I haven't posted on here in ever and I don't even know were to start on the music scene. New releases? Yeah, I think I'll start with some good news and end with a little bit of the bad news. New releases, go get them. I see Stars Digital Renegade came out on March 13th, 2012. You can buy it on I-Tunes, Best Buy, your local Hot topic or I'm guessing at certain music stores as well. I do have to say, it's heavier than the previous stuff but they did bring in the Welcome to the End of the World Party into the mix. They collaborated with Danny Warsnop of Asking Alexandria and Cassadee Pope of Hey Monday. Congratulations, I do approve of the album. The Hot Topic version has a bonus track called 'This Isn't A Game Boy.' Check it out.
Go see them on the last 3 weeks of there tour The Still Reckless Tour with Asking Alexandria, Trivium, Motion in White and The Amity Affection. Sorry any Dir en Grey fans, the band dropped out before the tour started and I honestly don't know who took their place on tour. They have one Canadian date which is Toronto on April 1st 2012.
Another new release that I've been listening too is The All-American Rejects Kids in the Street. It's different more mature but still a Reject sound to it. They'll be on tour SOON in April with A Rocket to the Moon. Grab your tickets before they're gone. The All-American Rejects will also be opening for Blink-182 on SOME dates so check tour for that. I personally think that's something to see.
I haven't listen to these 2 bands new record yet but I still suggest to go get the record.
The Used - Vulnerable and Before Their Eyes - Redemption. They both came out on March 26th-27th 2012. I'll be checking them out soon and go check out The Used on this Summers The Van Warped Tour. They'll be playing about half to a third of the tour along with MANY amazing 90 pop punk bands including Taking Back Sunday, Yellowcard, New Found Glory and Rise Against. Pre-Sale starts the 30th of March, tickets to Pre-Sale will go fast. Register before the 30th and you'll be entered to win1 of 3 life long V.I.P treatment at the Vans Warped Tour. Regular sale tickets go on shortly after.
On some sad news about Chiodos, I don't know what will happen but, Brandon Bolmer and Tanner Wayne left the group because of lack of communication and it was going no where the band. Rumors already floated around that Craig Owens is trying to get back with the band which in my opinion Craig doesn't want really anything to do with the band or at least that's what it had seem. The last Chiodos tour on the Scream it Like you Mean tour was a little rough because of little arguments and rumors that Jason wanted to drop out for school spend time with his wife and wanting to start a family.
