Dustin Rabin Photography, Refused, Dustin Rabin

Four months into 2015, and the spectacular new music just keeps on coming! Here are the 15 tracks you HAVE to hear for April 2015…and the accompanying music videos you have to see:

1. Panic! At The Disco – “Hallelujah”

If you’re looking for incredible, booming vocals, a gospel-esque soundtrack, and, of course, something you can sing along to this spring, check out Panic! At The Disco’s latest single. It carries on the

2. This Century – “Soul Sucker”

A new single from This Century, finally following up to their debut. Featuring plenty of falsetto, pop-anthem flare, and big, sing-along choruses, the single was definitely worth the wait!

3. Refused – “Elektra”

Back from the grave, Refused brought out their first single in 17 years, “Elektra,” leaving many fans jumping for joy. April seems to be the month for bands reemerging. Thank goodness for Spring.

4. All Time Low – “Missing You”

The strikingly different track from All Time Low’s latest album (and UK No. 1), Future Hearts. With alternative rock/indie blends, each line will show you a new side to the band’s already lovable style.

5. The Weepies – “Sirens”

Folk duo The Weepies are back with their amazing new album, Sirens, and the title track is a must hear (for life, not just for April). Stunning, angelic vocals, rich instrumentals, and raw beauty encompass this song in every line.

6. Blessing A Curse – “Down The Rabbit Hole”

The new music video for “Down The Rabbit Hole,” showcases both the band’s musical talents and a dark creativity, with a plot revolving around a murderous villain whose face remains concealed by a creepy bunny mask, and, of course, there’s an awesome plot twist.

7. Lost Element – “Twenty Five”

“Twenty Five” is catchy, perfectly illustrating the emotions of the average “twenty-something.” Lost Element has a nostalgic sound, while also still showing elements of exploratory tones, which only adds to their charm.

8. Redlands – “Adventurer”

“Adventurer” is dedicated to Chase Martinez, who plays bass in Redlands, and his wife Brenna Martinez, whom he lost in a motorcycle accident on March 28th of this year. The track is a beautiful addition to the band’s growing discography, and will make you want to hit the repeat button a million times over.

9. Come & Rest – “Slowburn” 

A new kind of performance video, featuring cinematics, and of course, a track that bares all emotions without hesitance.

10. Rachel Potter – “Tail Lights”

Stunning country vocals, a track worthy to be on a road-trip mix, and lovable as hell. There’s really not much more that can be said for this amazing new single.

11. Brand New – “Mene”

Fans, rejoice! Finally, a new song from Brand New! As of right now, I like it, but I’m not sure whether I’m going to add it to my list of favorites just yet. However, it is repeat-button worthy, and will leave you wanting more.

12. Twenty One Pilots – “Tear In My Heart”

The piano-driven love song utilizes comparisons to slasher films to drive the point home, and the video is no exception. This time, Quentin Tarantino’s style of cinematography plays a heavy hand in brining the love story to life.

 13. The Maine – “Am I Pretty?”

Another extremely catchy track from The Maine’s latest album, American Candy. With fun beats, beachy vibes, and clever lyrics, you don’t want to miss out on this song!

14. Adam Lambert – “Ghost Town”

Adam Lambert is back with his new single, “Ghost Town,” which perfectly fuses catchy dance beats and indie rock style. Of course, Lambert’s stellar vocals still shine, booming throughout the track.

15. Fall Out Boy – “Uma Therman”

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be an assistant to Fall Out Boy, this video shows you just how crazy it could get. Watch as the band’s “assistant” accompanies the guys on a variety of tasks, from Crossfit to indoor skydiving to crushing a truck, all while rocking out to the catchy single from American Beauty / American Psycho.
