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.

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!

Waterparks Announce New Album, “Greatest Hits” Due Out May 21

Waterparks are hellbent on never making the same record twice and for that we are forever grateful. Awsten, Geoff, and Otto just dropped a brand new track, “Snow Globe” along with an announcement for their next record, “Greatest Hits” due out May 21st via 300 Entertainment.

“Snow Globe” is a glittery, techno-atmospheric tinged departure from the traditional “pop punk” sound but signifies the band’s growth as artists. Waterparks’ appeal to fans is their blatant disregard for rules, easily flitting between rock, hip-hop, pop perfection, electronica, and beyond.

The announcements don’t stop there. The band dropped a trippy new music video for “Snow Globe,” too! Watch the video below.

Pale Waves Release “You Don’t Own Me”

Pale Waves are proving they can’t be boxed in by anyone with their latest guitar laden, angsty single, “You Don’t Own Me.”

When asked about the new single, lead singer, Heather Baron-Gracie says, “‘You Don’t Own Me’ is a song for women about what it’s like to be a woman in this world. How society depicts, judges, and criticizes women on a daily basis. This song is incredibly important to me and I wanted to represent my own experiences. I also wanted to say a f*ck you to everyone that plays by these fake, delusional rules that say women and gender need to fit inside a specific box.”

Pale Waves’ sophomore album, “Who Am I?” is due out February 12th via Dirty Hit, ushering in a more guitar driven and straight to the point pop rock era for the band. The band are creating a confident and safe space for people to be themselves by tapping into Heather reflecting her own life experiences, facing mental health head on, and opening up about her sexuality with a newfound optimism and clarity.

Comprised of lead singer Heather Baron-Gracie (she/her), drummer Ciara Doran (they/them), guitarist Huge Silvani (he/him), and bassist Charlie Wood (he/him), Pale Waves haven’t been a secret for too long. Bursting on the scene with their debut record, “My Mind Makes Noises” in 2018, they were soon performing at Reading and Leeds, touring with the 1975, as well as Muse and The Cure, and racking up over 70 million streams on the debut record alone.

The new album acts as Pale Waves’ manifesto – inspiring inclusion, promoting self-discovery, and just be whoever the hell you want to be!

Listen to “You Don’t Own Me” below!

Pre-order a copy of the new album “Who Am I?” on the Dirty Hit webstore or on your favorite streaming platform now.

Artist To Watch: SZNS

Girl groups are back and we LOVE TO SEE IT! SZNS are bringing girl power to the front with their brand new single, “Behave.” Made up of four friends, Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn blend their unique vocals creating a fresh, new take on the classic 90s girl group sound.

SZNS new single, “Behave,” features the group’s conversational lyricism and wit, setting them apart from the crowd. When asked about the new single, the girls agreed “Behave is for every girl who’s been told to act like a lady: to sit up straight, be polite, to let the grown ups talk. Our entire lives we’ve been told that we’re ‘doing too much’ or acting ‘too intense’ – Behave is about being unapologetic, and taking up the space you deserve, despite what anyone else might say. If being demure and soft-spoken is good behavior, then I guess we never learned how to behave”.

Listen to “Behave” below!

SZNS expect to have an EP for each season, highlighting their wit, emanating power, and vulnerability, with tracks ranging from dance dropping beats to sultry ballads.

Kid Quill Premieres New single “90s Kids”

Kid Quill is back and launching 2021 with a bang with his new track, “90s kids.”  It’s the first new music he’s released in a while and we’re thrilled to have a new jam to blast.

“Too pop for the rap kids, too rap for the pop kids” is how the track opens, but we think Kid Quill has figured out the perfect balance between pop and rap.  We love his fun style and clever lyrics and can’t wait for even more new music from him this year.  Hope we’ll get to see him (virtually) perform again too.

Hunter Hayes Drops New single & Video For “The One That Got Away”

Hunter Hayes is back with a brand new song and video for his latest single, “The One That Got Away” and we can’t be more stoked on it!   The track is the first song from his upcoming album “Red Sky (Part II)” due out later this year.  The new album is the companion to last year’s “Wild Blue (Part I).”  “Wild Blue” was one of our favorite albums of 2019, expressing all of the emotions related to going through a breakup or a difficult time in your life.

If the first single is any indication, “Red Sky” seems like it will focus more on the themes of freedom and moving on to a better situation.  Which is what we’re all hoping 2021 will bring!  “The One That Got Away” is a massive pop banger, a slight deviation from his heavy country sound and it will definitely get you dancing.

After Hunter’s out of this world run on “The Masked Singer,” he’s ready to be even more honest in his music.  We can’t wait to hear the rest of Hunter’s new album, and fingers crossed we’ll get a virtual concert from him again soon!  We’ve missed seeing him on stage so much, he’s one of our favorite performers as he truly gives each song a new life when performed live.
