INTERVIEW: 7 Minute Martians Reflect on the Long Journey to Their Debut Full-Length, "Curious"

Cincinnati pop-punk band, 7 Minute Martians might be getting ready to release their debut full-length, Curious this month, but that doesn't mean that they're new to the game by any means. In fact, Curious has been a long time in the making - nearly seven years, to be exact! First inspired by artists like blink-182, New Found Glory and Sum-41, the band's timeless sound will make you long for the 90's and early 2000's, when pop-punk was in its prime. 

Get to Know Your New Favorite Band, The Faim: "We Want to Leave a Mark on Anyone Who Watches Us Play for the First Time"

Last month, Perth Australia four-piece, The Faim exploded into the scene with their massive debut single, "Saints Of The Sinners." Produced by the iconic John Feldmann and co-written with Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, the dynamic track marks one hell of a entrance for the band, who will be hitting the road in the UK with Lower Than Atlantis, followed by a stint across Australia and New Zealand with Sleeping With Sirens. With their massive and unique sound, The Faim are a band you're going to want to know before they inevitably blow up (more than they already have).

INTERVIEW: Sub-Radio Dive Headfirst Into 2018 With New Music and Big Plans for the Future

Still riding the high from their immensely successful 2017, pop-rock sextet Sub-Radio are showing no signs of slowing down this year. With their EP, Headfirst out on April 18th two new singles, "What Are We" and "Flashback" out now and shows planned throughout the entire summer, 2018 promises to be yet another massive year for Sub-Radio, and it's the band's excitement for all things to come that makes them so inviting and fun to listen to. 

Vinyl Theatre Find Creative Freedom With New Material: "We're Just Being Ourselves and Loving Music Again"

Easily one of the best things about being an artist is being able to look back on your past work and see how much you've grown. This year, there's no denying that Vinyl Theatre will be able to do just that. Early this month, the band returned with "Feel It All," their first song since the release of their full-length, Origami last year, and within just one listen, it's obvious how much they've grown and evolved between releases.

INTERVIEW: Thirdstory Have Found Themselves on Their Debut Full-Length Album, "Cold Heart"

2017 was a massive year for NYC pop/soul group, Thirdstory, who spent much of the year on the road with Chance The Rapper, performed at Governor's Ball in their home state and found massive success with the release of their 3-song EP, Searching, but they're only getting started. On March 9th, the trio, comprised of Elliott Skinner, Richard Saunders, and Ben Lusher will release their debut full-length album, Cold Heart, a stunning blend of each artists' influences that explores the wide range of human emotions.

Matt Clarke on Milestones' Debut Album, "Red Lights": "It’s About Perseverance, Attitude and Resilience"

If Red Lights is the pushing off point for Milestones, then it's safe to say that 2018 is going to be this UK pop-punk quartet's year. Filled to the brim with catchy hooks, memorable choruses and vulnerable lyricism, Red Lights is everything you'd want from from a debut full-length release and more. What promises to be the band's biggest chapter yet didn't come without a few struggles, though. In fact, that's exactly what Red Lights is all about: pushing past life's obstacles and the "red lights" that people put in front of you. 

Harker Discuss Their Growth on Their Debut Full-Length: "It Was a Long, Tough Journey, but so Worth It Once It Was Released"

Brighton indie-punks Harker aren't the same band that they were when they formed in 2014. Long gone is the acoustic solo project and in its place are the fuzzy guitars and loud, energetic choruses that make up their debut full-length album, No Discordance. It has been a long, exhausting journey for the quartet to get to where they are now, but for Harker, it was all worth it the second No Discordance dropped. 

Moorea Masa Opens Up About Her New Album: "I Took a Light and Shined It Into All the Darkness and Beauty That I May Have Been Too Scared to Look At"

Music is second nature to Portland native Moorea Masa, who has been singing for as long as she can remember. As she has grown as a person, from singing in church as a child, to sneaking into concerts at 16 and eventually releasing her debut EP as Moorea Masa & the Mood, her music has evolved as well. Now, Moorea is gearing up to release her new full-length album, teasing listeners with her stunning new single, "I Can't Tell."

INTERVIEW: The Unlikely Candidates Reflect on 2017 and Discuss New Single, "Oh My Dear Lord"

After releasing two EPs and playing countless shows and festivals in 2017, one would think that The Unlikely Candidates would want to take some time off to recharge and reflect on an insanely busy year, but the band is showing no signs of slowing down in 2018. With their new single, "Oh My Dear Lord" out now, the band is already itching to start writing again, this time setting their sights on a full-length record, but that's not all they want to accomplish this year.

Q&A with Jenny March: "Music Has Always Been My Biggest Passion"

Ohio-born and Los Angeles-based songstress Jenny March is poised to break out this year with her new EP, but until then, she's holding fans over with her debut single, "California Daze." Having done a little bit of everything, from dancing and acting to her current passion, singing, she puts her heart and soul into everything she touches, which promises one hell of a debut EP. 

Jonathan Farrar and Tony Zichella Get a Fresh Start in New Project, Capital North: "It’s Not Something That You Just Decide You’re Done With"

When you're involved in music, and really in it for the right reasons, it's not something that you can just walk away from. Former Lights in the Sky members Jonathan Farrar and Anthony Zichella learned this rather quickly after stepping away from music before eventually reuniting to form their new project, Capital North. The result of both members' mental and physical journeys - Farrar traveled the world for a year on a mission of soul searching while Zichella went on to graduate culinary school and pursue his passion as a chef - is the band's incredibly honest debut EP, Sea To Sky.

INTERVIEW: The Brinks Talk About Their Evolving Sound on "EP2"

The great thing about being involved with music is that it constantly pushes and challenges you to be better and step outside of your comfort zone, and that's exactly what The Brinks have been able to accomplish with their newest release, EP2. Arriving two years after the release of their debut EP, Temporary LoveEP2 served as the perfect closer for 2017 and found the duo, comprised of producer Matt Friedman and Australian singer Scott Mellis, exploring their sound more than ever before.

Unconventional, Exciting and Loud: Denver’s CITRA Discuss Their New EP, “Mr. Copacetic”

Navigating the music industry as a growing band in 2018 isn’t the same as it was in 2005, 2010 or (if we’re being honest) even 2016. In a world where attention spans are getting shorter and first impressions matter more than ever, artists are must do whatever it takes to stand out from the crowd, but thankfully, Denver four-piece CITRA have already done that. Maybe it’s their explosive sound that’ll first hook you, or it could be their high energy and vibrant live performance that’ll grab your attention. Whatever it is, they’re doing something right.

Q&A with Maggie Schneider: "Negativity and Hatred Will Never Be as Effective as Optimism and Love"

Bright eyed and bubbly, Maggie Schneider broke into 2018 with her uplifting and positive new EP, Tinted Glasses, and the message of her new release is something we could all use a refresher on - looking on the bright side of life. Schneider isn't necessarily ignoring life's daily struggles or difficulties, but rather choosing to look past them, find a solution and keep her head up. Take her powerful single, "Chuck Bass," for instance. The track not only encourages to women to stand up for what’s right, but also support one another during tough times. 

Q&A with His Dream Of Lions: "We’d Really like to Turn Pop Rock on Its Head in 2018"

With each new album comes reinvention, and His Dream Of Lions have taken full advantage of that on their newest release, Pseudo Star. Out February 16th, the new EP finds the Virginia pop rock band experimenting with their sound more than ever, broadening their range with classic influences peppered with orchestral and electronic elements. But the band hasn't only grown sonically - this time around, His Dream Of Lions are more self aware and transparent than ever.
