its so weird because please leave the light on when you go isnt written by fun. or nate, but it feels exactly like it belongs on dog problems
Wikipedia lists Nate as co-writer of “Leaving California,” one of the songs on Maroon 5’s upcoming album. From their website: “Leaving California, meanwhile, hearkens back to the classic M5 sound - the bittersweet yet catchy confessionals of heartbreak from Songs About Jane that propelled the band to fame in the first place.” (x)

Sometimes, one band just isn’t enough. Chances are, your favorite band isn’t releasing all the music the members are churning out. Everyone from the boys of Green Day and Blink-182 to fun. and Death Spells has a little extra something going on. Some of the side projects may even be completely different from what we’re used to but diversity is hardly a bad thing in the music industry. Whether or not the side band is better than the main band is completely up to you but nonetheless, check out these cool bonuses from some of our favorites.
Take the lyricism of The Wonder Years but remove the pop-punk feel and you’ve got Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties. It’s not something you’d start a pit to, but rather something you’d hear in a coffee shop while lost in a novel or discussing the meaning of life with a friend. The concept of the side project was to represent the worst year of vocalist Dan Campbell’s character Aaron West’s life.
Despite the line-up still consisting of Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Tré Cool, Mike Dirnt, Jason White and touring member Jason Freese plus Kevin Preston of Prima Donna, Foxboro Hot Tubs are almost nothing like Green Day. Both Armstrong and Jason White used aliases, Reverend Strychnine Twitch and Frosco Lee respectively, to book secret shows under their alias. Rather than scrappy punk rock, the side project has a more garage rock feel, but that didn’t stop “Fuck Time,” originally performed by Foxboro Hot Tubs, being released as part of Green Day’s ¡Dos! album.
Teaming up with Andrew Accardi of Robbers, Brian Lane of Brand New started Shone. Don’t expect the alt-rock emo of Brand New – expect something more along the lines of experimental progressive rock with equally sad lyrics. The project was originally also a viral marketing campaign/game/scavenger hunt shrouded in mystery until the band’s eventual unveiling in 2013.
Bleachers, fun.’s Jack Antonoff’s new project – ahem, not a fucking side project – has some of the catchiest songs I’ve heard in a while. The songs are fun, no pun intended, and make me want to dance and cry at the same time. It’s confusing.
Who can keep track of all of Frank Iero’s musical endeavors? Death Spells played supported Mindless Self Indulgence and played a spot at Skate and Surf festival last year, before touring with The Architects in the winter. Now, Iero’s working on frnkiero and the cellabration and will be touring with Taking Back Sunday and The Used this fall, and will release “Stomachaches” on August 26. (See our Death Spells interview from 2013 here)
+44, a product of the 2005-2009 hiatus, consisted of Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus, Shane Gallagher and Craig Fairbaugh. While more electronic than punk, the band still stuck to their rock-y roots with melodic punk-influenced sounds and inspiration from artists like The Cure and The Postal Service. Fortunately, the blink hiatus ended in 2009. Unfortunately, that brought upon the +44 hiatus.
While Hoppus and Barker worked on +44, Tom DeLonge spent his time on Angels & Airwaves, a progressive, space rock supergroup with an original line up featuring David Kennedy (Box Car Racer, Over My Dead Body), Ryan Sinn (ex-The Distiller) and Atom Willard (The Offpring). Although Blink-182 ended their hiatus in 2009, DeLonge continues to work on Angels & Airwaves, with a new release slated for later this year.
