    L.A.’s Mike Shinoda drops his new EP, The Crimson Chapter today (12/1) via Warner. The new collection features 8 tracks, including new remixes of his latest solo single, “Already Over” and his previous single “In My Head (f/Kailee Morgue)” from the Scream VI Soundtrack.

    Shinoda said, “’Already Over’ came to me as I was sitting with my favorite guitar in my hands—the same guitar I used on songs from ‘What I’ve Done’ to ‘In My Head.’ There was a familiar DNA to the song that I think Linkin Park fans will recognize. For me, it creates a bridge from the past to a blurry but exciting future.” 

    He added, “This chapter takes some of my favorite things about releasing music – the songs, games, challenges, and visuals – and assembles them in a different way.”

    Shinedown has released The Library Sessions inspired by their current crossover single “A Symptom Of Being Human.” In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, the special November 28th broadcast event is benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), an organization dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide that Shinedown has been supporting for over a decade. 

    The Library Sessions video features stripped-down, acoustic performances of “A Symptom Of Being Human” and Shinedown’s previous #1 rock single “GET UP” along with the band reading real fan stories that were submitted to the Symptom Library. Through their lyrics and sharing their own personal stories as well as providing a safe space for fans to express their life struggles, Shinedown continues to shine a light on mental health awareness two decades into their record-setting career, while also reminding us of the importance of human connection and that we are not alone in this world. 

    “For over a decade, we have had the honor of working with the AFSP,” shares Shinedown front man Brent Smith. “Mental health is not a term to be taken lightly under any circumstances. We are all a work in progress, and we will all be challenged in our lifetime. That being said, we know we live in a world that has countless obstacles that we must overcome on any given day, and at times it can feel overwhelming. Remember, life is a journey…When we got the chance to sit down together and read fan-submitted stories, it once again showed us the power of humanity and served as yet another reminder that we’re not alone. This was something to be celebrated.”

    Nettwerk has announced the signing of Scottish duo SAINT PHNX and share the band’s new single “Something In The Water.” Check it out HERE.

    SAINT PHNX had this to say about their new single, “‘Something in the Water’ is a song about individuality. It’s about letting that inner person who you really are out for the world to see and not care what others think.”

    Formed in 2016, the Glasgow brothers, Stevie and Alan Jukes have hustled hard, performed countless gigs, and even touched down on U.S. soil to write in Las Vegas. The duo served up their single “KING” and eventually garnered over 19 million Spotify streams and counting. In between touring with Yungblud and opening for everyone from Lewis Capaldi to Imagine Dragons, they unveiled their independent full-length debut, DDMN, in 2020. 

    In the middle of SAINT PHNX’s international rise, their dad was diagnosed with the terminal lung condition, pulmonary fibrosis, so Stevie and Alan moved into a new house with him and turned the room above the garage into a studio.

    L.A. 3-piece Bad Suns share a new collection of songs titled Infinite Joy via Epitaph. Infinite Joy is the band’s fifth album. It was produced by Ben Allen (Washed Out, Walk The Moon).

    “The songs on Infinite Joy reflect an oceanic scope of emotions which colored the last year of my life,” said lead singer Christo Bowman. “In October of 2022 I got clean after a decade spent battling with alcohol abuse. In the direct aftermath, it was like experiencing an entire ten years’ worth of growth, in a matter of months. Growth doesn’t occur independent of pain, sorrow, joy — very emotion imaginable. I had to go through all of it, and resist none of it. It’s a journey I will be on for the rest of my life.”

    In celebration of the new release, Sirius XM Alt Nation premiered the new focus track “Everything Is…” The song combines witty lyrics, jangly guitars and a bouncy rhythm to find joy in letting go.

    Last month Bad Suns released the upbeat single and music video for “The One I Used To Love.”

    Bad Suns will be playing an Infinite Joy release show tonight at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, CA.

    Matisyahu announces his forthcoming Hold The Fire EP will drop on February 2nd via his own label Fallen Sparks Records. He also shared a new single “Fireproof.”

