News that'll light up your day!

Good afternoon guys! Today, I have amazing news to share with y'all ^-^ 

To begin with, the pop punk band from Baltimore, All Time Low, released today a new single off their new album 'Future Hearts', with a very special guest: Mark Hoppus from one of the bands which are considered to be founders of pop punk, blink-182! 

The single is called: 'Tidal Waves', and, as I said, it features Mark Hoppus in the vocals, ain't it great? It's amazing that All Time Low have been looking up to blink-182 and now they've got to sing a song with their lead singer, and the result is more than amazing ;) 

Besides, I have just taken a look to the tracklist of the album, and, I really can't wait for April 7th! The album also has a song featuring Joel Madden from other band which has been very popular in the pop punk industry, especially their first albums, Good Charlotte! The album gets better at each song they release, can't wait to listen to it completely! 

Below you can listen to the song 'Tidal Waves' so you can share with me your thoughts of it! 

To continue with, the youtubers which will be in this year's Warped Tour have already been announced, and the youtubers that you'll find there will be: Austin Jones, BryanStars, Damon Fizzy, Johnie Guilbert and Jordan Sweeto! Do you know about them! I know them all, and I'm very happy to know they'll be on this year's  Warped Tour :) 

If you haven't seen none of their videos, check them out on youtube, the search is worth it, I promise! 

To finish with, today, a few minutes ago, the Canadian singer Janick Thibault, from the pop punk band Amasic, has released an acoustic cover of the song 'Kids In The Dark' (originally by All Time Low). 

You should give it a try, because you won't be disappointed. Actually, the cover is really beautiful, but I aware you that you might end up crying (the cover got me crying, honestly). 

However, I consider that a good thing; acoustic covers of that song fit it too well, and Janick's voice suits the song amazingly! Go check it out and let me know what you think ot it ;)

"Take that rage, put it on a page..."

Hello there guys! How are you doing? I hope you're doing well. 

I kinda have this blog forgotten, and I felt like writing on here tonight. I should be sleeping, because lately I don't get proper sleep, but I don't even feel like sleeping. I feel like writing something. 

The other day I was listening to the radio and The Script was playing. Lately I'm getting into that band, and I really like the lyrics of their songs. They're radio friendly, but there are feelings and emotions behind their songs - that's what I appreciate the most in the music. 

It's not only the piano which always adds emotions to the songs, it's the lyrics. I haven't got to listen to many of their songs yet, nevertheless, what I've listened so far was my piece of cake. 

The song by them I'm going to talk about tonight is "if you could see me now". I don't know if you've listened to it or not, but if you haven't, you won't waste your time, I promise. 
The song is pretty sad and beautiful as well. It makes me think. They're dedicating/writing the song to their parents, whom they've lost. I can't go ahead and say I relate to that, because I don't. However, there are parts in which I feel identified. I relate to some parts.

"Music was the home for your pain" okay, do I really need to explain this? Can you guys live without music? I can assure you I can't. To me, music is my best listener, my best advicer and helper. With music, you don't have to fake a smile and say you're fine, it just speaks to you. Isn't it one of the best feelings ever? 

"Take that rage, put in on a page. Take the page to the stage, blow the roof off the place" I think that any artist out there can relate to that quote from the song. That's what artist do. Painters, poets, writers, musicians... they take their rage and turn it into something amazing. 

I relate to that because that's what I do, I focus my "rage" into writing and try to make something good of it. It doesn't always work, however, it mostly does. 

Don't you ever do that? When you're feeling mad, don't you do something creative out of it? It has great results. 

"Would you call me a saint or a sinner? Would you love me a loser or winner?" I want to think that it's normal to ask yourself if people would love your or not if you just became worse... in everything. I don't know about you guys, but I've always been the person who never makes a damn mistake. I'd always try my best and do everything right, never complain or anything. I would always just try to please everyone and not to let anyone down. What's reality? Every time I'd think that I was disappointing everyone and people would love me less. The problem with that is that you always find someone to point out of yourself, something you could improve (or so you think) and all you get is feeling like shit.

