BostonBent Knee, the Boston-based band Consequence of Sound said are “truly the definition of experimentalism,” release the graphically-rich video for “Bone Rage”, from the band’s forthcoming album, You Know What They Mean (Oct. 11, InsideOutMusic). Watch “Bone RageHERE.

“’Bone Rage’ is a song that makes concert halls shake and expectations collapse,” explains guitar player Ben Levin, who also directed the video. “It seemed fitting to make its video full of destruction and solid objects taking on unanticipated forms. The visuals pull you through like you’re handcuffed to a firetruck, but I think you’ll be grateful for the workout when it’s over.”

Bent Knee previously released a video for “Hold Me In”, which Brooklyn Vegan said of: “Singer Courtney Swain is a true powerhouse —she can belt it like Whitney Houston while staying as eccentric as Kate Bush — and she and the rest of the band provide ‘Hold Me In’ with an atmospheric, constantly shapeshifting backdrop that could fit in nicely next to stuff like Radiohead or Porcupine Tree.” Watch “Hold Me In” HERE.

The “Bone Rage” video follows news that the band will be joining Thank you Scientist for a five-week North American tour this Fall (begins Nov. 7).

Progressive metal’s sensational shred quartet Sifting have revealed a new music video and single for the song “Stop Calling Me Liberty.” The video was directed by Zach Perez at Astral Media. Watch it HERE.

“‘Stop Calling Me Liberty‘ is a song we wrote about The Statue of Liberty.” states front man Eduardo Osuna Gil. “Every day our country is pushed further apart, divided by the partisan politics and nothing gets done for the people. I often think about the Statue of Liberty and how she is a magnificent symbol of liberty and unification watching over our country from Liberty Island. If she could speak to us today, what would she say? I don’t really think she would be pleased. I think she’d be pretty damn pissed off.”

Sifting will release The Infinite Loop on September 27, 2019. The album is a masterpiece of progressive metal featuring 70 minutes of mind-blowing Jedi-like musicianship. It was produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence, Poison the Well), mixed by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, The Contortionist), and features a special guest performance by Derek Sherinian (Sons of Apollo, Dream Theater).

The band previously revealed a music video from the album for the first single “A Critical Affair,” which surpassed 100,000 views on YouTube in just 2 weeks. “A Critical Affair” was directed by Alejandro Fumero Gil. Watch it HERE.

Pre-order the album on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, or CD and stream the singles via Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and more HERE.

Sifting Tour Dates:

Industrial Pop Outfit AESTHETIC PERFECTION Reveals Eccentric Music Video for “Gods & Gold”, Featuring Guitars by Richard Z. Kruspe of RAMMSTEIN

Los Angeles-based producer Daniel Graves has been turning heads with his addictive industrial pop project, Aesthetic Perfection, for nearly two decades. Since forming in 2000, Graves has released five full-length albums, numerous singles and music videos, all the while reinventing what it means to be a dark electro artist. Blending industrial, pop, goth, and everything in between, Aesthetic Perfection defies definitions in a world that demands them.

Today marks the release of the visually stunning and eccentric new music video for “Gods & Gold“, an instantly gripping industrial pop crossover anthem with an unforgettable hook that listeners will be humming for days. The track features scorching guitars by the inimitable Richard Z. Kruspe of Rammstein, who adds an extra aggressive punch to the tune. Watch the deliciously avant garde video now via Alternative Press HERE.

Aesthetic Perfection mastermind Daniel Graves says about “Gods & Gold“:Gods & Gold was a very challenging song for us to work on. I really wanted to push the envelope here and try something new. We’d been tinkering with it for quite some time and it was just coming up short. Once our friend Richard Kruspe expressed interest in playing on the record, I instantly knew he was the missing puzzle piece. I didn’t even realize I’d had his playing style and vibe in mind when I was writing the track until that very second. Then BOOM, just like magic it all came together. It instantly became our favorite song and obvious choice for the first track on the album. Of course, we’re all enormous Rammstein fans and honored to finally work with Richard in a professional capacity.”

