I Am Empire is currently in the studio recording their next full length album. Brian McTernan (Thrice, Circa Survive, Senses Fail, Set Your Goals, Fireworks, The Movielife, etc. ) is producing the album. I have high hopes that this is going to be the album that defines I Am Empire. Best of luck guys. [Thanks Eric]
The news you have all been waiting for. Please read below for a press release on the new Capital Lights album and see the album cover. If you missed my “First Listen” mini-review, click here.
I am a little late on today’s Video Flashback and I do apologize. Today’s Video in the Video Flashback series is “Paperthin Hymn” by the band Anberlin. This song appears on the band’s 2005 Tooth & Nail release, “Never Take Friendship Personal”. How many Anberlin fans do we have here?
Write This Down released the lyric video for “I’ll Make You Famous”. Check it out below. The band’s upcoming album, titled Lost Weekend, drops next Tuesday June 5th. [Thanks GMAN]
The band States (comprised of former members from Lydia and Copeland) have signed with Tooth & Nail Records. The band and label will re-release an “upgraded” version of their album “Room to Run” on June 19th. Read the full press release here.
Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Driver Eight and their song “Strange”. The album “Watermelon” was released on Tooth & Nail Records back in 1996. They only released one album then called it quits. It was a shame because they had major potential to be the next huge alt-rock band. I did see them a few times during their run and they were a fabulous live band. Hey Tooth & Nail, I really hope you’re planning a 20th Anniversary Fest down here in Orange County next year ;) Bring back some of these bands just for one night.
I just got done spinning the new Capital Lights album, “Rhythm N’ Moves” thanks to Tooth & Nail. It’s definitely a summertime ready album full of memorable hooks and unforgettable melodies. It’s definitely got a “pop” oriented take on their infectious sound and would most likely please fans of “This Is An Outrage”. The subject matter is mostly relationship based and dripping with pure unfiltered sugary pop. It’s probably less “punk” and more pop-rock if you know what…
I have finally changed out our old poll which has been up for many months. Sorry for the wait folks. Here is our new poll, “What is Your Most Anticipated June Tooth & Nail Release?”. Go vote for one of the 3 listed and then post your comments here.
Children 18:3 have released a new song on the Tooth & Nail website called “Moment By Moment”. You can check out the song, tracklisting, & cover art to their upcoming June 19th release, titled On The Run, below.
Sent By Ravens have had a pretty big year so far. Currently on the road with Project 86, just wrapped a tour with Emery and dropped their spohmore release on Tooth and Nail Records, Mean What You Say. I recently had the pleasure to interview vocalist Zach Riner via email.
Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Watashi Wa with their song “All of Me” off the album “The Love of Life” (2003 Tooth & Nail Records). Members of this band have gone to play with Eager Seas, Lakes and Bonnie Dune. Seth even played guitar for Mxpx on a few tours. I hosted a show with this band back in 2001 before they signed with T&N and when they were still working with Bettie Rocket. Great guys with some of the best music around. They released two full lengths on Bettie Rocket, one full length on Tooth & Nail (there was a second full length on T&N under the ‘Watashi Wa’ name but it was originally meant as an Eager Seas release). Such solid music from a talented band.
Check out the album cover image for the new Write This Down release “Lost Weekend”. The album will be released on June 5th 2012 through Tooth & Nail Records.
Today’s Video Flashback is from Mxpx. I am featuring two songs/videos by them, one in 1995 “Teenage Politics” (From ‘Teenage Politics’ Tooth & Nail Records), and the other 2005 “Heard That Sound” (From ‘Panic’ Side One Dummy Records). I first got into this band in 1994 with their Pokinatcha album after some random dude recommend that I check out the cd at a Christian bookstore when I was in high school. I have followed them through each subsequent release over the years and have seen them multiple times live. So many good memories listening to Mxpx tunes. In celebration of my Birthday today (I’m 34!), check out these two videos and re-live the glory days. Enjoy! “Plans Within Plans” is available in stores now. Happy 20th anniversary Mxpx.
Today’s video flashback is from Squad 5-0 and their song “I Don’t Want to Change the World” (‘Self Titled’ 2002 Tooth & Nail Records). The band went through so many different phases over their run as a band and this is a fine example of their high points. The band will be reuniting this summer for Cornerstone Festival.
Today’s Video Flashback is from the long running indie rock band, Starflyer 59. The song is “A Housewife Love Song” from the “Gold” album (1995 Tooth & Nail Records). I have also posted the video “No New Kinda Story” (2000 Tooth & Nail Records) below for a double shot this morning. Such a great band with a rich history of music recordings.
Today’s Video Flashback is from Strongarm for their song “Trials” off the “Atonement” album (1995 Tooth & Nail Records). This was the album that got me into the band the first time. I had the pleasure of seeing them perform on two different occasions with original vocalist back in the mid-90s and they were an explosive spirit-filled band. I loved these guys. This song/album features original vocalist Jason Berggren. Baggy pants for the win ;)
Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Slick Shoes and their song “Alone” off the “Self Titled” 2002 release on Tooth & Nail Records. The band had/has such a catchy pop-punk sound as evidenced on this track. Their Tooth & Nail albums were all great. It’s also interesting to note that when the band released their first ep on T&N, the singer (Ryan) was only 14! Crazy. The band has recently reunited and have begun playing shows. There is even talk of a new album.
Children 18:3’s brand new album, “On the Run”, is slated for release on June 19th. This will be the Minnesota-based pop-punk trio’s third full-length studio album and their third release with Tooth & Nail Records. [Thanks Jahwarriah]
Write This Down’s sophomore release for Tooth & Nail Records is titled ”Lost Weekend” and will release on June 5! Who’s pumped for this release?
I am giving you a double dose of Video Flashback today since it’s Saturday and I am sure many of us are bored ;) Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Off the Record. This band released one album on Tooth & Nail Records (Remember When) before splitting and then signed with New School Records. They released a full length “Mulligan” (2002) and their finest release to date the “Nothing New” ep which released in 2004. This band had that So. Cal. skate punk sound down and really started going places with their last and final ep. This song “Death of Me” is off “Nothing New” ep (2004 New School Records).
Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Dogwood with their video/song “Building a Better Me”. The song appears on the band’s album of the same name, “Building a Better Me” (2000 Tooth & Nail Records).
Today’s Video Flashback is actually a double dose and comes in the form of two song froms Stavesacre. The song/video for “An Eclipsing” appeared on the band’s second album for Tooth & Nail titled “Absolutes” (1997). The second song/video is “It’s Beautiful Once You’re Out Here” off the 2006 release “How to Live With a Curse” (Abacus/Century Media). There is almost a 10 year break between these two videos so I thought i’d give you a double shot of awesome. If you’ve never heard of Stavesacre, I encourage you to check them out and pick up an album or two.

Rocky Loves Emily have announced that they will release their debut full length on April 24th via Tooth & Nail. The album is titled Secrets Don’t Make Friends. Check out the album website here. There’s a countdown that ends Monday so I would assume they’ll be new song or video debuted.
