    It’s been a massive week for new releases and videos, so let’s do a bit of recap:

    Taking Back Sunday‘s heartbreaking new single, Flicker, Fade got a new music video to cap off the preorder and tour news lately. Just another powerful reminder of why the Long Island giant has been around for so long.

    TBS co-headliners The Used have a new music video for Cry. It’s rippin’. Preorders for ‘Imaginary Enemy’ are up on the band’s website.

    Bayside put out a pop punktastic new song, Time Has Come, off of the upcoming album ‘Cult’, out 2/18.

    In keeping with the pop punk, Neck Deep put up a video commemorating their release shows. This little band is the next big thing from across the pond. Get on board now.

    Tegan And Sara have a new song for the upcoming film Endless Love, a beautiful piece titled Don’t Find Another Love. Give it some time to build up, it’s worth it. Take a listen on the sisters’ website.

    The Gaslight Anthem is celebrating the release of their new demos/unreleased tracks album, ‘The B-Sides’. Here’s one titled She Loves You, up on SoundCloud.

    This is a fun one, Brooklyn’s Bear Hands has a new music video for Agora, a real party viber.

    You Me At Six has made ‘Cavalier Youth’, their brand new record, available for streaming on Spotify.

    Taking a turn for the harder stuff, Chiodos is back with Craig Owens at the helm, blasting a rifftastic number titled (actually though) Ole Fishlips Is Dead Now. The song itself is pretty sick, and sees the band back on the ‘ole’ Chiodos grind. The band’s new album, ‘Devil’, will be out 4/1.

    We Came As Romans posted a new live video out for Ghosts. Very cool.

    NJ band Palisades put out a new live video for High & Low, and it’s not bad. Not the first band to mix EDM jams with hard rock, but with Issues-esque vocals, it’s definitely worth a listen.

    Speaking of Issues, Rise Records’ golden boys, the new song Never Lose Your Flames has a lyric video that’s well worth watching. Tyler Carter and Michael Bohn never cease to amaze.

    Alive Like Me, one of Rise Records’ newest bands, has a lyric video for Start Again. A lot of SWS sounding bands coming up.

    Shifting back toward the pop and pop rock: remember the Kendrick Lamar/Imagine Dragons collaboration that was the talk of the Grammys? Here’s the studio version on SoundCloud.

    FINALLY, and I’m so glad we caught this just in time, Paramore‘s music video for Ain’t It Fun JUST went live. They wanted to break a few world records. Watch what happens:

    That’s it for now. Until next time!
