Yours Truly Release New Track, ‘Walk Over My Grave’

Yours Truly have now entered their new era!

The band have shared the track and video for ‘Walk Over My Grave’ which is a fresh slice of hard rock with a tonne of atmosphere!

It’s a significant left turn for the band but once which is quite exciting.

In addition, this is the first release of new music from the band since the release of their debut full length record, ‘Self Care’ which released last year on UNFD.

Currently at the moment, there’s no word on if this is a standalone single or will be part of a larger release in the form of an EP or Record. Any updates on this will be confirmed as they develop.

Check out ‘Walk Over My Grave’ below.

Yours Truly Release New Video ‘Siamese Souls’ Off Debut Record Self Care

Yours Truly have dropped a new music video for ‘Siamese Souls’. Taken from their breakout 2020 debut album Self Care, ‘Siamese Souls’ discusses vocalist Mikaila Delgado‘s turning to astrology as a means to cope with and find meaning as her relationship was ending — in her words “it’s about sugar coating the fate of a relationship by looking towards astrology ….it can be so easy to become ignorant to the reality of the situation because you convince yourself the universe is bigger than you.”

Check out ‘Siamese Souls’ below.

After its long-awaited release in September, Self Care took Yours Truly from Australia’s pop-punk bright lights to one of the word’s most watched up and comers in the scene. The album took out the lauded Feature Album slot on triple j, and found Yours Truly hand picked to perform on the station’s famed Like A Version segment covering Oasis’ ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’. Singles including ‘Composure’, ‘Together’ and ‘Funeral Home’ trail-blazed over global radio including Kerrang! Radio, BBC R1, Sirius XM Emo Project, Triple M and idobi, meanwhile the full album has racked up in excess of 5.5 million streams

Thematically, Self Care unravelled the momentous year 2019 was for the band personally and professionally, and the means for reflection and coping that writing their debut album was for them.

Yours Truly play headline shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane throughout May before heading off to support label-mates Slowly Slowly on their national headline tour in June. Self Care is out everywhere now.

Check Out This New Track From Slowly Slowly Which Features Yours Truly’s Mikaila Delgado

Slowly Slowly have teamed up with Yours Truly vocalist Mikaila Delgadofor new single ‘First Love’.

It’s a track from ‘Race Car Blues – Chapter 2’, which is out from 26th February and features music from the same sessions as 2020 album ‘Race Car Blues’.

On the track, Ben Stewart says the song explores “the rose coloured glasses of retrospection and running from the past. I wanted a song that captured the duality of wanting to forget someone, but holding their memory dearly.”

Of the collab, he adds: “I approached Mikaila about the collaboration as I’m a huge fan of Yours Truly. She instantly understood the vibe we were going for and was incredible to work with. Mikaila was really intuitive with building the vocal arrangement, her harmonies and tonality really made the song feel complete.”

Check out the track below.

New Music Video Roundup 11/09/20

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the new music video roundup. We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos. 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!

Up first this week are the noisy Atlanta duo ’68 where they have a video for ‘Bad Bad Lambo’ where the band’s new track and the lead single from their recently released EP, ‘Love Is Ain’t Dead’.

Up next we have the band Bad Nerves with ‘Electric 88’.

Directed and produced by the band’s own Bobby Nerves, it’s a cut from the group’s self-titled debut album, set for release on 23rd October via Killing Moon Records.

“ELECTRIC 88 is about having a good time whilst you can,” says Bobby, “cause the world is fucked up and the clock is ticking. I still can’t imagine looking in the mirror and being an old man, but obviously, I know it’s a certainty. Unless I die young I guess… But that reality coupled with finding it extremely hard to breath most of the time is kind of what kick-started the theme of this song.”

Second this week are fresh faced band Forlorn have debuted their new single, ‘Colour Lost’, their fourth single and the second since signing with label Silent Cut.

The track has been released with an accompanying video (created by PurpleYam Productions), and you can check it out below.

