Emmure brightened up a rainy day by bringing their fall tour with Stick To Your Guns, Wage War and Sanction to Clifton Park on October 27 2018.
Walking across the gravel grounds of the Hartford Xfinity Center, it is impossible to miss the screams of sheer excitement and joy from fans attending the Vans Warped Tour.
The music world has been waiting since the release of 2013’s What You Don’t See, for the new highly anticipated self-titled album from the popular pop-punk group, The Story So Far. With the album out May 19th, you won’t stop hearing about them until it’s official release, and probably more-so after that. With their unique mix of punk instrumentals and hard-hitting powerful vocals, The Story So Far have set themselves apart from other bands in the music scene, and have especially developed their own sound on this new record. Sure to top their 2013 record 50 on the Billboard 200 chart with next week’s release, The Story So Far are dominating the music scene right now, and from the talent off this new record, it appears they will continue to do so.
All Time Low’s Future Hearts Tour kicked off at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, MA on April 15 with support from Issues, Tonight Alive and State Champs. The crowd showed up early and packed into the venue quickly, excited for the night to start. With four outstanding bands the night was certainly set to be a night to remember.
Pop-punk group Hit The Lights are back, with their fifth full-length album, Summer Bones, out March 24th. As the band’s first release since 2012, the record has been highly anticipated by fans for months, is sure not to disappoint anyone who hears it. The growth and maturity in their sound is as evident as their consistency with upbeat breakdowns, lyrical genius, and energetic instrumentation.
Post-hardcore group Senses Fail, and pop-punk group Man Overboard, have teamed up to create a split EP, released March 3rd through Pure Noise Records. The EP features a brand new track by each band, and a cover of one of the other’s songs. The EP acts as a sort of battle between the two bands, with the opening two tracks by Man Overboard, and the last two by Senses Fail. In years past, it was quite popular for bands to do a “VS” split against one another, so this acts as an almost a rebirth of the concept, that the two bands do quite successfully.
