Artist: Continents

New Music Video: Preacher

Release Date: 5th November 2017

Hailing from South Wales, progressive metal quintet Continents have released their explosive new single ‘Preacher’. This hard hitting track is a taster of what’s to come from the band in 2018.

Having used to be branded with the ‘hardcore’ genre, their sound has progressed and evolved without holding back. Over the last twelve months, the band have been focusing on making decisions since they parted ways with Victory Records in late 2016. After having numerous managers and agents approach them, the band decided to go back to their roots, to make themselves in charge and going forward. Having had a successful summer playing in Europe and UK this year,  the band realised there was still a huge hunger from their fanbase for some new material.

Currently touring with US post-hardcore quartet Secrets and London’s Shields, the band are going to perform actively with the new single ‘Preacher’ in December before delivering more new materials in 2018. Make sure to catch them to complete your 2017!

Sun Arcana

Artist: Sun Arcana

New Music Video: Wonderful

Release Date: 3rd November 2017

Hailing from Southend area in Essex, Sun Arcana consist of Tom Harper-Ward, Ryan Daniels and Harry Acreman dabbled with various musical projects as teenagers. However, they were brought together by a collective vision to create full-throttled, heavy music which had the melodic appeal to a broad audience. Later Jules Wildblood joined on bass after crossing paths with him at University, then the line-up was complete and Sun Arcana was born. By this time, the band were already an online sensation. The band name touches on the mythology behind Tarot cards, with Arcana referring to mystical secrets and the Sun radiating light – referring to optimism. It’s partly a reflection of the band’s positive outlook on things to come.

The band take to The Finsbury, London to celebrate the release of ‘Wonderful’ on 21st November. Admission is free via Dice FM, and support comes from fantastic two bands, Oceans and Echoic. As having seeing their first ever show in March 2016, I believe this forthcoming show is going to be an awesome one you to remember!

New Music Video: An Exercise in Abstinence

Release Date: 13th October 2017

Hailing from Manchester, Peur unveiled their new single ‘An Exercise in Abstinence’ on Friday the 13th of October. The band deliver this heavy alt-rock track melodically and that is emotionally appealingly.

Peur were formed in the beginning of 2013 with the trio, Joe Lomax (Guitar/Vocals), Ryan Greenhalgh (Bass) and Sam Tempest (Percussion). They bring an enthralling and unique vision of music, striking a balance between heavy instruments and the very best elements of hard and alternative rock sounds. With influences ranging from Muse and 65daysofstatic to Northlane, their broad taste allows them to write music with complexity and mainstream appeal.  This single ‘An Exercise in Abstinence’ has been produced by long term collaborator Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns) and is a dynamic slab of captivating alt-rock laced with alluring phrasing that is destined to ignite.

HIMS-BW

Artist: Himalayas

New Music Video: Sigh on a Hurricane

Release Date: 16th October 2017

Single Release Date: 27th October 2017

Hailing from Cardiff, Himalayas have just released their new video for ‘Sigh on a Hurricane’, which will be released on 27th October.

Himalayas are a four-piece indie rock band who have been causing a lots of buzzes recently. Earlier this year, the band released the incendiary ‘Thank God I’m Not You’ which brought them exposure to global audiences and went on to feature on numerous Spotify curated playlists, notching up over 2M plays and counting.

‘Sigh On A Hurricane’ is another blistering offering from the band that spews pure raw energy from the offset. The track which is filled with youthful snarl is a hard hitting anthem on the state of the current political landscape.

The band said about this video ‘Tom Large who directed video “tries to show the chaos of politics in our time. With a nod to propaganda videos, the imitation of politicians portrays the disarray of 21st century politics. The kaleidoscope style plays on the metaphor of modern politics being such a mess.”

They are completing the tour supporting Australian outfit Gang of Youths, and there is more gigs in the pipeline. Catch Himalayas live!

Live Dates:

21st October: Cardiff – Sŵn Festival, The Big Top

24th October: Cardiff – Clwb Ifor Bach (supporting Otherkin)

Jade Assembly cover (2)

Artist: The Jade Assembly

New Music Video: Got My Star

Release Date: 16th October 2017

It is a year since Bolton’s mighty indie rock band The Jade Assembly released their latest EP ‘Sundays and Occasional Wednesdays’. Today the band released the new music video for their forthcoming single ‘Got My Star’ which is due to be released on 6th November 2017 digitally and will be on vinyl too. So ‘Got My Star’ is coupled with a B-side ‘Save One For Me’. These two songs contrast each other, but at the same time are complimentary.

