Atreyu Premiere New Official Music Video “In Our Wake”

Atreyu premiere a new official music video for the title track to their new effort “In Our Wake“. That album will be out October 12th via Search & Destroy/Spinefarm.

Says the band’s bassist Porter McKnight of this latest video:

“With this music video, we wanted our longtime director friend Sean Stiegemeie to come up with something completely unlike anything we’ve done before. We wanted to leave the viewer with a feeling of ‘What the fuck did I just watch!?’ and then play it again to deduce what went down.

Most of our videos have been story-based or life-based. But with this, we just wanted the subtle thread of humanity’s growth and decline. It starts with water, then earth, nature, cityscapes, then slowly decaying humanity. We have a choice as a species to start giving a shit about ourselves and the world around us, and what we choose to make of this life.”

Bullet For My Valentine Premiere New Music Video “Letting You Go”

Bullet For My Valentine premiere a music video for their latest single, “Letting You Go“. Director Stuart Birchall (Bring Me The Horizon, Architects) directed the video.

June 29th has been scheduled as the release date for the group’s upcoming new effort “Gravity“, which will be out in stores via Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records.

Comments vocalist Matt Tuck of the song:

“‘Letting You Go‘ was a very challenging song to write in so many ways. It’s by far the most experimental track I’ve ever written musically and lyrically. I really wanted to make a track that stood out from the crowd and separated us from any other band in our genre, and that’s exactly what ‘Letting You Go‘ does.”

New Song “Evansville” Issued By Withered Bones

Take a listen to “Evansville” in the player below, the first song from Withered Bones’ forthcoming album “In Search Of Self-Evidence” coming December 8th from Blood & Ink Records.

Withered Bones stepped back and looked within in an attempt to evoke genuine change. The band returns later this year with the results of that change via the new album, “In Search Of Self-Evidence.” The effort is filled with anxiety and discontentment, but those aggressive emotions aren’t without purpose. Taking notes from 2013’s wave of melodic hardcore, the band addresses a multitude of unpopular topics head-on, including issues within the church, social discontentment, and self-discovery. “In Search of Self-Evidence” is a journey to find answers for questions many of us don’t want to ask. Will you be listening?

Triptykon Seeking New Drummer, Announces Festival Shows

Triptykon made the following statement announcing upcoming festival appearances and the search for a new drummer:

“We feel very honored to have been invited to play Spain’s Leyendas del Rock and Germany’s Party.San festivals this August. Both festivals hold a unique significance for Triptykon: our concert at Leyendas del Rock will mark the first time Triptykon will play in Spain, fulfilling a desire we have had for quite some time.

“The return to Party.San is equally important for us. Triptykon’s first appearance at the festival, in August of 2011, was heavily marred by the unexpected shutdown of the main stage due to storm damage, and by a number of local organizational issues. Party.San is a truly extraordinary festival in our eyes, and we feel privileged and delighted to be given the opportunity to finally honour it with a proper concert.

“But these two festivals are significant to us for yet another, far more personal reason. These will be the final concerts we will play with our drummer, Norman Lonhard. Norman joined Triptykon in December of 2008, thereby completing the freshly formed band. He recorded two acclaimed albums, an EP, and a single with the group, appeared in all of Triptykon’s video clips, and performed uncounted concerts around the globe with us.

“We are proud of Triptykon’s exceedingly stable line-up, not least in light of some of the events that transpired in Triptykon’s predecessor, Celtic Frost. It reflects Triptykon’s internal spirit of harmony that this first departure of a member of the group occurs in true friendship and deep mutual respect. After eight and a half years of invoking supreme darkness with Triptykon onstage and in the studio, Norman has indicated his desire to explore different musical avenues in the future. It is a wish we fully understand, of course, but also one we bemoan on a personal level.

“We all wish Norman the very best for any and all of his future endeavours. He will forever remain one of us. Triptykon is thus now looking for a new drummer, before continuing work on the group’s third album and returning to the world’s stages. We are taking the required technical capabilities for granted, and we are completely open with regard to age and female and male applicants. Of decisive importance to us, however, are uniqueness, an unrestricted musical horizon, creativity, artistic courage, a stable and professional personality, and an appearance that reflects the group’s music and unique historic background.

“Interested parties may contact Triptykon through this e-mail address: triptykonswitzerland[at]gmx.ch. Please note that this e-mail address will only respond to serious inquiries regarding the above mentioned topic.”

Ninjaspy Streaming Full New Album “Spüken”

Vancouver’s Ninjaspy released lastest album “Spüken” last week, which was again produced by GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mudvayne, Gallows) and Ben Kaplan (Biffy Clyro, Atreyu, Haste the Day).

In celebration of its relesae, a full stream premiere of the album has come online and can be heard below. Vocalist / guitarist Joel Parent comments:

“‘Spüken’ is the musical equivalent of a magician removing his own entrails. The guts just keep coming, like handkerchiefs from a sleeve, and its painful, colourful and cathartic all at once, in the same way that vomiting after hours of nausea is such a relief. The musical ideas that came together in this project span many years and come from many influences. Hearing them all together is a trip.

“There were a lot of hard times in the years while this record was being written and most, if not all of these songs are tied together by the search for something greater than oneself. Empowerment by going through ones pain, all this is woven into an album that is another spastic stylistic roller coaster not unlike our previous albums, but with smoother blending.

“From song to song there is a lot of variance, but within songs we have managed to take contrasting genres and combine them in more nuanced ways, with less hard cuts. This album is colourful, and the palette is dark.”
