Tonight Alive sign to Hopeless Records, unveil new song

Over the weekend, Hopeless Records had teased on social media that they would be signing a brand new band to their record label. On Monday (April 3), the record label confirmed that Australian group, Tonight Alive, would be the newest addition to their family. “So excited to welcome Tonight Alive to the Hopeless fam!” said the record label’s official Twitter account.

In addition to their new home at Hopeless, Tonight Alive also unleashed a brand new song. Heading over to Daniel P. Carter’s BBC 1 Radio show, the group premiered their new tune, “World Away.” “‘World Away’ is a continuation of our quest for self understanding and empowerment, but this time through developing a personal relationship with darkness,” vocalist Jenna McDougall said in a statement.

She continues: “In a society that conditions us to suppress and shy away from confronting emotions, we wrote an invitation in ‘World Away’ to shake hands with what scares us most and begin recognizing the opportunity for growth in struggle.” The official music video for “World Away” which was directed by Megan Thompson can be seen above.

Currently, there is word on whether “World Away” will be featured on Tonight Alive’s upcoming new album. According to a press release from the band, they will hit the studio later this summer to record the follow-up to 2016’s Limitless. This new album will mark Tonight Alive’s first record with Hopeless; their previous three albums were released through Fearless Records.

All Time Low releases new song, sign with Fueled By Ramen

Over the past week, the guys from All Time Low had been posting cryptic, short clips on social media. When the random clips began to be shared across all the band’s social media platforms, fans knew that something was brewing, but they just weren’t sure what it meant. Now, after days of waiting, the four-piece has unveiled what all the messages meant. On Friday (Feb. 17), the Baltimore-based band released a brand new song; their first in almost two years. The new track, the first since 2015’s Future Hearts, is titled “Dirty Laundry” and can be streamed above.

Prior to the Friday morning reveal, frontman Alex Gaskarth sat down with Alternative Press to discuss the direction of the new song. According to Gaskarth, “Dirty Laundry” is supposed to be like a reset button on the band’s sound. He compares it to 2012’s Don’t Panic in that regard saying that they want to change their sound a bit and keep pushing the envelope.

“When we put out Don’t Panic, we hit the reset button on the band, and we started looking at Don’t Panic as if it was our first record out of the gate as a more realized version of All Time Low,” Gaskarth explains to the publication.

“Then [there was] Future Hearts, and that felt like we started pushing the envelope forward and trying to expand the sound and grow. ‘Dirty Laundry’ is a continuation of that. It’s taking the idea from the last album and continuing to push it forward and explore new things.” To read Gaskarth’s full interview, head on over to Alternative Press‘ website here.

As if releasing a brand new, different sounding song wasn’t enough to satisfy fans, the band also announced that they had left their longtime home of Hopeless Records for Fueled By Ramen. Every album, with the except of their debut and Dirty Work, has been released through Hopeless Records. Int hat same interview, Garskath reveals that when they were first starting, they actually performed for the Fueled by Ramen.

“It’s pretty crazy, actually, because the first label we ever showcased for was Fueled By Ramen when they were down in Florida, so signing with them now was 10 or 11 years in the making,” continues the singer. “What we’re really grateful [for] is they’re such a good family. We’ve always loved Fueled By Ramen, we’ve always been fans of the bands on the label.”

By joining the Fueled by Ramen family, all Time Low will be in good company counting bands like Panic! at the Disco, Twenty One Pilots, Paramore, 3OH!3, Young the Giant, and more as family members.

Sum 41 announce new album, ’13 Voices’


A month after announcing that they had joined the Hopeless Records family for their upcoming new album, Sum 41 has confirmed its release date and title. On Monday (June 6), the Canadian band announced that their sixth studio album will be titled 13 Voices and is set to be released on Oct. 7. This record marks the band’s first new record since 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder.

“I am really excited to be releasing an album after everything I’ve been through recently,” shares frontman Deryck Whibley. “This new music represents the journey I’ve been on throughout the process of making this record.”

“I had to fall in order to rise, and nothing feels better than to have something you love that you had to really fight for. I can honestly say that 13 Voices saved my life and I cannot wait to share it with all of you,” he adds.

Whibley began writing the new album back in 2014 after a four-month stay at the hospital stemming from liver and kidney failure. From the hospital bed, Whibley updated fans that this was an eye-opener for him and that the ordeal had inspired him to write new music. In between writing new music and launching a Pledge Music campaign to help fund the new tunes, the musician had to learn to redo everything.

“I had to learn how to do everything again-my motor skills, learning how to play guitar again… I couldn’t even walk at the time. It was really difficult, but at the same time if I didn’t have a record to make, I don’t think I would have recovered as quickly. Writing music gave me a purpose. I had to get better.”

More information such as pre-orders for the new album will come at a later date. For now, you can check out the album art for 13 Voices and the track listing which will feature ten new songs from the band.


1. “A Murder of Crows (You’re All Dead To Me)”
2. “Goddamn I’m Dead Again”
3. “Fake My Own Death”
4. “Breaking The Chain”
5. “There Will Be Blood”
6. “13 Voices”
7. “War”
8. “God Save Us All (Death to POP) ”
9. “The Fall And The Rise”
10. “Twisted By Design”

In support of the new record announcement, Sum 41 will hit the road this summer on the 2016 Vans Warped Tour. This marks Sum 41’s official comeback tour.

