News Bits & Pieces

Blackpool, UK band Boston Manor has shared a music video for their single ‘Drowned In Gold‘.

The band is currently on the UK Kerrang! Tour with The Amity Affliction, Vukovi and Casey. Their last full length was 2016’s ‘Be Nothing‘, and you can expect more new material from them in 2018.

Check out the video clip below.

Senses Fail have announced their 7th full-length album, ‘If There Is A Light, It Will Find You‘, with their brand new single, ‘Double Cross‘, an electric track featuring clean vocals and fiery hooks.

The new 12 song album will be released on February 16th, 2018 via Pure Noise Records / Sony Music Australia.

If There Is A Light, It Will Find You‘ was produced by Beau Burchell (Moose Blood, Saosin, Hands Like Houses) and is the first time singer Buddy Nielsen has fully written the entirety of the album alone. Nielsen experienced life-altering shifts over the past two years that have contributed directly to the making of this record. The band has always been known for pushing boundaries lyrically and addressing topical issues from stage during a live show, but this time around you can feel the weight of uncontrollable stressors wearing down on Buddy as he navigates the listener through his personal life, from song to song.

Listen to ‘Double Cross‘ below.

Sydney’s For All Eternity are set to release their new album, ‘The Will To Rebuild‘ on December 15th.

Pre-orders for the album are available to order now [Here].

It was produced by the band’s guitarist Nick Page, with mixing and mastering by Josh Shroeder. ‘The Will To Rebuild‘ is an anthology of the stages of grief; undeniably empowering, shamelessly sorrowful, gut wrenching, grim. At the heart of ‘The Will To Rebuild‘ is the struggle to claw our way back to life when life seems too difficult to live. Deeply personal lyrics cut to the bone and intertwine with melody and technical ferocity to create a devastating heaviness.

Watch their recent video for ‘The Vacated‘ from the album below.

Underground hardcore supergroup, END, has debuted a music video for their track ‘Necessary Death‘. Directed by Bobby Bates, this is the second music video the band has released.

The debut EP, ‘From The Unforgiving Arms of God‘, came out back in September on Good Fight Music on limited edition 12 inch vinyl and digital formats.

The group comments:

END started as an homage to those darker classic 90s hardcore records we grew up listening to. A lot of the influence and attitude towards heavy music that we’ve incorporated into our other projects over the years stemmed from this era, so it was fun to go full on into that territory and make a destructive record.

Their 6 song debut EP was produced, mixed and mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio.

END is a collaboration of members from Fit For An Autopsy, Counterparts, Misery Signals, Reign Supreme, and Structures, playing heavy hardcore that influenced END from their youth.

Perth based melodic metal band Icarus Lives have had a busy 2017, releasing their debut album ‘Vantablack‘ to a rampant home crowd, performing at 3 renowned Australian festivals in Perth, Sydney & Adelaide and are now releasing the albums second single; ‘Never Enough‘.

The band consists of Sara Murray on vocals, the twin lead guitar attack of Cameron Michael & Taviri Dante Starwood and the rhythm section of bass player Chris Ayling & drummer Naomi Treacy.

Vantablack‘ is available via the band’s web store, selected retailers and all good digital outlets. Give it a listen below. The band aim to push to overseas markets in 2018, including Asia, Europe & the USA whilst continuing to strengthen their Australian following.
