Life After Death From Above 1979

Death From Above, the 2000s era punk rock band formerly known as Death From Above 1979, have rekindled their career with the release of their new album, Outrage! Is Now. The Toronto born Canadian rock duo, consisting of bassist Jesse K. Keeler and drummer vocalist Sebastien Grainger, have been credited as being one of the key groups who came out of the new-age rock movement surfacing in New York in the early 2000s. Advertisements

The Metal Maestro – An Interview With Juan Saurín

It’s getting dark, and his electric guitar pulsates through the walls of Concha Segura theater and onto the freezing November streets of Yecla, a town situated in the South-East of Spain. Juan Saurín, the name behind the strings, is a Yecla native, recognized and admired by his town. In the queue, his old High School teachers, family and friends blend in between teenagers decked head to toe in sleek, black leather. We catch a first glimpse of him, through the gap in the curtains behind the soundboards. He’s sound-checking; in a lunge, hair down, features brimmed with passion for the music he’s making.

CURRENT JOYS @ QUEEN BEES (W/ CELEBRITY CRUSH & LOS SHADOWS)

Back in September, our friend Zane threw an amazing concert at Queen Bees in North Park. The night showcased the talent of the groups: Los Shadows, Celebrity Crush, and Current Joys! We were fortunate enough to be invited to sell merch and cover the whole show. It was a time I will remember forever, filled with an extensive amount of dancing and new friends. I hope you all experience what I felt with this new video, filmed and edited by Sofie Cohen, an up-and-coming filmmaker from San Diego California. Keep reading to watch the video!

Cheers to a Good Tour – Sleeping with Sirens Experience

Sleeping with Sirens just finished their Up Close and Personal tour, which was exactly how it sounds. They booked smaller and more intimate venues with minimal lights and close to no big productions. The tour was one month long with 22 dates across the US, kicking off in San Francisco with Chase Atlantic, Palaye Royal, and The White Noise opening. This might be one of my favorite lineups ever. I followed the tour for a total of 5 dates, as well as the pop-up show at Chain Reaction the month previous and the acoustic set and signing at Fingerprints in Long Beach.
