Early 2000’s pop-punk and ska-punk collided at House of Blues Orlando in Lake Buena Vista on June 21 with Reel Big Fish and Bowling For Soup. This energetic headlining duo along with opening band Nerf Herder sold out the venue a day before putting on arguably one of the best Florida shows Reel Big Fish has ever seen.
Panic! At The Disco mastermind Brendon Urie is more or less on top of the music world at this point, given that “High Hopes” – his biggest hit to date on the charts – is more or less inescapable almost anywhere you go. Given that he’s already worked with some massive talent in the recent past, would anyone really be surprised if Brendon worked with, say, Green Day?
After a 2015 touring accident that severely injured both band and crew, many thought The Ghost Inside might never play a show again. After all, the accident resulted in the loss of limbs, equipment, broken bones, and just about every other malady that could have befallen the hardcore/metalcore band, but the band refused to quit. The result? A comeback show for the ages that basically everyone is talking about this weekend – and certainly will be for a long time.
While we don’t truly know if the band will ever perform live again, one thing is for sure – fans of the passion that hardcore can bring to the table didn’t miss out on the band’s first show in 4 years last night. For the old-school TGI fans, the band even played “Shiner”!The show was packed full of people that have shown TGI support over the last ten years, and we have plenty of video footage for you to table through below, as well. Watch out.
San Diego’s rising four-piece post-hardcore band Thousand Below have just dropped the thunderously catchy new song and video for their new single, “Chemical”. The sprawling song, which was just released on Friday, takes the listener through a thrilling rollercoaster of emotions, moods, and sounds. The new music is the band’s first since 2017’s The Love You Let Too Close, which has seen the band support that record all around the globe.
