tbs

If you can’t wait the full five days before ‘New Again’ is released to the world, then Taking Back Sunday have you covered. The Long Island quintet are streaming their fourth studio album in full on their Official Myspace Page, so get ahead of the curve and be one of the first tohave a listen.

In other news,TBS have also been added to the envious bill of bands set to support Blink 182 on their mammouth tour of the US this summer, full dates can be found HERE.

What are your thoughts on ‘New Again’, on first listen we’re definitely not disappointed, ‘Everything Must Go’ has been a stand out from the start and has single written all over it. It’s certainly a progression from ‘Louder Now’ and fans wanting the bands to go back to the sounds of album one and two will probably be disappointed, for the rest of the world it seems like TBS have given us another catchy as hell album with a few surprises.



You Me At Six Butcher Fall Out Boy Song


UK sickly-sweet popstars You Me At Six have attempted to cover Fall Out Boy’s hugely popular single ‘Sugar We’re Goin’ Down’ from 2005’s ‘From Under The Cork Tree’.

You can hear the god-awful b-side on their upcoming single ‘Finders Keepers’, or if you don’t want to waste your hard earned cash you can listen above. To be completely biased, it sounds like a disaster, but coming from someone who thinks the world’s obsession with the ‘band’ is a farce in itself they were never going to win us over. I think it’s his voice to be honest.

If anyone wants to protest and tell us what you see in them then feel free. What do you think of the cover? Good or shite?

Dancecore heroes Enter Shikari have released two remixes of their upcoming single Juggernauts, to publicise it’s 1st June release.

Frontman Rou Reynolds talks us through the remixes:

BLUE BEAR – TRUE TIGER REMIXhttp://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid17823878001?bctid=24014430001 

‘A Local label to us and good mates who we thought could give Juggers a tidy dubstep mix; and that’s exactly what they’ve done! They’ve kept the feel good vibe of the track which isn’t really heard much in the dubstep world but I think it really works and sounds gorgeous.’

 

NERO REMIX: http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid13590588001?bctid=24014432001

‘We’ve always really looked up to Nero as drum and bass producers, and felt they could do a great job with Juggers. He really accentuates the euphoria of the tune and rivals any big dance floor club banger with this!’

The St Albans boys’ new album Common Dreads is out on 15th June. An interview with the band will appear in the first issue of Fancore fanzine, which will be available on this site worldwide, and at various venues, record stockists and clubs across the UK.
