So if you’re recovering from a pretty heavy night last night, ‘Rat Race’, the new music video from Enter Shikari probably not what you want to be watching. Two reasons why – firstly, its pretty LOUD, secondly, frontman Rou Reynolds seems to have grown a fairly odd looking beard..
Anyway, massive props to the guys from pushing the boat out on techno / rock / whatever genre you’d like to try and class them as. (I’m gonna be honest with you, halfway through the video I paused it, because I thought it must be playing twice in my browser. It wasn’t. That was just the song..).
Happy new music er, Tuesday? Here’s a brilliant bite of straight up rock goodness for you to enjoy this evening.
Lonely The Brave have recently signed to Hassle Records (home of We Are The Ocean, if you didn’t already know..). They’ve also been tipped for success by the likes of Rock Sound, Classic Rock and Kerrang!, which is never a bad thing.
This lyric video for ‘Black Saucers’ should explain why. Neat vocals, good riffs and a definite case of substance over style (I’m sure they have style, you’re missing my point) makes a good band, and by those standards this is a really good band.
If so, you’re in luck as there’s some new music coming your way from the Californian nu-metallers (is nu-metal still a dirty word?). ‘Before I Die’ might not have the same snarling intensity of ‘To Be Loved’, but the punchy chorus is an obvious hands-in-the-air crowd pleaser. Now can we have some UK tour dates please?
Papa Roach’s new album, ‘The Connection’ is out now.
