At the beginning of the year, I was minding my own business, when Simple Plan announced a tour in the US and EU which OBVIOUSLY yet again I couldn’t attend *sigh* and because I wanted to hurt myself a little more, I thought “it’d be fun to check out those bands that are playing before them”.
SPOILER: if you didn’t get it from there, that’s how I discovered Seaway.
And if I was internally crying because I couldn’t attend the damn shows, I was even more gutted when I first started listening to Seaway. Why ?
Cause Seaway is A FREAKING GOOD BAND. Continue reading Down on the SEAWAY and taking a little VACATION
I remember the first time I went online and found through youtube and the Rise Records channel a new band then, who had just been signed.
Curious of a band whose name is the capital of my birth country, I decided to check it, and on the first notes of the song ( St Patrick I remember it is), I immediately fell in love with them.
What attracted me was not only their sound, their lyrics, but also their aesthetic which weirdly makes me see life in black and white (both their albums have black and white covers) and a world of their own, mixed between Tim Burton movies, Edgar Allen Poe poetry and nowadays music.
Sorry for the lack of news this month, it’s been quite crazy !
But I promise you, lots of new things in store music-wise, lots of excitement !
Also, know that there are lots to come, as I’ve decided it was maybe time to talk about things that matter to me, and not just music (although, a lot of what matters to me is connected or linked to music, so expect a bit of that too, still 😉 )
Hope you guys will still be there when everything unfolds !
In the meantime, here’s a cover song that I absolute am CRAZY of by yet another great band !
Here’s the Can’t Feel My Face cover for Punk Goes Pop 7 by The Amity Affliction ! Available on iTunes
FYI: this song is originally by The Weeknd, from his sophomore album Beauty Behind The Madness and is a song about one’s love for another. I’ve been so addicted to that song, it’s crazy. So when I say that this cover is getting me all pumped, it’s really an understatement ! Hope you enjoy it !
4 years is WAYYYYYY too long to wait ! And we’ve waited enough !
PARAMORE. IS. BACK.
And they’re back stronger than ever !
Paramore’s self titled album takes us back to 2013, and a slightly different line-up. But the past is the past, and not only do Paramore welcome former drummer Zac Farro into their ranks, but they also welcome new aesthetics, new sound, catchier than ever, and sounding like summer.
If you didn’t know what to listen to during those long days, spent at the beach or even driving to work dreaming of the beach, that song will take you there !
And they’re back with not JUST a single and a music video. No. That’d be way to simple lol.
They’re back with a full album coming out May 12th on Fueled By Ramen, called AFTER LAUGHTER and a “small tour” in June.
When Paramore comes back, they come back in style ! Please enjoy the music video below and press that replay button as much as I do, cause the song is THAT good and addictive !

There are bands that you know that you’re gonna like from the first string that’s played on the first song you hear. It’s been like that with Manolo Panic !
One day, you check your mails, and you see that someone hints you toward listening to a band. And when you do, you think to yourself « How is this gonna be ? ». Thankfully, I’m open to any new music, I love music so much. And I was glad I did open myself to new music and open my mails to find them out.
Manolo Panic is one of those bands that, when you listen to them, you just feel cool. And they slowly become a new obsession !
My inner self is considering writing a complete non-sense and random letters as teenagers do nowadays to express their happiness, but my adult self is a bit more composed and just screams internally, like one of those memes you see online.
