New Music Friday is a weekly post that highlights the best new music of the week. This week’s edition features both well-known and under the radar bands we think deserve a spin (or three), so give them all a listen. Whether you like pop-punk, progressive metal, indie rock, or anything in between, we think there’s plenty to sink your teeth into here. Especially that new Boston Manor record – a real stunner. Oh, and we’re including some exceptional new singles, too.
Currently touring in support of their most recent record The Canyon, The Used are back on the touring grind in full force. So too are melodic hardcore veterans Counterparts, and both bands are currently in Europe right now. Surely you see what we’re getting at, right?
The Used and Counterparts played a special show in Italy, where the two bands’ tours converged into one special event. Even better? Counterparts vocalist Brendan Murphy joined The Used to perform “A Box Full Of Sharp Objects”, and you can watch the video live. This just a day after Murphy professed his love for The Used – and let’s be honest here, most of us can probably relate.
Currently on a huge tour supporting Stick To Your Guns and Architects in the USA, Canadian melodic hardcore band Counterparts have debuted a new music video for the title track from their new record, 2017’s You’re Not You Anymore. You can watch the video below, as well as check the remaining tour dates. Clearly, 2018 is set to be the most successful year yet for the veteran band.
