5 Fan Reactions To How Expensive Blink 182 Concert Tickets Are

The internet has been buzzing since we learned that Tom Delong has returned to Blink 182. There's a new song "Edging" to be excited about and a world tour planned for 2023 & 2024. One area that has fans a little confused is ticket prices. From what we've gathered, many of the extremely high prices are folks (and bots?) who are attempting to re-sell tickets obtained through the official pre-sale. Tickets went on sale to the general public on Monday (10/17) at 10 AM. Will you be attending any of Blink 182s upcoming reunion shows? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below. Let's hear what the internet has to say about the ticket issue. 1. I've seen a few people on social media complaining about how expensive blink-182 tickets are for their upcoming tour. I gu...

408 Release Anthemic “2016” Collaboration With Titus

Anticipation is building for the release of the new album from 408. Filled with pop punk and alt-rock bangers, Out Of It can't get here soon enough. The newest single from the album is an uptempo energetic new song called "2016" and the album is due October 28th. The new single features Titus on vocals. Coming off a string of successful singles, their most recent effort went viral. "Backfired" with Taylor Acorn has racked up hundreds of thousands of streams and connected with fans on Tik Tok. What we like about 408 is that we can hear the pop-punk roots they're grounded in but other influences permeate through the music. If you listen closely, you can hear the hip hop, EDM, and electronica bleed through. The result is an up-and-coming band that is familiar yet fresh. New M...

Wolf Rd Drops Pop-Punk Anthem “Way Down”

Wolf Rd is back with a banger of a new single in the form of "Way Down". The band just celebrated the single drop with a big release show at Chicago's Bottom Lounge. Photo Credit: Kelley Curran "Way Down" taps into a little bit of everything I like about the pop-punk genre. It has catchy melodies, heavy guitar breakdowns, and lyrics with depth. The song is about picking up the pieces after you've had your heart broken. Frontman Chris Hoffmann had this to say about the track. "Way Down" is fast and dancey and energetic because it’s not about staying down when you feel bad – it’s a song about pulling yourself up, putting yourself back out there, and being determined not to let your past or other peoples’ opinions determine how you’re going to live your life. Goodbye, and good rid...

Magnolia Park’s ‘Heart Eater’ EP Is A Pop Punk Masterpiece

The new EP from Magnolia Park is out now. Heart Eater is an action-packed four-song EP loaded with special guests. The only complaint that comes to mind is the fact I didn't discover these guys sooner. Magnolia Park first popped on my radar in March when vocalist Joshua Roberts teamed up with 408 on the pop-punk anthem "Mark Hoppus". The song made some waves even catching the attention of the Blink 182 vocalist/bassist himself on Twitter. Leading up to the release of Heart Eater, they dropped singles with members of Bad Suns, Mayday Parade, and former skateboarder/YouTube star Chad Tepper. Fast forward to Friday and the release of the EP, they dropped their strongest track to date. "Serious" is the one song on the EP that doesn't have a guest appearance. And just goes to show they...

Big Drink's new single "Different Circles" could be a sign of big things to come from the band. This pop-punk outfit hails from the UK and has hit a home run with their new song. It Was Supposed To Be Easy is the new EP set for release on June 3rd. Fans of A Day To Remember, Four Year Strong and other bands with a similar vibe have a strong chance of enjoying "Different Circles". The song features crunchy guitars, catchy accessible vocals, and some really enjoyable growling about two minutes in. "Different Circles" is a twisting journey exploring the thoughts and feelings behind giving up. Aimed at trying to explain the upwards battle faced in life and creative endeavours, the track hints at dissatisfaction and isolation in making music during lockdown and the piling pressure ...
