Ice Nine Kills channel ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ for ‘Savages’ lyric video

Halloween is right around the corner, which means Ice Nine Kills is getting ready to make their annual spooky way across the country. But before they can take their favorite horror film characters on the road, the band has unleashed the lyric video for their latest single.

On Tuesday (Sept. 10), the Massachusetts-founded band unleashed the lyric video for their latest single “Savages.” Taking visual inspiration from the slasher film that inspired the lyrics (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), the look of the video is very similar to that of the 1974 movie. The clip includes footage of Ice Nine Kills performing for a packed house as well as footage that looks like it came from the “based on a true story” thriller flick.

Watch the video for “Savages” above.

“Savages” is featured on Ice Nine Kills horror film-inspired album The Silver Scream. The record, the act’s fifth full-length album, was released on October 2018. Late last month, the band announced plans to release a deluxe version of the record. The reworked album will feature all 13 previously released tracks as well as a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and a song inspired by the 1996 slasher flick Scream.

In support of the re-released work, Ice Nine Kills previously announced a set of fall tour dates. The “Octane Accelerator” tour begins on Oct. 29 at the House of Blues in Cleveland and concludes a little over a month later on Dec. 1 at Webster Hall in New York.

Supporting acts include Fit for a King, Light the Torch, Make Them Suffer, and Awake At Last.

As It Is founding member exits band, group announces ‘going-away’ tour

As It Is may be down a member going into 2020, but they’re going to make sure to give him one hell of a going-away celebration.

On Monday (Sept. 9), the British band announced the departure of founding member and longtime guitarist Ben Langford-Biss. The news came on the same day that the group was supposed to make a huge announcement. Considering the impact Langford-Biss’ departure will have on the future of the band, it was definitely a massive reveal.

After releasing a saddening (and lengthy) letter from Langford-Biss, the remaining members made it known that they weren’t going to let the guitarist leave so easily.

Instead, they’ll honor his decision to walk away by embarking on one final tour. Dubbed the “Ben Today, Gone Tomorrow” tour, the November-centric journey will find the group performing at venues across Europe.

The tour will begin on Nov. 4 at the Baroeg in Rotterdam and conclude a couple of weeks later on Nov. 15 at Dingwalls in London. The outing will act as both Langford-Biss’ final trek and a tour in support of their recently released record, The Great Depression.

Tickets for the newly announced shows go on sale this Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 9 a.m. local time.

As evident by the tour plans, there are no hard feeling between the remaining band members and Langford-Biss. The letter to fans reveals that the guitarist felt that it was time to “pursue other paths and projects” and that his passion for “music has waned.”

He jokes that even though he’s leaving “his brothers” after this difficult decision, he’s hopeful that “they’ll still let me guest when I undoubtedly ask for a guest list spot to a show.”

Read Langford-Biss’ letter to fans here.

Last week, the group teased that there was a massive announcement and that it would be “the end of an era.” For some fans, they speculated that the band would be dropping their current emo look that came with the release of The Great Depression and begin a new chapter in the band’s history book.

Well, it looks like they weren’t THAT off after all.

That upcoming excursion kicks off on Oct. 29 at the National in Richmond, Virginia and wraps up on Nov. 24 at the Fillmore in San Francisco.

We the Kings have spent the last couple of years on the down-low. To celebrate their debut album’s tenth anniversary, they released Self-Titled Nostalgia in 2017. The record featured reworked versions of all the songs that appeared on 2007’s We the Kings.

The following year, they released their fan-funded album, Six.

During the band’s quiet time, frontman Travis Clark has been keeping busy. Recently, the vocalist joined forces with Avril Lavigne to work on her comeback single “Head Above Water.”

Angels and Airwaves channel the Beach Boys with ‘Kiss and Tell’

Surprise!

Angels and Airwaves have released a brand new song.

