Petrol Girls have released another acerbic and insightful new track from forthcoming album ‘Baby’. “Lyrically, ‘Preachers’ is my way of kicking back at this preachy, saintly, holier-than-thou vibe you get sometimes in radical left communities,” says vocalist Ren Aldridge. “I get very frustrated by the lack of nuance sometimes, and the way people seem so much more interested in punishing individuals than building resilient communities of care. And I hate the way that women and marginalised genders are held to such a way higher standard than cis-men.
I’m absolutely not saying that we shouldn’t criticise each other or that we should let things like sexual violence slide. But I think we have a lot of questions to ask ourselves collectively in terms of how we deal with harm, conflict, and abuse, and differentiate between them. I’ve been learning so much about transformative justice, which is where abolitionist politics and activism against gender based violence really come together, and was very inspired by Adrienne Maree Brown’s book ‘We Will Not Cancel Us.’
I also just really needed to reject this pressure to always act and speak completely perfectly, which has had a severe impact on my mental health by putting me in a constant state of hyper-vigilance and piling up alongside other pressures to make me mentally collapse. For me, our new album is so much about recovering from that severe depressive episode, and a crucial part of that was saying fuck it, I will never do enough, I will always make mistakes, but as long as I am true to my values and reflective thats fucking fine.”
“We wanted to make sure the first track was one that showed this different musical direction, because as well as moving away from sanctimoniousness, politically and vocally, we also wanted to make the music more stripped back and fun,” Aldridge explains. This is one reason why cheekier tracks like the proudly pro-choice single ‘Baby, I Had An Abortion’ and the unceremoniously titled ‘Clowns’ – built around a guitar riff Aldridge describes as sounding “like the morning after Boomtown” – are front-loaded, easing you in gently before hitting you with tracks like ‘Fight For Our Lives’ (ft. Janey Starling of feminist organisation Level Up) and ‘Violent By Design’ which deal with the heavier topics of femicide and police brutality.
This International Women’s Day, Petrol Girls are releasing ‘Fight For Our Lives’ in honour of the global fight back against the systemic murder of women and marginalised genders. This Bandcamp-only release features Janey Starling on guest vocals, and is raising funds for Level Up – a feminist campaigning group co-directed by Janey – who are developing a trans-inclusive virtual femicide database.
As Janey has written, International Women’s Day gets coopted and watered down but its radical origins are in a garment worker’s strike in New York, and in recent years this idea of strike has developed beyond just wage labour, and erupted into the global women’s strike movement. ‘WE WANT TO LIVE’ is this year’s slogan from Women’s Strike UK, echoing the slogan VIVAS NOS QUEREMOS – NI UNA MENOS from Latin America, where the women’s strike movement began in order to fight back against relentless femicides and gender based violence, by withdrawing women’s labour – unwaged, waged, domestic, care work, etc. – because when we stop, the world stops with us!
Vocalist Ren Aldridge elaborates: “The feminist group I’m part of here in Austria is based on this principle, and this song was written because of the regular femicide demos that we’ve been running here in Graz since June 2020, to make sure not a single femicide in Austria goes unanswered. NEHMT IHR UNS EINE – ANTWORTEN WIR ALLE! The intro lyrics describe these demos. We have painted the deaths of so many women and even young girls onto bed sheets to carry through the streets. This IWD, we will spread out all of the bed-sheet banners that mark each murder since last IWD in the main square, to make visible the scale of this violence. Austria is one of the European countries with the highest rate of femicide for the size of its population. We now hold our demos once a month because we know that unless there is systemic change, there will continue to be femicides every month. Some of our demands are in the lyrics to this track. We need safe housing for all, unconditional universal basic income, more domestic violence shelters and specialist services. We need better sex and relationship education in schools and the same rolled out across every workplace. We need responsible media reporting – and since these demos began we have seen a tangible shift in the way femicide is reported in Austria!
I directly referenced Janey’s ‘Dignity for Dead Women’ Level Up campaign in the lyrics to this track. Through this campaign, she introduced media guidelines for reporting on femicide and fatal domestic abuse in the UK – this is HUGE – because media narratives that place blame on the victims of femicide and abuse and treat these murders as isolated incidents are part of the problem. Level Up are relentless, and they GET SHIT DONE.Check out their current campaigns. We are giving all money raised with this track towards them building an interactive, virtual database of femicide victims across the UK and Chile, with a view to scaling up globally in the future. The database is trans inclusive, and will serve as a source of public knowledge and campaigning tool in the fight against gender-based systemic violence.
