The Release of “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore.”

Moose Blood is a pop punk band from Canterbury, Kent. On March 9, Moose Blood released its third full length album I Don’t Think I Can Do It Anymore via. Hopeless Records.

The singles released prior to the album were “Talk In Your Sleep,” “Have I Told You Enough,” “It’s Too Much,” and “Just Outside.”

Here is the track list:

  1. Have I Told You Enough
  2. Talk In Your Sleep
  3. Just Outside
  4. You Left In The Worst Way
  5. All The Time
  6. Can We Stay Like This
  7. Pull Me From The Floor
  8. Walk All Day With You
  9. Such A Shame
  10. Promise Me
  11. It’s Too Much

After hearing the singles, I was excited to hear what album would sound like in whole. Personally, when I listen to an album, I tend to not pay as much attention to the middle portion of  the album because the beginning and end songs are strong. I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore was not like other albums.

The strongest part of the album was the middle portion. The singles were nice to have as a cushion at the beginning and end of the album. Strategically, it’s interesting that the group’s singles are at the beginning and the end so listeners are hooked to begin the album. The album was catchy and it didn’t feel like the songs were on repeat.

My favorite songs off of the album are: “Can We Stay Like This,” “Walk All Day With You,” and “Talk In Your Sleep.”

On the U.K tour with The Dangerous Summer, Moose Blood performed “It’s Too Much,” “Just Outside,” “You Left In The Worst Way,” “Have I Told You Enough,” and “Talk In Your Sleep.” Moose Blood will be touring across the United States with Lydia, and McCafferty. Tickets and tour information can be found here. Time will tell if those songs will be performed.

In other news, Panic! At The Disco’s “Nine In The Afternoon” has been certified 2x platinum, John O’Callaghan of The Maine created a remix for “Lost In Nostalgia,” Movements partnered with the Alzheimer Association to release the music video for “Deadly Dull,” The Wonder Years released “Pyramids of Salt,” Paramore announced a summer tour with Foster The People (tickets and tour information can be found here,) The Dangerous Summer announced part 2 of “The Dangerous Summer” US tour with A Will Away and All Get Out supporting (Ticket and tour information can be found here.)

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!

The Release of ‘The Dangerous Summer.’

The Dangerous Summer is a rock band from Maryland. The Dangerous Summer released the self- titled album The Dangerous Summer on January 26 via. Hopeless Records.

The singles released prior to the album are: “Fire,” “Ghosts,” and “Valium.” The album has a 10 song tracklist:

  1. Color
  2. This Is Life
  3. Fire
  4. Ghosts
  5. Lina
  6. Wild Again
  7. Valium
  8. When I Get Home
  9. Live Forever
  10. Infinite

The Dangerous Summer broke up in 2014 and reunited in 2017 without Cody Payne. In an episode of “Lead Singer Syndrome” with Shane Told, AJ Perdomo explained the issues that went on in the band that led to the breakup. It was interesting to hear the perspective of why the group didn’t work, how by the time the group gained popularity was an awkward time for the music scene.

I’ve been following The Dangerous Summer since 2008 during If You Could Only Keep Me Alive era. When I heard that The Dangerous Summer was getting back together, I was overwhelmed with joy. One of the first bands that got me into my music exploration in alternative/ rock/ pop punk music reunited. The Dangerous Summer was on my personal list of top albums to look out for in 2018. This album did not dissapoint.

I like the simplicity of instrumentals in “Color.” I like the singles released The Dangerous Summer. As a fellow lover of TDS, I knew the moment I heard “Fire” that this album was legit going to be fire and amazing. I enjoy the lyrical content to “Luna” since AJ Perdomo has a daughter whose name is Luna. The song seems like a letter that AJ would leave her daughter which is super sweet and sentimental. The build of “Infinite” was pleasing to the ears. “When I Get Home” has a similar instrumental vibe to “No One’s Gonna Need You More” which is nice and nostalgic. Even though The Dangerous Summer broke up in 2014, the group has the ability of producing music that makes you feel like the group never left. Welcome back to the scene, The Dangerous Summer.

In other news, Patty Walters of As It Is stated he is in another band, Too Close To Touch tweeted an interesting tweet about songs they released which seens like the group is working on new music, This Wild Life stated on Instagram that each new song off up the group’s latest album will have a video, The Maine announced the last tour of 2018 in the United States (tickets and tour information can be found here.) New albums were released by Tiny Moving Parts, Marmozets, and Waterparks.

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
