Harm’s Way will be touring in support of their new album, Posthuman. Having grown with each subsequent release, Posthuman is a devastating addition to the band’s catalog. “We’ve always stayed true to who we are and allowed the songwriting process to take shape organically from record to record, and as the band has progressed, our sound has become more refined with metal and industrial influences,” states drummer Chris Mills, while guitarist Bo Lueders succinctly sums up what people can expect when they first spin the record: “To a Harm’s Way fan, I would describe ‘Posthuman‘ as a blend of ‘Isolation‘(2011) and ‘Rust‘ (2015), but it’s sonically way more insane. To anyone else, I would simply say it’s full on heavy and full on aggression.”

To preview and purchase Posthuman, please visit: metalblade.com/harmsway

Chris Mills – drums

Monte Pittman releases new video playlist for each track on ‘Inverted Grasp of Balance’

– May 7th, 2018 –

Announces Los Angeles and New York dates

Photo credit: Travis Colbert

There are great guitarists, great vocalists and great songwriters, but Monte Pittman is one of the elite few who can truly lay claim to all three titles. With his fourth full-length, Inverted Grasp of Balance (2016), he once again raised the stakes, delivering a riveting collection of full force metal that showcases his continuing evolution. Now, fans can watch a video playlist for each track on the album here: youtube.com

Monte Pittman comments: “We are finally releasing the remainder of videos filmed for ‘Inverted Grasp Of Balance‘. It started out as an idea Travis Colbert had about filming me as a project when he was with me playing my solo shows. Travis has been documenting content for the app, Bravo Tip Or Pay, that I use to sell tickets and merchandise at my shows. Don Jamieson had an idea for ‘Skeleton Key’, I had to climb up on a mountain of rocks luckily not getting eaten by a bunch of rattlesnakes for ‘Arisen In Broad Daylight’, and we filmed ‘Panic Attack’ in the certified haunted Logan Mansion. Along with the videos that have already been released (featuring Leanna Decker, Billy Sheehan, & Richard Christy), you can now watch the entire album. This completes the cycle for ‘Inverted Grasp Of Balance‘”.

To finish off the Inverted Grasp Of Balance album cycle, Monte Pittman will also play shows in Los Angeles and New York next month, performing The Power Of Three (2014) and Inverted Grasp Of Balance in their entirety. See below for more details.

Monte Pittman live
June 2nd – Los Angeles, CA – Unfriendly Studios (1992 E 20th St Unit 13, Vernon, CA 90058)
* get tickets through the Bravo Tip Or Pay app
June 9th – New York, NY – VNYL (100 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10003)
* get tickets through the Bravo Tip Or Pay app

Cyhra Debut New Video “Here To Save You” – Bassist Peter Iwers (Ex-In Flames) Exits Band

Cyhra debut a new live video for their track “Here To Save You“. Explains the band’s vocalist Jake E: “Releasing “Here To Save You” as a live video was something that we thought of already after finishing up the song in the demo studio. And as we got the possibility to open up for Sabaton and Kreator a couple of months back it was a no-brainer to just make sure to put it on film.

I love how we were able to capture all the positive response, both within the band but also all the love we got for our newfound fans in the US & Canada. Every time I watch it I just want to go back out on the road! I hope you will like it as much as we do!”

In other news, Cyhra’s bassist Peter Iwers (ex-In Flames) has stepped down from the band. Iwers was joined in the band by former In Flames guitarist Jesper Strömblad. Comments the band on Iwers‘ departure:

“It’s sad to part ways with Peter as a member, but we are still very good friends and will always be. He has our full support in this decision and we wish him nothing else than the best in the future!”

Cyhra won’t immediately be replacing Iwers and will instead have his backing tracks in place at their immediate upcoming shows.

Twitching Tongues announces North American tour with Code Orange, Vein, and more

**=w/ Ghostemane
#=w/ Disembodied
##=w/ Nicole Dollanganger
%=w/ Show Me The Body

The title for Twitching Tongues‘ fourth full-length, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, was drawn from a quote by famed social philosopher Eric Hoffer – “Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life” – and it reflects the band’s mentality in approaching the record: paying homage to those who supported them while belligerently responding to their detractors. With “failure” as a core theme driving Colin Young’s lyrics, it also features his first foray into the political arena, motivated by the contemporary political climate to speak his mind. Directly inspired by film scores, the record has a strong epic feel, the band realizing their vision of having the music flow like a story being told. With interconnected parts, musical references and callbacks in each song, everything is tied together in a manner unlike any of their previous releases. At the same time, while maintaining the same levels of hardness and aggression that has characterized their later work, it features much more immediate and memorable melodies, which evoke the sound of In Love There Is No Law yet at the same time feel fresh and new.

Colin Young – Vocals
Taylor Young – Guitar/Vocals
Sean Martin – Guitar
