Upstate NY's Surmiser are a grunge, hard rock and post punk marriage who play every note with the conviction of lifers who have long since given up the notion of turning back. The band is an excellent power trio and have just released their buzzed about latest effort Hold The Static. Songs about depression, addiction and self assessment pair with focused but inspired soul eruptions that take you on a journey through a wide range of emotions. Surmiser are very much worth checking out, constantly working on ways to expand their impact and body of songs to mirror their experiences into something representative to their values in sonic form.

Every Time I Die has parted ways with drummer Daniel Davidson. Keith Buckley announced the member change last night in Portland, ME.
Currently the band is playing live with Norma Jean’s terrific Clayton Holyoak, who has commented:
“There have been a few people that have been curious as of what I’ve been up to musically lately. I Was in San Diego writing with some friends less than a week ago when I got a text. I finished the time we had writing and flew to buffalo to learn 17 songs in the 4 days I had before we left for tour. I know there’s no footage of me but I swear I’m that little rocker in the back. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and cheered me a long the way! I really don’t know how I would convince myself this was possible if it wasn’t for you. @lexilazaro @dreudamn @johnaldfinn and my amazing mother that constantly reminds me that I can do anything. It’s been a stressful past 5 days but this shit pays off! Keep following your dreams!”Add to My Radar

Roadburn 2016 is lookin’ sexy as usual with Black Mountain, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth and other killer acts slated to appear, but many people will be drooling about a full set of Jane Doe from some band called Converge you may have heard of. While that is cool, I think all the emphasis on that record takes away from how many of their other albums are just as awesome (Axe To Fall and You Fail Me in particular). But hey, it’s still rad. But I’m much more keen on the second announcement which finds the band teaming up with some awesome guests to reinterpret some of their weirder tunes.
To celebrate the upcoming 15 year anniversary of their legendary Jane Doe album, CONVERGE will perform the album in its entirety for the first and last time. The album is considered a classic that defined the metallic hardcore genre as we know it today. This special set is exclusive to the Roadburn Festival and will not be played again anywhere, ever.
CONVERGE will play the Jane Doe album live in its entirety at Roadburn 2016 on Thursday, April 14.
CONVERGE “Blood Moon” is a collaboration between members Jacob Bannon, Kurt Ballou, Nate Newton, and Ben Koller and guest musicians Chelsea Wolfe, Ben Chisholm, Stephen Brodsky, and Steve Von Till. Together as a multi-instrumental group they will create renditions of existing CONVERGE material focusing on the band’s slower, more ambitious work within their legendary catalogue.
CONVERGE “Blood Moon” will perform live at Roadburn 2016 on Saturday, April 16.

“Crushed” by Parkway Drive from the album IRE is the Aussie band’s brazen new video. The record is available September 25th and so fr every single has been even more massive than usual. One of the best in their field.

“Welcome to the free world
Where nothing’s as it seems
Tell me, can you find a cure
When you can’t see, and you can’t feel the disease…”
Parkway Drive are really at their most unstoppable at present, playing to huge crowds, dropping a Rage cover of “Bulls On Parade” (fun and heavy, but guitar tones didn’t do the groove justice) on a sea of mostly white fans. And now in this bad ass “Vice Grip” clip the metalcore band stole the best video of the week away from Slipknot’s sort of redundant “Killpop” (a great song musically and performance-wise, but the visuals seem dated and the lyrics, while super catchy, sound like a bad torture porn. Not my fave thing to know some of the meatier headed maggots are singing ,“I guess there’s nothing left to do, but have my way” ).
Anyway, new Parkway album IRE is due in September but fans can sing along with the bro “yeah yeah yeah” chant now and watch the Aussies dude it up in the desert. The footage of the band jumping out of the airplane together is really pretty fuckin’ cool and you can’t help but feel their bond and like these guys have the scene in the palm of their hands right now! Many solid songs and a dedicated drive is making this band new fans everyday, deservedly.

Bring Me The Horizon have a new single for ya, “Drown,” which will officially be released on December 7. I like these Yorkshire boys and think that they give it hard on stage, where it matters most. They have drive and don’t deserve to drown. We are real quick to tear one another down. Heavy music needs to evolve and be vetted and critiqued, sure…but we also need to support the scene together in its’ various forms. I’m bringing this up because of the big national news today in American college football about the racism faced recently from haters and rivals of Devin Gardner and also because I can’t believe I am writing a BMTH article to distract myself from how bummed I am about Tyson from Scary Kids dying and also some potential trouble in the Skeletonwitch ranks (they cancelled their Albany date and have been playing as a 4 piece). Thank God that Exodus have cracked the U.S. Billboard top 40 with their new record (a miracle of thrash justice). But seriously, let’s be happy for heavy bands that can inspire like BMTH and bring people together. This video has some cool twists and is fun, even as the song is moody and lonely as heck at times.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I realized there were only three bands playing. I didn’t know how early or late the show would be over, how long sets would be, or whether or not the bands would lack energy due to the small bill. The Parkway Drive show would be a different animal.

With more bands to be announced.
Every Time I Die Vocalist Keith Buckley had this to say of the tour:
“We’ve always put a lot of effort into making this band work and when we perform we do so at the highest level of intensity, so to finally be deemed an ‘AllStar’ is a dream come true. I plan on relaxing in a hot tub with Wade Boggs or smoking huge cigars with Ronnie Harmon talking about our visits to Hollywood. Those are just some casual things us AllStars do when we’re not giving 110%. But that’s rare. This tour has a solid line-up and we’re excited to be a part of it. See you all this summer.”

It seems that Bring Me The Horizon are still in a giving mood. After pushing the release date for their new record Sempiternal up to April 2 (out via Epitaph) in response to its leak and after putting the whole album up for streaming, they just released another track from the deluxe edition of the record called “Deathbeds.” The track is one of 3 previously unreleased tracks from that edition of the album, and it features guest vocals from Oliver Sykes’ girlfriend, Hannah Snowdon. You can check it out here.Add to My Radar
After the album leaked sometime last week a whole two months before its original release date, British deathcore staples Bring Me The Horizon have moved the release date for their new full-length, Sempiternal (via Epitaph), to April 2.
The band also decided to post the entire album for streaming, which you can find here.
“Due to overwhelming and phenomenal demand, Sempiternal will be with you sooner than you thought, we are glad you have heard and & love it and all we can ask is if you enjoy this album you’ll help the band continue to make records and buy it when it’s released officially,” said lead vocalist Oliver Sykes.
