weekend curfew


Curfew Update 06/11/2009

So I know I’ve been meaning to follow up to my last post with a bunch of news and shows, so here we go:

New tracks from All Time Low’s new album, “Nothing Personal,” can be heard here. MTV has a skit that involves the band’s members being held hostage by a group of females. In the video you’ll find the skit, with fake live and real acoustic performances of new tracks like “Weightless,” “Lost In Stereo,” and “Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don’t)” sliced into it.

The Friday Night Boys have released their album, Off The Deep End, available wherever fine music is sold.

Apparently the hottest trend nowadays is for artists to collaborate on tracks with female actresses. As I mentioned in my previous post, Cobra Starship teamed up with Leighton Meester for “Good Girls Go Bad,” but I forgot to include Forever The Sickest Kids’ duet with Disney Channel’s Selena Gomez. You can see a behind the scenes look at FTSK and Selena recording their rendition of “Whoa Oh!” from AbsolutePunk. As if that wasn’t enough fun, singer-songwriter Pete Yorn has paired up with the sultry Scarlet Johansson on his track “Relator” off of his new album, The Breakup.

The Blink 182 tour schedule has seen some updates, including sell-outs, added shows and venue changes. See these updates here, although the venue for the Washington, DC show has yet to be announced. Be sure to check out AboslutePunk (link on the sidebar, I’m too lazy to put a link here) for video from their epic 9-song set on Jimmy Kimmel (they were only asked to play 2 songs).

Boulder, CO’s very own 3OH!3 released their new video for “Starstrukk.” The video was directed by Sum41 drummer Steve Jocz.

Jack’s Mannequin also released a music video. Check out their latest for “Swim.”

Luis Dubuc aka The Secret Handshake has a new video, too. See the video for “All For You.

Finally don’t forget Taking Back Sunday’s video for “Sink Into Me,” now seen in its entirety.

Nevershoutnever has finally chosen a label. Christofer Drew and Co. have signed to Warner Bros. Watch an interview with Drew from the MTV Buzzworthy Blog

Drop It Like It’s March

Not Without a FightNow that March is here, let’s look ahead to some highly anticipated albums that will be dropping this month. New Found Glory is set to release their sixth studio album, Not Without a Fight, on March 10. But if you’re like me and count all of NFG’s EPs and things like From the Screen to Your Stereo 1 & 2, than it’s really their 17th or so album. This will be the Coral Springs, FL easycore outfit’s first release on Epitaph Records since signing with the label last September. New Found Glory set the stage for pop-punk/emo rock music earlier in the decade as part of a heavily touted Drive-Thru Records lineup that also included the likes of Finch, Something Corporate, as well as The Starting Line. Currently finishing their tour of Japan, the band will return to the States shortly and begin touring the US with Bayside, Set Your Goals and Shai Hulud. NFG is also scheduled to appear at this year’s Bamboozle in May before a short stint of European shows.

Who Are You Now?Fueled By Ramen’s This Providence will release their sophomore effort, titled Who Are You Now? on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17. This album follows the release of The Bright Lights EP back in October of last year. The quartet, fighting out of Seattle, WA, are currently on the Snakes & Suits Acoustic Tour in support of The Academy Is… with Evan Taubenfeld. Following Snakes & Suits, This Providence will slither into Washington, DC next on April 24 with Copeland, Paper Route and Brooke Waggoner. Check out the new single, “Letdown,” on TP’s MySpace.

Finally in other news, the band that was formerly known as Sparky’s Flaw is now formerly known as Parachute VA. The band confirmed via Twitter that they have indeed dropped the VA from their moniker, and are now simply, Parachute.  The band cites legal reasons for originally including the VA in their name.