Time for a remix.

Hot Milk have taped Lovelytheband’s Mitchy Collins and Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus with putting a spin on their track ‘Candy Coated Lie$’.

Shades of house and EDM, alonside the funkiest bass you will find anywhere, coat the band’s wonderful melodies and create a really unique and undeniable track. 

Mixed with this 8-bit version of characters whom you may find familiar, check it out.

Moving into a massively different genre now, while the audio stream of BVDLVD’s (pronounced ‘Badlad’) single “SHUT DOWN” (ft. Jasiah) has racked up nearly 78k views on Youtube, fans have been clamoring for a music video– and they finally have one.

BVDLVD’s third studio album, ‘LUNATIC’ has amassed 5 million streams, and contains an impressive list of features including LA rapper Lil Darkie, German producer Pulse and most notably a collaboration with Lyrical Lemonade’s latest star boy and 6IX9INE collaborator Jasiah on the jaw-dropping opener ‘SHUT DOWN’, ‘LUNATIC’ is already being hailed as BVD’s most ambitious and accomplished album to date.

BVDLVD says, “This video is like the trap metal version of “Praise the Lord” by ASAP Rocky and Skepta. Lockdown or not, imma still get involved with my g’s across the pond. I’m here to make shit happen.”

And switching things up again, how about some Medieval Rock?

Feuerschwanz have released the official music video for their song “Im Bauch des Wals” (english: In The Belly Of The Whale). The song comes off their brand new album Das Elfte Gebot which was released on June 26 and landed at #3 on the official German album charts, where it remained for 8 consecutive weeks.

Im Bauch des Wals“ is about a majestic sea creature who did not swallow biblical Jona, but rather so much man made plastic that it eventually dies and sinks into the ocean.

The ship that Hodi and Hauptmann discovered on their trip to England went aground just before Land’s End in 2003 on its way from Cork (Ireland) to Lübeck – with 2200 tons of plastic on board.

Ever since then it’s right there at the beach, moaning and groaning whenever the high waves hit – just like a stranded whale dying…

We tried to capture the eerie and somehow mystical vibes of that place for you. A place where you go like: What kind of planet are we leaving to our descendants? One thing’s for sure: a whole lot of plastic waste.”

Now heading into familiar territory, ahead of the release of their hotly-anticipated debut record this month, Australia’s pop-punk bright lights Yours Truly have revealed a new single ‘Funeral Home’ today. The track premiered via triple j’s Good Nights last night, and today’s official release comes alongside a new music video. 

‘Funeral Home’ explores a sentiment perhaps many can relate to, after vocalist Mikaila Delgado found herself coming to a personal realisation on family as she grew older:

I wrote ‘Funeral Home’ after going to a funeral and realising how odd it is to be in a room of people you’re related to because someone has died,” she explains.

“I was thinking about how sad it is that you miss the life of someone you have the same blood as and all of a sudden in tragedy everyone suddenly comes together as family yet then won’t talk until the next one.”

Joining previously-released singles ‘Composure’, ‘Together’ and ‘Undersize’ (jointly on a whopping 3 quarter of a million streams already), the full release of Self Care on September 18 is shaping to be a breakout moment for Yours Truly. 

Moving to iDKHOW right now, the band have launched a new video for ‘Leave Me Alone’.

Directed by Raul Gonzo and shot in Los Angeles in August 2020, it’s a track from upcoming debut album ‘Razzmatazz’, set for release on 16th October.

“Making a video in the middle of a pandemic was a challenge,” explains Dallon Weekes. “We decided to incorporate a lot of things from the state of the world as it is now. Social distancing, sterile isolation, etc. it all seemed to fit with the song’s themes of wanting to quarantine yourself from toxic people and situations.”

Following the recent release of their new single ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’, Our Last Night have now shared a video to accompany the track.

At the time of writing, it’s uncertain whether or not the track will feature on a forthcoming and yet-to-be-announced EP or full-length album.

