More acts have been added to ALT+LDN, a brand new festival set to take place on Clapham Common later this year.
Chase Atlantic Wasgasm and Macca Wiles are set to play.
Chase Atlantic had the following to say on the announcement:
“LONDON WE’RE COMING 4 YOU. WHO’S READY TO RAGE?!?!
THE UK LOVE HAS ALWAYS BEEN INSANE; SO U ALREADY KNOW YA BOYS ARE EXCITED AS FUKK TO SHOW THE SAME LOVE BACK. Y’ALL WILL BE SOME OF THE VERY FIRST TO HEAR SLAPS FROM ‘BEAUTY IN DEATH’ – LIVE IN THE FLESH! LESSGOOO”
They join the already announced Architects, Machine Gun Kelly, Sleep Token, Playboi Carti, Mario Judah, Bob Vylan, Lil Yachty and loads more.
ALT+LDN Festival is set to take place on August 30th 2021.
Los Angeles-based and Australian-borntrio CHASE ATLANTIC, recently dropped their latest single “SLIDE” via Fearless Records and announced the long awaited forthcoming album “BEAUTY IN DEATH” dropping 5th March, 2021.
SLIDE’s music video was shot in LA featuring psychedelic imagery where the trio is surrounded by mountain scenes. The song speaks to the slide into a state of mental ambiguity guided by the groups signature vocal and unique saxophone cameo in this genre bending track showing promise of what is to come on the upcoming album.
“Slide delves into a metaphoric, yet very personal realm filled with chaos, danger and brutal honesty. Living such a fast-paced, reckless lifestyle is bound to come with negative consequences, but nonetheless with the right amount of daring confidence and the ability to bounce back no matter the circumstance; it will always be just that for Chase Atlantic- a lifestyle.” States Chase Atlantic.
Over the past year the trio – Mitchel Cave, Clinton Cave and Christian Anthony – has grown their sound mixing trap, RnB and psychedelic alternative, drawing influence from King Crimson, Tame Impala, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and more. BEAUTY IN DEATH is the culmination of this growth sonically and speaks to the strength they found during the darkness and hardships presented in 2020.
Stay tuned for more information on the upcoming album and what’s to come in 2021 for the band.
Happy October everyone!! Welcome back to the new music video roundup. We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos. They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!
First up this week are the Australian trio chase Atlantic with the release of ‘Molly’ which is about the euphoric highs and the crashing lows of love.
“There comes a time in nearly everyone’s life where they have to make the difficult decision of whether to hold on to a deteriorating relationship, or let it go, even though it’s the thing they love most. Love, whether it be for another person or a chemical compound, is constantly an uphill battle. At the end of the day it’s up to us to decide whether or not that battle is truly one worth fighting. That being said; in some situations you just have to simply cut your losses and walk away. I hope we can still be friends.” States Chase Atlantic.
Moving to the band Bad Nerves, the video was produced by the bands own Bobby Nerves which is a cut from the bands self titled debut record, which is set to be released on 20th November 2020 via Killing Moon Records.
“While I was living in London I met so many different characters whenever I left the house,” says Bobby. “It was quite apparent how many people were struggling. I guess you see that in every city, but I wondered if the people who seem to have everything could do more to help those with nothing? I would wonder how many homeless people could fit in Buckingham Palace? Are the doors even open?
“This track was really an observation of the disparity between the wealthy and the not so wealthy mixed with thoughts of escape and wanting to run away and see the world. London made me realise that I didn’t want to stay in one place for too long. The longer you stay somewhere, the more of a fishbowl it becomes… and there is definitely something fishy going on at Buckingham Palace.”
Next we have Void Inn. They’re a heavy hitting band formed in late 2010 over in Los Angeles, CA. Formed by members Jelena Vujanovic (vocals) and Sinisa Pejovic (guitar), who had at that time completed their studies at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Hollywood. The band’s sound is powered by fierce riffs (Ala Black Sabbath), odd meters, virtuoso guitar parts and a large range of unique vocal tones and a wide range of colors.
