“Hello friends and Happy New Year! We’ve kicked off 2018 in a great way, touring all over Europe with the legendary Rage. The first few shows of the tour have been insane!

British Grunge Rockers WEAK13 Release New Viking Inspired Video For ‘Loyal Coward’

British independent band WEAK13 have released the ‘Loyal Coward’ music video set in the Viking Age today (January 13th 2018) featuring the Svartland Living History Society. who hail from Wolverley, near Kidderminster. Their latest music video, taken from their album ‘They Live’, is definitely the most commercial sounding WEAK13 song to date but nothing is ever quite what it seems in regards to how the band functions.

Check out the new video below:

Normally a WEAK13 tune is coated in semiotics, subliminal messages or loud subtext but the first glance of ‘Loyal Coward’ appears surprisingly landmine free, extremely mainstream and very radio friendly. Whilst on the surface it appears as if this is them selling out it’s more than likely that this a clever rouse rather than a U-Turn but are they really playing with people’s minds?

JYNX Release ‘Levitate’ Single

Following the success of their previous single ‘Fade’, New York based Nu Metal band JYNX have released their new single ‘Levitate’ which boasts heavy riffs, huge choruses, soaring vocals and a beat you can really get behind… all the things we love about Nu Metal and the many genres that created it!

“Levitate is a really personal and lyrically heavy song that we felt was 100% necessary to be written. There are a lot of people who suffer from depression, and a few of us are no strangers to that. We wanted to relay the message that anyone feeling that way is absolutely not alone, and encourage them reach out and get help before it can take a tragic turn.”

ALLEGAEON launches cover of Rush’s ‘Animate’ on all digital music services


unnamed (95)

During the recording sessions for ‘Proponent for Sentience‘, Denver, CO’s ALLEGAEON recorded two Rush covers. Fans have already heard ‘Subdivisions’, which was included on the album and has since become the band’s most streamed track on Spotify.  ALLEGAEON is releasing their cover of ‘Animate’ worldwide on all digital music services. Listen to the song and stream/download from your preferred provider here: smarturl.it/allegaeon-animate

Guitarist Greg Burgess elaborates: “When we settled on Rush to cover during the ‘Proponent’ sessions, I simply couldn’t pick which song to do. ‘Subdivisions’ or ‘Animate.’ Both were favorites for me personally, and both were sort of ‘under the radar’ eg. not ‘Tom Sawyer’ or ‘Spirit of the Radio.’ Where the original idea was to do a cover for a Japanese bonus track, we figured if we did both we could cover a special song for both the Japan AND Europe pressing. Then the powers that be decided to just include ‘Subdivisions’ on the album, and keep ‘Animate’ in reserve for something. Jan 6th, 2018 is the only occurrence of the golden ratio in date form that will occur during our life time. So 1.6.18 seemed like the perfect date to release it in Allegaeon fashion.
