Brand New Debut “Sealed to Me” at L.A. Show

image

The week isn’t even over and Brand New has debuted another new song.

Last night, the Long Island band made their fans’ hearts stop when they debuted their third new song in the past two weeks.

The track which is titled “Sealed to Me” was performed for the first time at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

Before the show, it appears, they handed out piece of paper with the lyrics printed on it.

Of course, since we live in the digital age, several audience members were able to record footage of the performance and upload it for us to see.

In one of several videos available, we see and hear frontman Jesse Lacey tell the audience how hard it has been to write and record new music.

“You try and it doesn’t work. And then other times, you come back to it and try again it out again and you like it. And then a couple of weeks later, you hate the thing that you did,” said Lacey.

“We’re a real mess like that that’s why it takes us so long to write music.”

Check out the video below which features Lacey admitting how much of a pain he is to everyone including his wife and band before “Sealed to Me” begins.

Brand New’s “official new song in six years,” “Mene,” was released earlier this week as a free download. For those who missed the chance to get the track for free, it’s currently available on iTunes.

Watch the Coachella 2015 Live Stream

Coachella is about to kick off in a couple of hours (at 3:35 p.m. PDT) and sadly, not everyone who wanted to take the trip to California for the first weekend of the annual music festival was able to make it.

That’s where YouTube and their streaming comes in.

Like last year, the festival’s performance will be streamed live over the multimedia platform.

As much as we know you would like to be there in person, nothing beats watching it from the comfort of your nicely air-conditioned room even though, it would be awesome to be there in person.

Anyway, check out the list of performers, their times (everything is PDT), and what channel they will be performing on so you can plan accordingly.

Brand New Finally Premiere New Song

image

It feels like Brand New fans have been waiting forever for the band to release new material and after a six years wait, it’s finally happened.

During their show at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium last night (April 8), the Long Island band kicked off their set with a new track.

Some are reporting that the new song is titled “Don’t Feel Anything” which would seem plausible since the chorus does repeat those words over and over again.

Check out some fan shot videos of the show from several different angles.

The song’s debut comes on the heels of the band finally mailing out those The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me lyric booklets nine years after they were suppose to (we guess they were busy?).

Yesterday afternoon, Brand New fans went crazy when the band cleaned their Instagram account and relaunched it with a new promo photo of the band (as seen above) and a photo advising those attending upcoming shows that a second printing of the booklets will be at the shows and soon online.

Let’s hope this is not the end.

Watch Blink-182 Perform Live with Matt Skiba

image

With all the drama surrounding Blink-182 over the past month, it’s kind of surprise that the group have decided to forge on by replacing founding member Tom DeLonge with a new singer; but what are you going to do when there are contractually obligated shows you need to perform at?

Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, and now-singer Matt Skiba, made their debut as the newly revised Blink-182 at The Roxy last night (March 18). The gig was part warm-up, part introductory before the band hit the stage at Barker’s Musink Tattoo Convention and Music Festival in Orange County on Sunday (March 22).

The band’s setlist featured over 20 songs including songs like “Feeling This,” “What’s My Age Again?,” “The Rock Show,” “Carousel,” and “Dammit.”

Thanks to those in the audience, footage from the show was shot and can be viewed below.

Now, the question becomes, how do we feel about Skiba taking over for DeLonge?

Dropkick Murphys Give Impromptu Show at Airport

Imagine sitting in a boring airport, waiting for your flight to be called to begin boarding when all of a sudden, you hear some live music playing from down the corridor, but not just any music, upbeat music that you expect to hear at your neighborhood pub.

That’s what we imagine happened last night when the Dropkick Murphys decided to give some unsuspecting people in a Boston airport (Logan Airport) an impromptu concert.

The band, who have become synonymous with St. Patrick’s Day and all things Irish, were waiting to board a plane to where else, Dublin for their “Celtic Punk Invasion Tour,” when they decided to give those waiting an impromptu concert on St. Patty’s Eve, just a few hours after performing at Boston’s House of Blues.

Check out some passenger shot videos from the “show” and a tweet from the band about their decision.

Now, that’s one way to bring up the people’s moral after enduring TSA and waiting hours to board a stinking plane.

Enter Shikari Frontman Addresses Incident at Recent Show

Things did not turn out so good for Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds.

During a show at Plymouth Pyramids last Monday (Feb. 16), the frontman had decided to go into the crowd during “Radiate”/”Gandhi Mate” and something led to another and Reynolds punched someone in the crowd.

In a fanshot video, which only lasts five second and is really dark, you can kind of make out Reynolds punching said person.

Instead of letting the incident get a life of its own (even if it’s been over a week),Reynolds has taken to the web to clarify what went on and led to his decision to knock someone out.

