On October 22nd, Cleveland's Signals Midwest will release one of my favorite punk albums of 2013 - the stellar Light On The Lake. But before that happens, we are premiering a new song (and one of my favorites from the LP) today titled "San Anselmo" in the replies. Intricate guitar riffs are woven into the fist-pumping nature of the song, as it is a song that'll make you turn the volume up to 11. After you fall in love with this song, make sure to pre-order the record from Tiny Engines and/or pick up a digital download for $5 from Bandcamp.
Drew Beringer on 09/30/13 - 10:56 AM
Its Teeth began as a solo project for former Drop Dead, Gorgeous guitarist Jacob Belcher. For his latest effort, Divided, Belcher enlisted the help of his friend and former Periphery drummer, Travis Orbin. Although both men are known for heavier works, Its Teeth is an experimental, instrumental project best described as ambient post-rock. Check out a new song, "TDB," in the replies to hear it for yourself. You can pre-order the EP on Bandcamp.
Alex DiVincenzo on 09/30/13 - 08:58 AM

You can hear the first track, "Confluence," in the replies. Clocking in at nearly 8 minutes, the song is heavy, brooding and sludgy. Embracing elements of both post-metal and hardcore, Pray for Teeth are like a cross between Isis and Converge.
Alex DiVincenzo on 09/26/13 - 10:39 AM

Christian Wagner on 09/26/13 - 07:30 AM
Just because Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)'s new LP was delayed till 2014 doesn't mean we can't premiere new music from them. Check out the band's latest split release with Japan's Malegoat in the replies. The split is a jammer for sure, so if you dig it make sure you pre-order it at Count Your Lucky Stars. You can also check out the band's upcoming tour dates with Dowsing.

Alex DiVincenzo on 09/20/13 - 08:59 AM
After putting out some material on Equal Vision Records, Ghost Thrower (ex-Therefore I Am) are going the independent route for their self-titled album. The effort is due out digitally on October 15th, but you can stream a new track, "The King of Louisiana," in the replies. The band have shifted their sound a bit from their earlier material, but I think fans of Tigers Jaw and Balance and Composure will like it.

Christian Wagner on 09/17/13 - 07:04 AM
When we streamed a Sudden Suspension track two weeks ago, the response was overwhelming. Over 50 replies for an unsigned, unknown, young pop-punk band meant we had to make sure to give you guys a full EP stream of the band's new EP Second Place.

Ever since we announced Haden Brightwell as The Company We Keep's new vocalist, we've been excited to hear results. Today we have "Control" from their upcoming full-length, Sound/No Sound (more on that later). The sound's exactly as I'd hoped - Haden's stellar vocals, molded through melodies from Motion City Soundtrack's Justin Pierre, flanked by Brian Southall's guitar/programming wizardry a la The Receiving End Of Sirens/Isles & Glaciers, and percussion via Misery Signals' Branden Morgan. Hit the replies for their music video, tour dates, and Brian's explanation of #SoundNoSound; pre-order Sound/No Sound here - the album releases October 29 via Easy Killer Records.
Jack Appleby on 09/16/13 - 09:05 AM

The sixth chapter in Vanna's ambitious 10-part video series, The Few and the Far Between: The Movie, is set to one of my favorite tracks on the record, "Please Stay." The video matches the song's intensity, as our protagonists take mushrooms and trip in the woods. The members of Vanna appear in this one, looking like they're part of Cobra Kai. Check it out in the replies.
Alex DiVincenzo on 09/13/13 - 08:25 AM
It seems like a lot of exciting new bands are emerging from the Nashville scene lately, huh? Add another to the list, as Courtesy Drop plans to unleash its style of melodic post-hardcore in the form of its Animal Style Records debut, Songs to Drive to; Cry, and Make Love To. Today, we have a sneak peek from that LP - you can exclusively stream "A Toast To The Valiant Phil Coulson" in the replies. The band's new album will be available on October 15th and is available to pre-order.

The Fort Collins, CO, quintet will be releasing its new album, Wild American Runners, in mid-October and today we're bringing you a great slice of said album by premiering "Coals." If you're a fan of Lucero, The Gaslight Anthem, and The Hold Steady, then this band and song will be right in your sweet spot. Check out "Coals" in the replies. If you dig it, make sure you pre-order it as well.
Drew Beringer on 09/12/13 - 10:33 AM
I'm delighted that we're exclusively streaming the debut EP from Illinois pop-punkers, Game Changer. Three Years is an exhilarating, fun, youthful EP that brings to mind the likes of The Story So Far, Handguns and early All Time Low. The EP is officially available to buy from the band's Bandcamp tomorrow, but until then, head to replies to hear it. Thank me later.
Kelly Doherty on 09/12/13 - 04:31 AM
It's tough to put my finger on who to compare Microwave to. I hear some influence of Jimmy Eat World, Balance and Composure, and even hints of modern pop-punk bands like Real Friends. Whatever the case may be, the band has a new EP When The Fever Breaks coming out next week and we're premiering the track "Labor Day" for you. Listen in the replies and leave your thoughts.
Christian Wagner on 09/10/13 - 07:41 AM
A couple months ago, we premiered a track from Deer Widow's upcoming self-titled EP. Flash forward to today and we're premiering the entire thing.

The band will be releasing its debut EP on Save Your Generation Records and you can pre-order the EP on 10" vinyl. In the meantime, stream the entire EP in the replies.
Drew Beringer on 09/09/13 - 10:25 AM

SURPRISE! Bet you didn't see this one coming. Today we've got a brand new song from The Morning Of called "Holden."

Take a listen in the replies and catch them in NYC at The Webster Hall on September 29.
Christian Wagner on 09/08/13 - 04:40 AM
