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.”

Neverkept Release Debut Single – “Vertigo”

Formerly known as Count To Four, the band are rebranding with a brand new singer (Broadside guitarist Dorian Cooke) and a new name!  Neverkept are here to stay despite the notion of the name.  They have a reputation as being one of the hardest working unsigned underground DIY bands and they intend to keep that momentum!  The new name comes from the personal convictions of the band’s members as well as the music touching on the notion of realizing lost hope and acknowledging that possibility of “what if.”

Neverkept recently dropped their debut single since the name and lineup change called “Vertigo.”  The new track is a tour de force wrapped up with pure renewed energy. Watch the official music video below!

Grab a copy of “Vertigo” on iTunes or Amazon or stream the single on Spotify.

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!