Last Friday (4th March) marked one year since serving police officer Wayne Couzens abducted, raped and murdered Sarah Everard. We were at the studio as the details of this unspeakable attack emerged during Couzen’s trial in Autumn 2021. We address police violence specifically in another track on the forthcoming album, but anger at the systemic failings and abuses of power that enabled him, and so many other violent men, poured into this track. Three women a week are killed in the UK, and global statistics suggest that a woman is killed every 10 minutes, and I doubt those statistics are trans-inclusive. We were very deliberate in mentioning trans people in the lyrics to this track because there are parts of the femicide movement that are trans-exclusionary, despite trans women being statistically far more likely than cis women to experience violence. Gender based murders of other marginalised genders are also wildly under researched.
YOU DON’T OWN US! Despite the media focussing much more on stranger attacks, the majority of femicides are committed by a current or ex partner – it is about ownership, power and control. A sense of ownership over a partner is something that is encouraged in a lot of pop culture, especially music. This track attacks that idea because it is at the heart of so much gender-based violence.
This release follows our previous single ‘Baby, I Had An Abortion’ and I think it’s worth pointing out that criminalising or denying people abortion can also lead to femicide. Women can and do die from being denied the abortion they need.
Femicide is the most vicious peak of the patriarchal violence and often intersects with other forms of oppression. This International Women’s Day let’s strengthen our fight against these systems. Let’s build collective power. Let’s remember our radical history and look to the incredible feminist movements growing across the world. In the words of the Kurdish revolutionaries – JIN JIYAN AZADI! WOMEN! LIFE! FREEDOM!”

PETROL GIRLS TOUR DATES: 14 March Le Pub Newport 15 March The Junction Plymouth 16 March Redrum Stafford 17 March 1 in 12 Club Bradford 18 March Green Door Store Brighton 19 March The 100 Club London Punks Against Sweatshops
Petrol Girls have dropped a brand new track, ‘Baby, I Had An Abortion’.
The track is “A party-banger about having an abortion and not being sorry about it,” as vocalist Ren Aldridge herself states. “This song is a response to my experience of having had an abortion in 2018 and my encounters with pro-lifers since then. I’m totally happy to speak openly about my abortion and feel very privileged to have accessed it easily and for free on the NHS in the UK. This should be the case everywhere but abortion is illegal, expensive and / or hard to access in many places around the world. I found out I was pregnant the morning after the eighth amendment was repealed in Ireland, so felt very aware of how lucky I was to be in a country where I could do it easily.
When I moved to Austria I was shocked to find out that it costs around €500 to have an abortion even if you have health insurance. That’s almost two months rent for me! One morning, my partner and I encountered pro-lifers marching in front of the abortion clinic on the main street. I saw red, and before I knew it was circling them screaming “I HAD AN ABORTION AND I’M NOT SORRY!” to the amusement of onlooking shoppers. I joined local counter protests and continued shouting “I had an abortion, and I’m not sorry” in German. But I started thinking about this interaction and how limited it was, even if it was cathartic. I didn’t want to dignify them with a serious reaction – I wanted to ridicule them. I’ve not seen much of the pro-lifers since the pandemic but I’m thinking about dance routines and street theatre to go along with the pro-abortion flyers we handed out to passers by.
The idea for the song came directly from these experiences, and is first and foremost intended for upsetting pro-lifers on demonstrations. The ‘Shame Shame Shame’ lyric is totally a Game of Thrones reference, and the whole idea is intended to ridicule pro-lifers’ attempts to shame us for exercising our bodily autonomy. I wanted the song to have party vibes because I feel like abortion, whilst it obviously can be traumatic and upsetting, can also be totally fine and something to celebrate. I wanted to put something joyful about abortion out into the world.”
Petrol Girls will be raising money for Abortion Without Borders with this release. They’re a network of organisations that fund and support people in Poland to access abortion in neighbouring countries or at home with pills. Abortion laws were further tightened in Poland last year making it only legal in extremely limited circumstances. “The work done by Abortion Without Borders is incredible and they’ve been a lifeline for so many,” says Ren.
