Album Review: The Peace And The Panic by Neck Deep

After releasing singles “Happy Judgement Day,” “Where Do We Go When We Go,” “Motion Sickness,” and “In Bloom,” the pop punk group Neck Deep released their album The Peace And The Panic today via. Hopeless Records.


This album is the third album (others include Wishful Thinking and Life’s Not Out To Get You) Neck Deep has released under this record label. Vocalist Ben Barlow said in an interview with Alternative Press that the new album that the new album displays how he’s grown and experienced life and death.

Here is the track list:

  1. Motion Sickness
  2. Happy Judgement Day
  3. The Grand Delusion
  4. Parachute
  5. In Bloom
  6. Don’t Wait (Feat. Sam Carter)
  7. Critical Mistake
  8. Wish You Were Here
  9. Heavy Lies
  10. 19 Seventy Sumthin’
  11. Where Do We Go When We Go

After hearing the singles released, I was excited to hear the rest of The Peace And The Panic. “In Bloom” was the most recent single released which was refreshing to hear. I like the fact that Neck Deep still kept their pop punk roots (i.e. “Motion Sickness,”) heavy lyrics (i.e. “Wish You Were Here”), but is a bit experimental with songs like “In Bloom,” “Critical Mistake,” and “19 Seventy Sumthin‘” with a lighter and more pop sound. It was nice to see that Neck Deep isn’t sticking to a mold of the music that they’ve previously released. This album is different from Life’s Not Out To Get Youit has pop punk roots (i.e. “Motion Sickness,”) heavy/ raw lyrics (i.e. Wish You Were Here,”) and has the element of experimentation (especially with tracks like “In Bloom,” “Critical Mistake” and “19 Seventy Sumthin'”). This album is a perfect example of how Neck Deep will continue to grow and that their albums will be more than a part two of LNOTGY.

If you want a pop punk fix, I highly recommend checking out the album. My favorites off of this album have to be “In Bloom,” and “19 Seventy Sumthin'” for the reason that “In Bloom” was the first single released that showed a different side to Neck Deep that what is expected. The introduction with the instrumentals reminds me of Blink- 182. I love that “19 Seventy Sumthin'” is a song that’s so raw and full of deep emotion. The song explains a lot about Ben Barlow’s parents and what had happened with his father’s passing.

Neck Deep will be touring across the United States in January and February. There is no word yet if there is any band accompanying them at this time. Tickets and tour information can be found here. Neck Deep is also on the cover of Alternative Press.

In other news, The Maine released the music video for “Taxi” and announced additional dates for their upcoming tour with DREAMERS and Night Riots (tickets and tour information can be found here.) Weezer announced their upcoming album Pacific Daydream will debut on Oct. 27 and released “Mexican Fender.” Brand New announced a tour from September to November across the United States (tickets and tour information can be found here) and hear Science Fiction here.

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!

Album Review: “Last Young Renegade” By All Time Low

All Time Low released their latest album Last Young Renegade on June 2 via. Fueled By Ramen. This is All Time Low’s first album under Fueled By Ramen’s record label.

All Time Low was under Hopeless Records and changed record labels last year. The public new about the label change on Feb. 17 via. Facebook with a statement by Alex Gaskarth.

Within the time span of the statement on Facebook and the release of Last Young Renegade, All Time Low made public five singles: “Dirty Laundry,” “Last Young Renegade,” “Nice2KnoU,” “Life Of The Party,” and “Good Times.” Besides “Good Times,” every other single had a music video release with the song. Interesting enough, Jack Barakat tweeted explaining how “Good Times” was the first track written.

Here is the track list to the album:

  1. Last Young Renegade
  2. Drugs & Candy
  3. Dirty Laundry
  4. Good Times
  5. Nice2KnoU
  6. Life of the Party
  7. Nightmares
  8. Dark Side of Your Room
  9. Ground Control (feat. Tegan and Sara)
  10. Afterglow

The album was different from their previous albums because of the sound. The sound and lyrics of the album were more mature and slower vibe which shows a different side to the band’s usual upbeat and energized songs like “Dear Maria, Count Me In” or “Six Feet Under The Stars.” Considering the album came out with five released singles, it was easy to predict that this album is different.

