Philadelphia’s pop-punk 6-piece The Wonder Years are streaming their new album ‘Sleeping On Trash: A Collection of Songs Recorded 2005-2010’ on their YouTube channel. If you haven’t heard of the band before, this is a good opportunity to catch up on their past releases (and then you can pretend you’ve always been a fan..).
If you live in the States, you can catch them on tour with Fireworks, Hostage Calm and Misser this March. They’ll also be hitting the road in the summer for the Vans Warped Tour (which I’ve always wanted to go to. Shame I live in the wrong country!). UK readers, they’re playing Slam Dunk Festival in May.
Here’s my favourite of the album tracks, ‘Zip Lock’. Think early New Found Glory at their best..
Its still snowing here (booo) so I’ve been stuck indoors again. Today consisted of trying to remove the rust from a Wii remote. It did not work. Luckily, after an hour or so of trying, I found another controller.
Anyway, here’s a bit of feel-good fun to cheer everyone up. Herts punk-rockers Lower Than Atlantis have released their new video for ‘Go On Strike’, taken from their third album ‘Changing Tune’ out now. Its the perfect soundtrack for anyone who thinks Christmas finished too early last year..
You can catch the band on tour in the UK this April. Dates on their facebook here.
Before I get too Christmas obsessed (and believe me, I’m getting there), here’s a nice sunny video so we can all pretend its not the shortest day of the year. Major points go to Deaf Havana for this bit of fun (and its refreshing to see a band that aren’t from London). Who doesn’t wish they were at the beach in July after watching this?
I can’t say I’ve listened to Dead Havana too much before I heard this song, but having done a bit of research, I’d definitely recommend checking them out. If you like this, look up ‘Little White Lies’ and go from there.. RC xx
I’m a real sucker for a music video with a storyline, so I loved this new one from Greenday straight away. ‘Stray Heart’ is pop-punk at its best, upbeat with an angsty core. Its from ¡Dos!, part of the band’s ‘Uno, Dos, Tre’ series.
For those of you who are interested, I went to see the Greenday musical, ‘American Idiot’ last weekend – read about it here.
