A Day to Remember return with ‘Resentment’

We may not have A Day to Remember’s new studio album in our hands yet, but they’re giving us a little something to hold us until then.

On Friday (Nov. 22), the Florida-founded band unleashed another new song from their forthcoming record. Titled “Resentment,” the track finds the band channeling their old sound with its poppy verses and screaming chorus.

You know, the same sound that took them from performing in small venues to headlining massive music festivals.

Listen to “Resentment” above.

“Resentment” will join previously received (and lukewarmly received) single “Degenerates” on the group’s seventh studio record, You’re Welcome.

Initially set for a Nov. 15 release date through their new home of Fueled By Ramen, the album will now see an early 2020 release time frame. The band made the disheartening announcement in early November.

“A couple months back we announced we’d be releasing our album Nov 15th,” wrote the band in their public statement.

“It’s taken a little longer than expected, and we just aren’t done with it yet. So we are moving this to early 2020. Rest assured, there’s a lot of new music coming out very soon, and we can’t wait to share it with you.”

The five-piece is currently at the tail-end of their “Degenerates” North American tour with newly Grammy-nominated I Prevail and Beartooth.

Tonight, all three acts will play the Nashville Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, and tomorrow, the final show of the outing will take place at the Crown Theater in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Emarosa are ‘Ready to Love’ on their latest standalone single

Emarosa is back to tell you they’re ready for love.

On Monday (Nov. 18), the Kentucky-founded band unleashed a brand new song, the first since the February release of their current album, Peach Club.

During a quick sit-down with Billboard, frontman Bradley Walden unveiled the inspiration behind the new track, and let’s just say, it’s very mature.

“‘Ready to Love’ is that bite that’s too hot. You know it’ll hurt, you know it’s not ready, but it takes that pain to learn your lesson,” the vocalist tells the publication.

“The older you get, the more self-aware you become about what you want for yourself and what you want in a partner. A lot of time can be wasted being with people out of loneliness. This song is a reflection of moving past that and knowing what you want, knowing your worth, and knowing what you are/are not ready for.”

Listen to “Ready to Love” above.

“Ready to Love” is the group’s first new track since the release of their fifth studio album, Peach Club. The studio effort not only marked their first release through their new home of Hopeless Records, but it also found the band shifting from their old screamy sound to new, 80s-inspired music.

Since its early 2019 release, Peach Club has produced several singles, including “Givin’ Up,” “Cautious,” “Don’t Cry,” and Walden’s tribute to his mother, “Get Back Up.”

In support of the album, Emarosa announced plans to embark on one last tour before the year ends. The new Peach Club tour dates include shows in Salt Lake City, Denver, Minneapolis, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Dallas, and more.

The 18-stop jaunt begins on Nov. 29 at Holy Drive in Sacramento and concludes in mid-December with a two-night engagement (Dec. 21 and 22) at the Moroccan in Los Angeles. At the time of publication, 15 out of the 18 shows have been classified as sold out.

“We’re performing Peach Club front to back,” Walden said in a press statement in July. “We’ve never done anything like this. It’ll be special.”

Neon Trees make their comeback with new single

Hello, and welcome back to the music world, Neon Trees!

On Thursday (Nov. 14), the Utah-founded band unleashed their much-anticipated comeback song “Used to Like.” The song’s premiere comes a week after the group had taken to social media to tease fans about the at-the-time-still-a-secret new tune.

“I like that our single is called ‘Used to Like,'” frontman Tyler Glenn said in a press statement.

“We’ve been gone for a minute, so we’re reminding our fans of what they liked about us. There’s something very pure about Neon Trees right now. I hope listeners hear the sincerity.”

And we do.

The almost three-and-a-half-minute track finds the foursome giving their electro-pop sound a little bit of an adult edge in the form of the lyrics which, after being a band for over a decade, maybe a hard thing to do.

Listen to “Used to Like” above.

“Used to Like” comes four years after the group decided to take a break from the music world and do their own thing. Even though the quartet was on a hiatus, they did manage to release two non-album singles, “Songs I Can’t Listen To” in 2015 and “Feel Good” in 2017.

During their time off, Glenn went out on his own and released his debut solo album, Excommunication. After that, the musician was given the opportunity to appear on Broadway in the now-closed production of “Kinky Boots.”

Neon Trees’ last studio album was 2014’s Pop Psychology, but it looks like we should expect some new tunes from the band in 2020.

Panic! at the Disco head ‘Into the Unknown’ with their ‘Frozen 2’ contribution

It’s time to take a trip with Panic! at the Disco and head into the unknown.

