onerepublic

One Republic have set a release date for Native (March 26 btw) and have published the video for "If I Lose Myself" online. 

While the video and the song have a pretty upbeat vibe, the song is actually about something pretty morbid, as the band told MTV News.

Music Video: Dukes "Sweet"

Check out the new music video for Dukes' song "Sweet". Very cool idea, to match the very coolness of the song.

Hopefully it won't be too long till an EP (or maybe even a full length album) is out from these guys - I'll keep you posted.

Stream: Paramore's new song "Now"

paramore

Head to paramore.net to stream Paramore's new song "Now" and (in the next couple of days) pre-order options for the international store will go live so you can get their new album first. Due April 9, and I'd expect most of the preorder options to come with an instant download of the new song.

Manafest churns out music videos like no-one's business. From his latest album Fighter, he's already done "Pushover" and  "Throw It Away", and now here's the latest one for "Human" - probably my favourite so far.
