We’re having a Music Monday double feature today because there is so many good albums coming out soon!
It’s our favorite time of year here at Z!NG REVOLUTION (aka MusicSkins), Punk Goes… is only a couple of months away from release! This year’s album compilation’s track list was released late last week which you can see below. Look out from some long time players like Mayday Parade, Forever The Sickest Kids, Breathe Carolina and The Maine with what looks like some awesome covers of some of the biggest pop songs from today, as well as some classics! The Maine’s track of Girl’s Just Want To Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper (which will feature Adam Lazzara of Taking Back Sunday) is the one I’m most excited for!
Check out Upon This Dawning’s cover of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe!
Also on this year’s roster are up and coming bands like SECRETS who released their debut album this year. Issues includes ex members of Woe, Is Me, and they will be tracking Justin Bieber’s Boyfriend. You can find a small clip of that circulating YouTube.
