Music Video Roundup 19/07/19

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. The first band on today’s roundup are going for a ‘Generational Divide’ and that is, of course, Blink 182. The band’s yet to be announced eighth studio record is expected to be released later this year.


Pressing ahead with their content for their upcoming record, ‘Breathe’, Tiny Moving PArts are becoming doctors in their latest video for ‘Medicine’ as vocalist/ guitarist Dylan Mattheisen goes under as his bandmates perform surgery. Let’s see how this goes.


Heading into the heavier side of things, quartet Stitched Up Heart have released a brand new track which also features some vocals from Godsmack’s Sully Erna.

On the track, the band have shared: “‘Lost’ is about being trapped inside your mind and struggling against yourself to see the light. Sully and I had been trying to work on something together for a while and I’m so grateful that we were able to collaborate on this. It turned out even better than I imagined.”


Keeping things moving along in fashion, Babymetal have recently unveiled their brand new video for ‘Pa Pa Ya’ which also features Thai rapper F.Hero in a spectacular live video.


Moving into the hardcore territory for the next choice in the music video countdown for this week, Newcastle quintet Starve to Survive debuted the video for the track ‘Have Me To Waste’ which is also their title track from the band’s recent EP.

Directed by the amazing Olli Appleyard, the band have said:

“‘Have Me To Waste’ as a whole, represents personal struggle, claustrophobia and learning to live with self-doubt on a day to day basis. In some areas of the video, the character can be seen struggling frantically in an almost coffin-like scenario, which really digs into the idea of being held captive between walls.”


Taking a step back into the Poppier side of things, Tay Jardine’s musical side project SAINTE has released a new track, ‘Everything Makes Me Sad’ which is expected to feature on the upcoming EP.


Grayscale have announced that their upcoming record, ‘Nella Vita’ is set to be released September 6th via Fearless Records and with the announcement comes a brand new single, ‘In Violet’ where Colin Walsh (vocals) has said:

“When I die, I want people to celebrate my life and enjoy each other’s togetherness, rather than mourn my death in a miserable way. I’ve dealt with a lot of loss and long episodes of grief the past couple years, and it made me realize how much it can wear on you. When I go, I want everyone to celebrate, sing, laugh, and dress in violet.”


Now to take over a bingo hall. That’s a bit of a weird place to take over in an instant but that’s exactly what SWMRS have done as they bring their punky vibes for a good time in the video for ‘Lose Lose Lose’.

Cole Becker (Vocals) shared:

“I always wanted to know what it would feel like to crowd surf if the average age of the crowd was 71 instead of 17. Ambar and I talked a lot about this video as a way of inverting the formula of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’. Being a young person in 2019 feels a lot more like being in an inhospitable bingo club than being in the hyper-idealized vision of a punk show. You have all this energy and vision and passion to contribute to the world, and you’re constantly met with this sludgy rejection as if you’re intruding on someone else’s party.”


For the penultimate video today, I thought I’d bring something a few people might not know of and that this Landon Tewers (The Plot In You) solo project as he’s gearing up for the release of his second record in the form of ‘Something To Lose’ which in fact just dropped today! Here’s a taste of what you’ll hear.


And for the final video this week, I know this was released in the last month but I wanted to end on a banger! Neck Deep’s latest record cycle seems to be in effect right now and that comes with the phenomenal track ‘She’s A God’ which is such an important track right now because it’s about the bands other halfs not as sex objects or a reference to derogatory comments or terms, it’s about them being embraced by the band for the people they are to them, gods.


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.

5 Acts You Have To Check Out At Slam Dunk Festival

Slam Dunk Festival 2019 is just under one month away! That means everyone’s gearing up to decide on their plans for the day for who to see across the eight stages and who to meet (but I’ll save that for another time and if any band members are about on the day). For myself, I’m heading to the Leeds Temple Newsam Park date and I’m in a bind of just who go watch for the day. I’m torn between going to see some favourites against some that I’ve listened to for a while but just never had the chance to see live or someone whom I’ve never listened to before, but judging by the artists that are there, there aren’t too many I’ve never listened to.

Although, with all the acts that are going to be there, here’s my top five to check out just from a glance of who’s playing the festival.

