Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.





Triathalon plays sold-out album release at Baby’s All Right 2.28

The lo-fi pop group Triathalon will celebrate the release of its third album, “Online,” with a sold-out show at Baby’s All Right on February 28th. After establishing a sound keen on lo-fi aesthetics and jazzy undertones, the Brooklyn group is about to release a record that ventures further into pop territory with a heavy R&B influence. The recordings are cleaner, the tones deeper, and there’s a novel suave element to it that makes it a lot more playful than the previous releases. However, the band's tracks maintain the band's signature dark, late night intimacy. With “Online,” Triathalon shows its true potential in the pop realm. For those lucky enough to have tickets, the Baby’s All Right show will be the first performance since the album’s release. Watch the video for standout track “Couch” below. – Cameron Carr





New Track: "Up From Below" - Remember Sports

Formerly known as Sports, Remember Sports will release their forthcoming album, Slow Buzz, on May 18 via Father/ Daughter Records. Its lead single, "Up From Below," wastes little time, jumping out of the gates at a frenetic pace. A seemingly breathless vocal delivery matches the track's instrumental intensity. Reflecting in an ongoing emotional-evolution, the song quickly gathers momentum while opening a portal into personal perspective. Remember Sports will headline Everybody Hits on Friday, February 23, where they'll be joined by Tall Friend, Boosegumps, and Slow Ref.





New Hurry LP Available for Streaming

Every Little Thought, the new full-length album from Hurry, will officially be released on February 23 via Lame-O Records. In advance, the trio recently shared a video of themselves sitting consumed by their phones, with a sign that reads "EVERY LITTLE THOUGHT Hurry 'world premiere'" hanging behind them while the album plays in its entirety. The collection of songs continues the group's trend of producing crisp, melodic, personally-insightful music that moves with a loose but purposeful pace. The tracks go with the flow; however, they do manage to soar when the opportunity knocks. The band will be hosting its record release show at Everybody Hits on Saturday, February 24, supported by Amanda X and Worriers' Lauren Denitzio performing solo.





New Track: "Chains" - Lovelorn

In the aftermath of Creepoid’s final show, its offshoot, Lovelorn, has emerged with a debut single. “Chains” finds Anna Troxell, Patrick Troxell, and PeteJoe Urban pulling listeners into a haunted space. Anna’s vocals serve as the candle light leading the way through a labyrinth, as the backend marches in line and the guitar stirs, doubling down on the menacing atmospherics. You can catch Lovelorn's first live Philly performance at Underground Arts on Sunday, March 25, with Dead Meadow and Dallas Acid.
