It’s May already! Here in Florida, the temperatures are reaching 90 on any given day, and everyone is beginning to break out those bikinis and pale, winter skin.

From beach days to trips around the country, here is the road trip playlist that will guide them all.

New Music from Falling In Reverse
“Broken” was the first song announced off of Coming Home, the newest Falling in Reverse album, and was released on March 21st—about two weeks in advance of the full album.

Radke seems to be struggling with not only how his own life is playing out, but also how the people around him are living, going as far as to call those alive now “the broken generation”.
Show Review: Explosions in the Sky
Explosions in the Sky, an indie rock band from Austin, Texas, gave a captivating performance April 12th at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg. With sounds that range from chill bass to exploding guitars and drums, Explosions in the Sky absolutely live up to their name. They are one of those rare bands that actually manage to sound better live than in a recording studio.
“Skull and Bones” by The 10x, featuring Ben Schuller, incorporates an easy-going guitar rhythm, catchy beat, and thought-provoking vocals.
A refreshing addition to the pop-rock genre, “Skull and Bones” sounds almost to be a mix of a newer band, The 1975, with a classic sound, similar to U2. There truly is no comparison though—The 10x has created a sound that is unique to them only.
