Matchbox 20 announce Co-Headlining Tour With Goo Goo Dolls

This may very well be the biggest tour announcement we make all month, and I’m sure it will make #FreeTicketFriday crazier than it has been in recent weeks. For the first time ever, Matchbox 20 and Goo Goo Dolls will be embarking on a nationwide co-headlining tour.

You read that above paragraph right and no, it’s not 2002. Matchbox 20 have revealed they will be joined by Goo Goo Dolls as they watch the United States pass outside their busses on a Summer headlining run that is sure to go down in the history books. Both bands will be playing gigantic, hit-filled sets, and we encourage everyone within four hours of any venue to attend. You can view the full routing at the end of this post.

Bands rarely tour for the sake of touring, especially once they reach the level of popularity these bands have, and this tour will be no different. Goo Goo Dolls will be promoting their upcoming tenth album, Magnetic, which will drop on May, while Matchbox will be hoping the Summer fun helps push sales of their September 4, 2012 release, North.

Tickets go on sale this Saturday, March 23. (more…)

Warped Tour Searching for 2013 Artwork

We can never get enough Warped Tour news, and even in the fall and winter months when we’re pulling out the blankets and putting on the heat, Warped Tour is still hot on our minds.

That’s why we couldn’t resist sharing Warped Tour’s latest news with you. The tour is currently searching for artwork based on the theme Best Day Ever and must include the 2013 Vans Warped Tour logo.

So whip out those old school colored pencils and pastels and get to work! If you’re in need of some inspiration, check our more details and last year’s winning design here.

SoundTrax: Beachside Bonfires

In the age of the playlist, everyone has access to collections of songs hacked together due to arbitrary similarities. But what does that accomplish other than aid our forever shortening attention span, while making the idea of an album obsolete? SoundTrax is here to provide you with playlists that are more thought out, but still provide you with that instant gratification.

This week we’ve put together a soundtrack that will let you escape your daily grind, dig your toes into the sand, crack open a Corona, chat with friends and smell like a chimney for the next three days. Catchy choruses, funky rhythm sections and campy lyrics hightlight this playlist, so sit back and enjoy.

SoundTrax: Beachside Bonfires from OurStage on 8tracks.

OurStage band Bronze Radio Return kicks things off with their feel-good vibe, and when the whole band starts singing together during the hook you won’t be able to resist. Dispatch picks up where Bronze Radio Return leaves off and pushes the tempo just a bit, before The Kooks rattle our nerves with an infectious hook and incredible arrangement. Mumford & Sons are the epitome of campy, sing-a-long rock-n-roll, so how could we not include them in the power slot of this soundtrack? Get Back Loretta and Ivory Drive have totally different styles, but both manage to infuse a sense of funk and a breath of life into the second half of this playlist, sandwiching indie-dance-rockers Foster the People. Finally, Dave Matthews Band closes us out with a summer classic from ’96.

Download July Editor Picks For Free On Facebook

Despite what Florence and The Machine may say, the dog days aren’t over just yet.  In fact, they’re just beginning.  With the summer heat coming on in full force, it’s the perfect time for a new selection of July Editor Picks.  Roll down the windows and turn up this summery mix of indie pop, hard rock, hip hop and country.  Or, if you’re hiding inside and blasting the AC, put on some of the more chill, contemplative tracks.  Get over to the OurStage Facebook page to snag the mix for free download, or listen to it on 8tracks along with the past Editor Picks playlists.

Weapons of Audio “If You Want Me” – Big crunchy guitars and high falsetto vocals.  Imagine Bon Iver fronting Motley Crüe with a hell of a lot more sex appeal.

Sidney York “Dick & Jane” – Is it possible to create a perfect indie pop song without whistling, ukelele and lyrics about bicycling around town?  Not likely.

Chuck Elmore “Saying I Love You” – Elmore’s smooth vocals and slide guitar mix together the best parts of country, folk and pop.

David Costa “To Die For” – Building to a killer hook in the chorus (pun intended), this hip hop cut balances melody with angry, lovesick rhymes.

Jesse Thomas “You I Want” – Clear some nice, comfortable space in your head, because the chorus of “You I Want” is going to spend a lot of time in there.

Clarensau “I Would Trade (Grandpa’s Song)” – Tight male-female harmonies and a haunting cello line combine on this solemnly beautiful track.

Boys “Gossip” – A rollicking sonic romp complete with crunching guitars, vocal acrobatics and a spot-on use of snapping percussion.

Joanna Erdos & The Midnight Show “Sexy Secrets” – If Regina Spektor and Amanda Palmer had a kid (I’ll leave the “how” out of this) it would undoubtedly be Joanna Erdos.
