News Bits & Pieces

TIRED MINDS – ‘MIDNIGHT MEN’ VIDEO CLIP
A video clip for the track ‘Midnight Men‘, from Newcastle outfit Tired Minds new album, ‘LOOM‘ is now available to view.

While one might be tempted to label them hardcore, their sonic palette extends far beyond traditional boundaries. Bursts of technicality, layered guitar work, and an experimental, free-flowing approach to songwriting have allowed Tired Minds to create an album that is raw, powerful, and utterly unique.

At various points, ‘LOOM‘ calls to mind The Dillinger Escape Plan through bursts of violence; La Dispute with it’s intense emotional content; Converge through the beautiful, organic production; Cursed in the darkness that swirls underneath the music; even The Bronx in rare moments of rock-catchiness.

The album is out on Art As Catharsis on June 16th. Watch the video below.

Their contribution to the Queen’s Silver Jubilee marked a high-point in the history of punk rock.

ENTER SHIKARI RELEASE NEW TRACK
Enter Shikari have revealed their new track ‘Supercharge‘ featuring Big Narstie. The single was released overnight on Play It Again Sam via Inertia Music.

The song was penned last year when lead singer Rou Reynolds and Big Narstie were introduced by mutual photographer friend Jordan Curtis Hughes. Reynolds then went on to produce the track, assisted by the bands live engineer Tim Morris and it was then mixed by David Kosten (Everything Everything / Bat For Lashes).

Reynolds said:

I started writing a lot of new music at the start of 2016. ‘Supercharge’ emerged after a pretty vicious cull, and we began getting excited about it as touring started to quiet down later in 2016. Through mutual friends here in London we got in touch with Narstie, who came down and hung at the studio September, nailing his bars like a pro. I’m excited to get the track out into the world now.

NY IN 64 – COULDN’T BE SAVED’ VIDEO CLIP
NY IN 64 have shared a music video for their single, ‘Couldn’t Be Saved‘.

The track will appear on their album, ‘The Gentle Indifference of the Night‘, which is set for worldwide release this Friday 26th May.

It is the follow-up to 2015’s self-titled debut and documents NY IN 64 pushing their sonic template to new heights, realizing an even more refined and uniquely inspired style of instrumental hardcore aggression.