Check out ‘Baby, I Had An Abortion’ below.
Petrol girls will tour the UK next month including the Punks Against Sweatshops event at the 100 club on 19th March 2022.
Below are the touring dates for March 2022.

Hello everyone welcome back to the New Music Roundup! We’re here for a roundup of five of the best recently released tracks. 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!
First up this week are Audio Karate whom have reissued their sophomore record, ‘Lady Melody,’ on vinyl for the first time ever! Remastered by JasonLivermore (The Blasting Room), the limited pressing of 500—100 copies in classic black vinyl, 150 copies in tricolor splatter, and 250 in coke-bottle green— features reworked artwork and original handwritten lyrics.
‘Lady Melody’ has earned a cult following amongst musicians since its release in June 2004. A Day to Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon has called it one of the best records ever. It was recorded and mixed in two weeks in December 2003 at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado by Jason Livermore and Bill Stevenson (Descendents/All), with Stevenson often touting its single “Jesus Is Alive & Well (And Living in Mexico)” as possibly being his favorite thing he’s ever recorded.
The band says, “Thank you for all the years of continued support, hope this video reminds you of simpler times…not a single cell phone in hand by anyone in the audience. Imagine that.”
Not quite early 00s pop-punk or post-hardcore, ‘Lady Melody’ largely slipped under the radar upon its release. However, the same raw technical originality that separated it from the pack led to its cultish popularity. It remains a start to finish fan-favorite 16 years later, transcending nostalgia with a sound that feels as urgent and fresh in 2020 as it did in 2004.
“It’s the worst album cover really, but it’s bizarro, and the record is kind of bizarro, and we’re definitely bizarro,” says Audio Karate guitarist Jason Camacho. “We self-funded our first release 20 years ago in my mom’s living room, and we’re still DIY. We’ve merely upgraded to Justo’s garage. We’re just beyond happy that we’re able to release this for our friends and fans who’ve been asking for it for a long time. Thank you all! Now please leave us alone!”
Seconds up now are RLND (pronounced Roland), a four-piece rock band from San Francisco, CA. They have at turns been referred to as “Kinda like Tool” “Too loud” and “The most ferocious underground metal band around,” although the latter came when the bassist had a broken foot– take that as you will.
They’re debuting a new single and wild new video for “Public Chefs” off their upcoming album ‘ZEALAND,‘ a concept album that the band explains is “built around our collective narrative as a capitalist society.”
“‘Public Chefs’ is kind of the odd track out on the record musically and (director) Tsunami said he had an idea for a video for the song,” RLND guitarist Joe McClune tells No Echo. “He ran with the thematic idea behind the song, which is basically the wholesale distraction of the population at large with smoke and mirrors.
Moving onto the South Coast now we have the newcomers Snake Eyes with their release in the form of‘Bugged Out’, the closing track from their recently released ‘Skeletons’ EP.
Vocalist and guitarist Jim Heffy had this to say of the track.
“This was an idea I’d had for many years and that had many different forms. There were other guitar parts, as it was originally written for two guitars, but when I decided snake eyes should be a one-guitar band, I changed up the track. I was having a really bad time with insomnia and when I did sleep I would have weird nightmares and that’s kinda what the song’s about. Scary stuff, I know.”
You can stream and watch the video for ‘Bugged Out’ below.
Anyone for a London band now? We have the fantastic Petrol Girls for you now.
The track, ‘I Believe Them’ has been released to raise funds for Solidarity Not Silence legal fees which you can find out about here.
“We’re releasing this track to raise as much money as we possibly can for Solidarity Not Silence and to widen the network of people supporting the cause,” says vocalist Ren Aldridge. “Solidarity Not Silence is the legal defence fund for a group of women, including myself, who are being sued for defamation by a man in the music industry because of comments that we each made separately regarding his behaviour towards women. We’ve been fighting this case since December 2016 and desperately need help raising money for our legal costs. The only reason we’ve been able to successfully fight this case as long as we have is because we were able to come together and fundraise for our legal defence. Help us keep our legal representation all the way to court and win this!!!
“As one of the Solidarity Not Silence defendants, I’m limited in what I can say about the case whilst it’s ongoing. However, there’s nothing to stop me contributing to a wider conversation about sexual violence and the law – which is what this track, ‘I Believe Them (Solidarity Not Silence)’ is about.
