Spiritbox (Iwrestledabearonce) Premiere New Single & Music Video “Belcarra”

Spiritbox premiere a new official music video for their new track “Belcarra“ streaming below.

Vocalist Courtney LaPlante (also Iwrestledabearonce) says of this latest single:

“Lyrically this song mirrors the instrumental: it is anxious, angry and full of spite. It is a ode to all the things I don’t like about myself and how claustrophobic that makes me feel.

The singing break is also a highlight for me because though I feel most comfortable in layers and harmonies, in this song the singing is on track, done in one or two takes.

I purposely recorded this singing part after I was done all the screaming for all tracks, and you can really hear the exhaustion is my voice.”

Blaze Bayley Announces Iron Maiden Anniversary Shows

Blaze Bayley, singer with Iron Maiden from 1994 to 1999, announces that he will be playing a special Iron Maiden setlist at selected festival appearances in 2019. Choosing songs from his era with the band, these shows will celebrate 25 years since Blaze joined Iron Maiden. This will be the first and last opportunity to see such a setlist.

Blaze, who releases a new album and DVD, Live In France, on March 1st, and has just returned from a successful stint touring Latin America, sees this as the perfect opportunity to celebrate his time in Maiden which was such a positive experience and influence on his career as a whole.

Blaze has this to say, “25 years ago my great adventure with Iron Maiden began. It was a wonderful five years in my career and something I’m very proud of. Since then I have toured almost every year, and made 11 studio albums and three live albums. Recently, many fans have asked me to perform songs from the two albums I recorded with Iron Maiden, so this year to celebrate that magical time, I’m doing a full set of my favourite songs from the X-Factor and Virtual XI albums at festivals. My voice has developed and changed since my time as lead vocalist with Iron Maiden. Now I feel I’m singing better than ever, so I’m very excited about singing those old songs with the voice I have now.”

These festivals will feature a special Iron Maiden setlist from Blaze Bayley:

June 6 – Sweden Rock – Sweden
June 14 – Rock The Coast – Spain
July 27 – Headbangers Open Air – Germany
August 9 – Mannried Open Air – Switzerland
August 10 – Dark River Festival – Finland

The band at these shows will be Blaze’s regular touring and recording outfit taken from British band Absolva, plus Iced Earth bassist / Absolva guitarist Luke Appleton. The lineup is as follows:

Chris Appleton – guitar and backing vocals
Luke Appleton – guitar and backing vocals
Martin Mcnee – drums
Karl Schramm – bass and backing vocals

Chris Appleton adds, “Normally when we perform as Blaze’s band we are a four-piece including Blaze, so just myself on lead guitar and that really works for us. But for these Maiden sets, we think it’s really cool to bring in my brother Luke as second guitarist to enhance the Maiden feel. It’s an honour for us to play these songs with Blaze, increasingly recognised as an important chapter in Maiden’s history.”

Otep Fall U.S. Headlining Tour Announced

Otep announce the dates for their fall ‘The Art Of Dissent Tour‘, which will find them headlining with support from The World Over. One Day Waiting will also join the trek on select dates. Otep will be touring in support of their latest release, “Kult 45“.

Says frontwoman Otep Shamaya of this upcoming tour:

“In a time when apathy has been weaponized to suffocate the voice of the people, in a time when Americans are told not to believe what we see with our own eyes but to believe what one bloviating sack of sewage and a gutless Republican Party who care only about preying on the working class and the working poor just to feed his KULT from the same gruesome trough of racist, homophobic and sexist slop. We are proud to bring THE ART OF DISSENT tour to the people to hopefully remind them just how powerful we are and how important we are, as a nation, as a democracy, and that it’s damn well worth fighting for.”

Gama Bomb Posts New Lyric Video, “666teen” Online

Irish thrashers Gama Bomb have released a face-melting animated lyric video for new single “666teen.” The blistering track is the first single from the band’s sixth album Speed Between The Lines, out October 12th on AFM Records.

The album’s retro cover art is by New York-based artist Jarred Hageman AKA Chrome And Lightning and Rory McGuigan (Villagers), and the video also features scenes from 1950s public information movies.

The album was produced by longtime Gama Bomb collaborator Scott Atkins (Cradle of Filth, Sylosis).
“The title just popped into my head one night,” explains singer Philly Byrne. “I’d been listening to a lot of 50s rock and doo-wop, songs like Sixteen Candles and Sweet Little Sixteen, and it just kinda morphed into this idea: what if somebody wrote a Satanic teen rebellion song?”
Bassist Joe McGuigan on Speed Between The Lines: “Our aim with this record was keep refining the GAMA BOMB thrash formula. It’s got faster and more punky riffing, battling axes and catchy, memorable choruses from Philly, who’s back with the Halford / Belladona notes after injuring his voice a few years back.”

The digital single’s cover is inspired by vintage paperback novels, featuring art from James Blish’s horror classic Black Easter.

“Speed Between The Lines,” released by AFM Records on October 12th 2018, is the sixth studio album from the band in 16 years. The album will be available as CD, clear yellow gatefold Vinyl (ltd. to 250 units), turquoise gatefold Vinyl (ltd. to 250 units), clear/red gatefold and vinyl red/black splatter (ltd. to 100 units) which is exclusively available in the AFM webshop.
