The Rubens Roll Into SF

The Rubens are in their Junior Year since debuting back in 2013 with their self-titled album. And like all Juniors, there is an air of confidence among them that helps lift their situation no matter where they roam. The Rubens, a band from Australia, are far from their hometown of Menangle, New South Wales, as they embark on their “Million Man” march across the US, Canada, and half of Europe! In all, the band will visit 20 cities in 7 countries and be back in Oz by mid-April. They’ll hit…

ALBUM REVIEW : Black Veil Brides “Vale”

The leather-clad heavy rockers of Black Veil Brides are back with their fifth full-length album Vale released on January 12, 2018. With Vale being one the first few rock records of 2018, I was curious to see what this addition added to the already expansive discography of BVB, and what it would bring to the rock genre in the new year. On the first listen, Vale plays out as a combination of 2013’s Wretched & Divine and Andy Biersack’s solo record The Shadow Side, as musically the albums share a lot of similarities and themes. From showing…

With their new adventurous album Mania officially released through Island Records, the band showcases once again what it takes for an iconic rock band to break into the pop charts and remain relevant.

Album Review: Noah Gundersen ‘White Noise’

Seattle indie singer-songwriter Noah Gundersen released his third studio full-length album, White Noise, via Cooking Vinyl on Sept. 22. The release verges on the edge of a concept album, with its inspiration and namesake being the idea of sensory overload — fear, anxiety, desire, lust, and love. “White Noise is the place between waking and dreaming, where the edges blur and the light is strange. It’s a car crash, it’s a drowning, it’s everything all the time,” Gundersen said. Having seen Noah Gundersen’s name around a lot leading up to the release,…

ALBUM REVIEW : Neck Deep – ‘The Peace and the Panic’

One of the biggest and most highly anticipated releases of this year has been Neck Deep‘s newest record, The Peace and The Panic through Hopeless Records. With taking the time to fully appreciate this addition to the band’s extensive discography, The Peace and The Panic follows up another fan favorite release, 2015’s Life’s Not Out To Get You.  While some say the sophomore album has more lasting power, as Life’s Not Out To Get You gave the band the launch to their career, making Neck Deep genre leaders, this third album brings about a more mature side…

The hardcore genre continues to grow with some amazing artists, including newcomers in the past 5 years like Oceans Ate Alaska hailing from Birmingham, U.K.  While the band officially signed to a label back in 2012, they were recognized by Fearless Records in 2014 after signing and performing a great cover of Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” for Punk Goes Pop vol. 6.  And thus, the fan base around Oceans Ate Alaska was born… with the band gaining momentum within the scene they released their debut album, Lost Isles, in 2015, and played…
