Transit and Alternative Press teamed up to premiere one of Massachusetts band’s new song everyday for 12 days in support of the group’s second record. For the past 12 days, the publication has premiered a new song, and today the “12 Days of Transit” has come to a close with the final song, “Follow Me.”

But for those who have not been keeping a close eye (or is it ear?) to the music publication’s website, then don’t worry because the band have made the full album available on YouTube. All 12 new tracks from Joyride will be at the click of your finger as soon as you click on the little play button below.

Take a ‘High Dive’ with Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness


Andrew McMahon revealed his new project, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness back in July month as well as the first single “Cecilia and the Satellite” which he named after his daughter, Cecilia.

Today, McMahon and his new moniker have released another new song from his upcoming new record. The song is titled “High Dive” and is currently being streamed through BuzzFeed.

For those wanting to get your hands on the record, the album is currently up for pre-orders on iTunes. The self-titled album is set to be released on October 14 through Vanguard Records, just in time for his headlining tour.

In an interview with Buzzfeed, McMahon reveals the inspiration behind the new song and just like Cecilia, it’s a female close to him that inspired it in a way; his wife.

“When I found out I was ill, nearly 10 years ago now, my wife, then girlfriend, and I had just begun the process of reconciling after being separated,” said McMahon.

“We married in the midst of my recovery and left the beach towns where we grew up to hide out in Los Angeles. Moving back to the beach in 2011 began the process of closing the loop on that chapter of my life and forced me to revisit loose ends. In ‘High Dive’ I found myself asking the question, ‘if this wild disruption had never taken place what would that reconciliation have looked like? Would I be the guy driving by her house late at night, hoping to catch a glimpse of her, but knowing I couldn’t come in?’ In its most universal sense it’s about loving someone so much that you’ll take anything they’re willing to give even if it’s not enough.”

McMahon will be heading on the road in support of the new album alongside Junior Prom and Hunter Hunted. Tour dates for the upcoming fall shows can be seen below.

Weezer’s Upcoming New Album Pushed Back a Week, Reveal Track List


Weezer had fans excited for the release of their new album, produced once again by the Cars’ Ric Ocasek, but it turns out, the band have had to push back the release date of their tenth studio album; just a slight bump in the road.

In a post yesterday, which should have been another teaser as part of their “Weezer Wednesday” promotions, the band had to break that news that Everything Will Be Alright in the End would be released on October 7 rather than the original release date of September 30.

“We have to release EWBAITE one week later than planned, on Oct. 7” the band wrote on Facebook and their Tumblr. “This is a bummer and we really hate to make our fans wait longer. We worked very hard to finish the album on time for you, so we’re really sorry about this and hope you understand.”

Though it might have been something out of their control, one thing the band assured fans was that the recording sessions for the album were finished and better than that, the recording sessions were finished on time. This is the main reason we would like to believe that the prolonged wait was out of their control.

As a way to tide fans over for those extra seven days, the band promised fans who had already pre-ordered the record through that they will receive a new track from Everything Will Be Alright in the End on September 30 and they also unveiled the complete track list for EWBAITE. Check that out below.


1. “Ain’t Got Nobody”

2. “Back to the Shack”

3. “Eulogy for a Rock Band”

4. “Lonely Girl”

5. “I’ve Had It Up to Here”

6. “The British are Coming”

7. “Da Vinci”

8. “Go Away”

9. “Cleopatra”

10. “Foolish Father”

11. “The Futurescope Trilogy”

a. “The Wasteland”

b. “Anonymous”

c. “Return to Ithaca”

Not a bad consolation prize. We guess everything will really be alright in the end (like you didn’t expect that pun to happen).

The Foo Fighters Unveil New Album Info


After making fans waiting by their computer eagerly this morning, The Foo Fighters have unveiled the news that have had people waiting around the interweb; the title of their eighth studio album.

Last week, the band had fans do a scavenger hunt on the internet, finding pieces of a photo which revealed the eight cities the band headed to to record the new album.

At the times, all the clues were pointing at the band naming the record “Eight,” but then again, they probably led fans in that direction, on purpose, in order to surprise them with the real title of the record, Sonic Highways.

