The Classic Crime announce "How To Be Human"

Five years have passed since The Classic Crime released their last album, Phoenix, and now the Seattle rock group is back to unleash their fifth studio album, How To Be Human - out April 28 via BC Music.

The album was completely funded via Kickstarter, with over 2,500 backers, and it tripled the original goal. Needless to say, lead-singer Matt McDonald is pretty excited to get music out there.

“My goals for every album is to push the boundaries a bit. When we started playing together back in 2003, our influences were pretty apparent. With each record we’ve tried to go some place different, to incorporate different styles while maintaining core structure and textures.”

Hopefully we're not too far off from a first single or taste of the new stuff!! I'll keep you posted for sure.


Manafest launched Kickstarter for new album

Manafest has launched a Kickstarter for his upcoming rock album “Stones”.

It'll be his 10th studio album, his 2nd independent release without a record label, and his first full-on rock album in 5 years.

I've always wanted my music to be inspiring even when I'm writing about heavy topics or sharing a personal story of struggle.  I know when fans listen to this new album the songs will speak to everyone a different way and tears will be shed.

I went dark on this record but always come back to the light which I think many share a similar journey. Please help me bring this message of hope and inspiration to people that need it!

The title track is already out, so you can stream that below, and the new album is due out in July. Get involved in the campaign here.


The Brilliance release All Is Not Lost

If you saw and loved The Brilliance at Festival One last weekend, then I've got some news you'll love!

All Is Not Lost, their second full-length album is available now, and critics are calling it "the album you need to hear in 2017."

We're looking forward to sharing these new songs because we are in a season when, no matter what our political opinions or cultural biases, we all need to be reminded that 'All Is Not Lost,'" David said. "We need to remember to see The Divine in 'the other,' and to offer kindness and curiosity."

Critics are praising the duo for "shining a spotlight on cultural injustices," saying the album's content is "important" while also calling the release "beautiful" for its poetic lyrics and intricate string arrangements.
