Walk the Moon get creepy with ‘Lose You Again’

Walk the Moon are closing out the week by giving fans a brand new song. On Friday (Aug. 23), the Ohio-founded band unleashed their third new song of the year, “Lose You Again.’

The tune comes days after the four-piece began teasing new music on social media. Each day, short clips of each band member performing a snippet of the new song would appear on their official social media account.

In a post about the song, the band reveals that “‘Lose You Again’ came from somewhere between our dreams & our nightmares.”

They also revealed that the song came together with the help of BRÅVES.

“The song is a hybrid creation with our brothers, the enigmatic BRÅVES.”

The three-and-a-half-minute clip finds frontman Nick Petricca sitting on a bed, in a dark room surrounded by a notebook, pen, keyboard, and a small flashlight. Randomly, sneaky hands start to appear from the shadows, pushing and pulling him in different directions. We’re not sure if they’re trying to inspire him to write this new song or freak him the hell out.

Watch the dark and creepy video for “Lose You Again” above. “Lose You Again” is available for streaming and purchase here.

“Lose You Again is the Walk the Moon’s third standalone single of the year. In January, they premiered their radio smash “Timebomb” and then followed it up a few months later with “Eat Your Heart Out.”

At the moment, it appears that all these songs are standalone singles, but anything can happen within the next couple of months. “Timebomb,” “Eat Your Heart Out,” and “Lose You Again” are Walk the Moon’s first new set of tunes since the release of their fourth studio album, What If Nothing.

Incubus channel ‘The Lost Boys’ for ‘Into the Summer’

Just as summer is about to wrap up, Incubus has returned with a brand new tune.

On Friday (Aug. 23), the California-founded band unleashed their first new song in two years. Titled “Into the Summer,” the tune does not sound like the Incubus we know and love at first, but the second the vocals begin, it is unmistakably Brandon Boyd’s voice flowing through the speakers.

To coincide with the song’s release, the band unveiled the cinematic music video for the track. The premise of the video is simple: new kid moves to a new town. Catches the eye of the leader of the “wrong group.” Becomes part of the group who turn out to be vampires. Becomes a vampire. Realizes they’re no good and kills them all (save for the girl).

If you’re saying to yourself that it sounds a  lot like the premise of “The Lost Boys,” then you’re not wrong. It looks like the band was inspired by the 1987 smash hit. Watch the Frank Borin-directed clip above.

No word on whether this is a standalone single or part of a full record. Incubus’ last studio record was 2017’s 8.

Incubus recently made headlines when they announced a massive partnership with ADA Worldwide.

The partnership, in conjunction with the band’s record label, will include support in sales, distribution, radio promotion, marketing, publicity, digital strategy, and sync licensing in the United States.

“Incubus is beyond excited to be part of the ADA family, and we look forward to releasing new music with our new partners!” lead guitarist Mike Einziger said about the collaboration.

Earlier this year, Incubus announced plans to embark on a massive “20 Years of Make Yourself and Beyond” tour. The lengthy outing will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the act’s third studio album, Make Yourself.

The 39-stop outing includes gigs in major cities such as San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati, Austin, Atlanta, and more.

The excursion kicks off on Sept. 13 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver and concludes almost three months later on Dec. 7 at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach. Dub Trio, Wild Belle, and Le Butcherettes will open for Incubus throughout the long jaunt.

Missy Elliott returns with ‘Iconology,’ drops first single

Missy Elliott is throwing it back with a surprise new EP. On Friday (Aug. 23), the iconic rapper dropped five new songs without a peep. Titled Iconology, the record features four new songs (“Throw it Back,” “Cool Off,” “Drip Demeanor,” and “Why I Still Love You”) and an acapella version of one of the new tunes.

Hours before unleashing the EP to the world, Missy made the announcement via social media.

“At midnight tonight I’m dropping a collection of new songs!” she wrote on Twitter.

“Let’s #ThrowItBack” to a time when music just felt good and made us want to dance.”

All the tracks on Iconology were produced by Missy as well as Timbaland and Wili Hendrix.

To coincide with the record’s release Missy also premiered the music video for the album’s first single “Throw it Back.” Watch the four-minute clip above.

Iconology is currently available on all digital streaming platforms.

