Of course, you can never fill the original void. MCR were held in high regard, and it looks like they may be back to take the crown. The group posted a cryptic Facebook video that shows a waving flag…

Needless to say, when I listened to the debut album Decode from Boston-based band Nervous, my expectations were possibly a little higher than they should have been. I wasn’t entirely disappointed. The 9-track Decode is more or less an intriguing one. With vocals that, at times,…
