Everyone loves a good guest spot - there's just something so fun about a surprise vocalist sneaking their way onto track you wouldn't expect. When I The Mighty needed a female set of pipes for Satori, they called in The Material's Colleen D'Agostino to fill out "Four Letter Words," a stand out track on a damn good record. We reunited the band with their guest at the House Of Blues, grabbing an acoustic rendition of the song - check it out in the replies.

Nothing's better than watching a new band move full steam ahead, especially one teeming with potential. Featuring ex-Daytrader guitarist Matt Mascarenas, Heartless Breakers are those guys - anxious to work their asses off while showcasing skills both classic and unique for pop-punk. Their Prescriptions EP certainly hits that energy and angst of a Taking Back Sunday or The Wonder Years, but channels the musicianship of Bayside or older Transit. We could keep spitballing comparisons, or you could hit the replies and listen to their EP in full. Grab Prescriptions from the band's merch store, iTunes, and most other online retailers/streaming services.

"This record is so important to us.

Not everyone figures that out right away. Our hope is that these songs can help someone out there feel a little more at ease about who they...
