Turncoat Releases “American Dream” Music Video

Michigan hardcore outfit Turncoat just released a new music video for latest single “American Dream.” The video has a 90’s home video-like vibe of the band’s home town showing raw footage from the Detroit area.

This single comes by way of the group’s Eulogy Recordings, 2016 self-titled EP and was recently selected to be on Metal Hammer’s New Noise compilation album. Guitarist Keith Keister comments:

“‘American Dream’ is groovy, fast paced, straight forward example of exactly what we’re trying to convey as a band. Off our Eulogy Records debut EP, it’s definitely one of my favorites live and on the recording. This video gives a simple 90s-ish home video vibe and show cases some of the places we drive by, live near or see in our everyday life in Michigan and shows us in a very raw and back to basics perspective.”

Berserker III 2016 Festival Lineup Announced

This March, the Masonic Temple in Detroit, Michigan will play host to the annual Berserker Music Fest.

Now in its third year, the event – a truly DIY affair founded and organized by Child Bite frontman Shawn Knight and wife Veronica – Berskerer III boasts its most devouring lineups to date with the all-ages three-night/three-stage gala.

Appearances will be made by internationally touring acts like Voivod, Ghoul, Conan, Macabre, Cannabis Corpse and Black Tusk as well as a spattering of new and established Michigan-based artists like Acid Witch, Child Bite, Perversion and Shit Life.

Comments Knight, “It’s a fucking blast putting this thing together. Veronica and I pick all of the bands and organize the entire weekend. I handle all of the art and a lot of the promotion side too. It’s a metric shit ton of work and it’s really stressful, but in the end it’s all worth it. We’re basically just making something that we wish was already had; a bit of the ol’ ‘if you build it, they will come.’ I spent a lot of time at various metal fests last year, either playing them with Child Bite or simply attending them. It’s great to see what works, what doesn’t, and just in general let it affect how we plan our next event. This is our biggest lineup yet, and our biggest venue, so I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!”

Sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon, VGKids, ESP Printing, UHF Records, CJAM 99.1 FM and Woodward Avenue Brewers, Berserker III will take place on March 3rd, 4th, and 5th with a special FREE PreSerker kickoff party slated to take place at Small’s (Hamtramck) on Wednesday, March 2nd featuring eight bands on two stages.
