Games We Play

Games We Play is the unapologetic, in-your-face pop punk band that sneaks up on you and quickly becomes the artist that takes over your daily playlist. This band’s punchy guitar riffs and stunning vocals make you want to flip a desk, quit your day job, and start a new life. No really, their music is that good… you have been warned.

After teasing their new track “Deadbeat” on the Games We Play TikTok account fans went crazy for the hard-hitting beats and hilariously relatable lyrics. Now, “Deadbeat” is fully released to the world, and you too can experience the punky pop bliss of Games We Play’s latest track. I got to chat with the Games We Play trio about their new song “Deadbeat”, their unexpected TikTok virality, and how pop punk is slowly but surely taking the mainstream music world by storm one song at a time.

House Parties

House Parties is a powerhouse band of kickass energy consisting of members Chaney Elaine (vocals), Spencer Trinidad (guitar), and Wesley K. Jones (drums). Teaming up with producer Seth Henderson (State Champs, Knuckle Puck, Real Friends) and frontman Derek DiScanio (State Champs) to bring you the band’s heaviest and anger-inducing single “Mid-Life Crisis” — the fed-up anthem about feeling like your entire world is falling apart in your twenties causing you to just breakdown and cry in your car. Their debut single, “Braindead”, from signing with Equal Vision Records, is a fast-paced banger that will make you want to headbang until your head falls off. This song is for anyone who knows someone who’s dumb. This electric band is best known for their catchy track “CAUTIOUS” — the song about facing the paranoia that people are out to get you and bring you down while struggling to live this giant thing we call life. Heavily inspired by bands such as Paramore, Stand Atlantic, Tonight Alive, and We Are The In Crowd, the band wants to bring you back with a nostalgic taste from the 2010’s with a modern twist. They continue to write relatable lyrics and catchy melodies that you can angrily finger-point to.
