On Thursday (July 6), the Canadian band premiered “Whiplash”; the fourth song released from the group’s upcoming new album, Dead Reflection.

Listen to Fall Out Boy’s new tune ‘Champion’

After promising fans a brand new song off their upcoming album, Fall Out Boy has kept their promised and released their new tune. On Thursday (June 22), the Chicago-founded band released their second single off M A N I A, “Champion.” Earlier this month, bassist Pete Wentz took to Instagram to give fans a little bit of  background on the new jam. As it turns out, the tune was inspired by the 1984 fantasy-drama, “The Neverending Story.”

“I really started to think that this one really reminds me of this moment in ‘The Never-Ending Story.’ It always stuck out to me as a kid- first they’re like ‘wait you’re just a kid lol we need a warrior,'” wrote the musician on his social media page.  “Then they’re like ‘ok you’ll do I guess you’ll do’ and then ‘no one can help you and if you don’t do this our entire world dies, so no pressure.'” Listen to “Champion” here.

“Champion” will join lead single “Young and Menace” on Fall Out Boy’s upcoming seventh studio album. M A N I A is set to be released on Sept. 15 with pre-orders currently available on the band’s website here.

In support of the new album, Fall Out Boy previously announced a massive tour scheduled to take place later this year. The “M A N I A tour” will kick off on Oct. 20 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland and wrap up almost a month later on Nov. 18 at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Before embarking on their North American tour, Fall Out Boy has announced a special show that will be held at the House of Blues in the group’s hometown of Chicago on Sept. 16. Due to the size of the venue, the band has launched a Verified Fan registration to ensure that fans will first access to tickets. More information about that can be found on the band’s website.

In addition to the Verified Fan registration, the group has also revealed that $1 from every ticket sold will go towards the Fall Out Boy Fund. The band created the fund as a way to give back to charities in Chicago.

Listen to The Killers’ new funky song ‘The Man’

Less than a week after word spread that The Killers would be releasing a brand new song very soon and giving a teaser of it, the four-piece has finally unveiled the full version of the new track. On Wednesday (June 14), the LAs Vegas-based band unveiled the audio of their first new song in five years, Christmas songs excluded, “The Man.” Frontman Brandon Flowers headed over the Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show to premiered the song as the “Hottest Record.” During the interview that followed the upbeat tune, Flowers revealed that the new album, which has been confirmed to be titled Wonderful Wonderful, was produced by Jacknife Lee and Stuart Price, who Flowers has worked with in the past.

“We mostly did it with Jacknife and then we did one song that I wrote with Stuart. But it was great, it’s always nice to bring fresh blood in and Jacknife, we have never worked with before and he’s so  creative right now and he is so energetic and sometime, you need that.”

When asked by the DJ about how the new tune sounds, Flowers said the following: “Sonically, it’s pretty funky. Funkier than anything we’ve ever done before and I do hear things that remind me of quintessential Killers things and that starts with Mark’s [Stoermer] bass line, our bass player, has a prominent feature on this song and this is what he’s really great at.” To listen to the complete interview, head on over here.

Though an official release date has not been given for Wonderful Wonderful, the new album will be the group’s fifth studio album. Wonderful Wonderful is the Killers’ follow-up to 2012’s Battle Born. Last year, they released a compilation of their previously released Christmas song and named it Don’t Waste Your Wishes.

Listen: Broadside gets serious on ‘Laps Around a Picture Frame’

With a handful of days left until the release of their sophomore album, Broadside has released yet another new tune from the upcoming album. On Friday (June 9), the Virginia-based band unveiled the audio for their third single, “Laps Around a Picture Frame.” Unlike most of their other tunes, this one starts off with a surprise as the vocals are not those of vocalist Oliver Baxxter, but rather guitarist Dorian Cooke.

According to the group this was done on purpose to show two different people suffering from the same exact medical issue. “We wanted to capture two completely different humans having the exact same mental breakdown,” explains Cooke about the new song in a press release. “We wrote the music, lyrics, and arrangement around a panic attack in a crowded environment. Even the name is an exercise for panic attacks taught to me by a therapist. The persona I represent is of someone that’s on the higher end of the social spectrum – someone popular and beautiful on the outside, but has that constant struggle internally.”

