Well, this is one I had yet to see at Slam Dunk Festival but it did happen at the South date!
During As It Is’s set, the band invited a fan up on stage to propose. You have to see it to believe it, and you can see it below!
Oooh, more record news! This post concerns the band Trophy Eyes and the details of their follow up from their 2016 record, ‘Chemical Miracle’.
It’s going to be called American Dream which is set to be released August 3rd via Hopeless Records which looks like this.
And this is what the tracklisting looks like.

07. You Can Count On Me
09. Tip Toe
10. Lavender Bay
11. Miming In The Choir
12. A Symphony Of Crickets
13. I Can Feel It Calling
The first single is ‘You Can Count On Me’ and you can view the video below.
In a turn of events that nobody thought would happen, The Maine have been handed a lifetime ban from the social media website for probably a stupid reason.
The judgement has come because the band input their birthday as the date the band formed, making them only 11 years old.
In terms of the service of the social media website, you have to be at least 13 years old in order to have an account.
So, in plain terms, they were honest… and they got banned.
But don’t worry, Dashboard Confessional were on hand to help out!
Music, in general, coming out of Australia is in safe hands at the moment. You have Tonight Alive followed by Stand Atlantic and now Between You & Me, who have announced the details of their debut record.
