Album Review: Staring Into Nothing – Power

I am a huge proponent of progressive music, in all shapes and sizes. But what exactly is progressive music. Well… there are the flag bearers in Rush and Yes.

The band that MTV News and Substream Magazine  labeled as “The Maine with a jersey-boy, Springsteen vibe,” with a “sound like summer feels,” has released a brand new EP following their 2016 smash-hit EP, I’m So Dead.

Descendents fight fear with music

Descendents – Who We Are

The proto punk-rock group, Descendents have released another wonderful piece of art with politically charged anthems called Who We Are.

No Trigger – Adult Braces EP

“So I mean I ditched the bandana
Got a haircut, wore a clean shirt
Signed up for night classes
Got adult braces
Tried to sort that shit out straight
Thirty-five and still alive
I’m spinning straight into adult oblivion ” – Holy Punks

It’s been 5 long years since their last LP Tycoon was released, but the punk rock boys from Massachusetts are back and better than ever.

Untraveled Roads with Thousand Foot Krutch

Thousand Foot Krutch Release Live Album – Untraveled Roads

Creating an impactful, meaningful live album has always been a challenge for rock bands.  For every legendary Live At Fillmore East or Live At Budokon, there are just as many forgettable Who’s Lasts and Tokyo Dome Live In Concerts littering the cutout bins.  TFK’s upcoming live release, Untraveled Roads manages to avoid the pitfalls experienced by The Who and Van Halen, and they deliver a damn good live album.
