Panic! At The Disco lands highest charting single ever
Congratulations to one of my favorite bands, Panic! At The Disco, on climbing the charts to earn their highest charting single in their history!
High Hopes, the latest single from their 2018 album Pray for the Wicked, overtook the band’s previously highest charting song, I Write Sins Not Tragedies, which peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 7 in 2006.
Last week, High Hopes took the number 6 spot and looks to climb even higher next week. You can watch the full video for High Hopes below ↓
COIN announce first leg of 2019 world tour
After debuting several singles over the last few months, Nashville native indie pop band COIN has announced their first tour dates for 2019. The band will trek across the United States as they prepare to release a brand new album that is set for release next year.
In an interview with Billboard, lead vocalist Chase Lawrence said, “We’re just trying to work on something completely different and deconstruct what we’ve known our live show to be…just doing something that makes the crowd feel involved a little more than just watching four people on a stage.”

The 1975 release new album, music video
The 1975 have hit another hot streak with their release of the new record, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. The band is headed for a third Number 1 on the Official Albums chart. Reviews for the album have raved about the band’s new direction and even compared to being the “OK Computer” for this generation.
The band also debuted another new music video. This time it’s for It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You), which paid a great tribute to the Talking Heads. You can watch that video below ↓
