New track from Strawberry Girls is a throwback to 2000, check out First Kiss

September 29, 2017

Strawberry Girls are ready to take you back to 2000 with their new track, First Kiss. The new song takes you back to the early 2000’s days of post-hardcore that the band grew up on.  As Guitarist Zac Garren shared, “It’s heavily influenced by the more progressive bands of that genre that defined our tastes throughout Jr High and High School. Bands like At The Drive-In, The Fall Of Troy, and The Mars Volta. I’d say it’s the closest we’ve come to writing something similar to my previous band, Dance Gavin Dance, which was fun to do.” “First Kiss” was the perfect choice for the title as the phrase creates nostalgia. Garren explained, “The title comes from the nostalgic nature we get from the song, which I personally view as a metaphor for the first time experiencing something new and special in life.” Strawberry Girls have always been a very hands-on and DIY band and as Garren added, “We enjoy the creative freedom that comes with that.” Every part of the new single was done by the [Read More]

Motionless In White release “hot” new video

September 27, 2017

Motionless In White released a new video today for the song ‘Necessary Evil’. The song itself features Jonathan Davis from Korn. As Chris Motionless stated in various interviews, the idea to get Jonathan Davis on board for the song came during the writing process. Korn have always been one of Chris’ favorite bands. Both bands toured together last year, so he decided to ask Jonathan Davis if he’d do guest vocals and obviously he accepted. Check out the new video here: Chris Motionless on the collaboration with Jonathan Davis   Motionless In White just finished a tour through Australia and will soon be touring home territory again. The Graveyard Shift Tour with The Amity Affliction, Miss May I and William Control starts out September 28th in Las Vegas, NV. Go fetch your tickets. You don’t want to miss this!
