Electric Century Confirm Release of Debut Album


After what feels like years of waiting, Electric Century will finally be releasing their debut album. On Wednesday (Feb. 24), Electric Century head-honcho, and former My Chemical Romance bassist, Mikey Way revealed the news. Joining forces with British music publication, Kerrang!, the musician released a video confirming the news.

Electric Century’s debut album will be titled For the Night to Control and will unofficially be released on March 9. In the same video, Way also announced that the electro-pop act will be giving away the new album in the March 9 edition of Kerrang! For more information on how to obtain the free album, you must check out the latest edition of the magazine, which also features an interview with Way.

When asked by the publication why he decided to release the album with the help of Kerrang!, the musician said: “We’re old friends. We have a really good rapport, I respect the magazine a great deal. You guys were one of the few magazines that we let into the bubble of my previous band. We were a little less guarded around you guys. And Kerrang!’s always done me solid. We have such an amazing relationship. When times were great, you had my back, and when times weren’t so great, you had my back. That’s really telling of a group of people – if they’re with you when times are tough.”

For the Night to Control will feature ten tracks including previously released songs “I Lied” and “Right There.” Back in January, the group had teased their social media followers by posting “2016 is THE year” on Twitter. The social media post came after the group pushed back the release of their debut album due to several personal issues. For now, check out the album cover and track list for For the Night to Control below

Fall Out Boy Announce ‘Make America Psycho Again’

What are you to do when you are about to embark on a brand new tour in a couple of months which will celebrate the one year anniversary of your recently released album? Simple, have the record remixed, and that’s exactly what Fall Out Boy is doing with American Beauty/American Psycho.

On Friday (Oct. 23), the Chicago band announced they would be releasing a remixed version of their latest album featuring some of their “favorite rappers.” “Got some of our favorite rappers to#MakeAmericaPsychoAgain new AB/AP remix album coming out 10/30,” the band wrote on Twitter.

The remixed record will feature all 11 tracks being remixed by various rappers including A$AP Ferg,  Juicy J, and former tourmate Wiz Khalifa. In addition to the announcement the band also released the first remixed song off of the record; “Irresistible.” Just last week, they released another redone version of the song featuring pop star Demi Lovato. This newer version finds the tempo of the song completely slowed down and Migos laying down some tracks. Listen to the song below and check out the track list for the album below.


1. “Irresistible” (feat. Migos)
2. “American Beauty/American Psycho” (feat. A$AP Ferg)
3. “Centuries” (feat. Juicy J)

This remixed album isn’t the first time Fall Out Boy has worked with rappers for their songs. For 2007’s Infinity on High, they got Jay-Z to do a spoken-word intro to “Thriller” and for 2013’s Save Rock and Roll, Big Sean was asked to come in and contribute to “The Mighty Fall.”

Make American Psycho Again will officially be released next Friday, Oct. 30, through DCD2/Island Record. Pre-orders are currently available on all digital media platforms.

Brand New Album Definitely in the Works


“Are Brand New really working on a new album? Will it be done by the year’s end? Are they just trolling their dedicated fan base? Come on Jesse, we need answers!”

If any of those questions and comments sounds like something you or a friend has said since early this year when Brand New debuted a couple of never-before-heard songs, then you are definitely part of the fan base waiting, impatiently, for the band’s follow-up to 2009’s Daisy.

For months now, there have been rumors that the band were working on new music to, hopefully, put out soon. Sadly, it seemed to be just that at the time; rumors.

Things changed earlier today when an interview with frontman Jesse Lacey was uploaded online. The interview, which coincides with the band’s show in Spain, was done by Spain-based publication, Rockzone.

In the interview, Lacey was asked the question everyone has been waiting for; is there new music?

Turns out, there is.

Considering the publication is written in Spanish, we attempted to translate the part where Lacey speaks about the “in-the-works” song.

“Yes, I don’t have a problem talking about that with you. You are the first with whom I have had an interview with in a long time. We have a new record to release. There is no secret. The thing is, it’s not ready, so to speak. We’re hoping to release it this year, at least that’s what we’re aiming for. We don’t know if it’s going to be an EP with seven songs or so, or a traditional EP of 14 songs. We have many songs we’ve worked on, but hey, I suppose at times you have to deal with what’s underneath and rest a little, like I told you before. It’s something we have to adapt to. One day, it looks like we’ll be ready to release it and then the next day, it feels like we’re further away from releasing it.”

Kind of reassuring to fans. We suppose.

Listen to Circa Survive Cover Nirvana


Nirvana made an impact on the music world and no one would deny that, especially the people behind Robotic Empire.

The label previously put out a vinyl of Nirvana covers titled In Utero: In Tribute which according to them sold out when it was released on Record Store Day last year. This Record Store Day, the label will once again be doing the same thing.

