Independent pop-punk band Talk Show Host debuted its latest single this week, along with the song’s companion video.

The band debuted its new single, ‘Blood in the Sand,’ Friday, along with the song’s video. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album, Mid-Century Modern, which is scheduled for release in June through Wiretap Records and Disconnect Disconnect Records. The album’s exact release date is under consideration.

The track listing for Mid-Century Modern is noted below.

‘Mid-Century Modern’ Track Listing:

1. U A$Shole!

2. Blood in the Sand

3. Crisis Actors

4. Warmest Condolences

5. Sorry, My Mistake

6. Syntax Error OK

7. Up to No Good

8. Too Many Problems

9. The Ballad of Jack Nance

10. Lame Duck

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Blood in the Sand’ is a catchy, up-tempo pop punk opus. The infectious choral element and guitar arrangement pair with the solid but simple time keeping to make for plenty of appeal. Fans of bands, such as Jimmy Eat World, New Found Glory, and The Dangerous Summer will especially enjoy this musical presentation. The song’s lyrical theme makes for its own interest.

Front man Chris Veinot discussed the song’s lyrical theme and its video during a recent interview.

“The lyrics recount the plot of a non-existent delinquent teen movie I dreamed about during a full moon, something from the mid-to-late 60s that could’ve been directed by Al Adamson or Ray Dennis Steckler,” he said. “The title doesn’t sound like what the song sounds like, but it was the name of the picture in the dream. We might have destroyed the fabric of space & time if we’d changed it, y’know?”

“The video has nothing to do with the song and everything to do with the fact that we are still under lockdown and all we have footage of is cats,” added Veinot. Sincere apologies to all the dog persons.

DIM Gets Existential In New Single

Independent rock band DIM is taking on life’s ups and downs in its new single.

The band — Matt Mulkey (Young Mountain, MOLEKEY, ex-Woe is Me), Ben Cato (ex-The Dangerous Summer), Nick Lowry, and Charlie Pinkard — debuted its new single, ‘Start Over Again‘ Thursday. The song’s musical arrangement features a sound and stylistic approach that will appeal just as much to fans of this band’s other projects as to emo fans in general.

The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement takes on the topic of being at that proverbial crossroads that everyone reaches at various times in life.

Mulkey explained the theme in a prepared statement.

“Have you ever been stuck in a circumstance not knowing what the right move is? It sometimes leaves you feeling completely lost or trapped inside your mind…searching for more to life vs. the mundane job or relationship you wish to get out of,” said Mulkey. You know you need to truly find yourself and move on, and leave behind everything that didn’t serve you but you get stuck wanting to try again, to give things another shot. This is the emotion we tried to capture in “Start Over Again.”

“Whether it’s a relationship or your entire life – all of us sometimes get lost in the world wondering what we need to do next,” he added. “Whether it’s a relationship or your entire life, all of us sometimes get lost in the world wondering what we need to do next. As the song says, ‘To start something new or mend what has been, why do I wish we’d start over again?’”

Floorbird Debuts New Single, ‘Navy Blue’

Independent emo band Floorbird debuted its latest single this week.

The band — Eric Reavey, Drew Grahn, Kevin Folk, and Tom Brucker — debuted its new single ‘Navy Blue‘ Thursday.  The song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming EP Fall Apart Anywhere, which is scheduled for release Sept. 25.  Its debut comes less than two months after the band debuted the EP’s lead single, ‘I’m Not Nervous.’

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Navy Blue’ is a gentle, flowing, guitar-driven composition that will appeal to fans of fellow emo acts, such as Dashboard Confessional, The Dangerous Summer, and Grayscale.  The song’s lyrical content meanwhile deals with a personal matter that is at the heart of so many relationships.

Reavey talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview.

“Navy Blue is one of the more upbeat songs on the record. It’s all about communication issues – how (for me, at least) they tend to be the most intense when we feel hurt or unheard, which are vexingly the times when healthy communication is most important – and the damage that can cause across your life,” he said.

Pre-orders for Fall Apart Anywhere are open.

‘Navy Blue’ and ‘I’m Not Nervous’ are available to stream and download here.
