Weekends

Thanks to my mom and dad for raising me on Rock N Roll, I have ventured from Chicago to come rock out with the best of Iowa. If you're trying to find me outside the studio your best bet will be front row at a concert, behind a camera lens, or hidden away behind a book :)

  • In this awesome video below that was posted to Breaking Benjamin's Twitter this morning, they tease a tour for this Summer! 1 second clips of Five Finger Death Punch, Nothing More and Bad Wolves can be seen, showing us this tour is going to have some badass support. No more details have been released, but hopefully they have a stop in Iowa.

  • A week or two ago I shared a video of an Olympic Skating Duo performing to Disturbed's cover of Sound of Silence.

  • April 13th is the official release date for Ember, the sixth studio album from Breaking Benjamin. The first single the band shared from the album titled Red Cold River brought us back to the heavier day's of Breaking Benjamin and this newest tune, Blood fits right into the same category. I am still a little surprised and disappointed that they did not play any new songs while in Iowa on February 9th, but I am still looking forward to this new album! Enjoy their new single below.

  • I have stumbled upon another badass old school performance! Bush started in 1992 and 2 year's later they released probably their biggest hit to date, Glycerine. The tune can be found on the band's debut album Sixteen Stone which came out in '94. Enjoy a young Gavin Rossdale and his band's performance from 1996 below!
