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 […]

10 Years Later, TREOS Still Matters: Celebrating ‘Between The Heart And The Synapse’

If you were to look at Pitchfork’s scathing 2.9/10 review of Rise Against’s third studio album today, you’ll find more snark-filled jabs against young adult angst and punk ideologies stuffed into a letter to Ralph Nader than you could shake an X-emblazoned fist at. Plenty has changed in the past ten years since that was […]

RX Bandits Holding ‘Resignation’ Ten Year Anniversary Tour

RX Bandits foreshadowed an announcement today, and many within the industry suspected it would be a tour. They had already been announced to play Skate & Surf on the opposite side of the country than that which they are from, so a tour seemed to make sense. The announcement today was indeed a tour for […]
