Like Monroe have just released their new album, Things We Think, But Never Speak earlier this week and it has already been receiving a lot of high praise. I absolutely love the new energy on it and it is fierce!  They have also released a video for their song, The Hills which was directed by Aaron Marsh (Of Mice and Men).  “Working with Aaron was a no brainer,” says guitarist Chris Deckard.He was an easy choice! He was present during the writing process and has been a part of this project since the very beginning.” Check out the new video here: 

The song is also getting a lot of airplay on XM Sirius Octane channel and these guys truly deserve all the great attention. They are such a hard working band that put on adrenaline fueled sets. They have just wrapped up a tour with Eyes Set To Kill but I am sure we will be hearing about them heading out on another tour soon. These guys are unstoppable!   You can pick up the new album on iTunes here.

So make sure to check them out and follow them at all their social media sites.

Eyes Set To Kill have been busy with their non-stop touring. We caught their set at Aftershock and once again blew us away with their energy and killer music. The crowd went wild for them. Stay tuned as we will be bringing you full coverage of their set later this weekend. Meanwhile, they have just released a lyric video for their song, Little Liar . Check out the video here:

Alexia had this to say about the song, I started out writing this song about a woman named “Jodi Arias” who was on trial for brutally killing her boyfriend during the writing process of “Masks”. I found it fascinating that she kept denying and digging a hole deeper for herself by piling lies on top of lies. The whole world knew she was guilty but she still held on to her lies like she would eventually be set free. What I got from the whole story, was that the bigger the lie, the bigger the chances of getting caught. I think a lot of people, including me, have been in relationships where our significant-other has denied everything we have accused them of… only to learn that our gut instinct was correct when it’s too late.”

Eyes Set To Kill are currently out on tour with Nonpoint and then they will start their Little Liar Tour which is scheduled for October. The tour is sponsored by APP Presents and will also feature Scare Don’t Fear and Like Monroe.  They have been non stop touring since the release of their current album, MASKS which has become one of our favorites!

It is awesome to see Scare Don’t Fear on the lineup as well since they performed all summer long at Warped Tour on the Kevin Says stage. They have really been garnering a lot of well deserved attention after being the first band signed to KBB Records, the new label by Asking Alexandria’s Ben Bruce and Kyle Borman. Also on the lineup is one of our personal faves, Like Monroe who are ready to hit the road. They are definitely going to bring a lot of high energy kick ass sets to the tour.

We had told you about Like Monroe a couple months ago ( formerly A Candle Lit City) and brought you an interview with vocalist, Ty Johnson, read here.  Today we wanted to let you know that Like Monroe just released a lyric video for their new single “The Enemy”. Check it out here:

 

Lead singer Ty Johnson has been quoted before as saying,  “Every song for us has been about growth. We feel that we are writing our most thought provoking, yet inspiring music we have ever produced and we couldn’t be more proud”. This is one song to be proud of guys! Great job! I love this song. It has a great mixture of deep scream vocals meshed with hard rock vocals. along with bad ass drumming. The guitars are drop tuned heavy guitars that I always enjoy.

You can pick up the new single today through their website here.   So make sure to check them out and follow them at all their new social media sites.

I wanted to tell you about a great band that I have been enjoying, A Candle Lit City but they have recently announced a name change due to member changes and new music. So I would like to introduce you to an old friend A Candle Lit City which is now under the name Like Monroe. Coming from Houston, Texas they are delivering alternative rock with a  metal edge.  We recently interviewed lead vocalist Ty Johnson:

* * * * * * * * * * *

Music Junkie Press: Thank you so much for taking the time to talk with us here at Music Junkie Press. With the new name, will we be seeing a new album and if so, when might that be?

Ty Johnson: Yes, we currently have a few songs ready and as for a release date for the new album it’ll most likely be early Fall.

Music Junkie Press:  We are very excited about the new album and can’t wait for it! Can  you remember what was the first concert you ever went to?

Ty Johnson: My first concert was Silverstein, The Devil Wears Prada, A Day to Remember and Protest the Hero. I was 15 and I fell in love with the energy in that place. Still to this day one of the best shows I’ve  ever seen!

Music Junkie Press: That sounds like a great concert, I can only imagine the energy of that show.  How old were you when you started playing and can you remember what was the first song you sang or played in its entirety?

Ty Johnson: Wade and I started the band when we were freshmen in high school. The first song we ever got together and wrote was “Does one bullet?” haha. You won’t be able to find that one online, thank god.

Music Junkie Press: We may have to do some searching for one that one!! If Like Monroe could put together their dream lineup, what other three bands (living or dead) would you like to see on your lineup?

Ty Johnson: All of us would have to agree on Underoath. The Devil Wears Prada would be an awesome band to tour with. Lastly, I’m going to go with Katy Perry. If you’re reading this Katy. Call me.

Music Junkie Press: We will have to let Katy know where to reach you! Will Like Monroe still be heading out on the Texas Take Down Tour and if so, will you playing all your A Candle Lit City songs and anything new?

Ty Johnson:  Yeah and we are very excited to hit the road with our buddies Against the Archaic! We will be play two songs off the “A Light in the Dark” E.P and then two new ones as well.

Music Junkie Press:  That is going to be a great tour. If only we were in Texas! We will have to get one of our reps out there to check it out. If you could take any song from any other genre and turn it into your own style, which might it be?

Ty Johnson: Well I always thought it’d be cool to cover Drake’s song “Started from the bottom”. Its really catchy and always gets stuck in my head.

Music Junkie Press: That is a good one and I can see how you can change it up and give it your own style. If I could peak into your Ipod/playlist what would the next three songs be on shuffle?

Ty Johnson: Fit for a King – Warpath, The Story so Far – Bad Luck and Willie Nelson – Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain

Music Junkie Press:   I love the variety you have. Lastly, do you have anything else you would like to share with our audience?

Ty Johnson: We are excited to push on and start a new identity with a new name and image. In the next few days we will be posting an introduction video and go a little more in depth with what has been happening. We are excited to start this new chapter for us, now that we’re continuing on a new path we cant wait to take whoever is coming along with us.

You all have played such an important role in this, and each and everyone of you are as important as we are, you are what keeps us going. We hope we get to meet everyone of you on tour, and also thank you so much to everyone who has ever supported us, bought or downloaded a CD, merch, or came to a show. You have no idea how much everything meant to us. Nothing makes us feel anywhere close to the feeling that music gives us. We have been insanely blessed to be able to do what we have done with A Candle Lit City and we think it’s time that we wrap up this chapter in our lives.

We are sad to lay A Candle Lit City to rest, but are very excited for what is next in this new chapter and what is in store for LIKE MONROE!

Music Junkie Press:   Thank you so much Ty. We are all here to support you. It brings to mind my favorite quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. ” 

You are doing just that and I think it is exciting! I trust that all A Candle Lit City fans and your new ones are here to support you and the band during this change.  We will share the introduction video when it is out and let everyone know where to find Like Monroe.

* * * * * * * * * * *

So make sure to check them out and follow them at all their new social media sites. We will keep you updated when we get the video introduction and updates as to the new record. If you are in Texas don’t miss them on their Texas Takedown Tour where they will be playing with Against the Archaic.

Tour
