News Bits & Pieces

TONIGHT ALIVE SHARE SILVERCHAIR COVER
Tonight Alive have released ‘Without You‘: the third single from ‘Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair‘, set for release on November 17th via UNFD.

Tonight Alive join acts like The Amity Affliction, Northlane, In Hearts Wake and Ocean Grove putting their spin on classic Silverchair hits from their stellar discography.

Jenna McDougall says it was an honour to record ‘Without You‘, as ‘Diorama‘ has a special place in her life.

I was hugely inspired by Silverchair’s Diorama as a young teenager. I knew every vocal and musical intricacy of the record and would jam it front to back on the weekends with the previous singer of our band. ‘Without You’ has a special place in my heart for that reason and the full circle of recording our own version of it was a privilege.

Listen to the song below. Pre-orders for the release can be found [Here].

POP EVIL SHARE ‘WAKING LIONS’ VIDEO CLIP
American rock band Pop Evil have announced a brand new single and music video for a track called ‘Waking Lions’ from their forthcoming self-titled album.

Vocalist Leigh Kakaty comments;

This is a dawn of a new day for Pop Evil. The new lineup feels like a whole new chapter for us. We could not be more proud to lead off this new album cycle with Waking Lions, sending a positive message to our fans.

Pop Evil will release ‘Pop Evil‘, their fifth studio LP on February 16th via Entertainment One.

The band brought on veteran producer Kato Khandwala and have been hard at work since early June. The band spent most of the summer in Nashville, TN at Studio A in Sound Emporium Studios and finished up the album at Sphere Studios in Los Angeles, CA last month.

CIRCLES JOIN THE NE OBLIVISCARIS TOUR IN FEBRUARY
Melbourne band Circles have been announced to join the February ‘Urn‘ album launch tour for Ne Obliviscaris.

Circles combination of pounding rhythms and rumbling bass lines set against butter melting vocals and razor edge guitar tones have been laid out across 2011’s ‘The Compass‘ EP and their debut full length, 2013’s ‘Infinitas‘, plus 2016 single ‘Sand & Wind‘.

Their relentless tour ethic has seen them share the stage with the likes of Meshuggah and Textures at Euroblast 2013, touring Europe with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Monuments and After The Burial and at home with Fear Factory, Periphery and Polaris.
