Lo-Pan release mind bending new video for ‘Savage Heart’

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at 12:18 PM (PST)

Lo-Pan return with a staggeringly cool new music video for their song “Savage Heart.” This trippy and creative clip will make even straight edge kids feel like they swam underwater to the Moon. Into it. Created by collage artist Somsara Rielly using old school stop-motion animation, it is one of the more refreshing videos I have seen in 2019.

Order new album Subtle today! The album is available on LP with a sleeve designed by Eric Palmerlee, and as always for Aqualamb releases, as a 100 page art book/digital download package. RIYL Torche, Nebula, ASG.

“Whatever you may see. The change resides in me. Fluidly. Any genre any dream sphinges, sibling selves and queens. A rollercoaster for each moment mood or picture frame. Please love me the same.’ from “Observation Deck/Shinges Sibling Selves And Queens”

I identify as multi-gender at this point, after a lot of research and therapy and trans groups and not feeling quite like what other people were discussing wrapped up my experiences similarly in a bow. I know that can be confusing for people. They are like ,”what do you want? It has to be this or that.” Nope. MYE.

This is a lengthy interview conducted in July by Kriegmaster Hatesturm of the great anti fascist agitators Neckbeard Deathcamp, kind enough to inquire into the guest artists, overall album background and the reasons behind prominent multi-gender/non binary themes on my new Walking Bombs album Sphinges, Sibling Selves and Queens. The album is out now via Nefarious Industries HERE.

Read the interview BELOW and thank you.

Sin Shake Sin signs to Sumerian Records

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 3:54 PM (PST)

Nashville, Tennessee hard rocker Stacy Hogan has signed his newest project – Sin Shake Sin – to Sumerian Records earlier this week.

Hogan had this to say of the signing:

“Ash [Avildsen, owner of Sumerian Records] called me up, said he really loved the music and that he was excited to help take things to the next level.. I’m excited to be a part of the Sumerian roster along with so many other artists that I enjoy and respect. We share a common vision and Sumerian provides the freedom to cultivate that vision.”

Sin Shake Sin have also released a music video for the track “Nobody’s Gonna Save My Soul.” Of the video Hogan says:

“The video involves a cult-like congregation who’ll stop at nothing to gain followers, only to reveal they aren’t who they seem. This is commentary on those throughout my life who have went out of their way to judge people only for the purpose of distraction away from their own guilt. We see this every day on social media, which can also be like a cult.”

Asking Alexandria release new track “The Violence”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 4:59 PM (PST)

Earlier this week English rockers Asking Alexandria released their latest track “The Violence.”

Complete with a cheesy zombie movie music video that features the boys in the band, the track is the first new track since the band’s 2017 self-titled album.

The music video was written and directed by Jensen Noen and presented by Scissor Films and Sumerian Films. The video follow the plight of every day zombies: Cocaine Shane (Danny Worsnop), Peter (Ben Bruce), Disco Luke (Cameron Liddell), Phat Noah (James Cassells) and Waterboy Eric (Sam Bettley).

Says guitarist Ben Bruce:

“We are back bigger, better, louder and more insane than ever before. This single encompasses everything we have been working towards. Huge guitars, anthemic drums and some of the catchiest, most technically accomplished vocals that Danny has ever delivered, and this is only just the beginning.”

Worsnop adds:

“The Violence was an incredibly rewarding song to create. Ben and I both got to go way outside anything we’d done before and create something fresh and engaging. Thematically the song is about the way mainstream media and politicians manipulate and spread mistruth amongst the people to encourage and create anger, fear, division, and conflict in their quest to control and acquire power. As the history books have shown, this only goes so far before the people stand up and say enough is enough. I hope everyone enjoys what we’ve created here, we had a great time making it, and even more fun shooting the video!”

Asking Alexandria are headed out on the road later this month with Papa Roach and Bad Wolves on the “Who Do You Trust” US Summer Tour. Then in September Asking Alexandria will join Shinedown, Papa Roach, and Savage After Midnight on another North American tour.