The album will now shared the same title as the band’s HBO mini-series which follows them as they record the upcoming album at eight different studios in eight different cities while also exploring the music world in those locations.

The mini-series is slated to premiere on October 17 while the record will hit shelves on November 10.

The track list for the record can also be seen below which, we shouldn’t be surprised, features eight tracks.

Now, the question is, which one of these tracks does the teaser we got on Friday with frontman Dave Grohl screaming “All Rise!” belong to?



Something From Nothing
The Feast and The Famine
What Did I Do?/God As My Witness
In The Clear
I Am A River

Happy 08/08 From the Foo Fighters


Big news reportedly will be coming our way on Monday on behalf of the Foo Fighters, but it looks like the band might have decided to be nice today and offer us a little teaser.

In honor of August 8th (08/08), the Foo Fighters have released an eight second clip of a new song which features frontman, Dave Grohl screaming “All Rise!”

Of course, we should note the theme of eight with an eight second teaser from their eighth studio album being released on 08/08. There are also those eight new songs that they recorded in eight cities which will be featured on their eight-episode special for HBO, Sonic Highways. And then, that internet scavenger hunt from earlier this week which included images from the cities they visited as well as the number, you guessed it, eight.


We’re going to take a shot in the dark and think that the number eight will have a more important role than just a so-called coincidence for the yet-to-be-titled album.

Check out the clip below and don’t forget to keep your eyes and ear open on Monday for more Foo Fighters news.

Weezer Have “Had It Up To Here”


Weezer Watch has been a little quiet over the last few weeks, after it was revealed that their new album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End will be out on September 30 through Republic Records.

Today, frontman Rivers Cuomo posted on Twitter a link to a YouTube video which offers fans a teaser for a new song titled, “I’ve Had It Up To Here.” As of now, the band have given teasers for several songs including “My Mystery,” “Return to Ithaca” and of course lead single, “Back to the Shack.”

Check out the teaser for the song which also happens to be the 14th update that the band have posted on behalf of their tenth studio album.

Everything Will Be Alright in the End was produced by The Cars’ Ric Ocasek who has had a pretty good history with Weezer. Ocasek, previously, produced the band’s Blue and Green Albums.

For those wanting to pre-order the album instead of waiting to get it in September can currently do so over at PledgeMusic.

Watch Weird Al’s Eight Music Videos in Eight Days


“Weird Al” Yankovic’s new album Mandatory Fun will reportedly take the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 and pretty much every other chart in the coming week. The record has already produced several songs which parody many of today’s biggest pop hits. As part of the promotion of the new album, Yankovic decided to release eight music videos in eight days and now we have the most of the videos.

In honor of the comedian taking the throne from other musical acts, we have put together all of the songs from the upcoming album that have been released in the last week so you can enjoy them this weekend and think about just how Yankovic has never had a number one album in the past and had to wait until 2014 to do so.

“TACKY” // Parody of Pharrell’s “HAPPY”:

“WORD CRIME”// Parody of Robin Thicke’s “BLURRED LINES”:

“FOIL”// Parody of Lorde’s “ROYALS”:

“HANDY” // Parody of Iggy Azalea’s “FANCY”:

“FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS” // Inspired by the Pixies:

“LAME CLAIM TO FAME” // Inspired by Southern Culture on the Skids’ “CAMEL WALK”

Adele to Release New Album Later This Year


It feels like it has been years since we last heard any new music from Adele, though we are internally glad they stopped playing “Someone Like You” on a never-ending loop on the radio.

In the meantime, the songstress gave birth to a baby boy and even hinted that she was working on some new music on a Twitter post a while back.

Now, we have gotten official confirmation that she will be releasing a new album titled, 25, keeping up with her age-titled records; her first two records were titled 19 and 21.

The World Music Awards announced the new of the new record’s titled and went on Twitter to confirm that Adele will embark on a tour in 2015. This news comes on the heels of another report in which the Daily Star said that she might just pull a Beyoncé and drop the record without any warning through iTunes.

Adele has enough fans and casual listeners alike, so it would not be that much of a stretch for her to just do that and cal it a day. When your album manages to hold the longest-running No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, you really don’t need all that useless promotions, especially when there’s a Phil Collins collaboration somewhere there.
