The song is from their forthcoming studio album ‘Old Soul’ – expected to be released 16th September in the UK. Don`t you worry, US and Canadian fans because the band just announced their signing to Razor and Tie and you , too, will get the album on the 17th September!
‘Boston Square’ is the best thing happened today. I`m loving the new, matured sound, the musical transformation –that, I believe, is partly the influence of the new members of the band – is brilliant and the vocals sound better than ever. I find it hard ot imagine but if someone, for some reason, didn`t believe they were good enough to support Bruce Springsteen this summer until now, sure this song will change their mind.
Deaf Havana is out playing shows at Slam Dunk festival, doing a headlining UK tour in October and hopefully the States can get a taste soon, of the energetic and passionate shows the band puts on. Until then, don`t forget to pre-order the new album!
What are your opinions on the new Deaf Havana sound?
As some of you may know, I`m working as an au pair for 1,5 years now in England and the job is about to finish next week. I should be incredibly happy about it because it`s clearly not a dream job but everything is a mess now. Or at least I feel like that.
Long story short; the original plan was to move in together with friends, find a full time job and have so much fun in London but Life interrupted. Friends backed out of the plans, even moved out of town for personal and money reasons and I`m here all alone with the whole moving eventhough I wasn`t the one who found it necessary to move ASAP.This really wouldn`t be a problem for me because I have been a loner all my life and couldn`t rely on anyone besides my family. But.
After weeks of hunting houses/flats in London just to find out the place looks horrible in real life comparing to the price and seeing that every employee is looking for experienced people even for internships and the simplest jobs, I really feel like I need a break...and real summer weather.
I`m not one to be Negative Nancy and feel depressed all day but today is one of those days. I`m frustrated about everything and hate everyone right now. Grumpy Cat explains how I feel in general and my personal friends can certify it.
So here is a plan I have came up with and been thinking about all morning:
- move back home to my parents for the summer in Hungary
- find a job (not gonna be easy back there but my experience abroad and language is a huge benefit)
- save enough money to move wherever I can. preferably alone.
- never plan to move toghether with anyone. ever.
I find this plan pretty awesome right now and basically I can hop on a train/plane/ship or whatever (I`m still not one to drive) any time if I want to travel somewhere. I`m sure about that last part of sentence because I`ve been doing it for the past 1,5 year and living in England made me braver than ever. Almost. I`m still pretty shy.
I think that`s it. Now, I need to tell this to my Mum because she is still concerned that I`m finishing the au pair thing at the end of June and not next weekend. I`m not good at making sane decisions and sharing my plans with people who are related to my actions.
Anyway, it`s not 100% yet (I`m feeling about 70% at the moment) and I`m viewing a flat in South-London tomorrow and Sunday. I have to make a final decission on Sunday the latest.
And I need plus one huge suitcase because I won`t fit into one.
UPDATE: And after writing this depressed blog about how I should go home, I bump into 101 resons to live in London. (I love number 37 an 38). Effin' hell, I don`t know what to do!!!!!!!
I planned to do so many productive things on this Friday night. Watching Beverly Hills 90210 and finally finishing Les Miserables - that I`m reading for a mega-long time now – were both on my list. I get distracted easily though so when I went on YouTube to watch the new Avril Lavigne music video for some reason, I couldn`t resist not to look up her old stuff. Those brought back so many old memories that here I am writing in the middle of the night.
Avril used to be such a role model to me after she became uber-popular with ‘Sk8er Boi’ in 2002. I think that was the time when I started to find my own music genre and Avril was the first musician that I really-really loved. Everyone I knew used to listen to the debut album ‘Let Go’ then time passed and she came out with the second ‘Under My Skin’ album that I loved much more than the first. As I`m listening to those albums while I`m writing this, I realized that I still love them - unlike the rest. Her music transformed in such a bad way in my opinion. I`ve got good memories with some of her newest songs too but I don`t feel like I could relate to the whole thing.
I miss the old days when I wanted a hair like hers so badly, attempted to learn skating on my brother`s skateboard, listened to ‘Don`t Tell Me’ on repeat on a friend`s cassette (how weird...some of you may have never used one) at summer school-camp, used a dictionary to translate her - meaningful - songs because I didn`t know a word in English and she was married to an actual rock-star. I can`t believe all these things happened in the past decade.
