Offended By Everything | Evergreen
Pop punk outfit Offended By Everything return with a catchy EP. "Evergreen is our own blend of former and current Pop Punk," said guitarist Jarrett Adolf. It's something extremely personal to all of us, but we also wanted to create something that any fan of the genre would want to jam [to]."

Singer/songwriter/producer gnash is back with the much-anticipated follow up to his 2016 EP with

The singer-songwriter would have been 51 today.
Today, August 6, 2020, Elliott Smith would have turned 51 years old.
Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised in north Texas, and spent a good portion of his life in Portland, Oregon before settling in Los Angeles. Before his sudden and mysterious death in 2003, the prolific singer-songwriter released five studio albums of poignant, rootsy indie rock, with his sixth studio album and a compilation of rarities being released posthumously. He became known for his dismal lyrics—often referencing his mental health and substance abuse habits—and his distinctively whispery vocals, which he often double-tracked to create an eerie, textured ambiance.
