New Found Glory announces ’20 Years of Pop-Punk’ tour

image

On Wednesday (Dec. 7), New Found Glory began to post their past album’s cover art on social media which was met with some confusion over what it meant. On Thursday (Dec. 8), the Florida-founded band clarified what the posts meant when they announced a massive 20th anniversary tour. To celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band, New Found Glory will hit the road in mid-2017 to honor the major moment.

The tour which has been named the “20 Years of Pop-Punk” tour is set to kick off on March 22 at the Soundstage in Baltimore and  wrap up a month and a half later on May 12 at Revolution Live in the band’s hometown(ish) of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. During the excursion, the band will play selected albums in full. Those records include everything from 1999’s Nothing Gold Can Stay to 2009’s Not Without A Fight.

“‘You’ll never get anywhere,’ ‘sophomore slump,’ ‘It’s a trend that will pass,’ ‘your ship will sink.’ Well it’s been 20 years. Wondering what the voices say now?” the band’s post on their website reads.  “Luckily there was and still is only two voices we listen to. The passion inside of us and our loyal fans! This tour is for both. We can’t wait to play through all our albums recorded before 2010 and revisit some venues across the U.S. that we have great memories playing at. Thank you for all the years of love and support. Somehow it still feels like the beginning!”

The massive 20th anniversary tour comes after the band announced that their 2017 would include a brand new album. Their last album, Resurrection, was released in 2014 with a re-issue titled Resurrection: Ascension debuting almost a year later in 2015.

For now, the complete tour schedule for the “20 Years of Pop-Punk” tour can be seen below as well as the official poster for the trek which shows which albums will be played where.

The Matches to Celebrate Tenth Anniversary of ‘Decomposer’

image

The Matches celebrated the tenth anniversary of their breakout record, E. Von Dahl Killed the Locals back in 2014 with a couple of shows in honor of the momentous occasion. Now, it appears like the band is planning to once again celebrate another momentous occasion. On Monday (Feb. 1), the California band announced that they will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of their second album, Decomposer. Though the record will official turn ten in September, the band has decided to do four shows in four different United States cities in June.

The first show will take place on June 4 at the Metro in Chicago. The second show will happen on June 10 at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles. The third show will take place on June 17 at The Masquerade in Atlanta while the final show will happen at New York City’s Irving Plaza on June 18. Tickets for the four shows will go on sale this upcoming weekend.

DECOMPOSER TENTH ANNIVERSARY SHOWS:
June 4 – Chicago, IL @ Metro
June 10 – Los Angeles, CA @ Teragram Ballroom
June 17 – Atlanta, GA @ The Masquerade
June 18 – New York, NY @ Irving Plaza

While the band has been highly inactive for several years, they did give fans some hope with some new music recently. Last year, they released two new songs, “Life Of A Match” and “The Crucial Comeback (Mary Claire).” Both tracks marked the band’s first set of new songs since 2008’s A Band in Hope. Maybe 2016 will have the band finally release a follow-up to the 2008 release, after all, it is only February. Besides, they did advise fans to “standby” back in September.

The Spill Canvas recently revealed they would be heading out on tour later this year to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their album, One Fell Swoop.

The Spill Canvas Announce ‘One Fell Swoop’ Anniversary Tour

image

This August, the Spill Canvas’ sophomore album, One Fell Swoop, will officially turn ten and in honor of the momentous occasion, the band have decided to head out on their own tenth anniversary tour.

“It’s so unbelievable to me that ten years later, we’re still able to call this dream we had our jobs,” said Spill Canvas frontman Nick Thomas.

“We’re grateful and honored to be able to play our fans an album front to back that means just as much to us as it does to many of you. It’s been such a long time since we’ve played some of these songs, and even longer for the few we’ve never even played live before. We’re beyond excited to get back out on the road, and hope to see you at a show.”

The almost month-long trek will begin on Aug. 5 at the Larmier Lounge in Denver and wrap up on Aug. 23 at The Middle East (Upstairs) in Boston. The band will welcome the Press War onto the trek about half way through the journey (at the Pinelands Music Festival in Millville, NJ, to be exact).

