It’s week two with The Singles, and this time they perform their groove-worthy tune “(She’s Got) A Heart of Stone”! This one is for anyone who has been so into someone (who couldn’t care less about them) that they repeatedly let them get away with anything. Ugh. Turn this one up real loud and sing along with The Singles!

BB Live: July Resident Band: Down and Outlaws: Week 3

Is it really already week 3 with Down and Outlaws?! Damn. Well, that means this the the last track we get with ’em (boo), but they saved one of my personal favorites for last. This week the gents perform “Backwards from the Dead” another heavy track with the addition of some killer harmonica.

“You can’t quite be what you want to,
You can’t quite seem to breathe.
There’s a madman stuck inside you,
Looking for the dead to be…”

Let loose your inner madman (or madwoman) and crank this one up! Also, pick up their new album Above Snakes now! Oh, and LA, you can catch these guys on THIS FRIDAY at The Hi Hat, with another Badass Band, The Diamond Light! 9pm.
