Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-06-16 21:02 Pop punk's new golden boys State Champs released a new song and video from their upcoming record, Living Proof, out June 15, 2018 on Pure Noise Records.
"Our Time To Go" was directed by Chris Fleck Hernandez, and received its world premiere this weekend at the State Champs' pop-up shop in NYC. The band is currently on a whirlwind tour before their newest album comes out, with another pop-up in LA scheduled for release day and several in-stores (all info & dates below).
Over the past decade, Albany, New York’s State Champs have become a major player in the world of pop-punk, helping define the shape of the genre for a new generation of fans. And on June 15, Living Proof will push pop-punk forward.
Formed in 2010 by vocalist Derek DiScanio and guitarist Tyler Szalkowski, the pair began laying the foundation of State Champs in garages and basements throughout their hometown. The band’s lineup would shift a bit, but DiScanio and Szalkowski were always at the helm, crafting the band’s 2013 debut, The Finer Things, along with guitarist Tony "Rival" Diaz and drummer Evan Ambrosio. They’d add bassist Ryan Scott Graham the following year and, in 2015, they’d release Around The World And Back, a record that elevated State Champs to a frontrunner in the genre.
The band’s third album,Living Proof, will be released June 15 on Pure Noise Records, and it’s the most ambitious and cohesive work in the band’s catalog. “It was like, let’s take as many swings at it, try as many new things and experiment, until we get to the point where we could start searching through it all and then find the album,” says DiScanio of the writing process. After touring for Around The World And Back wrapped, the band returned to Albany, headed back into the garage, and started writing songs for what would become the framework for Living Proof. Getting back to their roots paid dividends, as the band had a new batch of songs ready, and once they linked up with the album’s producers, they wrote even more.
Living Proof was recorded in two different sessions with different teams assisting the band. The first session saw John Feldmann producing, who brought his knack for writing hit records—which he’s done for bands like Blink-182 and Good Charlotte—into the fold. But State Champs wouldn’t let their old-school roots die, teaming up with Mike Green and Kyle Black, the pair that shepherded Around The World And Back across the finish line. “If there was only one chance we had at beating the sound of Around The World And Back, we still had to have them involved,” said DiScanio. With the recording process split in two, it allowed State Champs to write and record more songs than ever before, culling it down to the most potent batch possible. “At the end of the writing and recording process, we had 19 or 20 songs. We looked at each other like, ‘Holy shit. What the hell? This has never happened before,’” he said. .
Not only that, State Champs collaborated with some of pop-punk’s heaviest hitters, as the band co-wrote songs with Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low and Mark Hoppus from Blink-182. Though State Champs had no intention of working with Hoppus, the punk legend stopped by Feldmann’s studio while the band was recording and quickly took a liking to them Before long, Hoppus was helping the band write a pair of songs, working with DiScanio on the lyrics, and then jumping in the vocal booth to lay down some parts of his own. “We had no idea he was even coming in,” said DiScanio, “Then the next day, me and Mark Hoppus are just sitting out by John Feldmann’s pool writing lyrics from scratch. And that ultimately ended up being ‘Dead And Gone,’ which is the first single on the record.”
This chance encounter speaks to what’s at the heart of Living Proof, and that’s DiScanio’s embrace of the things you can’t prepare for. “Living Proof has a lot to do with independence, and finding the independence within you, embracing the mixed emotions that fall in your lap a lot of the time,” said DiScanio, noting that the album’s title is taken from the song “Cut Through The Static,” where he proclaims, “Let’s cut through the static and be the living proof.” On an album full of go-for-broke moments, State Champs pushed themselves to new heights without ever forgetting where they came from.
“There are songs on this album about everything,” he said, “There’s break-ups, and flings, love, loss, all of that. I’ve seen a little bit of everything through this writing process.” Living Proof is a record about coming out the other side those experiences, both triumphant and humbled. That growth as palpable, as State Champs made a record that’s like nothing they’ve done before, but is still an an album that only they could ever make.

Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-06-15 17:33 THE AGONY SCENE have unveiled the second single from their new album Tormentor, out July 20 via Outerloop Records/Cooking Vinyl. "The song is about the abuse of power and trust," the band said. "More specifically, authority figures preying on naivety and using fear as a means to control and manipulate."
Tormentor is the band's first album since 2007's Get Damned (Century Media), which was preceded by 2005's The Darkest Red (Roadrunner) and 2003's self-titled release (Solid State).
"The Agony Scene, was the gateway band in the era of aggressive dark metalcore, paving the way for a new generation of metal fans (including myself)," said Outerloop president Shan Dan Horan. "It's impossible for me to have a conversation with a metal artist without them mentioning The Agony Scene as an influence. That being said, I'm extremely excited to be a part of their most aggressive album to date."
The story of the outlaw and highwayman Cushy Glen is embedded in Irish folklore, but his lethal tale is not a myth, it is a real story!
He terrorised residents and travelers around the Coleraine area of Northern Ireland for many years just over two centuries ago. Cushy's particular forte was to lie in wait as men left the regions pubs in a drunken state, choosing a victim who looked likely to still have money left in his pockets before pressing ahead with his deadly attack, cutting the throat of the poor soul, robbing him and then making a very hasty exit.
This all took place along a stretch of road notoriously known as the "Murder Hole". It is said that he may well have carried out his dastardly deeds assisted by a band of five rogues, "Cushy's Gang". The highwayman was eventually shot and killed during an attempted robbery, but Cushy's men await his return unaware of his fate, and this video introduces you to them and lets you inside their hideaway!
Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-06-15 17:27 US thrash metallers BLACK FAST have released the second single from their upcoming LP Spectre Of Ruin, out July 13th via eOne. Guitarist Aaron Akin said:"'Silhouette Usurper' was one of the first songs we finished for this new record. Compared to our other songs, this is most song-liest of songs we have written."
BLACK FAST’s Spectre of Ruin was produced at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida, with Erik Rutan, the Hate Eternal frontman who has worked with Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, andSix Feet Under. It’s all killer, no filler, demonstrating the destructive force of neo-thrash and progressive death-infused heavy metal at its finest.
The band's music is a vibrant soundtrack to society’s collapse and a celebration of defiant resolution. The BLACK FAST mission is ruthlessly simple: champion musical aggression, bark at the moon, raise a fist and headbang like there’s no tomorrow.
The band will hit the road this summer in various stops across the eastern half of the United States. The band kicks it off with a performance at the 17th Annual ShowcaseSTL presented by The Riverfront Times followed by a batch of support dates with Exmortus on the "Summer of Steel" tour. BLACK FAST will then head out with Ringworm until they reach Cincinnati,OH where they'll participate in the first Annual TRANSPLANT FEST with Ringworm & Incantation on July 21st.
