This is the second part to my May blog. Here I will be covering some more established bands, and their plans for the upcoming half of 2015. And can you believe half the year is almost gone? Damn. The older you get, the faster time passes it seems. 

The first band of this blog is SECRETS. A San Diego based post hardcore band, who also wrote the track this blog is named for, Maybe Next May, from their sophomore album Fragile Figures. As for their third, well they are currently writing material for that release. They already released an acoustic EP, Renditions, back in April. And as their beginning of their year was packed with tours, I suspect they will be devoting the rest of the year to R&R, and working on their third album. This is one of my favorite bands, and one of the few bands to suffer a major lineup change and come out stronger. I'll get into it in more detail some other time, but for now I suggest you go listen to Dance of the Dead, Infinite Escape, or Fragile Figures. 

Then there's one band that needs no introduction, Bring Me The Horizon. The band has posted pictures of them working on new material, and just goofing off, so a new album can be expected sometime this year, or early next year. They ended their "Sempiternal era" with their outstanding Wembley performance. So what's to come next? Who knows. This band has had its ups and downs. And ten years since their formation, they've come a long way. Their 5th release is sure to be a memorable one, good, bad or otherwise. Songs to listen to include, Seen It All Before, Go to Hell for Heaven's Sake, Shadow Moses, Visions, and Drown. 

The last three bands are all Fearless Record label mates. That's right, I'm talking about Pierce the Veil, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, and Tonight Alive. Each band has their eyes set on a 2015 release for their next album. CNCC have already released two singles for their third album, Get Lost Find Yourself, which I'll be covering later this month when it comes out. Go listen to Taking Chances, Progression of Regression, Playing Dead, and In Friends We Trust. 

PTV had planned to release their 4th album last year, but delayed it due to some new songs being written. So this year looks like the year for some new music from our favorite Mexican bred boys. They're out on Warped Tour this year, so hopefully they'll debut a new single as part of their setlist. Do I even need to suggest songs for this band? Okay, fine. Give King for a Day, Bulls in the Bronx, Hold on til May, Besitos, and Bulletproof Love a listen. Or all of their 2nd or 3rd albums because they're both so damn good. Their debut is just that, a debut. 

And last but not least is Tonight Alive. This album is one I can't wait to hear. After their previous release, I'm not sure how they can possibly top it. I love everything about this band. Their work ethic, their sound, the band itself, and their performances. You can't not watch Jenna and Whak, the lead guitarist, and not want to see more. Those two have such great on stage chemistry. The last time I saw them was on the 2013 Warped Tour, and I still remember every second of it. Songs to hear are The Edge, Listening, Starlight, Lonely Girl, Come Home, Thank You and Goodnight, Amelia, and Breaking and Entering. I could go on and on really, but I'll just leave it with those songs.

So that's the end of this blog. Enjoy the rest of your May, and
Stay devious,

Hey guys, here to do my May blog. This one is going to be covering a bunch of stuff, but no particular albums. The title is taken from the song of the same name by SECRETS. I think the splitting of the blogs is going to be a regular occurrence. I like it this way, I can cover a lot more. 

First band I'm covering is Too Close To Touch. They dropped their debut album, Nerve Endings, in March. It's got collabs between the band and well known artists Tyler "Telle" Smith from The Word Alive, and Kellin Quinn from Sleeping With Sirens. If I had to put a genre label on it, I'd say their sound is alternative, experimental rock with post hardcore tendencies. Some must listen to tracks are The Deep End, Pretty Little Thing, and Hell To Pay feat. Telle Smith

Now onto a band I should have done a blog about a long time ago. PVRIS is one of those amazing bands that seems to come out of no where. They dropped their debut, White Noise, back in October of 2014. And let me say, it's hard to believe that was their debut. It's a well recorded, well written record. Lynn's vocals are a standout. Their live shows are so captivating, I saw them on Warped last year. Go listen to My House, Fire, or St. Patrick. 

Last two bands I'm covering are two labels mates from Outerloop Records. Chasing Safety also released their debut, Season of the Dead, in October. They are a metalcore band, with electronic influences. It's pretty straight forward metalcore, which is expected since the album was their first. Collabs on their debut are with another label mate, Spencer Charnas of ICE NINE KILLS, and the ever talented Garrett Rapp of The Color Morale. Give Far Way, Common Enemies, or Gentleman a listen to get a feel for this band.

Fellow Outerloop band Youth in Revolt, are currently working on their debut. They released their debut EP, Love is a Liar's Game, back in June of 2014. It's a post hardcore must have for fans of SECRETS, Our Last Night, and old SWS, I am eager to hear their full length effort later this year. Their lead singer, True Arahill, has a voice not unlike that of Kellin Quinn, who has given his stamp of approval to the band. It's the same kind of sweet, boyish voice that propelled SWS to the top of the industry. And it doesn't hurt that his name is True, how awesome is that name?

That's it for part one, don't forget to read part two!
Stay devious and have a great May!
