Taking Back Sunday, one of my favs (not to sound too unprofessional but honestly), plan to release “TAYF10 Acoustic” on June 18th. If you have any inkling of hearing, Taking Back Sunday and acoustic in the same sentence, I think you need to be pinched because I know I need to know this is real life. You can watch the trailer for the album and be in pure awesomeness for a few seconds.
Sleeping With Sirens released their new album “Feel” on June 4th. The hype surrounding this album was evident on any given social media website. Everyone was tweeting, tumbling, posting, and texting about it. A lot of people were even dubbing it one of the top album of the 2013 without
The Summer Set, after just releasing a full length album “Legendary”, made an announcement via Facebook that their music video for their hit single “Bommerang” on June 6th via Vevo. The song is super fun and energetic. Who knows what the music video might entail? Check out a screenshot below that the band posted a few days ago. Make sure to keep a look out on Vevo for the music video on June 6th!
This past Friday night Fall Out Boy’s Save Rock And Roll Tour hit the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. It was their first time back as a full band since they went on hiatus in 2009. For this leg of the tour they brought along upbeat rockers New Politics. New Politics hails from Copenhagen, Denmark as well as Long Island, New York. This mixed origin band did nothing but surprise on stage. Not only were their songs insanely catchy and interactive live, but their lead singer, David Boyd, had a few dancing tricks up his sleeve. He had the whole crowd entertained as he break danced across the stage in between two of the bands songs. New Politics doesn’t necessarily fit with Fall Out Boy’s sound but they are definitely a great up and coming band. Their combination of punk rock with upbeat pop is done almost perfectly. It’s a very hard combination and they have nailed it. If you don’t have the chance to go see them on this tour then go ahead and give them a listen. Their new album “A Bad Girl In Harlem” just came out and the track “Harlem” is the perfect way to introduce yourself to them.
After Fall Out Boy’s much awaited return, they did not disappoint. Many of the fans present had never seen the band before. For those that had, they already had their expectations high and those expectations were definitely met. From the way the entire band interacted on stage to the detailed production that went into the show, (screens projecting video to accompany almost every song) Fall Out Boy had come to perform and give their fans the best show they had ever seen. They played songs from all of their albums including old hits like, “Tell That Mick He Just Made My List of Things To Do Today” and “Saturday”. Throughout the show they made sure that their message of “Save Rock And Roll” was very clear. Bassist Pete Wentz pointed out that the fans are Rock And Roll, not the music. We are Rock And Roll and we are the ones that need to save the music and ourselves. If you aren’t able to catch Fall Out Boy on this club tour, don’t worry. They still have tickets available for their stadium tour with Panic! At The Disco and Twenty One Pilots. For dates, check out their website.

The guys in The Maine released via their blog that they will be hosting a “Secret Show” in Hollywood, CA on June 6th. Now, before I go on with any further details, secrets are indeed what keep people close, but according to Pretty Little Liars, it’s also pretty dangerous. I feel a little unsafe, The Maine (just saying). If you want to proceed with caution, visit the Fingerprints Record Shop on June 4th to pick up The Maine’s brand new album, “Forever Halloween.” The first 80 people to purchase the record will receive an ALL ACCESS pass + instructions for their show on June 6th. All of you west coasters better be ready to run there now. May the odds be ever in your favor!
