Joyce Manor Play SummerStage

Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage Announces New Benefit Show

Joyce Manor with Turnover, Tigers Jaw, and Prince Daddy & The Hyena

September 23, 2021 in Central Park

Tickets On Sale Now

Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage is excited to announce Southern California-based punk rockers Joyce Manor will perform a ticketed benefit show in Central Park on Thursday, September 23, 2021 with Tigers Jaw, Turnover and Prince Daddy & The Hyena. Tickets are available for purchase ($25 advance / $35 day of) now at City Parks Foundation. Please note that proof of full vaccination must be shown at the door for entry to the show.

Songs From Northern Torrance, the latest album from acclaimed California-based four-piece Joyce Manor is available now. The 10-track compilation is a collection of early material that offers a glimpse into the band’s humble beginnings as an acoustic two-piece. Originally recorded between 2008-2010, many of the tracks have become fan favorites over the years previously existing in a live setting, or on rare CD-Rs sold by the band during their early days on the road.

I Won’t Care How You Remember Me, by the Scranton, Pennsylvania-based band Tigers Jaw, is an ode to living in the present. Tigers Jaw’s sixth albumߞand first for new label home Hopeless Records, finds members Ben Walsh (vocals/guitar), Brianna Collins (vocals/keyboards), Teddy Roberts (drums), and Colin Gorman (bass) at the height of their powers, fusing their collective skills with the synchronicity and energy the band honed over several years of non-stop touring. The result is a back-to-the-basement approach elevated by the unmistakable production of their longtime friend and collaborator Will Yip.

Turnover’s aptly titled new album, Altogether is the first collection the trio has written while living on opposite coasts. The record represents the group’s most collaborative and connected work to date, showcasing the intuitive, near-telepathic relationship frontman Austin Getz has developed over the years with his bandmates. Pop sensibilities inform the writing for the first time, with elements of funk, jazz, lounge, and disco mingling alongside the band’s trademark indie grit and punk energy.

Cosmic Thrill Seekers, the new record from Albany punk rock band Prince Daddy & the Hyena is an odyssey of epic punk, pop, indie, garage rock, and orchestral theatrics. It is a candid, acute documentation of front person Kory Gregory’s cyclical mental health states as told through three acts and 14 songs/chapters.

For the safety of all visitors, staff and artists, SummerStage in Central Park requires all guests to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter the shows at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park. Those who are not able to be vaccinated because of a disability will be provided reasonable accommodation and will be required to wear masks at all times. Children under the age of 12 who are not able to receive the vaccination may accompany their fully vaccinated parent or guardian. All children between the ages of 2 and 12 will be asked to wear masks at all times if they are physically able. Venue capacity may be limited at staff discretion.

SummerStage will accept proof of final Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Moderna or WHO-approved vaccination using the CLEAR app, the NYS Excelsior Pass, NYC Covid Safe app, a physical/photo of CDC vaccination card, or EU digital pass, accompanied by a government-issued photo identification. Guests must show that their final dose of vaccine was received at least 14 days prior to the show date. In addition, masks are required upon entry to the venue and strongly encouraged for all guests for the duration of the performance, as is physical distance. Learn more about acceptable documentation, mask guidelines, and other safety protocols here.

All SummerStage staff will continue to wear masks at all times and enhanced cleaning protocols will remain in place throughout the venue In Central Park, while pre-packaged food and beverage purchases will remain contactless through QR code. We encourage all guests to arrive early in order to prevent lines and crowding at venue entrances. For free SummerStage performances, most shows will be available to livestream at Summerstage’s website, free of charge, if guests are unable to attend in person.

A full list of upcoming SummerStage shows and a digital brochure is available now.

Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage is a proud member of the NYS Outdoor Performing Arts Coalition and the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA).

