Music Video Roundup 22/04/19

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. First up are Breather, an up and coming British group with a powerful track in the form of, ‘The Blue’.

The second entry is another fantastic video. It features footage taken from his recent tour in support of his debut solo record, ‘Post Traumatic’ and the clips are from the New York and Montreal shows of Mike Shinoda’s tour, check out I.O.U. below.

 

It’s safe to say State Champs newest record, ‘Living Proof’ was one of Pop-Punks best records in 2018 and one of their best tracks off the record, ‘Criminal’ has a music video! The basic plot? It’s about a desperate search for an iPod. Trust me.

Recently, the fantastic Welsh up and comers Holding Absence finally released their long-awaited debut record but just before, they dropped a new video which introduces some colour into their monochrome aesthetic they’re known for.

Vocalist Lucas Woodland had the following to say about the song and their previous singles.

“We’re so proud and excited to show everybody ‘Monochrome’, the song shows our band sonically and visually in a new light and opens a lot of doors for us. We feel like this track, alongside the prior 3 singles released are a great insight as to what our album has to offer and what fans can expect.”

Another band who’s just released some new material are the British melodic hardcore newcomers Modern Error. Their last cut before the release of their debut EP, ‘Lost In The Noise’ is called ‘Self Synthetic’ which keeps up their blue aesthetic.

Time to get a little cinematic. It’s from those wolf masked crazies in Man With A Mission and this video packs a punch. Literally.

Moving into 2019, The Xcerts are going into it off a stellar 2018 for the band who’ve just kept that momentum going from every single track off their latest record.  With a new EP on the horizon for the band, 2019 will be a make or break year for them. With that in mind, they have a new video for ‘You Mean Everything’ and on this video, vocalist Murray Macleod has said:

“We are really psyched to share with you the video for ‘You Mean Everything’. It was put together by our close friend Thomas Brooker who has spent the past year and a half with us on the road during the entire ‘Hold On To Your Heart’ campaign. I guess it’s kind of a romantic rock and roll, family home video, we hope you dig it as much as we do.”

Moving on with this list, we’re going across the pond to the Boston based hardcore band, Defeater. They’re gearing up for the release of their fifth record, but recently dropped a stream of the lead single, ‘Mothers’ Son’. It features plenty of footage working on the record in the studio and is quite a visual spectacle.

 

Following the announcement of their EP, ‘Ensom’ and the reaction to their debut single off it, Parting Gift have another surprise for us which just intensifies just what we’re gearing up for with this band.

 

And we have a huge, dark and intense last video for everyone. It’s Underoath and they have a video for a track off their 2018 record, ‘Erase Me’. Aaron Gillespie has said: “Spencer [Chamberlain] and I were chained to a pole for three hours with a stranger, who was the actress. Making this video was a really interesting process, because the song deals with a lot of deep issues and struggles. But it was so late when we were filming that we were just hysterical. The video seems so serious due to the lyrical content, but it was a night.”

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 15/03/18

It’s Friday at 4PM! 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. Up first is the Massachusetts Metalcore faves, Unearth. This track, ‘No Reprisal’ is the latest track from their seventh studio record, ‘Extinction(s)’ which features a compilation of footage from their recent shows.

 

We’ll go across the pond for the next band and we’ll switch up the genre as well. Hardcore newcomers Modern Error debut EP was released a few weeks ago and they had one track to put to video to celebrate the release which vocalist Zak Pinchin spoke about.

‘Self Synthetic’ is about a false sense of self breading down barriers and taking over your whole reality, and you’re just struggling to keep your true self alive.”

Check out the video below.

 

We’re going all over the world for this weeks video roundup. Just imagine how many miles it would take to travel to all of them! Next up we have Punk Rockers from Toronto, Ontario. This can only be Pup who’ve gotten 250 fans involved via covers and interpretations for their video for an unreleased track, ‘Free At Last’.

 

Right, after their massive Brixton Academy show in December 2018, Deaf Havana announced they were actually recording the show for a live DVD! It actually dropped today but here is a taste of what there when in a live video for ‘Hell’.

 

Time for something from a more recent record. The metalcore monsters Attila self-released their latest album, ‘Villain’ and they had to show what they do to celebrate, they made the video for the title track to show how hard they party.

 

Moving back to some British bands, the up and coming Metalcore group Sworn Amongst have recently announced they’re the latest signee’s to LA label, Famined Records. They did have a surprise on top of this announcement in the form of their new track ‘Believe’.

