The Faim Release New Single “Summer Is A Curse”

Just in time for Summer, Australia’s latest export, The Faim, dropped a brand new track called “Summer Is A Curse.”  Co-written by Ashton Irwin from 5SOS, the new track is a sweeping emotional hit. When asked about the new song, “‘Summer Is a Curse’ is about taking the leap into a make or break situation that could grow into the beginning of a new era, or cause the end of what could’ve been. It’s about the paths that we take, the dreams that we have, and the things we leave behind to reach them.”

This is just the beginning for The Faim.  They’ve teamed up with Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy, TwentyOne Pilots’ Josh Dun, as well as legendary producer John Feldmann for their highly anticipated album!

The Faim just announced a string of tour dates with PVRIS in Australia in addition to dates with PVMNTS and The Dangerous Summer.  Check out the tour dates below and grab your tickets HERE before they sell out!

5SOS Release New Single “Want You Back” & Announce Tour

Our Aussie boys have been teasing us for the past week they finally spilled the beans!  5SOS just dropped a brand new song called “Want You Back,” making this their first song in almost two years.  Since they’ve been gone, Ashton, Calum, Luke, and Michael took some time to regroup and figure out what life is outside of being on tour.  It did them well because this song is UUHH–MAAZIINGG!!!!   We can’t wait for everything they’ve got in store for 2018 and where the year will take them.

5SOS Sell Out Madison Square Garden on “Sounds Live, Feels Live” World Tour

We can officially say “5SOS sold out MSG!!!”  That’s a feat of epic proportions, especially for a band that hasn’t been around that long.  It’s hard to believe that just two short years ago the guys were headlining the nearby Best Buy Theater, which holds about 2,000 people.  Luke, Ashton, Calum, and Michael played every song we could have asked for on this tour and you could hear the entire arena singing every word!

The band played their new single, “Girls Talk Boys,” for the first time live at MSG.  The track had just dropped the day of the show, but fans already knew all of the words and kept singing like they had been all night.  The performance of the funky song saw lead singer Luke Hemmings jump on the piano for a bit – cue the swoons.

Drummer Ashton took the time to remind the crowd to always follow their dreams, saying he went from playing in his garage to playing in the legendary Madison Square Garden.  He also said the crowd was the loudest he’d ever heard, despite having played many other shows.

Before going into the first verse of “Jet Black Heart” solo, Michael soaked up the applause from the crowd.  Just when you thought he was going to keep going, the crowd just got louder and louder.  It was one of the most energetic crowds we’ve ever seen at MSG (or anywhere for that matter!)  We’re so proud of how far 5SOS have come so far and can’t wait for what’s next!

Setlist:
Carry On
Hey Everybody
Money
Voodoo Doll
Don’t Stop
Disconnected
Long Way Home
Outer Space
Waste The Night
Vapor
Amnesia

5SOS Release New Song,”Girls Talk Boys”

Our favorite Australian pop punk boys just released a brand new track from the Ghostbusters movie called “Girls Talk Boys” and it’s funky!! These guys know how to rock and definitely how to roll with the new track.  Luke, Ashton, Calum, and Michael are so good, this song is totally different from everything on their new album, “Sounds Good, Feels Good” but it will have you dancing and grooving the whole time.

Listen to “Girls Talk Boys” below.



The guys are in the middle of their huge “Sounds Live, Feels Live” World Tour so be sure to grab tickets while you still can! Check out all of the dates here.

The Friday Five: Internet Dogs

Let’s be real.  The best thing about the internet is when people share photos and videos of their pets.  We love that having an insta-famous dog is now an actual profession.  Here are some of our favorite dogs to follow on social media!

1. Daily Dougie – @dailydougie
Dougie is SO CUTE!  And good at internet.  We had a really hard time deciding what to post for him, just do yourself a favor and go through his entire Instagram feed.

Bossy. #fridaymomentofzen

2. Marnie The Dog – @marniethedog
Marnie goes to more concerts than we do (and that’s saying a lot!)  She has lots of famous friends and even had a book come out last year!

