Another exciting signing to Facedown Records called “Weathered“, have just dropped their debut song “There Is One” via Facedown Records which you can listen to below. This is yet again another exciting addition to the growing “rock” roster of Facedown. Following bands like Everything In Slow Motion, My Epic, DENS, Comrades, Attalus, Withered seeks to connect with your soul through their shoe-gaze, mood mesmerizing new tunes. This is one of the finest new songs I’ve heard in recent memory and I am positive the rest of their full length will follow suit. Get pumped people because this is definitely the next exciting band to keep your eyes on. Pre-orders for the LP up here. “Stranger Here” drops on August 17th via Facedown Records.
After the past decade of just a few new songs here and there or a few re-releases (on vinyl) of their past catalog, the band MAE as a collective unit is BACK! Check out “5 Light Years” below via spotify. The song is available on all digital networks courtesy of Tooth & Nail Records. This reminds me of “Singularity” meets The Postal Service meets Sparta and Modest Mouse served in a bowl of Jimmy Eat World. It is electrifying, experimental, post-whatever everyone else is doing, and simply aggressive. It’s kind of like the Mae we’ve always wanted to hear that was bubbling just beneath the surface. It’ll be interesting to hear what everyone thinks. Comment below with your thoughts.

The gentlemen of pop/alt/prog act Captain the Sky are setting out to release their second full-length, “The Butterfly Effect”, this fall. This serves as a timely follow up to 2017’s “Lions & Foxes” and 2016’s “Mary Celeste”. Their newest single, Hibiscus, showcases a resurgence of their technical-but-radio-friendly sound with a strong mix of technical guitar lines, vocal trade-offs, and a strong rhythm section.

Post-hardcore is a genre of stigmas – on one hand, the easycore bands tend to dominate modern perception. On the other hand, people might form expectations around Fugazi. Arguably, the staple of modern post-hardcore borrows from hardcore but throws in a stronger melodic focus. Continued →

Since forming in the summer of 2000, they’ve released an EP and a full-length album, toured the midwest, played in venues ranging from basements to festivals, slept on floors, fought…a lot, took a break, started families, came out of retirement, and are now writing and recording songs for an upcoming album.

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).
