Denver rock duo In The Whale have spent 2014 becoming one of the most closely watched buzz bands in the world of rock. Now, following the release of two killer EPs and numerous nationwide tours, the band have shared a new track that rips like no other single in recent memory.

I know not everyone who reads this post was able to attend Riot Fest Denver, but had you been there you would know In The Whale opened their set with the killer cut you’re about to hear. Before the song was halfway over you could see people running …

Rise Against Debut Lyric Video For “Tragedy + Time”

Rise Against are always on the move in terms of their songwriting and how they explore different genres and tones and incorporate them into their everlasting punk sound. This songwriting process was showcased quite delicately in their latest record, The Black Market, which was released back in July.

Today, the band released a new lyric video for the poppy-sided track “Tragedy + Time” which definitely shows the band’s maturity in both their music and lyrics. Right now, the world is in a time of tragedy and Rise Against likes to stand up against this and show the way out.…

Restorations LP3 2014

Restorations Stream LP3

The word of mouth backing RestorationsLP3 has spread like wildfire, and thanks to a recent album stream provided by NPR, you can finally hear what the hype is all about.

We think it was a great decision for the band to use “Tiny Prayers” and “Separate Songs” as promotional singles for this new record. The tracks sure did open up a new sound for the five piece that’s fully fleshed out on LP3. There’s still plenty of time left to pre-order the album through SideOneDummy before its 10/28 release date, so get to clicking!

In three days, …

Bring Me The Horizon Debut A New Sound With “Drown”

Bring Me The Horizon have spent the last few years evolving, and the results have been evident in every piece of music they released. Their latest is no exception, and in fact might be the biggest change in sound the band has delivered to date.

“Drown” arrived online early this morning following an accidental reveal by the band’s label. The song boasts a very straightforward rock sound, with absolutely no screaming to be found anywhere in its four-minute runtime. Instead, Sykes sings about holes in his soul and how the weight of the world is increasingly hard to hold up. …

Dissecting “How About Now” And The World’s Ongoing Obsession With Drake

On Sunday night, something incredibly unexpected happened for the second time in two months: A track rumored to be off Drake’s upcoming album Views From The 6 found its way online through a source other than the rapper and his management team.

The song, titled “How About Now,” was first uploaded to the internet by a 17-year-old fan from Georgia, and as far as I’ve found, no explanation for how he came to be in possession of the unreleased material has surfaced, aside from a comment that it was an “exclusive leak.” It doesn’t really matter …

In The Whale Update “Ride” To Support The Denver Broncos

We said this a lot in our review of Riot Fest Denver, but In The Whale are quickly becoming our favorite unsigned band in the entire world. Their unique take on rock and roll is incredibly exhilarating, and their live show cannot be topped.

Today, the Colorado natives surprised fans by sharing an updated version of their fan favorite track “Ride” that is meant to show support for the Denver Broncos. The song is now called “(Mile High) Ride,” and it contains lyrics like “Number 18 with the forward pass, you other teams better watch your ass.” You can …

We’ll save our full sentiments for a later date, but it’s safe to say Pianos’ calmer venture appears to have been worth the wait.

While the record officially hits stores October 28 via Epitaph Records, pre-order options are available here for those who can’t wait to purchase Keep You after giving it a much-awaited listen. As always, feel free to let us know your …

Gwen Stefani Returns With New Single “Baby Don’t Lie”

This may seem almost impossible to believe, but eight long years have passed since Gwen Stefani released any new material. For a short time she was the reigning queen of alternative pop, but then her focus switched to family and though we were sad we could not complain.

Today, Gwen Stefani is back in music headlines with the release of a new single titled “Baby Don’t Lie.” The song is built on thick waves of anthemic synth, which Stefani uses to craft a story about romance and deception that harkens back to her previous hits while delivering a decidedly more …

Drizzy Drake is either trying a strange new form of viral promotion or he really needs to get a handle on who has control of his unreleased music because a new song hit the web without warning today and it’s quickly taking the net by storm.

“How About Now” found its way online shortly after noon on Sunday, October 19. The track was originally posted on Soundcloud by a 19-year-old fan from Georgia that has yet to reveal how they came to have the track in their possession. The song has since been removed from that page, but it lives …

Foo Fighters Stream “Something From Nothing”

The wait is over, Foo fans. The first song off Foo Fighters highly-anticipated new album has found its way online ahead of the record’s November street date.

Arriving on YouTube late Thursday afternoon, “Something From Nothing” showcases the latest evolution of Foo Fighters in just under five minutes’ time. It’s not the immediately catchy track many were expecting, but rather a slow burn effort that builds on a riff that sounds a lot like “Holy Diver” until everything boils over for a final hard rock jam session before things come to a close. I don’t think anyone could have expected …
