Ninjaspy Updates Canadian Tour Schedule

Stray From The Path Finishes Recording New Album

On a mission to bring honest, pissed off music to the world, Long Island New York’s Stray From The Path just completed recording a next full-length offering that follows the band’s 2015 release “Subliminal Criminals.”

The band recorded once more with Will Putney, who also produced, mixed, and mastered the yet-to-be-titled studio release at Graphic Nature Audio out of Belleville New Jersey, with additional vocal production from Jesse Barnett of Stick To Your Guns.

Vocalist Drew York comments on the recording process: “Having our new drummer Craig Reynolds in the studio made for a different experience going into it, but Craig is an absolute maniac and he smashed it!! We also pushed ourselves harder than we ever have before working 12, sometimes 16 hours a day; there was a couple of times I thought I was losing my mind haha.

“Going back to Will Putney was an obvious choice for us because he is a genius and plays a huge part in the aesthetic of this band. We also had our good friend Jesse Barnett do some vocal production and it was great having him there, shooting ideas around, and getting involved with everything.

“To wrap it up, if I could describe the record in a few words I would say that it is the heaviest, most pissed off, and relentless record this band has ever made. And that makes me very happy.”

Catch Stray From The Path live in North America as direct support to Architects on the “All Our Gods Have Abandoned U s” tour that just kicked off on March 7th in Detroit, MI and wraps up on April 6th in Toronto, Ontario Canada.

Swallow The Sun’s Juha Raivio Comments On Absence From Live Shows

Fans catching Swallow The Sun live recently have noticed that long time guitarist Juha Raivio has been curiously absent, with Juho Räihä standing in his place. Today Raivio issued the following statement about the situation:

“As people are asking all the time from me if I have quit Swallow the Sun, or why am I not playing live with the band anymore, here is some answers for you. Answer is of course not. I formed the band 17 years ago and have written 8 STS albums and one EP altogether since then. I would love nothing more than play live for you as that is where my heart is, but life didn’t go that way.

“This music and the lyrics are just too personal to go in front of the people at the moment and rip your heart open again and again. I hope you understand. Maybe one day. But please go and support the boys on tour and show your love to Juho Räihä who has been doing great job filling in for me. Take care now.”

To The Wind Posts “Can’t Stay (My Love)” Music Video

Hardcore/metal band To The Wind today debuts a brand new music video for the song “Can’t Stay (My Love).” Watch the official video clip now in the player below. Tanner Murphy (vocals) had this to say:

“We could’ve made videos for every song because they all have significant meaning and we love them all. But, we chose this one in particular because the lyrics express feelings about touring year after year consistently. In the beginning touring is all I wanted to do because i felt that it was all I had. I thought it was the only thing that made me happy. In the last couple years something slightly changed.

“As I grew I started having regrets in my personal life. I feel there is a lot I’ve missed out on because of the constant traveling, but at the same time I feel very accomplished because of all the things I’ve had the chance to do and see. I wrote most of this song while we were in Toronto recording the record. A lot of my raw emotions were invested into the song. I was very vulnerable and didn’t have much time to filter anything out. This song to me is kind of my anthem to all different aspects of my life both on and off the road.”

“Can’t Stay (My Love)” is featured on To The Wind’s latest album, “The Brighter View,” which is available now from Pure Noise Records.
