Watch AWOLNATION’s inspiring new video for ‘Passion’

‘Passion’ is the first single off the forthcoming AWOLNATION album Here Come The Runts, due out February 2nd. The video, released last week follows a day in the life of Og de Souza, a Brazilian skateboarder who lost the use of his legs as a child due to Polio. Souza cruises through the city and shreds at a beach side skate park all the awhile carrying a heart-warming smile. Lead singer Aaron Bruno  tells Billboard, “Og has a such an amazing passion for life, positivity and, of course, skating, It’s an inspiration to me and what he does is a great example of how to overcome obstacles in life through your passion. I know music has saved my life on more than one occasion. It’s an honor for us that he wanted to be a part of this video and share some of his life together.”

Watch and get inspired!

Earlier today Bastille dropped a new single and music video, ‘World Gone Mad’. The song is awesome but the video is even better! Since this single is also the lead single for the Netflix film Bright, it features actors Will smith and Joel Edgerton running the streets in post-apocalyptic Las Angeles. Dan Smith of Bastille emerges from a wrecked cop car and makes his way through the now violent and terrifying “world gone mad”.

Sam talks Next Big Thing with Vance Joy

We are PUMPED to have Vance Joy on the lineup for Day 2 of Next Big Thing this year! I got to speak with him over the phone this week and we talked everything from birthday plans to new music!

Vance Joy’s 30th birthday is Dec. 1st, so he will be flying straight from Australia to Tampa for NBT. When I asked him his usual birthday wishes and traditions he revealed that he actually likes to act as the hostess with the mostest on his birthday! “I like hosting people at my house, I like having everyone in the same space and making sure everyone has a drink, and getting the music going.” He also clued us into the fact that he DOES have a sweet tooth so we will definitely be making some sweetness happen at NBT!

Joy also just dropped ‘Like Gold’ last week, the newest single from his upcoming album Nation of Two, due out in February. We talked the a lot about the writing process on this album and confirmed that we will be hearing new songs from the album at NBT!

Another highlight from the interview was when he described his favorite festival moment. Just imagine, Vance Joy with a broken foot in a boot, lifting his really ‘heavy’ friend on his shoulders in the rain. Yep. Magical.

Hear his newest single ‘Like Gold’ now!

Vance Joy’s single ‘Riptide’ from 2014’s Dream Your Life Away really put him on the map. In May 2015,  it was the 2nd longest charting single in the U>S on the Billboard Hot 100 with a peak in the #30 position.

Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Police Chief to join trick-or-treaters in Seminole Heights

The Seminole Heights community is still on edge after the killer involved in 3 recent murders still has not been found. However, as Fox 13 reported, both the Mayor and the Police Chief want residents to know that plenty of extra officers and security will be on hand Halloween night to make sure trick-or-treaters are safe.

Even Mayor Bob Buckhorn himself and Interim Police Chief Brian Dugan will spend Halloween evening handing out candy at Giddens Park and walking with kids through the SE Seminole Heights neighborhoods.

Mayor, chief to join Seminole Heights trick-or-treaters tomorrow: https://t.co/gZDgquXCYr — FOX 13 Tampa Bay (@FOX13News) October 30, 2017

Three people have been killed in that area in the last month. Victims were unrelated and police believe a possible serial killer is to blame. Although police don’t have many leads, they would still like to locate the ‘person of interest’ in this surveillance video. If you know anything, please contact Tampa Police. 

It’s National Candy Corn Day

Will your stomach be growling or turning today? Candy corn are one of the most DIVISIVE Halloween candies out there and today it’s all about them! Some people can’t get enough of the fun seasonal colors and sweet sugary taste, while others can’t understand why people would want to eat such demon wax.

Either way, it still ends up flying off the shelves this time of year. To be exact every year about 35-million pounds are produced or 9 BILLION PIECES. That’s a lot of corn!

October 30th, the day before Halloween is marked as national Candy Corn Day because it is believed the largest amount will be sold on this date.

So where do you stand on this controversial confection?

You only have 14 more months with Brand New

Even though they have said it before, we kind of didn’t want to believe it.

Unfortunately for us though, this week we heard it straight from Jesse Lacey’s mouth. Twitter user @wrenmcdaniel captured the moment and tweeted it out. You can hear the clearly distraught fans in the background.

“We’re going to be a band for about 14 more months so thank you…”

Magic Giant hold a pretty special place in our hearts here at 97x. Ever since they first performed in our Corona Extra Green Room we knew they were some really talented guys and SO MUCH FUN!

Take 4 minutes, watch this video and you’ll see what we mean!
