TEXAS IN JULY ANNOUNCES FALL TOUR WITH AFTER THE BURIAL

Posted in All Metal, News, Shows, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 7, 2014 by Randy

Pennsylvania metal band Texas In July will join After The Burial on a fall headlining tour, which kicks off on September 13th in Moorhead, MN. The band will be touring as direct support behind their highly anticipated full-length record, Bloodwork, which is due out on September 16th via Equal Vision Records. Tickets for the tour are on sale now at http://soundrink.com/front/tour/after-the-burial.

Texas In July recently announced the impending release of their fourth studio album, Bloodwork, and debuted a video for their song “Broken Soul.” The new song and upcoming album marks the band’s first record with their new singer, JT Cavey, who has reinvigorated the band with his brutal screams and cathartic vocals.
With the addition of Cavey, along with cohorts Adam Gray (drums), Chris Davis (guitar) and Ben Witkowski (bass), Texas In July approached the recording of Bloodwork with a new sense of purpose and direction, holding nothing back as they unleashed some of the heaviest riffs and aggressive music the band has ever written. The result is nothing short of a torrential downpour of neck-snapping metal that will rain down on fans next month.
The band is currently on the road in Europe with IWRESTLEDABEARONCE and will return in September for the fall’s most brutal tour with After The Burial. Get tickets now!

YOUNG FOX RELEASES ‘PREDECESSORS’ EP TODAY!

Posted in Artist Watch, New Music, News, Releases with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2014 by Randy

Pittsburgh’s rising rock band Young Fox has released their new EP, Predecessors, today via Spartan Records. The release is currently available digitally at iTunes and from Spartan Records at http://spr.tn/youngfox.

Formed in 2012, Young Fox came together over drinks in a neighborhood pub in Pittsburgh. Martin Lunn (bassist), who’s also in revered metal band Zao, Luke Cypher (vocals/guitar/keys), who happens to share his time as the head chef at Piccolo Forno in Pittsburgh, and Chris Lehberger (drums) began writing, rehearsing and recording and eventually added Brian Schultz (guitar) to the mix, rounding out the four-piece band.
The group was fixated on honing their craft and songwriting on the new record, Predecessors, until they were completely satisfied. The results are shockingly good too.
Young Fox’s music is dynamic and heartfelt. From the record’s memorable first track “Single Phase” to the last notes of “Define The End,” Young Fox leaves it all on record. Tracks like “The Answer” and “Diet of Worms” are intense and methodical and showcase extraordinary talents from a new band that will be around for years to come.
Check out their lyric video for “Diet of Worms”

THE HAUNTED reveals details for new album, ‘Exit Wounds’

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, New Music with tags , , , , , , on July 2, 2014 by Randy

Sweden’s THE HAUNTED is finally ready to reveal some details about their upcoming album, Exit Wounds, which sees the band return to their classic deadly thrash metal sound! Due out August 25th in Europe and September 2nd in North America via Century Media Records, Exit Wounds was once again recorded with the band’s longtime producer Tue Madsen at Denmark’s Antfarm Studio (DARK TRANQUILLITY, HEAVEN SHALL BURN, SICK OF IT ALL, etc.) and features the following track-listing:

 

 

 

 

Exit Wounds track-listing:
1. 317
2. Cutting Teeth
3. My Salvation
4. Psychonaut
5. Eye Of The Storm
6. Trend Killer
7. Time (Will Not Heal)
8. All I Have
9. Temptation
10. My Enemy
11. Kill The Light
12. This War
13. Infiltrator
14. Ghost In The Machine

THE HAUNTED’s Marco Aro (vocals) comments:
“Ok my friends, so here we are again…at the threshold of a new THE HAUNTED release. It maybe doesn’t sound very exiting to some…but…it is!!!
This time around we’ve found our way back to where we once started! You could say that we’ve gathered the old crew, both in music and the artwork. Our old friend Andreas ‘Diaz ‘ Pettersson is back, an amazing artist with a rap sheet which includes the artwork on no less than four THE HAUNTED albums. He always finds a way to put our thoughts into print where he sometimes even scares us a bit…and this release in no different.  
We decided on ‘Exit Wounds’ as being a good title for the album given the recent history of the band, but also a sort of a phoenix rising. FUCKING JÄVLA FÅGEL FENIX….WE ARE BACK!!!
We are so excited about this little thing we’ve created! Can’t wait to get out there and start playing these songs and for me personally, I could not be more proud of what we have done, I really hope you’re going to enjoy it!”

As previously reported, Exit Wounds sees THE HAUNTED return with their revamped band line-up, featuring founding members Jonas Björler (bass) and Jensen (guitars) teaming up with former members Adrian Erlandsson (drums) and Marco Aro (vocals), together with newest member Ola Englund (guitars). A first preview of new material was made public in January 2014 with the release of the 3-track single Eye Of The Storm, which can be purchased at CM Distro as a 7″ or at iTunes as a digital copy.
