Futurepunk band The Plague Release “Danger” Music Video

Rochester-based “Futurepunk” band The Plague has released their debut music video for the single “Danger”. Released last month, the post-apocalyptic track comes from the group’s upcoming EP Hope For the F.U.T.U.R.E and has already racked up over 78K plays on Spotify. In an effort to continue their DIY approach (the band releases all their music on their own label Recover Records), the trio enlisted their longtime friend Scott Hamilton to shoot the video.

Frontman David Adam Monroe says “We got something gritty that we are pumped about and hopefully our fans enjoy seeing us play for the first time!

Monroe wrote and produced the entire song himself, which should come as no surprise as he has produced records alongside Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and Earl Cohen (Lady Gaga, Pink, Jessica Simpson). Before getting into the production side, Monroe was in the band Third Estate, who appeared on Warped Tour from 02-06 and toured with many established acts like Story Of The Year, Yellowcard, and MCR.

Hope For The F.U.T.U.R.E will be released in the fall of 2017 on Recover Records.

Catch the band at the Buffalo, NY stop of the Vans Warped Tour on July 13th.

The new lyric video talk about the purpose of the band’s message and the severity of domestic abuse, which is a reoccurring theme in the group’s newly announced, debut EP, Deathwish, which is set to release August 1st.

“Each of our music videos/songs have a message pertaining to an issue in society, (drug abuse, domestic abuse, etc), and our vision is to be more than just musicians, we want to be activists. The four of us want to help shift focus onto more important issues and prevent further damage to those who are lost or unheard,” says, vocalist, Nick Broglio.

In early 2017, the quartet went into the studio with Armellino (This Or The ApocalypseCurrents), who produced and engineered, what is now Deathwish. Mixed and mastered by Taylor Lawson (PeripheryDarkest Hour), the group shows promise with more to come after the release of this three track EP. Pre-orders are available at Counterfeit Culture‘s web-store.

“This EP has been a very emotional release for us. The feelings that went into each song have come from experiences in our lives and in the lives of people around us. Our goal is to portray those difficulties that we and others face in an attempt to shed light on real-life issues in society,” Broglio comments.

One Last Shot Premiere Music Video Ahead of Warped Tour Run

Horror-infused punk/screamo band One Last Shot from Syracuse, NY has released a new music video for their single “Grim Reminder”. The track premiered on the Vans Warped Tour website in anticipation for the group’s appearance on the festival this year. In the video, the band conceptualizes the idea that people are often afraid to express themselves the way they want to in life, due to the fear of judgement and ridicule.

The smiling masks & matching shirts represent how people wear fake smiles on their face and dress the same to fit in,” says vocalist Jeremy Romance. “Even though they may want to express themselves differently, deep down inside, they’re afraid of doing so. At the end of the video they force the masks on us, symbolizing that some people would rather us be like everyone else, instead of expressing ourselves the way we actually feel.”

The video was shot by B-horror director Ron Bonk (She KillsNight of the Strange) and the comes from One Last Shot’s latest concept album The Death of a Poet & All of His Friends. The “Poet” character is loosely based off Romance’s own struggles with life and death. At age 17, he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that has no cure and requires daily medication in order for him to stay alive.

The Death of a Poet & All of His Friends is available now on iTunes and Spotify.

Upcoming Warped Tour Dates: 
7/7 – Camden, NJ 
7/8 – Wantagh, NY 
7/8 – Hartford, CT 
7/10 – Scranton, PA

Audible Joes Release Music Video for New Single “Speaker Submission”

Audible Joes, a punk band from Cork, Ireland, do not sound like your typical Irish punk band. Swapping out bagpipes for gritty guitars and heavily melodic hooks, the Emerald Isle quartet has released a music video for their new single “Speaker Submission”. The track is taken from their upcoming sophomore full-length Irrational Anthems, an album full of blistering and abrasive tracks that will be released on July 14th.

The song was written after a particularly scary case of sleep paralysis,” says frontman Michael Stone. “The episode involved being strapped into a chair with a loud set of speakers pumping an endless wave of white noise at me. After regaining control from the episode I realized that I can’t take what I do for granted. The white noise was deafening and it threatened everything that I love in life and work towards. Sound is all I have. The song itself is inspired by taking solace and comfort in the music that drives and you and keeps you moving forward.

Audible Joes formed in 2010 and released their debut album Medicine For Modern Living in 2015. Irrational Anthems will be available on all digital retailers on July 14th.

Outer Glow (ex-I See Stars) Announce Debut EP “Lunar // Effect”

North Carolina metal outfit Outer Glow has announced their debut EP titled, Lunar // Effect, set to release June 30th. Formed in July of 2016 by Zach Johnson, the former I See Stars vocalist, the band has continuing to build their fanbase by releasing three singles, which are featured on their upcoming EP. After leaving I See Stars, Johnson commented, saying,

“I See Stars was a huge part of my life that I’ll never forget or regret. It truly was a dream come true to travel the world and play the tunes we wrote together. The end of my career with I See Stars at first was pretty rocky and it was hard for me not to be bitter, until I seen them play a show without me and saw how happy they were and I knew it was for the best. Outer Glow has been so amazing. It’s the first time I’ve ever had the freedom to express myself lyrically and emotionally and that’s something I’ve been waiting for my whole life. Every member of I See Stars is a composer as well, so sometimes writing songs got very emotional to people’s attachments to their art, with Outer Glow it just seems to click. Everybody is pretty good at letting go of ideas if it doesn’t pass the democracy of the band. Especially the song “Monsters” I wrote lyrically about struggles with growing up in a broken home and having negative traits of your parents or family. I personally didn’t grow up in a broken home but a lot of my best friends did and I’ve been around it and have seen how much of an influence it can have on people. I’m super excited for everybody to hear what the other guys and I from Outer Glow have put together for our EP, Lunar // Effect. We all put so much time and effort in composing this Ep and I’m beyond thrilled with how it turned out. To wrap things up I’d just like to thank everybody who has ever supported my music career including my friends and family and I See Stars. I love you all and wouldn’t be able to do what I do without you guys.”

Outer Glow are set to perform their CD release show on June 30th at The Blind Tiger in Greensboro, NC. Watch Outer Glow‘s latest single “Monsters” off the upcoming EP below.
