Against The Current Release Arena-Rock Anthem “silent stranger”

We all love a powerful frontwoman, and Against The Current’s Chrissy Costanza fits the bill. The band’s new single “silent stranger” introduces fans to their “nightmare era,” which is chock-full of black and white imagery and a dark-pop edge that elevates their classic sound. It’s all about shedding the persona they’ve created for themselves and the challenges of reclaiming their authentic identity. There comes a point when the reflection in the mirror looks like a complete stranger, which Costanza sings in the lyrics, “I know all the lies/I brought to life/Now I don’t know how to be someone real/Hate that… Read more »

Barenaked Ladies singing for the kids

A children’s album, a new studio effort and a cruise are on the docket for Canadian rock band Barenaked Ladies next year. The quintet is in a Toronto studio finishing up the children’s set with Michael Phillip, who produced its 1992 debut “Gordon” and 1996’s “Born on a Pirate Ship.” The as-yet-untitled record, which boasts such tunes as “Humongous Tree” and “Polywog in a Bog,” should come out in the spring on the group’s own Desperation Records label. “We wrote just as hard for these as we did for any other record, but you have to think from a kids’… Read more »


Hot Hot Heat wants to bring "Happiness" to the arenas.

“We grew up in a small town and didn’t know anything about the music industry or major labels,” he recalled. “All I knew was that Nirvana had signed to Sub Pop, and I thought that was cool.” Although Hot Hot Heat got its start as a screamo band, by the time it made contact with Sub Pop, its sound had mutated into what would soon be known as dance-punk. The band stood at the forefront of a movement that would explode on the indie rock scene within another year. Sub Pop head of A&R (artists and repertoire) Tony Kiewel realized… Read more »
