SPB premiere: "Maelstrom" by Colored Moth

SPB premiere: "Maelstrom" by Colored Moth

SPB is pleased to team up with Wolves and Vibrancy Records to share “Maelstrom” from the upcoming new record by Colored Moth, DIM.

The Berlin-based band will release DIM on August 29, a follow-up to 2016’s Fragmenting Tensions. The thirteen song record continues the band’s powerful, calculated and chaotic blend of noise rock, post-hardcore, and screamo that is alternately fierce and unhinged but with tempered emotion.

Check out “Maelstrom” now:

Pre-orders will be available next month.

A new band named Surrender has announced work on a full-length album later this year. The band features members of Crusades, The Creeps, and Steve Adamyk Band but is a departure in sound from those punk roots, instead focusing on synth-driven alt-pop that namedrops bands like Tears For Fears, New Order, and Chromatics. The band is currently mixing new material, including a duet with Jolie Lindholm (The Rocking Horse Winner/Dashboard Confessional/The Darling Fire fame and has three singles on various streaming platforms.

Here's "A Lifetime Away," which originally premiered at No Echo.

SPB premiere: "Forever" by Evening Standards

Evening Standards - World's End

Scene Point Blank has teamed up with Evening Standards to share “Forever,” a song from the band’s upcoming World’s End, out on June ...


When we were practicing this one, I would be riding my bike and singing the chorus all the time:
“We talk about it like it's old news/ but it's the hardest thing that we've been through/ It's safe to say we put our roots down here/ but come tomorrow we could disappear/ and plant some seeds along the way/ ask me and I'll stay/ forever and a day.”
It's really comforting. Every time we play it I think of the people who have held me up over the years when I needed it, and how I learned to come through for people. I think the three of us (and our community) love each other deeply, and argue like siblings, and walk through darkness, but at the end of the day it's just a matter of being together, making art, and loving each other.

The song balances warm pop melody along with underlying complex emotions such as dealing with pain and loss. Preorders are available from Let’s Pretend.

Upcoming shows:
May 25 @Blockhouse Bloomington, IN: LP release show with Wife Patrol
May 31 @Orbit Room Bloomington, IN: Evening Standards acoustic with Glitter Brains
July 26-28 @Do Ya Hear We Fest Chattanooga, TN
