††† (Crosses) – the duo made up of Deftones’ Chino Moreno and producer/multi-instrumentalist Shaun Lopez have released “SENSATION”, the latest single from their forthcoming EP, “PERMANENT.RADIANT” set for release on December 9th via Warner Records.
“SENSATION” is bolstered by an eerie video, which finds the recurring protagonist, actress Thais Molon, waking up from a car crash and trying to find a ride in the desert. Paired with grainy footage of the group performing in a narrow, dark alley, the video effortlessly captures ††† (Crosses) signature tastefulness and mood.
Italian rockers 17 Crash‘s fourth studio album “Stamina” is now available.
For the album’s release day, the band is channeling the power of the Kobra Kai (Karate Kid) for their new music video for the full-length’s closing track “Strike First”.
The band continues to explain the song:
“We took the inspiration for this song from the Karate Kid/Kobra Kai – movie/pictures, series. Therefore, it’s necessary to be on guard, without, however, being defeatist or pessimistic. Be always prepared when things are going against you. Be brave and show no mercy to the ones with bad intentions towards you. Don’t let them smell your fear, let them smell the taste of your fist.”
Toronto-based singer, songwriter and producer sunsetto has shared his new single & video, “too fast.” Layering an indelible, haunting chorus over an acoustic hook, sunsetto explores the power of attraction with compelling lyrics like “probably should be cautious / but you make it hard to do.”
“‘Too Fast’ was inspired by the feeling of entering a new relationship and not wanting to take things slow because the vibe is so good,” sunsetto explains. “I wrote the song with no music, I was just hitting my chest on a voice memo and Lenno (producer) built the track around that.”
GWAR have dropped their latest video for ‘The Cutter’. IT’s one epic track which features Hailstorm’s Lzzy Hale.
In the video, Lzzy plays a big part in the piece and it’s pretty dman good!
Frontman Blothar had this to say:
“Lzzy Hale is wonderfully talented. Few realize she is also an undercover Scumdog who came to Earth with the rest of GWAR aeons ago under her true name Clitaurus Maximus of the Maximus clan. We are delighted to have her voice and image on this work of absolute genius.”
And Lzzy added this:
“I, Clitaurus Maximus The She Bull… hereby declare, THE CUTTER as myFIRST feature in a MOTHERFUCKING GWAR SONG! Thank you so much to these interplanetary warriors for the much-appreciated bloodletting, and for giving this lil’ beast the opportunity to rear her three ugly heads!”
Check out the video for ‘The Cutter’ but please be warned, it is extremely NSFW and not one for the squeamish.
Indie rock band The Happy Fits have released the music video to their single “Little One”.
“Little One” is a sweet ode to the band’s future children, inspired by English singer-songwriter Tom Rosenthal’s many songs dedicated to his daughter. It is ultimately a track that encourages one to feel everything they need to feel, to embrace vulnerability. While a bright future can be difficult to grasp, the track’s chorus finds comfort in the uncertainty. It fits right in with The Happy Fits’ goal of their live show, and their music’s messaging–the desire to offer each other support, and a place to belong.
In anticipation for their new record, ‘Stamina’, 17 Crash have released their new music video for ‘Higher’.
The opening album track “Higher” is a punch in the stomach. The band continues to explain the song:
“We wanted to start on fire, getting in your ears like a Tornado. Our comeback after two terrible years is finally here, so it must be fast, heavy, and loud. This song speaks about our need to reach our life goals, focusing on what we love to do and trying to leave all the negative things behind. It’s a primal scream, a jump to reach the highest top. We all know how hard is to reach the top and remain free.”
Indie-pop singer and songwriter Cade Hoppe is back with the music video for his latest single, “Faded Love.”
The concept for the video, which was self-directed by Cade, was inspired by one of his favorite lyrics from the song: “I’ll put ‘Hot Fuss’ vinyl on / We’ll scream the words to every song again.” The video sees Cade strolling around New York City, stopping in record stores. Just like how the song grapples with whether to pursue an old flame, the music video follows Cade on his journey to find a record from his past. Will he find it again or will it remain a remnant of the past?
Delaware metalcore band FOREIGN HANDS have shared their new single ‘Tearing Down Your Reality’, out today on SharpTone Records. Strewn with chaotic riffs and raw emotion, the track finds the band expertly blending mosh-fueled chords with infectious hooks.
On writing ‘Tearing Down Your Reality’ vocalist Tyler Norris stated:
“‘Tearing Down Your Reality’ was written and recorded at the same time as ‘Chlorine Tears,’ although it shows the more aggressive side of our band. Lyrically, the song is about people who exploit anyone and use any tactic to get what they want at the cost of being their genuine self. It’s the type of ignorance that comes with being materialistic, egoistic, etc. While some may never come to address that part of themselves, the music video shows how some do in an unsettling way.”
Helsinki based Progressive Melodic Metal band NUMENTO have dropped released a new single from their upcoming second album to be released at the end of the month.
On the background, the band say:
“The Vile Entity is the title track of Numento’s upcoming second album. The third single introduces the new intensive sound of the band comprehensively and gives an accurate overview of what is going to be expected from the album as a whole. The themes of the album and the title track are built on an enigma about the seed of evil, how does a human or other entity become evil — how are serial killers and other criminals born? The new single will dive right into this question since the antagonist of the story is one of the most famous and cunning serial murderers ever known, and who managed to hide his true face for a long time by appearing innocent to the people around him. The story of the single will be introduced with a visually interesting and thrilling music video.”
Just two weeks after dropping their acclaimed sixth full-length album, “Survival Of The Sickest”, death metal beasts BLOODBATH massively hail towards the annihilating spirit of old-school death metal with a new music video for thrillingly violent “Putrefying Corpse”. This vicious onslaught is driven by explosive death, thrash and black metal and features a roaring contribution by Barney Greenway (Napalm Death), proving the critically-acclaimed, cult-followed band has no limitations, leaving the scene in shreds.
With “Survival Of The Sickest” the legendary wicked force featuring current and former members of Paradise Lost, Opeth, Katatonia and Lik marks an evil comeback, presenting death metal at its ugly best: vicious, unrelenting and irrevocably sworn to the black!
Nick Holmes on “Putrefying Corpse”: “The process of human life with a soul and humility, to eventual death, as nothing but rotting meat for vermin.”
