News: SHADOW OF DOUBT Premieres "Fade" Through No Echo; No Mercy Debut EP Nears June Release Through WAR Records


As WAR Records prepares to issue the No Mercy debut EP from Texas hardcore outfit SHADOW OF DOUBT - founded by former core members of Bitter End, Hardside, and more - No Echo has exclusively premiered the record's "Fade" alongside a brief interrogation with the band.
 
With the new SHADOW OF DOUBT track, No Echo offers in part, "featuring former members of Bitter End and Hardside, one would expect heavy-hitting hardcore, and I'm pleased to report that the band doesn't let anyone down in that regard. The quintet call San Antonio home, but listening to No Mercy, you wouldn't be out of line to think they were born and bred in NYC. The songs of the forthcoming EP have the metallic bite of late '80s thrash and the groove and attitude of NYHC, with a definite Merauder vibe to the whole thing."
 
Unleash the brutal grooves of SHADOW OF DOUBT's "Fade" at No EchoRIGHT HERE.
 
The previously-issued title track is also playing at New Noise Magazine HERE.
 
WAR Records will release No Mercy on June 2nd as a four-song cassette, a ten-song CD which includes the band's 2014 demo and the track "Deceive" which features Jose Gonzales from Mizery, and all digital platforms. The iTunes preorder is $5.99 until release date, and comes with an immediate download of "Deceive."
 
Find digital preorders at iTunes HERE and Bandcamp HERE, and physical preorders at the label HERE.
 
SHADOW OF DOUBT is a blue-collar powerhouse that is a major part of the new breed of Texas hardcore. Featuring former members of Bitter End, Hardside, and more, the band combines their love for crossover, hardcore, punk, and metal, with powerful and memorable riffs reminiscent of the classic NYHC sound, resulting in the perfect soundtrack for this modern age of quarrel. No Mercy combines crushing riffs in the vein of Cro-Mags and Leeway while maintaining a modern sound reminiscent of Mizery, Take Offense, and Beautiful Ones. The four-song EP was recorded in November 2016 by Phillip Odom (Ivy League) at Bad Wolf Studios, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Power Trip, Nails).

News: UFOMAMMUT Debuts "Warsheep" Via New Video; Song To Appear On 7" Single And Upcoming Album 8 Due Through Neurot Recordings In September; Tour Dates Announced


The Italian alchemic juggernaut, UFOMAMMUT, masters of melding uncompromisingly heavy magic with psychedelic swirls, recently announced news of a new studio recording, 8, which shall arrive on 22nd September via Neurot Recordings.
 
Prior to the release of the 8 LP, UFOMAMMUT delivers an early extract from the record in the form of a video for the song "Warsheep" which you can view below. The band describe their intentions of the video, "It is inspired by the lyrics of the song which in itself is a play on the word 'worship.' The protagonist takes a symbolic journey from the natural human condition to the trappings of the dogmas of society, religion etc. The principle idea being that thought is blind and is caged into the illusion of being free." Adding to the video's eerie atmosphere, the setting is in an abandoned villa in Italy, and the surrounding woodland.
 
In the spirit of record collecting rituals, and to offer something special to fans ahead of the full album release, UFOMAMMUT is offering "Warsheep" as a limited edition 7". Available in a small run of 500 pieces, and with the cover handprinted with gold iridescent and red inks on pearlescent paper by Malleus, the record shall be released via Supernatural Cat on 15th June, and is available for preorder via the label's website, and via Neurot stores too.
 
Watch UFOMAMMUT's "Warsheep" video RIGHT HERE.
 
Preorders for the Warsheep 7" are now available HERE.

8 is due for release on September 22nd on vinyl and CD formats via Neurot Recordings and on a limited and regular edition vinyl via Supernatural Cat. Preorder information and more will be revealed over the upcoming months.
 
UFOMAMMUT has also announced a long list of upcoming European live shows as well, including several major festival performances and an Autumn European tour with Usnea. Additional live shows will be announced in the weeks ahead.

