Interview and Album Review: Cory Wells ‘The Way We Are’

Cory Wells’ debut full-length album, The Way We Are was released via Pure Noise Records on Nov. 15. Throughout the twelve song album, Wells traverses through the whole gamut of emotions, delivering powerful screams, lush acoustic guitar, and even a soaring falsetto. Four years in the making, The Way We Are faces topics like understanding, acceptance, and perseverance. The album’s opening track, “Distant” is a brief, but blunt warning, and feels anything but far away, or disconnected at merely 2:10 long. Stay away from me / The devil’s got the…

The Wilderness Release Inspired Music Video For “Fall (Despite What You Do)”+ New Interview

Have you ever looked around at your life and thought “how did things end up here?” It’s a complicated emotion that most of us can unfortunately say we’ve been through at one time or another. However, as difficult as it might feel in the moment, it is a poignantly human experience and there’s no denying it’s something that ties us all together—we all feel, we all experience pain, and for the most part, we come out stronger on the other end. In their newly released music video “Fall (Despite What…

Warped Tour Interview 2018: Ice Nine Kills

(Photo credit: Fearless Records) (Interview answered by  Justin deBlieck) You wrote “Enjoy Your Slay” after polling fans to ask if they’d prefer a song based off of The Shining or Psycho. I love that kind of fan inclusion! Not only that, but the song features vocals from the grandson of Stanley Kubrick, Sam Kubrick. Which again is just so above and beyond what most bands are doing. Did you have any inspiration for that kind of creativity and ambition or has that always been part of your vision? We’ve always felt…

INTERVIEW: Brightside Play ‘Would You Rather’

It’s been less than a year since I was first introduced to Brightside, and the time I’ve spent getting to know them is even shorter. But these are two facts that I tend to forget quite often. You see, these five talented musicians from Tallahassee make you feel like a lifelong friend from the instant you say “hello” to them. The best way to describe them is “approachable.” They will have a conversation with anyone who walks up to them. Literally anyone. The amount of interruptions that will occur during…

You can check out the full exclusive interview after the jump! Movements released Feel Something on October 20th and you can…
