BE WELL (BRIAN MCTERNAN + MEMBERS OF BANE, DARKEST HOUR, FAIRWEATHER) SIGNS TO EQUAL VISION RECORDS, RELEASES TWO SONGS

Today, several of the most respected talents from the world of hardcore have come together for a new project entitled, Be Well.

NOVA CHARISMA RELEASE NEW SONG/VIDEO “GEMINI”, ANNOUNCE NEW RELEASE FOR DEC. 6

Today, progressive duo Nova Charisma have shared “Gemini” – the lead single from their upcoming release Exposition II, out December 6th on Equal Vision Records. “Gemini” showcases a lush sonic soundscape incorporating spacey electronic elements with bursting guitars and singer Donovan Melero’s signature vocal-style. Lyrically, the song is about falling back in love with someone that you know you shouldn’t and was heavily inspired by The Offspring’s 1992 classic “Session”. The accompanying visual for the track, directed by Raul Gonzo (IDKHOW, PVRIS), explores the notion of creating an alternate reality through the use of illusions propelled by bold color and geometric shapes.
