"God Save Us All"

The release date of Sum 41's new album, 13 Voices, is coming closer and closer. After listening to two tracks off this new album, Fake My Own Death and War, we could guess that not only they were coming back, but also that they were coming back in the music style that we would enjoy about them. 

This time, they've released another song, God Save Us All (Death to POP), that talks about the feeling that gives you rock music - that sense of unity, of sympathy, that feeling that we're all going through the same. 

13 Voices seems to be an awesome album, they haven't got softer, and they keep being as amazing as they used to be. Will the rest of the album be this way? Hope so!

My Digital Escape coming back? Not really.

In case you don't know about My Digital Escape, I'll talk a little about it so you don't feel lost while reading this post. 

My Digital Escape (aka MDE) is a channel that was originally formed by a group of YouTubers who decided to make a collaboration channel. Basically it was formed by: BryanStars, Johnie Guilbert, Alex Dorame, Jeydon Wale, Kyle David Hall, Shannon Taylor, Jordan Sweeto... and also some people who sometimes collaborated. 

However, they broke up like four months ago, the channel remained open, but after the explanation no videos were post.

Until a few days ago, when suddenly a video was uploaded. As far as we've heard, one member of the original collab has bought the channel and re-opened it by themselves. All of this without consent by the other members, which has felt to them like being stabbed in the back - no wonder why. 

They're all upset and disappointed, since it's something they created together, and one person is trying to take advantage of it so unfairly and without even asking them. 

Below you can watch a couple of videos from some of the members, explaining the actual situation:

"Wake Me Up When September Ends"

September started some days ago, and there's always something that comes along with that - thousands of people on twitter with the hashtag #WakeMeUpWhenSeptemberEnds, and with thousands complaining about that fact too.

Why does this happen? 

Wake Me Up When September Ends is a Green Day song, which was written by Billie Joe Armstrong (singer of Green Day) talking about his feelings towards his father's death. Billie was 10, and after the funeral he ran away to his room and lay in bed, when his mother came looking for him, he said: "wake me up when September ends".

Most people who write tweets saying "wake me up when September ends", only say it because it's when school starts, which is why it annoys many people - the truth behind that line is way harder than that and it's not something to joke about.

"Take Cover"

Let's review some music! 

Some days ago, the pop-punk band All Time Low released a brand new single off their future release Straight To DVD II, called Take Cover.

There's been some kind of debate about this song, since some fans of the band haven't actually enjoyed it - and other fans did like the song. Well, as usual, right? I'm going to share my point of view on this song. 

The lyrical content of the song, I really liked it - the meaning was great on my point of view, talking about the left out and stuff related to that. 

The style and instrumental of the song, kind of disappointed me. Even though it's growing on me, it feels too comercial, especially on the chorus. Probably if the chorus was more punk alike, or more similar to the style of the bridges, it would be so much better.

What about you? Which are your thoughts on the song?

Back to School Essentials!

Hello there! September's here, which means that most of you guys reading me are coming back to school in a few days (I guess) - if you haven't yet!

Days like these it's trendy to do a "back to school essentials", and that's exactly what I'm doing - however, I'm doing it in a different way! Musically talking there have to be some back to school essentials, right? ;)

To begin with, the first impression some of us get when coming to school is being scared, isn't it? Especially if you're new, you don't know anybody and you feel lost. Teenagers can actually scare the living shit out of you. This can help along the way!

This song is dedicated to every kid who ever gotpicked last in gym class, to every kid who never had a date to no school dance, to everyone who's ever been called a freak, this is for you!

After all, we're just kids who want to feel like they fit in. High school, and life itslelf can feel like a nightmare if you're all alone... losers today, winners tomorrow anyway! ;)

Also, how can we not talk about how boring high school is? Spending hours sitting in a chair doing stuff you don't want to do with people you don't want to be with most of the time... that's boring to death!

Well, good luck to everyone! Me, I'm not going to high scool since I'm a college guy finally, but I'm still scared to death and figuring out how everything will be. Some music always helps along the way!
