Graphic Novel + Band + Vampires= Perfect Teeth


By: Lauren Miller


Any graphic novel fans out there? I just got a link for a FREE download of the new graphic novel Perfect Teeth. The novel was written by Less Than Jake drummer Vinnie Fiorello. 


The graphic novels follows a music group of vampires who make it big once they sign with a major record label.


You can download the graphic novel for free here


In the novel the band makes it big with the song "Perfect Match," which the writers decided to make into a real life song, which you can hear over at AbsolutePunk.net.


Let me know what you think about the Graphic novel & song. 

New Album Alert: Love Stories and Other Musings

By: Lauren Miller


This new album alert is for the rock fans. Check it out, multi-platinum rock band Candelbox has a new album out April 3rd (next week). 


If you don't know much about the band check out some info below from a press release: 



Produced by Ken Andrews (Pete Yorn, A Perfect Circle, Tenacious D, Beck), Love Stories & Other Musings features nine new tracks and will include five bonus tracks, re-records of hits including "Far Behind" and "Cover Me." Pre-order for the new album is available at 

The enthusiasm for this new record is not just reserved for the fans, "Years ago I read something that changed the way i look at EVERYTHING! It struck so deeply that I have never forgotten it. It simply stated, "without music, life would be a mistake." I've never forgotten it, even when i was struggling to find a song or a melody it kept me searching and frankly I could not imagine my life without it [music]" says lead vocalist and co-founder, Kevin Martin. "This record for me is no mistake, it is our music and our love for what a great gift we have been given. Love Stories & Other Musings is a new direction for us and I couldn't be happier to share it with our fans."

"I haven't felt this way about a release from Candlebox since our first record. The feeling for this record is both refreshing and stimulating," said guitarist Peter Klett. "I can't be more excited to release this music to the fans who have been with us for so long."

After signing to their new label AudioNest/Fontana, Candlebox are carving their own role in today's modern music scene, thanks to the support of their loyal fans. They have spent much of the past 5 years playing stateside and abroad for troops and appearing at festivals on multiple continents.



Check out a preview of the album's vibe from their single "Believe In It" embedded below.

In a press release about the single band members Tay and Jordan talks about their experience filming the video.

I'm A Girl Who Loves Acoustic Music

BY: Lauren Miller


This week Warped Tour announced the addition of an official acoustic stage for this year's tour. The stage will showcase the local, up and coming punk/indie/folk talent in an atmosphere more akin to a basement show making the experience more intimate and allowing for fans to get closer to the bands.

Check out this video below, from the Warped site, featuring Brian Marquis talking about the stage.

Who's excited to see this new stage? Leave me love in the comments.

American Horror Story Update

BY: Lauren Miller

I can only assume that maybe some of my readers are as obsessed with American Horror as I am and if not, oh well. I was searching the internet last night and came across an article with some new news about the upcoming second season of the popular show. I found more great news about some of our favorite cast members making a return to the show.

According to E! online Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Lily Rabe will be returning for a second round of the hit horror show. (Tate is coming back!)

According to the Huffington Post article I read they will be playing characters who are opposite of the characters they played in Season 1.

I've also read that the actual horror compenent may be switched up this season. Rather than focusing on the ghost aspect from last season the writers will be exploring a different aspect of horror. You can read more about the future of Season Two at The Hollywood Reporter.

Basically I made this post because, well, my man Tate (yes, I know he's not going to be Tate, but still!) is coming back for round two! Let's go October!

What do you want to see from the second season of American Horror? Leave me love!