“‘How are we meant to protect ourselves?’ I find myself internally screaming this question, which is the chorus lyric, on a pretty regular basis. On the one hand, the criminal justice system consistently fails and often further traumatises survivors of sexual violence who decide to report to the police. This system clearly does not protect the majority of survivors and I personally do not believe it holds any answers in dealing with gender based violence. Then on the other hand, when survivors and their allies try to protect one another by speaking out about abusive behaviour, they become vulnerable to libel/ defamation law. And in both criminal and libel cases, the burden of truth is placed on the survivor. Literally what does the law expect us to do?
“There is, in practice, no legal aid available for the defence of a defamation case, which creates a dynamic whereby it is relatively easy for someone with money to silence those without. Money should not be a barrier to accessing justice and we refuse to allow our case to set a precedent for silencing marginalised voices in the music community and beyond. Please donate to / share our crowdfunder: http://www.crowdjustice.com/case/solidaritynotsilence.”
Now let’s change things up a little right now and we have a belter of a track in the form of the Avant-garde metal trio Imperial Triumphant with ‘Excelsior’, a track from the band’s fourth album, ‘Alphaville’.
Bassist Steve Blanco (who also directed the video) had this to say of it.
“Many people flock to the big city with golden dreams in their eyes willing to do whatever it takes to succeed, like the ones they see at the top. It is the seal of approval; The medieval crest upon which the very fabric of humanity’s elevation prevails. The failure and losing streak is a deceptive reality that slowly finds its way as diminishing returns, caught up in the illusory system. Ever upwards.”
You can check out the video for ‘Excelsior’ below.
As the penultimate song on Chapter I Revisited, “Demons” arises as another emotional and intense performance by AD INFINITUM’s multifaceted vocalist Melissa Bonny, accompanied by harmonic instrumentals while presenting the anthemic character in the chorus. Light as a feather, Melissa gently whispers moments of the lyrics before setting the stage for the second single’s grand finale, taken from the new acoustic album, Chapter I Revisited, to be released digitally this Friday, December 4 via Napalm Records!
AD INFINITUM on “Demons”: “Look what the advent calendar offers you today! We are happy and proud to share the music video and single “Demons” before we can finally introduce you to Chapter I Revisited”
Heading into something a little more disruptive now as we move on in this weeks Music Video Roundup are the Deathcore monsters Distant for ‘Dawn Of Corruption’, the title-track from the band’s recently released EP.
The track also features a guest vocal spot from Jason Evans, frontman of Ingested.
You can check out the video for ‘Dawn Of Corruption’ below.
The band’s ‘Dawn Of Corruption’ EP is out now via Unique Leader Records.
Keeping with the Heavy metal genre or something along that lines still for our next video, we give you the quartet Firstborne with the visuals to accompany their brand new single, ‘Sacred Lights’.
For those unaware, the band’s line-up is composed of drummer Chris Adler (ex-Lamb Of God), bassist James LoMenzo (ex-Megadeth), guitarist Myrone, and vocalist Girish Pradhan.
Check out ‘Sacred Lights’ and its video below.
Who wants some throbbing bass, harsh feedback and a good snarling attitude to everything for the penultimate video this week? Well, that’s what Saint Agnes give you on their latest video for ‘This World Ain’t Big Enough’.
Vocalist Kitty A Austen had this to say about the track:
“This World Ain’t Big Enough’ is a song about toxic love: that person that you can’t live with or without. Jon and I chose to lockdown together so that we could keep working, and that proximity resulted in a song about two things: being unable to exist in the same space at the same time… but also unable to exist anywhere else.”
And the dark video?
“We got together on Halloween night to film a video at a closed emporium and antiquities warehouse. We’ve missed being a weird little family on tour so much that when we could finally all get together, we made a series of strange family portraits to commemorate the occasion.”
After the surprise tease at the start of last week, YUNGBLUD and Machine Gun Kelly have dropped their latest collaboration.
With drums provided by Travis Barker and an infectious guitar lick thrown in for good measure, it’s a proper dancefloor filler with Dom and Colson bouncing off each other brilliantly in what is the latest track the three have collaborated on together. They might as well just make a supergroup right now because the material they could potentially make would just be amazing. Oh well, I guess we can only dream when we think of this.
Check out the final video for this weeks Music Video Roundup below.