Alexa Villa – Call Me Crazy

“Bubble Rockstress” Alexa Villa shares her bold new single “Call Me Crazy.” The infectiously catchy pop-rock track is an anthem for the outsiders and dreamers who choose to forge their own paths in life. Stream it HERE.

Villa shares, “I wrote this song about how it feels to always be on the outside. For a long time growing up I didn’t feel like I belonged to any certain group of people. This song is about embracing that and stepping into who you are. I was always the one with my head in the clouds and was always told I live in a fantasyland for having big dreams. I was the loud, wild one with crazy ideas and too much to say. This song for me was a way to overcome that and find my identity. It’s not crazy to dream.”

In support of the single, Villa will perform at El Cid in Los Angeles on August 16. “Call Me Crazy” will be featured on Villa’s upcoming Good Girl EP, which is planned for release in the coming months. 

While her classmates were playing with Barbies, Los Angeles-based Bubble Rockstress Alexa Villa was playing on The Warped Tour. She has opened for acts including The Darkness, Ryan Cabrera, and Mark Ballas & BC Jean of Alexander Jean to name a few and has honed her craft as the sharp, yet charismatic artist she is today.

With influences ranging from Miley Cyrus, Yungblud, 5SOS, Willow Smith and Halsey to Led Zeppelin, Gwen Stefani and Alanis Morissette, the singer/songwriter/classically-trained pianist and producer empowers the listener to embrace their madness and be authentically imperfect, loud and abrupt. She also expresses individuality through fashion and works with various brands to further create her own world.

Thrice – Robot Soft Exorcism

THRICE RELEASE NEW SINGLE ROBOT SOFT EXORCISM

LISTEN NOW

NEW ALBUM HORIZONS/EAST OUT SEPTEMBER 17 VIA EPITAPH RECORDS

PRE-ORDER NOW

California rock band Thrice have shared their newest single Robot Soft Exorcism off their upcoming album, Horizons/East. The song grows and lures listeners in with a unique robotic beat that almost seems to be breathing, creating a living rhythm. The track’s title may sound familiar to those who are aware of David Dark. The American author and teacher coined the term in a twitter thread, exploring a metaphor in an attempt to help us distinguish between harmful and destructive systems and those that inhabit and benefit from them. Thrice’s singer and lyricist Dustin Kensrue picks up the image and breathes life into it throughout the newly released track. Months back Kensrue and Dark spoke at length on the subject, as well as other topics, on Kensrue’s podcast. Fans can listen to Robot Soft Exorcism now at their website.

Horizons/East is available for pre-order now and will be released September 17 digitally and October 8 physically via Epitaph Records. The album exemplifies art as a work of recognition, the human task of perceiving oneself amid details, disasters, and blessings as a relentlessly relational phenomenon among others. In this, Horizons/East is the rare rock album on which interrelatedness is a theme, painting an adventurous and lush landscape mixed by Scott Evans that the band self-produced and recorded at their own New Grass Studio.

The album’s lead single, Scavengers and its accompanying music video are available to watch now. Over a dark and intricate braiding of guitar and drum grooves, the video transports viewers to a world of mystery and disguises that leaves viewers unsure of whom to trust and where to turn.

With the new album, the band addresses, with candor and courage, the fragile and awkward arrangements that pass for civilization, while inviting us to dwell more knowingly within our own lives. Without surrendering any of the energy and hard edge of their previous albums, they’ve given us a profoundly meditative work, which serves as a musical summons to everyday attentiveness.

Horizons/East conveys a palpable sense of danger, determination, and possibility.

Formed in 1998, the Orange County-based four-piece is widely regarded as one of the most innovative rock bands of their generation. Featuring frontman Dustin Kensrue, guitarist Teppei Teranishi, bassist Eddie Breckenridge, and drummer Riley Breckenridge.

Thrice will be touring this fall with special guests Touch, Amor, Jim Ward appearing at select dates only), and Self Defense Family. Tickets and tour information available here.

For updates on Thrice please visit Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Spotify.