    “This song is about a dream I had about holding the fire,” shares Matisyahu. “The burning bush in the Torah is how God speaks to Moshe at first. Through a bush on fire that doesn’t consume itself. It became a metaphor for me as an artist and as a Jew. Moshe, the leader of the Jewish Nation, comes from the aspect of water spiritually. Literally, he was drawn from the river by Pharoh’s daughter after the mandate to kill the Jewish male babies. In my dream, I was being burned by fire from a tiger’s eyes but when I looked down at my hand, it was made of water. This aspect of balancing humility with the inner fire is what allows for the continuation of a people. Jews have been slaughtered and kicked around this world since the beginning of time and we have managed to not only survive but thrive, even though every two generations they try and exterminate or cut us down. We come from this ancient place of Fire and Water where we learn to dance through the violence and pave the road for the rest of humanity. Come dance with me. Hold the fire.”

    Matisyahu has released seven studio albums. His 2006 album, Youth, featured the breakthrough single “King Without A Crown.”

    The Struts have released their long-awaited Big Machine Label Group debut album today (11/3). Pretty Vicious is the fourth album for the Derby, England 4-piece.

    Lead singer Luke Spiller had this to say about the new 11 track album. “This record showcases each individual member’s strengths. It’s some of my favorite music, hands down, we’ve ever conjured up. It’s the record everyone’s been waiting for.”

    After nearly a decade of releasing music and touring at a breakneck pace, The Struts were finally able to take their time and perfect their sound with Pretty Vicious, co-producing each track with Julian Raymond (Glen Campbell, Cheap Trick, Fleetwood Mac) and working with Big Machine Label Group chairman and CEO Scott Borchetta ignited a newfound energy for the band.

    “Scott was like, ‘The bottom line is, I just want this band to fucking rock’,” Spiller says. “And that’s what we achieved.” 

    He adds, “We’ve never taken a left turn at a chorus, and we’ve always fought for really big hooks. But we’ve never been able to quite capture one of the best aspects of this group, and that’s how we sound live. Getting the chance to work up demos in an environment where we can take our time and play as a unit definitely resulted in the four of us feeling and sounding as close as we do on stage. We like big songs, and it’s an absolutely epic-sounding album.”

    The title track from the album, “Pretty Vicious” is the new single from the collection. It opens with Spiller crooning, “When you talk and everybody listens / and you walk and everybody whispers,” in a smoky, sultry tone. “Those lyrics were very instinctual,” he explains. “They aren’t super clever, but they felt right. It’s more about the vocal delivery. That’s what makes it dark and sexy. It’s not overthought. It felt great from the moment we started to write it.” 

    The original demo of the song went viral on TikTok after the band shared it online, going back into the studio to perfect it for the album release. “For me, it’s the best song on the album,” he admits. “It’s something we’ve never done before, and it has this undeniable mood to it. I still go back and listen to it purely for pleasure.”

    The Last Dinner Party announce their debut album, Prelude To Ecstasy, will be released on February 2nd via Island Records. It was produced by James Ford in London, and will feature the band’s breakthrough single, “Nothing Matters,” which is heading Top 20 on the Alternative chart.

    To coincide with the album’s announcement, the all-female quintet also shared another new track, “On Your Side.” It’s the fourth new offering from the forthcoming album following “Sinner” and “My Lady Of Mercy.”

    About the album, The Last Dinner Party had this to say, “Ecstasy is a pendulum which swings between the extremes of human emotion, from the ecstasy of passion to the sublimity of pain, and it is this concept which binds our album together. This is an archeology of ourselves; you can exhume our collective and individual experiences and influences from within its fabric. We exorcised guitars for their solos, laid bare confessions directly from diary pages, and summoned an orchestra to bring our vision to life.“It is our greatest honour and pride to present this offering to the world, it is everything we are.”

    The UK band is currently on a sold-out tour of the U.S. tour dates. The upcoming tour dates include November 2nd in New York at Bowery Ballroom, November 4th in Philadelphia at Johnny Brenda’s, November 6th in Los Angeles at El Rey Theatre, and November 9th in Chicago at Bottom Lounge.

    MGMT announce their fifth studio album, Loss Of Life, will be released on February 23rd via Mom+Pop Music, the band’s new home following a long tenure with Columbia Records. It’s the followup to 2018’s Little Dark Age. The duo of Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser produced the 10-track Loss Of Life with Patrick Wimberly (Beyoncé, Lil Yachty). Longtime collaborator Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Spoon) mixed the album as he has done on the group’s past four full-lengths.

