Last month, the Florida band has announced its fifth album STIGMA, which arrives digitally on June 21 via Fearless Records, while the physical version will land in stores on September 6. Pre-order it here.

Today, the band has shared “TOMBSTONE.” Listen here.

“Metal riffs meet country western tropes in our new track ‘TOMBSTONE,'” the band explains. “A final showdown with an enemy.  One fight. Two dogs unleashed.”

From its ominous, tension-building opening seconds through the deadly breakdowns, Wage War go hard on “TOMBSTONE.” It’s got vocals that sound like screamer Briton Bond gargled with a razor blade cocktail, thick and groovy riffs that’’ll have you nodding your head, and battering ram percussion. “TOMBSTONE” finds Wage War, unleashing a hellacious anthem that brings the heavy artillery from start to stomp to finish.

STIGMA TRACK LISTING:
“THE SHOW’S ABOUT TO START”
“SELF SACRIFICE”
“MAGNETIC”
“NAIL5”
“BLUR”
“TOMBSTONE”

“HELLBENT”
“IN MY BLOOD”
“IS THIS HOW IT ENDS?”

ABOUT WAGE WAR:
Traveling a constant forward trajectory at lightspeed, Wage War not only push their own sound forward, but they also propel heavy music into new territory. The Florida quintethave always tempered a pummeling metallic onslaught with unshakable melodies. A near-decade grind naturally brought Wage War to this point. They have unleashed a string of fan favorite albums, including Blueprints [2015], Deadweight [2017], Pressure [2019], and Manic [2021]. Beyond looks from SPINModern DrummerAmerican SongwriterRevolverGuitar World, and more, KERRANG! hailed the latter as “their greatest album yet,” and DORK raved, “It’s an embracing of being metalheads, popheads and just fans of good songs. On more than one occasion, there’s an earworm poking its head up through the dirt.” They also put up numbers, tallying hundreds of millions of streams boosted by the likes of “Stitch,” “Low,” “Manic,” and “Circle The Drain.” On their fifth full-length offering STIGMA [Fearless Records], Wage War outfit their signature style with industrial grit and electronic sheen, leveling up into the future in the process with singles such as “MAGNETIC” and “NAIL5.”

August Burns Red Announce “Spring Fling” 2024 Tour Dates

AUGUST BURNS RED ANNOUNCE “SPRING FLING” 2024 TOUR

Grammy-nominated, Lancaster five-piece AUGUST BURNS RED — JB Brubaker [lead guitar], Brent Rambler [rhythm guitar], Matt Greiner [drums], Jake Luhrs [vocals], and Dustin Davidson [bass] — will embark on a short but sweet tour in May, dubbed “Spring Fling 2024.” Fuming Mouth will support. Get tickets here.

The band will also appear at Welcome to Rockville and Sonic Temple. All dates are below.

“We can’t wait to hit the road with our new pals in Fuming Mouth for a handful of shows in May,” the band says. “It will be great to get back to some cities we haven’t played in years, and to play a few killer festivals along the way. See ya this Spring!”

AUGUST BURNS RED ON TOUR:
WITH FUMING MOUTH:
5/9 — Daytona Beach, FL — Welcome to Rockville Festival*
5/10 — Birmingham, AL — Iron City
5/11 — Dothan, AL — The Plant
5/13 — Columbia, SC — The Senate
5/14 — Lexington, KY — Manchester Music Hall
5/15 — Chattanooga, TN — The Signal
5/16 — Columbus, OH — Sonic Temple Festival*
*Festival Dates
ABOUT AUGUST BURNS RED:
August Burns Red is likely the only metal act ever described as “thrillingly empathetic” (Kerrang!). It’s a testament to the ferocious band’s ability to recognize and connect with the mixture of brokenness and hope found in their audience and within themselves. A hard-working collective with a shockingly stable lineup for the vast majority of their career, August Burns Red pour every ounce of themselves into their music. Atmospheric, riff-laden, aggressive bursts of controlled chaos, filled with shifting time signatures and tempos, deliver confessional, self-reflective, and authentic emotion.

Tour stops with Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, and Bring Me the Horizon; several major international hard rock festivals (Rock Am Ring, Download, and Aftershock, to name a few); and the Vans Warped Tour are among the destinations around the world to witness ABR’s live prowess. Massive headlining treks celebrating 10-year anniversaries for Constellations and Leveler demonstrated the enduring relevance of the band’s catalog, nearly 20 years into ABR’s storied career. 2020’s Guardians debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hard Music, Rock Albums, and Vinyl Albums charts.

