Dealer is reportedly going through a massive change, or quite possibly a break up. Dealer has lost all of their members besides Aidan, the vocalist. It’s reported the rest of the band jumped ship after learning more about the vocalist’s past, and a court case also appears forthcoming for Aidan. The vocalist of Dealer was formerly the vocalist of Alpha Wolf before being kicked out.
You might be shocked at the amount of video games that many musicians play in their spare time. If you think about it for a minute, though, it’s not all that surprising. The gaming industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, and really it has been for many years now. Games like Grand Theft Auto V and the COD franchise bring in billions of dollars in revenue, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
We’re stoked to bring you another edition of our new series, The Video Games That Changed My Life – or in this case, a singular game. Chris St. John, bass player for pop-rock band Waiting For London, is joining us today for this feature – and this time, it features a game that many consider the archetypal modern RPG game. Yes, we’re talking about Final Fantasy VII – a game which got a spiffy remaster earlier this year, to critical acclaim. Join us below while Chris takes you through the game – and why it means so much to him. You can also check out a previous edition of this series here, starring Nikki from New Year’s Day.
It’s been 3 years since South Korean metalcore upstarts End These Days have released a new album, but luckily for you – especially if you’re a little late on the band’s hype train – the band has a new song out. The single, “Dead End”, is one of three songs you’ll be able to find on the band’s upcoming EP of the same name, which drops June 22nd. We’re also stoked to be premiering the title track alongside Dreambound, and needless to say, we think you’ll like what this young metalcore band is doing.
Nostalgia is a powerful thing. While there’s plenty to be said for modern bands that draw influence from the music of the past, there are also unfortunately quite a few bands that fail to become more than a half-rate clone of the scene they’re trying to emulate.
Thankfully, Delaney is not that band. The 4-piece alt-rock band from New Hampshire might be a newer band on the scene, but their music – which draws from the likes of The Dangerous Summer and Jack’s Mannequin – is on par with the bands that influence them. We’re stoked to be teaming up with the band for the premiere of their new song, “Do You Want To Be Afraid?”. Fans of pop-punk and Jimmy Eat World will want to pay close attention to what this promising band is doing, and fast.
