Reunited Traitors Debuts New Song “Lashing Out”

Florida outfit Traitors has officially reunited and debuts a new song entitled “Lashing Out”. Comments vocalist Tyler Shelton of it: “Nothing has me more excited than to be making music for all of our incredible fans again. ‘Lashing Out’ represents the emotion of reclusion. It’s about the person that you become if you give yourself too much time to think, and you bottle up all of your hate because you’ve got too much pride.

These past six months have been nothing but thinking for me. Thinking of you guys was a bittersweet feeling. We will continue to create music and as always, it’s coming from the heart. I am eager to show you all what’s been stuck so deeply inside of my mind on our upcoming record. We will travel to very dark depths, unraveling what happens to the human mind when you do nothing with yourself every day. I hope to see you all at our upcoming tour dates.”

Check out now “Lashing Out” below.

Says the band of its return:

“At the beginning of this year, we made the decision to lay Traitors to rest. Due to the departure of our vocalist Tyler, we felt it was best to end things the way they started, with the original founding members. Unfortunately life’s stresses had come into play & for most of us, trying to juggle our personal lives & the band after 5 constant years of nonstop grinding/hard work became a breaking point. Losing jobs, relationships, friends, homes & much more due to the intense amount focused on Traitors, eventually lead to problems & mixed emotions within the band which pushed to the decision to end the group & move on individually trying new things/finding more stability in our lives.

Sooner than later, the feeling of emptiness & regret began to grow in us. Days turned into weeks & into months, & more & more we began to realize just how much we missed this band & mostly, all of you. After careful planning & talking countless hours over the last couple weeks, we all decided there was no way in hell we can let this story end this way. So if you haven’t guessed just yet, we are very excited to announce that WE’RE BACK! & yes, with Tyler on vocals!!!

This wouldn’t have ever been possible if it wasn’t for the support we received from every single one of you while we were away. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for never stopping believing in us. We have a brand new single we will be dropping in the next few days & a tour announcement coming soon. Damn it’s good to be back ?? see you all soon!

–Traitors
(Tyler, Stephen & Alan)”

Fall Of Summer Festival 2017 Finalizes Lineup

The Fall Of Summer team is glad to reveal the complete lineup for the 2017 edition today, issuing this statement:

“First, we are happy to announce a very important band in the Fall Of Summer history, since they were the first band we announced in 2014 and gave us their trust when all of this was just a project and we’ll always be grateful for that. We are proud once more, to announce that British metal legends Venom are back in Torcy and you better be there!

“To continue with British bands from the 80s, they represent 30 years of crust all by themselves and we’re not even sure you are extreme enough to take it! So get ready to welcome Doom in September!

“Now we go a bit more north with Norwegian black metal legend Gaahl and his new band Gaahls Wyrd for a mesmerizing performance including songs from Gorgoroth, God Seed, and Trelldom.

“The last band of this announcement is French and you may not know it yet, but if you like black metal you will probably come back home from Fall If Summer with some of their albums, so we advise you to start listening now to Ende.”
