Real Friends celebrate 7 years of being a band with “Something Old, Something New”

Pop-punks, Real Friends have decided to celebrate being a band for 7 years. You can watch the acoustic songs performed below.

The band took to Twitter to talk about the new project: “In celebration of our seven year existence as a band we’ve decided to frequently post these acoustic (maybe sometimes not acoustic) sessions. We have quite a few songs under our belts now, so we figure this would be a good way to shine a new light on our songs. These performances will take place in one location with two songs being played. One song will be old and one song will be new(er). This is the first installment of Something Old, Something New Sessions. Enjoy.”

Rarig’s Kid (punk) announce EP “Baba Yaga”

Boston punk act Rarig’s Kid have announced an EP “Baba Yaga”. You can give it a listen below.

The band had some things to say about the Trump presidency, and took to their Facebook page to express themselves:
“When we started writing songs for our follow-up (and first proper) release a year and a half ago, the world was a different place. The specter of a Trump presidency was eerily floating above our heads in the rafters of public discourse, and no one truly believed that it would descend upon us and blow up in our faces. We have an uniquely American four-year airborne toxic event that seems to be quite adept at belying the decency that (arguably) resides within us all, and is spreading across the tiny planet that we, for better or for worse, have inherited from our forebears. With all that being said, this is not an appeal to verbosity, to pretension, or to sanctimony. This is an appeal to the humanity that we all share, perhaps the one thing that cannot be disputed in the forum. Don’t simply weather the storm. Be the new day that breaks upon it.”

Figure It Out (pop-punk) release video for “Silence Isn’t Golden”

Phoenix Punks, Figure It Out, have just put out a video for their new song “Silence Isn’t Golden” and you can watch it below.

When asked about the song, vocalist/guitarist Mike Weakley said: “I wasn’t looking to write another energetic high-tempo song when looking for the title track. The last EP was full of them. I wanted to write something that reminded me of Blink’s ‘Stay Together for the Kids” or an ‘Adams Song’ chorus. When I belt the hook, it’s big and powerful. The song is about any relationship where if the communication isn’t there, it’s time to let go. I think it came out meaningful and still fun.”
