    oh my god, I'm back on my bullshit Prestigious

    New Capsize album is quite good. Kinda disappointed in the big change to their sound, hopefully I'll get over that though.

  3. New Relient K is seriously incredible. I'm utterly shocked by how great it is.

    The band I play bass for, Blind Breed, released an album today! It's a full-length for $6 and should be up now on amazon and iTunes as well as

    Otherwise I might check out new Crown the Empire and Leeland.

    Spotify or GTFO. ;-)

    Lots of big metal releases missing here... Aeges, Black Crown Initiate, Despised Icon, Dust Moth and Revocation all dropped new full lengths today.

    New Relient K is banging.... it's been on repeat since last week when they premiered it on Pandora.

    Also, OMG the new Regina Spektor song has brought life to my Friday! I have missed her so much!

    we are nothing more than mannequins Prestigious

    Crown the Empire-"Retrograde"
    Relient K-"Air for Free"

    Some new singles I'm checking out/have been listening to lately. Some of these may have come out a couple weeks ago...

    Against Me!-"333"
    Beach Slang-"Punks in a Disco Bar"
    Every Time I Die-"Glitches"
    Islander-"Think It Over"
    Korn-"Rotting in Vain"
    Norma Jean-"1,000,000 Watts" & "Synthetic Sun"
    Prophets of Rage-"Prophets of Rage"
    Red Fang-"Flies"
    The Acacia Strain-"Sensory Deprivation"
    The Amity Affliction-"This Could Be Heartbreak"
    The Color Morale-"Clip Paper Wings"
    The Devil Wears Prada-"Daughter"
    Touche Amore-"Displacement"
    Wilco-"If I Ever Was a Child" & "Locator"
    Young Guns-"Mad World"
    Young the Giant-"Jungle Youth"

    I'm gonna put together a playlist to listen to at work today. So far I've been really impressed with the new Touche Amore and The Devil Wears Prada songs. I like "Glitches" but so far I think I prefer "The Coin Has A Say" over it. Low Teens is easily my most anticipated album of the year and I don't know how I'm going to wait another 2 months for it!

    the first two songs that came out were really bad. doesn't really deserve to be under that moniker, sounds so differently and hits different themes

    That's a shame, I loved that album from 08 and saw him with Vinnie from the movie life around the same time, was a great show. I'll still check this out though. My band actually used to open for Valencia back in 05 at the troc in Philly. Good times ha

    Mystery is the secret ingredient Prestigious

    Thank you for posting about the singles. There are a lot of good ones today. I often miss them.

    Yeah I was surprised by an ad I saw two weeks ago, so I haven't had to wait for it too long.

    Lurking AP since 2005. Lurking Chorus since 2016.

    Relient K's new record probably my favorite so far this year. Forevermore is the surprise of the year for me. Never really got into the band. It seems to be a pretty big step up from what I've heard before. Gonna definitely check out Capsize.

    Came in here to post about Bear's Den! I wasn't a huge fan of the lead single, but the album is shaping up nicely on first listen.

    The tone reminds me almost of a more folky sounding War On Drugs.

  20. I think it's on Spotify. Just wasn't sure if it was up already or not because Spotify uploads have been screwy for us lately

    Cautiously pessimistic Prestigious

    Relient K is fantastic.
  22. ianzandi


    What are the odds that Relient K will get their first #1 album? Since streaming is taken into account now and there aren't any other major releases, I could definitely see it happening this time. They are still huge in the Christian crowd.

    Next Show - Foals April 22nd

    I'll be checking out:

    Despised Icon
    Relient K
    Crown the Empire

    Doubt any of these will stick for me but I'll give them a shot

    not even close. last one peaked at 16, they still need to do a good 80k to beat drake. doubt they even hit the top 10

    How was Promise of Redemption not on this list? Thanks for pointing that out, forgot about that.

    Also thanks to all the users who add the singles that come out every week too.