Sum 41 join Hopeless Records roster

Hopeless Records has added another band to their rapidly expanding roster. Last month, the Los Angeles-based record label announced that Emarosa would be joining their lineup which currently features bands like All Time Low, The Used, New Found Glory, and Taking Back Sunday. On Tuesday (May 10), the record label revealed that Sum 41 has now joined their family.

“It’s crazy to think that we started this band 20 years ago and so much has happened, and it all happened really fast,” frontman Deryck Whibley said. “When I look back at everything it still feels like it’s all so recent.”

“I think this a good thing because it still feels like there is still so much to do… which is why I am excited for a new album and to be releasing it with Hopeless Records.” Watch the band’s announcement about joining the Hopeless family below.

For fans of Sum 41, it does feel like everything happened recently. It was just two years ago that Whibley was admitted to the hospital after collapsing at his home. He was diagnosed with kidney and liver failure which he attributes to years of alcohol and substance abuse. Since being admitted to the hospital in 2014, things have looked up for the frontman.

He began writing music, regrouped with his former bandmates, started a crowd funding campaign for a new Sum 41 album, and will be hitting the road in less than a month for the 2016 Vans Warped Tour. While we now know who will be releasing the new album, there is still no confirmation on the title of it or the projected release date for it.

Yellowcard Enter Studio for New Album, Return to Hopeless Records


Good news Yellowcard fans; the band has officially begun working on their new studio album. If that wasn’t enough, the band has also revealed that they have returned home. Well, sort of. On Wednesday (Feb. 24), the California-based, but Florida-born band announced they would be returning to Hopeless Records for their untitled eighth full-length record.

In a message on Instagram, the band wrote: “It’s a huge honor to announce that we have started working on our 8th studio recording which will be released later this year on Hopeless Records. We couldn’t be more happy to be working with the Hopeless family again.”

The band’s return to Hopeless comes about two years after they decided not to resign with the label. Instead, they opted to sign with Razor & Tie Records (home of HIM, The Pretty Reckless, Chiodos) for their 2014 release, Lift a Sail. Currently, there is no official time frame for the release of the new album, though they do plan to have the album out some time this year. Check out the welcome back video below.

Watch the Wonder Years’ Video for “Cardinals”


Less than 12 hours after revealing a lot of news to their fans, The Wonder Years have unveiled the music video for the first single off of their fifth studio album.

Though we were given the album name (No Closer to Heaven), the release date (Sept. 4), the complete track list, and the cover art, the band had decided to keep the name of the first single a secret, but were kind enough to let everyone know it would be released at midnight.

Sadly, some of us were asleep, so it was good to know that the video was already available on the internet when we logged on this morning.

The lead single is titled “Cardinals” and the music video features frontman Dan Campbell carrying drummer Mike Kennedy down a suburban street lined with houses, towards an ambulance. But as they reach it, the ambulance pulls a troll move.

Wonder if it’s a metaphor for something?

Check out the music video for “Cardinals” below.

While the band’s new album doesn’t drop for another couple of months, were pretty sure some new tracks are going to start finding their way onto the band’s set list during the Vans Warped Tour.

It’s just a hunch, now that the cat is out of the bag.

The Wonder Years Announce Fifth Studio Album

In addition to the new song and its video, pre-orders for the record will go live at midnight as well.

What’s Eating Gilbert Prove “You’re the Most” with New Video


It’s been a couple of weeks since New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert announced his side band, What’s Eating Gilbert had officially signed with Hopeless Records and would be releasing their debut album, That New Sound You’re Looking For, later this summer.

Now, the WEG frontman has revealed the music video for the first single from the record, “You’re the Most.”

Like the group’s appearance, the video is set up to look like something straight out of the 1950s (think of Grease) with the clothes, appearance, record player in the bedroom, and of course, who can miss the picture of Elvis on the wall.

Check out the video below.

That New Sound You’re Looking For will be released on July 10 through Hopeless Records.

In support of the new album, What’s Eating Gilbert will be hitting the road with fellow Hopeless signee, Bayside’s Anthony Raneri for a month-long summer trek.

After that tour wraps, Gilbert will rejoin New Found Glory for their co-headlining tour with Yellowcard in the Fall.

Tour dates for What’s Eating Gilbert can be seen here while date for the New Found Glory/Yellowcard tour can be seen here.

Neck Deep Announce ‘Life’s Not Out to Get You’


If you’re a fan of Neck Deep, then today is a good Monday for you.

Earlier in the day, the U.K. based band revealed not only the name of their new album, the name of the lead single, the album art but also the release date for it.

Their second studio album will be titled Life’s Not Out to Get You and will be heading to a store (digital and physical) near you on Aug. 14 through Hopeless Records.

The first single off of the record will be titled “Can’t Kick Up The Roots” and is set to be released next Tuesday, May 12, the same day that pre-orders for the sophomore album begin.

Check out the album art below.


In a twist, Neck Deep’s album will be released towards the end of the Vans Warped Tour which they will be on for the complete Summer, unlike many of the band’s on the traveling rock show who will be releasing their respective records towards the beginning.

Life’s Not Out to Get You is the follow-up to 2014’s Wishful Thinking and is being produced by Andrew Wade and Jeremy McKinnon from A Day to Remember.