    The lead single “Mother Nature” arrived on Halloween with the album announcement.  According to the band, the song “outlines the archetypical MGMT mythology of one hero attempting to get the other hero to come on the journey that they ‘must’ go on. One part sounds like Oasis.” 

    The animated video for “Mother Nature” was directed by another MGMT longtime collaborator, Jordan Fish, who has worked with the group since Oracular Spectacular. In the clip, two animal friends named Dog and Turtle team up to take down an evil pet collector. “I hope the story makes people happy and feel connected to family, friends and the animal kingdom as well,” says Fish. The themes of Loss Of Life will be further explored through future videos made by a remarkable roster of writers, producers and directors.

    Watch the “Mother Nature” video HERE.

    “All joking aside (never!), we are very proud of this album and the fact that it was a relatively painless birth after a lengthy gestation period, and are happy to be releasing this baby into the world with Mom+Pop,” MGMT says. “Musically speaking, we are running at around 20% adult contemporary and no more than this, please.”

    Duran Duran has released a real treat for Halloween. The UK new wave quartet dropped their 16th album, Danse Macabre, via Tape Modern/BMG last Friday (10/26). The 13 tracks include newly reimagined versions of their own spooky classics along with covers of Billie Eilish’s “Bury A Friend,” Talking Heads “Psycho Killer,” The Rolling Stones “Paint It Black,” Rick James “Super Lonely Freak,” Siouxsie And the Banshees “Spellbound,” Cerrone “Supernature,” and The Specials “Ghost Town.” Victoria De Angelis of Maneskin appears on the album’s focus track, a cover of Talking Heads “Psycho Killer.” 

    Duran Duran bassist John Taylor said, “The first time I met Vic, I asked her who her bass inspirations were. “Right away,” she said, ‘Tina Weymouth!’ I said, ‘Me too.’ When the idea of covering ‘Psycho Killer’ came up, I thought, ‘I’m going to call Vic.’ She loved the idea, naturally!”

     Victoria De Angelis adds, “I got a call from John…saying he was working on a cover of Psycho Killer, and he wanted to ask me first about playing on it. It was insane being asked by one of the greatest bass players ever to play one of my favorite songs with Duran Duran. Absolutely insane. I’m so grateful and honored, it was so much fun recording together with John and he was so sweet to me and encouraged me to express myself and play it my own way. I’ll always remember that day.”

    In celebration of their new album READY TO EAT, L.A. trio Beauty School Dropout are giving back to the community on their current U.S. headline tour. For every radio, press, + DSP attendee, the band will donate a meal to local food banks in each tour market. 

    If you’d like to attend the show and help a good cause, you can be added to the list by sending an email to Once at the show, send a picture of the band on stage to the same email and a meal will be donated in your name. 

    Fans will be encouraged to donate digitally at each show via QR code, which will be posted at various points throughout the show, and all donations will go directly to the food pantry partner.

    “READY TO EAT is the culmination of our high highs, low lows and everything in between,” says the band. “The album is a sonic spiral through our personal struggles with addiction, relationships and love (or lack thereof). The album is meant to be a reflection of our growth and our intentions to overcome every obstacle that life throws our way. From the last album to this one we have traveled the world, performed in places we never felt possible, gained fans all over but still have to deal with the trials and tribulations that are being a band putting 500% into our career. As much as it looks from the outside that our lives are skyrocketing, we are still dealing with the same issues we have been for years, only amplified. This album is our purge to our fans and an expansion and growth from where we started and a glimpse into where we are going.”

    Beauty School Dropout was signed by A&R Mark Hoppus under the new label Verswire with Pete Wentz and Sherry Saeedi. Hoppus said, “I’m always impressed by how hard these guys work, their talent and uncompromising creativity, and their dedication to their fans.”

    Below are the upcoming Beauty School Dropout tour dates:

    Canadian artist TALK announces a North American headlining tour in 2024 to support his debut album, Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees, which released last Friday (10/20) via Capitol Records. TALK performed his first of three shows opening for country queen Shania Twain earlier this week in Toronto.