Lead singer John Foz Foster passionately performs with charisma. His honest lyrics bare a strengthening and poetic truth with the magnetic flare of an assured front man. Andy Watson and Danny Hayes keep a formidable rhythm section whilst Gareth Smed Smedley strikes raw vigour on lead guitar. With their compelling commitment, The Jade Assembly generate a magnetic sense of purpose.

‘Got My Star’ is written about striving for something in your life for so long but then you meet someone and nothing else really matters because you’re happy to be with that person. Foz writes the lyrics and the melody and then brings the tune to the rest of the band and we add our bits to create the full sound, which is the normal process for us. We’ve recorded this song with Gavin Monaghan – legendary producer at his Magic Garden Studio in Wolverhampton where we had a great weekend and came away with something we’re really happy and proud of . We’re also releasing the single with Magic Garden vinyl which we’re really excited about. It’s a song that came together very quickly in a few days and was recorded and mixed in 2 days. The song is upbeat and always gets the crowd going when we play it live. We’re really buzzing for everyone to hear it.”  – The Jade Assembly

Live Dates:

21st October: Blackburn – Napier

22nd October: Leeds – Bier Keller

2nd November: London – The Monarch (This Feeling)

New Music Video: Apathy

Release Date: 11th October 2017

Following the recent announcement of their forthcoming EP ‘Deadweight’, Swansea pop punk quintet Seven Stories High have unveiled the music video for ‘Apathy’.

Deadweight’ will be self-released on 24th November, and it includes an instant grat of their latest single ‘Apathy’. It is based on the tale of King Midas, but adapted to focus on struggles of mental health, the band have said “We have all, either personally or through someone close to us, dealt with mental health and it was our hope that perhaps someone who was struggling would get something out of this.”

The EP flows as one piece of music, with each track written to fit the narrative, whilst being open enough to interpretation for listeners to make a personal connection.

“The video was written by us together and filmed by Alex-Jay Moore (Alex-Jay Photography). The video, much like the EP, is playing into our version of the Greek Myth of King MIDAS who turns his daughter marigold into solid gold. It was a lot of fun to film, and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it. Big love to Amy-Beth McCarthy for being our ‘Marigold’.” – Rhys Hyett-Ferrier (Vocals)

VANITY

Music Video: AFFINITY

Release Date: 9th September 2017

Highly regarded UK metallers VANITY (ex-Vanity Draws Blood) based in London have just released their stunning music video for the magnetic AFFINITY’ ahead of their forthcoming EP ‘Perspective // Empathy’ which is due to be released on 22nd September.

The band have been engraving a name for themselves within the UK and European Metal Fraternity. Despatching an amalgamation of brutal breakdowns, moving soundscapes, and fiercely low-tuned instrumentation, the six-piece, fronted by two vocalists, strive and achieve to produce something potently unique. With an uninhibited reputation for delivering brooding and submerging atmospheric metal, the Brit metalcorers received notable acclaim for 2014’s debut EP ‘I Witness’, which firmly cemented the band’s impending trajectory.  After a period of reflection, the diligent metal crew decided to focus on creating a series of works under the title Perspective; the first of which was released in 2016 and entitled ‘Perspective // Dread’. The highly regarded EP also contained the single ‘AFFINITY’ featuring CJ McMahon of Thy Art Is Murder. Their new EP is everything you should expect from a band that have exemplary output.

Music Video: Sleep

Release Date: 06/07/17

The Scottish Alt-Metal band House Of Hatchets released the anticipated music video for their debut single “Sleep” on 6th July. This track is a first single from their debut EP “The Grind” which was released on 19th May 2017.

The vocalist, Chris Allison says about “The Grind”:  There are over arching themes of dark states of mind, struggle and victory over demons.  The majority of us have been/will go through through sh*t stuff at some point.  Hopefully people can form their own interpretations of the tunes and use them in their own way.

The new music video “Sleep” illustrates these concepts visually.

House Of Hatchets hail from Edinburgh and were formed in 2016. They have already set the bar very high and will keep raising it higher.

Death Blooms

Music Video: Sick

Release Date: 27/06/17

Hailing from Liverpool and Manchester, Death Blooms have just released the 2nd single “Sick” from their self-titled debut EP. The metalcore four-piece burst onto the scene earlier this year with their stunning first music release ‘I’m Dead’ and a number of live shows which has seen them sharing the stages with the likes of Dope, Skindred, Raging Speedhorn, (Hed)P.E., Anti-Clone and more.