Sadly, it’s something that has become a major problem at shows when band members go into the crowd or even when fans decided to jump on the stage. According to Reynolds, while he was in the dense crowd, some audience members decided to start pulling his pants down and feel his “undercarriage.”

He said he tried to get them to stop by being a “big man,” but that plan failed and led to what happened in the video.

Read his full statement below.

“Hi all, Rou here.

Just seen this video and in order to stop speculation just thought I’d clear up what happened.
After performing the end of ‘Radiate’ in the crowd some people behind me began trying to pull my trousers down . I tried to push them away a few times but due to the density of the crowd this didn’t work. It then progressed (perhaps fuelled by some sort of stubborn oneupmanship) and I began to have my buttocks and my… er, ‘undercarriage’ groped. At this point I spun round pretty shocked and intimidated and asked angrily if they “wanted a punch” – lighter approaches having not worked! – hoping his would stop it.

That seemed to do the opposite and gave them more vigour. I defy anyone to have their scrotum grabbed and not lash out instinctively…

Obviously violence is never the answer and I’m very unhappy personally with how I acted. I should have left the crowd and headed back to stage immediately when this started happening but due to the density of the crowd and the intensity of the situation things played out differently, I’m only human.

The rest of the show was thoroughly enjoyable and the audience overall were great. Everyone else we met before and after the show was absolutely lovely too. It’s a shame but obviously because of this incident I won’t be heading into densely packed crowds in the near future.

P.S. To address the “they paid to see you, so it doesn’t matter what they did…” argument; the ticket price for an Enter Shikari show doesn’t include free access to my gonads I’m afraid. You’re not a doctor. And I’m not a prostitute.

We appreciate & respect every single person that supports us and all we ask in return is respect back. The way this person/people acted was not respectful whatsoever.”

Watch the 2015 Grammy Awards Performances

After three and a half hours of sitting in front of a television, many people probably turned off the TV or changed the channel, we know we did at a few points.

For those who missed one of the many live performances that happened at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last night or just want to relive one of them, we have managed to get some of them together in one place.

Check them all out below.

Marilyn Manson Brings Special Guests on Stage at Show

Remember how in 2013, a group of pre-teens playing heavy metal on the streets of New York caught the attention of everyone around them, eventually resulting in them signing a $1.7 million contract last Summer with Sony?

Well, the boys of Unlocking the Truth are back in action, or at least in the headline for getting the chance to perform on stage with a big time rock musician (though they were discovered by Eric Clapton’s drummer, Steve Jordan).

During a recent stop on his “Hell Not Hallelujah” tour in Philadelphia, Marilyn Manson invited the trio to join him on stage to sing Manson’s 1996 hit song, “The Beautiful People.”

Though they weren’t on stage playing their instruments, they were given the change to sing alongside Manson on the track.

Check out the fan shot video below.

Manson is currently in the middle of the “Hell Not Hallelujah” tour which will funnily enough wraps up on Valentine’s Day at the House of Blues in Las Vegas.

As for the guys in Unlocking the Truth, it was revealed in December they will be heading to Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH during the weekend of May 15-17, 2015 for Columbus’ annual Rock on the Range music festival (you know, “where rock lives”).

Unlocking the Truth will be playing alongside greats like Slipknot, Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park, Judas Priest and of course Manson.

Katy Perry “Roars” the Audience to Life During Super Bowl Halftime

(USA TODAY Sports Images)

Katy Perry blew the retractable roof off of the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, AZ during her highly anticipated Super Bowl Halftime Show.

We might be a little bias with our opinion of the show, but it’s probably been one of the best from the past couple of years. With a setlist that covered some of her biggest hits including a special rendition of “I Kissed a Girl” with Lenny Kravitz and inviting Missy Elliot to the stadium grounds to perform some of her own songs, it’s was all around awesome and rocking.

Oh yeah, and there were fireworks, a floating comet, LED lights in beach balls and some palm tree, some killer visual effects on the grounds and beach balls and sharks with massive smiley faces (and an outfit that might become 2015’s Halloween costume).

Check out the performance below.

Fall Out Boy to Play at 2015 NHL All-Star Game

Fall Out Boy have been quite the busy band the last couple of days with the streaming release of their new album and unveiling of their amphitheater tour. Now comes word that the band who have become “sport music” staples with lead single “Centuries,” will be playing at a sporting event.

The National Hockey League have announced that Fall Out Boy and O.A.R. will be performing at the 2015 Honda NHL® All-Star Game slated to take place next Sunday, Jan. 25.

Fall Out Boy will play during the first intermission of the game, while O.A.R. will take over during the second intermission of the game.

As per the NHL’s press release, a “power-pop” group called Locksley will perform their song “The Whip” which is played during every Columbus Blue Jackets’ goal. This time, the song will be played to coincide with the NHL players’ introduction.

The All-Star Game will begin at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN, CBC and TVA Sports.