    “The concept for ‘Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees’ was dreamed up by my executive producer Justin Tranter and I,” TALK explains. “I think what we created was almost exactly what was originally envisioned—an album that was made with love and heart, that I hope will put a smile on people’s faces or be a warm hug to those who need one.”

    While the album navigates a flood of emotions—both good and bad—it ultimately sees hope prevail. “Thematically the album is about love and friendship being able to survive anything. It’s never too late to lift someone up,” TALK adds. Filled with big dramatics and blistering guitar solos, the 10-track set never lets up, from upbeat opener “Fall For You” to the acoustic slow-burner “A Little Bit Happy” to the fiery call-to-arms “Wastleland.” By album closer “Set On Me,” TALK is ready to soar—“I won’t let the sun set on me,” he declares in his booming howl—and it’s hard not to be pulled into his rays. 

    The new album features TALK’s breakout single “Run Away To Mars.”   

    Next year’s headline tour will kick it off on February 9th in Detroit before hitting most major markets around the U.S., including Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, and ending in Boston on March 10th.  The artist presale launches at 10a on October 24th with general ticket sales opening at 10a on October 26th.

    beabadoobee has collaborated with jazz singer Laufey to release a new single “A Night To Remember.” “I’ve been writing with a lot of different rhythms recently, also with strings and nods to more classical sounds,” shares beabadoobee on the song. “Laufey is a great fit for this sound and we had started hanging out in London, so we got in the studio together to work on music and try ideas with my producer Jacob. We also hung in NY on my tour and started becoming closer friends. We wrote ‘A Night To Remember’ and decided we wanted to write something that sounds grand but a bit more sexy lyrically and have fun with that theme.”

    “Bea has been one of my favorite musicians for a while so getting to write and sing with her was a dream come true,” continues Laufey. “We both agreed that we wanted to write something a bit sexier for this project and ‘A Night To Remember’ was born. There are so many songs about being rejected as a woman and this song is about being on the other side of the coin – having one great night then walking away. Reclaiming the narrative! We recorded it in London with Jacob, Bea’s producer and added some finishing touches in LA with my producer Spencer Stewart. This song is a true marriage of my and Bea’s sonic worlds and I can’t wait for the world to dive into the cinematic sound this song offers.”

    Australian band Vacations announces their new album, No Place Like Home, will be released on January 12th. The upcoming record follows an intense period of transformation for the lead singer Campbell Burns, who was diagnosed with Pure OCD (or “Pure O”), a subtype of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder marked by intrusive, unwanted, and uncontrollable thoughts. His experiences learning to live with this while touring the world informed the record, which also engages in nuanced discussions around personal growth and sexuality. 

    Burns said, “I found it extremely difficult to write anything for years. I didn’t know what Vacations’ voice was anymore, or even my own in a day-to-day sense. I had to find a way to fall back in love with music and so much else in my life, or I knew I would simply cease to exist.”

     The album was produced by Campbell Burns and John Velasquez (Zella Day, Broods). “I had this loose concept of No Place Like Home being an Americana-influenced album,” Campbell says of the album’s sonic inspirations. “I wanted to incorporate more pianos, acoustic guitars, Nashville tuning, and country-inspired lap steel, but then also bringing in drum machines and synths and finding a mix between the two.” 

    The lead single “Next Exit” has over nine million streams and is chart bound at Alternative. Vacations is currently in the middle of a Tourzilla with Last Dinosaurs.

    Teenage UK three-piece HotWax release their second EP Invite me, kindly via Marathon Artists this week. Mixed by Alan Moulder (Foo Fighters, Wet Leg, Arctic Monkeys), Invite me, kindly encapsulates the three-piece’s ability to harness the firepower of grunge pioneers, matched with great songwriting and musicianship. The band has released three singles “High Tea,” “Phone Machine,” and “Drop” from their newest collection.

    “Writing this EP felt really good, it all came together really quickly and the majority of the songs just fell into place.” explains singer Tallulah Sim-Savage. “I felt I had lots of phrases saved up in my head that I couldn’t wait to put into my lyrics. The EP looks at themes of acceptance to people who have hurt you before, letting your doubts leave you and feeling free. Playing these songs live this summer has been so refreshing, I still feel so passionately about a lot of the lyrics, which makes it feel very therapeutic to perform. Working with Alan Moulder on recording the EP was amazing, he was so open to our ideas and really helped our vision come to life.”

