With The Punches Cancel UK Tour

>> According to posts on the band's tumblr and facebook pages, With The Punches will no longer be touring the UK due to circumstances out of their control. You can view the statements below.
To anyone who hasn't heard, we unfortunately had to cancel our UK tour due to immigration not allowing us in the country. We are extremely sorry and apologize to everyone who was planning on coming out. No one is more bummed out on this than us. We love you all and deeply appreciate the continued support!

♥ With The Punches
--
Sunday night the five of us boarded a plane to the UK excited for our first international tour, playing slam dunk, and finally getting to meet all of the cool UK kids who we’ve talked to via the internet in the last few years. We got there, headed for customs, got pulled aside, detained for several hours then put back on a plane and sent back home to NY. Tour cancelled, hearts broken, and sleep patterns destroyed. I’m not bitching, just wanted everyone to know how much this sucks for us to not get to play these shows for you guys. We’ll be back, and we’ll actually make it out of the airport next time. Sorry.
>> Please support the band in any way that you can. Pick up a copy of their It's Not The End Of The World EP, or see them play when they come to a town near you. Their music deserves to be heard.

The Summer Set to Release New Album in July

>> The Summer Set have revealed the artwork for their upcoming album. Everything's Fine will be released on July 19th, 2011 through Razor & Tie. "Someone Like You," the first single from the new album, is available now on iTunes.
Guitarist John Gomez says, "The title is a bit sarcastic. Our first record was just one emotion. Everything's Fine is yin and yang. We've had some ups and downs recently, some break-ups, some general trials and tribulations. This is a record that says we're young, but growing up and experiencing new things. So in a way, it's optimistic, too."
(source: Alternative Press)
> You can see the artwork below, and click here to pre-order the album.



*UPDATE: 5/26/11
>> You can now pre-order the album through Glamour Kills! There are different packages available. You can order the album with a special TSS logo necklace, t-shirt, or both. Click here to see your options.

The Static Jacks Sign To Fearless Records

>> It's official - The Static Jacks have joined Fearless Records. A statement from the band regarding the signing and their upcoming debut album can be read below, or by clicking here.
Hello Family, Friends and Fans,
Today is a big day for us.
We are happy to officially announce that our debut album If You're Young will be coming out August 30, 2011. And with that news we can finally share that this will be our first non-independent release as we have joined the Fearless Records family!
If you follow our twitter or website, you know that over the past few months we have been hard at work, recording at Stratosphere Studios in New York with producer Chris Shaw (Weezer, Ted Leo, Public Enemy). This process is one we had been anxiously awaiting since first playing music together in high school. We could not be happier with the album that we created, and cannot wait to share it with you all. This is especially exciting since we'll be releasing If You’re Young through major distribution.
You might be asking yourself, “How do the Static Jacks fit into the Fearless Records family?” The short answer is that Fearless is a punk label that supports original bands (look no further than the early signing of At the Drive-In, or the recent addition of the Aquabats). Fearless cares very deeply about the importance of both touring and a band's exposure around the world. They've allowed us the freedom to continue our operation exactly how we always have. The only difference is that now we have their support to take our music worldwide. This band has not changed. Now you'll just be seeing our album in stores.
We'll have more information on If You're Young shortly…like artwork and track-listing. But for right now, we'll leave you with the track "Girl Parts." It's a duet that features Ceci Gomez (from our great friends Beast Make Bomb) on vocals. Check out the premiere on Filter.com.
Love,
Henry, Nick, Ian and Mike

Such Gold Announce Line-Up Change

>> Earlier today, Such Gold announced that there will be some changes in the band's line-up that will become permanent after their May tour with Living With Lions. You can view the full announcement below, or by clicking here.
Last week we announced that our good friend Skylar Sarkis will be filling in for Ben on vocals for our upcoming May dates with Living With Lions. This week we would like to announce that after our May tour, Skylar will permanently replace Tim Heald on guitar. Tim is leaving on good terms and he will be missed.
Although Skylar currently lives and attends school in Boston, he is an old friend of ours from home, and was the first person we considered contacting when it was time to find a replacement. He is a talented guitar player, a dedicated band-mate, and we’re confident that he’ll be a great addition to Such Gold. We look forward to touring and writing our full-length with him this Spring.
With Tim gone and Skylar on vocal duty, our good friend Kevin Mahoney from Hit The Lights will be filling in on guitar for a few of our May dates. Thanks for the continued support – see you on the road!

