Ghost Stories – Coldplay

Over the last few albums, more than most bands of similar influence, Coldplay has experienced a sort of blooming into their current mature state. While many of us miss the days of Parachutes and A Rush of Blood To the Head, an interesting turning point came around in 2005, Coldplay never being the same since.

Rescue & Restore – August Burns Red

It seems like just last year August Burns Red was releasing their highly anticipated new album Leveler, but in reality almost two have passed. Their tasteful metal holiday album Sleddin’ Hill did a good job of filling the void, but fans have been itching for something new out of August Burns Red for a while now. Enter Rescue […]

Stone Sour fire up a frosty Milwaukee

There’s nothing like a heavy double headliner to warm up an icy Milwaukee winter. Up until now it has been pretty mild, and I say that for the weather and live shows in the area, but that all changed when Corey Taylor and the rest of the seasoned rock veterans of Stone Sour had something […]

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals wake up Milwaukee, Pabst Theater

Grace Potter isn’t your average attention seeking pop star. Sure she’s got the looks, but it’s her cozy feel-good music that sets her apart. “We love coming back to Milwaukee!” “Milwaukee knows how to groove!” Grace Potter wasn’t short of compliments for the persistently welcoming Milwaukee crowd.

Atlas – Parkway Drive

Parkway Drive has kept a pretty good track record when it comes to releasing new music. They also have a great history of sticking together with one another and staying a band for more than 1 album. Bands breaking up in the metal core industry is an everyday occurrence and these guys somehow keep it […]

Texas In July – Texas In July

Texas in July’s self-titled follow up to 2011’s One Reality has brought their metal endeavours to new heights. Now, being a huge fan of Texas in July, I had some idea of what was to come with this much yearned fall release, but I was still pleasantly surprised with most of the new music. Their self-titled album hits my ears […]

The 2nd Law – Muse

Muse has been working their way to superstar status starting with their very first release. These guys just know what’s up and know how to put fantastic music into people lives. If you haven’t figured it out already, Muse has this sort of rock-pop-electronica feel to their music. It’s nothing too overboard though; it’s actually […]
