BETRAYING THE MARTYRS has been forced to cancel the rest of their North American Summer “Rapture” tour, including last night’s show in Orangevale, CA, after being involved in a serious auto incident following their show in Los Angeles. 

All crew and band members are safe.

The incident happened around 4 a.m. when the trailer portion of the band’s Mercedes Sprinter van caught fire. All band and crew members were able to safely to exit the vehicle with no major injuries. Tragically, all of the band’s equipment was lost in the blaze.

Singer Aaron Matts commented on the scene, “We’re all shaken by what has happened this morning. We’re well but very heartbroken that all we have worked hard to accumulate over the years, both in musical equipment and personal belongings, has been lost in a matter of minutes. I’m grateful that we have our health, each other and were able to walk away with the clothes on our backs. We are extremely sorry to have missed another opportunity to play for those that were looking forward to see us. We’ll bounce back and we’ll see you soon. Thank you.” 

Guitarist Baptiste Vigier also added: “This is the most tragic event that has ever happened in our band’s career, and in my entire life. Earlier this morning, I was awakened by our driver screaming and urging us all to get out of the vehicle. Although I’m incredibly thankful to still be alive and tell this story, I lost all my gear and personal belongings. We feel incredibly powerless and in shock.” 

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the BETRAYING THE MARTYRS 
replace the items lost in the fire.

Visit GoFundMe to donate. 

ANY donation will be incredibly helpful to all of us and will go directly towards rebuilding our band, to help us get back home and ultimately to keep doing what we love, which is creating music and sharing it with our fans,” the band says. “If you’ve ever had the chance to catch BTM live, if you know the band or simply follow what we do, if you’ve shared the stage with us, if you’ve ever listened to or streamed our music, we’re asking for your help.” 

The band also adds, “There is absolutely no way we could thank enough, our driver and new best friend Daniel Johnson. This man literally ran into the flames in an attempt to salvage our belongings and to ensure our safety and well-being. Daniel acted out of pure courage and professionalism in order for the band and crew to be safe and at a lower risk of injury. Whatever we have left after this, we owe it to you Daniel. A part of potential funds raised will be going to Daniel to compensate for his courage and for his belongings lost.

Band manager Chris Adler of Kinsugi Management
posted the following video of the fire:

Below is a list of items that were lost:

• Splitter

• In Ears Monitors System x 4

• Most of their Merchandising

• 1 Furman power conditioner

• 4 keyboards

• Shock mount racks units

• 1 Helix
• AxeFX

• 6 guitar cases

• All personal belongings and suitcases

• A full Midas Mixing Desk and its case

• A full drum kit

• The whole brand new trailer

The tour will continue with Within Destruction and Sentinels. “We encourage you to come support our tour brothers that we must unfortunately leave,” says the band. “Show them some love too.

San Jose, CA – Covet, the talented Bay Area trio of Yvette Young, David Adamiak and Forrest Rice, released a three song EP simply titled Acoustics, today via Triple Crown Records HERE.

“We wanted to create some mellower, more laid back versions of some songs on Effloresce, and also breathe new life into them with new accompaniments such as piano, violin, and even light vocals,” explained Young. “’We hope that with the new accompaniments, tempos and additional layers, ‘Glimmer’ and ‘Shibuya’ will feel entirely different and take people someplace new.”

Torche Stream “Admission” Via Billboard; North American Tour Begins July 8

Miami, FL – Torche reveal a third track “Admission” (July 12, Relapse Records), debuting the album’s title track via Billboard HERE.

“This is a song where the music and the lyrics are a perfect match,” explains guitar player Jon Nunez in the accompanying article. “It’s as if they were meant to go together. What I was going through at the time really came through in the song, and the music I gave Steve definitely brought out some rather painful emotions for him [regarding] losing loved ones and the process you go through after. You could even hear a quiver in Steve’s voice, and it was like, ‘Wow, this is something we haven’t done before.’ Steve tends to be really secretive with his lyrics. He needed a little bit of a push, but I think deep down inside he wanted to get this off his chest.”

The band has given two previous previews of music from the 11-song album with streams of the songs “Slide” and “Times Missing”. The trio of tracks are available as instant downloads with digital pre-orders. Admission is available in various formats (CD/LP/CS/Digital) with several limited edition vinyl versions already sold out. More information can be found via Relapse’s webstore. Admission’s cover art was created by Richard Vergez, a Cuban-American visual artist, whose work has been shown at No Romance Galleries (TriBeCa), Urban Arts Society (Chicago) and Kids of Dada (London).