Guns N’ Roses announce 8 new US Tour Dates

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, June 17, 2019 at 7:08 AM (PST)

GNR have announced new tour dates Stateside for Not In This Lifetime. I am real tempted to sell a leg and get to the Florida date somehow so I can croon along to “Sorry” and “Civil War”, as I have still never gotten to see the band live. Anyhow, new music is also rumored to be on the way and I hope it is in a classic/ hard rock vein like some of the stronger Chinese tracks such as “I.R.S.”, “Street Of Dreams” and “Chinese Democracy” more than the more experimental stuff. I am sure it is gonna have more bite anyway with the current line-up of OG legends and tour tested newer members who slugged it out and earned their keep.

Pre-sale for the new dates starts on June 18 at 10 a.m. local time, with V.I.P. packages available then. General sale begins on June 21 at 10 a.m. local time.
Newly announced tour dates:
Sep. 25 – Charlotte, NC @ Spectrum Center
Oct. 01 – Jacksonville, FL @ Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena
Oct. 07 – Wichita, KS @ Intrust Bank Arena
Oct. 15 – Lincoln, NE @ Pinnacle Bank Arena
Oct. 23 – Oklahoma City, OK @ Chesapeake Energey Arena
Oct. 29 – Salt Lake City, UT @ Vivint Smart Home Arena
Dec. 01 – Las Vegas, NV @ Collosseum at Ceasars Palace
Dec. 02 – Las Vegas, NV @ Collosseum at Ceasars Palace

In addition to the above-mentioned shows, GUNS N’ ROSES will make four U.S. festival appearances this fall — Louder Than Life, Austin City Limits, Exit 111 and Voodoo Music + Arts Experience.

wahhh…my fans suck and I don’t do nearly enough to condemn their bullshit

CW: A lot of bad shit. 

Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner but I just been busy. I wanted to just live my life and pretend the problem wasn’t as bad as it is but frankly, at this point…fuck you. It is more and more impossible to ignore that the MAJORITY of Stan Culture is extremely toxic, enabling and nihilistic. You think racist black metal trolls are bad? They are. But a lot of the shit pales in comparison to POP culture these days. Like, when did Pop become more nihilistic than the worst elements of the hardcore scene?

A friend who is a teacher the other day was telling me about some four year olds who she caught cornering a frog trying to murder it. They were gleefully laughing. She admonished them and picked it up and rescued it and put it near an empty non-functional pipe where it could escape and one of the kids said ,”I hope it still burns to death.” Frankly, while I know some kids that young don’t have the wits to determine what consequences are real and what is just a game, empathy is still a thing and if you don’t stop sadism like that it festers and can be habit forming. The story honestly made me think of the supporters of numerous pop stars these days.

If you allow nihilism as a social solution of course people will return to it. Ironically, many of them will probably use Frog avatars down the line. Some of them will just gaslight and say you “deserve” it for having an opinion different than them, which in Stan bingo of pathetic overused rhetoric is the box you will check off quickly where they say you are “causing drama”.

As much as I want to bitch about MAGA trolls and Gamergate types though, this article is indeed about Stan culture. Shit has gotten so nihilistic and out of control and NO, I am not gonna dig up “receipts” for everything I mention, assholes. Use your common sense. Anyone with a brain knows and can see daily the shit going on I am gonna talk about. We all know about Nicole Curran getting death threats over nothing. I am just gonna relate stuff I have seen myself or that I know is out there which happened to my partner.

When I was growing up I remember Axl Rose wrote “Get In The Ring”. He called out a lot of people he didn’t like in a song and said he wanted to fight them. In hindsight it is one of the worst songs by one of my favorite bands lyrically (the music kicks ass), and I appreciate how over the years Axl has tried to reform and also move more to the left, vocally opposes Trump and seems like a much better person than he used to be. I also these days CAN admire that he complained himself about who he disliked and didn’t send a mob of people after them.

