LoveHateHero’s new album “America Underwater” hit stores today and fans can stream it in its entirety on AOL! Check it out here: here. You can purchase “America Underwater” on iTunes here.

LoveHateHero’s third full length release for Ferret Music focuses more on its well-developed vocal melodies and cleanly polished hooks, clearly showing a band that has matured and hit its stride. If storming the Internet with 10 brand new anthems isn’t enough, LoveHateHero has also released its brand new video for the title track off of America Underwater. Shot in Lake Mohave, AZ this past summer, the clip was directed by Spence Nicholson (Hollywood Undead, Hit the Lights, The Devil Wears Prada) and can be viewed online here.

The Los Angeles rockers have announced they will join Eyes Set To Kill’s previously announced Revolver Magazine sponsored headlining tour starting October 23 in Orland Park, IL.

In each market, Eyes Set To Kill’s label, BreakSilence Recordings and Revolver Magazine will give two local opening acts the chance to win a recording contract.

The Sci Fly Guy. This is the perfect description for songwriter, rapper, and producer Harold “Future” Simmons. The only way to adequately describe his music is… well… “Futuristic”. His influences range from N.E.R.D.’s perfected mix between live instrumentation and programmed beats, Outkast’s level of creativity and growth that expands the former boundaries of Hip Hop, to the heavy synthesized, electronic sound of the Sri-Lankan superstar M.I.A. 

Future’s latest project, “The Sci Fly EP”, which shows the rapper’s lyrical and musical maturity, has landed him prime placement in the hip-hop world opening up for acts such as Kanye West, Wale, and Little Brother.

Currently, Future has been working hard on The Overnight Mixtape Series (Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Vol. 3). The hip-hop artist records an entire EP overnight and releases it the following morning for all of his fans to listen.

Head over to Future’s MySpace page to check out upcoming tour dates and to pick up The Overnight Mixtape Series as well as The Sci-Fly EP for free.

Jack’s Mannequin frontman Andrew McMahon has announced that all theatrical screenings of his upcoming film Dear Jack will be followed with an in-person Q&A with Andrew himself, Corey Moss and Josh Morrisroe who directed the film.

Andrew writes, “We’ve begun solidifying the schedule for the theatrical releases of the Dear Jack documentary during the fall acoustic tour. I’m excited to announce that myself along with filmmakers Corey Moss and Josh Morrisroe, who brought Dear Jack to life, will be in attendance for a Question & Answer session following the screenings! My guess is that the Q&A’s will be roughly a half hour in length, directly following the screenings, and will be centered around the topics of the film and what went into its creation. We look forward to seeing you out!”

The DVD of Dear Jack — a deeply personal documentary made by Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate frontman Andrew McMahon chronicles the year that McMahon, then 22, spent battling acute lymphoma leukemia while trying to release Jack’s Mannequin’s 2005 debut album Everything in Transit. Dear Jack is a breathtakingly emotional film as well as a testament to family, friends and, perhaps more than anyone will ever know, a love of making music.

    Check out our interview with Andrew McMahon from a little while ago here.

Three theatrical screenings of Dear Jack will also be held in October-

Landmark Theater in Chicago on October 8th
BUY TICKETS (Make sure to select 10/8)

IFC Theater in New York City on October 22nd

CRASH LOVE, the long awaited and much anticipated, album from AFI has finally hit store shelves and digital outlets nationwide. Featuring the single “Medicate,” CRASH LOVE boasts an obvious return to the band’s rock roots with a sound that “leverages the best elements of its past albums, including the rhythm of punk, the fist pumping anthem sing-a-longs, hard-core intensity, and epic song constructions with big sweeping transitions and a huge sound” (Culture Bully). CRASH LOVE has also been touted by press as being “packed with… exuberance, mystery and drama” (Alternative Press), with a feel “larger in scope than its predecessors” (FEARnet) and possessing a “couple of AFI classics-in-waiting” (Sputnik Music) and that, “ultimately another highlight in a discography that’s as consistent as it is expansive” (Billboard). Kerrang! also chimed in with a sentiment sure to be echoed by AFI fans, “Maybe this time around AFI will get the recognition they deserve.”

Marking the release, Shockhound.com has made the album available for purchase for $6.99, only on 9/29. Fans can also purchase a deluxe version of the album through iTunes that comes packed with bonus songs, video content, written and spoken material from the band, as well as other exclusive pieces making for a unique interactive experience.
