Heart Like War Drop New 5 Song Ep "Start Over"

So Cal melodic punk rock band, Heart Like War, have dropped their brand new 5 song ep “Start Over” which features a whole new lineup and enhanced sound. If you enjoyed their music in the past you’re going to be blown away by the new stuff. The band takes their catchy pop-punk and melodic punk to a whole new level mixing in perfectly placed harmonies, hard charging guitar parts, sing-a-long vocals and a certain rough around the edges take that keeps the punk rock alive and well. “Start Over” takes on a whole new meaning as the band introduces a heavy dose of mental health awareness through songs built on a foundation of hope with a message that you’re never alone and never too far gone to get help. There is an answer to your pain, your struggles, and peace for the journey through this life. This important message needs to resonate with a global audience and especially among Christians who are too ashamed, too embarrassed, and too proud to admit when they need help for very real human afflictions like mental illness. So take a ride on the punk rock train and ready yourself for a message that needs to be heard. You can find “Start Over” on all digital networks.

MxPx - Let's Ride (Official Music Video)

MxPx have finally unveiled the first new song from their upcoming new 10th studio album, “MxPx”. This beautifully filmed music video and extremely catchy new song can be heard below. Mid-Life punk rock takes on new meaning and brings to the forefront all those fresh memories from years ago that were bubbling just beneath the surface. The nostalgia runs deep in this song and video and I think us as fans couldn’t have asked for a better first single. “Let’s Ride” is not only the perfect introduction to a band who have had so many trials during their run but also a reintroduction to a band you might have gave up on after their first decade. Seriously, check this out and run through the past with your arms wide open. Let’s ride.

MxPx Prove It To The World That Tomorrow Is Not Just Another Day and Take Their Punk Rawk Show Directly to the Fans

That’s right friends, the much loved and critically adored long running legends of a band – MxPx, are back and with a new album. They are here to prove that 26 years later it isn’t the end but rather a step in the next phase of this band’s legendary career. It’s hard to believe that seeing them in some sweaty Church basement here in Orange County, CA. back in 1995 with all of us (band included) being youths, that their music would endure through the years attracting new fans each step of the way. For a 3 piece punk rawk band, that has to be a something they are proud of and all of us fans should commend them for. I know people grow up, beliefs change (for some), life situations alter, and other things in life can take a crazy spin, but when you have consistently solid music for 26 years you can’t help but sit back and be mesmerized by it all. I have always been a fan of this band because I appreciate positive music and because their sound has always remained a constant. They are a fitting reminder that you don’t have to go all prog-rock or super indie to be accepted by fans and peers. They are just themselves and that’s great for all of us. Anyway, the band has announced a kickstarter campaign to fund their new album. Watch the video below and contribute right here.
