Jake Miller Drops Pop Punk Single, “I Forgot About You”

Chhoo-choo! The pop punk train is rolling and Jake Miller is hopping aboard. He just dropped a brand new single, “I Forgot About You” that’s packed with catchy hooks and a huge sing along chorus!

We love this side of Jake and he’s proving that he’s more than a one trick pony. He has seamlessly floated between rap, pop, mellow guitar driven rock, and now he’s cranking the energy up with a pop punk sound.

When asked about the new single, Jake shares, “My new single ‘I Forgot About You’ was so much fun to make. I’ve always wanted to incorporate pop punk into my music, with real electric guitars and real drums. I grew up listening to bands like The Almost, The Starting Line, Blink 182, and Boys Like Girls. I think this song is the perfect mixture of my classic pop sound with a bunch of the bands I grew up on.”

Jake Miller is also embarking on a 33 date nationwide tour with our good buds, Fly By Midnight! The “hi, i missed u” tour kicks off in Phoenix, AZ, hitting major markets like NYC, Chicago, LA, and everywhere in between.

Kim Petras Signs with Republic Records, Releases New Single “Future Starts Now”

Kim Petras has taken the world by storm as an independent artist with her fierce attitude, impossibly catchy music including her single “I Don’t Want It All” that hit #1 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 playlist, and sold out tours across North America and Europe. Now the superstar has signed with Republic Records to release her brand new single, “Future Starts Now,” kicking off a brand new era.

Kim’s been teasing the new single with fun, Paris inspired images and videos in homage to a city where she’s always found happiness. Sonically, “Future Starts Now” is heavily inspired by the 80’s European house music Kim would hear on family trips to Paris as a child.

When asked about the new single, Kim said “I felt so anxious at the start of lockdown, because for me the most anxiety-inducing thing is not being able to work and do what I love, “Future Starts Now” came from trying to stay present, instead of stressing about the future and all the lost time.”

Listen to “Future Starts Now” on Spotify!

Album Preview: We Were Sharks – “New Low”

We first met We Were Sharks several years ago and now they’re back with an epic new record, “New Low,” due out May 21st via Revival Recordings.

The record comes out of the gate swinging with the massive track, “Shameless” with a giant “F*CK YOU” inspired by co-writer and Silverstein guitarist, Paul Marc Rousseau’s in-studio admission of faking happiness while being absolutely miserable.

When asked about the new album, lead vocalist Randy Frobel shares, “‘New Low’ is a collection of songs that focuses on being down but not out. Since the release of ‘Lost Touch,’ we’ve experienced many of life’s ups and downs. We’ve lost relationships, friends, and family, and have gone through a lot of unexpected challenges that life has a tendency to throw at you when you least expect it. However, no matter what may have tried to keep us down or hold us back, we always take it and keep pushing forward.”

The record is full of massive sing along choruses and mosh pit starters liken “Bring Me Down,” and “Omens,” alongside pop punk ballads like “Burning House,” which reminisces on an old flame that’s swallowed up your entire world and left it in ashes.

The latest single ahead of the album release, “Over This,” will have fans screaming along and hitting replay immediately. About the track, guitarist Jason Mooney said: “A lot of songs tell stories, but when we talked about what ‘Over This’ was going to be about we decided to talk about a feeling or a vibe rather than go the narrative route. We wanted to talk about a feeling you have when you find yourself in a place in life where you should be filled with joy, happiness, pride, and essentially every positive feeling imaginable. Instead you feel lost with no sense of enthusiasm. Although you should appreciate the moments, you feel like you would rather be doing absolutely anything else and be anywhere else than where you are right now.”

We Were Sharks also wrote a lamenting follow up to the blisteringly fast “Ashley” from the last record, aptly titled “Ashley (Part 2).” Just as fast but a little bit longer, “Ashley (Part 2)” clocks in at one minute and 58 seconds but still captures the feelings of young love lost due to growing up. “The original ‘Ashley’ was a fun, fast song we’d had kicking around for years, but we hesitated to put it out because putting out a 70-second song is a death sentence,” said guitarist Colin Jacques.

The Canucks are proving they can’t be pigeonholed with their latest record and we can’t wait for shows to return to see how these translate to a live audience.

Watch the official video for “Over This” below!

Pre-save “New Low” on your favorite streaming platform or pick up a pre-order bundle from We Were Sharks’ official site and get exclusive merch, vinyl variants, and more!

Willow Smith Releases “T R A N S P A R E N T S O U L” Ft. TRavis Barker

Willow Smith has always been a cultural icon but she’s got her sights set on making her mark in pop punk with her latest single, “T R A N S P A R E N T S O U L” with a little help from the man himself, Travis Barker.

The track floats along a fine line of “being too soft/ not punk enough” but Willow slams her foot down, shaking up the scene. It would be easy to confuse the track for an early Paramore b-side but make no mistake, Willow knows the history and she’s forging her own path through the pop punk sea. This is the first single from Willow’s forthcoming album, due out this Summer.

The glitchy Dana Trippe-directed visualizer for the single evokes 90s – TLC fashion and we are so here for it!! Watch the official visualizer below.
