Alexisonfire Release First New Song In Ten Years.

AlexisonfireMonday 18th February 2019
Iconic rock band ALEXISONFIRE debuted a brand new song, “Familiar Drugs” today. Produced by AOF's long-time friend Karl Bareham (City and Colour) and mixed by Grammy-award winning Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse), the impassioned banger marks the first time the band has released new music as Alexisonfire in almost 10 years.

A special vinyl pressing is available for pre-order today as a single-sided 7” vinyl with a laser-etched b-side. A limited edition glow-in-the-dark variant will be randomly inserted throughout the entire pressing of black vinyl stock. Along with the 7”, AOF will have new “Familiar Drugs” inspired merchandise on their official storefront HERE.

Stream “Familiar Drugs” now HERE.

Alexisonfire also announced four special headline shows this June in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto. Tickets for all show dates go on sale Friday 22nd February at 10am (local time). Fans can sign up to the band’s mailing list to receive a password for the artist pre-sale HERE. The Alexisonfire pre-sale will be live Tuesday 19th February at 10am (local time). $1/£1 from each ticket sold (for all shows) will be donated to Indspire, a Canadian-based Indigenous-led registered charity that invests in the education of Indigenous people for the long term benefit of these individuals, their families and communities.

Dates include:
Sat 1st June - London @ Alexandra Palace
Sat 8th June - New York @ Terminal 5
Thu 13th June - Los Angeles @ The Wiltern
Sat 15th June - Toronto @ The Budweiser Stage 

TUNE IN to the band’s Facebook page tonight for a special live stream performance from the House of Strombo in Toronto. Alexisonfire will perform “Familiar Drugs” for the first time plus selections from their award-winning catalogue.

The event will stream live starting at 8PM EST (1AM in the UK) tonight at: https://www.facebook.com/AOFofficial/.

Talking about the new track, vocalist George Pettit explains, “‘Familiar Drugs’ is about recognising you need to make a change in your life, being presented with the opportunity to make that change, and then choosing to do the same thing you always do. It’s about something very specific to me but it can be taken literally or interpreted in any number of ways. Most people have something in their lives they can’t quit, substances, unhealthy relationships, lethargy, self righteousness, a job they hate. ‘Familiar Drugs’ is about choosing comfort over self betterment."

Hailing from St. Catharines, Alexisonfire rose up out of the Southern Ontario underground in late 2001, to become one of the most successful indie bands out of Canada. The band’s success also reached far beyond Canada’s borders. AOF released four hugely successful studio albums, Alexisonfire (2002), Watch Out (2004), Crisis (2006), and Old Crows / Young Cardinals (2009). Crisis debuted at #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan chart (Canada), and Old Crows / Young Cardinals debuted at #2, and charted at #9 on the US Billboard Independent Album chart. All four albums achieved Platinum certification in Canada and the band took home a coveted JUNO Award. They also graced multiple music magazine covers internationally (Kerrang!, Blunt, Big Cheese, Canadian Musician, Exclaim! to name but some). AOF’s sold-out 10th Year Anniversary Farewell tour in December 2012 touched down on four continents in jam-packed 24 days, illustrating how meaningful the band still is to their legion of fans around the world.

 Of Mice And Men Release New Single.

Of Mice And MenMonday 18th February 2019
NOf Mice & Men spent much of the fall hunkered down in the studio working on new material with producer Josh Wilbur. They have stormed out of the gates with a brand new, battering ram of a song entitled "How to Survive." 
Hinging on hard-hitting grooves and airtight riffing, the track snaps from visceral verses into an instantly chant-worthy growl of "In a world that teaches eye for an eye, I'll show you how to survive!" It's an instantly raw 'n' real, pit-stirring anthem.

"'How to Survive' is an anthem for those who have been the receiving end of unmerited and targeted hatred and abuse," said singer and bassist Aaron Pauley, offering a deeper insight into the impactful song. "It's for the kid who was bullied, beat up, and ignored in school. It's for the teenager who was told that they'll never amount to anything and that their thoughts, feelings, and opinions don't matter to the world. It's for the person who has been told that they're worthless, useless, or not good enough, time and time again. It's for the person who's repeatedly been targeted by those who only seek to tear others around them down."

He further stated, "This song is for them. This song is for me. I am them, and I'm still standing. So, turn it up. Feel the rage. If you, too, are that person, you will know it well, and it will greet you like an old friend."

The song is the first taste of new music from the Southern California quartet since last year's much-praised Defy album, which Loudwire proclaimed "delivers the sound fans have come to expect (big hooks, monster grooves and singalong melodies) while still breaking some new ground." Rock Sound labeled it "a lean beast of a record that gets right to the point." All Music declared it an "album warrants attention for its melody, power, and pure catchiness — a new and satisfying lease on life."

2019 is going to be a busy year for OM&M. The band will hit the road for back-to-back U.S. tours, hitting the road with Nothing More beginning next week. The band will then tour with Beartooth this spring. 

 Dave Hause To Release New Album 'Kick'.

Dave HauseMonday 18th February 2019
Acclaimed Philadelphia-raised singer-songwriter DAVE HAUSE is proud to announce his brand new studio album titled Kick . Out on Friday 12th April via Rise Records, Kick is Hause's fourth solo outing that finds him carrying on in the voice and tradition of classic American songwriters, tackling topics of hope, depression, global warming, a crumbling democracy, and growing old. These complex notions weave together with a joyous sing-along cadence that creates a soundtrack for the broken American dream.

'The Ditch' is the lead single from Kick that finds Hause, along with his brother and "musical soulmate" Tim Hause, facing mental health issues head-on, marking the first time in their respective careers that they've openly discussed their own struggles with depression.

You can listen to The Ditch here
In addition to the album announcement, Hause has announced a run of UK shows this spring in support of Kick.
You can see Dave Hause at the following dates:
10th May  - Scala London
11th May - Bodega Nottingham
12th May - Oran Mor Glasgow
13th May - WorLmans Club Dublin
14th May - Gorilla Manchester
15th May - Thekla Bristol

Tickets on sale tomorrow

Life is a struggle. Even when things go our way, it's a constant swim against the tide, kicking against the current in the hope we'll eventually find the shore.

That's the premise behind Dave Hause's new album titled Kick that will be released on Friday, April 12 through Rise Records. Kicking was the first thing he saw his newborn twins do and it's something he himself has been doing all his life. His career as a musician has spanned two decades, and his songs have always been a quest for personal survival – about pushing through against the odds – but his perspective shifted dramatically after the November 2016 election. Like many Americans, Hause believed the 2016 election divided people to create an "Us Vs. Them" mentality, but if you look closer, it's just really people trying to survive. He felt it was important to write about the things that were happening to the people "who have to get up and go to work everyday." That, Hause says, is when he and his brother and bandmate Tim Hause, really dug in.

Conflicting internal feelings sparked some deep, soul-searching conversations between Hause and Tim over numerous FaceTime sessions, voice notes and countless phone calls, which led to a cross-country songwriting relationship that would eventually lead to the album's purpose and focus. There is a sense of hope and defiance that permeates this record from beginning to end. "Saboteurs" takes issue with the systems in place that value profits over well-being, while "Warpaint" serves as both a tribute to the women in Hause's life as well as a moody call-to-arms.

Additionally, the tragic passing of friend and musical inspiration Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit prompted the brothers to write about finding – and coming back to – a sense of meaning and purpose again after going through their own battles. Understandably, the album's themes of finding the will to stick it out and make the best of where you are quickly became a major keystone of the new LP.
"I think those ideas show up in almost every song in some capacity. Beyond the personal lyrics, the concept of 'If I can't make it out of this ditch, I better make a home of it'
can be applied universally."
Kick doesn't sugarcoat either the personal problems or the global challenges at its center. At the core of this record there remains a vivid humanity and a hope that things can – and will – get better, even if it seems like the odds are stacked against us. When the only alternative is to drown, the first step towards survival is to kick. "There is comfort in desperation when you know that other people experience it too, and together you can both sing it and sing through it," Hause continues. "As I listen back, I hope the album offers more comfort than desperation. I hope we got that balance right."

 NOFX Announce The Return Of Their 7" Month Club.

Avril Lavine Releases New Single 'Dumb Blonde'.Friday 8th February 2019
Eight-time Grammy nominee and global recording superstar Avril Lavigne has released her new track "Dumb Blonde" featuring Nicki Minaj, via BMG Records.

The single gives fans another glimpse into her forthcoming album, being released this Friday, February 15th.

Listen to "Dumb Blonde": here

The release comes after Lavigne teased the song on her Twitter last week, describing it as a song that reminds you to "never let anyone put you down for being who you are. Stand up. Fight. Be you."
Lavigne is gearing up for an exciting album launch week with upcoming performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on February 13, Good Morning America on February 15, and LIVE! With Kelly and Ryan on February 18. The singer has been getting fans excited for the album's imminent release by teasing a couple tracks each day leading up to the album release date. 

The sassy track follows the release of first single, "Head Above Water"- a self-written anthem about overcoming her lyme disease that has earned over 165 million streams so far - and "Tell Me It's Over"- a track about finally leaving a tumultuous relationship. Both tracks were met with praise from fans and critics alike. Vogue Magazine described "Head Above Water" as "a fierce piano ballad that documents a culminating moment in Lavigne's years-long struggle with Lyme disease" and on "Tell Me It's Over", TIME Magazine says she "has never sounded stronger, or more confident."
PRE-ORDER "HEAD ABOVE WATER" HERE

 Millencolin To Release New Album.

MillencolinMonday 18th February 2019
Seminal Swedish skate-punk band Millencolin will release their ninth studio album 'SOS' this Friday via Epitaph Records. 'SOS' is their first album in four years, and it follows up 2015's 'True Brew'. In anticipation, they've revealed another track from the record in the form of 'Sour Days'. Its Descendents-esque catchiness helps fuel the album's many memorable moments, but it took a lot of work to get there. Vocalist/bassist Nikola Sarcevic originally came up with 30 rough ideas for the album, which he then sent to guitarist Mathias Färm, whose job it was to transform these random sketches into completed Millencolin songs. "The process took me half a year. It's like making a painting in a way," Färm recalls. Millencolin have already released the album's first single and title track 'SOS', as well as the more recently revealed 'Nothing'.

For over 25 years, the Swedish punk act, completed by guitarist Erik Ohlsson and drummer Fredrik Larzon, have perfected their ever-evolving brand of melodic punk, but 'SOS' sees them stretching into new sonic and lyrical territory that further cements the group as being able to outlive trends and gimmicks. Their secret? Solid songwriting, inventive arrangements and lifelong friendships that are palpable in each note on the album. 'SOS' is the kind of album that will satiate the band's longtime fans while maintaining a broad appeal that's certain to bring new converts into the fold.

'SOS' was recorded at the band's own Soundlab Studios, in in Örebro, Sweden and mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios. It was produced by Sarcevic and Färm with all artwork and photography created by Ohlsson.

Millencolin have also announced their first 2019 festival appearances, including Slam Dunk Festival in the UK (as part of NOFX' Punk In Drublic line-up), Groezrock Festival in April, Austrian Nova Rock festival in June, and the German Mission Ready festival in July.

Pre orders for 'SOS' are available at: http://www.millencolin.com/

 While She Sleeps Release New Music Video.

While She SleepsMonday 18th February 2019
WHILE SHE SLEEPS have released another cinematic music video in anticipation of their forthcoming album 'SO WHAT?' dropping. This one is for the Sheffield band's new single, the multi-genre-spanning 'THE GUILTY PARTY', and it was filmed on a series of locations during their recent tour of Asia. The clip follows equally stunning self-produced music videos for 'ANTI-SOCIAL', the first single from 'SO WHAT?', and further album track 'HAUNT ME'.

While She Sleeps are currently on a headline tour of Europe, which will culminate at The Roundhouse the same day the album is released, 1st March via Sleeps Brothers in conjunction with iconic metal label Spinefarm Records. Sleeps' last album was the Top Ten self-released 2017 triumph 'You Are We'.

The band were also announced on for All Points East on the Bring Me The Horizon curated day 31st May, on a stellar line-up which also features Idles, Run The Jewels and Architects, amongst other gems.

Tickets on general sale from Friday 15th February at 10am GMT at: http://www.livenation.co.uk
By whatever measure you care to use, BURY TOMORROW are among modern British metal's upper echelon. Long since established as one of the UK's most successful heavy exports, the Hampshire quintet has performed on main stages at virtually every major European festival you could care to name, racked up millions of YouTube views, scored three top 40 UK albums and sold tens of thousands of tickets to their incendiary live shows in the process. Shows which combine a passion, precision and uncompromising aggression that has become both a trademark and a badge of honour.
They have achieved all of this and much more not by following trends or jumping from bandwagon to bandwagon — but rather by sharpening to a diamond-cut point their brand of punishing, yet effortlessly melodic heaviness. The music speaks of a character that few bands of any genre could hope to match.
Indeed, it is this character, this unwavering spirit, that has earned them one of the most rabidly dedicated, dye-in-the-wool fanbases in the whole of rock music. A fanbase which has seen the band grow steadily across five pulverising records of unerring quality and ever-expanding ambition.

 Dream Theatre Release New Music Video.

Dream TheatreFriday 8th February 2019
There is a palpable excitement surrounding two-time Grammy-nominated and millions-selling progressive music titans, Dream Theater and their upcoming 14th studio album, 'Distance Over Time'. Following on from two recently released tracks, “Untethered Angel” and “Fall Into The Light” (both of which have received millions of plays already via YouTube and Spotify), the band returns with their first official single from their February 22nd release. “Paralyzed” is quintessential Dream Theater; a song that showcases the band’s unique ability to write memorable melodies backed with unique song structures and maestro-level musicianship. Wayne Joyner, who also imagined the clip for “Fall Into The Light”, created the animated video for the song. The video for “Paralyzed” can be seen here: https://youtu.be/C7m7l8iqGAk.
The song is an introspective reflection on the negative impact that being obstinate or single-minded can have on important relationships,” explains guitarist John Petrucci.

Distance Over Time showcases a newfound creativity for Dream Theater while maintaining the elements that have garnered them devoted fans around the globe. The album also marks the first for the band’s new label InsideOutMusic / Sony Music. The artwork was created by long-time cover collaborator Hugh Syme (Rush, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour). Distance Over Time was produced by John Petrucci, mixed by Ben Grosse and mastered by Tom Baker.

Pre-order various configurations at:

 PApa Roach Add Second London Show To Massive UK Tour.

Papa RoachFriday 8th February 2019
Papa Roach are set to play 12 dates in the UK as part of their Who Do You Trust world tour.  The London O2 Forum show on 17th April has now sold out and due to huge demand the band have added a second London show on 18th April. In addition to Nothing More, who are support for the whole tour, British rock band A have been added as special guests for this extra date.   Tickets go on sale Friday 8th February at 10 a.m. HERE.  

 Papa Roach have collaborated with the charity Young Minds for the 18th April,  https://youngminds.org.uk/ and £1 from each ticket will go to the charity.  There will be an option to donate more during the booking process. Young Minds are leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered whatever the challenges.

Always supporters of new upcoming bands, Papa Roach have also added Manchester's Hot Milk to the 17th April London show. 

Papa Roach released their tenth studio album last month.  Who Do You Trust? via Eleven Seven Music, is available to stream HERE (DIGI, CD and Vinyl).  Lauded as an "audacious triumph" by Rock Sound, and the Sunday Times who noted that "(Papa Roach) have broadened their sound to appeal to a new generation of rock fans", Who Do You Trustmarks a paradigm career shift. Rare is the band that holds their mettle, that take the time to grow, that use those moments when fame's fickle finger is pointing elsewhere to take risks and to try new things. Rarer still is the band that goes through this process and comes out the other end making the best music of their career, and ready to change the world's perception of them, and Papa Roach is exactly this band.

Check out the soaring pop of latest single "NOT THE ONLY ONE".

Papa Roach have just finished a headline stint on Shiprocked and join Shinedown and Asking Alexandria on the 2019 North American leg of the Attention! Attention! World Tour later this month. For VIP packages and more information, visit www.paparoach.com.

 Frank Turner To Headline Camden Rocks.

Camden RocksFriday 8th February 2019
"Camden Rocks is where you can enjoy more than 200 bands - as long as you don't mind skipping between more than 20 venues. We're talking decent music... Quality and Quantity" Metro

"Camden remains at the heart of where generations of new music gets its start and I'm proud to be a part of that tradition." Billy Bragg

""It's great to see punters and bands from all genres come together to celebrate the best of live music. The energy across the day is electric and does Camden's rock and roll heritage proud". Chris McCormack, Camden Rocks Festival Organiser

After launching its 2019 edition with a hugely impressive list of bands in late 2018, Camden Rocks Festival announces today the Saturday headliner: Frank Turner. Alongside the acclaimed, multi-talented punk and folk singer songwriter, Camden Rocks Festival is proud to introduce an additional 90 bands to the bill. These include legends such as American punk icon Richie Ramone, British alt-rock five piece The Wonder Stuff, London's own punk-rockers The Professionals alongside the cream of new talent such as indie-rock prodigies Eliza And The Bear, alt classic rock band The Dirty Thrills, noisey punk upstarts Queen Bee, the atmospheric indie rock of Gold Key and the all Japanese girl garage punk of Mutant Monsters.

The new additions to the Camden Rocks Festival 2019 join an already impressive list of talent from rock, indie, alternative, folk and punk music and its myriad of hybrids – a diverse list including the likes of Ash, Ratboy, New Model Army, Wheatus, Carl Barat, Ginger Wildheart, Milk Teeth, Pretty Vicious, Raging Speedhorn, Angelic Upstarts, The Virginmarys, The Last Internationale and many many more.
Not only does Camden Rocks Festival showcase the very best UK and international emerging talent alongside much love established acts but the event provides vital lifeblood to Camden's infrastructure of established music venues. In a time when music venues across the UK are closing, Camden's rich diversity of venues should be celebrated and cherished. As Frank Turner alludes to below, many of the UK's finest acts received their musical education in Camden Town – and this is not something any supporter of music should take for granted or let go to waste.

Frank Turner says: "I (mis) spent my youth getting the train to London and the tube to Camden as fast as I could, because I knew it was the epicentre of where I wanted to be in life. As an adult I've lived in and around Camden, and now I'm at the Camden Rocks Festival. It feels like exactly the right place for me to be, it feels like home. I can't wait."

Richie Ramone says: "We are very excited to return to Camden for the coolest festival in my favorite part of London. With all the history this area has to offer, as well as a great weekend of live music, why would you want to be anywhere else. This is one party not to be missed!" 

Miles Hunt from The Wonderstuff says: "It's been a very long time since we played such an intimate venue and are really looking forward to it."

The 5thFebruary 2019 Camden Rocks Festival announcement poster is available HERE

Taking place on Saturday 1stand Sunday 2ndJune 2019, the festival, now in its eighth year, is established as one of the must-see events in the UK musical calendar. Over 15,000 punters will have the opportunity to see over 400 bands in 20 venues across Camden, London, over two days. Camden Rocks Festival will host over 3,000 musicians over the weekend. Previous Camden Rocks read like a who's who of music – see HERE.

There are certain areas across the UK that are woven into the fabric of the countries musical DNA. Camden is one. A district of North West London that's been at the forefront of Rock N Roll and alternative culture for five decades. As venues close in many cities and towns around the UK, Camden remains a thriving hub of music and culture. So much so that there is talk of Camden receiving its own Hollywood Boulevard-style Walk of Fame in 2019.

The festival has prided itself in not only bringing some of the finest and best known and loved acts in the world but also in showcasing some of the brightest, freshest global talent. The day or weekend tickets will grant punters access to all the venues on a first come, first served basis, in addition to everything else Camden has to offer in terms of food, culture and shopping. Camden Rocks is a chance for the UK music scene to come together and celebrate everything that is great in this country. Just as the USA has SXSW, so the UK has Camden Rocks Festival. The festival sees fans travel from not only the UK, but all over the world.

 Children Of Bodom Release New Single 'This Road'.

Children Of BodomMonday 4th February 2019
Finland's melodic death superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM are set to release their tenth album, Hexed, on March 8, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band has unleashed the official lyric video for their new single 'The Road'. Watch and listen over on YouTube: youtu.be/qIsbxH7k4Sc

COB frontman, guitarist, and mastermind Alexi Laiho comments: "This Road was actually the last song I wrote but it ended up being the opening track and also one of the singles which makes me happy cos it's one of my faves. It's different from anything we've done since Follow the Reaper but it's still new. Check it out and you'll know what I mean."

Pre-order your copy of Hexed here: nblast.de/COBHexed

Limited Edition Mail Order Edition inc Reaper statue: nblast.de/HexedMailOrder

Watch the official music video for 'Under Grass And Clover': youtu.be/1gpfzCxiQ-A 

Hexed saw the return to Finland's Danger Johnny Studios where they were reunited with Mikko Karmila (I Worship Chaos, Halo Of Blood, Hatebreeder, Follow the Reaper & Hate Crew Deathroll) who recorded everything except keyboards and also produced the album with the band. Janne Wirman recorded keyboards at Beyond Abilities Studios. The album was mixed and mastered at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland.

For this album, the band enlisted Deins Forkas to create the album artwork. Bassist Henkka Blacksmith commented on the cover, "For some years already I have wanted to try a different approach with our cover art.  We are so used to digital art so that is really hard to do something else. Doing it all the way with a computer is somewhat safe and convenient. This time we all agreed to try it old school.  We found this cool dude and gave him simple instructions. The cover has to be purple and the reaper has to be central. Half a year later we got his work, and with a little tweaking, we have the cover of Hexed.  It is very different from what we are used to, even the Reaper looks different, but at the same time very spooky."

Hexed track list:
1. This Road
2. Under Grass and Clover
3. Glass Houses
4. Hecate's Nightmare
5. Kick in the Spleen
6. Platitudes and Barren Words
7. Hexed
8. Relapse (The Nature of My Crime)
9. Say Never Look Back
10. Soon Departed
11. Knuckleduster
12. I Worship Chaos (live)
13. Morrigan (live)

 Masked Intruder Announce Brand New Studio Album.

Masked IntruderTuesday 29th January 2019
Masked Intruder, the ski-mask clad, punk rock felons from Madison, Wisconsin have released new song 'Please Come Back To Me.' The track is taken off the recently announced upcoming album III, their third full-length and debut release on Pure Noise Records

You can listen to 'Please Come Back To Me' here
For the new album, the band – Intruder Blue, Intruder Green, Intruder Red and Intruder Yellow – recruited lead producer/engineer Roger Lima (who also plays bass in Less Than Jake) as well as co-producer Mike Kennerty (who plays guitar in some band called The All-American Rejects) and recorded the album at Lima's studio, The Moat House in Gainesville, Florida.
"Our songs aren't just about the feelings and situations that they describe but they're supposed to hopefully help other people think about and reflect about their own situations," Intruder Blue summarises. 
Whether it comes to stealing hearts or wallets, Masked Intruder have upped their game on Masked Intruder III and it seems as if even Officer Bradford can't hold them back, although we're sure he'll try.

 Rebellion Festival 2019 Is Shaping Up Nicely.

Rebellion FestivalTuesday 29th January 2019
We can debate endlessly about who, how and when punk rock started, but one thing is certain...it began with a shout of 1234! The starting gun and battle charge, the cry of 1234! has forever signalled the jolt of energy that keeps punk rock vital and alive, with the legendary Rebellion Festival keeping the torch burning brightest of all.

Returning again this summer over four days from the 1st to the 4th of August at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, Rebellion Festival, respected the world over for bringing together the best new and iconic punk and alternative bands every year, has already confirmed a line-up for 2019 that is as strong and eclectic as ever.

In terms of fabled rock bands, Rebellion Festival 2019 has got it covered and are extremely proud to be able to welcome Guildford rock legends The Stranglers, who headline the Empress Ballroom on the Friday night, appearing at the festival for the very first time, for what is bound to be an electrifying set.

Following their 2016 debut at the festival, Californian pop-punk innovators The Descendents return to headline on Thursday night, whilst Cock Sparrer get back to Blackpool after a three-year break to headline Saturday, following last year's acclaimed release of 'Forever', their first new studio album in ten years.

This leaves Scottish rockers The Skids, who absolutely smashed Rebellion when they played in 2017, and first-wave punk heroes The Damned, fresh from scoring their first Top 10 album ever in 2018 with 'Evil Spirits', to close the festival in style!

Elsewhere, across the multiple stages and four days, a feast of alternative, punk and hardcore bands, both new and established, from every corner of the globe, are flocking to the festival. Highlights include obnoxious LA punks Fear, appearing in the UK for the very first time since their formation in 1977, Portland hardcore heroes Poison Idea, returning to the play the UK one last time. H.R. from hugely influential Washington DC Rastafarian punks Bad Brains is confirmed to play a solo set, whilst DOA, The Dwarves, The Freeze, Dr Know, The Casualties and more will keep US hardcore fans energised.

These join a smorgasbord of punk rock talent from these shores, including Angelic Upstarts, UK Subs, Ruts DC, Spear Of Destiny, Penetration, Conflict, The Professionals, Cockney Rejects, TV Smith & The Bored Teenagers Play The Adverts, Subhumans, Vice Squad and many more. These combined with the best in new up and coming alternative bands such as Queen Zee, Maid Of Ace, Pears, Bar Stool Preachers, Pizzatramp, and Hands Off Gretel, look set to make Rebellion Festival 2019 one of the best yet!

Are you ready? 1224!

 The Rasmus Announce Special UK Tour.

The RasmusTuesday 29th January 2019
The album Dead Letters was a milestone for The Rasmus. They had already released four albums in Finland before the age of 21, and had reached platinum album sales and played sold out arenas in their home country. But their fifth full-length outing, Dead Letters, including the world wide smash hit In The Shadows, propelled The Rasmus to fame and stardom all over the world. Now, a little more than 15 years after the album was released, The Rasmus will play it from start to finish in a series of concerts in Europe, late September through early November 2019. Tickets go on general sale on Friday 01 February 2019 at 9am at LiveNation.co.uk.

