Looking for not only some great music to add to your playlist, but some that you can hear live? Well, look no further than The FAIM. This four-piece alternative pop band from Perth, Australia has some jams and is currently on a North American tour with Andy Black.

The band is composed of Josh Raven on lead vocals, Sam Tye on guitar, Stephen Beerkens on bass and keys and Linden Marissen on drums and percussion. A few months ago the band finished up their first ever headline tour in Australia and Europe which resulted in multiple sold-out shows, which comes as no surprise.

"Saints of the Sinners" was the band's debut single and they sure came in with a bang. The single was written with the help of musician and producer, John Feldmann and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz. After doing some digging I've discovered that the track is about not letting anyone or anything stand in the way of who or where you want to be. I feel that was such a fitting debut song for a band that has worked as hard as The FAIM has to be where they are today since coming together in 2014.

Since being signed to BMG music, The FAIM have been making waves in the music industry and have had to opportunity to learn from and co-write songs with not only Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz but blink-182's Mark Hoppus, Twenty One Pilot's Josh Dun and 5 Second of Summer's Ashton Irwin. They also earned a spot as a supporting act on tours with Sleeping With Sirens, Against The Current and PVRIS as well as playing multiple festival staples.

The FAIM currently have some jams released that will have you up on your feet and groovin' in no time. A few include, "Summer Is a Curse," "Make Believe," and "Fire." They also recently dropped their newest single, "Amelie," which is a track that you don't want to miss out on. The band will be releasing their first full-length album this fall so definitely keep an eye out for that!

If I had to pick a track that stands out to me the most it would have to be "A Million Stars" from the band's 2018 "Summer Is a Curse" EP. Since stumbling across the song I instantly added it to my playlist and have been playing it non-stop since. The track not only has great lyrics but has a sort of reggae feel to it and definitely forces you to bop along.

The FAIM are just about halfway through their North American tour with Andy Black, but they still have shows in many great cities to come. If they are playing at a city near you I highly recommend that you and some friends check it out for a fun and energetic time!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
