Two Chances to Catch Every Time I Die & More | Sunday, March 29 @ The End

EveryTimeIDie-620

As announced last month, Buffalo metalcore/hardcore outfit Every Time I Die are set to return to Nashville this Sunday, March 29, for what, we believe, will be their smallest Music City show ever. Sure to be a rowdy, unforgettable time, the initial all ages show with eclectic west coast grungy hardcore band Mizery and locals Cove quickly sold out, and a late night, 18+ performance with locals Rivera and Indianapolis alt/nu metal group Authors was added (you can still grab tix here). Find out more about the shows below, and check out a preview of both lineups!

[Premiere] Stream The First Single from Jilian Linklater’s Upcoming EP ‘Walking Stories’

View More: http://reknewphotography.pass.us/jil

Michigan-bred Jilian Linklater has been honing her songwriting chops in Nashville for the past five years.  While attending Belmont, she quickly made a name for herself as a freshman when she won the ASCAP writers series, and was selected to play in their Best Of The Best Showcase.  The passion for songwriting led to the recording of her first EP in her dorm room, and became the drive that would challenge her to write her newest EP Walking Stories that drops on March 31.

We had a listen to Walking Stories, and asked if we could premiere the single “Better Than I Know Myself.” With a beat that evokes thoughts of springtime finger-snapping strolls in the sun, and the lyrics of young love pouring through you, it seems a perfect ode to the impending change of season.

Have a listen to the single below, and mark your calendar for the April 2 EP release show at The Well Coffeehouse on Granny White.
