Fresh Pressed [new music friday] – 274

What better way to kick off a weekend than with new music? Fridays are always chock full of the latest songs and albums ready to be the soundtrack to everyone’s antics, and here you’ll find some of the week’s standout releases. Whether you’re ready to spin an anticipated song from a favorite artist or just take a look at what’s out there, there are a whole lot of tunes to dive right into. Who knows—maybe you’ll find your next obsession.

Neck Deep
“Heartbreak of the Century”

It doesn’t get more peak Neck Deep than their latest single, “Heartbreak of the Century”. It’s basically a 3-minute long hook as the band offers their first song since last May’s “STFU”—the only bad part about this is that there isn’t an accompanying album announcement. Fortunately, “Heartbreak of the Century” is good enough to hold you over til it comes someday.

All Time Low
“Modern Love”

All Time Low has a comfortable and familiar thing going for them on the upcoming Tell Me I’m Alive. Their new single “Modern Love” is headlined by an infectious melody and Alex Gaskarth’s mesmerizing pipes—it just makes you go, “Yep, that’s an All Time Low song,” and sometimes you need that consistency in life. 

The Used
“People Are Vomit”

Leave it to The Used to tell it like it is. “People Are Vomit” is loud and proud in a way that can only be done by them. The aggressive tone of the track catapults to another level in the bridge, making it easy hype material for their new album out in May.

Our Last Night

You almost have to wonder why it took so long for Our Last Night to cover Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” but they’ve finally come through. Their rendition of the track comes off as if they wrote it themselves, peaking at the guttural screams during that whole “sexy baby” part.

Sleep Token

Rock’s latest “it” band just keeps growing. Sleep Token, who are set to explode with their new album beyond measures currently unimaginable, unveils a massive new track in “Vore”. A punishing metal-infused anthem, the five-minute cut sets them apart from not only other bands in the genre but music in general.

The Amity Affliction
“I See Dead People”

The Amity Affliction’s “I See Dead People” comes barreling out of the gates with its heavy nature and impactful screams. It’ll be a welcome treat for fans wanting something bigger and louder because this might be the heaviest the band has ever been.


Alex DeLeon is back, and he’s going back to his roots. The Cab frontman, under his solo moniker Bohnes, has released “Vicious” from his new LP, which is his first track in years. A lot has changed: He’s shaken off his dark/moody pop aspirations for something more upbeat and vibrant, making it almost a Cab successor rather than something different entirely.

Skrillex – Quest for Fire
Pink – Trustfall
Lana Del Rey – “A&W”

Bury Tomorrow – “Heretic”
Janelle Monae – “Float”