The band has shown tremendous growth in this album. The band changed record labels, and I feel made this album extra special. The album isn’t as pop or youthful but its relatable. I like the fact All Time Low has shown different aspects of their life as a group. The song “Nice2KnoU” shows that the band is going beyond their youth for inspiration for lyrics but has “Good Times” which shows off their nostalgic side. They dabble with bringing back lyrics involving love or romance with “Dirty Laundry” They expand more about cutting off bad relationships with their song “Drugs & Candy.”

As someone who grew up with All Time Low, it’s nice to see them mature as I do. I can’t wait to finally meet All Time Low next week. I’ll be sure to talk about my experience in next week’s post. What do you think of the album? Which song is your favorite? Let me know by tweeting it to me @ovictoriamedia.

In other news, Neck Deep announced “The Peace and The Panic EU Tour” that goes around Europe and the UK throughout the months of October and November (ticket information can be found on their website,) The Maine announced a tour throughout the month of September with Night Riots and The Technicolors in Europe and the UK (tickets and tour information can be found here,) Blink 182 and PVRIS announced a show together in New York, Punk Goes Pop Vol. 7 is going to be released, according to Rock Sound, with bands like Too Close To Touch, Boston Manor, Capsize, and more.

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!

*I will be going to see Real Friends in Irving Plaza in NYC tonight and will be meeting All Time Low on June 6 at a local record shop. I will be writing about my experience for next week.

Album Review: “After Laughter” by Paramore

Paramore has been a dominant band in the alternative music scene since the release of their first album All We Know Is Falling. Paramore released their latest album “After Laughter” today via. Fueled By Ramen. This is Paramore’s fifth album.

The singles released were “Hard Times,” and “Told You So.” Both singles released with music videos and have millions of views on YouTube. When Paramore released “Told You So” Spotify temporarily stopped working. Hayley Williams tweeted about the incident. After Laughter is a 12 song album. Here is the track list:

  1. Hard Times
  2. Rose- Colored Boy
  3. Told You So
  4. Forgiveness
  5. Fake Happy
  6. 26
  7. Pool
  8. Grudges
  9. Caught In The Middle
  10. Idle Worship
  11. No Friend
  12. Tell Me How

Paramore has gone through a lot since forming in 2004. The group lost Jeremy in 2005 for a brief moment, Josh and Zac Farro in 2010, lost Jeremy Davis again in 2015, and now Zac is back in the group. Even though the band has gone through some hard times (no pun intended) they always come out victorious.

The album is definitely different than prior albums, but I must say that the overall composition is phenomenal. The instrumentals on the album have such a rad vibe with the 80s/ electric feeling, but the lyrics are so hard hitting and display a lot about what Hayley Williams and Taylor York have been going through with Paramore since their release of Paramore. The lyrics display a lot of hurt, especially in “Fake Happy,” “Caught In The Middle,” “26,” and basically the whole album. When listening, grab some tissues for this emotional roller coaster. Just the title After Laughter shows that the content is hard hitting. “No Friend” has vocals by Aaron Weiss of MewithoutYou.

When listening to the album in its entirety, I couldn’t help but think about how some songs on the album parallel other popular songs. “Rose Colored Boy” resembles a bit of “Cherry Bomb” by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts at the beginning of the song. The beat in “Forgiveness” sounds like “Amber” by 311, and the vibe in the chorus reminded me of “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” by Tears For Fears.

Each album Paramore has put out is different than their previous work. The music was more alternative that a pop sound especially with All We Know is Falling, Riot, and Brand New Eyes but listening to Paramore’s self titled album Paramore it showcases that the group can still have that rock/alternative vibe but is able to experiment and isn’t afraid to try something new. I like that the song “26” is stripped down with the acoustic guitar and lyrically displays the hardships that was going on. With the strings that are in the song, the emotional ballad reminds me of “Hate To See Your Heart Break” and “Misguided Ghosts.” I appreciate that “26” wasn’t near the end of the album like most emotional ballads are in albums.

