Steady/Steady have been working on some music with Michael Govaere (ex-Every Avenue). We are premiering a new song called "Pseudo" - give it a listen in the replies. The song is built up by a constant kick-drum, and the chorus sounds more like a William Beckett solo track than the southern rock tinge of Every Avenue, equipped with "oh-oh-oh's" and everything. It was mastered by John Naclerio at Nada Recording Studio (Brand New, My Chemical Romance). If you like what you hear, be on the look out for the band's debut EP in April.

Lots of Nate Ruess news over the past few days -- that's what happens when a new act gets rolled out. Anyway, Nate Harold has been announced as Nate's bass player. Also, to try and combine multiple stories into one: According to a press release today, Nate's latest single "contains backing vocals from Swedish muse, Lykke Li, along with guitar riffs from iconic Red Hot Chili Peppers’ guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer."

This is probably my favorite song I've ever written. The one I've listened to the most on repeat. And I can't pinpoint what it is about it that makes its so special to me. Which makes me love it even more.

I've long had an obsession with "track ones" on an album. There's just something about setting the stage for an entire experience that has always captivated me. If you blow track one, it's sometimes impossible to recover. I've always felt like Cartel nailed it with "Say Anything (Else)" on Chroma, and today we're continuing our series of acoustic sessions with a performance of that very song. Don't forget that the band are heading out on a tour to support the 10 year anniversary of this album and you should probably make sure you grab it on vinyl as well. The video of this pretty damn awesome performance, and the band's upcoming tour dates, can be found in the replies.

I recently spoke with Silverstein vocalist Shane Told for a very long in-depth interview in which we talked about the Discovering The Waterfront ten-year anniversary headliner, where he was at personally when writing the record, signing to Rise Records, new album I Am Alive In Everything I Touch, and more. This is one of my favorite interviews that I've ever done, and I hope everyone takes the time to check it out. You can read it here.
Yeah man, I was really trying to find myself at that time, I think. I think “Call It Karma” was a song that really summed that up, the lyrics for that song were written very much how I write a lot of songs, where there are multiple meanings. I told...

I'm very excited to share a brand new song off Too Close To Touch's upcoming debut record, Nerve Endings, which comes out March 24th via Epitaph Records. "Hell To Pay" deals with the difficult reality of the absentee father, a reality I've not only experienced, but one that many others have experienced as well. To drive it home, The Word Alive vocalist Telle Smith comes in to deliver one of the best guest vocal spots I've heard in a long time. If you liked what you heard, you can pre-order the record. Head to the replies to check out the song.

In a recent interview Chad Gilbert said that a collaboration between New Found Glory and Paramore has a really good chance of happening. The band also talk about Blink-182, 5 Seconds of Summer, and more.
The thing about 5 Seconds of Summer is that basically, they’re a pop band and people wanna give them longevity and in order for them to have longevity, they need credibility. That happens all the time with all types of music. A rapper will come out of nowhere and they want to give him credibility so they’ll say that he’s friends with this [other guy]. [Even in] country, they struggle with artistes having credibility. I think that that always happens and I think that people can be fed...
