Song of the Week: Lead single “Over and Over Again” by The Used from upcoming 7th studio album The Canyon

New music Friday was a great day for new music and the song that stood out the most to me was the new single “Over and Over Again” by The Used.

The song is the official lead single from their upcoming 7th studio album The Canyon, scheduled to drop on October 27th, 2017 via Hopeless Records.

Looking at the track list on Wikipedia, the album contains 17 tracks with a whopping 78:59 run time. I wonder if at any point the band considered this project to be a double album?

The album is the first to feature work by new guitarist Justin Shekoski who replaced founding guitarist Quinn Allman.

The Used also released a standout video for the song which can be seen below.

Catch the band on tour in the US with Glassjaw through November. A highly recommend live show!

Song of the Week: New Mastodon single “Toes To Toes” off upcoming new EP

On the heels of their spectacular album Emperor of Sand released earlier this year, Mastodon is readying a late-September release of an EP entitled Cold Dark Place. The first glimpse of this EP is the single “Toes To Toes” featuring majority of vocals from guitarist Brent Hinds. This track was recorded during the Emperor of Sand sessions while the other three tracks were recorded during the 2014 Once More ‘Round the Sun sessions.

A good watch is this video for the story behind the cover art.
