American pop-punkers A Loss For Words have announced a headline tour across the UK this October/November in the run up to their set at this year’s Warped Tour UK. All dates of the tour are listed below:
American pop-punk act A Loss For Words have just released their new music video for ‘Pirouette’. You can watch it right now through the embed we’ve posted below:
Date: February 1st, 2012
Venue: Camden Koko, London
Support: Marmozets, Don Broco, A Loss For Words
For anyone who is unfamiliar with the Koko club in London, it is a fine establishment and is definitely more of a night club than a venue. However, on this occasion, it plays host the mighty Four Year Strong who more than threatened to blow the roof off of the place.
Easily becoming one of the biggest and strongest recruits in this generation’s pop-punk scene, Four Year Strong recently went on a headline stint across the UK with support from A Loss For Words and Don Broco. We were there at the Manchester date of the tour to witness these bands in action, and even got some photos of all three them doing their thing:
Date: January 29th, 2012
Venue: Academy 2, Manchester
Support: Don Broco, A Loss For Words
Ever since the release of ‘Rise Or Die Trying’ back in 2007, Four Year Strong have quickly become one of the forerunners in this generation’s pop-punk movement, bringing a rather crunchier and heavier hitting side to the genre than usual. Still sporting their almost trademark beards nearly five years on from this, their first headline run of the UK in 2012 proves the hype is going stronger than ever.
Boston pop-punkers A Loss For Words have been steadily making their way through the ranks over the past couple of years. They are one of the hardest working bands in the industry, and last year they released their third full-length album ‘No Sanctuary’, one of the finest pop-punk releases all year round. We caught up with vocalist Matt Arsenault to get the lowdown on the record, his thoughts on pop-punk today and more:
Originally set to support Four Year Strong early next year alongside A Loss For Words and Don Broco, pop-punk act This Time Next Year have announced they’ve sadly had to pull out, posting this official statement about the decision:
Release Date: October 24th, 2011
Label: Rise Records
Website: None available
Often the case can be that when you hear a brilliant album by one of your favourite bands and it doesn’t really do anything to aid their reputation as artists or seem to make them anymore well known, you can often end up feeling quite begrudged. This is the case regarding A Loss For Words‘ breath-taking 2009 classic, ‘The Kids Can’t Lose’, because as it turns out the kids can lose as AL4W appeared to be no more appreciated on the back of that release. Come the release of last year’s mediocre ‘Motown Classics’, the band seem to have taken some steps in the right direction and are now starting to grow having secured UK tours with Four Year Strong and Set Your Goals, as well as US tours with Dance Gavin Dance, Vanna and The Ghost Inside.
Two of pop-punk’s most promising acts, Such Gold and A Loss For Words, have announced details of a forthcoming split release through labels No Sleep Records and Mightier Than Sword. The release is set for a November 22nd 2011 date, with limited vinyl pressings to be made available black (100), yellow (450), and maroon marble (450) packaged with a limited edition t-shirt.
The release’s cover art and tracklsting can be viewed below:
