There must be something in the water over in Australia that's breeding a new crop of up-and-coming bands. The past couple years alone, I've listened and come to like certain bands only to find out later that they come from down under. Temper Trap, Kimbra, Guineafowl, MonaAnnLisa Wilde. And now comes another band from Australia - Tonight Alive, a made for Warped Tour type of band. Sort of in the same category as Hey Monday, Paramore and We Are The In Crowd, Tonight Alive has all the right tools to find success in the States. They just wrapped their US Tour as part of The Fearless Friends Tour and now they're releasing their new album next month. Read their official bio below:

Introducing Tonight Alive: Australia's hottest new export, power pop-punk quintet Tonight Alive, are gearing up to rock the US with their new album What Are You So Scared Of?, due out Valentine's Day (Feb 14) on Fearless Records. Lead by Jenna McDougall, their 19 year old ingénue-with-attitude, Tonight Alive has exploded onto the pop-punk scene with their ebullient, fist-pumping anthemery, arena-sized hooks and high-voltage live performances. Already a name in their native Australia, Tonight Alive turns their attention to the US as one of the year’s most anticipated new bands. Tonight Alive will tour the US with Go Radio March-May and will return for additional touring June-August. Don’t miss the scene’s next breakout band!
