What is popular in the new rock summer music trend?

There will always be rock fans keeping rock alive but is classic rock making a comeback?

If you are a fan of TikTok you would have to say yes as Fleetwood Mac, Aly and AJ, and Jack Johnson have had years-old songs coast to the top of TikTok in recent years sparking a rush for music labels to get their bands on the app. The Biggest Old Music Hits Resurfaced by TikTok.

Classic rock is popping up everywhere as the legendary musicians start to advertise their catalogs for sale by promoting old songs on TikTok and pushing out singles from the 60s.

Does TikTok have the capacity to revive an entire career?

“Oxfordshire indie-pop group Glass Animals are currently at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with their track ‘Heat Waves’. Remarkably, it was released almost two years ago, but thanks to Tik-Tok, the band are enjoying a level of success that, in truth, they probably never thought was possible.” <FarOutmag>

Metal music trends

Heavy metal is still going strong with its diehard fans and it seems like heavy metal rock bands are becoming more consolidated into one or two genres. New Metal and Old Metal .

Best New Rock Songs of Summer 2022

Monster Truck — Golden Woman

Playing loud-and-proud hard rock that mixes strutting ‘70s-style arena sounds with a dash of grunge-era sneer, Monster Truck were formed in Hamilton, Ontario in 2009 by members of two of the area’s most popular bands — guitarist Jeremy Widerman and drummer Steve Kiely had played with the group the Reason, and keyboard man Brandon Bliss worked with Saint Alvia. Eager to play the sort of no-nonsense hard rock they’d grown up on, Widerman, Bliss, and Kiely teamed up with singer and bassist Jon Harvey, and in 2010 Monster Truck cut a four-song EP, originally sold at the merch tables at their shows. <Spotify>

Marc Killian Celebrates his Love for Radio Rock with new Single ‘Radio Love Song’ < Spotify>

Marc Killian’s newest single Radio Love Song is a celebration of love for the rock on the radio. The single is fun, danceable and reminds you of those exciting moments with music as you get ready to share good times with friends on a night out.

Black + White TV takes soulmates to the moon and back on new single “Traveler”

The singer, Jonathan Joyce, was inspired to write this song from being away from his daughter for years and he misses her to death. He wrote a song about what it feels like being so alone and the person you love is so far away. He thought of several situations while writing such as being away from your soulmate, or your family. In this song, the singer’s soulmate is on the moon, while he is still stuck on earth. She is messaging him from her skylab saying “If you are ever alone, I have a place for you. He sends the message back up to his soulmate saying the same thing “if you are ever alone, I have a place for you down here”

Panic at the disco — Viva Las Vengeance

Panic! at the Disco is the solo project[1] of American musician Brendon Urie. It was originally a pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2004 by childhood friends Urie, Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, and Brent Wilson. They recorded their first demos while they were in high school. Shortly after, the band recorded and released their debut studio album, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out (2005). Popularized by the second single, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”, the album was certified triple platinum in the US.

Skinny Dippers — Home (Surf Rock | United States)

Skinny Dippers is a Brooklyn NY based Indie Music project fronted by singer/songwriter Ryan Gross. Drawing from his roots growing up on the coast of Maine, his style spans a broad range of genres by blending guitar driven indie rock arrangements with analog synthesizers and choral harmonies. The songwriting shares intimate moments through understated lyricism while turning them into feelings every listener can relate to. Musically the band pulls from a number of influences including artists like Hovvdy, TOLEDO, The Shins, and Stephen Malkmus. @dippers_skinny

Cabela and Schmitt: Freedom Rising

Freedom rising by cabela and schmitt is about how those in authoritative positions around the world who are constantly pushing the masses into a molded type of thinking keeps people down.

Rather than allowing the people to think for themselves and exercise freedom of speech to rise up and realize their true potential, there is a consistent suppression of spirit. This pressure is beginning to take hold all over the world and many are stepping up to try to make a change for the better. <Read the story>

Jack White — If I Die Tomorrow

One of the great rock conceptualists of the 21st century, Jack White came to fame as the leader of the White Stripes, the Detroit-based garage-punk duo who unexpectedly became one of the biggest rock acts of the 2000s. The White Stripes established White as a roots rocker — he made sure they covered blues chestnuts from Son House — to such a degree that his modernist art instincts were somewhat overshadowed during the band’s peak. <Spotify>

Hollywood — 12 am

Rising artist 12AM has released his new single “Hollywood,” out now. The song, co-written and produced by ​​Grammy-nominated producer John Feldmann (Blink 182, Avril Lavigne, Sueco), was inspired by the artist’s return home to Toronto after spending the past few years in Los Angeles. One of his most vulnerable tracks to date, “Hollywood” opens with an acoustic feel and slowly brings listeners into 12AM’s sonic journey of reflection, building into a driving hip-hop beat and an undeniably infectious drum-led drop. <Spotify>

Greg Hoy & The Boys — Jet Black, Get Back!

Oakland, California plug-in-and-play rock artist Greg Hoy has blown the cobwebs off the van to tour supporting the ‘The Special Party’ album release. Lead single ‘Jet Black, Get Back!’ infuses a classic rock n roll vibe and oozes with an retro fresh attitude. The band’s 2022 Build Back Better tour will also be performing songs from their 6 song EP ‘Enjoy the View’ recorded by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies) and mixed by Sylvia Massy (Tool, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty). The band’s video for ‘Can You Take It?’ featuring hip hop legend Ice-T was nominated for a California Video Award (Most Humorous).
