Friday Five: New Artists To Watch

It’s been a while since we did a Friday Five but we’re bringing it back!! Each week, new music is released on Fridays and gets our weekend off to an awesome start. It’s hard to sift through all of the new tracks if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

Sometimes we let the Youtube shuffle do it’s thing and lead us in new places we never ventured before. Other times we take cues from our current favorite bands and see who they’re playing shows with or what they’re listening to.  This week, let us help you find your new favorite artist to elevate your weekend to the next level!  Check out our Friday Five New Artists To Watch!

Chase Atlantic – “Into It”  
Chase Atlantic just released their new video for “Into It” on Snapchat which is great because that’s where we spend most of our social media time anyway. Genius idea, awesome band, perfect song.

Citizen Four – “Testify” 
They sing in 4 part harmony, have luscious hair, cool boy style, and they dance. What more do you want in a boy band?! Watch C4’s lyric video for “Testify” and you’ll be a fan before it’s over.

James Maslow – “How I Like It”
Okay, so he’s not “NEW” but as a solo artist he is brand new! James Maslow, from BTR, just released his first solo album and it’s SO GOOD SO GOOD!!  “How I Like It” is the first single and that’s how we like it.

Seaway – “Slam” 
Whether you saw Seaway opening for Real Friends with Moose Blood or you’re catching them on the upcoming Simple Plan tour, these Canadians bring back everything we loved about late 90s/early 00s pop punk.  Every song from these guys gets us jumping and screaming “EVERYTHING IS COOL MAN!”

As It Is – “Hey Rachel” 
Patty Walters poured his heart and soul into the latest As It Is record and his raw honesty on the song “Hey Rachel” is showing us that it’s okay to be well…just, Okay. Even when you don’t think you’re fine, you’ll always have your family to lean on.

As It Is Announce USA Headline Tour

Patty Walters and the As It Is boys just dropped their emotionally charged second album “okay.” and personal video for “Hey Rachel” but these guys can’t sit still for too long.  They just announced a huge headlining Spring tour for the USA kicking off this April in New Jersey!

They’ve tapped ROAM and Grayscale as openers and we’ll bet this is going to be a real good time from start to finish.  Tickets go on sale Friday February 10th at 10am local time so be sure to grab yours before they’re gone!  Check out all the tour dates below.
