Turn up the volume + get ready to take on the day,
it’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…
Who: Chicago and pop punk bands go together like peanut butter and jelly (or a less cliché comparison), and the city’s latest act Action/Adventure is the proof.
What: The band’s new single “Tuck Everlasting” reminds us not to give up on the things that make us feel alive.
Why: Action/Adventure brings all the passion and energy of a live show into “Tuck Everlasting”, a fast paced pop punk track that’ll have you moshing along in no time.

“We’ve all been in bands for quite some time and we’ve all been trying pursing music since we were all in high school… Action/Adventure has been around for the past 5 years and we’ve seen bands break up while others have blown up. Seeing this has only reinforced our resolve as we take steps to start the next chapter as a band. We’re dedicated to producing music from the heart that others can hopefully relate to and draw strength from.” – Blake Evaristo, vocalist for Action/Adventure
Who: Ontario’s Arcane Ghosts was once just an idea over a couple beers at a dive bar. Fast forward a few years and they’re now an experimental alt-rock band that has us excited to hear more.
What: Arcane Ghosts brings the worlds of pop punk and post hardcore together in a brand new way on “Rooftops”.
Why: It’s hard not to sing along to a good pop punk song and it’s hard not to fall in love with a well produced rock jam. On “Rooftops”, we’re offered both in one catchy little package.

“Hey everyone, Matt from Arcane Ghosts here. Check out our brand new single ‘Rooftops’, a song about those shows where nothing is going right. Whether it’s you can’t seem to get your guitar in tune, you’re constantly playing off time, or just playing a completely different song than your band mates. We’ve all been there.” – Matt Grellmann, bassist and vocalist for Arcane Ghosts
