"Modern" Music to Check Out

Recommended Posts

Hats off to you Geoff! This thread is an extensive research on modern rock. Its indeed very informative.

 

Grateful to you that I got introduced to great bands such as The New Shining, Silly Fools, Crashcarburn, Cauterize, Parachute Run Kid Run, Summerlin etc. Am yet to check out so many of them mentioned on this thread(don't think I will be able to cover all). Could you please suggest names of bands along the lines of the bands that I have mentioned. Thanks.

My favourite Modern Hard Rock band is The Classic Crime. First two albums are essential. Third album was a bit hit and miss. Fourth one was a nice return to form. Fifth album is acoustic versions of previous material.

 

Matt MacDonald, their lead singer, is one of my favourite songwriters. The man is a poet.

Mate, I'd have to really sit down and think about that one. You've tried A Change Of Pace, Boys Like Girls, Coldrain etc?

Just Surrender were excellent too. Monty Are I also.

 

I've heard of and tried Hands Like Houses before but never delved any further. Will check out the new album, though.

Oh yes, very good. A very familiar sound (kind of like Bring Me The Horizon mixed with a bunch of UK modern bands)... but I like it. I'll definitely check it out. Great chorus. Good voice, too.

Well worth checking out is Rivers Monroe from Philadelphia.The Philadelphia-based quintet began when keyboardist/vocalist, Mat Rivers, joined long-time friend and lead-singer Mike Monroe. The two songwriters teamed up with guitarist, Doc, bassist, Kirby and drummer, Dan, to fill out their new pop/rock/punk sound, infused with energy and emotion. Their pop hooks, passionate lyrics, and enthusiastic performances (not to mention, hard work) landed them a national tour and a number of sponsorships including: Coca-Cola, Sunoco, Cerwin-Vega and Motel 6.

2 albums to date Rivers Monroe (2014) and Smart Girls (2015) both well worth checking out.

Thanks mate, love them both (Natives & Rivers Monroe). I'll check them out asap. Where do you find out about bands like these? These are the types of bands I am 100% sure I am missing out on in mass numbers per year but I don't know how to rectify it.

 

Only this week I found out Pillar (in 2015) and Quietdrive (in December 2014) released new albums that I knew nothing of until this week. Two bands I am very fond of. I hate missing stuff like that, but where do you keep on top of all this type of stuff?

I find out about some of these bands by stumbling across them on the net utube etc. As AOR is my forte my knowledge on modern/alt stuff is limited but i have a mate who is all over this genre and he gives me the heads up on stuff he thinks i'll like.

It's always good to have friends like that. Let them do all the hard work. I have a friend like that for Hip Hop. ;}

You sure he's a friend? If I had a friend giving me a heads up on hip hop releases he thinks I'd like, I'd mash his face into the next potato salad I made.

None. At all. But that's how I roll and I have no issues with it.

And Pillar's rocks big time....in fact, I just picked it up like a month ago myself. Didn't know a thing about it either until I was on Amazon.....

Yeah, the Pillar album has very good songs on it. There was something a little amiss about it for me, but it was still a very good album. The band seemed a little restrained. I thought the songs were as good as the previous couple of albums, but they seemed to hold back a lot more. Not quite the power and passion of those last albums. And there was something weird going on with the backing vocals too... almost like they were toned down a lot, kind of cast aside when they were in the forefront on 'For the love of the game.'

 

I need a few more listens, but I agree that the album is good... I just feel that with a couple of pretty minor tweaks, it could have been significantly better.

Surprised I haven't made a thread for these guys in the past, but the ever-reliable A Day To Remember have released another fine album. It's called 'Bad Vibrations.'

 

1 - Bad Vibrations
2 - Paranoia
3 - Naivety
4 - Exposed
5 - Bullfight
6 - Reassemble
7 - Justified
8 - We Got This
9 - Same About You
10 - Turn Off The Radio
11 - Forgive And Forget
12 - Negative Space
13 - In Florida
A couple of my favourite tunes;
I was also pretty impressed with the new Crown The Empire album, 'Retrograde.' Gone are the post-hardcore screams, and what's left is actually a pretty good, catchy modern hard rock/metal disc;
1 - Sk-68
2 - Are You Coming With Me?
3 - Zero
4 - Aftermath
5 - Hologram
6 - The Fear Is Real
7 - Lucky Us
8 - Weight Of The World
9 - Signs Of Life
10 - Oxygen
11 - Kaleidoscope

Nah, to be honest it's one of their weaker recent albums, but I do find them very reliable even when they're not at their absolute best. I'd put it behind 'Homesick,' 'Common Courtesy' and 'What Separates me from you.'

 

But, considering they're all 80%+ albums in my eyes, it's hardly a bad thing. :)

Agreed

 

Good band although I think they would be even better if they toned down a lot of the screaming , their best songs are the ones with no screams IMO

 

That Crown the empire looks interesting , will check that one out

    • Loved their first album. Really disappointed by the second.  After 2 or 3 spins I'd say this one's a lot better than the last. 
    • Looking forward to this one   1. I Salute You 2. Arianne 3. Night Drive 4. Chariot Of Fire 5. Bring On The Rain 6. Love Is A Beautiful Lie 7. Ticking Away 8. Battle Ground 9. Candle In The Window 10. Rock In The City Vinyl and CD pre-orders announced soon. 
    • I was only reacting to the statement 'I'd rather have the virus and the economy recover'  be careful what you wish is all. over and out. see ya 
    • Just to explain how good we have it here in Australia. Our total cases since the beginninga re around 10,000 Yesterday, the USA had over 60,000 new cases. that's 6 times our total since it began. What right to we have to complain. Like I said before, the US is fucked with this, and I don't mean that in a nasty way, I mean that in feeling sorry for how rampant it is there. :(
    • Jeez you love the drama, mate.  Yes, the disease will have long-term effects on some - a very small minority of all those who contract it. It may also come out in the fullness of time that Measles, the Flu, Conjunctivitis etc... whatever... that any range of diseases would also have caused long term side-effects to these same people if they'd contracted some other form of disease.  But, for the overwhelming, vast majority of people, these side effects you want to panic the whole world with will likely not exist.  I really don't get your fondness for these wild blanket statements you make.  The other thing I keep thinking about this thing is that for every diagnosed case of COVID-19 there are probably double the amount of people that may have also had it and not even known it, or not had it diagnosed.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the virus is a great thing and sign me up - I want a copy. Just saying your thirst for drama is real. 
    • A great track from the new E19 album. Their fourth. These guys are always sensational value. Very underrated.     
    • Not great (and not bad) but I'll anticipate the rest of the album is better. I think I liked the last one too. 
    • I know nothing about this but sounds like extreme intelligence in motion again. I believe later this week the colour white will be removed from colour charts around the world?  I personally feel strongly that reading, writing and all forms of speech should be banned so as not to cause offence to anyone.
    • Irresistable - Steve Carrell is in this, so an instant watch for me. Was only ok though. Enjoyable enough, wouldn't go out of my way to see it again. Becky - only issue is that her age in this movie is 13, which is too young for what she does. Kevin James plays a white supremasist in this, so it's been removed from Netflix, which is kinda stupid. He is actually really good in it. Survive The Night - Bruce Willis, so I gave it a go. Rent-a-script. Seen it 100 times before.
