Press To MECO have debuted a brand new single, ‘A Test Of Our Resolve’, the latest and last from their upcoming album ‘Transmute’ ahead of its release in a few weeks.
Drummer Lewis Williams says on the track:
“‘A Test Of Our Resolve’ questions the human race’s ability to solve some of the problems it will face. With an ever-growing population and technology advancing quicker than we can adapt, it ponders our future and how we might not create the idealistic world we dream of. Instead, for better or worse, it might be the artificial things we create, that outlast us and carry our legacy on. Also, there’s a parallel theme of us as a band feeling worn out and jaded towards the music industry and pursuing a career as a band, and not knowing if we have the energy to keep living such an unstable lifestyle and the issues that come along with it.”
You can stream and listen to ‘A Test Of Our Resolve’ below.
The bands upcoming third studio record, ‘Transmute’ is set to be released on August 20th 2021 via Marshall Records.
“With everything going on right now, things are moving way more slowly than we had hoped. To top it off, we’ve heard today that there are further delays on the delivery of the vinyl. We want to have everything in order and to be able to deliver you guys the full package, so we’ve had to push the album back by just a little bit. So here we go. ‘Transmute’ will now be released on the 20th of August 2021. There will be lots of content on the lead up to the release, and maybe even a show announcement or two. Stay safe, see you soon.”
Press to MECO have officially announced their third album, ‘Transmute’.
Recorded in-between lockdowns, the record is set for release on 11th June via Marshall Records
Drummer and vocalist Lewis Williams says of the full-length: “It questions whether we can make a significant change for the better, in ourselves, in our relationships and as a society. Positive change can sometimes feel like you’re trying to find a way to turn lead into gold.”

It’s that time of the week I love. That’s right, another music video roundup. For those new to the blog and the post, this weekly post is where I search for the best videos released in the last week, and there have been some great ones released in the last week.
First up are the lads from Ice Nine Kills who have been releasing some amazing music videos as of late. Their latest release is the fourth instalment of ‘The Silver Scream film’ in Stabbing In The Dark.
Let’s go next to Rise Records latest signings Ashland. They’re a duo from St. Louis who have dropped a new EP, ‘misc’ a visual video to celebrate the occasion.
Moving to some Singer/ Songwriter music. British Pop-Punker Bronnie never stops. She’s already released two EP’s this year and now has moved onto a new video for ‘Fake It’.
The video sees footage from her history, edited with cartoonish lyrics across her Pop-Punk backdrop.
Next up are The Menzingers are getting back into the swing of things, especially with their new track called ‘The Freaks’, accompanied with a Halloween themed music video.
And next, let’s go to LA for a little bit of punk. Drug Church are in the lead up to release their new record, and to celebrate, they have a brand new video, ‘Unlicensed Hall Monitor’, which focuses on the bad faith arguing and sanctimonious behaviour that often thrives on social media faith arguing and sanctimonious behaviour that often thrives on social media.
Moving on, ahead of this bands supporting slot for Shinedown, London trio Press MECO have dropped a video for ‘Itchy Fingers’ which is about the insecurities and negative thought patterns that present themselves at certain points in life.
More Halloween style videos! Yungblud have dropped a gory video for ‘Kill Somebody’ which will see him cover himself in a lot, and I mean a lot of blood!
Now to go to the Ukraine! After a few years of touring, heavy-hitter Kinjer are now back and ready to unleash new music, and now they’re going ‘Ape’. On the track, the band have said: “We’ve been constantly on the road, grinding and working tirelessly to bring our music to new places and new ears and this track is the culmination of all the blood and sweat, the good, the bad and the sacrifices we’ve made in the last two years to get to this point. We really hope you enjoy it because this would not be possible without you- our supporters and believers. This one is for all of us!”
To Yorkshire! For our penultimate video, we have the latest signee to Stay Sick Recordings and they have the perfect celebration in the form of their video for ‘Good For Nothing’. The track is expected to feature on the band’s upcoming and yet-to-be-titled record.
And lastly on this weeks video countdown list, we have the ever fantastic, Casey with their video for ‘The Funeral’. Speaking about the video, frontman Tom Weaver has shared “We are once again incredibly please to be collaborating with our longstanding creative director and friend, Martyna Wisniewska, and take great pride and pleasure in presenting to you the cinematic new video for our latest single, The Funeral.”
