Sleepwave Announce Tour Dates And Album Details

Sleepwave is the new band from former Underoath singer Spencer Chamberlain, featuring new band mate Stephen Bowman. They will join Nothing More this August and September for a US tour, culminating in a performance at Aftershock Festival in Sacramento. The band have also released details about their much anticipated debut album, Broken Compass, which will be released on September 16. Visit Alternative Press to hear the first track, Through The Looking Glass.

With Chamberlain at the helm, Underoath became a major force in the post-hardcore scene with two gold albums, multiple Grammy nominations and crossover success unusual for bands in the scene. Now come Sleepwave with their debut album Broken Compass, the next step in the evolution of Spencer Chamberlain. With an even more melodic, accessible sound, sacrificing none of the intense songwriting that garnered Underoath and a massive following, Broken Compass is sure to put Sleepwave on the map from day one; work­ing with producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon, Of Mice and Men), the band has crafted an album of intense anthemic rock.

Alternative Press put Sleepwave on the cover of their Most Anticipated issue in 2013 and described the band as “…unbridled alt-rock , harkening back to the amped-up mania of classic songs by Smashing Pumpkins and Filter.” Sleepwave has already taken their fervent live show to The Used and Taking Back Sunday tour this spring and to festivals like their recent performance at Rock on the Range in Columbus, OH. Sleepwave will tour as support this summer with Nothing More. Headlining dates for Sleepwave including a record release show in Anaheim, CA have been announced.

This Wild Life Premiere Video For New Single, Over It, At Alternative Press

Acoustic punk duo This Wild Life premiere their video for Over It at Alternative Press.

This Wild Life’s album Clouded saw phenomenal first week success on the Billboard charts, debuting as the number 1 Top New Artist, number 1 Top Alternative New Artist, number 49 Digital Album, and the number 17 Independent Album.

Clouded has garnered much critical acclaim. According to Alternative Press it is “…outrageously well-written songs, played well with much skill…everything about this one is a winner” with a four point five out of five star review. Absolute Punk calls it “…one of the most impressive debut albums this year” giving it an eight point five out of ten.

This Wild Life is the result of the hard work of the Long Beach friends, Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso.

Joyce Manor Premieres New Track, Schley, Via Spin.com

Joyce Manor recently shared their new track Schley at SPIN.com.

The band will release their new album Never Hungover Again on July 22 via Epitaph Records.

Never Hungover Again is the rare sort of album that defines a young band. Across their previous two releases (a self-titled release and Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired), Joyce Manor discovered their signature sound. They take the speed and sense of melody of fellow South Bay band the Descendents, the artfully bittersweet lyricism of Jawbreaker and the undeniable heart-on-sleeve honesty of the first two Weezer albums.

The new album was recorded at the end of 2013 with producer Joe Reinhardt at the Lair in Hollywood and was mixed by Tony Hoffer (Supergrass, Belle and Sebastian, M83 and Phoenix). Never Hungover Again captures a complex feeling in 10 precise songs that is part sadness, part loneliness and part anger even when things seem to be going okay. Grantland says the album is “…perfect summer music” and that “…the world needs this album now.” According to Noisey, Never Hungover Again “….will most definitely rule incalculably hard.” With some of the saddest lyrics you’d ever shout along to from the front row, Never Hungover Again is heartbroken pop-punk perfection.

Fans can pre-order Never Hungover Again at the Joyce Manor store. Joyce Manor will play a hometown record release show on July 25 at the El Rey in Los Angeles, several festivals this summer (including FYF in Los Angeles), in addition to a short run with Brand New. Joyce Manor will embark on a headline tour this fall in support of the album.

You can catch Joyce Manor live on the following dates:
5 Jul Toronto, ON Toronto Urban Root Festival
6 Jul Ottawa, ON Ottawa Bluesfest

Joyce Manor Announce Headline Tour

Los Angeles pop-punk outfit Joyce Manor has announced a US headlining tour in support of the new album Never Hungover Again which is out on July 22 on Epitaph Records. Joyce Manor will play FYF Fest in LA as well as supporting select dates with Brand New. Their new single Catalina Fight Song is available on iTunes now.

