2. Tigers Jaw release moving video for “Escape Plan”
“’Escape Plan’ is a song about feeling stuck in your old ways, and trying to find the courage to make changes to your life. Earlier this year, when Josh Coll (director) and I were first talking about video concept ideas, I had to cancel a few calls because my grandfather passed away. That got him thinking about conversations he had with his grandfather before he passed. He remembered talking about technology and how our generation relies on it so much. The video focuses on the juxtaposition between these beautiful cinematic ‘real life’ scenes and the stark, sterile, inferior virtual reality that the characters seem to want to escape to. Hopefully it's a reminder that the real world is beautiful and we should look up from our phones more often,” said Tigers Jaw's Ben Walsh about the single.
3. After supporting All Time Low on “The Young Renegades Tour,” The Wrecks announce first headline tour
They'll be joined by Vesperteen (Oct 24 – Nov 11), Mainland (Nov 5 – 19), and The Technicolors.
“We've never headlined a tour before,” says singer Nick Anderson. “I started this band less than two years ago as just an idea in my head. I'm humbled and honored that there is enough demand out there already for us to get on the road as a headlining band.

9. Beach Slang's James Alex announces Quiet Slang EP
The EP, A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings, features two Beach Slangs songs along with two covers. Check out the album art and track list below!
“I suppose we're all chasing something that resembles salvation, something that calms our bones. Maybe this is some small slice of that. Maybe it's not. Maybe it's chaos in soft clothes. Maybe it's frightened. Maybe it's fearless. Maybe it's both. Or maybe it's nothing. I don't know, but I think about this: one day I'm going to be dust. And when my soul splits, maybe this will be the thing that sneaks me through the gates. If not, well, those are the breaks,” said Alex about Quiet Slang.
