What can we say about this song…other than the fact that we’ve had it on repeat for the last week! Check out the quirky video for Skinny Lister’s latest single, “What Can I Say” taken from their album, Down on Deptford Broadway. The album is out now on Xtra Mile Recordings.
If you live in the UK the band is currently out on tour supporting the new album and you can get tickets over on the band’s website.
New Hampshire native Franz Nicolay is back with a new album and a full band headlining tour to celebrate it. This week’s song of the week is taken from his latest album To Us, The Beautiful which came out just last week.
Be sure to catch Franz out on tour the next few months supporting the album’s release. The February dates are for the US shows but if you scroll down just a little farther, British followers, you’ll see some tour dates with your name on them in March!
It’s probably no surprise to any of our followers that The Box Tiger have quickly become one of our favorite up and coming local bands this year. Their debut album was released on August 6th, 2013 and the band is already working on their follow up album. To tide us over they’ve released a new single “Fire Walk With Me” and announced a small December tour to promote it. You can check out the single below, as well as find a list of tour dates. If you haven’t already started listening to this band yet, what are you waiting for?
A full-album show is always a special event. A full-album anniversary show is even more exciting. However, take 2 classic albums celebrating anniversaries in 2014, put those bands on a tour together, and add the well-liked Reggie and the Full Effect performing an album all the way through, and you have the makings of a tour for the ages. Say Anything finally spilled the beans on their upcoming fall tour, which has the band playing their classic sophomore album …Is a Real Boy front-to-back for the 10-year anniversary, along with some of their other hits. They are bringing along Saves the Day, who will be celebrating the 15-year anniversary of their pop punk/emo classic Through Being Cool for the occasion. Opening up will be Reggie and the Full Effect (fronted by former Get Up Kids keyboardist James Dewees) performing Under the Tray… in its entirety. The tour begins at the House of Blues on San Diego on November 14 and wraps up at the House of Blues in Anaheim on December 21. This is a tour you will not want to miss; presale tickets are available now with tickets going on sale on Wednesday, September 10.

Michigan-based punk band The Swellers have released the dates for their “Call It a Night” tour, following the announcement earlier this year that they would be “retiring”. Unlike most hiatus announcements, this news came with more of a feeling of finality, as the band announced via twitter on July 28 “we’re just… retiring. We are just done, and it was good”. The Swellers stated that these will be the last shows they play in these cities, which so far includes Buffalo, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland and Detroit. Check out the band’s music video for “The Best I Ever Had” and kick your week off right with this anthemic, nostalgic look back at the happiest memories the band’s lyricist has experienced.