Death Blooms are supporters of mental health charity MIND, and take on metal with meaning. Vocalist Paul Barrow says, “We talk to people a lot who’ve taken the time to listen to our music, and because the lyrics encapsulate what many of us feel on a daily basis, a lot of folk make the connection quickly about mental health and the need for well-being in this fast and furious digital age.” He also explains the meaning behind the song and new video, “‘Sick’ is about the constant struggle inside of your own thoughts and the journey you undertake along the way. Sometimes, you feel like you have complete control of the situation and other times you have absolutely none. ‘Sick’ is about wanting to break free from your own shackles, but acknowledging and accepting that this is who you are. It’s good to talk about how you feel and to be honest, most importantly, with yourself. I feel like the song ended up being one massive therapy session for me.”

Death Blooms live:
 17th July – Milton Keynes, Craufurd Arms (w/ Trapt, The Fallen State)

27th Aug – Liverpool, Studio 2 (w/ Loathe, Harbinger)

Release Date: 16/06/17

Leeds based fantastic alternative rock band City Of Lights has announced that they would release the music video for the latest song Besiege if their Leeds show has been sold out. Now the video is up on YouTube, check it out!

Although City Of Lights are based in Leeds, the original seeds of the band were formed in Paris in April 2011. After an initial series of successful shows with current form as a quartet, the band quickly assembled an army of fans, and word spread fast about the crafty Yorkshire tunesmiths. Evidently, appearances at Reading & Leeds Festival 2013, various O2 Academies and UK and European tours have proven to the masses that the alt-rockers have truly created a sound that will quench the thirst of fans needing something solid, fresh, and inspiring from the rock genre.

October Ends

Music Video: Faith In Me 

Release Date: 24/05/17

Powerful metalcore quartet October Ends, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, released a brand new music video for their latest single “Faith In Me” recently. Combining the best assets and features of the metal genre that are presented to the general audience through the outstanding and unique talent of the band’s members in terms of instrumental proficiency and song writing abilities, “Faith In Me” perfectly represents and showcases dynamic, moving and aggressive approach to creating direct metal compositions, mixed with October Ends’ collective willingness to form diversified, original and outstanding sound that can be related only to the band’s specific profile.

“This song is about battling your own mental health issues (whether it’s anxiety, depression or other factors) and asking loved ones to trust and to hear your cry for help, as we are now in a world where people find it a lot harder to be able to find the confidence in someone they can trust to speak about their personal issues they are facing. We’ve either all been there or we’re still going through it, but all it takes is to make the first move and ask for help. We hope that “Faith In Me” will connect with people who are struggling with situations like this, because no matter what happens behind closed doors, you’re never alone.”  – October Ends

Their new EP “A New Path” will be released on 26th June 2017. You can pre-order the physical copy now; http://octoberendsuk.bigcartel.com/

Seasonal

Music Video: Headphones

Release Date: 05/06/17

Hailing from Guildford, Surrey,  Seasonal formed as a trio in 2016, and later became a quartet.

After 9 months of writing and working on their repertoire,  the band headed into the studio with the intention of recording just one track. However, upon hearing the first mix, they were inspired to dive in, going on to lay down all of the tracks that became their debut EP “Bloom” which includs “Headphones”. The result is an emotionally weathered offering of heartfelt pop rock, reminiscent of Jimmy Eat World, Deaf Havana and Taking Back Sunday. Noting influences from both the ‘old’ and the ‘new’, they feel the acts they adore have shaped their sound, but that they offer something different.

Malum Sky

Music Video: Eye Above

Release Date: 26/05/17

The track “Eye Above” is a hammerjack of a cut and ideally showcases the band’s increased diversity and imposing prowess. The progressive metal crew are also primed to hit the UK with an onslaught of shows, as well as a new EP out later in the year. For updates, stay glued to the band’s social media sites.

Formed in 2014 and hailing from Cardiff, Malum Sky soon set about releasing their self-titled debut EP in the Summer of 2015. The release garnered a strong response throughout the musical fraternity with Discovered Magazine citing that “Malum Sky come with a progressive spine and are easily ones to watch”. Due to the success of the EP and persistent live shows throughout their regional area, the alt-metallers soon amassed an army of dedicated followers throughout South Wales. Regrettably, just as the band were on the cusp of breaking out to a national audience, their original vocalist, Abraham, left the group. Buoyed by the response from the EP and live performances, the band regrouped and set about finding a suitable replacement. Ben Honebone stepped up to fill the void, and throughout 2016, the quintet burrowed away in the rehearsal room, ready to return with a modified sound that has a distinctly harder, edgier tilt.

TRUTH

Music Video: Gemini

Release Date: 07/05/17

South Welsh metal quartet Truth is back with their first single after 2 years of developing its sound and building a strong foundation. The band have finally released a long-anticipated debut video for “Gemini”.

