It has been a busy summer for Meg & Dia! The band has been playing to huge crowds as one of the main stage performers on Warped Tour 07. With an army of new fans supporting them, it looks like the young band will be making the inside of a tour bus their home for the rest of the year. After the Warped Tour concludes in late August, they?ll be joining up with The Almost for a string of dates in early September. October will find them supporting Sire Records recording artist The Spill Canvas with Idiot Pilot on select dates. Meg & Dia recently released their Lex Halaby (Bad Religion, Hoobastank) directed video for the single ?Roses.?

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Eyes Set To Kill

Hometown: Chandler, AZ
Genre: Screamo, Rock, Acoustic
Sounds like: Meg & Dia, A Skylit Drive
Current Album: When Silence Is Broken The Night Is Torn
Myspace: myspace.com/eyessettokilll
Official Site:

It’s rare that I come by a band that immediately catches my attention. Eyes Set To Kill has done that for me. They’ve crossed so many popular music styles today that makes it their own. Gut tearing screams woven delicately with an angel’s voice couldn’t have sounded any better. Eyes Set To Kill has it. I recently found out that their lead vocalist, Lindsay, has left the band on personal matters. The band has started a search process for a new vocalist. I’m not sure how this is going to effect the quickly developing band. We can only wait and see. Either way they’re all talented musicians and I can’t wait to see where they could go. Check out tracks Darling and Liar In The Glass.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY: Valencia The Space Between

In 1977 today, the BBC announced a ban on the new Sex Pistols single ‘God Save The Queen’ saying its, “in gross bad taste”. And the IBA issued a warning to all radio stations saying the playing the single would be in breach of Section 4:1:A of the Broadcasting act. The single reached No.2 on the UK chart. A year before the Sex Pistols ban, The Who gave themselves a place in the Guinness book of Records as the loudest performance of a rock band at 120 decibels, when they played at Charlton Athletic Football ground.

Last November

Hometown: Atlanta, GA
Genre: Rock, Punk, Alternative
Sounds like: Valencia, Bedlight For Blueeyes
Current Album: All the Gory Details

Last November’s songs are full of passion and heart. They give you that warm fuzzy feeling. Their debut album All The Gory Details has been out for over a year now and a second album is in the works. You can hear a new unreleased song on their myspace. Some of my favorite songs include Aquaphobia, Addicted To You, and Make-Believe. Another great album for summer driving.