5. Lizzy Farrall


I’ll start off with one of my favourite’s and because it’s been a little while since I’ve seen this Singer/ Songwriter live. Every time I’ve seen Lizzy, (most recently was her opening the He Is We UK tour) she has been a performer that has just been constantly growing and adapting to her surroundings where she’ll know what’s working and what isn’t. With her being a young performer as well, it’s been a pleasure to see her confidence grow with her music as well. Don’t miss her on the Acoustic stage.

4. Atreyu


A band on the heavier side of things over on the Jagermeister stage, the South Californians Atreyu have been just been getting better and better from my perspective and now in their eighteenth year as a band, their performance is sure to have some surprises for their longtime fans.

3. Real Friends


The last time I saw real friends, I believe it was on Neck Deep’s UK headline tour. From what I remember, they were just f***ing crazy on the stage where there was just never a dull moment. They just encapsulated the heavier aspect of the Pop-Punk scene and they’re a band that the scene have been desperately missed on the UK shores and if I know anything about them, you’ll have all the feels  as far as they’re concerned over on the Marshall Stage.

2. Tiny Moving Parts


Swell is the name of Tiny Moving Part’s most recent record where hopefully this is how we’ll describe their performance. Only joking, but this criminally underrated band are one of the early starters to the day Dickies Stage and they better be prepared to get everybody moving and I am hoping for either For The Sake Of Brevity or Fish Bowl to be in that setlist.

  1. Employed To Serve


I have to go with ETS on this list. I do admit I was shocked when I saw that they were going to appear on this years lineup, but I was so thrilled nevertheless as they’re a completely underrated and hardworking band who’ve been moving up and up the bills and venues for years. With the band releasing their third record, ‘Eternal Forward Motion’ about two weeks before the festival, everyone watching better be prepared to move and mosh on The Key Club stage.

Music Video Roundup 25/01/18

It’s that time of the week again! It’s time for another music video roundup! Those unfamiliar to the series of posts which come out every Friday, I look for ten of my favourite recently released music videos for the audience’s viewing pleasure and compose a list for everyone to enjoy! Let’s get straight into things with Puppy. Their newest record just dropped today and this track for ‘The Goat’ was their last before fans got to listen to the entire thing.


Cane Hill have just released a brand new EP, which is something definitely more toned down than their usual hard-hitting material but, it’s something which is just as amazing. With that, the four-piece from New Orleans has released a video for their opening track, “86d – No Escort”


Moving across to Oakland, those Punks in SWMRS are starting their 2019 by giving fans a sneak peek into their upcoming Third record, ‘Berkeley’s On Fire’ with their latest video, ‘Trashbag Baby’.


Now, something a little more alternative as we go for Follower whom have just released their new video in the form of ‘Voices’, which comes from the bands upcoming 6-track EP, ‘Against The Ropes’.


Ahead of this band’s upcoming record, ‘The Language Of Injury’, newcomers Ithaca have a new video for ‘Impulse Crush’.


I do enjoy having all sorts of videos in these lists, and I’m going to switch it up for this next video from One Ok Rock. The band were on a tour of Japan in October last year and the one thing this band does magnificently is providing the atmosphere of their shows and you can experience it for yourself in their live video for their latest single, ‘Stand Out Fit In’ below.


Moving on, next we have Tiny Moving Parts. The Emo/Post Hardcore trio has recently released a new limited edition two-song 7″ and now, the double single record has a video to ‘For The Sake Of Brevity’


Now for an artist who has been teasing for a while now! This is, of course, Yungblud and his new track for ‘Loner’. His website had been teasing everyone all week until the release of the track.


For With Confidence, they went all supernatural for their latest single off their 2018 record, ‘Love & Loathing’. For the video of ‘Icarus’, the video shows a typical modern love story, ending in a boy turning into stone.


And for the last video, it comes from As It Is. In the last week, the band confirmed that long-time touring member Ronnie Ish would be coming aboard as a permanent member of the band and for the second announcement, they dropped a brand new live video for ‘The Fire, The Dark’ which was filmed at their biggest headlining show to date at London’s Kentish Town Forum.

And that’s it for another week of the music video roundup! Don’t forget to check back next week for another ten of the best recent music videos.
