Forever Came Calling | The Heart Attack Tour

IMG_6363logoThe third stop of The Heart Attack Tour, made it’s way to the Altar Bar in Pittsburgh, PA on May 22nd. Forever Came Calling was the second band to open. The crowd was still fairly small but very willing to jump around to the live music. The band set up their equipment and sound checked quickly before their set. Once the clock stuck 7:45PM, the band was on stage and ready to begin their set. The crowd was very into the set clapping and of course there was a mosh pit. By the middle of it the crowd grew and more were enjoying their performance. The band put on one heck of a show. If this tour comes to a city near you, definitely go check them out!

Video Review: “Cold Night” – You Me At Six

1236384_10152087008979751_2044910301_n“Cold Night” comes from the band’s fifth studio album Cavalier Youth. This softer track is currently their new single and the music video is the perfect set for this song.

The music video has warmth of lights and different clips that keep it interesting. The video also showcases all members of the band. I really like the concept of how they chose to do this video.

Check it out!

EP Review: The Cab| Lock Me Up

10155058_10152097443048161_8840807869316318475_n

Artist: The Cab
EP: Lock Me Up
Release Date: April 29, 2014

It has been long awaited to hear new material from The Cab. With the announcement of a new EP before their actual record, which will be released this fall, personally, I was excited. Any The Cab fan would be excited for this new EP. It’s definitely a different approach. The EP seems to focus more on front man’s Alex DeLeon’s vocals. It also has the radio music pop feel to it.

The EP opens with “Lock Me Up” which sounds like some of their earlier material in the verses, but the chorus is definitely a different sound. DeLeon seems to wish that his suitor would lock up his heart. The second song on the album is titled “Moon” which has a very dance club tone to it. The next song, “Numbers”, is a softer ballad that definitely showcases DeLeon’s vocals. Its sound also reminds me of a Justin Timberlake song, which could be good or bad. The fourth song is titled “Stand Up”, personally DeLeon’s vocal range in this is wonderful and I can totally see this song on the radio. It has great lyrics and a nice vibe to it as well. The final song on this EP is “These Are The Lies” has really nice beats and effects in it.

Speaking as a Cab fan, I don’t exactly know how I feel about this album. It is definitely different and unexpected. The new sound could help the band prosper in different directions. Perhaps we have to wait for the full album to hear exactly where the band is headed. I would definitely go listen to this EP and give it a chance though!
