Journey – You Got the Best of Me

As one of the world’s most beloved rock bands, Journey continues to create new music and thrill audiences night after night in sold-out arenas worldwide in conjunction with AEG as their promoter.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018, Journey have 25 gold and platinum albums, including the fifteen-million selling Greatest Hits collection, with total sales adding up to 80 million records around the world. 

Emerging from the pandemic with a supercharged new studio line-up, the members of Journey unleashed the first single “You Got The Best Of Me” off their forthcoming studio album, Freedom—due out July 8 via BMG—is available for pre-order HERE

“You Got The Best Of Me” will be followed this summer by an epic, fifteen-track set of new original songs that brings back the grand scale of the group’s greatest moments, along with updated and bold new directions and sounds. 

“I wanted kind of a punky rendition of ‘Any Way You Want It'”, says the group’s founding member, guitarist, songwriter, and producer Neal Schon about the single. “I usually don’t go in saying I’m going to look for something like that, but then it just came to me, like “Wheel in the Sky” did years ago. It just kind of flew out of my mouth.”

While the forthcoming album was made with visions of arena and stadium stages, it started from humble beginnings. In 2020, as COVID swept the globe, Schon was stuck at home like the rest of us. “During the pandemic, there wasn’t much to do,” he says. “I spent a lot of time in my little studio at home, learning how to play keyboards and looping. Some of those ideas ended up being songs. So it kind of came out of nowhere.”

Listen to the new single, “You Got the Best of Me,” HERE.

As the band’s legend continues to grow larger and their touring gets bigger, Freedom will be the first album of new material to be released in eleven years, since 2011’s Eclipse, and in addition to long time keyboard player and primary lyricist Jonathan Cain and vocalist Arnel Pineda, one more member was recruited for the upcoming album—bassist extraordinaire Randy Jackson, who had played on Journey’s 1986 album Raised on Radio.

They will also be going on a full North American tour. For ticket info, click HERE. Journey and AEG have announced four exclusive Las Vegas show dates featuring special symphony orchestra performances at the new, state-of-the-art Resorts World Theatre.

Machine Gun Kelly – lockdown sessions

Ahead of his upcoming album mainstream sellout (Bad Boy/Interscope Records) on March 25, rock dynamo Machine Gun Kelly serves up a new EP, lockdown sessions, out now. The EP bundles three viral hit tracks that showcase the versatility behind one of the era’s most impactful crossover hitmakers.

The three-pack includes “roll the windows up,” a fan-favorite track previously known as “smoke and drive.” The update comes with more than a name change, though. MGK tacked on a new verse and shot a music video for the song, featuring the superstar and his drummer, Rook, smoking in a car in a no-frills, straightforward clip that captures the homegrown essence of a project strictly for the fans. Watch the full clip HERE.

The EP kicks off what’s sure to be a whirlwind month for MGK, whose new song, “ay!” arrives this Friday, March 4. Audiences caught a sneak preview of it during his Feb. 24 performance on CBS’ The Late Late Show With James Corden in a medley of “maybe,” “ay!” and current single “emo girl,” with WILLOW. The latter continues to build on its scorching start, with over 30 million streams and racing to the top 25 on alternative radio. All three songs will appear on MGK’s sixth studio album, mainstream sellout, coming March 25. Pre-order the new album HERE.

MGK has dominated the live space in the past month by performing on some of sports’ biggest stages, beginning with a headlining slot at the 2022 NHL All-Star Game in Las Vegas, where delivered a scintillating halftime performance for hockey and rock enthusiasts. And in the lead-up to this year’s Super Bowl, he and Halsey united for a blockbuster teamup for a Bud Light sponsored show at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.

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.

Mayday Parade – Kids of Summer

The powerhouse emo quintet Mayday Parade released their brand-new single, “Kids of Summer,” via Rise Records. Watch the music video HERE.

The anthemic single is a nostalgic ode to the band’s carefree summers on the Vans Warped Tour, with a stadium-sized, hands-in-the-air chorus that fans have come to expect from Mayday Parade. Just in time for the season, the accompanying music video, directed by Guadalupe Bustos, evokes the same joyful, summer feeling.

“‘Kids Of Summer’ is about one of the greatest moments in our band’s career which was touring numerous times on the Vans Warped Tour,” drummer Jake Bundrick shares about the new song. “Not only has that summer tour helped our band find an identity over the years, but it’s also helped us find our own selves in ways. We also know fans of ours and of the tour itself feel the same way, so we wanted to capture all of that in a summer anthem.”

About Mayday Parade

Since their formation, Mayday Parade have sold over 1.6 million albums in the U.S. inclusive of 675 million streams across their catalog, earning their spot as a household name in the industry. With a certified Gold album and countless global tours under their belt, the band shows no signs of slowing down as their fan base continues to grow. Recently, their debut album A Lesson In Romantics has found new life on TikTok, with fans using the original tracks in their content as well as creating their own cover versions, some amassing millions of views.

The new music arrives on the heels of the band’s recent fall headline tour announcement. Mayday Parade will make their triumphant return to the stage beginning September 8 with a two-week run featuring support from Microwave. In addition to the headline dates, Mayday Parade will appear at numerous festivals this year including Riot Fest (Chicago, IL), Four Chord Music Fest (Pittsburgh, PA), Furnace Festival (Birmingham, AL), Nova Rock Festival (Austria), Greenfield Festival (Switzerland), Hurricane Festival (Germany), and Southside Festival (Germany), with more to come on the horizon.

2020 marked a stark departure for the Tallahassee, FL band, who typically play several festivals and hundreds of shows across North America and internationally each year. After spending most of the year apart, the band, Derek Sanders, Brooks Betts, Alex Garcia, Jake Bundrick, and Jeremy Lenzo, got together for two special virtual show events, starting with the Out of Here Session in October, followed by the Anywhere But Here Session which highlighted a front-to-back performance of their 2009 sophomore LP Anywhere But Here.
