Blink-182 have released “Wildfire”, which is described by the band as follows: “Think of your favorite song from Enema of the State. Now think of your favorite song from California. Now imagine them falling in love and starting a family of their own.

SXSW is on as of today. It’s a week and a half of concerts, conferences and all kinds of good stuff in Austin, Texas. If you’re going you’re lucky – including because warm weather = good!
Lese Majesty have a new single called “Seeking Escape”. It’s the latest off Cold Reason for Change, their sophomore EP which comes out on Friday. The song deals with addiction: “Like many of us, I have seen loved ones struggle with addiction. I often feel guilty as I work so much that I am not often here for them…this song is one small aspect of the story where I put myself in someone else’s shoes. One of my good friends told me to read ‘Chasing The Scream’, which helped me navigate some kind of understanding of the causes of addiction rather than condemning the symptoms. So there are reflections of Johann Hari’s book in this song as well as my attempt to move forward and find a solution.” Get MOAR deets about the upcoming release via TPS’ chat with the band!
