POORSTACY - “Nothing Left” ft. Travis Barker

POORSTACY – “Nothing Left” ft. Travis Barker

Modern day rockstar, POORSTACY, releases his new single “Nothing Left” featuring Blink 182’s Travis Barker, out now via 10K Projects. “Nothing Left” arrives on the heels of his latest single “Love Spells,” and his appearance on the Bill & Ted Face the Music soundtrack. With an energetic and irresistible beat, “Nothing Left” asserts POORSTACY as a rising force in the genre. “Nothing Left” is POORSTACY’s second single with Travis Barker and will certainly not be the last. The pair plans to release a full project together in 2021.

Growing up on a diet of punk, metal, and hip hop, rising artist POORSTACY is a sum of disparate influences. The 21-year-old singer, rapper and guitarist spent his formative years performing shows in small venues around his hometown of Palm Beach, Florida: “There’s a real metal scene out here. Lots of punk rock, gothic stuff. I’ve chosen to actually make music based on what I grew up around.” Combining the power chords and angst of punk with the 808s and half-sung melodies of modern hip hop, POORSTACY quickly gained the attention of record label 10K Projects, who signed the young artist in early 2019. With lyrics often focused on themes of isolation and anxiety, POORSTACY’s work feels both intimate and universal, and has led to collaborations with multi-Platinum selling producer Nick Mira (Juice WRLD, Post Malone) and, most recently, Blink-182’s Travis Barker.

Since the beginning of his music making, POORSTACY’s influences have remained eclectic, ranging from Slipknot, Billy Idol, Earl Sweatshirt and Flatbush Zombies. Citing legendary Z-Boys skateboarder, Stacy Peralta, as the inspiration behind his artist name, he notes, “Stacy Peralta himself was not shown a lot of attention at the start, but he ended up being one of the biggest legends in skateboarding in the end. I always loved the idea of that, of doing your own thing and having it pay off.” Also citing films like V For Vendetta, Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween, and Trainspotting as inspiration, a core tenet of POORSTACY’s songwriting is drawing metaphors from unlikely sources.

His debut album, The Breakfast Club, was released at the beginning of 2020, a nod to the 1985 cult classic. “The album was written based on pure instinct and raw emotion,” he reflects, “I want people to understand themselves by hearing their feelings put into words through me.” Featuring labelmate iann dior, The Breakfast Club was a hip hop/punk record which reflected his South Florida upbringing and proved his ability to create a large cohesive project. With punk and metal-heavy tracks like “Hotel” and “Afraid,” POORSTACY shows off his range and his fearlessness as a songwriter.

Poorstacy – Don’t Look At Me Video

Today, POORSTACY releases the music video for his latest song “Don’t Look at Me,” out now via 10K Projects. Dropped in late July as a bonus track on The Breakfast Club Deluxe, “Don’t Look at Me” is a high energy rock offering with production by popular electronic artist Whethan. A nod to his upbringing in Florida’s underground music scene, POORSTACY’s self-directed music video features a DIY, punk aesthetic and shows the rising star performing to a chaotic, crowded room. To fill the set with partygoers, the creative young rocker posted mysterious “prom night” posters around his hometown of West Palm Beach, Florida (flyer attached below).

VOLBEAT DEBUT NEW SONG, “PELVIS ON FIRE”

Multi-platinum Danish rock band Volbeat debut their new song “Pelvis on Fire,” a cheeky nod to the fun and frivolous rock of yore. “It’s a pure rock ‘n’ roller,” according to Poulsen. “When you hear songs from the ‘50s and ‘60s, and read the lyrics, they are not that deep. But it sounds great. It is a feeling. It’s a movement. It’s sexuality. It’s emotional and that thing we feel when we hear good rock ‘n’ roll.” Listen to “Pelvis on Fire,” off Volbeat’s forthcoming Rewind, Replay, Rebound (August 2nd, Republic Records) here.

Volbeat’s 29-date tour tour in support of Slipknot, on their extensive Knotfest Roadshow North American Tour as special guests, will kick off today in Mountain View, CA with additional stops in Salt Lake City, Phoenix, and Austin (full dates below).  Tickets for these dates are on sale now here.
