Los Angeles rockers Bad Wolves have released a music video for their new track "Die About It," which is the title track to their forthcoming album that will arrive on November 3rd.
"'Die About It' is us using our music as an outlet to say f*ck you to anyone that doubts us, hates us, talks sh*t about us, or makes lies up about us," proclaims vocalist Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz. "We've put up with a lot of ridiculous bullsh*t from haters and people that want to stop us from making art that we love. If you have to question whether this song is about you, it probably is. We've all been musicians for a really long time, we've grown as artists, and we know what we want more now than ever. We want listeners to ride with us that have an open mind and are open to growth and change, as we are. For those that want to stand in the way of that, you can 'Die About It'" (continue)

Emerging rock artist Vera Bloom released her new EP, "It's Me" today (Sept 29th). To celebrate we asked her to tell us about the EP's latest single, "Eyes On You". Here is the story:
"Eyes On You" was originally a love song. When I was first writing this song, the chorus started out as "I only have eyes for you," but these words didn't fit well within the melody so I leaned into the possessiveness that can sometimes be found in a relationship and changed it to "my eyes are always on you." Over time, the lyrics started to change meaning for me; a lot of my songs end up being this way. What was once a verse talking about the mundane days of a relationship after the honeymoon phase is over, eventually became the realization that I was missing the childhood innocence that gets lost as we grow into adults. What was once the possessiveness in love became the admission that I want eyes on me as I mature and grow as a rock artist. (continue)