Like Cooke, Baxxter portrays someone who also suffers from panic attacks, but unlike Cooke’s character, comes from another side of the social spectrum. “I portray a young female persona shaped by the harshness of her environment, which is a story shared with me by a close friend whenever she is in a public setting. I know it’s something much more common than people tend to show.” Listen to the new song above.

“Laps Around a Picture Frame” will join previously released tracks “Puzzle Pieces,” “Hidden Colors,” and “Paradise” on Broadside’s upcoming album, ParadiseParadise is set to be released this Friday, June 16, through Victory Record. Pre-orders are still available here. All pre-orders will include an instant download of “Puzzle Pieces.”

Last week, Broadside concluded their spring tour with Real Friends, Have Mercy, Tiny Moving Parts, and Nothing, Nowhere. Recently, the group announced a pair of music festivals gigs including Syke Fest which will take July 15 in their hometown of Richmond, Virginia as well as a headlining gig at the Sophomore Slump Fest in Greensboro, NC on Aug. 5.

All Time Low celebrates the ‘Good Times’ with final single

All Time Low’s new studio album, Last Young Renegade, is set to hit stores later this week, but that’s not stopping the group from releasing one final song from the impending release. On Wednesday (May 31), the Baltimore-based band unleashed their fifth and final single from the new album, “Good Times.” According to the band’s post on Twitter, this song was not only the first song to be written for the record, but it was also the one that set the whole tone for their seventh studio album.

“‘Good Times’ was the first song written for Last Young Renegade and it set the tone for the entire album,” reads the group’s post on their official Twitter account. Frontman Alex Gaskarth and guitarist Jack Barakat took to their own accounts to talk about the new tune as well.

“Alex sent me a demo of ‘Good Times’ 2 years ago. I called him and said this is the best song you’ve ever written,” wrote Barakat while Gaskarth kept it simple by writing “One of my favs ever.” Listen to “Good Times” here. According to the band, an official lyric video, which will feature fan-submitted artwork, will be released soon.

“Good Times” will join “Nice2KnoU,” “Life of the Party,” “Dirty Laundry,” and “Last Young Renegade” on the band’s upcoming album.

Ice Nine Kills drop their ‘Shining’ inspired new song

Back in March, Ice Nine Kills asked fans to decide which literary classic they would like the final chapter of their Every Trick in the Book era to be. The novels selected, according to vocalist Spencer Charnas, were the top two stories fans had repeatedly asked songs to be written about. The choices in the poll were Stephen King’s “The Shining” and Robert Bloch’s “Psycho.” As it turns out, the story about the Overlook Hotel’s winter caretaker and his downward spiral into madness as he, and his family, inhabit the notorious hotel came out victorious.

On Friday (May 26), the Massachusetts-founded band released the lyric video for their new song, “Enjoy Your Slay.” The over-four-minute clip features prominent images from the 1980 film as the backdrop for the “Shining” inspired lyrics. Watch the lyric video for “Enjoy Your Slay” above.

As if the images that are taken directly from the film and the song’s title weren’t enough of a nod to the classic, the new tune has another connection to the film. The special guest vocalist on the track is none other than [The Shining director] Stanley Kubrick’s grandson, Sam Kubrick. According to a press release from the band, Ice Nine Kills met Kubrick when they were touring alongside his band, the Shield. Being fans of Kubrick’s vocals, as well as his connection to the film, the band asked him to perform on the song.

“On our tour of the U.K. last fall, we became great friends with his [Kubrick’s] band Shields, whose technical prowess and dynamic songwriting blew us away. Being a big fan of their band and Sam’s vocals, we knew his inclusion on the song would provide a strong connection to the story’s legacy,” explains Charnas. “His performance undeniably adds a layer and depth to the composition that is truly chill inducing.”

But having images, a title, and a personal connection to the film wasn’t enough for the Boston four-piece. The band’s decision to release the new song towards the end of May just so happened to coincide with the 37th anniversary of the film’s release; The Shining was originally released in the United States on May 23, 1980. In addition to the film’s anniversary, King’s novel recently celebrated its 40th anniversary earlier this year. “Enjoy Your Slay” is currently available on iTunes and Spotify.
