This is a song about feeling as if fate is against you, laced with fat riffs, frantic synths and hip-hop beats. An anthem for swinging against the hand you've been dealt. This is denying your destiny, this is Stigmata.

Never Gave it Back

by Petrichør

Hey! We're a 4-piece band called Petrichør. We're based out of Miami, Florida and we've only been around for about a year. We believe that music deserves to be experienced by the 5 senses so we made our first song "Never Gave it Back" much more than a track; we made it an experience.

Serotonin (Acoustic)

by Kr!s Cortez

I'm smoking on secondhand serotonin. Hi, my name is Kr!s Cortez. When punk goes acoustic, it brings a whole different meaning to the word "Emo". My song Serotonin tells a story, a story that many people are familiar with. Loneliness. With melancholy melodies and anthemic lyrics, to fill our void.

We are pop-punk/emo (or "warpedtour-core" as I've affectionately named it) band from Denver called Relate. We released "Dreamland" last year and I figured I'd shoot it over to y'all. We definitely date ourselves with this track, it has much more in common with Brand New than it does with MGK.