Torche released their fourth album, and Relapse Records’ debut, Restarter in 2015. The collection found the band on most year-end best of lists with Entertainment Weekly describing the album as “gloriously fuzzy, sludgy, hard-hitting” and calling the band members “four of loud rock’s most adroit genre-benders.” The Washington Post called Restarterotherworldly” and the Chicago Tribune saying “Torche’s music connects muscle, songcraft and drive in a way that few bands of recent vintage can match.

Infinity Shred Debut “Long May You Run” Video Via Heavy Blog Is Heavy

New York City – Infinity Shred, the NYC-based trio who recently announced the Aug. 23 release of Forever, A Fast Life, debut a video for the song “Long May You Run” via Heavy Blog Is Heavy HERE.

“”Historically, Infinity Shred music videos have been an excuse to make cheeky short films with a sci-fi bent,” explains programmer Damon Hardjowirogo. “With the art direction for our new album, Forever, A Fast Life, leaning more personal than we had been willing to in the past we thought what better time than now to finally do a performance based video that would give us a chance to show off our new lights we built for our tour with Astronoid.

Our art directors, Dean Marcial and Esther Kim decided to shoot this video entirely on a cellphone and we couldn’t be happier with the results​.”​​​

Upon last week’s news of the band’s 3DOT Recordings’ debut and “Long May You Run” song stream, MetalSucks said: “The song showcases the elements that have drawn the instrumental outfit such high praise over the past several years, combining dreamy, layered, post-rock soundscapes and retro analogue synth textures with a modern progressive metal backbone.”

Infinity Shred formed in 2012, releasing their debut full-length, Sanctuary, the following year with a sophomore release, Long Distance, arriving in the fall of 2016. Drummer Clara Warnaar joined Damon and guitar player Nathan Ritholz just prior to the release of Long Distance, making Forever, A Fast Life the first release to include input from the full trio. Clara incorporated her classical background, assembling a small orchestra to accompany the three-piece, performing on the album opener “Brutal Luxury,” interlude “Harsh Language” and “What’s Worth Hiding?

Album pre-orders, which include an instant download of “Long May You Run,” are available now via the 3DOT webstore HERE.

Infinity Shred Tour Dates (all dates with Astronoid):

June 20 Buffalo, NY Mohawk Place
June 21 Lakewood, OH The Symposium
June 22 Chicago, IL Reggies
June 23 Pontiac, MI The Crofoot
June 25 Baltimore, MD Metro Gallery
June 23 Philadelphia, PA The Fillmore Philadelphia

Simple Creatures Release New Track “Special”

Los Angeles, CA — Simple Creatures, comprised of long-time friends Mark Hoppus (blink-182) and Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low), release a new track, “Special” today. The first offering from EP2 (due out later this year) was produced by Zakk Cervini, and is available to download HERE.

The band will make their highly anticipated festival debut this Saturday, headlining the “Avalanche” stage at Download Festival in the U.K. after playing a few intimate club shows earlier this year in a few select cities across the U.S. and in London.

Mark and Alex released their debut EP, Strange Love, in March.

You can listen to the EP HERE.

About Simple Creatures

Simple Creatures evolved from a long-standing friendship and a musical kinship. Hoppus and Gaskarth took a beat from their individual bands to have some fun in the studio, and came away with a new band with a new sound.

“On paper, this collaboration between two of pop-punk’s most recognizable and commercially powerful songwriters should have proved entirely predictable – a crush of pit-friendly anthems and surging riffola. Except their latest out is anything but. The first single, ‘Drug’… an explosive rush of heavy-hearted pop that clatters and crackles with programmed drum breaks, scuzzy guitars and skittering melodies, with both singers sharing vocal duties,” wrote Kerrang!

Mighty warriors of the galaxy!

The legends around Angus McFife XIII just started their world tour in the US, which will lead them through the whole galaxy until February 2020. 

Watch the video for “Masters of the Galaxy” HERE:

The epic fight of crown prince Angus McFife against evil continues…

At the end of the second GLORYHAMMER album, Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards, Planet Earth had been destroyed by the Hootsman, with an explosion so powerful it ripped a hole in the very fabric of spacetime. And yet, Zargothrax was still not defeated, for he managed to use his last shreds of power to escape through the dimensional rift. Vowing to defeat the evil sorcerer, Angus McFife XIII followed him into the portal, with no idea where it might lead… 

The galaxy waits in fear for the return of Angus McFife XIII, who fought the greatest battle the galaxy has ever heard of, against the evil sorcerer Zargothrax. All hope of the Kingdom of Fife lies in the strong arms and the infinite wisdom of their young prince. 