If you show up to a fight and bring thirty people against one, you are a giant fucking wimp. Even more so if you bring hundreds of trolls and dogpile on someone’s personal Instagram for DAYS or WEEKS or MONTHS for disliking or critiquing your favorite overrated pop star! You got some issues Stan, I think you need some counseling. Err…Get in the ring, motherfucker.

You can make one tweet saying you aren’t crazy about something an artist did or a song and XXXtentacion, Charli XCX fans (the fucking WORST, forget what you heard about the Bey Hive) or other groups will make memes or super sexist psychotic comments bullying you within an inch of your life. They are often WORSE than NRA supporters or Alt-right groups! Seriously, my girlfriend the psych folk artist Globelamp fought for days with a pack of NRA trolls in the wake of her tweeting support for March For Our Lives but even the gun nuts and the right wing incels didn’t get as cruel and dark as some of the stan groups we have tangled with. Yes, I know incels actually murder people. I am just talking about our own experiences.

Globelamp…an actual angel.

There is literally a bingo card of responses you can fill out that you are certain to get from these mob mentality mindless stan dipshits. “Clout”, “drama”, “hater” will all be used against you and if you are, God forbid, a woman with their own opinion numerous people will call you a hoe or a thot or a stripper with no talent.

From their impending fully collaborative musical experiment, Suicide By Citizenship, New York solo outfits WALKING BOMBS and GRIDFAILURE present a new video for the emotive eco-collapse movement, “Bare Shores Bleed.” The video makes is public debut through a premiere at New Noise Magazine as the album nears release through Nefarious Industries next week.

“Bare Shores Bleed” sees WALKING BOMBS’ Morgan Y. Evans on vocals and bass, GRIDFAILURE’s David Brenner on vocals, guitar, electronics, harmonica, effects, and field recordings, album performer and producer Jay Andersen (Surmiser) on drums, and features a cast of guest contributions, including guitar from Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Snakes), vocals from Elizabeth Le Fey (Globelamp), and accordion from Benjamin Levitt (Megalophobe). The video was directed and filmed by Brenner.

With the “Bare Shores Bleed” premiere, Evans offers, “Dave mainly wrote this one, but I was really stoked Elizabeth and I sang on it together as the environment is important to both of us. She got me taking care of my health again and has been vegetarian for fifteen years. I also love the nature of where we live in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate, New York and hate that the world is threatened by the careless march of humanity. Also shout out to Jay for spending extra time on mixing this one as there was so much going on. It is thrilling to hear Brett’s chaotic guitar swells, which remind me of nature’s wrath.”

Brenner offers, “Our planet is in peril. We see some of the most devastating ecological disasters happening right in front of our eyes, we watch species go extinct daily, we clear millions of acres of woodlands yearly, and each of us throws thousands of pounds of plastic into the planet each year. We have an administration who hires rapists of the EPA to run it, and legions of ‘Flat Earthers’ and ‘coal rollers’ simply defying science and common sense. Political affiliations aside, we all need air and water. Our planet is the highest priority to all of us, and it saddens me when I see so much abuse of it every day.”

See WALKING BOMBS & GRIDFAILURE’s emotional “Bare Shores Bleed” video at New Noise Magazine RIGHT HERE.

Nefarious Industries will release Suicide By Citizenship on eco-wallet CD and all digital platforms next Friday, April 26th. Find preorders at the label webshop HERE and via Bandcamp where several other songs are streaming HERE and HERE.

Suicide By Citizenship is an album created to challenge its own creators with the intent of combining sounds from two outfits located on polar opposite ends of the underground music spectrum. The record blends a wealth of genres into a dystopian alloy of improvised jams, rife with discontent for the contemporary state of American politics, and more specifically, the current administration’s actions and policies.

