Aidan Bissett – Get Dumped

Aidan Bissett returns with an introspective, headbanging, feel-good anthem for anyone who’s ever been dumped. Listen to Dumped, which he co-produced with Ryan Daly (Fitz and the Tantrums, Adam Lambert, Cyn), HERE. After writing the guitar-driven break-up song, Bissett took to TikTok to explain how the track came together in this tongue-in-cheek clip.

Getting dumped is the worst feeling in the world, but screaming this song will make you feel a whole lot better, says Aidan Bissett. The song is about learning that you are better off on your own and that it’s okay to be alone.

Director Brooke James (Troye Sivan) matches the energy of Bissett’s performance with the vibrant, kinetic official video for Dumped. Holed up in a typical teen bedroom, Bissett thoughtfully unpacks his heartbreak on the verses, then rages with his guitar on the scream-along chorus as the camera spins and zooms with equal frenzy. View the video HERE.

Dumped is the follow-up to So High which Euphoria praised as a certified summer bop this song demands to be played after dark either by the pool or the beach with a fire roaring nearby and drinks being passed around among friends. The Honey Pop declared, Aidan Bissett is an artist that everyone needs to be paying attention to. We have a feeling this is only the beginning of his genius artistry.

Born in Florida, Bissett was raised on classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. He moved to Oregon with his family when he was five and started playing electric guitar in second grade. When his family moved back to Florida, he began teaching himself to produce his own music. Just a year ago, Bissett released his first single,Different, which immediately gained traction online.

As he amassed a sizable following on TikTok, he next put out Worst Girls of All Time, an anti-love-song spiked with moody guitar riffs that landed on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, and More Than Friends. Written, recorded, and produced entirely by Bissett, the songs earned him major buzz and landed the 18-year-old a deal with Capitol Records before he had even graduated from high school. Combined global streams of Bissett’s first three tracks and his Capital debut single, Communication are nearing 11 million.

Rival Sons Announce Fall North American Tour

Rival Sons announce a fall headline tour to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their landmark album, Pressure and Time.

GRAMMY-nominated group Rival Sons will return to the road in North America on the Pressure and Time Tour this fall. The six-week headline run will see the band celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 2011 album, Pressure and Time, by performing the landmark long player live in its entirety. The tour kicks off on September 29 at Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and includes stops at legendary venues such as the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, the Riviera Theater in Chicago, The Warfield in San Francisco, The Wiltern in Los Angeles, and comes to a close on November 13 at House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Most dates of the tour will feature support from Dorothy, with select dates supported by either Reignwolf or Myron Elkins. The official ticket pre-sale launches Wednesday, July 21.

For the first time, Rival Sons will perform their critically acclaimed and cult favorite second full-length album, Pressure & Time, from top to bottom. Upon its arrival in 2011, Pressure and Time garnered the band worldwide recognition and has since amassed over 40 million-plus streams and garnered widespread praise with the BBC affirming it is “simply stuffed with rollicking tunes.”

Last month, Rival Sons lit up Southern California with a two-night livestream event, Rival Sons “Pair of Aces: Live from the historic Catalina Casino on Santa Catalina Island.” They performed their debut LP, Before the Fire [2009], in its entirety on the first night and their self-titled EP, Rival Sons [2010], on the second.

Earlier this year, Rival Sons launched their very own label, Sacred Tongue Recordings, with distribution through Thirty Tigers. The band recently regained the master rights to several of their early releases and will reintroduce them to the world by first remastering their independent full-length debut LP, Before the Fire (2009), and self-titled EP Rival Sons (2010), on all DSPS, CD, and Vinyl – for the first time. They’ve printed up an exclusive run of 1000 copies of both Before the Fire and Rival Sons. Before the Fire will come in an orange splatter variant, while the EP is available in a clear with gold splatter variant. There will also be indie retailer exclusive colorways of each release in translucent orange and crystal clear, respectively. A repressing of Pressure and Time has not been announced but is expected in the coming months.

By looking back, Rival Sons also leap forward again as they continue working on more music and the follow-up to 2019’s Feral Roots, which not only garnered a 2020 GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Rock Album but also yielded a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Performance for the top 10 rock track, Too Bad, and features the #1 rock radio single, Do Your Worst. Produced by multi GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, Rival Sons’ Feral Roots is available now on all streaming platforms.

KNUCKLEBONZ × CALICRAFT — AC/DC BRANDED BEERS

KnuckleBonz® and Calicraft Brewing Company® announces its plans to launch a new music branded beverage line with two AC/DC officially licensed beers: AC/DC® PWR UP Juicy IPA and AC/DC® TNT Double IPA coming to select retail in late summer of 2021.

We are excited to announce this is the first in a series of AC/DC branded beers to be featured in this unique collaboration to bring quality beverages to the music superfan.

Tap Room Release Event:

There will be a tap room release event in the San Francisco Bay Area the weekend of July 23-25, 2021, at the Calicraft headquarters/tap room located at 2700 Mitchell Drive, Walnut Creek, CA. Click HERE for more details.