Sonically and symbolically, 8 is not only wickedly limitless in its heaviness, power, and commanding nature, but how it arrests the listener's mind creating a wholly unbounded and impenetrable sensory experience. Laden with symbolic nuances, 8 most obviously gestures towards this being UFOMAMMUT's eighth offering, comprised of eight stunningly immersive tracks that flow into each other without interruption. This flow can also be seen when you tip 8 horizontally, thus it morphs into the leniscate from algebraic geometry [∞], a plane curve that meets at central point, more commonly known as the infinity symbol. A continuous stream of movement reflective of the uninterrupted nature of the album but also the continued togetherness of the essential elements of the band - Urlo, Poia and Vita - since the beginning of the band's history. ∞ tipped vertically sees us return to the number 8. It must be stressed there is no singular pronunciation of the title, 8 is to be spoken in every language; "eight" in English, "otto" in Italian, "acht" in German, and so on.
 
8 is a continuous flux of music, a singular entity, which can be defined in micro measurements by its eight satellite songs. Each track expands upon the preceding song, unfolding into an exceedingly dense, malevolent and formidable journey, resulting in this being UFOMAMMUT's most extreme outing yet, with zero breathing room in the forty-eight-minute venture. The album's predecessor Ecate has now been put to rest and we can be assured that 8 is an essential turning point in the infinity that is UFOMMAMUT's sonic signature.
 
Recorded at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, Milano, Italy, 8 is a major turning point in the heavy alchemic arts, with the elements of UFOMAMMUT's recording constellation being re-aligned. Although the musicians within the collective remain unturned, a change in recording approach saw the trio playing and recording live together in the same room, even utilizing their live sound engineer Ciccio and his project Femore for production purposes, with Fabrizio San Pietro on mixing duties. Overdubs were used only for vocals, synth sounds, and minor details, with the result of the endeavor being a stricter focus on the soul, darkened groove, and overall cohesion of the music and themselves as musicians. In turn, 8 clarified to UFOMAMMUT who they are as a unit now and their new sonic path...

News: NECK DEEP ANNOUNCES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM "THE PEACE AND THE PANIC"; RELEASES TWO NEW SONGS & MUSIC VIDEOS


Neck Deep has announced their highly anticipated third studio album, The Peace And The Panic, due out August 18th via Hopeless Records. The 11-track album, produced by Mike Green (Pierce The Veil, Paramore), is a meditation on the constant duality of life and the struggles that come with it. It comes blessed with an acknowledgement that seizing the day and having a laugh with your mates is important, but so is the personal growth that comes with pain and existential crisis. This album will show a duality of sounds, which carries through to the various PEACE and PANIC pre-order bundles, now available here.
 
Additionally, the band has released the first two singles and music videos from the album after their first spins last Sunday on the Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter. Fans can watch the videos for “Where Do We Go When We Go” and “Happy Judgement Day” at http://smarturl.it/WDWGVideo and http://smarturl.it/HJDVideo, respectively.

On the album, lead singer Ben Barlow says, “It’s not all ‘Let’s have a party and grab a beer’ this time, but I wouldn’t say it’s pessimistic, just realistic. Trying to make something of your life is a big theme on this record, as is dealing with depression and anxiety. We’ve all found ourselves in the last few years and grown up a bit. I’ve had to do a lot of soul-searching and maybe I’ve been hardened by life a little bit, but I feel ready to take on the world again, just in a different way.” For more information on Neck Deep and their upcoming album, please visit http://neckdeepuk.com/.

 
The Peace And The Panic - Track Listing:
1. Motion Sickness
2. Happy Judgement Day
3. In Bloom
4. 19 Seventy Sumthin'
5. Parachute
6. Don't Wait (ft. Sam Carter)
7. Heavy Lies
8. Critical Mistake
9. The Grand Delusion
10. Wish You Were Here
11. Where Do We Go When We Go

Their previous full-length, Life’s Not Out To Get You, debuted at #9 on Top Current Albums and hit #17 on the Billboard 200 charts, as well as #8 in the Official UK Top 10 chart. LNOTGY has sold over 60,000 units in the US and over 35,000 in the UK. The record was also listed as #3 on Rock Sound and #13 on Kerrang!’s ‘Top 50 albums of 2015’ charts. Additionally, the album has seen over 100 Million streams on Spotify and saw great play on Sirius XM Faction and additional radio stations.

