It’s time to celebrate with our Real Friends… the band, of course. The well loved pop punkers have released a new video for their song “From The Outside”, and it’s got us popping champagne.
The colorful flick is full of 70’s vibes and even has a unicorn piñata. The song accompanying it shows how much Real Friends has grown in their time as a band, thanks to a mature edge partnered with their usual hard hitting sound. Watch “From The Outside” above!

If you drank ten cups of coffee this morning, you still wouldn’t have as much energy as The Frights’ new music video. The San Diego punk band paired their loud, catchy song “CRUTCH” with a video that makes us want to head out on tour.
Watch along and follow their trip through town to a sold out venue where they will, presumably, play an epic show. Most of the video focuses on the band as they lay head to head in the back of the van (pre-show bonding exercise?) and eat snacks—so yeah, you’re gonna be hungry after this one.

Whether you’re a Phish fan or just really like ice cream, you’re about to be stoked. Frozen desert gods Ben & Jerry have announced a collaboration to celebrate the 21st anniversary of The Water Wheel Foundation.
The new flavor will be titled “It’s Ice… Cream,” playing on the band’s 1991 track “It’s Ice.” As for what to expect when you take a bite, you’ll be indulging in caramel malt ice cream, almond toffee pieces, fudge fish, and a caramel swirl. Plus, you can avoid sharing by telling everyone it’s fish food (it’s not a total lie, right?)
For more information on when and where you can pick up this sweet treat, head to the Ben & Jerry’s website.
Waiting to hear Dance Gavin Dance’s new album when it drops tomorrow? While it’s true that Artificial Skeleton won’t be out for a few more hours, we have something to hold you over until then. The band has dropped a strange and intense video for the song “Count Bassy”.
Centered around a key and the discovery of some photos, the four minute flick can’t be described—so you’ll just have to watch it for yourself. Directed by Mount Emult, it’s truly a wild ride from start to finish. Hit play on the video above!

A few weeks back, I had the chance to catch sister trio Von Grey perform at Mercury Lounge in NYC. I was immediately enamored by the classically trained act whose eerie yet wistful vocals grabbed the attention of every single person in the room – and for good reason. One of my favorite tracks from their set was “Plans,” a track about transition and growth, and earlier this week Von Grey released the accompanying music video.
The video itself is simple. Self-directed and produced by the sisters, the video shows their lives in an unstaged, documentary-type way. Fiona Von Grey explains, “Plans video is a quick, intimate snapshot of our past few years. We’ve been in and out of studios, we’ve been intermittently in school, we’ve collaborated with some stunningly talented individuals, and we’ve changed a lot. This video is a little keepsake for us – a little memory saver.”
“Plans” is the first single off Von Grey’s new EP, In Bloom: Acoustic, set for July 20th, 2018.

If you’re in need of a good acoustic jam, may we suggest the newest single from Finn Matthews, “A Million And One.” Fans of artists like Shawn Mendes and Charlie Puth are sure to be enamored with Matthews’ delicate vocals accompanied solely by a guitar. The simplicity is what makes the track so stunning and has you craving more.
“A Million and One” dives into what it’s like to be taken for granted but also taking someone else for granted, not realizing that what you need may be right in front of you. Written with Elijah Blake, a mentor to Matthew’s who has penned hits including Usher’s “Climax” and Rihanna’s “No Love Allowed,” this new single is just a taste of what’s to come from Finn Matthew who is set to release new music over the next few months. In the meantime, give the track a spin in the player above.

Acclaimed R&B trio Bad Rabbits haven’t released new music in over two years, but just yesterday the band announced Mimi, a 7-track album set for release on August 10th. From the record comes their newest single titled “F on the J-O-B.” The track is in support of the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements, featuring an animated video that addresses sexual harassment in the workplace. Vocalist Fredua Boakye shares, “The song and the video shame and mock the men who feel entitled to sex just because they are attracted to a woman.”
The video also introduces fans to Mimi who’s described in a recent press release as a “fictional short-haired, dark-skinned, social media-obsessed, voluptuous vixen.” Her character is one that can be found as the center of the album as she represents a modern manic pixie dream girl.
You can check out the album art and track listing for Mimi below. Fans can also purchase a limited edition vinyl copy of “F on the J-O-B,” available for purchase on June 8th.
Mimi Track listing:
2. F on the J-O-B
4. Ain’t A Crime
5. Eyes On You
6. Dollars & Change
7. After Party