 

This next track and video come fresh from tech metal foursome Ursus. Speaking on this, vocalist Joe Grimes has said: “The concept and title Totem’ refers to a place where bodies would be stored before the ground became soft enough to dig, because of very cold temperatures; this was referred to as a “Totem house”. The lyrical content of the song is based around the story of a person being buried alive whilst their loved ones mourn, unaware they’re still alive and going through the most horrific and slow death.”

 

Moving across to Belgium, we have Brutus. This is the second track from their soon to be released record, ‘Nest’. Speaking about this particular track the band have said: [The track is about] doubts. You just try so hard to just keep going and doing the best you can. But in fact, sometimes you only get shit in return. People don’t always backup the choices you’re making. The aggression in the high guitar notes resemble the irritation we felt towards everyone who was not driving along with us. In the second, compelling part we are asking them to give us time, so we can process what they’re saying.”

 

Penultimately today we’re going to Denver of all places. The Anchor’s upcoming record is a follow-up to their 2016 debut, ‘A World Ahead’ but until then, we have the latest cut from the record, ‘Revive’.

 

Time for the last video and indeed I wanted to actually save my favourite and in my opinion the best track for last! This is Energetic, Weird and Different. Three words I’d use to describe Scottish aces Vukovi. The twosomes legions of fans hopefully won’t have to wait too long to hear when their upcoming record will be released but they’ve got plenty of chances to see them perform when they support Set It Off and on their huge headlining UK tour. for now though, here’s the latest taste of just what the band can do in the form of ‘C.L.A.U.D.I.A’.

 

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’s 27/03/18

Hey everyone, apologies that this post is coming late at the moment. Things are crazy on my course and everything in between at the moment so I haven’t had the time to do this post but it’s here now. Let’s get the music posts going but first, if you’re new, the list is ten of the best recently released music video’s from around the world and it ranges from the Pop-Punk, Rock, Metal, Heavy genres so first up is I Don’t Know How But They Found Me. It’s the creation of Dallon Weekes and Ryan Seaman’s delight of a project and here is their latest video.

 

Now, this next video is from Best Ex. Formally known as Candy Hearts, the band changed their name but still going in that rocking direction for the music. Here is their latest video for Jellyfish.

 

Back in January, Modern Error were the ones to keep an eye on and with Blackout Poetry their first offering for music in 2018, it’s evident that this is true.

 

Next, this band are due to set off on a huge 22 date headline tour of the UK which is rumoured to end the cycle of their sixth record, ‘Safe In Sound’ and ahead of this trek, dropped a video for ‘I Would’. IT showcases achieved footage of the band’s time on the road since dropping their latest album.

 

The next band in question The Bunny The Bear released their latest record less than a year ago but now they’re working on the follow up at the moment. For now, though, we do have their lead single, ‘Let Go’. It’s also the first to feature their new vocalist, known only for now as The Bear replacing Joseph Garcia who stepped down from vocal duties last year.

 

Up And Comers from Birmingham, UK are Layover. They’ve just recently dropped a video for the track ‘Slumber’ of their soon to be released EP, ‘Your Laughter Never Leaves’.

 

Currently touring off his tenth studio record, Say10 and with an upcoming co-headline run of shows with Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson has now released a video for the track, ‘Tattooed In Reverse’.

 

Next, is Queens Of The Stone Age. They’re preparing for their biggest UK to date this summer at Finsbury Park but until then, they have released the video for ‘Head Like A Haunted House’. It’s taken from their seventh record, ‘Villains’ which was released last year.

 

Going to the metalcore genre for the penultimate video is the band Shields. They’re gearing up to drop their full-length record ‘Life In Exile’, next month and ahead of its release they’ve released a video for it’s second single, ‘Black Dog’.

They’ve dedicated the track and video to George Christie, the band’s guitarist who tragically took his own life earlier this year.

 

Now here we are at the last video. They only released their brand new EP ‘All The Things I Never Said’ a few weeks ago and now Pale Waves have dropped a brand new video for their stunning track, ‘Heavenly’.

 

And that’s it for another round of music videos. I am doing my best to keep up with these posts but life sometimes just gets in the way and you have to prioritise things in your life. I am going to continue this but the next music video post will be coming back to the usual Friday upload from next week!
