TesseracT Premieres New Song & Music Video “Smile” & Kicks Off Tour With Megadeth And Meshuggah

TesseracT premieres a new song and music video titled “Smile”, which the band recorded during the late spring of this year with producer Acle Kahney. Comments vocalist Daniel Tompkins:

“Lyrically, ‘Smile‘ carries a strong and forward sense of irony as we explore and darkest side of the human condition. The song will witness the manifestation of an ‘entity.’ Consciousness survives through constant manipulation only to propagate pessimism and hopelessness. Our entity observes, consumes and evolves, bearing witness to human existence, mimicking our presence in colossal form.”

Check out now “Smile” below.

Adds bassist Amos Williams:

“We chose this track as although it is part of a greater theme, and is in fact towards the end of a story arc, it stands alone very well. We have a solid idea of where we would like to take this track on the next album as it is in no way finished. It is merely one step in a journey. The verses and choruses stand very far apart from each other. There is a tension we wished to build through a minimalist approach, with small phrases that repeat against accompanying parts of different lengths. These undulate, seemingly getting lost against the nonconventional phrasing of the drums. All this is nothing new to TesseracT fans, but this time we have looked to really align the lyrical and musical messages.”

TesseracT is currently out touring with Megadeth, Meshuggah and Lillake:

06/25 Boston, MA – House Of Blues
06/27 Philadelphia, PA – The Fillmore
06/28 Portsmouth, VA – Portsmouth Pavilion
06/29 Silver Spring, MD – The Fillmore
06/30 Columbus, OH – Express Live

07/07 Saint Charles, MO – Family Arena
07/08 Oklahoma City, OK – The Zoo Amphitheatre
07/09 Houston, TX – Reventon Music Center

Weapons Of Anew Gearing Up For North American Tour Dates

Weapons of Anew will make its live debut touring with Alter Bridge and special guest Nonpoint during “The Last Hero” tour from January 24th through February 14th, 2017.

Upon confirmation of the tour, Weapon’s of Anew guitarist Freddy Ordine said, “It’s truly an honor! I’m excited for guitarists that are into this type of music. It’s really going to be a shred fest – all the band’s have really great players in them.”

“As a singer,” Ray West stated, “I think that Myles Kennedy and Elias Soriano are both at the top of their game, so I have great respect for both bands. It’s safe to say the bar is set very high for us and I live for that! I consider playing a live show with both bands a privilege.”

When asked what it means to perform live, Ordine states, “Pure energy!!! It’s better than any other feeling I know.” West puts it this way, “an intense energy that compares to nothing else!”

Late last year, Weapons of Anew released debut single and video “Killshot” via OK!Good Records. The band members are psyched to have people hear Weapons of Anew music, with West further commenting “We are a solid unit, packed into a big ole can of whoop ass!”

Dangerkids Premieres Title Track Of Upcoming New Album “blacklist_”

Dangerkids premieres the title track of the band’s upcoming new album “blacklist_”, which will be out in stores January 27th via Paid Vacation.

Check out now “blacklist_” below.

Frontman Tyler Smyth commented of the effort:

“‘blacklist_‘ is significant to us for a lot of reasons, but mostly because it marks a new beginning for dangerkids. It’s dark and it’s pissed off, but most importantly, it’s us deciding to not follow so many of the rules that held us down the first time around. We’re a band that’s been pulled around a lot of different ways and been told what to do by a lot of different people, but we’ve decided that that ends now. If anything, ‘
