4 Rock Bands Returning With New Music In 2017

Over the past several months, my favorite bands have been teasing that new music was in the works. Whether it was short clips of studio sessions or potential collaborations, my anticipation was growing high. In case you missed any recent updates, here are album announcements from a few of the top bands millennials — like myself — have grown up listening to since middle school, with one very underrated lesser-known band added to the list as well.

1. Paramore

Paramore’s fifth album “After Laughter” arrives in merely two weeks, on Friday, May 12th. This new album will be released four years after their self-titled album from 2013. With bassist Jeremy Davis’ exit from the band at the end of 2015, fans have rejoiced at the return of former drummer Zac Farro for the upcoming album. On April 19th, “Hard Times,” their lead single from the album was released along with the music video, arguably surprising viewers with their upbeat ‘80s pop track. Is it time to say goodbye to their rock roots? Never. Nonetheless, I’m very intrigued by what’s to come with the new sound of 2017 Paramore. (Still shocked by Hayley’s new platinum blonde hair).

2. Linkin Park

From nu metal to rap metal, Linkin Park has revisited their original rock sound time and time again throughout the years. However, with their seventh album “One More Light,” following 2014’s “The Hunting Party,” there are a lot of mixed reviews amongst anticipating fans. Their first single off the album, “Heavy” featuring pop singer Kiiara, was released back in February, subsequently followed by immense criticism. For countless fans of their original sound, the band seems to be embracing mainstream music and modern pop, which is the direction none of us expected them to go. With several features on the upcoming album, the new album definitely challenges their fanbase and displays a different side to the band. Maybe Chester really is tired and/or done with screaming? I hope there will still be plenty of raps from Mike to look forward to. We’ll have to see if all the songs on the album sound more or less similar to “Heavy.” “One More Light” will be released on Friday, May 19th.


First off, if you’ve never heard of this band, please go check out this article I wrote about them last year and give their debut album a listen. As of earlier today, PVRIS have announced the release of their sophomore album which will arrive this summer. The follow up to 2014’s “White Noise,” the new album will be released on August 4th and is titled “All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell.” Today, the band also shared the video for their first single off the album, “Heaven.” PVRIS will be touring with Muse and 30 Seconds To Mars in North America throughout the summer and early fall. The two headlining bands have yet to announce any official details about their upcoming albums.

4. Fall Out Boy

On Saturday, April 27th, Fall Out Boy announced their upcoming seventh album, titled “Mania.” Following 2015’s “American Beauty/American Psycho,” the new album will be released in early fall, on September 15th. The lead single off the album, “Young and Menace,” was released on April 27th along with the music video, following both the album and tour announcement. The single has also received mixed criticism, which is arguably a departure from what fans of Fall Out Boy would expect from the band. Separating from their well-known punk and emo sound, the song is influenced by EDM and shows that the band is open to experimentation. As many would agree, it definitely takes the listener by surprise, which seems to be a trend among the other aforementioned bands as well.

Go check out the newest singles from these bands and soon enough the albums will be within our grasp!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
