Alt-rock artist Dan Potter Sings is premiering a lyric video for ‘To the Beat of a Civil War’ on May 18th. This is a new track off the upcoming album ‘Again?!’ which will be released in the summer.
This hard hitting punk-pop song builds itself upon the rebellious themes that run alongside the recent explosion of right-wing activism and racial prejudice taking place in western democracies. Using sarcasm and irony as artistic tools, the storyboard lyrics skewer this point of view in imaginative and fun ways.
“My new track ‘To the Beat of a Civil War’ was written before the infamous January 6th Capital Riot, but this tragedy served as a great visual representation of the song. I decided to collect together a ‘greatest clips’ selection of this warped event to use as the backdrop in the lyric video and it became a perfect compliment to the pummeling guitar riffs and spiteful words.”
The video ‘To the Beat of a Civil War’ is the first glimpse at the brand new album Dan Potter Sings has been recording over the past year. This new album titled ‘Again?!’ will be released on June 11th 2021 and has ten previously unheard songs on it. I would appreciate the support for this lyric video release (video premiere, news share, streaming playlist add etc.) and I will share any press across social media.
Check out the video for ‘To The Beat Of A Civil War’ below.
Multi-award nominated East Coast rockers Arsenal Mills have dropped a new straightforward installment from their forthcoming EP, Lovesick & Broke; “Cry No More” is available now!
Vocalist and guitarist Brad Milligan says “Cry No More” first came together very spontaneously and naturally. “Griff brought this big, sing-along chorus to me that he’d been working on,” Milligan recalls of the band’s lead guitarist, Griffen Arsenault. “From there, and in only a short time, we had all the music and lyrics written out.”
The song has an infectious, driving beat reminiscent of classic 80s New Wave, and has already proven to inspire feet to move along to it. “I remember everyone in the studio at the time was dancing along to the song while we were recording,” Arsenault recalls. “We figured that was a good indication of how fun this song is!”
“As far as drums and percussion go, this was the first time we decided to mix live and sample drums in a song,” drummer Josh MacNeil explains. “I love how punchy and quick it is; it doesn’t mess around, and just gets straight to the point.
“I couldn’t be more excited about how it turned out.”
“This song has been in my head literally since the day I first heard it,” bass, keyboard, and synth player André Uyterlinde adds. “It definitely has that ‘earworm’ quality; the rhythm is fairly straightforward, but there are a few little cool twists.”
From their homebase in Charlottetown, PEI, Arsenal Mills have been featured in many well-known music publications including CBC, Tinnitist, Canadian Beats, Record World Magazine, Cashbox Canada, and more. The band have been nominated for both ‘New Artist Of The Year’ and ‘Rock Recording Of The Year’ by Music PEI.
Marble have released a new lyrics video for their track ’30 Silver Coins’.
The band say:
“30 Silver Coins’ is our third single taken from the album ‘S.A.V.E.’ The main subject is the theological virtue “Hope”. Here we tried to describe the reasons behind Judas Iscariot betrayal as a man, beside God’s or Devil’s will (as written in John’s Gospel). The 30 silver pieces of silver were paid to Judas by the Priests for selling Jesus to the soldiers.
The meanings behind the song are the fallen hopes of Judas, how all the words Jesus told were only lies and the vision of salvation is just a mere illusion. But Judas is still sad, and in the chorus he sings his sadness to the priests, describing the void left by the “Son of God”, without mentioning him directly. Musically we wrote up-tempo, with lots of double bass drum in the main riff and a thrash approach for the verses, while the choruses and the leads parts, maintain our trademark melodic style.”
While working on new material for their upcoming record, Evanescence’s Amy Lee has recently appeared on the Raise Your Horn’s Livestream in order to perform with Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale.
They remotely joined on the We Are Hear series for a haunting duet of Halestorm’ track ‘Break In’ off the record, ‘The Strange Case Of”.
In addition to their performance, the two musicians caught up with each other on the idea of being unapologetically themes.
“I encourage my female peers, whether they’re musicians or not, to not pay any mind to people who don’t like them, or even those who do,” Lzzy said. “Someone might love me and another person might absolutely hate my guts, which they both have the right to do, but all that matters is what I think of me. Somebody could make a list of everything they want you to be and say, and you could be and say all those things, but that person still wouldn’t be happy. So you might as well just be yourself, unapologetically.”