And lastly this week, we had to choose this video. It’s big, it’s mental and just plain weird.

Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon have teamed up with rock superstar-in-the-making Yungblud for their brand new single, ‘Obey’.

It’s the third single to come from the band since their 2019 full-length ‘amo’ (excluding their ‘Music To Listen To…’ EP), and is expected to feature on a yet-to-be-announced new record.

Speaking on the track, vocalist Oliver Sykes had this to say.

“We consider ourselves free but only because the chains are invisible, and we are controlled in ways we don’t even want to think about. They tell us how to live with a smile on their face, like shit ain’t fucked up, inform us of tragic statistics like its nothing… it’s a weird world.”

Yungblud also had this to add regarding its message.

“We are being told to conform to a completely outdated idea that we don’t relate to or even understand. They teach us to turn against each other and to fight against our differences rather than embrace and celebrate them. They try to keep us divided because it makes us weaker. Robots follow robots, because they feel nothing at all. But what they don’t realise is that to us, to be different is to be free and a world of fucking love and equality is a world we want to be part of. We will rise above the hate and the diversion. We will fight for the world we want to be a part of. We will not obey.”

And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.

New Music Video Roundup 07/08/20

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the new music video roundup. We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos. 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, I’ve selected the Boston, Massachusetts heavy hitters Vein (Whom now have appeared to have changed their name to Vein.fm.).

Their track, ’20 Seconds : 20 Hours’ is a reworked version of ‘Untitled’ from their 2018 debut record, ‘Errorzone’ and appears on their newly released compilation, ‘Old Data In a New Machine’.

‘Old Data In A New Machine, Vol. 1’ is out right now digitally with a physical released scheduled for late September via Closed Casket Activities.

Heading off straight for the Dublin up and comers Jet Fuel Chemistry, the Quartet haev released a video for ‘Sleep’ which is a track off their upcoming EP, ‘Sign Of The Times’ which was released today.

On ‘Sleep’ the band have said:

“‘Sleep’ is the second track on the EP, with a focus on the exacerbating of isolation and mental illness by social media. It’s paradoxical that the more time we spend “connected” to one another, the more alone we feel.

All in all, the world is a really chaotic and fucked up place right now and if we’d written a release without this tone we’d feel dishonest and, frankly, there’s every chance we’d have gone insane. People need to stop vilifying each other, and instead unite to hold those with power accountable for our misery. It’s a positive message that we hope anyone can get behind.”

We’re going to switch things up right now in the format and switch to a live video for this next choice.

While the majority of the metal community are enjoying the premiere of the Wacken World Wide XR live streams in this pandemic-struck summer, Ukrainian heavy hitters Jinjer are celebrating the one-year anniversary of their groundbreaking Wacken Open Air 2019 performance by unleashing a blistering live video of their breakthrough song, “Pisces”, captured at the festival.

“Pisces” is the second track released from this show, with “Perennial” being the first released from the Wacken sessions – boasting over 3.2 million views and counting.

Next continuing the heavier sounds we have the sextet Oceans Of Slumber with their video for ‘The Colours Of Grace’, the new track taken from their upcoming self-titled record.

Mike Moss of Antimatter also features on this track, another reason to check this one out.

Oceans Of Slumber’s self titled record is set to be released September 4th 2020 via Century Media Records.

Who wants some German Rock? That’s what you don’t hear a lot of these days. German bands. I guess some just don’t make it across sometimes but I’m so glad this next band Kid Dad has come to my attention.

‘What You Call A Dream’ is the latest single from the German four-piece Kid Dad. It’s pacy and powerful with an energetic lead riff. It demonstrates the band’s punkier side, following on from ‘Limbo’ and ‘A Prison Unseen’, and reflects their playful preferences with the use of delays, and the interaction between distorted and clean signals. 

What You Call A Dream’ was a spontaneous jam that came naturally to the band and was written in just an hour.“Marius, Michi, and I were in the rehearsal room at some point and hadn’t actually planned on writing a song. The whole thing went faster than we ever thought it was possible. Everything came together without us having to think twice about what would happen next,” says Max (bass, backing vocals). 

