The eight-song album was recorded at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, Pa. by producer Will Yip (Code Orange, Defeater, Quicksand, Turnstile), On Circles marks the most organic writing and recording sessions in Caspian‘s 15-year history. Together for four week-long songwriting sessions, the band opted for music gleaming with visceral impact instead of over-thought tangles, over-arching concepts and drawn-out crescendos.

Caspian have released four albums: The Four Trees (2007), Tertia (2009), Waking Season (2012) and Dust and Disquiet (2015). Since the Beverly, Mass.-based band’s inception, they’ve earned accolade upon accolade for their sweeping, cinematic music. 2015’s Dust and Disquiet was hailed by Noisey as “the life-affirming soundtrack you need in your life,Brooklyn Vegan exclaimed “eardrums will be blown and jaws will be dropped” upon hearing the 10-song release, while Spin described the sextet’s output as “epic, wordless orchestral swells on the lush, layered, and crushingly pretty.

Maroon 5’s New Hit Single “Memories” Out Now – #1 on Hot AC

The band’s tour announcement follows the debut of their most recent single, “Memories” (222 Records/ Interscope Records).  The release of “Memories”marks the first new music from the Los Angeles band since the release of their global anthem “Girls Like You.” Produced by Adam Levine and The Monsters & Strangerz and Executive Produced by Jacob “J Kash” Hindlin, “Memories” marks a moment of creative and personal progression for the musicians. The minimalist ballad starkly pairs a lilting clean guitar with chantable and evocative lyrics from Levine. In addition to representing another sonic side, it tackles uncharted subject matter for the group— namely loss—but from a different angle.

Following its release, “Memories” quickly claimed Maroon 5’s 22nd appearance on Billboard Hot 100’s Top 40. The track is currently holding at peak position #4 on Billboard Hot 100 chart, their 10th Top 5, and their 12th Top 10 this decade; that includes at least one new song sent into the Top 10 each year since 2011. The track just reached #1 on Billboard Hot AC chart, their 14th #1 which is the most by any act. The David Dobkin directed music video has garnered over 185 million views on Youtube; pushing their video catalog to 12 BILLION views across all official channels on YouTube.

Newly signed to Better Noise Music, they’ve garnered 22 top 10, hit singles over the last few years.

Today, Five Finger Death Punch also premiered the debut single from F8, “Inside Out” one of the most personal songs that the band has released to date. Watch the official lyric video HERE.

Fans who pre-order the album digitally will receive an instant download of “Inside Out” along with two other new tracks before the release on February 28th.

Says Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory, “We had an extremely successful, yet tumultuous couple of years as a band. We didn’t just weather the storm but came out on the other side better than ever. It was a focused sober group recording, our most important album to date and without a question it shows.”

“This album represents rebirth, progression, transcendence both personally and musically.” Vocalist Ivan Moody adds, “This record to me is ‘absolution’ – everything I’ve done in my life has led up to this moment.”

F8 was produced by Five Finger Death Punch with long time producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, Slash, etc). See the full tracklisting for F8 below.

SAN FRANCISCO – Faith No More return to the road next summer, announcing what will be the band’s first European performances in five years: Hellfest (June 20), Sunstroke (June 13) and Tons of Rock (June 26), with more European festival performances to be announced soon.

“Five years, four colonoscopies, two root canals and a handful of prostate exams tell us that it’s time to carpe diem our asses back to Europe asap,” said the band, collectively.

Faith No More last played in Europe in June of 2015, following the May 2015 release of Sol Invictus (Ipecac/Reclamation Recordings). The collection debuted atop the international sales charts: #2 in Australia, #4 in Germany, and #6 in both the U.S. and UK. Rolling Stone dubbed the 10-song album “triumphant,” the New Yorker called it “a reminder of everything that made Faith No More great in the first place,” and the Los Angeles Times said, Faith No More has a history of defying expectations, and that’s what it’s doing again with Sol Invictus.”

The San Francisco-born, platinum-selling band have released seven studio albums: We Care A Lot (1985), Introduce Yourself (1987), The Real Thing (1989), Angel Dust (1992), King For A Day… Fool For A Lifetime (1995), Album of the Year (1997) and Sol Invictus (2015).

Former bandmates Fred Mascherino and Eddie Reyes have reconnected and teamed up for their very own rendition of Emo Night. They’ll be taking their show on the road in January 2020 for a few dates that will include stops in Amityville (NY), Asbury Park (NJ), and Easton (PA). The festivities will include DJ sets, emo karaoke, and performances by The Color Fred and Fates Got A Driver.

“The Color Fred played an Emo Night that our friend Jon runs in Pennsylvania and we had a blast,” explains Mascherino. “He was spinning all of the bands that Eddie and I use to play with, so we thought it would be fun to do it in other places and have Eddie’s band help make it even more fun.”

The Color Fred is an indie rock band headed by former Taking Back Sunday guitarist/vocalist Fred Mascherino. Bend to Break, The Color Fred’s first full-length album, was released on October 30, 2007. The album hit #8 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. The band toured throughout North America and Europe, playing with bands such as Dashboard ConfessionalAngels and Airwaves, and Four Year Strong. They released an acoustic EP titled The Intervention for Record Store Day in 2009 and did a virtual solo acoustic tour in support of its release.

Mascherino then entered the studio to record LP2 and wound up collaborating with his friends Josh Eppard (Coheed and Cambria) and Andy Jackson (Hot Rod Circuit) in what eventually became Terrible Things. The trio signed to Universal Motown Records, released their popular self-titled full-length, then spent most of their time on the road supporting bands including The OffspringMinus the BearBaysideCirca Survive, and Streetlight Manifesto. Mascherino then went on tour playing bass in The Lemonheads and guitar for Say Anything. During that time, he was producing and co-writing with bands eventually building his own studio, Diver Down. In late 2018, Fred decided to close the studio to the public and start recording his own music again. Coming full-circle, the new material is being released as The Color Fred. The first song “Don’t Give Up on Me” was released this past May. More new material is underway in the studio and will be released in the near future.

Rivals brand new 2-song, 7″ EP Supernova was released today via Smartpunk Records HERE and is available on streaming services as well. Listen HERE. The title track has already received over 53k streams on Spotify alone. “We’ve really started to step up the creativity with sounds and environments,” describes Rivals vocalist Kalie Wolfe. “Building and creating a world around a theme and trying to show everyone what we see and feel. Between Supernova and “Thunderstorm“, we really stepped out of our comfort zone for this.”

“I’ve always wanted to write a song that was like ‘what’s up b@*%#*$, were back’ and that’s what ‘Thunderstorm‘ is,” explains Wolfe of their new single “Thunderstorm.” “For those who doubted us, said we wouldn’t last or said we couldn’t make it. For the doubt in our own hearts throughout the last two years and how we pulled our own ‘guns’ out to really pushed our way through all of that doubt. We became our own heros and I’m proud as hell of us for what we’ve accomplished in the past few years. ‘Thunderstorm‘ is our fight song.”
