1. Plain White T’s release new music video

Plain White T’s released a new music video for “Low.” The track is featured on the band’s latest album, Parallel Universe. “Everybody at times can feel a little bit depressed, inadequate or not ‘good enough,’” vocalist Tom Higgenson says. “Often, we search for something outside ourselves to fill that void and to make us feel better: more wanted, more confident, more beautiful.” They’ll be performing at several shows and festivals this year, and tickets can be found here.

2. Carousel Kings drop new single

Carousel Kings released a new track, “Code Breaker (Smile).” The song is the first single off their upcoming album, Plus Ultra, which is set to be released May 31. “We proposed a lot of ’80s/’90s youth culture for the video game show, slime-ery, cheesy infomercials, B-level horror movies and ‘dramatic’ film noir,” vocalist David Alexander says. “Outside of the visuals, the song references positivity and soul searching throughout, so we balanced lighthearted comedy [while] keeping fans on their toes with intricate songwriting.” Preorders for the new LP are available here.

3. Crown The Empire release live video