Now, that I re-lived my teenage years, imagined being in my old bedroom, shared the things I wanted and feeling old enough, I`m off to sleep. You go and listen to those old Avril Lavigne albums because they are awesome. Hopefully it will bring back memories that you can share in the comments as well!
Buzznet is full of awesome stuff all year round. Both the Story Teller`s Group and that our months are based around a theme (which is new this year) make being on the site more interesting. May stands for Making Memories, while in the new group assignment you have to tell about amazing gigs from your past...or future.
Now, I`ll attempt to time travel. I thought I combine the two assignments and go back to the future in 26th May 2013. That is the day when myself and friends WILL head out to Slam Dunk Festival in Hatfield, England to make memories and see bunch of cool bands.
Take a look on who I am excited to see.
All Time Low
I think I basically moved to England to see ATL live on my birthdays and on festivals. This will be the 4th time seeing them in a year`s of time. You can`t blame me, can ya? These guys always put on a great show and make me laugh so much.
Kids In Glass Houses
I saw the Welsh band playing an anniversary show at a tiny sweaty gig in August and it`s one of my favourite shows. This time, I can`t wait to see how they work big time and sing along to Diamond Days with firends on the streets...haha, I wanted to do that since the day I fell in love with KIGH. I hope they will play new songs as well.
I really want to see William since there is no chance to see The Academy Is... in the upcoming months especially at this side of the pond and I love his solo EPs anyway. I might have to sacrifice seeing others for him though.
Pierce The Veil + Sleeping With Sirens
Just recovered from the Spring Fever along with All Time Low, PTV will headline the Monster Energy Stage while SWS playing the Main Stage. I feel like a surprise live collaboration will happen...that I will miss because it`s clashing with ATL...oh.
They opened Reading Festival with a spectacular afternoon gig last year and their songs are just perfect live. I`m secretly hoping they will play some of the deluxe versions of the Fools and Worthless Liars album although this festival might not be the place for those.
He is another singer going solo after his band`s (Jack`s Mannequin) break up. I saw his Buzznet exclusive performance which was amazing. I`m looking forward hearing more but this time in person.
They are one of the most exciting upcoming British bands with a signature sound and I find it underestimating to play a small stage. Also, I`m all about a surprise jump-in when two bands with previous collaborations are in one place so Aled of KIGH, I`m counting on you!
I`ll leave you with this now, although I could continue on going with The Summer Set, Tonight Alive, Mallory Knox, We Are The Ocean and more but I must find a DeLorean or hot tub time machine since my old favourite band and my new favourite band are clashing and I will lack in memories. And you know who I`m missing from this line up? The 1975.
When not one but two members of the same band start to follow you on Twitter and knowing that Ant West of Futures (may rest in peace...the band, not Ant) too worked with them, you can`t help but wonder how they sound like.
So just before I almost went mad on the London apartment hunt, I took a day off and checked out Alexander and what a great decision I made...again! As a bonus of this fine Friday discovery, the English guys also happen to release the band`s debut album 'Say Hello' worldwide today!
Check out the band`s first music video for the single 'You Lost Yourself' below!
If you liked this song, go grab a copy of 'Say Hello' for more!
The songstress and fellow girl friends hit the streets of Los Angeles pretty wild while also looking pretty and wild and they gamble a million, billion, trillion, gazillion dollars...Well, this description I just made up is lame so watch the video instead and see why it is my All Star today!
I love this video because it adds extra craziness to the song and gives you a visual clue to the Wild Child-sentiment. Don`t get me wrong; I`m not saying you should go to the bar to rip off men by playing pool (although it`s an easy way to get money if you`re good at it) but go and simply have fun!
The other reason I found this song perfect for Buzznet`s All Star Month is the "I`m a Wild Child, sitting on my throne" line. It`s like a reference on me but no one gets this joke besides my family and I`m not telling, ha! I guess the song will be my personal anthem from now on.
Life lesson`s over, I`m back to sitting on my throne while you all are leaving comments.
What do you think about the video?
I ditched my plans on watching the Coachella broadcasts on YouTube all weekend because the sun came out and the temperature was high as it hasn`t been so far this year. First spring day basically. It was a reason not to stay in bed and celebrate a beautiful sunny Sunday in London. I spent the whole day in Hyde Park having a picnic, taking photos, walking around and sunbathing.
