i made for something new

i'am a dreamer, be who you are
love pizza and getting werd
On her deathbed, my mom told me to keep on playing 
music, to go for my dreams. That's pretty much why I
kept on doing it.

Four Year Strong new EP

Setelah hampir 3 tahun vakum dari industri musik, akhirnya pada 22 Juli Four Year Strong,  American pop punk/melodic hardcore band asal Worcester, Massachusetts ini resmi merilis mini album mereka yang berjudul “Go Down In History”. Mini album ini dirilis melalui label rekaman baru mereka yang bernama Pure Noise Records yang belum lama ini menandatangani kontrak dengan Four Year Strong.

Album terakhir Four Year Strong yang terakhir kali dirilis adalah “In Some Way, Shape, Or Form” album ini dirilis pada 8 November 2011 melalui major label mereka Universal Motown Records. Namun karena ada beberapa masalah dalam proses produksi dan Four Year Strong merasa sangat diatur oleh major label mereka waktu itu, akhirnya mereka memutuskan untuk keluar dari Universal Motown Records. Sampai pada akhirnya pada tahun 2014 mereka dikontrak oleh Pure Noise Records.

Mini album “Go Down In History” ini adalah rilisan kedua mereka yang dirilis tanpa pemain synth dan key mereka yang keluar pada 3 April 2011 yaitu Josh Lyford. Dalam mini album ini terdapat 5 lagu. Dimana menurut saya materi-materi lagu di album ini Four Year Strong kembali menjadi lebih heavy seperti di album-album terdahulu mereka. Dimana bisa dedengar banyak breakdown dan chord gitar khas Four Year Strong.

Lagu-lagu dalam mini album ini diakui oleh Dan O’Connor (Gitaris/vokalis) dari Four Year Strong ini adalah materi yang sangat baik yang mereka pernah tulis. Karena selama mereka vakum selama kurang lebih  3 tahun mereka menghabiskan waktu cuti mereka bersama masing-masing keluarganya dan membiarkan sesi penulisan lagu terjadi secara organik tanpa ada tekanan dari pihak manapun.

Proses pembuatan ini juga menarik seperti yang dikatakan Dan O’Connor “We just got in a room and let everything flow naturally. It felt like there was a new energy back in our playing.” mini album ini seluruh prosesnya (recording,mixing,mastering) ditangani oleh The Machine Shop yang juga pernah menangani band besar seperti Fall Out Boy dan ETID. Video clip single pertama mereka yang berjudul “Go Down In History” telah mereka rilis di youtube.

Saat musim panas ini Four Year Strong sedang dalam rangkaian Vans Warped Tour bersama band-band seperti Breathe Carolina, The Summer Set, Neck Deep dll.

thatguyswiftie13[Taylor] came out and I was screaming that I loved her and if I could get a picture with her and she was like “of course come over!” And then she hugged me and I was shaking so badly so she was like “do you want a selfie?” And I was like “yeah” but I was shaking so badly so she was like “here let me take that” and so she took the phone and took a picture and then she was like “haha I have long arms.”

Hilariously Photos of People Posed as If They Have Just Fallen by Sandro Giordano

instagram

Photographer Sandro Giordano has a darkly hilarious series on Instagram titled ‘In Extremis (bodies with no regret)’ featuring people posed as if they have just fallen. Meticulously-staged and styled, he captures his subjects in awkward and uncomfortable-looking positions while surrounded by their belongings, always with an object in hand. According to Giordoan, the series comments on the willingness of people to place their material possessions before their own safety. He was inspired to start it after a bicycle accident where he lost 30% of the function in his right hand, because he didn’t let go of the object he was holding as he fell.

I will never forget what it is like to look out at 40,000 of you, who seem to know the words to every single song we’ve played tonight. Would you sing for me now as L O U D L Y as you possibly know how?
