Sifting Releases “Nothing But Us” Music Video

Venezuelan-American progressive metal outfit Sifting just released an emotional video for new single “Nothing But Us.” The video deals with challenging social issues such as bullying and rejection, by showing that it’s okay to be yourself, no matter what society expects of you.

The video was directed by Alejandro Fumero Gil, and “Nothing But Us” is the second single taken from upcoming full-length album “Not From Here.” The album was produced by Ryan Williams (Velvet Revolver, Rage Against the Machine), and Steve Evetts (Senses Fail, Suicide Silence), and is planned for worldwide release on September 29th, 2017 via Eclipse Records.

“Sometimes, we feel like we may not fit in, or that we are pushed to be something or someone other than who we are” says vocalist Eduardo Gil. “It’s easy to get so wrapped up in pleasing our friends, families, and co-workers, that we actually forget who we are. How can we enjoy life if we aren’t true to ourselves? We wrote this song about these feelings, to remind people that being different and unique is what makes life exciting. Without individuality, the world would be a very boring place. Our message to everyone is to find yourself and follow your heart. Only you know what that is… once you figure that out, go and take it!”

Tengger Cavalry Posts New Song “Cursed”

Global Music Award-winning nomadic folk metal group Tengger Cavalry has already released two new singles from upcoming album, “Die On My Ride,” which is due out June 2nd via M-Theory Audio.

Those previous tracks, entitled “Die On My Ride” and “Ashley,” portray two very different sides of the band, both musically and conceptually.

Today, Tengger Cavalry is introducing a third track into the mix. “Cursed” is a more introspective look at breaking down personal barriers risen by oneself and others. Check it out below.

“‘Cursed’ is about breaking barriers,” says frontman Nature G. “Society has always put up different mental and physical barriers barring individuals just trying to achieve their dreams. You are too short, you are minority, you are a female not a man, you are from somewhere else, you don’t look good enough.

“All these disadvantages that we think we are born with, are like a curse to us. We are cursed for believing these barriers, aren’t we? No, we are not. We need to break this barrier of belief. We need to strike it and claim who we are supposed to be. Cursed, or rise above the curse.”

Hollow Streaming “Anomaly” Single

U.S. metalcore quartet Hollow (not to be confused with the Canadian black/death metal band of the same name) has released debut single “Anomaly.” The single comes from upcoming debut album “Home Isn’t Where The Heart Is,” which is set to release on June 9th.

The band formerly known as Hollow Heart mixes together a variety of styles on this release for a modern metal sound. Pre-orders are online here and bassist / vocalist John Flynn comments:

“‘Home Is Not Where The Heart Is’ was originally going to be a concept album, and these lyrics were the only ones we kept after we decided against that. It’s all about how bleak the future looks. They describe all of humanity being narrowed down to one big city that’s sucking up the rest of our natural resources. So inside the walls everything looks fine, but the rest of world is just a big desert. It’s very Mad Max and it’s very Matrix.”
