PERTURBATOR AUSTRALIAN TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
Producing dark and retro futuristic music with a strong 80’s feeling, James Kent AKA Perturbator is at the forefront of the new synthwave revival (along with Danger, Lazerhawk, Kavinsky, Dan Terminus). Since the project’s inception in 2012, Perturbator’s music has launched a glorious explosion of hypnotic synthwave that is as exciting as it is innovative.

With music making an appearance in the Hollywood movie ‘The Guest‘, TV show ‘Limitless‘, and video games ‘Hotline Miami 1 & 2’, it has reached mainstream audiences globally to overwhelming acclaim. This success has seen Perturbator’s profile and demand consistently rise resulting in a string of tours worldwide throughout 2017 and now for the very first time in Australia this November.

The new Perturbator album – ‘New Model‘ is due for release ahead of the tour on October 20th. New single ‘Vantablack‘ is below the tour dates.

MAYHEM FOR MARY RELEASE VIDEO FOR DEBUT SINGLE
Brisbane band Mayhem For Mary have unleashed their new music video for their debut single ‘Ze Empire‘.

Describing the clip, the band says;

Ze Empire is the story of the day in the life of Bob McSplooge, and his interactions on that day with the other characters in the clip, known as, dog, future boy, and the people. Bob is a bit of a comical rogue, the sort of person we don’t expect to get far in life, and not to inclined to do too much with it appears other than hang out with his dog, and think highly of himself. The clip delves into a scenario where bob unwittingly gains influence and control over the people, an opportunity to build Ze Empire. What will he do with this power? Will he use it for good of evil? How will the power change him as a man? Will the future child be his foe or his Savior? All will be revealed.

Take a look below.

SLED SHARE A TASTE OF NEW ALBUM
Jacksonville Beach, FL melodic punks SLED have released a lyric video for their new song ‘Wasting Away‘ – off their upcoming release ‘A Better You‘, which will be out September 15th via Bird Attack Records.

You can pre-order the album in various bundle options via Bandcamp now [Here].

After years of small tours and festivals around the world, without an actual album being released, the band has finally finished their first official full-length.

In the punk realm there are many different genres out there, but the band says they like to think they are “Skate Punk meets Stoner Rock.” You be the judge of that.

Listen to the new song below.

CASEY RELEASE ‘CEREMONY’ VIDEO CLIP
Ceremony‘ is the latest single to be revealed from Casey’s debut album ‘Love Is Not Enough‘, which was released via Hassle Records late last year.

In vocalist Tom Weaver’s words, the track;

vents the frustration that accompanies realizing an extensive period of emotional oppression and manipulation has been suffered under the guise of a sincere relationship. The opening paragraph describes how an unrequited affection was pursued in the belief that true love prevails, only to lead into disappointment and disenfranchisement.

The music video chronicles the band’s journey since ‘Love Is Not Enough‘ was released. It’s a journey which has seen them play live across festivals like Download, Impericon and Slam Dunk and alongside bands such as Being As An Ocean, Boston Manor and Thy Art Is Murder.