Aesthetic Perfection Into The Black

Gods & Gold” is cut from Aesthetic Perfection‘s fifth and latest studio album, Into The Black, which hit stores everywhere on March 29 via Close to Human Music. Featuring an all-star cast of collaborators such as the aforementioned Richard Z. Kruspe, Jinxx of Black Veil Brides, Mick Kenney of Anaal Nathrakh and Krischan Wesenberg of Rotersand, Into The Black is the most mature Aesthetic Perfection album to date. Fans can order Into The Black and “Gods & Gold” now via Apple Music, Amazon and Bandcamp. Physical editions and merch are available HERE, and the album can be streamed via Spotify.

Into The Black features acclaimed drummer Joe Letz, recognized for his work with artists such as Emigrate (also featuring Richard Z. Kruspe), Combichrist, Wednesday 13, Genitorturers and several other top heavy music artists.

Dark and gritty, yet undeniably catchy and melodic, Into The Black builds upon the band’s past while solidly keeping its eyes focused on the future. From the haunting electronic melodies of “Supernatural” to the twangy guitars of “Echoes“, from the punch-to-the-gut beat of “No Boys Allowed” to the soaring highs of “Mourning Doves“, Daniel Graves takes the transgressive art form known as industrial pop to the next level.

Aesthetic Perfection will head out on a full North American headline tour beginning September 6, 2019 in San Diego, CA. The tour will feature support artist Empathy Test and will visit over a month’s-worth of cities, coming to a close in Los Angeles, CA on October 19.

Los Angeles, CA — Soulful pop singer-songwriter, Spencer Sutherland, has released the official music video for his single, “Wallpaper.” The new offering just premiered exclusively on Idolator and can be viewed HERE.

“The ‘Wallpaper’ music video is really saying ‘whatever’ to all the stress in life,” says Spencer. “The video is basically showing how easily your brain can play tricks on you, and then there’s a little twist at the end. I love poking fun at ‘serious’ things because life is not that serious!”

Wallpaper” appears on Spencer’s debut EP, NONE of this has been about you, which was released last month via BMG. The five-track effort is an introspective journey that spotlights his signature tone and falsetto, reminiscent of the 60s with stripped-down 80s-inspired production. Listeners can hear traces of his major influences on the record, ranging from Marvin Gaye and Bruno Mars, to Prince, Elvis, and The Temptations. Spencer’s honest and relatable approach to lyrics, in tandem with his powerful live performances, culminate in what is being lauded as a fresh new sound in pop.

NONE of this has been about you Track Listing:

1. Sweater
2. Freaking Out
3. NONE of this has been about you
4. Wallpaper
5. It May Sound Strange

Spencer kicked off 2019 with a bang and is an artist on the rise, to say the least. After inking his first major record deal, he unveiled his infectious lead single, “Sweater,” which scored impressive Apple Music playlisting including Breaking Pop (Global), Best of The Week (#2 spot), Hot Tracks (#1 Pop spot), Top Songs–Pop, and Beats of the Week. The smooth and lush title track from his debut EP also landed on Apple’s The A-List: Pop (Global), Pure Pop 50, and Breaking Pop (Global). Additionally, Spencer racked up his first New Music Friday playlisting on Spotify with “Freaking Out,” his vulnerable and vibrant latest song.

Spencer played his first ever sold out headline shows earlier this year in New York City and Cincinnati and is currently on the road supporting Jack & Jack on a massive tour across North America. The trek stops in Orlando this evening and hits major cities including Atlanta, New York, Boston, Toronto, Chicago, and more.

I’m so excited to be on tour with Jack & Jack,” says Spencer. I have so much respect for them, and the shows have been crazy. 2019 is turning out to be an amazing year!

Omaha, NE based, alternative rock group, The Party After,
have released a debut single, “Philophobic” on Valentine’s Day. They quickly teamed up with director/producer David M. Weiss and producer Angela Root with D.M.Weiss Productions to pair with the song a music video that would inspire humor through creative visual themes and a song that digs deep into the unpleasant sides of attraction.