Iconology features Missy’s first new set of tunes since 2005’s The Cookbook. While things have been quiet at Camp Missy Elliott over the last couple of years, it doesn’t mean she’s been entirely out of the spotlight. She’s recently joined forces with Ariana Grande on her Sweetener track “Borderline,” and Lizzo for her smash single “Tempo.”

IMTV recently announced that Missy will be presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the upcoming 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. The award will be presented during the live broadcast of the show on Monday, Aug. 26.

Because receiving a prestigious award isn’t enough, Missy also made history earlier this year as the first female hip-hop artist, and the third-ever rapper, to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

In addition to everything Missy has accomplished so far in 2019, she recently received an honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music. This makes her the first female rapper to receive an honorary doctorate from the prestigious institution.

As she signed in her Iconology announcement tweet, you can now call her Dr. Melissa “Missy” Elliott.

Lana Del Rey returns with a double dose of ‘Norman F**king Rockwell’ goodness

With a week left until the release of her much-anticipated follow-up to Lust for Life, Lana Del Rey is back with not one, but two music videos. On Thursday (Aug. 22), the New York-born songstress unveiled the music videos for “Fuck It I Love You” and “The Greatest.”

The first music video (“Fuck It I Love You”) finds the singer in different locations in what we assume is her beloved California. We watch Del Rey singing on stage in some grimy dive bar, painting in what looks to be a studio, catching some waves (and an impressive look at the Aurora Borealis), skateboarding with some girlfriends, and yes, even getting her Priscilla Presley on a small 1960’s-style television.

At around the four-minute mark, there is a clear distinction, letting the viewer know that we’re about to transition the second song (“The Greatest”).

“The Greatest” begins with footage of the coast and eventually the inside of that grimy dive bar. Del Rey is still on the microphone singing to a group of regulars going about their evening. The five-minute clip primarily features Del Rey walking around an industrial port and hanging out at the bar with the locals. Unlike “Fuck It I Love You,” the mood of “The Greatest” is not bright and bubbly like the former, but rather, darker and grungier.

Both music videos were directed by Rick Lee, who also directed Del Rey’s music videos from Lust for Life. Watch “Fuck It I Love You” and “The Greatest”

“Fuck It I Love You” and “The Greatest” are featured on Del Rey’s much-anticipated sixth studio album. Norman Fucking Rockwell is due out Aug. 30 through Interscope Records. Pre-orders are available for purchase here.

As previously revealed, Jack Antonoff, Rick Nowels, Zach Dawes, and Happy Perez are all listed as producers on the upcoming album.

How to Disappear,” “Venice Bitch,” “Mariners Apartment Complex,” and “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me…but I have it,” and her cover of Sublime’s massive hit “Doin’ Time.”

As if a new album wasn’t enough, Del Rey will also embark on a fall time tour. The short North American leg of the tour begins on Sept. 21 at the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York and concludes on Oct. 10 at the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre in San Diego. The full list of upcoming tour dates can be found here.

The 1975 trade their signature Brit-pop for a heavier sound in ‘People’

Wake up, people! We have some brand-spanking-new music from the 1975.

On Thursday (Aug. 22), following days of teasing, the British rock band unveiled their brand new song. Titled “People,” the latest track sounds completely unlike previous tracks with it’s harder and rougher sound and screaming vocals throughout its three-minute runtime.

Frontman Matty Healy previously said that their new album would sound different than its predecessor, and it if this song is any indication, then it’s holding true.

To coincide with the new song’s debut, the group also unleashed the music video for “People.” Directed by Healy, the clip finds the band at the center of a room surrounded by screens. On the screen, images and the lyrics of the new tune broadcast around the foursome. Check out the music video for “People” above.

“People” is the first official single off the act’s upcoming studio album Notes on a Conditional Form. The forthcoming record will reportedly see a release time frame of February 2020, something fans may not be too happy about. Note on a Conditional Form is the long-awaited companion album to 2018’s A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.

Last month, the quartet released their traditional self-titled track. The tracked featured a monologue from 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

Earlier this week, the 1975 were announced as one of many bands slated to take the stage at the 2019 incarnation of Riptide Music Festival. The 1975 join The Killers, the Revivalists, Judah & the Lion, Catfish and the Bottleman, and more on this year’s roster.