Truth, the post-hardcore/metalcore formation is set to stampede its way through the scene with thunderous riffs and the intense drive to be something unique.

“This song is about one person living two very different lifestyles. The life his loved ones think he leads and the life he actually leads. “Gemini” was the first song we began to write for our new record and was the first step in the direction we wanted our new sound to follow. This track is a very honest composition and has a dark undertone. Though it has been proved challenging to write and record, we knew that we had to keep pushing through, because we knew we had something unique, especially compared to the other songs we have written in the past. It was a risk and definitely put us out of our comfort zone, because it has a lot of different elements that we weren’t used to, both musically and lyrically. We were so used to writing the same thing over and over again, just to please people who like this genre of music, but with “Gemini”, we think that we made something that we would want to listen to ourselves. We think that this type of music gets a bad reputation these days with plenty of bands sounding the same and essentially playing the same songs just with different titles and being too scared to step outside of the box. We believe “Gemini” is a step closer to revitalising this music scene.”  – TRUTH

Prog rock quintet Order Of Voices released the music video for Long For Air recently. This song is taken from their superb new album ‘Constancy’ which was released in March this year.

order of voices cover” ‘Constancy’ has taken the band through a massive journey of self-discovery and improvement. The journey has involved some show stopping technical glitches, many hours of late night soul searching, elation, anger, desperation and joy, also not forgetting the odd birth and death. All this and more has contributed to the album, all this is present in the notes recorded and when the album title is dissected, you’ll find everything you need to know about ORDER OF VOICES present in the meaning – Constancy: The quality of being unchanging or unwavering, as in purpose, love, or loyalty; firmness of mind; faithfulness.  – Order Of Voices

Fizzy Blood

Music Video: Pawn

Release Date: 12/05/17

FIZZY BLOOD, one of the most lively live bands today from Leeds, have unveiled a new video for their new single ​PAWN​. Taking inspiration from 80s instructional tapes, the video pokes fun at the world of manufactured boy bands and features equal measures of fuzz, oddball behaviour and unhinged energy.

“​The video for ‘PAWN’ shot on VHS and was made to emulate the style of those horrible 80’s PSA videos. I like the way that kind of corny, un-self-aware, salesmen like attitude parodies the attitudes within the mainstream music industry even today and hopefully that comes across when people watch it. It was shot within a day in an art studio in Leeds and a lot of our mates came down, dressed up and got involved in the making of the video so we had a lot of fun making it.” – ​Paul Howells, Guitars

2017 is shaping up to be​FIZZY BLOOD​’s biggest year yet. The band made their second appearance at​SXSW, which was followed by the aforementioned 19-date run with ​While She Sleeps. ​FIZZY BLOOD will kick off a hefty festival schedule, which will include;

The Great Escape

​Liverpool Sound City

Camden Rocks

​Download

​2000 Trees

​Tramlines

– with more to be announced soon.

Weasel is The Franklys‘ latest single off from their forthcoming album Are You Listening? which is due to be released on 23rd June.

The Franklys are comprised of two members from Sweden and two from England and play frenetic garage rock with heavy and psychedelic overtones á la Led Zeppelin-Blondie-Strokes-QOTSA-punk-pop-rock-madness. They have built a reputation for themselves as one of the most exciting live bands on the London circuit and beyond with relentless touring across the UK, Europe and America, including a recent support tour with Airbourne and festival slots at Isle of Wight 2015 and Download Festival 2016.

Are You Listening?The Franklys demand an answer, scrawling it across the cover of their debut album. The album finds the band at their full creative tilt. It encapsulates their live energy and replicates perfectly the thrill of their live show. The Franklys say “We made a conscious decision to try and make as versatile record as possible with a mixture of energetic pop rock songs together with garage, punk, indie, hard rock and funk. Listening to it from start to finish really is a journey through all stages of our live show.”

Miss Vincent

Music Video: Cold Hands

Release Date: 02/05/17

EP SOMEWHERE ELSE​ Release Date: 19/05/17

“This video was a lot of fun to make. The whole thing is shot from one static angle, which is a nod to The Ramones’ I Wanna Be Sedated video and older styles of film making. We found this amazing place that looked like it hadn’t been touched since the 50s, with a really cool vintage vibe to it, and we changed almost nothing about the room to film in it. The song is about the almost addictive nature of sadness, how it can become a habit rather than a reaction, and we wanted to translate that as succinctly as possible into the video. We wanted to get across that feeling of being stuck in a rut, but also the ways to get out of it. We stuck a load of references to our favourite things too – from films like Forrest Gump, The Room, The Shining, (and even Spinal Tap), to books and graphic novels. Oh, and my cat Vincent is in it, and he totally steals the show.”​ – Alex Marshall, Vocal/Guitar

The EP showcases a sonic progression towards a fuller-throttled, punk influenced and more raw soundscape, which can be seen in COLD HANDS​ and previous single THE LOVERS​.

