Signal Versus Noise - Take It From Me

Signal Versus Noise just dropped their new anthem in recognition of Suicide and Prevention Month. This beautiful song has some pretty inspiring lyrics meant to offer hope for those seeking solace from the pain of mental anguish. You are not alone in this fight. I too struggle with mental health issues and understand your plight. Never be alone, never be ashamed, and never stop seeking help. There is hope, there is an answer, and there is a remedy for your pain. Prayer and a Christ centered support system is amazing as is dr assisted psychological help. Drop the stigma, you’re not alone. #mentalhealthawareness

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.
