Aaron West And The Roaring Twenties Releases Music Video For “Our Apartment”

Earlier last summer, Dan Campbell, or “Soupy,” fondly, of The Wonder Years, unveiled his solo side project, taking the persona of Aaron West And The Roaring Twenties. His debut record, We Don’t Have Each Other, was released in July. The Ace Enders-produced effort garnered a good amount of praise from its audience, including UTG.

Campbell has just released the music video for “Our Apartment.” It features a couple’s first dance at their wedding, while the band sings of the bitter end that this binding faces.

Glamour Kills’ Holiday Showcase Lineup Will Make Pop-Punk Fans Feel Some Type Of Way

A few weeks ago, PropertyOfZack announced that they will be celebrating their website’s fifth anniversary at Glamour Kills’ annual holiday showcase. The initial announcement did not include any bands but the $25 (before NYC tax) pre-sale price tag hinted at the idea that this show will be pretty special.

Taking place in all three stages of Webster Hall, POZ and GK have finally announced the showcase’s full lineup and it’s pretty sweet.

Modern Baseball Announce Fall Headlining Tour

In a recent interview with UTG, Philadelphia’s Modern Baseball talked about wanting to sit on their most recent full-length, You’re Gonna Miss It All, for a little bit and tour as much as they can before trying to work on another record.

The band is doing just that. Currently flying back home from the UK after a mini-tour over there, MoBo has just announced that they are to embark on yet again another headlining tour, which will be their second one this year. They have been on numerous tour cycles with bands like The Wonder Years, I Am

Gnarwolves Release New Song “Day Man” From Self-Titled Debut

Skate punk trio Gnarwolves are making noise in getting ready to release their self-titled debut on September 23 through Pure Noise Records. After hearing “Boneyard” and “Smoking Kills“, this LP will surely give a burst of energy come release day.

In anticipation of its release, the band is streaming yet another punk anthem in their new song “Day Man.” Premiering over at AbsolutePunk, the song is a rather fast-paced offering with slower choruses and serves as further evidence that the self-titled release will be a promising one.

Gnarwolves is available for pre-order here and if …

A low-key, dramatic cinematography vibe for an appropriately dramatic acoustic track, this new video features black and white footage of the band’s different shows and their travels across the country.

The Story So Far love to tour, plain and simple.

The Story So Far, The Wonder Years Announce Co-Headlining Tour

This morning has been one for the record books in terms of tour announcements. Within the last hour or two, Yellowcard made public a co-headliner alongside Memphis May Fire and Emarosa, only to be followed shortly after by Real Friends and handful of other Hopeless mainstays. In my opinion, however, the real must-see tour of the fall season was announced yesterday.

After a lot of speculation on Reddit, The Story So Far and The Wonder Years have confirmed that they will be joining forces this October for a month-long run which is scheduled to stop at over 20 different venues …

REVIEW: Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties – ‘We Don’t Have Each Other’

Artist: Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties
Album: We Don’t Have Each Other
Label: Hopeless Records

If nothing else can be taken away from Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties‘ debut record, then at least take away this: even in the most fictitious stories there can be subtle truths about struggle in life. Everyone goes through trials, tests, tribulations and people far wiser than myself will tell you it’s how you face these situations that helps mold and shape who you are and what you can become.

This is what We Don’t Have Each Other is about. It’s about …
