2 Minute Minor are back with their sophomore release bringing old-school youthcrew, positive hardcore back to listeners who really should be looking out for this.

For those who aren’t familiar with 2 Minute Minor, the band is a Chicago-based old-school positive hardcore punk/Oi band whose main stance is promoting unity and human rights.  Going along with this they trace influences back to 80’s hardcore bands and the influence of those bands is unmistakable in their music.  As is the case in the genre, the band is about promoting a Positive Mental Attitude while tackling issues such as substance abuse, racism, homelessness, sexism, and classism, while maintaining a sense of humor that keeps the music approachable.  This time 2MM recorded the album in Kalamazoo, MI with Jeff Hostetler with band member Zach Bridier doing the mixing and Sef Idle at Simpul Studios handling the mastering.

So, 14 songs and 16 minutes…my first thought is that this will be entertaining if nothing else since I enjoyed their first album.  For those who understand hockey at all, the intro with some radio commentary on the Stanley Cup with a Chicago Blackhawks win over rivals Detroit, is perfectly fitting and then later the song about fighting racists with Bob Probert (ex-Blackhawk and Red Wing enforcer) is a great touch, especially working in a “Bruise Brothers” reference.

Dream Patrol is an international hard rock / classic rock band founded by Ronnie König (Signum Regis) in 2016. The band members are from USA, Slovakia, Austria and Czech Republic. Watch the video below where Eli Prinsen answers the questions you wanted to ask 🙂

A first single was released on March 19th, check out the lyric video for ‘Dream Patrol’ below.

The inspiration for the band name comes from the 80s horror movie A Nightmare on Elm Street, in which a demon-like creature would attack you while you were sleeping. With Dream Patrol you shall fear no more. It is a special office of combat against mind-invaders, working for you overtime, whenever you put on your headphones and start daydreaming.

Broadside have released a new video for ‘Summer Stained,’ taken from the bands highly-acclaimed sophomore album “Paradise.” The heart-tugging clip takes an internal look at the bands relationships as seen through the eyes of their fans. The video also commemorates their life on tour, which starts tonight across Europe before creating more memories on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour.

The video for ‘Summer Stained’ can be watched below.

Asking fans to submit photos of their Broadside memories, vocalist Ollie Baxxter explains, “With the progression of social media and everybody having a camera in their pocket, a lot of moments are captured but unseen. We always meet so many people on tour and being able to relive those encounters again without the fear of ‘I hope I’m more than just a photograph’ was really inspirational. The fact that thousands of photos poured in shows that people really care about us (as we do them). The love is more than appreciated.” Continue reading »

Minneapolis-based rock band Fades Away has emerged from a three year hiatus with a new album entitled “Resurrection Part I.” With hard hitting guitars, soaring vocal melodies and pounding drums, the album melds the genres of metal, hard rock and prog perfectly and is sure to please fans of all three. The first single from the album, “Sad State Of Affairs…” was released to national radio today.

After years of touring and sharing the stage with wildly successful bands like Skillet, Brian “Head” Welch (guitarist from Korn and Love & Death),Thousand Foot Krutch, Fireflight, RED and Throw The Fight, the members of Fades Away took a break in order to focus on family and other daily rigors of life. The release of “Resurrection Part I” heralds a revitalized direction for the band’s next chapter and, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the band awakens as a new creature – recognizable yet distinctly different.
