One of the most favorited franchises of all-time, the Punk Goes… series, has released the first song from their sixth volume, coming out soon.

WCAR vocalist Dave Stephens spoke via press release:

We chose to cover Taylor Swift’s ‘Trouble’ because we all like the song and had a vision of how to make it our own style. Beyond that, it’s a cry for attention. We hope Taylor Swift will notice us now since we’re all in love with her.

Also of note, August Burns Red will be breaking down walls covering “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
