Free Throw Release New Single, ‘Ocular Pat Down’

Free Throw are teasing their upcoming record with the new single, ‘Ocular Pat Down’.

Recorded with Will Yip, their fourth full-length ‘Piecing It Together’ is set for release on 25th June via Triple Crown Records. It’s already been preceded by a video for lead single ‘Cloud Sick’, and ‘Down & Out’ too.

“Ocular Pat Down is a song about people who can’t seem to put others before themselves, but will always be the first to get on a fake pedestal,” says drummer Kevin Garcia, “Throughout the last year, we saw so many venues, bars, etc that have felt like second homes to us on the road and at home, suffer immensely because of the pandemic. First to close, last to open, last to get the support. We wanted to highlight some of these places in the Ocular Pat Down video and bring some attention to a few killer venues that are still very much hurting or have had to close their doors for good.”

Music Video Roundup 05/04/19

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. The first track is a cover from New Found Glory, and the track? ‘This Is Me’ from The Greatest Showman ut the video?? Erm… we’ll let you decide on it.

 

Now, following on the news of their debut record, ‘Fragments’, Sister Shotgun have had their lead single released and a brand new video produced by Mockingbird Studios. Vocalist Chloe Ozwell on the track has said:

“The song takes me back to a place where I was really vulnerable, but it’s about reclaiming my power. I hope it can serve as a reminder to keep pushing no matter what life throws at you.”

 

Moving to some Pop-Punk goodness for the next track, we have some Aussie newcomers on UNFD in the form of Yours Truly and this track is off their upcoming EP, ‘Afterglow’ set to be released on April 12th.

 

We’re going to switch things up again and go for some Post-Metal mayhem from Pleiades which will be the first cut from their upcoming EP and the follow up to their 2016 debut, ‘Symptoms Of The Human Being’.

Vocalist Andy Calderbank has said:

“‘All At Your Mercy’ is lyrically about control and the catharsis we feel when we finally give it up. As Humans, we welcome consequence, reluctantly accept responsibility and approach the future with caution. I guess you could describe it as Agnosiophobia or the fear of not knowing what will happen.”

 

And shifting the focus to some Emo Rockers, we’ll be having some Free Throw in this weeks list. They’ve recently released ‘Today Is Especially Delicious’ from their record ‘What’s Past is Prologue’ and there’s one thing which it does have a lot of. Fruit.

 

Next, Ahead of their tour across Europe, Japanese metalcore group Crystal Lake have given fans a taste of their music in the form of ‘Hail To The Fire’ which is just the latest track to off ‘Helix’ which saw an official release outside of their home country just last month.

 

Shall we try a different country for the next video? Ukrainian hitters Jinjer have a visual spectacle for us all in their live performance for ‘Teacher, Teacher’. This is the fourth single off their EP, ‘Micro’ and on the track, the band have said:

 

Moving back to Britain to the Alt Rock scene are the newcomers in Ruled By Raptors who were born from the ashes of Digits and the South East Northumberland band have some energy to give in the form of their track, ‘Time’.

 

For the penultimate video this week, I’ve chosen to go with Grandson. Recently the socially conscious artist has recently announced he’s playing a warm-up show for Slam Dunk Festival on May 22nd at London’s Underworld and May 23rd at The Glasgow Cathouse. Now though, he’s recently released a video for ‘Apologize’ which is the lead single off his most recent EP, ‘a modern tragedy, vol.2’.

 

And for the final post, we’re going for controversy, we’re going for industrial kings which can only point to one giant band, Rammstein. The German superstars recently announcing their long-awaited self-titled record which is set to be released on May 17th via UME / Spinefarm. With the announcement came with the music video which has caused controversy among Jewish leaders in Germany with eh commissioner of anti-Semitism in Germany saying: “I consider this a tasteless exploitation of artistic freedom,”

 

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.

Music Video Roundup 15/02/19

Is it Friday already? That can only mean it’s 4PM and it’s time for one thing. It’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or the roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I view some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re videos that go across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. Let’s get things going with the Hardcore Yorkshire band Blood Youth where ‘Spineless’ is about not being able to change your fucked up state of mind,” according to frontman Kaya Tarsus. Check it out below.

 

Lock & Key have returned to the spotlight after some teasing online last week and ‘Changes’ sees their first glimpse of new music since the band parted ways in 2016.

 

In the last week, The Faim haven’t seen any signs of slowing down. They’ve been on a huge UK tour, their first headlining UK tour to be exact as part of their world tour and now, they have a new Video to their Huge track, ‘Fire’. The concept behind the video, according to vocalist Josh Raven is about how dedicating yourself to achieve your dream can affect your relationships with those closest to you.

 

Moving to the Ska Punk and Punk favourites Zebrahead have gotten themselves involved with Aliens in their latest video for the track ‘We’re Not Alright’. The video sees a cloaked alien abduct and steal the brain of a human in the forest. And of course, there’s a pug.

 

Skunk Anansie have been around for the last 25 years. And to mark such an accomplishment, you have to look into the history of a band. As such, that’s exactly what this band has done perfectly for ‘Hedonism’ 25Live@5.

 

We’ve been waiting for Ocean Grove to reveal themselves for a while, and now we have some changes in the camp. Former Bassist Dale Tanner has taken over vocal duties from Luke Holmes, who left the group last month and Twiggy Hunter has stepped in on Bass.

Now, their new track, ‘Ask For The Anthem’ shows us what to expect in the future.

 

Pretty Vicious are making a strong start to make themselves known in the world. The Welsh group recently signed to Big Machine and they’re their debut record with Dan Austin on producing duties. At the moment, they’re showing just what they’re capable of in the form of their new video for “These Four Walls”.

 

For the next selection, I’ll venture into the world of alt-pop for Billie Eilish. The 17-year-old is making waves in the music world and will be releasing her debut record soon. She dropped her lead single recently, titled as “Bury a Friend” which has racked up over 30 million views on Youtube to date. I’m intrigued to hear the full record but for now, check out the video for ‘Bury a Friend’ below.

 

With Tennessee Emo / Pop Punks Free Throw just wrapping up a tour of the UK, everyone’s been wondering what’s next for the group. The answer, of course, would be their next record, titled as ‘What’s Past Is Prologue’, set to drop on March 29th via Triple Crown. For the first look at what’s to come through, is the video for ‘The Corner’s Dilemma’ which you can view below.

 

And we’ve come to the last track of this week’s Music Video countdown. I’ve reserved this sometimes for a personal favourite or one track I’ve been waiting to see for a while. Either way, you know my last choice is going to be a good one. Set It Off recently released their fourth studio record, titled as ‘Midnight’ but they did something unorthodox for their newest music video, namely, let the fans vote which they were going to make. And with that, the last video has been chosen by the fans for their new single, it’s ‘Dancing With The Devil, which sees the band confined in quarantine. That’s all I’m revealing for it. You have to watch it, to see how good it is.

And that’s it for another week of music video roundups. Be sure to check back next week for another ten of the best right here at Almost Anything Media.