The singer, Lauri Ylönen, explains: "Dead Letters is the most important album in the history of The Rasmus. At the time of the release in 2003 we had already existed almost ten years and were on the threshold of adulthood as a band. With self-confidence and curiosity, the fear of the future defined our new style and identity for good. We want to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this album by diving back into that dark world and playing it live from start to finish."

Lauri continues: "We are super excited about this. The album is very theatrical and has strong imagery. We want to bring that visual world to the live performances. Some of the songs will have their first live premier in the Fall of 2019!"

Dead Letters will be re-released on CD and LP in a special Fan Edition on June 6th.

UK Tour Dates:

07 Oct 2019            Manchester, U.K.                O2 Ritz

They'll be in good company with UK upstarts Conjurer whose amalgamation of sludge, hardcore and black metal have labelled them as massive ones-to-watch. Also added are the ominous Swedish outfit Batushka and Ne Obliviscaris who'll usher in a new era in extreme music to Donington.

Ascending pop punk rockers Trash Boat have been pummelling the road as one of the leading, forward-thinking bands in the scene and the quintet's claim to the throne is on the horizon. Rock radio mainstays Three Days Grace are on hand to deliver a powerful performance, as are Godsmack with choruses so anthemic they grant no immunity, alongside Bad Wolves whose viral cover of 'Zombie' by The Cranberries shot them into the spotlight in 2018.

>For those who like their metal delivered with laser-like precision, Animals as Leaders will astound with their technical virtuosity. Heart Of A Coward return to lay waste to the fields of Donington with new vocalist Kaan Tasan. They are joined by tech metal instrumentalists Intervals and UK prog metallers Toska, who have quickly become an exciting force in the ever-growing scene. Newcastle post-hardcore band GroundCulture have been grafting away, building a fierce reputation ready to take on Download, and forward-thinking nu-metal act Cane Hill are also confirmed, whose visceral approach has helped reignite the genre.

Download 2019 will be a truly international affair with the addition of Reputable party thrash heroes Municipal Waste, French post metal/shoegaze Alcest, and Sumo Cyco who have made waves with their fusion of rhythm and dancehall hooks and metal riffs. Flying the flag for Japan are all female power metal stars Love Bites as well as Japanese metalcore titans Crystal Lake. Australian natives Redhook, and Twelve Foot Ninja will also be making the long trip to get the mosh pits started, while Representing New Zealand are hard rockers Like A Storm.

Electronic-infused industrial duo SKYND are ready to make things dark, creepy and sanguine all at once. Bridgend five piece Those Damn Crows are purveyors of melodic, in-your-face and exhilarating hard rock. Icon For Hire have been breaking down boundaries worldwide and are ready to stamp their mark on their Download debut. Up next are pop-punk new comers Lost In Stereo, Manchester's hottest new band Parting Gift, and last but not least are melodic rockers Vega.

Download Festival is the home of rock music and takes place on the sacred grounds of Donington Park, which has been associated with rock since the eighties.

 Forever Still Announce New Studio Album

Forever StillTuesday 29th January 2019
Megacorporations owning our governments, the world on the verge of ecological collapse - is this 2019?
When Philip K. Dick wrote what would later become Blade Runner set in 2019, no one would have believed that the dystopian cyberpunk future he imagined would be so similar to the world we live in today...

This realisation is what sparked the idea for the new album from FOREVER STILL»Breathe In Colours«, which will be released via Nuclear Blast on March 29th.
With their sophomore full-length album, the band has evolved their songwriting skills even further and didn't want to produce a plain copy of its predecessor »Tied Down«, released in 2016. Instead, the new album drifts both into more epic moments like on the captivating opener 'Rewind' or 'Embrace The Tide', while frontwoman Maja Shining also delivers her heaviest screams to date on the groovy 'Survive' or their emotional declaration of war, 'Fight!'. And for the first time, the songwriter duo of singer Maja and multi-instrumentalist Mikkel Haastrup has decided to make the album a more collaborative effort and therefore brought their long time live drummer, Rune Frisch, into the studio with them to record the drums - a big step for the two young musicians who handled everything on their own on the previous record, from music videos to band photos, the album production and even concert booking.

Maja's lyrics are still as personal as they used to be, however for »Breathe In Colours«, the band decided to work with a futuristic and dystopian theme, as she explains: "Instead of looking in, we turned our focus to the world and saw it in a state of change. It somehow reminded us of the dystopian cyberpunk future, we'd seen in books and movies when we were kids, where megacorporations own our governments, the world is on the verge of ecological collapse and humanity is fleeing into cyberspace building walls around themselves and closing their eyes to the horrors of the real world. This, and the fact that two of the most influential cyberpunk works of all time, Blade Runner and Akira, are set in 2019, is what gave us the initial idea for the album and its more electronic and raw sound."

On their social media, FOREVER STILL have already revealed some initial info on the new album hidden in binary code language, and the explanation behind the cover artwork of »Breathe In Colours« - still designed by Maja herself - is just as fascinating:
"At first glance the cover art appears quite dark and gloomy, but in reality it's bursting with colour. Just like the real world - sometimes we just have to look really closely to actually see it. The many numbers behind me represent all the colours in the world in binary code - more commonly known as 'computer language' and is at the same time a reference to the world becoming so digital and people escaping into their computers to find colours instead of living in the real world and finding them there."

Today, the Danish modern rock outfit unveils its first music video off the new album. Watch 'Rewind', here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--CQeGZvo9M
Download or stream the new track here: nuclearblast.com/foreverstill-bic

SevendustMonday 29th January 2019

Dan Sturge, known for his work with Alter Bridge, directed the clip. The video can be seen here: https://youtu.be/VkVvLyb75mU.

Released in May 2018, ‘All I See Is War’ picked up notable critical acclaim, with Rock Sound stating, "impeccably slick... the quality of these songs remains undeniable." Kerrang! added, "a surprisingly contemporary return," praising frontman Lajon Witherspoon as "the velvet-throated singer sounding every bit as impressive as he did at the turn of the millennium." Total Guitar lauded the band for "consistently strong albums, packing heavy hooks, soulful vocal harmonies, and inventive rhythms,” while Classic Rock commented, “the Atlanta band’s best album in years… a solidly emphatic musical statement.” Powerplay declared it a "masterpiece of sound... emphasising the band's artistry to its full potential." Upset and Metal Hammer championed SEVENDUST’s stalwart history; Upset complimenting, “Twelve albums in, they still know how to rock,” with Metal Hammer praising the band's "enduring appeal."

Last month, Sevendust wrapped up a successful tour of the UK and closed out 2018 with 3 hometown shows in Atlanta.

 Bouncing Souls Announce UK Tour And New EP.

The Bouncing SoulsTuesday 29th January 2019
The Bouncing Souls are celebrating their 30th year as a band. In honour of the anniversary, the band has announced the release of Crucial Moments, a brand new six-song EP and accompanying book, out 15th March from Rise Records. The Bouncing Souls are sharing the title track and its music video, an anthemic ode to three decades of great music and great friendships.

Watch the "Crucial Moments" music video here
Preorder the Crucial Moments EP and book:
Recorded by Will Yip, Crucial Moments captures the sound of a band who are still completely in love with what they do after all these years. The four-piece — vocalist Greg Attonito, guitarist Pete Steinkopf and bassist Bryan Kienlen, who started the band in 1989, and were joined by drummer George Rebelo in 2013 — aren't ones to rest on their laurels, as Crucial Moments is a wholehearted, fully-realized addition to The Bouncing Soulscanon. The EP offers the winning familiarity of the band's most defining traits bolstered by a long career's worth of songwriting expertise. 

If the Crucial Moments EP shows where The Bouncing Souls are now, the book is a look back at where they've been. The collection contains photos, memorabilia, and stories from friends and fans to trace the band's incredible career and its impact on the people around them. As Attonio puts it, "We've made bonds with people around the world that you'd never imagine or dream of when you're a 17 year old kid from New Jersey in the '80s. I'm so grateful that I've been through that journey and for what I've learned, and what I've been able to get for my heart and to give, too. I don't know how I can imagine my life being more gratifying than that."

The Bouncing Souls will be spending their 30th anniversary with fans all around the world, having also just announced a massive run of US, UK, and EU tour dates throughout 2019

 Eluveitie Announce UK Tour With Lacuna Coil.

EluveitieTuesday 29th January 2019
We all wade through archetypes. We all ARE archetypes. Distant echoes of a life both primeval and noble. To embrace these archetypes, to accept them not only as a part of life but as life itself is what some may call enlightenment, some peace of mind. ELUVEITIE call it »Ategnatos«. And by using their longest gap between two Metal albums to gather momentum, they just forged their strongest album around it.  »Ategnatos« will be released on April 5th 2019 via Nuclear Blast.

Today, the band revealed the stunning new album cover. This impressive artwork was created again by Travis Smith.

The band states:
"'Ategnatos' probably became our most organic album by all accounts. It is the result of a thoroughly intuitive process, where we gave creativity full scope. And during this process quite some back-to-the-roots developments emerged in diverse aspects. Many a riff off 'Ategnatos' reminds on the guitar work on 'Slania'. Following our gut feeling we brought the mixing duties back to Jens Bogren's Fascination Street studios, where our Nuclear Blast debut was produced. And regarding the album artwork it soon became very clear to us, that we'd love to work with the fabulous Travis Smith (www.seempieces.com) again, who already created the front covers of our albums 'Spirit' (14 years ago!) and 'Everything remains as it never was'.
And we're honestly excited with the result! The frontcover shows spectacular scenery in central Switzerland, a so-called 'vulva cave', as it was sought to mark sacred rites of fertility and celebrations of life in ancient times! The artwork mystically and beautifully expresses the 'Ategnatos'' very core and essence!
Once again it was a pleasure to work with Travis!"

And together with the revealing of the first album details , Swiss folk metal leaders ELUVEITIE also announce their European tour in support of this upcoming masterpiece.

ELUVEITIE will join forces with the legendary metal-act LACUNA COIL from Italy and the nu-metal-newcomcers INFECTED RAIN from Moldavia.

ELUVEITIE states:
"Our last few months have been extremely intense, creating 'Ategnatos'. Now we simply cannot wait to bring our new songs to the stages and to share our passion, pure fucking metal and heartfelt Celtic mysticism with you all! And all the more we're excited to bring such great bands with us! We feel honoured to team up with our fellows of the heavyweight institution called LACUNA COIL and also with the amazing wizkid that is INFECTED RAIN, whom we've shared festival stages with a few times already!"

LACUNA COIL adds:
"Transformation is a process and as life happens you need tons of new music!
That's why we are really excited to team up with ELUVEITIE and our buddies in INFECTED RAIN for this fantastic tour package. The bill is pretty diverse and interesting and we can't wait to bring it around Europe. We will play some of our classic songs and introduce some new tunes!
We know this tour is going to be rocking, and we know the fans are going to enjoy this as much as we are!"

Lena from INFECTED RAIN comments:
"2019 appears to be very promising for Infected Rain! A lot of new releases, new relationships and new places to visit. We are excited about all of this and especially about the Autumn tour that is going to end the year so perfectly. We are going to support two great bands and amazing people on tour for more than forty shows around Europe. We are honored to share the stage with Eluveitie and Lacuna Coil."

 Teenage Bottlerocket 'Stay Rad'.

Teenage BottlerocketMonday 21st January 2019
The day has finally come! We could not be more stoked to share with you a brand new Teenage Bottlerocket song. Head to Spotify and listen to “I Wanna Be a Dog,” your first taste from TBR’s ripping new full-length, Stay Rad! Recorded at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, produced by longtime collaborator Andrew Berlin, and mixed by Jason Livermore, the band’s eighth studio album will be released on March 15th. 

Digital pre-orders are also available today and come with the added bonus of ONE “instant grat” track. Head to BandcampiTunes, and most other digital stores to get it. Then, be sure to catch TBR playing all their hits live on tour. A full listing of dates can be found below and more information on tickets can be found here!
Let’s be honest. Teenage Bottlerocket has always been rad. Formed in Wyoming in 2000, they were rad when they released their debut album, Another Way, in 2003 and almost two decades – as the title of this eighth studio album suggests – they remain just as rad. Following on from 2017’s Stealing The Covers – which, funnily enough, was a record of cover versions ­– these 14 short, snappy and stylish punk songs are centered around the songwriting chops of guitarists/vocalists Ray Carlisle and Kody Templeman and overflow with Teenage Bottlerocket’s typical mix of humor and poignancy, silliness and melancholy.  But it’s also the first album of original material that the band – completed by bassist Miguel Chen and drummer Darren Chewka – made following the death of former drummer and Ray’s twin brother Brandon in 2015.

“I'm definitely proud of it,” says Ray. “It's cool how we all came together through something so tragic and made one of our best records. I think Brandon would really love it. Stealing The Covers really helped us get back on our feet and it was a cool in-between, but this record was something we wanted to make as excellent as possible.”
“I think we all had him in the back of our minds while writing and recording it,” adds Kody. “I’d like to think that he would be happy with how it turned out.”

Recorded at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Stay Rad! – which will be released on March 15 – was produced and mixed by longtime collaborator Andrew Berlin and mixed by Jason Livermore. And in keeping with its title, it finds the band channeling the same riotous energy it had at the start. Its members might be older now, some married and with kids, but when it comes to writing songs together as Teenage Bottlerocket, absolutely nothing has changed. “We’re doing what we’ve always done,” says Kody, “which is writing fun songs and having a good time. It doesn’t feel any different than it did when we started.”

Not only that, but their infectious youthful enthusiasm has remained full and intact. “That’s just something we've always held on to,” says Ray. “I think it's pretty obvious whenever you see a band that looks like they've clocked in, like they're at their job right now. We've never really looked at it that way. There's always been a degree of excitement that's encapsulated us before we've gone onstage and it’s the same in the studio. We wanted to make something that our fans would love and we would love and Brandon would love, too.”

While “I Never Knew”, which was written by Miguel, is the only song on the record about a girl – “That’s weird,” laughs Ray. “We must have grown up a little, because we don't write about girls as much and when we do think about them it's positive thoughts!” – it’s still a quintessential  Teenage Bottlerocket album. “Creature From The Black Metal Lagoon” charts the story of Norwegian black metal while also ripping on metal band du jour Deafheaven, “Night of The Knuckleheads” turns a Friday night out into a Misfits-esque horror story and “The First Time That I Did Acid Was The Last Time That I Did Acid” is an all-too-real cautionary tale about a bad trip. Elsewhere, “I Want To Kill Clint Carlin” is an affectionate yet homicidal ode to the band’s longtime roadie full of black humor, “Everything To Me” is Ray’s touching but hilarious tribute to his son, and “Stupid Song” is a not-so-stupid song about the drudgery of day-to-day life and using music to escape it. That song was written at the last minute, as was penultimate track “Little Kid”, a poignant ode that Ray wrote about his brother that charts the joys of their childhood together while also lamenting his loss. 

Originally, Ray wanted to call this record The White Album – a nod to both The Beatles and Weezer – but when Kody remembered a phrase on the hat a former roadie would always wear, it just made sense. That’s because, like every Teenage Bottlerocket record, Stay Rad!  has a good mix of the silly and the sad, but the overriding sentiment is one that echoes its title. It’s a reminder that, despite all the things that can and often do go wrong, being alive is something that should be enjoyed and that there’s always some sort of hope for the future. “Life will throw its stones at you,” says Ray, “and sometimes it's hard to keep your head up and be yourself. I've always thought the most important thing was having something to look forward to. And right now, I’m looking forward to this record coming out and playing some shows and playing these songs live. That's always the important thing – the next thing on the horizon.”

One of the next things on the horizon is a short tour of the US that starts at the end of March before they head to Europe in the second half of April. And as for their hopes for this record? Well, they’re both modest and ridiculous, down-to-earth and sky-high, hilarious and serious. But then, what else would you expect? “I hope that people check it out,” says Ray. “You're always going to have fans that are like ‘I stopped listening to them after Total or whatever, but there are some who stuck with us the whole way and I think they're going to love this record. I hope that everybody gives it a chance.”

“I want to sell a bazillion copies and spend all the money on useless shit,” laughs Kody. “But really, we do this band because it’s fun and it’s what we’re good at. We’re all close friends and I couldn’t imagine why we would ever stop.”

 Inglorious Reveal New Line Up.

IngloriousMonday 21st January 2019
Inglorious are delighted to welcome three experienced musicians to the band: Danny Dela Cruz, Dan Stevens and Vinnie Colla. The new line-up sees charismatic frontman Nathan James on vocals, Danny Dela Cruz and Dan Stevens on guitars, Phil Beaver behind the drums and acclaimed Brazilian session musician Vinnie Colla on bass. 

Virtuoso guitarist Danny Dela Cruz says: "I first heard of Inglorious a few years ago on YouTube, doing a cover of 'Burn' by Deep Purple. I then got tickets to see The Winery Dogs in Birmingham who they were opening for... I was blown away by their performance and have been a fan ever since. Nathan has become one of my best friends over the years so to play alongside him every night on stage is definitely something to looking forward to. Since moving to London I've become great friends with Dan and Phil too, so to be in a band with these guys feels really natural. I'm so excited to not only play music I really love but to play it with such amazing musicians too!"

Acclaimed Brazilian session bassist Vinnie Colla says: "I'm really excited to be the bass player of Inglorious! That's an actual dream come true in my career and there was no better moment for this to happen than now! Since the first time I heard Inglorious it was love at first note and I'm sure this will be huge! I'm so proud and happy to share the stage with such great and talented musicians!"

Metalworks guitarist veteran Dan Stevens: "I've been a fan of Inglorious since the band formed and good friends with Nathan for almost as long. With another good friend Danny Dela Cruz also on board, it makes this venture even more exciting for me. I feel honoured to be welcomed into the Inglorious family and can't wait to get out there in Jan/Feb and prove what this new line up can do!"

Before embarking on a full UK tour in January and February 2019 and bringing incredible performances to venues across the country, the new Inglorious line-up will appear in full at in-store signing sessions in London, Reading and then Cardiff. 

Inglorious is set to release the third studio album "Ride To Nowhere" on January 25th2019, via Frontiers Music Ltd. "Ride To Nowhere" is a much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies.

"This album is different in many ways.The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses..." – Nathan James
From the body blow riffs of the first single "Where Are You Now?", to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of "I Don't Know You," from the assault of "Freak Show" to the acoustic ballad "Glory Days", "Ride to Nowhere" is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70's, but also offering the band's own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious "II", the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith).


Album track listing is as follows
 

  1. Where Are You Now?
  2. Freak Show
  3. Never Alone
  4. Tomorrow
  5. Queen
  6. Liar
  7. Time To Go
  8. I Don't Know
  9. While She Sleeps
  10. Ride To Nowhere
  11. Glory Days
 
The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD + T-shirt "L" size), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl - exclusive to Frontiers online shop, Limited Edition White Vinyl - exclusive to the Inglorious online shop
 Highrise Release New Single.

HighriseMonday 21st January 2019
High Rise are excited to share their killer new single 'My Solitude, Your Hope' taken from their forthcoming EP 'Endeavours' set for release March 29th 2019.

Listen to 'My Solitude, Your Hope'  HERE

'Endeavours' was engineered, mixed and mastered by Oz Craggs (Feed The Rhino, NECK DEEP, Mallory Knox) at Hidden Track Studios in Folkstone, Kent. Hi-octane, impassioned and blistering with huge choruses; 'Endeavours' sees the band meticulously sharpen their songwriting blade and hone their abilities to combine pulverising, breakneck riffs with life-affirming, anthemic vocal melodies cut with venomous screams.

"This EP is a journey and a reflection on our cultural surroundings. Each song reflects the struggles we face in day to day life, whether that be losing someone close to you or seeing alcohol or substance abuse as a means to escape reality. The name 'Endeavours' came from the thought that no one's journey is ever quite over and through our struggles to succeed, we forget to appreciate the more important things around us."

High Rise is a five-piece metal band from South West London, came together in 2014 through their mutual love of Hardcore. (For fans of Underoath, The Ghost Inside and A Day to Remember) .Following on from the success of their 2015 debut EP 'Tides Will Take You', and their subsequent release 'Left It For Everything' in 2016, recorded with Dan Kerr at Avenue Studios (Our Hollow Our Home, Shields, Create to Inspire), The band have shared stages with a host of artists including Bad Omens, Our Hollow, Our Home, Create to Inspire, as well as playing at Teddy Rocks Festival.
Be sure to catch them live soon. 

 Papa Roach Stream New Album 'Who Do You Trust?'.

Papa RoachTuesday 15th January 2019
Papa Roach release their tenth studio album today. Who Do You Trust? via Eleven Seven Music, is available to stream now HERE (DIGI, CD and Vinyl).

Who Do You Trust? marks a paradigm career shift, redefining them and translating their sound to an entirely new audience, without losing their loyal fan base. "We wanted a new chapter in our career. We wanted to carve a new path, be 'Papa Roach,' true to form," says singer Jacoby Shaddix.

The figures tell their own story. Papa Roach are a rare breed. Time, as ever, is the real test. Sure, you might have hits early on in your career, but what do you do when the spotlight moves to someone else, when your initial heat cools off? Many are mistaken when defining the game of rock as a sprint rather than a marathon. Many lose their nerve, flail blindly and change their sound to whatever's cool this week. Many retreat by default into their catalogue and continue touring as "heritage" acts or museum pieces performing to an ever-decreasing fanbase. Rare, however, is the band that holds their mettle, that take the time to grow, that use those moments when fame's fickle finger is pointing elsewhere to take risks and to try new things. Rarer still is the band that goes through this process and comes out the other end making the best music of their career, and ready to change the world's perception of them, and Papa Roach is exactly this band.
 
The 12-track anthemic album features heavy guitars and catchy hooks on title track "Who Do You Trust?", the exhilaratingly chaotic "Renegade Music," the soaring pop of "Not The Only One," and a return to frontman Jacoby Shaddix's MC roots on "Elevate,". The band enlisted the same production team as their critically acclaimed album, Crooked Teeth with Nick "Ras" Furlong and Colin Cunningham producing 11 songs, while Jason Evigan produced "Top Of The World."
Papa Roach will embark on a global trek for WDYT beginning with a short run of underplay  venues at six sold-out shows in their home state of California.
Following a headline stint on Shiprocked they join Shinedown and Asking Alexandria on the 2019 North American leg of the Attention! Attention! World Tour.  The band head to the UK in April (with Nothing More supporting) as well as playing some European festival dates.  Then it's back to the US for a headline tour.

 Fun Lovin Criminals Release New Album.

Fun Loving CriminalsMonday 21st January 2019
Multi-platinum New York trio Fun Lovin' Criminals release album 'Another Mimosa' today alongside visuals for lead single 'Daylight' Ft Rowetta & new track 'Hello Again'.  

Returning with new material for the first time since 2010, 'Another Mimosa' ​is released in the 20th anniversary year of their cult album 'Mimosa'.​ It's a variation on the theme of the 1999 album, which be​came a cult classic with Crims fans for featuring clever re-imaginings of classic covers, remixes and rarities.

"Another Mimosa is a continuation of a long tradition of the FLC paying homage to those great songwriters that we stand on the shoulders of," notes Huey, from our love of hip hop, to soul to jazz and rock we humbly offer our fans another taste of our unique cocktail."

Recorded in London's Gibson Studios with life-long "fourth member", the Grammy-award winning engineer Tim Latham (Hamilton soundtrack, A Tribe Called Quest, De le Soul, Lou Reed), 'Another Mimosa' is a collection of beautifully crafted, eclectic 'original covers'. From Tom Petty's 'Mary Janes Last Dance' switched up with HipHop beats and a classic Rock influence, to the raw blues of Freddie King's "Going Down'; Ice Cube's classic "You Know How We Do It" is made their own with Huey's smoky drawl and the grace of Neil Diamonds' "Hello Again" receives the FLC treatment. Alongside a high energy reworking of their own 'Love Unlimited' and 'Southside' and a brand new FLC track 'Sunset'; its an album that turns charms and intrigues.

The 'Another Mimosa' tour accompanies the album release, kicking off in Birmingham on the 31st January, and wrapping up in Leeds on the 31st March 2019. The UK leg of the tour will also see FLC travel to Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Nottingham, Southhampton, Norwich, Worthing, Oxford and London. Tickets for the Another Mimosa tour are available to purchase here

Still a mainstay on the festival circuit in UK and Europe, FLC are Europe's best-loved "cousins from New York", whip-smart story-tellers in smarter Saville Row suits who, through comically tall tales of living large in the neon metropolis, launched a career in music. They burst onto the music scene in 1996, gate crashing the euphoric Brit-pop party with unforgettable finesse. Heralded for their generat​ion defining blend of styles and effortless Lower East Side charm, FLC's refreshing cocktail of rock n' roll, funk, blues, soul, hip hop, jazz and latin, gave the Crims a unique timelessness that is still apparent three decades on. The Lower East side trio consists of frontman turned Sony Award winning BBC broadcaster Huey Morgan, his founding partner Brian 'Fast' Leiser on bass, trumpet, keys and samples and the groups longest-standing drummer Frank 'The Rhythm Master' Benbini.

 The Maine Announce New Studio Album.

The MaineMonday 21st January 2019
Over their twelve years together as a band, THE MAINE's sound has been labelled many different genres by outsiders - including pop, emo, and indie-rock to name a few. The one noticeable consistency is their passion and desire to keep creating and push the realms of what is possible further and further with each new milestone. And that's exactly what they aim to do by reinventing themselves with the release of their seventh studio album 'You Are Ok' , set to come out March 29th 2019. When asked about the new record, frontman John O'Callaghan states, "trying to describe sound without giving you anything to listen to is an awfully tough task, so sparing the particulars of sonics I can tell you that this record is risky. The risk lies in its urgency, its relentlessness, and its manic mood swings. Yet even inside all the taken chances there exists a familiarity that I think will be heard once you spin it".

