trend with a unique indie spin on conventional pop punk that will have you singing along in no time at all. The album will be released properly tomorrow morning, June 16, but you might as well start …

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 …

Migos-2015-YRN

New Music: Migos – “John Wick” & “Pretty Little Lady”

Despite an ongoing legal battle that has left one member behind bars for over a month, Migos continue to share new music with fans. We shared one new song last week, and just last night two more tracks found their way online.

Produced by Deko, “John Wick” and “Pretty Little Lady” showcase two very different sides of the Migos men. The former, which takes its name from the 2014 Keanu Reeves film with the same title, lays a foundation ripe for off the cuff ego-rap that Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff make their own in no time at all. The latter, …

REVIEW: Sudden Suspension – ‘There’s A Bigger Picture Here’

Artist: Sudden Suspension
Album: There’s A Bigger Picture Here
Label: Bad Timing Records

This is the sound of growing up.

For their third EP, Indiana natives Sudden Suspension have tasked themselves with encapsulating what it feels like to grow up in 2015, along with all the challenges one encounters along the way. From getting over heartache, to learning to love yourself, there is something here for everyone who has found themselves making the often painful transition from child to adult, and it’s all conveyed through infectious pop punk too good to resist.

If the world can thank Dan ‘Soupy’ Campbell …
