Two months after revealing their resurrection and reformation, DIRGE WITHIN are ready to make new “Memories” with the release of their comeback single, available today on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other digital outlets. Originally featured on their 2012 album, "There Will Be Blood," the re-recorded single positions the band to pick up right where they left off prior to their five-year hiatus.
Cinco de Mayo is this Tuesday, and LUCKY DIAZ AND THE FAMILY JAM BAND are continuing their tradition of seasonal releases with "Piñata Attack, a new single available in both English and Spanish. The new single follows the full album releases of ¡FANTASTICO! and AQUI, ALLA, both of which played well here at Rock Father HQ, and will be available just in-time for Cinco de Mayo on May 5th, with pre-orders up now on iTunes. Can't wait to hear it? Check out an advance stream on Lucky and Alisha's official site.
After The Hub Network began it's slow disintegration earlier this year (disclosure: I was one of their "Hub Club" writers for about five minutes), one of the major signs that the end was near was their unceremonious non-cancelling cancellation of THE AQUABATS! SUPER SHOW!, almost at the same time in which The Aquabats! received five Daytime Emmy nominations, of which they'd win one. If I understand it correctly, they essentially gave the show back to The Aquabats!, leaving them free to take it to another network or service. While Netflix is the obvious choice for new episodes (and hey, I write for the Netflix #StreamTeam now!), the first season disappeared from the streaming giant on December 15th, but in a "Christmas miracle" of sorts, the entire run of the show, including the "lost" Season 2 and "3" (special) episodes have appeared on both Amazon Instant and iTunes. Why is this so important, you ask? Well, as a gift to all of you, The Aquabats! have uploaded the entire Christmas! With The Aquabats! special to YouTube, and it can be viewed now, right here on THE ROCK FATHER. Personally, I've been waiting nearly a year to see this one again...
It looks like AC/DC may have been playing a goof when the released the ultra-low budget video for "Play Ball" earlier this month, drawing the ire of fans around the Globe. The iconic rockers have just unleashed the proper video for "Rock or Bust," the title track from their forthcoming new album, and the video - like the song itself - is pure, vintage AC/DC. While I've got that embedded here on THE ROCK FATHER for your viewing pleasure, you can stream the entire album right now for free on iTunes First Play.

After emerging from hiatus last year with a new album that was recorded in secret, FALL OUT BOY has kept listeners engaged with a constant stream of videos and live dates. Now, the band has sprung yet another surprise, with the announcement of a new single called "Centuries" that will arrive digitally this Tuesday... or perhaps even Monday, September 8th in some parts of the world. Pre-orders are up now on iTunes, which lists 9/9 as the official release date. Are you curious?
