Thrice to celebrate 15 years of ‘Vheissu’ with an anniversary tour

Anniversary tours seem to be all the rage lately, and now, we can add Thrice to that growing list of anniversary-tour-loving bands.

On Tuesday (Sept. 17), the California-founded band announced plans to embark on the Vheissu 15th anniversary tour. The newly-announced outing will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the group’s fourth full-length record.

The month-long trek will find the act performing at venues across the United States during the first couple of months of 2020. The excursion includes stops in major markets such as Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and more. The Vheissu 15th anniversary tour begins on Jan. 23 at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco and concludes a little over a month later on Feb. 29 at the Norvo in Los Angeles.

mewithoutYou, Drug Church, and Holy Fawn will join Thrice on the impending tour.

Pre-sale tickets for the Vheissu 15th anniversary tour are currently on sale on Thrice’s website while general ticket sales begin this Friday, Sept. 20, at noon local time.

Vheissu was released in October 2005 through Island Records. The release included tracks like “Music Box,” “Red Sky,” “Like Moths to Flame,” and its lead single “Image of the Invisible.” Vheissu peaked at the number 15 on Billboard’s 200 Chart and the number 24 spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart.

Vheissu went on to be regarded as Thrice’s best studio album to date and made several “Best of…” lists including Sputnikmusic‘s Top 100 Albums of the 2000s, Paste‘s 25 Best Punk Albums of the 2000s, and Kerrang!‘s Top 20 Albums of 2005.

Dubbed the “Celebrating 20 Years of Dashboard Confessional” tour (yes, we know it’s quite a mouthful), the outing will find the group performing at venues across the United States during February and March.

The month-and-a-half outing will include stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Chicago, Detroit, and more. The upcoming tour begins on Feb. 4 at the House of Blues in Dallas and concludes on March 28 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

The tour will include several two-night engagements, allowing them to perform some of their classic albums in full.

The Get Up Kids and Piebald will join Dashboard Confessional on select dates.

The record will include some of the group’s biggest hits such as “Screaming Infidelities,” “Hands Down,” “The Swiss Army Romance,” some newer tracks like “Heart Beat Here,” and yes, the Sam Raimi “Spider-Man” song “Vindicated.”

The announcements come after the group wiped their social media pages, leaving only a video of frontman Chris Carrabba singing “Screaming Infidelities” circa 2000 and a faux AOL messenger screen with a caption reading “BRB! #DC20.”

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.

THE OCTANE ACCELERATOR 2019 TOUR:

Oct. 29 – Cleveland, OH @ House Of Blues
Nov. 2 – Milwaukee, WI @ The Rave Club

Green Day to embark on a ‘Hella Mega’ tour with Weezer, Fall Out Boy

The good news?

Green Day, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy ARE totally hitting the road together for a massive (and epic) tour.

The bad news?

The tour isn’t happening until summer 2020.

Cue the groans of fans across the world.

On Tuesday (Sept. 10), the California punkers finally confirmed what fans have been speculating for a week or so. Dubbed the “Hella Mega” tour (a worthy name, if we say so ourselves), the upcoming trek will find Green Day, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy sharing the mantle of headliners while the Interrupters will play the role of supporting act throughout the long journey.

The lengthy outing will include shows in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, and Canada during the summer months of 2020.

“It’s kind of a Green Day idea. And we talked about how we weren’t really wanting to do stadiums and do something that was like [a] throwback to Monsters of Rock Tour. There was, of course, Fall Out Boy and Weezer and now we’re stoked,” Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong tells Zane Lowe on his Apple Beats 1 show.

Tickets for the “Hella Mega Tour” go on sale next Friday, Sept. 20, at 10 a.m. local time.

Watch the ridiculously creepy announcement video for the tour here.

The “Hella Mega” tour will be in support of Green Day’s recently announced new album, Father of All… (its official title is Father of All Motherfuckers). The record, their 13th full-length LP, is due out Feb. 7, 2020, via their longtime home of Reprise/Warner.

To coincide with all the announcements, the group has unleashed the album’s first single and title track “Father of All…” Listen to the new song above.

According to Armstrong, Green Day’s new album is going to be relatively short, clocking in at under 30 minutes.

“[The album] is only 26 minutes long, so it’s the shortest record we’ve made, I think since Dookie or Insomnia,” the frontman told Lowe.

“I realized I hate long songs.”

Father of All… is the follow-up to 2016’s Revolution Radio.

Later this month, the trio will release their new graphic novel Last of the American Girls (yes, it’s named after a track from their eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown). The book is due out Oct. 29 through Dey Street Books.

Like Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy have some new tunes on the way. Weezer is set to drop their 14th studio album Van Weezer in May 2020 while Fall Out Boy will release a complication album titled Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two in November.

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.

We the Kings extend upcoming fall tour schedule

We the Kings’ fall itinerary is already filled with tour dates, so what’s another handful of gigs?

On Friday (Sept. 6), the Florida-founded act announced plans to embark on a short, headlining fall tour. Simply dubbed the “We the Kings Fall 2019 Tour,” the newly announced outing will include shows sporadically spread throughout October, November, and December.

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.”

Tool released their much-anticipated fifth studio album FEAR INOCULUM today (Aug. 30). By the looks of several early reviews, it seems like the 13-year wait was well worth it.

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.
