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…

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…

LIVE REVIEW & PHOTOS: Assuming We Survive, Colorado Springs, CO

“I once dropped off my daughter at school in our tour bus, and she was embarrassed!” lead singer of Assuming We Survive, Adrian Estrella told my dad and I, to which my father responded with, “Well of course, dads are supposed to embarrass their kids!” It seems a little cheesy and awkward to have your parent hanging out with you when you’re trying to be cool around the lead singer of your favorite band, but that’s where I was on Sunday night.

LIVE REVIEW: Alex G At The Middle East, Boston

“I always break a f*cking [guitar] string, man,” Alex G bemoaned to his sold-out audience at the Middle East Nightclub Tuesday, April 12. “And now you guys are going to have to see the worst show of your lives.” That wasn’t the general consensus of the myriad of hip kids gathered at the Middle East downstairs, who gathered to see Alex G, Porches, and Your Friend. They swirled around in clothing that was equal parts stylish and fashionably offensive, donning brash colors and patterns absurdly clashing. In the midst of…
