All Time Low address social issues with ‘Good Times’

Following several days of posts on social media about something big coming before the end of the week, All Time Low has kept their word. On Wednesday (Nov. 1), the Baltimore-based band unleashed the music video for their current single, “Good Times.” The four-minute-clip which was directed by Patrick Tracy begins with shots from the inside of a high school gymnasium after what appears to be a school dance. Blue and white balloons, blue streamers, a disco ball, and several chairs litter the gymnasium floor as evidence of a good time. The dimly lit shot transitions from the remnants of a fun evening to the everyday struggles of a group of high school students.

The viewer follows the everyday struggle of a group of teenagers who are individually going through different struggles. The viewer watches a girl being bullied by two of her classmates, a boy stuck inside of a house with feuding parents, two same-sex couples, a couple in an interracial relationship where one of their parents is not exactly thrilled by it, and a girl in a hijab getting things throw at her by a group of Confederate flag-totting boys.

While the video does show the struggle that each of the protagonists encounters, it also shows that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, even if it is just a high school dance.

“We are so proud of this video, of Pat who helped us bring it to life, the small glimpses into amazing lives we see within, and the beautiful, diverse people it represents,” frontman Alex Gaskarth said in a press release. “Always be exactly who you are, and don’t live in fear of someone else’s judgment. Be brave, be bold, and find your happiness in yourself and the ones you love.” Watch the music video for “Good Times” above.

“Good Times” is featured on All Time Low’s recently released record, Last Young Renegade. Last Young Renegade was released back in June and quickly landed at the number nine spot on Billboard‘s 200 chart selling 33,000 units in its first week.

In support of the album’s release, All Time Low has been touring around the world non-stop. Now that their non-stop touring schedule is coming to an end, the group will perform at a handful of radio station music festival throughout November. Once that mini tour comes to an end, the band will wrap up 2017 with three sold out shows at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey where they will celebrate the tenth anniversary of their debut album So Wrong, It’s Right.

Watch The Struts rock out and party in ‘One Night Only’

The Struts have been making a name for themselves over the past couple of years for not only their sound, but their epic live shows. On Tuesday (Oct. 24), the United Kingdom-based band unleashed their music video for their current single, “One Night Only.” The over-four-minute-long clip features the band performing in what at first looks like a stage, illuminated by a slot of bright and colorful lights as the camera seems to be zoomed in on each of the guys.

Listen to Weezer yearn for ‘Happy Hour’ in new song

With a little over a week left before their new album is officially out in the hands of the public, Weezer has unleashed yet another new track from it. On Wednesday (Oct. 18), the California-founded band unleashed “Happy Hour”; their fifth song from Pacific Daydream to be unveiled. The new song’s debut should not comes as much of a surprise since the band has previously teased that a new song would be released before the record hits stores.

“P.S. there might be one more song for you before the album’s out too. You’ll just have to wait and see,” posted the band on Twitter at the beginning of October. Listen to the group’s almost-three-minute song about their need for happy hour above.

“Happy Hour” will join “Feels Like Summer,” “Mexican Fender,” “Beach Boys,” and “Weekend Women” on their upcoming album, Pacific Daydream. Pacific Daydream is set to be released on Oct. 27 through Crush Music/Atlantic Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available here.

Silverstein, Tonight Alive to embark on ‘Get Free Tour’ in 2018

Now that 2017 is only a couple of months away from coming to an end, Silverstein has already confirmed plans to hit the road in early 2018. On Monday (Oct. 16), the Canadian band officially announced their first tour of the new year. The trek, which has been named “The Get Free Tour,” will kick off on Jan. 19, 2018 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio and wrap up about a month-and-a-half later on March 1, 2018 at Mr. Smalls in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Co-headlining the tour with Silverstein will be Australian outfit, Tonight Alive. Supporting both acts on the upcoming tour will be Virginia five-piece Broadside and Kentucky-founded Picturesque.

In addition to announcing their major tour with Tonight Alive, Silverstein has also released the music video for their latest single, “Lost Positives.” The music video for the song is very dark, but considering the lyrics for the song includes lines like “lying is letting you go” and “miserable script full of words that I won’t say,” it’s not surprising that the group decided to go in a darker direction. The almost-four-minute clip was directed by Wyatt Clough and Roger Galvez and can currently be seen above.

“Lost Positives” can be found on Silverstein’s recently released ninth studio album Dead Reflection. The record was released this past summer with the band touring behind it since it was formally announced. Silverstein isn’t the only band who will be promoting their new album on the upcoming tour.
