Lamb of God Bring the Circle Pit to Late Night

Have you ever seen a circle pit form during a performance on a late night talk show? Well, if you haven’t (we are the first to admit that we’ve never seen it happen), then there’s definitely a first time for everything.

During their late night performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Lamb of God fans got so into the band’s two performances that they started a circle pit. In the video for “Still Echoes” you can see a man in a suit get pushed into the pit which is definitely a “what the…?” moment. Check out the band’s performances of “512” and “Still Echoes” from their recently released album, VII: Sturm und Drang below.

Lamb of God is currently on Slipknot’s “Summer’s Last Stand Tour” which is slated to end next Wednesday, Sept. 9, at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston. Tonight, the tour will invade the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The remaining tour dates can be seen below.

SLIPKNOT’S SUMMER’S LAST STAND TOUR:

8/28 Las Vegas, NV @ MGM Grand
8/29 Phoenix, AZ @ Ak-Chin Pavilion
8/30 Albuquerque, NM @ Isleta Amphitheater
9/1 Austin, TX @ Austin360 Amphitheater
9/2 Houston, TX @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

Simple Plan Bring the “Boom” with New Song

After the lukewarm reception their lead single, “Saturday” got a few months ago, Simple Plan has returned with another new song from their highly anticipated fifth studio album. The new song is titled “Boom” and is the first official music video for their yet-to-be-titled impending record. The music video features the band performing the track in what look like a studio. In between the shots of their studio performance, there are clips of the band performing at this year’s Vans Warped Tour.

The best part of the music video has to be all the guest cameos from the Canadian group’s friends which includes members of many bands that we like such as All-Time Low, New Found Glory, PVRIS, MXPX, Pierce the Veil, The Summer Set, Silverstein, Black Veil Brides, Parkway Drive, and Issues.

According to a statement from the band, the music video was filmed back in July during the Alternative Press Music Awards. Check out the video for “Boom” below and take a tally of how many band members you see throughout the over three-minute clip.

Simple Plan’s new album, which has been given the nickname #SPAlbum5 for the time being, was rumored to be released by the end of the year. Sadly, the band has revealed that they are still working on the record, but that they “will be playing [you] some more songs very soon! We will also give you more info on release date and pre-ordering, so keep checking back our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages @SimplePlan!”

For those who are digging “Boom,” the song is currently available for purchase on iTunes. This weekend, the band will be heading across the pond to the United Kingdom with a couple of the bands who made cameos in “Boom” for their performances at Reading and Leeds.

Imagine Dragons Go Back to Their “Roots” with New Song

It hasn’t even been a year since Imagine Dragons gave us their brand new album, Smoke + Mirrors, and now, it appears that the Las Vegas group may have some new material up their sleeves. Today (Aug. 27), the band released a brand new song titled “Roots.” The song, which is not featured on their sophomore effort, could be a new song from a new album, but at the same time, the band has been known to release new songs that were not featured on any album.

Back in 2013, they released “Who We Are” for the Hunger Games:Catching Fire soundtrack. In 2014, they released both “Battle Cry” for the Transformers: Age of Extinction soundtrack and another song titled “Warrior” which was specially created for the battle arena video game, League of Legends.

No matter where the song will be featured, it can currently be streamed below.

Imagine Dragons recently wrapped up their summer arena tour with Metric and Halsey in support of Smoke + Mirrors. “Roots” is currently available for purchase on iTunes.

Listen to New Politics’ Stripped Down “West End Kids”

If you have ever seen New Politics live, you would know first hand that their shows are usually full of more energy than someone who had drunk a lethal combination of Red Bull and Monster energy drinks. But did you ever imagine that you would see the day the Danish trio would put the energy to the side and give a stripped-down, piano version of one of their songs? Well, the band did just that recently and uploaded a stripped down version of their current single, “West End Kids.”

Watch the video of the piano rendition of “West End Kids” below.

“West End Kids” is the lead single from New Politics’ latest album, Vikings, which was released earlier this month through DCD2. In support of the new album, New Politics will be heading out on a fall tour with Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and The Griswolds. The tour will kick off on Oct. 13 at the Sodo Showbox in Seattle and wrap up a month and a half later on Nov. 28 at the Fillmore in Philadelphia.

Marcus Mumford Reveals Career ‘Contingency Plans’

Remember those days when you were little and your teachers would ask you what you wanted to be when you grew-up? Things like racecar driver, astronaut, and even a rock star might have been an answer at some point in time. Then, they would tell you that it was not a “very likely” dream and to pick something a little more “realistic.” Well, it look like even rock stars who sell-out arenas sometimes think like that.

During a recent interview with the United Kingdom’s The Big Issue, Mumford and Sons frontman, Marcus Mumford, somehow got onto the subject of what he would do if he was no longer in a big band. According to Mumford, he would be either a teacher or a farmer if his days of hitting the stage were to come to an end.

“I’m still not convinced this is my job,” begins Mumford.

“I’ve still got contingency plans at the back of my head, before every tour, about becoming a teacher or a farmer. I definitely have some sort of arrested development in terms of my psychology in terms of my career, where I still sort of feel like this is going to stop tomorrow.”

We guess we kind of understand why he thinks like that, after all, Mumford and Sons did go on a year-and-a-half-long hiatus due to exhaustion back in 2013 after taking the world by storm with their debut album Babel. But then again, from the pictures and videos we’ve seen of the band’s recent shows, we don’t see those contingency plans going into effect any time soon.

Hawthorne Heights Premiere “The Darkest Times”

It feels like it’s been several years since Hawthorne Heights has released new music and now it looks like the Ohio-based band is looking to change that.

Today (Aug. 26), the four-piece debuted a new song titled “The Darkest Times” from their upcoming EP, Hurt. The song, at first listen, sounds like it would have fit right in on their debut record, The Silence in Black and White. For those who grew up during the heyday of “emo” music (like us), it feels like a nice trip to those days when we used to look like pandas with our overly done eyeliner and multi-colored hair.

Listen to “The Darkest Times” below.

Back in January, the band had teased that there was a lot of good news for fans coming up within the new year. Sadly, within the same post, they revealed that longtime guitarist and backing vocalist, Micah Carli had left the group. Six month prior to Carli’s departure, longtime drummer Eron Bucciarelli also left the band.

Hurt is the final chapter of the group’s EP trilogy which included 2011’s Hate and 2012’s Hope. Hurt is set to be released on Sept. 18. Pre-orders are currently available on the band’s website with several different bundles to pick from.

This past summer, the band hit the road alongside Sleepwave and Extinction A.D. for From Autumn to Ashes reunion tour. As we all know, From Autumn To Ashes left the tour due to a “personal emergency” while Hawthorn Heights, Sleepwave, and Extinction A.D. continued on the trek.
