Featured Band - Architects

Architects' 7th album, "All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us" was released on the 27th. The record's preceding singles definitely led us to believe this is going to be the band's best album. Which is saying something after 2014's "Lost Forever//Lost Together" flew past expectations.

twenty øne piløts - "Heathens" Single Review

What's better than a new song from twenty øne piløts? Using it in the highly anticipated "Suicide Squad" movie? Ya, that's pretty awesome. 

After the band released their first post-"Blurryface", DC announced the full track-listing for the film's soundtrack. And it's looking to be an interesting mix-mash of alt. rock, electronic rock, and rap.

Quick Picks: Guilty Pleasure Artists

You'd never publicly admit you're into these artists. Whether it be because it's not "cool" to like them, or it's just completely out of your comfort zone, you have secretly been streaming these bands for years. Thank god for "incognito" right?

We're not saying these artists are bad in any way, nor are we saying it's bad to like them. But we totally get why people aren't jumping at the gun to reveal they're fans.