16 oz Collector’s Edition Cans:

Featured in a 16 oz collector’s edition AC/DC can, this sustainably and specially crafted beer will be available through the Reyes Distribution network that sells to retail partners such as Raley’s, WholeFoods and more.

Availability is slated for mid-September 2021, in select retail outlets throughout CA and AZ. Online ordering will be available as individual states allow.

AC/DC® PWR UP Juicy IPA (6.66%) mixes the tropical hop punch of hazy IPAs with the balance of West Coast IPAs. A blend of Australian Galaxy Hops and American Citra Hops bring massive flavors of bright passionfruit, ripe peaches and juicy mandarin. Inspired by the newest AC/DC album, AC/DC® PWR UP Juicy IPA combines new school vibes with old school cool.

AC/DC® TNT Double IPA (8.2%) is a modern take on a classic style. We blend a mix of Australian Cascade, American Cascade and Simcoe to create a big, bold 8.2% Double IPA. Flavors of fresh cut grapefruit, sweet mango and fresh pine explode out of the glass. Inspired by the first international AC/DC album – AC/DC® TNT Double IPA proves that classics never go out of style.

“We are beyond excited to be collaborating with Calicraft on a new line of craft beers for music superfans,” says Tony Simerman, CEO of KnuckleBonz, Inc. “Many of the bands we have worked with in the Rock Iconz® and 3D Vinyl® Series will be coming to the new beverage line. There’s not a better band than AC/DC to kick this off.”

Calicraft and KnuckleBonz, Inc. were both founded on values of creating true artistry through custom crafted product. This is a special joint effort to create a specialized beverage line for true music enthusiasts. Both companies are honored to have AC/DC participate as THE craft beer to launch this line.

“Over the years, we’ve always stood for collaborations that go beyond beer. We value community and the arts. As music enthusiasts, we could not be more excited to work with our friends at KnuckleBonz and some of the most influential and groundbreaking musicians in history,” says Blaine Landberg, CEO of Calicraft Beverage Co. “Our collaboration is inspired by the band and is designed to be paired with their music. Great music and great beer – there is no better pairing!”

"Best Driving Song" Survey Result image by Rita Azar for use by 360 Magazine

“BEST DRIVING SONG” SURVEY RESULTS

Insurance.com’s survey of the year’s most popular driving songs shows that most people get in touch with their inner disco dancer—with or without bell bottoms and platform shoes—while they’re on the road. “Dancing Queen” by ABBA shimmied its way into the top spot this year, knocking last year’s favorite, “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen, to fourth place.

This one-stop destination for expert advice on health, life and auto insurance asked drivers to name the best and worst road trip tunes, the genres most suited for driving, and the artists they’d rather not admit are on their playlist.

Find the complete survey results and detailed analysis on each category HERE.

Songs topping driving playlists this year include:

  • ABBA – Dancing Queen – 26%
  • Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’ – 25%
  • AC/DC – Highway to Hell – 23%
  • Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody – 23%
  • Carrie Underwood – Jesus Take the Wheel – 20%

Not surprisingly, “Dancing Queen” was most popular among drivers aged 45-54, who may be nostalgic about boogying the night away to the song years ago.

Survey participants also made predictions about what the next great classic road trip songs will be:

  • Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk – 34%
  • Taylor Swift – Shake it off – 27%
  • Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop the Feeling – 26%
  • Florida Georgia Line – Cruise – 25%
  • Billie Eilish – Bad guy – 20%

Although a disco song topped the list, the genre itself did not rank among drivers’ favorites for road trips. Instead, they prefer classic rock (15%), followed by country (12%) and ‘80s music (11%). Those who want to let Jesus take the wheel reported Christian gospel music is their favorite road trip genre (8%). Among the least popular genres—all with 1% popularity—were heavy metal, Latin, K-pop and indie/folk. Punk rock was dead last with 0%.

Survey respondents also listed some tunes and recording artists that they are unlikely to listen to with their windows down. 

Some of the most popular artists in the “guilty pleasures” category are:

  • Britney Spears – 16%
  • Adele – 15%
  • Bon Jovi – 12%
  • Justin Bieber – 12%
  • Celine Dion – 12%

“This is the third year we’ve conducted this light-hearted study,” explains Les Masterson, managing editor for Insurance.com. “It’s an opportunity to remind consumers that we spend a lot of time in our cars and it’s important to have the best possible car insurance coverage in the event that anything goes wrong.”

“While background music can be a nice way to help pass the time, it’s important that people maintain full attention on the road and avoid distracted driving,” Masterson adds.

This survey explores who controls the music during a road trip, how parents handle their children’s music choices, and what solo drivers are most likely to do when their favorite song comes on.

To gather these results, Insurance.com commissioned a survey of 1,000 drivers and asked them to choose the best and worst songs for driving, what song will be the next road-trip favorite, and which artists represent the biggest guilty driving pleasures.
