GLASS HANDS Release Official Music Video for “WAITING ROOM”

Indiana metalcore band GLASS HANDS has released the Official Music Video for their single “Waiting Room.” Filmed, directed, and edited by Brian “Bone” Thorburn at Threshold Studios in Indianapolis, based on concepts from Glass Hands and Brian “Bone” Thorburn, “Waiting Room” is the debut single off of Glass Hand’s upcoming EP.

“Waiting Room is a song about watching yourself become a negative, apathetic person without the strength to do anything about it; feeling like you’re just waiting around until the end. Like anyone, each of us in the band have had our own internal battles, and we think that the feeling of numbness in depression is something a lot of people can relate to, and that’s what we wanted to do with this song. We wanted to relate.” – Glass Hands

Glass Hands is more than a name change for the former Indianapolis based metal band Infamous. Glass Hands is the striking result of a 6 year evolutionary journey that scorched the definition of the genre. Glass Hands has already created a buzz with their technical guitar prowess infusing ambient and melodic harmonies topped with powerful lyrics. High energy live performances and undeniable chemistry is guaranteed with this five piece group.

Delivering one hard‐hitting anthem after another, and driven by powerful guitars, aggressive drum beats, and poignant lyrics, this Midwestern outfit gave a taste of what was to come with the music video release of “Alone”. This visual introduction to Glass Hands unapologetically speeds ahead with a barreling riff and unshakable chant. Greeted by the tremendous response to the video, the band released their debut EP Exit Letters on August 13, 2016.

On social media giant, Facebook, the music video, “Alone”, spread at a feverish pace and reached almost 275,000 people and currently has over 110,000 views, 3,000 shares, 300 comments in the first month. Fueled by this, the EP Exit Letters hit the iTunes Metal Charts at the #32 position and remained solidly in the Top 50 for the first week!

Only a year and a half after the release of Exit Letters, Glass Hands released the explosive single entitled “Waiting Room”, acommpanied by a visually captivating music video.

The band plans to release a full‐length LP this summer, with a tour to follow.

Fire FIght Release Official Music Video for “The Ghost Inside”

Minneapolis, MN hard rock band Fire Fight has released the official music video for their single, “The Ghost Inside.” Originally premiered on HM Magazine, “The Ghost Inside” is off of their 2017 released EP Transitions.

“’The Ghost Inside’ is our favorite song to play live. It’s got it all, and in a very short amount of time, from heavy riffage down to soft vocals building into an epic chorus and back to the heavy riffing, and that reflects the story behind it: light vs. darkness, good vs evil, and the continuing battle between. For the video, we went for simplicity; there’s a ghost inside all of us. As people we can go through different stages of emotions and sometimes those emotions make us see in black and white, and while the song may be complicated, we wanted to accent that simplicity throughout in the imagery as well.”

Remember when music made you feel things you’d never felt before? When it seemed like every time you turned on the radio, you discovered a whole new world? What happened to that sense of wonder and refreshment?

Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Fire Fight seeks to breathe new life into a world muddied by generalities and jaded artistry.

Our goal is to spark that same sense of wonder and inspiration that was once the norm. Music isn’t what we do for a living, it’s what we do to live and we want to share that with every audience we encounter. Every show belongs to you just as much as it does to us, and we want to change the way you hear rock music and the way you experience it.

With driving percussion, intricate riffs, infectious hooks, and mesmerizing melodies, each song tells a story: our story, our journey. Egos and politics have their place, but everyone needs something that speaks to their heart and soul. Without heart, all art is fruitless. So bang your heads, throw up the horns, jump, dance, sing and be present. The music industry and bureaucracy have taken so much from music and from you, the fans. We’re here to give it back.

We are FIRE FIGHT!

Welcome to Jonestown Release Lyric Video for “Lazy”

Chicago pop-punk band Welcome to Jonestown has released the official lyric video for their single, “Lazy” off of their upcoming EP. Releasing digitally March 1st, Go Punk Yourself! is the second EP from the Windy City trio.

“We are extremely exicted to bring you our second EP Go Punk Yourself!, available for digital download March 1st! This time we recorded with our buddy Nick at Nook Studios in New Lenox, IL and we seriously could not be possibly more excited with the way these songs turned out. Everyone worked really hard on this and has a lot to be proud of! Please enjoy Go Punk Yourself!” – Welcome To Jonestown

Jeremy Handel: Lead Vocals, Guitar

Born in the mid 80’s in the pastures on the rural northside of Chicago, IL, Jeremy Handel has been obsessed with the pop-punk scene since the ripe old age of 14 and when he finally decided to get up off his lazy ass and learn to play the guitar for real, he remembered how much he always wanted to be in a band. Luckily for Jeremy, he recognizes all Alkaline Trio songs immediately, and when Burnard Wedderburn came over and started strumming one out, that was it and the jam was on!

