Hit The Hottest Stage In The Sea On The Rock Boat!

Sharing the stage with Sister Hazel, Tony Lucca from The Voice, Brandi Carlile, or Scars on 45 would be really awesome, right? Well, what if you could play with all of them? And what if it was on a pimped out party cruise sailing around The Bahamas?

It might sound too good to be true, but one lucky OurStage artist will be doing just that this February. The Grand Prize Winner will set sail from Great Stirrup Cay in February 2013 to perform not one, but two 60-minute sets. If you’re ready for your big break, enter the Rock Boat Lucky 13 Competition now for your chance to win! Click here to enter now!

Soundtrax: Rock & Shock – Happy Halloween!

Rock & Shock: Happy Halloween from OurStage on 8tracks Radio.


Zombies, vampires, demons and more! These dark and deadly rock and metal songs will satisfy the horror fan within from “The Dawn of The Dead” to “Anarchy On The Graveyard.” This 8Tracks mix features My Chemical Romance, The Used and OurStage artists The Anix, They Might Be Zombies, and The Static Age.

My Chemical Romance Unleash ‘Conventional Weapons’

My Chemical Romance are known for being chameleons of the modern rock scene. In the early 200′s, the band went from playing dingy clubs in New Jersey to donning military jackets in Pink Floyd-esque stadium shows known as The Black Parade. But before the release of their latest album, 2010′s Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, MCR had recorded a very different batch of material, one that harkened back to the early days, and their aggressive punk rock roots.

The band will be releasing two of these tracks, collectively called Conventional Weapons, each month for five months. Listen to the first two songs, ”Boy Division” and “Tomorrow’s Money,” below and pre-order the 7″ vinyls of all the songs here.

Nicki Minaj – “Come On A Cone”

Nicki Minaj has put out so many music videos in the last few months that we’re starting to lose count. Just a few days after the rapper dropped her video for “Boys,” she very innocently tweeted the link to the visual companion to the wild and wacky track “Come On A Cone.” No bright makeup and flashing screens on this one – instead, we’re given a behind-the-scenes look at Nicki’s life: hanging with Jay-Z and B, posing at award shows, and rapping alongside Waka Flocka Flame. You know, the usual.
