WEST THEBARTON ANNOUNCE A COUPLE OF SHOWS
Still flushed from their recent name change and the addition of new drummer Caitlin Thomas, Adelaide’s West Thebarton have announced a couple of new shows at Melbourne’s Worker’s Club on Friday 8th September and Friday 22nd September at Adelaide’s Fat Controller.

Tickets are on sale now for both shows.

You can expect to hear new music from the band shortly. Guitarist/drummer B.B. Bolado says,

after releasing ‘Moving Out’ and completing the debut album, the last six months have been a noisy blur for us and we’ve never felt better with our live show. It’s a good time to jump out of the cold and jump around to some new music.

PROPHETS OF RAGE SHARE NEW VIDEO CLIP
Prophets Of Rage: Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D, B-Real and DJ Lord have released the video for ‘Living On The 110‘, the lead single from their forthcoming, self-titled debut LP which is set for release September 15th through Sony Music Australia.

Pre-orders for the album are available on iTunes [Here].

Living On The 110‘ reflects Prophets Of Rage’s preferred method of addressing social issues from the ground up. Last July, the band performed a surprise show on a Skid Row rooftop in downtown L.A., raising awareness of the homelessness issue in the heart of one of the country’s largest dispossessed populations. The group took their message of activism and grassroots change to 35 cities last summer during their Make America Rage Again Tour, with a portion of proceeds from each show benefitting local homelessness charities.

AMON AMARTH RELEASE NEW VIDEO CLIP
After releasing videos for ‘First Kill‘ and ‘At Dawn’s First Light‘ last year, in support of their latest album, ‘Jomsviking‘, Amon Amarth have now debuted a new video from the record: ‘The Way Of Vikings‘ – which was once again directed by Grupa 13.

Watch the video – featuring the full band as Peaky Blinders inspired characters at a brutal underground gambling hall and boxing match below.

As the band’s first concept record in their storied career, ‘Jomsviking‘ tells a tragic, original tale of conflict and revenge, backed by the Swedes’ trademark melodic, anthemic metal – which was produced and mixed once again by Andy Sneap.

The album is available [Here].