And that’s it for another week of a roundup of the best new tracks out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos. If you have any suggestions for me to check out, be sure to send an email or message us via the socials on Facebook or Twitter!
Petrol Girls have announced a headlining run of shows in support of their new record, ‘Cut & Stitch’, which was released earlier this year.
“There will be a limited amount of £5,- cheap tickets during the first two weeks of pre-sale which are explicitly aimed at folks that simply can’t afford to pay more to get into a show, but still want to come out and have a good time.”
Here are the dates.
14th – London Tufnell Park Dome – Loud Women Festival
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.
Up first this week are the fantastic Beartooth. They’ve just recently released the official video for ‘Afterfall’ and they’re out to prove that aliens do exist in this video.
Up next are Fresh from their performances over on the main stage of Slam Dunk festival and they’ve got some help from Trophy Eyes frontman John Floreani. Check out Boston Manor’s latest video for ‘Liquid’ below.
Moving up to Scotland for our next video, Woes have done some globetrotting in their latest video for ‘Fancy’.
On the track, frontman DJ has said:
“’Fancy’ is a song about when you’re first getting to know someone and you’re into them, but you have to do a bit of work to convince them to take a chance on you… It’s a fun, upbeat song about a feeling everyone can understand, It’s one of the most fun, accessible songs on the record, but there’s a TONNE of musicality going on underneath, there are some great riffs, there’s an insane bass line hiding in the first verse, some big fills. But everything contributes to making an upbeat song that you could jump around to at a festival, I love it”
Keeping up with another Scottish band, we go to the trio The LaFontaines have the release of their third record, ‘Junior’ very soon but now for the moment, we have their latest single ‘Alpha’.
Frontman Kerr Okan has said on the track :
“‘Alpha’ comes as a result of the losses we’ve had recently in this area from young males, predominately of the ‘Alpha’ stereotype. I’ve often struggled with my emotions – anything other than aggression was always seen as a weakness and something that should be locked away. ‘Alpha’ marks the point in my own journey where I realised that there was something real to be gained from embracing the spectrum of emotions – whether you’re male or not.”
Back in January, the British newcomers Burdened released their debut track ’33’ and now they finally have a follow-up! It’s called doubt and you can check it out right below.
Heading to Manchester for some more newcomers to the scene, Grief has gotten some fans off the back of their debut track, ‘Dorman’ which was released back in March but now, there’s more to come from this band.
The post-hardcore group have recently released an accompanying video for ‘Burial’ which at the time of writing, is not confirmed to be a stand-alone track or will feature on a future EP or Record.
Check out ‘Burial’ below.
Keeping things Post-Hardcore for the next choice on the roundup are Petrol Girls and their latest cut from their recently released second record, ‘Cut & Stitch’.
Vocalist Ren Aldridge has said: “I struggled to put lyrics to this track for a really long time. But following a week of spectacularly shit mental health in the studio, I made it into a motivational sonic kick up the arse and back into action. I personally find a lot of the discourse around mental health a bit claustrophobic and babying, and that contributes to me feeling worse. Independence, activity and purposefulness are what I need to keep my shit together. I wrote this song for myself – if it’s useful for other people that’s cool, but everyone’s different, and I really want to underline that.”
Bristol is the next destination for the next video. This is of course, Phoxjaw. They’ve recently signed over with Hassle Records and have an EP, ‘A Playground For Sad Adults’ out next month to!
For their first cut off the EP, is the second track, ‘Melt, You’re A Face Of Wax’ which you can check out below.
Let’s go across to Texas for the penultimate choice on thsi weeks music video roundup! Everyone cool with that? Awesome. Also as a change up in genre to Pop-Rock is Bruce Avery or rather his alias The Rocket Summer as he’s shared the latest released off his seventh full length record, ‘Sweet Shivers’ in the form of ‘Shatter Us’.
Check it out below.
This week, I’ve reserved possibly the best band I’ve heard in 2018. This is from the Vietnamese heavy hitters Windrunner as they have a massive video which is a double video to accompany the opening track from their debut full-length record, ‘Mai’ and those tracks? It’s ‘Mulan’ and ‘Oleander’
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.
It’s 4PM and it’s 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 is up and coming artist Kim Jennet who has a video for her new single, ‘Unbroken’ which comes off her upcoming yet to be announced solo record.
