Video Clip For New Song “Hollow Chains” Posted By Shattered Sun

With a week away from the release of “The Evolution Of Anger,” the second album for Victory Records, modern metal act Shattered Sun has unveiled the video for the new single “Hollow Chains.” Perfectly outlining the demise of cultural and social consciousness, the video also exhibits the ferociousness Shattered Sun is known to deliver on stage.

“Everyone hides behind a keyboard nowadays, and ‘Hollow Chains’ is a call for individuals to take back their identity,” prompts Shattered Sun vocalist Marcos Leal. “Everyone seems to take their arguments to the digital front and fight unnecessary battles between each other every day. All of a sudden any particular event takes away our identities as human beings and replaces it with a close-minded, cold-hearted dismissal of another person that disagrees. It’s fueling the divide by turning us on each other. Take away unity and replace it with the ‘every man for himself’ attitude, and it creates a hollow chain around us all.”

Check out “Hollow Chain” here:

Shattered Sun will channel fury to the stages beginning with a hometown album release show on July 20th with label-mates Darkness Divided, and then join the 2017 Vans Warped Tour on July 26th outside of St. Louis, MO, and round out the tour on its final date in Pomona, CA on August 6th. Additional dates supporting “The Evolution Of Anger” will be announced soon.

Confirmed dates are:

07/20 – Corpus Christi, TX @ Brewster Street Ice House (Album Release Show)
07/26 – Maryland Heights, MO @ Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre (Vans Warped Tour)
07/27 – Bonner Springs, KS @ Providence Medical Center Amphitheatre (Vans Warped Tour)
07/28 – Dallas, TX @ Starplex Pavilion (Vans Warped Tour)
07/29 – San Antonio, TX @ AT&T Center (Vans Warped Tour)
07/30 – Houston, TX @ NRG Park (Vans Warped Tour)
08/01 – Las Cruces, NM @ NMSU Intramural Field (Vans Warped Tour)
08/04 – Mountain View, CA @ Shoreline Amphitheatre (Vans Warped Tour)

Ancient Gearing Up For Latin American Tour Dates

Reactivated Norwegian group Ancient just announced their cities and dates for a Latin American tour kicking off on September 7th in Mexico. Frontman Zel stated:

“We are very excited and proud to announce the Ancient tour in Latin America in September. This has in many ways been a dream come true for us, to finally tour this corner of the world. The tour that took place in 2007 was not with a full band line-up and I was not even there myself, but this time we will bring the most powerful and energetic line up Ancient has ever had, with Mr. Nick Barker himself on the drums!

“A lot of fans from countries like Honduras, Puerto Rico, Bolivia, Venezuela and especially Brazil, have been writing to us asking why we will not visit these places during the tour. The thing is, that it does not depend on the band, we would play in every single country if we had the chance. These decisions are always made by the booking agency and the local promoters in each country. Sometimes the expenses (especially with travelling) are simply too high to make it happen, but we will do our best to return again with an even bigger tour next time! Let’s keep the Ancient spirit alive!”

The Convalescence Kicked Off Otep’s “The Resistance” Tour

Yet another band has run afoul of performing live with Otep on the road.

After that ugliness during the “Civil Unrest” tour a few years back and a handful of instances in the interim, The Convalescence has now been kicked off the “Resistance” tour by Otep.

The Convalescence issued this statement about the situation:

“We will no longer be a part of the remaining dates of ‘The Resistance Tour’ with Otep. After years spent on the road touring worldwide and never having a problem, this is a first. Otep kicked us off the tour after already loading in for tonight’s event in Pittsburgh. This stemming from an alleged incident that occurred in Michigan two nights previously where claims were made that we sold merchandise during the intro of their set.

“This was not the first time being threatened to remove us from the tour. First happening in Jacksonville, FL after their driver accused us of buying weed from venue staff the night before and went as far as to say we forced a venue runner to drive with him and a kid in the car to pick it up. This was in an attempt to take the heat off the driver himself because he called the police on the band’s guitarist after an argument between them that morning.

