BACKYARD BABIES Release Music Video for Brand New Single ’44 Undead’

e638ecd5-644e-4041-8942-233a5f9fa589.jpg

With the release of their anticipated new studio album “Sliver & Gold” just one week away, legendary Swedish rockers BACKYARD BABIES are now launching the third single ’44 Undead’ off of the album, along with an official music video for the track. 

Watch the brand new music video for ’44 Undead’ HERE!

’44 Undead’ is an anthemic, yet somewhat melancholic tune that showcases a more introverted side of the Backyard Babies, as opposed to the first two party smasher singles off of “Sliver & Gold” so far. Its memorable hook lines are sure to be stuck in your head for a while and have ‘instant fan favourite’ written all over it.

More than three years have passed since their last studio album “Four By Four”, but 2019 sees Nicke, Dregen, Johan and Peder return to celebrate their 30thanniversary in style with a brand new record entitled “Sliver & Gold” which is due to be released on 01 March 2019 via Century Media Records. In celebration of the bands anniversary, Century Media is releasing both limited formats as special editions that will come wrapped in gold foil and include five newly recorded acoustic bonus songs!

You can pre-order the album HERE!

“Sliver & Gold” is available in the following formats:

Ltd. CD Digipak  Ltd. LP+CD (incl. LP Booklet) Digital

“Sliver & Gold” will contain 10 sizzling new songs following the exact same recipe that has made BACKYARD BABIES one of the most consistent rock bands of our time: a perfect balance between sleazy, punky, all-out party rock and roll on the one hand, and decidedly mature, thoroughly melancholic tunes on the other. While catchy sing-a-long smashers like the first single ‘Shovin’ Rocks’, album opener ‘Good Morning Midnight’, the anthemic ‘Bad Seeds’ or ’44 Undead’ will have you fist-pumping and footstompin’ along with your left foot in a cowboy boot and your right paw in a Chuck Taylor sneaker, the beautiful ballad-like album closer ‘Laugh Now, Cry Later’ will cause you to shed a tear or two into your Jack and Coke. What a ride!

The first half of 2019 will also see BACKYARD BABIES back on the road. Below you can see all the dates that have been confirmed thus far:

THE LOUNGE KITTENS Release a Tribute to Avicii; Open Up About Mental Health

cb486b5c-09f7-4f78-b507-3922dbcc8f56.jpg
THE LOUNGE KITTENS are showing fans something a little different with their latest release, a 4-song medley of tracks by Avicii, the Swedish DJ who sadly took his own life last year.

You can watch the Avicii medley here: https://youtu.be/OaA0nlhVx_c

Delicately stepping into a new genre, the girls have used their latest music video to start their own conversation about mental health in the music industry and show fans a different side to the sequins and sparkles.

“As a band, we’ve been through a really difficult time. We very nearly didn’t make it and we’ve worked really hard, both personally and together, to mend what needed fixing.” says Zan Kitten. “These Avicii tracks ended up as a sort of soundtrack to that time, coincidentally managing to say a lot of the things we were feeling.”

“On the surface, Avicii’s music is so joyous and full of spirit and energy but lyrically, there is so much pain lying underneath that really became apparent and heart-breaking once he’d passed.” says Jen Kitten. “We all connected to his lyrics, from our own experiences with mental health and wanted to honour his music and celebrate the rise and fall of the creative mind.”
 
Throughout the week the ladies have posted candid videos of themselves talking about their own struggles with mental health and the rigours of being in a band.

“There is an unspoken understanding among touring performers and crew of the emotional toll that the lifestyle takes.” continues Timia Kitten. “It’s a strange, cyclical existence where relationships are tested and the temptation of excess is too much for many. We felt it important to give this video some context, while it features some epic highlights of our time together, its mixed with unseen footage of some of the more trying moments and sewn together with us constantly in the car, which is the reality of actually being in a band.” 

