Taste of Chaos-San Bernardino lineup unveiled

image

When it was announced that Taste of Chaos would be making a triumphant return in 2015, the people behind the once-great music festival decided to keep it as a one-day event in its hometown of San Bernardino, CA. After a successful event, plans were made to take the festival back on the road, after an almost six-year hiatus. Earlier this month, it was announced that the Rockstar Energy Drink Taste of Chaos Tour would hit the road again with its last stop being where it all began; the San Manuel Amphitheater Festival Grounds in San Bernardino.

On Monday (March 28), festival organizers unveiled the list of performers set to take the stage when the festival closes out in mid-July. Previously announced bands Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, Saosin, and the Early November will perform during that last show. In addition to the previously announced four acts, bands like Quicksand, the Get Up Kids, the Starting Line, Senses Fail, the Anniversary, Hot Rod Circuit, and Reggie and the Full Effect will all take the stage during that show.

“After seeing the success of last year’s Taste Of Chaos, it was clear that there was a demand for the festival’s return. We’re excited to be able to bring this expanded music lineup to the Southern California show,” said co-founder Kevin Lyman.

“I am so happy to know fans are excited about this lineup, but I know I am the MOST excited. Dashboard Confessional gets to play for our favorite people WITH our favorite people. I cannot imagine a better way to spend the summer,” reveals Dashboard Confessional frontman Chris Carrabba.

Agreeing with their soon-to-be tour mate are Taking Back Sunday who added, “It’s going to be good to be back in the company of so many bands we are both friends with and fans of.”

Taste of Chaos will arrive at the San Manuel Amphitheater Festival Grounds in San Bernardino on July 16. Tickets for the show will go on sale beginning this Friday, April 1 at 10 a.m. PT. The complete list of tour dates for the 2016 Taste of Chaos tour can be seen here.

Taste of Chaos announces first tour in over five years

image

Taste of Chaos made a triumphant return in 2015 with its one-day music festival in California and now, it looks like they are ready to conquer North America once again. On Monday (March 14), it was announced that the Vans Warped Tour’s sister festival will once again hit the road in 2016. Instead of traveling across the country in the winter which is how it earned its nickname, Winter Warped, the traveling rock show will take place during the spring/summer.

But if the plans to hit the road after six years of radio silence isn’t enough to get you to go, then the bands that will hit the road on the tour will convince you. Bands like Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, and The Early November will headline all the tour dates. Saosin, Motion City Soundtrack, and The Starting Line will also play selected dates. This will be the second full tour this year that Saosin will go on that will feature former vocalist Anthony Green on the microphone. Unlike this being good news for Saosin fans, this tour might mark the last time Motion City Soundtrack hits the road together before their indefinite hiatus.

The 2016 Rockstar Energy Drink’s Taste of Chaos tour kick-off on June 3 at the FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago and wrap up a month-and-a-half later on July 16 at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA; the place where the resurrection of Taste of Chaos all began last October. Tickets for the excursion will go on sale beginning this Friday, March 18 at 10 am, local time. Check out the complete tour schedule below.

Bayside to Head Out on Fall Tour with The Early November

Because Bayside is a band that is rarely not on the road, the New York band have announced they will be heading back on the road this Fall for a short tour.

Joining them for the August and September dates will be The Early November, who recently wrapped up their own headlining tour, and Better Off.

The upcoming tour will officially begin on Aug. 31 at the Ace of Spades in Sacramento and wrap up on Sept. 18 at Anthology in Rochester, NY. During the less than a month run, Bayside will also make appearances at all three Riot Fest; Denver, Chicago, and Toronto. No specific dates have been given for the Riot Fest days which explains why the poster below has no specific dates for those shows.

The Early November Stream “Cyanide”

image

The Early November’s second post-reunion album, Imbue, is set to be released in two weeks, and now the band are giving fans the chance to hear another new track from the impending album.

The new song is titled “Cyanide” and joins previously released tracks “Narrow Mouth” and “Circulation” on the soon-to-be released record which also happens to be the their fourth studio album.

Listen to the track below.

In an interview with Substream, the website that got the opportunity to premiere the new song, drummer Jeff Kummer, spoke with them about the new track.