This photo blog contains spring vibes, pretty landscape, sunshine and daffodils without snakes (see what I did there). Additionally, Vampire Weekend playing their summery music on the Coachella broadcast as backbground noise the moment I`m writing this. (FYI the new songs sound great)
The Serpentine-bridge separates Hyde Park from Kensington Gardens. If you look on the map the two looks basically like one huge park. The following photos are from Kensington Gardens apart from the last panorama.
Few years back, I could only dream about hanging out in Hyde Park and this is my reality now. I still find this fact amazing.
It`s crazy to think about it but we are almost half way through the year so it`s safe to say 2013 is the year of long-awaited comebacks and new music. Some were rumoured for months, we knew some of them will happen one day but had no idea when exactly, yet others simply dropped a new song out of the blue. I collected these into one blog because it`s All Star Month on Buzznet and everyone loves a great comeback.
Take a look on this list and let me know your favourite comeback ever in the comments below! It doesn`t have to be from this year though.
Fall Out Boy
Let`s get down to business and talk about the most anticipated and rumoured comeback that I can remember first. Rumours of a possible comeback were around ever since FOB went on hiatus breaking a lot of hearts in 2009. These got especially intensive in the past 6 or so months; even musical insiders talked about it but the members kept denying everything until the 4th of February this year: Fall Out Boy came off hiatus, gave us a new single, a release date of a new album and even new tour dates, starting the same day with an intimate show! I believe that was a day to remember for everyone. The album 'Save Rock And Roll' isn`t out until next month but it`s streaming online so go and listen to the new Fall Out Boy!
Paramore may have not gone on hiatus but the release of 'Brand New Eyes' happened ages ago (2009) and the departure of the Farro brothers in 2010 kept people occupied on what they can come up with as a trio. The first action was to release 'Monster' as a single and part of the Transformers 3 movie soundtrack in the summer of 2011 then we had to wait again...until 'Now', the first single of the new self-titled album (out now!), came out and things speeded up for them so much that I can hardly keep up. Paramore (along with Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance -rest in piece but for long please) are everywhere!
If Paramore`s 2009 release happened ages ago, then I don`t know what to call the 2006 release 'FutureSex/LoveSounds'...stone age, maybe? Don`t you worry though because JT is back with an extremely long (everyone seems to complain about its lenght) new album 'The 20/20 Experience' which -according to NME- "is the fastest selling album of 2013 so far".
Beyonce is the absolute pop diva. She makes unbelievable comebacks each time - the Super Bowl performance was one of them - she releases new material and that`s what I love in her. Even when I don`t always find the music that good there is something that makes me appreciate her work.
No one was expecting new music from Bowie who hasn`t released any new material for a decade now. Yet, a new single surfaced on the legendary singer`s 66th birthday in January and the new album 'The Next Days' is out now. The great news lead fans to demand a new tour with the album but it`s still unlikely. You can still visit London`s V&A Museum to see the 'David Bowie Is...' exhibition, which runs until August 2013, to experience something amazing related to the artist and his work.
The British pop-duo became one of my new favourites of the 2010 year when I first heard the song 'Better Than Love' so I was excited to finally hear new songs. Their second studio album 'Exile' was released this March and it sticks to the melancholic yet powerful sound that one could expect from Hurts.
Bring Me The Horizon
Following the 2010 release of their third album 'There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret.', the band`s new album may have leaked earlier but 'Sempiternal' is officially out now and it`s BMTH`s best work to date so far. That`s all you need to know to listen to the new material and that in the upcoming months they are doing tours all over the UK, Europe and Warped Tour as well.
Which comeback is your favourite?
This assignment should be about my favoutire photo but I can`t choose only one because I`ve got more than one this-is-my-ultimate-favourite kind of photos...so these are the All Stars of my photos I`ve taken so far. I have posted most of them before but it`s nice look at them again. Sure I could add more but I guess if I have to look for them, they aren`t such favouries.
Bundas had puppies few years ago and I took this while they were sunbathing. They look like royalties. The one on the left standing is Leto who`s my brother`s dog and living with my grandparents now. The girl in the middle got a nice new owner and I hope she`s alright. The other girl on the right sadly got hit by my dad when he wanted to take the car out of the garage. :(
This is from a family holiday in 2010.
