Pillow Talk

Pillow Talk Stream New EP, ‘Recreational Feelings’

Pillow Talk has been on my radar ever since I first heard their track “Thinking Of You,” over at AbsolutePunk. Reminding me of The Cure, Balance and Composure, Citizen, Daylight, and a lot more, I soon became excited to hear what other blends of indie-rock the band could emanate. Thankfully I will have to wait […]

Beartooth

Beartooth Unveil Blistering New Single, “Dead”

I was first introduced to Beartooth towards the end of last year, and almost instantly fell in love with their expert ability to blend bone-crushing brutality and radio-ready hooks. Fronted by the multitalented Caleb Shomo, the five-piece have wasted no time carving out a name for themselves in a genre otherwise permeated by copycats and look-alikes. […]

It’s grisly and dark […]

Adam Sandler And Kevin James Will Battle Video Game Characters In ‘Pixels’

Adam Sandler has been striking out left and right at the box office in recent years, and to be perfectly honest his upcoming comedy Blended does not seem poised to do much to change that trend. In 2015, however, he might finally strike gold once more as he and Kevin James prepare to face off […]

It Dies Today

It Dies Today Release New Song, Announce ‘The Caitiff Choir’ Anniversary Shows

It Dies Today’s debut album The Caitiff Choir was one of the most popular metalcore albums released during the genre’s mid-2000s heyday, landing the band on the second stage of Ozzfest 2005 alongside the likes of Killswitch Engage and As I Lay Dying. But original vocalist Nick Brooks left the band shortly after the release […]

Much like the song, which plays a crucial role in the album’s […]

The follow-up, simply titled M.I., is due out May 27. While we’ve yet to hear a song from the record, we can rest assured that the subsequent […]