Up next are the Pennsylvanian metal band Motionless In White. They have a haunting new video for ‘Disguise’, which is the title track of their upcoming full-length fifth record. Warning! It isn’t for the faint-hearted.
Shifting to the Punk and Electro project BAIT, there’s a video which has recently been released for the track, ‘DLP’.
“BAIT isn’t just music, it’s ventilation, it’s expression through art. We all have a voice and this one speaks from the guy in broken English. I record my own music, I edit my own videos, I design my own covers and I work with people I love and respect… because I have to and because I want to.’
Shifting the focus to metalcore, Polar have some satanic force for ‘Devil’, a new cut from their latest record, ‘Nova’. The track is about the liars and cheats the plague our lives”, sees a seemingly invisible character walking the streets and bringing out the worst in the people that he passes. Let’s have a look.
London based Punks Petrol Girls have a teaser for their upcoming record, ‘Cut & Stitch’. The track and video are both in collaboration with the Solidarity Not Silence organisation. Ren Aldridge (vocals) has said:
“Thematically, ‘Big Mouth’ follows on from our previous single, ‘The Sound’. But it focuses in on voice as a physical sound that comes directly from our bodies, and also more generally as self-expression. There’s a lot of politics around who is heard and what that means, and many marginalised groups are only tolerated when they’re quiet. When they refuse this containment and control, they’re met with attempts to silence them. Just one example of this is the defamation case which aims to silence the Solidarity Not Silence girls – a group of women who each separately spoke out against the behaviour of a man in the music industry. Whilst the case is ongoing, we are limited in what we can say about it, but encourage everyone to spread the word and donate to the crowdfunding campaign for their legal costs. They are determined to not allow their case to set a precedent for silencing marginalised voices in the music industry and beyond. There’s no legal aid for this kind of case – they need money to pay for their legal representation in order to pursue justice. You can get a Solidarity Not Silence t-shirt, as worn by Joe in the ‘Big Mouth’ music video.”
Next, I have to write about this one. It’s been everywhere. Yes, it’s the Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie collaboration, ‘ME!’. I had to post this one, come on, don’t hold it against me.
Rumours circulated ahead of the release with Brendon sharing: “Wait. This really happened?! Like for real?!?! Well I can’t begin to describe how incredible it has been to work on this song and video. So I will simply say: Thank you Taylor Swift for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful story. So much fuckin love and respect.”
Check out the video below.
Now, it’s been three years since Angels & Airwaves released their first piece of new music, and that was their 2016 EP, ‘Chasing Shadows’! Now, that is a long while! Their new single ‘Rebel Girl’ is out now and it’s off their upcoming full-length record. On the track, Tom DeLonge has said:
“’Rebel Girl’ is a space-age love song that combines my enduring obsession for New Wave, pop punk and anthemic rock and roll music… As some of you might’ve heard, I recently took a brief minute to start up an aerospace company, so you never know – I may play this song from a satellite deep in space, beamed toward everyone’s house viciously on repeat.”
Blessthefall has some live performance which are turning out to being legendary apparently, but they’re just stepping up everything as a band if this new video for ‘Welcome Home’ is anything to go by, we know everyone loves a good taste of the Pheonix metalcore group!
New Years Day are well and truly back! They’ve recently dropped their new video for ‘Shut Up’, which has some similarities to American Psycho, because of course! I mean, it’s New Years Day. Would we expect anything less from them?
Speaking on the video, Ash Costello has said:
“When we recorded the song ‘Shut Up’ I knew right then and there, on that day, straight away, what I wanted to do if we were ever to make a music video for it. It came to me immediately. So when the time came and ‘Shut Up’ was chosen for a music video, I was thrilled because it meant that I’d get to make my vision come to life, which was to recreate one of my favourite horror movies of all time, ‘American Psycho’”.
I had to save this for last. The well-dressed German masters Rammstein are legendary, aren’t they? Everything seems turned to eleven when they release something, as if it’s a huge day because of that release. And that’s just what this video is for our last pick of the music video roundup.
Check out ‘Radio’ below.
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.
Four Piece Harcore Feminist group Petrol Girls have announced they’ve signed to UK Independent label Hassle Records and are currently working on new music. They’ve also announced they’re off to tour the UK in April as well as having been added to this year’s Reading & Leeds Festivals.
