Music Video’s 25/05/18

Now you know what it’s time for! And it’s actually on time two weeks in a row! Now that my workload has been cut by my finishing my radio show; The Rock Show, I have a little more time for planning and everything else in my life, including this post. Now let’s get down to business, ten recent music videos.

As Chvrches get ready for the release of their new record, ‘Love Is Dead, they have dropped a video for their track, ‘Miracle’.


Aussie metalcore group Northlane are gearing up for this year’s Slam Dunk Festival in good style as they have dropped a video for ‘Hearmachine’. It’s a track about the human condition and will act as the final single from their third record, ‘Mesmer’.


A few weeks ago, up and comers to the Pop Punk scene, Woes dropped their new EP, ‘Self Help’ and with this video it’s lead single ‘HLB2’ shows the band acting as judges in a talent show, casting their votes against auditions from acts across the fields of singers, dancers and more!


We’re going to the metalcore group August Burns Red for the next video, and this track in question is off their eighth record, ‘Phantom Anthem’. The video is something eerie which sees the band performing in a number of rooms within an abandoned and derelict home. You have to see it to believe it. You can video ‘King Of Sorrow’ below.


This is one of my favourite bands at the moment. Melodic and fun post-hardcore newcomers Sink The Ship seem to be everywhere on the scene at the moment have just dropped their new record, ‘Persevere’. They’ve recently dropped a video for the track, ‘Out Of Here’, which is just another hit for them.


I do like a little bit of everything on these posts and I’ve observed recently that I haven’t been doing so. This next video comes to legendary group Napalm Death. Their track ‘Standardization’ is taken from the band’s recently released rarities compilation record, ‘Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs’ which is made up of several lesser known cuts dating from 2004 to 2016. It’s one track which is typically fast-paced, relentless and best of all, critical of modern society.


Now, for the next video’s we’ll go to another legendary band in the Grunge genre.  This is of course, Alice In Chains as they have debuted a new video to accompany their new track, ‘The One You Know’. This is their first fresh material since their 2013 record, ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ so let’s see what we’re working with.


Earlier this year, The Used has to reschedule their tour due to a family emergency. That tour is coming in August but before then, the band have dropped a highly cinematic video for their track, ‘The Nexus’. It’s off the band’s latest record, ‘The Canyon’ and is full of creepy costumes mixed with some startling visuals.


Next, is American Pop-Punkers turned folk duo; This Wild Life. Now the pair have been teasing new material for quite a while and have a new video for us! It’s taken off their upcoming release, ‘Petaluma’, which is released on June 22nd 2018. This is ‘Westside’.


Now the best for last. Jonathan David is ready for his solo debut record but before any of that happens, he has dropped a video which sees the vocalist being held captive and being tortured whilst in an insane asylum which acts as part of a story that is set alongside his previous releases in ‘Everyone’ and ‘What It Is’.


And that’s it for another week! Tune in to the new music video list next Friday to see if it is kept up for three consective weeks again. (I’ll try my best to do so).

Music Video’s 18/05/18

Now I know I missed last week! I’ve been a little overwhelmed as of late but there is a list this week! But enough of me chatting away, here are my picks for recent music videos!

First up is August Burns Red. They’ve dropped a creepy new video for ‘King Of Sorrow’ but it is really amazing!


Now, Against The Current have recently announced a new era and with a new era comes new music… and new music videos. Check out the new era in Strangers Again.


Ahead of their upcoming visit to the UK next month, German rockers Alazka have released a video to accompany, ‘Everglow’, the latest cut from their debut record, ‘Phoenix’.


Next, New York deathcore group Emmure showcase a quite gruesome killing spree in their new video for ‘Ice Man Confessions’. The track was inspired by Richard Kuklinski, who’s most known as the Ice Man Killer whom frontman Frankie Palmeri plays.


Ahead of the release of their new record, ‘Reverence’ Aussie Hard-hitters Parkway Drive have dropped a new video for their track ‘Prey’. This is is the third single the band have released prior to their new record.


Like Moths To Flames are proving to be one’s to watch at the moment as the band have lifted a new video for ‘Empty The Same, the latest track from ‘Dark Divine’.


Moving to Sussex. The trio known as Gloo have revealed a new video off their debut record, ‘A Pathetic Youth’. This is the video for Holiday.


Palm Reader are another band to be watching and for good reason. Everyone is loving their dark, dreamlike tracks and now they have a new video which goes alongside that criteria. It’s taken off their third studio record, ‘Braille’ via Silent Cult Records.


As Chvrches get ready for the official release of their new record, Love Is Dead, they have now released a video for ‘Miracle’.


Lastly on the new video list is Varials. They’re coming off the back of the band’s record and the fantastic track for the last pick of this week is Empire of Dirt. It’s from their record, ‘Pain Again’ which was released via Fearless Records and you just have to watch it. I mean it.

Good Charlotte Teasing Something?

We have to ask, what is going on in Good Charlotte’s camp?

Last week, they have been teasing something on their social media, by posting a series of Gifs. Now a week later, there’s been no answers. The gifs included the theme of placing skulls on the faces of the members of Good Charlotte, this week has taken a turn for the stage. So far, three other artists have had the same aesthetic.

I think the most bizarre on that list is Celine Dion.

Loathe Recruit Feisal El-Khazragi As New Bassist

Here’s a name you might recall. Feisal El-Khazragi. He was formally in Holding Absence but now has been recruited by Loathe as their new Bassist.

He’s already performed with Loathe for a few shows, including their set at Heavy Music Awards launch show in Manchester and their set at Teddy Rocks Festival.


Against The Current Release Two Singles.

The time is now for Against The Current, well the new era of the band as we know them.

After a few weeks of teasing, American rockers Against The Current have finally unveiled two brand new singles, Strangers Again and Almost Forgot.

It’s in with the new as they depart from the In Our Bones era of things but it shows it’s still the band we know and love!