Their last full-length self-released record, Lovely Little Lonely, that was released back in 2017, was laced with nuance and subtlety. Lovely Little Lonely premiered during its release in the Billboard Top 200 (#32) and charted in six countries on the iTunes charts (including holding a spot at #8 in the USA). idobi described their thoughts on the album with "when you have high expectations, it's easy to be let down, unless those expectations are placed on The Maine", which is certainly a sentiment the band hopes to hold true to You Are Ok. Back in 2017, Lovely Little Lonely was greeted with many positive reviews including from Alternative Press who said, "the result is an album that feels timeless, even on first impact. It's The Maine's best batch of songs since Pioneer, their catchiest material since Can'tStopWon'tStop and their most cohesive work to date". The band retired the record and bid farewell to fans in dramatic fashion, by hosting an official album funeral complete with a red casket, before stepping into the studio to work on record number seven.

Never ones to create the same sound twice, going into the studio last fall presented a new challenge for THE MAINE - albeit one they were eager to take. O'Callaghan says, "the most natural part that exists in our makeup is a shared reluctance to retrace our steps. YAO is the most ambitious we've ever been heading into a record and I truly believe we landed near the mark we set out to hit". When asked about the meaning behind the album's title, frontman John O'Callaghan mysteriously says, "well, are you?"

The first taste of the new album is available now in the form of single "Numb Without You" available digitally worldwide and in the visual form of a lyric video. Watch that - HERE

This weekend, the band takes to the stage for a headlining set at their very own music festival, 8123 Fest. The jam-packed weekend invites fans from around the world into their hometown of Phoenix. Outside of the festival itself, the band will be DJing at two sold out afterparties, performing a club show with a setlist of fan's most requested songs, hosting several volunteer events to give back to their community, running a pop up shop in the downtown core and offering all fans a free day-long meet and greet. 8123 Fest 2019 celebrates the ten year anniversary of their first full length album Can't Stop Won't Stop which they will perform live in its entirety for the first time at the festival. 8123 Fest features performances from Mayday Parade, We The Kings, Real Friends and many more and the festival is projected to sell out.

'You Are Ok' releases via 8123 on March 29th 2019. Fans can pre-order the record now, in digital form or via a physical bundle over on the band's website.

 Stereophonics To Play Westonbirt.

StereophonicsTuesday 15th January 2019
One of Britain’s best live bands, Stereophonics, have announced dates as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series promoted by the Forestry Commission.

Since their Best Newcomer Brit Award in 1998 in acknowledgment of their debut album, ‘Word Gets Around’, Stereophonics went on to become arguably the UK’s most popular rock band of the new millennium. Their ascendancy was driven by a succession of top ten hits such as ‘The Bartender and the Thief’, ‘Just Looking’, ‘Mr Writer’, ‘Have a Nice Day’ and ‘Dakota’ and No 1 albums ‘Performance and Cocktails’, ‘Just Enough Education to Perform’, ‘You Gotta Go There To Come Back’, and ‘Language. Sex. Violence. Other?’ Stereophonics continued their success with further gold and platinum records and released their 10th studio album, ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ in 2017. Throughout their career they have played at some of the biggest venues to fans across the globe, establishing a reputation as one of the best live rock bands around. Stereophonics’ Forest Live performances will feature material from across their extensive back catalogue.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series held every summer by Forestry Commission England in seven beautiful forests. Over 1.75 million people have attended a forest gig in the last eighteen years. Money raised from ticket sales helps to look after the nation’s forests sustainably, for people to enjoy and wildlife to thrive.

Stereophonics + guests

 Whitechapel Announce Their Seventh Studio Album.

WhitechapelTuesday 15th January 2019
On March 29th, Whitechapel will release their seventh full-length, 'The Valley', via Metal Blade Records. Mixed by David Castillo, mastered by Ted Jensen, and produced once again by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder), 'The Valley' is a reference to the part of Hardin Valley (west of Knoxville, Tennessee) where vocalist Phil Bozeman grew up. Set against this backdrop, he approaches his subject matter unflinchingly, building upon everything that came before, making it clear that he has survived that which he was forced to endure and is not afraid to confront it.

"Phil has been upfront in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured in his life as a child, and I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that," says guitarist Alex Wade, who alongside his bandmates, stands 100% behind everything their vocalist has to say. "I feel our music is Phil's release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it, and hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it as well."

* exclusive bundles with shirts, plus digital options are also available! 

Anyone throwing 'The Valley' on for the first time will immediately recognise it as the work of Whitechapel, yet as has been the case with each release, there is also evolution in play. "Sound-wise, it's all over the place," Bozeman states plainly. "There's aggression, and then you're hit with ominous and emotional guitar riffs. It's mean, but then transfers to soft and inviting. It's a whirlwind of emotions throughout."

 'The Valley' track-listing:
1. When a Demon Defiles a Witch
2. Forgiveness Is Weakness
3. Brimstone
4. Hickory Creek
5. Black Bear
6. We Are One

 Dream Theatre Release New Single 'Fall Into The Light'.

Dream TheatreFriday 11th January 2019
Two-time Grammy-nominated and millions-selling progressive music titans Dream Theater have released another song from their recently announced 14th studio album, Distance Over Time. “Fall Into The Light” is the second new song from the album slated for worldwide release on February 22, 2019. The new song builds upon the excitement that the band created in December with the release of the first track from Distance Over Time, “Untethered Angel,”that has been viewed over 1.5 million times in 4 weeks since its release. “Fall Into The Light” is a riff-driven, epic musical experience that takes the listener on a 7-minute emotional journey, something Dream Theater does all too well.

Watch the video for “Fall Into The Light”:
https://youtu.be/JFxH4kky6z4
“‘Fall Into The Light’ is about the quest towards enlightenment that exists in life,” explains bassist John Myung. “It is more about the underlying themes of life’s journey and less about what happens once you get there. It is a song of introspection; about looking inside to find your individual happiness.” 

Distance Over Time showcases a newfound creativity for Dream Theater while maintaining the elements that have garnered them devoted fans around the globe. The album also marks the first for the band’s new label InsideOutMusic / Sony Music. The artwork was created by long-time cover collaborator Hugh Syme (Rush, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour). Distance Over Time was produced by John Petrucci, mixed by Ben Grosse and mastered by Tom Baker.

This is our 13th album, but every new piece of music we reveal still brings the same amount of excitement and surrealism that this is what we get to do. We can't wait to experience these songs live together with you for the first time, but in the meantime, thanks for listening and we hope you enjoy."

 Delain Announce New Single.

DelianFriday 11th January 2019
rock group DELAIN are pleased to share a brand new song and video. The dramatic, cinematic track 'Masters Of Destiny' is the first single from DELAIN’s upcoming live album + Blu-Ray, titled 'Hunter’s Moon'. It is one of four brand new studio tracks that are part of the stunning release, due out February 22nd via Napalm Records.

Filmed in Iceland, the single's epic video utilises the country's breathtaking landscapes to underline the mysticism of the song.

DELAIN comment, “This is an exciting release for us, and a special one too on account of the fact that we chose one of our more elaborate and unconventional compositions for our first single, showcasing another side of ourselves as a band. We wanted to make the video like an extension to the music; to match the orchestral, instrumental and vocal bombast of the song with visuals of nature in all its grandeur, and we found the perfect backdrop for this in beautiful Iceland. We are very proud to present to you the music video for our brand new track 'Masters Of Destiny'. We hope you enjoy the journey.“

'Hunter’s Moon' is a thrilling live album, accompanied by a live Blu-Ray from the band's sold out 'Danse Macabre' 2017 tour across Europe, which featured multiple guest musicians including Nightwish’s Marco Hietala. It is the final in the trilogy that started with their EP 'Lunar Prelude' and 2016-released full album 'Moonbathers'. Perfect for both old and new DELAIN fans, the release encapsulates their dazzling live show and stage production, as well as offering a taste of what's to come from their next studio album, also due out in 2019.

 August Burns Red Cover The Legend Of Zelda Theme Song.

August Burns RedFriday 11th January 2019
August Burns Red reveal the band's guitar playthrough cover of the The Legend of Zelda theme song. Watch + listen here.

The song is available at all DSPs and will appear on the Grammy-nominated band's Phantom Sessions EP, out February 8 via Fearless Records.

"For the cover, I wanted to do a mash-up of not only the original theme, but other pieces from the game as well, and since the dungeon theme flirts with the diminished scale, it just made sense to put it into a metal cover," bassist Dustin Davidson, who conceived and executed the guitar playthrough, explained. "It was a lot of fun to write and record and I look forward to playing it on future tours!"

"Out of all of the games that I played growing up, I easily logged the most time into Zelda," he shared about his history with the iconic game. "My brother and I would come home from school, race to finish our homework, and fight over who got to play. But the thing was — we didn't just have to fight each other — our mom was also in on the battle. My mom introduced us to Zelda on the original Nintendo, but the first game that I remember playing and really enjoying was A Link to the Past on SNES. Our love for the game only grew over the years and I'll never forget the three of us watching and playing Ocarina of Time together on N64. Fast forward 20 years from Ocarina of Time's release date to today, and you'll find permanent ink not only on my skin, but on my brother's as well. The series played a big role in our upbringing and we both got tattoos showcasing our love for a game that the three of us bonded over."

 Massive Release New Video.

MassiveWFriday 11th January 2019
Aussie rock 'n' rollers MASSIVE are set to release their brand new video and single "Long Time Coming" on 11thJanuary 2019.

You can watch the video premiere here - https://bit.ly/2shemjZ

The track is the second single taken from the forthcoming record "Rebuild Destroy" due on 1stFebruary 2019, via Off Yer Rocka Recordings. "Long Time Coming" is quintessentially head-banging and foot-stomping rock 'n' roll: driven by solid guitar riffs, fueled by the energetic rhythmic section and tied together by Brad Marr's fiery vocals.

Front-man Brad Marr says: "There are some super fans of rock 'n' roll out there that support bands above and beyond. We have slept on so many strangers' floors or been fed a home cooked meal and we wanted thank those rock fans for all they do. We drove 500km while on a day off to the tiny coastal town called Evans Head. The mission was to play a house party for one of these super fans. This video clip is dedicated to everyone who has taken us into their home for a night".

The new album also marks the beginning of a 5-year deal with Off Yer Rocka Recordings.

HRH / Off Yer Rocka CEO Jonni Davis added: "People know what we do, we look for special talent from all around the globe, shine a light on it and amplify in all directions, Massive are no strangers to our live portfolio but we are honored to go on a joint crusade with this third album which will make your balls vibrate".

About the album Brad Marr says: "This is the album I think Massive were always meant to write, we had no pressure on us, we booked the recording time ourselves and just went in and laid down some high energy rock 'n' roll. We couldn't think of a better team to work with than the legends at HRH / Off Yer Rocka, who are some of the biggest supporters of rock and metal music out there."

Massive started back in 2012 with founding members Brad Marr and Ben Laguda having nothing better to do than tour the world playing rock 'n' roll. Two albums later and having toured with some of the best musicians in the world, the band are stronger and more determined than ever to get in a cramped van and smash it night after night. This is no frills dirty rock 'n' roll.

 The Xcerts Announce New EP 'Wildheart Dreaming' And UK Tour

The 4 track EP wraps up the campaign for their breakthrough album Hold On To Your Heart, which was praised by The Independent as, "a record of defiance, a celebration of life including all its pitfalls and a resolute middle finger to depressing thoughts and negative feelings."

The new EP includes 4 brand new tracks that were written during the "Hold On To Your Heart" sessions but held back for this EP. The first single from the EP You Mean Everything will be released on the 25th of January. Written as an ode to Murray's family and friends, the song took on a new meaning once complete.  "It turned into a song for all the people I've never met. For the ones who feel alone, without self worth, this song is for you.

 Cancer Bats Unleash New Single.

Cancer BatsWednesday 9th January 2019
Cancer Bats are charging into the new year with a brand-new track titled "Inside Out". Recorded during the same sessions that made their critically-acclaimed sixth studio album The Spark That Moves, the band opted to hold this song back, knowing its strength and unique presence could hold its own as a standalone release. Frontman Liam Cormier had this to say about the B-side, "Inside Out is such a gnarly beast of a song, that we all knew it would make for a rad track to release later and keep the vibe of The Spark That Moves going!" Listen to "Inside Out" on your preferred streaming service or pre-order the 7" HERE

Cancer Bats have also continued their all-encompassing campaign strategy by releasing a 12th music video for the new single. Filmed by close friend and videographer Sid Tang, the video for "Inside Out" is made up of footage taken from shows played throughout the world. Capturing the exciting, chaotic and energized Cancer Bats live show, from sweaty packed clubs to festival stages in China, to their triumphant return to Canada playing some of their largest crowds to date, this visual document offers new and old fans a taste of what's to come when witnessing a Bats show as they continue to blast across stages around the globe.

 Stiff Little Fingers Announce 14 Date UK Tour.

Stiff Little FingersWednesday 9th January 2019
Stiff Little Fingers are pleased to announce a 14-date headline tour in March 2019, including the traditional date in Glasgow's iconic venue Barrowland Ballroom on 17th March.
With a career spanning over more than 40th years, Stiff Little Fingers' live shows always become something special, a unique event that never disappoints and the annual spellbinding St. Patrick's day performance in Glasgow's Barrowland Ballroom keeps proving just that. Due to phenomenal demand in last couple of years a second Barrowland's show was added next year, on Saturday 16th March, to make a "St. Patrick's Day Weekend" and this has already sold out!

2019 Celebrates 40 years of the band's iconic debut album 'Inflammable Material'. Released Feb 2nd 1979, Inflammable Material features the legendary tracks 'Suspect Device' and 'Alternative Ulster'.

In recent years the band have played incredible live shows, including: two years of headline sold out hometown shows in Belfast's Custom House Square and London's Hyde Park Show with Green Day.

Formed in 1977 in Belfast Stiff Little Fingers were among some of the pioneers of punk rock. Joining ranks with the likes of The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Damned, Buzzcocks, and Undertones they brought in a new era of music. Their music was a culmination of their own experiences and the political strife they witnessed, growing up at the height of "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland, from this many notable songs forth came, including "Suspect Device" and "Alternative Ulster". These were the first of what became SLF's signature style: lyrics that meld the personal and political, music that combines the energy of punk with infectious hooks, and a delivery that rings of honesty and commitment. It's this raw edge that defines the band and their continued vulnerability is what makes their music so relatable – allowing them to draw back fans time and time again.

 Kill The Lights To Release Debut Single.

Kill The LightsWednesday 9th January 2019
Michael ‘Moose’ Thomas has seen it all. As a founding member of Welsh metal titans Bullet For My Valentine, he lived a rock’n’roll dream that few ever get to see with their own eyes – winning awards, selling millions of albums, touring with his idols, and playing numerous sold-out headline shows, becoming one of the biggest metal exports in UK history. After parting ways with the band he formed to focus on his family three years ago, 2019 sees the drum extraordinaire back where he belongs in international new band Kill The Lights.

“I’m super grateful and excited to be back. I can’t wait for everyone to hear this,” grins Moose, of the new project completed by singer James Clark [Throw The Fight], guitarists Jordan Whelan [Still Remains] and Travis Montgomery [Threat Signal], and bassist Davey Richmond [Glamour Of The Kill].

“When I parted company with the old band, musically I was just sitting around doing fuck all and realised I had worked too hard and come too far to turn around,” continues Moose. “I thought I’d get in touch with Jordan and sent him a text asking, ‘Got any riffs or what?!’ Before I knew it, he had sent me 30 or 40 songs. I was like, ‘Erm, okay!’ I couldn’t believe it.”

“I’m a hobby songwriter,” explains Jordan, “which means I’m writing every day, whether it’s for a band or not. I’ve known Moose since I was a 19 year-old kid. Funnily enough, his first tour in the States was opening up for my band, then he said we should jump on a tour with them through the UK – which ended up being the Kerrang! Tour of 2006. The chemistry was there right off the bat and I knew right away this could be something that takes over the world.”

Frontman James Clark joined after auditioning on a demo of what would become the group’s debut single, ‘The Faceless’. “We all want to do something fresh, and for me it was about exploring some of the throwback metal more like Maiden or Priest that I felt had gotten lost over the years, but in a new way, ” says the singer. ’The Faceless' is a song for those that have spent their lives in the shadows, never felt good enough, or just struggled to fit in or feel a part of something. The song is a message to the broken... it's time to be seen, it’s time to be heard. From darkness to light we are all the same - we are the faceless.”

The track was recorded in Blackpool with esteemed producer/mixer Colin Richardson [Slipknot, Trivium, Machine Head]. Directed by Video Ink, watch the official video for ‘The Faceless’ at: https://youtu.be/xZjXM08Deoc.

If you get the feeling Moose is making up for lost time, that’s partly because he’s learned just how loyal his fans have been over the downtime since his exit from the band he started as a 17 year-old at the height of their career. He’s kept his feet firmly on the ground and remains grateful for the unwavering support shown for his next creative venture.  “Fans didn’t have to stick around on my social media but they have,” appreciates the drummer. “People have stayed with me asking what’s happening next. Metalheads have always been amazingly loyal, there’s a real community out there. I definitely think this album will surprise everyone and it’s all guns blazing for 2019 – starting with our first single and video right now. All I’ve ever wanted to do is play heavy metal and that’s all I will continue to do.”

Merging contemporary metal with very classic British influences, Kill The Lights are a tornado of neck-snapping rhythms and skyscraper chorus hooks, determined to make 2019 their own. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon.

 You Me At Six To Headline 2000 Trees Festival.

2000 TreesWednesday 9th January 2019
Following on from its recent win in December 2018 as the Best Medium Sized Festival in the UK at the UK Festival Awards, 2000trees Festival returns. The three day music festival will take place on Thursday 11th July, Friday 12th July and Saturday 13th July at Upcote Farm near Cheltenham, and the first band announcement is here!

We have 33 bands to shout about and to start it all off, headlining the main stage on the Friday 12th July, on their first ever time playing, are the mighty You Me At Six.
Since forming as teenagers in Weybridge, Surrey, You Me At Six have notched up a list of considerable achievements. Four UK Gold Records, five Top Ten albums in the UK including Number One album 'Cavalier Youth', sold out UK headline arena tours, and an unparalleled 15 consecutive A-List singles on BBC Radio One. Not to mention also multiple sold-out US headline tours, a Number One rock song in the UK & Australia and Top Five Rock Radio track in North America in 'Room To Breathe'. Having sold over 65,000 tickets in the UK this year in support of new album 'VI' and the 10th anniversary of debut album 'Take Off Your Colours', You Me At Six are undoubted heavyweights in the live arena. Their recent headline tour was met with phenomenal demand, selling out four months in advance, and in just twenty minutes. As well as gracing the headliner slot at 2000trees Festival, 2019 will see the band take their live show to both Europe and North America.
From You Me At Six - "We're really looking forward to headlining 2000trees Festival this summer. We've heard many amazing things about the festival, in particular it's unrivalled atmosphere and location. The lineup is always superb, so it's going to be a pleasure to be a part of things this year. It's going to be a special show."
Joining You Me At Six will be the incredible Every Time I Die, who are performing at 2000trees Festival for the first time, AND will be performing 'Hot Damn' in full (along with some other bangers) as headliners on The Cave stage on Saturday. "Hot Damn! has always been the one that put us on people's radars and it was the one that was out the first time we came to the UK, so that's a nice little throwback." says singer Keith Buckley.   "When festivals are able to do something like this and get such a diverse lineup and secure a venue outdoors, it feels like something big. When you're going to one of these as a fan of music and your whole surroundings feel so much larger than life it makes you want to enjoy the music. It make you really open to hearing new bands. You're going to need these festivals, whether it's to feed a fanbase or to make one. So I think it's extremely important for the scene."

Sheffield's While She Sleeps will headline the Cave Stage on the Thursday. The band are on the verge of releasing their fourth album 'SO WHAT?' on March 1st, which is the follow up to 2017's Top Ten UK chart album 'You Are We'. Front man Loz confirming our suspicions about the set - "Last time we played the festival it was chaos. Expect nothing less this time around."

Returning festival hero Jamie Lenman will be doing something very different at 2000trees Festival this year. He will be curating, opening and closing his very own stage and mini festival, Lenmania 2, on the Axiom Stage on the Thursday - being the first act to be performing at this years event, on the Thursday early afternoon. Jamie will have a host of bands on the stage he (and 2000trees) loves, with more details being announced very soon about the full line up.
A bit from Jamie Lenman - "I'm super excited to be bringing back Lenmania with a new twist and 2000trees is the perfect place to do it - a festival within a festival! The lineup of bands we've put together is completely awesome, from old buddies to new discoveries and everything in between, and it's been great to get Trees' input so we can assemble the best bill possible. It's going to be immense!"

From a 2000trees Festival regular, to a HUGELY anticipated first timer, Frank Iero will be headlining the Axiom Stage on the Saturday with his band Frank Iero And The Future Violents in what is sure to be one of THE sets of the weekend. From Frank "I'm so excited to be playing 2000trees festival! i've heard so much about it from friends that played in the past but i've never had the pleasure personally. I'm looking forward to making some memories of my own next year."
ALL the bands being announced today are:
You Me At Six (Friday headliner) / Every Time I Die (playing "Hot Damn" + hits) / While She Sleeps / Frank Iero And The Future Violents / Therapy? / Comeback Kid / Jamie Lenman (headlining and curating Lenmania II) / Hands Like Houses / Single Mothers / Cavetown / Estrons / Martha / Milk Teeth / Puppy / Muncie Girls / GroundCulture / Higher Power / Loathe / Gouge Away / Nervus / Heavy Lungs / MØL / Indigo Lo / LICE / The Drew Thompson Foundation / Spielbergs / Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam / Imperial Leisure / Orchards / Frauds / Phoxjaw / Indoor Pets / False Advertising

From 2000trees Festival organiser and main man James Scarlett - "With 33 bands announced today there is a lot I'm excited about and I'd definitely like to point people in the direction of my new favourite band Gouge Away – they are absolutely incredible. Also a shout out is definitely needed for Every Time I Die who are playing their Hot Damn! album in full for the first (and probably only) time. As well as playing the album, they're also going to smash us with some of their hits, so this will be a very special set for sure. And last but not least, Jamie Lenman has agreed to bring Lenmania to 2000trees and will be taking over the Axiom Stage all day on the Thursday with a selection of his favourite acts. In fact, he'll be the very first act of the entire festival playing a special acoustic set and will also headline the stage with his full rock show. I can't wait!"

 Papa Roach Gear Up To Release Tenth Studio Album 'Who Do You Trust?'.

PApa RoachTuesday 8th January 2019
Papa Roach release their 10TH studio album, Who Do You Trust? on January 18th 2019 which marks a paradigm career shift, redefining them and translating their sound to an entirely new audience, without losing the loyal following they've already built up. 

Four tracks are streaming now: The exhilaratingly chaotic   "Renegade Music" , the soaring uplifting pop of   'Not The Only One'   and 'Elevate' and the first single "Who Do You Trust?"  the video of which has just passed  over 2.3 million views.

The album sees Papa Roach continuing to push their momentum with bona-fide rock anthems and fearsome hooks. Working again with producers Nicholas Furlong and Colin Brittain, the band have tapped into their earlier identities and spun them into a new sound that embraces both the anthemic, rousing rock band they have become, and the raw, ratty and unpredictable beasts they once were, mixing polish and precision with something more animal and inspired.
 
Papa Roach will be joining Shinedown and Asking Alexandria this month on the 2019 North American leg of the Attention! Attention! World Tour, followed by a UK tour in April, with Nothing More supporting.   For tickets, VIP packages and more information, visit www.paparoach.com.

 Masked Intruder Announce New Studio Album.

Masked IntruderTuesday 8th January 2019
Masked Intruder, the ski-mask clad, punk rock felons from Madison, Wisconsin have announced details surrounding their escape from prison and upcoming album III, their third full-length and debut release on Pure Noise Records. They have also released the first single and music video for "No Case", which can be seen here:  www.maskedintruderband.com 
For the new album, the band – Intruder Blue, Intruder Green, Intruder Red and Intruder Yellow – recruited lead producer/engineer Roger Lima (who also plays bass in Less Than Jake) as well as co-producer Mike Kennerty (who plays guitar in some band called The All-American Rejects) and recorded the album at Lima's studio, The Moat House in Gainesville, Florida.
"Our songs aren't just about the feelings and situations that they describe but they're supposed to hopefully help other people think about and reflect about their own situations," Intruder Blue summarises. 

Whether it comes to stealing hearts or wallets, Masked Intruder have upped their game on Masked Intruder III and it seems as if even Officer Bradford can't hold them back, although we're sure he'll try.
The band's most infectious album to date is now available for pre-order at www.maskedintruderband.com

"Cross Off" was recorded in April 2017 and written by Mark Morton, Chester Bennington, Jake Oni and producer Josh Wilbur. Morton recorded all guitars with Paolo Gregoletto and Alex Bent (Trivium) handling bass and drums. The composition of the song began between Morton, Wilbur and Oni before the three approached Bennington about singing vocals. Bennington loved the song and came to the studio with additional ideas and lyrics that, together with his unique and incredible vocal style, shaped the song to be what it is today.

Morton said his experience working on "Cross Off" with Bennington "was a very free flowing and natural process. We both really loved the song from its inception and everyone that worked on it put a lot of energy and emotion into it. I feel like you can really hear that in the track, and absolutely in Chester's performance."

Joining forces with WPP Records and Spinefarm Records on a worldwide basis, Morton will release the 10-track album that sees him further explore his creative drive for writing and collaboration. It arrives on March 1, 2019, but CD and vinyl pre-order and merch bundles are now available here.  

The full track listing, complete with the list of guest artists is below. The album was made alongside a dream team of highly respected musicians from a multitude of musical worlds; some friends and some who would never be expected to collaborate with metal genre leaders Lamb of God.

Morton had been writing some of this debut for years. "This album wasn't a concerted effort to start something outside Lamb of God," he explains. "Music is always in my head, and until I write and record it, it's stuck there. But once I record it, it's out. It's a catharsis, more for my own sanity." 
 
