The Royal Concept - Smile EP

My loyal readers should already know The Royal Concept: the Swedish indie pop rockers released last friday their new EP Smile, again on Republic Records - Lava Music.

The 5-track EP features the new single Fashion and was produced in Los Angeles by Tony Hoffer.
Tony is an expert producer that has a great number of high-profile names in his carnet, including The Fratellis, Depeche Mode, The Kooks, Phoenix and Foster The People, so it's not strange that Smile recalls in a couple of songs Mark Foster's band.

A fresh Glass of BETA STATE Tuesday, 18 August 2015 20:40 by madseason
Beta State - Glass [EP]

San Francisco rockers Beta State are independently releasing their new digital effort Glass [EP] today August 18.

The EP features 4 new songs, including the band latest single Left With The Pain.

The comment of the band about the new release: "Our sound has evolved into some new territory for the band. We experimented a lot with new textures and sounds, veering away from our older writing habits of jamming in a room in favor of sitting down and writing the best song first, then filling in the instruments later. It's something we learned working with Linkin Park, and that writing style seems to have really gelled between the bandmates. This has been some of the most rewarding songwriting we have ever done, and we are happy to share with you the result."

City And Colour - Wasted Love

Canadian alternative rock/folk act City And Colour will release their new, fifth studio album entitled If I Should Go Before You next October 9 on Dine Alone Records/Cooking Vinyl.

Watch the lyric video for the first single off the new record, Wasted Love, clicking on the image. Also, check the lyric video for another new track, the epic Woman (over 9 minutes long!) here.

The words of main-man Dallas Green about the album: "Over the last two years I've had the great pleasure of touring with an unbelievable group of musicians, who I can now safely call some of my best friends. If I Should Go Before You is the record I made with those friends. It's a collection of 11 songs - the thoughts I had on my mind: a last ditch effort to find something better and leave well enough alone. You can steal it, stream it or even buy it! Just try to enjoy it. I know I do."
