MKTO Return With New Single “How Can I Forget”

Malcom Kelley and Tony Oller aka MKTO are back and they’re better than ever!  The two best friends return after a two year hiatus right where they left off with a brand new single called “How Can I Forget.”  They teamed up with longtime collaborators and co-writers Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou [Selena Gomez, Ne-Yo] and Evan “Kidd” Bogart[Beyonce, Rihanna] and promise that more new music is on the way soon!  “How Can I Forget” brings their classic R&B charisma, finger snaps, and a bright guitar riff marking a new chapter for MKTO.

When asked about the timing, “The timing was just right,” says Malcolm. “This was the moment. We had the records ready. We wanted to deliver for the fans who had been waiting.”  Tony said, “We’re both just so humbled and thankful to the people who have supported our music. It’s only that sort of support that allows us to get back out there. There’s an energy between us that we never found anywhere else. We’re so excited to be back.”

Album Preview: Like Pacific – “In Spite Of Me”

Canada is churning out some of the best pop punk that we’ve probably ever heard.  Like Pacific are gearing up to drop their sophomore album “In Spite Of Me” on July 27th via Pure Noise Records.  When asked about the new record, singer Jordan Black said “When we wrote Distant Like You Asked, I felt super proud of writing an entire full length album but was very nervous. In Spite of Me means more to me than anything I’ve ever done creatively. We worked super hard writing and recording this album. The hardest I’ve ever personally worked.”

The new album has 10 brand new tracks including “Sedatives,” “Had It Coming,” and the title track “In Spite Of Me” which all showcase the high octane, in your face whether you like it or not energy of the new album.   “In Spite Of Me” is a natural progression both lyrically and musically for one of the hardest working pop punk bands in the scene today.

Jack & Jack Release Acoustic Duet with Olivia O’Brien

Jack & Jack just dropped an acoustic duet for their smash hit single “Beg”  featuring former tourmate Olivia O’Brien. The original track, written by Lauv, has nearly 1 million Youtube/VEVO plays and over 15 million global streams to date. That’s a huge accomplishment given Jack&Jack only released their major label debut EP, “GONE” a year ago!

“Beg” marks the first single for Jack Johnson and Jack Gilinsky to hit Top 40 radio and caught the attention of Z100’s Elvis Duran.  Elvis recently featured Jack&Jack on the TODAY Show as his “Artist Of The Month” for January 2018.

Watch the brand new video for the acoustic version of “Beg” now.

Fly By Midnight Release “The Boombox Series” EP

Fly By Midnight have been putting in the hours and 2018 is shaping up to be a HUGE year for these guys!  The guys just won Firefly’s “Big Break Artist of 2018” contest and get the once in a lifetime opportunity to perform at Firefly Festival in Delaware this May!  Wanting to revive the most classic “guilty pleasure” tracks and the biggest female driven anthems from the early 2000s,  Justin Bryte and Slavo just released a brand new mini EP to kick start the new year with some throwback vibes.

“The Boombox Series” mini EP is a small taste of Fly By Midnight’s wide musical influences.  The first song they dropped was an infectious cover of Michelle Branch’s “Everywhere” which was literally everywhere when it first came out, and still follows us!   The second track was Rihanna’s “Umbrella” which is such an iconic song that we still whisper sing it to ourselves every time it rains.

Today, FBM share the final track from their mini EP, “Complicated” by Avril Lavigne. JBryte and Slavo put their own twist on the power pop punk track with their distinct layered vocals making this a fun synthy remix that even the most secret fangirl wouldn’t be ashamed to admit they love!

Check out the fun video for their cover of “Complicated” below!