You know what? If they don't love you as a loser, they don't deserve to have you when you become a winner. The ones who stay by your side when you're a loser, are worth staying by your side. 

Sometimes I can't stop wondering if someone I haven't seen in ages just came on my way and looked at me, if they'd recognize this person I've become. If they'd smile or be disappointed. I can't get that out of my mind. 

This is it guys, these are my late night thoughts. I hope you liked this post, let me know your thoughts below in the comments and check out the song here:

"Kids In The Dark"

Hi everyone! Yesterday, the pop punk band All Time Low released a music video for their new single called "Kids In The Dark", from their upcoming album 'Future Hearts'!

Have you guys given it a listen? If so, what you think of it? I loved the song! I personally preferred this song than "Something's Gotta Give". 

The lyrics have such an amazing meaning which transmits good vibes and hope for those "kids in the dark". Sometimes the world, everyone, leave you alone and it feels like they leave you in order for you to fail, however, the most awesome thing you can do is to prove them wrong, right? The kids in the dark never surrender, as All Time Low says! 

On the other hand, the music is very catchy, and it really makes you want to jump and dance, besides the good feeling it transmits! 

And, to finish with, the video is pretty rad, I think it shows the spirit of the song, and also what All Time Low's music is usually like. Definitely, this album seems like it's going to be a great one, can't wait to hear more! What about you? Let me know below in the comments :)

Self Harm Awareness Day

Hello guys! As some of you might know, today it's Self Harm Awareness Day, and that's what I'm talking about on here. 

Although lately I've been talking about deep stuff like this one in this blog I created a few months ago: You're Here For Something, this time I decided to write this on here (maybe in that blog as well, I don't know), because since this is like my main blog, more people read this one so I hope to reach more people here. 

Self harm is definitely a topic which contains a lot of stigma and people usually misunderstood it, that's why I'm writing this. 

I've written about this a lot of times before, but still they aren't enough times, because I still listen the same comments from people, the same wrong thoughts. I apologize if I've said the same before, but I don't think I should. I won't stop repeating this until people stop judging self harm and saying the things I hear. 

I know enough about this topic, more than I wish I knew, but I know what I'm saying isn't false. 

Can you just stop considering it's for attention? You know, maybe it is for some people. But it's not the way you think it is. I wouldn't call it "attention seeking". I consider that a mistake. In some cases it's a cry for help. If they're asking for help it's because they need it. And the last thing you should do is not to give that person that help. 

If self harm was "for attention", as you consider it, they wouldn't hide it, and they do. However, even if you can see their cuts, scars, whatever, that's not because they're seeking for attention either. There are some scars that never fade, and nobody should be ashamed of their scars. Honestly, when I see someone with self harm scars, first of all I feel very sorry for them because I believe nobody deserves that; secondly, I hope they haven't done that again; and thirdly, I think that they're really awesome for having the strength of not hiding it, or whatever it's called. 

Self harm is a battle, and the scars are battle scars. It's a hard battle, and everyone who's won it should feel proud of themselves for that. And if you're battling it you should feel proud of yourself for being here and still fighting.

Also, if someone tells you they're self harming, you should take it seriously, because they're trusting you and asking you for your help. Just... if you're not going to help them, don't make it worse either. 

Not everyone can understand self harm, and that's normal. You shouldn't feel bad for not understanding, however, please don't judge it. Don't judge what you can't understand. It won't help anyone. 

Self harm is a very serious issue, and people suffering from it deserve help. 

Let's stop the silence among self harm; people don't deserve to suffer in silence. Speak up, stop the silence. There's people who care about you and who're willing to help you. 

I've said this before and I'll say it again: I'm no therapist, but I promise to listen and try my best to help. I won't judge you, I understand.
