Set It Off announce new album, early 2019 tour plans

If you’re a fan of Set It Off, then the band has a lot of good news coming your way. On Monday (Nov. 19), the Florida-founded act announced plans to release their brand new studio album in early 2019. Titled Midnight, the record is due out Feb. 1, 2019 via their new record label home of Fearless Records. Pre-orders for Midnight are currently available on the group’s website here.

Midnight is the follow-up to the band’s 2016 release, Upside Down. The record, the act’s fourth studio album, was produced by Mike Green whose resume includes Panic! at the Disco, State Champs, and Neck Deep.

In addition to the new album announcement, the four-piece also unleashed the music video for the record’s latest single, “Lonely Dance.

“Welcome to ‘Lonely Dance,’ the anthem of the introvert, where we can all be content and not feel like a freak for just wanting to stay inside where we feel at home. We’re really excited about this song and the music video accompanied with it,” explains Set It Off frontman Cody Carson.

“It’s honestly my favorite music video of ours to date. As far as the concept, how can you get more isolated than space? It was an unbelievable experience to work on a set so intricate and beautiful as that spaceship and the team behind the camera were just amazing!”

Watch the music video for “Lonely Dance” above.

Back in July, several months before confirming the new album, the quartet released a song titled “Killer in the Mirror.” At the time, fans believed the song was a one-off single, but as it turns out, the track is the album’s opening song.

In support of Midnight’s forthcoming release, Set It Off have also announced plans to hit the road during the months of February and March of 2019. The upcoming excursion will begin on Feb. 15 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas and conclude over a month later on March 24 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.

The trek will begin on Feb. 5 at the NorVa in Norfolk, Virginia and conclude a couple of weeks later on Feb. 28 at the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, New York.

Backstreet Boys announce massive ‘DNA’ world tour, new album

Everybody, it’s time to rock your body because the Backstreet Boys are going on tour! On Friday (Nov. 9), the Florida-founded boy band announced plans to embark on a massive tour in 2019. Titled the DNA world tour, the trek will find the group dancing their way across two continents throughout the new year.

The United Kingdom/European leg of the tour will begin on May 11 at the Altice Arena in Portugal. After being on the road for a month and a half, the trek will conclude on June 25 at the Budapest Arena in Hungary.

If a massive world tour was not enough to bring out all the Backstreet Boys fans, then a brand new album may have done the trick. In addition to the 70-date jaunt across the world, the act also announced plans to release a new album in January. Titled DNA (like the tour), the album is due out Jan. 25. DNA will be the follow-up to 2013’s In a World Like This.

Vance Joy to release ‘Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre’ album

Vance Joy may have spent most of the year touring, but for fans who may have not gotten the chance to see him, it looks like the singer is going to give them a little something special. On Friday (Nov. 2), the Australian singer-songwriter unveiled plans to release his Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre album.

The 16-track live album was recorded earlier in the year during his sold out appearance at Colorado’s iconic concert venue, the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The show was part of Joy’s epic 83-stop Nation of Two world tour.

According to a press release, the live album will feature “Joy’s amiable storytelling intertwined among 16 songs, including favorites from each of the multi-platinum artist’s albums.”

Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre is due out Nov. 16 on all DSPs and streaming services.

Pre-orders for the forthcoming release are available here. All pre-orders will include  an instant download of “Mess is Mine (Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre).”

In addition to the live album, Joy also revealed that he will be releasing a special, limited edition collector’s vinyl. The collector’s item will be released exclusively via Barnes and Nobles and will only be available in the United States. Pre-orders for the vinyls are available here.

After being on the road for most of 2018, Joy will wrap up his lengthy tour itinerary later this month in Europe. Following a short time off, Joy will hit the road once more, this time opening for P!nk during her 2019 European summer tour.

In conjunction with the album news, Joy also released the music video for his latest single, “I’m with You.” Watch the clip above.

“I’m with You” is featured on Joy’s recently released record, Nation of Two.

Watch: Real Friends get beheaded in ‘Me First’

Real Friends are celebrating Halloween a couple of days ahead of time with their brand new music video. On Monday (Oct. 29), the Illinois-founded band unleashed the three-and-a-half-minute clip for their latest single, “Me First.” The video finds the five-piece trying to evade a beautiful serial killer who just so happens to be their boss. Sadly, the video concludes with things not turning out in the guys’ favor.

The video begins with the antagonist, a beautiful blonde, sitting in her mansion minding her own business. Once the music kicks in, the blonde turns from a subdued rich person to someone with a sinister secret behind her smile. In between the colored images of the blonde going about her house, are black-and-white shots of her in what looks to be a basement, with a cleaver in hand.

Unfortunately for the guys in the band, they work for the serial killer and have become her next victims. The rest of the clip follows the killer as she hunts down each of them and beheads them in her basement of secrets.

“Have you ever wanted to see our heads cut off?” asks bassist Kyle Fasel. “Well, look no further.”
