CALLING ALL CAPTAINS RELEASES ‘NOTHING GROWS HERE’

“’Chasing Ghosts’ has a lot of layers to its meaning, especially for the different members of the band. It encapsulates all of the self doubt and negative behaviours that go along with always looking in the rearview mirror and knowing that you’re not living in the present,” the band shares. “Smoking and drinking as a way to cope with everything because of the issues that have to be faced doesn’t get you anywhere. This song is […]

LUME SHARES “BLACK SUN” & “HARRIS” NEW B-SIDES WITH BROOKLYNVEGAN

Chicago-based rock trio, Lume, premiered two unreleased B-Sides – “Black Sun” and “Harris” – from their critically-acclaimed 2018 full-length, Wrung Out, today via BrooklynVegan. The two singles, which will be officially released February 8th, expand on the key elements that make Wrung Out such a deeply personal listen, while exemplifying the album’s diversity. “Black Sun” is disarming and tone-heavy yet remains cold and crisp, while “Harris” serves as a counterbalance to the dense opener – entirely stripped down and open resulting in one of the band’s most vulnerable songs to date.

Speaking on “Black Sun” Dan Butler (guitar / vocals) said:

“‘Black Sun’ is a song that we’ve had kicking around in various versions for quite a while. Although it […]

GIDEON RELEASE TWO NEW SONGS, “NO LOVE/NO ONE” AND “2 DEEP”

Today, Alabama hardcore outfit Gideon surprised fans with the release of a new 2 song EP, No Love/No One, via Equal Vision Records. No Love/No One marks the band’s heaviest hitting material to date, revealing a darker side both sonically and lyrically. Opener and title track “No Love/No One” serves as a punishing anti-love letter to toxic relationships boasted by tremendous guitars and a mosh-ready breakdown. “2 Deep” follows suit, building on doing what’s best for yourself while taking on a more straight-up metallic sound. The songs are just the tip of the iceberg for what’s to come from Gideon, as the band enters the studio to record a full-length due out later in the year. You can listen to […]
