New Music Roundup 03/07/20

First things first, I do apologise that there was no new music or music video post last friday! Since lockdown has lifted the restrictions on shops in the UK, it meant that I was back at work and because a few team members from my shop couldn’t come back yet, I stepped up and took on their hours to help out my store.

And now, We’re back for a roundup of five of the best recently released tracks and sometimes a little information that comes with them! 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 (videos)!

First up this week are the 2020 anthemic kings known as Angels & Airwaves who’ve got a new single titled as ‘All That’s Left Is Love’, which comes off their upcoming TBC sixth record.

Tom DeLonge had the follow to say on the record.

“We never appreciate the connection we have with others until it’s gone, and although we may not be able to change this first part of this story, we can for sure change the ending.”

Check out ‘All That’s Left Is Love’ below.

Up next, we have the Like Pacific. The track, ‘Hands Tied’ have an unreleased B-side from their 2016 record, ‘Distant Like You Asked’ for everyone to enjoy. The track also features Comeback Kids ‘Andrew Neufeld lending vocals for the track.

“This song was crazy when we recorded it. It was wild to have Andrew Neufeld on a track. I must have listened to ‘Wake The Dead’ and ‘Broadcasting…’ all through high school. I’m glad it’s seeing the light of day. I was probably the angriest I was when recording ‘Distant Like You Asked’. After the death of my grandmother and a manipulative ex, it definitely was an abrasive one.”

Time for something a little more tifftastic now. Their debut record, ‘Internal Incarceration’ is set to drop in a few months times but until then we have the phenomenal ‘Manipulation Artist’.

‘Manipulation Artist’ is a swirling mass of razor wire riffs and bludgeoning breakdowns that the band say is about “questioning your own sanity while you are trapped in a cycle of abuse from a manipulative, toxic partner. One day of happiness overshadows the pain until it starts all over again.”

Moving into heavy territory we have the Hamilton based Counterparts. The band released their latest record, ‘Nothing LEft To Love’ last year and now, there’s some brand new B-Sides from the record which didn’t make the cut.

The two tracks are called ‘Purer Form Of Pain’ and ‘Strings Of Separation’ so I’m going to flip a coin for which to post this week. The winner? ‘Strings Of Separation.

Brendan Murphy (Vocals) explains:

“One person’s trash is another person’s treasure… so here’s two more b-sides I guess? We wrote these songs when we were in the process of recording ‘Nothing Left To Love’ and for whatever reason, they just didn’t fit the vibe of the album so we decided to cut ’em. Since you guys seemed pretty stoked on the ‘Private Room’ EP, we figured why not just throw these up? At the very least, it’ll occupy like 5-10 minutes of your time… and who knows when the five of us will even be able to cross the border to be in the same room and record more music? You might love them, you might think they stink, either way it’s all good by me. They’re b-sides! Who gives a shit?”

And now time for some British heavyweights. Whilst being all alone in isolation, Bring Me The Horizon didn’t sit around. They’ve been writing and recording where the first track of those sessions, ‘Parasite Eve’ got unleashed into the world last week.

Originally intended to be released June 10th 2020, it was postponed due to the Black Lives Matter movement and protets, where they state they “don’t feel comfortable released and promoting anything that takes the focus off what’s important right now.”

Frontman Oli Sykes had the following to say on the track.

“‘Parasite Eve’ came from an idea to write a survival horror song, but as the pandemic started to develop, the parallels were so similar it felt so close to the bone we decided to shelve it. As time went on, we started to feel how relevant it was and that instead of shying from it, that we should address the dark side, embrace it and process what’s going on… ‘Parasite Eve’ is our message of hope, wrapped in sadness and anger.”

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.

Music Video’s 26/07/18

The list is back. For those who are new to the blog, every Friday I post a weekly list of ten music videos. I scower the world of rock for the next best video and now I’m back blogging for all you wonderful people, the top ten list is back. So let’s get on with things and first up is Trash Boat. This is taken from their upcoming record, ‘Crown Shyness’ which is due to drop on July 13th.

Next I turn my attention to Waterparks with the video for ‘We Need To Talk’. It’s off their most recent record, ‘Entertainment’, which was released via Equal Vision Records.

 

Hopeless Records have signed a new band recently, called Lotus Eater and the Scottish Metalers already have released a new video. Check out ‘Break It’ below.

 

And a little more Popier sound as of now. Fall Out Boy have dropped the video for ‘Bishops’s Knife Track, only two weeks after Pete Wentz tased a to-do list via Twitter.

 

Where’s Like Pacific been? Making a goofy video of course! But now, the Canadian Punks are ready to show you the new video for ‘Self Defeated’.

 

Going to everyone’s favourite Emo rapper in the form of Nothing, Nowhere and front his third full-length record, ‘Ruiner’ you can check out ‘Rejecter’ below.

 

Following the departure of Douglas Robinson last year, it was easy for any band to call it a day. But, that wasn’t the case for Night Verses. One Year on, they’ve released a new record and here is ‘Vice Wave’.

 

Now, Sweedish rockers Normandie are entering a new era for the band as they’re gearing up to release a new track but for now, we have the infectious track ‘Ecstasy’ for you to view below.

 

Now another band who are setting off on a new era are Set It Off. They’ve been away for quite a while now, and the plans have come into fruition. They’re releasing a new record but there is no release date as of yet. On the other hand, we have their new track, ‘Killer In The Mirror’ to keep us preoccupied.

 

And for the last new band for the list, who else is there to put on than Twenty One Pilots? They’ve recently announced their new album, ‘Trench’ and what else can they announce other than a tour? How about a music video for the track, ‘Nico And The Niners’? Check it out below.

And that’s it for another week here on the weekly music video list. Be sure to check back next week for another list of the best music videos released in the last week.
