Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.





Blues Lawyer releases instant classic debut LP 'Guess Work'

Every time I’m convinced there’s no more good punk left, an act like Oakland’s Blues Lawyer pops up to remind me I couldn’t be more wrong. Their debut LP Guess Work is a stunning exercise in brevity, filled with tongue-in-cheek lo-fi tracks that hark right back to the ‘70s. None of the members are interested in attempting to impress you (or waste any of your time) with overwrought guitar solos or steep buildups. They’re only interested in making instant classics, and they do so in two minutes or less. They said it best themselves on the punk puppy love anthem “Waste” (streaming below), where the chorus declares “I don’t want to waste time / I want to waste with you.” Well, we want to waste with you, too. - Lilly Milman 





Satellite Mode release dreamy single "Terrified"

Satellite Mode return with a brand new single, "Terrified", the follow-up to their previous release "Gave It All". Where the year's earlier release hollowed out hearts with its thundering sound, "Terrified" -- although about the love of fear -- turns more major-key pop and highlights Jessica Carvo's melodic talent and Alex Marko's ear for catchy chord progressions. This marks the fourth single released this year alone, which gives fans hope that a new release following 2017's Wild Excuses is on the way. The band hasn't made any big announcements yet, however, they've spent the year bouncing from coast to coast, releasing videos and singles, and getting their music on Sirius AltNation - among other radio stations. But 2018 isn't over yet, so there may be more from Satellite Mode still to come. Listen to "Terrified" below. - Will Sisskind





New Video: "Sickness" (Live) - Lovelorn

Live footage of Lovelorn’s recent set from June 30, 2018 at Johnny Brenda’s has emerged. The video of “Sickness” captures the murky, smoke-laced haze that surrounds the trio. Akin to acts like The Kills, its suspenseful, buzzsaw guitar and percussive backdrop oozes ominous adrenaline, while giving you something to dance to in the dark corners of the mind. You can find the ex-Creepoid members performing next in Philly on Wednesday, August 1 at the Electric Factory, opening for Glassjaw and Quicksand, along with Primitive Weapons.