At the end of 2011 the band moved to Belgrade where they continue to work in addition to a large number of shows. In March 2019 the band had a huge privilege to share a stage with legendary Megadeth bass player David Ellefson in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The band is currently working on their second record “End this Game” which is due to be released in October ’20 but for now here is their amazing single and video in the form of ‘Stay Young’.
Now we head to the St. Louis for the Rap Rockers, Discrepancies with their latest cut in the form of “Crawling Back” which is off the bands record, ‘The Rise’, which is set to drop on October 23rd 2020.
Vocalist Antonio Metcalf says, “Crawling Back is extremely special to all of us for a few reasons. We all really dug deep to put this song together. Even our friend/producer Matthew Amelung, who is no longer with us, went the extra mile and layered his own vocals into this song and it really brings out the emotion.”
He adds, “This one is about being in love with someone so deeply while understanding you have to let them go. The fact that Matt was fighting and lost his battle with cancer during the process of creating this song/album, gives this song a whole new meaning for me personally. While creating our last album Matt became our unofficial 5th member and not so secret weapon. So, much like this song all we can do is be grateful for the time we had as we turn the page to the next chapter. We’ll hold on to the memories until we’re gone but the music will live forever.”
More heavy hitters now! This time it’s Bound In Video whom have recently shared a video for ‘Stigmata’, the latest track to be cut and lifted from their album ‘The Hand Of Violence’.
This is what the band had to say of the song.
“‘Stigmata’ is about taking a situation into your own hands on a person who has committed horrendous acts – the idea of vigilante justice flows through the song and represents not rolling over, or letting anyone else sort your own problems for you. Taking control of your own emotions and owning your own response to situations is so important to us, taking responsibility for your own actions.”
Now let’s switch this up a little with the up-and-coming pop-punk trio Who Saves The Hero? The band’s new track ‘Days’ is pretty astounding to say the least, shining a light in these difficult and different times.
This is what vocalist/guitarist Josh Frederick says on the track.
“‘Days’ embodies the daily struggles of being stuck in bad situation but no matter how many times you get knocked to the ground you pick yourself back up again.”
We’re going to a band currently hot on my radar next. They’re currently signed Rise Records where they released their new EP, ‘Silence’ recently and this is Bloodbath with the seizure inducing video for ‘Erase’.
On the release of the video, the band say:
“Collectively, this is our favourite song. We wanted the video to almost be a satire of some hyper-masculine behaviours. The song itself is a very expressive way of being bigger than someone in many different ways but feeling insecure still — regardless of these shallow ego buffs.”
Now, after a 5-year long hiatus, Maryland’s I, The Breather have returned with a new song called ‘Prey’, which is their first offering since their 2014 full-length, ‘Life Reaper’.
It’s worth noting, however, that the track and promo art has the name Breather against it, suggesting a potential name change, though this hasn’t been officially confirmed just yet.
As for the penultimate pick in the roundup this week, following the release of their record ‘Primeval’, Death Metallers Venom Prison have now shared a video for one track off that aforementioned record: ‘Slayer Of Holofernes’.
This is what the band says:
“‘Primeval’ is a collage of different releases that are interwoven with a reinterpretation of religious imagery and criticism. ‘Slayer of Holofernes’ follows that theme. The scene from the book of Judith, follows the protagonist’s character and actions as a challenge to the dominant patriarchal narrative within religious writings.
We wanted to create a connection between this powerful tale and the art that Eliran Kantor has created for ‘Primeval’ through the use of water, depicting Larissa [Stupar, vocals] in an ethereal way and through inflicting pain via various methods of water torture on the male character.”
And finally this week in the Music Video Roundup, we are ending with the quartet known as Greta Van Fleet. ‘My Way, Soon’, is the band’s first new offering of material in over a year.
Josh Kiszka (Vocals) comments on the track as well as its meaning.
“This song was inspired by what three years of touring did by opening so many doorways. This is my truth, how I feel about all of our travels, but I know it echoes the experiences and changes of perspectives for Jake, Sam, and Danny as well.”
And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.
