Bay Area Nu-Metal Group Sharp Tongue Drop Music Video For “DEILD”

The Bay Area band Sharp Tongue, who dub themselves as “Nu-Metalcore” have unveiled a new music video for their single “DEILD”. The song comes off the group’s four track EP, Petrichor which dropped September 22nd.

This song is about experiencing a DEILD (dream exit induced lucid dream). Exiting a dream when momentarily awaking, only to immediately re-enter that dream upon falling back asleep, in this case, a never ending nightmare, says vocalist, Allen Loesch. We tried capture the feeling of terror from this experience through this song and our new video.

Sharp Tongue has Petrichor available on iTunes and on their Bandcamppage, which is set up for a “name your price”. Watch the music video for “DEILD” below.

About Sharp Tongue:

The Bay Area has raised some of the finest acts in the metalcore genre, and continuing that tradition is none other than Santa Rosa’s Sharp Tongue. Originally founded in 2008 by a group of high school friends experimenting with varying degrees of pop-punk, hard rock, and metalcore, Sharp Tongue have grown to become what’s classified as “nu-metalcore”, a genre that combines metal of yesteryear with the features of the genre that the world knows today.

After spending numerous years experimenting with various types of music, the band turned to the music that originally influenced them and gave them their initial spark to pick up an instrument: throwbacks of the early 2000s. These musical influences are heard heavily throughout their four track debut EP Petrichor, set to be released in September 2017.

“We basically meshed all these inspirations from the bands that got us into music which created our own sound,” the band states. “It’s real, it’s organic, and we’re having the most fun we’ve had with music in a long time.” With even more new music in the works beyond Petrichor, the future is bright for Sharp Tongue.

Pop Punk Band Bleacher Days announce December Tour with Riviera

The high-energy Boston pop punk band Bleacher Days will be setting out on tour this December with Riviera (who recently performed at the Warped Rewind at Sea event). The punk package will start in Stroudsburgh, PA and end in Attleboro, MA on 12/16 (full list of dates below).

Bleacher Days will playing songs off their upcoming EP I only Saw True Purpose, produced by Chris Piquette (Trophy WivesLions Lions). The angst-charged, introspective songs on the new EP are poppy, but still pack enough punch to keep the mosh pits moving. Vocalist Wren Mohammed says the new record “is the product of frustration resulting from our lives and our relationships. The songs are a blunt chronicle of the back end of a 7 year relationship I was in and start to finish, each song is just frustration.

In its first year of hard work, Bleacher Days has made an immediate impact on New England shows, rallying bands together and promoting in person on their way to selling out a 250 cap room with their most recent headliner. A feeling of camaraderie consumes the room when the band takes the stage and the relationships within the band run deeper than the band’s one year age would suggest. Longtime friends, past musical projects, and once abandoned ideas is what brought Bleacher Days together.

Coat Check Girl Release New Single and Music Video “Audience of None”

Upon hearing the name Coat Check Girl, you may think of Jayma Mays‘ character on that particular episode of How I Met Your Mother, but starting today you may also think of infectious, alt-rock music with a ska tinge. The Los Angeles band has released a music video for their new single “Audience of None,” produced by Latin Grammy Award winning producer Rodolfo “Rudy” Pagliuca. Although the polished track has an upbeat vibe, vocalist Andre Rodriguez says the lyrics are a bit of a contrast.

This is the most personal song I have ever written,” says Rodriguez. “It was written about suicide and depression. The title ‘Audience of None’ refers to the fact that sometimes, for some people, no one’s there listening even when they’re screaming for help.

A dreamy synth arrangement (provided by Chapis Lasca) gives the bouncy track a bit of grounding, while Rodriguez hammers away at the hook with an almost Rob Thomas flair. “Audience of None” is available now on iTunes and Spotify.

Upcoming shows: 
October 25th – Silverlake Lounge – Los Angeles, CA 
October 28th – Slide Bar – Fullerton, CA

Foreign Sons Release Music Video for “Wonder”

The hopeful outlook of life is that everyday we are presented with new and exciting opportunities; however, many days can instead be filled with frustration and obstacles. These days, it’s helpful to find peace in spite of surrounding circumstances and Las Vegas indie/alt band Foreign Sons attempt to do just that in their new single “Wonder”.

Vocalist Chris Bundra says “‘Wonder’ tackles learning to live in peace despite circumstances in life. We specifically filmed it in our practice space to capture our daily routine. We wanted a raw straightforward approach.

“Wonder” was directed by Drew Lichty and is the latest single from Foreign Sons’ debut full-length Transference, released in September. The ten tracks hit a sweet spot for fans of melodic indie rock like Thrice and Brand New, and features a cameo from The Color Morale‘s Garret Rapp on the song “Worst Enemy.”

Foreign Sons, comprised by three brothers and one close friend, formed in 2012 with a desire to create raw and unfiltered rock music. After the release of their debut EP Of Want & Wisdom, the band spent some time on the road with EmeryAs Cities Burn, and Listener. Now with two releases under their belt, the quartet is planning a west coast tour.

Transference is available now on iTunes.
