Turns out the concert was an all day thing. We had to leave before any of the bands that we wanted to see came on. However I found two new bands to listen to. Because we didn't get to see the band my friend wanted to see we might be going to see All Time Low this month. I also did not record any of the bands. I did but that was on Snapchat.
I am going to the Escape the Fate concert tomorrow. I hope to have videos up by Sunday night. The Relapse Symphony are releasing a new music video today. I will try to have the review up for that (with a link) tonight. Phantoms also released a new song so I will try to get that up tonight as well.
I will be going tothe Escape the Fate Concert on Halloween. I will have videos from it and I will tell you how the bands sounded live.
One day I was on Tumblr and I got bored. So I went to look at who my followers were. One really stuck out, Joey Phantoms. He had a nice blog so I followed him. Then I noticed that he was in a band. Cool, I am always game for new music. After trying to find a video of the band and couldn't I messaged Joey. He told me that they used to be called Camisado. Cool name so I went looking for music under that name and finally found it. Here is one of the videos there are more. Check them out.
Escape the Fate has had a lot of ups and downs. there has been countless member changes (drummer Robert Ortiz is the only original member). There was also a big fight with Ronnie Radke that lasted years. Now things seem to be looking up for the band. Back in 2014 they toured in Europe and they just completed Warped Tour. The band has made a new album titled Hate Me. Below is the music video for the song Just a Memory. In an Alternative Press interview it was stated that the band has been playing this song during Warped Tour. I was able to hear this song then and I still like it today. I love the message of the song. When I first saw the video I didn't understand why they were standing in piles of dirt. But later it reminded me of land fills/dumps. Now it makes sense. Dumps is where people throw away their pasts. Can't wait for the new stuff.
I found this new band. They are called Phantoms. Overall review, they are really good. More info will come probably tomorrow.
Last night was the APMAs. I got mixed up with the starting times so I missed the red carpet and the first 30 minutes (but there were some technical difficulties). There were some good jokes and performances. I did not like Wezzer. The joke about Motionless in White was really good (about Alex and Jack wearing ore makeup than MIW). Trace Cyrus was annoying and could not understand what a joke was. Whe it came to the awards I was very disappointed. I had voted and I hoped it wasn't going to be like last year when the same bands kept getting all of the awards. For some reason % Seconds of Summer won for best Tumblr fandom. Seriously?!?!?!?! The only thing I can find for them on Tumblr is smut. Every other band has videos, pictures, drawing, mash-ups, etc.. Twenty Pilots desevred that award for than 5sos. And then Jacky Vincent losing to Tony Perry. I know that some people don't like Ronnie but jackie has some real talent and he does his own stuff too. Jacky can really shred. It seemed like at least half of the awards should have gone to another nominee. The philanthrpoic one is an award that anyone could win and it would not matter. They are all good causes. Same with the vocalist. Every single one of them is really good so it didn't matter. Winners are right below.

I had so much fun at Warped. I went with my friend Kallie. We saw The Relapse Symphony, Escape the Fate, The Amity Affliction, As It Is, New Year's Day, Set It off, Miss May I, Asking Alexandria, Icon For Hire, and SayWeCanFly. It was so much fun. I fell down twice during Escape the Fate's set and once during The Amity Affliction because of the crowd surfers. I was hit a few times but nothing too serious or on purpose. We got to meet The Relapse Symphony, SayWeCanFly, and New Year's Day. I want to go back next year.
First is videos from the concert and below them are photos we took throughout the day.
Just wanted to leave these music videos for you here. i also wanted to let you know that I will be going to Warped this year. I will try to have lots of photos and videos for the people who sadly could not make it.
I won't give in by Asking Alexandria:
Asking Alexandria released new music with their new singer Dennis. Dennis used to be in a band called Make Me Famous. He left and started a new band called Down and Dirty who are really good. The rest of the members became band called Ocean's Red, not the great. Some of those guys left and started a new band called Via Vanity. And you know who did the best, Dennis. Back to the song. His voice goes really well with the style of the band. I liked this song and I hoped to see them on Warped to get a better flavor. You only get so much from one song. I love the intro to the song. Add in the opening guitar. Really good stuff so far.
A Perfect lie by the Relapse Symphony:
I don't know if you remember me saying this but The Relapse Symphony is one of my favorite bands. I was curious to see what they were going to come out with because they said that for the previous album it was a bit darker because they were in a darker time. So I did not know what to expect for the new album. I was pleasantly surprised. I don't know how to describe the song. You know when you like something but you don't know how to pout it into words why you like it so you just go because I like it. I feel like that with this song. Good song but do not know what is going on Warped and band stuff. I hope everything gets sorted out. The new album Born to Burn comes out June 23.
Both bands are on Warped Tour. You will need to check and see what dates there are playing to see if they are coming to your city.