Joyce Manor was conceived in the back of a car over a cheap bottle of booze in the Disneyland parking lot – the kind of beginning that California dreams are really made of. In 2011, Joyce Manor’s self-titled debut was impactful with its standout anthem Constant Headache. Lauded favourite, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired, was released in 2012 on Asian Man. Joyce Manor has earned cult status within the punk community and Never Hungover Again is the album that will satisfy those who have waited. It’s the speed and sense of melody of the Descendents, the bittersweet lyricism of Jawbreaker and the heart-on-sleeve honesty of blue-album Weezer. It’s the rare sort of album that redefines a young band.

Never Hungover Again was recorded at the end of 2013 with producer Joe Reinhardt at the Lair in Hollywood and was mixed by Tony Hoffer (Supergrass, Belle and Sebastian, M83, and Phoenix). Never Hungover Again captures a complex feeling in 10 precise songs that is part sadness, part loneliness, part anger even when things seem to be going okay.

Roll The Tanks Embarks On Concert Marathon

Los Angeles-based band Roll The Tanks will celebrate their debut album Broke Til Midnight by playing four shows on release day at various Floyd’s 99 Barbershops on May 27. Roll The Tanks will kick things off 11 AM in the Floyd’s Venice location and will wrap-up festivities by 6:30 PM in Burbank.

Fans and curious patrons alike are invited to catch the extravaganza because all shows are free. At each location, 99 raffle tickets will be given away and one winner will be selected for a special grand prize. In addition to prizes, there will be infectious live performances from Roll The Tanks as they play cuts off the album. Those taking photos at the event for Instagram are encouraged to tag the photos using the hashtag #Floyds99Takeover. Selected photos will be chosen and re-posted after the event. Broke Til Midnight is streaming online now in its entirety.

Broke Til Midnight hits right in the gut upon first listen. A record that leaves no room for uncertainty in 13-tracks that beg listeners to hit repeat and enjoy the ride. It helps that band members Danny Carney (vocals/guitar), Aaron Stuart (guitar/ vocals), Mike Wakeman (bass/vocals) and Joe Sirois (drums) are fans of enduring song smiths Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Pixies and The Clash from where they draw inspiration to carry on the torch. “We’re going to make records because that’s what we want to do – make records,” says Carney. “No clunkers, no fillers. Records where you almost die making them.” Though the band didn’t die while making the album, they did have to wait until 12 AM for when their paychecks cleared at the bank in order to pay their bar tabs; hence the album title Broke Til Midnight.

An unpretentious, classic rock inspired “band’s band,” Roll The Tanks are primed and ready to carry the torch for energetic, solid rock music. And as their name implies, they are prepared to flatten all obstacles. And if the Floyd’s marathon doesn’t break them, Roll The Tanks will play a record release show the following night, on May 28 at El Cid in Los Angeles.

Floyd’s 99, the Original Rock ‘N Roll Barbershop for Men and Women®, mixes old-school customer service with the appeal of an experienced, talented staff in a fun, high-energy environment. The brainchild of brothers Paul, Rob and Bill O’Brien, the first Floyd’s 99 shop opened in downtown Denver in 2001. It has since become the fastest-growing group of barbershops in the United States with 73 locations in 12 states, and nine shops in various stages of development. From humble beginnings, the brand’s success is built on introducing clients to the novel idea of getting a great haircut at a reasonable price in a unique atmosphere. Floyd’s 99 has been actively involved in every community where a shop has opened since the earliest days. With personal connections to Type 1 Diabetes, Floyd’s 99 is a strong supporter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), the largest charitable funder of T1D research. For more information, visit www.floydsbarbershop.com.

Floyd’s Barbershop Schedule:
11:00 AM – Venice, CA (609 Lincoln Blvd.)
01:00 PM – Santa Monica, CA (11431 Santa Monica Blvd.)
04:00 PM – North Hollywood, CA (1555 N. Cahuenga Blvd.)
06:00 PM – Burbank, CA (1040 N. Hollywood Way)
