In celebration of the upcoming new music from Nebraska based indie rock/emo band Names Without Numbers, the band has been posting these special “Meet the Band” type videos on their Facebook page. They will do it every week leading up to the May 21st release of the brand new single on IVM and the launch of their IndieGoGo campaign. Check out the video (both of them) below. Make sure to visit them on Facebook here and say hello. This talented group of men known as Names Without Numbers for those that are unfamiliar with their music would most likely earn a fan out of you for those that enjoy bands like Anberlin, House Of Heroes, The Juliana Theory, Jimmy Eat World, and Taking Back Sunday.
Following in the footsteps of solo outings from the greats like Tony Sly, Joey Cape, Tim Armstrong, and Chuck Ragan, comes this new solo ep from punk warrior – Sef Idle. The first official song from the “Someday, Today” Ep has been released and this incredible new track “I Don’t Remember” can be streamed below. The song appears on the “Someday, Today” Ep due out May 8th. Buy it on Tape/CD here and on Bandcamp here.

Talkie, the band comprised of a few former members of the great Blood & Water, has returned with their 2nd full length effort called “Fundamental Things”. Right now for next 48 hours you can download the album for $1 via their bandcamp here. Great production quality and catchy indie-pop songs but I seriously want one more Blood & Water album. It probably won’t happy but whatever I’ll hold out hope ;)
Laura McElroy who is one-half of the songwriting team of Post-Hardcore/Indie band Comrades (Facedown Records), has announced some “solo” dates under her own name. This singer-songwriter has released a couple of demos right here on bandcamp and will hopefully work on a ep or full length at some point (yes please). Catch her at Audiofeed Festival this summer!

Today is release day for an album I am really excited to share. This ska-pop-punk-core (whatever you want to call them because they defy all definitions) from the state of Illinois called Must Build Jacuzzi have put together an insane collection of songs assembled in an album known as “Last Place”.

The uniquely individual Israeli music group known as Miqedem are back with their second full length effort of original songs composed entirely in Hebrew and centered around sacred biblical text. This is worship music done not by hipsters in the Nashville spotlight or big arena Christian rock events, but by a group of messianic jews who are composing something fresh and entirely original. The group is currently on tour in the U.S. right now so be sure to check out their Facebook page for all the tour dates. Check out the album below and purchase on bandcamp here.
Ethan Luck is a veteran. This seasoned musician and songwriter has been playing on albums for more pretty much all of his entire adult life. He has worked with nearly everyone from Pax (before the ‘217’), Project 86, The Dingees, Value Pac, OC Supertones, Demon Hunter, Relient K, recently as touring musician with Kings of Leon and of course his solo work. This new album will continue some of the more “punk” aspects of his last few solo releases and aim the focus directly at Ska and Reggae sounds, incorporating them in his punk rock aesthetic. If you enjoyed his work in the past and are hungry for the next wave of ska to hit, then definitely check out his campaign right here and join with the many others supporting this true comeback in the making. From the sounds of this first demo I can already tell that the album is going to be an enormous hit and reach both new and old fans alike. With this current interest in revitalizing the “ska” scene from people like those hosting the Back To The Beach Ska Fest (this weekend) and SuperNova International Ska Festival, to those putting together a documentary on 90’s ska, all those classic bands making a comeback like Save Ferris, and the next generation of bands like Must Build Jacuzzi, the scene is ripe for the next wave!
We had a chance to talk with Beaver Falls, PA indie rock group Captain the Sky about their new deluxe EP, the future of the band, and Chick-fil-A. Check them out on Facebook and be sure to follow them on Spotify!

News that has been a long time coming and something I am over the moon excited about. The Omaha, Nebraska based indie/emo band Names Without Numbers, have indeed signed with Indie Vision Music. I will be working with the band to promote their new upcoming music including a special single that goes live on May 21st. I have a special connection to this band and followed them for several years during the last decade until they broke up. I actually put the band on a compilation I produced called “I’m Your Biggest Fan Vol. 2” back in 2002 on Tooth & Nail Records. I loved their music and their song “Waking From The Coma” is perfect early 00’s independent rock n’ roll with that perfect balance of post-hardcore and emo ambiance. These guys came to an end during the mid part of last decade but reunited a year ago and have been playing shows again plus recording NEW music. Watch the video below and get a piece of the story in a fun behind the scenes look from Dave. Their new music rules and you’re all going to love it. It’s a departure from the pop-punk you think we may be defined by but in actuality IVM seeks to expose listeners to a broad spectrum of music styles. Welcome NWN to the family and prepare to be thrilled with independent music that doesn’t suck. Stay tuned to their page and ours for a new video each week leading up to the release of the song(s).
If you haven’t seen the awesome new lyric video from Must Build Jacuzzi for their song “3rd Out of 3 Ain’t Bad” then click here and check it out. The site Already Heard also has a track by track breakdown of every song on the new album “Last Place” that will release this Friday through IVM. Continued →
Those insane horror-punks in Grave Robber are back and with a brand new album, “Escaping The Grave”. Check out this really cool lyric video for the song “Zombieland”, below. “We are extremely excited to unleash this tale of terror on an unsuspecting world. It’s been seven years since our last offering of horror and now we are finally seeing Escaping The Grave come to fruition. We sincerely hope that the new record is one that encourages, uplifts, entertains and maybe send shivers down your spine. More importantly. . . may The Reanimator be glorified!” -Wretched Graverobber. For fans of: The Misfits, Alice Cooper, Ramones

If this song is any indication, this is going to be one amazing album. Continued →

Luke Easter who was the powerful lead vocalist for long running Christian metal band – Tourniquet, has returned to the music scene in the form of a 7 track ep which he is raising money for on IndieGoGo. He has some pretty amazing special guests laying down instruments and I am positive that mixed with his talents the Ep will be an unforgettable experience. Continued →
