Circa Survive Announce 10-Year Anniversary Tour, Deluxe Vinyl Reissues For ‘Juturna’

As suspected, due to their semi-cryptic teases online last week, Circa Survive have announced the long-awaited ten-year anniversary tour for their fan-favorite debut LP, Juturna. Throughout October and November, the band will share the stage with RX Bandits and at least one TBA band for several shows around the US and Canada. Those dates can […]

Fall Out Boy’s ‘From Under The Cork Tree’ Turns Ten

Place yourself in a room full of 18 to 20-something-year-olds today and make them listen to this three-second audio clip. It takes me about a second to recognize the opening to “Sugar, We’re Going Down.” I’d imagine it’s the same for many. Hi-hats and two consecutive muffled kick drum beats are all it takes for […]

EDITORIAL: 10 Years of Emanuel’s ‘Soundtrack to a Headrush’

In September of 2005, I enrolled in an introductory guitar course through my high school, certain that a few tricky bar chords were all that separated me from a rock star life on the road. Unfortunately, the whole musician thing didn’t really pan out, and I ended up doing a lot more socializing than shredding. A […]

Ten Years Of Chasing Suns: Looking Back At The Supergroup Behind ‘Tiger And The Duke’

For the longest time my brother and I had pretty similar tastes in music. Eventually though, our tastes changed. I started getting into metal and screamo, while he continued to drift toward indie and alt-rock. Initially, The Sound Of Animals Fighting weren’t on my radar, but him and his best friend made me listen to […]

Say Anything To Release Deluxe Vinyl Set For ‘…Is A Real Boy’ 10-Year Anniversary

This is one of those moments where it is entirely appropriate to only use the “Shut up and take my money!” meme. Say Anything have announced a deluxe vinyl box set for the ten-year anniversary of their beloved album …Is A Real Boy. The box set will include the original ten tracks off …Is A […]

He Is Legend’s ‘I Am Hollywood’ Turns 10 Years Old

On August 5, 2005, I was sitting in a chair in a stranger’s apartment in Bakersfield, CA, 6 hours from my own home. The apartment belonged to the members of a local punk band called Gramercy Riff; a band I didn’t know existed before that night. Sitting directly across from me was one of my […]

10 Years of Blood and Beers: Celebrating a Decade of ‘Shaun Of The Dead’

To this day, I remember exactly where I was the first time I saw Shaun of the Dead in 2004, and why I was watching it. My roommate and I caught a preview for it before another movie we were watching on DVD and immediately ventured over to our local movie place to rent a […]

Senses Fail’s ‘Let It Enfold You,’ A Decade Later

I grew up in a small town, with the closest decent music venue being nearly an hour away from me. It wasn’t easy to find alternative music without a little bit of effort. I discovered new music through friends, MySpace, perusing the CDs at the local Walmart or picking up eye-catching albums at Hot Topic […]

Watch Out!

10 Years Later: Alexisonfire’s ‘Watch Out!’

Alexisonfire seemed to not so much break up as drift apart. Dallas Green’s City and Colour was catching on with listeners. Wade MacNeil was chosen to replace Frank Carter in Gallows. With two of the band’s key members going or gone, George Pettit posted a statement — which wasn’t the most amicable-sounding — announcing the […]

10 Years Later: From First To Last’s ‘Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has A Body Count’

On June 29, 2004, it was summer vacation for me. In just a couple of months my friends and I would be moving on to be sophomores in high school. At the time screamo/emo was growing into “mainstream” popularity. At the time I was into metal and punk. That did not last too long and […]

The Oncoming Storm

Black Hearts Still Reign: 10 Years of Unearth’s ‘The Oncoming Storm’

I discovered Unearth when the song and music video for “Zombie Autopilot” appeared on a Sounds of the Underground Tour CD/DVD sampler I purchased at Hot Topic. If you remember that short-lived (though undeniably awesome) annual summer tour or ever purchased a sampler disc solely in hopes of discovering a new band, you might be […]

Underoath TOCS

EDITORIAL: 10 Years of Underoath’s ‘They’re Only Chasing Safety’

“Believe me, man! If you’re into any of that ‘screamo’ stuff, you’ll love this record! Just give it a shot and let me know what you think”! I can still remember those exact words spoken to me as my friend returned my iPod Nano after a day of uploading it with the contents of his […]
