Who doesn’t love a bit of good ol’fashioned rock? I’m sure there’s a few folks out there who would fall into that category, but hopefully not you lovely readers..
Swedish rockers Houston have just released their new lyric video for ‘Our Love’, featuring guest vocals from the band’s friends, including (my own Finnish favourites) Reckless Love. If that isn’t enough to grab your interest, the band’s new record ‘Relaunch II’ feature a cover of none other than (shock horror) Lady Gaga..
Go on, have a listen..
Good news rockers! Brighton’s finest alt-rockers Royal Blood have just released a smashing new video for ‘Figure It Out’, complete with a weird and slightly unnerving storyline. If you like your colours red and blue, and your rock heavy with some underlying blues tones, you should definitely check this one out..
If you braved it all the way to Sonisphere on this rainy weekend past, and if you like your rock a-la-classisque (yes, I’ve just made that up..) then you might’ve already come across London’s own Night By Night. If you haven’t, or even if you have, you should definitely take a moment of your time to watch their latest video for A Thousand Lies and then considering going to see them live before they reach the stadium size that their sound is clearly meant for. .
Struggling through the week so far? Fear not! Brit-rock upstarts Marmozets have a new video that’ll have you stomping your way to Friday in no time at all. ‘Captivate You‘ is the effortlessly catchy new single from the math-rock loving five piece and is available on iTunes now.
Have a listen below..
Happy Monday all! If you’re not recovering from Glasto (anyone see Metallica? I didn’t..), there’s a top rock tunes here up for your listening pleasure. Bristol’s rock’n’roll enthusiasts BlackWolf have already been picked as a track of the week from Classic Rock, in the same issue as their fellow blues-tinged-rockers Rival Sons. If that isn’t enough to convince you, they’ve been hitting the road with the likes of The Answer, and have a show lined up in Bristol next month with (one of my personal favourites) Reckless Love.
Still not enough? Have a listen to this..
Well it seems like everyone is going acoustic these days! Following Frank Turner’s footsteps, Jamie Lenman (of Reuben fame) went acoustic/heavy on us, and now Charlie Simpson (of Fightstar, and yes I’m going to say it, Busted) has done the same.
Taking a more pop side, Charlie’s latest single ‘Haunted‘ is a snappy piece of acapella-based indie-pop with a touching message. If you haven’t listened to it yet, you definitely should..
Post-hardcore quintet Pavilions have already honed their skills on the live side with the likes of Deaf Havana and Lower Than Atlantis, and are now cementing their refreshingly positive sound on their upcoming new album ‘The Futures Mine To Make‘.
New single ‘Futures‘ features a carefully crafted melodic intro, followed by a full-on rock chorus with some clear influences from album producer Dan Lancaster’s previous work with Don Broco. With such a strong sound, these guys are sure to be doing headline tours of their own in no time..
Has a whole week gone by so fast?! Sorry folks, I’ve been busy in the non-digital world. Anyway, back to normal service, at least for a while..
Those of you who are fans of The Wonder Years (the pop-punk band, not the television series) should definitely already know about frontman Dan Campbell’s new project, Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties. Based on the sad tale of fictional character Aaron West, debut album ‘We Don’t Have Each Other’ is out on July 8th.
Watch the official video for first single ‘Divorce and the American South‘ below..
Well about this time last year I was enjoying that post-festival shower (you’ve never felt so clean, right?) and first sleep in a proper bed again. Unfortunately I couldn’t make Download this year, but that’s ok because I’ve had plenty of stomping rock tunes to listen to all weekend, without the overpriced beer / poor weather and inevitable sunburn, even though there’s no sun.
What am I saying? Of course I missed it, but here’s a great new video from Theory of a Deadman to make up for it.. ‘Drown‘, taken from the band’s upcoming fifth album’ SaVages‘, has more than a few echoes of Soundgarden, plus some much harder hitting tones hiding in those brief four minutes.
Don’t you go missing out now..
Well I couldn’t let today go by without covering this one.. THE soundtrack to your teenage angst, Linkin Park have released the video for ‘Until It’s Gone‘, taken from their new album ‘The Hunting Party‘, out June 17th.
As much as the band have talked about reinventing their sound, this is clearly a Linkin Park song, and not purely because of Chester Bennington’s strained (in a good way) vocals. If anything, its a follow on from 2021′s ‘Living Things’ in terms of the stadium sound, with a more mature perspective.
Watch it now!
