The Generators Life Gives Life Takes

Review by Shannon Shumaker I’ll first start off by saying it is an extremely pleasant surprise to come across an album that just oozes raw, unbridled talent and passion, and I believe that it’s safe to say that after ten studio albums, The Generators have still got it. Because while I’m not really one for straight-up punk, (I think it’s something I really have to be in the mood for) The Generators’ newest album Life Gives-Life Takes is something I can really get into. The entire album is timeless, because while it’s new, if you would have given it to me…

Partially because of that…

LA punk band The Generators released their 10th – you read it right, tenth – album, Life Gives-Life Takes today, and we got the chance to chat with vocalist Doug Kane about the band’s journey over the years, what keeps them motivated, and the changing music scene. For Life Gives-Life Takes was there a certain direction that you guys decided that you wanted to go, or was it something that just happened naturally?I think the record turned out how we were hoping it would, or maybe even better. Its a good thing not to force music. It has to hopefully come in a natural way. If you start…

Review by Dillon CraderI guess I will just cut right through the bullshit and say that Being As An Ocean’s new album How We Both Wondrously Perish kills.

How We Both Wondrously Perish is a very matured album compared to the bands previous album Dear…

Personally, I’m a bit excited myself since most of the bands on the ticket I have not heard of (I’m here for Architects). So I’m hoping to be blown away and if not, well there’s a bar inside and I have a twenty… The first opening band is I the Mighty from California and…
