So a few months back, a Christian deathcore/hardcore band from Matamoros, Mexico took the scene by storm with their message of faith, hope, and love that comes through Christ our Saviour. That band was My Place Was Taken. What seperated them from others doing the like is that their lyrics are all in Spanish. Continued →

The highly anticipated new album from well seasoned punk rock veteran, Ethan Luck, is out now. The album is jam packed with memorable choruses, bass heavy delivery, and a warm, inviting horn section that will keep you entertained for hours. This 10 track album was funded by fans through Kickstarter with a lot of us getting the vinyl version among other incentives. When I say “Buy it” I don’t mean that lightly. It is my full intention to persuade you, the reader, to drop what you’re doing and support true independent music by purchasing the album. SMLXLVinyl is stocking the album for those that missed out on the crowd funding campaign. More info can be found below. Just think of it this way, if you enjoyed the sounds of that 2004 OC Supertones album “Revenge of the OC Supertones” (that Ethan Luck helped write and played on) then you’re going to love this. Just take the more somber, introspective, and kick back songs of that record mixed together with some Interrupters, Rebelution, Hepcat, and The Dingees, to get an idea of the sounds found within. The production is top of the line and the musicians featured are definite pros (ex-members of OC Supertones, The Ws, and more). Ethan has been in so many bands in the past 22 years or so that it would be tough to document each involvement. Demon Hunter, Relient K, The Dingees, Value Pac, Project 86, OC Supertones, Pax, etc etc. Thank you Ethan for making the album you were always meant to create. Now all of you go give this as listen!
One more song from the Josh White and Josh Garrels collaboration titled “Enclosed by You”, can be heard below. The song is an older Josh White track that has been re-recorded by both artists in their collaborative style. This is a beautiful song as is the last one released from this project. I can’t wait to get this whole release.
A very promising new punk rock band out of Arizona called “Reliance”, have just posted their brand new music video for their song “No Matter What”. This expertly shot music video captures the essence of punk rock and showcases the talent these guys have. Listen to the song below and make sure to purchase their ep right here. Recommended for fans of: Pennywise, Pulley, Bad Religion, No Use for a Name, Authority Zero, and Rise Against.
Check out this new electronic-pop group from Abbotsford, Canada called “Sons and Kings“. This is their lyric video for the song “I Lost My Way”, which you can find below. Great lyrics and a solid melody with uplifting lyrics. Thanks to Jason LaVergne for the recommendation. Make sure to follow the group on Facebook here.

Indiana based pop-punk band Blank Pages, have recently revealed that they had their van stolen along with all their instruments and recording equipment. They are seeking help via a gofundme page page here. Please consider helping these talented guys out. They were currently working on a new album. Stay tuned.
Detroit post-hardcore duo American Arson have returned from a brief hiatus with the explosive-yet-catchy single, “Rise”, which you should definitely check out below. “Rise” opens with the pair’s trademark grit, before seamlessly going into a sing-along bit. The track shimmers with some of the most melodic elements we’ve seen from American Arson to date – the chorus is catchy and there’s a shimmering, synth-like ambiance at play that gives it a fair share of pop sensibility.