GLORYHAMMER‘s new album Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex tells us the whole story of the most gigantic battle of all time.

About GLORYHAMMER

GLORYHAMMER were founded by Alestorm frontman Christopher Bowes in 2009, who spent the next years gathering an international line-up that suited his idea to create a band based conceptually on the fantasy genre and musically fitting generally into the power metal mold. Both aims were achieved stunningly and their debut album, Tales from the Kingdom of Fife released by Napalm Records in 2013 immediately garnered the band high critical acclaim from critics and fans alike. GLORYHAMMER were able to top this success with their second full-length Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards (2015) and have continued to tour in front of ever growing audiences, performed at all major metal festivals, and have by now been nominated twice by German Metal Hammer as best band in the category “Up & Coming” at the Metal Hammer Awards.

GLORYHAMMER Lineup:

Angus McFife XIII, Crown Prince of Fife – Vocals
Ser Proletius, Grand Master of the Deathknights of Crail – Guitars
The Hootsman, Astral Demigod of Unst – Bass

French deathcore heavyweights Betraying The Martyrs will return to American shores this summer for their first-ever headline tour of North America. The “Summer Rapture Tour 2019,” also featuring support from Entheos, Within Destruction, Sentinels and Defying Decay, will kick off on June 28 in Stanhope, N.J.

A Preview of What’s to Come On the “Summer Rapture Tour

We are beyond excited to cover US soil on our first full US headlining tour,” says vocalist Aaron Matts. “To be able to play a full energetic set to an audience that has been with us since day one is an absolute honor for us! Along with a stacked line-up of sick bands, we’re all stoked to get on the road! Come to a show and lose yourselves with us all, see you all in the pit!”

The band recently also announced a new partnership with Chris Adler‘s management company, Kintsugi Management and is working on a new album. Betraying The Martyrs will play new songs from the upcoming album for the very first time on this tour.

Kintsugi is proud to be working with Betraying The Martyrs,” Adler says. “I’m honestly excited to be working with a group of friends with a united vision. Betraying The Martyrs is doing something very special. It’s labeled metalcore because it’s easy to put every band in a box, but in this case, that is a mistake. They have taken time to study and have salvaged and fine-tuned all that I love in metal music. It’s an exciting time for the band. We believe in the guys and there’s an incredible new album soon to drop. The band continues to grow a dedicated, international fan base via their hard work, vision and brutally contagious music. The new Betraying The Martyrs album is going to change the game. I’m sincerely thrilled to be involved with a group of people that focus and deliver.”

Matts adds, “We are beyond excited to announce our collaboration with the legendary Chris Adler and Kintsugi Management. To be on board the same ship as Chris and his incredible team has breathed new life into what we do. Their backing support goes beyond anything we have known previously. It’s truly an honor. With our next release in the barrel and ready to be fired into the world, we could not be any more prepared for the road ahead. We announce our signature to Kintsugi with great pride.”

The Paris-based band’s last album, The Resilient, was released via Sumerian Records in 2017 and showcased a unique songwriting dynamic unrivalled within their genre. Followed by worldwide touring in support of the record, Betraying The Martyrs cemented their position as the European Kings of 21st Century Metal.

Baroness’ highly-anticipated album, Gold & Grey, is streaming now via NPR HERE.

The 17-track release which arrives this Friday is described by NPR as “…Baroness has redigested every sound of the band’s career thus far and synthesized it into something greater. Gold & Grey is the sound of a band becoming a universe unto itself.” Mojo dubbed the album “an epic beast,” Stereogum referred to it as “anthemic” and MetalSucks said the collection “perfectly encapsulates how Baroness excel at reaching shining peaks and descending into gloomy valleys.” Baroness have recently been featured on the covers of Decibel Magazine, Kerrang! and Loud!, while Revolver will debut a series of collectible covers later this month.

“This is the most clear representation of the artistic vision I have for the band that we’ve ever done,” explains singer/guitar player John Baizley. “Where Purple was me lyrically trying to work out how to adjust to a new normal, I think Gold & Grey is a more grown-up and more subtle collection of words that reflect how I am trying to deal with the longer term effects of having experienced so many terrible things. I choose to use the band as a place where I can take all of this stress, pain, anxiety, all these realities, and make them something good.”

Baroness is in the midst of a tour of Northeastern U.S. independent record stores, performing acoustically this evening at Philadelphia’s Creep Records, with a full band performance slated for Brooklyn’s Rough Trade on release date. A South American tour is slated for later this month, followed by both North American and European treks.