Singers on the album include Chester Bennington, Randy Blythe, Jacoby Shaddix, Myles Kennedy, Alissa White-Gluz, Mark Lanegan, Chuck Billy, Jake Oni, Josh Todd, Mark Morales, and Naeemah Maddox. Musically, Morton performs all guitars, with Roy Mayorga, David Ellefson, Ray Luzier, Paolo Gregoletto, Alex Bent, Mike Inez, Jean-Paul Gaster, Steve Gorman, Marc Ford, Yanni Papadopoulos and Chris Brooks rounding out the band.

A bit about 'Eye To Eye' from Steven Ansell of BLOOD RED SHOES - " 'Eye to Eye' was the first song where we really hit our stride in the writing of the album ('Get Tragic'), the first time it really fell into place experimenting in a garage in LA with synths and loops instead of guitar riffs. it started life as a jam which we chopped, spliced, slowed down, looped and chopped some more then gradually layered back up using electronics and voices. "

Founder of TRF, Tom Newton (29), wanted to help fundraise for the charity Teddy20 which was started by his parents to raise money for children and families fighting Cancer after the sad loss of his brother, Ted Newton, who was 10 years old when he lost his life to a rare bone Cancer.

The festival has raised over £250,000 with help from previous headliners which include: Feeder, Ash, Twin Atlantic, Modestep, Scouting For Girls, From The Jam, The Hoosiers, and Don Broco. In 2016, Tom Newton was awarded The Daily Mirror's Pride of Britain ITV Fundraiser of the Year in the Meridian West region and Fundraiser of the Year by the south's leading radio station Wave 105.

 While She Sleeps Release Music Video For 'Haunt Me'.

While She SleepsThursday 3rd January 2019
WHILE SHE SLEEPS have released a second blistering track from their forthcoming album 'SO WHAT?' 'HAUNT ME' is the follow up to instant anthem and lead single 'ANTI-SOCIAL', the video for which has already racked up over 1 million views, and it further proves that 'SO WHAT?' will be one of 2019's most pertinent and ambitious records. The music video the band have crafted for 'HAUNT ME' is indicative of their creativity and drive, with the narrative comprising thousands of photos in quick succession. While She Sleeps' fourth album will be released on 1st March via their own Sleeps Brothers label, in a landmark partnership with Spinefarm Records.

While She Sleeps are on a mission to reach every corner of the globe that's possible as soon as 2019 hits. They play Australia and all across Asia in January and then will kick off a headline European & UK tour in February, supported by Stray From The Path, Trash Boat & Landmvrks, which culminates at The Roundhouse in London on the day the album drops. European and US Festival dates will follow over spring and summer.

Having made a career out of confounding expectations, While She Sleeps' last album, 2017's 'You Are We,' was a testament to the power of self-belief and determination; crowdfunded and released on the band's own Sleeps Brothers label. It earned them award nominations from the likes of Metal Hammer and a Best Album win at the Heavy Music Awards, as well as landing them in the top ten of the UK album charts and the top 15 in Germany. The whole 'You Are We' era was a testament to Sleeps' fans and their integral role in the band.

"You Are We got us to this special position, and it's given us a platform," continues guitarist Sean Long. "For us, it's like, 'What can we do to really stick this in people's faces? What can we put out there that we're buzzing off?' I don't want to be following everyone else; I want people to follow us."

'SO WHAT?' TRACKLISTING:

  1. ANTI-SOCIAL

 The Darkness And The Zutons To Headline Teddy Rocks 2019.

Teddy RocksThursday 3rd January 2019
Teddy Rocks is thrilled to announce the two headline acts for Teddy Rocks 2019!  Saturday night headliners, The Darkness and Sunday Night headliners, The Zutons.  Over 50 more acts to be announced in the coming weeks!

Taking the headline slot on Saturday night, England's most distinctive, multiple award-winning, platinum-selling rock gods The Darkness released their debut album Permission To Land to overnight success in 2003, topping the UK charts, going 5x Platinum and selling over 1.5 million copies in the UK alone. It spawned a series of hit singles including 'I Believe In A Thing Called Love', 'Growing On Me', 'Get Your Hands Off My Woman' and 'Love Is Only A Feeling', clocking up three BRIT Awards, two Kerrang Awards and an Ivor Novello for 'Songwriters Of The Year' amongst many others. In the 15 years since they've released four more studio albums with 2017's 'Pinewood Smile' being greeted with the best reviews of their career and thrusting them straight back into the Top 10. (The band will also be performing their festive hit 'Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End)' on The Great British Bake Off Christmas Special on Channel 4 on Christmas Day).

Returning from an 8 year hiatus, Teddy Rocks welcomes Legendary Liverpool rock band, The Zutons as their Sunday Headliner.  The Zutons seminal album "Who Killed The Zutons" which spawned the hit singles 'Pressure Point', 'Remember Me', 'Confusion' and 'You Will You Won't', was first released in 2004 to critical acclaim, a Mercury Prize nomination, and went on to sell over 600,000 copies (Double Platinum) in the UK alone. The band recorded a further two albums, 'Tired of Hanging Around' (including their song 'Valerie', which has become one of the biggest songs of this millennium) and their last album 'You Can Do Anything' in 2008.


"This is our biggest line up yet! The Darkness and The Zutons have some of the biggest hits of our generation and being able to bring them to our small town is an honour. We are working harder than ever to keep growing the festival and to help make a positive impact on so many children's lives affected by Cancer. The more people that buy tickets for this event, the more good we can do for those who need it! Please come and join our fight and have the best time whilst doing so!" - Teddy Rocks Organiser, Tom Newton

 In Flames Announce New Album And UK Tour.

In FlamesThursday 3rd January 2019
Legendary Swedish melodic heavyweights IN FLAMES are thrilled to announce their thirteenth studio album, titled, I, The Mask that will be released on March 1st 2019 via Nuclear Blast (worldwide, excl. North America) and Eleven Seven Music (North America). Pre-orders for the album will begin on January 11th offering both 'I Am Above' (stream here) and '(This Is Our) House' (stream here) as instant downloads. The 12 track album reunites them with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Motörhead) who also produced 2016's Battles. Additionally, the album was mixed by Grammy award winner Chris Lord-Alge (Cheap Trick, Linkin Park) and mastered by Grammy mastering engineer Ted Jensen (Pantera, Eagles, Guns N' Roses).

The album artwork was created by artist Blake Armstrong and depicts a unique interpretation of the band's mascot, The Jesterhead. The story of the cover will be revealed via the full album artwork on March 1st, which coincides with each song on the album.

"This album is really a special one to us. Since our last record, Battles, we've established our own annual festival in Sweden and have been touring non-stop worldwide, creating an even stronger bond with our fans. You could say it was a big part of our inspiration for this album. It's been such a long journey that just keeps going and growing; We feel extremely thankful for that, and for the support that makes it possible. We dedicate our 13th album, I, The Mask to our fans who allow us to keep making music and playing it every night. IN JESTERHEADS WE TRUST." - Anders Fridén.

IN FLAMES are also proud to debut two killer tracks from I, The Mask - the superlative anthems 'I Am Above' and '(This Is Our) House.'  A poignant video for 'I Am Above' has also been revealed, which features famous Swedish actor Martin Wallström (Mr. Robot). The video takes place in a pitch black room with Martin who eerily lip syncs the metal ballad with expressive facial gestures that capture the song's emotion. Meanwhile, the lyric video for track '(This Is Our) House' features unseen footage from the band's first annual Swedish festival, Borgholm Brinner (Borgholm Is Burning).

Stream 'I Am Above' HERE, and '(This Is Our) House' HERE.

Watch/share the lyric video for '(This Is Our) House' here: https://youtu.be/ZoUgqwMX9oo

"I was very intrigued by doing something I've never done before and honoured getting the question from IN FLAMES. Also trying to portray a lively song in a dark room, sitting in front of a camera was challenging, but I felt strongly for the song and the lyrics, so that was a comfort."
Martin Wallström from Mr. Robot.
Additionally, IN FLAMES have announced their UK and Europe headline tour that kicks off on April 3rd in Glasgow concluding on April 18th in Zurich. Special Guests to be announced soon.

With twelve studio albums under their belt, countless successful tours around the globe playing with the likes of Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth and Deep Purple - with millions of records sold and a massive fan base worldwide, In Flames have proven to be an unstoppable force.

 This Wildlife Cover Architects 'Doomsday'.

This Wild LifeThursday 3rd January 2019
THIS WILD LIFE continue in their tradition of stellar acoustic YouTube covers with a re-imagining of Architects' 'Doomsday', which they've just released on their channel. When speaking on their motivation to cover the mammoth track with such a radically different sound to the original, Kevin Jordan of This Wild Life says "When Doomsday was released earlier this year it moved me both musically and lyrically. Underneath an onslaught of riffs and heaviness was this beautiful melody and devastating story of losing a loved one. It's always a challenge to make a song your own while maintaining its integrity, I hope we did this song justice."

The cover comes in the lead up to the duo's UK and European co-headline tour with William Ryan Key (formerly of Yellowcard) in January and February of 2019. This will be their first trip to these shores in over two years and a first chance to hear beautiful cuts from their recently released third album 'Petaluma' with the London show set in the picturesque Union Chapel. 'Petaluma' recently featured in Rock Sound's Best of 2018 Top 50 albums list.

This Wild Life spent their summer performing on the main stage on the whole of the final run of the iconic Vans Warped Tour in the US, bringing their giant sunflowers and sunshine-drenched acoustic stylings to the masses and they've recently been on tour Stateside supporting Mayday Parade.

 Children Of Bodom Announce New Album 'Hexed' Out March 2019.

Children Of BodomWednesday 28th November 2018
Finland's melodic death superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM are proud to the announce the release of their tenth album, Hexed, on March 8th 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records.

COB
frontman, guitarist, and mastermind Alexi Laiho comments, "People have said that this album is generally catchier. So I started thinking about that, perhaps the song structures are easier to grasp on initial listen. But there's some crazy shit in there, almost progressive or at least technical. There are certain melodies across the album that could have come from jazz songs, although they're completely metal with us, of course (laughs). "

"For me, it has always been very hard to describe our new music,' comments bassist Henkka Blacksmith.  "In a way it always feels familiar, but the new stuff also always surprises me. Here we have something that's very Bodom, but somehow we haven't done this kind of stuff, possibly ever. Then again, someone said that there's a somewhat similar vibe to what Follow the Reaper had. I don't know. Anyway, we had a really hard time choosing the songs for the videos, I guess that's a positive problem to have."

Hexed saw the return to Finland's Danger Johnny Studios where COB were reunited with Mikko Karmila (IWorship Chaos, Halo Of Blood, Hatebreeder, Follow the Reaper and Hate Crew Deathroll) who recorded everything except keyboards and also produced the album with the band. Janne Wirman recorded keyboards at Beyond Abilities Studios. The album was mixed and mastered at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland.

For this album, the band enlisted Deins Forkas to create the album artwork. Bassist Henkka Blacksmith commented on the cover, "For some years I've wanted to try a different approach with our cover art. We are so used to digital art, so it's really hard to do something else. Doing it completely with a computer is somewhat safe and convenient. This time we all agreed to try going old school.  We found this cool dude and gave him simple instructions - the cover has to be purple and the reaper has to be central. Half a year later we got his work, and with little tweaking, we now have the cover of Hexed.  It is very different from what we are used to, even the Reaper looks different, but at the same time very spooky. "

Hexed will be available for pre-order starting December 7th.

Below is the track listing for Hexed
1. The Road
2. Under Grass and Clover
3. Glass Houses
4. Hecate's Nightmare

We have met a few times and I am in awe of his whole vibe and massive musical legacy."

And now we are!!!! We are so excited to bring our show to more faces and ears and get to meet everyone around the world who wants to head bang with the women of rock!” Maria Brink concludes, “We have fallen in love with the UK and Europe and feel so blessed to be back again.

 Reaidng And Leeds Make 2019 Festival Announcement.

Reading FestivalWednesday 21st November 2018
Reading & Leeds Festivals today reveals Foo Fighters, Twenty One Pilots, The 1975 and Post Malone as its 2019 headliners - and just four of twenty-two names announced to play at Reading's famous Richfield Avenue and Leeds' legendary Bramham Park next August bank holiday weekend (23rd-25th). Tickets go on sale Friday 23rd November at 9am, available here.
Following up their sold out shows at the London Stadium (twice) and Manchester's Etihad, the world's biggest rock band, Foo Fighters, will make their triumphant return to headline Reading and Leeds in 2019. With nearly 30 million records sold, and fresh from packing out the world's biggest venues – Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee will bring their three-hour-plus rock marathon master class back to headlining Reading/Leeds, a tradition they began in 2002. Expect every one of the tens of thousands voices in attendance to be raised with every deafening chorus as Foo Fighters run through dozens of classics spanning their massive catalogue, from their 1995 debut through 2017's 'Concrete and Gold' which went to Number 1 in more than a dozen countries including the UK and US.

Grammy Award-Winning Twenty One Pilots (Ohioans Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun) will be bringing their incendiary live show to Reading and Leeds fresh off the back of their worldwide 'Bandito' tour and career-defining show's at London's Wembley Arena. The alternative, electro-rockers have inspired a global movement with their flair for dramatic spectacle and world conquering ambition. The duo, now in their 'Trench' album era of their career, have seen fans become super fans and set the bar high for a new generation and definition of pop and rock crossover stars.

Making their Main Stage headline debut are The 1975. The Manchester four piece have had a phenomenal rise to fame over the past few years, selling out shows across the world and releasing their critically acclaimed second album 'I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it', which debuted at Number 1 in the UK and the US. The album was also nominated for the Mercury Prize 'Album of the Year' and was the catalyst to their 2017 BRIT Award win for Best Group, sealing their status as international superstars. Their new album 'A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships' is out this month with the second in the two-part release planned for Summer 2019. Following a run of UK arena shows in January, Reading & Leeds will be another chance for their loyal legion of fans to see the band's now iconic live show. Following on from their landmark performance headlining the BBC Radio 1 Stage in 2016, this is set to be another milestone performance, cementing their status as one of the biggest and most exciting bands in the world.

Undoubtedly one of the hottest names in the world right now, Texan superstar Post Malone returns to headline Reading & Leeds on his second ever appearance. 'Posty' has been on an unprecedented trajectory of success, this year drawing some of the biggest crowds over the entire festival weekend and is now the first act since Nirvana to go from afternoon to top of the bill with a sophomore album in consecutive years. Since being catapulted into fame, the post-modern popstar has had hit after hit including the inescapable 'Better now', 'Psycho' and the aptly named 'Rockstar' and is ready to claim the headliner status.

Stockport's finest heroes of northern indie rock Blossoms are back with a bang, following their recently released album 'Cool Like You' which has been dominating the charts. The Amazons who hail from Reading itself have been riding a huge wave of success, with a swelling fanbase and critical acclaim they've graduated from ones to watch to festival favourites. They'll also be joined by The 1975 label mates Pale Waves who are set to get the crowd dancing with their glistening, wistful goth-pop following the outstanding critical success for their debut album 'My Mind Makes Noises'.

Having kicked off 2018 with the release of her 'Hurtin' Me' EP, award-winning dancehall crossover queen Stefflon Don joins the bill on her journey to becoming a worldwide star. The '16 Shots' hitmaker will showcase her signature style and fierce stage show when she heads to Reading and Leeds next summer, while Stateside rapper Juice WRLD will be making his UK festival debut, storming the stage with breakout hits 'All Girls Are the Same' and 'Lucid Dreams'. Elsewhere, Australian solo artist and multi-instrumentalist G Flip joins the lineup following the release of her addictive, self-produced debut single 'About You', as well as London rapper Not3s who will bring his signature Afrobeat sound and tracks including 'Fine Line', 'Aladdin' and viral breakthrough hit 'Addison Lee'.

London alternative-rock quartet Bastille will be storming the stage with hits from their two Number 1 albums, 'Bad Blood' and 'Wild World', including the trailblazing single 'Pompeii' and current global smash 'Happier', as well as songs from their hotly anticipated forthcoming album 'Doom Days'. In addition, YUNGBLUD will be returning to the festival after a rave performance in 2018 and is sure to bring something even more exhilarating to fans next summer.

Marking their first European announcement, The Distillers return to Reading and Leeds in 2019. They will be joined by Boston based rock trio PVRIS led by frontwoman Lynn Gunn. Other Stateside stars joining the bill are Texan pop-punk pioneers Bowling for Soup who have delivered infectious power pop music to the world for over two decades. Hit singles such as 'Girl All The Bad Guys Want' and '1985' will no doubt draw huge crowd sing-alongs. The multi-talented Hayley Kiyoko also joins the lineup following her 'Expectations' tour which saw her receive worldwide critical reception for her amazing stage presence and vocals. Expect to hear huge hits including 'What I Need', 'Curious' and breakthrough single 'Girls Like Girls'. Billie Eilish whose debut single 'Ocean Eyes' has had over 132 million streams on Spotify alone is destined to steal the stage with a truly breathtaking performance, while indie favourites Sundara Karma are added to the bill ahead of the release of their sophomore album 'Ulfilas' Alphabet' early next year.

Kings of grime beats and heavy basslines CruCast (Skepsis, Darkzy, Bru-C, Mr Virgo, TS7, Lazcru, Window Kid) will get the crowd bouncing, as well as Glasgow DJ Denis Sulta with his vivacious, melodic house tunes. Electronic duo CamelPhat are also confirmed, and with the likes of single 'Cola' as one of this year's stealthiest and most vital dance records, they're sure to keep crowds on the dance floor until last call.

With hundreds of acts set to play, Reading and Leeds will again be the unmissable festival weekend of the summer - defining and celebrating the sounds of modern ground-breaking music, as well as a world-class comedy line up.

Fans can be the first to hear further line-up announcements, artist news and much more by signing up to the newsletters at www.readingfestival.com and www.leedsfestival.com or via the official Reading and Leeds Festival app, available to download now on Android and iOS.

Bringing some thrash to the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Friday are Bay Area five-piece, DEATH ANGEL.  Frontman Mark Osegueda comments, "We haven't played BLOODSTOCK since 2013, when we had to run straight from the stage after a blistering set to a van that took us to the airport to make it to our next show!  So we look forward to experiencing this incredible festival properly in all its glory in 2019! It will have been six years since we graced that stage and we have been dying to return.  We promise to show you how eager we've been to get back to BLOODSTOCK with a pure thrash set fuelled by raw human aggression and passion!  Thank you BLOODSTOCK for bringing us back!!!!"  The band have also been working on new material for their ninth studio album set for release in 2019 with producer, Jason Suecof.  In the meantime, check out 'Lost' from 2016's 'The Evil Divide' album here - https://youtu.be/GVYl_hiD1oQ.

METAL CHURCH step into a main stage slot on Friday.  The American heavy metal trailblazers are set to release their twelfth studio album, 'Damned If You Do' on 7th December via Nuclear Blast in the UK.  Their 2016 release 'XI' marked the return of former frontman Mike Howe.  Check out a taster with new track, 'By The Numbers' here - https://youtu.be/SZTPkSdOF5U.  Mike tells us "We can't wait to get over to the UK and bring 'Damned If You Do' to our fans overseas.  BLOODSTOCK is going to be an incredible time and a show not to be missed."

Noted for founding both punk group The Dictators and the legendary Manowar, Ross Friedman and his band ROSS THE BOSS join the bill.  Having been introduced to Manowar co-founder Joey DeMaio by none other than Ronnie James Dio, it seems only fitting that ROSS THE BOSS will perform on the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Sunday.  Check out the video for the title track of current studio album, 'By Blood Sworn' here; https://youtu.be/0BMyWdNfJBQ.

Last but not least, a Catton Park favourite, EVIL SCARECROW will bring their intergalactic party to the main stage on Saturday.  The band have an array of fabulous vinyl and special editions available for recently released studio album, 'Chapter VI: Antartartica' over at PledgeMusic - www.pledgemusic.com/projects/evil-scarecrow-antartarctica.  While you peruse the goods on offer, check out new track, 'Red Riding Hood', about a martian invasion (naturally) over on their YouTube; https://youtu.be/eIXO2aXhwxE.

 Download Adds Loads More Acts To 2019 Festival.

Download FestivalWednesday 21st November 2018
Download Festival, the world's premier rock event, has announced a further 23 acts including Slayer with their last ever UK show, The Smashing Pumpkins, Dream Theater, Lamb of God, Eagles Of Death Metal, and more. The three-day festival takes place 14-16 June 2019 at the spiritual home of rock in Donington Park, Leicestershire. Tickets are on sale now at downloadfestival.co.uk/tickets .

Metal royalty Slayer will be making their final UK appearance at Download 2019 after 37 years of mayhem. Their impact on musical culture cannot be overstated and fans should prepare for yet another legendary performance which will include a barrage of classics as they make one last celebratory sweep of Donington.

The Smashing Pumpkins will make their first appearance at Download Festival next year. The alt-rock and grunge legends have stunned crowds worldwide on their 30th anniversary tour and are as ageless and seminal as ever. Loud, quiet, dreamy, stirring and everything in-between – The Smashing Pumpkins debut Download performance is not one to be missed.

Prog-metal titans Dream Theater have been at the top of the game for 33 years. Having inspired countless bands along their storied career, their performance will be no less grandiose as they return to Download after a 10 year absence. They will be joined by the groove-laden modern metal heavyweights Lamb of God, as well as Eagles Of Death Metal, who invite fans to revel in all their rock' n roll glory on their second ever Download appearance.

The prodigally powerful Maori-metal trio Alien Weaponry have carved their own sound somewhere between Sepultura and Silverschair and are in good company with the heavy-metal powerhouse Anthrax who will give fans a performance to remember. Brooding rockers Badflower are hotly-tipped after the success of their poignant, powerful single 'Ghost', and joining them are industrial noise-punks Black Futures who have been making seismic waves and will take the crowd on a trip of a lifetime.

Atlanta southern rockers Blackberry Smoke will be on hand to serve up a truck load of raucous country-infused good times. Detroit post-hardcore band I Prevail have proven that they are the real deal and will whip the crowd into a frenzy, and so too will Los Angeles natives The Interrupters. Ukrainian tech metallers Jinjer, led by their incredibly powerful frontwoman Tatiana Shmaylyuk, are also added to the line up and will bring their all-powerful live performance to Download.

Man With A Mission are jumping on board with their pulse-racing hooks, riffs and giant wolf heads in tow, and are joined by fellow genre-melder nothing,nowhere. who has taken the world by storm with his hybrid emo-rap, pushing both genres forward as the most exciting force in the ever-growing scene. Our Last Night whose rapid rise to success shows no sign of slowing down are also added to the bill, as too are Riding The Low who are making the pilgrimage from Burton-on-Trent featuring Paddy Considine on vocals.

Swedish sensations Royal Republic will also join the Download 2019 line up alongside Pop-punk front-runners State Champs who're fresh off the back of the release of their third album 'Living Proof'. Rising Nepalese metal disruptors Underside will turn up the volume and are in good company with the well-oiled deathcore machine Whitechapel who will steam roll in to lay waste to the fields of Donington.

Australian up-and-comers Yours Truly will be flying in with a freight of huge choruses with them, and last but not least Floridian party starters Zebrahead are bringing the fun with no shortage of anthems and antics to get the crowd going.

Download Festival is the home of rock music and takes place on the sacred grounds of Donington Park, which have been associated with rock since the eighties. The festival attracts icons of rock to its main stage, plus some of the best and hottest new acts in the world. AC/DC, KISS, Metallica, Black Sabbath, The Prodigy, Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Linkin Park and many more have all headlined the main stage.

Bad Religion have released another new single titled "My Sanity," as premiered on KROQ late last week. Listen to "My Sanity" by Bad Religion now. Additionally, Bad Religion will perform at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas in Los Angeles on December 8th and plan to release more new music in 2019.

Previously, Bad Religion released "The Profane Rights of Man," a "short, fast, and packed with righteous harmonies" track according to Consequence of Sound. Additionally, the band released "The Kids Are Alt-Right," a "catchy and deeply satisfying melody-surge about new permutations of racism" as reported by Stereogum.

Bad Religion began in the sprawling suburbs surrounding Los Angeles, with the teenage punks offering an impassioned counterpoint to a culture of consumerism and anti-intellectualism. Founding members Greg Graffin, Brett Gurewitz, and Jay Bentley were eventually joined by guitarists Brian Baker of Minor Threat, Mike Dimkich of The Cult, and the supremely talented drummer Jamie Miller of ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead.

 Fun Lovin Ceiminals Back With First New Material Since 2010.

Fun Lovin CriminalsWednesday 14th November 2018
Multi-platinum New York trio Fun Lovin' Criminals return with new material for the first time since 2010 with the release of 'Daylight' today and upcoming UK/European 'Another Mimosa' tour.

A reworking of the Bobby Womack / Georgie Fame classic; 'Daylight' features a guest appearance from renowned vocalist Rowetta of The Happy Mondays. 'Daylight' is the lead single lifted from forthcoming album 'Another Mimosa', set for release on January 18th 2019 in the 20th anniversary year of their cult album 'Mimosa'. A variation on the theme of the 1999 album, which became a cult classic with Crims fans for featuring clever re-imaginings of classic covers, remixes and rarities, 'Another Mimosa' draws on their seminal influences from the last 20 years.

"Another Mimosa is a continuation of a long tradition of the FLC paying homage to those great songwriters that we stand on the shoulders of," notes Huey, from our love of hip hop, to soul to jazz and rock we humbly offer our fans another taste of our unique cocktail."

Recorded in London's Gibson Studios with life-long "fourth member", the Grammy-award winning engineer Tim Latham (Hamilton soundtrack, A Tribe Called Quest, De le Soul, Lou Reed), 'Another Mimosa' is a collection of beautifully crafted, eclectic 'original covers'. From Tom Petty's 'Mary Janes Last Dance' switched up with HipHop beats and a classic Rock influence, to the raw blues of Freddie King's "Going Down'; Ice Cube's classic "You Know How We Do It" is made their own with Huey's smoky drawl and the grace of Neil Diamonds' "Hello Again" receives the FLC treatment. Alongside a high energy reworking of their own 'Love Unlimited' and 'Southside' and a brand new FLC track 'Sunset'; its an album that turns charms and intrigues.

