In perfect timing for summer, Broadside have released their second full length, Paradise, an album filled with the Southern California-tinged pop punk fitting for the season.

Originally hailing from Richmond, Virginia, Broadside has relocated to Los Angeles and seems to have taken the environment to heart.  For Paradise, the band teamed up again with producer Kyle Black (New Found Glory, All Time Low), and has spent the last couple years since their debut, Old Bones (2015), relentlessly touring and gathering accolades.  From being named “Musician of the Month” in April 2017 by Alternative Press to being named “Best International Newcomer” by Rock Sound, to having Paradise being named as “One of 2017’s Most Anticipated albums” by AP and gathering fans at Warped Tour in 2016, the band has certainly demonstrated the appeal of their sound to audiences and critics alike.   The band traces their roots back to 2010 and released a 5 song ep in 2011 that was re-recorded and expanded in 2012 for an independent release before they recruited current lead vocalist Ollie Baxxter in 2013.  Add in some touring and then signing to Victory Records and the band released their debut album Old Bones in 2015 which was followed up by the aforementioned Warped Tour and acclaim.

Providing raw commentary on the destructive state of the world today, Conveyer is streaming “No Future,” their newest album, a day ahead of its release. With an amplified sound and in your face aggression, “No Future” oversteps the trends in today’s hardcore underground. Pick up “No Future” tomorrow everywhere music is sold.

Front-man Danny Adams divulges, “You’re going to experience life in a way that both affirms and challenges your understanding of loss and heartache, and I want you to know that the times where your certainty is threatened by new shades of tragedy, it doesn’t mean your entire world is unravelling. Even when I don’t understand what’s happening, I choose to have hope and faith that I’m going to be okay, just as I am convinced that the sun will rise tomorrow.”

Guitarist Ty Brooks adds, “We are so excited that No Future is finally here. We put a lot of work into this record and we are so happy with the end result. A huge thank you to everyone at Silver Bullet Studio for all their hard work that went into this release. And to everyone else, we’ll see you at a show soon!” Continue reading »

Conveyer is the definition of the hardcore music genre in 2017. Their video ‘No Future,’ the title track from their new album set for release on Victory Records on June 23 sonically and visually encapsulates what fans of the genre have been waiting for. An ode to crashing dreams and forgotten plans of the future, vocalist Danny Adams spells it out, “’No Future’ is the title track for the record because we felt it had to be as straight-forward as the meaning behind it.”

“Human beings are meant to exist in a perfect place, but we’ve somehow deprived ourselves of the desire to venerate perfect things,” Adams explains. “I’m constantly reminded that I’m unequipped to accept that my existence is limited to this life. It’s also not a typical sounding Conveyer song – we wanted to bleed out some older influences like Buried Alive and Figure Four. Continue reading »

“People are fed up and I am certainly fed up,” barks Marcos Leal, vocalist for melodic thrashers Shattered Sun. The raw, loud, unapologetic and honest front-man connects the dots on all things vexing him, from the bands near-implosion to the worldwide state of affairs. Today, the Texas-bred troop has released ‘Burn It Down,’ the first video and details behind their sophomore album, “The Evolution Of Anger,” set for release on July 21 on Victory Records.

On the track, Leal admits, “We almost burned this band into the ground internally.” Guitarist Daniel Trejo decided to leave the band in late 2015, just as the band’s demons came out to haunt them before creating The Evolution Of Anger. “Between all the things we have done over the years, things finally came to the surface. Once Daniel came back into the fold, the first song he showed me was ‘Burn it Down,’ and it is a perfect reflection of what occurred within Shattered Sun.” Continue reading »
