Catfish And The Bottlemen have announced a North American headlining tour and Summer Sonic has released a star-studded festival lineup—not to mention Dave Grohl will be taking part in a unique Grammy performance! Check out the news you might have missed today below!
1. Dangerkids have premiered their new video for “Kill Everything.”
Fresh off the release of their sophmore album Blacklist this past Friday, Ohio's Dangerkids have put out their first music video for “Kill Everything,” debuting earlier today over at Billboard.
The rap/rock group noted that they've adapted their sound from many bands from the 2000's of the same genre, but also add that many contemporary acts have influenced their evolution from their 2013 record, Collapse.
Regarding the new video, rapper Tyler Smyth told Billboard, “It crystalizes the moment that we decided to stop listening to other people's advice and to start trusting ourselves. We developed this concept of us as the living dead, something essentially unkillable and unwilling to be stopped, and used that metaphor to fuel the lyrics. The message and upbeat feel made it the perfect introduction to what we affectionately refer to as ‘the new chapter’ for Dangerkids.”
2. Catfish And The Bottlemen have revealed dates for their North American headliner!
Catfish And The Bottlemen have quite the year ahead of them, as the four-piece from the UK will be spending most of their year in the states. The band has newly announced dates for their North American headliner this spring in support of their second album The Ride, which was recently certified Gold in their home country. Tickets for the upcoming tour are available here.
The tour is bound to be a good one as it will feature some unique shows, including a shows at Brooklyn's newest venue Brooklyn Steel, the newly renovated House Of Blues Anaheim, and festival performances at Shaky Knees and Bottlerock. Not to mention their humongous stint with Green Day, which features new dates at Wrigley Field and the Rose Bowl! Very cool for these guys.