Hey I made a remix for a contest so I could get tickets to Warped. It would be really helpful if you vote for the remix called Beaten in Lips. If I am able to go to the concert I will have more videos for you and reviews of lives performances (a lot of them).
Here it the link:
The Relapse Symphony is releasing their second album this year. They released one of the songs,which you also receive when you pre-order the album on YouTube. These guys are one of my favorite bands. I liked their first album and you can see how they grew and evolved as a bad and from the first Ep to their first album. I am interested in seeing what they have in store for us this time around. Good luck boys I wish you the best.
Okay I finally got the videos uploaded. I'm sorry if they are blurry. Enjoy.
The concert was amazing. Kevin's mic was not loud enough but it was still fun. Ghost Town preformed 2 new songs. Kevin kinda fell off the stage and everyone surged forward to touch him. I became quite close with the person in front of me. Then time for Falling in Reverse. The bassist was good. I ended up getting one of his picks. The ended Dying is Your Latest Fashion with an acoustic song. After they "ended" they came back out and played two more songs. I took lots of photos. Some actually turned out okay. I did take some videos they have not been uploaded yet. I hope to do that soon. I loved the energy of the concert. Acoustic is nice but the energy of rock shows are so intoxicating. I want to do this again. Hopefully I can go to Warped. And I could see Sasha again. I meet Sasha at the concert, she was infront of me so I was pushed into her a lot. I met other people including a guy promoting his music( I need to find the card that had the band name on it because they are good), Rob (who was really hot and nice), Nick (a funny guy), and Amber and her sister Brittany. Concerts are the best. Can't wait to go to my next one.
The concert is tonight. I can't wait. Hopefully my friend can take some videos so I can post them on here. Only a few more hours left.
I had made a video where I talk about different bands I want people to know about. I will be uploading it today and I will post a link here and write down the names of all the bands said with a link to a music video for them. The concert is this month. I can't wait for it. 11 days till the concert.
On May 12 I will be going to the Ronnie's 3 Ring Circus in Wallignford, CT. Ghost Town and Falling in Reverse are performing. I might be able to record part of the show. I do not know because as of now I do not have a smartphone. My friend part record a song or two. I will tell you how the concert turned out.
Last night I was able to watch part of the Motionless in White show. It was amazing. Amazingly Yahoo is letting people watch it again.
What is a band that has changed your life? It could have saved you or change your thinking about things. PLease comment and let me know. I want to know what music is so important to you that you would defend the band before you defend yourself.
Set It Off: I love how they worked the video into being a representation of the song. Most music videos are just some background thing to premiere a new song. Plus Cody was HOT in this video. He took his shirt off. Nice.
All Time Low: I liked the song it was good. But the video seems lack luster. It appears to me as just a bunch of kids spraying each other with glow in the dark paint.
Motionless in White: Motionless in White premiered their new music video Break the Cycle from their album Reincarnate. Ghost posted about it on Tumblr that it was on Billboard.com. I put the video down at the bottom. I liked the look of the video. And Devin looks less creepy. The Mary Shaw thing was really creepy. Enjoy the video, it is a bit weird but they always have weird videos.
Falling in Reverse: I really like this album. It is a much needed improvement from Fashionably late. I really hope they don't ever do rap again. I realize that Ronnie wanted to do some rap but he could have just done it in the side project. My favorite song on the album is God if You are Above. I feel like the best song tends to be the one that comes out first. I can't wait for a music video.
Here is a link to listen to the whole album:
I liked this one a whole lot more than I did the last one. The last one was okay but they did over do it on the auto tuning. This one however was a lot better. I am very optimistic that the new album will be better than Fashionably late. That album was a disaster. As of now the new album is looking good. And I do believe that on the 24th the new album will be released.
Here is a link to hear the song:
Here is what I thought briefly of all the things I have meant to review:
Punk Goes Pop 6: In my opinion punk goes pop makes songs that I wouldn't listen to every into something I have on repeat. I have never had a problem with any of the punks. My only complaint is that Turned Down for What is just hard for me to listen to it to begin with.
In This Moment: I really love these guys. Maria is perfection and I have Big Bad Wolf and Sick like Me stuck in my head. The others songs to me aren't that memorable. I would skip over them on my Ipod.
The Guillotine IV (The Final Chapter) by Falling in Reverse: This song does sound a bit more autotuned than God If You Are Above. I still liked it. Jacky gets his guitar solo in. The song is good but great.
Uptown Funk by Against the Current and Set it Off: I love it! I love it! I love it! I didn't understand the hype about this song till I heard this cover. I had heard part of the song on the radio. But I never got the full effect till I listened to Against the Current and Set it Off. I know that Set it Off is good because I heard about them awhile ago and kinda fell in love with them. Now I know of Against the Current and plan to listen to more of them. I put the video below.
In This Moment came out with a new album, Black Widow. I will listen to the whole album and then get back to you.