Crossing I’s Dotting T’s × Regret Stained Memories

California based alternative rock band Crossing I’s Dotting T’s have released their new single titled “Regret Stained Memories” today from their upcoming debut self-titled EP. Fans can listen to “Regret Stained Memories” now HERE.

On the new single the band shares, “Regret Stained Memories’ is simply a track about not wanting to grow old and look back on life and regret doing things or regret not doing things like a lot of people do.”

“Regret Stained Memories” follows up Crossing I’s Dotting T’s recently released single “Dissatisfied” from the bands upcoming debut self-titled EP due out August 6, 2021 via Golden Robot / Riot Records. Fans can pre-save the EP now HERE.

On Crossing I’s Dotting T’s EP, vocalist / frontman Matt Mucerino shares, “This EP is inspired by the death of my cousin/best friend who left us at the age of 21 due to cancer. “See You At Your Funeral” is specifically about him, and the remaining songs talk of depression, anxiety, questioning society, the inevitability of death, as well as just simply not feeling wanted in certain moments. It is a mixed bag with no one main influence, but we took inspiration from a lot of 90’s alt rock bands like Nirvana, The Pixies, Foo Fighters, Jawbreaker, as well as newer bands such as Joyce Manor, to create a blueprint for what Crossing I’s Dotting T’s will sound like. It is Grunge meets Emo meets Alt-Rock meets Pop-Punk. A quick 4-song EP, there is something for everyone on this.”

Self-proclaimed “emotive-alternative rock,” Crossing I’s Dotting T’s is a raw, original force that morphs different rock genres such as alternative, punk and emo. This combo provides hard-hitting yet catchy songs with big choruses, intended to evoke emotion. Starting in his bedroom and car in Orange County, Matt Mucerino started to write songs until he teamed up with Alex Estrada of Pale Moon Audio (known for his work with Joyce Manor, Touch, Amor and Nails, as well as being the frontman of Silver Snakes). Estrada has helped produce and engineer the Crossing I’s Dotting T’s debut EP. Picking up an endorsement from Orange Amps and Ernie Ball, Crossing I’s and Dotting T’s will be taking the world by storm.

Papa Roach Release Swerve

Papa Roach, the iconic California rock band, is kicking open the door to a new chapter of their career with the release of “Swerve” a high-octane, swagger-packed thrill ride featuring the outspoken frontman of Fever 333, Jason Aalon Butler, and rising LA-based rapper Sueco. The track premiered last night on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter and is available today for streaming HERE.

“This track came at the very end of the writing process for our upcoming album and truly feels like the culmination of years of experimenting with our sound coming back to a new version of Papa Roach,” shares the band’s undeniable frontman Jacoby Shaddix. “We’re kicking off this new chapter of our careers with a next-level track and couldn’t imagine doing it with anyone other than Jason and Sueco.”

The genre-bending banger was produced by Colin “Doc” Brittain and Nick Furlong (All Time Low, A Day To Remember, Avicii) and features the saxophone stylings of co-collaborator Spencer Nezey, showcasing Papa Roach’s bravado at an all-time high.

“This is one of the favorite songs I’ve ever made,” Sueco shares on the collab. “Papa Roach has been an inspiration of mine since I was a kid, so working with them was super dope and a dream come true!”

Butler adds “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- this band has somehow managed to be a legacy AND relevant all at once. So, naturally, when I got the call to hop on this track there was no question. With Sueco doing his thing the track’s got 3 different vibes that all work together. This shit is different and that’s exactly what rock needs. More DIFFERENT Sh*t. Thanks to these modern legends for making sure it happened.”

Along with today’s song release, Papa Roach have also announced that they have entered into a new global distribution and marketing services agreement with ADA Worldwide (WMG’s independent label and artist services arm). Of the partnership, Cat Kreidich, ADA Worldwide President, shares, “We couldn’t be more elated to have Papa Roach in the ADA family. With our talented teams and strong relationships across various territories, we look forward to activating an even wider global audience, as we support them in this new musical chapter.” In addition, Papa Roach have also reactivated their own label, “New Noize Records,” a second incarnation of their early 2000’s label enterprise.

