Team Pagano

disregard-thefootsteps:

I just want to talk about Brandon Pagano for a minute. He’s in a band called Handguns. He also is one of the best people to ever exist, in my opinion. He lost a friend today and that’s what the tweet about prevention is for. In addition to mourning his loss, which I am sorry for and I hope Brandon is alright, he tweets this so someone can get help; he cares, about his fans and about people in general. He also tweeted about what was going on in Ferguson and his outrage with it. He designed a shirt to donate all profits to the ACLU.
I have seen Handguns live before, but unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to talk to them. Hopefully I’ll see them again this fall and I’ll be able to tell Brandon what an amazing person I think he is. handgunsband

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

A lot of things go on behind the scenes in the music industry. Sure, the musicians themselves are bearing the brunt - being the performers and all. Then further down the line, you have managers and lawyers and merch guys. It’s undeniable that music brings people together. Sometimes, you don’t have…

POZ Track-By-Track: Sudden Suspension - Basement Songs

Sudden Suspension released Basement Songs on May 3rd. PropertyOfZack is happy to be hosting a Track-By-Track on the meaning behind the songs for fans. Pick up your copy here and check out the meaning behind each track below!

Okay, umm… Where should I start this? ‘Basement Songs’ is really solid in a lot of ways, it’s definitely a lot darker than our last EP. As far as themes go, I guess you could say it’s about feeling helpless. Things happen, and you waste hours trying to think of what you could have done differently. You think back and sort of get lost in the past. It’s fucked up how things end. But they do end, and you just have to figure out how to move on.

January
This is just an intro track, it goes with the first song, but I’ve always kind of hated long intros, so we just made it a seperate track. That way you can listen to it if you want, or just play the short 1:50ish song without it, and get stoked on that. The title January has to do with everything going on in the song it leads into. A bunch of stuff that happened in, well obviously, January. 

In Knots
Lyrically, this song was a lot different than what I usually do. I wasn’t that worried about rhyme scheme and just wrote a bunch of things down when I was really upset. But it’s very real I guess you could say? It almost comes off as angry? It sort of freaks me out in that sense. Essentially you could sum up the song by saying, “I don’t know what I did to mess this up, but it still kills me.” Writing is really great therapy. Performing is even better. You get to just yell about all your problems, and people actually sort of enjoy it. It’s rad.
