San Francisco's Worth Taking are self-releasing their sophomore album, Hangman, next Friday, February 12th. We're debuting their new single, "Make This Right" in the replies. Influenced by the likes of Blink-182, Jimmy Eat World and Foo Fighters, the group has been aptly described as “punk enough for you, but still pop enough for your mom." If you like what you can hear, you can pre-order the digital album for just $3.49 on Bandcamp. You might want to grab a free download of their covers EP while you're there.
BeAware was launched in 2012 as the solo project of Montville, NJ musician/producer Michael Lisa. Head to the replies to listen to his new single, "Red," which will appear on the upcoming EP, Another Piece of Cake, due out in February. The mash-up of indie rock, pop and electronic influences may appeal to fans of MGMT, Foster the People or Twenty One Pilots.
The Red Summer Sun only formed in August, but they've wasted no time writing catchy songs and hitting the studio to record their debut EP, Room to Grow. Head to the replies to stream the pop-punk quartet's first single, "From Here." Based out of Burlington, VT and Plattsburgh, NY, the group is recommended if you like Mayday Parade, The Dangerous Summer and All Time Low.
Tuesday, I posted about Sucko (Ethan Oliva of Barlow) streaming "I Am a Scientist" in anticipation of his 52-track Guided By Voices tribute album, American Superdream. Today, you can stream another song from the compilation, "The Official Ironmen Rally Song," in the replies.
Ethan Oliva of Absolute 100 artist Barlow will be releasing a Guided By Voices tribute album titled American Superdream on November 20th under the name Sucko. The compilation will contain 52 tracks. You can stream his cover of "I Am a Scientist" in the replies.
We're debuting The Escape's new music video for "Soon Forgotten" in the replies. It comes from the Philadelphia rockers' forthcoming EP, The Mark We Leave Behind, which was produced by Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, mewithoutYou) and will be self-released on July 28th. With a hard-hitting but catchy blend of pop-rock and alternative, the band should appeal to fans of Rise Against, Anberlin and Foo Fighters.
Makari have announced pre-orders for their upcoming EP, Ghost Stories. When you pre-order, you will immediately receive "Paper Ghosts". I think this band is really going to do something special soon, make sure and keep a close watch on them.
