Fearless Records Announces 'Punk Goes 90s' Volume 2 Track List

Fearless RecordsThe hugely popular Fearless Records compilation is back. Last month the label teased fans with the news of a second volume of Punk Goes 90s, and today we finally have all the details. The track list will include songs by classic ’90s bands such as Foo Fighters, Smash Mouth, and Green Day, being covered by acts like Yellowcard, Memphis May Fire, Falling In Reverse, and Mayday Parade.

We’re a little wary of the idea of Yellowcard covering The Smashing Pumpkins or Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! taking on Smash Mouth’s “All Star,” but hope we’re proven wrong. You can check it out yourself when the album drops on April 1st, and view the full track list and Get Scared‘s cover of “My Own Worst Enemy” below. (more…)

Green Day Premiere ¡Cuatro! Trailer

Though we got a sneak peak at the film back in November, the band has now released a full-blown trailer for your enjoyment. The trailer sees a fast-paced intro with a flash of lyrics, the smashing of guitars, fervorous drumming, and plenty of rock.

You can view the trailer right here, and then start brainstorming, because right after the screening the band will be taking fan questions.

Multi-Part Album Releases: A New Trend?

These days, there is often debate over the value of an entire album. With all the illegal downloading of MP3s and the seemingly constant decrease in attention spans, some argue that the full-length album is becoming less and less substantial as a marketable product, while EPs and singles are increasing in value.

To combat this shift, many artists are taking the LP to new heights, giving it more value as a complete overall package and work of art. We’ve seen an increase in vinyl production, unique packaging, limited edition pre-orders, you name it. Now there seems to be another trend emerging: the sequential release of multi-part LPs. (more…)
