From front man Murray - ‘’Pop Song’ is another track much like ‘Shaking In The Water’ that changed over the course of time the more we played it. Originally the song sounded like something from the first Cold War Kids record and we actually made the decision to make the drum beat in the verses more pounding whilst on tour with Biffy Clyro. I distinctly remember being backstage in Paris with Tom and we agreed we should make the drums more ‘stadium’ esq. Clearly playing with Biffy in big rooms each night had an affect on us. Lyrically the song is about falling in love with someone and being so wholeheartedly terrified about the situation that you practically go into self-sabotage mode. If like me you are an ‘over thinker’, especially when it comes to something like falling in love, you almost convince yourself the relationship is doomed before it has even begun and you end up looking at a near perfect situation very negatively, which is just batsh*t crazy. A personal fear that i’m sure many folks can relate to.”
Every band feel as though they’re a unique proposition but few walk the walk quite like Kent’s Feed The Rhino. Too multi-dimensional for the hardcore scene, way too gritty and willing to burn the rule book to ever be considered a metal band and far too inventive to ever be pigeonholed by punk, Rhino have a history in standing out from the crowd over the course of their short career. It’s been a badge of honour. “We are Feed the Rhino and we don’t need your scene or the latest trend to be somebody”. Only with ‘The Sorrow and The Sound’, they’ve created something more than just being a different flavour and standing out from the crowd. They’ve made an album that throws together the ruthless groove of Pantera, the sinister side of Deftones, the nasty streak of Gallows and their own unique aggression to make something that threatens to obliterate the banality of what you’ve come to expect from a modern rock band.
News: GLAMOUR OF THE KILL announce ‘After Hours’ EP with new track, ‘Out Of Control’, featuring Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach!
Drawing from a deep well of hard-driving music with rebellious disregard for the restrictive “rules” of nitpicking subgenres, Glamour Of The Kill raise the flags high for the partying vibe of ‘80s hair metal and the soaring energy of today’s more aggressive vanguard of sound with new EP, ‘After Hours’.
SENSES FAIL has announced they have signed to Pure Noise Records. The news comes shortly after the band kicked off their nationwide Let It Enfold You 10th entering the studio in November to start recording their next full length which is scheduled to be released in summer 2015.
“We are very excited to start a new chapter in the bands life by signing to Pure Noise. It is wonderful to be a part of something that feels very much alive. This label is filled with current bands all jumping off and all making very meaningful, important music. We couldn’t be more excited to release new music and to be doing so on a label like Pure Noise is perfect.” says Buddy Nielsen (singer)
Introducing to you, THE AMSTERDAM RED LIGHT DISTRICT - aka TARLD, with their brand new record, ‘Gone For A While’, set for release on November 26th via Red-Light Records.
Hailing from Lyon, FR, the four-piece have just revealed the details for their latest handiwork, that they have been working on since the end of 2013!
TARLD’s sound has been nurtured from the roots of bands that the band grew up listening to, and still love today – such as Refused, The Bronx, Letlive & The Ghost Of A Thousand – they pride themselves on their live show particularly, and having been part of tours throughout Europe with bands like Comeback Kid, Slayer, Anti-Flag & Refused, so they should be!
Mariachi El Bronx – the alter ego of acclaimed Los Angeles punk outfit The Bronx – have announced the November 4 release of Mariachi El Bronx (III) with this video teaser. Listen to the album’s lead track “New Beat”: http://smarturl.it/meb-new-beat.
On the third in its series of self-titled albums, the band took a fresh approach. Not content to simply excel within the confines of the mariachi genre, they ditched the rulebook and dusted off old sequencers, synths and an ARP. The 10 striking songs that resulted fuse traditional melodies with modern ambience. See below for track listing.
After announcing the first leg of their world tour, Sleeping With Sirens & Pierce The Veil, two of the most exciting and compelling forces on the music scene today proud to announce EU & UK dates for Spring 2015 in conjunction with Rockstar Energy Drink.