Burnard Wedderburn: Drums

The “Travis Barker” to their otherwise incredibly-amazing-but-not-the-MOST-talented-band-in-the-world Blink 182, Burnard Wedderburn’s technical and unique yet familiar style of drumming leaves no musical stone unturned. Also born and raised on Chicago’s very rural northside, Burt has a ferocity on the drums which rival that of a leopard, or lion…or some such creature that tears it up when the situation calls for awesomeness.

Matt Handel: Backup Vocals, Bass

Jeremy’s brother in arms, and also in parent, Matt is the final piece of the puzzle that is Welcome to Jonestown. Matt’s clever, purposeful bass notes and natural harmonies are the glue that keep WTJ’s songs from falling apart at the seams, and without them, there’s a distinction that doesn’t go unnoticed. Fortunately for the band and their fans, they will never have to worry about what that might sound like.

A DARKER COLOR BRIGHT Releases Dark Re-Interpretation of Americana Classic “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” with Visually Unsettling Official Music Video

Dark Electronic Pop act A DARKER COLOR BRIGHT(ADCB) has taken on the iconic Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg classic “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and re-imagined it as a melancholy instrumental, made even more so with black and white imagery of human destruction and carnage. War, poverty, and nuclear terror fill the screen in frightening and heartbreaking reminders of moments in history, all of which directly reflect many issues and concerns in today’s society. Consistent with the artist’s generally foreboding tone, ADCB says of the release, “I’m just getting started.”

“Somewhere Over the Rainbow” is yet another entirely self made video by ADCB, raising the question: How much can one person, single handedly, actually do? ADCBs’ multiple singles and releases of different genres and styles, while somehow keeping an underlined tone, make it apparent that you really can’t predict which direction this project is going.

Download / Stream “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” Online:

iTunes | Amazon | Google Play | Spotify

 

A Darker Color Bright is a “Dark Pop” Mixed Media Artist, based in the Midwest United States. Otherwise referred to as ADCB, this artistic project is made up of one single individual. This one anonymous cluster of energy is solely responsible for every aspect of A Darker Color Bright. All writing, performing, instrumentation, directing, production, recording, engineering, mastering, and design.

Click HERE to Download / Stream “Dementia”

“We wrote ‘Dementia’ with the mindset that every mental battle or illness matters, no matter how big or small. Depression, anxiety, and even stress can wreak havoc on everyone’s sanity. It makes day to day life so much more difficult, and we wanted to illustrate that sort of decaying state of mind with this song. The inspiration and name for the song came from a medical help billboard our singer saw on his way home from work one day and it just really made sense to us once we finished writing the song.” – 45 To Argos

From Ashes To New Premiere “Crazy” Song and Lyric Video, Prep New Album ‘The Future’

Rock band From Ashes To New have released their single and lyric video for “Crazy,” premiering the song on SiriusXM Octane today. “Crazy” is the first single off of their upcoming LP, The Future, releasing April 20th via Better Noise Records / Eleven Seven Music.

Click HERE to Stream / Download “Crazy” Online!

“Crazy” is the first look into the sophomore album from the revamped Lancaster, PA based band consisting of Founder/ Rapper/Programmer Matt Brandyberry and Guitarist Lance Dowdle with new additions Vocalist Danny Case and Drummer Mat Madiro. The band has gone through a few changes since they ended their last tour in December 2016.

“Pretty much anything that could go wrong to try and slow down the process and throw you a curveball happened during the last year since we came off the road, but we came out on the other side. “states Matt Brandyberry “I was in a very down mind frame because of what was happening with the other members leaving and the anxiety made it difficult to write at times but ultimately I found the right people to come together and we decided we were going to write the best music we possibly could and see where that took us.”

“Crazy” is a huge anthem for the people feeling caught in the middle of a situation and confused by it all.

“Crazy is, at its core, a song about someone or something driving you absolutely out of your mind and feeling unable to walk away from it. I feel like everyone at one point or another experiences that in their lives” states Danny ”For me personally, I dated someone for a very short period of time and it felt like everything I said and did was wrong. I honestly thought I was losing my mind because I knew it was a bad situation, but I just felt like I couldn’t walk away. I think having that life experience really helped when we sat down and wrote the lyrics”

“Crazy” was recorded at Atrium Audio with producers Grant McFarland and Carson Slovak (August Burns Red) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (KornLamb Of God)
