Sometimes things don’t work in your favor no matter how badly you want them too, causing life to go in vicious circles. Promise To Myself is a Pop-Punk Alternative band from Phoenix, AZ. Their fun and creative energy can be described as if Fall Out Boy, All Time Low, and Waterparks had a fight to the death in a game of dodgeball, and the winner end up being Big Time Rush.  Inspired by “Dial Tones” from As It Is; the band was formed by Karl Nagy (Lead Vocals and Bass), Brad Stockton (Lead Guitar), Zack Bruge (Rhythm Guitar and Backup Vocals), and Tony Galvan (Drums). Promise To Myself takes an active role in supporting their community, such as the RnR Memorial Fund, where they take ‘RnR’ stickers to all of their shows and created a special ‘t-shirt’ where the proceeds go towards the fund. They even documented on Instagram taking ‘Jerome the Gnome’ on their travels to Austin during SXSW...

Break The Robot Drops Heavenly Music Video For ‘Life Goes On’

Break The Robot Drops Heavenly Music Video For ‘Life Goes On’

Break The Robot just dropped a breathtaking new music video featuring everyone’s favorite robot- and this time he has wings! Follow the story of Drake as he wander the desert, meets a familiar angel, and comes to terms with how no matter what, Life Goes On. Check out the video:   Description: Hot off the release of their debut album, “Timing is Everything”, Break the Robot documents the mountainous journey of the band’s title character, Drake the Robot, a real lively steampunk robot in the ‘Break the Robot’ universe. Life Goes On is an existential dive into the lonely mind of Drake the Robot. With no master and no mission, he is compelled only by mystical signs and angelic siren calls, pulling him further and further into the wilderness. Break The Robot’s hard-hitting lyrics and powerful melodies act as a passionate backdrop for our heroic, soul-searching man-of-metal. “But it’s in this song, someday, maybe, baby, life goes on”; draws parallels between Drake’s hardships and our own.  His perilous journey makes us all question our own existence and struggles, bringing hope to the modern world, as even a robot… can earn his wings....
The Runner Up Releases Self-Titled EP

The Runner Up Releases Self-Titled EP

Our boys in The Runner Up recently just released their self-titled EP.  If you’re looking for the next soundtrack to the summer, then look no further. Check out the EP here: http://bit.ly/TheRunnerUpEP Song by Song bio: Over It This was the first song we ever played together. I wrote it on an acoustic guitar while listening to a lot of Gnarls Barkley and Justin Timberlake so it originally had this funky “Senorita” style guitar intro but it evolved into more of an R&B synth wave thing but I love the chord progression. Lyrically it’s about when I moved from one town to another and the social dynamics I found with it, perhaps not feeling quite fancy enough or fucking “cool” enough to fit in with these new social circles, but then ultimately finding that it’s just bullshit in your head and to just chill the fuck out.   Pillz Our old guitar player came over with this folky, ascending, and descending riff one day. He could pull a riff out his butt but then they’d usually go to another planet after that. So I worked with the riff to keep it on track, coming up with other riffs and directions that would make sense for this kind of schizophrenic piece. I had never worked with any kind of folk music before but I knew I could find a way to make it pop with energy to essentially match our personality on stage. Lyrically it’s pretty straight forward, you have a crazy significant other or just relationship that isn’t working out, and instead of breaking it off right away you be...
