Braid Releases First New Album in 16 Years

Braid, the emo/post hardcore band that started in 1993 are back with their first full length album in 16 years. No Coast was released on July 8th, and the guys spent release day in Lansing, MI at the annual Common Ground Music Festival. At previous shows before release day they hadn't been playing too many songs off the new album, but that all changed on Tuesday. They took the Sparrow Stage with tons of energy and excitement and played a nice mix of new songs with their classics. Riff2 caught up with vocalists Bob & Chris to talk about the new album, how it came together, what they're excited for on this tour and more! Check it out below! Read more...

Electric Forest Amazes Yet Again

Is it really possible that Electric Forest has already come and gone, and we're more than half way through 2014? We can't believe it either. A lot of stuff has already happened this year, and the fine folks over at Madison House Productions outdid themselves yet again on the Electric Forest Festival. Set in Michigan's beautiful Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Electric Forest hosted headliners like Zedd, Steve Angello, Umphrey's McGee, Zeds Dead and of course three exhilarating sets from The String Cheese Incident. There were activities on stage at 11:30a starting with daily yoga and went until all hours of the night wrapping up as late as 3:15a. Read more...