Marius (vocals, guitar) says of the upcoming album, “We are not linear, easy to calculate or predictable. We are individual human beings who react individually. Nobody is allowed to determine what to be afraid of and what to look forward to. Nobody except oneself. Nobody knows everything about themselves – we are definitely still battling with questions. One may even sometimes wonder why one is the way one is – we definitely do. You are not alone and this album is meant to help you understand that.”

‘In A Box’, which is the bands debut record is set to be release 21st August 2020 via Long Branch Records.

We’re getting the miles in for this weeks roundup aren’t we? Good, because we’re heading right over to Australia for Yours Truly.

The Pop-Punks have shared another taste off their upcoming debut record, ‘Self Care’ in the form of their latest video, ‘Undersize’.

Where the rest of Self Care largely looks inward at Mikaila conquering her own personal struggles, ‘Undersize’ finds the vocalist looking on at a friend going through battles of their own. 

“This song is really a letter to a close friend of mine,” she explains. “While watching them navigating their life through all the ups, downs and obstacles life throws at them, I wrote this just to let them know that I’m here for them through all of that.”

The release follows a monumental few weeks for the four-piece, who upon announcing details of their record ‘Self Care’, were revealed as the newest addition to Select Agency’s huge roster of clients, as well as the latest hand picked guest for triple j’s famed Like A Version segment.

‘Self Care’ is set to be released September 18th 2020 via UNFD.

Check out their latest release in ‘Undersize’ below.

We’re just going to places I haven’t thought of in a while. I think that’s just the theme for this weeks roundup.

We’re in Idaho next for Young, Planetary where they’ve recently debuted a video for their latest single, ‘Separate Rides Home’.

The band tells Outburn; “The video was shot by our good friend and photographer / honorary fifth member of the band, Kenyon McWilliams. It felt so strange to be working on a music video but not being able to be in the same room as the rest of the band. Luckily, we were able to put something together that’s not only, “socially distant,” but also very visually appealing and exciting. Most of it was shot in our bass player’s backyard, but a good chunk of it was also done at Table Rock here in Boise.”

Regarding the inspiration for the song, Trevor Villagrana (vocals/guitar) says, “When an old girlfriend of mine and I split up, we did what a lot of couples do and tried to meet up and talk things out. We would go to this restaurant that we used to eat at all the time when we were together and do our best to salvage the feelings we had for one another. After a few times of meeting up, we had stacked up these garage receipts from where we would park our cars. But no matter how much we talked, we could never make it work. We would end up walking back to our cars to “take our separate rides home,” so to speak. It’s tough admitting defeat in situations like that.”

The band’s upcoming EP ‘Locations I Can’t Place’ will be released on August 7 via Hidden Home Records.

We’re heading into another self titled EP territory, this time with the Illinois Pop-Punkers Wilmette with the video for their latest track, ‘A D D E R A L L’, which is the first single off the band’s upcoming release set to debut on September 25th 2020 via Mutant League Records.

Peyton Day (bass/vocals) tells Alternative Press: “This video is supposed to be the epitome of hindsight in a relationship. As the aliens rummage through the crashed spaceship, they find a log of events that detailed how the astronauts crashed into their planet. They know they were too late in helping, and all they can do is watch the aftermath. Only two-fifths of the group come back, signifying a change in their reality, while the aliens are obviously unscathed.”

Heading back to Australia for the latest video from Stand Atlantic, ‘Blurry’ continues the story started in ‘Jurassic Park’.

There’s definitely a much darker and disturbing vibe to ‘Blurry’ than previous videos which shows how the same place can look through a different set of eyes. Nevertheless, it continues the amazing streak of content Stand Atlantic have been releasing into the world in anticipation of their record,’Pink Elephant’., which was released today (August 7th 2020) via Hopeless Records.

