Kissin Dynamite Release New Video For ‘Only The Dead’

After charting on #2 on the German album charts with their seventh studio album, Not The End Of The Road, in January, German rock sensations KISSIN’ DYNAMITE will finally embark to a German tour to celebrate their new album.

In conjunction with this announcement, the five-piece have released a new single taken from Not The End Of The Road, entitled “Only The Dead” – a smashing hymn luring with the addictive vocal textures of singer Hannes Braun accenting their high-voltage stadium rock sound. The song gets you in the perfect mood for big stages and chanting crowds! With “Only The Dead”, the band picks up where they left off at the #3 spot on the German Rock Radio Airplay Charts, achieved with their previous single “Not The End Of The Road”, which stayed in the top 10 for weeks.

KISSIN’ DYNAMITE on the single:
“‘Only The Dead can be free from sorrow’ is a sarcastic truth: No matter how much you care about your mental health, in the end we’re only humans and literally can´t beat off ANY shit that comes our way.
So the message to the people is quite simple: Don’t take everything so seriously all the time and don’t let it get too close to you. Just grin (like skeletons do) and you’ll feel better, no matter what is bothering you. Life is too short to be anxious and worried all the time. Start giving a shit!”

Valleyheart Share New Video For ‘Heal My Head’

Massachusetts trio VALLEYHEART, who craft dynamic, cinematic alternative rock earmarked by lyrical eloquence and sweet melodies, released their second album Heal My Head on the 3rd of June, 2022 via Tooth & Nail.

“It’s experimental, glitchy — industrial, almost,” says singer Kevin Klein, offering a keen insight into the track and its origin story. “We wanted to write a chorus that would be so stuck in your head, that it would almost feel like it was driving you mad. A lot of the production choices were made from this place of wanting the listener to feel like they were losing their mind — going mad. Hard panning, filtered vocals, unusual effects, dissonant harmonies, changing time signatures. Fun fact: canvas sheets were placed over the snare drum, and in between the hi-hats to create a muted, electronic-like feel to the drums on the first half of this track.”

As for the accompanying visual, Klein says, “The director, Mark Bloodworth (Made by Bloodworth) and I started brainstorming ideas to make a beautiful yet distorted/messed up performance visual experience. The video used a visual AI synthesis method called StyleGAN that morphs faces into each other and into various abstract people. He used our faces and some others. The aspect of ‘Heal My Head’ and identity fit this visual effect perfectly. Mark also used tons of other AI and morphing visual effects in there too. A lot of it was also done on VHS and DigiCam. It was really cool to utilize tons of different ideas, cameras, styles and location to make this. The goal of this video was to provide an insane overflow of input and for the human eye and mind.”

Taking us even further into the clip, he finishes, “We shot most of the video in the basement of the church of Mark’s dad, where we actually used to practice during the pandemic and wrote most of the Heal My Head record there. It felt very full circle to be back in that same room, The other locations were deep in the woods at midnight, the backyard at Mark’s parents, and a club.”

Death Blooms & Strange Bones Unite On New Single, ’25 Thousand Volts’

Both unique and exciting voices in the UK underground of alternative music (though threatening to tip into the mainstream), Liverpool metal act Death Blooms and Blackpool electro punk project Strange Bones have united on a new single ‘25 Thousand Volts’.

The track is a collision of heavy AF elements, drawing upon electronic and dance music as well as metal and rap, resulting in a powerfully artistic, glitched-up, growling party of a tune.

Bobby Wolfgang (Strange Bones) says “25 Thousand Volts is a pissed off Rottweiler snapping its jaws at 127BPM. A collision of two worlds, a nuclear mash of genre with an overtly threatening commentary yelled at you by two Northern English underdogs.’’ Paul Barrow (Death Blooms) adds “This is the soundtrack to the end of the world.”

Death Blooms released their debut album ‘Life Is Pain’ last year with 2021 also seeing them open up the landmark Download Pilot festival to uproarious response, get nominated for Best UK Breakthrough at the Heavy Music Awards, tour with Trash Boat and guest on daytime BBC Radio 1 with Paul’s “Guide to Metal”. This year, Death Blooms have been busy selling out headline dates up and down the country and also kicked up another stunner of a performance at Download Festival. 

Strange Bones’ debut album ‘England Screams’ was released last year too. It includes an incendiary feature from Bob Vylan and is a brutally bleak but viscerally real appraisal of the state of the nation. Strange Bones have appeared at the likes of Download UK and France, Live at Leeds, The Great Escape, and Reading And Leeds. Tour dates TBA but in the meantime, Bobby will be DJ-ing at “GREEBO” – Oli Sykes’ new clubnight at his Church venue on 9th July.

On Your Nerves Share New Single, ‘Deep End’

On Your Nerves are making pop-punk with a youthful energy and passionate delivery. Today, the band announces their debut album, Brace for the Best, set for release on August 5th through their new label home, Static Era Records. The first taste of the record comes in single “Deep End”, a bouncy track that centers around young love. The video for the song follows the band making their own laugh-worthy skit show spliced between live performance shots.

