Foxygen is on Tour! Win Tickets!
Foxygen began 2017 with a brand new LP, titled Hang, the band's fifth full length record since forming in 2005. The band referred to it as their "first proper studio album," but then again, it seems like Foxygen has always liked to do things in reverse. On their high school aged debut, they had insatiable curiosity for new sounds, so they bought instruments they didn't know how to play; despite this, the duo still insisted on using them in their live shows. When they traveled in 2015 surrounding their last record, they called it their Farewell Tour, implying that they may very well cease existing once they returned home. But they are most certainly back, playing dates across the country, supported by bedroom pop up-and-comer Gabriella Cohen.See the full list of giveaways here!

The band constantly pushes forward, evolves, experiments and adapts, while staying true to their core. It’s with this attitude that Pop Evil succeeded in building a lasting bond with their fans.See the tour dates here!
Whiskey Myers Take Their Country Rock Act on the Road!
Whiskey Myers is an American Southern rock/Country group from Palestine, Texas. What the music sounds like is raw, visceral emotion: pride, faith, desire, defiance. As a result, Whiskey Myers' music fits neatly into no genre. Sure, it's heavily influenced by country music ("My first record was 'The Pressure Is On' / Ain’t it funny how your life can change with a song" Cannon sings on "Hank"), but the band credits everything from Alan Jackson and Waylon Jennings to Led Zeppelin and Nirvana as inspiration.See the tour dates here!