For Wrexham pop-punks Neck Deep, the trajectory of the last half decade has been, seemingly, one of unbridled success. Comprehensively the most successful British band in the history of their genre, and with an average age of just 23, they have risen – at a pace so head-spinning it nearly snapped necks – to become the zeitgeist capturing band of their generation and scene. They’ve scored Kerrang! and Alternative Press awards along the way, completed two summer-long stints at Warped Tour to unprecedented crowds, worked alongside legends like Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and completed a 2016 headline world tour of their own which took in some 15 countries across 4 months and sold in excess of 52,000 tickets.

The truth, as anyone who has even a little experience will tell you, is that when life takes away it also gives – in self-confidence, in conviction and in a galvanized dedication to expressing what lies inside you in the very best way you can. Neck Deep are here to prove that, and a whole lot more besides.

Neck Deep is Ben Barlow (Vocals), Matt West (Guitar), Sam Bowden (Guitar), Fil Thorpe-Evans (Bass) and Dani Washington (Drums).

News: PERCEPTION RELEASE THE VIDEO TO 'MONOLITH'


Perception step up and release their explosive new single Monolith, out now.


Highly-rated tech-metalcorers, Perception, are rapidly picking up new fans and feeding the appetite of the music industry’s tastemakers. Already noted for their energetic and intense live performances, they’ve shared the stage throughout the UK with acts such as While She Sleeps, Continents, Create To Inspire, Feed The Rhino and Carcer City, to name a few.

Perception’s debut EP Collapse was produced by Dan Kerr at Avenue Studios (Shields / Create To Inspire / Our Hollow, Our Home) and landed last summer. The record placed the tech-metal combo on the map, and drew in a slew of underground support for the band.

Hot on the heels of Collapse, Perception headed back into Avenue Studios to craft their new single Monolith. Heavier, more atmospheric, expansive, and mature than Collapse, Monolith takes Perception’s sound to the next level. This new track is taken from the band’s forthcoming new EP and marks the rise of a band destined for greatness, watch it below:

News: 'Fireball - Fuelling The Fire' Tour 2017 Announces Reel Big Fish + Anti-Flag + Mad Caddies + Sweet Little Machine



Monday 22nd May 2017; Academy Events in association with Fireball are extremely pleased to announce the line-up for the second annual ‘Fireball – Fuelling The Fire’ Tour.
 
Hitting the road throughout October 2017, the run of dates will feature a star studded line-up of the best in punk and ska, headlined by Huntingdon Beach, California’s legendary ska punk outfit Reel Big Fish, with support from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania punks Anti-Flag and Solvang, California-based ska punks Mad Caddies.
 
Yet again, tickets are eye-wateringly cheap at just £10 each and go on general sale on Friday 26th May with O2 priority tickets on sale at 10am on Wednesday 24th May.
 
Following the huge success of the inaugural 2016 leg featuring Less Than Jake, The Skints, Mariachi El Bronx, KEMURI and The Bennies - which sold nearly 20,000 tickets with eight dates at O2 Academy venues across the UK - the tour is fast becoming a calendar favourite amongst the alternative crowd.
 
In addition to the announced line up, Fireball’s Hottest Band 2017 winners, Sheffield quartet Sweet Little Machine, will take the opening slot on the 2017 leg of the ‘Fireball - Fuelling The Fire’ Tour, following recent support slots on tours with Me First & The Gimme Gimmes and Patent Pending, promoted by Academy Events.
 
Commenting on the news, Fireball UK brand manager James Pattison says: “We’re delighted to be bringing the fire back after a hugely successful inaugural Fuelling The Fire Tour last year, and even more excited to bring you these awesome bands, all of which I’ve personally grown up listening to and loving. At Fireball UK we’re hugely committed to bringing great music experiences to the fans at prices that don’t cost the earth – and renewing the £10 ticket idea is central to that. These shows, much like last year, will be one big party!”

