Let's Get Festive!

>> It's that time of year again, folks! While it doesn't exactly feel like Christmas time here in New York, we're only a few days out from the big holiday. In anticipation for the annual season of cheer, several artists have taken it upon themselves to release songs to fit the feeling of December. This is only a handful of the stellar holiday songs out there, so be sure to check these out and share your favorites - old and new!


>> Night Argent - "Cold (Carol of the Bells)"

A Message from Night Argent:
"We wanted to do something special as a thank you to all of you for such an amazing year! We've recorded our own unique take on one of the holiday classics. It's so easy to get wrapped up and swept away in the excitement of the holidays that we sometimes forget that winter is one of the most difficult and dangerous times for those of us without food, shelter, and warmth. You can help raise awareness and #FightTheCold by joining us in donating clothes, time, and/or your talents to your local homeless shelters and missions. Thank you for all of your love and support, we can't wait to see what the next year has in store!"

>> The Drama State - "It's Starting To Hurt A Lot Like Christmas"

A Message from The Drama State:
"I wrote this song around the time I spent my first Christmas alone out of a long-term relationship. I’ve never been a fan of Christmas or the holiday season in general. Winters in Indiana are usually pretty bad, so not only was it cold outside but it seemed like my whole life was infused with this stale, frigid kind of feeling. So I wrote this song in an attempt to release some of that." - Vocalist Ryan Diskey

>> Stellar Young - "No Presents But Your Presence"


>> The Holidaze (Members of All Time Low, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, 5 Seconds of Summer, Goldfinger) - "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"

A Message from Alex Gaskarth:
Hello my loves! Around this time last year, me and some good friends thought it'd be fun to record a holiday jam for the world to hear. We lit a fire, made hot chocolate, and put our musical spin on a holiday classic, with producer genius, John Feldmann at the helm! We all knew we wanted to do something special with it to help people, so we decided to wait until this year to give everyone a listen! We've been working with Ryan Seacrest Foundation to raise money for an amazing cause, so we ask that in return for this track, you donate whatever you can spare to the foundation. Please follow the links and give whatever you can!

Big thanks to Ashton (5 Seconds of Summer), Joel (Good Charlotte), Pierre (Simple Plan), and John (Goldfinger) for collaborating on this with me! Holiday super groups are the best kind!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and thanks for listening! Hope you enjoy!

>> Sheppard - "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" Cover

>> Fable Cry - "Kidnap The Sandy Claws"

>> Enjoy these tunes and of course, let us know which are your holiday favorites! Happy Holidays, everyone. Thanks for another year of amazing support. Cheers to 2016! xoxo, Kate
