10. PREMIERE: Watch Blue October tear through “Say It” from their new concert film
WHAT WE SAID:
“The band’s big hit, ‘Hate Me,’ still gets spun on rock radio nearly a decade later, but they’re far more than a one-hit wonder, as their new concert film Things We Do At Night (Live From Texas) proves.”


Supros

9. PREMIERE: Florida indie rockers Supros get gritty and dancey in “Punctual Love” music video
WHAT WE SAID:
“Imagine, for a second, a band that’s a cross between Young The Giant and the 1975 with a hint of Passion Pit and a sprinkle of Cold War Kids for good measure. It’s dancey and synth-assisted but not just empty pop calories—the lyrics actually mean something to the listener while at the same time meaning everything to the singer.”


nativesuns

8. EXCLUSIVE: Get “Lost” with Native Suns inside their first-ever music video
WHAT WE SAID:
“Atlanta-based six-piece Native Suns got their start when guitarist Michael Matejick wanted to try something new, following the breakup of his former band, Rise Records prog-metalcore act Of Machines. Matejick wanted to explore different sounds, and Native Suns became the conduit for that—since their 2012 formation, the band have sculpted tons of demos that are both ethereal and heavy-hitting, with soaring guitar lines and intensely cathartic vocals.”


chokeup

7. EXCLUSIVE: Choke Up throw the best costume party ever in the raucous “Woke Up Drunk” music video
WHAT WE SAID:
“The Mason Marino-directed video is set at what certainly appears to be the best costume party ever—we spotted Waldo, Jay and Silent Bob, a Benihana chef and tons more mingling in the crowd—with the band providing the soundtrack.”


circasurvive7

6. EXCLUSIVE: Circa Survive premiere part 3 of their tour diary + win an autographed poster and CD!
WHAT WE SAID:
“Circa Survive are known for their absolutely euphoric live shows as well as the intense (and often hilarious) camaraderie shared between the band members. But if you’re one of the few that still needs convincing about how amazing this band are both as musicians and as people, check out part three of their spring tour diary.”

5. EXCLUSIVE: Now And On Earth explore the shadows in “Intoxicated” music video
WHAT WE SAID:
“Watching the music video for “Intoxicated,” the lead single from Now And On Earth‘s debut album, Blacked Out, you may recognize a few faces lurking in the shadows—three of NAOE’s members did time in Montreal partycore band Skip The Foreplay. But one listen to ‘Intoxicated’ will tell you this is a completely different band, more focused on dark lyrical imagery and strong musicianship as well as an absolutely killer chorus.”


Senses Fail - Promo 1

4. PREMIERE: Senses Fail’s “The Three Marks Of Existence” video will make you mosh right now, wherever you are
WHAT WE SAID:
“One of the best songs on the band’s new record is ‘The Three Marks Of Existence,’ a full-on rager that doesn’t even crack two minutes and is practically tailor made for the Warped Tour—which is why the music video for the track was filmed over the course of Warped thus far.”

3. EXCLUSIVE: Between The Buried And Me’s Paul Waggoner teaches you “Famine Wolf” in this play-along video
WHAT WE SAID:
“One of our favorite songs on the album is ‘Famine Wolf,’ especially its super-gnarly guitar riff, so we begged and pleaded with the band to sit down and show us just how to play it because we are straight-up jabronis when it comes to the six-string.”

2. PREMIERE: The Spill Canvas’ full-band reworking of “The Tide” is angsty and memorable
WHAT WE SAID:
“The band recorded it live at Sixwill Studios in Bethelehem, Pennsylvania, and it is a fascinating full-band reinterpretation of an acoustic classic.”


Reflections

1. PREMIERE: Reflections’ “Actias Luna” turns tragedy into triumph
WHAT WE SAID:
“Wolf was able to channel the trauma and tragedy present in his life to create Reflections’ third album, the Will Putney-produced The Color Clear, and the result is a triumphant display of passion and perseverance.”
