ALBUM REVIEW: Paramore ‘After Laughter’

It’s been two days since the release of Paramore’s After Laughter, and lead vocalist Hayley Williams will cry if she wants to. The Nashville-natives’ fifth studio album details the band’s latest journey through lyrics of growth, frustration, and apparently lots of tears in a collection of 12 synth-based pop tracks. After Laughter was officially released to the world three years after the band’s prior self-titled release Paramore, plenty of time to showcase Paramore’s development and change since we last heard their sound. Right from the album’s bubbly lead track “Hard Times,” it’s…

ALBUM REVIEW: LILAC LUNGS ‘EVENTIDE’

Detroit born and formed, Lilac Lungs are bringing a bold new sound to the genre. Formed in 2015, they’ve opened for big names such as Emarosa, Slaves, and The Orphan, The Poet. From the beginning, they’ve grown and found their own specialty in what they do. Their sound is something similar to what you might hear on the radio but with lyrics that aren’t afraid to stand out and drive right into your heart. The words will make you think twice and see a new perspective. Eventide will make you rethink the way that pop-electro…

SHOW REVIEW: Architects, Stray From The Path, Make Them Suffer

In a world with deeply heated political events and a host of other issues, music has become an outlet for many. Casual listeners and diehard fans alike find their purpose at concerts. From the front row mosher to the headlining vocalist, having an outlet for feelings has never been more poignant. This holds especially true for Brighton, England’s Architects. The group, already well-informed and against injustice, experienced a major shift that could turn a lesser band upside down. Architects – and the metal community as a whole – felt a…

There’s something so special about being witness to a band’s hometown show. When I learned that I’d be in Toronto for Arkells‘ hometown show in Hamilton, ON, just an hour away, I knew I had to be there. I’d been following the band for only a few years, but after being blown away by their performances at SXSW, I knew that they provided an intense energy and stage presence that was only set to amplify when they were back home.

Live Review & Photos: Switchfoot & Relient K at The Phoenix Concert Theatre, Toronto

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 was a bitter cold night in Toronto. However the warmth inside The Phoenix Concert Theatre was exceptional as an affectionate sold out crowd filled the venue and played host to Switchfoot, who are currently touring for their (get ready to feel old) tenth studio album, Where The Light Shines Through. It may have been a while since the Californian alternative rockers have enjoyed mainstream success, but they’ve continued to be top dogs on the Christian rock scene and it was apparent in Toronto that they are…
