Check Out PVRIS Utterly Fantastic Performance At The Valiant Champions Finals Ceremony

You have to see it to believe it.

Check Out Hot Milk Play Their Track, ‘I Just Wanna Know What Happens When I’m Dead’ Live In Manchester

Hot Milk were finally able to head out on their debut UK Headlining tour in the last few months and it was amazing.

It was full of all the pent up energy we’ve had in lockdown and every last bit got tapped out of us. This just proved we’ve got plenty more to come from this band.

Just have a look at this.

The band have shared footage from their hometown show in Manchester of their opening rendition of ‘I JUST WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I’M DEAD’ below.

We Came As Romans recently have been touring their long-overdue ‘To Plant A Seed’ anniversary tour, which featured The Devil Wears Prada as support.

And with the two bands touring with one another, WCAR took the opportunity to prank TWDP in quite possibly one of the best ways on the last date at The Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac, MI and how did they do that? Oh by covering Prada’s 2006 scene classic ‘Dogs Can Grow Beards All Over’ on stage with them.

And there’s a bit of fan shot footage to go with it!

Underoath Announce Digital Ghost Cinematic Concert

Metal innovators, Underoath, have announced they will be performing their highly anticipated new record Voyeurist in its entirety via their Digital Ghost cinematic concert on December 3rd, in partnership with Moment House.

The Digital Ghost event will continue to push further down the path the band blazed in the digital performance space last year with their groundbreaking Observatory event. The Observatory was considered a major reference point in the evolution of livestreaming with its influence apparent in digital concerts from major artists thereafter. It was praised by everyone from Revolver and Loudwire to Forbes and CNBC for the unique way it treated fans to a raw and visceral experience with the hits they longed to see played live while being robbed of concerts during the pandemic. In addition to the enjoyment it brought fans during a difficult time, it reached a level of success where the band was able to replace the tour income they would have otherwise lost in 2020 and keep a team of over 20 live music professionals employed for a month while the industry was struggling to provide jobs.  

This time around, Digital Ghost offers something entirely different – a chance to be part of a communal moment built around Underoath music that nobody has ever heard before. Voyeurist is arguably the most ambitious record of the band’s career, and it’s only fitting that the first time fans hear it will be during this equally ambitious event. Get your tickets now for Digital Ghosthrough Moment House and secure your spot in witnessing a pivotal moment in Underoath history.  

Quote from Tim McTague of Underoath about Digital Ghost:

“When we started conceptualizing the Voyeurist event, we knew that we wanted to do something different than a traditional live stream. We have done three of them and, coming back a year after Observatory, we knew we didn’t want to just repeat the cycle. One of the biggest goals was the idea of blending narrative with the visuals. Threading the needle on a live performance while adding in cinematic elements was a big part of Digital Ghost. The goal of Observatory was never to re-create a static live performance, and I think Digital Ghost is an extension of that thought. In the end, Digital Ghost is an attempt to push boundaries as a band and set a new bar for what virtual live experiences can be. With everything we do, there is a lot of risk and some lofty goals. It’s pretty special to conceptualize these projects and then watch them form in real time, especially when you have a finite amount of time and resources.”

Quote from Arjun Mehta, co-founder and CEO of Moment House about Digital Ghost:

“We’re thrilled to partner with Underoath for their Digital Ghost cinematic concert ahead of the release of their new album,” said Moment House co-founder and CEO Arjun Mehta. “The band have masterfully embraced this powerful new medium and we can’t wait to help bring their remarkable creative vision to life with their fans around the world.”

Over the past few months, Underoath have continued to excite fans with a cryptic release plan that has included four singles from Voyeurist to date. Each track revealed has been accompanied by a deeper glance into the meaning behind the new record, which functions more as a multimedia art project than a standard album campaign. At the heart of this release is the immersive website, voyeurist.io, where visitors are able to peer in on other fans, as well as the band, begging the question of whether or not what they’re witnessing is happening in real time or is something pre-recorded. This serves as a microcosm of the overall effect that a digital existence has on us all and provides some insight into the concept of “digital ghosts” that is essential to the meaning behind the record. 

Voyeurist marks the first time in Underoath’s storied career that they took the recording process completely into their own hands. The result is the most collaborative album of Underoath’s career and, anchored in a profound respect for each other, one that left no stone unturned creatively. The band refers to Voyeurist as “high-def violence” – technologically advanced, but undeniably visceral. Conceptually, Voyeurist has several interrelated meanings, each tying back to the concepts of how we curate ourselves through social media and how that facade masks a lot of what we actually experience in life. The album is a cohesive listening experience with enough layers to provide fans with a fresh take and new favorite track on every spin. Leading up to the album release, fans have been able to discover clips of new songs in exchange for granting camera access through the band’s immersive website, voyeurist.io.