Louyah – I Used to Care

LOUYAH I USED TO CARE OUT NOW

VIRAL VIDEO LAUNCHES THE SONG INTO SPOTIFY’S TOP PLAYLISTS, CURRENTLY #1 ON SPOTIFY VIRAL 50, DEBUTS #34 ON BILLBOARD HOT ROCK/ALTERNATIVE CHART

HEADLINE SOLD OUT SHOW AT HOUSE OF INDEPENDENTS THIS FRIDAY

I Used to Care, the song from Staten Island born singer-songwriter and producer, Louis Attillio Vigorito, better known as Louyah, is currently #1 on Spotify’s Viral Top 50. In addition, the song has been added to some of the platform’s biggest playlists such as Pop Sauce and Summer Breakouts. Today, it debuted at #34 on Billboard’s Hot Rock/Alternative chart.

Listen to I Used To Care here 

In a video that has recently gone viral, Louyah’s friends secretly plotted to have the song played on one of their local stations while they were driving around town one day. His sincere and genuine heartwarming reaction to his friend’s efforts helped the video amass almost 6 million views and put I Used To Care on the radars of listeners, helping it to jump hundreds of thousands of streams and adding 300,000 new followers to Louyah’s Instagram account.

While the video has brought mainstream attention, Louyah has been an up and coming artist for some time. Raised in south New Jersey, 25-year-old Louyah entered the music scene as a vocalist and guitarist of metal bands Premonition and Idle Minds. After six years as a band member, he pursued a solo career.

In 2020 he released his debut EP titled Smile For Me, followed by his EP titled, VIRGO, within the same year through independent record label, Loud Era Records. Rather than specifying on one genre, Louyah’s music incorporates an eclectic mix of sounds fusing pop, rock, rap, and R&B elements.

This Friday, July 23, Louyah will headline a SOLD-OUT show at House Of Independent’s in Asbury Park, NJ.

More new music from Louyah is coming very soon.

Stay updated with Louyah via Soundcloud, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Thrice Announces New Album Horizons/East

Thrice releases new single, Scavengers, in anticipation of their new album, Horizons/East, out this fall.

Returning with their 11th studio album, the dynamic and explorative California-based rock band Thrice announces new album Horizons/East, out September 17 via Epitaph Records on streaming platforms. The album exemplifies art as a work of recognition: the human task of perceiving oneself amid details, disasters, and blessings as a relentlessly relational phenomenon among others. In this, Horizons/East is the rare rock album on which interrelatedness is a theme, painting an adventurous and lush landscape mixed by Scott Evans that the band self-produced and recorded at their own New Grass Studio.

The powerful new single, Scavengers, is out today. Over a dark and intricate braiding of guitar and drum grooves, the lyrics challenge us to discern the issues and information that bonds us versus what disintegrates and destroys. For vocalist Dustin Kensrue, the song is – but also kind of isn’t – a thing of the past. Whether lost in a media diet that is essentially a disinformation pipeline or, relatedly, trapped in fear of a future of eternal conscious pain, Kensrue speaks of “toxic worldviews I once inhabited, and in truth, a lot of people that I love are still in that place.”

To emerge from a global pandemic with a renewed sense of situational awareness, hard-won insight, and a new album is the kind of move we’ve come to expect from Thrice over the last twenty years. With Horizons/East, Kensrue and his bandmates address, with candor and courage, the fragile and awkward arrangements that pass for civilization, while inviting us to dwell more knowingly within our own lives. Without surrendering any of the energy and hard edge of their previous albums, they’ve given us a profoundly meditative work, which serves as a musical summons to everyday attentiveness. 