Recently celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2016, Reel Big Fish were one of the legions of Southern California ska-punk bands to edge into the mainstream following the mid-’90s success of No Doubt and Sublime. World renowned for their hyperkinetic stage shows, sense of humour, ironic covers, and metallic shards of ska, the group cultivated an underground following that broke into the mainstream in summer 1997. Still fronted by original lead singer and song writer Aaron Barrett, they continue releasing albums and touring relentlessly, playing over 250 shows a year to thousands of loyal fans all over the world, gaining more and more underground popularity as the ska scene continues to flourish.
 
Pennsylvania punks Anti-Flag are well known for their political activism, focusing on anti-war activism, anti-imperialism, class struggle, human rights, and various socio-political sentiments. Their advocacy of progressive political action groups such as Greenpeace, Amnesty International and the global Occupy Together movement has cemented them as one of punk rock’s most politically minded and forward thinking touring outfits over the space of their near 30 year career.
 
Since their inception, during high school in California nearly two decades ago, the Mad Caddies have sold over 400,000 albums and toured the world countless times, delighting fans with their unique blend of reggae, punk, ska and pop. While trends and times have changed, the Mad Caddies’ commitment to creating dynamic music has only grown stronger.
 
The ‘Fireball – Fuelling The Fire Tour’ is your only chance to see some of the finest live bands the punk scene has to offer on one stage this October – make sure you don’t miss out. #FuelledByFireball
 
Tickets go on general sale on Friday 26th May with O2 priority tickets on sale at 10am on Wednesday 24th May.

News: Fire From The Gods Release 'Narrative Retold' on Rise Records


Active rock/metal band Fire From The Gods has released Narrative Retold two days ago on Rise Records. The full-length album is a re-issue of their 2016 release Narrative and features two new tracks produced by Jonathan Davis of KORN. Listen to the full stream below on the Rise Records YouTube page.


"Folks are so heartless and calloused these days. We forget to feel shit because we are so obsessed with our own existence. Live for the common good of everyone. Do Not remain Voiceless.” - AJ Channer
The band will be promoting the new release all summer long on the Van's Warped Tour, as well as appearing at Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH this weekend.

News: Antichrist Mag Premiere Extreme Metal Duo DEITY "Beginning of Extinction"


The brainchild of Danny Alessandro (guitars/vocals) and John Massey (guitars/vocals), Toronto death metal duo DEITYhas been a long time coming. Inspired by Suffocation, Emperor, Death, Slayer and Immortal and describing their music as ‘relentless, powerful, intriguing, honest and revitalizing’, DEITY has produced a truly special debut self-titled album due out June 2, 2017.

“We formed about 15 years ago…Myself and John have always been the core of Deity. We had both been working on other projects till we felt the need to finally go in and finish this album about 3 years ago. We’ve known each other for about 20 years. We got tired of working on metal that wasn’t true to us. This is an album we’ve always wanted to hear!” comments Danny Alessandro.

The self-titled debut features eight brutal assaults that include session drums done by Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy) plus session bass by Flo Ravet (ex-Nephelium) along with the album being mixed and mastered by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist) and produced by Danny Alessandro and Joey Virgilio.

Teaming up with Antichrist Magazine, the duo premieres their second single "Beginning of Exctinction".

"Beginning of Extinction came about during a jam session between Danny and I. As I played a few riffs, Danny played off of those and that's how we ended up with the tune. The concept behind it was similar to what Dante and Virgil experienced through the Inferno. Our goal was for the individual to have that mindset as if they were witnessing the end of times. The lyrical themes were inspired by Hate Eternal/Morbid Angel while having that musical infusion of brutality, melody and complexity.comments John Massey.



and first single "Sacrificium" can be heard here

With the completion of DEITY's debut self-titled album, the extreme duo, Danny and John are looking forward to taking their sound to live stages in Toronto, Montreal and beyond. Watch this pair, because DEITY are a band that deserve to break out of the studio into the live arena!