Around the time of their Riptide appearance, the group will be in the middle of a short North American outing.

The tour begins on Nov. 16 with a two-night engagement at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey and concludes on Nov. 24 at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa.

Charlie Puth goes ‘Fast and the Furious’ in ‘I Warned Myself’

Charlie Puth has been quiet for a bit, but things are about to change. On Wednesday (Aug. 21), the New York-born singer unleashed his first new song in over a year. Titled “I Warned Myself,” the tune was written by Puth and produced by the singer and Benny Blanco.

In conjunction with the new song’s premiere, Puth has also released the two-and-a-half-minute music video for the song. The clip features Puth in different scenarios including a desert, a soundstage with a model, inside a warehouse surrounded by women, and pulling off an incredibly-dangerous stunt by climbing onto the roof of a moving car and just standing on it as it goes.

Let’s just say that this music video could easily be an outtake from a “Fast and the Furious” film. Watch the Brendan Vaughan-directed video above.

“I Warned Myself” is Puth’s first new song since the release of his Grammy-nominated sophomore album Voicenotes. The album was released in 2018 and produced several hit singles including “Attention,” “How Long,” “The Way I Am,” and “Done for Me” featuring Kehlani.

While it’s taken almost a year for Puth to release new material, he’s been keeping busy behind the scenes. He recently provided his gifts for several artists including Katy Perry (“Small Talk”), 5 Seconds of Summer (“Easier”), Maroon 5 (“Lips on You”), Michael Bublé (“Love You Anymore”), and more.

As previously revealed, Puth will perform at the Midtown Music Festival in Georgia and a few weeks later headline the Palco Sunset stage at Rock in Rio on Oct. 5.

 

A Day to Remember drop new single, sign to Fueled By Ramen

It’s been a heck of a week for A Day to Remember, and the week has just started. On Tuesday (Aug. 20), the Florida-founded band unleashed a brand new song. Titled “Degenerate,” the song marks the second new tune they’ve released in 2019 (in June, they joined forces with Marshmello for their EDM/pop/rock mashup, “Rescue Me“).

Listen to “Degenerate” above.

While the new song made its worldwide debut during the early morning hours, A Day to Remember performed the song for the first time last night at their show in the Netherlands.

“This is a secret. We’re going to put out a brand new song tomorrow,” frontman Jeremy McKinnon tells an excited audience in a fan-shot video.

“[And] this absolutely against everything that we built this band to be because we used to go to show like this and when bands would play new songs we’d be ‘get to it buddy.’ I don’t know why, but if it’s cool with you, we’d like to play it for you. Is that cool?”

As it turns out, the new song was just the beginning for A Day to Remember. In a discreet blink-and-you’ll-miss-it move, the five-piece announced that they have joined the Fueled By Ramen family. The five-piece join Panic! at the Disco, All Time Low, Dashboard Confessional, Paramore, Twenty One Pilots, and more on the record label’s roster.

All this good news comes a few days before the band is set to take the main stage at Reading and Leeds in the United Kingdom. After headlining the weekend-long event, the group will return to the United States for the inaugural Self Help Fest Massachusetts which will take place on Sept. 7 at the Palladium in Worcester.

Following a handful of music festival gigs, the Ocala-founded act will kick off their “Degenerates” tour with I Prevail and Beartooth.

Atreyu plot fall time 20th-anniversary tour

It’s going to be 20 years since Atreyu’s inception, and now the group is ready to celebrate the only way they know how to; on the road with their fans. On Monday (Aug. 19), the California-founded band announced plans to embark on a fall time tour to celebrate their “China” anniversary.

The upcoming trek will find the group performing at venues across the United States throughout October and November. The tour will include stops in Dallas, Louisville, Pittsburgh, New Haven, Niagara Fall, St. Louis, Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, Colorado Springs, and more.

Singer Alex Varkatzas mirrors Saller: “It’s been a long, rewarding road and we are not slowing down anytime soon. We would like the help of our friends and supporters in picking the set they will see on this upcoming coming run with Whitechapel. We owe so much to the wonderful people who support and connect with us. We are very excited for these shows.”
