The New Age Introduce Latest Single “To Be Alive”

Crafting a sound that inspires introspection, vigor, and hope with a shot of adrenaline is the goal of Columbus, OH natives The New Age. The heavy rock/alternative quartet will be releasing their debut full-length album Placebo on February 23rd and have released the single “To Be Alive”.

This whole album centers around the pain caused by addiction and interfamilial struggles, contrasted by hope and an outlook for a better life found through love, tribulation, and your friends and family themselves,” says vocalist Justin Cotton. “This song follows that pattern, being that it shows a yearning for a better life without said burdens.

“To Be Alive” is preceded by the singles “Temper” and the album’s title track, the latter of which has already accumulated nearly 450K plays between YouTube and Spotify. Often explosive and always melodic, Placebo takes one’s emotions on a journey of hardships and adversity.

Brazilian Ska-Punk Band Abraskadabra Debut New Music Video

Brazilian ska-punk band Abraskadabra is gearing up to release their new album Welcome next month, but today you can see the music video for their latest single “The Dream.” The video is a wild ride inside the head of their vocalist Du, depicting a collection of different dreams he has had (which makes you wonder what the hell he’s eating before bed).

Video director Guilherme Lepca says “The process of making the videoclip was inspired by the 80’s punk movement aesthetics (specially Dead Kennedy’s gig posters) and also by 30’s horror movies. Our objective recording the clip was to catch the process of making a new album in a rented house and also the vibe of the band. By mixing noisy pictures, non sense collages and parallaxes we wanted to give the clip a dreamy and dynamic narrative/look.

The new album Welcome delivers Abraskadabra’s own vision of the ska punk essence. Written as a whole band, they searched for a raw punchy sound while exploring the full capacity of melody. Instead of recording in a traditional studio environment, the seven-piece ensemble crammed themselves into an old house and captured everyone’s feelings and motivations in the moment.

Arising in mid-2003, the band has toured all around Brazil and the US, sharing the stage with legends like Bad Religion, Rise Against, Goldfinger, Less Than Jake, and many more. In 2014, the band’s cover of No Use For Name’s “Not Your Savior” was featured in the Fat Wreck Chords doc A Fat Wreck.

It isn’t just the 15-years on the road that settle the power and unity of Abraskadabra, but also the energy and passion they put into the music they create. Being friends first and putting together one of the most interesting punk bands in Brazil.

Tonight We Stand Release “I Will Rise, You’ll Fade Away” Music Video

Italian metalcore outfit Tonight We Stand has released a new single accompanied with a music video titled, “I Will Rise, You’ll Fade Away“. The single follows up on the band’s debut EP, Redemption, which was released at the beginning of 2017.

Our new single, “I Will Rise, You’ll Fade Away”, which talks about the abandon of the children by their parents from the view point of the children, is a major improvement from our debut EP ‘Redemption’,drummer Alex Murello commented. The song itself has a more defined and original sound, opening the gates for what to expect from our upcoming debut album. It perfectly blends and describes the style of Tonight We Stand.

Blending melody driven guitar attacks and sing-a-long epic melodies with old school metalcore power, Tonight We Stand looks to make a worldly impact in 2018.

Unlocking The Truth Release New Music Video for “My Chains”

By now, the story of teenage metal trio Unlocking The Truth (who walked away from a seven-figure deal with Sony) is well known. After years of media excitement, late-night TV appearances, and breakout sets at Coachella and Bonnaroo, the band’s debut album Chaos was finally released independently last year. The Brooklyn-based band is now back with a new music video for their latest single “My Chains”. The video (directed by JP Brasca) cuts through much of the hype surrounding the group and shows a different side of the band.

We wanted the video to show that Unlocking The Truth has more to offer than just a good song,” says guitarist/vocalist Malcolm Brickhouse. “The video and song both push the envelope for ‘the norm’ in metal music. It’s fresh. It’s new. It’s MY CHAINS!

The track is a soulful metal hybrid, co-produced by Brickhouse (and Kenta Yonesaka, Germano Studio NY), who says “The meaning of ‘My Chains’ will be different for everyone, but there’s a line in the song for everyone. Think about it. We all have chains in life. It could be somebody or something we use as a crutch to help us get through life and loosen those chains.

“My Chains” is available on Spotify and iTunes.

Sibling Industrial/Punk Rock Trio Remnants of Hope Release New Music Video

Atlanta-based industrial/punk rock trio Remnants of Hope has released a music video for their new single “Bloody Murder” from the upcoming EP Grim Tides. The aggressive track straddles the line of real life atrocities and a mirroring, fictional post-apocalyptic setting where the band attempts to be fighters for the greater good.

We’re sick, sick of how terrible everyone is to each other,” says guitarist Nykii Nightmare. “This song is our response.

Remnants of Hope consists of three young brothers who began releasing music in 2014 with their debut single “Symphony of Sorrow.” The home-schooled teens were raised in a musical household, even performing in a cover band with their father before branching off to create their own sound. Since then, the siblings have been steadily releasing music and sharing the stage with acts like Farewell My LoveFamous Last WordsEyes Set to KillWednesday 13, and many others.

“Bloody Murder” will be available on the Grim Tides EP, set to release in late January.
