NO DEVOTION RELEASE NEW ALBUM, ‘NO OBLIVION’

No Devotion––the trio made up of vocalist Geoff Rickly (of Thursday), bassist/producer Stuart Richardson, and guitarist Lee Gaze––are proof that lightning can, in fact, strike twice.

Today, after seven years since their Kerrang Album Of The Year-winning debut comes No Oblivion, the band’s long-awaited new album and personal experiment gone public. Recorded and produced/mixed by Richardson, the album follows a string of extremely unfortunate events after the release of 2015’s Permanence.

Together, the members reimagined the project as a private vault where they could store some of their most personal experiences and sounds. That is… until now. What they’ve spent years creating solely for one another and the joy of the process is now No Oblivion, and the resulting record is a blinding feat––its songs are deeply-rich in texture, innovative […]

YOUNG CULTURE RELEASE SINGLE & ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM, ‘YOU HAD TO BE THERE’

Equal Vision Records and New York-based pop-punk trio Young Culture are excited to announce the Friday, November 11 release of You Had To Be There, the band’s forthcoming full-length album. Recorded with Anton DeLost (State Champs, Silverstein, Mayday Parade) in Toronto, ON, it feels like the trio — vocalist Alex Magnan and guitarists Gabe Pietrafesa and Troy Burchett — are coming down from the lovestruck high of a year ago marked by the band’s Godspeed EP. Although similarly dramatic with catchy surges of unabashed emotion, You Had To Be There features a melancholy rush of high-octane energy with shadows that lurk within the foundations of these 10 songs. 

Stream the album’s new single, “Kinda Over It,” a song about the shadiness, the back-and-forth and unnecessary headaches of a relationship that’s not quite a relationship, on YouTube HERE and on all platforms HERE. The […]

ARMOR FOR SLEEP RELEASE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM, ‘THE RAIN MUSEUM’

It’s been 15 years since the last record from Armor For Sleep, but the band has remained a staple of many of their fans’ daily listening routine. Today, the seminal post-hardcore act made their highly-anticipated return with The Rain Museum, a 12 song collection that is equal part beautiful and devastating. The Rain Museum is an album that was initially intended to be a straight-up concept album based off of a short story penned by frontman Ben Jorgensen. The concept was built around a post-apocalyptic world where weather no longer exists on planet earth and people come to a mysterious museum in the middle of the desert to look back on what life used to be like. Originally planned as […]

CHERIE AMOUR RELEASE NEW SINGLE & ANNOUNCE DEBUT RECORD, ‘SPIRITUAL ASCENSION’

Baltimore-based quartet Cherie Amour released their new single and video “Letting Go”, which will appear on their new album Spiritual Ascension due out November 4th on Equal Vision Records. You can pre-order and pre-save the album here.

“Letting Go” is Cherie Amour’s third single of the year and serves as an impressive statement on the groups self described “nu-punk” sound, expertly combining elements of pop-punk, post-hardcore, RnB, hip hop and metal. Produced by Alan Day (Four Year Strong), the track is a tour de force of hard hitting production with a radio friendly veneer. Not content to rest on their alternative laurels, the band mixes in an undercurrent of  mainstream hip-hop and pop swagger that elevates the track into unique sonic territory. While “Letting Go” will appeal to a wide range of music lovers, it is anything but formulaic – instead, it serves […]

Equal Vision Records and New York-based pop-punk trio Young Culture are excited to present “Good Karma,” a song co-written by Paul Marc Rousseau from Silverstein and the band’s second offering of 2022 that follows the upbeat and punchy “Tattoo.” “Good Karma,” whose melancholy rush of high-octane energy, looks forward to the future with an extra burst of confidence. “This song is a love letter to New York City,” Alex Magnan of Young Culture explains. “A place where everyone can go to be someone and no one, about investing who you are in a place and sometimes getting nothing in return.” Stream “Good Karma” on YouTube HERE and on all platforms HERE.

Young Culture have also announced its co-headline tour […]

ARMOR FOR SLEEP RELEASE NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO, “WHATEVER, WHO CARES”

Armor For Sleep delighted fans with “How Far Apart” – their first new single in 15 years. Today, Armor For Sleep returned with “Whatever, Who Cares”, further signaling that their upcoming album The Rain Museum (Out September 9th on Equal Vision Records) will combine the sound that fans first fell in love with and new compositional twists born of almost two decades of Jorgensen refining his craft. For the official “Whatever, Who Cares” video, the band once again linked up with director Jesse Korman (Hot Water Music, The Juliana Theory) to create a visual accompaniment that perfectly matches the emotionally charged, ‘edge-of-your-seat’ energy of the track.

Jorgensen explains the meaning behind the song and video is the quote below: 

“Whatever, Who Cares” […]

ANBERLIN RELEASE NEW EP, ‘SILVERLINE’

Alternative rock quintet Anberlin have released their new EP, Silverline, out today on Equal Vision Records. The EP marks the bands first new collection of songs in eight years and showcases their expansive sound, ranging from full on rock anthems, to lighter post-rock inspired tracks. Entering Feral Sound Studios in Tampa, FL, the band self-produced the EP alongside help from friends Tim McTague (of Underoath), Chad Carouthers, and JJ Revell. To celebrate the release, the band has shared a video for “Two Graves”, taking an artistic approach to the band reigniting on the same path again.

Writing and recording Silverline was a very collaborative and do-it-yourself experience for Anberlin. The five songs on the EP showcase the band’s penchant for creating […]

YOUNG CULTURE RELEASE NEW SINGLE, “TATTOO”

Equal Vision Records and New York-based pop-punk trio Young Culture are excited to present “Tattoo,” a dramatic and catchy surge of unabashed emotion with shadows lurking within its foundations that was recorded with Anton DeLost (State Champs, Silverstein, Mayday Parade) at his studio in Toronto. 

‘Never thought it would hurt forever when I asked you for your name,’ sings vocalist Alex Magnan over a chugging guitar-line that soon travels into the past, pitting the optimism of back then against the reality of a relationship gone wrong. The distance between those two things is played out over an infectiously catchy pop-punk tune that is nevertheless carried by a sense of hope. Stream “Tattoo” on YouTube HERE and all platforms HERE.
