New Years Day have shared a brand new single called "Secrets" to announce that they will be releasing their 5th studio album, "Half Black Heart", on March 1, 2024.

Ash Costello had this to say about the new single, "'Secrets' is about something I feel we have all been through at some point. With this song, I started by confronting myself with the question, 'What is truly disturbing me right now?'. The answer that echoed in my mind was simple yet profound: secrets. We've all experienced that unsettling sensation when we sense that someone close to us is concealing something. It's an intuitive feeling that gnaws at our core, leaving us with a sinking sensation in our stomachs. The weight of these hidden truths can be enough to bury you. This song serves as a realization that enough is enough." (continue)

Texas duo MISSIO just released their new single "Heart Made Of Dynamite" and to celebrate we asked Matthew Brue to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

It seems like each year our writing process slightly changes according to where we're at mentally and even sometimes physically, (i.e.) being on tours in different parts of the world. For this fifth album we felt like there was a feeling that we wanted to convey that happened live with our drummer, Jaydon Bean based out of L.A. He's an incredibly talented songwriter and even better drummer and we all wanted the songs to feel like they had a similar rawness and power like you hear at a live MISSIO show. I asked him if he could send me some different drum takes of various tempos, feelings, vibes, etc & there was one that really stuck out to me. (continue)
