Is it Friday already? That can only mean it’s 4PM! This 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 span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. First up are the British collective known as Itoldyouiwouldeatyou as they debut a video for ‘Almost Zero’ which is apparently inspired by a short story written by senior Putin advisor Vladislav Surkov.
Next up, hailing from Findlay, Ohio are the ever fantastic September Stories who’ve been teasing music over the past few months and now they have something to put to all that teasing. Check out The Calm, The Storm below.
Next is a band whose name is a little questionable but we’ll go with it. They’re called High Reeper. The five-man band plays stoner-rock but sometimes these bands can be highly addictive. It’s fun and infectious and you can check out the video for ‘Bring The Dead’ below.
Moving onto some legends in the scene, AFI released a brand new EP in 2018, titled as ‘The Missing Man’. On that, was some of their best material they’ve produced and now, the band have recently released a video for ‘Get Dark’, which is reminiscent of a David Lynch film.
Now, the next video is from a mans name you could be familiar with. It’s none other than ‘Mat Kerekes, better known as the frontman of Citizen. He’s got a solo release, ‘Ruby’ out soon and now, he has a video to show us all for the track, ‘Diamonds’.
Moving over to British Columbia now, this is a band who’s been tipped to watch and they are the metal trio, Spiritbox. Their latest EP came in 2017 and this is their latest offering since said EP and that is the track, Belcarra. Check out the video below.
Shall we go animated for the next video? Our Last Night have recently announced their new record, ‘Let Light Overcome’ which is set to be released on March 8th. But until then, we have a great new video for ‘Demons’ which you can check out below.
The latest signing from Manchester is a band called Parting Gift. They’ve just recently signed with Fearless Records and bringing out a brand new EP, ‘Ensom’ which will be released at the end of March. On the track, ‘Pale’, frontman Zac Vernon has said: “Pale is the emptiness one cannot escape. It returns when the mind is idle. It seeks no endgame. It lives and breathes pain & it is the opposite of love. In Pale, the sacred grounds appear for the first time.”
With Holding Absence just about to head out to tour all over the place, you need to get hyped for it right? Well, they have a fantastic video for the powerful track, ‘You Are Everything’ and it just shows how great a show of theirs can be.
And we’ve come to the last track of this week’s Music Video countdown. Stand Atlantic released their latest record, ‘Skinny Dipping’ last year and it was one of the records of the year for me. On that record, they had plenty of anthems, bangers but one stood out from the rest as it was a real emotional track. That track is ‘Toothpick’ which just shows how great they are as a band.
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.
