Weatherstate release music video for new single ‘Hangar’

February 23, 2021

Weymouth punk band Weatherstate released their massively hooky new single ‘Hangar’ the other week and now the track has a music video with an extraterrestrial theme. “When we had started shaping up the original demo ideas for “Hangar” in the spring of last year, I was bouncing riffs off of our long time video director and pal Ben Pollard” says guitarist Callan Milward. “Whilst we had no initial plans in place for music videos at that time, his initial vibe on the track kept coming back to thoughts about outer space, which ended up snowballing into something much greater. It’s safe to say this is perhaps the start of what’s to come and we can’t wait to drip feed our barmy world into everyone. Thanks to everyone who’s joined the initiative so far”. “Hangar” is the first track the band has released via their new label Rude Records and the riff-fuelled composition is expertly produced by Four Year Strong’s Alan Day. Rising to the challenges that COVID has posed, Weatherstate have been working with Day as a producer remotely and, [Read More]

THE RUMJACKS RELEASE NEW LYRIC VIDEO “GOODNIGHT & MAKE MENDS”

February 22, 2021

‘Good Night & Make Mends’ is a punk rock mourning song of acceptance. It is the last song on the bands’ upcoming album ‘Hestia’, which will be released March 12th, 2021. Reading through a late friend’s poetry, the songwriter recalls all of the times the two friends casually said: “let’s write a song together sometime!” and never got around to it. Using lines of her poetry to form a call and response, the two friends, now separated by death, finally wrote their song together, albeit too late. The sorrowful tone of the uilleann pipes sets the scene for the song which reminisces on memories of drunkenly parading through the Boston snow after closing time. You can pre-order ‘Hestia’ here -> https://abcmusic.lnk.to/hestia “Hestia” Tracklisting 01 Naysayers 02 Bullhead 03 Hestia 04 Through These Iron Sights 05 Sainted Millions 06 Tell Me What Happened 07 Rhythm of Her Name 08 Golden Death 09 Lizzie Borden 10 Light in My Shadow 11 Wonderust 12 Athens to the North 13 Motion 14 Goodnight & Make Mends   For more information [Read More]

THE SPILL CANVAS RELEASE NEW SINGLE + VIDEO “DARKSIDE”

February 18, 2021

The Spill Canvas is back at it again. They’ve released the next single in anticipation of their forthcoming album “Conduit”, entitled “Darkside”. This is the third release since the announcement of the album, following the releases of “Firestorm” and “Molecules” feat. Sherry Dupree-Bemis of Eisley. “Darkside” is out now; fans can watch the video here and stream now here: On the track, lead vocalist and founding member, Nick Thomas, shares: “I feel this 3rd single from ‘Conduit’ is the most suitable song to demonstrate our concerted effort to make the most dynamically vast rock album we could. Mining the lyrical content from several old demos, I couldn’t be happier with the outcome-a cohesive portrait of a wildly toxic relationship from my past; wrought with infidelity and jealousy on both sides. Merging with the minor key, up-tempo groove, there’s an attitude of darkness the title references that we sought to adequately represent on this new record”. The band’s highly anticipated record, “Conduit”, will be out March 5, 2021 via Pure Noise Records. Fans can pre-order the [Read More]

Bishop Briggs new release of “Someone Else” ft. Jacob Banks is the comforting hug we all need

February 12, 2021

Bishop Briggs has released an amazing new song, Someone Else featuring Jacob Banks and it truly is amazing! The song is the comforting warm hug that the world is in such desperate need of.  Bishop Briggs explains, I’M NOT CRYING, YOU ARE. I love you all. Thank you for being so supportive during this particularly painful and sensitive time. I wrote “Someone Else” about feeling overwhelmed by existing in the world. I texted Jacob Banks this dream I had of hearing his voice on this song. Within a few hours he sent back a version of him singing along to the track full of his iconic vocal tone that you really only come across once or twice in your lifetime if you are lucky. I began tearing up within seconds of hearing his voice in the intro of the song. Jacob has one of those voices that you read about in the music history books. He is among the voices that will stand the test of time and have the ability to take your breath away. [Read More]

Architects – new record “For Those That Wish To Exist” released today

February 26, 2021

The wait is over! UK Metalcore giants Architects released their 9th studio record “For Those That Wish To Exist” today via Epitaph. It follows their Top 10 record “Holy Hell” from 2018, which dealt with the tragic loss of the bands’ guitarist and brother Tom Searle. The first few releases from the record – Dead Butterflies, Animals and Black Lungs – all have a few million views already on Youtube. Their latest single ‘Meteor’ was released only a few days ago: The band was joined by special guests Mike Kerr (Royal Blood), Simon Neil (Biffy Clyro) and Winston McCall (Parkway Drive) on FTTWTE. The album is self-produced and deals with how to proceed with planet Earth despite the continuing, slow destruction by its human inhabitants. The Brits were always pretty open on their cooperation with Sea Shepherd (Sam Carter is an ambassador for Sea Shepherd), their open critic on foxhunts as well as the production of sustainable merchandise. But despite the partly hopeless situation, the band doesn’t give up the fierce fight and looks hopefully ahead. [Read More]
