Over the last 4 years since we announced our hiatus, there have always been people asking me when the band  is going to come back and release new material. What I… Read more »

EDM DJ Illenium isn’t a stranger to the alternative scene. During his Los Angeles, CA, shows on February 2 and 3 at SoFi Stadium, he brought out several special guests. The tour is to support his self-titled independent release, which arrived last spring. Illenium’s exploration into the alt scene isn’t unheard of.

Mixing EDM and metalcore is on the rise. The Amity Affliction is the most recent artist to jump on this trend and has reimagined their song “Show Me Your God” with DJ PROBLM CHLD. The bouncy trance, sometimes dubstep-esqe beat, is a different way to listen to the Australian act. Earlier this year, the group also dropped their new album, Not Without My Ghosts, which includes features from phem and posthumous rapper Louie Knuxx. With reworked songs, sometimes it can take time to get used to new sounds, flow, and even sometimes fewer vocals. But guitarist Dan Brown says, “I… Read more »


The Rocket Summer: A Comeback from a Band Who Never Left

It’s a pretty beginning of a fall afternoon when I meet up with Bryce Avery, better known as The Rocket Summer at a park in Los Angeles. After about 10 minutes of trying and failing to locate each other in the park, we finally managed to find our way. We caught up quickly after our last meeting at this summer’s APMAs, and then took a nice hike up the trails–me in heels, and him in a leather jacket–to help photographer Erica Lauren get the perfect pictures before coming back down to talk about his “not really a comeback” comeback. The… Read more »

Had my mother not thrown out a box labeled “Emotionless Catalyst” during my parents’ most recent move, someone would’ve stumbled over dozens of composition notebooks filled with Sonny Moore fanfiction, and my feelings would have spilled out. If you had the patience to flip past New Found Glory drawings and lyrics and managed to find a September 17, 2005 date, you would probably see the day I more than likely fell out of love with Fall Out Boy. For other seasoned fangurls, you might be racking your brains now, trying to piece together… Read more »