Creeper have done a massive job with their concept record, ‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’. The record released last week via Roadrunner Records and at the time of writing (which is a few days in advanc), it’s sitting at the number two position in the midweek UK Albums Chart.

The visuals they created for the record though, have been amazing. It’s truly a concept record in every meaning of the word where they’ve created a engaging narrative which spans everything they could possibly do.

In the narrative of the music videos which was set in motion in ‘Poisoned Heart’, is now complete in the form of ‘Born Cold’ in our last pick of the week for the Music Video Roundup.

And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles 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!

Music Video Roundup 31/07/20

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the new music video roundup. We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos. 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 is Jamie Lenman. With his EP, ‘King Of Clubs’ getting closer and closer, he’s released a new video in the form of ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend’.

This initially premiered over on Louder, the video was shot during lockdown, and features a handful of familiar faces from bands such as Black Peaks, Ithaca, Wargasm, Haggard Cat, and more.

This is what Lenman had to say of the song.

“After my last originals album ‘Devolver’ was a quite a contemplative, inward-looking record, I started looking outwards for ‘King Of Clubs’ and obviously I got pretty angry pretty quickly about the state of the world. The first single, ‘Summer Of Discontent’, was all about feeling helpless in the face of corrupt governments, and now this new single is about calling out unacceptable behaviour amongst your own peers.

I’m fed up of all the excuses people use to explain away things like bullying or racism and it felt good to finally say something about it publicly. I feel like there are a lot of lines being drawn in the sand at this time and hopefully here’s one more.”

We’re heading over to Buffalo for our next pick in this weeks countdown with the metalcore quartet Until I Wake, with the band’s latest release in ‘Less Of Me’, shot during lockdown.

Cody Johnson (Vocals) says:

“‘Less Of Me’ is a song that shows our softer side. We recorded the video ourselves due to lockdown from COVID-19. The lyrics are about giving up on a relationship that feels one sided, watching someone move on and not seem to care while you are left hurting.”

Who’s up for a live performance?

Northlane recently announced the details of a streaming event where they’ll be showcasing their sold out Roundhouse, Sydney show from October 2019.

“Like everybody on this platform around the world, we really miss live music. Both watching and performing, it’s a life changing and defining passion that runs through our veins. We’ve always wanted to bring this experience home to you, and right now there is no better time to do that.

If you’ve watched Negative Energy, you’ll know how big of a deal it was to come and sell out the Roundhouse in Sydney on the Alien world tour, after such a difficult time prior to this landmark album coming out. We knew we’d want to revisit this night so we brought in a whole camera crew, captured all the audio and had it pro mixed & mastered. Many of the older songs sound better than they ever did on record.

This will be your ONLY chance to watch this show in it’s entirety. Tickets are $10USD per stream. Not bad for the price of a beer in Sydney. We’ll be live chatting to you during the event too.”

Now, here’s what you can expect with a live video of ‘Bloodline’.

Keeping things Aussie for one more track but switching up the genre, we have Yours Truly. The bands animated video venture for ‘Together’ is the second track from their upcoming debut record, ‘Self Care’ where they have a Mortal Kombat style to things

‘Self Care’ is set to be released on September 18th via UNFD.

Vocalist Mikaila Delgado had this to say about the album:

“There was this almost electric feeling of excitement about getting to sit down and write our first record but also a huge feeling of anxiety at the same time.

We didn’t want to release something and have people say that we’re actually not that good and weren’t worthy of all the success we were getting… it was like we all had imposter syndrome.”

Moving to the Rap Metal genre for the next video of choice but still keeping the animation theme going are the California’s Body Count.

This track of choice for ‘Three Critical Beatdown’ is off their recently released record, ‘Carnivore’, which is available now via Century Media Records.

Who wants a new band to be checking out?

I haven’t found much information on this band as I’d like to for the post but there was something so compelling about the track and the video an exception had to have been made. I’ll be keeping an eye on Coldcasket in the near future as they storm on the video for ‘Letting Go’.

