Northlane Premieres New Song & Music Video “Citizen” From Upcoming New Album

Northlane premieres a new song and music video entitled “Citizen”. A new album from the band is tentatively scheduled for a May/June release date with more details to come.

Check out now “Citizen” below.

Says guitarist Josh Smith of the song:

“‘Citizen’ is a song that was written about the First World police state and our willingness to live under the watch of those in power, for their means, while those who blow the lid on it suffer. Writing this one was quite a mission, we went through five completely different sets of lyrics and the final incarnation of the song was the eighth revision. It took a lot of work but we are proud of it and beyond excited to share it with you all.”

Earthside Releasing “A Dream In Static,” Posts Epic “Mob Mentality” Video

New Haven-based progressive ensemble Earthside will release debut album, “A Dream in Static,” on October 23.

Earthside has also now revealed the music video for “Mob Mentality,” featuring guest vocals from Sevendust frontman Lajon Witherspoon and a full orchestral arrangement composed by guitarist Jamie van Dyck and performed by the Moscow Studio Symphony Orchestra (MSSO). Check out the new music video, directed by Patrick Kendall, in the player below.

“Making this video was a fulfilling process because as such a transdisciplinary project, it crossed our paths with talented individuals across the arts,” van Dyck explained. “We worked with dancers, choreographers, directors, editors, colorists, professional orchestral musicians, a conductor, an orchestra contractor, a wardrobe/costume person, and of course a rock star vocalist. Involving all these people in our art reaffirmed the value of what we’re doing and sets the stage for the collaborative spirit we hope to continue to embody as we reach across the arts into the worlds of film, dance, video games, and other visual arts.”

An epic undertaking of cross-continental collaborations, “A Dream in Static” was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden under the watch of producer and mix engineer, David Castillo (Opeth, Katatonia, Bloodbath), and additional mix and mastering engineer, Jens Bogren (Opeth, Soilwork, The Ocean, Devin Townsend).

The instrumental collective recruited several acclaimed guest vocalists, including Lajon Witherspoon (Sevendust), Daniel Tompkins (TesseracT, ex-Skyharbor), Björn Strid (Soilwork) and Eric Zirlinger (Face the King, ex-Seer), to provide their prowess across four of the eight cinematic tracks, as well as the Moscow Studio Symphony Orchestra (MSSO) for live orchestral compositions.

“Earthside is excited and very proud to finally be releasing our debut album ‘A Dream in Static,'” commented keyboardist Frank Sacramone. “This record has been incubating for several years now between initial writing and demoing all the way through nailing down a release date. Along the way we’ve worked with so many different artists across disciplines and across continents. Now the fruits of our global project finally get to see the light of day and hopefully move listeners in a similarly meaningful way as the music moved us and our collaborators. We can’t wait for you all to hear these songs and to get out on the road and perform them for you guys.”

Cripple Bastards Posts New Song “Nemico A Terra”

In less than three weeks, Italian hardcore terrorists Cripple Bastards will disburse the harsh new LP, “Nero In Metastasi,” upon the masses via Relapse.

Now you can hear the new song “Nemico A Terra” in the player below, courtesy of Decibel Magazine. The following press release was also issued about the album:

“The band’s first full-length release for the label, the eighteen tracks on ‘Nero In Metastasi’ arguably bear the most ‘metal’ production in Cripple Bastards’ massive discography to date — an attribute acquired during its construction under the watch of producer Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden (Arch Enemy, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity) — without impacting their rabid, unabashed political hardcore energy. A prime example of this is the album’s twelfth track, ‘Nemico A Terra,’ which CB vocalist Giulio The Bastard translates to, ‘Enemy Down.'”
