It’s been nothing but an upward trajectory for BIG Something, the six piece rockers based out of North Carolina. The band continues to make a name for themselves with high energy performances, uniquely crafted setlists, and sensational songwriting abilities, fusing influences of rock, funk, jazz and more for a sound wholly their own. As the band continues to take the scene by storm, fans were recently treated to the good news that BIG Something would be releasing a new album, Tumbleweed, in early 2017.Due out February 24th, the new album will be the fourth release from this exciting six-piece group. The album itself takes on a darker tone than the band’s previous works, as singer Nick MacDaniels mentions in his discussion of the new release. “Tumbleweed is a post apocalyptic desert trip. It’s a little darker and heavier in tone and subject matter than our previous albums, but there are also a few bright spots and upbeat moments too. With all eight tracks having been ‘road tested’ for the past couple years, it’s a really nice snapshot of our sound and catalogue.”To get fans excited about the new release, BIG Something has offered Live For Live Music the first taste! We’re delighted to premiere the album’s title track “Tumbleweed,” which you can stream in the player below.“‘Tumbleweed’ is the album’s title track and inspiration for the cover art,” says MacDaniels. “The name tumbleweed refers to the main character of the song who is fumbling aimlessly through a post-apocalyptic desert wasteland hallucinating on peyote. He’s telling himself to just keep moving in order to survive.” The band’s drummer Ben Vinograd adds, “I love this song because it showcases the dynamic all the players in our band can bring to the table. From the opening line on, everyone has a chance to shine.”The whole band has a chance to shine on Tumbleweed, including Ben Vinograd (drums), Doug Marshall (bass), Josh Kagel (keys, trumpet), Casey Cranford (saxophone, EWI), Jesse Henlsey (lead guitar), and Nick MacDaniels (vocals, guitar). Recorded at the beloved Echo Mountain Asheville studios with Grammy-nominated producer John Custer, we can’t wait for the new album to be released!BIG Something’s new album Tumbleweed is due out on February 24th, 2017, and you can pre-order the disc here.

Share on: WhatsApp Great save AdrianIstanbul, Turkey | AFP | Liverpool beat Chelsea 5-4 on penalties to win the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday after a richly entertaining match in Istanbul finished 2-2 at the end of extra time.Every penalty in the shoot-out had found the net before Tammy Abraham’s effort was saved by Spanish goalkeeper Adrian, allowing the European champions to win the trophy for the fourth time in their history.Sadio Mane had earlier cancelled out Olivier Giroud’s opener and then scored again to put Liverpool 2-1 up five minutes into extra time. However, Jorginho netted a penalty at the other end to force the shoot-out.
A heartwarming story this Wednesday afternoon.On Saturday, Boynton Beach Police were dispatched to a local park after receiving a call about an abandoned basket of puppies.But when Officer Chris Schalk arrived at the scene to find the animals, he soon realized they were not puppies but actually baby bunnies!He was able to make the identification with the help of a friend from the Coral Springs Animal Hospital.Officer Schalk then took the baby bunnies to East Coast Rabbit Rescue, a nonprofit in West Palm Beach, that rescues abandoned or injured rabbits.The organization also works to help the animals find a forever home.
:10 It’s Labor Day, which means “No Labor.” Go figure. Anyway…this will be a “No Labor” edition. So shut-up and take it like a man…or woman!:09 The NFL will split $765 million with more than 4,500 former players with concussion problems. That’s about $5 million each. Hell, for $5 million somebody can hit me again!:08 Sitting on 63 straight wins, the longest in the nation, the Clairton Bears look to extend the record with a new crop of players. It’s not going to be easy, but I say they’ll get it done.:07 I would break down the Steeler game from last Thursday night, but the Steelers didn’t play … no really, the Steelers didn’t play!:06 Back out on that limb that Kevin Cameron refuses to go out on. I got the Pirates sweeping St. Louis. By the time you read this, the deed will be done.:05 The Florida State Seminoles will come to town Labor Day Monday. I am going all in. Pitt in the upset. It’s a new day in Panther town.:04 Tiger Woods says his back is fine. That said, I got him winning the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston. (I don”t know. I am just feeling good about it.):03 Alison Riske of Peters Township advances to the third round of the U.S. Open. Bring home the gold girl. That’s how we roll round here. Sorry Serena. Step off on this one.:02 I want to say good bye to my “Special Cousin” Mrs. Shirley Grogan who passed away this past week. Far too soon. She was without question, the nicest and most beloved woman you could ever want to meet. Always a smile on her face and always the giving, caring, sharing person that we all wish we could be. To the entire Grogan family, may God Bless you all and may only wonderful things come your way. To my “Favorite Cousin” Darlene (smile) and Reece, keep the family tight and move forward. Shirley, we love you and you will be missed.:01 Tyler DeShon Carter … it’s quite possible that if you don”t know the name, you’re the only one. But trust me, the rest of the country does and it won’t be long before he’s a household name. He, of the Penn Hills Eagles Track Club under the direction of Coach Chaz Carter and Bruce Schifino, recently participated in the Regional Junior Championships where he became champion in the long jump, triple jump, 110 hurdle and 400 hurdles and was ranked No. 1 nationally in the triple jump. Credit also has to go out to his hurdles coach Jerimey Ward, where some serious work has been invested. While at the Nationals, Carter finished 5th in the triple jump and was proud to excel in competition that included more than 8,500 athletes. But here’s the important thing. Clearly winning matters, but what matters even more as his coaches explain, is that he is an intelligent, hard working and highly respected young man. Those are the real skills that will eventually take him to Olympic Gold. Represent Tyler… Represent!! Go Eagles! Your comments are welcome.