3. Hamilton Pug – @hamiltonpug
Hamilton hangs out with all of the cool internet dogs.  Talk about #squadgoals

4. Itty Bitty the Griff – @ittystagram
Itty is ready for any Holiday.

5. Gary Fisher – @garyfisher
His mom, Carrie Fisher, brings Gary everywhere.

Our Favorite Concerts of 2015

At the beginning of 2015, we decided to keep an official tally of all the shows we went to this year.  That lasted until about February, when we totally lost count.  Here are some of our favorite shows from this past year!

Thomas Rhett – The Paramount – Huntington, NY – February 2015
Thomas knows how to put on a show and gets the audience dancing to every song.  This was one of those shows where everyone knew something special was happening – TR had just had his fourth #1 single from his debut with “Makes Me Wanna,”  setting the tone for the “Tangled Up” era.  We’re glad he found his way into music because we can’t imagine him NOT shaking his south side on stage!

P1150320
Hunter Hayes – Ike Hall – West Point, NY – October 2015
We will travel almost anywhere for Hunter Hayes and he ALWAYS makes it worth it.  This was probably one of the craziest shows we went to in 2015 – the cadets were crowd surfing!  Something we never thought we’d see at a Hunter Hayes show.

P1360266

Sam Hunt – Irving Plaza – New York, NY – February 2015
They say you never forget your first headlining tour and Sam Hunt’s sold out in a flash but for those lucky enough to score tickets to the “Lipstick Graffiti Tour,” you know that this tour was a non-stop singalong from start to finish.

P1140505
The Main Event Tour (NKOTB, TLC, Nelly) – Various Venues – June 2015
How can you go to a NKOTB show just once?  We have no idea because we went to this tour three nights in a row and we still wanted more!  This photo is everything you need to know about this tour.

P1230797

Shania Twain – Madison Square Garden – New York, NY – June 2015
Shania doesn’t tour often and she announced in advance that this would be her last ever tour (we hope she changes her mind!)  At least Shania went out with a bang!  The “Rock This Country Tour” was full of Shania’s hits and cool sets that brought her closer to all of her fans.

P1250950

Wheels Up Tour (Sam Hunt, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum) – Various Venues – Summer 2015
A lineup so good we had to go not once, not twice, but four times, in three states.  It was totally worth it every single time!

sam hunt %22out in it%22 2
Dan + Shay – Emporium – Patchogue, NY – October 2015
We can’t say enough good things about Dan+Shay.   They are incredible live – they bring so much energy to the show, night after night.  Their set mixes their album with classic rock, pop, and even a rendition of Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love To You.”  And Shay’s voice + Dan’s harmonies = CHILLS.

P1340624

Nathan Sykes – Gramercy Theatre – New York, NY – July 2015
Nathan is extremely talented – he mentioned he was feeling under the weather at this show, but we never would have known because his voice is INSANE!

Nathan Sykes
DNCE – Knitting Factory – Brooklyn, NY – October 2015
If you’ve heard DNCE’s explosive debut EP, “SWAAY”, then you can imagine how much fun Joe, JinJoo, Cole, and Jack have every night on stage.  Their intimate album release show was a great intro to their new music.

P1360001
5SOS – Nikon Jones Beach Theatre – Wantagh, NY – September 2015
Calum, Ashton, Mikey, and Luke have translated their pop punk show to the big stage and this was easily one of our favorite shows this year, and it was at our favorite summer venue! They had cool graphics, a moving stage, and the catchiest riffs that got the ENTIRE crowd singing along.  10/10 – we would totally would have gone every night if we could have!!

Old Dominion – Bowery Electric – New York, NY – October 2015
After a summer of stadium shows, Old Dominion played an intimate pop up show at one of the smallest venues in NYC for their biggest fans. These guys released one of our favorite albums of 2015 and their show, stadium or tiny club, is insanely fun!  Every song is a JAM!!