On Monday (Nov. 4), the Las Vegas-founded band unleashed the full version of their “Frozen 2” soundtrack contribution, “Into the Unknown.” Originally performed by the film’s star Idina Menzel (aka Queen Elsa), this version is unmistakably Panic! at the Disco.

It’s definitely a Panic! song with frontman Brendon Urie’s easily recognizable vocals, those horns, and you can’t forget the collection of “ah ah ahs” that have become a staple throughout the last couple of Panic! at the Disco records.

Check out the lyric video for the song above.

The original version of “Into the Unknown” was featured in one of the first trailers released for the much-anticipated sequel.

Panic! at the Disco joins the movie’s stars Menzel (Elsa), Kristen Bell (Anna), Josh Gad (Olaf), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff), and newcomer Evan Rachel Wood (Iduna) as well as Weezer, and Kacey Musgraves on the upcoming film’s soundtrack.

Oscar-award winning duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez return to their post as the writers for the original songs while Christophe Beck will provide the original score for the highly-anticipated sequel.

The “Frozen 2” soundtrack is due out Nov. 15 thought Walt Disney Records. The record will be released a week before the film’s theatrical debut on Nov. 22 (just in time for Thanksgiving). Pre-orders for the soundtrack are currently available for purchase.

Tickets for “Frozen 2” are now on sale.

Listen: Coldplay return with ‘Arabesque,’ ‘Orphans’

It looks like the joke is on all of us because Coldplay just released not one, but two new songs from their forthcoming studio album.

On Thursday (Oct. 24), just a few hours after the tracklisting for their eighth studio album was released, the group premiered two songs from Everyday Life. The first track is titled “Arabesque” and is featured on Sunrise while the second song is titled “Orphans” and can be found on Sunset.

Both tracks were produced by The Dream Team. “Arabesque” features vocals from Stromae and horns by Femi Kuti and his band.

“Arabesque” can be streamed above while “Orphans” can be found here.

A 7-inch vinyl featuring both tracks is currently available for purchase through Third Man Records.

To coincide with the release of the two singles, Coldplay has also announced that the official music video for “Orphans” will be released tomorrow (Oct. 25) at 8 a.m. EST, so keep an eye out for that.

Everyday Life is the long-awaited follow-up to the group’s smash 2015 record, A Head Full of Dreams. Since then, they have released several EPs, including Kaleidoscope and Live in Buenos Aires.

Everyday Life is due out Nov. 22 through Parlophone / Atlantic Records. Pre-orders are currently available for purchase and include several bundles to pick from, including CDs, vinyls, cassettes, and digital formats. The double record will reportedly have a runtime of 53 minutes.

Before releasing the much-anticipated record, Coldplay will take the stage at “Saturday Night Live” for the sixth time. The quartet will take over the sketch comedy show’s stage on Nov. 2.

The 1975 have a ‘Frail State of Mind’ on their new song

Ask and you shall receive…especially if you’re part of the 1975’s fan club.

On Thursday (Oct. 24), the English band unleashed another new song from their forthcoming studio album. Titled “Frail State of Mind,” the almost-four-minute track finds the group going back to their usual sound; a departure from the record’s hard-rocking lead single “People.”

Let’s just say you can definitely find hints of A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships single “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” in “Frail State of Mind.”

As usual, the act premiered the song on Zane Lowe’s Apple Radio Beats 1 show.

Listen to the new tune above.

“Frail State of Mind” joins “People” and “The 1975” (which features a monologue from 16-year-old climate change activist and current BAMF Greta Thunberg) on the quartet’s upcoming fourth studio album.

Note on a Conditional Form is the long-awaited companion album to 2018’s A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships. Note on a Conditional Form is due out Feb. 21, 2020, through Dirty Hit / Interscope. Pre-orders are available for purchase here.

In August, the group was confirmed as one of the headliners for this year’s 104.3 The Shark’s Riptide Music Festival. The 1975 join The Killers, the Revivalists, Judah & the Lion, Catfish and the Bottleman, Jimmy Eat World, and more on this year’s roster.

Around the time of their Riptide appearance, the group will be in the middle of a short North American outing. The tour begins on Nov. 16 with a two-night engagement at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, and concludes on Dec. 13 at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum in Indianapolis.

After a short time off, it’s back to work, with a European tour that will find them hitting up several countries throughout February and March 2020.

Ice Nine Kills go back to Craven Lane on ‘Your Number’s Up’

“Do you like scary movies?”

If your answer is no, then are you even a real Ice Nine Kills fan?

We’re sorry, but we digress.