    Barely out of school, Tallulah Sim-Savage (vocals and guitar), Lola Sam (bass) and Alfie Sayers (drums) completed a stacked summer of festivals and tours having played riotous shows at Mad Cool, All Points East and Reading & Leeds. 

    The current HotWax single at Alternative Radio is “Rip It Out.” It’s from the band’s debut EP, A Thousand Times, released in May.

    Yungblud teams up with Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon on a new single “Happier.” Check it out HERE. “Happier: marks the second collaboration together following Bring Me The Horizon’s single “OBEY” in 2020, and comes ahead of Yungblud joining the band on their Asia tour later this month.

    Speaking about the track, Yungblud reveals, “I have almost been conditioned by myself my whole life to be in pain. When I’m in pain I work better. I function better because I have something to combat. It’s dark but it’s all I’ve ever known. The feeling of happiness is scary because you feel like it’s all about to go wrong. I have always felt that if I’m happy I’ll get complacent so it’s lost me a lot of opportunity for friendships and relationships in the past. I got really emotional when writing this. I was craving another Yungblud song that would burn in my stomach, make me feel like it’s all gonna be ok and encourage me to fight back against old habits and try my best to re-align myself to be better. It’s ok to find happiness, it’s ok to feel it. I hope you find a little bit of it in this song. You deserve it. Everyone does.”

    I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME (iDKHOW), the musical project of Salt Lake City-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Dallon Weekes, unveils his new single, “What Love?” from sophomore album, GLOOM DIVISION, scheduled to drop on February 23rd via Concord.

    “What Love?” is an homage to the sexually suggestive R&B hits of the 90s. It arrived with a visually captivating video directed by iDKHOW’s longtime collaborator, Raúl Gonzo. The mastermind of Dallon Weekes is on a bewitching journey through a vivid set, reminiscent of a scene straight out of a John Waters film, seamlessly transitioning between various eccentric characters. Watch the video for HERE.

    The album, produced by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT, Weezer), showcases a boundary-pushing fusion of R&B, post-punk and art-pop, exploring themes ranging from love and obsession to satanic panic and neurodivergence. Recorded at Fridmann’s Tarbox Road Studios and Weekes’ own basement studio, GLOOM DIVISION is a testament to the power of collaboration and fearless artistic expression. The band’s drummer/backing vocalist Ryan Seaman is no longer part of iDKHOW.

    “Writing has always been an outlet to exorcize your demons or difficult emotions, but with GLOOM DIVISION I made a conscious effort to stop censoring myself when it comes to the subject material, or what I wanted to say,” said Weekes.

    iDKHOW has garnered nearly 1 billion million streams worldwide to date, with 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify.  The new album follows iDKHOW’s critically acclaimed debut, Razzmatazz, which included the #1 Alternative radio hit “Leave Me Alone.”

    Speaking on the new single the band shares, “Braindead is a song about just knowing someone who’s dumb. It’s a dumb anthem if you will. We wanted a song to have non-stop energy from start to finish and that’s what this song is.”

    House Parties will be heading out on tour later this month in support of Can’t Swim and Belmont. Find the tour dates HERE.

    Madison, Wisconsin 4-piece Slow Pulp drop their sophomore album, Yard, via Anti-/Epitaph today. The 10-track collection from the Chicago-based band features lead single “Cramps.” Lead singer/guitarist Emily Massey shared, “The song came out of a jam at practice right after I had proclaimed that my period cramps were particularly bad that day. It is about searching for things you wish you had in other people and creating this character in your head that has all the physical and emotional attributes you feel that you are lacking.”

    Slow Pulp’s full-length debut album Moveys was released in 2020 while powering through health challenges, personal upheaval, and a pandemic. The lifelong friends since  elementary school —  Alexander Leeds (bass), Theodore Mathews (drums), and Henry Stoehr (guitar) — performed in bands together since the sixth grade while growing up in Madison. Emily Massey (vocals/guitar) joined them in 2017 and they formed Slow Pulp. 

