I am excited to announce (thank you Marco) that indie post-grunge/rock act, Eaves, have dropped their debut full length titled “As Deeply As You Do” via bandcamp here. Right now the album is available in digital format but physical media is coming soon according to the band. Check them out on Facebook here. Listen to the album below and make sure you purchase it. The album is only $5 and it’s pure quality entertainment meant to inspire and evoke emotion. Recommended for fans of Make Do and Mend, Hot Water Music, Incubus, Everything In Slow Motion, Attalus, Thrice, and My Epic. The music sounds great for an independent act and I think many of our readers are going to instantly be attracted to these sounds. Continued →

This deeply personal song titled “Broken” from solo artist I Still Dream, is a true heart tugging track inspired by James’ personal trials with the loss of his father a year ago. Check out the song below via SoundCloud. Lyrics can also be found below. This isn’t the typical “solo” song you’d expect. Raging, aggressive guitar work, screaming out in agony, and yet held together with the threads of Faith interwoven throughout the song. This deeply personal track is sure to win over new fans all over the globe. The song is available on all Digital networks. Continued →

So excited to announce that the brand new Stavesacre full length “MCMXCV” is finally here. Take a listen to the songs on all digital networks including YouTube, below. If you don’t have this Stavesacre album yet and aren’t listening to it right now then I’ve lost all faith in humanity ;) Seriously though, drop what you are doing and give a listen to the new album from Stavesacre, their first new music since 2009. It’s more than nostalgia and longing for past glory, this is a step above all the other “rock” records of 2017. It’s a beautiful reminder of the powerful impact MUSIC can have on one’s soul. For me this band has always held a special significance for me in my walk and contemplation on life. Mark Salomon is one the finest rock n’ roll vocalists to grace our music scene in the past 20+ years as he has fronted this band (and before with The Crucified). I still have the fondest memories of seeing these guys live back in the day even when all the crowds around us seemed more concerned with punk and ska. These gentlemen always captivated the crowd and my heart. Thank you guys for making the best album of 2017 and revitalizing the rock scene. I hope even more people will discover the magic of this band. Continued →

The spotlight should shine brightly on this new band called Voyagers out of Washington state. The band just released their debut single titled “No Consequence” (through bandcamp for name your price) and it is a refreshing take on the post-hardcore/indie rock genre. Smooth vocals that aren’t off tune, well placed bass, guitars, and percussion. I’m loving the bass heavy sound (at least on my stereo) and I feel these guys have a lot to say through their music and a sound that will keep them ahead of the pack. Please give these guys a listen and prepare yourselves for the sounds of Voyagers. RIYL: Thursday, Sparta, Thrice, Brand New, Jimmy Eat World, and DENS. More news to follow.

Emery have had their fair share of problems recently with tour vehicles breaking down but the band keeps pressing on like the solid road warriors they are. The band bought a really old bus and are currently in the process of renovating it. As you can see from the LIVE video they filmed yesterday, they still have quite a ways to go (no AC, and in the heat of West Coast). So this is where we call come in. The band has launched a little campaign via their website here where you can get an exclusive 17 track LIVE album for $25. This bus looks totally DIY and Punk Rock! Consider helping them today and keep them on the road so they can continue blowing up speakers all over the U.S. and beyond with their explosive rock n’ roll.
