This year marks the 10th year anniversary for a lot of records but the record, ‘This War Is Ours’ from Escape The Fate was the first to feature Craig Mabbitt in place of their original frontman, Ronnie Radke.
The band has confirmed some dates already but they’ve now announced they’re coming over to the UK to play some of these shows as well.
Hey everyone, Apologies for not putting out a new post of music videos last week, I’ve been at some job interviews in the last week so time has gotten away from me.
But now, here’s another edition of the Music Video Posts. First up are Glassjaw who have dropped a video for their track, ‘My Conscience Weighs A Ton.’
Next up are Fangclub, a personal favourite band of mine. After the release of ‘True Love’ in June, they have dropped a video for ‘High’ with some amazing visual effects.
Now, coming off with a personal message of a period of We are in a period of instability, adversity, and change… but also it’s a time for hope and possibility… As Espace The Fate put it, there is the video for I Am Human.
Now, with some Airplay and some videos under their belt, Somerset group Pretty Little Enemy have a new single and a new video in the form of ‘Never Say Goodbye.’
Moving to TheCityIsOurs, this video is centred around the theme of loss and death, in their video for ‘Veins’.
Ever wanted to see what touring life is like for a band who wear Wolves on their heads? Well that’s what the point of this video is in Man With A Mission’s video for ‘Hey Now’.
I’ve been waiting to hear something from this group for a while. Now, this is building up a release from their new record, ‘Mental Knife’ but post-hardcore’s Hail The Sun is a bit arty and more or less sticks to the stop-motion technique in their video for ‘The Stranger In Our Pictures’.
Now let’s go to Canada. Melodic hardcore fave’s Counterparts will be releasing a new EP called ‘Private Room’ and they’ve just dropped the video for ‘Selfishly I Sink’. It’s a B-Side from ‘You’re Not You Anymore’ but now I’m generally excited to see more unreleased music see the light of day.
And the penultimate video. something politically charged? Check. Confronting historical injustice? Check. That’s exact;y what The Fever 333 tackle in their video for Made An America. On the video, Jason Butler has said: This video was an attempt to offer representation to gravely underrepresented, and ironically prevalent, faction in both music and society. This is an acknowledgment of those whose bodies were exploited in the name of power. The beautiful bodies and souls that have been taken from time and time again to serve the interests of someone else with no regard for their own existence or advancement.
And lastly, last week Bring Me The Horizon dropped the first song off their new era. Now I’m not saying we should be starting or joining any cults but Oli Skyes and co do want me to follow their music more closely. Check out the video for their single, Mantra below.
And that’s it for another week of the best recent music videos. Be sure to check back next week for another round of the ten of the best.