Revolver, who put the band on their cover the same year, observed August Burns Red “embrace the pain so well.” It’s a truth never more evident than on Death Below, their stunning ninth studio album. Recorded with longtime producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland, Death Below encompasses all of the pissed-off strength of the band’s past without sacrificing an ounce of catchy, melodic might. Death Below boasts guest appearances from ABR allies Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage), Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath), Jason Richardson (All That Remains), and JT Cavey (ERRA). “It’s getting difficult for the members of August Burns Red to keep one-upping themselves,” marveled Billboard shortly before Guardians arrived. With Death Below, they emerge victorious again.

SiriusXM was an early supporter with Octane breaking the band and having the world premiere of almost every single they put out. Over the years, I Prevail has continued to dominate Octane’s airwaves with the number one Big Uns Song Of The Year in 2019, exclusive performances for Octane Unleaded and Octane’s Home Invasion Festival, and multiple guest DJs and weekend takeovers.

The band also alternately mixes screamed vocals that sound as though they crawled from the depths of hell with soaring, emotional vocals and heartfelt, intimate lyrics that go so deep, they hit marrow. The end result is an album that resonates with the listener in the most personal way. Rising to an arena level and receiving two Grammy nominations — Best Rock Album for Trauma and Best Metal Performance for crushing lead single “Bow Down” — I Prevail proved that they were built to last. To date, they’ve racked up more than 4.1 billion global streams, are approaching 700 million YouTube views, and saw both “Hurricane” and “Bad Things” singles top Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart in 2020 and 2022 respectively.

I Prevail have affirmed their position among the genre’s elite.

SLEEP TOKEN ANNOUNCE RED ROCKS AMPHITHEATRE PERFORMANCE SET FOR MAY 12, 2024

RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL PERFORMANCE SET FOR MAY 22 SOLD OUT IN 10 MINUTES

Come May 12, we shall gather in Worship at the esteemed Red Rocks Amphitheatre for an exclusive Sleep Token performance.

Those wishing to attend may register their interest at www.teethofgod.com to obtain their unique access code in preparation for the exclusive pre-sale window, which is set for Thursday, December 13 at 10am local time.

The regular on-sale is set for Friday, December 11 at 10am local time at this location.

Sleep Token released their third studio album, Take Me Back To Eden, via Spinefarm. Listen here.

The artist also enjoyed a completely sold-out North American tour this past fall.

Last week, the band announced a special performance at the iconic Radio City Music Hall in NYC, set for May 22. The show sold out in 10 minutes.

A completely sold-out show at the famed OVO Wembley Arena is set for December 16.

Additionally, Revolver is celebrating Sleep Token as its Artist of the Year with a special collector’s edition. Get it here.

2023 has been the year of Sleep Token.

Available album tracks, “Chokehold,” “The Summoning,” “Aqua Regia,” “Granite,” and “Vore” have collectively amassed over 85 million streams, whilst standout single “The Summoning” has generated some 38.8 million streams alone, causing the track to trend on Twitter and take the #1 song spot on a host of international Spotify viral charts, as well as being selected as a “YouTube Trending Artist On The Rise,” featuring on YouTube’s homepage, viewed by millions of people every day.

The unprecedented accolades keep rolling in, between the fact that ST has never played a headline show in the UK that didn’t sell out, “Aqua Regia” picking up consistent airplay on the Radio One “Future Sounds” show hosted by Clara Amfo, plus huge pop star Demi Lovato sharing Sleep Token’s music with her 153 million Instagram followers, Sleep Token consistently smash boundaries that they refused to acknowledge in the first place.

And even though Sleep Token notoriously do not speak to the press (out of necessity, not ego or gimmick), media can’t help but write about the phenomenon, reporting on the band’s every move; NME note, “Sleep Token offer their fans an entire world to immerse themselves in if they so wish. It’s a place of escapism, and the foundation of a huge fan community that’s dedicated to studying the band’s creativity. While they have the same fervor as any other fandom, there’s still a notable difference.” Elsewhere, Metal Hammer called them “the most exciting band in metal right now.”

New Model Army Announce New Album “Unbroken” Plus Share “First Summer After

STREAM “FIRST SUMMER AFTER”WATCH “FIRST SUMMER AFTER” VIDEO

NEW MODEL ARMY ANNOUNCE NEW STUDIO ALBUM UNBROKEN OUT JANUARY 26

BAND SHARES VIDEO FOR “FIRST SUMMER AFTER” — WATCH

The brand new studio album Unbroken, releasing on January 26 on earMUSIC, is the modern face of New Model Army, bringing together both their old school energy and their contemporary sophistication to create one of the finest albums of their long career. It was written and recorded over quite a long period of time, with the process interrupted by both the delayed 40th Anniversary shows and the recent Sinfonia live orchestral project.

