Our new favorite song “Cake” by FREAK is served up with an equally epic new music video, watch below!
Essex-based FREAK serves up some serious bone-shaking rock’n’roll with his new single, “Cake”. Just when you thought the track couldn’t get any better, Freak released an epic music video for “Cake” which you must watch below. Try not to lose a whole day by watching it 500 times in a row like me (worth it though!). You can purchase your copy of “Cake” to listen to on repeat now here.
FREAK is currently on tour in the UK supporting INHEAVEN this month and Black Honey next month! For a full list of tour dates, more information, and to get your tickets click here!
Maggie Rogers released her EP Now That The Light Is Fading today!
After a gorgeous television debut performance of “Alaska” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Maggie Rogers dropped her highly anticipated new EP Now That The Light Is Fading today! You can purchase/stream the EP now through multiple venues listed on her website here.
Maggie Rogers is off to a blazing start this year, selling out most of her tour, with announced performances at several festivals around the world including SXSW this March, and now with the release of this gorgeous new EP, we have a new set of songs to discover live. There is something extremely nostalgic and warming about Maggie Rogers’ voice. The storytelling lyrics that weave through each track on this EP connect on a deeper level, as if the EP was made and released by an old friend who truly understands you. One of my favorite tracks off Now That The Light Is Fading is the upbeat and mesmerizing “Better”. “Better” is one of those songs you find yourself dancing to without even releasing it, and like her other tracks, the vocals and lyrics are impossible not to sing along to.
The other song you might not recognize yet from the EP is “Color Song”. The hymn-remiscient minimalist tune features stunning vocal harmonies and nature sounds, like what you would imagine camping with Maggie Rogers would be like. We’ll start the fire and set up camp to hear those vocals all day!
The EP also includes previously released favorites “Alaska”, “On + Off” and “Dog Years”. Listen to each track below and finally get your copy of this gorgeous debut EP via Maggie Roger’s website here.
Maggie Rogers will be heading to Philly to play a sold out show at The Foundry on April 7th! For more tour dates and information, click here.

Just when you were playing A Crow Left Of The Murder on repeat reminiscing about the simpler times of the Bush presidency (and how fucked up it is that they were “simpler times”)… Incubus has announced that they are releasing new music and going on tour this summer with your other favorite band Jimmy Eat World!!! Further proof that Incubus loves us and wants us to be happy.
Something about this tour announcement makes me feel like someone on the Incubus team really wanted to make my life this year. I’ve loved Incubus since I was 13 and true love lasts a lifetime. Most of my “On this Day” reminders on Facebook are me at various Incubus shows over the years and to be completely honest, they are one band I actually miss while they are on breaks/ recording. Yeah, I’m a fucking megafan and I don’t care who knows it!!!
Incubus announced they would be releasing a new single, “Nimble Bastard” on February 16th from their upcoming album, due to be released in April (my birthday month conveniently). As if that wasn’t great enough, Incubus just announced a summer tour with none other than Jimmy Eat World. This tour will be part of a Live Nation promotion called “Ticket To Rock” which will allow music fans to purchase tickets for multiple shows at select venues for a discounted price. Check out the dates below and look for me at most of them!
