New Music Video’s 19/12/17

Hello, I know this post is coming a little late (4 Days) but that’s because I was away in Newcastle and otherwise preoccupied at the weekend and away from a computer screen. Although, it’s here now so let’s get on with these next ten music videos.

 

Up first are up and comers from Scotland, Divide who have had to change their name recently but this video for ‘Last Words’ comes off their recently released EP, Embers.

Speaking on the track, ‘Last Words’, vocalist Nicole Mason said:  ‘Last Words’ was inspired by a book called ‘The Lovely Bones’. The idea was to write a song from from the prospective of someone who has had their life taken from them, that really sparked something in me. To give them a voice, to give people who are lost in life the message that it’s okay to feel that way but you need to keep fighting.

I loved making this music video. We had our good friend Kitsch Me Vintage (Stylist & Make Up) on-board. I wanted to show people that there is beauty even in the darkest parts of this world. It’s okay to be different.”

 

Next, with their newest record ‘Underworld’ out in less than a month, Tonight Alive have recently dropped a new track off the forthcoming record; Crack My Heart. On the meaning behind this one, Jenna has said: “The concept of cracking the heart is to allow the precious, vulnerable self to come through and be free. The painful, yet liberating experience involves the emotional and energetic decalcification of the hardened heart.

 

This next band has just recently released their new EP, ‘Sunday Brunch’ and Chapel have served their own spot of brunch in this video for Don’t You Love Me.

 

Let’s take things a little heavier for this next track. Sheffield rockers Rolo Tomassi have just dropped a video to accompany a track off their soon to be released fifth LP, ‘Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It’. They’re away supporting TheNumber 12 Looks Like You in America for the first time ever. But in the meantime, here’s their newest video for Balancing The Dark.

 

Next month, the Yorkshire rockers Marmozets will release their second record, ‘Knowing What You Know Now’ which will be the follow up to ‘The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets’, released in 2014. For now though, here’s their latest video for Major System Error.

 

More from British Rock, this time it’s Black Foxxes who have a very busy 2018 ahead of them. They’ve recently released details of a new record, headline tour and their video for the brilliant, Sæla.

 

South Coasters Acres just debuted a video for their new track, ‘Unwelcome’, which was shot and directed by Zak Punchin (Modern Error Vocalist). This is their first material since the band’s EP, In Sickness & Health which was released earlier this year.

 

Next up is Sci-Fi brilliance from Our Last Night. This is taken from their latest release ‘Selective Hearing’ which is out now.

 

Penultimate track time. This is from Legends of Pop-Punk; New Found Glory. This track celebrates their 20th anniversary of the band with the video compiling of archived footage from across their career.

 

And the last video of the day is a live video. It’s from the new live album, ‘One More Light Live’  and it’s nothing ut beautiful. Check out Sharp Edges Below.

 

And that’s it for another round of music videos. I’ll do my very best to have the next post on time this week but as a final message from Almost Anything Music, Happy Holidays!

Speak The Truth Even If Your Voice Shakes, the supergroup featuring members of Finch and Senses Fail, have released a new video for their track,  ‘Drowning On The Sidewalk Or Dying Inside’.
It celebrates all things Stranger Things and is full of easter eggs.

Now let’s go for a Danish group. This is Alcabean and the video for Bloody Pose.

 

Just because Linkin Park isn’t on the radar at this moment, doesn’t mean they’ve stopped giving fans music or videos. Below is a live video for Crawling.

 

And let’s continue with the live videos. Remember that huge show Don Broco did when they played Alexandria Palace? Well,  here what went down in the video for T-shirt song.

Let’s go for one more live video but make it a cover. Good Charlotte paid tribute to Lil Peep at his memorial service in covering Awful Things. May he rest in peace in a touching cover to the fallen star.

 

And lastly let’s go for a new track. On Monday Boston Manor dropped their new track, Drowned In Gold. Speaking about it, Henry Cox said: “’Drowned in Gold’ is about people being followers; people who never question anything & surround themselves with trivialities and mundanity.”

“I got a chance to talk to those guys, to Tyler, to Dan, who said really wonderful things about Chester, and they were similar to the things that our fans said all around the world about him.”

Linkin Park Releasing Live Record

Linkin Park are to release a live record titled; ‘One More Light: Live’

It was recorded during the One More Light World Tour which took place earlier this year.

On the release, the band have said:

“We dedicate this live album to our brother Chester who poured his heart and soul in to One More Light. After we finished recording, we joked with Chester that – since he had delivered so many stunning performances in the studio – he had set the bar extra high to produce that alchemy on stage each night. Not surprisingly, he welcomed the challenge.

The shows we played during the early summer of 2017 were extraordinary. Chester shared with us that he felt that this was the best tour we had ever done. The cameraderie and joy we experienced on stage reflected our deep connection with each other, with our fans and with our music.

Every night before walking out onto stage, we would huddle, get focused and share whatever last-second remarks popped into our heads. Chester always took it upon himself to turn the name of the city where we were playing into a first-rate run. This was our ritual. Best of all, it was a moment to express our gratitude that we were living our dream.

Chester never forgot to express his appreciation to our crew –  the men and women who travelled the world with us, making our dream into reality night after night. Without them, these shows would not have been possible.

Chester was uniquely passionate, uncommonly generous, sensitive, optimistic, funny and kind. With his voice he turned pain into catharsis, authenticity into art and passion into connection. His dedication to bringing these songs to life was triumphant. For those of you who attended this tour in person, we thank you. For those who could not, we hope this live album give you a glimpse into how magical these shows were for the six of us.

– Joe, Dave, Rob, Mike & Brad”
