First month of 2015 is almost over, how has shit been going? Me, eh it's not bad, not good. Kinda boring actually. But I'm not complaining. I'll take boring over stressful. This month's "jams" are all about the new year. Artists have been dropping statements, singles, even complete albums at the turn of the new year. I'm going to split this entry in two parts since I'm kinda late on this one, and there's a lot to cover. 

In part 1 I mentioned two bands you may or may not have heard of (Fall Out Boy, All Time Low), so here's another you may or may not have come across in reading. A little group known as Sleeping with Sirens have announced the release date for their upcoming fourth album, Madness. I'm not going to waste any time about SWS, but just say I'm not sure how excited I should be for this album after their previous release. Let's just say it was less than interesting. The most interesting track, well that's hard to pick when they're all kinda stinky. I recommend you listen to previous album tracks like Do It Now, Remember It Later, With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear, or their amazing acoustic EP "If You Were A Movie, This Would Be Your Soundtrack."

Now for some bands that aren't as "stale". Tonight Alive, one of my favorite bands, is planning on a third album this year. And after revisiting their sophomore work, The Other Side, I can't wait. I'll admit, at first it took me a few listens to really get into it, but once I did I couldn't stop playing it. If you need to compare it to anything, I'd say Paramore's first two albums are pretty close. It's definitely a classic "emo-pop", "alternative rock" album for the books. 

And then there's Chunk! No Captain Chunk!, who have been a bit of a laughing stock in the music world for their "easycore" sound. But I have hope after their sophomore release, Pardon My French (They're a French band so there's a bit of irony for you). There's no doubt the French boys are talented, and have the capability to do something a bit more refined and matured. The only question is what will the finished product sound like. 

And I'd be stupid to no at least mention Pierce the Veil and their upcoming fourth album. Let's face it, those guys don't need any explanation. Their third album, Collide with the Sky, was pure magic. Their collabs were perfect, Tangled in the Great Escape with Jason from letlive, Hold on Till May with Lindsey Stamely, and the amazing King for a Day with Kellin of the previously mentioned SWS. I could go on and on, but instead I suggest you go listen to the album. 

Anyways, thanks for reading, feel free to comment, etc, etc, etc. Stay devious and let me know if there's a band or artist I should listen to. I'm always looking for new music to jam to.

Any FOB (Fall Out Boy for you newbies) fans reading this? Yes, no? Well I can't say that I myself an a fan. I like the "classic hits", Dance Dance Dance, Thnks fr the Mmrs, Sugar We're Going Down, I Don't Care, This Ain't A Scene..., but I've never bothered to listen to anything else. Well my "Listen Later" playlist just got longer with the release of American Psycho/American Beauty. It's not a priority for me, though I have been told this album is the best so far. I wasn't a big fan of Save Rock and Roll, well what I did listen to that is. I don't know, I'm not going to make any definitive judgments until I listen to more of their music.

And as for other well established artists with new albums, All Time Low released their new single "Something's Gotta Give" for their upcoming album Future Hearts, set to be released April 7. Now that is something I'm really stocked for. It's catchy, and still retains ATL's signature. Plus the music video is hilariously random and fun, which is what music videos for pop punk bands should be. No filled with half naked people making out (I am NOT a 5sos fan if you couldn't tell).

If you're new to ATL, I would suggest listening to one of their most popular tracks "Weightless" or a staple song at live shows "Dear Maria Count Me In". Both awesome, both classic pop punk tracks. FH will be their 6th album, matching their heroes blink-182 in terms of how many albums they've released since their formation. Their discography includes The Party Scene, So Wrong It's Right, Nothing Personal, Dirty Work, Don't Panic, and of course Future Hearts

That's all for part 1, check out part 2 for more if you're still interested, or if you've bothered to read to this point. 
Stay devious,