The Another Mimosa tour kicks off in Birmingham on the 31st January, and wraps up in Leeds on the 31st March 2019, the UK leg of the tour will also see FLC travel to Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Nottingham, Southhampton, Norwich, Worthing, Oxford and London. Tickets for the Another Mimosa tour are available to purchase here

Still a mainstay on the festival circuit in UK and Europe, FLC are Europe's best-loved "cousins from New York", whip-smart story-tellers in smarter Saville Row suits who, through comically tall tales of living large in the neon metropolis, launched a career in music. They burst onto the music scene in 1996, gate crashing the euphoric Brit-pop party with unforgettable finesse. Heralded for their generation defining blend of styles and effortless Lower East Side charm, FLC's refreshing cocktail of rock n' roll, funk, blues, soul, hip hop, jazz and latin, gave the Crims a unique timelessness that is still apparent three decades on. The Lower East side trio consists of frontman turned Sony Award winning BBC broadcaster Huey Morgan, his founding partner Brian 'Fast' Leiser on bass, trumpet, keys and samples and the groups longest-standing drummer Frank 'The Rhythm Master' Benbini.

Mainly, I've just been itching to get back on the road in recent years, as I've really started to enjoy touring and finally feel at home being a frontman after years of struggling with it.

 New Years Day Release New Song 'Skeletons'.

New Years DayWednesday 14th November 2018
New Years Day have just dropped their new song "Skeletons" off of their forthcoming full-length album, which is slated for release spring 2019. The track is available on all streaming services HERE.

"I have been working for over a year, constantly writing new music. We want everyone to know that a new wave of music will be coming to you soon and I thought our new song 'Skeletons' would be a great intro to the new world of my band, New Years Day," states Ash Costello about the band's newest release. "More than anything, I wanted the era of New Years Day to be rock that is also fun to listen to."

"'Skeletons' is about wanting to know all the parts of someone, even the parts they deem to be negative. It's saying that when you are into someone, you're into ALL of them, and want to love the dark in them as well as the light. It's a fun rock song with a heavy riff intro, a bouncy lead vocal line, and a soaring chorus."

The Anaheim rockers will be hitting the road with Halestorm and In This Moment starting on November 16th in Norfolk, Virginia and wrapping on December 16th in Saint Petersburg, Florida. The band will be hitting major markets such as New York City, Dallas, Orlando, Detroit, and more. This will conclude a full year of touring with the all-female-fronted U.S. tour. For more information on tour dates and to purchase tickets, visit the band's website HERE. Fans can also purchase VIP passes, which doesn't include a ticket, HERE.

Formed in Orange County, Calif. by Ashley Costello, New Years Day shook the scene with their Century Media debut, Victim to Villain, in 2013 featuring their breakout single "Angel Eyes." The five-piece later cemented their place in the heavy music landscape with their Epidemic EP and critically-acclaimed Malevolence full-length in 2015, clocking more than 20 million views on YouTube. The band has since become the most visually-captivating group in modern rock, playing for millions of fans around the world, sharing the stage with Ozzy Osbourne, Nine Inch Nails, Escape The Fate, Hellyeah and Five Finger Death Punch while also headlining the longest-running touring festival, Vans Warped Tour, in 2017. As new challenges and new worlds beckon, the band released their most recent EP, Diary of a Creep, in January to pay tribute to the artists who shaped them thus far. The EP featured renditions of Garbage's "Only Happy When It Rains," New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle," No Doubt's "Don't Speak" and their original track "Disgust Me". Watch the music video for "Disgust Me" HERE.

 Architects New Album 'Holy Hell' Out Now.

ArchitectsFriday 9th November 2018
ARCHITECTS have today released their highly anticipated, eighth album 'Holy Hell' through Epitaph Records.

The release, which at times seemed as impossible as possible, has already been heralded as a "cathartic, emotional stunner" (Kerrang! 5/5), "a victory" (Metal Hammer 8/10) and led Upset Magazine to place the band on their current November cover, give 'Holy Hell' a 5/5 review and state "Rather than echo what's come before, Architects have taken the baton and run with it. This is the story of what comes next."

"I was desperate not to continue as some shitty, half-arsed version that paled in comparison to what we were before. I'd rather have thrown in the towel," explains Dan Searle in an interview with Alternative Press, referring to continuing the band after the heart-wrenching loss of his twin brother and Architects' co-founder, Tom Searle. 

"There was no band for a period of time. It was just a group of best friends and we were lucky to have each other," Sam Carter offered in a recent Kerrang cover story. Architects take fans behind-the-scenes of the triumphant return that is Holy Hell with the documentary, "Holy Ghost" (https://found.ee/architects_holyghost), chronicling various periods of their recording sessions as well as riveting, bittersweet footage from Architects' February 2018, sold out performance to 10,000 fans at London's Alexandra Palace.

Reviews for the 11-song album have been outstanding across the board, with DIY Magazine calling it "powerfully honest, and refreshingly unfiltered", Total Guitar dubbing it "the year's most affecting metal record" and Clash Magazine calling it "a stunning record that lays their pain, vulnerability and strength right out on the table".

Physical and digital links to purchase/stream the album can be found via the band's website - HERE

ARCHITECTS have announced two intimate UK in-store signings, the first at Banquet Records (Kingston) on Friday 9th November at 5pm and the second at Resident Records (the bands hometown of Brighton) on Saturday 10th November at 6:30pm. For further details, check the below links:

 Dance Gavin Dance Release New Song 'Son Of Robot'.

Dance Gavin DanceFriday 9th November 2018
 American rock quintet Dance Gavin Dance have released a brand new video for song Son Of Robot. The song is from the band's album Artificial Selection out now via Rise Records. The album was produced by the band, Kris Crummett, Erik Ron and Dryw Owens, Artificial Selection is the strongest and most wondrously diverse showcase yet for the lauded post-hardcore experimentalists, equal parts intense, melodic, and unbound. 

Watch new video for Son Of Robot here

Artificial Selection is available now here.
Where most bands erroneously claim wholly distinct identities, Dance Gavin Dance truly defies categorization. The Sacramento based outfit possess the kind of artistic compass shared with broadminded but metal and punk-rooted iconoclasts like The Mars Volta and Coheed and Cambria, but use it to diverge wildly, charting a new course that incorporates the melodic post-hardcore of Thursday or Taking Back Sunday with a taste of earnest pop melancholy.  

Dance Gavin Dance fans have streamed "We Own the Night" nearly 12 million times on Spotify alone, with staple catalog anthems "Chucky vs. the Giant Tortoise," "Young Robot," "Inspire the Liars," and "Deception" accounting for another 30 million streams on top of that. Their albums regularly chart in the Billboard 200, they've graced the cover of magazines like Alternative Press, and toured with Vans Warped Tour, A Day To Remember, and Pierce The Veil, all on their own terms.

 Sevendust To Tour The UK In December.

SevendustFriday 9th November 2018
US headbangers SEVENDUST have unveiled a new music video for the latest song released from their twelfth studio album and Rise Records debut, All I See Is War. “Unforgiven” is set in a post-apocalyptic world created from an idea director Scott Hansen presented to the band. The concept is that the world is rebuilding and the youth will be the ones to keep mankind going long after the adults are no longer around, a message that has been shared throughout society for decades. The video can be seen here: https://youtu.be/f_qScOrrR-s.

“The ‘Unforgiven’ video was a great experience for me. I loved working with everyone on that shoot. It was like being in a movie for real and I hope we can do something like that again,” enthuses vocalist Lajon Witherspoon.

SEVENDUST’s twelfth studio album, ‘All I See Is War’ has picked up notable critical acclaim, with Rock Sound stating, "impeccably slick... the quality of these songs remains undeniable." Kerrang! added, "a surprisingly contemporary return," praising frontman Lajon Witherspoon as "the velvet-throated singer sounding every bit as impressive as he did at the turn of the millennium." Total Guitar laud the band for "consistently strong albums, packing heavy hooks, soulful vocal harmonies, and inventive rhythms,” while Classic Rock praised “the Atlanta band’s best album in years… a solidly emphatic musical statement.” Upset championed SEVENDUST’s history, complimenting, “Twelve albums in, they still know how to rock.” Powerplay awarded the album a 9/10 score, declaring it a "masterpiece of sound... emphasising the band's artistry to its full potential." As for the live show, when Metal Hammer caught their set at a major US festival this summer, they bestowed a 9/10 rating and called them, “one of the day’s best bands.”

SEVENDUST recently wrapped a successful tour of the United States opening for Clutch. On December 1st, the band will make a long-heralded return to the UK for a week of headline dates, their first shows here in seven years.

Dates are as follows:
Sat 1st Dec - SOUTHAMPTON Engine Rooms (tickets)
Sun 2nd Dec - LONDON Electric Brixton (tickets)
Tue 4th Dec - MANCHESTER Academy 2 (tickets)
Wed 5th Dec - GLASGOW Garage (tickets)
Thu 6th Dec - NOTTINGHAM Rock City (tickets)

Fans can go to www.sevendust.com for more information on the tour, VIP packages and ticket purchase links to all shows.

 Amon Amarth Announce Fan screening In London For Concert Film.

Amon AmarthFriday 9th November 2018
On November 16th, Amon Amarth will release their new documentary and supporting live album, The Pursuit Of Vikings: 25 Years In The Eye Of The Storm - which includes a retrospective documentary featuring a wealth of live and behind-the-scenes content and extensive band interviews. This film tells the Swedish quintet's history, through both their own eyes and those of the fans that have supported them along the way. It is a thrilling collection that pays respect to the faithful, as well as making for a detailed and riveting introduction for those new to their inspiring story. Paired with this documentary is the live video/audio, which contains two different sets at 2017's Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbühl, Germany, capturing the unit at their very best.

Having played the German festival numerous times over the years, and loving the family vibe they have always experienced there, Amon Amarth leapt at the chance to appear twice in the same year. Playing a secret, smaller scale set that focused primarily on older material, and then headlining the main stage with full production - including their giant sea serpent and lots of fire - allowed them to showcase their songs at their best - though putting together setlists from such a mighty catalogue was not the easiest of tasks. "For the first night, we wanted to write a set that the fans would enjoy by wholly diving into our back catalogue but also keeping it interesting," explains guitarist Olavi Mikkonen. "But putting the two shows together also made us realise that we have a lot of songs to choose from!" 

UK fans will get the chance to watch the release early, with a special fan screening event taking place in London on the evening of Monday, November 12th, at the Everyman cinema on Baker Street. With the band's Johan Hegg (vocals) and Johan Söderberg (guitar) flying in to take part in a live Q&A on the night as well, hosted by producer Alex Milas and director Phil Wallis, it's sure to be a very memorable evening. With very limited spaces, don't delay in picking up tickets, which are on sale now!

GET SCREENING EVENT TICKETS AT:

The release will be available in multiple UK formats via label Music For Nations, including CD/2DVD 8-Panel Digipak, Blu-ray (which includes audio digital download of Main Stage Show), and 2LP black vinyl.

As a band, we try to convey messages of hope and with this project specifically, redemption,” says Johnny 3 Tears (vocals, bass guitar). “If I could speak to every individual who needs help I would. But no one can do that, and that’s why we make the music we do. Hopefully we can help someone with these songs. They have definitely helped us.” Fans can stream and download the EP HERE.

 Rival Sons Announce New Album 'Feral Roots'.

Rival SonsFriday 9th November 2018
Rival Sons have announced the release of their highly-anticipated new album. FERAL ROOTS arrives everywhere on January 25th via GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Dave Cobb's major label imprint Low Country Sound/Atlantic Records. The forthcoming LP, which was announced today via Consequence of Sound here, and is highlighted by the brand new track "Back In The Woods."  "Back In The Woods" is streaming today on Rival Sons' official YouTube channel and at all DSPs.

Produced by longtime collaborator Cobb at Nashville's famed RCA Studio A and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, FERAL ROOTS marks Rival Sons' Low Country Sound/Atlantic Records debut. Featuring covering artwork painted by renowned contemporary artist Martin Wittfooth, FERAL ROOTS is available for pre-order today with exclusive pre-order bundles - including limited edition vinyl and autographed lithographs of the Wittfooth designed cover art - available at www.rivalsons.com.  All pre-orders are joined by instant grat downloads of the previously released album track "Do Your Worst," and "Back In The Woods." 

"Do Your Worst" - which is closing in on the Top 15 at Active Rock Radio - debuted last month via Rolling Stone, who hailed the single as "a relentless rocker with a gritty verse spearheaded by a sinister lead guitar riff and thumping drums. The track takes a deft turn when it hits the chorus, forgoing out-and-out guitar bombast for rousing gang vocals with singer Jay Buchanan leading the charge."

Known far and wide as a powerhouse live act, Rival Sons will celebrate FERAL ROOTS with a worldwide tour schedule, including a headline European run set for early 2019. North American dates will be announced in the weeks to come. For updates, please visit www.rivalsons.com.

 Dream Theater Announce New Album 'Distance Over Time'.

Dream TheaterWednesday 7th November 2018
Two-time Grammy-nominated and millions-selling progressive music titans Dream Theater announce the forthcoming worldwide release of their 14th studio album, Distance Over Time on February 22, 2019. Distance Over Time showcases a newfound creativity for Dream Theater while maintaining the elements that have garnered them devoted fans around the globe. The album also marks the first for the band’s new label InsideOutMusic / Sony Music. The artwork was created by long-time cover collaborator Hugh Syme (Rush, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour). Distance Over Time was produced by John Petrucci, mixed by Ben Grosse, and mastered by Tom Baker.

“When I listen back to the album, I can distinctly recall every moment of the writing process; where I was standing in the room, what inspired us in that instant and the meaning behind each song. As a producer, my goal was to try and create the best-sounding Dream Theater record we’ve ever made so that listeners can just be enveloped in the music. I really wanted this recording to truly reflect the spirit, joy, and passion that went into making the album and for people to walk away feeling some of the organic nature, personality, and raw energy that the band captured while together in the studio. For me, I think it accomplishes that and I hope that other people will feel the same way,” explains John Petrucci.

In June 2018, Dream Theater secluded themselves in a private location in upstate New York to begin writing for the new record. While spending the summer living together in the property's adjacent residence, the band spent their days and nights crafting the music that would make up the new album in the ‘Yonderbarn’; a beautiful and spacious barn that had been meticulously transformed into a state-of-the art film and recording studio. Following an intense & extremely productive period of group writing sessions and wanting to retain the magic that was captured in this scenic and inspiring location, they decided to record the album in the very room they had all convened to write together in. Living together during the writing and recording for Distance Over Time marked another first for the band’s 33-year career. The result is a heavier collection of songs that showcases the early roots of the band while exploring new territory as musicians and as friends.

“It was like going back to summer camp,” adds James LaBrie. “Being around each other the whole time made it that much more of a profound experience. I think the songs reflect the energy. It was a lot of fun to have a situation so powerful at this point in our career.”

It has been 3 years since Dream Theater released new music. To announce the details of the brand new album, Dream Theater enlisted the help of one lucky contest winner to break the news of the record to the loyal fans of the band. An alternate reality game was launched that encompassed a “treasure hunt” whereby fans were able to search for clues hidden in various photos, videos, social media posts, and more. Ultimately, one lucky winner was given access to content before everyone else including the release date and cover artwork, and the winner would be the one to share the first taste of never before heard music. Listen to that first teaser here: https://youtu.be/TKi3aQyWqHM.

Dream Theater is also planning to hit the road in support of the new album. The Distance Over Time Tour of North America was recently announced and kicks off on March 20, 2019 in California. Information on tickets for all upcoming shows as well as VIP packages can be found at www.dreamtheater.net. More tour dates for the worldwide tour will be announced in the near future.

Progressive metal pioneers Dream Theater - James LaBrie (Vocals), John Petrucci (Guitars), Jordan Rudess (Keyboards), John Myung (Bass), and Mike Mangini (Drums) - share a bond with one of the most passionate fan bases around the globe as evidenced by their two GRAMMY® Award nominations, platinum-certified videos, multiple Top Ten-charting albums selling over 15 million records worldwide, and numerous other accolades. On its 14th full-length and first release for InsideOutMusic / Sony Music, Distance Over Time, the band recharge the brotherhood that has kept them creating music together for over 30 years. It’s Dream Theater at their most dynamic, direct, and definitive.

In 2018, InsideOutMusic is celebrating 25 years as one of the leading labels worldwide for progressive music and is part of the Century Media Label Group, a division of Sony Music.

 Paul Weller Announces Forestry Commision Shows.

Paul WellerMonday 5th November 2018
Paul Weller is the first artist to announce gigs as part of Forest Live 2019, the summer concert series promoted by the Forestry Commission.

Paul’s latest release ‘True Meanings’, entered the UK charts at No 2. It is his fourteenth solo album and the twenty-sixth studio album of his career that began in 1977 with The Jam’s debut album ‘In the City’. Five era-defining albums followed before he experienced further recognition with The Style Council and subsequent success with numerous solo releases such as ‘Wild Wood’, ‘Wake Up The Nation’ and ‘Sonik Kicks’. Paul Weller’s versatility and creative edge has connected with fans across the generations, making him one of the most significant players of the British Music scene over the past four decades. A cultural icon, his impact, relevance and popularity with the public, fellow musicians and critics alike remains unabated in his milestone 60th year.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series held every summer by Forestry Commission England in seven beautiful forests. Over 1.75 million people have attended a forest gig in the last eighteen years. Money raised from ticket sales helps to look after the nation’s forests sustainably, for people to enjoy and wildlife to thrive.

Paul Weller made his Forest Live debut in 2004 and has played to sell-out crowds ever since, with his most recent appearances being in 2014.

A bit about the meaning behind the single 'Fate I' from singer Will Gardner - "The songwriting for 'All That Divides' happened over two sessions, and 'Fate' was one of the last songs that came from first batch. We started playing it live towards the end of the Statues tour. The main section of the song came together when our tour van was stopped in the middle of the Yorkshire countryside, and for some reason Joe (Gosney, guitar) decided this was the best possible time to change his guitar strings... He started jamming the final section of the song and we all immediately shouted - 'Wooahh! That's awesome, lets keep that!'

Lyrically the song was inspired by some 'people watching' - and observing examples of humanity's lack of empathy, and self-obsession, especially in terms of how we treat the environment. Digging deeper, the song questions whether we are at a turning point where we can change our mindset and realise that we, as humans, don't 'own' the world. Much like a lot of the album, we we're keen to create a bit of a 'journey', and while the song comes from a place of sadness and anger, the chorus also has a undertone of hope and optimism."
https://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gif
This single is the first part of the final double track 'Fate I & II' taken from the bands newly released 2nd album 'All That Divides', which came out on October 5th through Rise Records/BMG to rave reviews across the board. NME gave the album 5/5 and said "With 'All That Divides', the band delivers an album that's confident, stylistically cohesive, and points towards their ascending star in the future. If there's one thing that this album shows, it's that Black Peaks are a force to be reckoned with." whist Upset Magazine (of who put the band on the cover for their September issue) gave the album 5/5 and said ''BLACK PEAKS bellow unity from the rooftops. It's not a political record, but it does dish out the blame...rather than dwelling in the more though, BLACK PEAKS want hope. They need it...A call to arms entwined, it's a record of struggle and resistance. It doesn't have the answers, but it knows they're out there. It wants to find them together.".

Other outlets like Kerrang! (4/5), Dork (5/5), Metal Hammer (8/10), Planet Rock Magazine (4/5), Rhythm (4/5), Discovered Magazine (10/10), The Skinny (4/5) and New Noise (US - 5/5) backed up the praise, with The Independent stating "..their sublime second album All That Divides, which is massive in every sense of the word. Bringing in Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse) was a master-stroke – his production plays a big part in how the album offers up vast sonic landscape that takes you on an intense, emotional journey via album highlight "Aether", across "Slow Seas", and closing on "Fate I & II". This feels like a real achievement."

The band have already released the singles 'Home', Electric Fires' and 'Can't Sleep', and the later was a Radio 1 Rock Show Rockest Record and Huw Stevens Single Of The Week in April, and is the opening track on 'All That Divides'. Live wise in 2018, on top of their recent UK 'All That Divides' headline tour (that took in two sold out London show at The Omera and The Underworld) the band have toured with A Perfect Circle across Europe, a UK tour with Marmozets and a special one off show for BBC Radio 1 in Swansea, as a headliner for their Biggest Weekend Fringe Festival/event. These tours add to an already impressive touring history that includes dates and tours in UK and Europe with the likes of Mastodon, Architects, A System Of A Down, Prophets Of Rage, Dillinger Escape Plan, Bury Tomorrow, Lonely The Brave and Arcane Roots. In the summer, the band will played a host of UK and European festivals including ArcTanGent (August) and Reading and Leeds (August), a 2nd stage headlining slot at the 2000trees Festival (July) and Fat Lip Festival (August).

 As It Is Release New Music Video.

As It IsSunday 4th November 2018
Brighton quartet As It Is, have released a chilling and intense new music video for 'The Reaper', the band heaviest and darkest cut to date. The song featuring guest vocals from Aaron Gillespie of Underoath fame, who also makes an appearance in the horror inspired music video.  

'The Reaper' is taken from As It Is' new album, 'The Great Depression' released earlier this year via Fearless Records. The album also features the singles 'The Wounded World', 'The Stigma (Boys Don't Cry)' and 'The Fire, The Dark'.

Speaking of the video, Ben Langford-Biss says, "The Reaper is the moment in the record's narrative where The Poet becomes so desensitised to the concept of death, that death appears and manifests before him, offering an "escape"- not in a malicious way, but as a means of release from the pain The Poet is feeling. It was one of the most crucial and challenging moments in the narrative, and it was the last one that came together – lyrically and musically. 
To confer these themes of turmoil and conflict, the sort of inner claustrophobia The Poet is experiencing, we wanted the video to be gritty and dark. We ended up taking visual influence from some of our favourite horror movies and TV series, and our director Zak Pinchin really clicked with what we were trying to get across. 
The video shows each of us waking up trapped in rooms, each room representing one of the four stages of grief that the record is chaptered into; denial, anger, bargaining & acceptance. Each of us faces off with death in some respect, whether that be in a literal or metaphysical sense, and there is an external antagonist controlling the events in the rooms – forcing us to face our fears, our grief, or even ourselves.  We were super excited that Aaron Gillespie was able to be a part of the video, to play the part of this puppeteer / antagonist! 
Both the song and the video are so different to anything we've done before, and we're so fortunate that our fans have embraced the darker and heavier side of our band & our constant desire to progress in new directions. And we just cannot wait to finally bring this album to life on stage when we finally start touring The Great Depression era this week: first in Japan, and then in Europe and UK  (which culminates in our biggest headline show to date at the London Forum on December 1), and then we'll be returning to the US in early 2019 for our first time since Warped Tour! There's so much more to come from this chapter of our band, we are only just getting started."

As It Is bring The Great Depression tour to UK venues later this year with their biggest headline dates to date:

 While She Sleeps Amnnounce New Single 'Anti Social' And New Album 'So What?'.

While She SleepsTSunday 4th November 2018
WHILE SHE SLEEPS have announced that their fourth studio album 'SO WHAT?' will be released on 1st March via their own Sleeps Brothers label. They've also revealed its first single, 'Anti-Social'. An explosive, relentless four-minute anthem, it takes everything you know and love about While She Sleeps – clattering riffs, bruising breakdowns, snarling lyrics and big-ass singalongs – and sticks them in a blender. It's punk, it's heavy metal, it couldn't be any other band but them, and yet it sounds unlike anything you've heard from them before. It's the sound of While She Sleeps reborn. They've also announced a mammoth UK & European headline tour through February, culminating at The Roundhouse in London on the day the album drops. Support on the tour will come from Stray From The Path and Landmvrks plus further special guest tbc.

"We've let our hair down and we've got our bollocks out. I'm not fucking about. I'm not cutting corners. I've been writing like this will be my last album." - Sean Long (guitar)

Some bands play it safe when it comes to taking their next steps. But then, While She Sleeps have never been "some band". The Sheffield quintet have made a career out of confounding expectations, be it through their dizzying blend of crushing metal, guttural hardcore and arena-worthy hooks, or the way they've carried themselves over an explosive, 13-year career. Their last album, 2017's 'You Are We,' was a testament to the power of self-belief and determination; crowdfunded and released on the band's own Sleeps Brothers label, it earned them award nominations from the likes of Metal Hammer and a Best Album win at the Heavy Music Awards, as well as landing them in the top ten of the UK album charts. Now, they look to build on that success with the release of fourth studio album: 'SO WHAT?'

"You Are We got us to this special position, and it's given us a platform," continues guitarist Sean Long. "For us, it's like, 'What can we do to really stick this in people's faces? What can we put out there that we're buzzing off?' I don't want to be following everyone else; I want people to follow us."

Recorded with producer Carl Bown at the band's self-built studio Sleeps Audio, 'SO WHAT?' promises to be another defiant step forwards. Set for release on Sleeps Brothers in collaboration with metal mega-label Spinefarm, this new record sees While She Sleeps working with a major label again for the first time since 2015's 'Brainwashed', and the band are at pains to point out that this won't mean there'll be any compromise in their vision. "We got approached immediately by a bunch of labels, but we turned around to all of them and said, 'The only way we're going to do anything is if you let us release it on Sleeps Brothers, but you house that on your train, and we make the decisions behind everything," Mat explains. "I fucking loved releasing You Are We ourselves, but at the same time, I played more on my laptop than I did on my guitar for the whole campaign. This release is a partnership between Sleeps Brothers and Spinefarm, but no one is breathing down our necks about the record we're making or the singles we're putting out."

With a bigger platform to get their music into the world and a firestorm of a first single released, 2019 is shaping up to be the year of While She Sleeps. For a band that have spent over a decade redefining modern metal, it seems the best is yet to come.

 Bon Jovi Announces UK Stadium Shows.

Bon JoviSunday 4th November 2018
After thousands of sold out shows, it's clear - Bon Jovi = One Wild Night.

