All you who complain about the tours I get out here in sunny Southern California can finally quit your complaining. While I may be getting my fair share of shows coming up, the East Coast has won a tour I’d love to catch. Conditions is taking out Life On Repeat and iRival for a short run through March. Each band has free downloads of songs listed below.
Conditions were named one of PureVolume’s Top 20 Unsigned Bands of 2009 last month for their great alternative/rock sound. In honor of the achievement, the band has a few songs available for download via their PureVolume page, including a personal favorite of mine, “Keeping Pace In Planes.” For those who love juicy gossip, rumor has it their singer declined the chance to replace Craig Owens as lead vocalist for Chiodos.
Life On Repeat fall in the same vein as Conditions but with a more radio-friendly focus. Big sing-alongs compliment strong musicianship to make good fun. The band was featured on the first MindEqualsBlown Free Music Alert last year, and their debut EP is still available in the pay-what-you-want format via our article. Don’t miss their killer cover of Miley Cyrus’ “Party In The U.S.A.” on their MySpace.
iRival may be the poppiest of the trio, but don’t doubt them for a second. Another PureVolume Top 20 Unsigned Band, the group has been building up a steady following with their A Skylit Drive-meets-electronics-meets pop sound. Two songs are available for download via their PureVolume.
