ALBUM REVIEW: Chrysalis ‘Reminder’

“I will be there through the darkest of your days” is one of those dreamy one-liners that every girl hopes a man (or woman) will coo to her, gripping an acoustic guitar on the deck of a balcony or fireside in a haughty ski resort. Yet it’s the hook in metal band Chrysalis song “Angel,” a warped banger masquerading as a swoonsome confession of unconditional love. Metal isn’t usually associated with such romantic furor, but that’s where the California hardcore outfit swoop in with Reminder, their 11-track  full-length album. The record, released…

LIVE REVIEW: Yellowcard at The House of Blues, Boston

Any scene kid – former or active – between the ages of 20 and 30 would pee their pants over the thought of getting to see Yellowcard perform live. The band is practically a Warped Tour institution and one of the highlights of the 2000s emo movement. But with the announcement of the band’s final tour and album, tickets to the band’s Farewell tour remained especially coveted last night (November 7) at the House of Blues Boston, where Yellowcard performed to their final Massachusetts crowd at their sold-out show. Casual…

STREAM: I Declare War “We Wait”

I Declare War released a heavy, new song titled “We Wait.” The track is off the band’s upcoming album Songs For The Sick, which is set to release this fall. “I am the sickness, I am the cure, I control the light inside my heart,” vocalist Jamie Hanks screams. Although the song doesn’t sound too different from anything the band have released, to date, there is still something missing. Although catchy, it seems like the band built up the album so much that this isn’t as refreshing as what listeners expected to hear….

WATCH: The 1975 “Somebody Else” Music Video

The world’s most mysterious band, The 1975, released a music video for their song “Somebody Else.” The video is confusing, to say the least. The 1975 frontman, Matt Healy, enters a room and goes about his daily routine alongside a seemingly dead body hunched over on a couch. An unseen crowd oo’s and ah’s in the background as Healy gets dressed. Maybe the sounds are the protagonist’s own thoughts? And then, the real music video starts. Healy walks around town, basking in his own self-pity, before having a bit too much…

WATCH: Four Year Strong “Who Cares” Music Video

Four Year Strong released an angsty, ice cream-filled music video for their song “Who Cares,” off their 2015 self-titled LP.