One of the planet's biggest rock bands, Bon Jovi announce their return to the UK, continuing a triumphant world tour that has visited the USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Chile and will hit Japan and Australia later in 2018. A huge year of 80 shows and counting has also seen them inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Their This House Is Not For Sale European Tour is set to be another blockbuster.

Bon Jovi will finish what they started by returning to Wembley Stadium in London, 19 years after they were the last band to play the old Wembley and 13 years since they almost became the first to play the new stadium - until overrunning building works put a stop to that. 'Who Says You Can't Go Home?' as the Bon Jovi hit goes.......

Elsewhere in the UK, They will become among the first bands to play Liverpool's legendary Anfield Stadium since 2008 in a city they last played during their seminal Slippery When Wet tour at the Royal Court Theatre in 1986.

They will end the tour at Coventry's Ricoh Arena, where the band performed in 2006 and 2008 to acclaim.

"Those huge shows, tens of thousands of people all together as one, that's what we do," says Jon Bon Jovi, "And we've got a few things to put right by playing Wembley Stadium. We were so excited to be the first band to play that new Stadium, I would have helped build it myself to make it happen. So we have a new history to write there. We've had some great nights at the Ricoh too.

"Throw in Anfield as a new venue - OK that's just us showing off! We're honoured to play there and the first thing I'm doing is getting that iconic picture under the 'This Is Anfield' sign."

The success of latest album This House Is Not For Sale, which debuted at the top of charts around the world, was the culmination of a tempestuous period in the band's 3 decade history. A defiant statement, launched in a series of intimate shows in 2016 (including a memorable night at London's famous Palladium), the album became the jumping off point for a new era for Jon Bon Jovi and his band.

And that band has evolved since their last global trip. 2013's Because We Can World Tour, was their third tour in six years to be ranked the #1 top-grossing tour in the world (a feat accomplished by only The Rolling Stones previously).

This will be their first UK tour since 2013 when the band played 3 epic hours to launch the British Summer Time Hyde Park festival and headlined the Isle Of Wight Festival.

They will be joined in all UK dates by special guests - Manic Street Preachers.

The band now features Bon Jovi originals David Bryan and Tico Torres alongside Jon, plus long time bassist Hugh McDonald, co-producer and co-songwriter John Shanks, multi-instrumentalist Everett Bradley and lead guitarist Phil X, who joined the band on that 2013 tour. All were on stage for an emotional set at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction to add to a momentous year.

"We've become a new, rejuvenated Bon Jovi," says Jon, "A refreshed line up that kills every night. We sound better than ever and we're enjoying every minute. We are out there as a band, feeding off each other and the fans, having the time of our lives all over again."

This tour places the spotlight firmly on the music and the songs, the body of work that has propelled Bon Jovi to over 130 million record sales. The band is ready with a choice of around 95 songs that they can change up every night, but has also been playing all time classics like "You Give Love A Bad Name", "It's My Life", "Wanted Dead Or Alive", "Bad Medicine", "Who Says You Can't Go Home", "Keep the Faith", "Always", "Have A Nice Day" and of course, "Livin' On A Prayer."

 AFI Get Dark.

AFISunday 4th November 2018
It's a morning of surprises for AFI fans, beginning with today's release of new track "Get Dark," which can be heard HERE or by clicking below.
The second surprise is that "Get Dark" is the first track from a special EP titled The Missing Man (VIA Ex Noctem Nacimur), which was produced and mixed by AFI guitarist Jade Puget and is slated for a December 7threlease.

"Get Dark" is available as an instant download by clicking HERE to pre-order The Missing Man.

"Thanks to the unexpected continuation of The Blood Tour, we found ourselves inspired to begin writing," says AFI lead vocalist Davey Havok. "It was during this process that The Missing Man was found."

About "Get Dark," Havok says, "From the initial performance and recording, it had a driving sense of forward movement and penetrating connection. The song's themes of deification and deference, self-loathing and vanity, captivation and release, damage and healing, are posed in a subtle invitation to those inherently compelled to accept."

About the production, Puget says, "I was aiming for something a little raw for 'Get Dark.' In fact, I used most of the vocal takes from the very first time Davey sang it, as well as some of my guitar parts from when we were writing it. The song is built on the sparseness and simplicity of the verse drum groove and guitar riff that opens up into this big anthemic chorus. For the EP, the same idea of a certain rawness was really important to the overall vibe. I feel like it's easy to turn out a slick, polished set of songs, but to walk that fine line between studio creation and live sound can be difficult. It's been an intense labor of love and we can't wait for everyone to hear it."

The Missing Man follows last year's AFI (The Blood Album), which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Alternative and Hard Rock Albums Charts and No. 5 on The Billboard 200.  It was the band's second consecutive Top 10 Billboard debut following 2013's Burials.

Alternative Press and gave AFI (The Blood Album) 4 stars each, AV Club said it sounded like the band are "as fired up now as they were 25 years ago," People magazine made it a Pick of the Week, Kerrang called it a "serious contender" for the Best Albums of 2017 list, The 405 praised it as "their strongest album in a decade" and ABC News gave it 3.5 stars and described it as "a dynamic record that should please both old and new fans of the band."

Since the release of 1995's debut album Answer That and Stay Fashionable, AFI has written and recorded five top ten hit singles ("Miss Murder," "Medicate," "Love Like Winter," "Silver and Gold," "Girl's Not Grey"), hit No. 1 on The Billboard 200 (with the stunning Decemberunderground), garnered worldwide critical acclaim and amassed a fiercely loyal global following whose members number in the millions.

 Mastodon Announce 2019 UK Tour.

MastodonTuesday 23rd October 2018
Grammy-Award-winning hard rock quartet Mastodon has confirmed their return to live action with an extensive tour of the U.K. and Europe beginning January 14 in Belfast, N. Ireland and ending in Lisbon, Portugal on February 17. This tour includes a show at London's prestigious Brixton Academy on January 25. Support on all dates will be Kvelertak and Mutoid Man. Also, Scott Kelly of the band Neurosis will be joining the band on stage on all dates through February 9, in Brussels, Belgium.  VIP upgrades will available and can be found at www.mastodonrocks.com/tour. Ticket pre-sale begins October 24 at 10:00 A.M. GMT. General ticket on-sale begins October 26 at 10:00am GMT.

Additionally, promoters for each show will be making donations to one of the following three charities, The TJ Martel Foundation, Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research and Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in honor of the bands long time manager, Nick John, who passed away last month from pancreatic cancer. For further details, go to: mastodonrocks.com.  

One of the most internationally respected and influential heavy rock bands of their generation or any other, Mastodon continue to push forward musically, lyrically, compositionally and have become a genre unto themselves as a result. Their current acclaimed album, Emperor Of Sand, has won a 2018 GRAMMY® Award for "Best Metal Performance" for the track "Sultan's Curse". The Atlanta rock band was also nominated in the "Best Rock Album" category for Emperor of Sand. This marks Mastodon's first Grammy win following their previous five GRAMMY® nominations to date. The album also landed the #1 spot in METAL HAMMER Top 100 Albums Of The Year, and Mastodon picked up 'Best Live Band' at the 2017 Metal Hammer Golden Gods. Emperor of Sand remains both a critical and commercial success for the quartet. Not only did it become the group's third release to bow in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200, but it also debuted at #1 on the Billboard Rock chart as well as #1 on the Physical album chart. Emperor of Sand was released to widespread praise:
 
"That Mastodon are capable of channeling personal tragedies into madcap sci-fi fantasy is impressive, but on Emperor Of Sand they finally harness their musical ambitions as well." – Pitchfork

"Their most ambitious album in years - Mastodon is one of the most beloved heavy bands on earth." - Rolling Stone Magazine

"A mature, provocative and at times genuinely beautiful piece of work, it demonstrates that Mastodon need bow to no-one, confirmed fans Metallica included, as peerless masters of their craft"
Kerrang! KKKK

"The music of Emperor Of Sand is an emotional statement in itself. Fury and invention coexist, and rage, while palpable, isn't the sole or dominant characteristic... metal that soars with authority and intellect. Emperor Of Sand stands as another arresting work by Mastodon, which may very well be contemporary metal's most compelling group." - Wall Street Journal

"Mastodon are one of our generation's greatest rock bands"
Classic Rock ****½

 Seasick Steve Gearing Up To Head Out On Tour.

Seasick SteveTuesday 23rd October 2018
Seasick Steve returns to the UK next month for his first full UK headline tour since 2015. Starting in Cambridge on Friday 9th November and finishing in Glasgow on the 21st, Steve's last UK headline show was at The SSE Arena, Wembley in 2016.

Having just completed a fantastic European tour before coming to the UK ("These are the BEST shows we've ever done and we're on fire as a band, really, we feel like the best live band in the world right now") Steve will release fan favourite The Last Rodeo as a single on November 16th.

Steve explains why the track is important: "That song –The Last Rodeo - it's very specific, it came to me. I was in a parking lot in Norway and a car hit me, not hard, but it hit me. And it was one of these electric cars. I thought: "Fuck me, I'm going to get killed by an electric car!" And then I went home and wrote 'Last Rodeo'.

ArchitectsTuesday 23rd October 2018
"I guess the biggest lesson I've learned, that's repeatedly come to me and actually underpins the whole meaning behind the record is that you can go through terrible things and come out as a better person at the other end of it," says ARCHITECTS drummer Dan Searle while bobbing in the Brighton seaside during the opening moments of "Holy Ghost", which you can watch - HERE

The documentary finds the British band discussing the events that have led up to the forthcoming release of their eighth album, Holy Hell (Nov. 9, Epitaph Records), From the indescribable loss of brother, guitar player and founding member Tom Searle, to the band member's recognition that their only path was forward, the 20-plus minute film features interviews, video from the recording of Holy Hell, as well as riveting, bittersweet footage from Architects' February 2018, sold out performance to 10,000 fans at London's Alexandra Palace.

The band have also released two tracks from the upcoming, 11-song album, both in video form: "Royal Beggars" (HERE) and "Hereafter" (HERE).

 All Time Low To Headline Slam Dunk Festival 2019.

SlamdunkTuesday 23rd October 2018
Delivering the ultimate one-day alternative festival celebration, Slam Dunk Festival is set to take a whole new stride into 2019 with its most ambitious and exciting weekend to date - lead by an incredible first wave of names and a huge move to Temple Newsam Park in Leeds.

Leading the charge as headliners in 2019, Baltimore favourites All Time Low truly stand apart as one of the biggest pop-punk bands on the planet. Across seven studio albums, their infectious blend of singalong anthems and beloved hooks have shone through - filling arenas and delivering again and again with a live show that has become a must-see for all. With seminal albums 'So Wrong, It's Right' and 'Nothing Personal' defining a generation, and latest album 'Last Young Renegade' marking an exciting new chapter for them, All Time Low's exclusive Slam Dunk headline shows will celebrate a game-changing band in their prime.

Frontman Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low said about their headline slot at Slam Dunk 2019:
"There's been a bit of an ATL drought in the UK recently so we thought it best to come back and tear shit up with some rad bands. Bring your life jackets."

Bringing over 25 years of punk history to Slam Dunk, NOFX are sure to prove why they stand as one of the most successful independent punk bands on the planet with a no-holds-barred set of adrenaline-fuelled favourites making their mark at the festival. Lead by the instantly recognisable voice of frontman Fat Mike, expect a trip down memory lane when NOFX take to the Slam Dunk stage. The "Godfathers Of Pop-Punk" themselves New Found Glory will make a hotly anticipated return to Slam Dunk in 2019, bringing the sort of arsenal of hits that'll have thousands ecstatic from start to finish. From 'My Friends Over You', 'Hit Or Miss' and 'Head On Collision' to 'Dressed To Kill', 'All Downhill From Here' and 'Kiss Me' - their set at Slam Dunk will prove why they remain untouchable at the top. Dazzling in technicolour, Waterparks have emerged as a true phenomenon in pop-punk over the past few years, bringing their infectious and fun-filled sound to stages across the world. Their second album 'Entertainment' stormed its way into hearts earlier this year, and their momentous moment at Slam Dunk 2019 is primed to be a celebration of a band embracing the future.

Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory said:
"We are the Michael Jordan of Slam Dunk. And we are coming to alley oop all our jams down your faces."

Waterparks frontman Awsten Knight said about Slam Dunk 2019:
"HELLO. WE ARE COMING BACK TO SLAM DUNK. YES. THIS IS ALL. VERY GOOD. SEE YA SOON."

After releasing their first new music in over seven years in 2017, Story Of The Year promise to be one of the most anticipated sets of the entire festival at Slam Dunk 2019. With a full-on live show, cuts from across their career will ring out large for the returning favourites - celebrating not only the past but the future of a band beloved by thousands. Another unmissable return that'll have festival-goers talking for months, Gallows will mark their next steps with a blistering comeback at Slam Dunk 2019. Lead by the imposing figure of Wade MacNeil, their debut album 'Orchestra Of Wolves' helped shape an entire generation of punk fans with its no-nonsense and anarchic take on modern rock. A live force, Slam Dunk will mark the perfect moment to see what comes next for a band ready to take on the world.

Story Of The Year's Ryan Phillips spoke about their upcoming Slam Dunk slot, saying:
"We are crazy stoked for Slam Dunk, especially since we haven't been to the UK in ages! We're itching to get over there and jam some tracks from our latest album "Wolves", so get ready to have your face melted off and have all of your beer drunk by us dummies".

Speaking about their return at Slam Dunk 2019, Laurent Barnard of Gallows said:
"We've tried to bury Gallows so many times, but the fucker just won't die. I guess we'll see you in May!"

Stuart Gili-Ross of Gallows also commented:
"Leeds & Hertfordshire. These will both feel like hometown shows for us. The time feels right for a Gallows show & we're coming in hot"

Slam Dunk ska favourites Mad Caddies will be making another celebrated stop this year, bringing their sun-kissed sounds to Leeds and Hatfield for another immediate display of how to start the good times. Also heading to Slam Dunk 2019 is Canadian rock titans Silverstein, set to serve a true lesson in post-hardcore power with a ground-shaking tour de force that needs to be seen to be believed.

Talking about their return to Slam Dunk, Silverstein said:
"We are excited to be returning to the UK in 2019 for the next instalment of Slam Dunk!  We originally played the festival way back in 2009 and have been looking forward to doing it again. Expect a jam packed set of old & new material."

After the huge success of Slam Dunk's move to Hatfield House last year, the festival has also announced plans for a new site for Slam Dunk North, moving to Leeds' Temple Newsam Estate so even more pop-punk fanatics can make their way to the definitive date of the alternative diary. Reaching across two stunning greenfield sites in Leeds and Hatfield on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May 2019 - Slam Dunk 2019 is the next evolution for the go-to destination of rock. 2018)

 Emigrate Release New Single.

EmigrateTuesday 23rd October 2018
F THERE’S a description that, personally and professionally, fits Richard Z. Kruspe like a Savile Row suit, ‘fired up’ would be it…
As a member of Rammstein, the music world’s most explosive live act, Kruspe has been part of a ground-breaking global success story that continues to build and to ignite; along the way, he’s turned his attention to a number of parallel projects, such as constructing a new studio (and a new home) in his native Berlin, but it’s his decision to launch the Emigrate set-up that has given him the greatest chance to satisfy creative instincts outside of the parent group. In many ways, it’s an anti-dote to the parent group!

The first Emigrate album appeared in 2007 (a self-titled record that went Top 10 in Germany, with single / video ‘My World’ appearing on the soundtrack to the third ‘Resident Evil’ movie); ‘Silent So Long’ followed in 2014, featuring guest vocals from such high-profile artists as Marilyn Manson, Jonathan Davis, Peaches and the legend that will always be Lemmy; and now there’s a new / third album, A Million Degrees, scheduled for worldwide release on November 30th

Featuring 11 tracks, a fresh production team plus vocal contributions from Rammstein’s Till Lindemann & Billy Talent’s Benjamin Kowalewicz this latest release is less a successor to ‘Silent So Long’ and more a re-booted take on the overall concept, continuing Kruspe’s desire to craft something personal. He writes the material, including new single / video ‘1234’ (spotlighting Kowalewicz), sings the bulk of the songs (in English) and works hard – sometimes in the face of adversity – to keep everything rubber-stamped as ‘special’, fashioning a body of work that will appeal to both existing supporters and those who appreciate the power of a great song delivered from heart above head…

 Bad Religion Release New Single 'The Profane Rights Of Man'.

RBad ReligionTuesday 23rd October 2018
Bad Religion have released a new single titled "The Profane Rights of Man." A worried look at the state of human rights in America, "The Profane Rights of Man" continues the band's long-held commitment to incisively topical songwriting.
 
Listen to "The Profane Rights of Man" by Bad Religion now

"The Profane Rights Of Man" featuring Bad Religion's signature breakneck rhythms, mournful harmonies, and serpentine guitar work, was produced by Brett Gurewitz and mixed by Gurewitz and Joe Barresi. The timely song is based on a historical document from 1789.

Vocalist and songwriter Greg Graffin explains, "The song is based on the 1789 document, "The Universal Rights of Man." Since we're a band that has a longstanding tradition of championing the enlightenment, we wanted to emphasize that our society is based on a profane rather than a sacred theological justification for human rights. In sum, the song is about Bad Religion's belief in a secular basis for the protection of human rights for all people."

Earlier this year Bad Religion released "The Kids Are Alt-Right," a "catchy and deeply satisfying melody-surge about new permutations of racism" as reported by Stereogum. They are currently in the studio working on new music.

Bad Religion began in the sprawling suburbs surrounding Los Angeles, with the teenage punks offering an impassioned counterpoint to a culture of consumerism and anti-intellectualism. Founding members Greg Graffin, Brett Gurewitz, and Jay Bentley were eventually joined by guitarists Brian Baker of Minor Threat, Mike Dimkich of The Cult, and the supremely talented drummer Jamie Miller of ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. Over the years, Bad Religion proved to be a major force in reinvigorating the modern punk movement, producing beloved international hits like "Infected," "21st Century (Digital Boy)," and "Sorrow," and building a devoted worldwide following.

 Asking Alexandria Release acoustic Video For 'Alone In A Room'.

Asking AlexandriaWednesday 10th October 2018
Asking Alexandria, one of the most streamed, downloaded, watched, and altogether listened to bands in a generation, have released a brand new video for the beautifully stripped down, acoustic version of their 3rd top ten US radio hit 'Alone In A Room' (currently #8 in the Active Rock charts). Watch it HERE

'Alone In A Room' is the second single to be taken from the band's eponymous 5th studio album (released via Sumerian Records). To date, 'Alone In A Room' has racked up a whopping 13.7 million streams on Spotify, 28 million global streams5 million YouTube Views and spent 5 weeks at #1 on Sirius XM's 'Big Uns' Countdown, as well as 5 weeks on the BBC Radio 1 playlist in the UK. The acoustic version of the track was released as a B side to the single and has received 765k streams to date. Speaking on the gorgeous new video and the acoustic reworking of 'Alone In A Room' Ben Bruce says: 
 
"In celebration of Alone in a Room smashing into the top 10 at radio this week we decided to record a video for our acoustic rendition of AIAR! This has been such an incredible album cycle for us so far and we have barely even started! Thank you all so much for your love and support. This is for us, this is for you! We love you!"

Made with producer Matt Good, Asking Alexandria's self-titled is an unbridled celebration of acceptance, of the strength of diversity and the freedom of “leaning into the crazy” (as Danny Worsnop puts it), instead of struggling for conformity. 

 Halestorm Release Video For 'Do Not Disturb'.

HalestormWednesday 10th October 2018
Grammy-winning band Halestorm today premiered a video for “Do Not Disturb,” the second single from their fourth album, Vicious, which debuted at #8 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and main U.K. Album Chart (as well as #1 U.S. Top Rock Album and Hard Music Album Charts & #1 U.K. Top Rock & Metal Album Chart). The video was directed by Roboshobo (Ghost’s “Rats” video).

’Do Not Disturb’ is based off a true story of mine about a very fun night I had overseas that all started with the pickup line, ‘I think we should make out,’” said frontwoman Lzzy Hale. “And since it’s October... the boys and I decided to spooky-up the story with a few…minor exaggerations.”

Called “a steamy, heavy barn burner” by Rolling Stone, “Do Not Disturb” follows the first single from Vicious, “Uncomfortable,” which reached #1 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Chart, Halestorm’s fourth, tying them with The Pretty Reckless for the most #1s by a female or female-led act.

The band recently wrapped up another sold out headline tour of the U.K., including London's O2 Brixton Academy where Live Nation presented the band with commemorative plaques, in honour of selling out every U.K. tour from 2012-2018.

Now on tour across Europe, come November Halestorm will start the third and final leg of their all female-led U.S.A. tour with In This Moment and New Years Day.

 Marillion Announce Massive 2019 UK Tour.

MarillionWednesday 10th October 2018
Marillion have announced that they will return to the road in the UK and Europe in 2019 with an extended line up of musicians joining the band.

The shows will feature the In Praise of Folly String Quartet plus Sam Morris on French Horn and Emma Halnan on Flute, featured on select numbers throughout the show as on previous occasions
In December 2017, Marillion played a sold-out show at The Royal Albert Hall which was the fastest selling concert of the bands career and featured this same ensemble of musicians who also featured on the UK tour in the spring of 2018. The concert at the Royal Albert hall was hailed by the fans and critics alike as ‘one of the best concerts in Marillion’s history’.  The recording of the show, “All One Tonight” has since been released on DVD, Blu-Ray, CD and vinyl and topped the charts in 5 countries.
Marillion will be playing songs spanning their 14 album-career with Steve Hogarth, as 2019 celebrates 30 years of him joining the band.

Steve Hogarth says: “Has it really been 30 years?! Steve R tells me it’s his 40th anniversary so it’s a double celebration! It’s amazing to be in this position after all this time. We’ve added this wonderful six-piece to the band for this entire tour. They’re brilliant players, good friends, and the chemistry we have together has already spoken for itself. I thought we’d never beat that night at RAH... but there’s going to be two nights and two different RAH set lists this time, so let’s see what we, and our legendary fans can do.

Tour Dates are:

 Blood Red Shoes Release Video For 'Mexican Dress'.

Blood Red ShoesWednesday 10th October 2018
Brighton duo BLOOD RED SHOES can today reveal their new video for single 'Mexican Dress' which is out now and can be viewed - HERE

The band will be releasing their new album 'Get Tragic', which features 'Mexican Dress' on January 25 2019, and also have a  set of launch shows in the UK and Europe in early 2019, including London Borderline on Sat 26th January.

Listen to 'Mexican Dress' - HERE
Pre-order 'Get Tragic' - HERE
Tickets can be purchased - HERE

The story of 'Get Tragic' can be traced way back to the relentless gigging off the back of their 2014 self-produced and self-titled record, when the heels finally fell off of Blood Red Shoes at the end of that same year. A near-decade of incessant road time and a non-stop pace of life finally took its toll, with the band stopping only to quickly hammer out "another ten songs" to release as their next record, before ploughing straight back into touring. The pair exhausted themselves to the point of collapse. "We didn't, at any point, have a breather," says Steven Ansel (drums and vocals), "We probably didn't see each other for about 10 days a year, tops, for six or seven years." Understandably, such incessant close proximity led to implosion. "We got the to the end of the fourth record and were like, 'F**k you, I never want to see you again',"Steven adds, half-laughing, half-sighing.

Vocalist and guitarist Laura Mary-Carter packed her bags and bought a one-way flight to Los Angeles, a complete radio-silence between the two bandmates stretching on for months. She fell in with a songwriter's crowd, penning tracks and collaborations with big-time pop producers and pitching songs for the likes of Rihanna. It provided her with "a lot of time to reassess,"she says. Steven, conversely, "went out and took drugs and went clubbing for about half a year," he laughs. "I don't remember a lot about it. Classic break-up move, right?"

"That's the whole running theme of this record," says Steven. "The reason we called it Get Tragic is because we realised that everything we've been doing over the last three years is kinda tragic!" he says, prompting laughter from the pair. "Just like, 'Ooh, I hate you, I'm going to America to find myself', and like 'Ooh, I'm gonna party for the rest of the year!' Everything about it is such a cliché – we were like, 'We've turned into a f**kin tragedy!'"

'Get Tragic', then, fully embraces the absurdity of BLOOD RED SHOES situation. As a result, the pair come out the other side sounding fresher and more assured than ever. Recording in the States, working with a new producer, ditching the two-piece rock rulebook they arguably helped write - everything that went into Get Tragic was a leap into the unknown. Their first move, post-reconciliation was a writing retreat in rural Wales, which saw them woken up by the village community leaders, who entered the house while they were sleeping and banished them from town, fearful of the rock group's proximity to the local church.

Regrouping once more and booking in some more sessions in Leeds, Steven took a phone call a few days before round two. Laura had broken her arm. "I fell off a motorbike," she explains. "I didn't tell anyone – I didn't post anything about it, but the fact is I had a broken arm for a long time." Throughout it all, they went through a conveyor belt of managers and manager firings, the group falling out with everyone around them as they attempted to rebuild their core, two-way relationship. One of those managers "led us into a record deal that was really fucked, and we shouldn't have signed," explains Steven. The subsequent fallout and legal trouble financially crippled them both. As that period came to a close, Laura went through a romantic break-up that still visibly affects her. "We were finally getting there," says Laura, "and I was like, 'No... don't let this happen too...'."

Remarkably, though, Laura's broken arm proved to be a blessing in plaster-clad disguise. Leaving her unable to play guitar, it prompted the longtime-guitarist to pick up a keyboard, and sing more than she ever had before. Through mishap and misfortune, the songs that came out of the sessions were the duo's light at the end of the ever-expanding tunnel. They decamped to L.A. to record with Nick Launay (Yeah Yeah Yeahs / Arcade Fire / Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds). He pushed them to explore these new worlds even further, and as such the the after-effects of Laura's motorbike tragedy can be heard throughout 'Get Tragic' – more melodic and synth-led than any of the band's records to date, it embraces electronics and nuance in a way their stripped-back and stomping two-piece rock sound of old never could have.

