The Matches Release ‘E. Von Dahl’ Live Album


The Matches celebrated the tenth anniversary of their breakthrough record E. Von Dahl Killed the Locals the only way that you should celebrate such an anniversary; by reuniting even if it was for one show.

The California-based band who went on hiatus in the Summer of 2009, started to post old photos under the hashtag #oldschoolmatches at the beginning of 2014 which left some scratching their heads and assuming they would be reuniting. Those speculating a reunion would be some what right.

Then, a few months later in May 2014, the band officially announced, via a video on YouTube that they would be doing a one-time reunion show at Slim’s in San Francisco, just for the tenth anniversary of their debut record.

Now, the band have released the recordings from the show as a live album titled, 10YearsEVDKTL.

The full stream of the album which features songs from the album as well as others, can be heard below.

The Wonder Years to Celebrate Tenth Anniversary with Three Hometown Shows


It might be hard to believe, but The Wonder Years will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of being a band in 2015. In honor of their anniversary, or birthday, the group have decided to celebrate by performing three anniversary shows.

Like Brand New did in the past, The Wonder Years have decided that they will be performing one of their three recent albums (The Upsides, Suburbia, I’ve Given You All and Now I’m Nothing and The Greatest Generation) in its entirety each night of the celebration.

The shows will all take place in their hometown of Philadelphia at Union Transfer on Feb. 6, 7, and 8.

Tickets for the show will go on sale this Friday, Nov. 14 at 10:00 am EST.

Check out the band’s lengthy (we aren’t kidding) thank you to the fans and their plan for their tenth including which show will get which album performed.

“Damn. Ten years…for a band that was never planning to play a show, there are a lot of things to write here.

Things that can be said, things that should be said – Is thank you enough? Words are never really going to put it into perspective because The Wonder Years as you know it was never a thing that was supposed to happen. We were going to hang out for a day, maybe write a song or two for fun and then move on with our post-high-school lives. We had other bands. We were going to college. We had plans, but plans change. I remember after our first weekend tour, Kennedy saying something like “What if this band gets signed and starts touring full time?” We all laughed at him. 

A few weeks ago, we got to stand in front of a crowd of 9,000 in Philadelphia and play songs we had written in basements and garages and places that were literally shut down for health code violations. It almost felt like we were crashing a party; like we didn’t belong where we were. It’s a feeling we’ve had a lot. We’re playing with people who are, for all intents and purposes; rock stars. I don’t mean that with any of the negative connotation it carries; I just don’t know what else you’d call Blink-182 or Metallica. These guys are rock stars and we’re the same idiots we’ve always been. We still feel closer to VFW Halls than we do arenas. I think we always will.

We’ve played 25 countries and 45 states. We had a record debut in the top 20 on Billboard’s Top 200 (albeit number 20. It still counts!), but some of our favorite memories are always going to be sleeping on strangers’ floors or lying about flat tires so that we could come to shows late after swimming in the ocean right off the highway.

So, we made it through ten unlikely years as a band and, god dammit, we’re going to celebrate. 

We booked three back-to-back-to-back nights at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. The first night, we’ll play “The Upsides”, straight through. The second night, “Suburbia”. and the third, “The Greatest Generation”. Every night will also feature an encore (whether you want it or not) set of old songs and rarities. Chances are, we’ll play songs that we won’t ever play again, unless we make it to twenty years or something like that.

There will be three day passes if you want to attend all three nights or single day tickets if that’s more your vibe. We’re working on locking in some awesome other bands to celebrate with us and we’ve gotten discounted block rates for hotels for people that want to come from far away for the whole weekend (as mentioned above). We’re also planning to reprint some of our earliest merch designs and have other throwback-centric surprises planned for everyone.

Seriously, we’ve had such an incredible time building this with you for a decade now. We can’t say thank you, enough. It sure as shit wasn’t easy. We certainly fought for it, but you all fought with us every step of the way. We’re never going to forget having to hustle CDs to people at malls for gas money. We’re never going to forget playing your friend’s basement. We’re never going to forget every time a crowd sang along to a song we wrote in our parent’s houses halfway across the world. We’re never going to forget and we’re always going to be grateful. 

Love forever, TWY”

Silverstein Announce Tenth Year Anniversary Tour for ‘Discovering the Waterfront’


We’ve written several times about ten year anniversary tours from many of the bands that we’ve grown up with and with 2015 just two months away, we’re sure we’ll be writing about more of them in the new year.

With Relient K, Taking Back Sunday, Senses Fail, and more already making their rounds, another band will shortly be joining that list: Silverstein.

