All Time Low Debut New Track, ‘PMA’ Feat Pale Waves

Pop Rock heroes All Time Low have dropped a new single, ‘PMA’ (Post Modern Anxiety) which also features from British band Pale Waves

Alex Gaskarth said the following:

“‘PMA’ is a journey into isolation and overstimulation. It’s about the little mundane things we do to keep ourselves distracted when loneliness becomes a constant and leaves us feeling apathetic. It’s existential dread wrapped in nervous laughter kissed by the SoCal sun. Heather and Pale Waves joining us on this one quite literally brings the hopeful shine to the lyrics, the promise of safety in the shared experience, the understanding we’re all living it together.”

Check out the studio version of the track below.

Pale Waves Release Video For ‘You Don’t Own Me’

Manchester quartet band Pale Waves have shared a video for ‘You Don’t Own Me’, the latest single from their recently released record, ‘Who Am I?’

Heather Baron-Gracie (Guitar / Vocals) had this to say of the track.

“‘You Don’t Own Me’ is a song for women about what it’s like to be a woman in this world. How society depicts, judges and criticises women on a daily basis. This song is incredibly important to me and I wanted to represent my own experiences. I also wanted to say a big fuck you to everyone that plays by these fake delusional rules that women and gender need to fit inside a specific box.”

Check out the video for ‘You Don’t Own Me’ below.

‘Who Am I?’ is available now via Dirty Hit.

You can order the record via the band’s official webstore.

Pale Waves Release Video For ‘Fall To Pieces’

Pale Waves have dropped a video for their track, ‘Fall To Pieces’, which was on their recent record release off ‘Who Am I?’.

Heather Baron-Gracie (Guitar/Vocals) says:

“At the start of the relationship I’m in, my mental health was really all over the place and I was having a tough time with a lot of things in my life, and I was sort of putting my partner through it. Luckily, they’re amazing and they stuck by me and they pulled me through it. But it had an impact on our relationship. I created this argument and we went through it again and again, because at the time I wasn’t completely stable. Anything that troubles me, I feel like I need to get out.”

New Music Roundup 18/12/20

Hello everyone welcome back to the New Music Roundup! We’re here for a roundup of five of the best recently released tracks. They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!

First up this wee are Frank Iero and his band, The Future Violence with the second track from their upcoming EP, ‘Heaven Is A Place, This Is A Place’ set to be released on January 15th 2021 via UNFD.

This is just a true Punk track with raw vocals as well as blaring drums to match.

Next up this week we have the Bristolian pack Superlove with their standalone, raucous track “Not Me! Not You!”.  The track, which follows their recently released brand new self-titled EP also comes in support of Rude Records 20th Anniversary.

“This single represents a pure burst of energy that we wanted to release having been sat around for most of the year.” says singer Jacob.  “It’s a song about people not having a clue what’s going on in the world. It’s a step away from our last few singles from our recent EP & it just felt right to throw it out into the world and watch the reaction seeing as though we can’t go and play some live shows off the back of the EP’s release. We recorded it in the first week of the UK’s 2nd lockdown and it’s been the quickest turnaround for a release yet, we are so excited of the prospect of hopefully playing it live one day to a proper rowdy room.”

Continuing in recent form for the Sweedish Trio Normandie, the latest effort, ‘Atmosphere’, is the latest choice of single to come from the band’s upcoming record, ‘Dark & Beautiful Secrets’ which is set for a release via Easy Life Records on February 19th 2021.

Vocalist Philip Strand had this to say of the track.

“One in five people in Europe say they experience feelings of loneliness, and during the pandemic many more feel anxious and isolated. With ‘Atmosphere’, we wanted to highlight the issue of loneliness online and how hard it can be to reach out for real connections. With the video we tried to focus on the lyrics, and let the visuals reflect on the emotions in the song.”

We’ve been waiting on some Pale Waves news for a while and we got it with the first track ‘Change’ and now this is a little bit of a different track to say the least with the Indie influence mixed with Avril Lavigne vibes, we have ‘She’s My Religion’ which is off their upcoming record, ‘Who Am I?’ which will be released via Dirty Hit on February 12th 2021.

Now I had to choose this track for the final pick this week and that is David Hasselhoff.

The Hoff has teamed up with Austrian duo CueStack for an epic single and sci-fi-tinged video, Through The Night, with the band previously revealing of how it all came about: ​“The project started in 2018 and many demos were made, many meetings were held and what seemed like an impossible idea slowly turned into a reality. David finally recorded the track with us, CueStack, in 2019 in Vienna and we also shot a cinematic music video together.”

And that’s it for another week of a roundup of the best new tracks out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos. If you have any suggestions for me to check out, be sure to send an email or message us via the socials on Facebook or Twitter!

Just an announcement for the next two weeks New Music Roundup, there’s not going to be one post because of the holidays and will resume in the new year. Happy Holidays everyone from Almost Anything Music.

Pale Waves Announces Second Record, ‘Who Am I?’

Indie Pop-Rockers Pale Waves have announced their second studio record, titled as ‘Who Am I’. The record is set to be released on February 12th 2021 via Dirty Hit.

Pale Waves’ comeback track ‘Change’ – described as “a true heartbreaker” – was premiered on BBC Radio 1 tonight (November 10) as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World.

The forthcoming full-length was recorded primarily in Los Angeles alongside producer Rich Costey (whom has previously worked with Muse and Foo Fighters) before the coronavirus crisis forced the studio sessions online.

According to a press release, ‘Who Am I?’ “acts as the Pale Waves manifesto – inspiring inclusivity, self-discovery, and the notion of being whoever the hell you want to be”. Its lyrics draw on frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie’s own experiences of depression, distraction, and feelings of darkness.

“For me, music and art is for people not to feel so alone and isolated,” Baron-Gracie explained. “I want to be that person my fans look up to and find comfort in.”

Check out the Cover Art, Tracklisting, Video for their lead single ‘Change’ and Pre-Order options below.

  1. ‘Change’
  2. ‘Fall To Pieces’
  3. ‘She’s My Religion’

Live At Leeds 2020 Has Been Cancelled

The 2020 iteration of the festival Live At Leeds has been fully cancelled after previous plans to push it back to November of 2020.

Live At Leeds was set to be headlined by Pale Waves, with performances also coming from Easy Life, The Coral, Ezra Furman and more.

Confirming the cancellation, Live At Leeds said:

“It may not come as a great surprise, but it will not be possible to go ahead with Live at Leeds 2020 as planned.

“We’d hoped by moving the festival to the end of the year we stood the best chance we had of going ahead, but with the current guidance it’s now clear that won’t be possible, and certainly wouldn’t be the Live at Leeds experience we’ve all grown to enjoy.”

They added: “Live at Leeds is a labour of love. We run this event to introduce music fans to new talent, to bring people to our city and to support the venues, staff and talented freelancers that operate throughout Leeds.”

Live At Leeds will return in 2021 but also urged fans to continue the support for festivals, record stores and independent artists stressing they “need your support now more than ever.”
