Rise Against are back and better than ever. The band have released the first single of their new album, Wolves out June 09. The single “The Violence,” feels like a nice return for the band.

You gotta admit it, hating on The Chainsmokers has become a trend people love.

In the video titled ‘How EVERY Chainsmokers Song is Written,’ Fassold demonstrates how the duo simply use three chords and lyrics containing generic problems every 20 year old has. Check it out..

Jack Antonoffs solo project Bleachers has returned with more 80’s syth pop goodness. This time Antonoff has teamed up with singer Lorde for the single “Don’t Take the Money.
Lorde and Antonoff are no strangers to collaborating together. Lorde’s comeback singles ‘Green Light’ and ‘Liability,’ from her upcoming sophomore album Melodrama, were both co-written with Antonoff.
Although Lorde’s voice is not predominately heard(her wispery voice is used as background vocals). “Don’t Take the Money” is sure to be a hit. After the success of Bleachers first hit ‘I Wanna Get Better,” Antonoff has throughly embraced the synth pop style and it definitely works for him. His voice has that vintage 80s vibe. Combined with his mellow yet upbeat music, Bleachers newest single is a must listen.
The single is part of Bleachers’ yet-to-be-titled sophomore album, the follow-up to breakthrough Strange Desire.
