Liven Up Your Day With Bloody Your Hands

New York based Bloody Your Hands might be one of the tightest bands instrumentally I’ve heard in quite awhile. As a three piece, it’s crazy that these guys can produce such a loud and intricate sound. New single, “Wandering Home”, is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. The pace is intense, the timing is impeccable, and the breakdowns offer a nice emotional break from the ferocity.

New album Monsters Never Die is out on July 7th.

WAAX Will Get You Through Hump Day

As I continue to push songs with some energy and power behind them, I offer you today this new single entitled “Wild & Weak” from Brisbane based group WAAX. It’s easy to get hooked on this track after listening for a short few seconds.

Nice Indie Rock From Vassals

I’m sure you’ll also find that the song will offer something new to like with each and every listen. Well done doods.

Banger From Happy Diving

unnamed (3)As many of us are likely struggling to get moving today after too much fun yesterday, this new single from San Francisco’s Happy Diving might be the perfect hangover cure. Yeah “Holy Ground” may start off as a sort of slacker rock tune, but hold tight, the true wall of guitars comes in pretty quick. The meandering feel, with that slow build into awesomeness is sure to perk up your Tuesday. It’s done it for me.

Electric Soul Unity will drop on August 19th via Topshelf Records.

Edgy Rocker From Lumps

1453320_1121735791169747_5674497852106917664_nBrooklyn rock n roll band Lumps make a brand of rock music self-described as sick party rock. If you check out their latest single “Sleep Tight” below, I think you will likely agree with that self assessment. I’m personally reminded of a band like Wavves with just a bit of edge to their rock n roll sound. Welcome to the party Lumps.

Lumps will release a new tape entitled Curses June 24th via King Pizza Records. (pre-order here)

Single Premiere: Apartment 3

IMG_2896After enjoying their last single “Winter is Over” for the last month or so, I was more than excited to share another new track from Vermont based band Apartment 3 today. Entitled, “Sunshine”, the latest track from the band offers some serious bite to it. What does that mean exactly? Well, from the second you hit play, your ears will be blasted with a wall of guitars and a heaviness best described in my own words as “hell yeah”. As Nathan mentioned earlier, this is a band sure to be on the rise moving forward. We’ll drop more details on future releases as we receive them.

More From Bird of Youth

This new song entitled “Bitter Filth” is yet another tune from the band that is sure to up your energy levels and make even the lamest person want to rock. Seriously, I don’t see how anyone could deny the infectious sound of this track. Go ahead, deny it. I dare you.
