PropertyOfZack has confirmed with Walden that as of today, nothing is off the table, but that he has yet to join any band, including Emarosa. You can read the statement Walden originally gave to POZ when he left Squid below after the jump.

Westboro Baptist Church To Boycott Attila

The Westboro Baptist Church will be boycotting Attila at Warped Tour, which is just confusing considering the band has no qualms with sharing homophobic slurs in their music. You’d imagine both parties would be bffs.

POZ Review: Squid The Whale - Four More

by Zack Zarrillo - Feb 15, 2013

*This review was composed by Sydney Gore and edited by Erik van Rheenen

It’s getting easy to realize that bands with whale in their names are usually pretty amazing. So there’s no surprise that Squid The Whale supports this statement. Brandon Kubiac (guitar), Daniel Jay (bass), Jonathan Wagoner (drums) and Bradley Walden (vocals) show everyone the power of rock & soul on the Four More EP.

“Bad Man” starts with a gospel choir before completely switching gears straight to rock and roll. Walden’s vocals match the gospel tone, enriching the soulful sound when he strains behind Kubiac’s gritty guitar playing. This song is more playful and will make most fans want to dance until they lose feeling in their feet.

“How Do I Show These Cowboys I’m Alive” is an edgier track as Walden talks back, singing, “You don’t know me, you just know my name.” It’s oozing with sass and will empower listeners dealing with an enemy that brings out the worst in them. 

“Drown Pt. 2” is completely piano-based, dragging the tempo down to a slower pace as Walden strips down his voice and invites the listener into his soul. This song also features a female vocalist, who evokes an eerier vibe as she softly sings, “I’ll wait for you” to Walden. About halfway through, the volume of the two voices crescendos as they sing back and forth to each other while being drowned out by a sound clip. It’s like Squid The Whale sets the listener up for a fight, and at the end, leaves them swimming in their own muddled thoughts.

POZ BandsOnBands: Squid The Whale On Black Veil Brides

by Zack Zarrillo - Feb 4, 2013

Mondays mean BandsOnBands, and we’re excited to be posting the PropertyOfZack feature today with Bradley Walden of Squid The Whale. The band just released a new EP called Four More, so make sure to download it here

In this week’s feature, Bradley steps up to talk about Black Veil Brides. Don’t believe it? Well, believe it. Listen to songs by Black Veil Brides here and check out what Bradley had to say about one of his biggest influences below!

From Bradley Walden of Squid The Whale:

When we think of bands that have influenced us, so many come to mind. We grew up listening to what we believed was real, honest music. Acts like Michael Jackson, Joy Division, Led Zeppelin, etc.  So naturally when we think influences, we think Black Veil Brides.

“A bleeding heart can conquer every crutch”, lyrics like that just really speak to us and motivate us to be a better band and grow. There’s such honesty and truth to that band. Which is what we think Squid is all about, honesty.

You just know before they’re on stage, they can feel it. Once their make-up is on point, outfits are all in sync, they’re ready to tell a story. You have to respect that, who doesn’t love the 80’s? Who doesn’t miss KISS? I know we do.

Bands like that give us hope. No, we don’t have chains yet. No, we don’t have the leather. You watch a band like that and you realize exactly who you want to be. You realize that you want to work towards the chains. You want to work towards the leather.
