In 2021 the video of an unknown young punk band from Los Angeles went viral. It was the start of a new generation of punk bands. In the months after that, the band released  “Oh!“, “Talking To Myself” and “Growing Up“. Today The Linda Lindas shared a cover of The Go-Go’s classic “Tonite”.

And even after we started to write our own songs, we never stopped playing ‘Tonite.’ We love the idea of us going out and owning our town, and ‘Tonite’ is as fun to play as it is empowering––especially the part where we all sing together. ‘We rule the streets tonite until the morning light’ and so should our fans. Because the cover is such a hit at shows, we decided to record a studio version to pay tribute to the greatest all-female rock band of all time, a crucial part of the L.A. punk scene, and [Read More]

July 14, 2022

  New York City native Des Rocs has released a compelling new video for his new single, Manic Memories. This is the first single released after his 2021 debut album A Real Good Person In A Real Bad Place. The video is stellar as it brings to life a depth of emotions, all the while spotlighting Des Rocs. This single is just the beginning as he announced he will be independently releasing a string of new singles this year.   Danny Rocco best known as his stage name, Des Rocs explains,   “Ever since I was big enough to sling a guitar around my shoulder, I’ve worshiped at the altar of rock music and the community that defines it. I began the holy ritual of shows in DIY basements and sweaty dive bars. Ever since then, I’ve worn my independence as a badge of honor. In my bones I’m still that same 13 year old hustling demos outside venues before catching the last train home from Penn Station. That’s why today feels like the perfect day to [Read More]

Mayday Parade release new single “Thunder”

July 10, 2022

Alternative band Mayday Parade have released their new energetic single “Thunder”, before they started touring last Friday at the Sad Summer Fest. The song was produced by multi platinum-producer Zack Odom & Kenneth Mount and is taken from their 2021 studio album “What It Means To Fall Apart”. „Thunder” is a song I wrote about being in a long-term relationship, feeling like at times the fire is gone but that it’s still worth holding onto. Don’t give up! All relationships are tough but the good ones are worth it.“ Brooks Betts (guitarist) Mayday Parade will be on tour with their energetic shows for the rest of the year. They’ll also play on all three When We Were Young festivals in Las Vegas in the fall. For further tour info go to https://maydayparade.com/#tour.

The band also released a masterfully cinematic video for their new song “The Greatest Fear”, which shows them in the midst of a stunning backdrop. “The greatest fear, the one we all share; this song is about a connecting power which we all have to face – death”, says Winston McCall. “The goal was to create a song, which doesn’t see death as something that seperates us, but something which connects us all on our way. Musically we wanted to create a song that fits the concept. It’s heavy, it’s epic and when it hits, it leaves an impression.” “The Greatest Fear” follows the release [Read More]

Check out our interview below:   * * * * * * * We wanted to thank you for your time to talk with us. American Dreams is now out and it is a stellar anthemic track. You blew us away. Can you tell us about that song and how it came about?   Yes, absolutely. I wrote that song, to begin with I had that little acoustic guitar reverb thing, that guitar riff in my head so I put it out on guitar and then you know, I like to think the best song is kind of just like “spit” out of me. To be honest, it is more or less kind of like my homage of how much I love the [Read More]
