Welcome to PropertyOfZack: Weekender edition. Every weekend, we bring you some of biggest and most interesting pieces of the past week from our own content to stories or breaking news. If you’ve had a busy week and want to catch up with some light reading, we hope this is for you.
Basement End Hiatus: Band To Tour This Summer
As you could tell by the mass excitement around the internet (Tumblr), this is a big deal. Basement went away at the perfect time. They didn’t go away to get more money when they came back or something like that - they went away because they needed to live their own lives.
That just so happened to line up perfectly as “emo” and “grunge” styles of music starting becoming popular within our scene again, and that’s greatly because of the release of Colourmeinkindness.
What Basement does in 2014 and beyond will be interesting. We know that the band will be touring, but for how long, and where?
It seems probable that Basement will go back into hiding after this tour if they do not have a new album to support it (there’s no word on whether or not the band has been working on new music - don’t hold your breath). Regardless, Basement is bigger than any of us thought they were before the big announcement Wednesday.
American Football Reissuing LP + Unheard Demos
American Football = emo.
Basement = emo revival.
What a crazy week.
But really, American Football are finally releasing unheard demos that started getting rumored about on the internet in 2012 to go along with a reissue of their only full-length. American Football seems to be an album that is a stepping stone into “emo” for many people even in 2014, and it getting a proper reissue will only help its importance.
Fireworks Announce New Album ‘Oh, Common Life’
Oh, Common Life is Fireworks’ follow-up to Gospel. The band will be returning not only with a new album, but also with a new tour.
Defeater unfortunately had to drop off of The Wonder Years’ spring tour due to medical issues, but Fireworks are replacing them.
Paramore Break 10 World Records With “Ain’t It Fun” Music Video
Paramore are on top of the world right now. There was a lot of doubt on what the band’s self-titled album would bring them considering the gap between releases and the absence of the Farro brothers, but that’s all gone now. Even if self-titled is not your favorite Paramore record, the band is just clearly winning right now.
Platinum single. Arena tour. Fall Out Boy amphitheater tour. Superbowl performances left and right. TV performances. A music video breaking 10 world records.
It’s Paramore’s time. We’re living in it.
TDS Frontman Accuses Guitarist Of Forging Signature
Everything about The Dangerous Summer is a giant disaster. The truth? PropertyOfZack, AbsolutePunk, AltPress, and any other sites that cover The Dangerous Summer get a ton of traffic each time that Cody Payne and co fuck something up (that happens to be at least every other month). But you know what? We’d wager that every site would rather the band just make good music without bad drama.
This band is officially on its last legs. AJ Perdomo is becoming a father, Cody Payne seems to be spiraling again, and no one will take this band on tour because they are infected with the inability to get their shit together.
Chiodos Announce New Album ‘DEVIL’
Chiodos fans waited two years for DEVIL. Now it’s here.
Chiodos fans waited two years to buy DEVIL. There are no pre-orders here.
