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"

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.
