Music Video Roundup 09/08/19

It’s 4PM on a Friday! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. First up this week is Grammy Nominated Pop-Rocker Avril Lavigne. Recently she has debuted her latest single, ‘Head Above Water’. Warning: there are some Amy Lee red dress vibes going on here.

 

With the release of her seventh record, ‘Birth Of Violence’ coming up, Chelsea Wolfe has released a brand new video for the release of her latest single, ‘American Darkness’.

 

Stray From The Path are just on an upward trajectory right now, and with the release of their new track, ‘Fortune Teller’.

On the track, the band have shared: Describing the track, the band say “Musically, a heavily syncopated assault on the senses. Lyrically, a fired-up attack on the status quo. Written as an antidote to the boomer mentality, Fortune Teller is an anthem for building a better future – no matter how badly it’s been laid out by the past.”

 

Within the last few weeks, the British metalcore band TheCityIsOurs have released their debut record! ‘Low’ was released and the last cut before they dropped the entire record was called ‘If You Know, You Know’.

Mikey Page (Guitar/Vocals) shared:

“‘If You Know, You Know’ is a ray of positivity, in an otherwise dark album, born out of the frustration of living with your own demons. In a climate dominated by social media, we often seek validation from others around us, usually from people who are in no way qualified to do so, yet it can be extremely frustrating when we are overlooked or judged by others.

This track is about standing by what you believe in and doing what makes you happy – regardless of what anybody else has to say. Learning to love yourself can be a challenging concept, but it’s impossible to help others, without looking after yourself. We wanted to highlight that despite all the challenges featured throughout ‘Low’ there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.”

 

Heading straight across to Lincoln, we have the hardcore up and comers Reclaimer who’ve recently dropped a video for ‘Canvey’, the latest single to come from their recently released EP, ‘Grief, Enslaved’.

 

This isn’t just a British list from a certain point, don’t worry. Moving to Brighton for the next video, they were the Rockest Record on Daniel P. Carters Radio 1 Rock Show, it’s Gender Roles! Here’s ‘Hey With Two Why’s’.

 

Moving to America Now, Florida’s Happy Hour a few months back released their second EP, ‘Love Hurts’ but where’s the video?

Full of demonic seduction to destroy their victim, check out ‘Cigarettes’ below.

 

Moving across to California, Ceremony are the band at number eight this week. They’re gearing up for the release of their new record, ‘In The Spirit World Now’ in just two weeks and they have released their title track to tear the world apart.

‘In The Spirit World Now’, is set to be released on August 23rd 2019.

 

Penultimate video time! I had to include this video because Yonaka are one of the best UK bands coming up in the scene right now!

They’ve recently released a video for ‘Rockstar’, a track off their debut record, ‘Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow’.

 

And we’ve come to the finale! And I’ve made sure it’s a big one! Bullet For My Valentine has unveiled a brand new video for ‘Piece Of Me’. It’s off their 2018 record ‘Gravity’ which also features footage from the band’s recent tour which included huge shows at London’s Alexandra Palace and from Slam Dunk Festival 2019. Let’s dive in.

And that’s it for another week of music video roundup. Don’t forget to check back next week at 4PM sharp for another countdown of ten of the best recent music videos to feast your eyes upon. There’s also new posts every day on the Almost anything Media so be sure to check out anything that might catch your eye.

Ceremony Release New Track, ‘Presaging The End’

Punk Rocks currently going through a resurgence with both new and established bands reinventing themselves left right and centre but here’s the thing. You never outgrow punk.

Ceremony have released ‘Presaging The End’, which is their third track lifted from their upcoming xth record, ‘In The Spirit World Now’.

Ross Farrar (Frontman) has said:

“Change is a hard topic to unravel. In one version, people don’t like it much because it tampers with original design. But on the other hand, change is something that is a necessity and also absolutely inevitable, so it’s one of those things we have to embrace by default.”

Check out ‘Presaging The End’, below.
