Okay, this is a very strange one but it turns out the legendary pioneers, Napalm Death could appear at MTV Music Week in Plymouth England this year.
The Plymouth Herald started a poll to see if people would actually like to see the band play and now the response to the poll has been so overwhelming that their label, Century Media Record are entering talks with MTV so they can play.
Now that would be insane!
I’m going to keep everyone posted on this because I want to see this happen!
Now you know what it’s time for! And it’s actually on time two weeks in a row! Now that my workload has been cut by my finishing my radio show; The Rock Show, I have a little more time for planning and everything else in my life, including this post. Now let’s get down to business, ten recent music videos.
As Chvrches get ready for the release of their new record, ‘Love Is Dead, they have dropped a video for their track, ‘Miracle’.
Aussie metalcore group Northlane are gearing up for this year’s Slam Dunk Festival in good style as they have dropped a video for ‘Hearmachine’. It’s a track about the human condition and will act as the final single from their third record, ‘Mesmer’.
A few weeks ago, up and comers to the Pop Punk scene, Woes dropped their new EP, ‘Self Help’ and with this video it’s lead single ‘HLB2’ shows the band acting as judges in a talent show, casting their votes against auditions from acts across the fields of singers, dancers and more!
We’re going to the metalcore group August Burns Red for the next video, and this track in question is off their eighth record, ‘Phantom Anthem’. The video is something eerie which sees the band performing in a number of rooms within an abandoned and derelict home. You have to see it to believe it. You can video ‘King Of Sorrow’ below.
This is one of my favourite bands at the moment. Melodic and fun post-hardcore newcomers Sink The Ship seem to be everywhere on the scene at the moment have just dropped their new record, ‘Persevere’. They’ve recently dropped a video for the track, ‘Out Of Here’, which is just another hit for them.
I do like a little bit of everything on these posts and I’ve observed recently that I haven’t been doing so. This next video comes to legendary group Napalm Death. Their track ‘Standardization’ is taken from the band’s recently released rarities compilation record, ‘Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs’ which is made up of several lesser known cuts dating from 2004 to 2016. It’s one track which is typically fast-paced, relentless and best of all, critical of modern society.
Now, for the next video’s we’ll go to another legendary band in the Grunge genre. This is of course, Alice In Chains as they have debuted a new video to accompany their new track, ‘The One You Know’. This is their first fresh material since their 2013 record, ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ so let’s see what we’re working with.
Earlier this year, The Used has to reschedule their tour due to a family emergency. That tour is coming in August but before then, the band have dropped a highly cinematic video for their track, ‘The Nexus’. It’s off the band’s latest record, ‘The Canyon’ and is full of creepy costumes mixed with some startling visuals.
Next, is American Pop-Punkers turned folk duo; This Wild Life. Now the pair have been teasing new material for quite a while and have a new video for us! It’s taken off their upcoming release, ‘Petaluma’, which is released on June 22nd 2018. This is ‘Westside’.
Now the best for last. Jonathan David is ready for his solo debut record but before any of that happens, he has dropped a video which sees the vocalist being held captive and being tortured whilst in an insane asylum which acts as part of a story that is set alongside his previous releases in ‘Everyone’ and ‘What It Is’.
And that’s it for another week! Tune in to the new music video list next Friday to see if it is kept up for three consective weeks again. (I’ll try my best to do so).