Fans of the band have lauded their efforts to get a conversation going and have shared many of their own experiences with the girls. “We’re not done.” says Zan. “It’s time to open up and be more honest. It’s honestly humbling to hear that our music has helped some of our fans to feel stronger, to laugh, to stick it out for another day. If us speaking about our experiences can help ONE person to identify and feel less alone, then it’s completely worth baring our souls.”

The Avicii Medley is available to download and stream via all major retailers

BOOTYARD BANDITS (ex-The Defiled, Grim Reaper & Fury) release LEGO stop-motion video for “Hoedown Showdown”

  Founded in the Wild West of Worcester, BOOTYARD BANDITS are a bootscootin’ tongue-in-cheek country rock band on a mission to become one of the UK’s “most wanted” bands in 2019.

“We’ve been holed up on the ranch for the past year putting this band together, writing and recording the daftest and catchiest country laden rock we could” explains BAMM-BAMM.
“I, a grown man in my thirties, have also been sat in a room playing with LEGO… But for good reason! I’ve been creating the video for our debut single ‘Hoedown Showdown’- The funniest and most gruesome LEGO stop-motion you’re likely to feast your peepers on…
We’re immensely proud of it. We’re super excited for everyone to see and hear it. And we can’t wait to get out on the road and do this thing live!”

HEXVESSEL Release Video for ‘Changeling’

d5275a42-d05c-43ef-b3f3-b0371580d61e.jpg
Forest Folk band HEXVESSEL are proud to unveil a brand new music video for the single ‘Changeling’ taken from their fourth studio album “All Tree”, which is released today.

You can watch the video for ‘Changeling’ here: https://youtu.be/UsDnnk_qcTs

The song features guest vocals from Neige from Alcest (FR) and prog legend Dirk Chapman from Uriel/Arzachel/Egg/National Health on flute. The video was directed by Vesa Ranta and Aapo Lahtela for Kaira Films.

Mat McNerney from HEXVESSEL says, “The song is about change, be it growing up from childhood to adulthood or hearing the call of a vocation you feel compelled to undertake. Metamorphosis in the knowledge that, in the spirit of Kinky Friedman’s “find what you love and let it kill you,” there may never be a way back. Irreversible transformation. I think that’s kind of my interpretation of Metsänpeitto (which literally means “covered by the forest”), the Finnish folklore phenomenon, where people went missing in the forest for unexplained reasons. Once the call of the forest gets in your blood, you never truly belong to the man-made world again, and you’re never coming back. Eventually the forest draws you back home. This same myth, in various forms, also exists in Irish folklore with “changeling children” for example, who were switched by the fairies in infancy. The mythology of my upbringing, and of the country I have settled in, converging together into our “wyrd-folk” story. We are also especially honoured to have our dear brother Neige from Alcest on guest vocals and Dirk Chapman on flute for this song.”

While the North American release of “All Tree” will be on 22 February via Prophecy Productions, the album is out as of today in the rest of the world via Century Media Records.

  What the Press Are Saying About “All Tree”   “…even if you’re listening in a metropolitan tower block, with your eyes closed and your headphones on, you’ll be swept away to a sun-dappled woodland glade where spirits and nymphs frolic.”
(9/10 Metal Hammer UK)
 
“… timeless songs that are slowing down the world with their warm retro-sound.“
(6/7 Metal Hammer DE)

“Finnish forest folk widescreen fourth album.”

UNANIMATED to Re-Release First Three Albums!

f6040683-0a58-4240-a34b-fb95a44919d4.jpg

After the release of last year’s highly acclaimed new EP “Annihilation”, Swedish death/black metal rulers UNANIMATED will release their first three studio albums in summer 2019 via Century Media Records.

The now legendary first two albums “In the Forest of the Dreaming Dead” (1993) and “Ancient God of Evil” (1995), and their follow-up “In the Light of Darkness” (2009) are completely sold out since years and have become highly sought-after releases. “Ancient God of Evil”, justly considered one of the most outstanding and influential albums of the entire genre, has never been officially released on vinyl. 

All three albums will be released on CD, LP and digitally, and release dates will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

Support the band and buy the official and authorized versions!

UNANIMTED’s fourth studio album is planned for a release in autumn 2019.