Overall, I feel like this album is what Paramore needed to release in order to move forward emotionally (similar to when Paramore released Brand New Eyes back in 2009.) You can buy the album on iTunes, physically at a local record store, or listen to it on Spotify, Apple Music and more.

This album has been on my list of highly anticipated after their release of Paramore in 2013. Since the release of their self titled album, I saw Paramore perform 3 times on land and twice on sea (at Parahoy in 2014 and 2016.) Paramore and Mayday Parade are my two favorite bands, and everytime something new is released I pre-order the latest albums and can’t help but feel overjoyed.

Paramore has announced tours in Europe and most of the dates are sold out. Tickets and tour information for Paramore’s tour can be found on their website. Congratulations to Paramore for putting out their fifth album which was something that I can say I was not expecting but very much enjoy.

In other news, Broadside released their next single “Hidden Colors” off of their upcoming album Paradise with a music video, This Wild Life announced on Twitter a summer tour across the United States, Alternative Press reported that Paramore settled the legal dispute between Paramore and Jeremy Davis, and Dashboard Confessional, All American Rejects and The Maine have a select amount of dates that they will be touring together in the summer. Also, I attended the Mayday Parade concert in NYC on Tuesday May 9, Long Island May 11, and I will be going to see State Champs tonight at Irving Plaza in NYC. Next week I will have a review about the shows I went to. Until then…

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!

Concert Review: The Maine @ Webster Hall NYC

The Arizona rock group, The Maine has been touring across the United States for their album Lovely, Little, Lonely which came out in April 7.

The “Lovely, Little, Lonely World Tour” is accompanied by Beach Weathers and Mowglis as The Maine’s opening bands. Tickets and tour information can be found here.

I got the chance to see The Maine perform live in New York City at Webster Hall. I’ve been to Webster Hall for a few shows like PVRIS and State Champs, so I knew the setup of the venue and how much maximum capacity was. The train was running late, but I got into the city to see The Maine in time!


I just want to discuss the setlist. I had a great time dancing and singing along to old and new hits. I wish there were a few new songs they played like “Taxi” or “I Only Wanna Talk To You” and some older hits like “Into Your Arms,” “You Left Me,” or “We’ll All Be,” but overall I enjoyed the set. I loved seeing “(Un)Lost,” “Lost In Nostalgia,” and “We All Roll Along.” Here is their setlist:

  1. Lovely
  2. Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu
  3. Am I Pretty?
  4. Like We Did (Windows Down)
  5. (Un)Lost
  6. My Heroine
  7. We All Roll Along
  8. The Way We Talk
  9. English Girls
  10. Take What You Can Carry
  11. Lost In Nostalgia
  12. Right Girl
  13. Raining In Paris
  14. Girls Do What They Want
  15. Diet Soda Society
  16. Do You Remember? (The Other Half Of 23)
  17. Bad Behavior
  18. Another Night On Mars

I’ve seen The Maine perform with Mayday Parade in 2012, twice at Warped Tour, and twice after the release of American Candy. This was the fifth time seeing The Maine, and everytime I see them I get such amazing vibes from the group.

The Maine have a great stage presence. John O’ Callaghan has a way of getting everyone engaged in the songs whether they know them or not. The crowd was electric and sang every word of the song. I love the fact that The Maine lets people live in the moment and is so humble for every experience they have. Being apart of The Maine’s show was wonderful and unforgettable. I hope that The Maine tours for their album Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop next year.

In other news, Broadside released their first single “Puzzle Pieces” off of their upcoming record Paradise which will be released on June 16. You can pre-order the album here and see them tour with Real Friends now! Fall Out Boy released a new song “Young And Menace” and will be releasing a new album and touring. The album, Mania will release on Sept. 15 and the tour begins in the fall. Moose Blood announced a US Tour. Tickets and tour information can be found here. Grayscale released “If I Ever See You Again,” Blink 182 released a song “6/8” this week, and Of Mice & Men released a single “Unbreakable.”

