Trojans Releasing New Single “Dead Eyed Stare”

Sydney progressive metalcore outfit Trojans will release new single “Dead Eyed Stare” on November 25th, 2016 alongside a music video to also land in the coming weeks.

“Dead Eyed Stare” is a song about depression and the lives of the people who suffer every day with the horrible affliction. The track’s lyrics address the sufferer’s constant thoughts of suicide and life’s monotony – and the will and sheer strength required to beat it.

To celebrate the release of this single, the Trojans lads are launching two shows in NSW: Port Macquarie’s Youth Hub gets an all ages show on December 10th and Sydney’s Destroy All Lines club MMRS gets a show on December 17th.

Ufomammut Recording New Album

Italian psychedelic power trio Ufomammut is currently in the process of forging an eighth LP, following the band’s 2015 epic for Neurot Recordings, “Ecate.”

The band is knuckling down at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, just north of Milan, the first time recording with soundlord Ciccio and his comrades of Femore Production. Having spent much of the past year refining exploratory jam sessions to make them fit for an intended purpose, expect more of the band’s dense, organic riffing to emerge in 2017, with teasers on the way soon.

Having just wrapped up a European tour which included dates with Neurosis and fellow countrymen Grime, Ufoammut has its sights set on Australia and New Zealand, and will be traveling there in early October with the masters of doom tone, Monolord.

Opeth Announces NY, London, and Sydney Live Shows

Opeth will release 12th studio album, “Sorceress,” on September 30th via the band’s imprint label Moderbolaget Records alongside Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

In celebration of this release, the band has planned special shows at historic venues around the world, including Radio City Music Hall in New York on October 1st, Wembley Arena in London on November 19th and the famed Sydney Opera House on February 6th, 2017.

These memorable performances also celebrate the recent release of Opeth’s “Deliverance & Damnation” box set, featuring the classic 2002 and 2003 records as one complete work as originally intended.

Opeth will be performing music from the upcoming album as well as fan favorite cuts from the band’s celebrated catalog and closing the shows with a special set featuring material from “Deliverance & Damnation.” Mikael Akerfeldt comments:

“We’re getting pumped up for the coming ‘Sorceress’ world tour. We have 3 shows scheduled that are quite out of the ordinary due to their legendary status and location. The SSE Wembley Arena in London/UK. Radio City Music Hall in New York/USA, and the famous Sydney Opera House/Australia.

“These three shows will be completely unique in terms of songs, spanning over 2 separate set lists. We’ll pull out songs from our back catalogue and mix it up with newer stuff during the first set. The 2nd set will consist of songs exclusively from the ‘Deliverance/Damnation’ records, that was just celebrated with a re-release combo package by the newly revived Music For Nations label.

“So it’s a little bit of a celebration indeed! We’ll only play this set list 3 times on the whole world tour, so if you miss it, you’ll have missed it. Of course all other shows will be treated with the same amount of respect and we’ll chisel out a nice diverse set list spanning over our entire career for every single show during the tours. We very much hope to see you there!”