The Party After Philophobic Video Still

This new tune, mixed and mastered by Grammy-nominee Tom Ware at Warehouse Productions, is a story of the darker side of love and of the negative emotions that can come attached to it. The video revolves around a newly formed relationship between the mythological beast known as Sasquatch and a beautiful, blonde woman (Gina Comparetto) who seems poised to turn this hairy wonder into her ideal man. Watch the video HERE.

The power trio was formed initially as a four-piece in 2011 under a different name, but after tumultuous events on the road to stardom, the remaining three members have rebranded and are getting ready to hit the ground running yet again. Along with a new batch of hard-hitting, catchy tunes, the group has brought their live show to an energetic level that contagiously keeps the party rocking. The Party After has plans to continue releasing more singles, and possibly more video content, before the end of the year. If they come near you, don’t miss the chance to see this party in action!

Los Angeles, CA – BMG is excited to welcome Jocelyn to the recorded music family! The Omaha-based singer/songwriter unveiled her debut single, “Speak Up,” last week, which is available to stream/download HERE. The official music video is also out today and can be viewed HERE.

“You may not know Jocelyn yet, but you will.” – Omaha World-Herald

The uplifting and infectious track was co-written in Los Angeles with producer/composer, Denny White, (The Fray, Tiësto) and chronicles a personal bullying experience she endured and how she worked to overcome it. With its righteous chorus, catchy guitar work, driving bass, and bombastic beat, listeners can hear traces of her major influences – from Shawn Mendes and Gabrielle Aplin, to Ben Howard and Ed Sheeran.

“ ‘Speak Up’ is about turning negativity into positive energy instead of letting the bullies drag you down,” says Jocelyn. “It’s about realizing that you are your own individual, so speak up and live by example.”

Jocelyn’s powerful voice, mesmerizing stage presence, rhythmic guitar playing, and tireless work ethic puts the heart into Heartland, utilizing her natural talent and mature perspective to connect with listeners no matter what venue she plays. Her career began to take off when a viral video for her original song, “Just Like Everybody Else,” went viral and brought her worldwide attention. Soon she was performing on TV for Steve Harvey’s Showcase” at the world-famous Apollo Theater and for Darius Rucker on an episode of “Celebrity Undercover Boss,” in addition to garnering notice from media in her hometown. She’s also become a staple in her local music scene, recently winning Best Pop Artist and Artist of the Year at the Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards.

“Soulful yet spirited acoustic pop” – The Reader

Jocelyn is currently working on her first full-length album and will be releasing more music throughout the year. In the meantime, stay connected with her on her socials below.

“ ‘A Million Stars’ isn’t only about appreciating the person you’re with or the location you’re in, it’s about being free of the world’s distractions and valuing the little details that make a memory unique. I believe we’re defined by our reactions to these moments,” says Josh. “This video represents the double-edged sword of sharing perfect memories, but being thrust into a situation where cherishing them might not ever be possible. It’s a reality anyone faces when you’re away from loved ones, friends or even a familiar place.”

About Mantar

Hailing from Northern Germany, MANTAR have achieved more in five years than most bands twice their age and size. The product of a twenty-year friendship between guitarist/vocalist Hanno Klaenhardt and drummer Erinc Sakarya, theirs is a success story born entirely of one thing: hard work, with three albums, an EP and a live release already to their name. Releasing their 2014 Svart Records debut Death By Burning, an uncompromising clash of stripped-back punk attitude and metal intensity to instant critical acclaim, the band toured relentlessly, gracing stages the world over, including the hallowed likes of Roadburn (NL), Wacken Open Air (D) and Maryland Deathfest (US). They used 2016’s Ode To The Flame, their Nuclear Blast Records debut, to further build upon their incendiary live reputation, conquering not only Europe and the US, but Russia, Japan and South Africa.
The Modern Art Of Setting Ablaze is a title in-keeping with MANTAR‘s symbolic obsession with fire on albums previous; this time disavowing mankind’s tendency to blindly follow those that would lead us into oblivion. This isn’t necessarily a political statement; more a morbid fascination with current smoldering tensions that threaten to set the minds of the masses on fire.
MANTAR recently announced the first leg of their European tour for November/December 2018 – see below for all dates:
