Album Review: Rise Against – ‘Ghost Note Symphonies, Vol. 1’

The day Rise Against posted a teaser video on Youtube, with a reimagined version of “House on Fire,” from their 2017 Wolves album, I scoured the internet for more details. I’d been waiting on an acoustic solo Tim McIlrath (Rise Against) album for years, and had missed the boat on the 2013 Revival Tour with him, Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Matt Pryor (The Get Up Kids), Toh Kay (Streetlight Maniefesto), and others. Fail. If you’ve seen Rise Against live in concert, you might have experienced the lighter side of the punk rock Chicago…

ALBUM REVIEW: Cory Branan ‘The No Hit Wonder’

As I sat in the tiniest of Philadelphia green rooms with Cory, he promised me that on his upcoming album, The No Hit Wonder, there would be something for everyone. “There’s a lot of weird stuff on there, but it’s good,” he assured me. With a natural predisposition to southern gentleman of the musical variety, I was inclined to believe him. What he didn’t tell me was that those songs were going to knock me flat on my ass. As any Lucero fan can tell you, “Cory Branan’s got an…

ALBUM REVIEW: The Downtown Fiction ‘Losers & Kings’

A fantastic combination of pop and rock, Virginian band The Downtown Fiction is releasing their second full-length album June 17th, titled Losers & Kings,with their new label Fearless Records. This album is chock full of great energy and fun songs that are often anthem-like in nature. The mix of excellent beats and the semi-boyish voice of lead singer Cameron Leahy (which sounds a lot better than you think), Losers & Kings is incredibly enjoyable and definitely a mood booster if you ever needed one.

ALBUM REVIEW: The Nearly Deads ‘Invisible Tonight’

 The album begins with pounding piano keys before Theresa Jeane’s killer vocals kick in, announcing “we’re over” in an epic way on “I Said.” The passion behind this track is awe inspiring. From the electrifying music to the biting, harsh lyrics, the song blasts from your speakers like a fist. “Invisible Tonight,” the title track of the album, keeps the energetic, biting tone of the album going, calling out a controlling and demanding partner. It’s the type of song I can picture being performed at Warped Tour to a crowd…

WATCH: Panic! At The Disco “This Is Gospel (Piano Version)”

Panic! At The Disco released a piano version and video for their song “This Is Gospel.” Now, if you are expecting a sweet three and a half minute video of Brendon Urie playing the piano, then you obviously don’t know P!ATD very well whatsoever. Throughout the video various items, from confetti to barbecued chicken, fall from the sky landing on Urie and his white piano. It’s a weird concept, and kind of distracts you from how beautiful this track is in a stripped down version. To really appreciate both the…
