Beats & Vibes

If 2019 was the year of late releases, farewell tours and final reunions, the early signs are that 2020 promises to be a year of musical and lyrical rebirth, with established bands taking on new challenges and rising stars set to make their mark on the global stage.

Theory of a Deadman: Say Nothing

31 January 2020

Say Nothing is the seventh studio album by the acclaimed Canadian rock band Theory of a Deadman. Known for their tongue in cheek rock songs like Lowlife and The Bitch Came Back, this recording gets serious as Tyler and the band tackle issues such as domestic violence and racism. The album continues their collaboration with Swedish music producer Martin Terefe, who oversaw the critically acclaimed album Wake Up Call. Expect a pop rock-infused style with a serious message.

Green Day: Father of All….

7 February 2020

The closing of a chapter and the beginning of something new, Father of All… might not appeal to all, but to die-hard Green Day fans it will be pure nirvana. With no specific theme, expect pure anarchy as Green Day take a pop at the current state of the corporate music scene. The first single, Father of All…, was released on 10 September 2019, alongside the announcement of the Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer. Green Day will play Singapore in March.

Banoffee: Look At Us Now Dad

21 February 2020

The first album by Australian rising star Banoffee, Look At Us Now Dad is an uplifting, optimistic journey that celebrates survival in the face of abuse and adversity. Featuring some notable collaborations, and co-produced by Banoffee and Yves Rothman, it is a hybrid of experimental club and pop music. “Each song uses human experience to talk about more complex concepts of addiction, obsession, heartbreak and resurrection,” says Banoffee. “Not to dwell in sadness, but to join hands.”
