Astari Nite Brings Goth New Wave Back!

Astari Night Features New Music on Upcoming Florida Dates

In order for me to describe the song, “The Girl Who Tried,” I would have to take you back to a track called “The Boy Who Tried.” Released in 2014 by a band called Astari Nite, off of their EP Anonymous, this song starts with a low frequency gritty rumble and makes it’s way into synth sounding electronica with a nice heavy bass and drums.

Switchfoot Heads to Florida on the Heels of Where the Light Shines Through

Have you ever listened to an artist your whole life and then when you hear their newest album it shakes you to the core wondering where this magnificent different sound came from? That would be the question I asked when I first heard Switchfoot’s latest album, Where the Light Shines Through.

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.

Sleeptalk Releases New Indie Album

Sleeptalk: Track-by-track

Sleeptalk is the type of band that sounds as if it came straight out of an Indie film. Soft, filled with an upbeat yet gentle sound, and almost iconic in nature. Their newest album, by the same name, starts off with a short intro, also entitled “Sleeptalk”. The silky beat almost makes listeners feel as if they’re floating. The blend of far-away sounding voices with a slow-moving beat makes for a great opener for the album.

Dead Cross’s Self-Titled Debut is What You Need Right Now…

Listen….

Who the fuck cares that Mike Patton is the most versatile vocalist in America? Any time he attaches his name to a project it might as well be smacked with diamonds. Whether it is vocal maneuvers with Bjork, his foray into pop music with Peeping Tom, or the stellar vocal duties on Faith No More’s cover of “Easy”, he is enigmatic and hard to ignore. One of my favorite projects of his is the avant-garde, noise-fuck of Fantomas with Melvins King Buzzo, and the ever-underrated drummer Dave Lombardo. Slayer, Faith No More, Suicidal Tendencies, Misfits, Fantomas, The Locust, and all other projects aside, Dead Cross might be the sexiest of the bunch.
