Matchbox Twenty Releases New Single, First In 11 Years

credit: iTunes

Matchbox Twenty has released their first single since 2012's North album. The new song is entitled Wild Dogs (Running in a Slow Dream) and will be on their upcoming album, Where The Light Goes. It's not like they really went anywhere, the members have all just been working on their own projects. Frontman Rob Thomas released his album Chip Tooth Smile in 2019. He proceeded to tour with it and then Matchbox was preparing to launch a tour in the summer of 2020. Clearly, that did not happen so they rescheduled for 2021, 2022, and now, they have rebranded their initial tour for 2023. This aligns perfectly with the music that they have coming out, WTLG drops on May 26th and is available for pre-order. 

So, what did the boys have in store for their new single? Was it worth the wait? That's a solid yes. Reminiscent of Bruce Spingsteen's Born To Run and Badlands, anyone who lives in a small town and is desperate to get out, can relate. With lyrics like: "We were crash hard falling like a waterfall, Slow sweat dancing in the music hall, We were shining, yeah, we were trying, Got a slow start running, we were picking up steam, All time lows and small town scenes," it has a strong Bruce vibe. More so, it is fun, happy, light, and sweet. Maybe not what Matchbox Twenty wants to hear but they have created a catchy hit that is setting the tone and high expectations for the rest of the album.

Wild Dogs (Running in a Slow Dream) is now available for download and their new album, Where The Light Goes, will be released on May 26th. Plus, check them out on tour this whole Spring/Summer.

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
