Poppy’s Veeps livestream is a must-see
If you haven’t seen Poppy on her Never Find My Place tour, now’s your chance. Veeps is bringing the artist into your home May 26 with a one-night-only livestream recorded at San Diego’s House Of Blues. Score your tickets here.
Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden members form spectacular supergroup
Nirvana, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam all ruled the ’90s. What if we told you some of its members formed their own project? Then dropped an album, too. Bet we have your attention now. 3rd Secret is the product of Krist Novoselic, Matt Cameron and Kim Thayil, plus Bubba Dupree, Jillian Raye and Jennifer Johnson. Check out their self-titled debut record now.
The Interrupters return
The Interrupters have been keeping busy. Prior to supporting Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy on the Hella Mega tour last year, the band built their own home studio and created an album during the COVID lockdowns. Now, they’ll see the fruits of their labor when new album In The Wild comes out this August. Here’s hoping they preview the new material when they kick off a tour with Flogging Molly in June. You can get tickets here.
Motionless In White are a “Masterpiece”
Motionless In White are back with another new single. Ahead of new album Scoring The End Of The World, Motionless In White dropped “Masterpiece.” It’s a song that embodies the band’s ability to be both tender and frank — and a reminder that we’re never alone. Watch Motionless In White play the song from an abandoned home here, and remember to preorder/presave the new record, which arrives in June.
The world of 100 gecs is nothing but vibrant
100 gecs are a lovably bizarre sensation. In new single “Doritos & Fritos,” the duo of Laura Les and Dylan Brady imagine one wacky scenario after the next (see: eating burritos with Danny DeVito). Sonically, the pair lean into ’90s alt-rock influences, a pivot that’s perfectly suited for AP readers. Listen to the track now in preparation for their sophomore album, 10000 gecs.
State Champs are the Kings Of The New Age
With a new wave of artists pushing pop punk forward, the genre is beaming, and it feels like everyone wants to join in on the fun. On new album Kings Of The New Age, State Champs show us how it’s done. Turn up new single “Eventually” and make sure to secure your copy of the new LP here.
Magnolia Park visit “Tokyo”
Magnolia Park are always full of surprises. This time, they’ve reimagined Tokyo as a dystopian vista on a new single that shares a title with the bustling city. The band teamed up with Christo Bowman of Bad Suns on the new track, which you can listen to here. Additionally, Magnolia Park are kicking off a tour in June, and you can grab tickets for the run right here.
Stand Atlantic say f*ck everything and run
For their new album, Stand Atlantic wrote songs that reflected what was rattling in their heads — anxiety, doubt, dread. The result is F.E.A.R. (short for “Fuck Everything And Run”), and it’s their most relentless material yet. Ahead of the release, the band dropped another new single called “switchblade.” Listen to the track here, and don’t forget to preorder/presave the record.
LP is coming to a screen near you
Having released latest album Churches at the tail end of 2021, LP is giving fans an opportunity to hear the tracks live, and you don’t even need to leave your living room. Thanks to Veeps, you can tune into the artist’s exclusive livestream May 1, live from The Fillmore in Philadelphia. Get your tickets now.
