Artist To Watch: The Wrecks

The Wrecks are good.  Like, really good!  So good in fact, that they wrote and recorded their debut EP in just a few days.  The best decisions are usually made on a whim and almost always have a good story.

After hearing that a friend had access to a legit recording studio for a few days, the guys wrote the best songs they could in a short amount of time.  The Wrecks went in to track with zero budget, little studio knowledge, and a ton of borrowed time.  They weren’t allowed to be in the studio let alone track anything there!   When they heard the studio owner’s ex-wife was stopping by, the guys got outta dodge as fast as they could with what would become their debut EP on a hard drive in a backpack.

The Wrecks debut single “Favorite Liar” caught the traction on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation station and quickly landed the guys plenty of fans include Baltimore natives, All Time Low.  “We’re so stoked that All Time Low asked us to come out with them this summer,” said the band “and we’re looking forward to playing stages that size for the first time. We can’t wait to get back out on the road again, as we’ve been mostly cramped inside writing new material and working on our set for the past few months. It’s refreshing to see such a good mix of genres in thelineup, as well. We’re gonna bring it 110% every night and we’re confident the crowds will, too.”

We’re predicting big, big things for these guys and we can’t wait to see what the future holds!  Watch the official video for “Favorite Liar” below.

Artist To Watch: The Catching

Based in New Jersey, home of classic rock and emo kings galore, The Catching have been making a name for themselves from an early age. Consisting of four friends ranging in age from 18 to 20, singer Holden Glazer, guitarists Jake Farbman and Evan Hemwall, and drummer Drew Stevens, The Catching are ready to take over your Summer playlist!  After releasing their debut EP “Teenage Fiction Pt. 1” almost a year ago, these guys have been causing waves ever since.

The Catching recently teamed up with legendary song-writer/producer Matt Squire (All Time Low, Selena Gomez, Panic! At The Disco) for their next release due out later this year.  While we anxiously wait for the new EP, the guys shared a brand new video for their latest single “Do It All Again” off the upcoming project!  The new track centers around the ups and downs of a relationship and how they would make the same mistakes all over again.

Watch the video below and stay tuned for more new music from The Catching!

Drawing North Drop “Stay”

Drawing North officially dropped their new single “Stay” just in time for Summer!  The brand new track is a departure from their previous sound but we are hooked on the catchy pop sound these guys are bringing over from Australia.

The single is the first since the band released of their first album “El Dorado” last September.  The new music is more electronic but keeps the dance-y pop influenced sound fans have come to love from Drawing North.

Simple Plan Add Summer “NPNHJB” Tour Dates

Normally we aren’t fans of Mondays but we’ll let this one slide because Simple Plan announced more dates for their 15th Anniversary Tour of “No Pads No Helmets…Just Balls” Tour for the Summer!  They’re taking our friends in Patent Pending out with them for this Summer round of dates and we’re so excited to finally see PTPG’s dreams of touring with Simple Plan come true.

In case you haven’t heard of Patent Pending before, 5 years ago, the guys in PTPG wrote an open letter – song actually, to Simple Plan begging them to let them open for the Canadians on a tour or even just one show.  The guys got the chance just before the official start of the NPNHJB Tour in NYC back in March to open and they had such a blast!  The SP fans liked them too because everyone was dancing and waving their pirate hooks in the air during the guys’ set.  They even helped Corey win the Crowd Swimming Championships that night!  I think that counts as a huge success. SP thought so too because they’re taking the guys on tour officially!!

Check out the new Summer dates below and get your tickets when they go on sale on Friday, April 7th.
