The Long Island native posted a spoken word snippet from “Headmaster Stormzy” on his Instagram welcoming everyone back to school and set the music world on fire again.

Album Preview: Bearings – “Blue In The Dark”

Ottowa based pop punk band Bearings have had an incredible year and they’re getting ready to skyrocket their blend of bouncey emo rock into the stratosphere with their eagerly awaited debut full-length album Blue In The Dark due out October 12th on Pure Noise Records.  Since releasing the “Nothing Here Is Permanent” EP in September 2017, the quartet have quickly become one of the most buzzworthy bands in the underground pop punk scene.

Bearings’ debut album will hook you from the first song and have you singing along the entire time.  In an era where too many bands have resorted to a shorter record format with too much filler, Bearings are bringing back the “all killer, no filler” approach.

Each song on Blue In The Dark propels the record ahead and lyrically tugs on your heartstrings.  “Beautiful Places” tackles the feeling of not being enough, whatever that means to you, while “Stuck In A Doorframe” chugs along from the first note and is easily one of our favorites on the record.  Other stand out tracks on the records include the 90’s Alt Rock infused “Careless Clarity,” the dreamy, steel string acoustic “Tide,” and blissfully happy “Eyes Closed.”

Watch the brand new video for “Aforementioned” below.

Pale Waves Release Debut Album “My Mind Makes Noises”

Manchester outfit Pale Waves just dropped their debut album “My Mind Makes Noises” to rave reviews and ushers in a brand new era of dark synth.  Pale Waves have proven that they have the ability to masterfully blend silvery synths and polished pop hooks into their own new vintage style.

Each track on this exceptional debut album is unique in its own right.  Lyrically, this album touches on everything from love and loss, to feeling so insecure about yourself and wondering if you’ll ever be loved by anyone again.  Pale Waves crafted an album that will stand the test of time and certainly passed our “drive fast down the highway with all the windows down and the radio up” test.

Pale Waves are coming back to North American this Fall with tons of headlining dates across the US.  Tickets are on sale now!  Check out all of the dates below.

Album Preview: Like Pacific – “In Spite Of Me”

Canada is churning out some of the best pop punk that we’ve probably ever heard.  Like Pacific are gearing up to drop their sophomore album “In Spite Of Me” on July 27th via Pure Noise Records.  When asked about the new record, singer Jordan Black said “When we wrote Distant Like You Asked, I felt super proud of writing an entire full length album but was very nervous. In Spite of Me means more to me than anything I’ve ever done creatively. We worked super hard writing and recording this album. The hardest I’ve ever personally worked.”

The new album has 10 brand new tracks including “Sedatives,” “Had It Coming,” and the title track “In Spite Of Me” which all showcase the high octane, in your face whether you like it or not energy of the new album.   “In Spite Of Me” is a natural progression both lyrically and musically for one of the hardest working pop punk bands in the scene today.

Watch the brand new video for “Self Defeated” below!

YUNGBLUD Releases Debut Album “21st Century Liability”

Dominic Harrison, professionally known as YUNGBLUD is coming out of the gates swinging with infectious poppy melodies and hip hop beats contrasting with dark angsty lyrics on his first full length album.  He’s had major success with tracks like “I Love You, Will Ya Marry Me” which documents the tragic love story of a man who proposed to his girlfriend with graffiti on Sheffield’s Park Hill bridge.  YUNGBLUD also has two tracks, “Falling Skies” and “Tin Pan Boy” featured on the 13 Reasons Why: Season 2 soundtrack.

With a debut album just released through Locomotion/Geffen Records, massive crowds at the final cross country 2018 Vans Warped Tour, and word of mouth praise from every corner of the globe, YUNGBLUD is destined to be a star with a great career on the very near horizon.

While the album has radio friendly bouncey pop tracks like “Die For The Hype,” YUNGBLUD’s wide range of influences are apparent through the entire album with few tracks sounding the same.  He uses this to his advantage and created his own brand of genre bending tracks including the album title track, “21st Century Liability” which draws influence from early 90s hip hop drum loops, crunchy grunge rock guitars, and enough angst to power a whole city.

YUNGBLUD just dropped a music video for his latest single, “Medication” directed by Adam Powell and takes a wild medicated trip.  Watch the video below!

If you missed YUNGBLUD playing Vans Warped Tour, you have another chance!  He’ll be hopping back on Warped Tour from July 26th – 31st.  He’s also hitting a whole bunch of cities for the “21st Century Liability Tour” throughout the US including a stop in NYC.  Check out all of the dates HERE!

Grab a copy of “21st century liability” on iTunes and Amazon or stream it on Spotify!

Album Preview: Homesafe – “One”

Homesafe are Pure Noise Records’ latest hot ticket band to watch in 2018.  You probably caught them when they opened for Free Throw or Boston Manor this past Spring or on Slam Dunk this past May but Homesafe are breaking out on their own. Hailing from the suburbs of Chicago and comprised of Ryan Rumchaks (bassist, Knuckle Puck), Tyler Albertson, Emanuel Duran, and Joe Colseby, Homesafe are dropping their new full length album, “One,” on June 29th through Pure Noise Records.

Every song on this album is a banger drawing inspiration from their 90s forefathers while managing to keep their sound fresh and relevant.  You’ll want to blast this record as loud as you possibly can while racing down the highway with all the windows down.  It’s THAT good!
The first singles, “Stay Away,” “Vanilla-Scented Laser Beams,” and “Run” are early indicators of just how good this band is.  Homesafe are bringing back the fuzzy grunge sounds made famous by Queens Of The Stone Age and Foo Fighters, “One” is an album of epic proportions.
Stand out tracks like  “Say Something” and “Time Ain’t Free” are driving forces on the album bringing us to the album closer, “fin.”  This is one of the best, if not the best album closers we have ever heard. “fin” is a bittersweet instrumental piano track.  This is one of the best, if  not the best album closers we have heard in a very very long time.
Watch the official video for “Stay Away” below.

Pre-order your copy of “One” on iTunes and Amazon!
