The Devil Wears Prada release new single/video for “Cancer”

January 31, 2023

The Devil Wears Prada released another new single from their latest record “Color Decay”. The song comes with a video. Check out “Cancer”! “Lyrically, this song is about how many of the people I have looked up to and idolized have ended up committing suicide. It is something that has always made me question if I was on the right path in my own life. During the recording process, we learned of a another death, and I immediately assumed it was suicide. It ended up that this person had been secretly battling cancer for years, and for some reason, that made me feel relieved. The track addresses how messed up that thought process is and the guilt that comes along with it.” The Devil Wears Prada on facebook The Devil Wears Prada will be joining August Burns Red on their 20 year anniversary tour through the US.

Falling In Reverse share new single/video “Watch The World Burn”

January 31, 2023

Falling In Reverse are hitting the gas pedal pretty early with their new single “Watch The World Burn”, which was released today. The song is another epic hymn and comes with yet another music video, which lately have always been mini-movies. The lyrics are so fast, even the devil can’t follow. Falling In Reverse are developing further pretty fast in this century. The band’s catalog has reached over 2,7 billion – yes, billion! – streams. Even their latest single “Voices In My Head” has already been played over 95 million times. No wonder, they were #1 in 2022 at SiriusXM’s Octane, while preceding bangers like “Zombified” reached 120 million streams and led the active rock charts back then, a status they already established with “Popular Monster”. The single was released just in time for the second leg of Rockzilla, which takes the band on the road in the US with Papa Roach, Escape The Fate, and Hollywood Undead. What a line-up! Don’t miss this! Tour starts tomorrow, February 1st. Get your tickets HERE. For more [Read More]

Pierce the Veil unleashes new track, Even When I’m Not With You

January 13, 2023

Pierce the Veil are set to release their album The Jaws of Life on 10th February, 2023 via longtime label Fearless Records. Today they have unleashed their latest track, Even When I’m Not With You. Fuentes offered a deep insight into “Even When I’m Not With You,” saying, “Musically, it’s the first song we’ve ever created that utilizes the same looping riff throughout nearly the entire song,” Fuentes explains. “This was something that I have been trying to accomplish for years with our band and I’m excited that we finally found a way to do it with this one.” Regarding the lyrical scope of the track, Fuentes states, “This song was inspired by a text my manager sent me while I was going through a rough time. I thanked her for being there for me, and she said, ‘Even when I’m not with you, I’m still with you.’ That phrase touched my heart and inspired me to write a love song dedicated to my wife about no matter how far away I am on tour, I’m still devoted to her, and we will always [Read More]

Architects – FTTWTE tour finally hits Germany

January 13, 2023

Originally, the “For Those That Wish To Exist” was supposed to hit German stages last year. Unfortunately, the band had to postpone the tour. Almost a year later and also one album later, the band finally made it. I was able to catch the band live in Munich and believe me, they made the wait worthwhile. But first off let’s talk about the bands that opened the night. Show start was supposed to be 7 pm. At 6.50 pm the first opener got on stage a little bit ahead of the schedule. Maybe not the best idea, because the first bands of the night always have to fight with the venue not being very crowded, let alone when the show starts earlier than announced. I don’t really get, why people don’t take the chance to check out opening acts, esp. this one – Sleep Token. The band is from London. Their set is probably best described as dark and gloomy, which totally fits the sound. They were not unknown to parts of the audience and [Read More]
