2014's Faces was Mac Miller first foray into darker territories. While it constitutes one of the highest points in Miller's career, it also showed more frontally than ever another facet of the rapper/producer, darker and more tortured. This aspect would later infuse all his work and inexorably push him into bad habits that would cost him his life in 2018.
Faces is going to finally be available on streaming services on October 15th.
A video for "Colors and Shapes" was made for the occasion:
Last night during a show at Anaheim's Chain Reaction, the ever prolific post-hardcore vocalist wunderkind Kurt Travis announced a new band with Brandon Ewing called Gold Necklance.

They have released a video for the single "Vibe With Me", as well announced their debut self-titled record which will be released via Kill Iconic Records sometime in November of this year.
