It has been just over a month since the Warped Tour 2017 lineup was announced and a little less than two months until the festival kicks off in Seattle, Washington. I don’t know about you, but this festival always gets me hyped. Warped Tour 2015 standouts Jule Vera are back for another round this summer and, trust me, if you miss their set, you’ll regret it.

In the past, Jule Vera has described their sound as a “cinematic kind of alternative pop-rock”, but their sound is so chameleon-like that it’s hard to box them into one genre. With a new single out this past March and an album on the way, the band consisting of Ansley Newman (vocals), Jake Roland (guitar), Will Stacey (bass), Kyle “Hogarth” Horvath (drums), and Chase Haws (guitar) are about to steal the hearts of Warped Tour attendees across America.

Shortly after signing with Pure Noise Records in January of 2015, the band teamed up with Alternative Press magazine to release their first single “One Little String.” Their EP titled Friendly Enemies was released in June of the same year—just in time for Warped Tour—and the band quickly became a crowd favourite. Also in 2015, Jule Vera found themselves at #2 on Alternative Press’ “Best Music Videos of 2015 so far” and landed a spot on the magazine’s “100 Bands You Need to Know in 2015.”

2016 was the year that Jule Vera would open for a number of bands, proving their worth and earning their spot in the alternative music scene. After months and months of their fans begging for new music, Jule Vera ended the metaphorical drought by releasing their new single titled “Lifeline” a beautifully uplifting anthem for today’s youth about choosing your own destiny.

We predict that 2017 will be Jule Vera’s biggest year yet, as they are already getting the recognition they deserve. In fact, Jule Vera (along with rock band Lydia) is the first act to sign to Pure Noise Records and Sony Music’s newest lovechild, Weekday Records.  Be sure to stream “Lifeline” so you can sing along with them at a Warped Tour nearest you.

Can’t Swim!!!

We uh…wow, we wanted to write an article telling you about how this is Can’t Swim‘s 3rd track off their upcoming album, Fail You Again. We wanted to tell you that the album is out March 10th and we’re busy looking for ways to steal it immediately because we can’t wait another 16 days to listen to it. But all we’ve got for you is incoherent yelling and heavy breathing because…Can’t Swim!! Can do!! No wrong!!

The band released “Quitting” today and that’s all we’ve got to say. Can you wait and ask us again after we spend the next 24 hours binge listening until we hate it?

Do you want to just go with us here and listen to the new track? I don’t think you’re going to get much more out of us today. We were super professional with the previous announcements but uh…yeah, that’s out the window. We’re officially Far Too Excited™️️ to keep it together.

You can listen to the new track below and if you’ve got time after that, you can help us force the band to come visit us up North Of The Wall via Twitter.

Can’t Swim is a band we’ve been excited about since the day their EP dropped last February. We’ve patiently waited for news of their debut album, but we never could have foreseen the events of this morning.

First off, there’s the album. The band will be releasing their debut full length, Fail You Again, on March 10th through Pure Noise Records. We’ve already had a taste of what to come with the release of “Stranger” late last year, so we can’t wait to see what else-

Oh, wait. They released a new single today as well. How long until “We Won’t Sleep” is up on Spotify? Can’t wait to see the vi-

And there’s the video. Anything else you want to announce while you’re-

There’s officially a higher percentage of women in Can’t Swim than there are on the Reading & Leeds Festival lineup. In even more positive news, this new member does not come at the loss of another; original drummer Danny Rico has moved to guitar, while Andrea Morgan joins in her new role on the drums.

There’s nothing here that we aren’t excited about. Their 5 song EP still bangs one year after release without us getting sick of a single track, so we can’t wait to do it all again with a full album. Plus, from what we’ve heard so far… we’re in for something wonderful. You can preorder Fail You Again here.
