Heavy Homecoming: Fine Fine Titans Return With New LP

Written by Eric Mitts | Monday, 16 November 2015 10:35 |

Determined to reignite the spark of West Michigan’s once high-volume heavy music scene, Grand Rapids’ Fine Fine Titans have returned with Renaissance, its first full-length album.

Rising from the ashes of the band’s combustible past, the new album stands as a new beginning for the post-hardcore band. The group has endured a lot of commotion since its 2010 genesis. 

Jared Knox and the Hägar Bombs countrify West Michigan

Written by Abigale Racine | Sunday, 01 November 2015 11:33 |

Local country band Jared Knox and the Hägar Bombs deliver an energetic, modern country sound that’s as enjoyable as the spicy, bitter German liquor its namesake is borrowed from. The group is making a name for itself, too — at least, until Jägermeister finally decides to fire off a cease-and-desist letter.

Written by Eric Mitts | Sunday, 01 November 2015 11:32 |

Although the new movie Fan Girl is a wish-fulfillment for steadfast All Time Low fans, it’s also an astonishing honor for the chart-topping pop punk band. “To have a movie out there that loosely revolves around us means we’ve had some kind of impact on society as a whole,” All Time Low vocalist/guitarist Alex Gaskarth told Revue. “That is crazy to think about.”

Always Here: How Sublime’s Legacy Refuses to Die

Written by Eric Mitts | Friday, 30 October 2015 13:41 |

There are moments when Rome Ramirez still can’t believe what he gets to do for a living.

A Sublime fan, first and foremost, he would’ve never dreamed that he’d get to front his all-time favorite band, let alone sing the immortal words of beloved Long Beach icon Bradley Nowell for a whole new generation of fans.

So to get up onstage now, with one of his boyhood idols-turned closest friends playing bass beside him, he can only feel grateful yet aware of the huge shoes he has to fill every night.  

The Unstoppable Evolution of GWAR

Written by Josh Spanninga | Friday, 30 October 2015 13:30 |

Life isn’t always easy for interplanetary warriors trying to bide their time on Earth. Just ask Pustulus Maximus, lead guitarist for GWAR, the legendary shock-rock band. 

“I started out my tenure on this planet very disheveled. I just wanted to drink bottles of Jim Beam and lay in some gutters.” Pustulus explained. “Now I’m very disheveled.”