“Recording this album was unlike anything we’ve done before. Half of the songs were tracked in 2013 and the other half toward the end of last year.

‘Cyanide’ was done in the last batch. I think your normal TEN fan will grab on to this one pretty quick because it has bits and pieces of what we’ve done over the years sprinkled all over it. It’s one of my favorite songs on the album.”

Imbue is scheduled to be released on May 12 through Rise Records. Pre-orders for the album, both psychical and digital, are current available.

In support of Imbue, The Early November will be heading out on tour this Spring with Lydia and Restorations.

Check out the complete itinerary below.

Listen to The Early November’s “Circulation”

image

Last month, the Early November gave longtime fans a slew of good news which included a tour, a new album, and the lead single from that new album.

Today, the band has given those waiting patiently another new song from Imbue.

The five-minute long track is titled “Circulation,” and is currently streaming at Fuse, but if you don’t feel like heading over there to listen to the song, you can just click the play button below and enjoy.

According to the music channel who got the opportunity to interview TEN frontman Ace Enders, “Circulation” is the band’s favorite song off of the upcoming record. Enders also revealed the inspiration behind the song which is kind of deep and relatable.

“‘Circulation’ was written on a flight from Philly to San Francisco to start a tour,” Enders told Fuse during their interview.

“Lyrically I couldn’t get the idea of being misjudged so badly that you’re trapped in the thought of what other people think of you. Or I just felt claustrophobic on the flight.”

Imbue will be released on May 12 through Rise Records. As for the tour, it will begin on the same day Imbue is released at Trees in Dallas. To view the complete list of tour stops, click here.

The Early November Announce New Album, Tour, and Lead Single

image

Today is definitely a good news day if you are a fan of The Early November.

The last we heard from the New Jersey band, which was back in January on Facebook, they had revealed plans to release a new album sometime this year.

Guess that “sometime” now has an official date.

The new album, their fourth studio album, will be titled Imbue and is set to be released on May 12 through Rise Records.

But that’s not even where the good news ends. The band is currently streaming the first single off of the album; a track titled “Narrow Mouth.” The video for “Narrow Mouth” can be seen below.

A new album and a song stream might seem like more than enough, but it doesn’t end there.

The band have revealed that in support of the new album, they will be heading out on tour this Spring. The tour will begin on May 12 in at Trees in Dallas and wrap up on June 4 at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. Lydia and Restoration will be making the trek alongside the band.

See, lots of good news. The full tour itinerary can be seen below.

Imbue is the second album the band have released since their reunion back in 2011. In 2012, they release their In Currents LP.

The Early November Reveal Big Plans For the New Year

The Early November are going to have a busy 2015.

On New Year’s Day, the New Jersey-based band posted on Facebook that they will be releasing a new album and would be heading out on tour sometime this year.

The touring should not come as a surprise since last year, it was confirmed they would be one of Motion City Soundtrack’s supporting acts on their “Commit This to Memory Tenth Anniversary” tour which is slated to begin later this month.

Plus, frontman Ace Enders has been keeping himself busy by hitting the road; his side project, I Can Make a Mess, just got off a short holiday tour with Anthony Green from Circa Survive, Dan Campbell from The Wonder Years, and Elder Brother.

The news of a new album comes over two years after the release of their last record, In Currents. In Currents was the band’s first new set of songs after reuniting following a lengthy hiatus; the band went on hiatus in 2007.

Ace Enders Releases New Acoustic Song

aceenders

Ace Enders is known to many as the lead singer of The Early November and I Can Make a Mess Like Nobody’s Business, but now the singer is coming out with a track in which it’s just him and his guitar.

The song which is titled “One More Song” debuted on the internet a few days ago, but now the new song with its video can be seen here. The video just features the singer strumming on his guitar in a corner of a room with a few electrical candles illumination his corner; simple and to the point so you can actually listen to the words.

While this is just a solo tune, it doesn’t mean that Enders will be leaving The Early November to go solo; the band are scheduled to perform at Skate and Surf Festival in Asbury Park, NJ on Saturday, May 17th. .