    The band first started working on new songs in the Spring of 2019, immediately after the release of their EP, Big Day, but they ended up scrapping the material. “When we started writing this record, I had been experiencing so much fatigue and getting sick a lot and I didn’t know what it was. I got diagnosed with Lyme disease and a chronic Mono,” says Massey. 

    She adds, “The diagnosis validated a lot of what I was feeling. I got tools for how to take care of myself better.” For Massey, taking care of herself meant more than just addressing her physical needs. “The way that I internalize trauma is I will hold it in and not process it for a very long time, but writing songs is the one place where I can’t hide from myself. It just comes out whether or not I want it to or if I’m ready for it to. Figuring out how to write together, as a band, was like me learning how to take care of myself and learning how to communicate better.”

    Slow Pulp recently toured with Death Cab For Cutie and The Pixies. They begin a headline tour October 4th in Milwaukee.

    Detroit-born, Chicago-bred, L.A. based singer-songwriter Petey released his second studio album, USA, via Capitol Records on September 22nd. The 12-track USA collection is his major label debut. To mark the occasion, Petey will be enjoying the great American pastime as he throws out the first pitch at this afternoon’s Cubs vs. Rockies game at Wrigley Field in Chicago. 

    Recorded mainly at Gold-Diggers Sound in L.A. with co-producers Aidan Christopher Spiro and John DeBold, USA came to life with equal parts intention and spontaneity. 

    “For me making music has always been like throwing spaghetti at the wall, and working with John and Aidan allowed me to be reckless and experimental while giving each song the care it deserved,” says Petey, who plays guitar, bass, drums, and synth on USA. “It helped me fulfill the only real goal I had for the album, which was to make sure every single song would be super-fun to play live.” 

    Petey will be bringing his USA tour to 10 states (and one Canadian province), beginning with a November 3 show at Terminal West in Atlanta. The headline run will include shows at NYC’s Irving Plaza (November 11) and The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles (December 6).

    AWOLNATION announce a new EP, Candy Pop, will drop on November 22nd via Twenty Two Five Music. The title track was released today accompanied by a cinematic music video – the final of three videos directed by Eliot Charof.

    The videos for the previously released singles “Freaking Me Out” and “We Are All Insane” prelude the finale in “Candy Pop.” The trilogy of videos take inspiration from classic film and paranoid fiction, revealing a dreamlike world that feels both futuristic and bygone.

    “It’s a story about escaping from never-ending technological advancements and constant connectivity and scrutiny… The adventure of a lifetime can come from ‘tuning out,’” says AWOLNATION architect Aaron Bruno.

    Watch the music video for “Candy Pop” HERE. 

    “The intention with “Candy Pop” was to create a song that epitomizes the seductive nature of pop music and pop culture, while pointing out the absurdity of it all at once,” says Bruno on the new song.

    AWOLNATION kicked off a tour this week with 311. Find the tour dates HERE.

    British band The Vaccines released “Heartbreak Kid” on September 20th Super Easy/Thirty Tigers. It’s from their forthcoming sixth album Pick-Up Full Of Pink Carnations, which will be released on January 12th. The album was produced by Andrew Wells (Halsey, Phoebe Bridgers).

    “There are two types of people in the world – people that have had their heart broken and people that haven’t had their heart broken yet,” said lead singer Justin Young. “‘Heartbreak Kid’ is a call to arms, a reminder that in a world where too many of us feel too detached too often, facing your feelings head on can make you feel more alive, even if it feels like the world is ending. It’s a song to keep you company on the busy freeway that connects loss to discovery.”

    The Vaccines are Justin Young (lead vocals, guitars), Árni Árnason (bass, vocals), Timothy Lanham (guitars, keys, vocals) and Yoann Intonti (drums). Pick-Up Full Of Pink Carnations was recorded at producer Andrew Wells’ home studio in Los Angeles and maxied by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips).

    On the album, Young said, “It’s about loss. And coming to terms with that loss – not necessarily grieving for it, but trying to get a new understanding of it.”

    “Galloping Seas (Section 44)” is the lead single from The Polyphonic Spree, who return with a their eighth studio album, Salvage Enterprise, out November 17th via Good Records. It’s the Spree’s first body of original compositions in almost a decade, led by front man, founder, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and visionary Tim DeLaughter, the group prepare to embark on their next chapter.

