– October 19th, 2018 –

Epic Melodic Death Metallers Nothgard have just released their third video clip in support of their upcoming new album, Malady X, which is due out next Friday (Oct. 26th)! Head over to youtu.be/LIE8UWi7oV8 to watch the video for “Fall Of An Empire”!

Bandleader Dom R. Crey comments about “Fall Of An Empire”: “Finally the time has come and we can share the third single with you. ‘Fall Of An Empire’ was a real challenge for us, but it was worth it. We flew specially to Rome and shot there in an absolutely brilliant location, a sulfur desert, and simply wanted to breathe life into the intention of the lyrics and to do justice to them. ‘Fall Of An Empire’ is symbolic of many things that concern us. Packed in a thriller-like story with great actors, a video you should not miss out on!”

Bad Wolves Premiere New Music Video For “No Masters” – Recruit Fill-In Singers At Birmingham, UK Show

Bad Wolves premiere a new official music video for their track “No Masters” which was directed by Randy Edwards.

Check it out below:

In other news, the group had to recruit Stars from Bang Bang Romeo and Austin Dickinson of As Lions to fill in for their singer Tommy Vext during ltheir October 04th Birmingham, UK show of their current European/UK tour with Three Days Grace.

Vext was hospitalized this week two days into the tour for a severe bronchial infection. Comments Vext on that matter:

“Life is unpredictable. If anyone knows this, it’s me. More often than not, the universe throws a wrench in the best laid plans.

This is our first trip to play shows in Europe as a band. Nothing could prepare us for the excitement and gratitude we felt for the opportunity to come over and play for the UK and EU fans who have waited so long to see us. So imagine my disappointment when a few days ago I began feeling ill to the point I knew something was wrong enough that I had to seek medical treatment – and to accept the doctors’ advice that I not play the show in Birmingham.

But as the old adage goes, “the show must go on” and luckily I have a lot of people in my life who love and support me and my band. On a moment’s notice, Stars from the Doncaster band Bang Bang Romeo and Austin Dickinson from London based As Lions agreed to learn the set list in under 24 hours, travel to Birmingham and play the show for no money, just because they believe in us and because they know we would do the same for them. I certainly understand this sentiment. I had to fill in as the vocalist for Five Finger Death Punch on several occasions.

It is not easy to sit the Birmingham show out. But this is bigger than just me. It’s about the fans and about our commitment to Three Days Grace. As I lie here, wishing I were feeling better, those thoughts of pity are overshadowed completely by my sense of wonder at the kindness and generosity of the human spirit and the power of music to bring people together. Thank you for all the support – I’ll be back asap, in bigger, better fighting shape. I would personally like to thank the NHS and all the doctors and nurses who assisted me for their amazing service.”

See below for some footage of the band playing with Dickinson on vocals during the aforementioned show. Dickinson himself commented:

“When Tommy called me I thought he was a joking but as it turns he needed a brother to lend a hand. So here we are doing for Tommy what he’s done for many others. He owes me now and I will wait until I get ill in Siberia to ask him to return the favour.”

Remaining dates for the tour are as follows:

10/05 Bristol, UK – St. Philips Gate
10/07 London, UK – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire
10/08 Glasgow, UK – SWG3

The time has come to unleash the second single and music video, this time in 4k quality! ‘Epitaph’ is a very special song for me. Based on the concept of constant struggle in a world where all of us need to find their places. Sometimes this can be tough and very often some of us have the feeling of not being part of this world – or do not even want to be part. Song-wise ‘Epitaph’ is one of my favorite tracks on this album. But before I tell too much I would rather recommend you to check out the video and song.”
