New EP by Tommy Red -" I Wanna Be Exploited"

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.

The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”

This new project showcases Tommy’s style and talent as an artist, marking his fondness for garage rock, 60s beats and grunge-inspired alt-rock in equal doses. His sound is very organic and direct, but it isn’t just about grit and energy. There is a really unique sense of melody, which informs Tommy Red’s songwriting style, and in particular, this release, which is a strong blend of melody and upbeat vibes.

“I wanna Be Exploited” is a lot of fun to listen to, not only because of the lyrics and edgy attitude you will find in every track, but also due to the production value, which hits the mark in all the right way. The mood of this single certainly remind me of influential performers such as Alice In Chains, Nirvana and Audioslave, although Tommy’s work has its own personality and identity, without feeling too closely tied to the work of others who may influence him or inspire him.

“I Wanna Be Exploited” will definitely be right up your alley, particularly if you are the kind of person who, like me, enjoys rock music with a warm vintage tone. Tommy Red delivers loads of attitude, great hooks and amazing production to value to bring it all together. On “I Wanna Be Exploited,” the mix is really balanced, with a bright, yet never harsh mid-range that allows all of the song’s natural harmonics to become a vital, full part of the sound of this release.

New video "Call Me Anti-Social" by New Found Glory

2018-05-17 18:56:28 UTC

Unnamed %284%29

Check out what happens when three outcasts take on the "cool kids" at the start of the summer in New Found Glory's recently released music video for "Call Me Anti-Social". The track is from the band's 9th Studio Album, Makes Me Sick, which was released last Spring. 

May 17, 2018 - Coral Springs, FL - Meet Sam, Brooke, and Jimmy - 3 best friends. Their favorite things to do are play 007 GoldenEye on Nintendo 64, talk about their favorite messy projects in science class, and most of all raid abandoned construction sites for what they consider to be treasure (i.e. wood, nails, screws and the occasional tool). They used to play Mario Kart more than 007 but all agreed that it made them too stressed out (especially Jimmy). They all became close friends by finding a common bond. You see, what first felt like rejection ended up being the road that led them to each other. Being an outcast brought them together which quickly felt like true friendship. The kind of friendship that matters - not status, not perfect grades, and not caring what is considered cool or not. They loved how different each of them were and always encouraged each other's individuality.

It was the first day of summer break. Sam's older brother, Troy, and his high school clique were celebrating with one of their typical parties. As if they didn't throw these parties all year already, summer was just another excuse. Also Troy and Sam's parents were away at the lake for the weekend so the opportunity to break all the rules was there. Sam, Brooke, and Jimmy hated summer with a passion. They felt too insecure for the big social gatherings, bathing suits, partying and all the other stuff they didn't relate to or understand the point of. It just seemed like a waste of time to them. Plus from past experiences, they usually were made to feel unwelcome. That's probably the reason this party triggered them the most. They felt it was time to show they were proud of the weird little family they became. Anti-Social to some but best friends to each other.

Feeling inspired by one of their clever heroes Kevin McAlister from the Christmas classic Home Alone, combined with some of their favorite scenes from the old box of horror VHS tapes they found; Sam, Brooke, and Jimmy had all they needed to devise the ultimate prank. Unfortunately for Troy and his clique, Sam, Brooke, and Jimmy never really learned what it meant to go too far. Movies are fantasy but this was real life.

In addition to the music video, New Found Glory has announced they are releasing a deluxe version of the album called Makes Me Sick Again.  New Found Glory is officially kicking off The Sick Tour with support from Bayside, The Movielife, and former Yellowcard vocalist William Ryan Key in Orlando, FL. The tour will start tonight with a Sold Out show in Orlando, FL, traveling to over 25 cities before wrapping up on June 22nd in Dallas, TX. Many cities have low-ticket warnings with some already sold out. Be sure to head to http://newfoundglory.shofetti.com/ for a fully updated list of venues and tickets.

New single "Baby" by Basement Revolver

2018-05-16 05:03:41 UTC

Unnamed %282%29

The SirensSound presents the new single "Baby" by Basement Revolver.

"Baby is about feeling sad and down even though you are generally happy about everything and everyone in your life. It’s about feeling confused about what I want in life, and how that affects other people. It is about crying a lot and feeling like I was burdening my partner with those questions. It is also about my tendency to retreat when things get too overwhelming, to spend all day and night in my bed and watching netflix and eating doritos. "Baby" was written at a point in my relationship where I was so happy with my partner and with the things in my life at that point – but I felt an overall dissatisfaction and sadness that I couldn’t explain. I’d be having a really nice date, and I would start crying, and I didn’t know why. Sadness was just there, sitting with me in uncertainty. So I dealt with it by trying to sleep it off, or hanging out on my own. I felt like this depressive state was affecting those around me in a negative way and I felt guilty about that.

The chorus on this one pretty much states clearly how I was feeling – “Baby I’m so sorry, I’m trying my best to figure this out, I swear that I’m so happy, this crying won’t fix what’s already broken and dead, just give me some time”.

"Baby" will be part of the new album ‘Heavy Eyes’ out this summer via Sonic Unyon (North America) & fear of missing out (UK).
