Gozu reveals details for new album, ‘Equilibrium’

– February 22nd, 2018 –

Launches video for first single, “Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat”, online

On April 13th, Boston’s rock/metal outfit Gozu will release their new album, Equilibrium, via Blacklight Media Records. For a first preview of Equilibrium, the video for the new single “Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat” (directed by Tony Simone at Zenbeast Audio / facebook.com/ZenBeastAudio) can be viewed now at: blacklightmediarecords.com/gozu – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–CD
–180g black vinyl + download card
–sky-blue marbled vinyl + download card (limited to 300 copies – USA exclusive)
–magenta marbled vinyl + download card (limited to 200 copies – USA exclusive)
–transparent petrol blue vinyl + download card (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–olive/black marbled vinyl + download card (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

With roots in 60s psychedelia and classic rock, the fuzzy stoner riffs of the 70s, the grit of 90s grunge and the winning dirty rock n’ roll that has in recent years made a resurgence, Gozu has been churning out killer records since 2009. With 2016′s Revival they took their sound in a somewhat new and more aggressive direction, and in doing so, dropped the most compulsive, exciting and downright badass release of their career – and Equilibrium has only raised the stakes. “We wanted these songs to hit a nerve, make people shake their ass and enjoy simply being alive,” says vocalist/guitarist Marc “Gaff” Gaffney, who founded the band with lead guitarist Doug Sherman. Much of the record’s strength stems from the unit growing since Revival, the first full-length featuring drummer Mike Hubbard and bassist Joseph Grotto. Having also reunited with Revival producer Dean Baltulonis (Hatebreed/Goes Cube/The Hold Steady) at Wild Arctic Studio in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, the record is certainly the catchiest and most instant music dropped by the quartet, embracing their love of pop music but without compromising on any of the other vital elements of their sound.

Equilibrium track-listing:
1. Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat
2. The People vs. Mr. T
3. King Cobra
4. Manimal
5. They Probably Know Karate
6. Prison Elbows
7. Stacy Keach
8. Ballad of ODB

Gozu live:
Mar. 8 – Gramercy Theatre – New York, NY (Blacklight Media showcase with Candiria, Good Tiger, Mother Feather, Oni, Eyes Of The Sun)

Gozu line-up:
Marc Gaffney – guitar and vocals
Joe Grotto – bass
Mike Hubbard – drums
Doug Sherman – lead guitar and sounds

Twitching Tongues launches new single, “Kill for You”

– February 12th, 2018 –

On March 9th, Twitching Tongues will release their new album, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, via Metal Blade Records. For a preview of Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, the new single “Kill For You” can be heard at: youtube.com/watch?v=5VEB4lweC0M

For another preview of the album, the video for the first single “Harakiri” (directed by David Brodsky / davidsbrodsky.com) can be viewed now at: metalblade.com/twitchingtongues – where the record is also available for pre-order in the following formats:


–CD
–Ultra clear vinyl + download card (limited to 500 copies – USA exclusive)
–Metallic gold/black split vinyl + download card (limited to 250 copies – USA exclusive)
–Metallica gold w/ black smoke vinyl + download card (limited to 250 copies – USA exclusive)
–Ultra clear w/ black smoke and metallic gold splatter vinyl + download card (limited to 500 copies via Closed Casket)
–Black w/ bronze splatter vinyl + download card (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–Beer inside grey split vinyl + download card (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

The title for Twitching Tongues‘ fourth full-length, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, was drawn from a quote by famed social philosopher Eric Hoffer – “Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life” – and it reflects the band’s mentality in approaching the record: paying homage to those who supported them while belligerently responding to their detractors. With “failure” as a core theme driving Colin Young’s lyrics, it also features his first foray into the political arena, motivated by the contemporary political climate to speak his mind. Directly inspired by film scores, the record has a strong epic feel, the band realizing their vision of having the music flow like a story being told. With interconnected parts, musical references and callbacks in each song, everything is tied together in a manner unlike any of their previous releases. At the same time, while maintaining the same levels of hardness and aggression that has characterized their later work, it features much more immediate and memorable melodies, which evoke the sound of In Love There Is No Law yet at the same time feel fresh and new.

Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred track-listing:
1. AWOL (State of the Union)
2. Harakiri
3. Kill for You
4. T.F.R.
5. Forgive & Remember

Harm’s Way launches video for new single, “Become a Machine”, via RevolverMag.com

– February 7th, 2018 –

This Friday (February 9th), Harm’s Way will release their fourth full-length, Posthuman, via Metal Blade Records. In anticipation of this release, the band has launched a video for the new single, “Become A Machine”, by director Max Moore (maxmoorefilms.com; Code Orange, Converge, etc.) via RevolverMag.com: revolvermag.com

For another preview of Posthuman, the previous singles (“Human Carrying Capacity” and “Call My Name”) can be streamed at: metalblade.com/harmsway – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–CD
–Highlighter red/orange vinyl + download card (limited to 200 copies – USA exclusive)
–White vinyl + download card (limited to 1000 copies – USA exclusive)
–Translucent clear w/ white, blue and purple marble vinyl + download card (limited to 400 copies – USA exclusive)
–Marble green vinyl + download card (limited to 300 copies via Closed Casket)
–Translucent purple/black split vinyl + download card (limited to 300 copies via Death Wish)
–White / black marble vinyl + download card (limited to 500 copies – EU exclusive)
–Transparent violet vinyl + download card (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–Clear “birthday cake” splattered vinyl + download card (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–Milky-clear/blue-green-red splattered vinyl + download card (limited to 100 copies – EU exclusive)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Having grown with each subsequent release, Posthuman is a devastating addition to Harm’s Way‘s catalog. “We’ve always stayed true to who we are and allowed the songwriting process to take shape organically from record to record, and as the band has progressed, our sound has become more refined with metal and industrial influences,” states drummer Chris Mills, while guitarist Bo Lueders succinctly sums up what people can expect when they first spin the record: “To a Harm’s Way fan, I would describe ‘Posthuman‘ as a blend of ‘Isolation‘(2011) and ‘Rust‘ (2015), but it’s sonically way more insane. To anyone else, I would simply say it’s full on heavy and full on aggression.”

Posthuman track-listing
1. Human Carrying Capacity
2. Last Man
3. Sink
4. Temptation
5. Become a Machine
6. Call My Name
7. Unreality
8. Dissect Me