What a rad week in music! Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!

Album Review: “Lovely Little Lonely” By The Maine

The Maine is a rock group from Tempe, Arizona. 2017 marks their 10th year as a group. The Maine released their album, Lovely, Little, Lonely on April 7, 2017 via. 8123.

Before and during the recording process of Lovely, Little, Lonely,  The Maine created a docu-series called “Miserable Youth.” The docu-series showed the process The Maine went through for the album. It was interesting to see the process a band would go through. It was unique that The Maine took their fans through the process. (I wrote a blog post about the series here.)

The singles that released prior to album debut were: “Bad Behavior,” “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu,” and “Do You Remember? (The Other Half of 23). “Bad Behavior” had a music video release prior to the album’s debut. Didn’t read my review of “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu?” Check out my review here.

Here is the track list:

  1. Don’t Come Down
  2. Bad Behavior
  3. Lovely
  4. Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu
  5. Taxi
  6. Do You Remember? (The Other Half of 23)
  7. Little
  8. The Sound of Reverie
  9. Lost in Nostalgia
  10. I Only Wanna Talk To You
  11. Lonely
  12. How Do You Feel?

I’ve been a fan of The Maine since Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop and this album was nothing short of fantastic. Lovely, Little, Lonely was one my personal list of highly anticipated albums. Each week of “Miserable Youth” made me more excited for the album to be here. What also got me excited for the release was the counting down for the album on The Maine’s social media allowing people to listen to small portions of each song.

I enjoyed the fact that The Maine felt comfortable making an album they seem super proud and enthusiastic for Lovely, Little, Lonely. Each song is quality and sticks to The Maine’s roots of being pop- rock. The moment I heard each single, I knew this album was going to be amazing. My favorite part about the album were the songs “Lovely,” “Little,” and “Lonely” for the fact they were interludes transitioning one song from another. One of my favorite parts about listening to an album in its entirety is seeing if the group used transitions from song to song which The Maine did.

The Maine will be going on a world tour in honor of Lovely, Little, Lonely. Tickets and tour information can be found on their website themaineband.com. Make sure to tweet me @ovictoriamedia telling me your favorite off of Lovely, Little, Lonely.

In other news, Sykes released the music video for “Glimmer,” Falling In Reverse said that it will be playing two days at the 2017 Vans Warped Tour via. Twitter, Cold War Kids released their latest album LA DIVINE with a song featuring Bishop Briggs, K.

Review: “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu” by The Maine

The Maine’s upcoming album Lovely, Little, Lonely will be released in about a month, but the group released a new single off of the album. “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu” is the second single released by The Maine, the first being “Bad Behavior.”

This will be The Maine’s sixth full length album they are going to release. The group has several EPs but keeps up with creating new content and touring. Their last album was released in 2015, American Candy. The Maine is a rock group from Tempe, Arizona. The group has been together for 10 years.

“Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu” has a range of paces throughout the song. The guitars are prominent in this song over “Bad Behavior” which is nice to hear. I really enjoyed the fact that this song has more of a story within the lyrics as well. I like the fact the lyrics for this track were written similar to how John O’ Callaghan would write poetry. He’s a simple type of writer but gives depth and meaning. The two singles make me curious about what else is in store for the album.

I can’t wait for the record Lovely, Little, Lonely on April 7. I’ve been a huge fan of The Maine since their album Can’t Stop Won’t Stop and I’m excited to see what else is in store for the new album. The Maine also is fantastic live. I’ve seen them live four times, and I’m seeing them again in NYC on April 27.

The Maine had the 8123 fest in January, and after the album releases will tour around the world. Tickets and tour information can be found on their website. Also, if you wanted to see the process the band went through for this album, you can watch their docu-series on YouTube. I wrote a blog post about their series that can be found here.

In other news, Pierce The Veil and Sum 41 will be touring together across the United States, and Linkin Park performed “Heavy” featuring Kiiara on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