"That was where it started to make sense," says Steven. "It was like, 'How do we combine our songwriting with electronics and keyboards?' We wanted to have the soul of a rock band, but change the style so it was more interesting, more groovy, and more sexy – and less like everybody else! I started to feel like all rock music around us was one shade of one colour." Laura agrees: "I really find the music industry, and just culture in general, has a sheep mentality. Like, 'Is it okay to like this?' You just need to have a mind of your own. Whether people like it or not, we're at least trying to do something that isn't 'of the moment' or whatever."

Through disaster and dismay, the band have emerged reinvigorated. Every incident has fed into a record of defiance and self-acceptance. Knowingly embracing the tragedy of their movements, and the clarity at the end of such woe – they even laugh at the very idea of having a picture of themselves on the cover – 'Get Tragic' is a total reimagining of the
BLOOD RED SHOES you might think you know.

 Chthonic Release New Music Video.

ChthonicWednesday 10th October 2018
CHTHONIC have released "A Crimson Sky's Command", the second track from their latest album, "Battlefields of Asura". Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/ltA0HojnmD4

Earlier on in March, CHTHONIC performed the song in public for the first time at one of the biggest music festivals in Taiwan - Megaport Music Festival. The symphonic melody immediately resonates with the fans; one of the fans even covered and uploaded the refrain right after the show. For the music video, CHTHONIC used clips from their performance at Megaport Festival and blended it with the bold and vigorous calligraphic elements. 

Many tracks in CHTHONIC's new album Battlefields of Asura are associated with different Taiwanese gods and goddesses. A Crimson Sky's Command is one of them and was inspired by the god of war “Te-ia-kong”, or “Xuantian Shangdi” in Mandarin. Since it’s about the god of war, the lyrics naturally take on the warpath and aggressiveness. However, Freddy stated that on top of the imagery at the face value, it also represents the courage we need to face, confront and overcome our own weakness. 

CHTHONIC's first album in 5 years is going to drop on October 12th in Europe and the US. Different merchandise will also come out in different areas, including Taiwan, Japan, Europe and the US:
 
 

 Bloodstock Open Air Announces Six More Bands For 2019 Festival.

Bloodstock Open AirWednesday 10th October 2018
As Halloween creeps up, BLOODSTOCK has prepared an early treat and announced six new bands to join their previously announced Friday night headliner, SABATON on the 2019 bill at Catton Park.

CHILDREN OF BODOM land a Friday spot on the Ronnie James Dio main stage in a UK exclusive.  The band entered Danger Johnny Studios with producer Mikko Karmila earlier this year to work on a new studio album, due for release in 2019, following 2015's devilishly good 'I Worship Chaos'.  See the video for 'Morrigan' from that album at: https://youtu.be/jm3kDrBTlt8.

CRADLE OF FILTH return to Catton Park's main stage on Saturday. The British hellfiends are no strangers to our hallowed ground and we're keenly expecting both tricks and treats aplenty.  Lead Cenobite Dani Filth had this to say about returning to BLOODSTOCK; "Obviously we want to finish what we started ten years ago, that is to finish our set!  And for that alone we are really, really looking forward to bringing a massive Cradle show back to the BLOODSTOCK fans.  We f**king can't wait!"  Meanwhile, watch the video for 'Heartbreak And Seance' at https://youtu.be/DNRIaeg6EyY, taken from their gothic horror-infused twelfth album, 'Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness of Decay'.

SOILWORK also pick up a Sunday slot in a UK festival exclusive.  The Swedish metallers are currently hard at work in the studio brewing their eleventh studio album and the follow up to 2015's acclaimed 'The Ride Majestic'.  Check out the band blazing through 'This Momentary Bliss' (taken from their 'Live In The Heart of Helskini' DVD) here; https://youtu.be/3RsAF6r3gQw.

BLOODSTOCKers will be able to see the inimitable DEE SNIDER on Sunday's main stage!  The Twisted Sister frontman's recent solo album, 'For The Love Of Metal' was the result of a challenge issued by Hatebreed frontman (and BOA favourite!) Jamey Jasta!  Whilst appearing on Jasta's podcast, Jamey told Dee that he ought to make a "true metal album" and he wanted to produce! The project forged ahead, picking up numerous plaudits on release earlier this year.  Check out the video for 'Become The Storm' - https://youtu.be/hljBz0zTEKQ - for a glimpse of what's in store!

We also welcome QUEENSRYCHE to the main stage on Sunday.  The Todd La Torre-fronted outfit are putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming new album too and are giving PledgeMusic supporters an early taste!  Head over to https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/queensryche2 to sink your teeth in and get your claws on all kinds of special pre-order bundles.

Lastly, but definitely not least, Swedish death metal luminaries HYPOCRISY join us on Sunday!  With Peter Tägtgren at their helm, the band released their first record back in 1992 and have released 11 more since.  The band enter the studio in January 2019 to create a new masterpiece, their first since 2013's, 'End Of Disclosure'.  Watch the video for that title track at https://youtu.be/MJsdZ2FR3WM.

Standard weekend tickets are also currently available at 'early bird' prices (just £132 for four days of metal fun), so grab yours now at the ticket store - http://bloodstock.seetickets.com - if you want to save a few quid.  Camper van passes are also available in limited quantities, but be quick, over half the available spaces have sold already!

For those who want their VIP spot guaranteed, BLOODSTOCK's first wave of 2019 Serpents Lair VIP tickets are also available, priced at £290.  A second wave, including the Deluxe VIP packages (Luxpads, Bellepads, Podpads, etc) and a limited amount of VIP upgrades (for those who've already purchased standard weekend tickets) will then become available on 16th December at 9am.  For full details click to http://www.bloodstock.uk.com/pages/vip-camping.

We trialled the deposit scheme for VIP tickets in 2018, but please note, there will be NO DEPOSIT SCHEME for VIP tickets this year.  

BLOODSTOCK will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 8th-11th August 2019.  Get additional information over at www.bloodstock.uk.com.

 Stiff Little Fingers Announce March 2019 UK Tour.

Stiff Little FingersSundya 7th October 2018
Stiff Little Fingers are pleased to announce a 14-date headline tour in March 2019, including the traditional date in Glasgow's iconic venue Barrowland Ballroom on 17th March.

With a career spanning over more than 40th years, Stiff Little Fingers' live shows always become something special, a unique event that never disappoints and the annual spellbinding St. Patrick's day performance in Glasgow's Barrowland Ballroom keeps proving just that. Due to phenomenal demand in last couple of years a second Barrowland's show was added next year, on Saturday 16th March, to make a "St. Patrick's Day Weekend" and this has already sold out!

2019 Celebrates 40 years of the band's iconic debut album 'Inflammable Material'. Released Feb 2nd 1979, Inflammable Material features the legendary tracks 'Suspect Device' and 'Alternative Ulster'.

In recent years the band have played incredible live shows, including: two years of headline sold out hometown shows in Belfast's Custom House Square and London's Hyde Park Show with Green Day.

Formed in 1977 in Belfast Stiff Little Fingers were among some of the pioneers of punk rock. Joining ranks with the likes of The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Damned, Buzzcocks, and Undertones they brought in a new era of music. Their music was a culmination of their own experiences and the political strife they witnessed, growing up at the height of "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland, from this many notable songs forth came, including "Suspect Device" and "Alternative Ulster". These were the first of what became SLF's signature style: lyrics that meld the personal and political, music that combines the energy of punk with infectious hooks, and a delivery that rings of honesty and commitment. It's this raw edge that defines the band and their continued vulnerability is what makes their music so relatable – allowing them to draw back fans time and time again.

 Amon Amarth To Release New Documentary.

Amon AmarthSunday 7th October 2018
On November 16th, Amon Amarth will release their new documentary and supporting live album, The Pursuit Of Vikings: 25 Years In The Eye Of The Storm - which includes a retrospective documentary featuring a wealth of live and behind-the-scenes content and extensive band interviews. This film, produced by Alexander Milas and directed by Phil Wallis, tells the Swedish quintet's history, through both their own eyes and those of the fans that have supported them along the way. UK fans will spot some clips from Bloodstock 2017, when the band were one of the festival's headliners. It is a thrilling collection that pays respect to the faithful, as well as making for a detailed and riveting introduction for those new to their inspiring story. Paired with this documentary is the live video/audio, which contains two different sets at 2017's Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbühl, Germany, capturing the unit at their very best.

Having played the German festival numerous times over the years, and loving the family vibe they have always experienced there, Amon Amarth leapt at the chance to appear twice in the same year. Playing a secret, smaller scale set that focused primarily on older material, and then headlining the main stage with full production - including their giant sea serpent and lots of fire - allowed them to showcase their songs at their best - though putting together setlists from such a mighty catalogue was not the easiest of tasks. "For the first night, we wanted to write a set that the fans would enjoy by wholly diving into our back catalogue but also keeping it interesting," explains guitarist Olavi Mikkonen. "But putting the two shows together also made us realise that we have a lot of songs to choose from!"

Boasting 15 songs over 78 minutes, THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES marks Coheed and Cambria’s furious return to concept albums, the ‘First Act’ in a brand-new story arc set within the backdrop of The Amory Wars universe. The LP was heralded earlier this summer with the arrival of its title track, “Unheavenly Creatures,” joined by an official music video, directed by P.R. Brown. “Unheavenly Creatures” takes viewers inside the story's opening chapters where two captured criminals (Creature and Colossus) being walked through a ship on their way towards judgement for crimes committed against society, and perhaps, one another. The video premiered via an exclusive interview with Sanchez at Marvel.com; Sanchez also joined Marvel’s weekly podcast, “This Week In Marvel,” for an extended discussion of THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES and much more.

Coheed and Cambria made their long-awaited return this spring with the arrival of “The Dark Sentencer,” the first new music to be released by the band since their acclaimed 2015 LP, The Color Before The Sun. Leaked to fans by Sanchez along with the opening paragraphs from the album’s aforementioned novella, the 10-minute prog manifesto made global impact with Revolver declaring, “The soaring song with its rolling guitar riff could soundtrack the montage to any intergalactic underdog story.

 Gary Numan Announces 'The Fallen EP'.

Gary NumanSunday 7th October 2018
Gary Numan has today announced the release of 'The Fallen EP' on November 9th. 'The Fallen EP' consists of 3 new tracks 'It Will End Here', 'The Promise' and 'If We Had Known'. It will be available as a Special Edition Tricolour 12" vinyl, digitally and on CD through the artist store; www.GaryNuman.com.

As well as 'The Fallen EP', Gary will also release a new live album 'Savage, Live At Brixton Academy' on the same date. It's a 3 disc deluxe album offering consisting of 2 audio CD's and concert DVD.

Gary previously announced a string of UK dates for November 2018 with The Skaparis Orchestra, including a date at the Royal Albert Hall, London which sold out in a few hours. See full tour dates below.

Gary Numan's current album 'Savage: Songs From A Broken World', was released in September last year through BMG and earned the best reviews of Gary's career. He entered the UK charts at No.2, a fantastic achievement for the iconic and highly influential artist. The British electro pioneer was also awarded the Inspiration Award for songwriting and composition at the Ivor Novellos last year and has been receiving outstanding live reviews proving that he is on fine form. Now, the tour will take a surprisingly elegant turn when Gary Numan and his band are joined by The Skaparis Orchestra for 7 exclusive shows. With orchestral concerts taking place in Cardiff, Birmingham, Newcastle, Manchester, London and Glasgow, the shows will feature songs drawn not only from his highly successful 'Savage' album, but also key songs from his vast back catalogue.

Gary Numan's music has always had a filmic quality but with The Skaparis Orchestra joining his regular band, that mix of hard electronic and soaring cinematic atmosphere will finally come fully to life. Gary will also be showcasing the most extravagant light show he's taken on the road for over three decades, designed specifically for these special orchestral performances. 

'Savage, Live At Brixton Academy' is out November 9th. See track listing below;

 Papa Roach Release New Music From Forthcoming 10th Studio Album.

Papa RoachSunday 7th October 2018
Papa Roach released two new songs from their forthcoming [as yet untitled] 10th studio album, "Renegade Music." and "Who Do You Trust?", plus the official music video for the first single "Who Do You Trust?"

The tracks see Papa Roach continuing to push their momentum with bona-fide rock anthems and fearsome hooks. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix explains, "This song is a statement of engagement - In this day and age, who do you trust? The message of the song is to think for yourself and to trust in yourself, and the imagery of the song matches that. It's the sea of information, all of if slightly out of focus - and you're left floating in trying to decide for yourself. Who do you trust?"

"Papa Roach are back with two more anthemic bangers to add to their arsenal", muses Allison Hagendorf, Spotify's Global Head of Music, about the tracks.

Papa Roach have been praised by their peers in the rock world for achieving an "unlikely comeback", with two decades of continued success and a career resurgence with their 2017 release, Crooked Teeth, which debuted in the Top 20 on the US, UK and Australian charts.  Loudwire explains, "[Papa Roach] are entering a new era of their career. Whereas a multitude of their former counterparts have either become nostalgia acts or fallen off the grid entirely, Papa Roach are finding ways to reverse their trajectory...The sky is the limit for a band who play their cards right and are willing to kick down a few walls."
 
Papa Roach have kicked off a mini tour starting today in Richmond, VA, hitting ten cities across North and Latin America, before setting out on a December tour to various military bases in Asia.  The band will also be joining Shinedown and Asking Alexandria on the 2019 North American leg of the Attention! Attention! World Tour.  Additional international tour dates to be announced soon.  For tickets, VIP packages and more information, visit www.paparoach.com.

 Imagine Dragons To Release New Album 'Origins' On The 9th November.

Imagine DragonsThursday 4th October 2018
Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning band Imagine Dragons will release their fourth studio album, entitled ORIGINS, on November 9th via KIDinaKORNER/Polydor Records. The album is available for pre-order HERE. Those who pre-order will receive instant downloads of two Origins tracks: the band's worldwide smash "Natural,"and "Zero," from Walt Disney Animation Studios'film Ralph Breaks The Internet. Watch the video for "Natural" HERE. Listen to "Zero" HERE.  

Origins was conceived as a sister album to Evolve continuing its predecessor's sonic explorations. "It's about seeking new ground but also appreciating your roots," says lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, whose bandmates include guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman. "When we create, we create with no boundaries, no rules. We find it thrilling to make music that feels different and new to us."

Imagine Dragons joined forces with producers Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid), Mattman & Robin (Selena Gomez, Carly Rae Jepsen), and John Hill (Florence + the Machine) to sculpt the kaleidoscopic and kinetically charged sound of Origins. With the band artfully blending rock, hip-hop, pop, and folk, the album is etched in inventive textures that never distract from an essential element of Imagine Dragons: lyrics that speak to a sometimes-painful self-awareness, but ultimately uplift and inspire.

Origins will be released 16 months after Imagine Dragons' previous album, Evolve, which is certified Gold in the UK and entered the chart at #3, and is now certified double platinum in the US. Evolve was nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned three huge hits: "Believer," "Thunder,"which scored a Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Grammy nomination; and "Whatever It Takes".  Imagine Dragons is the eighth most-listened-to artist globally on Spotify with over 40 million monthly listeners.

From: The Royal Department of Government Approved Freedom of Press
To: Whomever it may concern

03 October in the year of the King (2018): Citizens! It is yet another great day for Avatar Country and therefore the world. As the King’s Harvest is growing richer, the coming year of the King is bound to be the greatest on record!

The Department of Informing the Citizens of the Kingdom (D.I.C.K.) is thrilled and intimately tickled as they get to be bearer of the good news that AVATAR ARE HITTING EUROPE FOR A HEADLINE TOUR IN 2019!

Directly from the Royal Mouth of the Horse Spreading Gossip, we have the following tidbit:

”The King is eternal. Avatar Country is endless. But album cycles come and go. Even though legends never die, sagas sometimes must end. We are not there quite yet, but we’re closer than ever. As dark forces slowly cloud our minds, we urge you to join us in the celebration of Avatar Country before the door closes to the kingdom and we wander on to new unexplored territories. Join us and let’s make this one for the ages!”

AVATAR will return to Europe in continued support of their newest LP, "Avatar Country". This will be the band's second full scale European run for this album cycle, which also has taken them on multiple trips to North America during the spring of 2018 and across all of Europe for extremely successful festival dates over the summer.

 architects Release New Video 'Royal Beggars'.

ArchitectsThursday 4th October 2018
righton 5 piece ARCHITECTS, who recently announced the release of their eighth album, 'Holy Hell' out November 9th, have unveiled the second video from the 11-song album: "Royal Beggars"

ARCHITECTS debut 'Royal Beggars' video - HERE

The Lewis Cater-directed video is the second song to preview the eagerly-awaited return from "one of Britain's finest metal bands" (The Independent). Simultaneous with news of Holy Hell's forthcoming release, Architects offered a video for "Hereafter" which Revolver said featured Sam Carter's "most furious vocals to date," and Louder Sound described as "bursting with the technical prowess and pure, emotive energy that has been their hallmark for over a decade."

'Holy Hell' marks the band's first release since the untimely passing of Tom Searle, Architect's founding guitarist, principal songwriter and twin brother to drummer Dan. "In those first months after Tom's death, I didn't deal with it at all and I felt so unhappy and anxious," Dan explains. "I'd ignored it and just tried to cope. But I knew that at some point, I had to learn from it."

Album pre-orders, including physical bundles featuring vinyl and various merchandise, as well as digital pre-orders offering instant downloads of "Hereafter" are available via the band's website (HERE).

The band have recently announced their biggest-ever European/UK tour, taking place in January and February 2019. The band will be playing several arenas, including Wembley SSE Arena in London, Lotto Arena in Antwerp, Mitsubishi-Electric-Halle in Dusseldorf, as well as the biggest venues they've played in Europe so far. Before this tour, they be heading to Russia and Ukraine for three shows in December this year. Please see below for the full list of UK dates. Tickets are on sale now

 Evanescence To Release Live DVD On The 12th Ocotber.

EvanescenceThursday 4th October 2018
On 12 October 2018, Evanescence will be releasing 'Synthesis Live' on DVD, Blu-ray, DVD+CD, Blu-Ray+CD set and digital video via Eagle Vision.

Recorded late last Autumn during the band's critically-acclaimed Synthesis tour, the concert was captured in state-of-the-art 4K by director P.R. Brown & produced by Craig Ziogas/CTGS Productions.

The songs span Evanescence's 20-year history to date, reinvented with a full orchestra over a deep electronic landscape. Synthesis is a soulful and sweepingly grandiose event to witness live.  Seated at the piano, Amy Lee opens the set with a single note that builds into the instrumental Overture, seamlessly leading into the crushing wave that is Never Go Back.
Bring Me To Life, the anthem that lead many people to discover Evanescence, reaches a new level of power and emotion with a pounding, electric heartbeat and soaring orchestral accompaniment, while songs like My Immortal, Lithium and Lost in Paradise evoke heartbreaking scenes from a beautiful, timeless film.

Amy Lee's incredible vocal range and the group's expressive, multi-layered music naturally lends itself to orchestral accompaniment, shining a light on the singular beauty of the arrangements by composer David Campbell and conductor Susie Seiter creating a truly dynamic, cinematic sound.  Lee has called this, 'a passion project', which undoubtedly shines through. The sense of occasion is not lost on the band or audience alike in this unique and highly emotive show.

Evanescence recently took their Synthesis live tour around the world, delivering highly-acclaimed performances throughout Europe, North America and Australia. This summer, the band teamed with violinist Lindsey Stirling on a tour of North American amphitheatres - one of Live Nation's Top 10 tours of the summer.

"The majesty of Ms. Lee accompanied by Mr. Campbell's arrangements was undeniable."
– Wall Street Journal

"Amy Lee firmly re-establishes herself as one of rock's pre-eminent vocalists, exhibiting an impressive range that still packs a wallop, this time cutting through a full orchestra." – Variety

"A fresh symphonic approach to Evanescence's lauded music....genuinely immersive"Kerrang

"Synthesis works magnificently live" - Metal Hammer

 Mewithoutyou Stream New Album.

MewithoutYouThursday 4th October 2018
Genre-defying innovators mewithoutYou are releasing their seventh full-length, '[Untitled]', this Friday, October 5th on Big Scary Monsters. To celebrate, the band have made the album available early to stream in full and purchase for $5 on Bandcamp. In classic mewithoutYou form, '[Untitled]' is many things at once, pushing fearlessly into new sonic and lyrical territory while also pulling elements from their past. The result is an album that seamlessly blends a litany of styles and sounds into something that can only be described as mewithoutYou. Frontman Aaron Weiss digs deep throughout the album, once again providing the stunningly intricate lyrics for which mewithoutYou is known--always searching himself and the world around him for a better understanding.

Stream/Purchase '[Untitled]' album via Bandcamp:
https://mewithoutyou.bandcamp.com/album/untitled

Listen to '[untitled]' EP:
https://open.spotify.com/album/4KJzRZpr4c3ElgMlWaA43K?si=cx-P-JAfRZGpcQrduolZww

Since their formation in 2001, mewithoutYou have never stopped moving forward. Across six full-length albums and a handful of EPs, the Philadelphia band—who have been labeled everything from experimental punk to post-hardcore to indie rock—have always put a premium on progression, never anchoring themselves to a single sound and instead gracefully wandering across stylistic lines. It's that same spirit that informs both '[Untitled]' and the '[untitled]' e.p., a companion piece that was surprise released just last month. 

 Hollywood Undead Announce 2019 UK Tour.

 Silverstein Release Two New Acoustic Videos.

SilversteinThursday 4th October 2018
Ontario, Canada's post-hardcore heavyweights, Silverstein have released acoustic renditions of their songs "The Afterglow" and "Aquamarine."

You can listen to 'The Afterglow' here
You can listen to 'Aquamarine' here
A physical 7" version of the stripped down and beautifully stark songs is available for purchase here.

The original versions of both of these tracks appear on the band's latest albumDead Reflection, out now on Rise Records.

"We love Dead Reflection so much and didn't want to do some half-baked, phoned-in acoustic versions," said singer Shane Told. "So we actually got Derek Hoffman back at the helm and spent the time to really honor these songs and make truly special versions of them."
 
He continued, "It's not easy to take a screaming heavy hardcore part and turn it into a reflective emotional part that your Mom would be into — but we love that challenge. It's cool to see a song that's only ever been thought of one way in a completely different light."
  
Additionally, Silverstein will embark on a Euro tour this autumn co-headling with Anti-Flag. 

You can see Silverstein at the following dates:

11th October: Flex, Wien 
12th October Alter Schlachthof, Als 
13th October Rockhouse, Salzburg
14th October Meet Factory, Prague
16th October Hannover, Pavillion
18th October SO36, Berlin

Nathan James says"I cannot believe we get to play THE Shepherds Bush Empire on this tour! one of my favourite venues of all time. I'm so excited to share this new album with everyone as well as the big tunes from our first and second albums."

The band have spent 2018 locked away recording their forthcoming studio album 'Ride to Nowhere', again mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). The first music from the album is set for release imminently, in late 2018, with the full album release coming in early 2019. The album will be released through Frontiers Music Srl.

2017's "Inglorious II" further enhanced the standing of this remarkable band. From the body blow riffs of "Read All About It," to the beautiful melodies of the first single "I Don't Need Your Loving", from the groove of "High Class Woman" to the classic feeling ballad "Making Me Pay", it was an album that showed the bands influences stem from iconic rock and roll shrine of rock albums from the 1970s – many years before the band members were born – merged with a truly contemporary feel. Driving riffs and instant melodies all overlaid with the unique and powerful vocals of Nathan James. Inglorious are one of the most exciting and vital UK rock acts to emerge in years.

Late 2018 will also see Nathan James star in "Jeff Wayne's The War Of the Worlds" as "The Voice Of Humanity" – he was personally picked by Wayne for the role. The version will run throughout the UK in November and December www.waroftheworlds.com

 City And Colour To Release New Album In November.

City And ColourThursday 27th September 2018
City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, has launched a new label called Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records. The first official release is a very special live City and Colour album, Guide Me Back Home, to be released digitally on October 5th with physical product available November 23rd. The album was recorded during 2017's sold-out "An Evening with City and Colour - Solo" Canadian tour where Green performed serene, stripped-down iterations of songs spanning his award-winning catalogue in an intimate theatre environment. The tour covered 25 cities from coast-to-coast.

Green worked with Plus1 to collect $1 from each ticket sold during the 2017 tour to benefit MusiCounts. In the same spirit, $1 from the sale of each Guide Me Back Home album worldwide will be donated to MusiCounts.
Guide Me Back Home is a beautifully recorded and meticulously curated 21-song album, produced by long-time friend Karl Bareham. Green says, "It's more than just a live record to me. It is my love letter to Canada."  Along with a digital release, a special 3xLP vinyl set will be available, housed in a triple gatefold jacket and featuring the photography of Vanessa Heins and a handwritten note from Dallas about this special tour. Fans will have the option to purchase the record in limited edition colour variants. The official artist store will feature a limited edition colour variant in Bone and Orange Swirl, limited to 1800 units, exclusive to the City and Colour webstore. Fans will be able to purchase newly designed merchandise created for the release. Two additional limited colour vinyl options will be available from Dine Alone Records and select retailers worldwide. A standard edition black will be widely available as well. Fans who pre-order the vinyl HERE will also receive a digital download as of October 5th.

In 2016, as the support cycle for 2015's #1 album If I Should Go Before You was winding down, a mentally and physically exhausted Green was watching the "madness" surrounding the U.S. presidential election unfold from his home in Nashville. That's when the highways of his homeland started calling out to him. "I felt like I needed to go see more of the country I'm from – to explore it more deeply and play for people who've travelled to see me over the years a little closer to where they might be from, and maybe find some new people that might be willing to listen, too."
About starting Still Records, says Green, "I see Still Records as a way to draw attention to projects that are important to me. Dine Alone was started to put out my first album, and it's been very successful and grown into something really special since then. Still Records is an extension on those ideals and a place where I'm able to curate a collection of things that I think deserve to be heard and enjoyed."