    The new song “Galloping Seas (Section 44)” is a heart-rending soul-anthem that affixes softly strummed acoustic guitar to an orchestral hum as Delaughter says, “Hold on through the galloping seas.” 

    “We’re all galloping through rough waters,” said DeLaughter. “I tried to describe the process as well as I could and encourage people to keep their heads above the storm and the waves. Ride it out. It’s going to be okay. It starts off very calm and introspective, and you can envision where it’s going.”

    The lead track “Galloping Seas (Section 44)” is 6:24. Check it HERE.

    DeLaughter describes it as as a “rising-from-the-ashes record” He shares on the album’s sound: There’s an acoustic current running through the whole body of work, and we tried to embrace it as a thread. It has a lot of space to contemplate what we’re going through. I was very specific on instrumentation. I knew I wanted a cross between a Percy Faith and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young record. With the ability of The Spree to have crescendos, peaks, valleys, we were able to add depth and texture to the classic harmonies and rich folk music.”

     On the lyrics and message of the record, DeLaughter said, “Across all of the music I’ve done, lyrically there’s a sense of desperation and a moment of convincing myself I’m going to make it through regardless of how the music dresses up. On this one, I struggled with the amount of vulnerability I was experiencing and was willing to share both musically and lyrically, but ultimately decided to let it play out. Now that it’s done, I’m happy with the dance between the two.”

    Taking Back Sunday released their new single “S’old” on September 6th via Fantasy/Concord. It arrived with the announcement that their eighth studio album 152, will drop on October 27th. Named for the section of road in North Carolina between Highpoint, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh where the band and their friends would meet up as teenagers. 152 is the band’s first full-length offering since 2016’s Tidal Wave. 

    Commenting on their new album 152, Taking Back Sunday stated: “152 offers a lot more hope and light than we first realized when we were in the thick of it, putting it all together. We’ve been fortunate enough, through our music, to grow up with a lot of people going through the same things at the same time, and probably feeling the same way. Our hope is that you’re able to find a little bit of yourself in this new collection of songs, because you’re not alone, and neither are we.”

    Produced by Tushar Apte (whom the band met through a mutual collaboration with DJ Steve Aoki) and mixed by Neal Avron (twenty one pilots, Bleachers), the long-awaited album LP features 10 intensely vulnerable and absorbing new tracks all delivered with fresh ambition and newfound purpose. Inspired by the long layoff and the cloud of uncertainty that blanketed the world (and music industry) these past few years, 152 stands among the most genuinely reflective and emotionally pure efforts of Taking Back Sunday’s illustrious career.

    Originally from Long Island, NY, the 4-piece consists of John Nolan (lead guitar, piano, vocals), Adam Lazzara (lead vocals), Shaun Cooper (bass) and Mark O’Connell (drums). You would think after 20 years, we knew what each other is going to do,” said Lazzara. “But there were so many times making this record where I heard the initial idea and thought I knew where it would go, but then I was super surprised. It’s those kinds of surprises that make it so exciting. That’s why we all still want it so badly.”

    Added O’Connell: ”When we’re writing songs, the one thing we ask ourselves, ‘Is it capable of making people feel something?’ You try to make people feel emotion. That’s the one goal we went in with, and we think we did it.”

    Taking Back Sunday continually challenged one another, exploring musical ideas in new and exciting ways. So many of these tracks dig deep and connect on a gut level. The lead single “S’old” struggles with the obligations of adult responsibility and acceptance.

    Blue October has shared their new video for their single “Down Here Waiting.” Watch it HERE! It’s from the band’s new album, Spinning The Truth Around Part II, set to drop September 29th.

    “We feel like we’re at the height of our craft,” said Justin Furstenfeld, who found inspiration in R&B and hip-hop, namely J Dilla and Marvin Gaye. The album is the story of two people growing apart. Even if you did love someone, it’s okay if you both fall out of love. It’s the story about a loving relationship that changed, when the world was falling apart. Nobody had a rule book. You don’t have to end a relationship and hate each other. Life is so short. There is love out there.”
