We Were Sharks is proving once again that pop-punk is not dead with the colorful premiere of their new music video ‘Hotel Beds.’ Just weeks away from the release of their upcoming album “Lost Touch,” these tenacious Canadians have kicked of their new tour on February 2, marking their third tour since signing to Victory Records.“Lost Touch” will be available everywhere on February 23, 2018.

The six-piece recently shook things up with release of the video ‘Ashley,’ a gushy love song about the bad girl that is always on your mind. ‘Hotel Beds’ is the antithesis, as vocalist Randy Frobel explains, “This is more like an anti-love song about that one person who has you wrapped around their finger, as the lyric goes.” Guitarist Colin Jacques concurs, “This song has an anxiousness to it. It’s about that one person who truly has a hold on you. Every song you hear seems to be about them. Every notification on your phone could be them. Every bit of you is drawn to that person, and you just can’t shake them out of your head.” Continue reading »

There was no YouTube or Spotify back then, this was your key to what was new and upcoming. It’s an honor to know that we’re part of a team that has made a huge impact in the scene, and we hope that there’s a kid who finds us and feels as excited as we did when we found those bands.”

Alternate rockers from Gold coast of Brisbane, Awaken I am, are set to release their sophomore album, “Blind Love” on the 29th of September under Victory records. Awaken I am, raised to fame when their debut album “Shields and Crowns” reached the #3 spot on I-tunes Metal chart. Having toured with Chiodos, The Devil Wears Prada and Emarosa in the past, the band made headlines when they appeared at the So What Festival in Dallas. Predominant in the Australian scene, the band bagged a worldwide deal with Victory records at the end 2016.

Right at the outset the band’s sound is very different from what I’ve heard over the years, a far cry from the traditional alt-Rock. The band however takes a bold step while shaping its music as it pushes itself to the realms of Pop-Rock. The songs have upbeat soundscapes, even though the songs speak of struggles with ones past. Be it for the staccato guitar riffs that fill up the songs, or the electronic elements, the songs do get pretty catchy at the chorus. Adam has an impressive vocal range and showcases his style as he juggles rap, with an occasional falsetto and ties it up beautifully with his melodies on the choruses. Continue reading »
