Video From Green Day's Club Tour Kick Off Goes Online

(hennemusic) Green Day opened the Revolution Radio North American club tour at the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, OH on September 26 and video from the show has surfaced online.

"Green Day has long combined the sneering three-chord energy of foundational punk with Saturday-morning-cartoon accessibility," writes Brad Keefe of Columbus Alive. "In a word, its live show was … fun. The musicians burst out of the starting gate with a joy and energy that lasted through a 25-song set that pushed two hours. The setlist dove deep into the band's biggest albums, including 1994's 'Dookie' and 2004's 'American Idiot', but wove in tracks from throughout its catalog."

The Columbus show became opening night of the Bay Area band's rare club tour after the band postponed the first three dates due to an illness "affecting several members of the band and its crew."

Originally scheduled to open in St. Louis, MO on September 20, the group also postponed stops in Chicago, IL (Sep. 21) and Detroit, MI (Sep 24), while a Toronto, ON appearance at the World Cup Of Hockey Fan Village on September 23 was canceled. Check out the video here.

Old Sea Brigade Streams New Song 'All The Same'

Old Sea Brigade, a.k.a. Atlanta-born, Nashville-based singer/songwriter Ben Cramer, has released a stream of a new song called "All The Same."

The track will be featured on his forthcoming debut album, which will be released sometime next year under his new label and publishing deal with the Nettwerk Music.

Cramer had this to say about the new song, "'All The Same' is about building up a negative situation in your head, and rather than doing anything to fix it, you slowly realize you're just making it worse. I personally find I don't feel better about an issue until I'm actively trying make it better, which often comes after a stagnant period of speculation." Listen

Singled Out: Forever Ends Here's Take Me There

Sydney band Forever Ends Here are making a big splash Down Under with their recently released their debut album and to celebrate we asked them to tell us about the song "Take Me There". Here is the story:

"Take Me There" was the final puzzle piece needed to complete our debut album "Imagine This." A lot had happened in the year prior. We'd just introduced our new guitarist, Arran Barker, and this song was our first chance to incorporate his creative ability into our work.

The song stemmed from the opening piano melody which was a totally new way of writing for us. Luke wrote all of the lyrics, chord progressions and melodies within a day. It came together so quickly because it just felt right. Once the back bone of the song was there it was time for Arran to add his touch - introducing exciting new synth sounds that we hadn't had a chance to experiment with before. The four of us then spent a few days at Electric Sun Studios with our close friend and talented producer Stevie Knight to add the final touches and bring the song to life.

Lyrically, "Take Me There" expresses a connection between two people where no matter what paths they take, life always seems to brings them back together.

It's a song we're incredibly proud of and something that truly represents who we are as musicians. This is a sound that you can expect to hear more of in the future of Forever Ends Here.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
