Michigan-based Stepdad have just released a poppy new EP entitled Strange Tonight. This catchy as hell four-track EP also packs a punch, in true Stepdad form. An underground fan favorite since 2009, the band has toured with the likes of Fitz & The Tantrums, Reptar, Passion Pit, and are vets of the Vans Warped Tour. They also make frankly delightful videos. Check out the EP below and let us know your thoughts. (more…)
What better way to start the new year than with the promise of new headlining tour dates? Saves The Day have revealed that following their UK tour with Brand New, they’ll be hitting the road for another run of European shows. This time, the band will stop in Germany and Italy for seven concerts, with more to be announced. Check out the routing below.
Earlier this year, singer-songwriter Brian Marquis, former guitarist and vocalist for Therefore I Am, came up with a plan for an acoustic stage at the 2012 Vans Warped Tour. With the approval of the tour’s founder and manager Kevin Lyman, Marquis went on to produce, manage, and perform on the stage all summer. He called it the Acoustic Basement, and despite being thrown into a loud boisterous punk rock festival, the stage was a huge success, attracting more and more fans and artists every day.
Now, before returning to next year’s Warped Tour, the Acoustic Basement will be taking flight on it’s own tour in February 2013. Artists performing on the tour will include Brian Marquis, Koji, A Loss For Words, Geoff Rickly (Thursday), and Vinnie Caruana (I Am The Avalanche).
More info and dates soon to follow.
