    Posted on by

    A TON of important records and singles are hitting the Internet this week, including a handful of big teasers and preorder sets. Let’s take a gander at what the world is making:

    First up, Of Mice & Men have a freelegal full album stream for ‘Restoring Force’ on iTunes Radio. Get a jump on this or wait ’til it formally drops 1/28. Preorder bundles are up on Impericon.

    In keeping with the harder hitting stuff, We Came As Romans have an HD live video of Hope. Just more proof that David Stephens is an unstoppable live screamer and co-frontman. Check it below:

    Comeback Kid is teasing a new record, ‘Die Knowing’. Watch the teaser vid below and get preorder information up on YouTube!

    Terror has a new lyric/music video for Hard Lessons, a knuckle-dragging chugfest. Get it:

    Toronto’s next big thing, PUP, posted a cover of My Shadow, a tribute to the late and great Jay Reatard. Scoop it up on SoundCloud, it’s a rager! Also  important: PUP will be leveling the PNW later this year, with dates in Vancouver BC 3/3, Waid’s in Seattle 3/4, and Portland 3/5!

    This one’s big: Manchester Orchestra posted a brand new single, the fuzzrocious Top Notch. Take a listen below, download it freelegally on the band’s website, and preorder the record, ‘Cope’, due out 4/1. These guys will do a national tour supporting the record when the time comes, and will pass through Spokane 4/28, Seattle 4/29, and Portland 4/30.

    The Used announced their new record ‘Imaginary Enemy’ recently, and have posted a teaser for Cry, which you can watch on Instagram.

    Philly upstarts Modern Baseball posted a first single earlier this month, titled Rock Bottom, and they’re following up with a stompin’ singalong titled Charlie Black. Take a listen, and catch this exciting new act on The Greatest Generation Tour with The Wonder Years, up in Seattle 3/19!

    Pure Noise picked up a new act that everyone’s talking about, a South Carolina band named Brigades. Their first song, The Writing On The Wall, is up on YouTube for streaming, and the band is shooting for a Spring EP release titled ‘Crocodile Tears’.

    The Sheds posted a video for their rippin’ song Writer’s Block, which is actually a lot of fun. I suspect I’ll be listening to this Californian quartet a lot more.

    Taking a turn into the softer stuff, Beck posted a new song titled Blue Moon, a lush and beautiful dream. Hear it for yourself.

    Since we (I) care about everything Ellie Goulding, YouTube sweetheart Kina Grannis teamed up with her sisters Misa and Emi to release this gorgeous acoustic cover of Burn.

    Quilt‘s dreamy sophomore album ‘Held In Splendor’ is up for preview freelegally on NPR’s First Listen!

    Tay Jardine and the We Are The In Crowd crew posted a new song titled Long Live The Kids.

    Finally, let’s close out with a fun one: Michigan-based quintet Stepdad posted a new single titled Running (Does That Mean You Care?) on SoundCloud, a pretty flawless mix of indie- and electro- pop. Very listenable.
