Ohio's All Dogs make music that could be considered classically pop-punk. They realize the power in addressing serious topics in a catchy chord progression...You'd think the result would be jarring, but these guys are professionals. If "That Kind of Girl" is any indication, they're gearing up for one of the strongest releases on the year.
Diät hail from Berlin but boast of Australian members...it makes seeing them live near impossible (unless you're one of the lucky ducks going to Los Angeles punk fest Berserktown ll next month, to which we say, bring us!) Even if getting in the room with these post-punk gents might prove to be a problem, at least we have a new tune. "Toonie" is the kind of stuff that will persuade even the biggest nonbeliever.
Alice Glass bid farewell to her band Crystal Castles in a very public way. We were heart broken, but the lady is back with "Stilllbirth," our first look into her solo material. It's very familiar to her old bands, so fans, you've got absolutely nothing to worry about.
We've had our eye on Dilly Dally for a minute now, and couldn't be more excited for the Canadian band. They might not have invented their preferred brand of melodic punk, but they've definitely perfected it. "Desire" is no exception.
Danish Joy Division worshipers Lower are back and bigger than ever, this time with the ferocious "At the Endless Party." It's evident that these gents are obsessed with the seemingly beautiful, and the spaces they can inhabit.
They're baaaaack! Our favorite Australians, 5 Seconds of Summer have shared the first official single from their highly anticipated sophomore release. The tune is called "She's Kinda Hot," it kind of sort of recalls My Chemical Romance's "Teenagers" and was co-written by the Madden Brothers of Good Charlotte. If that doesn't get you to press play, nothing will.
