Actors – It Will Come To You

From Vancouver, Canada, Actors electrify with a modern take on post-punk. On debut full-length It Will Come to You, anthemic songs evoke the urgency of early-’80s U2 (Boy, October, War) as well as the driving, synth-drenched scores that emanated from that era’s movie screens. As scene authority put it, the band conjures “cinematic new-wave… that belongs on a Michael Mann soundtrack.”(Bucketlist Music Reviews)

Scenic Route To Alaska – Tough Luck

Scenic Route to Alaska know the measure of a good hook.

The Edmonton trio have locked in on an unwavering approach on their fourth album, and it serves them well.(Exclaim!)

Three Days Grace – Outsider

Living in socially complex times, what makes us feel human? With so many platforms for people to spew opinions without a filter, what is real and what is feeding a machine of dissolution, hate, and over-reaction? Do you often feel like you want to break away from it all? Become…the outsider? Well, fortunately many of us are not alone in feeling exhausted and, at times, drowning in sensory overload. No, Three Days Grace can relate and with that they bring to the table their latest album, Outsider, due out Friday, March 9, 2018, through RCA Records.(
