For The Win To Release “Heavy Thoughts” Album on 4/14

For The Win have been keeping busy in 2017 so far and they’re ready to kick it into high gear!  The guys just announced that they will be releasing their brand new album, “Heavy Thoughts” through Artery Recordings on April 14th.  The band’s second single off of their highly anticipated second album, “Dancing Shoes” comes out of the gate at a blistering pace and hits the listener a little harder than the last single, “Crash and Burn.”

Kyle Christensen says “‘Dancing Shoes’ is the heaviest song we’ve written as a band so far, instrumentally and lyrically. This song reflects a lot on how cutthroat the world can be, and how so many people are out for themselves. I felt like I was losing touch with my own self confidence and let too many opinions get to me and my drive. As you grow older you realize how naive you can be to others and their ulterior motives.”

Watch the official video for “Dancing Shoes” below.

For The Win are the special guest on Alesana’s “Ten Frail Years Of Vanity and Wax” Tour this Winter.  Check out the dates below!

Artist To Watch: For The Win

Pop punk is alive and well!  We got worried for a little bit but the new era of bands like State Champs, Waterparks, Seaway, and Broadside definitely know what they’re doing!

With an impressive touring resume featuring A Loss For Words, Capsize, and Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, as well as a debut album under their belts, San Diego quintet For The Win are ready to take over your speakers!  The band just debuted their new single “Crash and Burn” ahead of their album release in March of 2017.

For The Win consists of Kyle Christensen, Matt Jiminez, Lee Chambers, Giovanni Suarez, and Omar Nieto, and these guys have delivered a hook heavy and thoughtful lesson in karma.  The band adds “The song is about what goes around comes around, and not to wish negativity on anyone, but that karma definitely comes around in its own way.”

Watch the official video for “Crash And Burn” below and request the new single on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation station.

Watch Thomas Rhett’s “Crash And Burn” Video!

Thomas Rhett just released the music video for his funky new single “Crash and Burn.”  The video shows Thomas trying to win back a girl, who somehow isn’t impressed by his sweet car, jacket and dance moves, or by him standing outside her window with a boombox in the rain – “Say Anything”-style.  We love the contrast between the songs lyrics and its upbeat tempo. You can’t help but dance along – even poor, heartbroken music video Thomas can’t help but smile!  Watch the video below.
