Music Video’s 27/03/18

Hey everyone, apologies that this post is coming late at the moment. Things are crazy on my course and everything in between at the moment so I haven’t had the time to do this post but it’s here now. Let’s get the music posts going but first, if you’re new, the list is ten of the best recently released music video’s from around the world and it ranges from the Pop-Punk, Rock, Metal, Heavy genres so first up is I Don’t Know How But They Found Me. It’s the creation of Dallon Weekes and Ryan Seaman’s delight of a project and here is their latest video.


Now, this next video is from Best Ex. Formally known as Candy Hearts, the band changed their name but still going in that rocking direction for the music. Here is their latest video for Jellyfish.


Back in January, Modern Error were the ones to keep an eye on and with Blackout Poetry their first offering for music in 2018, it’s evident that this is true.


Next, this band are due to set off on a huge 22 date headline tour of the UK which is rumoured to end the cycle of their sixth record, ‘Safe In Sound’ and ahead of this trek, dropped a video for ‘I Would’. IT showcases achieved footage of the band’s time on the road since dropping their latest album.


The next band in question The Bunny The Bear released their latest record less than a year ago but now they’re working on the follow up at the moment. For now, though, we do have their lead single, ‘Let Go’. It’s also the first to feature their new vocalist, known only for now as The Bear replacing Joseph Garcia who stepped down from vocal duties last year.


Up And Comers from Birmingham, UK are Layover. They’ve just recently dropped a video for the track ‘Slumber’ of their soon to be released EP, ‘Your Laughter Never Leaves’.


Currently touring off his tenth studio record, Say10 and with an upcoming co-headline run of shows with Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson has now released a video for the track, ‘Tattooed In Reverse’.


Next, is Queens Of The Stone Age. They’re preparing for their biggest UK to date this summer at Finsbury Park but until then, they have released the video for ‘Head Like A Haunted House’. It’s taken from their seventh record, ‘Villains’ which was released last year.


Going to the metalcore genre for the penultimate video is the band Shields. They’re gearing up to drop their full-length record ‘Life In Exile’, next month and ahead of its release they’ve released a video for it’s second single, ‘Black Dog’.

They’ve dedicated the track and video to George Christie, the band’s guitarist who tragically took his own life earlier this year.


Now here we are at the last video. They only released their brand new EP ‘All The Things I Never Said’ a few weeks ago and now Pale Waves have dropped a brand new video for their stunning track, ‘Heavenly’.


And that’s it for another round of music videos. I am doing my best to keep up with these posts but life sometimes just gets in the way and you have to prioritise things in your life. I am going to continue this but the next music video post will be coming back to the usual Friday upload from next week!

Now this is one I’ve been waiting for, for a while. Eva Plays Dead has just debuted their brand new single, ‘Get Back’ which is off their upcoming EP, ‘The Fix’.

Best-Ex Announces Two UK Shows

We’re getting a little bit more from our favorite Americans this year as Best Ex (formally Candy Hearts) has announced not one but two shows for the UK!

People have been asking and asking when she’s coming back to the UK since her former named band Candy Hearts toured with New Found Glory in 2014. Since then this is what she has released.

But that’s not all. Best Ex has also released a new video from her latest EP, ‘Ice Cream Anti-Social’ EP via Alcopop Records.

Speaking to Upset Magazine on the track, Mariel said: “When I wrote ‘Lonely Life’ I had been struggling a really long time with the feeling that no matter what, no matter who I was with, no matter how many people loved me, I would really always feel sort of alone. The world is a dreadfully lonely place, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel that in my core every single morning when I wake up.

For the UK dates, here is where Best Ex is playing in November.


2nd – Banquet Records, Kingston

3rd – Four Quarters, London


They’re both Free entry shows but spaces are limited so you’ll have to grab tickets to these shows fast when they’re released!

And the video for ‘Lonely Life’ is available to view below.

Candy Hearts Change Name, Release New Track

It’s a new start for the band Candy Hearts, who have changed their name to Best Ex.

Vocalist Mariel Loveland told Billboard:

Candy Hearts has always been an extension of everything I am. I came up with the idea for the band when I was a teenager, and I think it was deeply empowering at the time to be able to be in a punk band, shout on stage, and still own the fact that I felt like such a shy, insecure girl. That was always my thing — I’m powerful despite my anxieties. I think over the past five years — after the amazing whirlwind my band has been through that I still can’t believe even happened — it really transformed from an extension of myself to an extension of my anxiety and not much else.

To me, Best Ex is taking everything that Candy Hearts is — everything that I am — and giving it a breakup makeover. Only I didn’t break up with a lying, good-for-nothing human being, I broke up with my lying, good-for-nothing anxiety. To me, this record is that light at the end of the tunnel I’ve been trying to find for the last two and a half years. Making it felt like falling and figuring out my wings actually hadn’t been clipped like I thought. I’m so happy to have this finally be out there and to have it stand, where it belongs, alongside all of our other songs, which I consider a deep part of who I am.


And not only that, they have released a new track,  ‘Girlfriend’ which can be viewed below.
