November 6, 2020

  Bay Area’s (CA) reigning kings of heavy hardcore first stormed into the scene in 2007 with their debut album: »The Will To Survive«. Taking influence from bands like BLOOD FOR BLOOD, HATEBREED, and MADBALL; LIONHEART came out swinging with a full-blown assault of blistering metallic hardcore. They quickly followed it up with 2010’s »Built On Struggle«, 2012’s »Undisputed« and years of nonstop touring. Following a short break after their release »Undisputed«, the band came back stronger than ever with 2014’s »Welcome To The Westcoast«. The album debuted at #1 on both iTunes Metal and GooglePlay Metal Charts. LIONHEART stormed into the scene again in January 2016 with »Love Don’t Live here«. The album title, a nod to a classic R&B/ Motown song by the same name, shows the bands unwillingness to conform to the typical „hardcore mold“, as well as the bitter and unforgiving lyrical content the band is known for. November 2017 saw Lionheart unleash »Welcome To The Westcoast II«. A sequel to »Welcome To The Westcoast« (2014), the album brought forth a [Read More]

Yesterday Waterparks released the live video for “[Reboot]” off of the upcoming live album and concert film “FANDOM: LIVE IN THE UK”. Fans can watch the video and pre-order the CD + Blu-Ray DVD bundles at http://smarturl.it/FANDOMLIVE “FANDOM: LIVE IN THE UK” was recorded and filmed in January 2020 at O2 Academy in Birmingham, UK at a sold-out show on the FANDOM Tour. Executive producers Awsten Knight and Jawn Rocha utilized practical and special effects to create an other-worldly experience that is both exhilaratingly euphoric and inimitably intimate. Frontman Awsten Knight shares: “I’ve always wanted Waterparks to have a live concert DVD because I used to love watching them from other bands so much. The thing is, I wanted to approach it differently and try to make it into more of an art piece rather than strictly documentation of a night. As a co-director, I wanted it to be like an IMAX Waterparks show but in an alternate universe and so every song is warped out and stylized to look how it feels to me while [Read More]

Black River Delta release new song “Shakin”

November 5, 2020

Black River Delta, the swedish Alternative/Blues/Rock-band, reports back with their new single ‘Shakin’, which also comes with a brand new video: The song is available on all streaming platforms. You can also find it on the EA Sports NHL21 soundtrack. “Shakin’ arose from the desire to, with the help of two distorted guitars, tell the story of a man, who leaves everything behind to find his luck far away from home. Just to find out, that maybe he left it behind. Sort of a ‘the grass is always greener on the other side’-story, accompanied by fuzz-guitars and heavy drums. Black River Delta is an Alternative rockband from Bollnäs, Sweden. So far they released two studio records: “Devil On The Loose” (2016) and “Vol. II” (2018). The raw Blues-Rock-sound of the band is influenced by classic Blues legends like Robert Johnson, the raw style of R.L. Burnside and modern artists like The Black Keys, Gary Clark Jr. and BRMC. Their ability to join old Blues with modern Rock led them to several tours through Europe and [Read More]

November 5, 2020

Anti-Flag has issued “A Dying Plea” to the world with their newest track, featuring DE’WAYNE, Marcia Richards, Julise Della Gary and Tom Morello. The political punk band also released the bone-chilling music video directed and produced by Keith Ray and INDECLINE along with the single. Dropping during one of the most important election weeks in modern history, “A Dying Plea Vol. 1” is just that – a plea to the people to come together and fight for change. On today’s release, the band shares the following message: “The 2020 election has highlighted the heightened divide between so many Americans. It has also clearly defined the unity among the ruling classes, who hand pick and present political candidates who have no intention of challenging an unjust structure of power which protects and enriches the nation’s economic elites”. “Their unwillingness to waver on the marginalization, persecution and murder of BIPOC whether by economic isolation, environmental disaster or militarized and racist police forces. Their inability to break from the corporations that buy, sell and trade their policies and [Read More]

Hailing from Melbourne, Stuck Out are thrilled to announce the release of their second EP “Lie Through Your Teeth” out on December 18 through Greyscale Records in Australia and Sharptone Records for the rest of the world. “Lie Through Your Teeth” is an EP based around the consequences when we lie to others, we lie to ourselves, and we in turn are lied to.