City and Colour, the moniker of singer-songwriter Dallas Green, is undeniably one of the biggest groundswell stories to emerge from Canada. With 3 JUNO Awards under his belt -- including two SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR awards (2009, 2012), 3 Double Platinum and 1 Platinum-selling studio album in Canada, Green's latest and 5th studio album If I Should Go Before You debuted #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan, City and Colour's third consecutive chart-topper in Canada. In 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project titled You+Me. The duo's acclaimed Platinum-certified debut, rose ave., debuted at #4 on the U.S. Top 200 Chart, #1 in Canada, #2 in Australia culminating in memorable performances on The Ellen Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

In addition to widespread commercial success, If I Should Go Before Youreceived critical acclaim from notable international media. As part of Alexisonfire, Green released four Platinum-certified studio albums, Alexisonfire (2002), Watch Out (2004), Crisis (2006), and Old Crows / Young Cardinals (2009). Crisis debuted at #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan chart (Canada), and Old Crows / Young Cardinals debuted at #2, and charted at #9 on the US Billboard Independent Album chart. City and Colour has performed to sold-out crowds across the U.S. and headlined his first arena tour across Canada, including 2 dates at Molson Canadian Amphitheatre (now Budweiser Stage) in Toronto.

The LP was heralded earlier this summer with the arrival of its title track, “Unheavenly Creatures,” joined by an official music video, directed by P.R. Brown. “Unheavenly Creatures” takes viewers inside the story's opening chapters where two captured criminals (Creature and Colossus) being walked through a ship on their way towards judgement for crimes committed against society, and perhaps, one another. The video premiered via an exclusive interview with Sanchez at Marvel.com; Sanchez also joined Marvel’s weekly podcast, “This Week In Marvel,” for an extended discussion of THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES and much more.

Coheed and Cambria made their long-awaited return this spring with the arrival of “The Dark Sentencer,” the first new music to be released by the band since their acclaimed 2015 LP, The Color Before The Sun. Leaked to fans by Sanchez along with the opening paragraphs from the album’s aforementioned novella, the 10-minute prog manifesto made global impact with Revolver declaring, “The soaring song with its rolling guitar riff could soundtrack the montage to any intergalactic underdog story.

 Hellions To Release Fourth Studio Album 'Rue' On the 19th October.

Eluveitie Re-sign To Nuclear Blast RecordsMWednesday 26th September 2018
Nuclear Blast Records is proud to anounce, that the Swiss folk metal stars ELUVEITIE have signed a new record deal with the German based label.

Over ten years ago, in November 2007, the unknown Swiss folk-metal newcomers ELUVEITIE signed their first contract with Nuclear Blast and became an internationally successful act, with the release of their label debut »SLANIA«.
Five more incredibly successful studio albums followed and now the band have signed a new deal with the label so that the formidable pairing can continue to produce even more greatness.

Mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann states:
"Ok, this sounds like one of these "official statements" you're asked for, these things "you're supposed to say".
But it's really not like this. We really mean this from all our hearts: We're super fucking happy to announce this! To be signed to Nuclear Blast was our dream back in the day (when we were recording "Vên" and "Spirit"), because we thought it's just the best and coolest label in metal music. And then it happended: We got signed by Nuclear Blast some years later.
The amazing thing today: After ten fucking years of working together, nothing of this opinion changed!
We know, there's a lot of kids around, blaming Nuclear Blast for being a "big company", for "being commercial and mainstream", etc.
But let us tell you - each single person working at Nuclear Blast we got to know over the years (which is nearly all of them meanwhile) works there, because of his or her passion for music, for metal! Each single one of them is a fucking idealist and believes in metal music!
This is a place where Eluveitie belongs! To metal!
Today our collaboration with Nuclear Blast is not business-like, really. It's working together with friends, we know, respect and like on a personal level.
And this is why we're really happy and also proud to announce this common desicion!"

Markus Staiger adds:
"We are very happy that Eluveitie and Nuclear Blast Records can continue as a team. Eluveitie became a very big success of our label and everyone in the band, their management and crew also became trustful and close friends. For us, it is a pleasure to work with such highly gifted musicians.
Never change a winning team!"

ELUVEITIE released their second studio album Slania over a decade ago and to celebrate, the band have announced a very special anniversary edition of this masterpiece. »SLANIA - 10 Years« includes a raft of bonus tracks, including demos and acoustic versions, and will be released on November 16th via Nuclear Blast Records.

 Toothgrinder Cover Fleetwood Mac's 'The Chain'.

ToothgrinderThursday 27th September 2018
New Jersey noisemakers Toothgrinder have released their cover of Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain." Listen here.  - https://toothgrinder.lnk.to/FpGML

"As a child, my father's three favorite groups were Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Fleetwood Mac, and The Allman Brothers," said singer Justin Matthews. "I grew accustomed to southern rock from an early age. As a lyricist, I subconsciously write in that frame of mind. I LOVE a good story written through song. Fleetwood Mac in particular has always held a special place in my heart."

The singer put things in perspective and further revealed how Fleetwood Mac impacted his process as a lyricist, saying, "During the making of Phantom Amour, I needed a break from the recording process to go clear my head. I cruised down to Luray, Virginia through the skyline drive to get some perspective on what I was doing. I parked myself on a stool at an Irish pub somewhere in town. Half in the bag, I listened to Fleetwood Mac's 'The Chain.' I then began writing the lyrics to our ballad 'Jubilee.' There is something about associating music with my surroundings that has always captivated me. Music to me has always seemed like a fantastical theme song to a particular point in time. I wanted to pay homage to the legends that helped me write my favorite and most personal song yet." 

He finished, "Considering the impact Fleetwood Mac had on the Phantom Amour writing process, 'The Chain' was the obvious choice. It has this beautiful twang that is so far from anything we have ever done, that I wanted to capture that as well as we could. I hope we did it justice, and without a doubt I am extremely grateful we had an opportunity to do something like this. Gratitude is everything."

 Hellions To Release Fourth Studio Album 'Rue' On the 19th October.

HellionsMWednesday 26th September 2018
To celebrate Hellions long-awaited fourth album Rue on October 19 via UNFD, the band have revealed the video for their current single "Smile". The song is a dynamic, upbeat tune built around the refrain 'I'm ready to run, are you ready?' that provides a tongue-in-cheek look at the depth of our interactions in the digital age.

Revered for their explosive live shows, Hellions will bring their splendour and riotous joy to intimate rooms in  Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney for three exclusive release week that will showcase songs from Rue - their widescreen, technicolour masterpiece. Hellions will release a limited-edition vinyl variant of Rue exclusive to this tour. Tickets on sale now from hellionsmusic.com

"Our Director, Aimee-Lee X. Curran, her crew and our cast really helped bring those words and the meaning behind the song to life. It was a pleasure to create and we are ecstatic with the result. The little details in our hero, Danica Burch, and our ballroom casts performances were paramount in bringing this all together. Thank you to everyone involved for such a pleasant and professional experience. We hope Hellions fans enjoy the video for 'Smile' as much as we all enjoyed making it!" - Anthony Caruso (drummer/vocalist/co-writer) and Matt Gravolin (guitar/vocals/cowriter).

How can we overcome our struggles with one another if we don't fully understand the one raging inside ourselves? It's this very question Hellions explore on Rue and there's never been a better time for an album that explores this tussling duality the band describe as "the co-existence of a Jekyll and Hyde operating within a person at any one time".

The tracks on Rue are divided into the 'pessimistic' and 'humanitarian' sides of life, and build upon the marriage of theatrical dynamics and thoughtful lyricism that defined the genre-melding Australian quartet's critically acclaimed previous offering, 2016's third collection Opera Oblivia. The resulting record is deeper and darker, with melodies that are more beautiful, and riffs that are more seismic.

Hellions - 'Rue' is available for preorder via 24Hundred and iTunes. "Smile" is out now and available on all streaming services.

Hellions - Rue is out October 19 via UNFD.

 The Wild Things Release New Song 'Tell Me Why'.

The Wild ThingsWednesday 26th September 2018
London-based alt-rock four-piece, The Wild Things have revealed a new track from their upcoming debut album along with a lyric video.  

The track, 'Tell Me Why'  is a poignant rock ballad about a teenage couple on the run from the law across the American plains. They bond over the crimes they have committed together and make a promise of forever love, but as the cold nights set in, the girl finds her partner in crime growing distant and cold...

'Tell Me Why' is the third track to be revealed from the upcoming 12-track debut album 'You're Really Something', which will be released on 23 November via AWAL. The album was recorded in the basement of a castle in West London, produced by the band's very own Cam White (bass, vocals), and engineered / mixed by Adrian Hall at London's Metropolis Studios.

 Richard Ashcroft Releases New Single 'Born To Be Strangers'.

Richard AshcroftWednesday 26th September 2018
Following the great response to latest single 'Surprised By The Joy', Richard Ashcroft unveils a second track from album 'Natural Rebel' titled 'Born To Be Strangers'. It's a slick rock n roll record bristling with charisma, featuring authentic guitars and Ashcroft's vocals shine with splendour. Says Ashcroft of 'Born To Be Strangers'; This record has more guitar playing on it than the last. We've reached the point where the guitar has to do something if you're gonna play it. It's got to move you in some way. It doesn't have to be intricate or muso, it just has to have soul."

Richard Ashcroft is set to return with the October 19th release of his fifth solo studio album 'Natural Rebel'. The album will be released on his own RPA label and will be his first released via BMG. 'Natural Rebel' represents the latest chapter in a hugely successful solo career for the former Verve frontman and Ivor Novello winner. It follows 'Alone With Everybody' (#1, 2000), 'Human Conditions' (#3, 2002), 'Keys to the World' (#2, 2006) and 'These People' (#3, 2016).  

Featuring ten new songs, all of which were written by Ashcroft, 'Natural Rebel' was produced by the singer-songwriter alongside Jon Kelly (Paul McCartney, Kate Bush) and Emre Ramazanoglu (Bobby Gillespie, Jarvis Cocker). The majority of its recording took place at State of the Ark Studios in Richmond, with further sessions at The Bunker, Tileyard Studios and Hoxa HQ.

'Natural Rebel' is now available to pre-order from https://RA.lnk.to/NaturalRebelPR on 180 gram vinyl, CD and cassette.

 Blakc Queen To Release New Album On Friday.

Black QueenWednesday 26th September 2018
The Black Queen, the unbridled experimental electronic-meets-alternative trio of Greg Puciato (ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan), Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv) and Steven Alexander Ryan (Nine Inch Nails/A Perfect Circle technician), return with their sophomore album, Infinite Games, on Sept. 28th.

The 10-track album also marks the debut release to come from the band's newly formed creative entity, Federal Prisoner, a joint collective between the band members and acclaimed fine artist Jesse Draxler (creator of the artwork for both Fever Daydream and Infinite Games). While the partners are keeping their plans for Federal Prisoner under wraps, the enterprise will serve as the creative homestead for the foursome, with future releases already in the works. "Federal Prisoner won't function like a typical label," says Puciato. "It's an expression of passion and individualism in a way that opens more doors for us to create and to own what we create with minimal compromise. It's as much an act of refusal as it is a statement of intent. We won't be working within the current industry blueprint of premieres, 'instant grat tracks' or any of that nonsense. We're concentrating on the music, videography and packaging, an aural and visual experience. It's exciting to create our own path."

Infinite Games follows a host of emotional moments for the band members, from Puciato's Polish bus accident, the demise of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Eustis' return to Telefon Tel Aviv, and a robbery of the trio's storage space. It was these events that informed Infinite Games. Eustis, Puciato and Ryan seized the opportunity to rebuild and create their own studio, giving them a spot to regularly convene, to follow kernels of ideas to fruition (or not) and to re-cement their friendship that's often been sidelined by touring with other outfits.

"This time, we learned how to do everything ourselves," explains Puciato, discussing what's changed since the band's debut, Fever Daydream. "There's less uncertainty and more confidence. I'm speaking both about the artistic and business aspect of creating and releasing an album. As for what's changed with Infinite Games, I think it feels more conceptual as an album. It's less a collection of songs and more about the front to back listen. Probably because it wasn't compiled over a four-year span of time like the last one. This one is actually hookier but more insidious, it's a more delicate record."

Infinite Games pre-orders are available now via theblackqueen.bandcamp.com. Vinyl, cassette and CD are highly limited with several variations already sold out since they announced the album exclusively to their fanbase.

 
Infinite Games track list:

1. Even Still I Want To
2. Thrown Into the Dark (Rockest Record on BBC Radio 1 Rock Show)
3. No Accusations
4. Your Move
5. Lies About You
6. Impossible Condition
7. Spatial Boundaries
8. 100 to Zero

 Chthonic Release Acoustic Video For 'Millennia's Faith Undone'.

ChthonicWednesday 26th September 2018
CHTHONIC have released a music video for a delicate acoustic version of "Millennia's Faith Undone", taken from their latest album "Battlefields of Asura". Watch it here: https://youtu.be/nzNL3me01H4

CHTHONIC usually leaves the audience a ferocious impression; however, the release of the acoustic album Timeless Sentence 4 years ago and the music video of Defenders of Bú-Tik Palace (acoustic ver.) and Kaoru (acoustic ver.) not only made a splash but also led the audience to a different world created by CHTHONIC.

After the release of the music video of their new track Millennia’s Faith Undone at the beginning of the month, CHTHONIC have now dropped the official music video of the Aeon's Wraith version (acoustic version), featuring Denise Ho, on the evening of Mid-Autumn Festival. The original crew, including director, Birdy, lead actor and actress, Finn (黃士勛) and Chia-Yu Chang (王丁筑), created the finale of the series of stories. Being executed during the White Terror, the protagonist dies without a place to rest in peace, either is his last will sent to his wife and children. Starting its first page from Kaoru (acoustic ver.), the story finally comes to a sorrowful end which is also a traumatic moment in Taiwanese history. 

To faithfully present the period setting in the new album, Birdy had the production of the music video take place at the historical architecture Yilan Literature Museum. Set in the antique traditional Japanese style house, the music video gives CHTHONIC a delicate vibe different from their on-stage look; Denise Ho, who gladly agreed to be featured in CHTHONIC's latest album, first time setting foot in Yilan Literature Museum, also didn't hesitate to show her fondness of the location. 

Usually, in the acoustic version of CHTHONIC music videos, the costume designing tend to be more "low key." However, bassist Doris' glacial style added a crucial touch that left all the crew impressed. Doris noted that she's thankful for the hard work by the hair and makeup artists. Besides, compared to the past metal version music videos which require more dramatic expression and gesture than live performance, she prefers the shoot for the acoustic version as it allows more natural body movement of everyday life. Moreover, Frontman Freddy stated that to prepare for the music video, he had to refresh his slightly rusty erhu playing. After a busy day in parliament, he still had to practice late at night. He also joked, “Luckily I'm not in the shot too much as I didn’t play it right in a couple spots!"
CHTHONIC is releasing their first album in five years on October 12th. Although the Aeon's Wraith version of Millennia’s Faith Undone is not included in the album, it will be released as a single on vinyl. Worth mentioning, this will be the first CHTHONIC vinyl. As an avid vinyl collector, Jesse Liu, the guitarist in CHTHONIC, excitedly announces that he must be the first one to have the vinyl once it’s done as he can’t wait to have it in his collection!

 The Plot In You To Support The Amity Affliction.

The Plot In YouWednesday 26th September 2018
Ohio's The Plot In You will be joining The Amity Affliction on their imminent UK & European Tour plus they'll be supporting Underoath on their US tour this Autumn. Heralding the forthcoming onslaught of tour dates, the band also recently released a new music video for 'The One You Loved', which is a track from their latest album 'DISPOSE', out now on Fearless Records.   

The visually arresting, gold-drenched clip was directed by the band's drummer Mathis Arnell, who has creatively spearheaded every video for the album's release. "The song has a very intimate feel to it and touches on a lot of emotional topics," he says of 'The One You Loved'. "So, I wanted something that would reflect that visually — without having to be too specific and literal. People from all walks of life can relate to the lyrics, so it made sense to represent that with a bunch of different imagery expressing an array of emotions." Vocalist Landon Tewers adds "This track was the last to make it to the record, it explores thedynamic of disconnect and dissonance in a toxic unfixable relationship."

MetallicaMonday 24th September 2018
Metallica's WorldWired Tour has confirmed its return to the UK and Europe, this time for a staggering May 1-August 25, 2019 run of their own outdoor gigs at stadiums, parks, and even one at a castle.
Tickets go on sale September 28th at 10am
Fifth member pre-sale September 25th

The new dates are Metallica's first in the UK and Europe since the Sept. 2017 to May 2018 indoor run that broke attendance records in 29 venues across the continent. Kicking off May 1, 2019 at Lisbon's Estadio Restelo, the 25 newly announced WorldWired shows across 20 countries include a good dozen cities not visited on those 2017-2018 legs of the tour—including Milan, Zürich, Dublin, Brussels (for the first time since 1988), Berlin, Moscow, Warsaw, Bucharest and Gothenburg, and first ever appearances in Trondheim Norway, Hämeenlinna, Finland and Tartu Estonia.
Special guests Ghost and Bokassa will provide support on all dates.

With this kind of itinerary, it's natural that the Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket will be returning: one ticket allowing floor access to any Metallica show on the 2019 UK/Europe tour. From A(msterdam) to Z(urich) and all points between, Black Ticket holders need only choose the show(s) and make an online reservation no less than 48 hours before the gig.

As with most of Metallica's WorldWired shows, every ticket purchased includes a choice of standard physical or standard digital copy of the band's 10th and current album, Hardwired...To Self-Destruct. 

And once again, all tickets will include a free MP3 download of the show(s) attended, mixed and mastered by the team behind Hardwired...To Self-Destruct. The free full-show downloads can be obtained by scanning or entering the barcode from that show's ticket stub at LiveMetallica.com/scan

Enhanced experience options will also be returning in partnership with the team at CID Entertainment: Three options of special enhanced experiences, including premium tickets and amenities ranging from early access to the venue and the "Memory Remains" travelling museum to meeting members of the band. Visit CID Entertainment for full package details.

 Architects Add Second Manchester Show To UK Tour.

ArchitectsSaturday 22nd September 2018
Following on from their day of surprise announcements last week, Brighton band ARCHITECTS can today announce a 2nd headline show in Manchester, for the 15th January 2019.

The tour through December (Russia), January and February will be the band's biggest ever EU/UK headline tour, and will see them play Wembley Arena on January the 19th - full list of UK shows are below, support on all dates from Beartooth (US) and Polaris (Aus):

14 Jan 2019 – Manchester, O2 Victoria Warehouse (UK) - TICKETS
NEW DATE - 15 Jan 2019 - Manchester, O2 Victoria Warehouse (UK) - TICKETS
17 Jan 2019 – Glasgow, O2 Academy (UK) - TICKETS
18 Jan 2019 – Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena (UK)  - TICKETS
19 Jan 2019 – London, The SSE Arena Wembley (UK) - TICKETS


ARCHITECTS will also be releasing their hugely anticipated new album return 'Holy Hell' - out November 9th on Epitaph Records. Current single 'Hereafter' has already been viewed over 1.2 million times on Youtube.

'Holy Hell' marks the band's first release since the untimely passing of Tom Searle, Architect's founding guitarist, principal songwriter and twin brother to drummer Dan. "In those first months after Tom's death, I didn't deal with it at all and I felt so unhappy and anxious," Dan explains. "I'd ignored it and just tried to cope. But I knew that at some point, I had to learn from it."

"It's at times like that you ask yourself, 'What is left?'" adds vocalist Sam Carter. "As a group of friends, we had to find something."
 
"Ultimately, there were two choices,"
Dan says. "Feel sorry for yourself and believe the world to be a horrible place and let it defeat you. Or let it inspire us to live the life that Tom would have wanted us to live. I was very worried about people taking away a despondent message from the album. I felt a level of responsibility to provide a light at the end of the tunnel for people who are going through terrible experiences."

Finding a way forward, the band spent six months from the Fall of 2017 through the Spring of this year recording what would become the 11-song album, with Dan and guitar player Josh Middleton handling production. "For me, broadly speaking Holy Hell is about pain: the way we process it, cope with it, and live with it," Dan offers. "There is value in pain. It's where we learn, it's where we grow."

Album pre-orders, including physical bundles featuring vinyl and various merchandise, as well as digital pre-orders offering instant downloads of "Hereafter"
are available - HERE

 Crossfaith Announce UK And Europe Tour.

CrossfaithSaturday 22nd September 2018
saka's Crossfaith have today released the video for 'Make A Move', from their new album, EX_MACHINA.

Speaking of the track, singer Kenta Koie says, "This video was filmed while we were on our summer European tour, which was a great time for us. When you watch it you can really feel the sort of energy we put into our live shows! And we can't wait to be back in the UK and Europe for our headlining tour this month - check out Make A Move and get ready for it!"
EX_MACHINA is the Japanese band's fifth album and the follow-up to 2015's critically acclaimed XENO. The album features an impressive cameo from Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds as well industrial hip hoppers Ho99o9.

EX _MACHINA is a concept album set in an alternative near future in which the ruling class, known as Angels, maintain their world through artificial intelligence and other technology, which dehumanises people and effectively turns them into drones
 
Frontman Kenta 'Ken' Koie explains: "After we released last album XENO, we were thinking about what the next theme for us is. Then we decided to put theme "Awake the individuality". Because we've always trying to make new things and that's the big part of band's attitudes.
Technology has been advancing from when I was kid, and it definitely helps the world but at the same time I feel like technology take out important process to think about individuality in exchange for convenience. This album is a grave warning for our future, I hope you guys listen to this and think about what the meaning of this album is for you and feel how you feel through this album and start something for your future."

 The Story So Far Release New Album 'Proper Dose'.

The Story So FarSaturday 22nd September 2018
Pure Noise Records and West Coast rock band The Story So Far are thrilled to announce the release of the band's new album, Proper Dose. Out today, the album delivers a powerful,11-song statement of purpose. Proper Dose is the first studio album released by the band since May of 2015. Head to Bandcamp, Spotify, or Apple Music to listen. Then, head over to TSSF's YouTube page where they're premiering their brand new video for, "Upside Down." 

Additionally, TSSF will be headlining in the UK & EU, in support of their latest opus. 

A full listing of dates can be found below, and more information on tickets can be found on the band's official website HERE.

A lot can happen in three years, and for The Story So Far, a whole lot did. After the release of their third, self-titled album in 2015, the band's routine  writing, recording, and touring had caught up with them. "We were so burnt from touring, and playing the same songs over and over again," says Parker Cannon, the band's vocalist and lyricist, "We knew we had to take a step back and collect ourselves." By taking that time to recharge, The Story So Far were able to look at themselves with fresh eyes and newfound creative ambitions, returning with their most cohesive and confident record to date.
Out today, September 21st on Pure Noise Records, Proper Dose shows just how much The Story So Far have grown as both people and musicians. They take bold creative leaps, finally making the record that they'd always wanted to. "This one, all the way through, I just think it's leaps and bounds ahead of anything we've ever done," says Cannon. 
As is the case with every The Story So Far album, guitarist Kevin Geyer and drummer Ryan Torf shepherded the creative direction. "We didn't really have a deadline," says Geyer, "And the biggest enabler of us getting the record to where we wanted it was having time to work on it." Over the course of a full year, Geyer and Torf shaped the songs that would become the backbone of Proper Dose, often starting them on instruments like the wurlitzer or synthesizer before bringing them to the rest of the band. 
Holing up with producer and engineer Sam Pura, The Story So Far spent just as much time reworking the songs on Proper Dose as they did writing them. "Since our last record, we've all collectively really gotten into The Beatles," says Geyer. "It's not like we're trying to sound like The Beatles, but it just gives you a crash course in songwriting and how you can experiment but retain your identity." Proper Dose makes full use of those influences, allowing the band to push themselves to into new spaces while bringing their fans up to speed on everything that's happened in the past three years.

Cannon says the question the band kept asking themselves while making the album was, "How do we stay the same but get better?" The answer was found by never settling, opting instead to push the songs into spaces that felt exciting and new. "It was a challenging process," says Torf, "But it was a very rewarding process." The culmination of that effort can be heard in songs like "Take Me As You Please" and "Let It Go," where The Story So Far builds orante pop songs that retain the energy and urgency of their early work. 

Aided by the mixing of Eric Valentine, who has worked with bands like Third Eye Blind, Queens Of The Stone Age, and countless others, Proper Dose became a cohesive album by effectively uniting the band's past with their present. Cannon's voice remains anthemic, but his range has expanded along with the band's sonic palette. Geyer and guitarist Will Levy compose parts that are nuanced and evocative, allowing the the rhythm section of Torf and bassist Kelen Capener to wander more than ever before. Using a diverse set of reference points, the songs explore new directions, be it the Oasis-indebted "Upside Down" or the electronic-flecked "Line."

At its core, Proper Dose is about finding balance between the person you were and the person you wish to be, and it shows the band working to bridge that gap. It's a brave 

record, the kind that sees The Story So Far showing their fans just how far they've come and inviting them to go on the journey with them.

Holy Hell marks the band's first release since the untimely passing of Tom Searle, Architect's founding guitarist, principal songwriter and twin brother to drummer Dan. "In those first months after Tom's death, I didn't deal with it at all and I felt so unhappy and anxious," Dan explains. "I'd ignored it and just tried to cope. But I knew that at some point, I had to learn from it."

"It's at times like that you ask yourself, 'What is left?'" adds vocalist Sam Carter. "As a group of friends, we had to find something."
"Ultimately, there were two choices," Dan says. "Feel sorry for yourself and believe the world to be a horrible place and let it defeat you. Or let it inspire us to live the life that Tom would have wanted us to live. I was very worried about people taking away a despondent message from the album. I felt a level of responsibility to provide a light at the end of the tunnel for people who are going through terrible experiences."

Finding a way forward, the band spent six months from the Fall of 2017 through the Spring of this year recording what would become the 11-song album, with Dan and guitar player Josh Middleton handling production. "For me, broadly speaking Holy Hell is about pain: the way we process it, cope with it, and live with it," Dan offers. "There is value in pain. It's where we learn, it's where we grow."
