UK Band Basement Releases 'Stigmata' Off Their New Album 'Beside Myself'

To get the full experience, I say that you need to watch the video at least once.

After signing to Fueled By Ramen in 2017 Basement is releasing their new album "Beside Myself" on October 12th. This album will be the second, with "Promise Everything" being their first, since going on hiatus in 2012.

Off of this new album they have already released their single "Disconnect," which you can listen to here. This song stays true to the emo-rock sound that occurs in their previous albums. By the end of "Disconnect" you won't be able to get their catchy lyrics, "my parodical son, what have you done, to make you feel this disconnect," out of your head. Speaking about "Disconnect," frontman Andrew Fisher said, "I felt it had something that made me want to play it again and really try and sing along," that it "doesn't try and be anything other than a straightforward rock song" and that's why they chose it to be the first track to be heard off of "Beside Myself."

Basement has also released their single titled "Stigmata" which you can listen to here. This song is different because, according to Fisher, writing this song was the first time he tried a different tuning and I believe that it has paid off well. On 'Stigmata' Fisher has also explained that "the lyrics are about the times when you feel incredibly low without any real reason, and how in those times you feel there is no other way to be." The animation that plays along with the audio of the song sets a scene for the story Basement is telling in this song that many people can relate to. To get the full experience, I say that you need to watch the video at least once.

You can pre-order and later purchase "Beside Myself" here and view their tour dates here.

"Be Here Now"

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Why go somewhere fun when you can go home?

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.