On Friday (Oct. 18), the Massachusetts-founded band unleashed their brand new track “Your Number’s Up.” The song is the long-awaited “Scream”-inspired tune the group has been teasing for some time.

The lyric video begins with a news broadcast with the anchor recounting the story of a cold case that was heated up after a recording was found. The clip goes on to feature a recorder playing the audio (aka the song) as the transcript (aka the lyrics) of the conversation displays on the screen.

Now for all of you keeping score on how all the Silver Scream videos are connected, we’ve got you covered.

On the lower-left corner of the screen, a breaking news graphic shows a bulletin about seven campers found at a Texas Campground. If that rings a bell, it’s because it’s the premise of the “Thank God It’s Friday” music video; the same video that was teased at the end of acoustic “Stabbing in the Dark” clip earlier this month.

You see. It’s all connected and not just by Spencer being the killer.

In true Ice Nine Kills fashion, it’s quite a theatrical track with orchestration by Francesco Ferrin and guest vocals by Sarah J. Bartholomew.

Watch the lyric video for “Your Number’s Up” above.

“Your Number’s Up” will be featured on Ice Nine Kills’ The Silver Scream re-issue. The Silver Scream (FINAL CUT) is due out next Friday, Oct. 25, just in time for all your Halloween get-togethers.

In addition to this new “Scream”-inspired track, Final Cut will include all 13 previously released tracks as well as a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

Pre-orders are still available for purchase.

In support of the re-released work, Ice Nine Kills previously announced a set of fall tour dates. The “Octane Accelerator” tour begins on Oct. 29 at the House of Blues in Cleveland and concludes a little over a month later on Dec. 1 at Webster Hall in New York.

The full list of dates can be found here.

WhoHurtYou return with ‘Not the One’

WhoHurtYou is back with another tune to break your tiny little hearts.

On Friday (Oct. 18), the Jack Barakat and Kevin Fisher act released the third single off their upcoming EP. Titled “Not the One,” the duo reveals that the song is about not giving yourself enough time to heal from a past relationship before launching headlong into another one.

“‘Not the One’ is a song about rushing into intimacy with new people shortly after a breakup,” the duo share.

“It’s about spreading yourself too thin by moving on sooner than you should, all while wondering if your ex is doing the same. It’s a reminder to be true to yourself and take the time you need to heal.”

Listen to “Not the One” above.

“Not the One” will join previously released tracks “Wish We Never Met” and “Nobody Wins” on their debut record, Stages. The five-song album is due out Nov. 1 through Fueled By Ramen.

In support of the new set of tracks, the twosome recently announced that they will make their live debut at the Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles on Nov. 26.

After gracing the stage at the Moroccan Lounge, the duo will open for the Maine on two of their Southern California shows; House of Blues in Anaheim on Nov. 27 and The Observatory in San Diego on Nov. 29.

WhoHurtYou’s complete tour itinerary —and information about the album— can be found on their website.

Simple Plan, State Champs, and We the Kings join forces for ‘Where I Belong’

Is it true that bands that play together stay together? Well, it looks like that may be the case when it comes to the guys in Simple Plan, State Champs, and We the Kings.

On Friday (Oct. 11), the three groups (and soon-to-be tour mates) unleashed their collaborative new song “Where I Belong.” Taking inspiration from all three bands’ sound, the three-minute tune gives us some of that summertime/Vans Warped Tour vibes with pop-punky goodness.

Listen to “Where I Belong” above.

The song comes a day after all three bands had one job: to break some “super important news.

The first to get enlisted were the guys from Simple Plan. Sadly, every single member was busy doing something that needed their “undivided attention (hi David, it’s great to see you’re back and busy eating a banana).

When they finally had a moment to break the news, they had to head on stage for a show. Instead, they decided to leave the job to the guys in State Champs.

Like the dudes in Simple Plan, State Champs were also a little preoccupied. We understand entirely as building trust with a judgmental kitten and documentaries are super important.

Like Simple Plan before, the guys in State Champs left the job to the guys in We the Kings. Frontman Travis Clark was the one to answer the call, but like everyone before, something went wrong. First, it was a collection letter from the toll pass (we’re assuming this is Florida, so SunPass). Then it was a letter from his daughters’ school.

After asking his wife where the “super important announcement” document is, he opens it only to find out his kids got to it first. What can you do?

Watch all three failed attempts here, here, and here.

The three acts are set to hit the road later this month. The joint trek kicks off on Oct. 29 at the National in Richmond, Virginia and wraps up on Nov. 24 at the Fillmore in San Francisco. The full list of tour dates can be seen below.