The band, who we last wrote about earlier this year and their misfortune of having to cancel tour dates, have revealed plans to go on a ten-year anniversary tour for their breakthrough album, Discovering the Waterfront.

Supporting the Canadian band on the tour will be Beartooth, Hands Like House, Major League, and My Iron Lung.

Check out the newly released flyer for the tour slated to begin on Jan. 15, 2015 at the London Music Hall and wrap up in Toronto on Feb. 28 at the Danforth Music Hall.

Blink 182 Announce California Anniversary Shows

Blink 182

Blink-182 were dropping hints all weekend about a big announced that would be made today and that they did.

During the weekend, the band had been posting notes on their Facebook page with the background of their 2003 Untitled album’s art. All the notes ended up being the titles from the album which will turn ten next month.  Once all the titles on the stationary were released, the band went on to debut another cryptic note which had a specific time as well as the name of one of California’s famous stations, KROQ.

Turns out, all the hints were proof that the band would be celebrating the tenth year anniversary of that album, but unlike most of the assumptions, it would not be a full, North American tour. It was revealed that they would be performing at the Hollywood Palladium on November 6 and 7 where they will perform the album, from beginning to end.

But that’s not all. It was also revealed that they would be performing at the Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ on November 7th at 1 p.m., for those that are able to attend or are in the neighborhood.

Tickets for the Palladium are set yo go on sale this Friday, October 25 through Ticketmaster at 10 a.m. so if you really want to see them, you might want to be on your computer ready to purchase them way before that. As for tickets to the Red Bull Sound Space, those tickets cannot be purchased, but you can always watch the performance live at; the performance will also be available to watch up to 24 hours after the live broadcast.


The Early November to Celebrate ‘The Room’s Too Cold’ Anniversary


The Early November have finally answered the question that many of their fans have been wondering about especially after revealing some cryptic tweet yesterday about their album, The Room’s Too Cold . The band went on to announced that not only will Rise Records be repressing the album, but that they will be performing the full album for the first time ever on December 21 at a show in Philadelphia.

They also announced that tickets and the LP’s pre-sales will begin on Friday, September 20th.

Check out the message the band released on their website earlier today concerning the repressing.

To mark the albums 10th anniversary (originally released October 7th 2003 on Drive-Thru Records) it is being repressed by Rise Records on 180 gram vinyl featuring revamped artwork & deluxe packaging. Available December 2013. 

To celebrate the album and the holidays, the band will perform the record in its entirety for the first time ever. The evening will also include an additional set of songs from the bands entire catalog as well as special guest yet to be announced. This special performance will take place on December 21st 2013 at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA. 

LP pre-orders, show tickets & limited VIP ticket/LP bundle on-sale September 20th 2013.

On Twitter, the band also let fans know that they had been “cordially invited” to the tenth anniversary/holiday show later in the year. This past summer, the band had been on the Vans Warped Tour with frontman Ace Enders playing double duty in the band and performing his solo stuff.

The Killers to Release Greatest Hits


This year marks the tenth year anniversary of one of our personal favorite bands here, The Killers.

For some fans, it was probably inevitable that the band would be releasing greatest hits this year. For a little while now, there had been some talk that the band would be releasing a greatest hits album just in time for their tenth anniversary and it looks like talks were pretty accurate because they revealed earlier today that they would be dong just that.

In celebration of this momentous occasion, the band have decided to give fans their first greatest hits compilation which will be titled, Direct Hits. 

The compilation will include two new songs one titled “Shot at the Night”and the other will be titled “Just Another Girl.” “Shot at Night” was produced by the mastermind behind the French electro-group, M83, Anthony Gonzalez. A music video for the song will be coming pretty soon according to some sources. The video will be directed by Robert Schober, who has previously worked with the guys on “I Feel It In My Bones” and “Cowboys’ Christmas Ball.”

The video will apparently touch on some of the most cliched things about Las Vegas such as Elvis impersonators, casinos and little white chapels like the one drummer Ronnie Vannucci used to work at in the good ol’ days.

Direct Hits will of course feature many of the band’s hit songs including “Mr. Brightside” and “Somebody Told Me” from their debut album Hot Fuss and “When You Were Young,” “Read My Mind” and “For Reasons Unknown” from 2006’s Sam’s Town.

Sadly, some of our favorite tracks like “Jenny Was a Friend of Mine” and “Human” will not be featured on the album, but that’s why we have also those albums in our possession.

Direct Hits is scheduled to drop on November 12.

“Somebody Told Me”
