From First To Last Stream ‘Dead Trees’ In Its Entirety

It has been over five years since From First To Last released their last album. At that time, Matt Good was responsible for the lead vocals. Half a decade later, Spencer Sotelo is taking the lead on vocals, and FFTL seem like an entirely new band. With singles like “I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good” and “Black And White” they have proven that they are capable of writing songs that are nostalgic for fans, but still original enough to bring in new listeners.

The album officially hit stores tomorrow, so Sumerian Records …

From First To Last Unleash “Black And White”

​Last month From First To Last finally announced details for their forthcoming album, Dead Trees. Now the band has released the first official single since the announcement. The new song is titled “Black And White,” and it’s available to stream below.

Out of the two singles, I have to say that this is my favorite. While the band will obviously never recreate the exact same sound they had with Sonny Moore as the frontman, they have done a great job of maintaining a sound reminiscent of their previous work. I enjoy listening to this song, and look forward to …

CHON Stream First Single From Sumerian Records Debut, ‘Grow’

I’ll be the first to admit how bummed I am about how late this post is.

However, in typical CHON fashion, the first single from their upcoming full-length, Grow, is an absolute thrill of a listen. Chock full of groove and technical prowess, and devoid of any vocals as per usual, “Story” is CHON at their finest. You can enjoy the new single via nature-based, kaleidoscopic video below.

Grow will be released through the band’s new label home of Sumerian Records on March 23. CD pre-order bundles are available now through a handful of online locations, along with several …

REVIEW: Stick To Your Guns – ‘Disobedient’

Artist: Stick To Your Guns
Album: Disobedient
Genre: Hardcore Punk
Label: Sumerian Records

Even though they may have taken the world by storm with their critically acclaimed 2012 release Diamond, an extra step was needed in order for Stick To Your Guns to solidify their place in the punk rock and hardcore world as one of the most important acts in the scene. That step is showcased in Disobedient, a punk outcry filled with uplifting lyrics and genre-changing melodies. While keeping relentless riffs and screaming vocals intact, the band has evolved to a more polished overall sound with …

Night Riots Howl

Stream Night Riots’ Outstanding New EP, ‘Howl’

California rock outfit Night Riots have teamed with Earmilk to begin streaming their highly anticipated EP, Howl. Check it out after the break.

A follow-up to 2013’s Hallowed Ground, Howl finds the Sumerian five-piece stretching their creative muscles with the help of producer Eric Palmquist (The Mars Volta). The opener, “Oh My Heart,” welcomes listeners with a wave of pulsating synth, only to be followed by the aptly titled “Contagious,” which swells to a sky-high hook that seems destined for mainstream greatness. “Break” plays out like a carefree Hot Fuss B-side, while “Follow You” seems to have …

From First To Last Sign With Sumerian Records

The recently reunited From First To Last, now featuring Periphery vocalist Spencer Sotelo, have announced that they have joined the Sumerian Records roster and will be releasing their new album under the label.

While I admire the label’s ability to pick up a band as big as From First To last, this is a confusing move to me. The band successfully funded their new record via Kickstarter late last year and have already released a new single, “Dead Trees.” Considering the album is done and paid for, why make the move to a label as big as …
