Underoath Premiere New Video “On My Teeth” & Announce New Album “Erase Me”

Underoath officially confirm their signing with Fearless Records. The group will have their first new full-length effort since 2010 out on April 06th via the label. That album was produced by Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, 3OH!3) and was mixed by Failure‘s Ken Andrews. It is entitled “Erase Me” and a clip for the first single from it, “On My Teeth“, has debuted below.

Comments the band’s drummer/vocalist Aaron Gillespie:

“We’ve had success and we’ve come through a lot of waters. There’s been 11,000 things we’ve been through so you would think, almost rhetorically, ‘What do you need now?’ All of us are finally in that place in our lives where the only thing we care about is inclusion for everybody—for the world. For me, exclusion is the scariest thing in the world.

And I think Underoath coming back now with a new record—which none of us thought was possible—we want people to know that this is your music and you can feel however the fuck you want about it. I just want to prove that we are doing everything in the most honest way we ever have. This is the healthiest we’ve ever been as a group of people, as musicians, and in our worldview.”

01 – “It Has To Start Somewhere”
02 – “Rapture”
03 – “On My Teeth”
04 – “Wake Me”
05 – “Bloodlust”
06 – “Sink With Me”
07 – “ihateit”

Primordial releases video for new single, “To Hell or the Hangman”

– February 20th, 2018 –

Irish Pagan Metal Gods Primordial will release their new album, Exile Amongst The Ruins, March 30th through Metal Blade Records. Teaming with producer Ola Ersfjord, who worked on Primordial‘s 2016 live album, Gods To The Godless, the record was tracked at Dublin’s Camelot Studios, located adjacent to their rehearsal room.

Primordial has now released the 2nd single from the album. To watch the video for “To Hell or the Hangman” (directed by Costin Chioreanu), please visit: youtube.com

Comments Primordial singer A.A. Nemtheanga: “In 1493 Walter Lynch was hanged by his own father James Lynch, Mayor of Galwayon on the West coast of Ireland for the murder of a young Spanish noblemen who was visiting the family home. He had fallen in love with a young woman by the name of Agnes in the Lynch of household and in a fit of jealous rage one night Walter took the young Spaniard’s life. The story goes that an angry ‘lynch mob’ took to the streets and barred the way to the usual execution spot so James took his son Walter and hung him with his bare hands from the open window into the street…He was lynched from the hanging sill. ‘To Hell or the Hangman’ is this story through Walter’s eyes, a tale of unrequited love with a murderous end. Enough drama for you? A curious and strange song for single number two from the new album, dark romanticism! so get on the dancefloor…”

– February 20th, 2018 –

Irish Pagan Metal Gods Primordial will release their new album, Exile Amongst The Ruins, March 30th through Metal Blade Records. Teaming with producer Ola Ersfjord, who worked on Primordial‘s 2016 live album, Gods To The Godless, the record was tracked at Dublin’s Camelot Studios, located adjacent to their rehearsal room.

Primordial has now released the 2nd single from the album. To watch the video for “To Hell or the Hangman” (directed by Costin Chioreanu), please visit: youtube.com

Comments Primordial singer A.A. Nemtheanga: “In 1493 Walter Lynch was hanged by his own father James Lynch, Mayor of Galwayon on the West coast of Ireland for the murder of a young Spanish noblemen who was visiting the family home. He had fallen in love with a young woman by the name of Agnes in the Lynch of household and in a fit of jealous rage one night Walter took the young Spaniard’s life. The story goes that an angry ‘lynch mob’ took to the streets and barred the way to the usual execution spot so James took his son Walter and hung him with his bare hands from the open window into the street…He was lynched from the hanging sill. ‘To Hell or the Hangman’ is this story through Walter’s eyes, a tale of unrequited love with a murderous end. Enough drama for you? A curious and strange song for single number two from the new album, dark romanticism! so get on the dancefloor…”

Once again building upon their signature sound, the follow up to 2014′s Where Greater Men Have Fallen is a more raw, “old school sounding” record than its predecessor. Hitting home with what vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga describes as “a direct energy” and wielding an urgency that is undeniable, the Irish quintet once again effortlessly blend elements of tragedy and might like no one else. Likewise, the evolution in their sound continues to be organic and unforced, ensuring that Exile Amongst The Ruins is essential listening for both their long term faithful and those only now drawn into their world.

1. Nail Their Tongues
2. To Hell or the Hangman
3. Where Lie the Gods
4. Exile Amongst the Ruins
