This War We Live are certainly no strangers to the music scene. The Albany-based quartet have been playing under the name The Nightlife for the past 9 years, and have just recently launched the rebranded version earlier this year, known as This War We Live, but have still kept the same hardcore, metal, and rock influences that brought in fans across all genres. Substream got a chance to catch up with Ryan Swett and see what the band has in store for everyone this year. Click here or the photo above for a short Q&A, as well as an exclusive stream of one of their latest singles, “Flood The Hollow”. Check it out!
Post-hardcore/alternative rock band,Reverie, have been working nonstop since their formation two years ago. This south Florida band draws from diverse influences ranging from bands like Thrice to La Dispute to Circa Survive, and have successfully combined those influences into a unique sound that has cultivated a strong local following. Reverie has just released their music video for “The Blackened Sky” off of their debut EP, Chasing Mechanical Dreams, which is due out this Saturday, May 5th. Substream got a chance to chat with them and see what they have in store next. CLICK HERE for a short Q&A and to see their latest music video.
Hailing from the musical hub of Dayton, Ohio, pop-punk quartet Life After Liftoff are bringing a whole new sound to the music scene today. In addition to releasing their newest EP, Brand New Life, today, the band has partnered with national nonprofit group, Defeat The Label, to take a stand against bullying and promote change. Currently, they are participating in Stand4Change Day, a national event where middle and high school students around the country stand up for approximately 5 minutes to stop bullying. Additionally, Life After Liftoff will be releasing their Brand New Life music video on this day to all 200,00 schools that participate.

It’s that time of year again! Warped Tour is right around the corner and I’m starting to put together my volunteer groups for each day. This summer, Substream Music Press will be out from July 6th-31st, and I’m going to need two street teamers for each day. Here’s a little bit of an idea of what you’ll be doing during the day:
- arrive before gates open to help set up the tent
- pass out flyers/stickers to people entering/leaving
- get people to subscribe to the magazine
- sell merch
- hand out free mags
- help out with daily band signings
- help tear down the tent (usually between 6-7pm)
Since you are volunteering, I will give you a workers wristband, which will give you free entry into the venue. Keep in mind though that you are volunteering, so I expect you to be available to work until the end of the day.
Don’t worry! This may sound like a lot, but I promise that will be able to still watch the bands you want to see.
Please send a short e-mail to email@example.com, and include:
- your full name
- your age
- the date/city you would like to volunteer at
- any previous volunteering/promotion/street team experience.
- a short introduction: Tell me about yourself! I am looking for outgoing an enthusiastic people to help out. Don’t be shy!
- why you would like to volunteer with Substream
- any health problems I might need to be aware of
- If you would like to work with a friend, please apply together in one email and include all of the above for both of you.
- link to facebook/twitter/tumblr (so I know who you are/can put a face to your name)
- be 16+ (sorry guys, no exceptions)
- be able to commit to helping the whole day
- have reliable transportation to/from venue
please note: you will be responsible for all parking/food costs. I will have a nice big cooler in the tent, so you’re more than welcome to bring any food/water with you from home to save money (do not bring alcohol).
Application e-mails are due by May 18th. Please get them in ASAP, since spots will fill up extremely fast. Remember, I only have two wristbands for each day!

Things Fall Apart are a melodic post-hardcore/emo band, hailing from Columbus, Ohio.

Second To Last, a four-piece melodic punk band hailing from Lodi, CA, have been working nonstop over the past few years to create a catchy sound all their own. Their music, reminiscent of early Alkaline Trio, Saves The Day, and Hot Water Music, reflects their growth as musicians, and focuses on more meaningful topics than today’s pop punk bands tend to cover. Substream got a chance to catch up with the guys and discuss their upcoming EP, Vessels (out June 5th on Hella Mad Records), as well as their plans for this coming year. CLICK HERE for a short Q&A with them and hear a new song off of Vessels!
Toronto natives, Lacerda, are no strangers to the hard work and struggles that go in to being a successful band.

Now, Lacerda has teamed up with Ace Enders of The Early November and are busy gearing up to start working on their new record, due out this summer. Substream got a chance to catch up with Milenko, their singer, to discuss what the band has in store for the next few months.
