We recently got a chance to review the upcoming album, Damned Soul, from the dark pop-rock trio RIVALS; and it’s an album you’ll have stuck in your head for sure. Every song on this album is heavy-hitting, with Kalie Wolfe’s powerhouse vocals, and the band’s raw and unique sound, you can’t go wrong with these songs. The album comes out on February 2nd via Smartpunk Records, which you can pre-order here if you haven’t already.
New Found Glory and Bayside are a pop punk tour made in heaven. Having The Movielife and an ex-Yellowcard member in Ryan Key only tops this tour off with all 4 bands having a intertwined history together.
5 Year Plan are headed for a big 2018 by releasing their debut music video for “Awkward Conversations”. The single was originally released in 2017 via Wilhelm Records, garnering a great response across the Internet. We’re stoked to be premiering the new video, which you can find below.
The punk rock quartet formed in 2016 between Lafayette and Breaux Bridge, LA. 5 Year Plan spent the bulk of 2017 playing shows with bands like Broadside, Gold Steps, The Weekend Classic and Hold Close. The group is currently in the studio recording their debut full length album.
Front man Dylan Frederick mentions: “We went back to the studio that we had recorded our first song ever entitled “Dear Me” just for a little rehearsal. The energy in the room was really flowing and then we pulled out the camera and started filming us playing Awkward and it was just a real personal environment and I think it’s cool that we get to show that side of the band with people.”
For long-time Chelsea Grin fans who felt their previous release Self-Inflicted was sort of a letdown, or fans who are convinced that the band lived and died with “Recreant” (nope), there is hope – the band is now in the studio recording their 5th full-length. Co-producing are Drew Fulk and Joshua Travis, the latter of which has been a part of many of your favorite bands (currently, Emmure). This is definitely exciting news as Travis’ acumen for technical proficiency puts him in rarefied air.
Needless to say, people should be excited for this.
