It's been a busy week here at PureVolume. Our main page has been a-buzz with an eclectic mix of artists [reppin' everyone from Marilyn Manson to indie-rockers The Dig], we dished out interviews with an on-the-verge hip-hop sensation and a UK duo poised to change the face of rock n' roll, and we launched our Warped Doodle Showdown contest in an effort to hook you up with fun drawings from your favorite bands [and let said baids show off their inner-artist]. If we lost you on any of that, don't worry because we have your back with our new Saturday segment, the PureVolume Week in Review. Our top stories from the week of July 23-27 are:
Marilyn Manson Exclusive Remix Premiere: We started our week off right with an exclusive premiere of Marilyn Manson's "No Reflection" remix. The dark and industrial jam, crafted by Deathface, is also the first official remix off Manson's new album, Born Villain.
Warped Doodle Showdown: We asked bands like New Found Glory, Taking Back Sunday, Mayday Parade and more to draw us a doodle while hanging out at Warped Tour. We're now giving away their [signed] creations to some lucky PV'ers who can show us an artistic edge of their own. Enter now if you haven't already!
We The Kings Video Interview: In this PV video Q&A, frontman Travis Clark shares his sneaky Warped Tour beginnings, which band would make him star-struck, and how the crowd's been reacting to the band's latest single, "Party, Fun, Love & Radio."
Taking Back Sunday Video Interview: Yet another PV video Q&A! This time around, TBS dish on Warped Tour, song formation, and how their music led two fans to say "I Do."
Cherri Bomb Interviews New Found Glory: We shook up our interview methods and enlisted up-and-coming rocker chicks Cherri Bomb to grill New Found Glory on an array of topics. Some highlights? Jordan Pundik's tale of a date lost to a Justin Timberlake concert and the band's Warped Tour laundry strategy.
Blood Red Shoes Stream New Album + Take the PV Q&A: The UK duo offered up a full album stream of their just-dropped effort, In Time to Voices. Steven Ansell also caught up with us about the pair's growth as musicians, finding their own voice, and the power of reflection in our PV Q&A.
The Dig Premiere "I Already Forgot Everything You Said": These NYC-based indie-rockers used a formerly abandoned building to their advantage in this quirky and semi-chilling new video.
K. Flay Q&A: This up-and-coming hip-hop sensation talks sampling, remaining open to inspiration, and bringing her DIY aesthetic with her to a major label in our PV Q&A.
With Beating Hearts Offers 'Summer Remix' EP for Free: It's summer, you need some new beats to soundtrack your weekend, and this EP is a welcome solution — you can thank the band for the free download part.
Ask William Beckett Anything for Fan Q&A: This Monday, we're bringing Mr. Beckett into our offices to conduct a fan-based interview. That means we need your help! Leave your best questions with us, we'll pass them along to WB, and then we'll run the whole thing as a very special PV Q&A!
