The New York-based group Zero Trust shared the new music video for their track “Get It” alongside an interview with vocalist BJ Allen on Afropunk today. The track is one of the band’s dual singles released last month via Equal Vision Records in the form of a self-titled EP. “Get It” is an anthemic slow-burn track that boasts a soaring chorus led by Allen’s poignant lyrics. Zero Trust, formed as a creative outlet during the ongoing pandemic, is completed by members of Coheed and Cambria, Bulldoze, Full Scale Riot, Agents of Man, Skarhead, and more. The group of hardcore veterans collectively builds upon a hard-to-define sound, blurring the lines of metal, hardcore, and alternative rock. The band also announced a new vinyl variant for […]

To celebrate the record, the band have shared a music video for track “Misfire,” set in a dystopian dreamscape. Speaking about the track vocalist and drummer Donovan Melero states, “’Misfire’ is about feeling so detached from everyone that even while going through the motions of normal behaviors, it feels like you’re watching yourself as an outsider. We often try to validate ourselves in ways we think are necessary.” You can watch the video for “Misfire” here and purchase the record at newagefilth.com.
When Hail The Sun entered the studio to record what would become New Age Filth, they knew they were setting out to make their most collaborative and diverse album yet. […]

“When I was a kid I used to wait in anticipation for new episodes of MTV’s ‘Unplugged.’ I loved how artists would sit on stools in an intimate venue and perform their otherwise electrified songs on almost entirely acoustic instruments. At its best, ‘Unplugged’ versions of songs could outshine the ‘official’ versions,” Brett says. He reminisces on the incredible artistry and imagination of episodes featuring Nirvana, Neil Young and Jay-Z, all of whom showcased how a good song could be arranged in many ways, with different instruments, tempos, and altogether different life. When he and Josh were asked to do an acoustic tour in 2019 – the tour that led to their ultimate comeback – the duo began to strip […]

Keep up with Concrete Castles at www.facebook.com/concretecastles.
“‘Just a Friend’ is about having trust issues and making a problem out of something before it even begins,” the band shares. “It’s being skeptical about a partner and not having enough trust to let them have friends or interact with anyone if it isn’t you. Being so scared that there are other people they may think are better than you.”

The song shows a softer, yet familiar side of the band, floating through dreamy melodies before kicking into the memorable chorus driven by guitars and an emotional vocal delivery.
Speaking on the story behind the track, vocalist/drummer Donovan Melero puts it best stating: “Lyrically, this song was written to outlive the relationship that it was written about. I wanted the words to hold true, no matter what the outcome, because of how strong of an emotion we felt towards each other. The chorus sums this up. ‘Wherever you end up, know that you’ve made your mark. […]

The song is now available to stream via your preferred listening service and comes alongside an incredible new video featuring Jesse Korman of The Number 12 Looks Like You and Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan and explores the idea of “guilty pleasures.”
