We've been waiting on the follow-up to Dangerkids' 2013 debut Collapse for a long time, and as time went on, things were starting to seem dire for the band. 2017's about to change all of that up.
The band's long-awaited Blacklist_ is due out on January 27, 2017 via Paid Vacation Records. The band has been working on material for nearly two years now, revealing the title of the record all the way back in 2015. It seems the band has parted ways with former record label Rise Records, which may be the reason why.
The band has released another single for the record, the eponymous single 'Blacklist_.' This song feels more at home with the band's core sound than the lead single 'Things Could Be Different,' which had a stronger and more electronically rooted vibe. Both songs show a growth of the band's sound, however, and leave Blacklist_ looking very promising.
Here's the album art and tracklist; both new tracks the band has played throughout 2016 ('Blacklist_' and 'Kill Everything') are found on it:
- Kill Everything
- Inside Out
- Crawl Your Way Out
- Things Could Be Different
- Ghost In The Walls
- Nothing Worth Saving
- Summoner's Rift
- Glass On Water
- Invincible Summer
The new single 'Blacklist_' can be heard below:

English post-hardcore outfit Architects has lost on of it's founding members. Guitarist Tom Searle has passed away after a three-year battle with cancer. He was 28.
The band was amidst their tour for their new record All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, released earlier this year. The album has been critically acclaimed and is revered as the band's best record so far. Several tour dates have were cancelled earlier on the cycle, including European and U.S. Headlining appearances, as a result of Searle's illness.
A statement posted on Facebook by twin brother and bandmate Dan Searle reads:
The band has started a donation page for the hospice that cared for Tom through his illness, the Marlets Hospice. You can donate here.
Architects will continue the tour without Tom in September when they head to Australia; see all of their tour dates here. A fill-in guitarist has not yet been announced. Read our review for All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, too - it's one of our favorite records of the year.
Rest in peace, Tom Searle.
Post-hardcore rockers Of Mice & Men have returned with a brand new single and details of a new album! The band unveiled the unsettling video for 'Pain' earlier today, featuring the band performing alongside unsettling images of dancers.
With the release of a single, the band also announced the release of the fourth record, Cold World, due for release on September 9. The band has spent a good portion of the last year recording the record, which came with some struggle. Austin Carlile, the band's heavy vocalist, faced complications with the rare tissue disorder Marfan's syndrome, as well as electrocution injuries in the studio.
Cold World was produced by David Bendeth, who also worked with the band on their chart-topping 2014 effort Restoring Force, and will be released via Rise Records. The tracklist is as follows:
- Game Of War
- The Lie
- Like A Ghost
- The Hunger
- Down The Road
Fans can get a download of the single by preordering the album here, with multiple options of packages and formats available. The song will likely be a part of the band's set on their upcoming tour with Slipknot and Marilyn Manson, as well.
