Papa Roach achieve their 12th career No. 1 single with "Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark)", which has steadily risen the radio airwaves since its release in October 2023 at Active Rock Radio.

"Leave A Light On", a band favorite, was first performed live during the "The Revolutions Live Tour" starting in September, with 250,000 attendees at 30 shows. In each city, the song was preceded by an emotional video PSA delivered by frontman Jacoby Shaddix, who pledged a donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) on behalf of each city's attendees, culminating in a $155,000 donation at the end of the tour in Denver, CO. Following the tour, the band officially released the official video recorded on tour and subsequently re-named the single to radio as "Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark)", in conjunction with the AFSP's "Talk Away The Dark" campaign. Following the critically acclaimed tour, they pledged a perpetual royalty from the song's use, in any manner, to the AFSP, continuing their mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide long after the "Revolutions Live Tour" finished.

Thirty years after the release of their powerhouse debut Hitchhike to Rhome, alt-country pioneers Old 97's are celebrating with the announcement of their lucky 13th studio album American Primitive that will be released on April 5 via ATO Records. Opening with the lyric "You've got to dance like the world is falling down around you, because it is," American Primitive radiates with rambunctious joy even as Miller's lyrics contend with complex questions of love and mental illness and the routinely daunting state of the world. Today, the three-decade-long lineup of singer and guitarist Rhett Miller, bassist Murry Hammond, guitarist Ken Bethea, and drummer Philip Peeples released the official video for first single "Where The Road Goes" which features Peter Buck on guitar.

"I was in Montana and found myself on the banks of the Blackfoot River, watching the water pounding with a ferocious power, and I started building this song as a statement of gratitude for having survived this long," explains Miller. "It revisits some of the darkest moments of my life, including a suicide attempt at age 14 that by all rights I shouldn't have lived through and yet somehow did. In a way it's like a spiritual travelogue that rolls back through all the places that shaped me for better or worse, and ends up in this beautiful place that I felt so thankful to experience."

Canadian singer-songwriter Sam Drysdale recently released his new single and video called "Bonnie", and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

First and foremost, Bonnie was really intended as my return to solo-songwriting. I grew up playing guitar alone in my room and most of the artists I've always looked up to were the kind who's individual writing style was always so prevalent in their sound. I had spent the first portion of my career in a lot of writing rooms with other talented writers but missed the feeling of having full control of the proverbial car. I really liked the idea of writing a story that was completely detached from me and sung entirely through someone else's perspective. After watching a movie about Bonnie and Clyde that really highlighted Bonnie as the true spine behind their story, I thought it would be cool to write something from Clyde's perspective. Specifically about what compelled him to stay by her side despite it likely leading to his end. That kind of love, no matter how dangerous, was incredibly inspiring to me. The song is really about love and its relationship to sacrifice. Mainly about the sacrifices Clyde makes to continue being able to fall asleep next to Bonnie. I wanted the song to paint a blissful picture of their lives together while lying on a bedrock of ominous truths about where their love would lead them. (continue)
