Catharsis is Brand New's stock and trade, but they've never let that emotional release come easy. Over the course of their career, the mercurial Long Island crew have taken increasingly puritanical strides to put a cork on their rage, opting to stimulate minds rather than bodies. On Science Fiction, their long-awaited (eight years!
"Masterpiece" is how Rolling Stone described Imperial Bedroom when it was first released in 1982. Yet, in the years since, critical consensus has favoured Elvis Costello's "Angry Young Man" phase of the late '70s over the genre-hopping pop classicist he became in the '80s. All of which is to say: Imperial Bedroom is an odd choice for the full album live treatment.
the filters, and effects added to the images projected onto them added another layer between fans and the band. For all Hetfield's talents as a frontman and guitarist, he wasn't able to bridge that gap with his broad proclamations of solidarity with the "family." That changed when all four members gathered on the small platform that jutted out into the audience. Claiming the band were "re-creating the garage" that had birthed them, it was the loosest and most comfortable the band seemed all night.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
