Too Close To Touch Share New Video “Before I Cave In”

Lexington, Kentucky band Too Close To Touch share a new song and video “Before I Cave In”.

Explains the band: “We’re happy to share our new single, ’Before I Cave In’ — a dark and emotive song that was cathartic for us to write. We wanted to push ourselves to try something new for this music video and explore making a light-hearted visual that was the polar opposite of that. Sometimes humor and the ability to laugh at yourself is the best form of self-medication.”

“Growing up in Chicago you learn a lot from the streets,” says vocalist Bryan Grantz. “Once you commit to a lifestyle there is no going back or backing down. You have to stand up for what you believe in through and through.”

The “Egotrip” album features guest vocalists such as John Hoffman (Weekend Nachos), Rob Watson (Lionheart), and Matt Honeycutt (Kublai Khan). Additionally, the band enlisted Chicago rappers MoeCyrus and Baer Coon the Ewokk.

“Recording ‘Egotrip’ was both an amazing and challenging experience,” says bassist Ryan Kramarz. “We knew we wanted to push ourselves as much as possible and let the sound come together organically. As a band, we aimed to take a big step away from the constraints of genres and expectations. We wanted to do something that we could indisputably call our own. We were also very fortunate to have so many talented friends to collaborate with. Every artist featured on this record are people we respect and love working with. Everyone brought something unique to the table and helped shape the overall sound of the album.”

Dead Shape Figure Checks In From The Recording Studio

Helsinki-based metallers Dead Shape Figure entered D-Studio in Nurmijärvi, Finland to record their third album. The production for the album is being handled by Xy from Swiss act Samael. The band commented:

“This is the first time ever Dead Shape Figure has used a real producer and done a proper preproduction. It is a fact you can really hear when the album is ready. We are super psyched about Mr Xy’s dedication for these new songs.

“The preproduction-stage took a week, 12 hours a day. That period with Mr. Xy was mentally really interesting yet challenging. He made us push ourselves as a band further and deeper than we would normally go. Xy made us act as a band and not as a mob.”

While recording the new album, Dead Shape Figure will also play selected festival shows during the summer. The band added, “We were not suppose to play any shows before the release of the next album but we got offered a few summer shows so we thought why not?”
