Le Tired, the rock supergroup featuring Cove Reber (SAOSIN/Dead American), Joey Bradford (The Used), and Kyle Rosa (Atreyu/Dead American), just released their new single "Far Out" featuring Sean Mackin of Yellowcard.

"Being the last generation to grow up "pre internet" has given us a wild perspective on the impacts of technology on our culture. People seem to be completely removed from reality at times, and even more strange, they seem ok with it," shares Joey Bradford. "It was a casual conversation we had with our childhood hero, Sean Mackin from Yellowcard, before humbly asking him to make a jam with us. The irony is, Yellowcard was the first band I ever illegally downloaded when the internet started poisoning us all. 'I just find it far out'." (continue)

Metal Allegiance began as a celebration of heavy metal, powered by the almost tribal bond shared between the extreme music community's most revered trailblazers, armed with a list of contributors onstage (and off) that read like a Wikipedia entry on the genre itself - whose "core 4" is comprised of David Ellefson, Mark Menghi, Alex Skolnick, and Mike Portnoy.

On September 6th, 2024, the band will rock the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, on a bill that will also feature Meanstreak and Held Hostage. As with their previous shows, expect a setlist that balances original material with classic covers of metal royalty. (continue)

Veteran rural punk rockers Nine Pound Hammer are back and ready to bring the house down - in more ways than one! The band just released a full-throttle thrillride of a new single that perfectly captures the band's party-till-you-drop-or-get-kicked-out ethos. "Nobody Wants To Party With Me," originally recorded by Nashville underground rock heroes Natural Child, features a menacing, muscular guitar riff that chugs along at just the right pace to keep the audience on their toes before it bursts forth with a catchy singalong chorus, a real glasses in the air, fist-pumping epic!

Vocalist Scott Luallen, who's been fronting the band since their 1988 debut album, declares, "This killer song by Natural Child would have been my de facto anthem back in the day. We had to cover it!" (continue)

"This song is one of the quietest songs we have done, but I can see more of that coming," says vocalist/guitarist John Treanor of Los Angeles-based psychedelic shoegazers Tombstones In Their Eyes (TITE) about their iridescent new single "I'm Not Like That" (released today June 4th via Kitten Robot).

Layered with shimmery, corduroy textures and punctuated with a swampy slide guitar, the track glimmers in textural brilliance while he appeals to understanding and acceptance. "The lyrics came in my normal stream-of-consciousness method," he adds. "Whatever came out was from somewhere inside my psyche. It is kind of a plea for help as well as an expression of gratitude for love received." (continue)

Saint Social just released their new EP "Don't Let The Fire Die Here", and to celebrate we asked singer Quinn Erwin to tell us about the title track. Here is the story:

"Don't Let the Fire Die" is the marriage of the past and the present in one song. The guys and I in Saint Social were building out our set of songs, and we felt like we were missing one that would function like a single, but in the way that was an identifier of what we're about. It needed to be a call to action. In a way, we wanted it to sort of be our "We Will Rock You" moment maybe. We just knew that somehow, we wanted it to get our audience involved in some sort of action in our set or at least give an invitation to be a part of what we're doing. On my end, I knew I wanted it to feel more direct than anything I'd written, but not cheesy...just earnest. We talked about wanting this song to convey movement or joy as a form of resistance against giving up or letting hard emotions take over; not ignoring or stuffing them by any means, but processing through them with the whole self...physical action. That's where the idea of "Clap your hands 'til you feel alright..." were born. (continue)