News: Seasonal ‘Bloom’ On Newly Released EP: Surrey Pop-Rock Quartet’s Debut Out Now



Guildford Pop Rock Newcomers Seasonal have today released their debut: 5 track EP ‘Bloom’. With the title chosen to represent the new beginning for the quartet, vocalist/bassist Matt Truseler gives an insight into it’s content: “Lyrically we take a very honest approach. The songs on this EP are all about personal experiences from our lives and feelings. We wanted to avoid having songs with generic lyrics that although anyone could relate to, do not have a personal connection to us: a balance between, what is relatable for the listener, without losing the meaning of each track for us.” The EP has also been supported by the release of a video for lead single ‘Certainty’, which can be viewed here, with Truseler saying: “We decided that we wanted to keep it simple and with the same theme that has gone through everything from the album artwork into the band photos. Featuring Matt singing in the forest, cut with band performance, helped to keep the idea and imagery of isolation and loneliness.”
 
With a line-up completed by guitarists Max O'Neill and Alex Coombes and drummer Alex Tickner, Seasonal formed as a trio in 2016, later recruiting Coombes on the strength of their demos. With the line-up complete they pushed on with writing more material, but agreed that “something was not quite selling us”. Continuing to experiment, a simple change of tuning and the writing of debut track ‘Sevens’ made for a winning combo and from this process their moniker was plucked: “The name of the band really just came from the change in the attitude and way we approached the project, like a change in the seasons,” summaries Truseler.
 
Once happy with their repertoire, 9 months had passed and the band headed into the studio with the intention of recording just one track with Oz Craggs at Hidden Track in Folkestone. However, upon hearing the first mix, they were inspired to dive in, going on to lay down all of the tracks that became ‘Bloom’. The result is an emotionally weathered offering of heartfelt pop rock, reminiscent of Jimmy Eat World, Deaf Havana and Taking Back Sunday. Noting influences from both the ‘old’ and the ‘new’, they feel the acts they adore have shaped their sound, but that they offer something different. With the release now available they conclude: ''Our debut EP 'Bloom' doesn't have a set message throughout, instead each track has its own vibe and story, all related to our own personal experiences growing up. We feel the title 'Bloom' encapsulates the collection of stories and gives the audience the impression of something fresh and new. We hope you enjoy!''

Written and recorded in a cramped North Hollywood, CA studio, Crooked Teeth was produced by first time producers Nicholas “RAS” Furlong and Colin Brittain, with the exception of “Born for Greatness,” which saw the band collaborate with writer/producer Jason Evigan (Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, Zedd, Maroon 5) for this positive, pulsating anthem.  Furlong and Brittain, who grew up listening to Papa Roach, inspired the band to revisit some of the traits that personally endeared the band to them, most notably Jocoby Shaddix's remarkable rapping technique and the bands intense live energy.
 
“The first time we met up with RAS and Colin, they said that [2000's] Infest was on constant rotation when they were growing up and they wanted to bring back some of that fire,” says Shaddix.  Adds Furlong, “The whole idea was to take the classic elements of Papa Roach that everyone loved and revamp them into a modern version of the sound through the creative process, and we ended up with a bold, courageous and more adventurous version of Papa Roach.” 

The Furlong/Brittain production team worked to bring in elements of music from different genres and parts of the world, and pockets of rhythm people associate more with rap or reggae, while still staying true to Papa Roach's sound. “The people who have wanted to hear me rap for years are gonna love some of the viciousness on this record,” Shaddix proclaims.

"The freshness of 'Crooked Teeth' hits you straight away...and has you feeling like there is a surprise around every corner as a new track starts" (Heavy Magazine). From the instantly infectious nature of the title track to the atmospheric sheen of the moody ballad “Periscope” (featuring Skylar Grey) and the acoustic/ hip-hop rock mashup of “Sunrise Trailer Park” (featuring Machine Gun Kelly), Crooked Teeth displays the various sides of Papa Roach and illustrates why they've managed to remain relevant while other musical trends ebb and flow.