Horizons/East conveys a palpable sense of danger, determination, and possibility. Some of the writing even began with open-ended challenges that the band laid on themselves like building a song using the quartal chords they found in much of the jazz they loved, or taking the Fibonacci sequence and turning it into a guitar riff.

Thrice seems ever eager to step out into these spaces unknown to them, unsure of where their feet will land, and this new record is no exception. Horizons/East is a soundtrack for deeper dreaming.

WBW better luck next time album art from Hayley Brinkman (Big Picture Media) for use by 360 Magazine

Written By Wolves × Trenton Woodley – Better Luck Next Time

New Zealand’s highest streaming rock band, Written By Wolves, have recruited Trenton Woodley of Hands Like Houses for a reimagined version of “Better Luck Next Time.” Stream here.

The new single takes a tongue-in-cheek look at one of the only inevitable facts of life: no matter what we do, no one gets out alive. Woodley not only contributed vocals, but also co-produced/mixed the track and starred in the corresponding music video directed by Written By Wolves guitarist, Bahador Borhani.

“Better Luck Next Time” is the second single from Written By Wolves’ upcoming EP, The Collab Project, due out on September 17 (self-release). The 5-track EP is a collection of re-imagined collaborations of tracks from their debut album Secrets, released in late 2019. In addition to Woodley, Kellin Quinn (Sleeping With Sirens), Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.) and others have collaborated on tracks for the EP.

Written By Wolves vocalist Michael Murphy shares, “The Collab Project is an on-going initiative to try and spread awareness, and to remind our fans and our followers, that no matter what they are going through, no matter what mental health struggles or demons they are going through right now, they don’t have to do it alone and they don’t have to deal with it on their own.” He adds, “The aim is to help normalize talking about our mental health issues and to help to breakdown the stigma attached to mental health.” Watch the band’s video explanation of The Collab Project here.

Written By Wolves are a fresh and progressive cinematic rock band and one of the most exciting new rock acts to come from New Zealand in recent years. Renowned for their highly energetic live show, the band have already shared the stage with international heavyweights such as Machine Gun Kelly, Limp Bizkit, Pendulum, Sublime With Rome, Suicidal Tendencies, We The Kings and Four Year Strong, to name just a few. Since forming in 2014, the band has amassed over 310,000 monthly listeners and more than 36 million streams on Spotify, as well as over 100,000 subscribers and 46 millions views on YouTube.

FIIRE – Lotus Wings

Alternative pop artist, FIIRE, premieres her debut single, “Lotus Wings.” The ultra-moody and atmospheric track was co-written and produced by Ely Rise (Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Childish Gambino) and displays FIIRE’s unique, whimsical flair.

“This song came to me in a vision,” shares FIIRE. “It’s about my personal hero’s journey, the duality we all face as humans, and the power we have to choose our own realities.”

The song has a solid mid-tempo and a hard-hitting pop beat and altered vocals almost reminiscent of an earlier generation of pop music but in the best way. It’s strange, catchy and beautiful. 

Stream HERE.

About FIIRE

Born and raised in Thousand Oaks, California, FIIRE spent her childhood training in classical ballet while being homeschooled. Eventually, she was accepted into her dream ballet academy in New York City, and moved across the country alone at age 16 to attend. However, after an intense year of training, FIIRE fractured her legs and could no longer physically perform.

Ashamed, embarrassed and devastated, FIIRE returned to California where she began writing songs about the loss of her identity. Growing into the realization that music was her true calling, she continued to focus on her singing and writing. Struggling with depression and substance abuse, her physical health started to deteriorate. All the pain she was going through would eventually come out in her lyrics. It was in the midst of her deepest pain that she had a spiritual awakening and her true essence revealed itself. She changed her entire life, physically, mentally and spiritually, figuring out how to transform her darkness into light. She was then given the name FIIRE, for she is here to ignite the spark and illuminate the path for inner transformation of others through her music.