The band have also announced two shows to mark the release of their new EP SOMEWHERE ELSE​:

26th May – Joiners, Southampton

5th June – The Garage (Upstairs), London

Veridian are a 6 piece alt-rock band from Reading, Berkshire.

The band have been around less than a year and have already had coverage with BBC, Upset, Rock Sound, Scuzz, Punktastic and Kerrang Radio to name a few.

The talented UK band Veridian have released an X-Factor themed video for their latest single ‘Headlights’. The track is the second to be taken from the band’s debut EP 40826D, which was released on 12th May 2017. Their debut EP, named after the hue colour of the colour with the same name (albeit spelled Viridian), 40826D showcases a band who definitely aren’t green. Massive riffs and brilliantly ear-catching melodies combine to highly potent effect; darker and more dynamic than the band’s previous single releases. Glorious!

The Weight Of Atlas - Online Promo shot

The Weight Of Atlas

Music Video: The Art Of Letting Go

Release Date: 05/05/17

The Weight Of Atlas are a talented post-hardcore band based in Scotland who deliver monstrous riffs, contagious refrains, and ambient interludes that are framed with orchestral nuances. The inventive riff slingers, offering a unique and diverse take on the metalcore label, tower over the pack, possessing an astute ability to adeptly fuse and combine genres. The band extract influence from a host of areas, from the ferocity of Devil Wears Prada and the shimmering atmospherics and potency of Deftones, through to the guile of Underoath.

The Art Of Letting Go is taken from their forthcoming debut album out later this year. The Art Of Letting Go is a powerful statement and charts the band’s maturity and growth. With UK and EU touring penned for the latter part of the year, 2017 will be the band’s breakout year.

Music Video: Head To Toe

(Release Date: 25/02/17)

Single Release Date: 26/05/17

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXnXWLg4MMI

“Head To Toe” is a Krautrock Behemoth of a Track –

that has truly all the makings of an Electronic Classic and accompanied by yet another inspired Music Video directed by the Shmoo brothers.

The video to “Head To Toe” is very stylised and beautifully shot, with subtle links to previous videos “Ghost” and “Plastic Surgery”. In a year when we see a return of Blade Runner, have Shmoo now become robots themselves? With amazing sets and locations used, that wouldn’t seem out of place in a Stanley Kubrick film, this music video with a twist is cleverly executed, and complements the track brilliantly.

Before the album drops, London based GraVil pulls no punches with the introduction of lead track ‘Decommissioned’ (as featured on the latest Metal Hammer covermount cd).
Frontman Grant Stacey isn’t holding back with Gravil’s return to form, he said, “There is a massive sub-context of loss within the new album, with 2016 notably being a brutal year, however ‘No More Forgiveness’ pulls in a lot of strength from negativity that all too often engulfs our society and ways of life. It’s time to make a stand and do what’s right… and this is us, doing things right.”

ELASEA are a five-piece alternative rock band from Berkshire.

With a slight line up change after their debut EP release in 2015, the quintet have now found their edgy and unique sound. Over the past two years the band have been lucky enough to share the stage with the likes of Funeral For A Friend, AllUsOnDrugs, Veridian and Echoic, with continued support from BBC Introducing & other radio shows.

Breathe starts proceedings in spectacular fashion with its eerie beginnings, before hammering out a soaring riff that ideally accompanies Andy Bradford’s emotive voice. The track highlights the band’s thoughtful texturing with Liv Jones peppering the cut with her alluring vocals and Braydie Haskell’s adept use of synth.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FNs6WfRrv0&feature=youtu.be

Essex based alternative rock outfit Rob Jarvis & The Mercury Sons has just released their debut single ‘Just To Make You Happy’. The song achieved its first exclusive radio airplay on Alex Baker’s Fresh Blood Show – Kerrang Radio. The single release is only the beginning of the band, as their recent debut show in Newcastle was a sell out.

This single is perfectly showcasing Rob Jarvis’ incredible song writing ability; a dynamic rock track with light, shade and incredible passion, and an eclectic lick of originality.

Rob, lead vocalist and guitarist says “Our debut release ‘Just To Make You Happy’ hasn’t been shown to a great deal of people, but those who’ve encountered it during the ‘making of’ stages have made reference to all kinds of bands, certainly lots of reference to 90s rock, so we hope you all like it.”
