A lot happens in our scene each week. In an attempt to capture what you might've missed, we gather up noteworthy moments and package them in one convenient post every weekend. Check out this week's roundup below!
1. The Maine shared some cryptic new photos on social media, and everyone is trying to figure out what it could mean. What do you think they’re up to?

Listen to “Come and Get It”:
4. Boigirl unveiled the third video in their series on AP’s Facebook this week. Check out pop-rock/post-hardcore trio’s “Dream”:

8. Even though Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them isn't coming out for another month, we got a preview of what the official score of the movie is going to sound like on October 7.
While the beginning definitely sounds eerily similar to “Hedwig's Theme”, it quickly takes a turn and shows viewers that this won't be the same universe that we're used to after eight Harry Potter movies.
9. Andrew McMahon announces 7th annual Dear Jack Benefit

Please join me on November 11th at The Observatory in Santa Ana California to celebrate @DearJackHQ's 10th year serving the Adolescent and Young Adult cancer community. To help me recognize this important milestone I will be joined onstage by members of the Wilderness band, Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate. This will be a special night, spanning more than 16 years of music with the friends that helped me bring it all to life. Proceeds from this show will go to support DJF programs and partnerships.

10. 30 Seconds To Mars are teasing new music for 2017.
The band took to their Instagram posting six studio photos with the hashtag #marsiscoming2017. Lead singer, Jared Leto can be scene in the recording booth—so exciting!
11. We can stop listening to that Korn + Corey Taylor track “A Different World.” It now has a creepy music video. Watch:
12. Conspire announced their new album, The Scenic Route, to be released Nov. 11, 2016. Listen to the first single, “1971”:
Here’s what frontman Parker Armstrong had to say about “1971”:
“’1971’ is about learning lessons from humanity's low points. Different forms of oppression seem to stay alive cross-generationally. When and where one is born never justifies carrying on hate for the sake of tradition. We all have potential to make a positive impact in the history books of tomorrow. This song isn't so much a cry for political correctness, but more a pursuit of personal convictions in sorting out the genuine from ghosts of our past.”
