Artist To Watch: Arrested Youth

Arrested Youth is inspiring anyone and everyone who is fed up with the rat race to ditch it and live life on your own terms!

Ian Johnson, better known as Arrested Youth, started writing music when he was 15, heavily influenced equally by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kid Cudi and dropped a series of mixtapes as well as a debut EP that climbed into the iTunes Top 25 Pop charts.

With success comes strong discouragement and eventually he took a break from music. He also knows a thing or two about the rat race.  Johnson graduated in 2016 with a triple major in business from Indiana University and landed a coveted job in Anheuser-Busch’s’ Global Management Program. Within eight months, he was offered a promotion and a raise – but the position also required 60+ hour workweeks.  He turned it all down to pursue music full time once more.

“Working in corporate America was a struggle,” shares Johnson. “I found myself waking up every day feeling like a prisoner. I started writing music again as an outlet to express my frustrations.”

Since re-entering the music world full time, Arrested Youth is back to inspiring anyone who’s willing to listen.  In 2017, he released “My Friends Are Robots,” an ode to the lack of self expression he experienced while working in corporate America, and “A Painting In Paris” which touches on the vanity of his generation.

Arrested Youth’s debut LP “FEAR” dropped in September 2018 with the lead single “Mirrors,” epitomizing the theme of the album. “The album reflects our state of mind, growing up in a world controlled by social media, the press, mental illness, violence, and extreme uncertainty,” shares Johnson. “We need to look within ourselves to understand who we’ve become as a society. Only then can we change the ill fate of mankind.”

Watch the tour video for “Mirrors” below!

Currently, Arrested Youth is criss-crossing North America with YUNGBLUD’s  21st Century Liability Tour.  The tour hits Brooklyn later this week for a sold out show at Baby’s All Right!  Check out all of the tour dates here.

Grab a copy of “FEAR” on iTunes and Amazon or stream the album on Spotify now!

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.
