LIVE REVIEW: Innings Festival

The best part about music festivals is the wide variety of bands you get to see in one spot. Innings Festival was no exception.

Between the sporting events and the great weather, it is truly a destination for anyone looking to enjoy the outdoors. Day one was a great introduction to the vibe the weekend would…

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…

ALBUM REVIEW : Fall Out Boy – Mania

Fall Out Boy has been one of the few bands that still commands attention in both the pop and rock worlds. From their notable celebrity in the early 2000’s pop-punk scene to their growth post-hiatus with 2013’s Save Rock & Roll and follow up American Beauty/American Psycho, Fall Out Boy have proved their versatility and staying power again and again. 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. Frontman and…

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…