Rising Melodic Techno Producer Gone Share Live Video For ‘Saved’

Melodic techno producer and percussionist GONE has released his debut EP, SOURCES on the 28th of May via Enchanté Records. On the EP, listeners will find the ear-catching track, ‘SAVED’. The EP was composed, mixed and vocals provided by GONE while the mastering was done at London based studio Noize Music and has already received support from COMPLEX, Tonspion and LIBERATION, playlisted by TSUGI Mag as well as UK radio Kiss FM with Justin Wilkes, and BBC Radio Cardiff’s Sian Eleri.

The French pianist and percussionist was born and is currently based in Paris, where he has been exposed to the vibrant and dynamic music scene that surrounds the city. Rich in complexity, SOURCES can be compared to the likes of Ben Bohmer, Jan Blomqvist and Stephan Bodzin.

Spamming across the web of multiple universes, GONE takes an elegant and refined approach to create the complex set of rhythmic patterns found within SOURCES. Dancing amongst genres and lightly acknowledging each, the EP stands as a testament to the synth-fuelled sounds and deep rolling basslines that drive many a listener into a vibrant haze. Organic fuelled electronica at its finest, SOURCES leaves the listener eager to hear more from the rising DJ.

The rising producer tells us about the unique project: “I am starting a musical adventure where I will project myself all over the world. Sharing my world with as many people as possible is an absolute dream. I am also preparing a dark scenography, intrinsically linked to the history of GONE. My music is an escape. In front of my speakers, I often try to create a parallel universe, beyond the foreground instruments and combining voice with music without one overriding the other.”

Swedish Psychedelic Hard Rock Band GAUPA Sign With Nuclear Blast Records

Today, Nuclear Blast Records are happy to announce the signing of exciting young psychedelic hard rock band GAUPA from Falun, Sweden. 

To celebrate joining their roster, the band have also released a live version of ‘Mjölksyra’ as a single.

With surreal lyrics, an energetic, very unique singer, and an addictive sound that combines progressive stoner rock with doom, folk and psychedelic rock influences, GAUPA released their self-titled debut EP in June 2018 and have since made a name for themselves in the international underground rock scene. The GAUPA EP was well received and led to the band playing one of their first live performances at Scandinavia’s biggest rock festival, Sweden Rock. GAUPA thengot a chance to release the EP on vinyl via German label Kozmik Artifactz in October 2019 and went on to play a good number of shows and festivals. Critics were impressed not only by the studio recordings and their diverse and complex arrangements, but also by the level of intensity the band displayed live. 

In April 2020 GAUPA, which means “lynx” in Swedish, released their first full length album Feberdröm, gaining even more attention from both the underground scene as well as Nuclear Blast Records, who will release their next album in 2022.

Jens Prüter, Head Of A&R at Nuclear Blast Records Europe comments:
While most newcomer bands struggled during the Corona pandemic, GAUPA managed to grow in quality. Their unique sound hasn’t remained unnoticed and word of mouth spread fast. Once we had seen their live stream show and had some video conferences, we knew they would sit well in an artist roster that contains the likes of Graveyard, Opeth, Earthless and Meshuggah who appear to be some of their favourite bands, even if GAUPA isn’t very metal at all. But it’s that attitude to tear down boundaries between genres – just for the sake of art. We are proud to welcome them in good company.

GAUPA‘s vocalist Emma Näslund adds:
We’re all still nurturing dreams of working more with our music and playing larger shows. One could argue that it would be time to shake those dreams and grow up. We don’t. If you’re doing something you love, keep going! We are beyond humbled to find ourselves among the giants and we’re very happy to announce our signing with Nuclear Blast!

Senses Fail Announce ‘Let It Enfold You’ & ‘Still Searching’ Livestreams

Post-Hardcore quintet Senses Fail have announced the details of two upcoming livestream events where they’ll be performing ‘Still Searching’ and ‘Let It Enfold You’ in their entirety.

Both sets were recorded using a 360 degree tracking camera as well as steadicams at Joshua Tree, California with the set for the performance of ‘Still Searching’ set to air on July 29th 2021 whereas ‘Let It Enfold You’ will air a week later on August 5th 2021.

Frontman Buddy Nelson said the following on the sets.

“Joshua Tree is tied to many significant life changing events for me and the band. I heard the news of my first child, was a witness and first responder to a horrific accident, received news of a new president and experienced life altering connections with nature and family.

As a human I have done my best to survive and to ultimately flourish, I see the desert of Joshua Tree as a similar example of desolate space that thrives. My internal narrative can sometimes be desolate but I have always found a way to grow and persist despite harsh conditions. The desert has shown me that life is both beautiful and tragic and that both of them must exist in each other’s arms to feel the full spectrum of what the universe has to offer.

I can think of no better place to perform out two most popular and life changing records that deep in the heart go to the