From Pouring Rain to their raging fires, Malevolence have their release of ‘The Other Side’ which is something must be watched because visually, it’s one of the most exciting things I’ve seen in a while.

Vocalist Alex Taylor had this to say about what the song means to them:

“The Other Side is a big step outside of our comfort zone both musically and visually. Anyone that has followed us since the beginning will be aware that we have tested the waters with a more melodic sound previously but we have never taken the full plunge until now. 

“We were very apprehensive as to how The Other Side would be received by our supporters, since it seems that progression is something that is rarely welcomed within the metal world. However, we strongly believe that we have a lot more to offer as musicians than just heavy riffs and hard mosh parts, and that the strength of the song would be enough to win over even the most skeptical metal purists. 

Lyrically the song covers the topic of losing someone, whether we are referring a romantic relationships or bereavement is open to your interpretation.”

Moving into Arizona territory right now with one of Rude Record’s latest signings in Sundressed.

The video for ‘Your Frequency’ is the band’s first new track since their signing with the label where their second studio record, ‘Home Remedy’ will be released September 18th 2020.

Frontman Trevor Hedges had this to say of the track.

“‘Your Frequency’ is about the “side-hustle” culture. How it’s never okay to relax, how something always comes up when you’re almost ahead. This song is about the desire to have less worry about essential needs and have more time to be human.”

After releasing their latest track a few week’s ago, Hot Milk have now a visual approach for ‘California’s Burning’.

The band had the following to say:

“We had something to say so we just fkin said it. Not anti-American, just anti-asshole.

“This is a rally cry against greed and the ruling class that so desperately cling to control the freethinkers and the good hearted.  We are all children of today and mavericks of tomorrow.

“We can build a bridge because their minds are too narrow.”

In addition, the track is available to buy on 7′ record with a portion of the proceeds going to the Black Lives Matter movement as well as Stop Hate UK.

Last week Neck Deep released their fourth record as a group which was ‘All Distortions Are Intentions’ where this video was the last before the album cycle started. The track they had for this video? ‘Sick Joke’.

On the release, Ben Barlow (Vocals) had the following to say:

“It’s a song that questions the fabric of reality whilst battling mental health. Jett contemplates whether life itself is even real, in fairly ethereal terms, due to the internal suffering he is experiencing. Shredding solos, punchy rhythms and stomping drums drive the song along, and it sonically represents the more minor driven side of the record.”

And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles 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!

Music Video Roundup 24/04/20

The music video roundup is back! That’s right now things are looking bleak so I wanted to re-instate the roundup so everyone has something new to be watching. In addition to this, there’s a new weekly tracks post coming because it will not stop the music!

First things first, to get up started we have Puppy. ‘Powder Blue’ is the last one on their last EP, ‘iii’ On the track they’ve said: “We called it that because it was our third EP, and because there are three of us in the band. For whatever reason, triptychs, triplets, three-pieces & trilogies felt quite important to us at that point.

 

Up in the second spot this week is the Manchurian Pop-Rock up and comers who have just about established themselves with this reworked mashup of two of their tracks in a toned-down version for ‘Wide Awake (In Awful Ever After) for which both tracks are cut from 2019’s ‘Are You Feeling Alive’ EP. In addition to the new cut of the track, we have some behind the scenes footage of the band as well as some live footage for everyone to enjoy.

Now, who’s up for some gymnastics and a pulsating slow-burning performance? Well, that’s just what Frank Iero And The Future Violents have in store for us as Frank himself explains:

“It was apparent to me early on while writing Barriers that ‘Medicine Square Garden’ was its most important track. It was the cornerstone upon which the rest of the record and band was formed. If we lost the battle on that song, the rest didn’t stand a chance. ‘Medicine Square Garden’ pushed the most boundaries, scratched the most itches, and terrified me far beyond any other song I had written. So when we crossed off every box in Chicago at Electrical Audio and listened back with smiles knowing we had accomplished our goals, a new objective soon emerged: Get the label to see our favorite song as a single, and let us make the video of my dreams.”

