Band To Watch

tonight alive crest

It seems like not many rock bands make it out of Australia, but are we ever glad these guys did! Tonight Alive is a pop-punk band out of Sydney, and since releasing their full-length debut ‘What Are You So Scared Of?’ towards the end of 2011, they’ve managed to steal’s hearts, and we haven’t been able to get them back… nor do we want to. Listen to any of their songs or catch one of their live shows, and we guarantee you’ll be smitten too!

_R0P1740_TA_100pdiJust five years after forming in 2008, Tonight Alive – consisting of vocalist Jenna McDougall, guitarists Whakaio Taahi and Jake Hardy, bassist Cameron Adler, and drummer Matt Best – are already putting on shows as if they have been playing together for twice as long. With inspirational lyrics, killer guitar work, energy for days, and an incredibly positive message, it’s hard not to be impressed. To top it all off, the members of Tonight Alive are some of the most friendly and gracious people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. It’s hard not to become a fan after you check out their music, but it’s impossible not to support them after talking to them for a little while.

We could honestly go on about Tonight Alive all day long, and if we didn’t think you’d get tired of us, we totally would, but it’s time to let their music speak for itself. Please check out the videos and links below, and prepare to fall in love. This band is destined for big things, and we can’t wait to see them happen!

UPDATE: Just when we thought our love for this band couldn’t get any stronger, they went ahead and released their second album The Other Side… just listen to them already, for God’s sake! This album is amazing! Those big things we said they were destined for? They’re in the works as we speak.

Here’s the brand new video for “Come Home,” one of our favorites from The Other Side.
You can buy it on iTunes by clicking HERE or pick it up at your local record store!
