Have you missed me? I’ve had laryngitis for the past couple of weeks, so thought this video would be pretty appropriate, seeing as I’ve been spending enough time around nurses (although none wielding needles like this!). A Higher Demise‘s new video for ‘My Therapist Knows You By Name‘ is a stomping mix of screams and melodic verses for any good post-hardcore fan to tune into. Check it out here:
Seems like steam-punk aficionados Fearless Vampire Killers have taken a step back from the growling and turned to old-school pop-punk, the likes of early My Chemical Romance for their new single, ‘Neon In The Dance Halls‘. With a video featuring cameos from fellow eyeliner lovers Ashestoangels and daddy of the new goth-punk movement, William Control, this is definitely the sound of a young band taking their first steps towards stadium level. Good luck to them!
It may not be quite the weather for it, but who doesn’t need a little more low-key blues rock in their life? Close the curtains, turn the lights down and pretend its a cool autumn evening for this one.. The Gaslight Anthem play with your heartstings on their new single for ‘Get Hurt‘ taken from their upcoming album of the same name.
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..
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..
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.
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.
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..
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.