Road tripping with my family in summer 2011. The last one I took with them. I remember I was listening to 'Back Down South' by Kings of Leon (my favourite song for the road then) when I shot it from the moving car. There is no edit on it.
One of the first shots with my current camera from last September.
Paris, September 2012. I think I don`t have to explain this. That city is amazing.
Dog lounging in the garden of Louvre.
One of those moments when I called for Bundas, she looked back at me then ran away. She`s got style.
This is her hunting look looking like a boss.
This one the newest showing Colin`s rad modeling skills from Saturday...okay actually he was waiting for me to throw his toy so he can run and bring it back :D
Thorpe Park last June. I was waiting for the perfect moment to capture the trains on top of the roller coaster, I got it and I even had a bird flying on the photo. I just love this.
Autumn at the park in Saint Albans. It really is on the top of my favourites list.
Sameplace, same day as the previous. Someone said on here that this would make a great album cover. Thanks for that!
Christmas time in South Kensington. I love the spinning carousel.
Festival vibes in Reading last summer. Not my best photo but I love it for the lights and the memories.
I'm pretty sure all of us collected everything about musicians, celebrity crushes and actors from the written media when we were younger, especially when not all of us had access to the wonderful world of internet back then.
I'm on holiday at my parents' in Hungary and I ran through a heavy shoe-box of old possessions the other day. Oh the gems I found...the amount of articles+posters about my favourites is huge in there. However, I wouldn't call the articles information-worthy and 100% true in retrospect, it's more like gossip for teens but it was fun to see these things again.
I thought it would be perfect and fun way to start All Star Month because, everybody loves a throwback, right?
This is the the newspaper put together by students in elementary school. That was the time when everybody in my class listened to Avril. The year is 2002 I guess.
Remember when she was more of a rock-chick back in the day then she is now?
And when she married to an actual rock-star than Chad Kroeger? :D
The article that made me get into other music than mainstream crppy pop and listen to such bands as Green Day, Good Charlotte, SUM 41, Papa Roach, Simple Plan and others. It was circa 2004 around the time when their albums came out. These bands pretty much ruled the rest of my teens and had huge impact on my taste in music today.
My first GC poster. Billy on the left was my crush :D
The Hillary Duff-Joel Madden couple seems like forever ago.
Haha, I always wanted those shocks
As I noticed, the Olsen-teins were literally everywhere in the 00's. Where are they now?
When Evanescence contained original members mostly...Oooo I spy Winchester brosthere too!
OH MY A HALF CUT MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE! My heart's broken now...how could I do that?!
When the 'I Don't Love You' EP came out. However I really started to listen to them around 2009 but I had their posters on my wall because I liked their look...and Mikey
When they were in magazines everywhere because they existed not because one came back from hiatus and one broke up. See today.
There was a time when I put the handsome Wentworth Miller on my wall while FOB was on the otherside. I was clearly mad.
Thank God, Pete and Britney hasn't got a child together. Poor baby...
My little brother liked to ruin my things when he was mad at me. Avril was one of his victims.
I had no idea who Jared Leto was in 2006. Sad.......
I'm also sure that the Leto family's members are vampires. They don't look a day older these days although Jared could be my dad. (Happy Birthday to my Dad btw)
The Rasmus. A one hit wonder Finnish rock band. Are they still making music?
AFI. They are one those bands I have never ever listened to for some reason. Are they still around?
Ahahaha pretty sure this was when I got to know McFly. They look so young. Dougie (who I married this summer....lolz for the insider joke) was my favourite since day one.
My calendar for 2007.
Look! Gossip Girl made an appearance too!
I have never had NSync era but I loved JT when he came out with the Sexy Back album.
I WAS a huge Tokio Hotel fan way before they became popular
I had to realize there a few people who aren't with us anymore :(
OTH is one of my favourite series ever and I can thank so many great music to it.
Everyone loved Prison Break when it first came on our screens
Zac Efron once sang musicals
Rihanna once wore actual clothes and we cathed The OC for Seth Cohen only.
Way before being a VS model and celebs friend, Barbara Palvin was cover girl in Hungary.
Shane West is still hot.
I made a collage too and I liked Kelly Carkson
I got tired putting together this huge photo blog. Enjoy it and let me know who you liked back in the day!
I'm gonna have some cakes now. Orlando Bloom says 'Hi!' :D
