There’s a new band on the radar.

Scope out (above) one of the first performances of “Boys You Do (Get Back At You)” by Arizona natives, The Summer Set.

“Boys You Do” is the lead single from the band’s upcoming debut album, “Love Like This” slated for an October 13th release date via Razor & Tie records.

Their sound is pop/rock with an original twist, it’s unique and just how we like it!

This Century Band

This Century answered fan questions on Myspace and a few excerpts are below as responded to by drummer, Ryan Goose.

How did you get your band name?
The band was trying to come up with a name for probably the better part of two weeks. We couldn’t find anything that we all could all agree on so Sean says, “I’ll just be happy if we can find a name this century”. I guess that’s how it came about…now we just spend our time trying to apply meaning to the name.

How did this band get started?
Myself (Ryan) & Sean had been playing together in a previous band that we weren’t happy with so we decided to form our own band. Alex, Sean’s brother, was probably the best bass player that we knew but he was so young that we were reluctant to have him join the band. Long story short we gave in and Alex brought Joel into the band with him. You would never know it but they are actually the same age.

What bands are you influenced by?
Mainly Mozart. He has sweet chops.

If you were a furry, what animal would you be? Why that animal?
I would probably be a bear…people seem to associate me wth one. Sean would be a velociraptor. He has a dinosaur obsession.

Why should people listen to your band?
Because our singer is pretty. Other than that if you like catchy rock music we might be for you!!

If you were chosen to be in Guitar Hero/Rock Band, what song would you want in the game? How hard do you think it would be to five-star on expert?
“Running.” It would make you feel awesome about your gaming skills…until you played a different song on expert.

If you won a Grammy, who would you thank?
My dogs for always being there for me. After that we would mention all of our supporters. Thanks Japan!!

If you could change something about the music industry, what would it be?
I would keep the focus on quality. Live shows over myspace plays. Not everyone is like this but I think there are plenty of great artist out there that get over looked by next weeks buzz band.

Memorable tour experience?
Waking up in a field full of Alpaca’s. Creeeepy

What is something that most fans don’t know about you?
Two of us are vegetarian & the other two are sellouts. I won’t say who the sellouts are but Joel & I don’t eat meat.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I am a fan of yoga, climbing, eating & doing nothing at all. I’m great at the last one.

What kind of hidden talents do you have?
I have the ability to see chakras. Don’t tell anyone. Oh, Joel can impersonate pretty much anyone right after meeting them. It’s unreal.

If you haven’t listened to this band yet, become a cool kid and listen here!

Several stars of The CW’s bloodsucking teen drama The Vampire Diaries were arrested in Georgia last month on charges of disorderly conduct after they allegedly flashed motorists during a photoshoot with photographer Tyler Shields.

One photo showed a “female being held by her legs by the other females, as if they were trying to throw her over,” a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office report reveals.

According to The Monroe County Reporter, Nina Dobrev, 20, Candice Accola, 22, Sara Canning, 22, and Kayla Ewell, 24 — and two companions — were booked by local deputies on a bridge about 60 miles south of Atlanta August 22.
