Adrian Pain & The Dead Sexy Releasing “Mixed Messages” EP

Adrian Pain & The Dead Sexy’s new EP “Mixed Messages” is dropping this Friday, February 10th via indie label All-Core Records, who also commented:

“The EP continues the band’s solid chemistry of an ‘Allcore’ metal sound with emotionally stirring and socially conscious lyrics. Evolving from past EPs, 2014’s ‘Picture Day At Night School’ and their 2013 debut ‘The First One Is Free’ along with Adrian Pain’s solo full length 2012’s ‘Love Letters & Suicide Notes,’ ‘Mixed Messages’ is a mixture of Adrian Pain’s solo work and The Dead Sexy’s band work with subtle messages that they hope would help their fans deal with negativity in different aspects of their lives.”

The band also had this to say: “This release is like the gateway drug to metal and heavier music in general! We appeal to a very wide range of musical tastes so guys can play us for their girlfriends, and girls can play us for the guys. If you identify another way, you can play us for whomever you’d like. If any negative response comes out of it, it’ll be the fans that expect every song to get heavier with each effort.

“What I hope they notice is the constant evolution of our sound. The music itself is getting more and more diverse and progressive, while the song structures are also evolving into bigger, more complex arrangements. I want everyone that listens to this record to feel an emotional connection. I want people to relate to, and hear the MESSAGE in each track.”

Reality Slap Posts “Haymaker” Video

Portuguese hardcore outfit Reality Slap has released a video for “Haymaker” below, taken off the “Limitless” EP set for release this Friday the 13th through War Records, the label founded by Andrew Kline of Strife.

Combining the best of old-school aggression with a modern hardcore vibe, Reality Slap’s songs are full of tight riffs, heavy grooves, and always pack a massive punch. Issues Reality Slap of the new single:

“‘Haymaker’ is a metaphoric punch to human attitude towards life and other beings. It’s really a call out to everyone who chooses not to feel, who chooses to ignore what’s going on around them because they’re too entertained and blinded by all the material shit that’s put in front of them. We still want to feel and we still want to see, that’s life, connection is key, there’s more life beyond. We can always do better and find a better narrative to address problems and life itself. We choose not to ignore by approaching life with a smile and against human numbness.”
