It’s not easy to keep track with music news especially when you make yourself a busy bunny, so we check it all out regularly and make a selective list of the new stuff that you could most likely be into. That’s the great stuff you missed!
The below list mostly consists on stuff from the end of 2016, but we all know end of the year is busy and everyone got caught in the holiday madness, so here are the music things we think you should check out before kicking off the year for real.
Here’s the great stuff you missed.
WATERMEDOWN – Locks and Blinds (music video)
This is Watermedown‘s new single, which you can stream or buy on all the digital platforms you can think of. Released through Equal Vision Records.
2. THIS PUP MUSIC VIDEO
Everyone ever has probably watched and cry over this countless times, so it’s probably not great stuff you MISSED, but it’s GREAT stuff anyway. Check it out. NOW!
ICYMI, PUP are playing European headline shows this month! More info here -> If this tour doesn’t kill you, sing along with PUP.
3. Columbus – Say What You Want (ft. guest vocals from ROAM and Like Pacific)
Columbus is our new favorite pop punk band, period. The Australians have dropped in 2016 the most enjoyable EP we’d heard in a while and we’ve had it on repeat for quite a while. Columbus did their first UK tour just a few months ago and even recorded a new version of their song Say What You Want, with their british and american tour mates ROAM and Like Pacific. You can listen to it right here.
Columbus – ‘Spring Forever’, out now via UNFD.
4. Can’t Swim – Stranger
While still on tour in Europe with Boston Manor, Can’t Swim have released this new song (which comes with a music video) and we can only recommend you to enjoy it, as many times as you can.
We cannot wait for more new music from Can’t Swim!
5. Ocean Grove drop new single / announce new album
The weirdest band of the year have announced the release of ‘The Rhapsody Tapes’ (via UNFD) just before the end of the year. The album should see the light on February 3rd, 2017 and this is a new track taken off it. Listening to Ocean Grove is our guilty pleasure and could become yours soon.
6. COUNTERFEIT sign to Xtra Mile Recordings / Release new song
British rockers Counterfeit have released a new song called Addiction (those of you who have already seen the band live might know the track already) and announced a signing a new deal with Xtra Mile Recordings. New record is therefore expected and european shows are announced already!
7. Oh, Sleeper reveal new track
December was also the month Oh, Sleeper came back with their first song in ages (4 years, more precisely.) Here is Oxygen.
8. Devil Sold His Soul – The Reckoning
Devil Sold His Soul have a new (and very good) single out and all the benefits they will collect from this song will go straight to The Marlets Hospice. Not only this is for a great cause, but the music itself is also great. Listen / donate!
9. Bad Sign – Intermission
2016 was the year we saw Bad Sign finally blossoming. Now signed to Basick Records, the guys have released yet another single called Intermission, whose music video you can watch right here. We have the feeling this new year is going to be a big one for Bad Sign and we can’t wait to see what the band has in store for us!
10. Set Things Right – The Puppet Show
Set Things Right are set to release a new, third album ‘Deathwish’.
Here’s the second single taken from it. ICYMI, the band will be hosting an album release show on February 18th, 2017. More details at the following link : Set Things Right – Album release show.
11. Wars – The Art of Not Knowing
Fans of metal / hardcore, Wars will be releasing their debut album, this coming January 27th and here’s a foretaste for what you could expect.

12. Mountains To Move – Adieu
Last but not least, for this first GSYM installment of the year, are the belgians in Mountains To Move. If you’re into emo things, then this track’s for you. It comes with a cool video, too. Enjoy!
