I’m one of the folks who loved Atreyu back in the day, but I fell out of touch with them after The Curse. Well, when the band made a comeback and released their latest album Long Live, I decided to check it out and I am proud to say that I loved the album. It’s a strong collection of tracks that has a little new and a little old Atreyu. Well, one of the slower songs on the album “Do You Know Who You Are?” now has an accompanying music video and it’s pretty cool. Check out the video below. Continue reading
Funeral For A Friend are a band that I have enjoyed for a long time now. I always found their music fun and now I have to say goodbye. It hasn’t been too long since I said goodbye to Alexisonfire and today Funeral For A Friend have called it quits. The band announced via their Facebook that “We’ve had many curveballs thrown at us over the last fifteen years, some we’ve managed to avoid and others that quite nearly derailed us but we’ve always said to each other that when it’s time for this to end then we end it on our own terms, no one else’s.”. This sucks, but no band lasts forever. After the jump you can read the bands full announcement. Continue reading

Titled “Love”, the track tangles together angular melodies, kinetic chord progressions and scathing, emotionally-charged vocals in one explosive package. Experience it for yourself after the break.
Self-Portrait will be released on October 2 via Deathwish, Inc.
Those of us who still worship at the altar of post-hardcore and screamo, there is a soft spot in our heart reserved for bands like Silverstein. The band has released fantastic music in the past and they’re new album isn’t half bad either. The album, titled I Am Alive In Everything I Touch is currently streaming in full and it’s definitely worth you’re time. I mean, it’s Silverstein. Continue reading

Youth Funeral have premiered a new track from their forthcoming EP, See You When I See You, over at Noisey.

We all know that From First To Last have made an epic comeback and that they have added Spencer Sotelo (Periphery) to their ranks. We also know that they sound great without Skrillex.

To go along with the announcement, the band has unloaded a rad new track titled “Dead Trees” which can be heard after the jump. Enjoy. Continue reading
I have loved Funeral For A Friend for years now and I can’t wait to hear the bands new record Chapter And Verse, but to tide me over, the band has released a music video for their song “Pencil Pusher.” The video was directed by Ryan Mackfall and it’s not only really well made, it’s really funny. This band does so much good, I don’t think they’ll let me down now. Continue reading

From First To Last died out a few years ago when vocalist Sonny went all Skrillex on us and we all wondered if anything would become of FFTL. And then Periphery front man Spencer Sotelo joined the band as their new vocalist. I’ve been very curious as to how the music would be now and how the vocals would fit in. Well, I think it’s pretty great. The band successfully crowdfunded their new album Dead Trees and they are now streaming the albums title track. Check out “Dead Trees” with the new and improved From First To Last after the jump. Continue reading
New Hampshire screamo outfit Youth Funeral have premiered a new track from their forthcoming EP, See You When I See You, over at Brooklyn Vegan. The new track, entitled “When It Pours”, is a two-minute kick in the teeth that is raw, rambunctious, emotionally charged and often technical at times. Check out the face-melting jam for yourself at this location.
See You When I See You will be released on January 27th via Twelve Gauge Records. The EP’s track listing can be seen after the break.
The recently renamed Code Orange have released a new track entitled “My World” off of their upcoming sophomore LP, I Am King, in conjunction with the opening of pre-orders for the record as well as announcements for an upcoming Fall tour with direct support from Los Angeles metallic hardcore act Twitching Tongues and indirect support from peers (Soul Search, War Hungry, Nails, Discourse, Axis and Blistered) whose appearances will vary by tour date. Aside from the trimming of denomination, the first two singles released for I Am King so far, the title track along with this most recent number, feature a similar change (in my opinion, for the better), narrowing down the band’s technical metalcore assault for a simpler approach that still retains the band’s experimental edge. Stream “My World” exclusively over at Alternative Press here, peep the poster and details for Code Orange’s upcoming tour below and pre-order I Am King via Deathwish Inc. here. Continue reading
We’ve already heard Boysetsfire cover Funeral For A Friend‘s “10:45 Amsterdam Conversations” and I have been sitting, waiting for FFAF‘s cover of “Rookie” by Boysetsfire. Well, just as I expected, it’s fantastic. It’s totally FFAF playing a Boysetsfire song in the style of BSF. It’s really phenomenal and I’ll happily listen to this split relentlessly for the rest of the year. Check out Funeral For A Friend‘s cover of “Rookie” below. Continue reading
