After a nearly decade-long career which saw them amass a devoted following in the progressive post-hardcore scene, A Lot Like Birds officially called it quits earlier this year. Since the band played their final show last month at Sacramento’s First Fest, there has been rampant speculation about what creative endeavors each of the band members would turn their sights to next. And perhaps the most attention of all has been paid to the future of the band’s primary vocalist and lyricist, Cory Lockwood.
Tragodia is a metal/hardcore band from the Central Florida area. I first saw them perform at Backbooth a few months ago and I knew I wanted to shoot for them as soon as I could. The band consists of: Dan Placides (Vocals/Songwriter), Nathaniel Dobbins (Lead Guitar/Songwriter), Scott LaFlesh (Guitar), Nick Horan (Bass) and Joshua Newkirk (Drums). They’re very down to earth and have always shown kindness to me as a photographer. The band also has some new music coming out soon, which you can check out below.
The Amity Affliction have just announced their 5th full-length album, This Could Be Heartbreak. The band also just released a new song, “Bring The Weather With Me”. It’s the same Amity Affliction you know and love, but they’ve finally changed up the formula a bit. You can check out the new song below, as well as the cover art for the album.
As most people are aware of, Issues has been quite busy in the studio with recording and working on their new album Headspace. It’s expected to be released to the public May 20th – though they just gave us a sneak peek into another song titled “Blue Wall”. The official band tweeted this with the link of the new song “New song, it’s a heavy one. Dedicated to victims of overzealous police violence, past and present”.