On Thursday (Aug. 29), the Tom DeLonge-fronted band unleashed heir second new song of the year. Titled “Kiss and Tell,” the latest track comes a day after the band kicked off their much-anticipated comeback tour. According to DeLonge, the song was inspired by the Beach Boys.

“The beginning of the song is really an ode to the Beach Boys,” the musician reveals.

“It opens with three-part harmonies to create an introduction with multi-dimensionality. We wanted to create a sound that had electronic elements right alongside classic rock and pop-punk melodic structures.  Lyrically, this song is specifically about balancing on the edge of a razor blade. Doing something you’re not supposed to be doing, and although you might die while doing it, it’s still very much keeping you feeling alive.”

Listen to “Kiss and Tell” above.

While the act has been mum about a new studio album, fans are hopeful that both “Kiss and Tell” and previously-released “Rebel Girl” will find a home on the group’s sixth studio album. Angel and Airwaves last full-length record was 2014’s The Dream Walker, and in 2017, they released We Don’t Need to Whisper Acoustic – EP.

Last night, the four-piece made their triumphant return to the stage after seven years. Taking the stage at Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, California, their 22-song setlist included classic AVA songs, some blink-182 (“I Miss You,” “Aliens Exist”) and Boxcar Racer (“There Is”) covers as well as the live debut of six new tracks.

Angels and Airwaves full tour itinerary can be found here.

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.

The 26-stop excursion begins on Oct. 20 at the Rialto Theatre in Tucson and concludes a month later on Nov. 20 at the Majestic Ventura Theater in Ventura, California. Right before the tour kicks off, Atreyu will hit the stage at Las Vegas’ Las Rageous Festival.

According to a press release, the setlist for the newly-announced shows will be chosen by the fans, not the band.

“What better way to celebrate than with the reason we are all here…YOU. So here’s how it goes. 20 years. 20 songs. Chosen by YOU…the fans,” drummer Brandon Saller said.

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.”

Whitechapel, He Is Legend, Tempting Fate, and Santa Cruz will open for Atreyu throughout the tour.

Blink-182 head to the ‘Darkside’ on their new track

Happy Friday, pop-punkers! Blink-182 just dropped another new song.

On Friday (July 26), the California-founded act released the fourth single off their upcoming new studio album. Titled “Darkside,” the song sounds a lot like a poppier version of Alkaline Trio, securing Matt Skiba’s position within the longtime band’s updated lineup.

Listen to “Darkside” above.

Earlier this week, the band posted an image on Instagram featuring a blue painted background and the word “Darkside” in neon lights.

The caption read “Friday” and a phone number. Fans were urged to text the number to hear a sneak peek of the new track.

“Darkside” joins previously released singles “Blame It on My Youth,” “Happy Days,” and “Generational Divide” on blink’s upcoming new album. Officially titled NINE, the record is due out Sept. 20. In a confusing twist, the album appears to be blink’s eighth studio effort, though frontman Mark Hoppus has clarified that debate.

NINE. This is our ninth studio album, as decided by me and Travis,” the musician writes on Reddit.

“Some count Buddha, some not. Some count The Mark, Tom and Travis Show. Some count Dogs Eating Dogs. I’m counting Buddha, Cheshire Cat, Dude Ranch, Enema of the State, Toypaj, Untitled, Neighborhoods, California, and now NINE.”

I guess that put an end to that argument.

Blink-182 are currently on the road on their summertime outing with Lil Wayne and Neck Deep. Earlier this month, the tour made headlines when the rapper revealed to an unsuspecting audience that he may exit the excursion well before its final show.

Taking to social media soon after, Lil Wayne refuted the claim. “Yesterday was krazy! But I want all my fans to know I won’t be quitting this tour!” the rapper posted on Twitter.

“I’m having too much fun with my bros blink-182. Bangor, ME See you tomorrow!”

Tonight, the tour will take over the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Ampitheatre in Tampa. The remaining tour dates can be found here.
