Not sure how this gem of a song missed me when it came out in 2009. I probably overlooked it as I thought the band was a bit too metal core (too much screaming) for my taste. Granted a lot of their songs fit that description, but I’ve started looking through their discography again and I really missed out on some great songs. The best of which is their equivalent to the Green Day track: “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” by which I mean that the solo acoustic track that doesn’t really fit the rest of the album and subsequently hidden at the back of the record turns into the biggest single.
Well, a new album is soon to be released for my favorite Japanese rock band, and they’ve released their first single… It also looks like I’m not the only one in the USA that has taken notice of these guys. The record label Fueled By Ramen who’s previous artists include: Paramore, Panic at the Disco, and Fall Out Boy have scooped them up for an English release and if this first single is an example of what’s to come I’m excited. It’s certainly a bit more pop than they’ve released in the past but I think they still maintain their sound whilst adding catchiness for a potentially big new audience!
I already posted the first track I heard from this Welsh band, but this next track is their most popular track (recently). If you haven’t checked them out yet you should, I’m definitely a fan. At the bottom is their currently most popular song, a great acoustic track from 3 years ago called ‘A Part of Me’ feat. Laura Whiteside.
Randomly came across this gem the other day. It’s a really solid pop/punk cover of a song I already love. If you missed it like I did then enjoy.
Not really a metal fan, but I found this cover strangely addicting to listen to. It’s certainly a really well done adaptation and Nikki Simmons has a solid voice. Free here.
