It is December 16th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The band receiving the featured spot this week is originally from a place over twenty five thousand kilometres from Kitchener, Ontario. Despite the distance of where they are located, Tonight Alive have impressed people [literally] all around the world.
From Sydney, Australia, Tonight Alive, a five member pop/punk style band, have taken the music industry by storm since forming in 2008. Over the course of [only] four years the group has managed to snag contracts with both Sony Records Australia and the well known Fearless Records. On top of that, Tonight Alive have toured in over twenty three tours from 2009 to 2012, with three more already lined up for 2013.
On February 14th 2012 Jenna McDougall (vocals), Whakaio Taahi (guitar / backing vocals), Jake Hardy (guitar), Cam Adler (bass / backing vocals) and Matt Best (drums) released their debut record. Titled What Are You So Scared Of? the record is full of incredibly catchy, and phenomenally written, songs. And, this week's 'Song of the Week' is the third track found on their record.
Starlight, this week's 'Song of the Week', was a song that caught my attention very quickly. Infact, I will be honest and say the entire record blew me away. The true and relatable lyrics provided by each song, and overall catchy rhythms, certainly creates one heck of a record. Plus, this band has over one hundred thousand fans on Facebook, proving their fans adored their release as much as I did.
Although their next tour, set to start on February 3rd 2013, is taking place in Europe, you still have a chance to catch this band very soon. In late 2012 it was announced that Tonight Alive will be taking part in the 2013 Warped Tour. And, it is said they will be playing the entire festival, which beings in June 2013.
So, if you have yet to see this band live, do not worry, they will be hitting a city near you likely this year. And, in the meantime check out What Are You So Scared Of? and get ready as Tonight Alive will definitely be exploding even more throughout 2013.
