So far, I have to say that July has been a great month! I got to enjoy 4th of July fireworks and a vegan cookout, spend time on Warped Tour watching Hit the Lights and A Day to Remember, finally saw Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and today new albums from two of my favorite bands came out! Not only have Four Year Strong and Set Your Goals worked with peta2 before to stand up for animals, but they both had new albums hit stores today and are currently out on the road together in support of these releases.
This Will be the Death of Us is Set Your Goals‘ highly anticipated follow up to 2006’s Mutiny and their first since signing to Epitaph Records. As a huge fan of this band, I can say this album was definitely worth the wait! Tracks like “Summer Jam” and “The Fallen” are destined to be summer anthems, while songs like “Look Closer” and “Gaia Bleeds (Make Way for Man)” have a much more serious message, and definitely one that can be applied to animal rights.
Worcester, MA, natives Four Year Strong have looked to the past for inspiration for their new album, Explains it All, which is a cover album of ’90s songs. I may have been a baby of the ’80s, but I grew up in the ’90s and some of these songs definitely hold a special place in my heart! Who else could pull off covering Smashing Pumpkins, Third Eye Blind, and No Doubt?
If you haven’t checked out these new jams yet, I suggest you get on it! And be sure to buy your tickets to the bands’ co-headlining tour before they sell out! Comment with your favorite song from the ’90s and two winners will be chosen at random to receive a copy of both bands’ new CDs.
