Something to Check Out

In 2009, the Emo/Punk band: Fall Out Boy launched into an indefinite hiatus. Since then all the band’s members have been working on new projects. Pete Wentz became a member of The Black Cards, Andy Hurley and Joe Trohman are working with The Damned Things, and Patrick Stump has gone solo. Stump has mashed up electronic music, rock, funk, and R&B with punk to form his own genre called “Dance Punk”. Having not worked on any new Fall Out Boy material, Stump has found the time to release an EP and a full length album. His EP: Truant Wave, was released this February and the album: Soul Punk, just hit stores this past Tuesday. The album’s single “This City” has an original version and remix which features rapper Lupe Fiasco which definitely is one of the reasons that Soul Punk is Something to Check Out.

Something Notable

Jane’s Addiction is back with their new album called The Great Escape Artist. This LP is the band’s first record since the release of Strays back in 2003. Jane’s Addiction has been around since the late 1980s and has held true to their Alternative Punk sound. They have had many radio hits such as “Stop”, “Jane Says”, “Been Caught Stealing”, “Mountain Song”, and most recently “Irresistible Force”. The new album features all of its long time personnel, such as famous guitarist Dave Navarro, and was produced and released under Capitol Records.
