Posted July 21, 2009 by Megan Rondeau

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. Entries must be received by July 29 and winners will be notified by July 31.

    Only one 90’s song?! That’s difficult!
    Ok, I think I’m going to have to go with Meat Loaf’s “I would do anything for love” because it holds some great memories for me.

    While it wasn’t released as a single, Slow Summer Dancin’ (One Summer Night) was on the Beach Boys Summer In Paradise CD from 1992. This is my favorite! Thank you for the contest!

    Probably would have to be something by Backstreet Boys, like Larger Than Life (though that was released in ’99, so it’s hardly 90s), or Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana.

    My favorite song from the 90s would probably be “Come Out And Play” by The Offspring or “Freak On A Leash” by KoRn.
    I love Set Your Goals, though! And my best friend’s favorite band is Four Year Strong, so this would be a great gift for him :)

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
