FUN. decides to “Carry On” in New York City

It’s been a massive year for the pop trio, FUN. with hits “We Are Young” and “Some Nights” dominating not only the radio, but commercials, television shows, and even movie trailers have decided to use these quirky guys songs. With “Carry On,” the third official single from the album Some Nights, FUN. finds themselves singing their hearts out in NYC.

After FUN.’s infectious previous hits, it’s too early to say whether “Carry On” will be just as successful, but the video sure does make one want to book a flight to New York City, get drunk, and stay up until the sun shows it’s face again.

Are the 90’s Back?

My time machine worked. It’s the 90’s again, and I have a chance to do things right this time! Well, in reality, the real reason it seems that the 90’s are back is because plenty of familiar faces from that decade will be making a comeback.

Backstreet Boys: BSB (as the cool kids used to call them….but no one does anymore) are reuniting and will be beginning to record a new album that will be released next spring. In order for this to feel like a true comeback, the oldest member of the famous boy band, Kevin Richardson, and his eyebrows, had to come back to his besties. And yes, Richardson agreed to return for one last hoorah. BSB’s (their I go again) new album will coincide with their 20th anniversary, and will always coincide with One Direction fans who have no idea who Backstreet Boys are….we’ll show them…we’ll them all…..

No Doubt: Settle Down, No Doubt is finally back. It’s been eleven years since No Doubt’s last album (Rock Steady) and Gwen and the boys have returned with their single “Settle Down,” which will be part of their new album Push and Shove, released September 25th. While it remains to be seen if their new album will be as successful as their second album Tragic Kingdom, it’s nice too see the popular ska band finally return home.

Green Day: If you’re out buying the new No Doubt album on September 25th, make sure to pick up the new Green Day album, UNO, released that same day; it’s like an adrenaline shot of nostalgia…I may cry. Judging from their first single “Oh Love,” it seems the California based band returned to their “Warning” days, and steered clear from their “American Idiot” days. Regardless, whether their music is politically fueled or not, any day with Green Day music, is a good day.

Matchbox Twenty: Continuing the trend of September releases, Matchbox Twenty will jump on the bandwagon and release their new album North, on September 4th. After a five year hiatus, MBT released their new single “She’s so Mean” and made sure to take advantage of the recent comebacks, and will try to cash in on the recent surge of 90’s bands.

 

So yes, I will be listening to all of these tunes, while playing my Gameboy, eating my DunkAroos, wearing my Ring Pop, and reading Goosebumps.

The Killers Have Run Back into Our Lives

Yes, that title may sound like the heading to a frighting article about murders running rampage, but in reality, it has to do with a certain Las Vegas band finally returning to music.

It’s been four years since the Killers last released their Day & Age album, and with their just newly released single “Runaways,” Brandon and the boys seem to have gone back to their “Sam’s Town” days, with a quick stop at Flamingo (Brandon Flowers Solo Album) boulevard.

Runaways is the first single off of The Killers new album titled “Battle Born” which will be yours to purchase or download illegally on September 14th.
