    The Villains give their fans a little something for the pain

    Stryper does it live

    Stryper's Live at the Whiskey finds the veteran Christian metal band at one of its old stomping grounds.

    Kix returns to Rock your Face Off with new album: Steve Whiteman interview

    In Baltimore, Maryland, Kix is rock and roll royalty, but outside of the band’s regional territory the mention of the group name is likely to be followed by the statements, “Oh yeah, I remember those guys,” or “Aren’t they the one’s that did that one song?” Kix is one of the greatest little rock...

    Rock on, gold dust woman: Stevie Nicks’ new album drops Oct. 7

    Is anyone really surprised to learn that the high priestess of rock – a prolific and intuitive songwriter – has a secret stash of unreleased tunes that she’s compiled over the last five decades?

    Linda Perry takes on reality TV

    Linda Perry is best known as the beautiful frontwoman of the 90's band 4 Non Blondes. The band had tons of radio play with their one and only hit song "What's Up?"

    All-American Rejects and Boys Like Girls: A match made in heaven

    It’s always a joy when two individual bands, who are great in their own right, come together for a joint performance. The All-American Rejects and Boys Like Girls are a match made in heaven, in this regard. They complement each other so gracefully that you can get lost in their music. As separate...

    Against Me! creates a powerful statement with 'Transgender Dysphoria Blues'

    The most obvious difference between Against Me!’s Transgender Dysphoria Blues and 2010’s White Crosses is that its singer (Laura Jane Grace) is now a woman. But differences are really quite superficial, if that’s not too much of an understatement. If you’ve ever had the chance to see the group, all...

    The Baseball Project pefectly mixes baseball with rock & roll

    You don’t have to be a baseball fan to appreciate 3rd, the – appropriately enough – third album from the hardball-obsessed The Baseball Project, but it helps. This 18-track album is chock full of fantastic alternative rock. However, it’s even more fun if you have some familiarity with some its...

    Boys Like Girls: And great pop-rock music

    Andover natives Boys Like Girls have become somewhat of an icon in terms of softcore rock music comparable to the stylings of the All-American Rejects and later work by Good Charlotte. They’re the kind of band that presents an easy-listening style with that little bit of edginess that keeps them off...

    Incubus: They bring the funk

    Anyone who knows anything about the modern industry in terms of where rooted rock music still stands knows about the almost ancient Incubus. For a group that’s been together for more than two decades, their act hasn’t grown at all stale. In fact, one could argue that they’ve only improved in all the...

    Angels & Airwaves: A new kind of wave

    After the fallout from what appeared to be the end of Blink-182’s long commitment to the stage and recording together, Angels & Airwaves emerged, acting as a fair compromise for fans of Tom DeLonge’s voice who wanted something a little more serious than Blink was able to offer over their years...

    The Maine: Center of the event

    The best music in the industry is arguably that which we seldom hear on the radio and see topping the Billboard charts. Arizona rock group The Maine sort of fits into this category.
