New Project..AP Reccomends?

Why hey there lovelies.

So if you know me well, you know my guilty addiction to AP Magazine. Maybe it's that I've interviewed a lot of bands that grace its' pages or just my love for finding new music but it's brought something new to my attention. I've missed posting interviews on here since all of the in persons, phoners I do now are requested for that website so I'm going to start a new exciting little project here!
Every month, I'm going to make it a goal to interview the bands that grace the AP Reccomends section every month and lucky for me, one of the bands highlighted this month I just interviewed! I miss being able to fill interviews with pictures, videos, etcetera so here is my chance to do so :)
Look for the interview with STAY today or tomorrow and if you're a local band or just a band who wants a little interview love let me know! :)

New video from Hey Monday! "I Don't Wanna Dance"

Hey lovelies! So I know recently there have been a lot of music videos being posted lately but I see that as a good thing. It's a sign that we're bringing you the bands that are happening right now. New videos, new tours, new records and one that has really been doing everything this year is Hey Monday who just put out the brand new video for "I Don't Wanna Dance" which you can find here.
It's the first single of the new EP "Beneath it All" which hits shelves in August and is a fun little performance/not so much a love story video. Recently I got the chance to sit down for my second interview with the band at Warped tour and that will be going up very soon at and maybe i'll post it here as well for you folks! Just let me know!

Want to help reveal the AP Bands for this fall's tour?

From the bands announced so far in Emarosa, Polar Bear Club and This Is Hell, the AP Fall Ball is sure to be a hard hitting rock show with no allowance for anything else. Maybe they're will be a shocker with a pop rock group but we need you to know that. I work for the AP Street Team as well and currently if you go to http://www. you can help to reveal the rest of the bands. It's at almost 2.5 thousand now and at 3,000 they'll be announcing the last two bands!

How times have changed.

Flash back to The Summer Set approximately 2007. A song they still play to this day! I just found this gem when I was doing a little research for my coverage of the Rock Yourself To Sleep Tour this Saturday night and found a video from a band I just interviewed on Sunday. Brian took the hard questions and has been rocking the tour all summer.

Check it out! Three years ago...

Today. Same band, no line up changes..

New VersaEmerge Video: "Fixed At Zero"

This lady just finished her Warped dates for the year and one of the bands I got to follow up with from our last interview in November was Versa Emerge. Only releasing their debut album after fans waited patiently for about two years just a month ago, they were a hot ticket and put an amazing show. We talked about the record and their live show and you can get a taste of it it in this amazing video they just put out for the title track. Their energy when playing their music is contagious and I'm sure you'll agree after watching the video!

Weezer's putting out a new record? What's new!

Did I miss something or did Weezer JUST put out a new record last year? Were they unhappy with it? Did the accident with River Cuomos and his family scare them? Whatever it was, it allows us to enjoy some new music so soon after the release last year. The new record will be dropping on September 13th!

Keep Matthew Leone in your hearts.

Last night, something terrible happened. I can't even believe it to be real right now. Last year at Warped in Montreal, I met an amazing person. Quite possibly one of the happiest just to be alive people I've ever met in Matthew Leone from Madina Lake. Unfortunately due to some crazy weather, we couldn't do our interview but I did catch the band live that night and he kept encouraging me to come closer and really get into it.
I caught him next while the band was opening for Silverstein and he remembered me from Warped Tour with a huge grin on his face despite having to cancel on the interview. I then found out that him and his brother Nathan Leone, his rock, were on Fear Factor Twin edition so of course I watched to find out they won. Matthew was always there for his brother and would step up to the plate if Nathan couldn't take it anymore.
Last night, Matthew stepped up and tried to save a woman who was being beaten horribly by her significant other. When Matthew got in between the middle of them and proceeded to call the cops the man jumped Matthew from behind and beat him till he was unconcious and left the scene. When Matthew was found, he was brought immediately to the hospital where he had to have a third of his skull removed and currently they are waiting for the swelling to go down in his brain. Please pray for this amazing soul, Nathan and their loved ones. Matthew has had a life filled with tragedy and still has had hope and happiness through it all. Keep them in your prayers please.
