The Dead Licks "What Happened"

The Dead Licks released a new single this week called “What Happened”. This is the first new music we’ve had from the Alt Rock Quartet since their early 2018 debut LP, Stay Away from the Aliens.

This is the first of two singles the band has planned for the first half of 2019 before they release their sophomore album.

You can catch The Dead Licks tonight, May 3rd, at Harte’s Saloon in Evergreen Park.

You can help Dehd celebrate the release of Water on May 10 at Empty Bottle with The Hecks and Mavis The Dog.

Poplife "Bad Attitude"

Bruce Jazz trio Poplife released a new single last month called “Bad Attitude”. This is the funky yacht rock of Ben McFadden (Keys, Vocals, Guitar) (aka McFabulous) along with Foul Tip’s Adam Luksetich (Bass) and Ed Bornstein (Drums). For this single, their first in a year, the trio recruited the talented Vivian McConnell (aka V.V. Lightbody) on backing vocals.

The Burst and Bloom seems to be on a mission to release a new song each month this year, and May’s track is called “Winter”. This is the amped-up Emo Rock of Adrian Serrano, Juan Santiago, Tyler Leninger, and Vincent Depierro.

It was only a couple of week’s ago that the group released an introspective track called “Dead Dads Club” that can also be streamed below.
