ROAM Announce Debut Album, Stream New Single

Over the weekend, United Kingdom-based band ROAM unveiled the music video for their brand new track, “Deadweight.” In addition to the new music which features Set Your Goal’s Matt Wilson, the band also confirmed some important information about their debut record. Their debut record will be titled Backbone and is set to be released on Jan. 22 through Hopeless Records.

“We always felt like an album had to really make a statement or it wasn’t worth doing. Production, sound, songwriting – everything needs to make a significant step up or it’s just another release, nothing special,” frontman Alex Adam explained to Kerrang! during a recent interview.

“There are a few songs on the album that we wouldn’t have been confident enough to write or put out as our younger selves. It took a lot of time for us to make that transition and I think Backbone is a word that signifies that. Doing something and being confident about it, despite any risk involved. It’s a lyric in one of the songs on the album and I think it resonates with what we felt we needed during the writing period.”

Check out the music which features the band go all army as they search for that person who left a negative comment on their music video.

Pre-orders for Backbone are currently available on iTunes. For those who pre-order the album, they will receive an instant download of “Deadweight.”

Knuckle Puck Premiere “Pretense”


With their debut album set to be released in a couple of weeks, Knuckle Puck have return with the third single off of the impending album, a track titled “Pretense.”

Instead of premiering the song themselves, like they did with the first two singles, the Illinois group decided to get a little help from their friends from across the pond at RockSound.

Check out the new song below.

“Pretense” will join previously released tracks “Disdain” and “True Contrite” on Copacetic. Copacetic is slated to hit stores on July 31 through Rise Records. Pre-orders for the record are currently ongoing on their website.

In support of the new album, Knuckle Puck is currently in the middle of the 2015 Vans Warped Tour. If you haven’t seen them, then you should, just keep an eye on their Instagram page because they like to post dummy-proof photos of where they’re merchandise tent is every stop. It’s kind of funny.

Knuckle Puck Show Us Their “Disdain”


A week after announcing the release of their full-length debut, Knuckle Puck have now released the music video for one of the track off the record, “Disdain.”

While talking to Alternative Press guitarist Kevin Maida had nothing but good things to say about director Max Moore and how his attention to detail worked well for the band.

“Filming with Max Moore for ‘Disdain’ was truly incredible. His attention to detail and range of creativity worked very well with us. We could not be more excited to finally show people what the next chapter of our band will sound like with the new album.”

Check out the music video below.

“Disdain” will be featured on Copacetic which is set to be released on July 31 through Rise Records. In support of the impending release, the Illinois band will be performing on the Vans Warped Tour this Summer.

Knuckle Puck announced last week they were putting their complete discography up for grabs at Bandcamp for free with the only catch being fans would need to download the music before today (June 11).

Stream PVRIS’ Debut Album, ‘White Noise’


PVRIS (pronounced Paris), the up-and-coming Massachusetts-based band have garnered a lot of attention this year. Several publications have dubbed the trio a “2014 need to know” act which is not too shabby considering they hadn’t even released a full album yet (though they did have a few EPs there).

After signing with Rise/Velocity Records and releasing their first official track, “St. Patrick,” they’re popularity skyrocketed.

With help from Vans Warped Tour during the last two years (the Ernie Ball stage in 2013 and supporting gigs this year), their fan base seems to have double which is understandable with their catching music.

Now, the group will be releasing their debut album, White Noise next week which give fans the chance to hear a total of ten songs, three of which had already been unveiled.

Check out the new album below which includes “St. Patrick,” “My House,” and current single “White Noise.”

White Noise will be released next Tuesday, Nov. 4.

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness to Release Debut Record


Andrew McMahon might be in the midst of a small tour, but now the Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin frontman has revealed that his new act, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness will be releasing a debut record.

The album will be his self-titled record which will be released on October 14 through Vanguard Records. Aside from the release date, the singer has also unveiled the album art which is simply two people standing in front of a calm ocean.

Last month, the frontman released a song titled “Cecilia and the Satellite” as a tribute to his newborn daughter, Cecilia. Like stated before, McMahon is currently on tour, promising fans via Twitter that more dates will be sprouting soon, most likely in support of the new album.

After announcing the debut record, McMahon also thanks fans for joining him on his new journey and to keep an eye out for “more music, pre-orders, music videos and more coming soon!”
