At the Exit In in Nashville, TN, We The Kings kicked off their self titled album 10th anniversary tour with Cute Is What We Aim For, Astro Lasso, and Plaid Brixx. The bands played to a sold out room at the downtown Nashville venue.
One of the standout moments of the evening was lead singer, Shaant Hacikyan, announced they will be recording new music immediately after the tour they are currently on. Hacikyan shared, "The dates are set, the deposit is down, and we will be recording new music as soon as we get home"
This comes as a relief to all fans of the band after they decided to put recording on hiatus. The singer also addressed this and his mental health stating he "fell into a depression and didn't want to do anything at the time", he goes on to say, "A couple weeks ago when [We The Kings] came to us with the offer to go on this tour I saw the clouds part and the sun was shining down on me."
Cute Is What We Aim For played a half hour set with energy and antics that showed they were ready and excited to start this tour. The crowd was more than responsive, singing every song back to them and giving them all they had. The crowd was full of early and mid 20 year olds, living out their highschool dreams. They uploaded a short video from the show to their Facebook showing just how packed and energetic the show was!
We The Kings' 10 Year tour will continue on until April 2nd, 2017 and then continuing in the U.K. in May! You can find tickets HERE.

Since this is my first article for Wolfsbane Co.,I thought it would be important to know where my love for pop music came from. As a young child, I had always realized that I loved music. However, pop music has always had a special place in my heart, and the hearts of others.
Pop music has taken a huge uproar in the last few years. With its upbeat tempo, and rhythms that contagiously make your body move, pop music have inevitably played huge roles in the music industry.
1) Closer: The Chainsmokers Ft. Halsey
The Chainsmokers released this smash hit on July 29th, 2016. Since then, this hit has taken over the country. There isn't a place you can't here this song being sung or played at. It has a catchy beat, and Halsey's vocals really add a vocal dynamic. I'm sure you're already humming, " We ain't ever getting older."
2) Heathens: Twenty-One Pilots
This duo has swept the country with its dynamic hits. Heathens, was none the less another hit. This song was featured in the movie Suicide Squad. Twenty-One Pilots have such a different sound, that have set them apart from many pop artist we see today.
3) Into You: Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande has been a icon in the music industry. Arguably one the best vocalist in the music scene, Grande really shows here vocal range in Into You. In the verses we can see Grande singing in lower pitches that we haven't really seen her do, but she nails them on the album Dangerous Woman. This song has a catchy beat, and the lyrics speaks to situations of infatuation.
4) Starboy: The Weekend Ft. Daft Punk
The Weekends latest hit is one to pay attention to. Daft Punkadds a feel/tone that makes this song differ than The Weekends other songs like The Hills and In The Night. Just recently released, Starboy is soaring the pop-charts in the United States.
5) 24k Magic: Bruno Mars
Bruno Mars is back and better than ever. This recently released Pop-Funk tune is sweeping the nation by a storm. This song, in resemblance to Uptown Funk, uses more funk and even feature a vocal box throughout the song. I'm excited to see what Bruno has in store for us next.
