Normandie release new single/video for ‘Babylon’

January 8, 2021

‘Babylon’ is the latest single/video to be released from Sweden’s Normandie. The track is taken from the forthcoming stunning album, ‘Dark & Beautiful Secrets’ due out 19th February on Easy Life Records. “‘Babylon’ wasn’t supposed to happen” says singer Philip Strand. “With the covid restrictions, it landed us more time to dive into the studio again and play around with new ideas. The song came purely from just having fun and playing around using breaths and coughs as instruments”. He continues “I’ve been searching for my identity my entire life. Going from group to group, crowd to crowd, trying to fit in – finally, I realised that my true identity is something I should form myself”. “Are you following or falling out” is a line I wanted to use to express the way many of these groups behave. You’re either in or out. To me, identity is what you get when you mix all the things you identify with, bits and pieces that then become you as whole”. Soon, the wider world will bear witness [Read More]

Youth Fountain announce new EP and premiere new video for “Deadlocked (acoustic)”

December 9, 2020

Youth Fountain is excited to announce “Letters To Our Former Selves” – Acoustic, out now via Pure Noise Records. The four-song collection features fan favorites from the band’s first full-length album “Letters To Our Former Selves”, re-introducing them as mellowed out acoustic tracks without sacrificing any of the grit and passion that fans have come to love. Fans can hear the EP in full, including a music video for “Deadlocked”. “A lot of people like the band for the energy and grit in our vocals” shares guitarist/vocalist Tyler Zanon. “That’s what carries the project. I tried out the mellow things a bit on these songs, but couldn’t completely go there. Ultimately I’m just me”. As Youth Fountain prepares to move forward, the future perfectly mirrors the past. What began as a solo project by guitarist/vocalist Tyler Zanon in 2013 under the name Bedroom Talk eventually blossomed into a full-blown band by 2017, with the Vancouver-based Youth Fountain (then a duo) proudly announcing their presence with the debut single “Grinding Teeth” and a pair of Pure [Read More]

Of Virtue debuts video for “Pictures Of You (Reimagine)”

December 9, 2020

Michigan metalcore breakouts OF VIRTUE continue their celebration for the newly released Deluxe Edition of their critically celebrated album “What Defines You” that’s out now on SharpTone Records. Today, the band has revealed the video for their new version of “Pictures of You (Reimagine)” featuring Patrick Harney, which is another example of the band’s ability to tear at the heartstrings using one of their fans’ favorite songs. Commenting on the song, vocalist Tyler Ennis states: “’Pictures Of You’ is more than just a personal song. I wrote it about losing my sister, however, it’s also for those dealing with the passing of their own loved ones too. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to hold back tears while listening – it has helped me and my family cope, hopefully it helps you too. It’s not just our song – it’s yours too”. Formed in Lansing, Michigan with the concept of bringing positivity to their listeners, OF VIRTUE came out strong with their 2009 EP “To Breathe Again”. It was this which catapulted [Read More]

Lionheart bring summer festival feeling into your home with the release of their live record

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]

Waterparks share new live video for “Reboot”

November 6, 2020

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]