Pre-sales for the “One Fell Swoop Tenth Anniversary Tour” will begin this Friday, May 22.

In a twist, the South Dakota band is slated to head out on another tenth anniversary tour this Summer though it’s not theirs. Beginning on July 11, The Spill Canvas will be opening for Motion City Soundtrack on the second leg of their “Commit This to Memory Tenth Anniversary Tour.”

For now, check out the tour dates for the “One Fell Swoop Tenth Anniversary Tour” below and those dates with Motion City Soundtrack can be seen here.

Anniversary tours are all the rage now, but what happens when you take three bands who will be celebrating the big anniversaries of their “mainstream success” albums?

Atreyu Release Suspicious Teaser

image

Atreyu are up to something, but what exactly, we don’t know. It looks like the band have opted to leave their fans in the dark about that until an official announcement is made.

Suspiciously, a video was uploaded to the band’s official YouTube page the other day with nothing more than #atreyu as the title. What makes this even more of a suspicious teaser is the fact that like many of our favorite records, their album The Curse turns ten this year.

Though nothing has been said about the teaser or anything else for that matter, it might have something to do with that (we assume) because the band have been on hiatus since 2011 while their last album was 2009’s Congregation of the Damned.

Watch the teaser.

Listen to the ‘American Idiot’ Tribute Album Stream

greenday

Green Day’s American Idiot officially turns ten this year, alongside many of the album that helped some of us get through those awkward, difficult and often time depressing high school days. In honor of the album’s anniversary, Kerrang! revealed plans to have a tribute album released featuring artists such as You Me At Six, New Politics, 5 Seconds of Summer and many more covering the tracks from the hit album.

The full stream can be heard below as well as which band covered which song from the amazing 2004 record. The stream also features two bonus tracks, a cover of “Welcome to Paradise” and “Basket Case.” Kind of upset “Longview” wasn’t included, but beggars can’t be chooser, we assume.

AMERICAN IDIOT TRIBUTE ALBUM:

1. American Idiot – 5 Seconds Of Summer
2. Jesus Of Suburbia – Rise To Remain
3. Holiday – The Blackout
4. Boulevard Of Broken Dreams – Neck Deep
5. Are We The Waiting – You Me At Six
6. St. Jimmy – Bowling For Soup
7. Give Me Novacaine – Escape The Fate
8. She’s A Rebel – Falling In Reverse
9. Extraordinary Girl – Frank Iero
10. Letterbomb – LostAlone
11. Wake Me Up When September Ends – The Defiled
12. Homecoming – Lonely The Brave
13. Whatsername – New Politics
Bonus tracks
14. Welcome To Paradise – State Champs
15. Basket Case – The Swellers

The Offspring to Celebrate 20th Anniversary of ‘Smash’ in a Big Way

offspring

The Offspring may or may not be considered one of the godfathers of the punk-rock world, with their random appearances at festivals and concerts or just by putting out catchy tunes (cause they’re pretty fly for white guys). We can attest to that, the first and only time we saw the Offspring was at Warped Tour in 2005 and remember something about a word beginning with the letter “F” and ending in a “K.”

“It’s ‘FIRETRUCK,’ guys!”

But even though they have been in the game for such a long time, it might be surprising to find out that their hit album, Smash will be turning 20 this year. To this day, Smash has sold over 12 million copies and is still considered one of the best-selling independent records of all time.

In honor of the anniversary, the band have already announced plans to release a vinyl/CD reissue of it in August, but that’s not all. Today, an announcement was made, letting fans know that they still have it and will be hitting the road to celebrate the 20 year anniversary.

The tour will feature them performing Smash in its entirety, but once again, that is not where the surprises en. The Offspring will be joined on tour by Bad Religion and/or Pennywise as well as The Vandals, Stiff Little Fingers and Naked Raygun opening on certain dates.

A lot to take in in such a short time span.

And if that wasn’t enough news, a leaked press release shows that the band will be performing at a Chicago venue that is still TBA on September 12 meaning they will be performing at this year’s Chicago Riot Fest.

Yep. Offspring new overload.