Pre-order it here.

Today, the band has shared “First Summer After.” Watch the video here.

It is a classic New Model Army road trip song, full of twists, turns, and adventures, and the music video was filmed and put together by regular collaborator Tom Harding.

“We were writing and recording ideas in our own studio from mid-2021 and had already decided early on that our number one choice to mix it would be the legendary Tchad Blake. The album sounds like us, but different again, and it has been beautifully mixed – full-on, dynamic, and musical,” the band says.

It’s a classic New Model Army album — full of guitars but with the emphasis on the rhythmic power of bass and drums which characterizes all the band’s work, with Unbroken, the band continue to push the boundaries of their signature sound while staying true to their heart. The subjects and moods are variable, creating a diverse collection of tracks which touch on topics ranging from social and political commentary to deeply personal reflections.

“Not much hits me as genuine these days, but New Model Army hits it for me. Wonderfully recorded and produced by themselves, mixing this album felt like a gift. Here’s hoping lots of people feel the same way about listening to it,” states Tchad Blake.

Unbroken will be released January 26 via earMUSIC as CD Hardcover Mediabook, Heavyweight Black LP Gatefold, Ltd. Heavyweight Red LP Gatefold and on Digital.

FORMATS:
CD Hardcover Mediabook /Black LP Gatefold / Ltd. Red LP Gatefold / Digital

UNBROKEN TRACKLIST:
“First Summer After”
“Language”
“Reload”
“I Did Nothing Wrong”
“Cold Wind”
“Coming Or Going”
“If I Am Still Me”

“For Road, I wanted the band to be involved in the foundation of all the songs,” says Alice. “I only see these guys when we’re on the road. So, I wanted them to be as tight as they are for the show but on all new material. When you have a band this good, I believe in showing it off, and this is my way of doing so.”

Peter Tägtgren comments, “We wrote this song together, me and my son Sebastian. He wrote all the music and I did the lyrics. And it turned out great. We are very proud of this song.

ABOUT PAIN:

PAIN is an industrial metal project created by Peter Tägtgren, a Swedish musician, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. If you want to hear this story from him, it would be short and straight to the point: “PAIN was just me f*cking around in the studio, and it grew into becoming a band.”

Started as a one-man project with all the vocals, instruments parts, and production made by one person… Well, it still is, but not only. It also became a prominent touring group that today consists of, apart from Peter, his son Sebastian Tägtgren (drums), Jonathan Olsson (bass), and Sebastian Svalland (guitar).

Nevertheless, a long time ago, in 1997, when the debut album of the project was released, there was nobody but Peter. By this time, he already had four successful albums with HYPOCRISY — and also had some ideas that wouldn’t go with the band’s style.

That’s how the story of PAIN began — the story where eight albums are known and loved for such smashing hits as “End Of The Line,” “Shut Your Mouth,” “Same Old Song,” “Follow Me,” “Coming Home,” and many more. This story also contains strong lyrics, rich arrangements, solid melodies, unflagging energy, killing live shows, and big plans for the future.

Iodine Releasing Classic, Out of Print Records From Six Going on Seven + Garrison Now Available for The First Time In Over 20 Years

WATCH “SEXY LIKE THE TITANIC” VIDEO

SIX GOING ON SEVEN’S SELF-MADE MESS OUT OCTOBER 27 VIA IODINE RECORDINGS

BAND SHARES “SEXY LIKE THE TITANIC” VIDEO — WATCH [[ADD LINK]]

Self-Made Mess is the debut album from Boston’s indie rock/emo band Six Going On Seven. Out of print for over 25 years, this highly influential album helped define a genre that bridged the gap between hardcore influenced emo and indie-rock, with its complex bass and guitar harmonies and sincere vocals. Often referred to as a “band’s band,” Six Going on Seven came up alongside many of the household names we still discuss from the era: Jimmy Eat World, Hot Water Music, and The Get Up Kids, sharing the stage with them and many others.

Originally released on Some Records in 1997 and produced by Brian McTernan at Salad Days Studio, Self-Made Mess is being presented on a limited-edition vinyl pressing with all new artwork and remastered by Jack Shirley (Quicksand, Joyce Manor) at The Atomic Garden.

It arrives via Iodine Recordings on October 27. Get it here.

Today, the band has shared the video for “Sexy Like The Titanic.” Watch it here.

