Flashback: Paramore – Hello Cold World

Back in 2011, pop punk starlets Paramore released the ‘Singles Club‘ EP, a set of four tracks including ‘Monster‘ which was only available from the band’s website. Also featuring on the EP was ‘Hello Cold World‘, the antithesis to Taylor Swift’s ‘22‘, with its much more realistic approach to life as a young person.

Circle Of Reason – Silver Screen

It seems the Brit-melodic-rock scene is alive and well these days. For those of you who don’t know their way around it yet, here’s a little taster for you. Southampton’s Circle Of Reason have been releasing a free track to download each month, taken from their back catalogue.
This month’s offering is ‘Silver Screen‘, taking elements from the alt-rockers of the 00s (think Smashing Pumpkins / early QOTSA). If you like what you see below, you can download it here.

We Are The In Crowd – Manners

The summer may have been and gone, but that doesn’t mean its too late for a bit of that sugary pop-punk we’ve all come to love from We Are The In Crowd. The quintet have just released their new video for ‘Manners‘, picturing the story of a bad breakup (hey, who hasn’t been there?).

Marmozets – Born Young And Free

Already dubbed “the most exciting young band in Britain” by none other than Kerrang!, Marmozets certainly seem to be living up to expectations with their new single ‘Born Young And Free‘. The raw power and fiercesome energy of the track should definitely generate some excitement for new and old fans alike, and with their stunning performances at Reading & Leeds last weekend behind them, there should be many more fans to come..

Close the curtains, turn the lights down and pretend its a cool autumn evening for this one.. The Gaslight Anthem play with your heartstings on their new single for ‘Get Hurt‘ taken from their upcoming album of the same name.

Its a good one..

Pavilions – Futures

Post-hardcore quintet Pavilions have already honed their skills on the live side with the likes of Deaf Havana and Lower Than Atlantis, and are now cementing their refreshingly positive sound on their upcoming new album ‘The Futures Mine To Make‘.

New single ‘Futures‘ features a carefully crafted melodic intro, followed by a full-on rock chorus with some clear influences from album producer Dan Lancaster’s previous work with Don Broco. With such a strong sound, these guys are sure to be doing headline tours of their own in no time..

Linkin Park – Until It’s Gone

Well I couldn’t let today go by without covering this one.. THE soundtrack to your teenage angst, Linkin Park have released the video for ‘Until It’s Gone‘, taken from their new album ‘The Hunting Party‘, out June 17th.

As much as the band have talked about reinventing their sound, this is clearly a Linkin Park song, and not purely because of Chester Bennington’s strained (in a good way) vocals. If anything, its a follow on from 2021’s ‘Living Things’ in terms of the stadium sound, with a more mature perspective.

Watch it now!

I suggest you watch it now..
