Set It Off announce supporting acts for North American ‘Midnight’ world tour

Set It Off’s upcoming North American tour just got a whole lot better. On Monday (Dec. 17), the Florida-founded band announced the addition of two bands to their early 2019 tour. Australian pop punk band With Confidence and California quartet Super Whatevr will hit the road with Set It Off during the months of February and March.

Taking to Twitter, Set It Off made their official announcement: “We’re thrilled to announce that With Confidence and Super Whatevr will be joining us for The Midnight World Tour in North America!”

Titled the Midnight world tour — after their upcoming new album — the North American trek will find the bands performing in cities like Portland, Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Toronto, Baltimore, Atlanta, and more. The tour will begin on Feb. 15 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas and conclude a month and a half later on March 24 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA.

The tour is in support of Set It Off’s upcoming fourth studio album. Midnight is due out Feb. 1 through Fearless Records. The upcoming studio effort is the band’s first release via Fearless which they signed to earlier this year. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the band’s website.

Back in July, several months before confirming the new album, the quartet released a song titled “Killer in the Mirror.” At the time, fans believed the song was a one-off single, but as it turns out, the track is the album’s opening song.

Since then, the group has released an additional three songs from the forthcoming album; “Lonely Dance” (see above), “Dancing with the Devil” and “For You Forever.”

The band is also giving fans the opportunity to select which of the two new songs will get the music video treatment. All fans need to do is follow the instructions here.

Set It Off announce new album, early 2019 tour plans

If you’re a fan of Set It Off, then the band has a lot of good news coming your way. On Monday (Nov. 19), the Florida-founded act announced plans to release their brand new studio album in early 2019. Titled Midnight, the record is due out Feb. 1, 2019 via their new record label home of Fearless Records. Pre-orders for Midnight are currently available on the group’s website here.

Midnight is the follow-up to the band’s 2016 release, Upside Down. The record, the act’s fourth studio album, was produced by Mike Green whose resume includes Panic! at the Disco, State Champs, and Neck Deep.

In addition to the new album announcement, the four-piece also unleashed the music video for the record’s latest single, “Lonely Dance.

“Welcome to ‘Lonely Dance,’ the anthem of the introvert, where we can all be content and not feel like a freak for just wanting to stay inside where we feel at home. We’re really excited about this song and the music video accompanied with it,” explains Set It Off frontman Cody Carson.

“It’s honestly my favorite music video of ours to date. As far as the concept, how can you get more isolated than space? It was an unbelievable experience to work on a set so intricate and beautiful as that spaceship and the team behind the camera were just amazing!”

Watch the music video for “Lonely Dance” above.

Back in July, several months before confirming the new album, the quartet released a song titled “Killer in the Mirror.” At the time, fans believed the song was a one-off single, but as it turns out, the track is the album’s opening song.

Coldplay to Release Sixth Studio Album

coldplay

Coldplay have revealed two good pieces of news to get their fans through their nasty Monday morning blues.

First, the band revealed a brand new single titled, “Magic.” Then they followed up the new single, by announcing that “Magic” will in fact be featured on their upcoming, sixth album, Ghost Stories.

Last week when they released “Midnight,” some people thought it was just another random new track that the band was dropping. Fans of the band, on the other hand, were hoping that it was just a sign that a new album was on its way. Those wishing for a new record, got what they wanted because Ghost Stories will be released on May 19 through the band’s longtime record label, Parlophone/Atlantic Records.

For those wanting to pre-order the album, they could do so now and get an instant download of the new single while a deluxe version of the album will be sold through Target which will feature three bonus tracks. The audio video for “Magic” can be heard below as well as the full track list for the upcoming record.

Ghost Stories will be the band’s first new album since 2011’s hit, Mylo Xyloto. Last year, the band released a single song, “Atlas” which was featured on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack, earning them a few nominations for the track.

As for the band, Coldplay are set to headline the inaugural U.S. iTunes Festival on March 11 during South By Southwest in Austin. For those not able to make it to Austin, the show will be streamed live through the iTunes Store.

GHOST STORIES TRACK LIST:

1. Always In My Head
2. Magic
3. Ink
4. True Love
5. Midnight
6. Another’s Arms

Coldplay Release New Song

Coldplay

Today might be Tuesday, just a regular day, but for the music world it has been a day of new music and some artists pulling a Beyoncé move. Kid Cudi was the first to do this by releasing his new album Satellite Flight without anyone’s knowledge.

And then Coldplay came along.

Coldplay revealed a brand new track earlier in the day; their first new track since “Atlas” from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack last Summer. The new track, which can be seen in its official music video below, is titled “Midnight” and has a little bit of a Bon Iver feel to it.

No other information has been given about the song or whether it will be featured on a new album for the band or a compilation or even a soundtrack like “Atlas” was. But fans of the British band can only hope that a new album is coming together in secret since their last album was 2011’s hit album, Mylo Xyloto.
