Delair The Liar announce new EP and share new song

November 26, 2021

The majestic Delair The Liar have announced brand new EP ‘Eat Your Own’, which will be released 10th December via Rude Records. This wonderful band has also released their new single ‘No Accident’ which is taken off the upcoming EP. The single follows on from singles ‘No Thanks’, ‘Furnace’ and ‘Halloween’ which are all included on the upcoming EP. Speaking about the new single, vocalist Ffin Colley says – “There are some in your life that can see every part of your mechanism, as if you’re made of glass. All your fragility and worry, all your buried sadness, it’s completely unmasked to them. It comes with time, dedication and vulnerability in the relationship and it can offer support when you most need it but are unable to ask, the adverse side being that these people will see your weakness even when you don’t want them to.” Music, at its best, opens the door to an honesty that borders on disconcerting. For London four-piece Delair The Liar, expressing a central truth is at the very core [Read More]

Of Mice & Men share title track from their upcoming record “Echo”

November 25, 2021

Gold-selling hard rockers Of Mice & Men — Aaron Pauley (bass + vocals ), Valentino Arteaga (drums), Alan Ashby (guitar), and Phil Manansala (guitar) — will release their seventh album “Echo” on December 3 via SharpTone Records. Today, the quartet shared the title track to the new album. “‘Echo’ is a song about one’s growing sensitivity to the transient nature of life, and one’s awareness to the similarities between the current human experience and human experiences of the past,” says Pauley. The much-anticipated complete album is comprised of the previously issued Timeless and Bloom EPs, along with the new and final Ad Infinitum EP. The EP will be released on vinyl in April 2022. The Southern California-based quartet used their time spent in the 2020 lockdown, which was the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, in an incredibly productive way. They recorded all of the music on Echo during that time by working remotely via Zoom and sharing files. They had not been in the same room together since February 2020 and the start of the [Read More]

Peaks! release new single & video “Black Guns & White Drugs”

November 25, 2021

It is hard to believe that the new single ‚Black Guns / White Drugs‘ is only the 4th career release ever from this exceptional Alt-Rock duo from the North of Italy who entered the stage of music under the name of Peaks! towards the end of 2020 with their jawdropping debut song ‚Blackout‘. Fast forward no more than ten months – and their debut release cracks the magical threshold of 1 million Spotify streams already! Following on from two more smash releases with ‘Fired Up’ and ‚Turin‘, both showcasing the band’s versatility and their ability to become a sustainable force in the major league of music, the new release comes as a very logical next level step completing the picture of PEAKS!‘ wide-ranging talent. Soundwise it closes the circle a little bit, certainly being a family member of ‚Blackout‘, but this time like an older brother who looks beyond personal topics and with an awareness of the burning issues affecting all of us in society as a whole. Peaks! on the background of the new [Read More]

Pridelands announce debut album and share new single “The Lake Of Twisted Limbs”

November 25, 2021

Aussie metal quintet Pridelands have revealed new single ‘The Lake of Twisted Limbs’ from their forthcoming debut album “Light Bends” that’s due out January 14th via SharpTone Records. Commenting on the new single, the band states, The Lake of Twisted Limbs was a song that in a lot of ways came naturally in the writing process but took an emotional toll on all of us. It’s about attempting to pull someone back from the brink of total self-destruction and how ultimately that attempt is futile if that person refused to be saved. Getting better is sadly a choice that someone needs to make for themselves. So, in essence, the song is about reaching out despite being aware of the futility there. I think we’ve all felt that in one way or another – perhaps from both sides of the coin.” Pridelands new song follows a string of crushing singles from Light Bends that the band has rolled out over the last few months including ‘The Walls’ and ‘Heavy Tongue’, which has stirred up excitement and [Read More]

Waxflower reveal video for latest single “Soak”

November 25, 2021

Brisbane-based Waxflower have revealed their brand new video for their latest single “Soak”. Perfectly encapsulating frontman Tristan Higginson’s raw and emotive vocals, the video sees him being force-fed red pills and later waking up on a bed floating on eerily desolate water. The video was directed by the band’s guitarist Nick Hargens and Tristan’s brother Giles Higginson. Tristan has said of the video: “Soak was our most ambitious shoot yet in both premise and scale. Though I was both pushed out into a lake on a mattress, as well as tied up and manhandled, the full band shots were the hardest. The heat of the room coupled with the high energy required had my heart rate through the roof — a great way to get me into character as the health panicked hypochondriac I was when the song was penned. The video provides an abstract look into these struggles through bizarre instances of internal conflict.”  Nick continued, “The music video for Soak was partly undiscovered ground for us. We really wanted to make something that [Read More]

November 26, 2021

SMRTDEATH shares new single “Sober” – new album out in February 2022

November 25, 2021

Smrtdeath, born Mike Skwark, has announced his new album “it’s fine” due out digitally February 4 via Epitaph Records. The album will be available on CD and vinyl April 8. Produced by Grammy-nominated Matt Malpass (Blink 182, Machine Gun Kelly, Yungblud), with the exception of the final track which was made with longtime collaborate Taxpurposes, it’s fine examines the space between personal happiness and global sorrow. The album takes his classic blend of pop, rap, emo, trap, punk, and more and adds big, organic drum sounds and huge harmonies. Skwark is no longer the frontman of his own productions, he is playing all the instruments in his own one-man-band. Written and recorded during the pandemic, one of the most dramatically isolating experiences of our lives, the album finds Smrtdeath’s Mike Skwark in a surprisingly contented state, newly coupled up and living in bliss. But the thing about your happiness is that it displaces your unhappiness. When you’re single and unhappy, you spend time with your friends, and maybe your unhappiness and availability is something your [Read More]
