Mansions' New Best Friends turned five yesterday, and Chris Browder from the band has written an emotionally heavy blog to remark the past few years since its release. In addition, the reissue of the album with an accompanying 7” is now on sale via Bad Timing Records.
In this day and age, there is an abundance of music to choose from, in literally any genre, for music fans. In my experience, this has been a blessing and a curse at the same time -- finding new artists to truly connect to is an indescribable feeling, but one that has ceased to be special as it used to be by the sheer fact that there is so much wonderful music to explore. However, once in a while, an artist comes by who makes a lasting impression because their music simply blows you away.

The band is also doing a quick tour - dates are below.
Check out a new Chiodos song called "Duct Tape" and the NSFW video on Revolver. Devil releases April 1st on Razor & Tie.
It’s hard not to keep watching this video from the get go,” Chiodos’ Brad Bell says. “The imagery is very stimulating and evokes emotions that might be uncomfortable to some people. That’s kind of what the song represents to me in general — getting over your insecurities that hold you back and taking the next step forward.
You're going to have to set the clock back a few years for this one. At one point, Canada's Fighting For Ithaca was part of a large core of bands doing the Four Year Strong-style songwriting.

I think the diversity of radio now, means there's probably a good size station for virtually every genre, which is a plus I think. It's good that people aren't forced to listen to mainstream stuff, even if it means a smaller potential audience on a given station.

Hit the replies to watch the new video "Eyes" by Kids Without Instruments. The LA based duo were recently signed with Benjamin Groff of Kobalt Music Publishing (Grimes, The Lumineers, Bonobo) and they will be releasing an EP later this year.
Kurt Ballou had always intimidated the living shit out of me, so I was overjoyed when the decision was made to record our next record with him at GodCity and I mean that sincerely. I've been a fan of his work for over a decade. His records are terrifying and moving and they sound like they were written and recorded under great duress, which is exactly how this style of music should be made. This month we join the pantheon. I couldn't be more excited to see what he helps us learn about our own band that we didn't realize for the past 15 years.
