3OH!3 “Streets Of Gold” Album First Listen & Review

3OH!3’s long awaited sophomore album, Streets of Gold drops tomorrow (6.29) leaving fans only hours away from listening to new music.

First rising on the scene by adding a catchy beat to thrash songs, the duo made up of friends Nat Motte and Sean Foreman from Colorado began moving from local areanas to traveling on Vans Warped Tour where they quickly gathered a strong following.

With success of their first single, Don’t Trust Me, the band continued hitting airwaves with their song, Starstrukk ft. Katy Perry, and more recently, their work on Ke$ha’s Blah Blah Blah, followed by her lending her voice to their single, My First Kiss.

Continuing their success with a perfectly timed sophomore album, Streets of Gold was made during a three month studio dedication, but with their more mainstream fan base thanks to gaining Katy Perry and Ke$ha fans, they also made their sound more mainstream as well.

Moving away from the music that made them famous (I’m Not Your Boyfriend, PunkB***h) they traded in the harsh words for repetitions of “Oh Oh Oh’s” and “Fa La La La La’s”. Surely their male audience may have some concerns with the new sound, but the question remains, will they keep their fans and continue growing, or have mainstream listeners for a few songs that have celebrity features?

With the opening track, Beaumont similar to 3OH!3’s sound in their debut album WANT, as well as the second track, I Can Do Anything, while not radio friendly, the songs will please the old fans. From there however, the rest is made for radio, and more targeted, teen girls. While not love songs, the tracks including, Deja Vu and Touchin On My are not something guys will be quick to blast this summer.

The album is good, and does make for a great listening, as long as you don’t listen for too long. With the chorus’ being very similar in many songs, there isn’t enough difference to make the album enjoyable to listen from start to finish in one sitting. Talent did go into their tracks including, Streets of Gold of which the album was titled, but others require some patience in getting through. Are 3OH!3 growing as artists, yes, we’re just not sure they fully perfected their niche and confidence just yet.

Streets of Gold drops June 29th wherever music is sold.

3OH!3 will be celebrating the release of their sophomore album, Streets of Gold on June 29th, but the duo is already releasing some of the songs early.

After all three of their track releases off of Streets of Gold have already made it onto the Billboard Top 100, Sean and Nat, premiered their fourth song, Double Vision today (6.15)

Following the “Na Na Na Na Na Na” chorus line of the other singles, Double Vision makes itself distinct in that it offers more of a summertime vibe than the others, perfect for the months following.

3oh!3 gears up for their sophomore album, Streets Of Gold to premiere this month, and leading up to the release, we have a song from the album for you to preview. Titled, “I Can Do Anything”, the gentlemen go back to their debut album sound being a little rougher around the edges…just how we like it!

What do you think of “I Can Do Anything?”



The All-American Rejects To Headline Warped Tour 2010

The All-American Rejects who climbed to fame over eight years ago on Warped Tour, will be returning again for the tour again this summer, but this time as the headlining act.

After performing at last fall’s Warped Tour 15th Anniversary concert for the summer extravaganza the band was more than excited to announce their involvement with the tour again this year. Last year’s Warped was headlined from Colorado natives, 3OH!3.



3oh!3 Streets Of Gold ALbum Details

3oh!3 have their sophomore album, Streets of Gold out next month, and SB can offer you a preview of what they have in store. With collaborations including Ke$ha, Katy Perry, and Cobra Starship, their music is sure to be both bought on iTunes as well as played on radio stations everywhere. 

Already the band has released a few preview songs including, House Party, My First Kiss, and Touchin’ On My, but it is the songs no one has heard yet, including Double Vision, that will be hopping up the musical charts. The gentlemen do in fact have a different sound than their debut album, most of the songs are toned down and slightly more appropriate for a wider audience, but it seems to be working whether or not they like it. 

During their San Deigo Soma concert on May 29th, the crowd was mostly 14-17 year old boys and girls in tight jeans and revealing tops and dresses, a far cry from their Warped Tour days just a year before. Yet, there is no sign of them losing their original fan base, rather growing a broader following, a path that has been paved in gold.

3oh!3 Premieres Latest Song, “House Party”

Quite different from their debut album, 3OH!3 is back with new music and gearing up for their Streets Of Gold album release which is due out this summer. 

Becoming famous with their thrash and uncensored songs, the duo changed from channeling the younger Warped Tour crowds for a more radio friendly world. Trading in their GarageBand skills to be in recording studios with the likes of Katy Perry for ‘Starstrukk’ and Ke$ha for her song ‘Blah Blah Blah’, 3OH!3 finally premiered their upcoming music to show fans what they have been working on these past months.

Their first song released is titled, “House Party” a slightly less imaginative song on not wanting to go out, but have a party inside instead. With the lyrics bringing on nothing more than the basics, the chorus is complete with the following: “I’m going to have a house party in my house, I’m gonna pour booze down my mouth, I might stay up until the A.M., I think tonight I’m just going to stay in.”

Providing nothing more than a theme song for young high schoolers to play when they’re breaking the law via underaged drinking, 3OH!3 has seemed to quickly lose their older fan base, trading in headlining Warped Tour slots of over 5,000 fans just last summer, to trying to fill clubs on their own for their upcoming Too Fast For Love tour.

Only time will tell what is to come of 3Oh!3, we just hope eventually they’ll go back to the sound that made their fans fall in love with them. Check out their new song, “House Party” below, and let us know what you think of the song. Love it or Hate it?



3Oh!3 Prepare Fans For Another Ke$ha Collaboration

3OH!3 helped teach boys lessons on Ke$ha‘s hit “Blah Blah Blah” and she’s returning the favor on the guys’ next album, Streets of Gold. “First Kiss” was recorded before Ke$ha stormed the charts with “Blah,” and it was actually the backdrop for the first meeting between the party-loving singer and the similarly celebration-happy duo.

3Oh!3’s Sean Foreman recalled how he and bandmate Nathaniel Motte were first introduced to the “Tik Tok” singer.

“We were working with our buddy Benny Blanco and Dr. Luke [on ‘Kiss’], and we had a line for the song. It’s kind of a call and response, and Luke’s like, ‘I know this girl.’ We worked with her and we got a friendship since then,” he said.

“She’s rad,” Motte added. “The success she had with ‘Tik Tok’ was amazing.”

As of now this collaboration with Ke$ha is the only guest appearance on the album, which comes out in June. But the guys note that they’re open to inviting other artists into the studio.

“It’s nice to work [with friends], like when we worked with Katy Perry [on ‘Starstrukk’],” said Foreman.

Are you excited for the new 3Oh!3 album?