This year’s Nirvana compilation will be titled Whatever, Nevermind and will feature bands such as La Dispute, Torche, Touche Amore, and the band whose contribution can be qualified as the first single off the album, Circa Survive.

Circa got the task of covering Nirvana’s “Drain You,” which can be heard below.

In an interview with Alternative Press, Circa guitarist Brendan Ekstrom said the following about getting the chance to cover the iconic band.

“There are different ways to approach covering a band. For us, doing a Nirvana song takes us back to a very raw place that we were in when we were young and just falling in love with music. We didn’t want to say ‘here’s what this song would’ve sounded like if Circa wrote it.’ It was way more fun for us to live in their energy and pay homage to their influence by just rocking the shit out of it and keeping it raw.”

Whatever, Nevermind will be available on April 18 (Record Store Day) while pre-orders of the record are currently available on the label’s website.

Check out the full tracklist below.


01. Young Widows – Smells Like Teen Spirit
02. Torche – In Bloom
03. Kylesa – Come As You Are
04. Cave In – Breed
05. Boris – Lithium
06. La Dispute – Polly
07. White Reaper – Territorial Pissings
08. Circa Survive – Drain You
09. Touche Amore – Lounge Act
10. Wrong – Stay Away
11. Pygmy Lush – On A Plain
12. Nothing – Something In The Way
13. Thou – Endless, Nameless / Even In His Youth (Bonus Tracks)

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Soundtrack Artists Unmasked


While we will be the first to admit that we have read the Fifty Shades of Grey series (several times, we might add), we will also be the first to admit that the casting for the movie is not what we imagined nor are we that excited for it following all the publicity behind it.

One thing we are excited for is the soundtrack for the upcoming film.

Since the new version of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” made its debut during the first trailer for the film, we’ve been wondering what the soundtrack would sound like considering music plays a role in the book series.

Yesterday afternoon, the full tracklist for the soundtrack was unveiled and like we had already known, Beyoncé, The Weeknd, and Ellie Goulding are some of the artists on the list, but between Sia, Frank Sinatra, and The Rolling Stones you will find an interesting addition: Danny Elfman.

Yes, the man who voiced Jack Skellington and has written countless scores for Tim Burton will be contributing two scores for the soundtrack: one in honor of our main characters Ana and Christian, and another titled, “Did That Hurt?”


Check out the full tracklist below as well as The Weeknd and Ellie Goulding’s previously released songs.


1. “I Put A Spell On You (Fifty Shades of Grey)” – Annie Lennox
2. “Undiscovered” – Laura Welsh
3. “Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey)” – The Weeknd
4. “Meet Me In The Middle” – Jessie Ware
5. “Love Me Like You Do” – Ellie Goulding
6. “Haunted (Michael Diamond Remix)” – Beyoncé
7. “Salted Wound” – Sia
8. “Beast Of Burden” – The Rolling Stones
9. “I’m On Fire” – AWOLNATION
10. “Crazy In Love (2014 Remix)” – Beyoncé
11. “Witchcraft” – Frank Sinatra
12. “One Last Night” – Vaults
13. “Where You Belong” – The Weeknd
14. “I Know You” – Skylar Grey
15. “Ana And Christian” – Danny Elfman
16. “Did That Hurt?” – Danny Elfman

Fifty Shades of Grey will be released in theaters on Feb. 13, so get your girlfriends together and go see it for Galentine’s Day, we guess.

Man Overboard to Begin Recording New Album


It’s been over a year since Man Overboard released their last studio album, Heart Attack, and in a less than a week, the New Jersey-based band will be releasing a five song EP titled Passing Ends through their own record label, Lost Tape Collective.

In support of the EP’s release, the band sat down to speak with Alternative Press at their headquarters about everything that has been going on with them, including: postponing their UK Heart Attack tour due to vocalist/bassist Nik Bruzzese’s ACL surgery, the misfortune of their supporting act (Hostage Calm) disbanding, and if they think they will always refer to themselves as a pop-punk band.

With all that good information, one of the biggest pieces of information came when the band revealed that they were currently working on their fourth studio album already.

“We’re writing and demoing songs right now. We’re gonna go and record it next year,” guitarist Justin Collier said.

“We’re trying to do everything the way we used to as far as hanging out in Nik’s studio a lot which is how we started our band,” vocalist/guitarist Zac Eisenstein said.

“We’re just trying not to do anything different, but we’re getting stuff done [and that’s why I came here tonight]. We’re gonna work on some ideas. Without process, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

But for those across the pond who were worrying that Man Overboard won’t make it there next year for those postponed dates, don’t fret because the band confirmed that the will be finding an act to take the dearly departed Hostage Calm’s place.

“We’re going to replace Hostage Calm with another band; we don’t know who yet. Everything will come together,” Collier assured. Postponed tour dates can be seen below.