Album Review: "Worst Thing I've Been Cursed With" by Sparks The Rescue

>> Sparks The Rescue will be releasing their new album, Worst Thing I've Been Cursed With, on May 10, 2011 through Fearless Records. The band has combined styles used on past songs as well as new inspiration for this album. Long-time fans of the band will be glad to hear another fantastic album, and new fans will have something to get hooked on.
For fans of: All Time Low, You Me and Everyone We Know

>> Sparks has mastered the art of making songs whose meanings don't always match their sounds. The album starts out with "Saturday Skin," a song that sounds like a standard upbeat pop rock song. If you listen closely, you'll realize this is not the case. It's about having a 'good time', making mistakes, and regretting the whole thing once it's over. It transitions nicely into "She's A Bitch, and I'm A Fool," which you can listen to here. This one has more of a rock vibe, full of guitar riffs and harmonies. It addresses that terrible feeling one gets upon realizing their relationship meant more to them than it did to their significant other, something many people can relate to. The lyrics match the sound for "The Weirdest Way," which can be heard here. This song describes the aftermath of a relationship's end, and the feeling when the other person is the first to move on. It's less energetic than the previous songs, but it has just as much emotion in every line. "He puts his hands on you the way that I used to. Does it feel the same, just a different name? .... You flipped my world upside down. Has he turned your heart around?" Just by listening to the first three tracks, it becomes clear that this album tells a story.

>> A strong rock song with a dark side, "High and Hazy" reflects the disillusionment and desperation felt by the character of this story. Referencing addiction, lies, and inner demons, this song really shows the intensity of this situation. The title track of the album "Worst Thing I've been Cursed With" is the climax of the emotions that have been building up from track one. You can hear the anguish in the guitars, the hopelessness in the chorus, and the passion all throughout. By this point in the story, these emotions have completely overtaken the character, who readily admits it. "It feels like a heart attack when you go. Loving you is the worst thing I've been cursed with, taking over my head and my verses oh."

>> With lyrics reminiscent of "Riot Girl" by Good Charlotte, "Better Side Of Me" is a fun yet contradictory song. The "little girl" mentioned is described as a terrible influence, but is referred to as the "better side of me." Featuring guest vocals from Spose, this is a song that can easily get stuck in your head for days. "Postcard Of A Tidal Wave" has a lighter pop sound to it while still maintaining that 'rough around the edges' feel.

>> "Vanities" takes the tempo down a few pegs while sweetly reflecting on how complicated things have become in this story. "Holiday" is bright and spirited with a sense of hope. It's a positive song, which contrasts sharply with "60 Minutes of Fame." The character puts it all on the line in this song, simply hoping "for one hour or two, no strings attached."

>> "How To Make A Heart Hollow" is by far the most somber and emotional song on the album. It features guest vocals from Jessica Leplon (Tragic Hero/LAB Records), whose harmonies really make this track stand out. The back and forth between Leplon and Sparks vocalist Alex Roy at the end is hauntingly beautiful; it's almost as if this character is finally confronting that which has plagued him. "Thought You Were The One" brings this story, and the album itself to an end. Undoubtedly referencing 2009's "Swear That She's The One", this one song brings everything full-circle. The tone and tempo flow nicely from the preceding track, but also make for a smooth transition to the first track as well for those who want to listen to this album on repeat.

>> Full of ups and downs, cutting lyrics and catchy songs, Worst Thing I've Been Cursed With is sure to be a crowd-pleaser without trying to be. Sparks The Rescue successfully turned this album into a story where every song is a new chapter. Whether you listen to the album as a whole or a couple of tracks individually, each song is certainly worth hearing.

>> You can pre-order one of the many bundles offered for the album here through MerchNow and SmartPunk.