Suicide By Citizenship was conceived by WALKING BOMBS’ Morgan Y. Evans and GRIDFAILURE’s David Brenner who created the album with producer Jay Andersen (Surmiser). In addition to Mike Score, guest contributions from Thomas Andrew Doyle (Tad, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth), Laura Pleasants (Kylesa, The Discussion), Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Snakes), Elizabeth Le Fey (Globelamp), BJ Allen (Full Scale Riot), Benjamin Levitt (Megalophobe), and more are featured throughout the album, which was recorded and mastered by Andersen, who also plays on the entire album, with additional recording by Brenner who created the cover art.

Spylacopa, the music project formed by Brooklyn based musician and artist John LaMacchia will release a new album on May 14th. The album titled ‘Beneath The Earth That Lies Beneath The Sea’ is a major departure from most of what the project has released to date with more ties to ambient, electronic and experimental music than earlier material which was informed mostly by post-hardcore, progressive rock and post-metal. In regards to the inspiration of the album LaMacchia added “The title of the album came to me first. This looming question of what exists beneath the earth that lies at the bottom of the deepest ocean. It’s a very frightening thought to me and you can certainly hear that in the music. On the contrary it’s fascinating to think how peaceful it might be. This sacred place, unspoiled by humanity. Once I had the title I just kept creating music with it in mind and I wound up with this body of work.”

Part I – Minauros, the first piece of music off of the album is available to stream at the Spylacopa Bandcamp page.
John LaMacchia had this to add about it “Fans of Boards Of Canada, Aphex Twin and Autechre might have a thing to say about it.”

Beneath The Earth That Lies Beneath The Sea is available for pre-order through the Spylacopa bandcamp page as well as a limited run of cassette tapes which includes a HIDDEN BONUS TRACK that will not be included with the streaming or download version. It can be pre-ordered direct through Rising Pulse Records or through the Spylacopa bandcamp page.

Band Spotlight – BES.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, March 11, 2019 at 5:46 PM (PST)

Ohio’s Bes are a calamitous racket of alt-rock infused heavy sounds and have recently released the very worth your time Pieces Missing EP. Fans of Torche, Failure or even some KEN Mode will find stuff to latch on to here. I don’t know how intentional it was but I hear a lot of late nineties influence in some of what this band is doing, but paired with an even more aggressive edge befitting our times.

Recommended Track: “Lost It All”.

Jørgen Munkeby of Shining is a road warrior and so perhaps his range of experiences has allowed him to learn how to see the humor in the following crappy situation you’ll read about in a second. I had hit him up as part of our preliminary year end coverage to see if he had a
“road story” worth sharing that was funny from this year, considering his band has been tearing it up live in support of awesome new hard rock album Animal. Turns out he had plenty to say but it wasn’t anything a band would usually laugh about. This guy has a good attitude, even when complaining, hahaha.

I’m currently midway on a 6-week release headline tour for Shining’s new album
Animal in Europe. All shows have been great, and it’s been absolutely awesome to see
how well the new songs go down with the audience. We usually open our set with the
songs “Animal” and “My Church”, and from right from the start we see more people singing
along than we’ve ever had in our shows before, which is amazing! But the funniest thing that has happened -or maybe craziest is a more correct word? – is what happened after I broke the neck off my guitar in a show in Marseille, France, last week!

All of the instruments I use, except my saxophone, are pretty new and cheap standard
stuff, because I want to be able to get the same stuff quickly from any store or backline
rental company in case it is delayed by an airline or breaks down on tour. My two guitars
on tour has been a Gibson SG Standard and an Edwards SG guitar, which is basically a
cheap but great Japanese copy of the Gibson SG. The neck of the Edwards guitar
actually broke on the last brutal and physical note on a song during a show in
Netherlands two years ago, but was later repaired.

On the last note of our song “The Madness And The Damage Done” during our Marseille
show last week, I felt that I had been a bit controlled during the whole show because of
a bruised rib I got during a show in Paris a week before. I was missing a little bit of action and physicality,so I decided to make the last note of the song a big and aggressive one, and I raised my guitar high before the note and signaled to the band that we were going to play a heavy ending when I brought the guitar down. But during that heavy downward motion my guitar snapped in two pieces just like it had done two years ago.
