You may know Providence, RI's The Illumination as a post-hardcore outfit, but they've reinvented themselves as a rock band similar to 30 Seconds to Mars and Imagine Dragons. Head to the replies to see their new lyric video for "A Chance to Change My Ways," an acoustic reworking of a song that originally appeared on their 2013 InVogue Records debut, Departures. They'll be releasing a new single titled "Wish You Away" later this spring.

French metalcore band All the Shelters recently performed an acoustic version of their song "At Heaven's Gate" from last year's Famined Records debut Chasing Light. It's a far cry from the band's typical sound, as you might expect, but there's nothing wrong with a little change of pace. Check that video out in the replies.

Raquel Banks talked to Shaun Cooper from Taking Back Sunday for 34th Street.
It’s just part of life, and I don’t read the internet except for my Twitter feed, so I don’t see what other bands are up to or what other people are saying about our band. I’m a grown-ass man. I’ve got enough going on in my life with my wife and my kid, and I’m just a pretty happy guy. I’m living my dream, so when there’s drama, I don’t care or really even give it much of a second thought because it doesn’t mean anything. People get all hyped up about stuff on the internet for a couple days, and everyone likes complaining and bitching and moaning and talking shit and at the end of the day, it doesn’t change my...

It looks like Mest is getting back together for some shows.
Mest was formed in 1995 on the SouthSide of Chicago in a town called Blue Island by the singer Tony Lovato and his cousin Matt Lovato the bassist. After touring the world for many years and releasing 5 records the band decided to part ways in 2005. No talks of ever playing together again had taken place until a couple months ago when Matt sent a message to Tony telling him his daughter was learning Mest songs on the bass guitar and she demanded he tell him. Through that one message it lead to the conversation of what it would be like to get on stage together with the original lineup and play a couple shows. Tony and Matt then...
