Listen to Transit’s ‘Joyride’ in Full


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.

In support of the Joyride, Transit will be hitting the road with Such Gold and Driver Friendly. That tour will kick off today in Poughkeepsie, NY at The Loft at The Chance.

Bayside to Head Out on ‘Cults’ Tour in 2014


Bayside are ready to make 2014 their year and they have started just a few weeks short of the new year with news that they will be heading out on tour.

The band previously announced, after some cryptic pictures were posted on their Twitter account, that a new album which had been named Cults will be released on February 18, 2014.

In support of that new album, the band will be heading out on “The Great American Cult Tour” beginning in early March and will stretch all the way until early April; just four weeks, but a pretty good four weeks if your town happens to be on the schedule (our is!).

Also going along for the month-long “Cult” Tour are Four Year Strong, Daylight, and Mixtapes.
