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.





New Track: "Cut Yr Teeth" - Kississippi

It's "about recognizing the toxicity of a relationship, and letting go of it along with your trust for the other half." Frontwoman Zoe Reynolds shares, "I wrote this song (and most of the forthcoming record) about finding my voice after having it taken away time and time again by people I thought were more powerful than me." "Cut Yr Teeth" also features Tombo Crush's Mary Allen on backing vocals. Sunset Blush is due out in April via SideOneDummy Records. (Photo by Megan Thompson)

Soft Glas tours with Sports, brings electric soul to Mercury on 12.13 and Baby's on 12.14

The music of Soft Glas -- a.k.a. producer and songwriter Joao Gonzalez -- evokes dreamy and funky vibes that both excite and chill the nerves. It's music that works well in a full length format, and Joao seems aware of it, since Orange Earth, released in September, is the project's third LP. Live, the musician plays/samples/loops a series of instruments on top of electronic tracks, and does it in an entertaining fashion - so much so that Soft Glas has was recently asked to tour in support of Oklahoma-based group Sports, playing shows in Los Angeles and Baltimore. He'll return to NYC on December 13th at Mercury Lounge, and then on the 14th, in Brooklyn at Baby's All Right. Catch either show if you can; otherwise, stream Soft Glas's latest single "Perks of Being a Sunflower" below. Close your eyes, and daydream. - Will Sisskind





New Music Video: "Deep Space Radio" - The Bad Larrys

With venemous guitar grooves and a "don't give a fuck if we wake the neighbors" attitude, the band just shared its latest rabble-rousing single, which can be found on the "Philly Phive's" upcoming debut album Hodads (due out December 31). You can also enjoy some accompanying footage of the gang below, provided by producer/band member Davis M. Shubs, Matt Piko, and Benjamin B. Neate.