“‘Medicine Square Garden’ is not your typical single. It’s a five and a half minute attempt at answering the question, ‘What if Prince wrote a Sleep song?’ Oh and if that’s not batshit enough for you, I already had the video in my head. So armed with crudely drawn set designs and a typed-up description of a witchy calisthenics workout meets a Robert Palmer alien massacre, I submitted my pitch to the label. This was my vision from the beginning and no one told me I was crazy. What a world.”

Next up, we have a little talk of Nothing, Nowhere. It’s a track that’s full of harsh beats and vocals which are somehow a little harsher. You can watch ‘Death’ below.

Now, since Suitor released their debut in October of last year the band have been busy.  They’ve been touring like crazy and as well as working on their upcoming second EP. The video for that second release is now complete in the form of ‘Deep Sleep’.

On the track singer Casey Smith has said:

“‘Deep Sleep’ as a video conveys the battle of addiction and temptation; literally in the form of alcoholism, or something else entirely based on perspective. Drug abuse, codependency, self medication, whatever it takes to find respite in a depressive or anxious reality. That solution or “fix” is portrayed in the siren character. For the wandering male lead, it is the only option, the only path that leads to a salvation without despair, in her embrace. Even if it means the end for him, he cant resist the cure, allowing her to pull him beneath the surface, finally at peace. He wakes, stunned to realize that it was only a dream; a temporary escape. Where does he go from here?”

For another up and coming band we have Static Dress. They’ve been on the up and there’s no signs of them stopping. Now they have a new track in the form os ‘Safeword’ which has an accompanying video where they return to the green and white room from their debut single, ‘Clean’.

Moving on in the list Dance Gavin Dance have launched a new video, with the help of their fans. In their ‘Three Wishes’ video, the band put a call out for people to send in footage of themselves cleaning their houses, brushing their teeth etc (A little strange right?)

But ‘Three Wishes’ is off their upcoming record ‘Afterburner’, which is due to be released April 24th via Rise Records.

 

Now we have Eat Away My Heart. It’s actually a track title on this one. I’m sure everyoen’s thinking the same, is it? It’s actually a fact! This track comes from the brilliant Wallflower whom have their debut record, ‘Teach Yourself To Swim’ on its way and now there’s a video to go with it!

On the track though, vocalist/guitarist Vini Moreira-Yeoell has said:

“It’s a song about giving away all the best parts of yourself to someone in the hope that the person in question will like you a little more, which never works by the way.”

Check out ‘Eat Away At My Heart’ below.

Now we’re nearing the endgame for this weeks list where A Day To Remember’s time has finally come on the list. Everyone’s eagerly awaiting the release of their seventh record, ‘You’re Welcome’, the band have decided to share just what’s coming with their latest cut off the record, ‘Mindreader’.

This follows on from ‘Degenerates’ and ‘REsentment’ where the track has an accompanying animated video that tells the story of a man in a mental battle with his girlfriend who’s portrayed as a mystical physic woman.

On the track, frontman Jeremy McKinnon has said:

“We’ve had this video done for some time now, and seeing as how our album isn’t out yet and the state of the world is keeping us off the road, we wanted to get some new material out there for our fans as soon as possible.

This song was one of my personal favorites off the new album from the day it was written. I wrote it with the incredibly talented Mike Green. Fun fact, it was the first song I’ve ever sent the guys in the band that was unanimously loved. This song was written to be a lighthearted take on people in relationships expecting their partners to read their minds.”

Lastly, on the list for this weeks Roundup, we have Yours Truly. They have released ‘Composure’ which is there first taste of new music from the band since the release of their EP ‘Afterglow’ in 2019.

On the track Vocalist Mikaila Delgado has explained:

And that’s it for this week’s Music Video Roundup list. Be sure to check back next week for another look at what’s being released in the music world.
