Indie rock band The Happy Fits have released the music video to their single “Little One”.
“Little One” is a sweet ode to the band’s future children, inspired by English singer-songwriter Tom Rosenthal’s many songs dedicated to his daughter. It is ultimately a track that encourages one to feel everything they need to feel, to embrace vulnerability. While a bright future can be difficult to grasp, the track’s chorus finds comfort in the uncertainty. It fits right in with The Happy Fits’ goal of their live show, and their music’s messaging–the desire to offer each other support, and a place to belong.
In anticipation for their new record, ‘Stamina’, 17 Crash have released their new music video for ‘Higher’.
The opening album track “Higher” is a punch in the stomach. The band continues to explain the song:
“We wanted to start on fire, getting in your ears like a Tornado. Our comeback after two terrible years is finally here, so it must be fast, heavy, and loud. This song speaks about our need to reach our life goals, focusing on what we love to do and trying to leave all the negative things behind. It’s a primal scream, a jump to reach the highest top. We all know how hard is to reach the top and remain free.”
Delaware metalcore band FOREIGN HANDS have shared their new single ‘Tearing Down Your Reality’, out today on SharpTone Records. Strewn with chaotic riffs and raw emotion, the track finds the band expertly blending mosh-fueled chords with infectious hooks.
On writing ‘Tearing Down Your Reality’ vocalist Tyler Norris stated:
“‘Tearing Down Your Reality’ was written and recorded at the same time as ‘Chlorine Tears,’ although it shows the more aggressive side of our band. Lyrically, the song is about people who exploit anyone and use any tactic to get what they want at the cost of being their genuine self. It’s the type of ignorance that comes with being materialistic, egoistic, etc. While some may never come to address that part of themselves, the music video shows how some do in an unsettling way.”

Awake is the new track from Powerful Systm, taken of the bands upcoming EP, ‘Endless Transformation’, set to be released on 28th October 2022.
The sound inspires a deeper connection with one’s true identity and elevates consciousness from the material experience into a higher dimension. Powerful Systm’s music draws inspiration from the likes of Pink Floyd, Nightwish, Davin Townsend, and Blind Guardian.
Helsinki based Progressive Melodic Metal band NUMENTO have dropped released a new single from their upcoming second album to be released at the end of the month.
On the background, the band say:
“The Vile Entity is the title track of Numento’s upcoming second album. The third single introduces the new intensive sound of the band comprehensively and gives an accurate overview of what is going to be expected from the album as a whole. The themes of the album and the title track are built on an enigma about the seed of evil, how does a human or other entity become evil — how are serial killers and other criminals born? The new single will dive right into this question since the antagonist of the story is one of the most famous and cunning serial murderers ever known, and who managed to hide his true face for a long time by appearing innocent to the people around him. The story of the single will be introduced with a visually interesting and thrilling music video.”
Dutch composer, producer, vocalist and gifted songwriter CHARLOTTE WESSELS has released her new and fourth single, “Venus Rising”, from her stunning full-length, Tales From Six Feet Under Vol II.
CHARLOTTE WESSELS on “Venus Rising”: “Venus Rising was inspired by Botticelli’s painting The Birth Of Venus. Even though she was modeled after the ideals of her time, I take comfort from the fact that she never had to cover up or uncover, be louder or more soft spoken, grow bigger or smaller, but just rises from the waves and comes into power unaffected by expectations, regulations and injustices that reign in the real world. We recorded the video for the song last week, and I couldn’t stop thinking about the brave women of Iran, and how they’re fighting for their most basic human rights at this very moment. It is heartbreaking and in my mind the song is dedicated to them. #MahsaAmini”
Just two weeks after dropping their acclaimed sixth full-length album, “Survival Of The Sickest”, death metal beasts BLOODBATH massively hail towards the annihilating spirit of old-school death metal with a new music video for thrillingly violent “Putrefying Corpse”. This vicious onslaught is driven by explosive death, thrash and black metal and features a roaring contribution by Barney Greenway (Napalm Death), proving the critically-acclaimed, cult-followed band has no limitations, leaving the scene in shreds.
With “Survival Of The Sickest” the legendary wicked force featuring current and former members of Paradise Lost, Opeth, Katatonia and Lik marks an evil comeback, presenting death metal at its ugly best: vicious, unrelenting and irrevocably sworn to the black!
Nick Holmes on “Putrefying Corpse”: “The process of human life with a soul and humility, to eventual death, as nothing but rotting meat for vermin.”
Check out the video for ‘Putrefying Corpse’ below.
Montreal-based alt-pop singer-songwriter, Emi Jeen, is entering a new era with “Everything, Something, Nothing,” the first single from her transformative second EP, Why So Serious, co-written with Evan Blair.
This track is an attitude-filled, vocal-forward track which captures a feeling of abandon, reflecting on how strange it is to be so close to someone and then suddenly become strangers. It channels the 90s with energetic drums and hooky guitars which explode into the song’s chorus.
Check out the video for ‘Everything, Something, Nothing’ below.
They the latest signees to Marshall Records and haven’t even turned 18 yet, which is pretty darn amazing.
But it’s because they have some incredible songs inside them, including this debut single.
It’s called ‘Teenage Tragedy’ and perfectly embodies all of the weirdness, uncertainty and unbridled infatuation that comes with learning about love as a teenager. From heart flutters to heartbreak, all set against a frantic punk backdrop, it’s an amazing and incredible relatable statement from a band with a bright future ahead of them.
Vocalist Noah Lonergen had this to say about it:
“I wrote Teenage Tragedy during a point in my life where I was riddled with self doubt and heavily relied on my girlfriend at the time for my own happiness. It wasn’t a healthy mindset at all but the love we felt for each other felt almost all consuming to the point where I thought it was normal.”
“This song is about the uncertainty and frantic nature of teenage relationships, the way insecurities always seem to get in between my brain and trusting that something is good. It’s also the story of every mid-teen house party and the one couple that your mates thought would last, but it just wasn’t meant to be. But it’s mainly about getting drunk on a night out.“
And this to say about being picked up by Marshall Records:
“We’re so excited to share this first single via Marshall Records. Having such a respected, world-renowned company fighting our corner is an amazing opportunity for a gang of teenagers. We can’t wait for the journey ahead!”