On the single, vocalist Caleb Andrykovitch states:

“Deep End is a love song through and through. I wrote it about the significant moments of a relationship. The whole song came together very naturally because of how many feelings and personal experiences I had to work with. The main idea of the song is that life is great having someone by your side.”

On Brace For The Best, the band set out to not only be their most expressive to be to also channel inspiration from every iteration of pop-punk. The album was recorded with Zac Eisenstein (Man Overboard) and Pete Zen at Landmine Studios who helped the band push their creative boundaries and really hone in on their sound.

Eisenstein comments:

“I worked with On Your Nerves because I literally heard them on Instagram and was like ‘wow these kids get it.’ I was so thrilled to find younger guys with talent and an open mind. They worked so hard before and during the recording. I couldn’t have had a better time working with them and Pete. And I couldn’t be more proud of what we have!”

Julian Rose Drops New Music Video For ‘How Deep’

Fresh off the release of his debut EP, Los Angeles-based artist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Julian Rose is back with the music video for the EP’s title track, “How Deep.”

Julian broke out last month with his 3-track debut EP, ‘How Deep,’ which he made with producer extraordinaire, Bret Epic Mazur. While many know Epic from his band Crazy Town, many don’t know that Bret is not only an artist himself but also a producer who has helped develop some of the biggest names in music (Black Eyed Peas, New Edition, BBD). Speaking about his working with Julian, Bret writes, “there is something timeless and iconic about Julian Rose, something just as bright and unique as any of the mega stars I have been involved with. The kids got it.


Constantly experimenting with new sounds and styles, Julian’s music defies genre boundaries. He challenges the expectation that an artist must remain in one singular genre, ruthlessly coloring outside of the lines with his dynamic musicality. 

Fairweather Release Deluge EP Out Now Via Equal Vision Records, Share Video For ‘No Safe Corners’

Post-rock band Fairweather have released their new EP, Deluge, through Equal Vision Records. Recorded at guitarist Ben Green’s Washington D.C. studio, Ivakota, and partially at vocalist Jay Littleton’s studio in Houston, Deluge is Fairweather’s first new music since their self-titled album in 2014.

The band has also shared a short film for the track “No Safe Corners.” The stunning black-and-white video was made in collaboration with visual artists Raul Zahir De Leon, Jonathan Howard, and Marissa Long to interpret the lyrics of the song. Sonically, the track revolves around a strange and dissonant guitar lead that leans on a sense of lingering with no real end. Thematically that is the panic of not feeling safe or able to find shelter or solace.

On the emotional story behind writing “No Safe Corners”, Tsouras explains:

“My mother died a year ago this week after battling dementia for over a decade.  In the beginning, she was constantly fighting. She would struggle to hold onto any part of herself that was familiar, while at the same time being confronted with something that was unfamiliar and terrifying. She thought if she could just try harder and pretend nothing was happening, then it would go away. But in her case, it wasn’t self preservation.  What she was really trying to hold onto was the weight she carried for the rest of us, and was afraid she couldn’t protect us anymore if this overcame her, or that we wouldn’t trust her if we found out she couldn’t keep up. She didn’t want to let go of our burdens she carried for us.

The lyrics are a conversation. They are what I imagine her to be saying to herself in those early days of the disease.  This is a time when she still had some sense of control and autonomy but could tell things were changing. It’s the idea that you know something is wrong, but you can’t tell what it is and you’re terrified you’ll be letting everyone down if they find out. Nothing is familiar. No safe corners.”

Orders for Deluge can be made via Equal Vision Records

Eades Release Music Video For ‘A Welcome Goodbye’

Leeds quintet Eades release the music video for ‘A Welcome Goodbye‘ – taken from acclaimed debut album ‘Delusion Spree‘ – out now via Heist or Hit.

Self-produced, and recorded live a la inspirations Parquet CourtsPixies and The Strokes’ early work, there is an energy alchemised by the confidence each individual member has in their craft. This is amplified by the psychic connection established by hours of practice, and the rough and tumble of auxiliary commitments as an indie-band in this day and age.

The Ever Living Release New Single, ‘De Emulate’

THE EVER LIVING share their unrelenting new track “De-Emulate,” accompanied by a retro-futuristic video. The band will also host a listening party for their new album ‘Artificial Devices’(set for release on the 15th of July 2022) via the virtual reality hangout app Bigscreen.

The app can be downloaded for free and is compatible with Oculus, Valve, Microsoft and Vive devices. 15 guests picked at random will be able to interact with band members Chris and Andrei before an advance preview of the new album a week before release. Fans can apply for the event by emailing contact@theeverliving.com

Speaking on their new single and accompanying video Chris Bevan Lee comments:  

“De-Emulate is all about how our emotions can feel inbuilt and pre-programmed which holds us back and prevents us from progressing. The video was inspired by the early 90s when music videos had a more experimental aesthetic.” Beven Lee jests adding: “Certainly not like the carbon copy studio shoots you see today. I always try to make sure the style suits the theme and mood of the track and the fragmented visuals both illustrate and represent our sound. One foot firmly in the past with the other in the future”
