Scientists Of Sound Announce Double Vinyl Concept Album With New Video

It’s been four years since the release of Scientists of Sound’s award winning album Electric Scissors. A lot has happened since then. The world has changed, and not necessarily for the better. Every day the apocalypse is looking like a better option. Fast food, Trump, and the American Dream are out. Geiger counters, hoarding tinned food, and Henry David Thoreau are very in. While there’s still time to celebrate, Scientists of Sound are releasing their new album, The Beginning of the Beginning of the End, along with a video trailer to know what we can expect in our shiny, new, post-apocalyptic lives.

It’s an opportunity for events to secure sponsorship and for sponsors to take advantage of a captive audience. Too often, that means a monopoly being purchased by the company with the deepest pockets, selling their disappointing fizzy rice water at inflated prices to people with no other options.

New Music: Alert The Medic Release ‘Let Them Have Their Fun’

Let Them Have Their Fun is an unexpected rejuvenation of Alert The Medic’s sound that no one saw coming.

The band has an extra jump in their step that will suck you into following their rhythm, with vocalist Ryan MacDonald’s infectious voice making it mandatory to sing along from the first chorus onward.