“In both instances, we were unable to explain or make any attempt to approach the situation since even after 50+ dates as direct support – unless she felt the need to threaten to kick us off the tour and belittle us, we weren’t even allowed in the same room.

“After being told we were not needed on the tour, that we were not helping the attendance, we were simply a time filler and countless other negative comments about us being part of this tour we came to a mutual decision that we could no longer share a stage together.

“We are all about being team players on the road. After going out of our way with things like covering her merch table every night during their set, helping the band with security at understaffed venues, and helping her band and crew load in and out daily. We were met with only disrespect from Otep herself.

“We have no hard feelings towards her hired band and crew but Otep is an absolute nightmare to work with. Again, we apologize to any of our fans that had planned to see us on this tour. Thanks for your continued support and we’ll see you on the road this Fall!”

Otep, of course, had a different take on the situation, issuing this video response:

A member of the band also commented on the video: “Let’s be clear on something, while the whole incident with selling of merch is going to be looked at as the straw that broke the camel’s back, Otep wasn’t looking to kick the Convalescence off the tour. In fact, Otep instead came up with that the Convalescence and Brand of Julez switch places in the lineup for the last few days Brand of Julez was on the tour.

“Brand of Julez was only playing selected dates on the tour, and they only had 5 or 6 shows left with the tour. After that, everything would have went back in terms of the lineup, but the Convalescence was having none of it. So this isn’t people trying to say Otep got pissed because they sold merch during Otep’s set and thus kicked them off the tour. They’d still be on the tour with Otep if they just did the lineup change for a few shows.”

Five Finger Death Punch Issues Statement On Tilburg Show, Vocalist Situation

Full news has now come online of just what was going down at the disaster of the Five Finger Death Punch Tilburg show and what’s going on with the group’s vocalist situation.

Five Finger Death Punch will continue the current European tour without Ivan Moody. Tommy Vext will appear in his place.

Ivan himself issued this statement: “I am embarrassed and ashamed to admit that I have fallen off the wagon again. I was on shaky ground prior to our performance in Tilburg, and although a lot of the events of that show were out of my control, the shame of not delivering pushed me over the edge. It would not be fair to my bandmates or my fans to continue to perform in my current condition. One of the worst parts of addiction is the loneliness you feel, so having the support of my band and all the knuckleheads is what drives me. I am committed to getting better so I can get back out on stage as soon as possible.”

Zoltan Bathory has released a new message explaining what happened during the concert: “As you probably know by now – the show 2 days ago in Tilburg was an avalanche of clusterfucks – a crew member rolled the intro without verifying if we were all present – we were half way into the first song when we realized that – Ivan wasn’t even in the building yet.

“To save the day our friend Tommy Vext of Bad Wolves ran out on stage and sung until Ivan arrived… but you can imagine Ivan’s shock – the band was on stage without him – so things escalated form there – as his anger got the better of him and in the chaos – more and more crazy shit happened – mistakes such us wrong intros resulted in skipping songs – which resulted in getting handed the wrong instruments for the wrong songs…. the aftermath was even crazier – so the events that happened in the following day left us no choice but to send Ivan back to rehab so he can take care of himself and come back stronger.

“The show must go on – we owe this to the fans – so Tommy will be singing with us for the rest of the tour. We had a great first show – thank you for the continuous love and support (fans in Tilburg – we will be back – we will make up for the train wreck you unfortunately had to witness).”

Tommy Vext also stated: “It is a tremendous honor to share the stage with Five Finger Death Punch on these remaining dates. Today I am blessed with over eight years of sobriety, so I can certainly empathize with Ivan’s struggles. Not only do I feel a responsibility to deliver for the fans of Five Finger Death Punch on these remaining dates, but also to deliver for Ivan so he can get back to work as soon as he is healthy.”