Self-Made Mess was our first full-length, the culmination of three friends woodshedding/gigging around Boston in early days,” the band says. “Follow me here: I drove to Boston in fall of 1994, we played our first show in January of ’95, released a 7” the following year, and made Self-Made Mess in the summer of ’96 — this one was recorded by our friend Brian McTernan after demoing over nine songs the year prior with another great engineer, who abruptly moved to Los Angeles to make a record with The Rolling Sones — true story. Faithful to our live sound, Youth (lost on the young) recorded on a shoestring budget in a small new jersey town (that, a story for another day) — 10 songs remastered for your listening pleasure, enjoy.”

GARRISON TO RE-RELEASE A MILE IN COLD WATER VIA IODINE RECORIDNGS ON OCTOBER 27

SEMINAL ALBUM HAS BEEN OUT OF PRINT FOR 20 YEARS

ORIGINAL LINEUP PLAYING THE MIDDLE EAST DOWNSTAIRS ON OCTOBER 6 WITH ORANGE ISLAND

BAND ALSO SET TO APPEAR AT THE FEST IN FLORIDA

Garrison were born in Boston during the heyday of the prolific late ’90s post-hardcore scene.

Their cohort featured heavy hitters like Piebald, Cave In, and Converge. Following in the footsteps of bands like Quicksand, Drive Like Jehu, and Texas is the Reason, Garrison drew from many influences to create a hyper-melodic sound that ranged from hardcore to emo — all without fitting neatly into any genre. They executed a complex and unique sound, seamlessly combining technical guitar riffs, melodic vocals, and heavy breakdowns in a way that few bands were able to achieve.

Garrison toured relentlessly, playing regularly alongside iconic bands of the era such as The Get Up Kids, Hot Water Music, Taking Back Sunday, and New Found Glory. Shortly after forming, the band found themselves signed to Revelation Records where they released their debut LP A Mile in Cold Water. The record was well received among fans and critics and made a place for itself as a notable release for the post-hardcore movement. The album opens with “After the Fight,” which immediately hooks you with its melody, fast tempo, and emotional breakdowns, highlighting the band’s hardcore roots and complex style. The LP rises with heavier post-hardcore moments, such as “The Dumbest Angel,” and falls with several softer emo ballads, most notably on the somber closer “Favorite Goodbye Fuck.”

Though Garrison went on to release numerous albums on Revelation Records and Iodine Recordings, A Mile in Cold Water remained their most significant and important release. While Garrison never broke in the same way that many of their peers did, this record clearly paved the way forward for many bands that followed in the post-hardcore and emo scenes.

Produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at God City Studio in 2001, Ballou returned in 2023 to completely remix the album to really make these songs shine the way they always intended to sound. Remastered by Jack Shirley (Quicksand, Joyce Manor) at The Atomic Garden. The album is being presented in a special gatefold jacket and features elements of the original art, and new artwork from Dan McCarthy.

The album is available for the first time in 20 years via Iodine Recordings on October 27. Get it here.

Listen to “The Dumbest Angel” here.

Garrison’s original lineup will appear at The Middle East Downstairs in Boston on October 6 with Orange Island. They are also slated to play The Fest in Florida, as well.

Introducing… The Requiem! Newest Fearless Records Signee Shares Double Single

WATCH “DIARY OF A MASOCHIST” VIDEOSTREAM “I’LL BE LATE TO MY FUNERAL”

INTRODUCING THE REQUIEM!

FEARLESS RECORDS WELCOMES BAND TO GLOBAL ROSTER

FEARLESS RECORDS is beyond pleased to welcome Florida rock band THE REQUIEM to its global roster.

To celebrate the new partnership between label and band, The Requiem are sharing not one but TWO singles!

First up is “Diary of Mashochist,” which is a full-on rager. Kicking off with blood-curdling screams and heavy artillery riffing before shifting into melodic high gear, The Requiem pepper their song with unexpected and dramatic flourishes and nuances throughout. It’s an epic and cinematic thrill ride from back to front.

The band shares, “Mostly inspired by the legend Elizabeth Bathory, ‘Diary Of A Masochist’ speaks of someone who despises the skin they live in and does anything possible to change the way they see themselves, no matter how self-destructive or wrong it may be.”

Watch the video here.

I’ll Be Late For My Funeral” is an energetic amalgam of ’00s main stage Warped Tour, Neo-goth, and classic emo, with a twist all its own and without ever sounding too much like the past. Stormy guitars and layered harmonies give the song an extra dose of horsepower.

“‘I’ll Be Late For My Funeral’ is a song that tries to convey the feeling of someone who has been fighting against themselves their entire life,” the band explains. “The title reflects the sentiment that some of us wouldn’t even show up for ourselves at our own funerals from the bad habit of always running away.”

Listen here.

Stay tuned for more from The Requiem, because this is just the beginning of a dark, beautiful, and romantic journey!
