Hello everybody! It’s that time of the week again, Friday. It’s every Friday I release a list of the ten best recent music videos from the Rock genre so I can give it to you, my followers and hopefully discover someone new! Kicking things off this week’s list is metal trio Spiritbox, who’ve returned with another fantastic single, ‘Electric Cross’.
Moving to someone I know you probably won’t have heard of is Yorkshire group Hands Off Gretel as they bring the S.A.S.S in their new music video where they take over a hotel room for themselves! I should mention it was directed and edited by their vocalist Lauren Tate as well!
Next up are some personal favourites of my own, Chapter And Verse. It’s a good release, following on from ‘A Devil In Blue’ and ‘Magazines’. but frontman Josh Carter has said the following on the track: ‘Ink’ is about feeling disillusioned with adulthood and the dangers that lie in obsessing over self-improvement. The song is unlike anything we’ve done before and we’ve been really embracing the evolution of what we do. Chapter And Verse have become a vessel for us to properly embrace life and for us, this song serves as a reminder that focusing only on how to be happy can actually give you the opposite outcome.”
And adding another British group to this week follow is the collective, itoldyouiwouldeatyou. They’ve just released something new in the form of ‘Young American’, the latest release from their debut record, ‘Oh Dearism’.
Fueled by Ramen artist Grandson has shared a new video for ‘6:00″, taken from his debut release, a modern tragedy vol.1. The video was released in conjunction with Campaign Zero, an Organisation dedicated to eradicating police violence in America.
Time for a return. this is in the form of slam metallers Arcania as they have reunited and released a brand new track, ‘Exterminate The Liberated’. It’s off their soon to be released EP, ‘Tyrannical Hierarchy: Vol.1.
Something new from some legends right now. We all need them and this is from the legendary group The Smashing Pumpkins. Things get a little freaky.
And we’re keeping going with some pretty good releases at the moment. The next video comes from the four-piece rock group, Dead Friends. Vocalist Austin Radford has shared:
“I think subconsciously people feel like we need our lives to be defined by something comprehensible – anything from political or religious affiliation to a job or a favourite sports team. ‘Torches’ is about clinging too closely to those life-defining elements, and the devastating realization that you’re not a complete person without them.”
And for the second to last video, something just a little more cinematic as we get toward the end of this weeks list. This can only be Underoath’s newest video for ‘ihateit’.
And this week I certainly have saved the best for last. Bullet For My Valentine recently dropped the video for ‘Not Dead Yet’ a video which was shot following Summersonic earlier this year in Japan.
And that’s it for another round of music videos this week. Be sure to check out next weeks post of the ten latest and greatest music videos of the week.
